@BuBsay Well, historically, GameSpot has always received handheld Zelda games pretty well. Phantom Hourglass got a 9, even if Spirit Tracks didn't.

@desert_thief It's the fifth iteration in a series. Be content that this got an 8.0. That's a pretty big feat, honestly -- it means they haven't lost their touch with these games, but it doesn't necessarily mean this is going to be the next GOTY.

At last, a review that acknowledges the strong writing. (Which, to my dismay, is such a rarity in video games.)

Another 3DS game stuck with an 8.0. #JusticeForPokemon

(In all seriousness, though, I won't complain that the system has yet another "Great" game added to its library -- the 3DS continues to prove why Nintendo will probably never lose its foothold in the handheld space.)

Kind of disappointing, after seeing how creative Epic Yarn and Canvas Curse were. This just looks stale by comparison.

Seems harsh. I would think the off-screen play would negate any bad touch controls in the limited segments. But alas, the Wii U can't seem to win out with much of anything.

@shingui5 Tales of Symphonia, I'd say, reached "greatness" status.

Great lineup overall, but a terrible lineup of exclusives. (And really, isn't that what made Wii U's lineup so weak?)

Konami: The reason this Castlevania game didn't sell well is not because it was on the 3DS; it didn't sell well because it's laughably bad compared to your previous portable Castlevania games. Put more effort into making your games fun, and they'll -- surprise, surprise -- sell better!

I'm surprised none of the reviews are bringing up the fact that this game is more expensive than most 3DS games. Why the $49.99 price tag? That alone makes me not want to buy it.
