  • Excerpt: The nintendo ds was bought for me by my grandmother. The nintendo ds was my choice because all my friends were getting them. When I first received the nintendo ds i was hooked and could not stop playing. What I quickly found out is the first game I had was finished within 2 hours tops. This was very quick since I know games are not that cheap. The other games I played were just as short and most are just simple mini games or just repeitive.

THE DS

  • Excerpt: This mini game cole is genius.  The touch screen is fairly durable and fun.  Nintendo does seem to mainly make games based for kids but that dosn't make it any less entertaining.  This system does however have exclusive game titles that are not on the WII such as some titles from the Mario and Metroid series.  The mini games that are available are adictive, just as Tetris was to the original nintendo game console.

  • Excerpt: Nintendo Ds can be an addictive and fun video game, however I find it difficult to find games that I like for the console. Pros: Once you find an entertaining game, the system can keep you occupied and entertained for hours upon hours.  Games like Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box/Curious Village, Zoo Tycoon and Toy Shop offer fun, offer some brain teasing fun.  Its definitely a unique game sysem.

  • Excerpt: I first got this device when i was about 13, as you can imagine it was a new peice of technology that can play games. First games were zoo tycoon,mario cart racer. Those two games alone are enough to keep you very occupied for easily two months. The charging time is pretty straight forward and not to long to get a good 5 hours of un interupted game play.

  • Excerpt: I was a little late onto the whole Nintendo DS bangdwagon; my copy here came from a used one on eBay when the DS Lite came out.  First off, this system is relatively hevy compared with the DS Lite and DSi that are by far the more popular versions.  However, unlike the very sophisticated DSi, this unit CAN play the older GBA games (The DS Lite can too), which is a definite deal-breaker for me.

  • Excerpt: I recieved the ninteno ds as a give for christmas from my husband. Really didn't want it i'm not much into video games. Tha't until he showed me that it has the touch screen games. I was very impressed with the variety of games i could play with a little stick, and with the  educational games like brain age it keeps me sharp. Without having to hold a controller in my hands.

  • Excerpt: The Nintendo DS. This little bad boy is ready to go where you are going. It's so fun to play and use the styles. It's not like any other hand held out there. Lots of game for the Nintendo DS so you do really have to worry about running out of options there are plenty. The double screens is the coolest thing and works out just fine.

  • Summary: The DS was a let down to me, since I wanted more 3D games, not just 2D stuff. The only 3D game I know of on DS is Super Mario DS. Everything else is pretty short and bring, just a bunch of stupid mini-games. I do apreciate the battery life, which is way better tha the PSP. However, Sony is making a PSP battery pack to extend the battery life of the PSP.
