Review of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks


Tyler Ingram, Reporter

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is a highly underrated Zelda title in the franchise. It has a great story with memorable characters and with fantastic visuals for a D.S. game. The characters can get serious and goofy at times, which is a great tone from time to time.

The graphics are very well done for D.S. game, and I personally think this game was ahead of its time. The entire story keeps players well invested and makes us feel and care for the trials Link and Zelda go through. The game has you solve some unique puzzles in order to advance in the game. 

When I was little, me and my sister would play this on her D.S. all the time back in the day. The game was so good that I used to stay up late playing the game like crazy until I fell asleep. I don’t play the game now but now rethinking it, it would be a good trip down memory lane for me and my sister. 

The game can be found in a store like Gamestop or Walmart. 

Today, the game should cost at around 10 to 15 dollars.

Some criticisms I have with the game are some of the gameplay mechanics featured in it. One of the mechanics being that you have to literally blow into the D.S. to get Link to play the flute.


This game is a great entry into the Zelda franchise, and I do think that every Zelda or non-Zelda fan should definitely give this great game a chance to see how even a D.S. game can be one of the best games out there.
