Bigger is better May 9, 2013
Reviewer: Magicbah  
Nintendo certainly knows portable gaming. Everything is sturdy well built and responsive. The 3d effects without having to wear glasses are awesome. Having access to the Nintendo store is pretty sweet.

Best handheld devices May 7, 2013
Reviewer: Jmnespor  
Easily the best handheld on the market right now. It has the best variety of quality games and most reasonably priced. The graphics are great the 3D is sweet. Battery life gets eaten up though with the brightness up and 3D on. It still lasts a good while even with that though.

Exceeded Expectations May 5, 2013
Reviewer: Raian  
I haven't owned a handheld console in a long while (not since the Game Boy Advance), so this thing is leaps and bounds better than what I imagined it would be. 3D is a nice feature, with the slider and having the option of turning it off. The enhanced interface and wi-fi are definite bonuses. I don't have that many games yet, but I'm very pleased with this purchase. Way to go Nintendo.

Great new Nintendo console May 4, 2013
Reviewer: docbdawg  
I've owned every Nintendo handheld since the Game Boy Color, and this is my favorite one yet. The circle pad is very responsive, even for a game like Ocarina of Time 3D which requires precise movements. The speakers are great. The top screen provides great 3D effect without glasses, though the touch screen could be more responsive (maybe I'm just used to my Android phone).
