SlashGear Review – The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

I've been in need of a new game to carry around with my DS, and I think I may have found the perfect one to fill those voids of time where I'm away from home and bored out of my brain. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass hit stores this past week, so being a fan of the series, I grabbed a copy.

It’s not an official product SKU, just something some guy in Australia whipped up, but it looks surprisingly good and it works. It has a metal Zelda badge thing on the front, it’s a shield with some symbols including the Tri Force, and there are some swords and arrows that cross behind the shield.

Behind the shield there are a pair of bright green LEDs that have different operating modes, when the DS is on, the lights are on, when it’s in standby or off, the lights are off, and when you switch on the WiFi the lights start blinking. The paint job on the device looks amazing too, the bottom of the DS, the biggest portion of the hinge, and buttons and accents on the inside are all light blue.

I recently flew from Indianapolis to Detroit. I'm not sure how familiar you are with the Midwest, but those two cities aren't exactly that far apart. I believe our total time in the air was around 40 minutes. GM picked up the tab, so I wasn't too worried. The most annoying thing about that trip was the fact that there were literally only about 10 minutes that I was allowed to play my DS, as you can't operate electronic devices of any kind during takeoff or landing. Wouldn't it suck if you couldn't play your DS at all on a plane?

I'm not one that will upgrade my gaming consoles just because it's available in a new color, or is a super-cool special edition. However, the new crimson and onyx DS Lite has caught my eye.
