Summary: A little pricey, but had to get it for my boyfriend as he collects all things Nintendo and still hadn't had this one. Excited to see it in action. Had to cancel my first order of it and reorder, as the shipping for the original ended up being way past the originally stated date.
Summary: Let me just say that this game has some of the most fun gameplay elements I've seen in a while. Cramming everything onto the touch screen was a risk that Nintendo took, but it payed off beautifully. There are only a few areas of the game where touch control seems contrived or gimmicky.

Summary: The controls are ridiculous. They tried way too hard to incorporate the touch screen into even basic controls like movement. It makes the game difficult to even play. The game itself can be fun, but the poor controls really, REALLY hamper the experience.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I simply love the Zelda Gaming series so When I saw there was a Ds version I rushed out to buy stright away! this is classic Zelda gaming with a twist. In that you have to use the stylus to control Link which is fine at first but does make your hand go numb after a while of hard adventuring.
Summary: Being a huge Zelda fan , I was excited to buy this game, but was pretty let down by how easy it was to figure everything out. Usually Zelda games are more challenging and not so obvious. I got so bored of this one I sold it. Would recommend it for kids.
