while I do agree with some of what you say, I also think that they did attack you in quite large groups.
especially with the little rang of space you had.
now if you were fighting them in an open arena, it may be a little different.
I think nintendo did a good job with it, and really annoyed me with the bokoblins and their horns.
I didn't really have a problem with it. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was epic to watch, and do. I agree with wanting to see Link handle an army, but in no way do I think this was done poorly. I would love to see something like it again, but it might just be something with the Wii's controls that makes it so great, like you, yourself just did that. I didn't find it too easy either, I mean, you had to take on Ghirahim and Demise afterwards.
I loved that sequence. It immediately reminded me of KH's one as well. But I don't think KH was harder as that was a lot of button mashing (which I do love). Actually, I feel that SS was a little more difficult given that I'd rather not lose so many hearts, and there were times when I would just breeze on by easily, but then suddenly find myself in a fickle and get a few hearts knocked out. It's really a sequence to try to wear you down. Currently playing Hero Mode right now, and after reading some of the comments on here, I'm kinda' dreading that part now. XD
Yeah. my first time around it was that way...but I fought them in hero mode through the Lanayru dragon thing, and those annoying things CREAMED ME! I was so mad...UGH! I was like just about to get the awesome sheild too.:/ So, they ARE hard, when you are close to 3 hearts and they take out 2 a hit.
I thought it was executed pretty well actually. I thought it was pretty difficult in Hero Mode. However the first time around, I was so emotionally attached to Zelda and so determined to get to her, I tried sprinting passed the enemies as fast as possible lol
I really enjoyed that last battle, it was way fun. But I agree, at the end, one swipe of the master sword could kill 5 bokoblins. I liked the sequencing (only because I would've died if they didn't) but it would've been way awesomer and more memorable if they all came at you at once. Once again, I think they were trying to make it easy enough for anyone.
