As much as I love my Nintendo DS Lite, I have been struggling to find games that really catch my attention. Super Mario 64 DS was quite dissapointing and really missed out on the fact the DS doesn’t have an analogue stick, but 42 All Time Classics (Game Fortune Bag) is a great selection of mini games that more importantly use the full online capabilities of the hand held console.
For just £16.99, I have got a great selection of 42 games including but not limited to basic, intermediate and advanced card games (Texas Hold ’em, Solitaire, Blackjack etc), Chess, Dominoes, Checkers, Darts, Billiards, and bowling. The card games are quite difficult on the eyes to read the information on the cards, however I have found that most of the games have been very pleasurable especially with the full online capabilities that are available for most of the mini games. It really angers me when you see so many DS titles miss out on online functionality and although local gaming is used a great deal, the full online aspect is often ignored, but 42 All Time Classics thankfully takes full advantage.
If you are looking for a bargain that includes many mini games that will whittle down the hours, then 42 All Time Classics for the Nintendo DS is a worthy purchase and deserves a place in anybodies collection.
