Seriously, I just bought this game last week. And I'm only on the third part, lol. And by the first temple I aready had about 980 rupees. Seriously, money making seems much easier than the games on the system, Even though things cost more (Like the dumb girl who sells the power gem, which she doesn't even know what it is. For 500 just because of its color XD), its still easy to obtain them. Personally, I'd rather make money a challenging thing to obtain (as long as the dumb girl doesn't over price things. Lol).
