The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass


7/10

This game is worth adding to the collection of any Zelda fan. This game is the sequel to The Wind Waker on Gamecube. It takes place on the Great Sea just as Wind Waker does; it also has the cell-shaded graphics. The key difference is the top down perspective (think: The Legend of Zelda). Another difference is obviously the stylus control system, button use is totally optional, but their use is only to open menus. Another important difference was the inclusion of a temple that you must go in to multiple times. This temple is where you collect your map pieces, which allow you to go to other parts of the Great Sea. This temple is also timed, which was new to the series. Also, new is the inclusion of enemies that are (mostly) impossible to defeat (you gain the ability later in the game). Overall this game is great. Even with its flaws I suggest you buy it. It is worth every penny.
