I'm actually enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would. I find the gameplay kinda fun and a bit refreshing despite the amount of rage it can induce sometimes. Though I gotta admit, I did abuse the Restore Points to some degree due to several unfair situations and not knowing how to save without dying until just a few hours ago. I am finally halfway through the game (Just got the raft and traveled to another area), and am wondering how people managed to get around without using a strategy guide back then.

Due to me lacking internet access most of the time during the day, I couldn't access a guide and it literally took me a couple hours to find out where I'm supposed to go once I reached the town with the river. And even then it was only by accident that I discovered Bagu hidden in the forest! I also didn't find out how to get the Life Spell until after I beat the 3rd palace (I swear, the knight enemies in that place nearly caused me to rage quit this game forever >.>), and even that was also by accident because I was trying to see if that one lady lost her mirror in town since I couldn't find it anywhere on the overworld.

Well, enough of my ranting. To those of you that have bought it or played the original/other versions of the game, what were your thoughts?

I'll tell you how I figured it out without the internet: trial-and-error, and try everything. And I mean everything. Zelda 2 was a little better than its predecessor with having to deal with hidden items, this game was more about just trying to muscle (or memorize) your way to victory. I didn't know about the exploits you can cause to some of the enemies, but after playing it for so long, I eventually figured it out some of it by myself.

Yep, it's a challenging game, and even more so when you're used to the modern Zeldas by comparison.

I've played and beat it numerous times over the last twenty five or so years. Now that I have save states, I'm abusing the hell out of them.

Lol. I thank Nintendo Power(R.I.P.) for guiding me through most of this game back in the day.

I am not exactly sure about this, as I use my debit card. I think Target and/or Gamestop might have them. As for pre-paid credit cards, I don't see why not.

Do we really need to worry about spoilers for a game that's over twenty years old?

It is my favorite Zelda. Primarily for its difficulty.
