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.
