5.0 out of 5 stars DS, 7 May 2005
This review is from: Nintendo DS Handheld Console (Silver) (Video Game)
This thing shouldn't be compared to the PSP... It shouldn't even be compared to the SP... Comparisons are pointless, they are all very different! It doesn't feel tacky or cheap like I read. You don't really know what to expect with this when you buy it...
Pros: Some good games that use the DS' innovations very well
Good for people with big hands
Bigger screens than the SP and they are both back light, not side light
stylus has been well designed and is comfortable
The speakers work well and do well to produce surround sound quality
Cons: letterbox GBA games and no multi player - GBA function was obviously put in later so it would appeal to more people
The actual funtions of the DS aren't too useful. Pictochat isn't doesn't really have a point
Doesn't look as good as the SP
Could have been smaller... I'm sure Nintendo will do a Game Boy Advance on us and release a smaller one
Some really rubbish games
Even so, it is a really smart piece of kit... I already have a few games. My game combos would be:
Mario 64 Ds and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Zoo keeper and Yoshi's Island
Yoshi's Touck 'n' Go and Advance Wars 2
