Recommend some 3ds games?

Post by cRacKh0rN » January 23rd, 2015, 11:10 am

I've preordered a new Majoras Mask 3ds XL which will make me a first time 3ds owner.
Can anyone recommend me some good games? So far I have Mario Kart and Nes Remix on the list.
Any decent third party games?

Pokemon X or Y, or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby. I got really into Omega Ruby, and it wasn't planned.

Zelda LBW
Best game on the system. Good looking, great music and based on the best Zelda ever made.must have title.

Mario 3D Land
When this came out, I could not put it down. Great and plays like the Wii U version.

Professor Layton games
I love both of these and Miricle Mask was pretty fun and you get a lot of hours out of it too. If you liked the others you will enjoy these.

Mario Kart 7
Was the best MK game I played until I picked up MK8 on the Wii U.

PilotWings Resort
Plays like the plane mode inWii Sports Resort on the Wii but has a lot more too it this time - fun and cheap.

New Super Mario Bros 2
This is pretty good but not as good a NSMBU by a long way on the Wii U wich is the best 2d Mario ever - that inclds SMW on the SNES!

Luigi Mansion - Dark Moon
Didnt like but if you're a fan of the GC game then you will like it.

Zelda OOT 3d
Plays and looks better than the N64 version. Must have if you havent played it before.

Star Fox 64
Basically the N64 game on the 3DS which is a great game. I find it a bit hard to play on the small screen though but still good.

Thats all the games I have played on my 3DS.

You can get Prof. Layton - Miracle Mask (great game) here:

For £6.95 new posted, which is pretty cheap.

I was going to put my Luigi Mansion up for sale soon, so if you're interested send me a MP ;) No worries if not.

:lol: Understood :)

Picked up a few already so let's hope I like the 3DS :D

- Zelda LBW
- Prof. Layton & The Miracle Mask

Anyone played Kid Icarus? It looks like fun but lots of reviews say the vocals are a bit annoying...

So many great game suggestions here! I'm going to pick up Pilot Wings Resort myself. I've had success finding game recommendations with Games Finder before, might be worth a look as well for OP.

Kid Icarus is good but it's a **** to play with the controls. you walk away with claw hands.

If you're unsure about Pokemon, try the special demo for Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire.

Get Kokuga on the shop thing. It's by GRev and it is great!

I got told there is this game called Weapons Shoppe or sonething like that and it is supposedly very good.
