Tan's review:

For me this is one of the best Zelda games of all time. I played this constantly until I had beaten it, and I still pick it up almost daily to continue seeking treasure. Here's the rundown about what I liked about this game:

  • Excellent controls and use for the touch screen, very natural and slick.
  • High quality visuals and sound, it's hard to believe this is a DS game, the N64 could never have pulled this off.
  • Many sidequests and treasures to be found, drawing notes on the screen and writing runes for quick travel and puzzles is very intuitive.
  • Classic Legend of Zelda story that although appears tired and repetitive at first, finishes off on a high note leaving you very satisfied.
  • Replay value even after you beat the game, you'll find yourself wanting to finish the collecting side-quests and making new high scores in the mini-games.

Overall I give this game a 9.5/10. If you love the Zelda series you'll love it, and whether your a casual player who finds many games difficult or a veteran of gaming you'll find this game's charm irresistable.
