Really helpful.

Jessica Keyes, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is a great addition to a japanese course. I would not recommend it on it's own, as it can be difficult to learn without interacting with others who are also learning and/or already know the language.

  • Summary: My daughter is learning Japanese with this-- it's very methodical, and even takes advantage of the DS drawing screen to practice the characters.

Worth the money

  • Summary: I have learned more than your basics with this game. I can actually speak more and read more fluently using this game. Rosetta Stone and other software applications I have used in the past really wasn't worth the money spent and I didn't learn or catch on as quickly as I did with this game. Living in Okinawa, Japan I wanted to learn more Japanese and I must say this is an awesome game. Most definitely recommend this.

Great but...

  • Summary: This is pretty good for building vocabulary and kanji but although it describes grammatical rules and with in the grammar lessons the mini game's work to fortify what was taught, the mini games for grammar outside of the lesson are short and weak, so it doesn't really help unless you do it from the lessons themselves, but other than that its great for vocabulary and kanji, I would advise constructing you're own unique sentences outside of game play to fortify sentence...

  • Summary: We got this for my son last Christmas. He loved it. The only problem is that now when I ask him to do chores he says stuff to me in Japanese. I'm not sure if i am being acknowledged, or mocked??!!! Maybe I should start using it.

Learn bad Japanese

Learner, Amazon
4 July 2011
  • Summary: As an experienced learner of the language, clearly this was never made for me. After getting 100% in the placement test, I was taken straight to a lesson about how to use the copula ('''desu). These are the complete basics, and completely useless to anyone who already has experience with the language.

A terrible game for Japanese learners; deceptive and incorrect

Nathaniel Nat Guy, Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: Do you want to learn how to write several Japanese characters incorrectly? Do you enjoy trying to distinguish difficult grammar from actual typos? Perhaps you like the same 3 or 4 quick recall games in order to teach yourself a complex language? Well then, this is the game for you! However, if you want correct stroke orders, accurate (and natural) example sentences, and good learning exercises, definitely avoid this game.

  • Summary: I found this quite useful for starting off japanese but once you want to continue learning the language it is recommendable to find other sources. It is still recommendable as one of the best japanese learning games on the ds.

  • Summary: The interface is quite rough, clunky and sometimes not intuitive. The DS screen resolution is very low so they should of increased the text size as sometimes the kana is very small and it makes it very difficult to tell the difference between similar ones e.g. か (ka) and が (ga). Even with all its shortcomings it is still reasonably useful when used in conjunction with a real course.

Helpful for vocabulary, non-beginners may find writing frustrating

nowann, Amazon
13 July 2010
  • Summary: I studied Japanese at university level for three years but let my language skills go unpracticed for quite a while. I picked up this game hoping to refresh my memory and writing skills. One thing non-beginners should know, the max level you can start at is 11, which is still rather elementary, so if you have intermediate or advanced knowledge and are using this game as a refresher, you have to plow through many levels (can only advance one at a time after getting the...
