I just picked up The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for the DS. I've heard some pretty bad things about the game, but I had to try it for myself. At least my expectations are low, so I should get some entertainment out of it.
Well my expectations were low and it stills sucks. I know modern gaming tends to dumb down the games a bit to help newcomers pick them up, but this is the first time I've played a game where the developers clearly thought I was mentally retarded.
*Walk into a volcano dungeon with fire all over the floor"
Navi-Clone: "Link, don't touch the fire. It will hurt you."
Well no fucking shit. Fire hurts. I've got it. The whole game is full of crap like that. It isn't a terrible game, but I hate being talked down to. Why isn't there a "I'm not a moron" difficulty option?
