I think this game is great on the DS for several reasons. One is because I think the graphics are great for a DS game, I think the developers took the time to make sure they could deliver the highest possible graphics for this game on a hand-held device. Another reason is because they put in extra mini-games which utilize the touch screen. The touch screen functionality can be used to heal Lara, switch between weapons, and chisel some debris away from a stone (plus many more things) when needed. The game is not exactly like the console versions but I like that it's its own adventure specialized for the DS system. I only have one problem with this game and it is the cut-scenes. Now I know there was a choice, either make a bad cut-scene with flailing limbs and talking (Resident Evil 1 - Original, Silent Hill, etc.), or import them from the console versions, they went with choice two. The problem is, is that the sound is atrocious coming out of the speakers, it's very crackly, and broken up. It's kind of like watching a 240p video on YouTube, but all-in-all it's okay because they have subtitles in case you can't hear.
yes: I recommend this product
