Nintendo 3DS XL Review
The Nintendo 3DS XL is the enthralling portable gaming peripheral which is famous for not only its lightweight quality but also by how it embodies what a gaming device should be like. It has been integrated with the set of features that promotes its user-friendliness and higher level of accessibility.
Even though the Nintendo 3DS XL can be compared to its predecessor and will probably trick you as seeing the same thing, it still is not a loser or an utter carbon copy of the latter. For one, the 3D gaming system it has does not require the 3D glasses to be used anymore. Instead, what you get is something that is both visually stunning and entertaining on its own right even without the 3D glasses.
So, first things first, the bad thing about the Nintendo 3DS XL that still hasn’t been fixed is the battery life. It is quite short considering that it is prone for being used for hard work but then again 3.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life is not that tragic, anyway. In fact compared to its older version, it has been made to be so much better.
Physically, you will love or maybe hate how the Nintendo 3DS XL has lesser of a minimalist vibe. Although it looks cute, the XL tends to outshine the 3DS when it comes to the modern twist. The 3DS XL is definitely much taller than the last one and is skinnier as well. However, the last year’s model was slightly better when it comes to portability.
But truly, who needs portability if what you get is a better visual entertainment through a wider screen? On the bad side, there has been the lack of the Circle Pad analogue nub for this one which makes it kind of a let-down as there are lots and lots of people who look forward to that. Unfortunately, visually, the quality it has did not change at all. This may be a great thing but for those who are looking forward to something more inventive and innovative, it will definitely shock them that the visual clarity has remained intact. There are some major additions for the 3DS XL such as the dual camera on its exterior and another one at the top of the screen.
It is quite bizarre that both of the cameras are at the same position. It’s like what are you going to do with that? Still, the 0.3 megapixel it has is not such a fantastic idea to capture the hearts or rather the attention of those utterly addicted to taking pictures. Well, considering that it is a gaming device and not a camera or whatever, it’s not such a bad thing. It’s actually pretty thoughtful of them. When it comes to activities like data transfer, a lot of people say that it’s not as fast as a 3G gadget. You may need to have tons of patience to deal with the tediousness of it.
Overall, the Nintendo 3DS XL has a lot of features at its storage that makes it a real hi-tech gaming console. However, you still might find that the drawbacks it has should be fixed.
