Jenga for the DS can only be described as clunky. The gameplay is tedious and chore-like, and only a few minutes in, you’ll already start to feel your spirit being sapped away. Atari wants all your mates’ money, too, and you’ll have to make sure you get a cart for everyone who wants to play with you. Playing against the AI isn’t even a viable fallback as those ‘players’ maneuver like pros while you flail about like an idiot. There’s only one word for this experience: wooden.
