    Reprises the old addictive favorites on the Game Boy Advance without any control, playability or screen limitations, and offers an excellent means to introduce the games to new fans or a trip down memory lane for veterans.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    No matter which game you prefer, this is a great collection. Except for the forgivable absence of the lesser known "Super Pac-Man," this game has everything a fan could ask for.

    Although it doesn't bring anything new to the table, Sonic Advance is an enjoyable 2D platformer that will meet players' expectations.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Roughly a four- to eight-hour journey. MF offers replay value through uncovering all the hidden areas and clearing the game within a time limit, but with such an engaging character and appealing theme, players will need little convincing for a return trip.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It manages to feel fresh due to the non-linear nature of its gameplay and the way it places its levels within a narrative context.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A polished 2D fighting game that won't disappoint the core audience of Tekken fans, but one that's also accessible enough for those simply looking for a well-made fighting game to play on the go.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    But what really sets Ecks vs. Sever apart is its emphasis on story, and the way its missions consist of more than just straightforward running and shooting.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    With its cast of cute characters, vibrant graphics, and appealing sound effects, Super Monkey Ball Jr. feels right at home on Game Boy Advance, even despite the sometimes hairy controls. It's a great title to take on the road or to enjoy with a group of friends.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Missions are well designed, elite squads carry out reasonably realistic actions, and the level of challenge is difficult but not overly daunting.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While it might not be quite as feature intensive on a technical level as the "The Chessmaster" series, it's an enjoyable, well-made chess simulation that provides the essential elements of the game and even manages to break some new ground.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Unlike most ultra-hard games, however, Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts is thoroughly addictive, despite the fact that it does get frustrating.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    It is a title filled with such joyful exuberance, from the peppy soundtrack to Yoshi's adorable mutterings, that Nintendo fans cannot help but grin from ear to ear while playing.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Each game is short on substance but long on fun.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Like its PlayStation predecessor, players can customize the difficulty level, game speed, and other options, or they can challenge a friend in two different ways: via Game Link Cable or on the same system.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Far and away the best portable football game at the time of its release.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Blowing away enemies and beasts on the small screen with a near perfect inventory and control system is rare for hand held systems
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game feels closest to 1980s arcade titles in terms of structure and fun.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    Where Rayman 3 succeeds, however, is in borrowing an wide assortment of proven concepts from past platform games, injecting them with a whimsical sense of humor, and creating tough but doable challenges sure to make younger gamers wince and older players smile with knowing respect.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The animation on each Marine you encounter is remarkable, possessing almost endless moving parts and distinct facial features, while the lighting, textures, and massive landscapes prove Halo and the Xbox to be without equal on the console market.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A game offering finely tuned level design, crystal-clear graphics, and a wave of free-roaming fun.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    A dream come true for those who didn't think it was possible for a console title to approach the level of depth found in a PC role-playing game.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The game is preferable to the PS2 version as it has noticeably smoother frame rates and quicker load times, as well as the ability to Quick Save at any point.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While the options aren’t as extensive as those found in "Madden NFL 2002," and the graphics aren’t as optimized for the console as "NFL Fever’s," NFL 2K2 features the most complete presentation of any football game released to date.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    While it is still reasonable to expect a game released in 2003 to feature complete freedom of flight, Panzer Dragoon Orta is perhaps the finest example of its type on any console released to date.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    The developers didn't tap into this system like they could have to offer new extras, four-player support, or more characters. In this regard Dark Alliance is a disappointment, but on the flip side, everything that made the PS2 game a hit has been faithfully ported over. Perhaps too faithfully.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Critic Score
    After a few minutes swaggering around with these mechanical monstrosities, players can’t help but be floored by the intense pyrotechnics and raw power found within this game.
