3.0 out of 5 stars One Jumpy Game! March 23, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This was the first time I ever pre-ordered a game; I was so excited that Scrabble was coming out for the DS. I started playing as soon as it arrived. I became frustrated pretty quickly with the whole placement of the tiles thing. I really thought it was just my DS which has seen a good amount of use. Thought my touch screen was getting worn out or something. I'm glad to see others are having the same issue, only because it means it's not just me! You try to place a letter on a particular square and more often than not, it jumps around somewhere else. It's spastic! I'm getting used to it now and I actually try to touch the square with the point of my instrument while placing the tile, which seems to give it a better chance of staying where I put it! This is a pretty serious glitch.

I really think they could have done a better job with the graphics and the colors. To make other schemes unlockables is a drag. And the music! Ick!

I give it three stars because I just love the game so much, just not this particular format. I'm really surprised by EA for releasing this out to the market when it doesn't seem ready.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Touch March 23, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got my Scrabble game over the weekend and have played about 75 games so far. The first dozen or so games were frustrating because this is most sensitive DS game I own, including Brain Age 1 & 2 and Flash Focus which are extremely sensitive. I even re-calibrated my DS to make sure I was touching the correct part of the screen, but it is the game that is ultra-sensitive. It takes a very fine touch to play the game, but once control and self-correction (compensating for the game's inefficiencies) is achieved, game play is very fun.

The features that are nice in this game are the ability to have the dictionary available, the list of two letter words and being able to select the skill level of your partner.

Hints can be turned on and off which was good when I was first learning to use the game. One feature that is interesting is being able to swap out blank tiles that are being used on the board for letters in your hand. This feature has the option of being turned off, but it is fun to always have a blank in your hand.

I am a huge Scrabble fan, owning the traditional board game, the deluxe version and even the Onyx version of the game. I've played Scrabble since I was very little and this is a fine addition to my Scrabble obsession.

3.0 out of 5 stars DS's AI vis-a-vis SCRABBLE for the PC's Maven, etc. April 26, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
SCRABBLE for the Nintendo DS is the second electronic version of SCRABBLE I've played. I've also played SCRABBLE for PC Windows and its infamous "Maven" artificial intelligence (AI) player. I therefore can't help but draw comparisons to see how far SCRABBLE has come in the e-gaming world.

First, the AI player for the DS version is a kinder and gentler opponent. It does not audibly gloat (chuckle or give the raspberry) after it makes 7-letter bingos or scores above, say, 60 points on its way to ALMOST inevitably trouncing players. (More about ALMOST later.)

Ever polite, the DS Lite version displays a bursting star on the screen when you make a bingo: "50+ points"..."Excellent!"

But SCRABBLE for the DS has a big problem for seasoned players.

They will be bored playing any level below 5. In fact, Level 5--although it does play 7-letter bingos--too often makes clumsy use of its tiles.

And going from playing Level 5 to playing Level 6 is noticeably harder! The Level 6 AI scores multiple bingos in every game and seems to acquire a fortuitous combination of consonants and vowels. I've marveled at its "luck" while staring at the three Us, two Is, and two Os on my rack.

I read somewhere, perhaps it was in Stefan Fatsis's bestseller _Word Freak,_ that players suspected Maven of cheating. I know for certain that Maven was able to see my rack and was therefore able to thwart my plays.

A healthy bit of paranoia makes me think that the DS's Level 6 AI is cheating, too, but in a different way or ways. It seems to place tiles where I am about to place them, for maximum points. Sure, this simply may be a matter of both of us seeing a good spot on the board; however, Level 6 has done this for a scant amount of points on its behalf.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Frustrating Game Play March 23, 2009
By Jeff
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I love playing Scrabble, but the version for the DS has very poor gameplay. It likes to just drop the tile in a random location or pulls the tile back to your tray. It sometimes takes up to 5 trys to get a tile in the right position.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Jumpy, Too Buggy, Too Frustrating June 22, 2009
By PCNiles
Platform for Display:Nintendo DS
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game in early June and have played it every day since. Few, if any, of the reviews here fail to mention the problem of the letters being difficult to position on the board, and my review is no exception.

I have found it nearly impossible at times to position the letters on the board. They jump back to the rack or anywhere on the board, over & over again. This problem severely impacts the enjoyment of the game. It is far too frustrating to try to play this game, and nearly impossible to play any of the timed training exercises.

I read here that if you recalibrate your Nintendo screen (you can do this on the opening screen prior to tapping the game card), it will eliminate the problem. I've tried doing that two times, and it has made absolutely no difference. The letters still are difficult to place.

The most frustrating thing that happens frequently is when you shuffle or move the letters around on the rack, and the "pass your turn" key is somehow activated. Suddenly you've lost your turn when you had no intention of passing. You have to be extremely careful when shuffling your letters not to activate "pass-your-turn" and frankly, I'm not sure it's possible NOT to have it happen occasionally, randomly.

The training games are pretty much useless because of one's inability to position the letter tiles quickly. All the training exercises are timed, and yet you'll spend precious seconds trying to position letters over & over again on the screen. There's no way you can get an accurate time based on your ability and knowledge because of that.

All in all, I am extremely disappointed in this game.
