    MP: Hunters...is it any good?

    The Ds has 4 capabilities .
    1. Play original DS games.
    2. Play GBA game cartriges.
    3. PictoChat - Chat with people , around 100 feet range ( Up to 16 people )
    4. Download Play - Play VS, CO-OP games whit friends ( AD-HOC )

    Sry about the games I don't know much.S
    EDIT.

    I heard that MP has some difficult controls, but it has one of the beautifulest graphics on DS.
    About Mario Kart? It's pretty fun, has Wi-fi ( Like MP ) up to 4 players.

    dont think of buying it do buy it, it has a lite up screen, touch screen, awesome games (its more fun if you get games frequently because u will eventually get bored if u have old games), can donload game that you dont have from friends, and you can play with people across the world with some games, trust me it is awesome

    Getting a DS is an excellent idea. I have never regretted about purchasing mine. :lol:
    I may sound like a marketing employee, but I can assure you that you will enjoy everything about the DS, especially some of the original games which are available.

    HeHe.. Some one will laugh but - Animal Crosing: WW :D .
    It's a realtime simulator. Build your own town, fish, collect something etc. The possibilities are endless.You can even wisit your friends town trough wi-fi.
    It's a really relaxing game.

    Edit.

    Review here.

    I just finished Custom robo Areana and let me tell you what a game!
    New Mario bros Ds is another great game! With those 2 titles you will have a lot of time playing.

    REcommended titles.. Mario kart DS
    MP hunters, Harvest moon, Childern of mana, good stuff =)

    animal crossing looks pretty good! i might have to pick that one up tomarrow.

    anyways a good FPS for the DS is Brothers in Arms. but i beat it in one day and returned it to gamestop lol. still fun though.

    also Theme Park is a fun relaxing game to play.

    advance wars was okay as well but i ended up returning it after a few days because i was eager to try out different games, i bought that and brothers in arms with my DS with the money i got from my PSP. psp sucks btw.. lol

    The Video of XP is fake. I can do that to. All it takes is a flashcart and little video editing knowledge.

    the ds has 16+ Features
    1. Play original DS games.
    2. Play GBA game cartriges.
    3. PictoChat - Chat with people , around 100 feet range ( Up to 16 people )
    4. Download Play - Play VS, CO-OP games whit friends ( AD-HOC )
    5. Internet Browser (not great but ok for looking a websites quickly)
    these features are what flash cart has to offer
    6. Snes Emulator
    7. Sega Emulator
    8. Nes Emulator
    9. Watch Videos
    10. Play Music
    11. PDA like functions With ds organizer
    12. Msn with Beup
    13. Homebrew Apps
    14. Hombrew Games
    15. Read Comics With ComicBookDS
    16. Read Ebooks

    Metroid Prime Hunters Is So Easy To Controll but takes a few hours to get used to. Mario Kart is great fun and is great for playing with friends also all your friends need to play is a ds as the can play via download play and dont need the kart. online is good on both these games but be warned there are some really good people on wifi (also a few cheaters)

    The only good CR game was my 64 import. Even that is only just on Par. The GC one was utter crap and the DS one feels exactly the same exept with some crappy wi-fi. I am collecting wi-fi games but Animal Crossing always struck a chord of comfort that kept me happy. The GC version mey've been the same as the 64 version, but hey with NES roms FROM Nintendo as a GIFT!!!!!! You can't go wrong. If you like the GC version then help another village in the car or Starbucks or ANYWHERE!!!!!!!! Evev on a flippin plane!!!!!!! All with your DS!!!! I played that along with KH2 when I broke my leg.

    The DS is an awesome system - I never regretted getting mine like I did with my PSP. A few good games I'd recommend for you are....

    1. Metroid
    2. Elite Beat Agents
    3. Pokemon DS (Come on, nerd it up :p)
    4. Mario Kart DS
    5. Zelda (when it finally releases..)
