  A let down

| | See all gill2006's reviews (1)

This is one game I was really wanting but have found it quite a let down. I either don't know the games on it (I don't know where the title "42 All Time Classics" has come from) or, even after repeatedly reading the "help" screens, don't understand how some of the games work and find that some always gear it so you lose. I tend to go back to the same ones (darts, bowling, etc) so it does get boring. The challenge mode is quite good until, once again, you come up against a game you either haven't heard of or can't get to grips with.

After reading all the great reveiws on this game, i decided to buy it. And when i first played it i was totally dissapointed! It could just be me, but i didnt know hardly any of the card games and the games i did know it told me how to play which totally took the fun away. After a bit of fiddling i did manage to turn off the help, which did improve it but i still think this game is not as great as i had expected.

  You can't go wrong with this at any age

This is my light relief after Brain Trainer and it is so addicitive. The images and sound effects are good and the games are challenging and varied.

The only problem I have with this this game is that we all fight to play it and just when I get it the Ds is usually flat!! This game is brill as there is literally something for everyone, such a great variety, most of the games are oldies but they are still very addictive! We would all highly recommend this game & we are all from different age ranges, both kids and adults. Buy this game -- you won't regret it!! ( well actually you will 'cos once you start you won't want to put it down!!)

  Basic But Strangly Addictive

| | See all BlueRogue's reviews (151)

42 games-in-one is one of those casual games that keep you going for hours on end. Because of this flights, train journeys and bus travel are made more bareable by the fact you can so easily amuse yourself. It's easy enough to pick up for anyone to play regardless of age or gender.
At times I would start playing at 5:00pm and then finish playing at around midnight with my only thoughts being "It's that late already?"
42 In-One despite being DS's oldest game is still the most popular and I'll bet anything that there are people who still play it.

Great as almost everyone i know has a ds so i always carry it around with me and play this game which is so fun. I like Texas Hold em' and balance (The one where you have to balance a piece onto a scale) its just great fun.

  A great game for all the family

| | See all brownieowl's reviews (49)

This game is highley addictive and great for all members of family. The best thing about it is connecting tomup to 8 people using ALL 42 games included. It makes you really competitive and makes us all fall about laughing when ludo goes on for ever and you can't get a 6 and every one else is nearly finished!! A huge range of games. Our family's personal favourites are: bowling, darts, stacking and soda shake!!

I've had this game for at least two years and still play it near enough every day. There is so much choice that you can have a new favourite every week. For example, I have finally worked out Koi-Koi, a Japanese card game, which has turned out to be brilliant (I had avoided it in favour of games I already knew how to play) and so am getting something new out of the game even now. I've used it on-line via Wi-Fi and it worked really well. Just a great game to always have with you, you'll certainly get your money's worth!
