I never thought I'd say this because Zelda is by far my ALL time favorite franchise in gaming, PERIOD! But to be honest every Zelda game is the same formula of finding some artifact, collecting, etc,. etc. You already rode a boat last game so what now...a train! A demon is destroying the kingdom but wait, wait...first you must become a musician and play a flute. Nothing like being in public blowing into the microphone on the DS like a flaming idiot. Because Nintendo LOVES to force its gimmicks on you. There's a touch screen so make the game entirely controlled ONLY by touch screen and stylus. Not because it betters the gameplay but the touch screen is there so as usual Nintendo forces it on you, no options.
Oh but yes its a magic flute you're using...kind of like the Ocarina...which is sort of like the wind waker wand which...yeah you get the point. I've been playing the same game for ten years or more. Time for something new. Bye-bye Zelda. Next game Link will be in an airplane playing drums and Zelda would be captured..AGAIN! And I'll be spending more than half the game reading endless texts that honestly have nothing to do with the actual game itself. Just "charming" banter about bugs and...ug, I've so outgrown this franchise!!!
you realize that you can't bypass the flute puzzles to go on. And the flute puzzles are pretty specific. And even if you fail eleventy billion times, it won't say here you go and let you on through. No sir.
This game was one of my 2 christmas presents (other being a Ipod Touch), and I didn't really have much concern about it. I dislked Phantom Hourglass a bit, and I thought this game would be the same, but I WAS PROVED WRONG!!! Its a little bit too easy, but I pretty much suck badly at Zelda games, so this might be at the right level for me! So I would reccomend this game to any new Zelda fan as well as any hardcore or regular Zelda fans, or anyone in General. This game gets a A-! Nice job, Miyamoto!! >=D
