Good bit of fun...not much gameplay here though...,
This review is from: DualPenSports - Nintendo 3DS (Video Game)
While it boasts 7 mini games, its really not the full games, you don't have a full boxing match or a full baseball game. Everything is challenges based upon those games. Such as a hitting challenge. Or a knockdown challenge. While they are fun...they eventually start to get stale. It gets more difficult and things unlock over time. But don't expect too much out of this. The gimmick is two stylus to play the game, I found most games were perfectly playable with one stylus. Remember, the touch pad can only handle one stylus at a time (only one thing can touch the touchpad at any given time, you can't register two movements on the touchpad at once), the two stylus control is simply so you can do things with two hands and go from one command to another faster. But with a little extra challenge, you can do the same with one hand and one stylus. This makes it easier to play and keep the 3D on. But don't expect much from the 3D either...some games look really nice like boxing and paragliding. Others however look way too strong and not well done (ghosting, seeing double..changing the 3D slider doesn't fix it much either). I found myself turning the 3D way down or even off. Graphically there isn't much to this game and I feel this is just a juiced up DS game that was put on the 3DS instead. There is fun to be had here, this will pass the time, but you may find yourself getting tired after awhile of the same thing over and over. The 7 mini-games are based on Baseball, Boxing, Paragliding, Archery, Basketball, Soccer and Skiing. They have an 8-bit DIG DUG logo make an appearance which is neat. But overall...its not much of a game. They add in daily challenges and finger exercises. They work and will kill some time but they are just tack-ons. Definately a game more for the younger players and mainstream non-gamers. Because it's a little on the easy side. It's not a bad game, its just not much of a game. Don't go into this expecting full sports games.
