Bowser's Inside Story and Partners in time are legends! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Anyone who doesn't agree that this is the best game on the DS probably needs to play all the games on the system and think again. - Pikachu7586

Very creative game - YOSHIA2121

3 New Super Mario Bros.

This is the best Mario game for ds, hands down

Seriously, this is the best. It brought back the old school gamestyle with the 2D platform and storyline. Add this to the most epic bosses, super awesome graphics, new levels and secrets, and this game has it all. Truly amazing.

I totes agree with u both

This is awesome
spent over 100 hours at it and still
not tired

4 Mario Kart DS
5 Mario Party DS
6 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time

I'm so happy this is at the top! Usually I see people saying this is the weakest in the Mario and Luigi series, but I strongly disagree, although everyone is entitled to their opinion. I loved the bosses, the music, the gameplay with the babies, the locations, the plot being darker and more thought out than other Mario games, and the characters! Overall, a really fun game, although it is kind of short.

Coming soon... Top 10 Reasons Why Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is Better Than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

Examples: The Baby Mario Bros. , The Graphics, etc...

My favorite thing is the level up system!

7 Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again
8 Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis

Story: 7/10.
Gameplay: 7/10.
Graphics: 10/10.
Sound: 7/10 (everything else sounds fine, but Mini Peach's voices are examples of the worst voices in gaming history).
Music: 10/10.
Difficulty: 10+/10.
Creativity: 10/10.
Nostalgia level: 10/10.
Voice acting: 7/10 (the only giant flaw is the Mini Peach toys' voices).
Humor level: 9/10.
Controls: 10/10.
Character sprites: 9/10.

This game gets an 8/10 score.

Stop saying "all time". The ds lasted from 2004 to 2011 so it hasn't been around for all time.

I remember when I was playing this game when I was a little girl.

This was my first mario game, it was so fun. - Super64Mario

13 Mario Calculator


14 Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games

How could this possibly be any good... I played the Wii version and it was pure misery. - TwillyFSniper

Fantasic. I loved the mix and the storyline is great. Probaly the best mario game on the DS, but the fact that its equally as much about Sonic is a let down.

Apart from the anti-feminism, I would recommend this game, especially for a M&SatOG game.

15 Mario Hoops 3-on-3
16 Yoshi's Island

A remake of a classic game forever in our mind

17 Super Smash Bros.

This too is on the 3DS dumbhead who put this here!
