Review: CrossworDS

Friday, March 5th, 2010 by pea kay

Title: CrossworDS
Developer/Publisher: Nuevo Retro Games
Platforms: Nintendo DS
Release Date: 05/05/08
Number of Players: one player game

I imagine I’ll likely say this often- I’m not really a gamer. Surely, it would be a sin against the video game fates if I were to call myself a capital “G” gamer. I’m much more of a casual player, preferring to leave the hard core stuff to the true geeks of the genre. That being said, this is exactly my kind of game. CrossworDS doesn’t offer high end graphic arts of wild anime fighters flipping swords the size of mack trucks to make with the oohs and aahs. It doesn’t offer button mashing combat, in depth story with dramatic plot twists or some cliffhanger ending designed to get you to blow another sixty dollars on a tale, that if we were wiser, we could watch for free on basic cable in the early afternoons, complete with a glass of Sherri and a bowl full of bon-bons. What it will give you is simple, clean fun with actual intellectual results.
