Perfect

Debut Zelda title on DS, better with age 10/10

The stylus controls were very awkward and unwanted the first time i played this game, its especially bad since the normal buttons do absolutely nothing outside of windows/menus.

Once you get past the learning curve, especially coming back to it for a second play through years later its really not that bad. The game play is really solid once you get it down and the story is amazing, link and others show more character than even in windwaker. Excellent collectathon aspects, good puzzles + action sections.

the main temple is a little aggravating/dreadful when you don't know what you are doing, but after you gain your full arsenal and figure your way around, traversing through the dungeon for the last few times is a breeze and fun demolishing obstacles that were more annoying the first time around.

Definitely should play again if you were unsure the first time

This game was fun i feel like it was a game showing off what the DS can do back when it came out. Fun fights, interesting puzzles, decent mini games, lots of treasures and ship parts to collect, pretty easy the only semi challenging part is drawing a fast hour glass on the screen but thats not until way later in the game def rent this game if you are a fan of the series.
