The Nintendo DS handheld video game system is fun for all ages. It is very small, so it is perfect to take with you wherever you go. And even though it's small, it has great picture and graphics on it.
The consule has two screens, a simple control pad, and a stylus pen. The pen is used on some video games on the lower screen which is a touch screen. There is also a small microphone on the consule that is occasionally used for certain games as well.
I do find that the battery does not last all that long and if I play it for a while, I end up having to charge the battery almost every day.
I've had a lot of fun with this system and all of the games I've played on it. If you're used to some of the older video game systems, I find that this one takes a little bit of time to get used to, especially with the two screens. It's also a little weird using the stylus pen sometimes. But once you get into it, it's hard to put it down!
The sound and graphics are really terrific for such a small system. I continue to be impressed by those on each game that I play.
If you're looking for a great handheld game consule, I would definitely recommend the Nintendo DS!
