5.0 out of 5 stars A Pocket-Size Carnival With Big Fun! July 28, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have a little patience to learn and appreciate the differences between this and the Wii's Carnival Games, then you are sure to enjoy this game! It's neither harder nor easier as a whole, and it's biggest benefit is you can take it with you anywhere and play it in small spaces!

I loved the Wii version (see my review for it), but the DS one is quite a departure from that one in a number of ways. It's still a fantastic game though and here are my thoughts about it in great detail...

As you start your game, you will create your character with the newly added option to change his/her skin tone (how they left this out of the Wii version, one may never know!). Then once you have your person ready to go, you are free to explore the Carnival.
To start with, you can freely roam this carnival (looks a lot like Animal Crossing in some ways, I think)...but you can walk up to each individual game, or browse the grounds and check out the little things like getting your picture taken or helping a cat find his lost yarn, or riding a seesaw with a little girl to get bonus items. But as you walk up to the games, you will hear a person yelling something specific to a game (like in the Wii version), and yes this one is fully voiced through and through. You can then click on a game and start playing it, and here is what I have to say about the individual games:

First of all, each of the 23 games have instructions that appear when you start them, like in the Wii version, so you will know how to play...

Frog Leap: This has frogs (lilypads), cannonballs (pirate ships), and baby chicks (nests) that you launch into the places they belong using a stylus pulled launching mechanism. It is slightly frustrating for me because I am so disturbingly inaccurate.

3.0 out of 5 stars My third favorite game of 20 October 6, 2008
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have 20 DS games and I like this game a lot.
I like that you can get tickets from all kidns of games and buy all kinds of clothes. It is extremely fun. My favorite mini game on Carnival is one game where you have to shoot different targets and I got one of the hightest scores. Some of the games are challenging. For example, one of the challenging games is where you have to move a magnifying glass with your stylus and there is a line that you have to follow with it. If you touch the line, you get electrocuted! It is a wonderful game. And there are all different varieties. William S. Panama & Florida

2.0 out of 5 stars mediocre collection of mini-games May 24, 2009
By Mandi
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I like to collect DS games that are comprised of a nice assortment of mini-games, such as Touchmaster and even The New Super Mario Bros. But I have to say I was a little disappointed with Carnival Games for DS, despite it's good reviews.

The game is cute in style, and creative in concept. You fashion your character to your own liking, then have him or her wander around a carnival from booth to booth where you play games and try to win tickets. If you get enough tickets you might even unlock a prize which goes into your collection of clothes, shoes, hats, and accessories. The collection delivers some interesting clothing/accessory items, and some of the accessories even have special abilities--for example the radar gun zaps you up into a UFO and drops you off onto a different part of the carnival grounds. But there really isn't much else to do aside from trying to complete this collection.

Some of the games were okay, but none that I really had any desire to play over and over after winning both prizes, even just to accumulate tickets. Most of the games were ridiculously easy to master, while some were a little difficult, and a few just downright frustrating. There were also a few secrets that didn't take me long to figure out that got me some rare items to add to my collection--but still nothing that made any significant changes in the game itself.

If you can find this game for about half the cost of what you would pay for it in the store then I say go ahead and give it a shot. But I just feel like it was a bit of a waist of money for me to only have played it less than a week and already put it down for good.

5.0 out of 5 stars crazy fun ! August 2, 2008
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game will give you crazy fun ! it's siimple and passes the time. i especially love alley ball, and the milk bottle toss. if you are looking for a game to pick up and play for a few minutes this would be it. i don't think this will keep you occupied for hours because there are just so many games on there and once you have played them all like 100 times, you will get bored. i have unlocked all but one item and i discovered all the little secret things walking around the park but i find myself picking this up when i have a few minutes to pass time. i am an adult gamer and shorter attention span than most, i get bored VERY easily. get this game if you loved those carnival games as a might just bring back some memories. overall this is a great game and in fact, i have ordered 2 more for friends for christmas. have a great time at the carnival !

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as fun as the Wii version July 18, 2008
By Brian
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS|Edition:Standard
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought the Wii version of Carnival games was a lot of fun despite some problems. I picked up the DS version expecting a scaled down version of the Wii game. Unfortunately, a lot of fun was lost in the translation

Skee Ball/Alley Ball was one of my favorite games in the Wii version. The DS version is set up where you flick the stylus to roll the ball. The problem is you seem to only be able to not flick the ball far enough or flick it so hard that it misses any of the high point targets

The Basketball Shooutout is now just a timing game. You have to tap 3 basketballs in a row and then try to tap the center of the moving target to shoot. Even when I hit the center of the target, the shots still missed. You also miss all the shots on the top screen since you are focused on the bottom screen.

The new games for the DS version are bumper boats, rc rally and the shooting gallery. bumper boats is a top down driving game where you try to pick up points. There is no way to brake which is fusturating as you have to worry about bombs on the water that can harm you. rc rally is another top down driving game with poor course design. Oil slicks are placed in a narrow spot of track where they are difficult to avoid. Shooting gallery is fun and has interactive sound targets

The basket toss makes you flip the DS sideways to toss the balls in the bucket. It appears you have to use your left hand to use the stylus to toss the balls.

One improvement over the Wii version is you get more attempts per game so you have a better chance of getting to the more difficult parts of the game. Basket toss gives you 5 tosses verus 3 on the Wii for example.

Overall some of the games are fun but I was expecting the game to be better.
