    Am going to be buying a DS Lite in the next few days and can get 2 games with it. Can anybody give me some suggestioons on what 2 games I should get? I need them to last a good while. I won't be playing online.

    Cheers

    Elite Beat agents and final fantasy III would be my suggestions. Hotel Dusk is meant to be brilliant but with little to no replay value.

    I borrowed my mates the other day, and its suprisingly good fun.

    Spent most of my time on FF3, Mario & Luigi : Partners in Time, and Brain Age. All three should last you a good while.

    If you like solving puzzles and reading a lot of dialogue (although it is a good storyline) I can recommend Hotel Dusk: Room 215

    I'd give it 7/10


    Or something completely different, Animal Crossings? It's very addictive and I really don't know why.

    edit: Just so you know it took me around 20hrs to complete Hotel Dusk, but once you have played it you probably wouldn't play it again.

    Kinda depends what you like... if you like platformers, then New Super Mario Bros is an essential purchase, and if you like driving (well kinda) then Mario Kart DS is fun even in offline mode. Otherwise, Phoenix Wright is good too, but much like Hotel Dusk it's not got much replay value once you've finished it. Dr Kawasaki Brain Training is also good but it's something you play frequently but not for hours on end each time.

    Best bet is to have a look through the list of games reviewed over at IGN and sort them by rating... http://uk.ds.ign.com/index/reviews....ribute=article.overall_rating&sort.order=desc

    Bought mine on Wednesday, got it with FF3, New Super Mario Brothers and Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin,

    I'd probably go for advanced wars and mario kart personally.. the latter is an oldie, but it's still a good laugh :)

    New Super Mario Bros
    Theme Park
    Diddy Kong Racing DS
    Mario 64 DS


    Mario 64DS should last you a while, plus theres loads of mini games for a little change.

    Sounds like it's worth giving phoenix wright a go then :) It looks like fun.

    I can also recommend tetris... I find it's great with Wifi :)

    EDIT: I didn't know theme park was out on the DS :confused: I'll have to try that as well.

    Any c&c style games at all? That would kick ass. :D

    Is it? I thought it was the other way round :) There's so many good 'normal' games for the DS and even more 'different' games it's hard to pick out just two. I'm currently addicted to Picross :)

    That's kinda what advanced wars is, but turned based.. not sure if there are any properly real time ones though.
