Re: Phantom Hourglass. Worst LOZ Game?

I just got around to playing this game and to be honest, I don't see why so many Zelda fans hate it. I've played almost every game in the Zelda franchise and I personally love Phantom Hourglass! The characters were fun and some of the puzzles were actually very hard. =)

It's probably my new favorite handheld title, even beating Link's Awakening!

A modern Zelda game that uses the same music for each dungeon? Yeah, no thanks.

Re: Phantom Hourglass. Worst LOZ Game?

I think both DS Zelda games had great potential that wasn't cashed in on. I loved the touch control, I loved different ideas from each game, I loved the bite-sized dungeons, the innovations, certain pieces of music, characters like Linebeck and Byrne/Staven, and so on. I loved in particular how ST progressed the Adult Timeline Arc in a meaningful way.

That being said, they both suffered from lack of length, lack of side content and in PH's case, the Ocean King Temple's various annoyances. If they had spent 4 years making one great DS Zelda instead of two years each on two average ones, they could've had a long, lengthy Zelda that had all the best elements of those games and twice the content/interactivity. It doesn't help that at times, Phantom Hourglass feels almost like a beta for the main event that is Spirit Tracks.

tl;dr both DS Zelda games are too short and too shallow, they should've created one big awesome one, if that makes sense.

Re: Phantom Hourglass. Worst LOZ Game?

PH was an insult towards Wind Waker imo. :/ Sometimes I just like to consider ST to be the "real" sequel for Wind Waker to be honest, at least its ten times better than PH imo. v_v

It wasn't that bad, I think its biggest flaw was the music. It had no life at all. And the overworld was weird. It just felt more like a beta Spirit Tracks more than anything, really. :/

Re: Phantom Hourglass. Worst LOZ Game?

Yeah I didn't really enjoy Phantom Hourglass that much. I have played way better Zelda games than that. It wasn't bad or anything, I'm just saying it wasn't the "best" one.

Re: Phantom Hourglass. Worst LOZ Game?

I thought Phantom Hourglass was lousy as well, I'd say it's probably the worst one besides AoL, FS, and FSA. It sucked having to go back to the Temple of the Ocean King every f---ing five minutes.
