    I'm a huge sports and sports gaming fan so i'd really like to know if besides the obvious, you know madden 08 and fifa 08, what are some maybe lesser known (and even maybe well-known just underrated/underappreciated) games for the DS? Thanks.

    There aren't many but Mario Hoops 3-on-3 was pretty fun in my opinion and so was Dodgeball Brawlers.

    I thought the controls in Fifa 08 were terrible, just really slow and unresponsive. I don't get why it's rated so much. I like Winning Eleven a lot more, even if the presentation isn't nearly as good.

    Power Pro Kun Pocket 10... best baseball game on any handheld, in english soon as MLB PowerPros.
    Tiger Woods 08... they really improved the touch screen controls.
    K-1 Grand Prix... it's more sport then the fighting genre, as it's a realistic kick-boxing sim.

    And side note as it doesn't fully fit as sports, Club House Games has the best Bowling and Darts games.

    Mario Hoops was fun, but it was just too weird of a control scheme for me, I could never get the hang of it. Super Dodgeball Brawlers wasn't fun IMO. So really, like you've played the only good sports games on the DS. I haven't tried FS3 but the 360 version was terrible, so I have no hopes for the DS version.

    I had fun playing the latest Backyard Baseball DS. Went through the season with just one loss.

    And Tecmo Bowl DS is scheduled to come out in the Fall. Awesome.

    More to add to my post...

    Mario Hoops 3-on-3 was a good game, different (but solid and well used) control setup and crazy "mario sports" scoring system, but good game.
    Top Spin 3 is a pretty good and playable tennis game, big improvement over TS2.

    Tecmo Bowl DS should be great. And yes, Super Dodgeball Brawlers was a big disapointment to me too.

    Fifa08 seems better at first cause of its presentation but after switching back and forth a few times we11 has better control feel and AI, but fifa's long passes are better. Both are fun games.

    More recommendations:
    Top Spin 3
    Balls of Fury
    Major League Baseball 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars
