    Dr. Mario Express is a DSiware version of the classic Dr. Mario puzzle games. It does exactly what it says in the game's description, nothing more or less. Play the Classic Mode's level based gameplay or challenge a CPU in VS Battle Mode to prove who has the sharper wits and better reflexes. There are help options and basic video tutorials to help you get started if necessary and a highDr. Mario Express is a DSiware version of the classic Dr. Mario puzzle games.

There are help options and basic video tutorials to help you get started if necessary and a high score table to keep track of your best records. This game does not have any multiplayer modes of any kind. Although it is kind of a barebones product, it does exactly what it sets out to do, be Dr. Mario that you can play on the go and if you are interested in that take a look, if not interested then don't bother. If you don't wish to buy it but want it anyways, the game is free on Club Nintendo in exchange for 150 coins until the end of January 2012. Expand

    This is basically a portable Dr. Mario game. It lacks in modes, and it doesn't have online.(Even though that doesn't work anymore.) But, it's Dr. Mario, and it's portable! It looks good, it sounds really good, and it's just as fun as any other Dr. Mario game! It's only 500 points, too! The wii one has more modes and has online, but online doesn't work anymore and it only has 1 or 2 moreThis is basically a portable Dr. Mario game.

    This Express version is light on features but offers the core Dr. Mario experience in an inexpensive, downloadable, and portable dose. The lack of human-on-human multiplayer is disappointing but it's still a solid single-player experience.
  2. Despite being a little light on content, the core game is intact and it's seriously absorbing. Do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this one.
  3. In the end, Dr. Mario Express still features the same addictive gameplay the title has become so well known for over the years and it ends up being a welcome addition to a DSiWare game library that's been a bit lacking to date.
