I luckily received the chance to have a hands on preview with the Nintendo 3DS at a showcasing recently.
As I’m sure the majority of you are aware, there has been a lot of doubt recently about the 3DS. Whether it will sell well, or if it works as well as promised and I have to admit, I was one of those doubters. I had no real faith in what the 3DS could offer until I had the opportunity to actually use and play with one and my thoughts have completely swapped. If I had the money I would almost certainly be picking one up first day.
The graphics are awesome, with 3D that actually works! I had the chance to play with the augmented reality games, which honestly were my favorite feature of the 3DS. They were pretty, fun and very well executed which very well showcased what the 3DS was capable of delivering. I also had the chance to play Resident Evil and Kid Icarus. Resident Evil didn’t do much for me, however I did thoroughly enjoy Kid Icarus, it looked good and was fun to play. However after playing these games for a while I did have a spot of trouble identifying on screen ‘directions’ for lack of a better term.
Over all, I have fallen in love with the 3DS and wish I had enough money to pick one up. I would definitely recommend the 3DS to anyone who enjoys some on the go gaming.
