    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

    Don't believe Gamespot. If you're a Harry Potter fan, you're bound to love this, as it's the best Potter game to date.

    Well, this has truely been the summer of Potter. The 5th movie in the series and the final book came out within weeks of each other, bringing the Harry Potter phenomenon to a whole new level. But how is the game? Not ... Read Full Review

    Final Fantasy X (Mega Hits!)

    very, very, solid rpg. Must play for PS2 owners. You will not be dissapointed.

    the Final Fantasy series is a long and prolific one. It has spanned across many consoles and years. This game chronicles Tidus (or whatever you want to call him) and his quest to save the world. Original, I know. Anyw... Read Full Review

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater

    it is in someways a radical departure from what we've become used to with MGS games, MGS3 is amazing in it's own right.

    MGS3 is a truely immersive game, even moreso than 1 and 2. It is argueably one of the deepest games I have ever played as well. I enjoyed the whole game completely, through all the plot twists, insane bosses, and general... Read Full Review

    WarioWare: Smooth Moves

    although fun and entertaining for a while; you'll be dissapointed when it ends so suddenly.

    First of all, this was the first Wario Ware game I've owned. The gameplay is impossible to generalize as it is so varied. It's basically unpredictable; you have 5 seconds to complete some silly task, then it throws anoth... Read Full Review

    Don't go into this game looking for a deep sports simulation. But for everyone just looking for fun Wii game to play...

    This is perfect. I can't think of a better pack-in for a system like the Wii. It's simple, it's fun, it's cute. It's Wii Sports. The gameplay is very simple and pleasurable. Swing the remote like a tennis racket, a... Read Full Review

    It's certainly a fantastic game and enjoyable Zelda experience, but does not quite live up to previous Zelda games.

    First of all, I love Zelda, I've played every game in the series (save the disasterous CDI game). The gameplay is the tried and true Zelda gameplay we've come to love. There is certainly nothing inheritantly wrong wit... Read Full Review

    Very intense, very thrilling experience. A must play.

    well, well, well. Resident Evil 4. I missed it the first time around on GC/PS2, so I put down $30, on this game. $30 is a very, very, good price for a game as good as this. In fact, if you have a Wii, there is nothing... Read Full Review

    Bright characters, memorable locales, and tons of great cameos and references from the Final Fantasy and Disney worlds.

    Kingdom Hearts.... It is a completely unforgettable game. Great characters, who somehow seem in place amidst a vast universe of unrelated Disney stories and characters. This game is long, relatively challenging, and f... Read Full Review

    No Zelda game will ever beat Ocarina of Time. This is the closest any Zelda game to date has come to doing so though.

    This is the Zelda game we have all been waiting for. Through all the delays, everything. It is truely a great game, and in my opinion the second best Zelda game ever, right behind the legendary Ocarina of Time. Now, f... Read Full Review
