The Wizard of Oz is so dear to my heart and connected to my childhood in such a way that I was worried a video game might not be able to do it justice. However, when I popped in my copy and watched the opening screen where my four beloved characters (along with Toto) were dancing invitingly to "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," I immediately felt at ease. The magic that I experienced as a child was still intact and I felt like a giddy little kid all over again. I'll confess, it was a huge nostalgic moment. But more importantly, as I played on, I discovered that The Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road (YBR) was not only a solid title, but it also ignited a spark in me that recent DS titles failed to create."
