jjwet35apc commented on Review: Stratego: Next Edition (DSiWare):

There's an error in the review. There is no DS download play. It says specifically in the help section within the game itself that each DS must have its own software loaded for multiplayer. In other words, to play against a friend, each of you will need your own copy of the game, contrary to what is said in this review. I bought this hoping to play with my friend (who has only a DS Lite, and cannot download DSiWare), and is also a big fan of stratego. I bought this game for the DS download play based on this review, but unfortunately, its not possible. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I knew it didn't have DS download play. Hopefully the review will be corrected as this is a relatively new release, so others won't make the same mistake as I did.

@Beta

its an arcade game, so you can put as many 'quarters' as you want; just like all the other arcade virtual console games. the best way to play it is probably to think about how much money you would have had in your wallet (for example $5, or 20 quarters), and make that your limit for any one session. that's probably the best way to approach any arcade game on virtual console, or even mame.

'The arcade version of Ghosts 'n Goblins is almost identical to the NES game'

you mean the NES version is almost identical to the arcade version, since the arcade version was first. its not bad though, i've actually seen a review on another site that claimed this arcade version was a port of the NES version, which is laughable.

in any case, i realize that arcades have been gone for more than a decade (at least in the US, not in asia), but many games in the nes generation of games were inferior ports of arcade games. many games back then started development in arcades first, and were an afterthought on the weaker home consoles.

while i agree that the nes port of this game is the most famous port, obviously this arcade game is the definitive version. so i would say that if you were to buy one version of the game, get this superior version, and stay away from the nes version.
