Once a classic, always a classic,
This review is from: 42 All Time Classics (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This game is what portable gaming is all about and mirrors the exact reason why I chose a DS over the PSP. Simple, intuitive games of which there are loads to chose from. Some are quick such as Solitare which you can play during ad breaks while watching TV. and some like Chess or Poker are a bit longer, perhpas to play on the train or during half-time of a sports match.
The game is presented very well and the instructions are very in-depth to get you knowing what to do. The high scores and unlockables provide you with rewards, but even without those this would be the perfect game to play during free time.
The best thing is online play where you get to challenege the best in the world to nearly every game on the varied cartridge. The online matches are fun and seamless but lack a Pictochat-like talk feature which would have completed the enjoyment.
I bought this game spur-of-the-moment and has become my favourite DS game, just down to the simplicity & enjoyment it provides. I don't want to be messing around with in-depth adventure games on a handheld, that's what I use my home consoles for. This is the type of game I got my DS for.
