This game is lots of fun unless you are traveling by train some place. It takes forever, even with the "warp" feature. But game play is awesome and link is a cutie poototie as always!

As is to be expected from a Zelda game, Spirit Tracks provides fun puzzles and challenging temples. Some "mini games" or "sidequests" can prove frustrating to try and complete but all are doable. The main quest is long enough and fits the same structure as most other Zelda games. I spent time trying to get every heart container and rabbit and piece of treasure I could, etcetc and I put a good amount of hours into the game (at least 20-30) which is great for a handheld game.

I definately recommend Spirit Tracks for those that want a full-length Zelda adventure in a handheld console. Very fun game!

Nintendo kept what worked with "Phantom Hourglass", but improved upon it in just about every conceivable way. The rolling attack is much easier to execute, and some of the new items (like the Whip and the Sand Wand) are pretty cool. Best of all, Nintendo doesn't force another Temple of the Ocean King upon us; there is one, large, central dungeon that you have to keep revisiting throughout the game, but you don't have to slog through the same rooms and the same puzzles each time. You can just go right on ahead to the next level. Also, Princess Zelda is absolutely adorable. Driving the train around is fun for the most part, though it can get tedious late in the game. And the final leg of the quest can be a little annoying, thanks to a long and complicated dungeon that seems to go on forever, and a couple of irritating boss battles.

Overall, if you're a fan of Zelda in general and "Phantom Hourglass" in particular, you should definitely check this game out.
