    It seems like they DID make some effort to add variety to this game, while _completely_ overlooking the entire simplistic _point_ of the whole thing... There is no sense here of actually WHACKING THE MOLE... a mole pops up, you tap him and he goes down. There is no exciting thud. There is no sense of bashing his head. It should be renamed TAP-A-MOLE... or more like' tap-a-mole' It seems like they DID make some effort to add variety to this game, while _completely_ overlooking the entire simplistic _point_ of the whole thing...

It should be renamed TAP-A-MOLE... or more like' tap-a-mole' (it doesn't deserve CAPS. A game of this nature _should_ deserve CAPS.) Also, too many moles pop up at once, so you need to continuously whizz around the screen tapping here, there and everywhere. Tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap.. here's your score. There is no sense of satisfaction in splatting an expected popup mole square on the noggin. What is the point then in providing 'random presents' to bash, or offering alternative gaming modes if the _only_ gameplay offered in the original product is completely missing?? I bought this game for my 4 year old daughter. She put it on once, ran the stylus over the screen as the moles popped up, then removed it from the DS in favour of Animal Crossing. That game hasn't left the handheld yet (weeks later), but when it does, I am certain that it won't be for this turkey. Expand

    This game is horrible. Tap the mole. That's the whole point! This game would be much better if the stylus turns into a hammer and smashes the game, and the money you spent on the worthless garbage would come out. I would prefer space invasion resolution over this stinking junk. WARNING do not buy this horrible game, as it is a waste of time.

  1. Attempting to make Whac-a-Mole into a game is like trying to pass of an appetizer as the main course.

    But even with the bells and whistles the developers try to throw into this virtual recreation, it just doesn't match the fun of the actual mechanical classic, something that players can exert themselves over for a few quarters and move on.
  3. 20
    When you take the physical activity and cheap, tacky prizes out of Whac-A-Mole, you're left with virtually nothing.
