I'm a cross-platform gamer, but lately I've been playing mostly on my DS Lite. Phantom Hourglass is my first Legend of Zelda game, and I recommend anyone with a DS to try it! I found these Phantom Hourglass gashapon figures at Toys 'R' Us in Vivocity.
It's hard to explain exactly why this game is so much fun to play. I love how natural it is to use the stylus pen to do everything, from running around and swinging your sword at enemies, directing the paths of your arrows, boomerang, exploding rodents, etc, to solving puzzles using the clues you scribble on your maps.
Speaking of DS games, I notice a majority of people playing handhelds on the MRT (our train system in Singapore) are PSP owners. Where is the love for the DS, I ask you?? I saw the reverse in Japan, where guys weren't afraid to be seen playing their DS in public. It's a shame some people back home assume DS games are only for kids or girls.
I'm not knocking PSP owners though, just those who haven't tried any DS games yet decided it's an inferior gaming platform. If you're a gadget person, I understand the appeal of the PSP offering multiple functions (you can watch movies and listen to music on the DS if you want to, by downloading the appropriate homebrew software), but if you're a gamer, casual or hardcore, I suggest giving the DS a shot before you deliver your verdict. :)
