El33tonline Review: 100 Classic Book Collection

El33tonline writes:

"As the name suggests, 100 Classic Book Collection is not a game so much as a library. Even so, we review these things because they're on the DS which is, ostensibly a game-playing device, so if said device is used to run software it is automatically assumed to be fun.

It's hard to figure out just what to rate here. The books chosen are magnificent. Most of Austen, lots of Dickens, Eliot, multiple Bronte's, many Shakespeares. You couldn't get a much better selection of 100 books anywhere. But while the books are the reason for the software, what should be discussed is the software used to read the books – and just why would you use this software instead of buying the real thing – ink on paper? Reading a book on your DS is never going to be better than reading a shiny new book smelling like books do. It is, however, cheaper and far more portable. Particularly if the book in question is Les Miserables." (100 Classic Book Collection, Nintendo DS) 3/5
