The 31 best DS games

If you'd rather take your gaming on the go, we've got a handy guide for dual-screen greatness: The 31 best DS games!

#14: Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword


Why It's Great:Before its premiere on the DS, the Ninja Gaiden series existed in two forms — as an impeccable 2-D action-platformer, and as a 3-D pure-action title, both of which featured super-refined controls. When the series was announced for the DS, many people expected to see a 2-D title using traditional controls. Thankfully, they were wrong. The mostly stylus-based 3-D action title brought to mind Ryu's excellent Xbox adventures, while managing to create great gameplay experiences all its own. Hopefully this series can continue to bless the DS, even without creator Tomonobu Itagaki at the helm.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
