2010 List of Nintendo DS superhero games for young children

A Listmania! list by Jared Castle "Oregon writer" (Southern Oregon)
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "I received a lot of great feedback from my first Nintendo DS list (Young boys' Nintendo DS games) and requests for more superhero titles.

There's few fun superhero games available for young players. I look for games that are easy to understand, avoid unnecessary gore and language, and capture the spirit of the superhero.

Since the Nintendo Game Boy Advance (GBA) games can also be played on the Nintendo DS, I've created a list combining the best of both. If you own a Nintendo DSi, you won't be able to play the GBA games.

This isn't a comprehensive list of all games available, rather it reflects just the Nintendo DS and GBA games we own and rate highly. You'll notice many superhero games (for example, Superman Returns, Daredevil, Ghost Rider and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Power Rangers: Super Legends) didn't make our list.

Please don't hesitate to send me an email if you have more questions."
Batman Brave & the Bold - Nintendo DS
1.  Batman Brave & the Bold - Nintendo DS by Warner Bros
The list author says:
  "Enjoy the campy, fun Batman of the 1960s? Share Batman: The Brave and the Bold with your children and let them enjoy playing as the Caped Crusader as well as several of the lesser known crime fighters who teamed up with Batman."
$13.00   Used & New from: $7.57

Ben 10 Protector of Earth
2.  Ben 10 Protector of Earth by D3 Publisher
The list author says:
  "There aren't many superheroes under the age of 12. That makes Ben 10 a favorite for our kids, who love this game! Some of the boss levels are tricky but, overall, this game is great fun for Ben 10 fans."
$21.86   Used & New from: $0.30
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows - Nintendo DS
3.  Spider-Man: Web of Shadows - Nintendo DS by Activision Inc.
The list author says:
  "The sixth Spider-Man title on the Nintendo DS is the best of them all. You no longer play like Spider-Man, with these controls you feell like you *are* Spider-Man. The easier controls are great for younger players."
Used & New from: $9.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Lego Batman - Nintendo DS
4.  Lego Batman - Nintendo DS by Warner Bros
The list author says:
  "This is a great combination -- Lego and Batman -- that appeals to boys. The game is rated "E" for everyone."

The Incredible Hulk - Nintendo DS
5.  The Incredible Hulk - Nintendo DS by Sega Of America, Inc.
The list author says:

Ben 10 Alien Force - Nintendo DS
6.  Ben 10 Alien Force - Nintendo DS by D3 Publisher
The list author says:
  "Not as challenging as the first Ben 10 release but die-hard fans of the cartoon will want to play this game, too, so they can change into Swampfire, Jet Ray, Humungousaur, Spidermonkey and Big Chill."
$21.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Spiderman: Friend or Foe - Nintendo DS
7.  Spiderman: Friend or Foe - Nintendo DS by Activision Inc.
The list author says:
  "This game allows your kids to play alongside Venom, Sandman, and Dr. Octopus. Older kids probably won't be as captivated but kids under 7 are going to have a lot repeat fun."
$59.40   Used & New from: $2.64
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions - Nintendo DS
8.  Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions - Nintendo DS by Activision Inc.
The list author says:

$21.45   Used & New from: $12.99
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews)

Spider-Man: Battle for New York - Nintendo DS
9.  Spider-Man: Battle for New York - Nintendo DS by Activision Inc.
The list author says:
  "Just like in Ultimate Spider-Man you are playing in Mark Bagley's comic book world, a 3D environment that feels as though you're jumping in and out of the pages and panels of a comic book."
$36.89   Used & New from: $7.95
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

The Invincible Iron Man
10.  The Invincible Iron Man by Activision Inc.
The list author says:
  "Young kids will find the GBA version a lot more fun than the Nintendo DS translation from the movie. The downside for parents is that you don't get Robert Downey Jr. voice clips but little superhero fans will have an easier time with this version."
$71.99   Used & New from: $6.94
2.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

The Incredible Hulk
11.  The Incredible Hulk by Vivendi
The list author says:
  "You can still find a new copy for less than $20. If your child enjoyed the Hulk on Nintendo DS you should check this one out, too. *NOTE* GBA games are compatible on the DS system not the DSi system."
$17.68   Used & New from: $0.80
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

The Incredibles
12.  The Incredibles by THQ
The list author says:

$16.95   Used & New from: $0.01
2.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Spider-Man 2 - Nintendo DS
13.  Spider-Man 2 - Nintendo DS by Activision Inc.
The list author says:
  "Spider-Man's first title on the Nintendo DS is a sprawling 3D world where you can lose yourself at times. There's plenty of play here for your Spidey fan."
$31.00   Used & New from: $1.04
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

Justice League Heroes: The Flash
14.  Justice League Heroes: The Flash by Warner Bros
The list author says:
  "We owned both this GBA version and later bought the Nintendo DS game, Justice League Heroes. What you give up in graphics you'll more than make up in fun gameplay as The Flash spins around bad guys in this fun DC title. *NOTE* GBA games are compatible on the DS system not the DSi system."
$17.50   Used & New from: $3.08
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Teen Titans
15.  Teen Titans by Majesco Sales Inc.
The list author says:
  "Beast Boy and Robin were the draws for my sons. After seeing the cartoons and hearing the catchy theme song (which is captured here) my sons were hooked. *NOTE* GBA games are compatible on the DS system not the DSi system."
Used & New from: $2.95

GBA Ultimate Spider-man
17.  GBA Ultimate Spider-man by Nintendo
The list author says:
  "Venom is the star of this Spider-man title. The game play is simple and the game design has a great comic book feel. But be prepared to help younger players read the comic panels. *NOTE* GBA games are compatible on the DS system not the DSi system."
$7.56   Used & New from: $1.97

18.  Batman Vengeance by UBI Soft
