Good, but the controls are frustrating

Amazon Review Dude, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: I really just want to use the control pad and buttons for this game. I think if that was an option then it would be a much better game. Using the stylus isn't nearly as satisfying as a traditional controller setup. I understand that Nintendo wanted to show off the DS's touchscreen capabilities, but it really hurts this game. Also this game really does seem to have a casual appeal. The difficulty and the length of the main story leave something to be desired.

Legend of Zelda: Phairly Hfun (silent H!)

  • Summary: Overall... no. Pretty good in most ways, but only once-through. Not twice. The only thing worth keeping is the rather simple multiplayer, which is inventive and has lasting value.
  • Pros: Good interface, Zelda, and multiplayer! A decent addition to the Zelda series.
  • Cons: Too easy, poor replay value, ARCHERY, and under-complicated. Too small for WindWaker-esque oceanic exploration.

Zelda arrives on the DS at last!

Karen F. Nath "The Music Chronicler", Amazon

  • Summary: Ok, let's face it. If you are a gamer of any sort, you should know that the Legend of Zelda series has undoubtedly been one of (if not the) most influential, innovative, and downright fun ever. I bought this when I was stuck in St. Peter, MN over a weekend. Boy, was it fun. I rarely buy games right after they come out (yeah, I'm a cheapskate), but I paid the $40 up front two days after release. I loved the innovative uses of the DS.

A mixed bag of a Zelda game

S. Young, amazon.co.uk
15 June 2014
  • Summary: Make no mistake, this is a game with some very enjoyable moments but it comes with more flaws than you would expect from a Zelda game. Firstly,using the stylus is very undesirable when it comes to having to use it for controlling Link as opposed to using the D-Pad and buttons. Secondly, having to keep retuning to keep retuning to the very difficult 'Temple of the Oceon King' and facing the 'Phantoms' under a time limit is extremely frustrating.

Unsatifactory presentation

a m kellett, amazon.co.uk
15 December 2013
  • Summary: I ordered the 'new' version of this for a Christmas present for my Grandson and expected the presentation to be as shown - but it does not have the cover as shown in the picture only an instruction book inside which makes it look like a second hand one. I ordered 'The Spirit Tracks' at the same time and this presentation was as shown so makes this one look second rate.

Great game, but ultimately frustrating & got rid of it

  • Summary: I really looked forward to playing this based on the reviews I'd read. It looks great, is inventive & has enjoyable mini games. However, in the end, I traded it in after getting fed up with revisiting the Temple of the Ocean King for yet another time. It just became a chore & not fun. It's a shame, as otherwise I think I'd still be playing it.
