Summary: Love first person shooters, but the ds wants you to use the stylus in conjunction with the buttons which makes it hard to move and aim and shoot at the same time. (Same setup as Metroid Hunters) If your like me and have trouble with the controls, go for Lego Bionicle instead. It lets you chose the control setup.
Summary: Moon feels similar to the original doom. The game is the first I've played on the ds. I am somewhat disappointed, the levels all feel very similar and the backgrounds and don't help. I feel like the graphics are below what you should be able to get from the ds. The controls in moon are innovative however uncomfortable. In order to turn left and right and to look up and down as well as aim you use the stylus on the touch screen.
Much Better then "Touch The Dead" & "Demetium: The Ward"

Summary: After playing a couple of first person shooters lately on the DS, it sparked my interest to find one that was actually decent. I'd played "Touch The Dead" & "Demntium: The Ward" and they where decent enough, but too repetitive and got boring very quickly. This game is a bit of a step up over both of those games, but not quite as much fun as older games like Doom & Duke Nukem which would be nice to see a DS version of soon.
Summary: I enjoyed playing Moon, its probably one of the better FPSs I've had on the DS since Metroid Prime Hunters. I played Dementium, and I feel Moon improves a lot on the shortcomings of that game. The weapons are unique and fun to use, there's enough, but not too much, ammo, the bosses require a little thinking as well as shooting, and the story is creepy and so matter-of-factly presented it leaves a little chill down your spine. That being said, it can be improved on.
Summary: Moon is not a bad game, but it is a disappointment. The graphics are average, the enemies are repetitive, sound is irritating, and the plot is trite. Even worse a year and a half ago the makers of this game, Renegade Kid, made Dementium: The Ward a game that had a very detailed environment, quality sound, and a decent plot. This game is on an improved game engine and looks and sounds much worse. In the game you are a futuristic soldier on the moon.
Summary: I will make this short but sweet. This game has great graphics and control for DS standards. Very fun and easy to play, but the background music is very repetitive. The music actually reminds me of the music playing in the movie "Grandma's Boy" in the scene where the weird game designer is working on his game and listening to bad industrial music.
The one in the sky - not a rear-end flashing simulator

Summary: Moon aims itself as an atmospheric First Person Shooter that takes some inspiration from the Metroid series tasking you with a solo experience of uncovering the mystery of some recently discovered ruins on the Moon. It's certainly an ambitious title and makes good use of the DS' 3D graphical capabilities. The most impressive moments come from the moments of exploring the Moon's surface.
