Default Nintendo DSi?

I am thinking of buying a Nintendo DSi. I was wondering what everyone thought of this game system. Should I buy it? What are your favorite games?

I have a standard DS and its a very good system, lots of good games. Best games are the professor layton series, pokemon platinum, phonex wright / apollo justice series, loads of other useful things other than games though like cookbooks, brain training and learning a language

I have a standard DS and a DS Lite, I think that's more than enough so I won't be bothering with the DSi. :P My favourite games are definitely my Castlevania ones, which is one of my favourite series. I also really enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics A2, Mario Kart DS, and Pokemon Diamond/Pearl.

Thanks X! I don't yet have a Nintendo gaming system, so I hope to get the DSi soon. Thanks for the game recommendations! I want to get Mario Kart DS.

I imagine the DSi still plays GBA games(but I know very little about the system). If that's the case then there are also quite a few good GBA games out there. Sure, they're a few years old, but not too old that they can no longer be enjoyed. I still play some of my old ones.

Thanks Xelha. Unfortunately the DSi does not have a GBA slot.

I think that would be a cool game. I know my parents are getting me one (they suck at the hinting thing), so I'm stoked. I'll have to tell them to get me Mario Kart DS so we can play together.

im a heavy gamer and i didnt like the ds. i thought the games are more aimed at 7 - 10yr olds or people who dont really game much

the only games i played was mario 64 ds and any involving cars haha

didnt really like the graphics but some games are grapiclly awesome ie mario kart, 64 ds (what ever it is) and the pokemon games spring to mind

the controls are sometimes like the 360, everywhere most of the time. so a lil rating

graphics 3.5/5
gameplay 2.5/5
games available 4/5
entertainment given 4.5/5
value for money 5/5

hope this short review etc helps
