    Awesome game, really really enjoyable

    Fun at times but far too easy.

    Rated on December 24, 2005 by Link057

    When I first saw the graphics for this game I was disgusted that they would go away from a look that brought Nintendo so much success. Now that I have played it, I can make some observations. First...

    Why, exactly, did everyone give this game a great score?

    Rated on July 14, 2006 by darthvideous

    No, no, no, no, no. Enough. The hype for this game is impossible to explain. How is it that so many people think that floating around an ocean for three quarters of the game is “fun and addictive?”...
