Shiren the Wanderer, because roguelikes are awesome.

Etrian Odyssey, although I'm not sure how "little-known" that is.

Lock's Quest. It was a really good tower defense/beat-'em-up action sort of game by 5th Cell, who also made Drawn to Life (not the Spongebob one, the original.)

Drawn to Life, Bangai-O Spirits and, if it falls under the radar, Legendary Starfy.

I found Trace Memory to be really good and pretty under the radar. But the best one I can think of that I have and that no one I know seems to know about or have is World at War. Other games I can think of that I have are Resident Evil (I guess), Demintium (I guess), and Rayman DS

Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure.

This game got so much press on gaming sites (or at least from my perspective) that I thought for sure that more people would know about it. And yet I walked into Game Crazy the other day and neither the MANAGER or the two employees he had with him had heard of it. After I told them about it, they found ONE COPY hidden behind the counter and put it up on the shelf.

If soccer is overrated, you must live outside the US of football (football) loving A. Under the radar- pick a popular cartoon, find the DS equivalent game, and voila!

kirby canvas curse. incredible game, even tho its not traditional kirby, i really hope you guys go try it out, simply amazing.

on a side note kirby is really lacking some good games (squeak squad and the GBa games were meh) id love a great new one. oh and man i hope they make a Kirby air ride 2, i spent so much time on that. im not as big a kirby fan as i sound but the pink puff needs some love.

Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Graphics aren't anything special, and the framerate was bad at times, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a broken and boring stealth game.

Tetris DS. Yeah, the nintendo themes were hit or miss, (though personally I didn't mind,) but this was still a great and often addictive puzzle game!

And Drawn to Life. Very creative title that kinda flew under the radar.

I nearly forgot! The Rune Factory series is awesome. People seem to avoid them because they're spin-offs of Harvest Moon, but they're really good RPGs.

Who the hell doesn't know about Professor Layton? It got a players choice for goodness sake. Anyways, I would say games like Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles EoT and RoF and probably Final Fantasy III DS. IV got alot of attention but I prefered III so much more because of the job system and the control scheme. Not to mention the cutscenes weren't so extremely cheesy that it made you feel lactose intollerent.

Rune Factory 2: was a load of fun and i think it deserved way more attention than it got, and also more than the 6.5 rating.

Skate it as well.

The Rune Factorys (both of them) are excellent.

But for a fun game with a sense of humor, I recommend Sims: Urbz - a funny storyline, great characters, good minigames, and loads of replay-ability.

After I get bored with everything else I always seem to wander back to that one.

Lunar Knights: Great dungeon crawler w/RPG elements.

Dementium the Ward: Basically a1st person Resident Evil game.Great graphics & sound.

Moon:A Metroid clone but excellent nonetheless

Brothers in Arms DS:Like CoD but uses a 3rd person perspective similar to RE4.

I'll put it to you this way: when all is said and done and we've all moved on from the DS, Henry Hatsworth will most likely be in my Top 10 favorite games for the system. As a standard platformer it's pretty cool, but the puzzle elementson the bottom screenare implemented into the gameplay so well that the game achieves "awesome" status.

As far as platformers on the DS go, this game is second only to New Super Mario Bros, IMO

Word. I got stuck trying to advance past the second city, but this is THE Sims game to own on a DS. Really old, but really wonderful.

I just bought Magical Starsign recently but I haven't gotten a chance to play it yet. I'd say ninjatown is good. Too bad more people don't know about it.

Nope. The World Ends With You got a players choice award as well. its pretty well known which is probably why I can never find a copy in stores.
