Lego Harry Potter: Nintendo DS

This product was recommended by Sandra S. from AbsoluteDoha

This one is the best amiibos to play, it will remind you of the old days! The design is amazing, each single detail especially the colors looks classic. Absolutely love this one!!

Harvest Moon DS

This product was recommended by Vincent Caprio from GamerGuyde

Whether you are a solid Harvest Moon fan or you are new to the game, Harvest Moon DS is worth the shot. It’s a farming simulation game that is very addictive, chill, and fun where you can just grow your crops, take care of your animals, and mingle with townspeople. But it doesn’t stop there; Harvest Moon is known for its catchy stories and gameplay that makes you want to play for hours. I must say, playing Nintendo DS is not incomplete without this classic game.

New Super Mario Bros

This product was recommended by Vince Massara from Sports Cards Rock

This game is the best game to bring back your childhood memory! Also, it’s a family game; you will enjoy playing this one with your kids and create new memories with them as well. The graphics are incredible, very colorful. The thing I love the most, the game isn’t easy nor difficult you have to play it well to get the experience you need to be a good player. Highly recommended!!

Pokémon Conquest

This product was recommended by Ellie Marks from Simply Mumma

Pokémon Conquest is the combination of Tecmo Koei and the Pokemon series which is way far more interesting and thrilling to play. It is considered one of the best crossovers of the games. In this game, you will have more than 600 Pokéman and new & special moves are added in the game. Both the games have maintained their uniqueness and identity along with their mixture. Players will also explore the beautiful Ransei with your gorgeous Eevee.

Mario Kart DS

This product was recommended by Gelen Revilla from Good Noise

I am recommending this classic game because the game represents a new generation of Mario that stays true to the classic side-scrolling concept of the original Super Mario Bros. games, yet makes it a little more, well, modern.

New Super Mario BROS 2

This product was recommended by Michelle O’Donnell from Brit Adventures Travel Blog

Even though it is a few years old already this is still the best Nintendo DS game in my opinion. It revamped a classic game, and to this day is still one of the most talked about games and a fan favourite.

LEGO Lord of the Rings

This product was recommended by Steven Walker from Spylix

Once again, Lego, The Lord of the Rings, is one of Nintendo DS’s most popular adventure games. Explore different adventures, players, magical items, weaponry, and many more. Fight epic battles with your army and experience your game with legendary Lord of the Rings heroes. The game has endless gameplay and is highly engaging and full of exciting adventures.

Tony Hawk’s: American Sk8land

This product was recommended by Cindy Corpis from SearchPeopleFree

If you have already played and got mesmerized by the American Wasteland on PS3 or Xbox 360, you can explore a brand-new and enormous gaming environment with this one. Players can create their skate parks, make skaters, and beat their friends on local multiplayer. You can take all the action around with you on the office and bus with this portable handheld version. This game will ultimately feel more different from the home console version, but this is a top-notch Tony Hawk’s game at its core.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

This product was recommended by Cindy Corpis from SearchPeopleFree

This Nintendo DS game is pronounced 3-5-8 days over 2, which might sound a bit more like American Football instruction. It’s all about traveling between worlds as you achieve details about Roxas’ origins in a story, which ensues between the two leading Kingdom Heart games. Being a hack-slash game within an RPG, the controls of this game are a bit clunky. But this gameplay is excellent as it offers some backstory for the hardcore Kingdom Hearters.

Pokémon: Black & White

This product was recommended by Shiv Gupta from Incrementors

Pokémon: Black & White, the second generation of Pokémon for the DS, comprises two RPG games in which the player plays a teenager who journeys around the Unova area to capture Pokémon, battle other trainers, and destroy Team Plasma. The game is about striking a balance between people and Pokémon. This game, which was released shortly after Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl, features enhanced visuals and animations in comparison to its predecessors. With so many new characters and a darker plot than previous Pokémon games, it’s no surprise that Pokémon: Black & White has been a fan favourite that fans of the brand return to time and again.
