I finally beat this game recently and it is lame. The temple of the of the Ocean King is one of the worst temples ever and you have to go through it SIX TIMES, and the sailing is just a interactive loading screen. Other than that the map is cool and the other dungeons are cool. These problems are too much though. And the ending is sooooo bad.

Probably one of the weaker Zelda games - I've always felt Zelda games spent too much time in dungeons so the idea of one huge dungeon central to the game with time limits really doesn't appeal to me. Being able to draw on the map is a nice touch but I've never really felt much of a drive to finish this game, I've tried playing it multiple times and have never beaten it.

the thing is, i'm not a fan of the ds games in the series. they are clunky, have control issues, and they feel like they couldn't hold together the zelda cinematic style and nintendo didn't know what to do to make it visually work. this is the better of the 2 in my opinion, but its not saying all too much. the game is pretty big, but its still a bit clunky and awkward. the story is also a bit inconsistent with windwaker, but overall isn't awful. its a decent zelda game.

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"During the early 80s, this was the game to play. I'm a big fan of the game, but it is rather repetitive. I actually had this version of the game, so I was a bit disappointed that the improvements were very slight. However, this is a fun game to play!" - dschult3

"Great game get it while its free on xbl!" - harris77

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"The game looks awesome. Too bad the label is destroyed!" - leoabreu

 Sega Saturn Racing Wheel - Sega Saturn
"What I love about this wheel that I think most people haven't pointed out is that you can put the wheel in between your legs while sitting on the couch. You then cause use the stand to hold with your legs so you get maximum confort while playing and no hunching over to the table. Most racing games work better with this wheel. Make sure to look up what games work well with it first before you purchase any games for it." - Truxton4life

 River Raid - Atari 5200
"For the first time in forever, the 5200 version of a game is better than it's 2600 counterpart" - bendrowned33
