I’m Ready To Talk About The Water Temple

The Water Temple is certainly disorienting, but everybody should just struggle through in my opinion. Keep your bearings and you'll be ok, but there's so much missed if you never make it past the Water Temple!

The game was released in 1998 - I fear Hyrule may have already been lost to Ganondorf’s tyranny...

Haha, only in one of the three possible timelines! ;) Besides, the 3DS remake only came out in 2011, so there's life in the old dog yet.

Imagine being the guy who designed the water temple

Level Designer - "I don't know what I am doing! But something tells me, this will stand the test of time."

Many years later.

Gamer - "So I reached the water temple the other day."

Gamer 2 - "I'm so sorry, did you make it?"

Gamer - "Of course I made it, only took me seventeen hours."

Gamer 2 - "It's not supposed to take that long, not nearly that long."

Gamer - "Shut up, nobody likes you Gamer 2."

3DS version made it a lot easy to navigate through which makes it less frustrating.

I literally got headaches playing the water temple. 1 of the most frustrating game levels of all time

A nice read but felt like it had very little to do with the title until the second to last paragraph - would have liked more detail into the topic that was promiced in the title. I ended up playing Ocarina of Time on the 3DS and had no problem with the water temple, I actually found it to be one of the easiest temples in the game so if you ever want to complete it, perhaps it's worth getting the 3DS version.

I actually considered buying a 3DS just for this game! :)

About time I got around to playing these games!
Shameful, I know.

Water temple was only hard because they never told where the water level switches were and which ones needed to be active to get where.

The temple puzzles and the temple itself is awesome IMO. I enjoy the boss fight a lot as well. (and you fight Dark Link!!)

Not that it was harder, but I never liked the Spirit Temple as the child/adult two-part thing made me feel like it wasn't a cohesive experience. Basically the whole game rushed you through Gerudo Valley/Desert of Colossus that you never spent more time there than needed. No exploring or wandering there. I was always more connected to other places/temples in the game.
