About as good a rendition of Shanghai as you could ask for on the NGPC with a seemingly endless variety of tile patterns, a surprisingly deep Tournament mode with amusing opponents, even a versus mode. The only real problem here, and maybe it isn't strictly a problem but I will complain about it regardless, is that there simply aren't enough colors to make it pleasant to distinguish between different tiles, particularly when you get to, say, the flower tiles that can be matched with any other flower, but you can't tell if something is supposed to be a flower or some kind of symbol (a wind or something for all I know) because they're both just miniscule black marks. A little higher resolution and more colors would have helped immensely, but they've done more than would have been expected with the colors they used.
