Product Description

Amazon.com

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zelda is back-and better. December 7, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Phantom Hourglass, for me, was a disappointment. I found it to be EXTREMELY repetitive because you had to go back to the same dungeon after every mission and solve the same puzzles over and over again.

Luckily, Spirit Tracks removes this problem, because every time you go back to the "Spirit Tower", you have to solve a different level(or floor) of the tower.

There is no button control scheme, but the stylus controls work fine.

Graphics are REALLY nice. Your jaw will drop when you see some of the bosses.

Train rides are a bit monotonous, especially when you have to travel all over the place.

Puzzles are entertaining as always, and Spirit Tacks is "different" because you have a Phantom helper at some points in the game.

Overall, an enjoyable way to kill, say, 20-30 hours. Also, there are new weapons in this game; certainly an improvement. I am absolutely sure this game will sell like hotcakes for the holiday season.

Note: If your planning on this as a gift, your target audience should be 10+. Some puzzles are fairly challenging, make sure to take note of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Addition to the Series December 10, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had my expectations set pretty low for this game, Link using a train didn't seem to appeal to me. Also, Phantom Hourglass was a disappointment to me so I was expecting a bit more disappointment.
When I put Spirit Tracks in my DS I was actually surprised on how good the game was. So I'll split everything up.

Movement:
The stylus movements are a bit more refined so it seems to read it easier than Phantom Hourglass, you don't find yourself stopping when you get too close to the edge of the screen. It's also a bit easier to roll, this can be a problem or can be an advantage for you.

Items: There are the usual items, the sword, the bow and arrow, boomerang, and bombs. Then new items are the Whip and Fan. The whip is very easy to use, the fan can be a pain at first since you have to blow into the microphone but it becomes second nature after awhile. Your new main item is the Spirit Flute, it's great for them to add in the DS Microphone but if your DS is old, it can be an issue picking up when your blowing into it or not, but other than that the new items are a great addition to the series.

Graphics:
Not much to say, they are the same as Phantom Hourglass, maybe a tad better.

Gameplay:
Now this is where this game shines over Phantom Hourglass, The train can be a bit tedious after awhile, but there are a very shortcuts to help along. A new feature is the control of a second character, this only comes into play in the Tower of Spirits, Zelda is able to take control a Phantom when you have 3 Tears of Light. This makes some puzzles very interesting and can be very entertaining when you see a large suit of armor cowering over a little mouse. Other than that Zelda takes the role of a helping character, such as Navi or Ceila.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our heroic Hyrulean is at it again December 15, 2009
Format:Video Game
There may be some vague spoilers below, but nothing too revealing. I'll cover the new gimmicks first:

Link, the engineer - "Geez, the Zelda idea well is sure running dry, huh?" was my first thought upon seeing the trailers a few months before the release date. Turns out that I enjoy the train elements more than I expected. The designers give you plenty of stuff to do while traveling, and you encounter a growing cast of enemies as the game progresses. And when there's nothing else to do, it's always fun to try your stylus-equipped hand at creating slow and dramatic cinematic camera sweeps of our favorite green-clad hero on his way to save Hyrule. Towards the end of the game, the use of the train figures in more significantly, even including a sort of Pac-Man-on-steroids bit of gameplay. While being able to travel only where the titular Spirit Tracks lay on the overworld map makes traveling a bit more efficient, it does kind of take away from the free roaming exploration aspect of the series. While I imagine some people will hate the train, I think it's a nice change of pace (though I'm already itching to get Link's two feet back on the ground).

Zelda, the Phantom puppeteer - Again, this idea turned out to be better executed than I expected. While controlling Zelda is a little cumbersome at first, it ends up adding a nice gameplay element. Though nothing revolutionary, the Link-Zelda partnership allows the designers to add some creative puzzles and action sequences. There are a variety of different Phantoms this time around so that helps keep things fresh. The use of Zelda is generally confined to the Tower of Spirits, so you won't be dealing with this during the normal temples. All in all, I highly approve of how they worked this into the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Phantom Hourglass December 14, 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, let me say that I am playing on a Triforce DS Lite I got in the holiday bundle 2007, and let me tell you that it is epic to play Zelda on a Triforce DS. That being said, Spirit Tracks fixes one of the major problems I had with the first one, which is the tower you must visit after each temple. The first featured a timed game, stealth, and recurrence all in one. I simply cannot stand timed games, it makes me feel hurried. The only way I was able to tolerate Majora's Mask and the 3 day limit was that I could either slow down time, or reset it after I was done with a temple. The Spirit Tower in Spirit Tracks is very challenging, yet it isn't timed. Not only that, but you don't have to visit floors already visited.

Another thing vastly improved from Phantom Hourglass is the transportation. Instead of a boring ship, there's now a train. It adds some skill since there are other trains on the track as well. Although, it is a bit weird that Link is an engineer, but I digress.

The music is simply fantastic. I loved the Ocarina in OOT and MM, and was disappointed that PH didn't have an instrument. Well my friends, the Spirit Flute functions just like the Ocarina! Even after you play, it goes to a cut-scene of Link playing with the harmony, just like MM! At first, I thought using the DS microphone would be insanely stupid and gimmicky. But after using it, I am singing a different tune (pun not intended.) The on-board mic is incredibly accurate, and it doesn't look as weird in public as I thought it would.

You will not be disappointed with this game. I mean come on, it's a Zelda game, which means instant purchase for us Zelda nerds. It's no OOT, but then again, what game is? Maybe if Nintendo put more effort into awesome games instead of the shovelware of lately, then we would see another OOT; Wii Zelda not withstanding, but I digress again.
