The gaming publication states that Link’s latest adventure is an “absolute joy to play from start to finish” and that the game is “completely rammed to the gills with side-quests, secret areas and collectables”. To top it off they gave Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks an impressive 91 percent.
Spirit Tracks will feature a magical locomotive, which hero Link uses to travel around an equally magical island. Railway-based gameplay will consist of blowing up powder kegs on the tracks and shooing wild animals away with a horn blast. The game will also have numerous puzzles and dungeons.
Amazon.co.uk have just published a launch date of December 4th 2009 for Nintendo’s long awaited Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Whilst this could purely be a tentative place-holder, it’s more than plausible that we will be seeing the emergence of the action based role playing title around the Christmas period.
