For the person who loves crossword puzzles this is not a bad game. I had my wife sit down and play it because she is a crossword fanatic. After playing, her only criticism was that the game won't let you fill in an answer wrong which takes part of the fun out of doing a crossword puzzle. You can't go back and say "oh wait, that word I put there doesn't actually work." My criticism like so many other wii titles is the lack of using miis and a clunky profile system. For the crossword lover, this is a buy game and not a rent because of the replay-ability and different game modes. Overall, not exciting, but true to it's title. "Crosswords"
I rented this game thinking that it would be fun to play - needless to say, I was mistaken. Since I don't do crossword puzzles, I found this game to be extremely difficult even on the "easy" setting. While I'm sure that people who do crossword puzzles will find this a wonderful game, people who are not used to those types of puzzles will probably find this game quite frustrating.
