    This was one of the worst games I've ever owned! No save after various tasks so that if you are stumped you can return to that specific area later. I found I had to leave the game on for hours while I did other things so that I didn't have to begin at an earlier point

    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.
  2. There will be little debate that Inkheart makes a better novel and a movie than it does a game. Don't let it break your heart.
  3. For everyone else, there’s some mild point-and-click fun to be had, but this is one adventure that’s simply too paper thin.
