Everything about this game from its stunning visuals to its intuitive controls is an astounding experience. The quality of a Nintendo developed game is evidenced here with a pixel-perfect release of Zelda Phantom Hourglass. Its arrival on the DS meets all the expectations I had for a Zelda game and is an essential purchase for any videogame fan.

The likes of WindWaker and Twilight Princess haven't been received with the same enthusiasm as older titles such as Ocarina of Time.

It was with considerable glee that I ripped the wrapping off the game as soon as it dropped through my doorbox.
