Mousey Gamer review Sat, 27 Feb 2010

Just how different is Zelda to Grand Theft Auto, you be the judge? Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks on the Nintendo DS.

I am a gigantic sucker for the Zelda franchise. The characters, the adventure, the iconic level designs, it's all just so nostalgic for me. Spirit Tracks, like the Legend of Zelda and Ocarina of Time before it, has taken the unique control features of the DS and built totally creative and clever means to solve puzzles. Unlike the shortsighted, boring features of Twilight Princess, this game delivers a constant barrage of a-ha moments that leave you excited for the next level.

Family Gamer review Mon, 14 Dec 2009

The Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks on Nintendo DS is an understated sequel that puts right much of what frustrated in Zelda Phantom Hourglass on the DS. The action shifts from a nautical to a railroad theme as Spirit Tracks follows Wind Waker in art style and Majora's Mask in density of game play. Like Phantom Hourglass before it, The Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks is a fully blown adventure on the diminutive DS and DSi.

Action adventure games are enjoyed for two reasons. They provide a variety of fast action encounters where you are fighting, fleeing or evading some enemy. They also provide a large world in which to explore and adventure. This exploration is usually driven by some particular plot-tension introduced early in the game that you must resolve.

Frugal Gamer review Fri, 27 Nov 2009

The latest Zelda sequel on the Nintendo DS, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, puts players back in control of Link as he investigates the disappearance of the titular Spirit Tracks - magical shackles to keep a vicious Demon King imprisoned under the Earth. With the same excellent touch-screen controls that Phantom Hourglass pioneered, Spirit Tracks offers a few gameplay twists and tells a dramatic story that will keep fans of the series entertained and enthralled for hours.

Acting as a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks takes place 100 years after the events in that game and has you living and working in the Hyrule Kingdom you set off for at the end of Phantom Hourglass. You begin the game as an apprentice railroad engineer and are soon called off to the palace to receive the honour of Royal Engineer, to be bestowed upon you by Princess Zelda herself.
