Pros
+First new 2D/Top down Zelda game in the mainline series since Minish Cap which was released two generations ago
+Unique painting movement gameplay which brings innovation to the exploration and gameplay in Zelda series
+Uses nostalgia from Link to the Past heavily in design for enemies, locations, etc
+Renting system which allows you access to all items early in game with the ability to purchase items later in the game
+Hero mode available after completion of the game which increases difficulty

Cons
-Very short
-One of the easiest Zelda games, even easier than A link to the Past
