Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

I wasn’t going to buy this just yet, as I have a mountain of games to work through as it is, but it’s £21 at Asda, and being a first party Nintendo game is unlikely to ever be much cheaper than that.

So I bought it, but then I didn’t intend on playing it, as I have a mountain of games to work through as it is, but somehow it ended up in my DS.

And it is lovely. As everyone on the planet is probably aware, it’s a sequel, of sorts, to The Wind Waker on the Gamecube, and shares the same graphical style. However, you control it all using pretty much only the stylus (which takes some getting used to – especially rolling). So far, I’ve only obtained a sword, been “trained” on it, and made my way through a cave to the local port. Now I need to find some bloke who owns a ship.

  1. And IMO the whole game goes downhill from there. Once the initial wow factor wears off from the amazing “Zelda on DS looking gorgeous”. The gameplay becomes boring, repetitive and predictable. Disappointing, but then it is Zelda so perhaps I shouldn’t expect any more.
