I've just bought a DS and the Brain Training game for my wife.
I'm looking for some recommendations for my first game assuming I can get on the DS!
It needs to have some action and strategy (get the brain working), easy to pick up after a break and easy to get into for short periods. What about games like Lego Star Wars, Advance Wars or Zelda ?
Thanks in advance.
Owen.

geez. Lots of requirements.
I think to fit all of those catagories, you should go for Kirby Canvas Curse, and/or Kirby Squeak Squad. The only thing that doesn't fit so well is stratagy. But the rainbow run in Canvas Curse where you have to use as little ink as possible takes some planning. The Kirby games save automatically when you turn it off, so you don't need to waste time finding a save block or anything. The levels are also fairly short, so you could easily play a level while waiting for a bus or something. Though some levels are longer than others, and if you want to get all the stuff in each level, that makes it longer too. The Kirby games also don't make you sit through a full minute of logos popping up, (unlike Hudson and atlus) and getting back into your save file take like, less than 5 seconds once you see the title screen. (in squeak squad) Canvas curse can get boring once you get to the point where you have to play through all the levels again with 4 different character balls, but the Paint Panic mini game is totally awesome, and really fun. Though if your touch screen is poorly calibrated, you'll have a hard time playing that mini game.

So yeah, Kirby Canvas Curse and Kirby Squeak Squad are good choices. Though I suggest Canvas Curse over Squeak Squad.

I would def say Advance Wars: Dual Strike (and the upcoming Advance Wars : Dark Confilct) for stratgey.

42 Clubhouse Games for brainworkout and tactics/strategy (chess, cardgames etc).

And perhaps some Mario Party DS for both strategy(of you can call boardgame with dicerolling, strategy) and some action (in the minigames).

Mario Kart DS was my first game. Recommended.

If you want a head scratcher try Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, get the Sun Key and see why. Align the Southwestern sea charts..clever puzzle.

Try Boulder Dash Rocks!, another head scratcher.

Also recommend, Advance Wars and Lego Star wars too.

I can't stand Advance Wars. Just thought I'd throw that in there. Go with Zelda for your requirements. I think it's the best fit (and one of the best games on the system).
