If: Very much Phantom Hourglass all over again, but PH is one of the better realizations of the Zelda series so it’s hard to feel too aggrieved.

CraigG : I’m just starting the second temple, which may be a bit early to be adding this to my best games of 2009, but I can tell I’m going to like it. That said: I hate the train and I am amazed they managed to find something worse that the boat (dear Nintendo; stop with the shitty vehicles and stick with Epona). Ultimately, the game seems like more of the same from Phantom Hourglass, so I’m pretty certain I’ll continue liking this as much as I did that.

Euler: My first Zelda since the SNES… maybe even the NES? Of the few 2009 releases I played, this one has maybe the highest production values and it’s certainly fun. Still, I’d appreciate more depth.


Salsa Shark: Sometimes I think this is fun, other times I am annoyed beyond belief. I am especially angry right now after some very aggravating attempts to buy a shield that involved trying to get Beedle’s stupid air balloon to the ground, trying to board it while being shot at by pirates, having the balloon float away, subsequently dying and then repeating the process. I am SO tearing up my Beedle membership card.
