Hard to control on the DS Lite?
Reply to this Post
Just wondering... I sold my DS about a month ago as used ones were going for so much money -- over 90% of the original price! -- and waited for the Lite to finally appear in a store near me.  Got one for just Y2500 more than I received for my old DS and now I'm playing this game on the Lite for the first time.

Am I just out of practice, or is it a bit harder to drift turn using the down arrow?  The control pad seems to be somewhat smaller than on the first-generation DS, and it's a struggle.

Anyone else experience this?

I found it hard to control on the original DS. I'm probably just too used to playing it on my SP.

I keep forgetting about the SP!  Eventually I'll probably cave in and get one, especially if it's cheap.

I've always liked the Crazy Bear in Climax and the Lite really is hard to drift turn with.  My fingers must just be too big.

Maybe I'll get an ancient original GBA just for this game -- those things are dirt-cheap now.

I've never been too keen on using the DS to play F-Zero Climax.  The GBA SP or GBA Micro are better.

I just got climax a short while ago and I thought it would be OK on my ds lite. No. I had to buy GBA micro just for the purpose but now my times on GPL and MV have massively improved.

I found it very difficult too. I can't play Climax well on DS...
NDS d-pad is probably one of the worst pads around, it's almost impossible to press two directions togheter. D-pad of SP is much better and less painful to use... Smile

 I always feel like the D-pad on the DS Lite is about to break.  I personally prefer playing on the back-lit GBA SP.  The screen's really nice, it's bigger than the DS's screen and it's got a nice D-pad.  Now, if only it had a proper headphone jack!
