Ladies and gents, the final boss of Zelda 2, Dark Link is kicking my ass. I’m very close to calling it quits on the game which is a shame.
The biggest issue is that after losing all your lives the game forces you to navigate the entire last dungeon again. And if you reset the console, you start from the opening palace and have to navigate through the entire map to get back to the final dungeon again which can take a little while. This is one example where playing on original hardware is a pain if you need to step away.
After a few losses,I’m really tempted to just watch the ending on YouTube and be done with it since I’ve got other games calling my name. A big reason why is the fact that there are 2 bosses you have to fight it quick succession, and both are fairly difficult. The need to redo so much of the game every time is the biggest bummer since it’s a very long and difficult sequence where so much can go wrong.
I’m going to give it another shot today, but if it doesn’t happen, it may end my playthrough. Wish me luck.
So, what games have done this to you?
