The only issue with it is the controls. While all other Zelda games utilize the buttons and d-pad to control Link, this one uses the stylus and touch pad. It takes some getting use to when controlling Link this way but it opens up some great and inventive puzzle solving and the fact you can now draw the path
Of your boomerang and make it fly around corners or fly around the room six times like a tornado of ass-whooping.
If you love Zelda and Windwaker ( this is a sequel to it) then you will enjoy this game. Just keep and open mind about the controls at first and soon they will be second nature.
About the game, I bought it because this was the game that introduced me to the whole series. I enjoyed it so much the first time I played it that I wanted to finally have a copy of my own. It was a HUGE bummer to find out nintendo shut down all wi-fi and online services for all games on both Wii and DS systems. Other than that, the game is one of my favourites up to date. Has a great story following the events of Wind Waker, and the local multiplayer still works, and it's still as fun as I remembered it.
A great sequel to the windwaker. Controls utilize the touch screen exceptionally well. The characters are rich with personality, and the plot is strong. The only thing holding it back is: The Temple of the Ocean king; in which you must travel back to repeatedly throughout your epic quest. The game forces you to solve the same puzzles over and over. You have to complete each level, as you delve deeper into The Temple. A cool concept, but executed somewhat annoyingly. To finish on a positive aspect, writing notes on my map with the touch screen is absolutely awesome. Drawing chickens for quest points is always a joy.
Finally after getting sick of hearing everyone rave about it, I decided to give it another chance and boy, am I glad I did, because I quickly fell in love with it. Once you get used to the stylus, it opens up methods of control that were never possible before. The stylus control for the boomerang and motorized bombs are revolutionary and could only work with the stylus.
All in all, it is everything I want in a Zelda game & I am glad I decided to give it another go. So much in fact that I just ordered the sequel Spirit Tracks.
With the hint book or using the internet to solve puzzles this game will still take the better part of 2 weeks to play from start to finish, and if you only play a few hours a day and figure everything out yourself, plan on about a month.
I can't wait for the next Zelda game to come out :)

Though it took awhile to get use to just using the stylus...kept trying to move Link with the control pad. Lol.
