The Nintendo DS game “ DaGeDar” is based on a toy that requires you to move a ball through loops and obstacles. The toy may be fun, but the video game lacks excitement. In fact, I would call it a boring and difficult activity.

In this uneventful game you control a little ball and race it across a track, trying to beat the computer's ball. (There is also multi-player action, which I have not tested.) A single mistake on the track leads to certain defeat. Also, your opponent will always find secret paths off the course that make its ball go faster.

This game is frustrating and even if you do manage to win a race, it is best of five so a single victory is not a total victory.  The game has 33 levels, but after dozens of races, I still couldn't access even the second level. It is addicting in a frustrating way, because with each tiny victory in a race, you think you'll win the round, but you don't. Eventually, you stop playing.

People who love the DaGeDar toy and don't mind trying for hours to beat the computer might enjoy this game, but I would not recommend it to anyone.
