The best and worst of DSiWare

One year ago this week, the launch of DSiWare finally brought downloadable games to Nintendo’s handheld. The service gone through plenty of highs and lows since then; while new games are consistently released every Monday, some weeks have seen only one, while others have had four or five. In this guide, we’ll show you 10 of the best titles to appear on DSiWare in the last 12 months, and 10 of the worst. This is by no means an exhaustive list – there are plenty of great games we didn’t have room for, and plenty of stinkers, too. But it should give you a rough idea of what to expect if you’re still on the fence about getting a DSi.
