Having played both versions, its safe to say that the DS version is much better. I first wanted to play the Wii version because of its innovative DS connectivity. But the capability is for one short session in the game. The innovation wore off quickly. Using your stylus in the DS version is more intuitive. You can use it as you would when writing with a pen. Its very awkward in the Wii version to use the wiimote as a pen. You end up writing big letters in "missing letters game." I really liked the multiplayer capability of this game. So I gave it a 6.
