Not sure what the problem is...

Ray Slocumb "Green Day fan", Amazon
14 April 2010
  • Summary: I have read the reviews on this game(both of the listings) and a common theme seems to be that the control -- particularly the handwriting recognition -- is bad. I have solved several of the puzzles, and haven't experienced any problems. Other than mistaking V's as L's, a problem due to my sloppy handwriting, the control is great. The way you scroll through the clues is a bit on the odd side, but I quickly adapted to it.

Hard and challenging.

  • Summary: I am so not good at crossword puzzles so I found this game extremely difficult for me. But I let a friend use it and they whizzed right through it. So it is a great game just was not on my level.

USA Today Crosswords

Bennet Pomerantz "Bennet Pomerantz, AUDIOWORLD", Amazon
19 October 2008
  • Summary: Maybe I am spoiled, I had been playing Crosswords DS (see my review) and thought that it was too easy. I was right and wrong. Right that it was easier to use and the puzzles are easier to solve. However wrong by buying this software because of the software problems in using this game. The idea the you can focus on the clues like in Crosswords DS is not here in this software. on the possitive side, The puzzles are more of a challedge to solve.

Interface ruined the game

Nuknuk, Amazon

  • Summary: Pros: -You get the familiar crossword puzzles from USA Today. If you are a fan of that newspaper's puzzles, then that is the kind of questions and material you will get. Cons: -Interface is horrible. Definitely needs some improvement. -The pad for handwriting recognition system is very small to write on. -The QWERTY interface is also difficult to use. The font used are hard to recognize.
