Well, it's a step forward...
One could easily look at this and say "Ugh, another Sudoku game for the DS. Aren't developers even trying anymore?" However, Zendoku stands out from the crowd by being the first to actually expand upon Sudoku gameplay. Zendoku places emphasis on competetive play and throws minigames and special abilities into the mix, essentially becomming a Sudoku-style Puzzle Fighter. I wouldn't touch the other Sudoku games with a ten-foot pole, but I can hardly wait to try this one.
There are already too many mediocre sudoku games for the DS, so why another one? The "ninja" theme seems ludicrous just from looking at the box art. By the way, this game, like the other horrid versions of sudoku, features "infinite" replayability from a sudoku generator. The generator can't tell if the puzzle requires guessing (which should never happen in sudoku) or the difficulty level. One would be SO much better off with the fantastic sudoku freebie in Brain Age.
Game is not worth it.
I just finished testing the European version of this game, and it is not worth it at all. You are much better to play Sudoku Gridmaster or one of those other versions already released. P.S. - Toondoku is even worse then this game.
I think that if you like Sudoku and get bored with it in the middle of solving it, then you should get this because it looks like it's just trying to keep you entertained, which is why people made games in the first place.
Its an obvious decision...
This is supposed to be just like sudoku, right? Well, why not just buy one of the other sudoku games on ds for even less money, or, instead you could buy a sudoku book for even less than that!!!
I LOVE SUDOKU!! I LOVE THE DS!! WHAT A MATCH!! Fot those who love to use your head, this'll be perfect for you! A must by for the modern nerd!
what's up with this game? i've never heard of it before
