    Cheaper choice over 3DS

    Worth it if you don’t think you’d use the 3D features of the other models. Just watch out if you want to play games that require the “New 2/3DS” the new 2DS will run you about $150 while the new 3DS will be $200. Also check the box on the systems before buying, i picked up an AC Adaptor as I thought they all stopped coming with them, this one does so i ended up returning that. I have an older 3DS with eventually the right shoulder button got stuck and i failed to fix it myself, so i have an AC Adaptor somewhere just don’t know where at the moment. If you need that it will run you an extra $15, though i doubt it would’ve costed Nintendo much to just include it. Only thing I’d say about this 2DS is how it doesn’t fold for portability, but just put it in a different carrying case, i know they had a program where it could function as a pedometer and the streetpass feature, used to use that on the old one when going to events where i know people would have their systems, but it isn’t a big loss, isn’t worth me paying over $100 when this was $80. And you realize as an adult you play the game more at home if you aren’t riding as passenger often on long trips or daily commutes and driving yourself, and work breaks never seem long enough to get into that stuff, what’s when we use our phones or read the paper or something lol minus the time it takes to get your food on breaks.

    Great Nintendo Handheld Console

    I had taken a break from Nintendo since I was a kid and did other gaming. Loved Pokémon, Mario, Smash Bros and other titles though. My boyfriend and I just decided to dive back into gaming of that sort and bought this model and he got the 3DS. I love this 2DS model. He got the Galaxy Design one which didn’t come with the Super Mario Bros 2 game but we bought it digitally on the store and even when our WiFi went out we can/could co-op play Mario together which was epic. The Screen is great, I personally love how it doesn’t fold. Speed of the two consoles is same or nearly the same. They are the same specs almost to the t I do believe. We’ve been playing Pokémon Yellow too lol I’d highly recommend this console. They also have apps in the store such as YouTube and I think even Netflix he said. Very epic. We don’t have to stay on the soda and use the other stationary gaming console to always watch Dr. Who or other shows anymore lol. I talk too much haha. Great Nintendo system though, truly. I am such a nerd and I recommend lol.

    Pre-hurricane Irma purchase

    The thought of being without power and without Mario games had my family in a panic. The kids were out of school for 6 days and this provided ample distraction. We have 3DS XL’s, WiiU and a Switch. The 2DS is a nice addition to our Nintendo collection and everyone in the family has continued to play with it after the hurricane. Last week when the kids were in school, I had a doctor appointment so I took the 2DS with me. Four people in the waiting room asked me about it and it’s not because I had the volume up. They just wanted to know where to buy one. I highly recommend checking it out in person, and if you’re in the fence - just go for it. It’s a lot of fun for all ages.

    Bought for my 8 yr old son to play during a long car trip. He loves the included Mario game. I wanted to use this first as a stepping stone to a 3DS or Switch based on how responsible son is with balancing time between the gaming with school and exercise. I bought the 2DS because it was half the cost of the 2DSXL and included a game. Battery life seems great and the case is durable; it was dropped onto a hard floor and popped the back cover out of place but continued to work and with a tiny screwdriver I was able to fix the panel back into place. On a side note I grew up on Nintendo and enjoy the Mario game included.

    Better than playing on a phone or tablet

    The game quality on the Nintendo 3DS / 2DS consoles are just leaps and bounds above what is available on most tablets or phones. The console is very well built has a battery that lasts for hours of gameplay and can sit in standby mode for weeks it seems, where you can just pick it up and play it. Great for when on the road/traveling and you're tired of all the tap tap tap games of the phone and want something a little more enjoyable. With the 2DS you get all of the enjoyment of the 3DS without having to have the headache of looking at a 3D screen.

    Bought it for my 6yr old son, after he constantly reminded me about asking Santa for a video game. Best purchase ever, mario pre-installed and we take runs to play. I can't get it out his hands, but it is a reward fro job well done in school. We just bought Mario cart and Luigi mansion this past two week, it is better in 2D especially for his age. I am very happy with my purchase, just seeing him happy.

    I purchased this system for my 5 year old daughter and she absolutely loves it. The Mario game that is built in is perfect for her level and she gets better everyday. Also I tend to play it from time to time and I love it. Very easy to setup and connect to internet, even purchasing games from the Nintendo store is a breeze. I would recommend this for any child and parent who loves Mario.

    I got this 2ds with one of my best friends. Ive had my New 3DS with me for a few years now. and he always wanted to play the games but did not want to spend money, broke college student. this is the cheapest way to get into the huge library of games for the 3ds! its compact and small! so you can take it with you, just about anywhere!

    After a little more than a month of owning this device, I was unable to turn on the device. It would begin to turn on with a blue light, then make a popping sound after a few seconds as it powered off. I found this same problem on the internet from many people over the years. I have sent it to Nintendo for warranty repair.

    My son absolutely loves this and it's perfect for his small hands. It's a great deal for a first handheld gaming system. Even me a daddy love it. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that they don't sell a protective case or gel cover for them in stores or online. Great deal at 79.99 compared to $150 for the ds Xl

    My son received this for Christmas and loves it. We had purchased an older DS for his birthday last summer but we wanted to play newer 3DS games. We settled for the 2DS so that he was able to play the 3DS games but with the system at a much less expensive price. All in all it is a fun system for a great price.

    Bought as birthday present for my son who turned 10. Of course he enjoys this very much. I did put parental settings in and a pin number also. He already made it to world 4 by the time it was his bedtime. Set up is very easy takes less than 10 minutes. Great handheld systems for kids this age and a little younger.

    I really wanted to like the 2DS without the folding option but I had to go with the more expensive folding 2DS XL to get a screen size I was comfortable with. At its price point I'm sure it is a great product for a younger child. But to catch up on all the latest things Mario I would opt for the new 2DS XL.

    I have a 4 year old and 6 year old. I bought one for each of them and I got them this DS because it wasn't the foldable screen and it's harder to break. The kids love it and it keeps them entertained when they are allowed to play with it and I would definitely buy this product again

    Very happy with the performance and game quality on this least expensive of Nintendo consoles. We have the WII U and the games on this are very comparable. Didn’t want to purchase the Switch for my 9 year old just yet and find the 2DS to offer a good portable game experience for the money

    I got this for my brothers family for Christmas and they have finally beat the Mario that came on it. Its fun to play with, he has 5 kids 8 and under so you can imagine what it has endured. Still works great and no problems.

    I bought the 2DS as kind of a spur of the moment quick buy.The library brings me back to my childhood. It’s fun, durable, and an easy to use. Wether it’s for the kids or busy adult trying to make cardio go a little faster. The 2DS is a good choice for someone at any age or level.

    If you’re looking for a cheap way to game on a DS, this gets the job done . However, it’s not durable at all. I dropped it about 4 feet and the screen cracked. I called Nintendo and the cost to repair was just as much as buying a new one

    I love that Nintendo gives us an option for a more affordable handheld gaming system. The 2DS plays 3DS games, has great graphics and is very user friendly. In addition, parents can set up parental controls. Definitely recommend.

    My grandsons are 5 & 6, the Stylus got lost, but they are able to navigate through the toy. Presently serves its purpose, since I do not play games, I don't know how to work it or help them. that has nothing to do with the performance.
