Pros 3d works well,Games are great,exciting apps, great fun
Cons L and R button break!
Summary I thought that this was great and I enjoyed it incredibly for about a year but then the R and L buttons started having problems and I couldn't drift in my favorite game mario kart 3d anymore! so I don't use it as much anymore because this isn't the only time the R and L button broke they also broke on my dsi and my ds lite. If you buy this product be prepared for hours and hours of enjoyment but just a warning the R/L button may break after a while so be prepared. But overall great system and great games as well as 3d I have always been a fan of nintendo but I am sick of my R and L buttons breaking! but if they didn't break this system would be amazing.
Pros Great fun, 3D is cool, applications are a nice touch, 3D camera and video, expansive game library (and growing)
Cons I personally would of designed it different, low battery life, small stylus, camera quality
Summary Its cool and innovative. So much applications you can get (including NetFlix and Internet Browser). I would of designed the handheld a bit different because i don't really like the sandwich like design. Great 3D and visuals is a definite improvement. Overall, Nintendo was looking to wow innovative gamers and they did its job.
Pros Great hardware, the 3D really works, all of the really good games are starting to come out, fun internet-related applications.
Cons The stylus is in an awkward position.
Summary Overall, I really love my 3DS and i think everyone should get one! If i had to choose between this and the Vita, i would definitely go with this.
Pros netflix support, eshop, browser, cameras and 3D effect is great, gameboy games on eshop
Cons grainy photos, volume should be better
Summary great system, 3D is great, needs more games though
Pros A good 3D effect which definately adds a new form of depth to playing games on the go!
Some nice features like the use of AR games even if they don't appeal to everyone.
Like the new control stick which makes games like super street fighter IV handle we
Cons Poor battery life (depending on settings)
low res camera (although sometimes the 3D can compliment photos)
The software which is promised was not available from day 1, poor line-up for launch
Summary After having the 3DS for two weeks and getting to grips with it I feel that the nintendo handheld really has the potential to do well and progress with some fantastic games on the horizon. The 3D is not used as a gimmick but as a real layer of depth and this is definately a good thing for the handheld. This is definately a handheld worth getting, but with the software line up being so poor from the day 1 release it's worth waiting until a new range of titles come out. Super Street fighter IV 3D is a software title highly recommended if you plan to buy soon. But in conclusion the main concerns for this handheld are it's battery life and the fact not all the critical software is available like the E-shop or games like resident evil revalations which blew the crowd away with it's technical brilliance. The main thing is to be weary of the fact that you must decide if you want to wait for new titles or to bag the handheld now. Either way this is overall still a very welcome new addition to the nintendo handhelds :)
