The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS) - Review

VGChartz
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. The first game laid out the groundwork, Link to the Past introduced the dual world mechanic, Ocarina of Time showed how puzzle solving logic changed in three dimensions, on and on.

  • 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. However, one thing that Zelda has always had going for it is innovative game design, and nowhere is that more evident than in the latest installment of the series, Phantom Hourglass.

Innovative gameplay makes this Zelda soar.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is a sequel to Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on the GameCube, but kids don't need to have played Wind Waker first. The game has bloodless fantasy violence with swords, bombs, and so on, but since the main character gains no experience points from defeating monsters, players can avoid confrontation by side-stepping them in most cases. Aside from the fighting, there's no questionable content to note.

  • Excerpt: Last Christmas, Nintendo's DS handheld was home to a bevy of exciting new releases, including Brownie Brown's first Magical Vacation game in English, Magical Starsign. It was a decent RPG with one fatal flaw - it featured 100% touch screen controls. Gamers had already been complaining about DS games with tacked on touch screen features, and for a lot of people, Magical Starsign was the last straw.

  • Summary: It is nice to finally have a “Zelda” game on my DS. The game isn’t the best thing ever; however, it is very enjoyable in its own right. This is a must buy for any fan of adventure games, Zelda, or the DS in general.
