Customer Reviews:

  • Good game.
    Pretty good survival/horror game for the DS. Decent enough graphics for the DS. The control scheme took some time getting used to. My wife and I both enjoy it....more info
  • Creepy, but good....
    I have this game, and I like it. Great choice for Halloween. It's a bit creepy--the maw zombie, yikes!!--but interesting. The sound is great, and I use headphones when I play, so it won't creep anyone out. The heartbeat sound and monitor is a neat touch.

    I can find my way around pretty good, and I don't seem to have any trouble saving. It's a bit hard to fight, but I'm trying. Yes, it is dark, but if you play this with Action Replay, you can keep the lights on.

    Overall a good choice if you're looking for a good survival horror game. Just don't play it alone in the dark, or right before going to sleep-creepy!!! Yikes!!! :)...more info
    DEMENTIUM- The ward, is a good mix up for the ds and hopefully a start for a great genre of great fps games for the ds, the M rating was like a deep breath of freash high, in a repetitive life stile which is the ds, always butting out bad games that no one really plays. if you are a fan of fps and the ds, pick this game up!!...more info
  • Good (for the DS)
    I'm giving this game three and a half stars mainly because the save feature is a little frustrating. Rather than save where you are, you have to restart the whole chapter from the beginning! That is not good. However, the graphics and sound are really good (for the DS). It is pretty scary in that zombies tend to surprise you when you least expect it. Sometimes, you can see them wandering the halls of the ward, so you can prepare. I really hate those little wormy things crawling after you, screaching. Ick! The controls mirror that of Metroid Prime: Hunters where you aim and select with the stylus and move with the D-pad. It's a little cumbersome, but not impossible. Overall, it's a pretty solid game. I just wish the save feature was a little better, but if you're a fan of the survival horror genre you should pick it up. ...more info
  • Great Game
    First off, this game is great. I bought it with some misgivings because of the save feature after reading the reviews on Amazon and I am glad I did. I am a huge fan of the Resident Evil series (I own all for gamecube and the one for DS) and this game is so much more. It has a darker tone than the RE series. Both me and my son jumped when the first undead(?) character jumped out at us and it takes alot to make us do that.

    The graphics are great for the DS screen and the controls are good. I don't know yet how easy it will be to aim a gun with the touch screen but moving around is fairly easy.

    I have had no problems with saving my game where ever I'm at. I touch quit, touch save and quit, and my game restarts in the exact same spot I last saved at. Additionally, I don't see a problem with having to replay a room. I personally wouldn't stop playing in the middle of a room.

    Overall, I am very happy I purchased this game and I would definately recommend this to others and tell them not to be too concerned with the negative comments on the save feature.

  • Fun, creepy, frustrating
    I do enjoy this game, the music is the best part. It is a bit frustrating with using the stylus pen and you also cannot jump. Its a fun game and its easy to use once you play it a few times. I dont know who id recommend this game too. It does seem like a game that has been released before....more info
  • Fun, but yet not satisfying.
    I was looking for another "scary" game for the DS. I bought this game after reading the reviews because it looked like a good game and I was very excited after receiving it in the mail.

    So I start playing the game...the start is very simple, choose a heart..the left or the right to store your game data. There's no extras, no information about anything else. Next thing I know, I'm playing this character who I know nothing about and I'm learning the controls and now I'm wandering in some hospital of some sort.

    That's what bothered me, the game had absolutely no storyline presented at the beginning, and I understand that you play and find out whats going on...and I did, yet I still think the storyline was not well developed at all.

    Now, if you don't care for story in a game and just enjoy shooting stuff, then I'm sure you'll love the game.

    But in my opinion, the game was poorly developed when it came to the storyline. Also they could have added more than two DIFFERENT bosses (not including the last one), add more difficulty to the bosses, and add more different enemies.

    What I did enjoy was the music and the ease of the controls.

    I'd say rent the game, don't bother buying it. After all it'll take 6 hours MAX to pass it.

  • surprisingly good
    This game was one of the main reasons i got a DS, but when the time came to actually get it i was hesitant. how good can survival horror be done with the power of N64 in this day and age? pretty well actually. this game doesnt set quite as strong of an atmosphere as its console relatives like FEAR, but theres plenty of "holy s---!" kind of moments and twisted looking places to explore.

    Gameplay - similar to Doom 3 in that you can only see about 3 feet infront of you without a flashlight due to extreme darkness. you use the touch screen to turn, switch weapons, and look at your inventory/notebook/map. you walk with the directional buttons and shoot/turn off your flashlight with L. there's some other control schemes but that one works for me. there's also one set up for the left-handed. all the controls work really well. precise aiming can take some getting used to but after an hour or so its no problem.

    Graphics - wow! this is deffinitely one of the best looking games on the DS. pitch black corridors and some of the best textures on the system produce a tense atmosphere. if this game wouldlve been released on the 64 it would've turned the survival horror genre upside down.

    Sound - dark, brooding organ sounds behind mournful piano most of the time, and that does a good job contributing to the overall atmosphere. i wish the sound effects of the guns were a little better though.

    Story - somewhat nonexistant for a while, but once it picks up theres some interesting twists and revelations. it starts out, you wake up in a seemingly abandoned hospital. theres blood everywhere. you dont know who you are or where you're at, but it doesnt take long to realize your not alone.

    overall 8/10

    - everyone whining about the save feature.. just keep an eye on your health. if it gets to 1 just turn the game off then back on. it saves as you enter each room, so if you dont actually let yourself die, its actually really convenient. that might be too tough though. you decide....more info
    Kinda new to the DS, and I LOVE THIS GAME!!! Freaky, spooky, good graphics, I like it. Reminds me of Silent Hill, but more fun......more info
  • Dementium: The Ward
    I do like this game except for the saving part which other reviewers have said about it. I am on the 6th chapter and have gotten to the boss many times and keep dying. Have started over so many times, it gets frustrating that you can't start off at the boss stage. You lose things that you collected and have to do it all over each time. If it wasnt for that part I would give it more stars. ...more info
