Thank you for saying what needed to be said!

Two things..

1) Online play is the most addictive part of the game to me, I think, but to each their own. I played Arkanoid for SNES a lot as a kid, and that game required staying home and playing on a TV, so maybe I am just used to staying at home and playing Arkanoid for hours. Also, online play makes everything better, and I have a few friends that play it too so it makes it even more enjoyable. Even with that friend code nonsense I am so sick of.

2) A more serious issue I have with Arkanoid DS isn't even entirely its fault. Basically, the game is meant to be played with vertical orientation (like Tetris). To make full use of the space provided, this means that the developers had to split the playing area in two, with dead space at the center.

**** I hate this :( Would be a must buy game otherwise.

Anyways, another great review from you. Been reading some good stuff from you lately.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the review and that you've been enjoying some of my other recent stuff. My reviews tend to get a lot of hits but not usually any feedback from the regulars here, so I'm never quite sure who's actually reading them. That goes for a lot of reviews, though, so I can't really complain. Anyway, thanks again!

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
