The Best of the DS

From : "Last Friday, June 23rd saw the release, at long last, of the Nintendo DS Lite in Europe. Priced £99.99 and available in black and white colours, it's arguably the slickest, most fully formed handheld Nintendo's ever made - with virtually no drawbacks. That was certainly my view when I took it to pieces after a few days of ownership - and unusually the intervening weeks haven't offered any cause to revise the view. Console quirks typically become most apparent after a bit of sustained usage, but the DS Lite appears to be an exception.

In other words, it's a worthy purchase. But more than that, it's very probably an ideal time for some of you to pick up your very first DS, and with this in mind we've put together a guide to the very best games in the DS catalogue - with a few honourable mentions thrown in as well - based on our playing habits since the console's original release in the US in late 2004. This is by no means a top ten - think of it more as a best-of. And if you'd like to make a case for something not included, this is the place."
