    An excellent puzzle title that offers mixture of simple but challenging gameplay. The multiplayer options and extra downloadable content will help to keep this game in most peoples PSPs.
  2. A one-trick pony, but it does it well. Multiplayer options are nice, but Go! Sudoku is not necessarily a party game. [Jan 2006]
  3. This is a game that really benefits from its electronic transformation – it is far superior to its paper and pen counterpart. And this is coming from a self-confessed techno-phobe.

    Exactly the title that you would expect, whilst the game isn't likely to be a system seller it does offer some 1000 Sudoku puzzles and the multiplayer is a handy inclusion that sets this game apart from all the other Sudoku games out there; although it is disappointing that the gameshare feature is heavily under utilised.
  5. A good choice for those who want to learn how to play the game properly and also are sick of making mistakes and not being able to rub out pen marks.

    The wireless multiplayer options elevate it above its pen-and-paper siblings, and so does its music and visual presentation. Throw in 1,000 included challenges and downloadable puzzles and what you get is one decent little package.
  7. A competent package, but due to the pervasive nature of Sudoku these days, you probably don't need to spend any money to get puzzles like this.
  8. This game just doesn’t give me enough to make it worth my money.
  9. So the developers have crafted a very playable puzzle game with a decent multiplayer aspect and screwed it up with a tiny bit of bad programming. Go! Sudoku is nearly scuttled by this strange bug, which is a real shame.
  10. Go! Sudoku may be addictive but because of the repetitious nature of the puzzles, you might wonder why it's worth forking out $50.
  11. The only real benefit I could find for buying a Sudoku game on the PSP is the ability to wirelessly download additional puzzles, free of charge.
  12. You get Sudoku in every paper, and books of the stuff cost less than a quid, but this costs 30 pounds, making it non-essential for all but the most hardened number crunchers. [Apr 2006, p.96]
  13. I'll stick to paper and pencil versions of sudoku until a cleaned-up sequel appears. [July 2006, p.82]

    I've had this for years - custom backgrounds has always worked fine for me. Perhaps the issue is elsewhere. The "please wait" bug is *very* annoying, but it's still playable if you're not easily frustrated - and if you keep your battery charged up full and have it plugged in, it minimizes it. (obviously not ideal!) Full Review »

    Until the bugs are fixed this product is unusable. Seeing as the "Please Wait" bug has been known for over four months now, why is the product still on the store shelves. Full Review »

    Custom Backgrounds DO Work! I just found out how to get custom backgrounds to work from ubisoft's support page. Apparently there was a typo and you need to make the directory /SudokuPhotos instead of /SudokuPhoto! Full Review »
