      My nephew got the Nintendo DS Lite for Christmas, and so I clocked in a few hours with the device as soon as he went to bed. I fired up Super Monkey Ball by SEGA, and off I went.

      The DS Lite is Nintendo’s latest portable gaming console, still in its classic clamshell design, featuring dual screens, the bottom of which is a touch screen which you control using an included stylus. There’s a directional pad to the right of the bottom screen and buttons to the left for controlling your on screen characters. The speakers are located on either side of the upper main screen, while a volume slider


      resides on the side of the device. A power button sits on the top, while the cartridge slot resided on the rear of the device. The DS Lite is available in a wide range of colors. The unit I tested was kitted out in a cool burgundy metallic paint job.

      The console feels pretty good in the palms of your hand, and unlike the Sony PSP does not require huge biceps to comfortably carry its weight while playing games. The dual screens are big and bright, but are dust and finger print magnets so carry a dust cloth at all times. Also, make sure to take it easy when rubbing ...


      • the stylus against the screen. My nephew was a little overzealous while playing and ended up scratching the screens surface, so be careful.

        Games are cartridge based instead of optically stored and are therefore smaller in size compared to PSP games for instance, and coupled with the devices less powerful processor, graphically inferior. If you want graphically stunning games, opt for a PSP. If you want simple, fun games on the go, then look no further than the DS Lite. I had a ball guiding my character around a topsy-turvy track in Super Monkey Ball with the stylus and its really more fun for an adult that it should be.

        The DS also comes Wi-Fi enabled, so you’ll be able to connect with other DS users as long as a network is available, and more and more games are taking advantage of this wireless interaction between players such as the popular Animal Crossing.

        The DS Lite is a portable gaming console only and is not capable of playing music, videos or images. It has no hard drive, and uses SD cards for game saves, but at its current price, it is the leading portable gaming device, with a plethora of games to choose from that utilize its touch screen capabilities in original and exciting ways. A definite recommendation from this reviewer.
