Crystalgate posted... It was some time since I played OoT, but wasn't the Water Temple annoying rather than hard?
Yes. It was based around checking every single room at every single water level to grab every single key. You're looking at a lot of water level changing, too, which makes the dungeon that much slower and longer.

Neither temple is particularly intuitive in terms of its design. However, I found the Water Temple significantly more frustrating. My gripes I had with the Water Temple were more or less solved in the Great Bay Temple due to one thing: the Zora mask.
Not having to pause, equip, then unequip the iron boots every other room is a big plus in my book. Having all under water functionality condensed into one mask really streamlined the experience for me.
