My Nintendo DS Reviews
I have the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DS Lite handheld games and am very happy with the purchase. My son and I play against each other regularly and it's fun, the other day I tried playing on the internet using my new WiFi connection and that was mixed. It took a while to find a game to play. The games I have are:
- The New Super Mario Bros. - Excelent game, great value
- Nintendogs (Retriever) - I bought this one because my son wanted a dog. He hasn't played it hardly at all and neither have I. Looks like too much work.
- Mario Cart DS - This is a fun game, but I wish there were more race tracks. One nice thing is you can play against a friend even if they don't have the cartridge.
- Metroid Prime: Hunters - Very good FPS with some puzzle solving. You play using the pen like a mouse and the + pad for movement. You can play against others over the internet. I tried it once was was totally outclassed by my opponent.
- Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble - Very fun game, perhaps the one I'm playing the most. Lots of puzzles and makes good use of the touch/dual screen.
- Tetris DS - Nothing special here. I don't know why I bought this one, I'm kinda sick of tetris.
- Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith - I was disappointed with this game. I bought it because you can play with a friend, but it turns out you can play only if they too have bought the game.
- Brain Age: Train your Brain in just Minutes a Day - Good value, as it also includes Sudoku. I play this one almost every day.
- Big Brain Academy - I'd skip this one, sure it has some fun puzzles, but your guide looks like a penis and the music is annoying.
