Buy yourself a $1 crossword puzzle book and buy something else with the saved money

Is that the one that is $30? That is waaayyy too much if you ask me.

If it's anything like the original, the actual crosswords are pretty bad. :(

I got this a while back when it was part of the "Get Donkey Kong Free" deal.

Yes, $30 is a bit steep, but I find myself playing it quite often during the week, usually on the bus ride into work. I spend most of my time doing the Anagram puzzles. I guess it's just a lot of fun trying to figure out all of the words you can squeeze out of the letters provided. They also have word search games, so there are really three types of puzzles available.

While the easy crosswords can be lame, the medium and hard puzzles aren't bad. There's also the free puzzles that you receive via SpotPass, which are pretty good. They also have a large puzzle that will take you some time to finish, so all-in-all it's got enough good content to keep you coming back for more.

I purchased the game from the eShop, so it will always be available without me having to switch cartridges. I've been quite satisfied with the game since I bought it. One thing I will point out, though, is that the built-in library of words is not all-inclusive. While doing the daily Word Paths puzzle, and even in the Anagrams, there are certain words that are not recognized. Two examples are the words ALE and EDEN. I don't know why they were left out, but I run into this now and again when trying to solve the puzzles. I guess we can chalk it up to them not being able to include every single word in the English Language in a finite memory space.

Just my 2 cents on the matter.

Regards,

Brian

Buy the DS game used at your local gamestop. It's the same game, but cheaper.
