1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment, 13 Aug 2007
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Settlers (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I had high hopes for this game as it returns to the original roots of the settlers franchise. It should have been the perfect combination of portability and touchscreen goodness on the DS and it is surprising just how much of a mess of things they made.

The game runs slow with often skipping animations, the screen is cramped and although you can zoom out this makes the game run slower and causes crashes. Saving and loading takes anything up to a minute and over (doesn't sound long but you just try it!), sounds effects seem distorted, the touchscreen sometimes responds to you but not always. The dual screen is well implemented allowing you to have various reports on the top screen while you continue to play on the bottom but thats about its only redeeming feature.

It an absolute mess, which is a shame because the original games were good fun to play.
