Spirit Tracks high playthrough comments, part 2

This game actually makes you literally TALK to the game characters using the DS's microphone... how embarrassing...
That moblin pirate battle was some epic stuff... I wasn't expecting that at all.
Locomo... I wonder if they're related to the old Hyrule somehow...

Wait, so the land of Spirit Tracks is divided into 4 regions.. Forest, Snow, Ocean, and Canyon... that sounds very similar to the 4 regions of Termina.

oh wow... in the Ocean section the train tracks actually go beneath the ocean... there are underwater octoroks shooting at you and stuff... this is amazing...
running backwards away from a demon train to get to the temple...
woah, the Ocean Temple looks like a giant crystal switch... like the ones from LttP... that's really neat.
The inside of this Ocean temple looks a lot like OoT's Water Temple.

Back to the Spirit Tower... the next floor ramps up in difficulty a bit... this actually feels comparable to the early game of LttP or LA.

I love the puzzles in this dungeon... using Phantom Zelda to lure the other phantoms away from Link with her cuteness... and at some parts, instead of Link hiding behind Zelda, Zelda's the one who has to sneak through behind Link...

The Spirit Tower might be one of my favorite Zelda dungeons of all time...

Malladus... the ancient demon king invading the spirit realm at the top of this tower... I guess the spirit realm is kinda like this new Hyrule's sacred realm in a way...

That battle against Byrne was intense, reminded me of the WW fight against Ganon. Byrne was once the servants of the spirits, but now he serves the demon king...

This story is really interesting... it's like... Zelda's sacred power purifies the Spirit Realm, the world above... and the demons are from the world below... the demon king Malladus escaped his imprisonment under the train tracks and has invaded the Spirit Realm... I had some theory about how this all might connect to Ganon or old Hyrule, but it was way dumb.
