    The right game at the right price.

    Root Beer Tapper

    Rated on March 23, 2007 by Robbie_IV

    The right game at the right price.

    Root Beer Tapper is one of the lesser-known classics of the golden age of arcade games way back in the early 80's. Therefore it's good to see it make a new appearance on XBOX Live here in good 'ol mod...

    It's not a Wario game, it's a Wario-themed game.

    Wario, long Nintendo's go-to guy when it came to handheld games, is back once again in Wario: Master of disguise. However, what was once a proud and somewhat under appreciated series has been very poo...

    A rare but excellent Final Fantasy.

    As Square began releasing old Final Fantasies in portable form, it became an inevitability that sooner or later every single game that was capable of being released on the Game Boy Advance would find ...

    If you've enjoyed any Kirby game before this, or if you want to try one out now, this is a great game to get.

    Kirby is one of Nintendo's oldest and well-traveled characters, having been in dozens of different games on nearly every one of the company's platforms over the years. He's already made one appearance...

    Super Princess Peach is good, but it doesn't do enough to stand out aside from it's main character.

    Super Princess Peach is a first as far as the Mario series goes. It's the first game in the franchise to star Peach alone in her own platforming adventure, on a quest to save Mario and Luigi no less. ...

    Kirby & the Amazing Mirror is a platformer that's recommendable to anyone with a GBA.

    When one thinks of Nintendo platformers, Kirby isn't always the first character that comes to mind. This is a bit of a shame, as he's been on more than half a dozen spectacular adventures in the last ...

    Wario Ware: Touched! is a game that starts out fun, and stays that way for a very long time.

    Metroid: Zero Mission is a very good game, but it's hampered severely by it's length.

    Metroid: Zero Mission is a mixed bag of a game. A remake of a mid-80's NES game, it actually abandons or adds to much of what was seen in that version, turning it into more of a retelling of that game...
