Phantom Hourglass Review

November 05, 2007

I’ve been looking forward to the release of the latest in the Zelda series.

Of all the titles in the Legend of Zelda series, some of the most-respected have been for handheld consoles. Link’s Awakening, the Oracle duo, and Minish Cap all manage to combine on-the-road gaming with a certain purity of Zelda-ness. Link’s most recent adventure on the small screen, Phantom Hourglass, generally continues this tradition and introduces a number of new elements to the property. Unique controls, a true sequel, and cel-shaded graphics all make Hourglass stand out from ‘traditional’ Zelda games, and together the whole hangs together fairly well.
