Phantom Hourglass is the Most Fun Legend of Zelda Game

The Legend of Zelda is an adventure; a journey; an experience. It is a quest of trial and error; failure and triumph; frustration and delight; light and dark. Zelda is a series full of moral enlightenment and philosophy, and it is these very complexities that have always attracted me to the franchise.

Phantom Hourglass on the Nintendo DS is often criticized for its lack of these elements. Many critics say that while it is a great game, it is not a great Zelda game, and that may very well be true. Dathen Boccabella plays Zelda for its complexities both in gameplay and deeper moral significance. The Wind Waker’s DS sequel does fall short there, however, to Dathen it is actually the most fun installment in the whole franchise.

wind waker is more fun

Canary1331d ago

I'd have to agree. While I loved the controls and the throwback to the old 2D Zelda games, I think Phantom Hourglass was handicapped by a rather lame story. It failed to recapture the wonder and excitement of Wind Waker.

In that department, I think Spirit Tracks succeeded marvelously... but lost the whole 'exploration is fun' tonality that makes the series so special.

So, yeah, ultimately I'd have to agree. Of the "Celda" games, Wind Waker is the best, most complete package.

If I may ask, what didn't you like about Twilight Princess?

SanMarco1331d ago

Twilight princess is such a copycat to OoT.
Skyward sword IMO is a tie with for number with OoT.

Link was so attached to Zelda, I felt I really had to save her cause they really wanted each other. It was a whole new emotion to zelda and the gameplay was nice.

SanMarco: is it a problem TWP is a bit looking like OoT? the 2 games are very different, the start, the context, the story and everything is different. i didn't like the wolf sequences, i think they were boring and with no interest, but it's nice when it's possible to change to wolf at anytime, makes the displacements much faster.

Ok it's taking place in Hyrule but then OoT is a copycat of Link to The Past but each one has its special particularities.

I personaly love the Zeldas in Hyrule there is just much more freedom of movement for example, while other's freedom is faked by water, tracks or flying..

leahcim1331d ago

I do really like Twilight Princess, to me is not the worst is just the less good, I love this saga too much.

And if you notice I love to play Zelda games on the go. Links Awakening its a gem that all game lover should try at least once.

For some reason I'm not very interested in Skyward Sword, even though I loved TP on Wii. OoT is my favorite, and Majora's Mask and Windwaker follow closely behind.
