Janky to control (on the Wii at least, I haven’t played the Switch version), every bit as patronizingly handholdy as you’ve heard, dungeons are samey and predictable, it has some of the worst boss encounters in the series, and honestly, I don’t really like the story that much. The characters are charming, but the plot feels like it’s going in circles. When I think Zelda, I think adventure, I think exploration, whereas this feels so guided and linear and monotonous. I can pretty confidently call it my least favourite of the Zeldas I’ve played.
That all said, I love Golden King Robot George Washington. And I wish bomb bowling would come back.
