    Super Smash Bros. Melee

    Smash Bros. Melee is another Nintendo masterpiece that continues the beating and brawling from the N64 version.

    2 years after Smash 64, Melee literally became a smash hit, becoming one of the top-selling GameCube games of all time. Now, over a decade later, it is still revered as one of THE best fighting games ever, and many still... Read Full Review

    Ski Doo: Snowmobile Challenge

    For $3.00 this game is worth picking up, even if you're not really into snowmobiles.

    Yes, I really did get this game for $3.00 at GameStop and yes it is worth the purchase, especially if you like trick racing games like Pure. The whole point of the game is to race in 'Career Mode' so you can unlock driv... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros. 2

    Most of us have 'been there, done that' with NSMB2, but even so, Nintendo still knows how to make quality games.

    This time around, the Mario Bros are getting a little bored with just clearing levels for the sake of advancing closer to Princess Peach's captors. Rather, they are on a quest to collect a million coins on their exploits... Read Full Review

    Dragon's Dogma

    Slay legendary monsters with up to three AI companions in a huge fantasy world.

    The world of Gransys is full of beauty, scale, and legendary beasts. It is also where a fearsome dragon steals your hero's heart (literally) and lets loose a barrage of monsters upon the land. This game may feel and soun... Read Full Review

    Retro, side-scrolling Mario fun.

    This was Mario's first handheld game for the GameBoy, and in many ways it disappointed fans on various fronts while at the same time was a system seller. For starters, you can only play as Mario, who looks very much l... Read Full Review

    In this version of the game, Spidey can beat up clowns.

    This is a fun little handheld game that's loosely based off of the 2002 movie of the same name. It's a traditional 2D side scroller that allows Spidey to crawl up walls, punch and kick enemies, and shoot webbing. Colo... Read Full Review

    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

    Treasure hunting has never been so epic... both in games and in films.

    'Cinematic' is how I would describe Uncharted 3 - at times it feels as if you are in control of a major feature film, making the protagonist escape gunfire, explore ancient ruins, and discover legendary treasure. The gra... Read Full Review

    If this game had more content and more freedom, it could have been great... and worth your money.

    The reason I purchased this game was simply because there were no games on the 3DS where you can play as your Mii (save Mario Kart 7and Nintendogs). Sure, there's 'Find Mii' in the Mii Plaza, but you don't even play as y... Read Full Review
