    Anyone else hugely disappointed? First real shot at online Zelda and epic fail.

    Should have been 4 Swords. Not some lulz we should add in some crap multiplayer because we can, programed in 5 minutes minigame.

    Nintendo's pretty terrible at turning single player games into multiplayer. You should know that by now. As soon as I heard it was multiplayer I knew it would suck.

    Theres no battle mode !! Imagine a 4 on 4 battle mode. You fight with swords like in the real game. With that, you could do Capture The Flag, Juggernaut, Team Slayer...

    I'm hoping for a Four Swords DS sequel, I loved Epona racing.

    Pretty sure they wouldn't use Halo terminology.

    Battle mode with Phantom Hourglass doesn't sound like very much fun.

    A co-op based multiplayer game like Four Swords on the other hand would have been great.

    Hm the mini game itself is ok, but there really should be more different ones. [​IMG] Or one better one. [​IMG]

    The multiplayer is pretty fun, but it's also rather lacking, If there had even been something similar to 4 Swords, The game would easily become my top favourite DS game.
