Nice interface & backrounds but not worth the pop-up interuptions
11 January 2009
Summary: I thought the interface for this game was far better than any of the ones I've played thus far. I also think the backgrounds are vivid and really add to the "playing atmosphere" or "gaming experience." HOWEVER, this does NOT make my patience for this game any better.
Summary: This is the absolutely the dumbist sudoku game EVER! The game started out fine. Relaxing music, you choose the difficulty, style, and then you play. Well I put a wrong number in one of the boxes...Then it TELLS YOU THAT YOU PUT IN THE WRONG NUMBER!!! WhAt?! No! Nuh-uh! That defeates the WHOLE GAME!

Summary: We love Sudoku. We play it online quite a lot, and use the Brain Age version of Sudoku frequently as well. We thought it'd be great to have a PSP game solely dedicated to Sudoku. Unfortunately, the Go! Sudoku implementation was poor. First off, about the gameplay in general.
Summary: I agree with the other reviews. The game itself is fun and challenging but there is a terrible glitch in the programming. Ubisoft, please hear our voices and fix this problem. It is very irritating that the "Attention" screen pops up in the middle of a game for no reason at all.
Summary: I concur with the other reviews. This game has an annoying defect. I went so far as to contact tech support. This is what I was told. "Response (Jason) - 04/10/2006 11:50 AM Unfortunately, this is a known problem with the game that will occur when there is less than a 40% charge on the battery.
Summary: The overall idea and implementation for this game is good. I think there are ways it could be improved. But all that doesn't really matter. There is a horrible bug where a huge pop-up window comes up during game-play, basically covering the entire board. The pop-up says "ATTENTION! Please wait...
Summary: There is a serious programming flaw in this game. A "warning" window pops up every few minutes (unless your PSP is fully charged AND plugged in!). This is INCREDIBLY annoying and I am returning the game.
Summary: As the reviewer below said, it will tell you as soon as you make a wrong move. This significantly reduce the challenge. Even worse, about every 45 to 60 seconds while you are playing an Attention alert comes up covering most of the screen telling you to wait. After 10 seconds or so it goes away.
Summary: I'm updating my review as I have had the time to play this game. The flaws just pile up: 1) The game will warn you if you place an incorrect number. That alone ruins the game. 2) I though flaw #1 was bad until I started seeing the "Attention... please wait" pop-ups.
Summary: If you want to play sudoku get a book for a fiver instead of paying £16.99 for a game. If you are a hard-core fan and don't want any other game than get this. It simply isn't worth it. ONLY IF YOU MUST!
