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.

Good, but the parts with the hourglass suck.

  • Summary: Ok, this isnt the best Zelda game. The hourglass parts are hard. (they start getting really hard at the northeastern seachart part). It is very annoying. Your hourglass time seems to run out so fast, since you're trying to always trying to figure out what to do. The dungeons, (besides the Ocean King ones) are pretty easy. Once again, I do not think this is one of the best Zelda games... It was enjoyable to me until I got to the northeastern seachart part...

Okay game, but terrible story.

  • Summary: This game made me sad. This sequel to Wind Waker has a bad storyline, and the fact that there is no Ganon makes me mad. All you are doing is trying to find your pirate friend Tetra who was taken by the Ghost Ship. I didn't like the captain character because he was negative and disappointing. But the graphics are really good for the DS, and the sound is great. There is no magic, not a lot of items, and islands are not very big to explore. But this is just my opinion.

Legend of Zelda: Phairly Hfun (silent H!)

groxx, epinions.com
29 March 2008
  • 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.
