I bought this to give me something to do while waiting for my next job at work in my truck. The list of DS titles is really expansive and lots geared towards adults (puzzle games are really addictive and DS also has began to release M rated titles like GTA) the dual screens make for easy viewing and the button layout accomadates even medium size adult has rather well. Its amazing some of the better games and how much information they can fit on a single cartridge with cut scenes and hours of storyline gameplay. It fits easily in you trvel bag and ready to play at a moments notice subway,plane,bench,long car ride you name it and they battery life is really good to 4+hours of continus game play.Overall very good and couldnt ask for more in a portable game system.
Great device for the little one, good graphics. My son is 4 years old and he enjoys playing games like Diego, Color Crayola etc. It keeps me him happy and entertained for a bit.
Love everything. Just don't like how some games don't work. And battery dies fast. But otherwise everything came out good. Good idea to include screen protectors. Love how there are many games to choose from.
fun product, great for on the go, or for travel..not too many games for teens thats the only bad thing other then that great product!
this is a great product. looks nice and works well. it occasionally locks up and/or restarts... this is typical of a nintendo product, as dust accumulation on the right pins (of the cartridge) is the usual cause. a quick blow out before gaming will normally ensure smooth operation.
the one i bought was well worth the money, being a factory refurb. works well, loads of fun, and works for a few hours off a single charge. great for in the car, at home, or at work (on breaks of course hah)
The first one arrived DOA, but customer service was responsive and friendly. They got me a different one no problem. The left shoulder button sticks sometimes, but its not a horribly big issue. Good product for the price.
Just got back from a trip to my DS I ordered a while back. Just leaving the review now.
The product came fully charged, with charger in the box which was nice to immediately hop into playing my new game I got.
It has some scratches, but generally the appearance looks good.
The only problem I have with the product I recieved was the upper-part of the DS (screen) has seem to have lost its support. It tends to flops and won't stay stable, which isn't an issue for me because I can adapt to it, but might bother other people.
I really liked the ds and price. I did not like the fact that all the games came on one disk. I bought this for my almost fove year old and he can't read yet so this is going to make it difficult for him to get to the games he wants to play.
The color (the kids wanted blue), the ease with which games can be swapped, the graphics, the compactness, the ability to charge the DS riding in the car and the fun my children have playing this DS make it well worth it.
