    I guess it would depend on what you consider amazing - I really, really liked the retro feel and design in Dark Spire - the art and overall look of the game is stellar. I think MPH is a good game to show off what the DS is capable of, but games like Super Princess Peach/Yoshi's IslandDS with their fantastic 2D art steal the show for me, personally.

    - final fantasy 4 heroes of light really charming design
    - viewtiful joe Ds, impressive

    I meant in-game graphics, not FMVs. Any game can have great FMVs, but a lot of games with FMVs have crappy in-game graphics.



    As for it being a personal preference, I was asking for other people to name games with good graphics because I trust the judgement of GBATemp members.

    Yeah, I know, but I felt like mentioning it anyway, it has a great FMV. The in game graphics aren't bad, but if you consider LoZ Spirit Tracks graphics as good, then they are good, it's the character design that has people bawwing.
