 More of a gimmick then console

| | See all jkdarlow's reviews (1)

honestly i was excited about it when it was announced, but i found the 3d to be poor, the aqua blue one look horrible with the top half being black, the power button is terribly placed and there is little reason for a wifi switch on the side, personally i would wait for a large price reduction and some time for some actual 'good' games to come out rather than things like nintendogs and ports of already released games.

 Truly the way to go

I got my 3DS today and was blown away with it. straight out the box and it was working (had a 20% charge) It had the stylus pre inserted along with the SD memory card. After the setup you are introduced to the 3D screen, This is amazing and works very well. (downside is that is has limited viewing angles) You need to do a software update as well but this only took a few minuets. It has some pre installed games with it. I have only played the games with the cards! This is also amazing that you have to view the cards with the cameras and then shoot at dragons! The quality is very nice and feels nice to hold. I purchased mine with Pilotwings witch is a fun and good way to get used to the 3D. I would recommend this to all fans of handhelds. I can not wait for Professor Layton in 3d to come out later this year. The 3DS is also backwards compatible with your DS games as well. The one think I do like about this is that it comes with a cradle to charge your 3DS. This is a nice touch as it allows me to just drop it in and let it charge.

 Mario Kart 7 was the game that made my family want a 3DS!

My six year old daughter, my partner and myself all have the original ds console one each and we also have the Nintendo Wii of which we have many games for between us on both systems. We are all big fans of the Mario Kart games and Mario Kart 7 on the 3DS is just as excellent as the other Mario Kart games but I must say we all find playing the game in 3d hurts our eyes after a while and thats one of the reasons why I'm only giving the 3DS Console 4 stars out of 5. The 3d effect is brilliant and it's a real shame that it strains my eyes after about 15 mins of play because after all this is one of the biggest selling points of having a 3DS hand held console. If you switch the 3d off then playing Mario Kart 7 the graphics are pretty much the same level as a Wii at the moment which good but the PlayStation Vita will have graphics that nearly match the power of the PS3! I've always said graphics don't make great games that it's the gameplay which really makes games fun to play. This will not bother me but I know some people like to have the console with the best graphics around so I thought I would point this out.
The battery life for the 3ds last about six hours max which is bad when compared to the ds lite which last up to around double the time maybe more. This is another reason for me not giving the 3ds a perfect score out of five overall.
There is free software which comes with the 3ds such as Mii Maker that uses the 3ds camera when making your Mii. I found by taking a photograph of myself that the likeness of my Mii looks even more like me then before on the Wii!
The Face Raiders is a really funny shooting game where you look around your room with the 3ds camera and shoot the flying objects which have your face on them.
If you are able to set your 3ds to the internet then, at the moment you can download Zelda: Four Swords for free in Nintendo eShop because it's the 25th Anniversary of this epic series of games.
AR Games: Augmented Reality is another fun piece of free software where you get to use your six AR Cards. First of all you use the card with the question mark on it which you lay down and take photogarphs of it from all angles. Then you get to play another strange shooting game which has some rather cool effects. The five other cards are Toon Link, Mario, Kirby, Pikmin and Samus of which I have photographed all of them running around on my cat! There is a lot more to this game which I have yet to explore.
I must say the Aqua Blue 3ds is a lovely colour and the metallic finish is super. As with all Nintendo products the build quality is solid and you feel safe knowing it will last a long time.
The only other 3DS game we have at the moment is Ridge Racer 3D which is a very good arcade style racer and don't forget that all your normal ds games can also be played on the 3ds too.

 game changer.

like many of the reviewers state below - this is a complete game changer. If you've read any criticisms just ignore them, this thing is unbelievable. and though the graphics are on par with say the PS2, games like Pro Evo Soccer look and feel more real than the most recent football games on the Xbox 360 due to the 3D depth. This system was badly needed to show people that 3D is here to stay this time - and those voices you can hear are the heads of MS and Sony screaming to get those 3D console games and 3D Blu-ray movies on the shelves, NOW!
