Another great Zelda game.,
This review is from: The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
First off I love the Zelda games they are one of my favourite games so I may not be as critical as other people but I can tell you how this ranks compared to the Zelda games I have played in the past.
Ocarina of time (N64)
Links awakening DX (Gameboy colour)
Wind waker (Cube)
Twilight princess (wii)
Phantom hourglass (DS)
Unfortunately I missed Majoras mask which I really regret but may try to play in the future.
I am not going to give away any spoilers so I can not go in to as much detail as I would like, the real fun in the Zelda games is discovering things out for yourself.
A common statement that often comes up when reviewing any Zelda game is its like the other games and you know what to expect. Well this can really be said of any sequel after all the GTA games are all alike apart from the size of the game and minor mechanics that are put in place and some of us always want more. You also don't need to have played any other Zelda game as they are all separate storeys that only have minor links (no pun intended) to other games
The thing that really makes a Zelda game is the gimmicks and equipment and of course the land you have to explore, and in all these cases there are some excellent things to see and do in Spirit. I loved Phantom on the DS and the good news is that Spirit is better in almost every way and its harder which was one of the draw backs in Phantom. This really is a brilliant Zelda Game and one of the best you will play even being on the DS. There is some really clever use of the DS and games like this are the reason despite other hand held's being technically superior that the DS still out shines them.
This is one of the best Zelda games I have played and if you want to unlock everything it will last you a while.
