    Leave this one alone and stock up on some Sudoku paperbacks instead.

    Do yourself a favor and purchase "Brain Age" or "Sudoku Gridmaster," but do not fall for this title. It will trap your soul and take away your spirit!

    Impossible puzzles, terrible graphics and sound, and a counterintuitive interface suck all the fun out of this otherwise entertaining hobby.

    This is as bad as it gets. Interface, sound, visuals. It's all bad and then some. Buying a 1 dollar book is a m u c h better choice. No

Stores should be ashamed of selling this game, and I'll think twice next time I see a game that looks interesting. P l e a s e do not buy this crap. Sudoku Gridmaster earns a score of 20 in comparison

    I finally tracked down this game at the bottom of the barrel at Fry's and it was only $20, but I'm sorry I bought it. I wanted this I finally tracked down this game at the bottom of the barrel at Fry's and it was only $20, but I'm sorry I bought it. I wanted this over Gridmaster because I read it had an option to write in numbers, it generates random puzzles, and it has a two player mode. Well, it doesn't have an option to write in numbers (it just says using the touch screen to choose numbers makes it faster) and the two player mode means switching off the same DS system and taking turns. I was hoping for download play and seeing who could finish the same sudoku first. This game is ugly looking (the themes are horrible) and it's just so boring to play. I really hope to god that the Brain Age team who did the Sudoku makes a full fledged game with multiplayer action. Full Review »
