paddle controller
Dial feels kinda loose... I read up other impressions and people on forums said that wheel is supposed to have some resistance to it. The one i have -- you can touch it and it goes spinning and spinning.

It still works great though. I prefer to hold with two fingers, but when i gave it to my friend he started to move it with just one finger and it worked for him just fine.

Game itself, well it's Arkanoid, pretty much the same game we played on NES. Same music, same gameplay. There was one weird thing about first levels though -- they don't take entire screen width which is weird considering already low resolution of DS. Hopefully it gets wider so that you can really use that dial.

Dial really make a difference for a game like this, now you can move your ship pretty much instantly across entire field AND still be very precise.

Price could be a bit lower for what it is.

paddle controller
a great way to enhance gamplay for games like Space Invaders Extreme, SIE2(which has a rank/multiplayer mode for paddle use whereas the orig. didnt), & mario kart ds(using ds Action replay). wish they made 1 for xbox 360

Play Arkanoid the retro way
Using the paddle to play Arkanoid is an excellent idea. Now we need more games that are compatible with this fun to use controller.

The paddle controller is a must!
Arkanoid on the DS with the paddle controller is the only way to play this game. The paddle itself plug's into the GBA slot on your DS. It is white in colour and has very good tactile feedback for your fingers. It is designed to work with both the DS Phat and DS Lite so on the lite it sticks out a little more but this does not affect the ergonomics and you can play it for a good length of time.

No title
Great game, with or without the paddle! The paddle though is definately the way to play this game. Unfortunately the paddle is no longer available and this bundle is the only way you can get it now (at least from here). And if you want to know what color it is, its white.

A lot of the updates are very good like the new game modes and multilayer (AI and humans), but some though could've used more work like the music and new additional changes to the gameplay to spice up the old formula.

The game is pretty import friendly as there are English in the menus, but there are also Japanese as well. Simply check online for an FAQ for the menu translation.
