Mario Kart 64
This has great multiplayer. Unfortunately, the single player wears a little thin.

Just not what a 2d game is.

Sonic Adventure International
Sonic's best 3d adventure.
What ever happened to Sonic? He was great on the Genesis, but he never made a good translation into 3d. The one exception to that rule was Sonic Adventure. Robotnick is at it again. He is stealing ...
Grand Theft Auto set in a school? How can this possibly be good?
Bully was targeted before its release as a game that would corrupt children, and make them into school yard bullies. It's clear that these people have never played the game. In Bully, you play as J...
Sonic Gems Collection
A bit bare bones, isn't it?
Sonic Gems Collection is the second compilation of Sonic games. The first was Sonic Mega Collection, which came out on all the consoles. Sonic Gems Collection has a few games, but ehre isn't really to...
One of the greatest fighters ever. Why haven't we seen a new installment in so many years?
In the mid 1990's, every fighting game had to have something that set it apart from the crowd. Killer Instinct did that very well in a few ways. In stead of the standard best 2 out of 3 rounds that...
Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks
Maybe Mortal Kombat's best adventure game.

Simple fun, and it's free. How can you go wrong?
What was the last pack in game? Super Mario Bros. on teh SNES? It's great to see that pack-ins have made a return, and it's even better that they don't totally suck. Wii sports is a collection of 5...

A very familiar game, played in an intersing new way.

About as good as Bomberman gets.
Who would habe thought the even the Turbographx 16 would have a Bomberman? Then again, it's not too surprising. Bomberman has appeared on pretty much every console since his first game. Bomberman '...
Tekken Tag Tournament (Platinum)
An interesting direction for Tekken, and it turned out very well.

Shadow of the Colossus
It's hard to find something bad to say about Shadow.
Few games few games are as interesting and innovative as Shadow Of The Colossus. Upon starting the game, you find out that your nameless character has taken his dead girl friend to a temple to have...
Very interesting, especially for a puzzle game.
Lumines Plus is a direct port of the PSP puzzle game. it seems odd that a handheld game is being ported to the consoles, but this one makes a very smooth transition. The idea behind Lumines is simp...

Donkey Kong Jr.

Street Fighter II
Old school fighting at its finest.

This works very well, ultimately making the Wii very user friendly.
First off, I need to say that this isn't really a game. The Wii channels are the main menu for the Wii. The Wii channels are what you see when you first turn on your Wii. It's presented as a number...

The best racer yet.

Street Fighter Zero: Fighters Generation
If you really want these games again, this is your best chance.
Why can't Capcom just make another Street Fighter? Why do they have to keep releasing these collections of 10 year old games? Would it really be that hard to give us something new for a change? Wel...
Oh so addictive.
Puzzle games seem to be losing their place in the market. If a game wants to have some sort of puzzle solving, it takes a backseat to some dort of adventure. So Bejeweled comming out was a great breat...
Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
Good portable fighter, but there's not alot to keep a lasting appeal.

Mortal Kombat 3
The good, the bad and the ugly all in one game.
The third instalment in the Mortal Kombat series brought some good and some not so good changes. It looks and sounds okay, but it's seriously lacking in playability. Mortal Kombat 3 is a game that ...
A good game based on a movie!?!

Super Bomberman 2
Perfect Party Game.
So many memories. Playing Super Bomber Man 2 with my friends. We played it almost every day. Back then, the game rocked. Now, I'm going to get into the nitty gritty for the first time. The main ...
True to its 2D roots, but still looses something.
Sonic is just one of those games that doesn't translate well into a 3D game. All of the most memorable one were 2D on the Genesis. So in a way, Sonic Heroes is a breath of fresh air. Most of the eleme...
