I am determined not to continue with the game's story until I've gotten 100 seconds on Cuccoo Dodging. Got to love mini-games that ramp difficulty up from Beginner > Easy > Intermediate > F$%# YOU!!
My record so far is about 68 seconds.
301 seconds...those transitions are a bitch. And yeah, you get 300 rupees for that time. 100 seconds = 100 rupees. Wait till you get the dark world mini game. I CANNOT get a high score for that one!
Anyone else surprised by how....I dunno, melodic the dungeon themes are this time around? Usually they're more just subtle beats and noises. The Desert Palace was a surprise too.
Dude the music is phenomenal in this game! There are THREE different versions of the Hyrule overworld, one when you start the game, one when you start the main quest and another one after you get the master sword.
My opinions of the game so far almost all positive, the only real negative I can say is that I wish I had never played A Link to the Past. I say that because to some minute way I have played this game already. Nostalgia is a great thing but when I know where to go for potions even before I open the plastic of the case then its essentially a recap of an older game. BUT the way they made this game is painstakingly gorgeous! The differences from A Link Between Worlds and A Link to the Past enough to merit its own title. I just wish it didnt flow so closely to ALTTP.
The dungeons are smartly constructed as always, the music has caught me by surprise. The quality of music and sound effects are top notch and sometimes I will let the track loop a couple of times while im in a new dungeon before I start. The 60 fps is a HUGE welcome that makes the experience of playing link in a handheld enjoyable. I wasnt too fond of the past DS titles but this is probably my favorite Zelda to date.
