Summary: I bought this during the Black Friday sale. If you are looking for a cheap alternative to the 3DS and still like to play some GBA games from time to time, the DS Lite is for you. I personally bought this system so I could play the new Pokemon games, since I have been restricted to the first 3 generations. So far, the system is working perfectly. There are a few scratches on the screen and some wear on the outside, but I personally like that "rugged" look.
Summary: Okay, if you're looking for something to play while on the go, the Nintendo DS line is your best bet. Yes, you could go get a PSP, but Nintendo DS has a better library and more accessibility for those just getting into handheld gaming. Very user friendly and portable, what's better than that? Overall, I enjoy using my DS Lite, DSi and 3DS. A lot of the games are pretty good. The Nintendo DS Lite is a great investment and one of the best choices I have ever made.
Summary: Good, but my 5 + 6 year old broke 2 in less than a year. They need something more durable and they outgrew the Leapsters. I will buy another one though they keep my kids occupied in a car and we travel everywhere we go since we live in the country. Constantly lose the stylus's.
Summary: i liked the ds but but stuff is some games are bad but some games are good most games ive played sucks the atachment that hooks the screen will break unless you never play it over all i would requmend this if you like mario games
Summary: The first thing you need to know is that this system is old and outdated. The second thing you need to know is that the small group of people who will tell you not to buy the system are mostly PSP loyalists. Despite that, there only two real flaws in the system overall (that I can think of). The first is that the graphics are poor compared to other handheld systems right now, and that's due to the fact that it isn't compatible with memory cards.
Summary: my entire reason for buying the ds lite was to simply give it away to a friend, the large game library gave many options for picking out a game, its easy to find something for everybody when dealing with a ds. performance wise the charge will last you much longer then you expect, me being a psp owner i admired the battery life, touch screen and over all design.
