Well I loved it more or less from the start and the path I took saw me encounter various enemies along the way. I had some of these issues with it though, for sure, but rather when I hit 40-50 hours in. Then the final 1/3 of the game was utterly joyous and I overlooked them.
Some of the things you miss? They’ll arrive in some form or another, if you make the effort to go find them or chance upon them. There are some dungeons and lengthier shrines too, but nothing as chunky as the larger ones from the last few 3D Zelda’s.
Stick with it though for a bit longer. Many of the things you dislike so far will come to make sense or become less of a barrier in a few hours time.
(This is probably like when people say to me 'Give Game of Thrones 2 series then it starts to get REALLY good. And I’m, like… 20 hours to start being good? I’m out…)
