    No they are intended to make money off their parents.

    Its a shame that not all of these titles have the quality of the ones that Nintendo makes.

    I personally encourage educational software on the DS.

    Same here. Not everything should be catered to the 16-year-old chump (or 30-something-year-old, in my case). Hadrian might be right...but he might also be wrong. We don't know the developers personally -- at least I don't -- and guessing their intentions aren't gonna bring us any closer to the actual truth of the matter. But I have a couple of friends who specialize in children's products because they were inspired early on in their careers to try to make something of quality for kids. Sure, they make money, but that doesn't make the product(s) any less valuable.

    Trying to to judge this game from our older points of view is perhaps not the best meter for deciding whether or not the game is any good, with respect to the audience it's intended for.

    Well, I didn't say edutainment was crap. LAst night (4 a.m. or so) there was a couple releases...and they were like all, IMO, crap.

    I like edutainment: learning to drive, brain age(if that counts), learning different languages, etc.

    More kids have DS than older folks - they'd be interested in this crap game (not dissin' the genre; I'm dissing the game).

    Yes, but it's because you're the only one who actually tried it. [​IMG]
