Summary: Link and a pirate leader named Tetra are sailing along the vast blue ocean, when they encounter a mysterious ghost ship. After Tetra boards the ship, she screams for help, with Link attempting to follow, only to fall into the ocean.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Very similar to wind waker without all the unnecceary travel and less fun. The dungeons are surpisingly easy, unlike most other zelda games on the handheld platform.

Summary: I just received my DS for Christmas. This was the first game I purchased for my DS. I am not a expert at gaming, but I must say this game was very fun to play and easy for a "Mom" to understand. I found that the levels advanced nicely and did not jump to anything so hard I had to put the game down.
Enjoyable adventure with unique controls, hurt by several design choices

Summary: Praise: - Stylus driven controls are fun to use, and aren't just a novelty. Items can be used in ways that wouldn't be possible with the d-pad. - Beautiful cel-shaded graphics with expressive characters, fluid animation, and epic boss fights using both screens.
Summary: This game uses the NDS to its full capabilities. You easily move your fairy character around and attack with the touch screen. Also there are many points in the game that use the microphone or require other unique actions that are not in many other DS games (theres at least one point where you need...
