 Must have for Scrabble/word game fans

| | See all Peenster's reviews (1)

I have been waiting for the release of Scrabble on DS for a while. I have to say, it was worth waiting for. Easy to play and to view the board- you can zoom in and out, easy to rearrange tiles and put them together on the board too. It's nice you get definitions of words too as you put them down.

My only problems with it are, as previous reviewer said, it doesn't have enough statistics about the games you have played. In addition to this, it would be nice if the top screen displayed the scores and words that have been made during the game, as opposed to being almost entirely devoted to explaining the rules and giving you tips- something that Scrabble player will already know!

Also, if you are used to playing with different dictionaries, you'll have to get used to the Collins official one they use in this game. Not a major problem, but can take some adjusting to. Might be nice if you can edit the dictionary yourself, but this is a minor point.

Overall, it is very enjoyable, and the more challenging opponents, are certainly that, it will help keep your mind sharp!

 Good - but flawed

| | See all Shooteminthehead's reviews (2)

I fancy myself as pretty good at Scrabble, though I'm not in a club and have never played competitively. When I first got this game and started playing the career mode, I thought it was great, though it's pretty annoying that you have to 'unlock' higher skill levels by winning games. They should be available from the start for more experienced players but this game seems to make the assumption that players are either unfamiliar or new to the game, as evidenced by the constant stream of 'hints and tips' on the top screen which are obviously meant to be helpful but which are distracting if you don't require them and are also un-turn-offable. I'd much rather have seen this screen used to display game stats but the word definitions are a nice touch, even though the definitions of every word formed in a turn aren't shown - just one is. Frustrating if the definition shown isn't of the particular word you're unfamiliar with. But back to the career mode: I was really enjoying playing against the virtual AI, which offers a reasonable challenge at 'National' level, and managed to reach the World Tournament pretty quickly...but then the game starts having a laugh. In the World Tournament, you're expected to make all your moves for the ENTIRE game in just 5 minutes. This, against an AI opponent who can play high-scoring words in mere seconds - what chance does the human brain have? Though I'd rather not play with a time limit at all, in the World Tournament it's mandatory. 5 minutes per turn would've at least been reasonable but for the entire game it's ludicrous. How on earth are you supposed to think, sort your tiles and then place them, and win the game against the best AI the game has to offer...in just 5 minutes? Sorry, but that difficulty is just outrageous. I don't do speed-Scrabble, I'm afraid. I like to think about my move, meaning I'm stuck with just playing meaningless 'quick games'. The near-vertical difficulty hike at 'World' level ruined the whole game for me and I probably wouldn't have bought it had I known this. Why couldn't we just have had all skill levels available from the start (the challenge then being to beat the computer AI of one's chosen skill level), with the option to set our own game parameters, ie. time limit or no time limit - just like every other virtual version of the game I've ever played? Still, the interface is nice - if a bit fiddly - but I could do without the childish 'avatars'. Stop trying to 'jazz up' Scrabble - it's just Scrabble, okay?

 Good simulation of a classic board game.

| | See all Paul3065's reviews (11)

At last the classic word game is available for the DS. The simulation has been nicely implemented with clear graphic design and good touch screen control. The computer AI is quite good and you should find a real challenge from the stronger opponents. There is a career mode which takes you from local tournaments to world championships.

My main gripe is the lack of playing statistics for the main game of scrabble. Oddly enough there are stats kept for your last ten tries on the three mini games!

That aside, this is a game which will appeal to Scrabble fans and word game nuts.

 Highly addictive

Good game but with some annoying shortcomings:

- Quirky dictionary
- No stats
- Board doesn't quite fit screen
- Can't review completed game
- Easy to hit "pass turn" by mistake

 Best DS Game Ever!!

| | See all Joannasephina's reviews (3)

This is without a doubt the best DS game (well, until the 2009 edition comes out!).
The minigames make it even more enjoyable that traditional scrabble, and help to build up your speed.
To all of the people who moan about "made-up words" that don't appear in their English Dictionery - one suggestion, try looking in the Scrabble Dictionary instead!!!!!!!!!!
Ignore all of the bad reviews, this game is well worth the money. I have pre-ordered the 2009 edition and can't wait for online player mode which will mean even more hours spent Scrabbling.
