This review is from: 42 All Time Classics (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Nintendo's plans to get the whole world playing on DS are continuing with the launch of a new title packed full of classic card and board games for the whole family.

This latest release does exactly what it says on the box, with 42 classic games. Now when I say "classic" I don't mean Pac-Man & Super mario, but classic card games (like poker and Texas Hold 'em), board games (such as chess and backgammon) and pub sports (from darts to snooker) onto one DS cartridge.

While you can play all of the games alone and track your progress as a player through extensive stats, the greater appeal lies in the multiplayer modes. Wireless networking caters for up to eight people in a room, as well as enabling you to hook up to Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connection to challenge people from around the country - or the world.

Indeed, being fairly slow by nature, most of these games don't suffer from lag or connection glitches, however far-flung your opponent.

You can even send each other messages while you play using Pictochat, opening the way for some sly digital bluffing!

This game reminds me of the Mario Party games on the gamecube, insofar as they are truly great in mulit-player mode, but a little dull when played alone. So if you plan on playing with your friends, it's indespensible; if you'll be going at it alone, there's a fair amount to do but you may lose patience with the scoring and lack of single-player variety.
