Summary: Spirit Tracks is a great game held back by a terrible, terrible travel mechanic. The dungeons in this game are often some of the most enjoyable of any Zelda game. They are often quite simple, but this creates a momentum where you never feel stuck or frustrated.
Summary: I'm a long time fan of the Zelda series, I've played the installments on every console and handheld. While this game is fun, it has some series drawbacks. Graphics, music,and most of the gameplay, all fun. The really poor features are the train and that damn flute!
Summary: When I first heard this game was coming out, I was so happy. The first game, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, was amazing. It was probably one of the best games for DS, with over 20 hours of game time. It was fun, challenging, and was the first DS game that has made me genuinely laugh.
Summary: The only Zelda games I've beaten before this game were Link's awakening (for Gameboy) and A Link to the Past (great SNES game) I would have gotten Phantom hourglass except for the reviews noting its constant backtracking. I will note upfront that I'm not a fan of super cutesie Link.
Summary: Honestly, I wouldn't pay more than $25 for this guide, and since it was $24.99 shipped at B & N, I didn't. I would consider this more of a hint book than an actual walk-through (although it depends upon how one defines 'strategy guide'), so don't expect it to tell you how to do every single little...
Summary: I don't know what I expected from this game to be honest. I think I expected a game that was similar to Phantom Hourglass but ended up with this bland and long game. Needless to say, I bought this months back and I have yet to finish it because of Zelda's whining and bickering in the game.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game as I had a great time with the Phantom Hourglass, but as the game develops the framing mechanism of the train becomes more and more intrusive and time-wasting, preventing me from getting to the parts of the game that I actually want to play.
