    Anyone who has, was the game easy or hard? Any secrets you guys wanna share that I might've not yet discovered? I think I'm missing a few heart containers and a lot of ship parts. And am I suppose to have a better shield than the wooden one?

    I think the game in general was easy, but the final boss was quite hard IMO.
    Ive already died 2 times, and I still havent beat him.
    But the main reason why I die, is because I cant draw that 8 correctly, so you can stop time for a few secs.
    Any tips?

    You can buy a heart container sometimes, Ive bought one on Beedle's ship and one on Mercay Island in the shop.

    Didnt find a better shield.

    The whole game was easy but fun the whole way through and I was impressed by how well they used the DS.

    This is actually the first Zelda game I've ever completed I usually get bored or just start doing something else and forget about it.

    I just drew it very small and very quickly. At first I couldn't do it at all but by the time I finally beat the final boss I was doing it every time.

    I too thought the game was very easy until the final boss and that was just hard to control, not hard to beat. All in all I was very satisfied with the game besides the fact that you can't restart your completed game with all of the ship parts that you get. In the final dungeon I got like 5 ship parts that I never got around to using.

    I really like playing through for knowing the storyline of the game. Not only that, but I'm so horrible that I die A LOT and have to play the part over and over and over again. I got so sick of that now so I'm completing the game with my AR, just for the sake of infinite health. Call me a cheater all you want, but I just love to play videogames and I hate dying 5646879832235456 times. Certain games I can get through without it - but others are just nearly impossible. Like Trauma Center Under the Knife. That was hell just trying to complete.

    You can load up your last save and it'll plop you before the final battle so you can finish collecting items and whatnot.

    I liked the game, it showed that the DS is capable of more than the same ol' gimmicky things all the time and it played really well.

    I found the game really easy though, I never lost more than 2 hearts.

    For those that are finding the game kind of hard, the wisdom fairy will be infinitely more useful to you than the courage or power ones. At level 1 you take 1/2 damage and at level 2 you take 1/4 damage.

    Assuming of course that you've found enough gems to upgrade your fairies.

    You never get a better shield, but equipping the powered up blue(?) fairy raises your defense, that's kind of the same.

    Sweet, reading over this makes me kinda want to go back to my old save and find some more stuff. I thought that I had found a good number of the things and just wasn't gonna bother with the game for a while.

    I got to the point where I was supposed to deliver mail to the mermaid and chase after the ghost ship.....I just sort of got bored and quit playing. Other games came out and I moved on to them.......I very rarely finish games. I figure that way I always have something to go back to, although I never seem to actually get back to them. [​IMG]

    I heard rumors that there's also an uncharted island in the shape of Tingle's head.
