Some games just aren't good ideas. A game is first conceived in theory in mind and in document and then shown in presentation to an agent, producer, publisher, or whomever, and if that person has any sense, he will automatically know not to make...

Books and movies don't often translate into magnificent videogames, and Inkheart is no exception. This DS adventure will not be winning any GN Nodie Awards this year, yet still maintains a few redeeming qualities and will appeal to less experienced...

Not for veteran gamers. Truly engaging puzzle-solving and high quality presentation are absent from the game, but its accessible control style and somewhat interesting plot make it at least playable.

Movie-to-game adaptations have fared remarkably poorly over the years, largely because of the rushed timeline imposed to meet the film's release. On the other hand, adventure games featuring people with special abilities to create life with magical...

Interesting premise; nice background art and character portraits, complete with movie likenesses; pleasant music and solid sound effects; could be a nice adventure introduction to younger gamers

Over-simplified in every respect; plot feels rushed and loose ends neglected; a few poorly done, repetitive minigames; no voiceovers of any kind; way too short

Inkheart’s light pace and simple point-and-click gameplay may appeal to the kiddies, but most others will want to turn the page on this movie-based adventure.

Inkheart - DS Game Reviews - The Armchair Empire


I love playing classic video games. Nothing beats booting up an Amiga and putting a classic into the old 3.5” disk drive and being reminded of games gone by. It's strange however to have this feeling when loading up a Nintendo DS game that isn't a...

The image of Brendan Fraser looks like Brendan Fraser; It has the movie license; I?m stretching, can you tell

The graphics are poorly animated; The mini-games are more fun than the main game; The polish on this game is dull, dull, dull

Inkheart Review


Finally some company got it right. They made a Nintendo DS game based on a movie starring Brendan Fraser and they actually got his likeness in there. After those last two games I was afraid we were all doomed to never accurately see Mr. Fraser's mug on...

Look, I know reading isn't cool anymore, but getting your kid Inkheart on the DS is pretty much like getting them a book anyway. Only this book has really bad writing, and it makes readers do chores in between the chapters instead of just letting them...
