As someone who experienced this before/in place of the N64 original, I have no notes. A masterpiece. Wish that it did more to bridge the gaps between diehard fans of the original's complaints and all the great new additions, but eh, as someone who's never played the og, it doesn't impact my opinion.

As of writing this I have yet to play the original. I really enjoyed this one, but why does every Zelda boss have to have a giant eye gimmick? I heart the original MM doesn’t, why did they add it in the remake?

I hated it back in 2015, the "you have a limited time to do things and must do things in certain hours etc" wasn't my cup of tea, a story similar to Shenmue, altough I do not consider returing to this one yet.
But the main problems of this remaster are certainly things like the Zora swimming, the Deku spin and some other minor things like the D-pad, wich had no purpose at all.
Thanks to the Restoration Project, this remaster is so much more enjoyable, it fixes pretty much everything to bring the game much closer to the original N64 game.
I was shocked to be in love with this game so much, the storytelling and the universe are pretty amazing, despite the infinite amount of reused assets from OoT3D and some side quests that are so clever for my little brain so I had to look up online, the dev team knew how to create an amazing game like this, considering the 1 year deadline.
I had a wonderful time with this entry that it may become my favorite Zelda game, and I'll return to the N64 one very soon
But strong advice: if you are planning to play the 3DS version, PLAY IT WITH THE RESTORATION MOD IF YOU CAN.
