The first great game for the Nintendo DS system is Super Mario 64 DS. This combines the great fun of Super Mario with the wireless play of the DS!
I was a huge fan of Super Mario 64 when it first came out for the Nintendo 64 - the graphics and gameplay were amazingly good. It's been many years since then, but the Super Mario 64 DS version brings that same level of graphics and fun gameplay to the portable DS system.
The dual screen really shines here - you can easily keep track of your map and objective on the lower screen while running around on the top screen. The graphics and sounds are classic, being just as fresh and fun now as they were during the initial release.
Even better, the game has built in VS mode which you can play with other DS owners who don't even own the game! They download a quick applet, and instantly can run around various boards with you, seeking stars and tracking down specials.
There are additional levels and minigames in this version of Super Mario 64 which are just as much fun as the main game. You can really get absorbed in this for many, many hours, and with the wireless VS, it's fun both alone and with others.
