Dugeon wise I found this to be one of the easiest in Zelda games. I didn't have to look at a walkthrough once as I figured the puzzles out easily by myself. Did I get smarter or did Zelda get easier? (I'd love for it to be the first one, really!) But combat wise I'd say its the hardest out of the 3D titles. You cant rely on your shield as much, you cant spam spin attacks and you drink potions in REAL TIME.
