Wait until you play this game! If anyone here played Shadow Tower knows what I'm talking about. Having all your equipment break was annoying but even more annoying was backtracking up to four areas through one way drops just to repair your weapons. But no one complained about it back then so why is everyone so harsh with Zelda now?

Isn't the game a 97 on Metacritic and the highest score for any recent game?  Guessing it will take home the most GotY awards as well.  I don't see people being that harsh on the game.
