Thumbs down Is DS zelda worth the price?

I've played all other zelda games and enjoy other handheld games, but I am wondering for those who have Phantom Hourglass, and other DS games if it is worth it to get a DS just for PH and a handful of other games, or should I just stick to my trusty Wii?

Any input on other great games on DS would be appreciated as well.

Don't get it for just Phantom Hourglass :/ Get a good few other games too. It would be a waste getting it just for that.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

The DS has a whole bunch of good games, Phantom Hourglass should be far from the only reason to get it. I personally find the likes of Elite Beat Agents, New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart DS to be quite satisfying for the handheld, and I also play games like Phoenix Wright and Metroid Prime Hunters.

Pokemon Platinum, New Super Mario Bros, Advance Wars Days of Ruin, Mario Kart DS, Mario and Luigi 3 (out soon, I hope), Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon, Apollo Justice Ace Attorney, and Kirby Superstar Ultra.

Yeah, get them too.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

With an assortment of good games, the DS is worth the price, especially if you know others with DSes.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

I'd say get one, but not only for PH. I'd say definetly get Chrono Trigger too if you end up buying a DS.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

It is worth it. You can play PH and wait for ST.

DS has a lot of good games, like New Super Mario Bros, PH, Megaman ZXA, Phoenix Wright, Professor Layton, Nintendog, Dust hotel room 215.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

The DS is certainly worth it's own price.

Just getting Phantom Hourglass with a DS is not really worth it, even if PH is a fantastic game. However, the DS is a very, very good system.

Be sure to buy stuff like Mario Kart DS, Advance Wars: Dual Strike, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, basically long games with a lot of content that will keep you busy for a while.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

I'd definitely say to get a DS. Not necessarily for PH(it's a good DS game but not the best of course imo), but there's definitely a lot of great game for it: New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart, Nintendogs, Mario 64, Advance Wars, Castlevania, you get the point.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

If you have any GBA games, then I'd say yes. If not then it's worth waiting for the price to come down. I always avoid first generation products, you can pay less for the better version later. Plus the DSi colors will change and you'll get more of a choice then.

So, looks like I'll be the only person to say "not really". If it were 100% backwards compatible I'd be saying otherwise.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

The Nintendo DS is absolutely worth getting, but not just for Phantom Hourglass ( though it is a DS must-have ).
I could recommend dozens of other games;
like adventure? Super Mario 64 DS. Like racing? Mario Kart DS. Like puzzles? Professor Layton and the Curious Village. Like RPGs? Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. There are MANY more, but those are some that are on my mind right now.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

The ds is worth the price? If you are already wanting a handful of games from the system then it's worth the purchase. When CLub nintendo asked me what I thought Phantom Hourglass was worth I said $34 so, no it's not worth the retail price of $34.99.

Re: Is DS zelda worth the price?

PH is great.
I bought DS for the reason to play the coming Zelda games... But of course, other games caught my attention aswell and there's a plenty of playworthy games on DS.

Buy it just for PH? Well, how big of a Zelda fan are you? It's up to you to decide, but all handheld Zelda games are great.
