Great little hand-held gaming system!

  • Excerpt: I asked my husband to buy the Nintendo DS for me for Christmas last year and he did. I love it. I'm more into the older games, but I have found that the new brain games are great. I like the idea that I can take it with me on trips, etc. I also like the fact that it's not big so that it's not in the way or anything like that.

hours of entertainment for kids

  • Excerpt: My daughter (8) loves this. Santa brought it last year as a Christmas gift and she is still entertained by it. The most common place for her use is at the lake at bedtime. Since she does not have to go to sleep early on weekends at the lake she can quietly play her game while we fall asleep. She does not even have many games (maybe 6) but it keeps her busy.

Excellent selection of games, but heavy to hold.

  • Excerpt: I have one of the original DS units and I love that it also plays the SP versions of games too.  There is an excellent selection of games from puzzles to adventures.  The unit is a little heavy and the thin stylus gets hard to hold.  So, marathon gaming on it is not fun.  Those are the only detriments and I would buy it again in a hot second!

  • Excerpt: I bought each of my kids one and each one loves it.  I enjoy the fact that games are made for all ages.  I even play it myself.  I like how some games can be somewhat interactive by using the stylis and some you don't need to use the stylis.  I have bought this for kids ages 11,5,3 and if you buy the games that match thier age groups they can play with no problem.  I chage each DS before long car trips and I also have the car charger just in case.

Nintendo DS is great for younger video gamers.

  • Excerpt: Absolutely fantastic for kids new to video games. The games are geared towards the younger kids so my 8 year old can have plenty of games to choose from without me worrying about violence. Great product.

  • Excerpt: I absolutely love the Nitendo DS, it has amazing games to play, especially with the convenient touch-screen. There are games for every type of player out there, everything from puzzles to action war games. I definitely give this game console a 7 out of 10, but suggest upgrading to the DS Lite.

A great portable gaming console

  • Excerpt: I’ve had my Nintendo DS for a few years now.  I have been very impressed with the innovative touch screen technology,  which responds extremely well.  Some games do not really utilize it, but it adds a unique gameplay experience to the ones that do. While the graphics for the DS may not be as visually impressive as those of the Sony PSP, I still prefer the DS because of the better selection of games.

I didn't touch it in a bad way.

  • Excerpt: The Nintendo Dual Screen (or DS) was the all the rage in busy 2004 holiday season. This new age device not only looks pretty sleek and well designed here but what really makes the DS a cool step forward in portable gaming is its unique second screen, its wireless multi-player support, Nintendo64-like 3D graphics engine (better then the older Gameboy Advance anyway), and who could forget the innovative touch screen features too?

Great gameplay

  • Excerpt: There are some real perks to a DS as compared to the original Game Boy, the Game Boy Color and the Game Boy Advance.  First of all, the colors are AMAZING.  They never cease to practically shine and they're like that for every game.  Even the old, regular Game Boy games that were not made specifically for this newer system.  Second of all, the sound is great.  It is much louder than it was on either the Game Boy Color or the Game Boy Advance.

  • Excerpt: When I first bought my new Nintendo DS, it had barely come out and when i bought it, i was really impressed with the quality of the games. The games are not so expensive and there are many varieties to choose from, so I would recomend this to anyone trying to find a cheap game consle to have games for the entire family.
