Best Nintendo DS Games


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pokemon White 2
22 Kirby Squeak Squad
23 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

Expanding on Phantom Hourglass's more puzzle based design, Spirit Tracks presented harder difficulty, a well made story, and a fantastic soundtrack, three things Phantom Hourglass failed to do.

A sequel of sorts to Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks was a definite improvement, changing some of the things PH did wrong and keeping some of what it did right. And Zelda's actually useful this time!

Improved upon Phantom Hourglass in literally every regard -- overworld, story, gameplay, design, sidequests, etc.
Fun, addicting game!


24 Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia V 1 Comment
25 Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games
26 Animal Crossing: Wild World

I love this game! It might not have all of the features that Animal Crossing: New Leaf has but it is my favorite game in the series because it was the first Animal Crossing game I ever got.

This was the first animal crossing game that I got. I got it because my brothers liked it. - WinchesterGirl26

Animal Crossing: Wild World is one of the best because you can get the villagers' pics! At the moment I have Camofrog, Boone, Big Top, Marina, Opal, Nibbles, Puddles and Nan!

Wow super princess peach is 20 and this is number 55? THIS LIST SUCKS! - spodermanfan1000

27 LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4
28 Brain Age

I told my parents if I buy a ds I can be smart with brain age. My parents agreed and the day my ds came I threw the brainage chip away and played elite beat agents lol

29 Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning

Its not the best spyro game, but it is worth a try

30 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

This game deserves to be way higher up on the list. Fantastic story, fun music, very comedic writing, memorable and loveable characters, and just an overall charming game! This game is very noteworthy in that it almost singlehandedly put point and click adventure games back on the chart. Not to mention it's one of the very very few games where you play as a lawyer in a courtroom. Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended to anyone who loves reading, humor, and puzzles!

Beautiful game with a compelling story line. Anyone with a DS and a love for using your brain to solve cases should definitely pick this up.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Is one of my favorite game not for Ds but any game ever. Great story. Great characters. Great music, it's also very comedic. The entire Trilogy is great. It should be No. 1

How is this not #1?!?! 'n

31 Lego Batman

I was always a big fan of the Lego DS games, but Lego Batman was the icing on the cake! Lego Batman is awesome! At least better than any of the other Batman games out there like Batman forever on snes or Batman return of the joker on sega genesis.

32 Yoshi's Island DS

I cannot believe that this game is not on here, ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It's a GREAT game! And a classic on the Super Nintendo guys.. Come on.

33 Pokemon - Black Version

The best game EVER I may be a girl but who cares. I beat it in about a day or so. Gets hard every once in awhile when you forget what to do. Now I just have to finish the white version.

Best game ever period. No one likes it the way they should! They see that there is no old Pokemon and they're like "NOPE! " Come on guys! Give this game a chance!

34 Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

BEST SERIES! They have puzzles that stump people all ages and it is my favorite DS game of all time! Really makes you think

This should be 1

Made me cry.

37 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky

Number 100!
I actually vomited by seeing this. This is a infamous Pokemon GAME AND A SEQUAL OF DARK AND TIME. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU. This game should AT LEAST. Be in the top 30 if not top ten. This game is better than Mario Kart. In Mario Kart, all you do is race. In this game, you collect train, solve mysteries and enjoy doing it! I am so angry that this is so far down in the list. The only game I enjoyed on my DS was Explorers of sky, Pokemon Platinum and Pokemon Black 2. And I played a lot of other games too like Mario Kart, Grand Theft Auto Chinatown and accurately 13 more.

Best game I have ever played more features than darkness and better additions

This is lower than finding nemo game you need some taste - ikerevievs

Really rubbish - Mariozexal

38 Mario Hoops 3 on 3
39 Chrono Trigger

Why didn't this game make it to the top tens? It's Chrono Trigger!

Its Chrono Trigger enough said

Why do people suck and not vote for this?

One of the best games I have played.
