I hated fighting with wolf Link, mainly because it takes forever for those Bulblins to get back on their feet just so you can attack them again. And not being able to defend wasn't good, either.
Me too. But I did love the 'B'-attack, the ripping Poes' souls, Midna-jumping and howling. And running as Epona isn't always around, I covered much more land as wolf link. I also liked wolf link taking care of the keese & other flying enemies. Saved you the arrow costs
But for the biggest part of the game you DO play with Link, and there are no complaints there. He's still the one with the whole caboodle of items at your disposal, and just handiest to navigate in general, Link + Epona = speed, and of course... Link's sword fighting skills. Nothing kills an enemy or slices up bushes like our trusty (Master) sword. And repels evil, at that. Yeah, go Link, go! [Who can tell me where that quote comes from?
