The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS) - Review
7 April 2009
Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda series is one that is characterized by an evolution of gameplay mechanics and ideas, with only one or two exceptions to this rule.

Blurring the Line: The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
25 October 2008
Excerpt: After the many adventures that took place during The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker , Link is finally getting a chance to relax a little bit. Of course, this peace does not last long, and Zelda quickly finds trouble again.
Conclusion: As expected, this portable version does not have the depth of its big brother release on the PC. The game seems to have watered-down somewhat to appeal to the DS crowd. It is bright and colourful, sounds okay and has a decent storyline, but in the end, it just lacks that little bit of polish.
Review: The Legend of Zelda - Phantom Hourglass (DS)
8 September 2008
Excerpt: Nintendo's Legend of Zelda franchise has been through many iterations since its 1986 debut. In 1993, Link's Awakening became the first handheld Zelda, and 1998's Ocarina of Time was touted as Zelda's breakthrough into the 3D realm.
Excerpt: Note: As this game is a direct sequel to Wind Waker, it may contain story spoilers. I'll start off by admitting that I'm not the biggest Zelda fan. I liked the original, Link to the Past, the handheld games, and Wind Waker, but didn't much care for the N64 or Wii games.
Excerpt: I have to admit, an hour or so into Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, it wasn't doing it for me. I wasn't feeling the stylus-only controls, the obvious storyline set-up or the hammy Jack Sparrow rip-off companion.
