Zelda Skyward Sword is easier than Ocarina Of Time

The Legend Of Zelda Skyward Sword is easier than Ocarina Of Time and Twilight Princess according to ONM. Yet with 70+ hours of gameplay, does this matter? ONM ask the question... (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Wii)

Makes sense, with the new control scheme there will be a large learning curve.

NOT AGAIN.......freakin only prob with zelda games, too damn easy. come on my bro beat OoT 3 times without dying and he was 5.....skyward is even easier.....greeeeat.

w/e still fun. least its 70 hours unlike OoT being 15 hours

Edit @The EatingVodka

ummmm dunno how slow you played it but yes it was 15-20 hours. even faster when you play it the 2nd time ofcourse.

you barley have to fight any enemies unless you need a key or its a boss.

unless you were just proceeding slowly and pacing yourself dunno how you got more than 20 hours

I talk to every person I meet, listen to the music etc

Well the franchise damn well doesn't need to be any easier that's for sure O.o though I suspect the new battle system will add a degree of skill and challenge to the mix.

70+ hours is a big plus though, so hopefully the game makes up for any shortcomings with content.

Ocarina of Time was definitely like 15 hours.

Wind Waker was around 20 hours.

Twilight Princess was around 30 hours.

IMO OoT was waay hard for me x) As soon as I came to the water temple I was like: "Errr! F'ck it!"

So this is a plus for me!

your comment is whats wrong with gaming lately -_-

to many easy games, and the softening of games that had some challenge.

OoT was easy as takin a crap for a 1 year old on a prune juice diet.

game is fun, flows well, makes you think for a milisecond but thats all.

i hate how easy they made mario and metroid games, but now they are making zelda even easier.....points off already for me. hopefully everything else makes up for those points.....but challenge is key to me in any game.

doesnt mean it has to be dark souls difficult, i just dont want it to feel like im watching sesame street at 26 years old......easy games make me feel dumb and like the dev has no faith in my skills


and people like you who cant take other peoples opinions are the type of people who dont get along with others well. we are different people, we have different opinions. get over it. if i said the game is too easy and he has trouble with it so what? i didnt insult him, some people know they struggle in certain areas, i admit when im wrong or weak.

get over yourself lol, wow

Your comment is what's wrong with gaming as of late; too many judgmental pricks.
LoaMcLoa  +   1409d ago
Oh yeah? Well, that's like... you know.. Your opinion, man.

I do like a challenge, but just not for an adventure-game.. I prefer a more fluid, straight-forward gameplay when it comes to that.

But I'm not saying that they should change the formula, or the game in any way for that matter. I just find the easier difficulty for a new game to be more appealing for me.
Eamon  +   1409d ago
Umm, I completely disagree with the author of this article.

I played the Ghirahim boss battle and it was one of the hardest boss battles in all the Zelda games I've played.

And we can be sure that this boss battle is probably one of the easier ones in Skyward Sword.
K92  +   1408d ago
My brother played the Ghirahim boss battle as well, and he said the exact same thing as you.
wingman32x  +   1409d ago
I'm still excited for it. With Zelda, it's all about the story and atmosphere for me anyway.

Ocarina of time is pretty hard... in the 3DS version of master quest. The Fire Temple is one of the hardest dungeons I've played in a 3D Zelda game.
Sobari  +   1409d ago
>Implying OoT was hard.

You could easily do a no-damage run of almost any Zelda game past Link to the Past, with the exception of Majora's Mask.
jacksonmichael  +   1408d ago
I wouldn't say no-damage. No continue, maybe. I mean... Something would distract you, be it your cat, or the pizza man... You would slip up at least once.
ignorantsonsof_  +   1409d ago
Uhhhh what? From all the gameplay videos i've seen the enemies do even more damage to you than in majora's mask, which is easily the most difficult 3D Zelda game at the moment. And ocarina of time was only "hard" because of how new most of the gameplay elements were at the time, since it was an earlier 3D game. If you play it today you'd laugh at how easy it is.

I will still purchase Skyward Sword on day 1, but this is disappointing. First Miyamoto LIES about the game length (50 to 100 hours, means no less than 50 hours!), and now this.

Although i don't remember Nintendo making any promises about the game's difficulty level, i was hoping for a challenge game to keep me busy until the WiiU's release.

What happened to bringing back the hardcore? Did they forget who they are making this game for? Nintendo fans don't get much more hardcore than Zelda! It is the 25th anniversary for crying out loud! The last Zelda game for the Wii! Make this game tough as nails!
