If you go into the room with the giant statue inside the Spirit Temple, and aim the Hookshot at where the nipples would be, you will find that you can grapple on to them. It's possible this was a joke by Nintendo. See more »

A Video Game to end all Video Games...
28 April 1999 | by (Hastings, Nebraska) – See all my reviews

This Zelda has enchanted our minds with whimsy and fantasy. The lush detail and the riveting story makes it so powerful, so righteous, you'd be saying good-bye to reality within a few minutes. The emotions there had a real touch and added atmosphere to the game. It's like something we'd love to see in a theatre. This is what happened with Titanic, the movie monopolized the movie box office, while Zelda monopolized the video game industry. This is truly the best game of all time... For now. Because later we'll see a better Zelda, and we'll hopefully experience the power and beauty of a new fantasy world.
