The worst Zelda game ever.

This game is just boring. Repeating the same dungeon all over again is dull, and the exploration on the ship is boring.

Too much violence

Solid addition to the series

Solid game, however the Temple of the Ocean King which you revisit a lot can be a little annoying for younger kids. Fantasy violence but Link sets an amazing role model. I recommend!

By far the worst legend of zelda game ever.

You just explore the same dungeon over and over, with an hourglass that increases the amount of time you can be in there without dying as you make progress. Disgrace to the series. Don't bother buying it. 0 stars if it was possible. Don't waste your money on this "game".

This is bad just do to the disappointment

This is easily one of the worst zelda titles it took all the good from the windwaker and turned it into a mess sailing is piss poor it is so slow and boring the dungeons are a joke and the fact is the music is irritating. Sorry for my rant there we'll this game is still better than call of duty

May be too dark for younger kids.

not the best

it's ok, definetly NOT the best zelda game. don't expect it to be anything like wind waker. fun if you haven't played any zelda games before, but not very good if you're a big zelda fan. First, there's this place called the "temple of the ocean king" which you have to keep going to over and over again. You have a certain amount of time to finish it, and things called "phantoms" are always walking back and forth, and if you get seen by one, they will chase you and try to take some of your time away. The only way to stop the time or get away from a phantom is going into things called "safe zones". Still, that temple was hard and i had to use a walkthrough, and if your time runs out completely, there's no getting it back so you probably have to turn off your DS and start the whole floor/temple over. Don't get me wrong, though, it was still pretty fun. The violence is really cartoonish and unrealistic and there's no sex or language, so don't worry :)
