Summary: Wow. That's one word to describe this game. The graphics and use of the buttons and stylus is amazing. The storyline is interesting and the dungeons are puzzling and incorporate all of the items extremely well. BUT, as with a lot of games, there are some things are I do not like at all. 1. The Temple of the Ocean King is a temple that you have to keep going back to. You have to beat the same levels in order to beat new ones.
Summary: Phantom Hourglass is not only another great game in the Legend of Zelda franchise, but also a game that takes full advantage of the capabilities that the Nintendo DS can offer. The all-touch screen controls are a little clunky, but respond really well. The graphics may seem choppy, but are also very rich in color. The music and sound effects are very good and memorable.
Summary: This game is a very good game. It has some hard parts and easy parts. I have to say, I am a huge Zelda gamer. The game is really fun, always challenging you to think out side the DS. The game has some good puzzles. But they are not as hard as previous installments. (OoT, MM, etc.) The fighting is pretty good. There is alot to do, collecting boat pieces, treasures, maps, ruppees, etc. The game also is not that dark. FOR THE PARENTS: The game's fighting isn't bad.
Summary: The game is really fun. Especially during the story. They make you (the gamer) think you have finnally passed a dungeon, but then the Boss comes back bigger and badder! The game is a little puzzling at some parts, (thats okay) but its not as hard as other zelda games. The gameplay is really epic! (but not SS's) The game really isn't that dark. But its a good sequel to WW.
Summary: This game is great . Its takes me back to like 4 or so years ago when I got my DS and I didn't want it for Zelda but I got the gold zelda DS that came with this game ... I got it for 'NEW Super Mario Bros.' But that got boring so I figured that I'd try this game and I was instantly hooked . The Adventure is amazing , The storyline , the moderate sized array of weaponry , The temples , Different islands , characters , and more !
A nice experience if you enjoy exploration and can bear the graphic style.

Summary: From the day I read about this game in an issue of Nintendo Power I had been highly anticipating this game, while originally it didn't meet my expectations at all, after playing it a second time I have enjoyed it quite a bit. Graphics 3/5: For being released in the middle of the DS's lifespan, Phantom Hourglass has very nice graphics.
Summary: After picking this up and played through it, I was left behind with a good impression, and did not regret buying it. I have played almost all Zelda game there is, and this is a good Zelda game, but not a great one.
Summary: I saw a lot of flaws in Phantom Hourglass that were improved in Spirit Tracks, but I still think that the game could have been better while it was still new. My main problem with the game is its central dungeon. The concept of the hourglass was new and unused, but it turned out badly. Exploring the dungeon quickly became tiresome especially when you were forced to start from the beggining every time.
Summary: The game showed up on time and I started playing it right away. What I notice what there were a couple files still on the game, nothing that I care to complain about. Nothing was wrong in the game play either. My only complaint is that it is not like the Zelda games I am accustomed with. It is more cartoon like and the plot is a little less intense than in others I have played. But it is a continuation of the Wind Waker. Overall I am happy with what I bought.
