    While the Wii Version is the worst offender, this is still nearly as bad. And it still gets a zero! Avoid. Get Disgaea if you want a good, cheap DS game.

    Carnival games on the DS gets boring, very quickly and while some games are extremely easy others are much harder. The games themselves are not very fun and all you unlock are costumes that your own avatar can wear that has no benefit on the gameplay what so ever. A few of the games are strangely addictive but most are quite boring and I often found myself just sticking with a hand full of them. There is to fun to be had here but not for very long at all.

  1. 2K's Carnival Games for Wii is a fun, pick-up-and-play party game that many enjoyed, but unfortunately the fun factor doesn't translate well to the DS. [Aug 2008, p.90]

    The only challenge comes from the occasionally imprecise controls.
  3. If you enjoy mini-games with a focus upon beating previous high scores and unlocking mostly pointless extras for your character then you can't go far wrong with this.
