Not as bad as people say

  • Summary: This game should be worth about 4$. Basically if your a solo gamer, the only thing you can do is play 3 mini games to get coins that you use to buy accessories for your avatar and/or some music and backgrounds. I don't really know why but I enjoy playing this game.

  • Summary: Ping pals, though cheap, is not really worth more than a dollar, the game is interesting while you first look around and learn about stuff, but otherwise it's loses appeal rather quickly, I managed to stretch out play-time for maybe a half hour, but struggled to maintain intrest in it. the graphics aren't horrible, but they also leave much to be desired.

THE REAL DISH GameSpot Review of Ping Pals

Big Boss Games, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • Summary: GameSpot Review of Ping Pals For those of you who might not know, when you buy a Nintendo DS, PictoChat is included in the package. PictoChat is a form of chat software that takes advantage of the system's wireless network capabilities by letting you exchange text messages and drawn pictures with your friends. While it's not the most full featured of chat programs, it certainly does its job. So why, then, would anybody want to spend $30 on the same exact thing..

Don't waste your money!

  • Summary: I got this game for free. Don't pay money for it!!! Like other reviewers said, it's Pictochat with avatars. If it used WFC, it might be cool, but it's only DS-to-DS, so it's pointless. Update: Since the new 3DS doesn't have PictoChat, I found a use for this "game"! It replaces the PictoChat application. I still wouldn't pay money for it though...

Pictochat.. with shopping!

  • Summary: It's a chat game that lets you draw pictures. But... the DS already COMES with a game that lets you chat and draw pictures! Just use that! The one fun aspect of this game is that you get to dress up a character that represents you when you talk to your friends. But really, none of my friends have this game, so it's pretty much pointless and boring.

Ping Me Up, Scotty! There is no Intelligent Life here!

  • Summary: Reviewed for Big Boss Games by: KBN "Ping Pals Won't Earn DS Owners Many Friends" Although the Nintendo DS is at it's heart a revolutionary step forward in gaming tech, the major problem with it's feature rest in support. Release titles for the NDS were scanty, and though there were a few hard-hitters there were just as many that leave gamers scratching their heads and asking why.

Fun...at first.

  • Summary: When you first get the game, it seems really fun, and it is for the first three weeks. You're thrilled by the mini-games, and you go wild when you get your allowance, but when you really get your avatar how you want it to look, there's really no point unless you have several friends that have this game. If you do, great fun, but if you don't, you can't play two of the mini-games.

Even if it was free I wouldn't want a copy of Ping Pals........

  • Summary: Unless it would go toward a bonfire. Seriously, this game is the worst game I have every played in my life, and when I think of a bad game, this one comes to mind. EGM actually gave it two 0.0 and a 1.5. Sad. But then again, I don't think that this game dosen't even deserve a rating, other than "steaming pile of a fat 80 year old middle school dropout's [deleted by amazon]". Thus, this game dosen't even deseerve to exist.

Only fun with others who own it

  • Summary: I bought it and played it for a while, but the games get repedative. There are games you can send to another DS, but your friend will show up as a default generic character. Unless you know someone else with the game all the trading of outfits and items isn't even an option. It's really cheap most places, so if you buy it for yourself, buy a 2nd copy for a friend. I ended up selling it.
