Ah Phantom Hourglass, my favorite handheld Zelda next to Four Swords. I just finished Spirit Tracks 100% but i really preferred this game overall. Think i liked the music in Spirit Tracks better though.

Anyway, after looking at these sales again I'm really doubting Spirit Tracks will reach and pass this game.

This... is definitely my least favorite Zelda. I'm not even going to bother finishing it, feels like a drag.

Still, it seems like a few who shared the same sentiment likes Spirit Tracks, so... moving on!

This is the only game of the Zelda franchise that sucked (Granted,I've never played Zelda 2 or the C-I Zelda). I hate the fact that you always have to revist the temple, do the exact same thing over and over. It's a shame cos it's a real buzzkill. Apart from that, the gameplay was good, so I hope Spirit Tracks is better.

I can't believe I missed out on this amazing game for so long.. Just recently bought a DS and beat this game.. I'm the kinda person who prefers console games over handhelds, and prefers the non-cell-shaded graphics.. But this game is one of the best games I've played in my life. Definitely tied with my favorite Zelda games.

Underrated. I much prefer the Touch controls to button pushing. I hope Spirit Tracks keeps the same formula. Though for the sake of those whiny people, they should allow the option for button+D-Pad controls.

SJGohan3972 @ Actually when you redo the main dungeon every time, you can go to previously unreachable places, or find new items, or find new shortcutes with the newly acquired tools. I only found this out when I replayed the game for the 2nd time.

Yay, I finally got this game! Now I just need to start it. :P

@NintendoTogepi: From what I've read this game doesn't have anything similar to the entirely unnecessary and quite boring quest for the Triforce shards in tWW. While I haven't played PH yet, that fact alone leads me to believe that it will be the better game, thus warranting better sales, imo.

I could be wrong, though. :P"

You are wrong :P. The triforce quest was quite minor, and IMO the ocean king dungeon is a billion times more tedious, annoying and unnecessary than it. Plus PH is just horrible in every other way.

This game was the bomb dead ass real shit. Seriously though, good continuation of the Zelda series especially for DS. Controls were good, graphics were decent and the dungeons, the centerpiece of any Zelda game, were pretty damned good. (ok, the repetition through the "super dungeon" was pretty damned boring)/

Firstable, Phantom Hourglass is what we call a real new game, not only for the stylist controllin' no it's only 64 mega-bytes compared with 4 Giga-bytes and lot of horribles games on the PS2, with more than 10 GBytes HD DVD still horrible games on the Xbox 360 and with 50 GBytes of the blu-ray where there are still bad games in !!! I think for less than 100 MBytes making such a fantastic game like Phantom Hourglass probably the Best Game on portable console for 2007!! well I let you guess...
