Summary: This is a great game to unwind to, No thinking required. The whole thing about Brain training is, well a load of BS. I purchased this for my non-gamer wife, and she loves it. Other games she likes are Brain Age, Picross, and WarioWare: Touched. This is a pure, fast paced, shooter. It has 4 levels of difficulty from Practice to Insane, and would be great for fun lovers of any age. Easy to pick up, hard to put down.
Summary: This game is not really known in America well. But it is one of the best games for the DS and has been on other platforms like the PS2. THis ds game has so many minigame modes and challenges, it is fun and addictive. YOu can try to beat a level, better your high scores, beat someone elses high scores or play multiplayer. A must have for your DS collection.
Summary: Namco's light gun shooter Point Blank first gained notoriety on these shores when released on the PS1 way back in the day, and the novelty idea of shooting based mini-games seems like a great platform to make a great DS game. And it does, for a while anyway. Point Blank DS picks 40 mini-games from the series; all of which are emulated wonderfully. The most surprising aspect of Point Blank DS is how the light gun controls are translated using the touch screen and stylus.
Summary: This game doesn't belong on the DS. It belongs in arcades, that is where it is played the best. The stylus does is not fun to use. I seriously prefer the gun in the arcade, because it is more classic to play and more fun. It is way too easy to shoot something on the DS with the stylus. If your a gamer thats into really easy games with no replay value whatsoever, I recommend this game to you.
Summary: You always need to have a few games around that don't require you to play for hours at a time. This is one of those games. It's fast and fun, and you can play for as little as a couple of minutes and still get enjoyment out of it. Anyone can pick it up, too, so it's also great for people that aren't into DS or even into videogames in general. I'd recommend it to anyone!
Summary: Man I really would like some more games like this. I hope they put out a sequel. The only thing is that there isn't any game per say. Just keep on playing 4 random games out of 40 at different difficulty levels. They should also put in a vs mode where you hand over the ds after a level. That would be fun for parties. You can get done everything there is to do quickly. But it is still really fun to try and beat your score.
Summary: I was waiting for an english version of ganbare trainer for quite a few months and I'm very happy with this : it's an old school point blank game for the nintendo DS with a brain training system.
while pointless, Point Blank DS is not without fun
21 June 2006
Summary: Namco strikes again, with another amusing, rather gimmicky title for the DS. By "gimmicky," I'm not implying that it's a bad thing -- the gimmick in Point Blank DS is that it's a light gun game without, oh, you know, a light gun -- just that the idea itself, while interesting and quite fun, is not one to stand the test of longevity. If you liked Warioware: Touched!, you might like this.
Excerpt: "Point Blank for the Nintendo DS is centred around the original arcade game without a light gun, which begs the question "How can you have a first person shooting game without a light gun?" For those of you who have played Brothers in Arms on the Nintendo DS this is solved by having a sight on screen that can be moved around via the D pad. Why this has not been incorporated in to Point Blank on the DS I'll never know. You can't "shoot" a target ...
Pros: Very simple and ideal for young gamers
Cons: Poor sound, gets very repetitive, not suitable for seasoned gamers
