    This outstanding prequel to the FF7 saga stands alone in its own right.

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII

    This outstanding prequel to the FF7 saga stands alone in its own right.

    Ten years before the release of Crisis Core, Final Fantasy 7 for the PlayStation took the world by storm with its incredible story and revolutionary game mechanics. In 2007, Square Enix decided to revisit the world of FF... Read Full Review

    Persona 3

    The depth and intensity of Persona 3 is guaranteed to get you hooked.

    The Shin Megami Tensei series of role-playing games has always been known for its strategic turn-based battles and dark storylines. The latest game in this series, Persona 3, is no exception. In this game, you assume the... Read Full Review

    Wario Land 4

    The wacky world of Wario comes to the GBA in full fashion.

    Wario Land Advance: Youki no Otakara

    The wacky world of Wario comes to the GBA in full fashion.

    We first saw Wario in the early life of the Game Boy, with Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins. Here, Wario was the nemesis. But eventually, Wario garnered his own spotlight with the Wario Land series. The latest game i... Read Full Review

    Mega Man Anniversary Collection

    A nice compilation of games that brings you back to when Mega Man was in his prime.

    Mega Man has come a long way from his origins. We've seen a plethora of series' about the Blue Bomber, all evolving into something that is just too complex and too difficult to be any good. That's why fans of Mega Man cr... Read Full Review

    A complete waste of time that isn't worth the trouble.

    Gekikame Ninja Den

    A complete waste of time that isn't worth the trouble.

    This game came out right on the high point of the original cartoon, and it seemed like a good money-maker. However, no game can compare with TMNT's overall horrible-ness. It's a platformer-action game, which the NES was ... Read Full Review

    Mario Story

    An amazing game that will leave you playing for a long time.

    The way Mario RPGs go, you can't get much better than this. Intelligent Systems, the creator of Fire Emblem, took elements from Square's Super Mario RPG and made a visual feast for the eyes with Paper Mario. The story is... Read Full Review

    Metroid Prime

    This game is probably the best game ever to come out on the GameCube.

    1994. That was the year Super Metroid came out, and it seemed to mark the end of the series. Now, fast-forward 8 years, and two Nintendo consoles later. It's time to continue on, but in a new direction. Metroid Prime for... Read Full Review

    A fun, portable take on the standard Mario role-playing game.

    Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

    A fun, portable take on the standard Mario role-playing game.

    Before this game, we saw two great Mario series RPGs: one by Square - Super Mario RPG for the SNES - and one by Intelligent Systems - Paper Mario for the N64. This time, it's a little-known Japanese game developer's turn... Read Full Review

    Nintendo takes a bold new direction with the Zelda series in its first GC installment.

    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Limited Edition)

    Nintendo takes a bold new direction with the Zelda series in its first GC installment.

    No doubt, this game turned heads when it was first shown to gamer audiences. We had seen two superb 3D Zelda games on the Nintendo 64, and both of them focused keenly on detail and mechanics. Well, Wind Waker features th... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    This, the first 3D Zelda game, sets the bar for all the others in the series.

    I got this game the same time I got my N64, and I'm blown away like most everyone else. Nintendo could've botched this game dreadfully, but being the innovation wizards they are, they took the series in a bold new direct... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Collector's Edition)

    A great game that just can't match its predecessor.

    Zelda no Densetsu: Majora no Kamen (w/Memory Pack)

    A great game that just can't match its predecessor.

    This game introduces a rather innovative concept: live three days over and over again. Seems cool, right? Well, it is. Majora's Mask took a huge leap in gameplay and was the second Zelda game (after Link's Awakening) to ... Read Full Review

    A decent update that doesn't disappoint.

    Zelda no Densetsu: Yume o Miru Shima DX

    A decent update that doesn't disappoint.

    When this game came out alongside the release of the Game Boy Color, we had already seen a Game Boy Zelda game that proved outstanding. So, how to improve it? Why, with a splash of color, of course! This game revamps the... Read Full Review

    Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce & Yotsu no Tsurugi

    The SNES game transitions perfectly onto the GBA.

    This game was revolutionary when it came out on the SNES, and it still held a solid audience when it was re-released on Nintendo's handheld. And, you won't be disappointed, either. The gameplay may still seem somewhat pr... Read Full Review

    Donkey Kong 64

    It's easy to see why this was the last game in the series.

    I only played Donkey Kong Country 2 a little before getting this game. I never owned a SNES, so I had little experience going into this game. And, after finishing it multiple times, all I can say is that this game isn't ... Read Full Review

    Enjoyable, for a few days

    I've played Mega Man ever since I got my NES 15 years ago, but I never owned an SNES, so the first time I played the original Mega Man X was when I got X Collection. And believe me, that game is probably the best in the ... Read Full Review

    This game may draw on many other Mario games, but it introduces enough to make it feel new.

    The first time I picked up this game, I was getting the feeling of "Oh great, this isn't going to be another rehash of what's been done before, is it?" However, as I started playing, that feeling went away quickly as I p... Read Full Review
