 A Lesson Learned.

| | See all Giddigirl's reviews (2)

This game has taught me to read others reviews before purchasing a game. Admittedly I bought my copy elsewhere, carried away on a 2 for 1 deal, played it once and hated it, never to be touched again. In 2 puzzles I was asked "Asian Country" 3 times, each with a different answer.
It was blatently either created in another country and translated badly, or created for the worldwide market with no thought for the actual users. I found the clues ridiculously vague or just plain incomprehensible.
The joy of the DS is that you can take it anywhere to play. The problem with CrossworDS is that you'd need to take an encyclopedia, dictionary and atlas with you too.
I wish I'd come onto Play.com and read the reviews before my impulse purchase. The 2 for 1 deal wasn't so great after all.

 Not as good as I thought it would be...

I enjoy crosswords, and usually complete them - so thought i'd give this game a go. Although its a good challenge, I found it quite hard to answer... (and that was on the easy mode!)

Very disappointed with this game. I love crosswords & i am quite good at them, but this was awful. The clues were very obscure, i reckon the creators are american, just going by the clues & answers. Big waste of money!

 Very disappointed

Have been waiting for this since I got my DS at the beginning of the year. Ordered it to take on holiday, and am really disappointed.
I suppose it may be great if you know every country's number plate code - in the first 3 crosswords I did I think I was asked for 5 number plate codes. There may be a large number of crosswords to attempt, but questions are very repetitive (again, in the first few crosswords I have received the clue 'Domestic animal' at least 3 times, with a different answer each time).
Many of the answers, even after 'cheating' to find them, made no sense at all, despite ploughing through the dictionary and thesaurus.
I would not recommend this to anyone, and after several hours trying to get my head around it will probably never use it again.
A huge disappointment.

 Not Bad

I bought this game on a whim as I quite like crosswords. It is not the best game for the Nintendo DS, but it does what it says - it gives you lots of crosswords to complete. I think it is an ok game and helps to fill in the time when you have to wait around or on long journeys. Overall, not bad.
