Graphics Wireless play Innovative
Not enough good games released
Back in the early fall, I traded in my XBox to reserve my Nintendo DS. I was made fun off by my friends and co-workers when I did it too. When it did come out and I got it, I was amazed. The first thing I said when I opened up the package was: "beautiful" the DS is a very beautiful piece of hardware. Granted, the only game I bought for it when I got it was Super Mario 64 DS, and it is a very good game, but that is all I could get. Besides maybe Feel The Magic. Besides that, there wasn't much. I did play my Metroid Prime Hunters demo, but I didn't play it much until recently. OK! Now to the good points!
The graphics for a handheld are very good. Not as good as the PSP, but pretty close and the innovation with the system was the key. Dual Screens, one touch screen and wireless play. Not to mention the two important games that came out within the last month that showed off the dual/touch screen. WarioWare Touched and Yoshi Touch & Go. I am very happy I bought a DS and that I waited a couple months for the good games to come out. Even though the PSP is very cool, the DS is better in may opinion - and one more thing: Now that my criticizing friends have seen the DS and have played it, a few of them are trading in their XBox to get a DS too.
NOTE: I am not making fun of the XBox, it is just an example of how good the DS is compared to it. even though there are many good games for the XBox, I prefer my DS over the XBox.
