Nintendo Life writes: "It's difficult to recommend Silver Star Reversi wholeheartedly, however its core gameplay and frugal price make it difficult to dismiss. When a video game reviewer is judging a less-than-thrilling adaption of a classic board game, they will invariably suggest that the gamer simply go out and buy a physical copy. Aside from the logical fallacy (if they're a fan of the original board game, then they probably already own a copy and are enquiring about this particular adaption!), it's actually probably cheaper to buy Silver Star Reversi rather than a decent copy of the board game. Both offer the same positive attributes: make of that what you will".
