  1. My Japanese Coach is a great idea that's well implemented and definitely worth investing in if you're trying to learn Japanese. Instead of carrying around a heavy dictionary or book, all you need is your pocket-sized DS, and of course a book can't pronounce words or record and playback your own speech.

    Although still not quite placing enough emphasis on the gameplay aspect, My Japanese Coach proves how far edutainment titles have come in regards to both learning and actual entertainment.
  3. 55
    Due to the sometimes confusing explanations and quirky vocabulary, it's hard to offer this game to serious students of Japanese. The language is just too hard to try and cram into a handheld game that consists of a handful of mini-games.
  4. A bit more entertaining than reading a textbook, only not as effective. Stick to Minna no Nihongo and Japanesepod101.
