Crosswords DS

Arlene, Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: I got this primarily for my Mother who loves crosswords but does not like some of the complicated instructions to some of the computer games etc. I have played this one for a little while and it is very easy to navigate so I know she will like it and not need me looking over her shoulder every time she wants to use it.

Can Crosswords for the Nintendo DS replace puzzle magazines?

julwhite, Ciao
22 July 2009
  • Excerpt: This review is for the Nintendo DS game, Crosswords, developed by Nuevo Retro Games and published by Deep Silver. Crosswords is an educational and entertainment word based game. There is a different, and much better, version available in the United States, and this review relates to the UK edition. Essentially this game is a crossword game, with 2,700 crosswords to complete across five different subjects.
  • Pros: Good concept
  • Cons: Very poor execution, misleading product description, worst product I've reviewed !

Fun for all ages

Darren M. Anthony, Amazon

  • Summary: My wife and I really enjoy this game. She plays the anagrams for about an hour each day. She absolutely loves them and finds them so much fun. I prefer the crossword and word search puzzles. I think they handle just as well as doing them on paper. My favourite concept about these games is that paper is no longer needed, thus being environmentally friendly. As much fun as I find CrossworDS, If you prefer advanced and harder puzzles, you will probably find this too easy.

A Lesson Learned.

Giddigirl, Play.com

  • Conclusion: This game has taught me to read others reviews before purchasing a game. Admittedly I bought my copy elsewhere, carried away on a 2 for 1 deal, played it once and hated it, never to be touched again. In 2 puzzles I was asked "Asian Country" 3 times, each with a different answer. It was blatently either created in another country and translated badly, or created for the worldwide market with no thought for the actual users.

excellent new way to enjoy crosswords

C. Cooke "whodunit reader", Amazon

  • Summary: I really enjoyed this format for crosswords, especially when travelling or passing time. The crosswords start out much too easy for adults but would be good for some children. The "find a word" puzzles were fun but again the easy ones would be for the kids. I would like to have seen more challenging ones. I didn't try the anagrams much but found that it didn't recognize Canadian spellings.

User Review

Shantelle88, Ciao
8 June 2008
  • Excerpt: I was looking forward to this NDS game as I do crosswords all the time and I thought It'd save me carrying around big bulky newspapers, but it wasn't worth it. The easy crosswords are small child level, while the meduim and hard levels are for a Cambridge graduate. The clues/answers were EXTREMELY repetative, once you'd done two or three crosswords you could complete them all. As an added negative point, you can't save the crossword and go back to it later.

DS Games Crosswords

fmwphse, Play.com
24 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Desperately disappointing. I love crosswords so awaited this with excitement; only to find something clunky and basic in its navigation, plus boring, repetitive clues. It is also very American- based and not for the European market. This is just not even comparable with most brain teasing games.

Rubbish

JosephsMummy, Play.com

  • Conclusion: Very disappointing. Clues are very obscure and not what I consider "general knowledge". I found it hard to complete any puzzles, and I'm quite good at crosswords!
