"The D-pad on the Nintendo DS doesn't work well at all for this game. It's much like playing Super Mario 64 on DS with only the D-pad; precise movement in 3-D is basically thrown out the window. The in-game menus and stage selection allow you to use the touch screen but there isn't much else that takes advantage of it. The game is still just as bad as the Wii version only worse thanks to the watered-down graphics. Check out my full review of the Wii version if you want more specific details on the gameplay."
