Asphalt 3D: Driving games are supposed to be among the primary beneficiaries of stereoscopic gaming, the depth effect providing players a better feel for the distances of approaching cars and corners.


2 of 9

Super Monkey Ball 3D: Rolling a ball around the 3DS screen by tilting the display is a sure-fire way to lose the stereoscopic sweet spot and experience ghosting.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 3D: I don?t know enough about soccer to say whether the sport?s first appearance on Nintendo?s new handheld captures all of its nuances, but I do know it?s a great demonstration for the system?s graphics potential and depth-enhancing capability.

Pilotwings Resort: This gentle-spirited flying game has players soaring above a small island in crafts ranging from propeller planes to pedal-powered gliders.

Steel Diver: Viewed in 2-D mode this submarine adventure involving depth charges, dives, and daring attacks is fun but flat ? just another side-scrolling game set in a world with all the depth of a piece of paper.

Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition: Capcom?s popular side-scrolling fighter ? originally released for much more powerful platforms like Xbox 360 ? looks great on the 3DS, though it?s another case of a game that doesn?t really need to be viewed in 3-D.

Nintendogs + Cats: Sequel to one of the most popular handheld games ever made, Nintendogs + Cats shines a spotlight on the 3DS?s improved graphics capabilities.
