Excerpt: Sonny with a Chance on the Nintendo DS is a breath of fresh air. This hand held video game is a lot like Mario Party DS. Four players compete in a board game trying to get the most fan mail. There are certain squares that are mini games and all four players can try and win the most letters. I was not expecting this kind of a video game for this franchise. It is a party game after all.
Mini-games with cast of TV show are fun, but disjointed.

Whether it be Zack and Cody, Hannah Montana, Cory in the House, Wizards of Waverly Place, or Sonny with Chance; Disney always seems to be able to zero-in on what kids like to watch on the tube nowadays.
