When we say that this is just like the DS version, we mean exactly like the DS version. Only it’s worse, so not exactly like it. It’s got the same 100 puzzles and the same minigames (there’s an extra one here, but it’s not much cop). If you bought the DS game, you’ve no reason to get this if you’re looking for fresh conundrums.
If you don’t own the DS version but still fancy trying some of Prof Wolff’s ‘place objects around a level and then watch gravity guide a ball to the exit’ challenges, then, er, get the DS version. On Wii, the pointer controls make item-placement staggeringly frustrating, and when the ‘realistic’ (ha!) gravity means objects fall over at the slightest nudge, even steady hands will give up on this before long. And what’s with the tiny on-screen text? It’s like reading through the wrong end of a pair of binoculars.
