    Can't say I can help, but while waiting for respondents you might wanna try this:

    http://ds.ign.com/index/reviews.html

    You can refine the search with the drop down menu to restrict to Action Adventure and Adventure games.

    As for cracking puzzle, I think Phoenix Wright is ok, enough for me to wanna try Phoenix Wright 2. Not exactly the survival horror types of Resident Evil though.

    The white is also kool but I read that the buttons tend to turn yellowish quite fast. True?
    Black is also kool but too many gadgets out there are black so it has become a common/std color of tech devices.

    Hi Ola, I just spoke to my 2 nephews. What I gathered from them is that there are very few people in their age group (9-12) playing NDS. Those who have found the games difficult. It could be the game the parents bought. Having said that, it might not be easy to shop for the right games for them. When they heard me say 4-7, they actually said 'forget it' (yeah kids today grow up fast), because their frens little sisters dunno what to do with their hand-held, merely push buttons and look at their colourful screens.

    There's adventure games and then there are adventure games.

    What kind of adventure games are you looking for? Resident evil is more action (than adventure), and if that's what you're looking for, the two Castlevania DS games can easily rival to that.

    If you are classical adventure game player (like those point and click adventure) go with Pheonix Wright, Trace Memory, Touch Detective and the upcoming Hotel Dusk. Lost in Blue is quite different from this kind of game, but there are similar elements to the classical adventure games. Lost in Blue sequel will be coming back soon.

    No, there's only one Super Mario Bros on DS. There are four Super Mario Bros Advance on GBA though, and you can play GBA games on DS.

    A lot of people have numerous misconceptions about NDS. Many thought that the kiddish concept on Nintendo is meant for little kids. On surface, that may be the case. Nintendo do want to have parents buying their console, knowing that they are "safe" for the kids to play with, without excessive violence or graphics that are too "real".

    The truth is, there are just so many good adult titles on DS, that many adults (white collar workers even) who are addicted to the DS. You would not expect any kids to actually play games like Brain Age, Brain Boosters, Sudoku Masters, Animal Crossing, Electroplankton, Ouendan and the likes. There are a lot of useful software in Japanese that allow direct translation of foreign languages to Japanese (people speak Thai into the microphone and it translate into Japanese). The DS Browser software is another one that is targetted with adults in mind.

    Another reason why kids don't even know the presence of the DS, is the very bad marketing of DS in Singapore. Ask any kids or teenagers out there, and they would prefer Sony PSP for the "cool" factor. Just don't ask them about what games they wanna play on the PSP though... (they won't have a clue!)

    You know I like the new black DSL so much that I am tempted to poke through the screen of my DS Phat, in order to find an excuse to get a new one...

    Luckily I'm not that insane yet!

    GF just got the NDSL white, she's not that hooked to it, BUT I AM! She's got more discipline then I do. Anyway I wanna get a black one now so can play multiplayer games and maybe reduce fighting over the console. What's the best price for it now ah?

    hello, so do u mean Super Mario Advance 4 is actually Super Mario 3? so is it on NDS or GBA?

    I remember Mario 3 is really quite interesting and had added a lot of things comparing to older Mario.. =)
