I didn't use a guide for this game. It was easy enough I thought. But I don't have a problem with game guides at all. (altough I do avoid them now, so that I don't feel stupid when reading some people's comments about how "bad" they really are.)
I hate it when people put other people down for using a guide. It's just stupid. Not everyone is great at games. If people feel the need to use a guide, then so be it.
I used a guide for a lot (and I stress LOT) of Zelda: TP, but it really didn't take any of the fun out of it IMO. I still enjoyed it enough to draw me back to play it another 5 times!
