Our Personal Nintendo 3ds Review

This article is an honest Nintendo 3DS review. The Nintendo 3DS system is almost a carbon copy of the Nintendo DS Lite, DSi, and DS XL as far as the exterior design. One big difference is the analog slider that moves with extreme precision.  You cannot use the slider with older game boy or game boy advanced games.

The resolution is very nice for a portable at 800 x 240 pixels. The best viewing and gaming distance is about one foot from your face and a perfectly flat in perspective to your eyes. You can use the slider to reduce or increase the 3D effect.  The 3D does not affect game play but it greatly improves the graphics. You also do not need glasses to use the Nintendo 3DS system.

The battery life was decent at three to three and a half hours with WiFi turned on. Turning it off will allow for another thirty minutes or so. The battery life for regular DS games is around six hours with WiFi disabled. The system still has two speakers at the top and the volume can be increased more than previous Nintendo models. Storage can be increased via an SD card slot on the left of the system. The Nintendo 3DS comes with two gigabytes of storage. The 3DS has three cameras. The picture quality is pretty low, but 3D picture taking is pretty cool. It also includes some fairly interesting effects that can be done with picture taking, but nothing ground breaking.

Here are a couple of our favorite games so far.  The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time was already an amazing game but when adding in 3D effects it made it that much more interesting.  It has a new feature of first person mode and you can use the circle pad to look around. Once defeating each boss you can review the fight and go back and try and beat your best time.

Our other favorite game so far is Nintendogs Lab and friends. This game is simply a blast for all ages.  You get to pick out your puppy and develop it into what kind of dog you like. Tricks can be taught with your own personalized voice commands and there are over one hundred different items for your dog to play with. Training points are earned by simply petting your dog. The more points earned will get you more dogs and items for your pet.

Our overall Nintendo 3DS review results in a four out of five stars. This system will certainly be enjoyable for all ages.
