    Could running be more fun? Yes. You could play as a blue woodland animal, like a Hedgehog.

    There isn't much to say if you've played the first game. More fast paced running, jumping through robots, and fighting the notorious scientific mastermind, Dr. Robotnik. A couple new ideas have been t...

    Overall good, but a couple problems bog down the experience. It remains a good game though.

    Being the only true sequel to it's previous game, FFX-2 has a lot to live up to since it came right after X. It only fulfills that legacy partially. Some parts of the game are pretty good while others...

    A fun side scroller in a realm of sidescrollers. Back then, most games weren't worth even considering buying. All you could do was walk and jump. Some of them featured attacking, but not nearly eno...

    Fast paced 3d gaming that will give you a generally good time.<br />

    When you pick up this game, you will invariably enjoy yourself whether you're a Sonic fan or not. It doesn't hit sweetspots all across the board, but most of the time it won't disappoint. Most games t...
