Top 10 Open World Nintendo DS Free Roamers


The following Nintendo DS games are non-linear by design, where the player is free to enjoy diversions or explore the world without much restriction.

I noticed there weren’t many known free roam open-world sandbox games on the NDS so I decided to put together a succinct yet comprehensive listing of the 10 best titles of the genre analyzing the details of each game given in a concise manner.
I’ve numerically listed each game in my ranking of the titles but all-around sandbox design rules over actual overall value in this matter.

00:00 – The Sims 3
00:58 – Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol
01:53 – Jackass: The Game
02:50 – Fighting Fantasy: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain
04:08 – Lost in Blue 2
06:26 – Rune Factory 3
07:37 – Car Jack Streets
08:11 – Transformers: Decepticons
09:48 – GTA: Chinatown Wars
11:13 – C.O.P. The Recruit .



  1. I knew the first Transformers Ds games would be on this list. Wouldn’t be a complete list without those two games. I never exactly got to play as many Transformer games as I wish I could on console, so im glad to have Decepticons DS on emulator.

  2. Fighting Fantasy is one of the best games on the DS, and easily one of my favorite games in general. Absolutely spectacular game if you like old-school FPP RPGs like Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, Anvil of Dawn, Dungeon Master, Witchaven, Lands of Lore 3, etc.
