100 Classic Books (DS) - Review
28 July 2010
Excerpt: When the Nintendo DS first came out everyone was excited about the world of possibilities it opened up. Indeed, as time went by players saw some truly fascinating and innovative game titles that redefined the videogame experience. So far, however, the possibilities the DS could offer outside of the gaming universe haven’t been exploited.
Summary: 100 Classic Books transforms the Nintendo DS into a library of timeless literature, highlighted by 100 works from authors such as William Shakespeare, Jules Verne, Jane Austen, Mark Twain and more.
Summary: 100 Classic Books is one of the best ideas Nintendo has had in a while. While it is no Kindle killer, this cart is a great alternative to the more expensive e-readers out there, collecting some of the most famous works in the English language for a fraction of the price you would normally pay for their electronic or paper equivalents.
Summary: Parents need to know that the titles included in 100 Classic Books are all acclaimed, important books from literary history, but they vary greatly in terms of content. In this software, you'll find everything from Alice in Wonderland to War and Peace -- with all kinds of titles (and types of content) in between. There are bound to be some books that younger children aren't ready for, so parents should be aware of which books their kids are choosing to read.
Excerpt: Gaming and reading sometimes go hand in hand, in fact until the rise of the cinematic cut scene storylines were delivered via the written word. Times have changed however and reading (as a pass time) is less and less common as TV Movies and Games take over, but there are still those that enjoy a good read and Nintendo have released a title that might appeal to many of that type.
Excerpt: Bringing literature into the 21st century cheaply and cheerfully Believe it or not, before we had Television, Facebook and Wikipedia, some people would actually go to a public place called a “Library” in which thousands upon thousands of books were stored. People would find it enjoyable to physically turn each page and reading the sentences that an author has written, trying to conceptualise what is going on in their story.
Pros: Loads of books to read and more downloaded via wifi, Simple controls, Preferences making reading easier for individuals
Cons: Not that many books to choose from online, Text are large making extensive reading stressful
