    Can't it be a rule that developers have to know something about the show before they make a whole game? That way half-baked, monotonous titles that do nothing for fans, like Drake and Josh won't keep getting made. Just stay away from this no talent title.
  2. It really is a shameless excuse to try and cash in on a license. Fans of the series will be disappointed in this brain numbing exercise.
  3. Drake and Josh: Talent Showdown is a huge waste of time and not worth trying even if you're a fan of the show.
  4. We've never met Josh or Drake, or even seen their TV programme, but after enduring this awful mess of a game we wish we were still completely ignorant of them. [Nov 2007, p.72]

    I do not know why critics think this game is bad. OK it might have some bugs and could get boring but I think this game was great. The minigames were kind of short but I still liked it. Full Review »

    Hi yall. I would like to apologize for my son, Zak D. (the D stands for Dumas), for trying to say Drake and Josh is better than Mario Bros. AND Phantom Hourglass. It seems that I may not be beating him hard enough these days. Due to my IBS, I can no longer wear belts and the pleasure I once received from strangling the little bastard has long since quelled. I'm going to sit little Zak down and present to him a dictionary, his spelling could use some work. It's Nickelodeon retard! Full Review »

    This is seriously my favorite game. Few titles such as this come along that really suck me in and keep me entertained for months. I really, truly, and honestly love this game, and encourage everybody to give it a chance. It's extremely enjoyable, and a blast for the hardcore DS gamer. Full Review »
