Written on: 04/01/2011 by huder (4 reviews written)

Ds lites are amazing. The Range of games you can also purchase is truly brilliant. The screens have great graphics and should definitely be brought by you. i would reccomend the DS Lite for anyone aged four- one hundred. No matter how bad you think you are at electronic games this Ds Lite could change your life forever. Some games can be educational such as brain training or art acadamy so your child will still be learning something over the summer holidays. Buy the Ds Lite now for £100 or… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2009 by bountyhunter134 (1 review written)

The DS is smaller, has longer battery life and has new technology such as the touch screen but consoles such as the PSP have better and more features and have better graphics and sound quality. Also, the DS games range is too specific to a certain age range and therefore their games are sometimes unsuitable for an older age group. As well as the fact that the games that are suitable for the age group of the buyer are often not very expansive and therefore the buyer often gets bored of the game… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2009 by boncoh (27 reviews written)

Powerful 3D handheld console with a super accurate touch screen. It's very versital and you can play a very wide variety of games everything from Guitar Hero to Animal Crossing to the Legend of Zelda is at your finger tips wherever you go. The screens are very easy to clean. The console gives you that big console feeling no matter where you are. The battery life is pretty good and the screens are ultra bright. Also, you can get wifi on the lite from a pretty good range. I measured it off… Read Full Review

The Nintendo DS is easy to carry round. Good for all ages - i take it to work and ive had everyone playing it from 6 to 88.
The choice of games isn't the best - Sims 2 is completely different on the ds and is really boring because of it. But new and better games are coming out in the future. Overall it's really good fun… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2008

Nintendo has dominated the handheld market since the Game Boy and it's not really hard to see why; the actual games are fantastic. The PSP may have a multitude of features like MP3 and internet browsing, but if you actually want to play games, get the DS. I'm lucky enough to have both, but if I could only have one, it would definitely be the DS… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2008 by prettylucky (1 review written)

I was pressured into letting my 5 year old son have a go of my Nintendo DS Lite when I got it. I had to fight to get it back... so now he's got his own. I like to think it's improving his hand/eye coordination and like to ignore that he's in a hideous mood when we drag him away from it.

However, it's good to use for a reward/punishment/bribe too!… Read Full Review

My first game system, the Nintendo ds is way better than my expectations, the microphone and stylus make it a better experience, ds games have awesome 3D graphics, it takes dirt cheap game boy advance games too!Overall it's a really cool handheld system, the awesome pros balance out the tiny cons, I would recommend this system to a friend. That is, if all my friends didn't already own one! The touchscreen gets scratched up really easily, sometimes blowing into the mic is hard and gets spit all… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2008 by kerzy1993 (3 reviews written)

The fact that the DS has shown how Nintendo dominates the handheld gaming market says something about it, in that it's easy to play, and the touch screen minigames and the like are often fun, if not repetitive and a bit gimmicky. The Lite can surely only improve on its' success then, as the trend of releasing the same console in a smaller package has only seen success.
The Lite looks interesting enough, although the fact that when GBA cartridges are inserted they stick out. Aside from that… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/05/2008 by lorr (3 reviews written)

Touch screen eventually scratched. I did have a stick on screen saver at first but didn't replace it once it had worn. So don't make same mistake as me! After about 10 months of use a hinge broke, company did offer to repair it but I didn't want to be without fit or about a month (Saddo I am), but its still going strong 18 months later.
Great little console, Daughter has a psp but she prefers to play on my ninetendo. Wish there was more games available for us old codgers though… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/04/2008 by xfavouriteworstnightmarex (5 reviews written)

I may have only had my DS Lite for just over a week but I can't find any problems with it whatsoever. I believe some people have experienced problems with it and the big danger is if the stylus won't make contact with the screen, you can no longer play DS games on it but I don't expect this would happen. Overall, they're some amazing games available for this, just general fun games like Cake Mania, Nintendogs and Brain Age. But they're also many adventure games for a wider audience, such as… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/03/2008

The Nintendo DS Lite is pretty good. Not too expensive. Good for all ages, the whole family will love this. Easy to use, even for middle aged women! Not a confusing array of buttons like the PSP. Can't think of any yet, but may be the lack of buttons means that there is less ability to play complex games (may be!). Im glad I read the Nintendo DS lite reviews here and made a good choice… Read Full Review
