  • 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.

Good, but the controls are frustrating

Amazon Review Dude, Amazon

  • 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.
