At first it was pretty boring BUT after you get farther into the game it's really fun. It's definitely worth the money. It takes a while to beat it and you have to have patience.
overall it's one of the best games that i ever played.
All Zelda games have some sort of unique feature about them. This game is controlled completely via the touchscreen which may sound odd at first but it works so perfectly and intuitively. It's somewhat like Wind Waker in that you have a boat and travel between different islands but the story is completely new and original. The game is pretty lengthy too around 15 hours if you do the various side quests and things.
Featuring intuitive touch-screen controls and innovative puzzles, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass offers new challenges for fans of the series and an easy-to-grasp introduction for gamers new to The Legend of Zelda. But time grows short, and only the Phantom Hourglass can buy Link the minutes he'll need to survive.
