CVG review: 10/10 to The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

All the traditional Zelda elements are here - from Link's trusty sword and shield to his boomerang, cartoon bombs and bow-and-arrow - but thanks to the DS' touch screen interface, everything feels fresh and new again. The boomerang, in particular, is more useful than ever. Switches are often out of sight but, thanks to the boomerang, not out of reach: just draw a line from Link to your desired boomerang target (even if that means sending it down the corridor and round the corner) and it'll come zipping back, having flicked a switch or collected a key. Think laterally and Phantom Hourglass will pat you on the back, say "Well done!" and let you through to the next area. Perfect satisfaction: a job well done.

They really loved this game. I haven't played it but I think critics should give more 10s. Its been years since games like Ocarina Of Time and some Tony Hawk games got full 10.

I agree man, I wish I had a DS now just for this game, it looks really good.

Well done indeed. Full use of the touch screen and a rock solid score. Will be fun to play

if they added a hot coffee type minigame with link, zelda and touchscreen controls, i think it could be an 11
