The Nintendo DS Handheld Video Game System Review
The Nintendo DS is the latest gaming toy from Nintendo. It's a handheld powerhouse with tons of new features like two screens, wireless chat and more features that are listed right here. But how does this snazzy new video game gadget stack up when you actually get your hands on one and play a few games? Here's the thumb-twiddling scoop from Gary.
Your First Game on the Nintendo DS Handheld SystemAs soon as you grab a Nintendo DS you'll find out that it's a big system. Too big for most pockets and, if you have small hands, you could be in trouble when you try to use the stylus for the touch screen. But, with games like Metroid Prime, you can fiddle with the controls to set it up any way you want, even for left-handers!
Kickin' Digital Butt on the Nintendo DS Handheld SystemFirst, the wireless chat range is great, even better than the 100 feet Nintendo talks about. It'll even go through walls without much trouble. Second, you can play your older GBA games on it, but with better graphics. The two screens and stylus will confuse the heck out of you for your first few games, but it's not that hard to get used to. The biggest bummer is that the first few games you can play on the Nintendo DS are a bit weak, mostly 'cuz game designers are still trying to figure out what to do with the two-screen thing. But, there are still some awesome games to play, just keep your eyes on Kidzworld for game reviews!
Bottom Line on the Nintendo DS Game SystemIt's big, a little clunky and the first few games are a bit weak. But, the Nintendo DS is a good system and it's just going to get better. Getting one now is a bit iffy, but it will be da bomb by the end of 2005.
