Nintendo DS review


Can Nintendo keep its handheld stranglehold?

Portability ; Battery life ; Excellent catalogue of innovative games

Graphics performance ; User interface (post iPhone) ; Display size and shape

Despite the oddball interface, it is simply enormous fun, filled with genuine possibility, and thus is far more the thinking gamer's handheld than the multi-talented high-brow PSP can ever hope to be.

Although it can be enjoyed by children playing alone it's also great for friends to play with together

Six months later my daughter doesn't play with it that often

It's great that these have the wireless connection so that you can play against other NintendoDS owners without any cable connection getting in the way. Also, on some game titles, only one player needs to have the actual game, while others who are...

Not exactly a 'Bad point' but the DS game cards are rather small and quite easy to misplace (you know what kids are like)
