Product Description

From Amazon.ca

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is an action/adventure game for the Nintendo DS and DSi that sets Link, the iconic hero of the Legend of Zelda series, on a daring new adventure. The game provides players with a new story, more puzzles, a new mode of transportation--by train--and a new companion in combat, the Phantom. Together these offer up new possibilities for problem-solving, adventure and fun to both longtime and new fans of the franchise alike.

Propulsion and Problem-solving
One of the most prominent features of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is the ability to travel by rail throughout the game. When Link conducts the train, players enjoy a satisfying combination of action and real-time puzzle solving as they determine which track to take and how to best manipulate their speed. When on the train, Link must plot the best route to the end of the line around ever-moving obstacles. While en route, Link might need to fire an onboard cannon at enemies who attack the train or sound the whistle to scare animals off the tracks.

The Phantom
In The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Link has a valuable new companion in combat and puzzle-solving, the Phantom. A faceless knight in a hulking suit of armor with immunities to dangerous elements like fire and magma, the Phantom responds to Link's directional commands. Players can simply tap the Phantom with their stylus to take command of him, then draw a line on the touch screen to direct him where to go. He will engage enemies automatically when he comes within range of them. The stout Phantom can also be used as a platform to carry Link above and over dangers, or even run interference to block Link from harm or help finish off an enemy.

New In-game Items
Spirit Tracks also introduces a variety of new items and weapons to The Legend of Zelda franchise. One of the most notable is the Whirlwind, which Link uses to move items and overturn enemies. Players activate this by blowing into the microphone of the Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system. Other new items include a whip, useful both in combat and in platforming, as well as his train's cannon, which can shoot bombs into the distance.

Map Functionality
As with The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, in Spirit Tracks players can look forward to helpful interactive map functionality. The game map appears on the system's top screen, as opposed to the action on the bottom, and players can draw notes on the in-game maps using the stylus on the touch screen. This allows players to quickly mark spots in the game world of note for later exploration, or to note them as already explored.

3.0 out of 5 stars First Zelda Game April 10 2013
By Evan
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
I picked this up a while ago and haven't reviewed it. Anyway, it's pretty fun. The mechanics of the game are very good, such as Zelda being a ghost/knight that you can control along with Link. The story was very cool, and the train motif is very interesting (but that may be because I like trains) But one of the problems I had with the game was that it was very long, and should've ended a bit sooner. Some of the puzzles are very hard (although that seems to be a LOZ trait) and I had to use walkthroughs quite a few times. It's a pretty good choice for a first Zelda game, though.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Legend of Zelda takes a detour in Spirit Tracks, the pseudo-sequel to 2007's Phantom Hourglass, including trains as a key ingredient. Many classic Zelda elements are present and accounted for, but half the time you will be aboard the train. Zelda purists may cry foul at the changes being introduced here, so what is the end result?

The characters are cel-shaded, and while they''re a bit on the chunky side they''re full of personality. The environments are a tad boxy, and the pixelated textures are an eyesore, but the game's bright and colorful look more than makes up for that. The music is also very good and almost completely original, sparing us tiresome remixes of Zelda themes we've heard many times before.

Zelda: Warrior Princess

I've long felt that Princess Zelda ought to take a more proactive role in these games, and Spirit Tracks gives her that opportunity. Zelda helps out by possessing the Phantom Guards that protect the Tower of Spirits. Once she has taken over an armored suit, she'll follow Link automatically and can be given directions by simply drawing a path on the screen. Players will have to use both characters wisely, and while strictly speaking this is nothing new to the series, it is perhaps the best example yet.

The difficulty of the dungeons and some of the bosses has been cranked up noticeably higher compared to Phantom Hourglass, and feels just right. The Tower of Spirits will be visited several times over the course of the game, but thankfully unlike Phantom Hourglass' Temple of the Ocean King players can skip the floors they have already completed.

The touch-screen controls work just as well as they did in Phantom Hourglass, and the way in which you use Link's assortment of items is particularly fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Faithful to the series Sept. 1 2013
By Pat
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
This game is pretty faithful to the series and feels a lot like Phantom Hourglass. It's a fun game, although not quite comparable to Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword.

Pour les jeux DS, qui sont en général assez enfantins, ce Zelda (ainsi que l'autre Zelda disponible sur DS) est très bien

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, mediocre Zelda Game Dec 3 2012
By Oonai
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Zelda games, but I find that the developers put too much emphasis on the novelty of the DS. Hated using the stylus for everything, and despise the over use of the mic.

Characters were somewhat uninteresting, and the side quests were linear in comparison to other titles.

Still a great game, and worth the purchase for all the regular amazing Zelda aspects

This game is so much fun to play! The stylus controls are easy get used to. The bosses are challenging enough to keep you coming back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Patience is key July 27 2014

It's good the first dungeon sucks and the train travel takes way to long even when you've unlocked the warp portals. Other than those two things it's a lot of fun

5.0 out of 5 stars Zelda for 2009 Dec 17 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let's be honest, it's not the best game ever. It DOES improve on Phantom Hourglass. The change from boat to train is very slick and very little change can be noticed. The controls are a bit more polished.

It's a Zelda game. People will love it whatever I write here. There are some very difficult puzzles, and balancing fighting off badguys while obeying the train signals is tough. Catching rabbits as a sidequest? Very cute. Zelda taking control of Phantoms? Novel.

Family entertainment with a nice storyline. A good buy.
