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.
I got this as a birthday present and I was a bit dubious as to whether I would like it or not, but it is pretty good once you get used to it. There are skill levels, which allow you to start off with smaller crosswords and progress to harder ones later on... It did take a bit of practice before I got the hang of it, but all in all it is a nifty little game that can help to pass the time on trains, buses, work breaks, etc. Probably not one for the hardcore gamer, but well worth a look.
An absolutely terrible excuse for a crossword game. A total of around 500 crosswords and about 50 clues it recycles for each one.
The limited space on the DS screen means the majority of clues are 3 letters long and the creators seem to have a strange obsession with landmarks in Asia.
The 3 difficulties is a farce, ranging from easy, medium and hard all it means is a slightly smaller crossword the easier you go.
All in all, severely disappointed and hugely regret buying it. I now just spend £2 a month and buy a crossword magazine. Much better.
After waiting a couple of months for the release of CrossworDS I wish I had not bothered.The questions vary from Olympic medalists over the past 40 years, Nobel peace winners, American plate codes and other strange questions.The crosswords are repetitive and although advertised as containing 2700 puzzles that means 500 in 5 different languages. My advice don't bother.
