    This game has a lot in it and it can be challenging to play it's hard with crosswords but you can get a hand of it and the large crosswords are not bad also the word searches for small are medium challenging but the large word searchers are hard

    This game is awesome! It makes you think really hard and it challenges the brain! It has over 1,000 crossword puzzles and it has anagrams, word searches, and words of the day! I'd recommend this to everyone and anyone who likes crosswords and word searches!

    Crosswords Plus for the Nintendo 3DS is a great word game. It has several different games included: crossword puzzles, anagrams, word searches, and Word Paths. Most of the games have easy, medium, and hard difficulty levels to choose from. All in all, there are thousands of puzzles available.

It has several different games included: crossword puzzles, anagrams, word searches, and Word Paths. Most of the games have easy, medium, and hard difficulty levels to choose from. All in all, there are thousands of puzzles available. While the game is fun and doesn't go overboard in it's presentation, it does have one serious flaw. When in Crossword mode, to write a letter you must write the letter using your stylus on the touchscreen. While more often then not it works, there are some frustrating incidences where the system simply cannot decipher the letter you are writing. This can be very challenging in a game where you are working against a clock. There is also some clunkiness when navigating from vertical to horizontal planes in the crossword puzzles. If the game had a better letter recognition system and easier way to move around the puzzles available, this would be one of the best word games ever made for a handheld console. As it stands, it is a great filler game for any 3DS collection, but certainly won't be the best 3DS game you own. Expand

    Crosswords Plus is one of the handheld's more enjoyable and satisfying puzzle games, one that overflows with value. It lacks visual punch, but pound for pound, it goes quite well with a tropical drink.

    Crosswords Plus hides a ton of content, totaling at least several dozen hours. It is a well-made game with a decent amount of variety and a nice feedback loop. If Layton games don't offer enough word puzzles for your liking, then maybe you should cross some words, solve some word searches, and lay out some anagrams on your 3DS.

    Crossword fans might find some value, but those who aren't dead set on word-based head-scratchers can do a lot better, for far cheaper.
