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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Conclusion: Very disappointed with this game. I love crosswords & i am quite good at them, but this was awful. The clues were very obscure, i reckon the creators are american, just going by the clues & answers. Big waste of money!
Conclusion: I bought this game on a whim as I quite like crosswords. It is not the best game for the Nintendo DS, but it does what it says - it gives you lots of crosswords to complete. I think it is an ok game and helps to fill in the time when you have to wait around or on long journeys. Overall, not bad.
