Came in great shape, worked properly after being played for almost 3 hours straight, after recieving it. Also came with charger and 4 games, for the price it could not be beat. Plus it was the zelda gold special edition. My kids have begged me since before christmas for one, but as a single mom I cannot afford two brand new ones. I searched high and low until I found two worth the price right on here on ebay.
I bought this because I lost my old DS, and I specifically chose this one because it's supposed to be Legend of Zelda edition, which it actually isn't. I knew it was used, but it came in impeccable condition. Not a scratch or scuff on the thing.
The only problem I have, is that upon receiving the item, I noticed that it isn't an authentic Phantom Hourglass edition DS. The Triforce is not gold, but a muddy brown color, which shows it is a bootleg/counterfeit whatever. That fact doesn't bother me, except that I paid $60 for something that isn't exactly what I paid for. I could spend far less on a regular gold DS and put an unconvincing brown Triforce decal on it myself.
The buttons (specifically L & R) are sticky, as if they don't fit quite right, and it does, in fact, interfere with gameplay.
I bouught this for my 7 year old son. He loves it and won't put it down! He even played with the drawing portion before he even had a game to use on it. The only thing that is bad on it is, the hinges break easily and it is rendered useless.
