I saw this listed in this week's Target ad for $15 and I liked Risk quite a bit at one time.  However a lot depends on how well the computer plays, and how it looks.

I can't find any information or reviews of this though so I am suspicious.  Anyone have an links to actual information?

I've been wondering the same thing as well (plus the other two releases for my seven year old daughter). Haven't been able to find a single thing online yet. Not even screenshots. I might break down after work today and pickup one of them as a trial (for only $15... not bad). I'll post feedback here if I do.

I'm very interested in some impressions of Risk.  It's a great game, especially if there's multiplayer.  They NEED to make a Risk game for DS with wireless play.  The system is almost made for that kind of thing!  Maybe even Risk 2210? *dreams*

Now I can't seem to find this game for sale in my two local "video game" stores (I haven't hit Target yet). Does this mean these games did really well and sold out already or just the opposite...

I'll keep looking

Managed to find ONE review of it online

http://www.insidepulse.com/articles/42150

The review itself sounds better than the overall score and it finally has some screen shots online. This is enough for me to buy it for my daughter. Now it's just a matter of finding it in the stores ;-)

The company that put that one out has a metric TON of different "two-packs" out now.  I went to Best Buy and it's like half the GBA section is devoted to these things.  I would gladly buy a cart with all or half their lineup represented, but getting them two at a time is a little weak.  The shame is that I really like the classic game packs on the GBA.  Also, the Ultimate Brain/Puzzle Games packs are a much better value.

There are 11 of them, you can check the list out here or my handy cut/paste job below.

Risk / BattleShip / Clue
Aggravation / Sorry / Scrabble Jr.
Trouble / Connect Four / Perfection
Gauntlet / Rampart
Klax / Marble Madness
PaperBoy / Rampage
Spy Hunter / Super Sprint
Board Games Classics
Millipede / Super Breakout / Lunar Lander
Asteroids / Pong / Yar's Revenge
Breakout / Centipede / Warlords

Finally found this game at Target (only $15!) and so far it's been worth it. The gameplay is smooth, the interface is decent, and the presentation is better than expected for the bargain price. Most importantly to me is that my daughter is really enjoying it (but I could see myself playing this one a fair share too).

If you were on the fence about buying it due to lack of reviews (as I was) then I would suggest picking it up. The questions I had for this title were answered in our first session of play.
