      The original Nintendo DS was a bulk, ugly but durable system. The Nintendo DS has had some other incarnations since its initial release and one of them is the Nintendo DS Lite which makes some substantial strides forward in terms of design in comparison to its predecessor.

      Now, while the original Nintendo DS was built like a tank and could take a beating, unfortunately, the Nintendo DS Lite, is not quite as durable and breaks more easily by comparison. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not going to crumble in your hands or anything like that, but unlike the original Nintendo DS, if you’re not that careful, you could easily have this thing break on you, and that isn’t very fun. Well, maybe not “easily” that’s exaggerating a bit, but if you’re not careful it is very possible for it to break. My little sister, who isn’t as careful as I am when


      it comes to electronics, accidentally broke her Nintendo DS Lite. She cracked it somehow which led to the hinge breaking and the two screens being separated from each other. Still, if you’re not too rowdy and you’re careful with your portable system, you should have no real problems. Now the Nintendo DS Lite does have some advantages over the original Nintendo DS. First of all, the design is much more pleasing to the eye. Like I said before, the original Nintendo DS was just butt ugly and I really hated the way it looked. I would feel embarrassed having such an ugly looking thing out in public, but the Nintendo DS Lite on the other hand looks slick, sleek and shiny. While I think the PlayStation Portable looks nicer, the Nintendo DS Lite in terms of looks is far superior to its predecessor. Another thing is that the Nintendo DS Lite has
      a back light that is far, FAR superior to that of the original Nintendo DS. You can go in the settings and adjust it to different levels of brightness, and it looks much better b y comparison. It almost made it difficult to go back and play the original Nintendo DS because of how much better the Nintendo DS Lite’s back light was by comparison. Now to some of you reading, you might think “It’s just a back light, it can’t possibly make that much of a difference” but you would be wrong, very wrong, as it makes a huge difference. Go on You Tube or something; watch a video or two of someone comparing and contrasting the original Nintendo DS’s back light to that of the Nintendo DS Lite. The difference is astounding and really makes playing on the Nintendo DS Lite far more enjoyable by comparison, well at least for ...

      me.

      I think it’s also important to mention the games. The games on this console are phenomenal. You have some great platforming games like Super Mario Bros. and you have great action games like the Castlevania series, and you have superb role playing games like Devil Survivor, Final Fantasy III and IV or Strange Journey, there’s good point and click adventure games like the Phoenix Wright series and many more. This console has some really fantastic games on it and this is doubly true with the Game Boy Advance backwards compatibility which essentially adds an entire library of games to the already huge library of games to the console. This makes the console well worth your time and money.

      Overall, this is basically the same as the original Nintendo DS, but better. Sure it isn’t as durable but if you’re careful with your belongings you should

      be fine. Now, one thing that really makes this one of the best versions of the DS to get is because of the Game Boy Advance slot. The Nintendo DSi and the Nintendo 3DS do not have a Game Boy Advance slot. Now if you don’t really care about playing any Game Boy Advance games (and if so shame on you) I would still recommend the Nintendo DS Lite more than the Nintendo DSi because it’s cheaper. Overall I give the Nintendo DS Lite a 9 out of a 10. This version of the Nintendo DS is great and is only really brought done a notch because it isn’t as durable as the original Nintendo DS. Trust me, if it was, then this would have gotten a perfect score no questions asked. The games on this console are great, they’re varied and I highly recommend you get this as it’s very much well worth your time.
