NINTENDO DS-Sudoku Gridmaster

Frederick A. Eckert, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall its a great game- I don't like the screen set-up, could be more like "Brain Age" the little numbers in the boxes are too small for my old eyes.

Sodoku crazy

  • 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.

More work than play

  • Summary: The game works like the puzzle, enter the numbers between 1 and 9 in all the squares in the grid while ensuring no one number appears in the same row or column twice. If you've played Sudoku in Brain Age, be warned that the two are different in how you use the controls. Sudoku Gridmaster for the Nintendo DS contains over 400 puzzles ranging from easy to difficult, so fans can get plenty of 9x9-squared goodness to keep them busy for a long time.

Great puzzles, poor UI

Eric Mclaughlin, Amazon

  • Summary: I agree fully with review by "Lego Kid-within" on the User Interface. Having to erase prior guesses is annoying. Even more frustrating is that the game does not allow more than one user to save their game at a time (even Brain Age allows four different user names). As such, if someone else wants to try it, they must either play my currently saved game or delete it to start a new game. It does have tons of puzzles though.

Weak user-interface disappoints

William Erskine "Lego Kid-within", Amazon
3 July 2006
  • Summary: Riding on the Sudoku wave of popularity, I was eagerly waiting for this product to hit the shelves. Sorry to say, but I think it's a wipe-out. The puzzles are fine, and I like the high-lighted elements when you tap and double-tap the cells, but I found the handwritten input to be too unreliable. Fortunately, you can use a tap number pad. I'm frustrated by only having 4 positions for 'hints', sometimes there are more.
