Nintendo 3DS review

I recently got myself a Nintendo 3DS, because I’ve had my friends tell me it’s worth getting one. Boy, were they right. The Nintendo 3DS is a handheld, portable console that can connect to the internet like other modern consoles. Unlike most consoles, you do not need to buy a subscription to play online. All you need to do is share your friend code with your friends. You can even surf the internet on it!


I must say, the graphics are pretty impressive. It reminds me of the PlayStation Portable. The selling point was the 3d mode, where you got to see more depth in the games and have it look like things are flying out at you. It took me a while to get used to the 3D mode. While I can handle it at a milder setting, I usually leave it in 2D mode. 3D mode affects people differently, so check how it affects you carefully.


The 3DS also comes with a two way camera, pretty much like an iPhone. You can take photos and save it inside a SD card. The camera can also be used in interactive ways, like playing some games or even helping you make your Mii.


Miis have returned for this console. This time, they go where ever you go with your 3DS. Also, you can turn them into QR codes, which lets friends have a copy of your Mii in their 3DS, with the help of the camera.

I’m very happy with my 3DS. You can usually find one at a good price. Just keep in mind that you’ll need a SD card to play some games. Other than that, the 3DS is a delightful system. I can happily recommend it for anyone who loves video games.
