100 Classic Books 


I am really not sure if 100 Classic Books is a game or not. It is on a Nintendo DS cartridge, but to me it is not really a game. It is the natural growth of this hand held machine to something more. I am absolutely astounded that Nintendo could put this many classics on one cartridge. Books like A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, The Time Machine and many more are included. Our friends over at Nintendo were gracious enough to send us a reviewable copy.

Nintendo has stepped up their presentation, and lets you pick various themes in 100 Classic Books. I found the text to be easy on the eyes. I ran into no vision issues with prolonged reading on my Nintendo DSi. 100 Classic Books made me feel like I was reading a book, and saving a lot of space. Technology like 100 Classic Books makes us completely rethink our lives.

100 Classic Books has various different sound tracks that can be played while reading. My personal favorite was no music. That way nothing interfered with my reading pleasure. Others here at Family Friendly Gaming wanted forest or ocean sounds. The train sound track is a nice touch. The special effect sounds will be familiar to anyone who has played a recent game from Nintendo.

As if 100 books were not enough, Nintendo also allows gamers to download ten more books. How long does it take you to read 100 classic books? The answer to that question is how much replay value you will receive from 100 Classic Books. I can see this cartridge lasting for years.

The touch screen controls are very efficient in 100 Classic Books. The menus are hidden until you press in the right place. I did have an issue here or there with the page turning when I was trying to bring up a window. This was very easily correctable though. 100 Classic Books is a lot of fun. I like the idea of this game, and how it helps to educate.

I can see a future where cartridges like 100 Classic Books are recommended by teachers. How much money would you spend on a few classics? Twenty dollars for 100 Classic Books is really good. 100 Classic Books has me thinking that a Holy Bible (multiple translations) with concordance could easily be developed for the Nintendo DS. I would be first in line for a sequel like that.
