Assassin's Creed : Altair's Chronicles DS star

DS Yoshi Touch and Go star
I love Yoshi! I remember playing Yoshi´s Story quite a bit. The Yoshi Touch and Go is a great little game for quick playing - but it really is too short.

Final Fantasy Fables - Chocobo Tales takes the intriguing world of Final Fantasy and turns it into a young kid friendly mixture of minigames and simple storyline.

Kirby Squeak Squad DS lets you take the deliciously fun shape-shifting pink guy on a platforming trek, storing and mixing up skill sets.

Lego Star Wars III 3DS star
Lego Star Wars III 3DS brings the fun of the lego series to the 3DS handheld platform. It's generally a good job, but the small screen is tough for this game.

Mario Kart DS star
I loved Mario Kart when it first came out on the SNES in the early 90s. I found the DS version to be just as fun - and far more portable!

NDS Bomberman star
Bomberman was always a basic arcade style game. The DS adds new life into it by allowing a single card to host up to 8 players in multiplaying fun.

NDS Pac Pix star
If you´ve got a DS and enjoy classic arcade style games, then be sure to give Pac Pix a try. You get to draw your very own pac-man and watch it gobble up ghosts!

Super Mario Brothers was one of my favorite games when it first came out. With New Super Mario Bros DS, you get the game fun gameplay - enhanced - in a nice portable system.

Pilotwings Resort 3DS star
Pilotwings Resort for the Nintendo 3DS lets you fly airplanes, jetpacks, and hangliders around an interesting island.

Sega Superstars Tennis DS star
Sega Superstars Tennis takes the full console version and brings it down to the smaller DS level. This is a challenge for the tennis part - but does quite nicely in the minigames area.

Spectrobes DS star
Spectrobes DS is a hand held RPG style game that involves collecting and fighting. Disney made this, and the graphics are rather impressive.

Spyro Shadow Legacy DS star
Spyro, the purple dragon, has been a favorite of mine since he first came out. Now he's flying, romping and bashing his way through a shadow realm.

Star Fox Command DS star
Star Fox Command DS brings the fun space combat world of Star Fox to your DS handheld. It's actually quite fun, strategizing your order of attack and spinning into action!

Steel Diver Nintendo 3DS star
I've been bringing my Nintendo 3DS with me everywhere to demonstrate it to family and friends. Without fail the game I help to demonstrate its abilities with is the Steel Diver submarine game.

Super Mario 64 DS star
The first great game for the Nintendo DS system is Super Mario 64 DS. This combines the great fun of Super Mario with the wireless play of the DS!

A direct sequel to "The Wind Waker" (a rarity for the Zelda series), Phantom Hourglass details the further adventures of Link in the flooded world of Hyrule.

Trace Memory DS Review star
Trace Memory is an interesting puzzle game that involves regaining memories and learning what they mean. It´s slightly tedious but generally fun.

Wario Master of Disguise DS star
I have really loved some Wario games in the past. I thought Twisted and Smooth Moves were simply brilliant. I have to say I felt a bit let down by Master of Disguise for several reasons.
