===Paying Attention=== I have a little bit of an obsession. In fact, I have a few, some stranger than others. Thankfully today I'll be telling you about the more socially acceptable ones. I wouldn't say that I'm a gamer (or a Gaymer as a million horrid little gay-gamers are now proudly calling themselves, urgh, spit) but I do, very occasionally, fall madly in love with a game. The only games that have managed to have this effect on me were as follows: Goldeneye (N64) Quack Attack (Snes) The Prince of Persia (Playstation and later the Wii) and The Legend of Zelda (Various Nintendo consoles). The first three slowly lost their charm over the years either due to ... Read the complete review

I've never been a big fan of the Zelda series of games so I'm not actually sure what made me buy this. It was one of those odd impulse buys that you regret somewhat once you've actually thought about it a bit. So it stayed in my game case for quite a while without being played, until I finally got irritated at myself decided it was a massive waste and actually tried it! Needless to say I wasn't expecting a great amount from it but you'll be glad to hear that I was pleasantly surprised by the game. ===Background=== Anyone who has ever owned a games console and most of those who haven't will surely have heard of Zelda. But for those who haven't for one ... Read the complete review

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass is the first game in the Zelda series to see a release on the Nintendo DS. As such it has a lot to prove, not only in proving that the DS is capable of adapting to the series' varied gameplay but also demonstrating that the massive and lengthy stories that the series is famous for can be squeezed into one of those tiny little cartridges. It rises to both these challenges superbly. Firstly, Phantom Hourglass is a little unusual in the series in that it follows on directly from a previous game. Most entries in the series take regular components, the hero Link, the Princess Zelda and the villain Ganon and then place them in ... Read the complete review

The Legend of Zelda is one of the longest-running and most popular video game franchises ever to be created. It's spanned tons of games, almost ten consoles, and more than 15 years. And yet still, we keep getting them. And, for the most part, they remain good. Yes, it's true that Zelda games of late have been somewhat disappointing. Twilight Princess, released for the Wii at its launch, was fun, but criticized by fans as being too simple and easy, and too similar to past Zelda games. Wind Waker, on the contrary, was criticized for just the opposite. It also was far too short and simple, but it's graphical style in particular was a huge departure from the Zelda ...

Phantom Hourglass was the first DS Zelda game and it used visuals close to those of WindWaker on the gamecube; bright and colourful cell-shaded graphics. I love the way the visuals and music really come together to make you feel like a child again, on a wonderful adventure. The touchscreen controls work very well for this game, something I was originally concerned about. But my fears were put to rest after 5 minutes with the game. It is very simple, hold on the screen to move somewhere, or strike across an enemy to swish your sword at them. Holding a trigger button allows you to use your secondary weapon, which usually consists of you drawing a path for a bomb ... Read the complete review
