Only for hardcore Majhong fans.
Call me cheap, but the E-Shop has plenty of Majhong games for a lot less(I'm talking less than $5). It might be ok, but it's still pretty much the same game. Just cubed and in 3d. maybe a few more features added, but I just like my basic Majhong games.
I am not much of a puzzle gamer, but I love Mahjong! My wife got me this for Christmas as a stocking stuffer...great idea and it was fun at first, but when you really get to playing it, it's kind of a let down. It would have been a whole lot better with the use of the stylus, but instead you control the cube movements and selections and everything with control pad...it's kinda slow & tedious to handle, and this especially sucks when you start getting timed. I think it's a good idea, but it would have functioned a lot better with the use of the stylus. I played this a few times and then traded it in toward a different 3DS game.
I love Mahjong just enough that I might get this.
I do love mahjong sooooo.... This will be good 4 me at least.
