Pokemon B/W, The World Ends With You, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Contact... Basically anything with a solid commitment to style instead of an attempt at "high res" graphics. I still think Final Fantasy 6 is one of the most beautiful games ever created, because it worked within the system specs, committed to excellent spritework and thus isn't aged by future gaming - it's already gorgeous and will remain gorgeous, whereas a game like, say, Silent Hill or Final Fantasy VII looked "good" at the time, but aged horribly.

Final Fantasy III and IV's intro movies are amazing. I wish there were FMV sequences like that during the actual games. But yeah, I'd have to say that those movies look better than anything else on DS.


Of course, these games have good graphics during gameplay too, but can't compare to these movie sequences, nor can most other things on DS.

The new Lufia isn't the most polished 3D game I've seen by Square Enix, but it's got the most impressive draw distance I've seen in a DS game, especially in consideration of how much detail there is. It's fully 3D -- just a super-impressive presentation for this system. A little slowdown here and there, but it's not something that hinders the gameplay in any meaningful way.

Lufia DS has some pretty damn amazing graphics for a DS game... I like the art style a lot as well ;D

And that Kingdom Hearts DS game had incredible graphics as well..

Not to mention Final Fantasy III and IV, and both the Crystal Chronicles games.

Oh yeah and Avalon Code has fairly good graphics.

(Sorry if any of those games have been mentioned before, but I was just listing all the 3D games that stood out for me as looking above average)

RIZ-ZOAWD is really the only DS game that has fantastic graphics. The others are just so-so, even Estpolis/Lufia can't beat it.

I hope you do realise graphics don't make a game good though.

I hope you realize prerendered intros are hardly displays of good graphics. Like in some of the Kingdom Hearts cutscenes all it does is use video done on the PS2 engine and play it on your DS. It's just as technically impressive as taking Avatar and playing it in DPG format. Although Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days had pretty good graphics (I have yet to see Re:coded).

FFIII and FFIV weren't that impressive really. I thought the little pencil-point character models were ugly as hell.

Now for some 2D games, Batman: Brave and the Bold was pretty good looking, and the Castlevanias are always a yes.

Re:Coded is nothing special, both in terms of gameplay and in terms of graphics. It looks pretty good, but that's about it.

EDIT: lolwut, what the fuck happened to my post layout? What's that enter doing there? Nevermind, fixed.
