Lego DS Games
Out of all the games to be released for the Nintendo DS (Check out my top ten DS Games list) the Lego DS games will forever remain my favorite. With the Lego DS games you are given access to a uniquely imaginative world. Whether you want to battle pirates, fight as a knight, or even live in a world of space battles, Lego DS games have everything.
While I used to have fun playing with some of the best Lego sets in my youth, I have to admit that the Lego DS games manage to retain the unique sense of creativity on the new handheld gaming console platform.
The latest Lego DS games also make a whole lot of use of the screen, which makes the Nintendo DSi XL a fantastic DS console to play the Lego games on!
Lego DS Games vs Normal DS Games
A lot of people feel that the Lego DS games look and feel just a little bit too childish. But let me tell you why the Lego DS games are not only better than normal DS games, but also why they are great for adults and children alike.
First off, the graphics may look cartoony, but that suits the kids just fine, and for the adults, it doesn't really affect the gameplay!
What Lego DS games really excel in however is when it comes to their gameplay, jokes, and story lines, Lego DS games have been well designed to appeal to both adults and children alike. there is a great mix of adult wit and visual comedy for the younger generation to keep both entertained.
Even better, the gameply is simple to pick up, yet hard to master. This means that while children may be kept entertained by merely playing the game, us adults will find the challenge of mastering the Lego DS games highly entertaining.
There are a wide range of Lego DS games to choose from, and this can sometimes even be a little overwhelming, fortunately we are going to review all the Lego DS games right here!
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean takes you on a wild pirate ride where you will explore many familiar locations from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, and meet many of the most popular characters from the blockbuster movies!
Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most popular Lego DS Games of 2011 and with over 70 sword fighting moves and some ingenious puzzles to solve you will quickly realise why. The hidden treasures and vast array of interactive LEGO objects make sure that the game never gets old.
One thing that some avid players of LEGO DS Games might find a little disappointing is the lack of mini-games in Lego Pirates of the Caribbean. This is not a huge deal, since the game focuses much more on reliving scenes from the movies, but their absence is definitely noticable.
LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7
In the wake of the hugely successful LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4, LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7 concludes the story line which you began in the first game.

Lego Harry Potter leads you through the first four years of Harry Potters Hogwarts experience. You will have to battle Voldermort, cast spells, play quidditch and more as you explore the vast 3D world of Hogwarts in Lego Harry Potter.
Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4 is by far the best first person shooter to appear as a Lego DS game. It gives you free reign to explore all of the famous Harry Potter location. Exploring the world of Lego Harry Potter is a huge amount of fun. You will find yourself coming up against a whole host of surprises and mini games which will sometimes engross you more than the actual storyline of Lego Harry Potter itself!.
