A Christmas Carol 

 

I have liked A Christmas Carol for years. First off it occurs during my favorite time of year (editor: when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ). It also tells the truth of money does not bring happiness. Finally A Christmas Carol shows as long as we draw breath we can change our ways. I was very excited to hear Disney Interactive Studios was doing a Nintendo DS video game on A Christmas Carol. This is one of those video games that I had to review myself (sorry to all our wonderful reviewers).

There are a lot of darker tones used in A Christmas Carol on the Nintendo DS. There are enough colors in this hand held video game to contrast. The art work is fantastic, and fits the theme masterfully. If you are not familiar with the content of Charles Dickens classic book, let me tell you there are spirits/ghosts that are characters. They frighten Scrooge straight.

Disney Interactive Studios added a lot of nice little touches to the audio department of A Christmas Carol. The crackling of the fire, or meow of a cat are some examples. The ghost sounds can be eerie. Scrooge starts out greedy, selfish, and proud of these bad traits. In the end he learns charity, and love. The greatest of these is love.

A Christmas Carol has some really cool extras. First off there is DGamer. Then there are quite a few fun mini games that can be replayed (by up to four players).  Finally the entire book is included on this cartridge. As long as the player has a reading ability this is a really neat way to read this classic book. I feel that A Christmas Carol is worth the price of admission.

A Christmas Carol is a puzzle game that includes various mini games. Almost all of these are interesting, and fun. I found some of the puzzle screens can be difficult to figure out. Blowing into the microphone shows the player what all areas of the screen can be interacted with. Some need to be touched, while others need to be pulled. Finding the right combination is the key to A Christmas Carol. Of course knowing the storyline does not hurt either.

I am so thankful that Disney Interactive published A Christmas Carol. This is a fantastic product based on a wonderful story. I hope to see more classic novels being released as video games in the future. I will be recommending this game to family and friends. I think A Christmas Carol on the DS is a great way to get the book into the minds of the current generation.
