Look, I know reading isn't cool anymore, but getting your kid Inkheart on the DS is pretty much like getting them a book anyway. Only this book has really bad writing, and it makes readers do chores in between the chapters instead of just letting them enjoy the story.
If you love the movie, you might want to try this out just to see what it’s all about. If you are hankering for a decent adventure game with a book twist, go grab Hotel Dusk: Room 215. It’s a much better “read”.
Inkheart does offers two-player wireless play (mini-games only), assuming both players have a copy of the game, which is kind of insulting. I really can’t, in good conscience, recommend this DS game to any but my worst enemies.
