    Surprisingly fun and has a bit of staying power.

    Offers a much more entertaining mix than many of the other sports titles we've seen on both DS and 3DS. It's not a game that will keep you captivated for months, but has plenty of fun for short bursts of high score chasing.
  3. A fun collection ofmini-games complicated by a pointless gimmick.

    Ultimately, charm and high replayability trump the sometimes-awkward controls. [Aug 2011, p.89]

    Two pens = double the fun? Not really, because while the seven sports seem indeed well chosen, in practice they nevertheless lack variety.

    A collection of sporting mini-games that, while initially entertaining, prove far too simple and lifeless.

    If you're a big fan of minigame collections, it's a decent title to pick up after the price drops.

    DualPenSports is a misguided attempt at starting a 3DS franchise based on a technically and practically ineffective gimmick.

    A collection of ordinary games with no soul and an awkward gimmick. [Aug 2011, p.66]

    Uses an ineffective gimmick as its foundation and includes far too simple takes on seven sports, featuring some cumbersome controls and tedious pacing to boot.

    C'mon, we all deserve better than this, no matter how slim the pickings are for the 3DS right now.
