I bought this expecting 12 games, as that's what it says on the cover, so I'm not terribly upset that it doesn't have more. I haven't had any problems with the controls. The games are simple and don't have a lot of annoying "features" like animations that game designers throw in to try to make board games more fun (which get old quick). Some of the backgrounds can be distracting, but you can change them. I've had this for almost a year now, and I still play the sodoku for 5 or 6 hours a week.
I think I figured out the 20 game vs. 12 game issue. The PS2 version that came out in 2006 had 20 games on it including some of the ones people were complaining about not having like Go, Mancala and Concentration.
Some of the controls are kind of bad, I kept dropping things in the wrong places too. But it is something different to play that is simple and easy paced.
As others have pointed out, the disc does not include all the games the description claims. I liked the game disc but if I had bought it believing all the games it claims to include were on the disc I would be demanding my money back.
