Hey , I love RR! - ok the DS isn't the best version , but it's still very definately Ridge Race (not as good as the PSP version though) - I'd rather single-play it than Mario Kart anyway
Have to totally agree Marvin, Ridge Racer on the DS is excellent just like the original PSX version.

Quite a feat on the old DS in my opinion.

Not as much as you'd think, it's basically just a straight port of Ridge Racer 64.

Constantly on mine (ahem.. well my sons') are............

Big Brain Academy (I expect the other "brain games" are just as good)
Super Mario 64
42 all time classics

Or rather, the 2 Nintendo ones are. Every single clone (and believe me I've tried them all) is hideous.

It's not out in the UK yet, but if you like 42 All time classics, try "Touchmaster"

I assume you're referring to Big Brain Academy and Brain Training?

I didn't like Brain Training , partly because I played Academy first , and found BT to be nowhere near as good , but mainly because BT couldn't understand my scrawly writing or broad northern accent (but it seems to like Australian accents? :? )

I forgot about Warioware Touched.
Thought that was pretty good too.

Would definately agree.

I let my 3 and half year old son have a go the other day. He absolutely loved it.

He was that good at it he managed to erase my game, with all characters unlocked, and about 95% of sub games completed with Roses (or whatever they are).

Kids, dont you just love them!! :twisted:

Elite Beat Agents is great - it's a rhythm game using the stylus and with pop songs you'll know.

Electroplankton is more of a toy than a game, but it's one reason I bought a DS.

Animal Crossing has a lot of longevity and is good fun.

Brain Training is good, but runs out of steam after a while.

Phoenix Wright is like an interactive book or text adventure. It can be frustrating at times, but it's well written so you keep at it.

Pokemon Pinball for the GBA is excellent.

42 Games is excellent value and has a wide range of mostly basic games. The AI can be suspect at times, but the whole thing is good.

A great game, and it's long overdue a release here. I've had the US version since november 2006.

Interesting for 5 minutes IMO, but not worth spending any money on, let alone £29.99 the same as a full game. It should maybe have been bundled in with the console or given away somehow.

Great fun. I finally got bored of this after about 7 months.
Phoenix Wright is like an interactive book or text adventure. It can be frustrating at times, but it's well written so you keep at it.

Both this and the sequel are incredibly good fun.

Some of the games are good, but the whole thing is ridiculously unpolished - like a java game you find on the net. It is cheap though.
