I’ve bought a number of DS games over the last few months and decided to share my thoughts on them here. The games are New Super Mario Bros., Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old is Your Brain?, Metroid Prime: Hunters, and Tetris DS.
Here’s a photo mosiac of the game cases:
All the these games are well worth your time. Here are some quick thoughts:
- New Super Mario Bros. doesn’t really offer much new compared to the other 2D Mario games, but is enjoyable none-the-less.
- Brain Training stands out as something different and definitely has much broader appeal compared to the other titles.
- Metroid Prime Hunters is far better than the brief demo that came with first generation Nintendo DS units, but still has control issues and feels limited at times.
- Tetris DS is fairly bland offline, but really shines when playing online against human competitors.
