Summary: A lot of people are saying the gameplay isnt fun and i can sort of understand if your more into the action of zelda games rather then the story,the timeline,challenging yourself. So far this games been somewhat difficult/irritating because of the stylus but I like a good challenge if you can get past this some of the features are really cool well so far , I've only just begun to scratch the surface but i can tell ill enjoy it on a medium scale which is good for a...
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. Her being your sidekick/assistant in the game will always be worse to me than all the other previous ones in the LoZ series.
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. At worst, the developers completely yank you around, forcing you to slowly travel back and forth multiple times between the same locations in fetch quests that are neither fun nor relaxing.
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 thing.
Summary: A lot of people were skeptical of this game because of the whole train situation, but after playing it and getting the whole story, I really liked it. However... this is another one of the kiddie Zelda games. The characters use a limited vocabulary and don't have much depth. I particularly had a problem with Princess Zelda's annoying and plain stupid personality. I grew up on Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, two ~epic~ Zelda games that set a standard for me.
Summary: This game, and Phantom Hourglass before it, emphasize the DS's exclusive features like the stylus and microphone. I'd say that these games put a little too much emphasis on those features. Maybe the developers were pressured to make as much use of these unique features as possible. For the most part, the controls are fine, but there a few things that aren't that intuitive and add an unnecessary level of complexity to the game.
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! The train rides are tedious and add little to the overall gamimg experience. I'd have prefered a free world approach rather then being tethered to that stupid train. The flute, that damn flute!
