Agree. Best game I've played in a long time with brilliant graphics and soothing music. Quite easy to complete though.

I love the DS and I'm currently playing zelda. Its alright but I'm not a huge fan.
Have had my eye on that one, so maybe worth checking out. Ta

Elsewhere:

Zoo Keeper: my most-played DS title by some margin. Utterly addictive.
Honeycomb Beat: kind of limited, but a good brain-buster.
Kirby Canvas Curse: interesting take on platform games, despite totally lacking in freneticism.
Konami Classics: a fab collection of retro hits; the GBA compi is also aces.

Not:

The Settlers: totally broken.
New Zealand Story Revolution: just not worth the cash.
Boulder Dash Rock: like a rubbish version of Boulder Dash.
Namco Museum: moore proof that NAMCO HATES US ALL.
Elite Beat Agents: get Rhythm Tengoku instead—it's a million times better.
Konami Classis, was reviewed not so long ago in the Mag if I remember correctly and also noted that it looked good. Hopefully Game should have it in stock by now.

I'd go for Project Rub, apart from Nintendogz it's the only other game I've played on the DS.

I recommend New Super Mario Bros., Harvest Moon and Hotel Dusk.

All great games that will take yonks to finally complete, but you'll have loads of fun getting there.

By the way, any arcade gamer who owns a DS and who isn't considering buying Space Invaders Extreme (linky) needs a slap.
