I haven't bought the WiiWare version yet but i probably will over this, just for the multiplayer.

It looks awfully small, and the lack of online or multiplayer makes it worse than the WiiWare version, but at least we know EXACTLY what we're going to be getting here.



WiiGuy said:

Well, i bought the WiiWare version...so i don't totaly need this.
so, i think this is a no buy for me



IAmNotWill said:

I was thinking about buying the Wiiware version but I'll just buy this because its 3 bucks cheaper.

I'm not that fond of Dr. Mario, so I won't be wasting my time on this. It doesn't even have multi-player.

I have the Wii version and I'll be getting the DSi version. Awesome game.

Come on, Nintendo, DS download mode for multiplayer on a classic DS? I guess Ninendo is too afraid that people will cheat and/or hack and/or pirate the game - boo on you!

Still, the fanboy in me is screaming "buy me now!" By the way, I am missing my 9:30 class right now, oh noes! :O

Yeah, there's not as many modes as the Wii version, but it still remains faithful to the NES original - still a great distraction for only 500 DSi points, although if you want a game with a lot of depth, get Aquite. Still though, even games like Birds & Beans prove that games don't need a lot of depth to be good ;)

Just don't overdose on those pills. I think I did that when I first got it for Wiiware and I played until my eyes glazed over...

Sadly I'm not any good at Dr. Mario games. I did get the Wii Ware version however, it was my first Wii Ware game. I think it's still my only one. :O
Anyway; I might have to pass on this, just because I'm not any good at the game. Still, Dr. Mario is pretty awesome!
If only this were multiplayer... Oh well. It's fine by me.

This game is so addicting... I just wish you could play 2 player or play online. I hope asphalt 4 comes out on DSiWare. Its really fun for the iPod.
