  • Summary: The game is designed to be the secret training weapon for both accomplished and novice SCRABBLE players. The handheld versions offer classic and new ways to play the time-tested crossword game, as well as drills and exercises to improve strategy and performance. SCRABBLE for the Nintendo DS and PSP offers players three modes of play. Classic mode features traditional SCRABBLE game play while Speed mode pits players in a head-to-head race against the clock competing with friends or the device AI. The third mode, called SCRABBLE SLAM, is based on Hasbro’s new card game and challenges players to discard their virtual SLAM cards by making as many four letter words as possible within a two-minute time period. The SCRABBLE handheld versions are loaded with additional features to heighten the interactive SCRABBLE play experience and transform the average player into a superior "wordie." SCRABBLE Trainer allows players to strengthen their vocabulary and playing skills with six exercises at various difficulty levels designed to help improve strategy and performance. Word lovers will also appreciate the official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary and SCRABBLE Word Finder. For the more competitive player, the Nintendo DS offers Wi-Fi multiplayer capability for both single and multi-cart play, allowing up to four players to engage in a linguistic showdown.

    The single-player portion leaves a lot to be desired thanks to the shady AI, though it's still good practice. Multiplayer can be a lot of fun though, and that's really the whole point anyway.
  2. This edition of Scrabble for the DS is a good traveling companion. It’s easy to play and pass around, and the ability to share the game with others without multiple cartridges is great. The various option settings and the training and ranking features add to the overall experience.
  3. There is stat tracking, but it’s not very in-depth, and with a game so basic that it’s commonly played with blocks of wood I have to think it could have been fleshed out into a different, though similar experience.
