Great Fun on the DS
on 29 September 2009
Having been a fan of the board game as well as the PC version, I decided to give the DS conversion a try. I'm very glad I did as they have managed to cram the original game onto the dual screen perfectly.
The main difference between this and the PC version is the lack of the real time "blitz" mode. Personally, this is no loss as the real time game lacks a lot of the stratagy that made the original boardgame so good. You create your team from the same selection of races and have a choice beteween Championship, Cup or Grand Slam compitions. Also available is a "hot seat" mode for 2 player, single cart play, as well as the wireless 2 player, 2 DS (and 2 cart) mode.
The game can be saved at the end of each of your turns making it ideal for a portable platform. All in all this is one of the best new games for the DS.
