"A fantastic handheld with good potential"4.0 starson by Techwh1zz
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 :)
