Summary: The game of Sudoku is hard for someone starting out and this version is difficult to figure out at first. After a while you get the hang of it. However it does cause problem when you have a number in the wrong spot.
Summary: Sudoku in a video game should be straight forward, easy to grasp controls, and a font that's pleasant to look at at. Sudoku Gridmaster has all of this. Plus you can test to see where you rank (ie bronze, silver, gold, platinum) after completing a certain number of puzzles in Normal or Hard mode. This version is MUCH better than Platinum Sudoku in my opinion, even though there are only 400 puzzles here. The puzzles are similar to the Nikoli versions Original Sudoku .
Summary: I would have to say that given all of the sudoku games being produced, this one is second easiest to play (other than Brain Age). But then again, you don't have to go through the Brain Age interface to get to play sudoku. Would be better with random puzzle generation, as once you've beaten them all you can only better your times or reset the whole thing. I play it all the time - it will stay in my game library!
Summary: This is the most addictive Sudoku DS game that I own (and I have them all). I only wish they would come out with a second edition. Being able to highlight blocks and numbers really helps my playing. I have found that playing Sudoku Gridmaster has honed my overall playing skills. When I go back to Brain Age, I can solve puzzles more easily and efficiently as a result of playing Gridmaster. I can barely put it down.
Summary: I REALLY like this game. Sure, it isn't as good as Brain Age, but it is still really fun and the puzzles are GREAT!! I don't bother writing my answers. I just use the numbers. It's much easier. From what I've heard, it's better than the other Sudokus on the market and very convenient when waiting at the airport or doctor's office. You can't please everyone, but they did a pretty decent job. I actually love the version on my phone of all places.
Summary: I guess I was hoping that the Sudoku Gridmaster would compare to the Sudoku game that comes with the Brian Age game. Gridmaster is challenging but if you need reading glasses you had better put them on because you will need them to see the small numbers. One of the biggest disappointments with this game for me is to have made a mistake and not find it to the end and have to redo the entire game, frustrating.
Summary: I LOVE this game. It's fun and stimulating whether I have 15 minutes or an hour of free time. With a variety of levels of difficulty, it will be a long time before I need to buy another Sudoku game. Well worth the money!!
