    A must own for all Zelda fans!

     To start off this review I must say I absolutely love this game. I haven't been this into a Zelda game probably since Wind Waker. The train in the game is surprisingly good, even though I died a couple of times running into other trains at first. It is a really nice addition to the Zelda series and a new formula that is truly enjoyable. It seems that the tracks are long but they really aren't, I didn't even discover the fact that they're warp zones on the tracks until I beat the game. So having it mostly on rails, literally, didn't bother me at all. The main thing that I love about this game is the dungeons and puzzles throughout the game. The only real complaint, if you can call it that, is that it kinda seemed short for a Zelda game. The level designs are amazing and the controls, which can bug you sometimes especially at one of the parts of the final battle at least for me, actually work in the game. The Sand Wand is one of the most innovative items in a Zelda game in a long time, probably since the either the hookshot or the grappling hook. It is a really cool addition to the series and an item I hope they use again in the future. I was so addicted to this game I played it every night before I went to bed and thought about it all day while I was at work. No game has had that affect on me probably since playing MGS4. I am a huge Zelda fan and this is another worthy addition to the series. I especially loved the ending in this game, it is fair superior to some of the ending I have seen in the past I'm talking to you Twilight Princess, I hated that games ending. But that is just my opinion. Finally I hope gamers of all ages will pick this one up Zelda fan or not, but if you are a true Zelda fan you have to own this game as it is another great game in this amazing franchise.

        So me and Nintendo have different ideas on what to do with this Zelda license. I tend to think that the franchise needs an overhaul, a desperate tweaking of its stagnant format. I say enough to tired gameplay ideas, like dungeons built around a bow and arrow, or Link saving a Princess with a Triforce. How radical would it be to play a Legend of Zelda game that doesn’t star Link? On the other hand, Nintendo believes that it’s merely the input methods of the game that have gone flat. People are...

      One Damn Good Adventure Game and One of the Best Games on the DS 0

      Those that have played The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass will be no stranger to the layout of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks.  Spirit Tracks takes the same formula of Phantom Hourglass and replaces it with a train instead of a boat and the Tower of Spirits instead of the Temple of the Ocean King.  I guess this could be a good or bad thing, depending on your tastes, but I felt that Nintendo did make some small enough changes to twist it into a good thing.  Those that have not played Phan...
