I tried to replay this game again recently and rather enjoyed the combat, but I got really frustrated and ended up stopping because of one really obtuse section.

If you don't know already, when you see a blue blob on a table, you have to attempt to talk to it multiple times without leaving the room or you can't make any progress in the game.

I didn't have much opinion on Zelda II until I sat down and cleared Side A over several play sessions.
Every enemy type is a kind of puzzle, because the hardcore types of enemies will often outrange you. The Iron Knuckles might be the posterboy for the game, but only because you need to outviolence them to reliably defeat them. Or just use the jump stab.
But there is so many more enemy types than the Knuckles, the Knuckles are just 10x the assholes because they got shields and run at you fullspeed.

Its kinda dazzling how many games copy a lot of the combat aspects, but without the fine tuned difficulty that makes it such a joy to play.

>> No.6626548

>cleared Side A
Were you playing the FDS version or what?

>Its kinda dazzling how many games copy a lot of the combat aspects, but without the fine tuned difficulty that makes it such a joy to play.
It is a shame, but it's a subtle aspect that's understandably lost; I think the gameplay limitations actually bred greater innovation. I mean, if Zelda II were 3D and made today, the Iron Knuckles would be painfully easy because there's too many ways to defeat them compared to 2D from back in the 80s.

Im not going to tell you your wrong and give my own list because thats borderline autism. I will however question your reasoning. I cannot comprehend how someone can pus LOZ in S then ALTTP in D tier. ALTTP is literally the same game just improved in every way. How is there a big gap between OOT and MM? they are the same fucking game, MM has better aesthetics and OOT had better dungeons. TP was literally OOT modernized with more zany characters and a fuckload more content but you put it in the dump? I guess TP isnt retro but neither is WW. Also LA and OOS/OOA were on par with LOZ and ALTTP

>> No.6628237

>I cannot comprehend how someone can pus LOZ in S then ALTTP in D tier.
AlttP just looks bad to me. And the fact that the bombable walls have cracks thus making it dead obvious is for retards and thus less fun for everyone else.

So you actually enjoy bombing every single bit of wall and burning every single bush? or do you buy guides?
MM is basically an OOT romhack. the best Romhack that is. the only thing original in that game is the Form changing masks and the story. otherwise it plays more like an expansion rather than a sequel

I think the Zelda 1 hidden shit is totally fine for their target audience, namely little kids who have a very different concept of time than their elders. I've watched my 5 year old nephew play games before; in StarTropics, he spent 5 minutes talking to the pig in the first village so that he would flash his butt at the screen. Compared to that, methodically searching for every secret is a casual investment of time.

I think the sad truth for a lot of players is that they just missed the boat on games like this. If you didn't play it as a young kid with infinite time to fritter away on bullshit, then you can't really experience it the way it was meant to be played. It's not really a failing of the game though, as it's doing exactly what it was designed to do. Rather, the people playing it are just unable to deal with their no longer being the target audience for the game.

Zelda 2 is literally Dark Souls, but only the first Dark Souls that has slow methodical gameplay with shield as the standard, the sequels allow you to double hand a weapon all game or even double wield.
I liked Dark Souls (the first one) because it felt like a modern triple A nes game, up to the difficulty.
