Summary: If you really love the challenge of crosswords, don't buy this game. This is not for people who love crosswords. This game is great if you're a beginner, or if you like to mindlessly fill in easy crosswords that feature frequently re-appearing clues. But if you like some novelty and challenge, this is not the game for you. I played it once and never touched it again. For me, it was extremely boring and not fun at all.
Can the Nintendo DS and Crosswords replace puzzle magazine?

Summary: Well I got this game a while ago now and I think I've played it 3 or 4 times, I had to put it away before I started asking someone to get me a DUNCE hat! Maybe its just me missing it but NOWHERE on the case for this game does it say you have to a GENIUS to play! I honestly could not get through even one of the puzzles on the easy level!
Summary: A couple of months ago I went through a strange phase of being obsessed by crosswords. The other half started to get fed up with me having crossword magazines all over the flat, so he bought me this for the DS instead. I've played it twice, and now it's sat gathering dust. The game is simple enough, it's just a load of crosswords - great, I thought, I'd have hourse of entertainment - oh how wrong was I.
