My Review:

Logan and Adam were introduced to DaGeDar in August.  They've played a few times with the popular collectible ball bearings and raceway.  I received a preview cart for the DaGeDar Nintendo DS game and both boys were amped to get a taste of the game.

With a typical race time lasting three minutes, players battle to race their DaGeDar ball to the end of the raceway before their opponent.  Each DaGeDar has a special ability that helps during the race.  Each raceway has loops and drops, as well as obstacles that players must avoid.  There are a number of different raceways, to give variation.  Logan and Adam discuss and keep close watch over which DaGeDar they've unlocked and which they still need to obtain.  I'm not so sure girls will get into this game but, if my sons are any indicator, it will be a big hit with boys. 

I received preview cart for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products.  Your opinions and results may differ.
