Is It Any Good?

While this compilation of games has a lot to offer families, it isn't perfect. Directions often aren't clear, and some of the card games are hard to play because the graphics are so tiny. Likewise, it's tough to tell 3-D depth when using the Mah Jongg tiles, making it difficult to discern which tiles are on top and available to match. And the games don't allow you to turn off the timer -- not every kid enjoys playing under pressure.

TouchMaster has several games where two players can play by passing around one DS. Midway Games also hosts tournament play online with a Nintendo DS wireless Internet connection. But to play two-person games using two DS systems, the second player must also own TouchMaster. It would have been better to offer this option as a free download using only one game cartridge.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
