I looked up some info on this game before I started and thought it was going to be a smaller/shorter game than Link to the Past. since it only had 4 elements you collect and it’s a small cart (though I forget the GBA carts can hold a lot more than SNES carts did.). Instead it was right at twice the length of LTTP!
This is probably because of a massive amount of side quests and random secrets that were added to the game. In fact, there were so many, I ended not doing a few of them. I was going to collect all the figurines, and do the after-game secrets but at 9 hours I was starting to wonder if I could even do the processing and get that humongous file up on YouTube, so i skipped them.
All in all, this was a great game, I really enjoyed all the familiar sounds that can be heard throughout, a lot of music and sound effects from OOT, and the developers really made use of the GBA hardware.
