The Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks

Family Friendly Gaming

  • Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda has been one of the more controversial franchises of recent years. The franchise took a dark turn on the Wii. The Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks is the second Nintendo DS video game that takes the franchise in a different direction. Trains are the main themes of this Zelda game. The technology has increased to the locomotive. This feels weird at first, but Nintendo was able to pull it off.

  • Summary: Spirit Tracks is a mixed experience the likes of which hasn’t been witnessed from the legendary franchise since Zelda II: The Adventure of Link on the NES. Like that entry, this handheld adventure is sure to win over some with its quirky charm and brilliant dungeon design. But first those fans will have to get over the linear fetch-questing made necessary by the train, a design decision that lends the game a unique mode of transport while simultaneously robbing it of the...

I Love Princess Zelda, and When I Grow Up, I'm Going to Marry Her!

  • Excerpt: The last time The Legend of Zelda made its way onto the Nintendo DS, it met with mixed response . While generally positive, most people noted a lack of polish that detracted from Phantom Hourglass 's overall appeal. Following in its footsteps, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks improves on its predecessor in nearly every way, but still comes short of greatness. Spirit Tracks takes us to the world of Hyrule a hundred years after the events of Phantom Hourglass .

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Review

  • Summary: " The Legend Of Zelda: Spirit Tracks " is not only not as good as the previous DS zelda game, but is not as good quality as other Zelda games on other consoles. I love this series, and so this is pretty disappointing. For all the letdowns- the boring train driving, appalling multiplayer, and a general lack of innovation, the game still has plenty of high points.

Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Accessibility Review

  • Excerpt: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks was released December 7, 2009 for the Nintendo DS. The game was both developed and published by Nintendo and done in the same cel-shaded art style as The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The plot is, in a word, Zelda. Spirits capture an evil foe, villains want to resurrect, and release said foe. Surprisingly, Zelda isn't kidnapped in this game, only her body, and her spirit travels with you.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Review (DS)

  • Summary: There is a very good game here, it just takes a few hours of sifting through boring segments and bad gimmicks to find it. There is much missed potential here, yet overall Spirit Tracks is a fairly good game.

  • Conclusion: Spirit Tracks is the weakest title in the series. It isn't a bad game, but it symbolizes a need to retire Link before his career is tarnished.

  • Excerpt: Going into The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, I had low expectations. Phantom Hourglass was fun, but far from amazing, and I expected a similar experience with its sequel. That said, I was still disappointed. Spirit Tracks is hardly a bad game, but it falls short of series' standards, mostly due to the monstrous mechanic that the developers foolishly decided to build the game around: the train. Spirit Tracks' gimmick is train travel.
