Criteria Comments Rating
  • Game library Great games out, enough to hold you out for the upcoming blockbuster hits. (i.e. Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion) good
  • Graphics The increased screen size without boosting resolution isn't that bad. so-so
  • Battery life Better than the original, but still leaves you surprised when the red light flickers on. so-so
  • Portability (size / weight) People will ask you what the freak you have in your pocket. Get a bag hippie. so-so
  • Durability Feels more solid than the original. Nicer finish, won't attract dust/fingerprints/scratches as easy. good
Detailed review
This is one great system. Looks a billion times better than the layered cake style of the original 3DS. Subtle differences like the stylus placement make this system just that much better. Once you play on the bigger screens you won't want to go back.
