    When it lags for me, it's when I change directions while running, and I'm pretty sure that it's just due to crappy transitions. I got used to it pretty fast, though/

    The game just has a terrible engine. This happens to everyone unless maybe you have a fast microsd card. Just deal with it.

    I'm using a Supercard DS-ONE with the latest firmware. It may be my flashcard, but it does indeed seem pretty choppy and such. I don't know if this happens on a real cartridge.

    At any rate, the game is still fun and playable! [​IMG]

    The game really isn't good, the engine is choppy and glitchy, theres no real "depth" to the gameplay, and it just feels unfinished.

    1. BioWare is a n00b when it comes to DS, if they took some more time, the game would be a lot better.
    2. Most of the time, the studio, touches up the trailer.
    3. Various reviews stated that the engine has lag, and the sound and videos are way too compressed.

    It's a matter of perspective. All reviews so far:

    IGN
    6.5 out of 10

    Game Informer
    8.5 out of 10

    Eurogamer
    7 out of 10

    Nintendo Power
    8 out of 10

    Ngamer UK
    7.9 out of 10

    GamePro
    3.5 out of 5

    Most reviews should be on here when they come:
    http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/941521.asp

    I really hate it when reviews are so split like this if I don't know if the game is good or not. Kirby Super Star Ultra did this as well:

    http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/949625.asp

    But then, almost all the fans love this one (I know I do). So like I said, a matter of perspective. If you love it, it shouldn't matter what others think.

    do you really need a "professional" reviewer to tell you if a game is good when you have a flashcart?
