Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Nintendo DS is no ordinary console. What on the face of it appears to be merely an upgraded Game Boy Advance is packed with a suite of never-before-seen features which make it unique within the gaming world.

The most obvious new feature is the two screens (DS stands for dual screen), the bottom of which is a touch screen. This makes an enormous difference to the way you play and interact with the game, as you use a stylus or the handy thumb strap to control the action.

The way this works in a game varies enormously, with first person shooter Metroid Prime: Hunters using the touch screen and D-pad to create a control system that’s just as responsive as a PC keyboard and mouse. Other games, like Yoshi’s Touch & Go, have you actually drawing on the touch pad to create platforms, while other games use the extra screen to display inventory or map info.

But there’s more to the DS than even that. It also has a built-in microphone (one new medical game has you operating on patients with the touch screen and reassuring them everything’s going to be okay via the microphone) and it can be connected wirelessly to sixteen or more other consoles. Not only that but some games and utilities even allow it to connect online via Wi-Fi.

Although the DS is far more powerful than the GBA – it can display 3D graphics somewhere between a Nintendo 64 and the GameCube--it is still backwards compatible, so you can play all your old GBA games in single player mode on the same console.

With a battery life of between 6 and 10 hours the Nintendo DS gets pretty much everything right. With a range of games that seem to offer far more originality and imagination than any other home or portable console this is could well be the most exciting new console of 2005. --David Jenkins

5.0 out of 5 stars Steph's reveiw of Nintendo DS 2 Jun 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nintendo DS is a new way to play and talk in 1. It is also a hand held console which makes it portable. It is extremely popular across the world and is selling rapidly.Would you buy a Nintendo DS?. Many children use it more than the Nintendo Wii and the PSP which is a great point for buying one. If i was you i would recoment this game console to a friend or even family. If i recived a Nintendo DS i would always look after it and talk to all my friends and play on the games. The Nintendo DS Lite is the newer version of the Nintendo DS which gives you the same quality but a brighter screen and gives you 20 feet smaller in the distance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Advice when buying second hand DSs 24 Aug 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The actual console is great fun! You cant fault it at all for it functionality. Depending on the games you play you can use every imaginable control ie blowing, rubbing, closing the console and re-opening it, in order to play the games. In some cases it even has a voice chat function on some games which can be quite fun too.

However, a word of warning about buying the console second-hand! It seems that the software to configure the touchscreen will eventually stop working. As such it can be very inaccurate and very annoying when everything you do has to be translated across the touchscreen by an inch. It will still function ok other than this though.
Even the battery life seems to stay relatively long; and even when it starts to fail replacement batteries are available.

So all round a good console with plenty of games available. However if it is not stated in the seller's description of the console, for example, "slightly worn" make sure to quiz them further on it to avoid the disappointment I had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brill 29 Dec 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got my DS last Christmas and I had the most fun in the whole entire world. I also got the acsessory set with it. Unfortunately the bottom screen (touch screen) went a bit weird and I have been unable to fix it. Now I am only able to play GBA games on it. but I still have fun on them even though I was looking so forward to playing on it like forever.

I would recommend this to everyone, young or older and look after the touch screen!!
