Summary: Length:: 4:38 Mins I used to play this in the arcade in the early 90's all the time. The story line may be different, I really don't remember, but it's irrelevant to the gameplay anyway.Some levels appear different, and some I definately remember as being the same as the arcade version.
Summary: Arkanoid has pretty much always been good for a blast, and this new age Arkanoid for the DS is no different. Featuring a bevy of visual upgrades, new power-up's, multiplayer options, Quest and Clear modes, and unlockables; this Arkanoid warrants a try at the very least. Using the stylus as a paddle works surprisingly well (trying to use the D-pad surprisingly does not), and the game remains as simply addictive as ever.

Summary: I kept waiting for someone to go first but looks like I'll be first... First of all, Arkanoid plays just fine with a stylus. I'm sure it's better with a paddle like the original but since the game didn't come with one, the stylus works good. I enjoyed playing it with the stylus. There is an option of easy, normal, or hard. I chose normal hoping it's like the original.
Summary: If you like the Gamesworkshop game Bloodbowl or know the computer game, then this is for you. This is the same as the first version of the computer game that came out and not the darkelf version, so you don't get all the teams plus the added bonus. But it's still a great little computer game, that they've made well using the two small screens as you can zoom in to get a better look at play.

Summary: This is, essentially, the Blood Bowl board game in your palm. Everything you'd expect to be there is present - a good selection of teams, competitions, skills. The graphics are better than I had expected with the option of an overall view of the pitch or zooming in for a close up of the action. The gameplay itself is very simplistic and intuitive - easy to pick up and very hard to put down.
Summary: I've had this game a couple of days now and i have to admit I'm hooked. It's one of those games thats so easy to pick up but really difficult to master, and as I mentioned in the title of the review, if you're not a massive warhammer fan you may struggle to start off with. One word of warning, DO NOT take any notice of the video trailer amazon have put up, as this is not representative of the DS version of the game.
Summary: If you haven't heard of blood bowl the board game, the ds game still has a lot to offer but you would be better off with the pc game. The ds version does not have the video sequences or audio commentaries that set off the pc game, and is missing the variety of team colours and logos that appear even on the psp.
