Game Description & Reviews:
Many months have passed since the events of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, and Link, Tetra and Tetra’s band of pirates have set sail in search of new lands. They come across a patch of ocean covered in a dense fog, in which they discover an abandoned ship. Tetra falls into danger when she explores the ship alone, and Link falls into the ocean when he attempts to rescue her. When he washes up unconscious on the shores of a mysterious island, he is awakened by the sound of a fairy’s voice. With the aid of this fairy, he sets off to find Tetra – and his way back to the seas he once knew.
The stylus makes controlling Link easier than ever. Tap on the screen to make Link move, or sweep the stylus around him to swing the sword. Players can even draw a path for his boomerang and send it flying into hard-to-reach targets. Players can stash the map on the top screen for quick reference or drop it to the touch screen to make notes, study enemies, or chart a path for their boat to follow while they man the cannons.
So far, I've loved all of the Legend of Zelda games that have been released. This one was fairly good, but it had it's downfalls.
My biggest complaint would have to be the use of the stylus. I prefer the more classical button style, so this was a disappointment for me. Using the sword was just not the same with the stylus. But then, I played this on a Nintendo DS. I suppose it would be different if you were to use an emulator to play the game.
Otherwise the game was pretty good. Using many similar aspects to the previous Zelda games, including some of the same items as well. The storyline was good, as well as the characters that you meet along the way.
Overall, this game was a slight disappointment to me, as I really loved Ocarina of Time and the Oracle of Seasons/Ages games and this was nothing like it. But it was still very good, and definitely worth the time.
