Phantom Hourglass thread

Even if your handwriting sucks on so many different levels like yours truly's.
And most of the new puzzles are awesome, like the shutting-the-DS one Hanz mentioned. And Haku... Potential spoilers here, but I haven't had that much trouble with the Ocean King temple overall. The Phantoms, however... Are a b****. A very large one, too. Out of reflex, I charged one down and tried to kill it because I wasn't really paying attention to the stupid red fairy, what's-his-face, Leaf. You can probably guess that that didn't go well in the slightest... And the Phantom Eyes that first appear on the fourth floor... EUGH. I've almost gotten offed on the fifth floor three times because I stupidly neglected to look at the map, so I didn't see 'em and they summoned Phantoms. I was lucky I was near a safe zone each of those three times. I wasn't so lucky the first time I encountered the stupid aqua eyes... I didn't look at the map while an Eye was near and there was no safe zone in sight, and it was because the damn thing loosed a backup Phantom right near me that I got nailed and decided, screw this, I'll start over so I can get my time back.
I'm with Hanz, the sailing is massively better than TWW's. So is the non-sword weapon control... The boomerang is so much more controllable than it ever has been. Bombs are easier to aim, too. You can rebury holes you've already dug with the Shovel if needed. The ability to write on maps is really nice, too...
A warning: There's fairies and one of them uses Navi's "hey" from OoT. I had an "AW CRAP!" moment when I first heard that, but it doesn't occur that often.

What I've seen is good and the reviews are all 9+...so...this is on the top of my list now.

He got to play it on a friend's DS though. It's pretty good. From what I've seen so far, it looks and plays very much like Animal Crossing: Wild World. Which is an excellent game.
It was funny at the end of the starting movie, where Link gets woken up by the fairy. The second that 'HEY' burst out of the DS's speakers, I started laughing. [name removed] starts jumping up and down, grunting and cursing at the DS. It was hilarious to watch.

And the writing on maps is also great. I take extensive notes... which equate to random doodles. Linebeck will never know what those marks will ever mean, muhahahahaha! Tis the job of the navigator to keep his directions secret from the rest of the crew!

I'm in love with Linebeck....he is so awesome.
The only thing I dislike thus far is the diffculty...it took me roughly 10 minutes to finish the first temple, boss and all.

The game is painfully easy though...

Linebeck officially won me over on the Ghost Ship. Potentially best scene so far.

My favorite boss is easily Eox...that was neat.

I agree that it was kinda easy though...the biggest complaint I have with it overall is that the dungeons feel alot more...Room-to-room if you catch my drift. It feels alot more obvious that a switch to open the door is in the same room/floor instead of the entire dungeon.
Also, having to restart my game because I refused to give the hero my invisible clothes was pretty dumb. But I guess that's my own fault.
Pretty awesome game though...and my first (!) handheld Zelda.
