Bummer.

S()FIE, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Item was not described correctly. Minor scratches and regular wear was acceptable and described correctly. However in the description it stated the item was tested and working correctly. Upon receiving the item and doing the initial set up, I had to pay to unlock the parental controls since I had no idea what the current password was. After going through all that hassle and unlocking the device I was super disappointed to find out the wireless was not working at all.

  • Summary: The Nintendo was supposed to have the Fire Emblem game pre-installed and there was no game. Disappointed since it was a gift for my son to replace one that had been lost and he really wanted this.

  • Summary: I did not receive the charger for this game. How was I to recharge the game without a charger. When I tried to contact the seller, they deliberately ignored my complaint and to day I have yet to receive it. The game works okay, the only issue is the charger for the game.

It came fast but at a cost.

  • Summary: I order this a little after Christmas and it got here 4 days before it was due. It wasn't in a a box but it was in an envelope with bubble wrap. When I opened the package everything seemed fine but when I turned it on, I was disappointed to find the touch screen did not work at all. I tried turning it on and off, waiting for it to die and recharge it, and letting it turn on and sit for a while before I finally gave up.

Just Keep Using the Regular DS

Ashley, Amazon
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased a 3DS because of the Ocarina of Time Zelda game for 3DS. I did not enjoy the game play at all. Half the time you couldn't even tell it was 3D and when I played for long periods of time in 3D it hurt my eyes. I sold the unit about 6 months after I purchased it.

It's Not For Everyone

Thomas M. Bowling, Amazon
28 March 2011
  • Summary: I was seriously thinking about trading in my DSI XL for a 3DS. I wanted to try it out though before I made the swap and I'm glad I did. My friend, Lacy, let me try her 3DS. I played with it for about twenty minutes and found out I could not play it comfortably. I wear glasses with bifocals and had a lot of trouble just trying to focus on the screens. Towards the end of my play-test, I began to get a headache.

My biggest complaint is the fact my 3DS came without a SD card so my 3DS is basically USELESS until I get my SD card

  • Summary: Bought me a nintendo 3DS handheld from here. It's in tip top condition for a pre-owned and it the courier use is through the royal mail and not some laid back dodgey courier. So it is done quite professionally. However my complaint comes in when the DS arrived. The 3DS was missing the pen to use the motion touch area not to much of a problem but still a bit of a pet peeve.

  • Summary: The processor is used well and 3D elements makes the graphics appear even better. It really gives a sense of scale that is only matched by a bigger screen and much higher resolution. This is the main benefit of 3D - you do not get a true 3-dimensional view of the gamescape as has been claimed in some quarters but it's still worth having. The accelerometer is far too sensitive and also imprecise.
  • Pros: 3D improves the look of the simplistic graphics.
  • Cons: Slow processor, cheap accelerometer.
