Not for my eyes

Summary: Just received the game today, and will put it back in the box and write off as a poor choice. Not only do you need a magnifying glass to play the game, but you really need one to read the little book that comes with it. I thought the mahjong game in Touchmaster was a little hard to decipher....this one is impossible for my 72 year old eyes. Yes, even with my reading glasses on.
Summary: It is very similar to the solitaire card games which abound for the DS except that it uses the faces of Mahjong tiles and if that's all you want then get it. However if your looking for the skill and challenge of the real thing, you won't find it here. One of the games also appears to be unsolvable but I can't tell if I'm playing it correctly because the instructions are so brief they are virtually useless. Very disappointing implementation.
Summary: I bought this game for my son for Xmas as he really liked playing the real game of Mah Jong for 4 people using actual tiles. We were both very disappointed that this is not like the game we understood as Mah Jong. If you like patience then this might suit you, but if you like puzzle games then do not buy it. The tile graphics are also very poor so the actual game play is frustrating.
Summary: This was a complete waste of money. It has got to be the worst graphics I've seen and obviously, once it was opened I was no longer able to return it. DO NOT BUY IT EVEN IF YOU ARE A PUZZLE NUT LIKE ME!!
Summary: I suggested this game as a present for my husband from his mum as we both have mah jong sets and thought this might be a good idea to play on the ds without all the clearing up of the tiles afterwards. In my opinion,. this is not mah jong as you would play it in real life. It is a glorified pairing game where you match your suits seasons and flowers into pairs and as you do so it adds a row of bricks to a building on the top screen.
Summary: I love Mahjongg, I love my DS. I am a mature use well over ? what I am saying this is not a kids review. This is the worse game I have purchased The graphics are utter rubbish. Dont waste your money folkes unless you can buy it for under £5.
