Games like these are hard to view objectively for what they are: kids games. Do children actually like doing the same thing over and over again? They do seem to enjoy watching the same episode of SpongeBob Squarepants over and over again. We should probably give youngsters some credit, and buy them a much better DS game. Parents looking to get kids some entertaining games should look towards New Super Mario Bros., Nintendogs, WarioWare Touched!, Elite Beat Agents or even Tetris DS. Hammy is merely average, but is made worse in the light of other games that its key demographic will enjoy. Their favorite talking animals this month may be in the latest Over the Hedge game, but games like Kirby: Canvas Curse or Yoshi's Island DS will keep them busy, especially when they realize that the gameplay in Hammy Goes Nuts! isn't any more fun than cleaning their room.
