Wiiloveit.com: I Heart Geeks - DS Review

"When I was a kid, I was really into those nifty marble tracks where you could set up your own little contraption and basically have fun for hours at a time. Call me easily amused, but when I discovered I could then use those same marbles to trigger a separate sequence of events -- like knocking over a string of dominoes -- the little scientist in me really started to come out. Pretty soon I would move on to balloon inflation experiments using baking soda, vinegar, and 2L pop bottles. Games like I Heart Geeks attempt to draw upon this appeal of satisfying experimentation, with the end result theoretically spurring you on further to tweak and re-apply what you learn. Have the developers managed to successfully translate this trial and error principle into a fun experience? Or does it fall short of pushing for that same level of motivation and constant curiousity?" -- Wiiloveit.com (I Heart Geeks, Nintendo DS) 53/100
