  Very impressive, one clitch

Well first of all to kick this off, this is definitely the best hand-held console out there.

Now for the business, the DS Lite to start off with, is a lot lighter than the original which makes it nicer to carry around. Nintendo have also extended the stylus by a few millimetres which makes quite a difference, you'd be surprised. It also looks like a much nicer design, smooth and slick.

The only issue I have when you buy this DS Lite is that it doesn't come with the wrist strap like it did with the original. Me, personally feel that it's kind of a rip off that your expected to buy this separately when it should most definitely be included with the pack. So, all I've done is taken the wrist strap off my original and stuck it on my DS Lite (the original broke when the battery pack died). Some people might not think of it as a big deal that the wrist strap isn't in the pack but in a way it is. I mean think about it, if you misplaced your stylus on holiday (you'd use the replacement one that comes with it when you got back), then you could use the wrist strap (has a tap feature on it, able to use without damaging the touch screen). So if you look at it from this view then it's quite annoying.

Apart from that I'd say it's all good, Nintendo are probably going to be bringing out more classic games within this next year and they'll be mind blowing.

So don't miss out, and get one of these! - Patch15

For all those people who can't buy the DS for Christmas please wait as the games are very good and make good use of the DS capabilities. The build quality is solid and the DS is just the right size to fit in your hands. I have five excellent games for My DS which are as follows:

1. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
2. New Super Mario Bros
3. Mario Kart DS
4. Metroid Prime: Hunters
5. Super Mario 64 DS

My mum wants to get herself a DS and to play the Brain Training games there are games for people of all age groups to enjoy. I'm 30 and My mum is 60 what a great enjoyable machine the DS is. There are two more games I like the look of which are Advance Wars Dual Strike and Planet Puzzle League. The DS is more then worth the wait buy it you won't regret it

I believe it has a battery pack that you recharge using the included charging cable :)

  The hand held console thats leading the market

| | See all issueskid's reviews (17)

If you don't already own a DS this is a superb buy. The DS is currently leading the console wars, its outselling all other hand held and home systems and if that isn't enough to get you interested how about this...

The DS features stereo sound, a microphone to interact with games by blowing to help start a fire (Lost in blue) or blow away clouds (Yoshi touch and go), and even speech recognition (Brain training).

The DS features unique touch screen controls which game developers are taking full use of, for example performing operations (Trauma centre) or playing sudoku! The DS also features 2 screens which can be useful for playing on one screen while viewing a map or stats on the other screen.

So you already own a DS and don't think you need a DS lite? I once had the same view, that is until I held a DS lite, its lighter, has varying backlight settings which are much brighter than the DS or PSP. This time around the DS lite also features an improved stylus which is longer and thicker.

Once you play a DS lite you'll understand why you should buy it, if you own the old DS you'll see why you should upgrade! You'll then be left with a spare DS which can be used to link up with the WI-FI connection which will enable you to play against other players. Many games now even feature a 2 player mode with only 1 cartridge while the 2nd DS will download the multiplayer option.

What else could the DS possibly need you ask? Well it also features internet access to play against player's world wide on games such as Mario Kart and Animal Crossing. There are also download points in various shops where demos can be downloaded to test a game before you actually buy it, or even downloading new packages for your current games! Picross allows owners to download new puzzles to extend the games life.

Finally the future for the DS is also looking pretty good, with connection options to the Wii, the possibilities will be endless!
