DaGeDar Coming to Nintendo DS - Review

 Have you heard? DaGeDar, the popular ball bearing racing game is now going to be available on Nintendo DS and DS Lite. If you aren't sure what DaGeDar is, please see my original DaGeDar Review where I shared all about these Ball Bearings from the 33rd Dimension. My kids all loved the original DaGeDar and they were thrilled to get to work with a demo of the new Nintendo DS Game.

The game consists of 30 different ramps and numerous DaGeDar online balls--including some new ones--that you can race. The springs and power-ups give you even more ways to speed along the track to the finish.

From the manufacturer:

Battle it out with your friends or race evil spirits alone; DaGeDar’s virtual raceway will keep you playing for hours. With more than 30 fast and furious raceways, you’ll be looping, dropping, climbing, and banking your way to the end with fury, but watch out for the blocks and gaps in the raceway!  Featuring 100 collectible balls and special, limited edition characters, you’ll have a blast collecting and trading your favorite DaGeDar items.  Whether playing alone or sharing with a friend using the game’s single card download option, the action-packed world of DaGeDar will keep you hungry for more racing, collecting and conquering of evil spirits in a unique 33rd dimension world. 
Additional DaGeDar game features:·         Collectibles: Unlock and collect up to 100 DaGeDar racing balls, for collectible and trading fun! Special limited edition, cool characters available too!
·         Unique Race Abilities: Each ball carries abilities of Acceleration, Top Speed, Defense and Attack modes.
·         Rewards: Earn DeGaDar points at the end of every race for special rewards and bonuses!

All three of my kids tried the demo game we received and all thought it was really cool. Since it was just a preview, they couldn't access the collectibles and couldn't unlock more tracks and levels. This really frustrated them because we have a highly competitive family. They all agreed that it was fun to have a way to take DaGeDar on the road and they really enjoyed playing it in the car on some car trips. 

From their commentary and my own (failing) attempts to play the game, we found that when we were at home, we'd rather play with the real DaGeDar ball bearings and race them down the ramps. Anytime we were away from home, the Nintendo DS DaGeDar game was a wonderful way to have the opportunity to play the game without taking the toys and gear with us. 

With the game being released just in time for the holidays, you might want to consider this for all your DaGeDar fans. 

Disclosure: I was allowed to use a preview copy of the game for a limited time in order to write this review. No other compensation was given for this post.
