Summary: I don't play DS, so I'll rate this based on how important it seems to my kids. They played it for a few hours the day we got it, then again over the weekend. The never complained about it and it did seem like a pretty neat game since you can build bey blades in the game, but i think that you can't play with the bey blades that you make. My kids haven't played with this game since the first weekend we bought it.
Summary: This was a gift from the Easter Bunny to my 10 yr old, and yes he still believes, and darned if the Easter Bunny was loved more than mom and dad this year! He loves this game and I'm don't think he quit playing it since he got it! It's arrival date was to be a day or two after Easter but Amazon got it here 3 days BEFORE Easter! Thanks guys for helping a mom keep her son believing if only for 1 more year!!
Summary: My 7 year old is a bey blade and bey wheelz fanatic. He loves and owns a ton of bey blades and wheelz and watches the show when he can. So, naturally, I thought this would be a great gift for his birthday. When he first began to play the game, he had difficulty figuring it out. He's not one to read directions (of course), but he asked me to read them and help him figure it out - which doesn't happpen.
Summary: my grandson wanted this exclusively for the included blade. He doesn't play the game much since he says it is rather difficult. he was frustrated in the fact you can create a beyblade; however, you can't use your created blade for the actual game combat. all in all, i would recommend this if just for the included beyblade.
