    I have played this on my DS and think it does not sure the full capabilities of the DS. The graphics could be far better and you hardly ever use the touchscreen which is a big dssappoinment, i thought that the DS was to go where no other portable system had gone before, so why ruin it with making games that are just like the Game Boy Advance games.

    The new hardware is much more capable than what's being done here.

    Being able to control some of the action on the touch screen is a nice feature and really comes in handy. I would have liked to see more things to do with the screen though.
