The Myth of Zelda: Ghost Timer

Well, it's been awhile since I've written here, let alone a review, so here's one: this Zelda game is cool. The End.

Just kidding!

So there's this Zelda game for the DS and its name is the Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. It has Link in it. Also, I'm feeling really lazy right now, so here's a brief summary:

  • It's designed just like Wind Waker, but with some improvements, like how the ocean isn't so huge.
  • The game is entirely stylus-controlled, which takes some getting used to, but all things considered, is one of the best all-stylus DS games out there.
  • The stylus has some great benefits, such as writing on maps and drawing paths to sail.
  • It's one of the more difficult Zelda games, but that may be due to the all-stylus controls.
  • Like most Zelda games, there are plenty of sidequests to keep you busy for a long time.
  • The graphics are amazing for a DS game.
  • All-around fun and a must-have for DS owners.
So there you go. And now, some bullets:

  • A fun and addictive Zelda adventure
  • Very similar in some ways to the excellent Wind Waker
  • Lots of side quests and hidden treasures
  • None of the hilarious voice clips from the characters (not even Salvatore [kersploosh!])
  • Some of the controls (such as while fishing) are difficult and not explained very well
This game has earned a Blatantly Biased:

Yeah, man, all I've heard about this game is good stuff. Sounds like a real winner! I mean, if it's anything like Wind Waker, it's gotta be good.
