Excellent

#1 Sequel!

This is by far, THE best Zelda sequel Nintendo has ever made!

The fact that this this is the sequel to a best-selling video game, "The Wind Waker", attracted decent attention, but when Japan turned on that DS, things really started to heat up!

This memorable game uses ALL of the DS' features, the touch screen, that's how one attacks, walks/runs, etc., the mic, the buttons, and the controll pad!

The thrill of exploring is what makes this game "Zelda" material, and with this game being an adventure game, I don't see how it could get any better! Temples and and bosses are classic in the Zelda games, but this one twists things up, you fight with the touch screen (sword, roll attacks, etc.)!

This game has beautiful graphics and a more-than-decent storyline (AWESOME!).

Multiplayer is pretty great... when you play as Link, don't get mewrong, the Phantoms are awesome, too, but just not as fun as playing as Link because they go in the path you draw for them (and the stylus touch screen can get kinda' annoying because it's a little unaccurate... but it's still great!!)

Overall:

Graphics: 9.5
Gameplay: 10
Storyline: 9.5
Multiplayer: 9

AVERAGE: 9.5

The Phantom Hourglass is another spectacular game. The cell-shaded graphics look very nice and the game play is quite unique, using all of the features of the DS. Buy the game. :)
