    Overall, it's a very well-done AND enjoyable game.

    Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

    Overall, it's a very well-done AND enjoyable game.

    Sure, it's grittier. Sure, it's darker. Sure, it's more detailed. Sure, the COs are no longer emphasized as much. But really, those are the most major changes in what can easily run in the race for best Advance Wars titl... Read Full Review

    Unpredictable fun, if you like your fun unpredictable.

    The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age

    Unpredictable fun, if you like your fun unpredictable.

    For a turn-based strategy game this is quite a random title. Too many details you can't predict, leaving the battle's ultimate fate at a loss. That's part of my enjoyment of the game I guess, but there's also a good chan... Read Full Review

    It's not the worst game ever, but that doesn't make it worth it.

    Stuart Little: The Journey Home

    It's not the worst game ever, but that doesn't make it worth it.

    Normally, I'd insert some less-then-witty opening about what word impressed me most about the game. In this game's case, it's not even worth it, I need to keep the review shorter than the game. Story: Stuart needs ... Read Full Review

    It's a on-rails alien ship shooter. A bit short, and very difficult, which seems to be the usual formula of the time.

    Strike Gunner S.T.G

    It's a on-rails alien ship shooter. A bit short, and very difficult, which seems to be the usual formula of the time.

    The story: 4/5 (for humor value) Paraphrased from the manual: In the last years of the 20th century the world supposedly would lay down their weapons of nuclear doom and create peace, except for a madman who harbors d... Read Full Review

    Sonic Advance

    This is what happens when Sonic Team does Sonic right.

    Sonic is back in 2-D for the first time since the Genesis days, and for the first time ever he's on a Nintendo system: The Gameboy Advance. And it proved to Sega they could still make good Sonic games even though they no... Read Full Review

    It's fun enough, but lacking most everywhere else.

    Sonic Battle

    It's fun enough, but lacking most everywhere else.

    Sonic's only American fighting game, it makes up for lack of content with an expansive story and fast gameplay. How fast? Too fast. Story: Think Sonic Adventure type story, with more robots. Sonic finds a device ... Read Full Review

    Sonic Rush is fast, perhaps too fast.

    Sonic Rush

    Sonic Rush is fast, perhaps too fast.

    If I were to describe Sonic Rush in one word it would be the word "Fast". Sonic Rush is all about speed, it gives you lots of slopes and loops, speed boosters, rails to grind, and the boost meter to increase your speed m... Read Full Review

    There's a lot here not found in other Mario games, and it makes for an entertaining experience.

    As one of maybe thirty fans of this game, I realize that I am in a minority as a gamer. That has never stopped me before, and will not stop me now, from pointing out just why I enjoy this game when so many others have gi... Read Full Review

    One of the best racing games ever, and the best kart racer anywhere.

    Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)

    One of the best racing games ever, and the best kart racer anywhere.

    Mario Kart has been the leader of the kart racing genre for years, it didn't invent the formula, but did make it a well-known one. And this latest title doesn't subtract from that. Story: None. Mission has some b... Read Full Review

    Just because it isn't the original game doesn't mean it's worse then it.

    Super Mario 64 DS

    Just because it isn't the original game doesn't mean it's worse then it.

    The original Super Mario 64 was a humungous success thanks to implementing 3-D graphics that were unheard of, and the result was hugely popular. The same game that pushed the Nintendo 64 to legendary status is remade as ... Read Full Review

    F-Zero: Falcon Densetsu

    It was great fun while it lasted.

    The first real sequel to the Super Mario Bros. series does the originals true justice.

    The original Super Mario Bros. was a hit, and the sequels were hugely popular. But since Super Mario 64 broke new ground with 3-D we haven't had true Mario 2-D, Super Mario Advance was good, but was still a remake, n... Read Full Review

    What Sonic fans expected disappointed Mario fans.

    Mario & Sonic were rivals in years past, but after Sega's consoles died they stopped competing for customers. And, years later, they get their very first game together. But instead of a platformer they got a sports game,... Read Full Review

    Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith

    Another game to prove that movie games aren't all bad.

    Perhaps the best version of the game based on the movie, and a game good enough to prove that not every single movie game is bad. Story: Seen Episode III of Star Wars? It's loosely based on it, since it was released ... Read Full Review

    Star Fox

    The start of the series is simple, and effective.

    The Super Nintendo wasn't a powerhouse for 3-D. No matter how good its 2-D was, its 3-D looked rather, flat. Along comes Mode 7, a method of 3-D that isn't much more then vertical, horizontal, and diagonal flats lines, a... Read Full Review

    The groundbreaking game still stands up after almost 20 years.

    It was groundbreaking, a new Mario game for a new Nintendo platform. 16-bit graphics far outplay anything the NES could put out, and the new save feature meant you didn't have to beat it in under a day, you could explore... Read Full Review
