GameVortex writes: "First-person games are not exactly the Nintendo DS's bread and butter. However, there are a few noteworthy titles that bring the genre to the handheld with great success. The most obvious example is Metroid Prime: Hunters - the game that singlehandedly proved that it was possible to make a shooter work with touch-screen aiming. Other titles tried to imitate the success of Hunters, but most of them fell flat. Perhaps the game that came closest was 2007's Dementium: The Ward, a survival-horror title developed by Austin-based development house Renegade Kid. Moon is Renegade Kid's science-fiction themed sophomore effort, and it's a good one at that. Moon has its share of setbacks, but its killer presentation and immersive atmosphere make it a game that any DS-owning shooter fan should at least take a look at".
