    I remember I was reading a walkthrough and it mentioned that there's a point in the water temple when you have one key and a possible two doors to unlock, and if you unlock the wrong one your game is rooted and you need to restart because there isn't another key in the room. Last time I played OoT I stopped playing at the water temple too because I just got stuck... then again I was pretty young though.

    It's possible but it doesn't happen unless you try to.

    Do you know if it can happen in the 3DS version? If so, then just make a copy of your save to a different slot before starting the water temple. In fact, you should probably do so before starting any temple just in case you get stuck.

    A game like Zelda would never be incomplete like this, I got every key on the 3DS version of water temple and all doors unlocked with every room visited, so no you don't need to make an extra save.

    Personally I struggled with the Water Temple first time there, as did most of my friends, because we failed to notice that when you raise the water level in the central column, there's a secret passage leading to a key underneath the block that floats up. We seriously never noticed it. Now the 3DS version has the courtesy to avoid such simple mistakes by having it show you every time that block raises. Only one step below a big neon sign on the wall saying 'DOWN HERE DUMBASS'.

    That and the Iron Boots thing was extremely annoying, having to pause the game to equip them. And Shadow Link was a pain in the arse, took us ages to get past that SOB.

    The block part really did ease things out, but personally speaking, in all the games I play, I look around every single piece of stuff I move/destroy etc, be it a Zelda game or some other adventure title, that's just the way I play.

    Yes, they changed what one or two doors that have locks on them. I noticed this when going threw the fire temple. When I played threw it on the GC disc, I always missed a key and ended up doing most of the temple rooms in a different order than the official guide recommends. This is no longer possibly, has you need the key right away to continue since they bought a lock on the next door and removed it from another.

    In some early copies of OOT 64, you could glitch keeping a key from the treasure game and use that key in the water temple. The key would only work on one door making it useless, if you already opened said door in the water temple. Friend of mine used to use this glitch to prevent himself from getting stuck. I don't remember how it was done anymore. I asked him about it the other day and he doesn't remember how to preform the glitch anymore. All we do remember was it was hard to do and involved exact timing with something.

    It's the most easiest temple (Shadow Temple), you just didn't have Lens Of Truth.

    I find it a little bit funny... I'm 23 now, meaning I was 10 when the game was released. I didn't have any problems with the water temple at all... didn't even find it annoying with the boots or anything. However I found it scary. Just like the under water levels of banjo kazooie, mario 64, etc. [​IMG]

    I used to be scared of water levels when I was younger too, not anymore, but the scariest level of all times would be the sonic adventure water level.

    Water snake level, if you fell down, you fell into a bottomless pit of water.

    This! It just took ages to find, because I never actually noticed/thought about it. It's not that it was difficult, it was just so unassuming. Some random platform that happened to rise up, it isn't something most people would think about.

    I never actually found the equipping/unequipping of the iron boots a problem tbh, even though you had to go through the long winded menu. Maybe that's just me?

    Also there's a surprising number of people who quit playing. I could never do that lol, I have to keep playing until the end.

    In the 3DS version, it shows the hole under that platform when it rises.

    Also, back in the n64 versions, door that lead tp places where you can change water level weren't colored, so finding the door wasn't that easy. Unless you remember which one it was, getting lost would have been easy.

    Easily the best Temple in any Zelda game. I still have yet to fall in love with one since.

    But from what I gathered, it's difficult for some people for finding the keys, using them in the right door, and changing the water levels.

    For some, it's hard because they couldn't be fucked with hitting the red button then Z. So really it wasn't hard, people were just lazy.

    I went through the temple as a kid, it was easily the best temple ever. Had absolutely no troubles with it at all. Imo, that's how every temple in a Zelda game should be, a challenge.

    The Water Temple wasn't hard, it was annoying and irritating for the following reasons:

    -The Nintendo 64's bland textures making it harder to spot the water levels.
    -Switching from the Iron Boots.
    -If you missed a key, you had to back track which can be difficult in this sort of temple.
    -The Nintendo 64 version didn't show the hole after the platform rises when you switch on the second water level.
