Games like Age of Empires and Anno 1701 have shown that PC strategy games can not only work on the DS, but can make the switch from desktop to handheld with commendable success. Even the rather flimsy Sim City DS managed to offer something that at least worked as advertised. Settlers II is a great game. A classic. This version isn't. It's a travesty, and one that should never have been released. Without the fatal bugs it'd be a disappointing put passable conversion but you can't play a game not knowing when or if the game will actually work the way it's supposed to, or if saving your progress will cause it to crash. There's only one score for a game like this, and it ain't pretty: 1/10.
