''Let me start this review by saying I'm a bona fide crossword geek! When I was a kid, I would help my grandmother fill out crosswords whenever she would come to visit, and my passion for word puzzles remains strong to this day. Needless to say, when I found out about Crosswords DS I was very interested. Despite my initial excitement, I was definitely a bit skeptical as to whether Nintendo could actually pull it off.''
