Written on: 02/01/2009 by reckoner (1 review written)

Altogether a great handheld console which has games with depth, substance and inventiveness. You can play old arcade games such as those on Konami classics ( Graduis, Gryzor, Ye yar kung foo, Scramble ), all tastes catered for great graphics and most importantly great gameplay. A great handheld console which has something to offer everyone in the family. Hard to think of any other than they have not bought the license for Kula world which is a fantastic game as well as Rollcage both sega games… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/11/2008

I really think the ds is a good hand held game as it is has a slimline screen good graphics and are very interactive. People would learn a lot from games like big brain training and dr kauswashi. Also games like nintendogs are like you are in a virtual world so if you are not aloud a pet then you could have eight virtual ones who you can take everywhere and are no mess… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/11/2008 by jessuk (1 review written)

For kids the DS is ideal it is easy to use and very tough to break if dropped. the games are easy enough for kids to I know they are bringing out games such as gta now but I can't see how you could really get into something like that on the DS as the game itself is huge since I have it on the xbox360 and previously on the playstation2 which were both great (massive thumbs up). DS is a novelty don ' t expect too much or you will be disappointed if your after a little disposable gadget a you plan… Read Full Review

Its a cool handheld console and it offers a lot of games that are way more fun than the psp and the online is better.
The graphics is not all that is pretty much everything the psp has to brag about.

Written on: 22/03/2008 by monicakershaw (1 review written)

Nintendo DS Lite certainly lives up to it's rep. It is one console that always seems to catch the eye when going on a games hunt. It is light and compact and easy to carry around. many accessories are available and the console itself comes in a good variety of colours.
The screen is easy on the eyes and you even have the option to change the brightness, which is something most hand held consoles lack. It operates with two screens, a top and lower screen. Both in use while playing. The bottom… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2008

The Nintendo DS is definitely a must buy, the little games console is much cheaper than the PSP and in my opinion so much better. It offers much more entertaining games in my opinion, the graphics are not that much different especially when considering the price difference. I personally would recommend a DS over a PSP anyway anyway… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/10/2007 by jarnartharn (37 reviews written)

I purchased this online as I was bored! No other reason. I wasn't expecting anything special but am now a DS addict. I love the way you interact with the games, the originality of it, it's great.The only problem I have encountered so far is that the touch screen has gone out of sync and will not re-calibrate. But luckily, have a look at an auction site and you'll pick up the replacement parts for a very reasonable price and some sellers even throw in the tools and instructions for free. I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/10/2007 by beefheart (1 review written)

I bought the DS on launch day and have been pleased with it ever since. While it lacks the powerful graphics of the Sony PSP it makes up for this with a totally innovative gameplay experience. From the first time using the touch-screen, controlling games becomes second-nature and you need hardly read the instruction manuals at all. Using the wi-fi multiplayer adds greater depth to the console, and setting up a game takes just a matter of seconds. Overall the DS provides a totally rewarding… Read Full Review
