America's Next Top Model
Rating: E-10+ - Everyone 10+

Since both the DS and the Wii versions are priced the same - go for the Wii - more stuff, bigger pictures; but if you must carry this game in your pocket - it's a pretty good port - limited only be the size of the DS. The game is essentially a complete transfer from Wii to DS. There are fewer choices in each of the tasks. The environments are, as far as I could tell, the same. Same dialog. Same funny hand motions. Graphics are better on the Wii. For example, as a black model, whose only choice for foundation was Arctic Alabaster, the Wii seemed to blend it well - on the DS, it looked like a clown mask. Although you can pick characters with different skin tones, there is no accommodation for different types. Probably the best choice would be white and blond - boring!

I did object to the cattiness of the other models. Is this an accurate depiction of the profession?

Fun Factor: Pretty good
Female Factor: It's a woman's world
