I've heard many different things but in past years it seemed like the bandwagon of cool was to dislike TP. Very funny as Midna was funnily enough usually praised.
For me the game was alright, while some parts reminded me of past games I felt it was differently enough, plus I enjoyed the easter eggs from Ocarina like the picture at the fishing den or that the girl scratches just like the Lake Hylia owner used to, haha.
I want to play it again. I've only finished this game once.
