    The gameplay remains true to the original and the two-player mode is a blast. While there are some glitches with the multiplayer and the one-player mode is lackluster, the game still remains an arcade classic.

    The biggest problem I ran into was the AI of my bus drivers. These guys are important as they ferry customers in and out of the park, as well as to the dinosaur areas. It seemed as if I hired 4-year-olds to drive the buses.

    Probably the best racing game on the Game Boy Advance. It has great graphics, good control, and is a lot of fun to play. The password system is the only real problem I’ve found.

    If there's a single problem with the gameplay, it revolves around the overly simplified putting mechanisms. It's just too simple to make 30-40 ft. putts and I do it regularly.

    While the gameplay is still fairly solid, it just isn’t quite as fun as it used to be. It didn’t blow me away and make me want to play for hour after hour.

    The only downfall is that you might find it a little short, but it still is one of the most unique titles I've played in a while and comes recommended.

    As good as Madden 2004 is, I distinctly remember playing this game before. Twice actually. I know there isn’t a ton that can be changed, and I know that the console versions don’t change much, but there can be something done here I’m sure.

    While the gameplay skews a little heavily towards the puzzle side, it’s worthwhile for anyone who is fan of a good game.

    Difficulty level aside, this is an excellent game that fans of shooters should not pass up.

    If you haven’t played this game, you need to. The game featured big tracks, jumps, engine heat, and a track editor. The only downfall was you couldn’t save tracks – the GBA fixes this.

    To our delight, Rage has done a wonderful job of putting the movie into game form, and at the same time has made a game that is actually good.

    A fan's dream come true. The game is true to the series, and will quench any fan's thirst for a video game based on the series. I recommend that most action fans look into BUFFY. Even with some of the annoying faults, the game isn't to be missed.

    Deadly Alliance has done the job which was required of it: make the series respectable again.

    Another Lucasarts game that cashes in on the Star Wars franchise name. Fortunately for us, it’s a good game.

    A pretty rock-hard game. While it is somewhat short, the game is action packed and the three-form combat modes add a lot to the game.

    The Xbox Live support really adds to the lifespan of the game, so if you’re ever in need of opponent, it feels good to know there is one only a few button presses away.

    An exciting action game that features a plethora of shooting. While it does this aspect well, the main selling point is the fantastic sense of humor.

    It's the best of its kind on the consoles with the historical details, cinematic gameplay and fun factor overwhelming some unoriginality and glitches.

    The Xbox version does allow more enemies on-screen at one time, which does increase the difficulty level a bit. But, truth be told, only a few enemies are added and most gamers probably won't notice the difference.

    That's the big thing this title has going for it. It's fun to experience this amazing world, and if there was something focused on during the game design it was making sure that the world was a good place to go play in.

    My favorite mode is still the one where you must pick your team from a random group of players and go at and opponent in the same situation – putting square pegs in round holes has never been as much fun in the NFL.

    It appeals to all gamers of any age, gender, or style of gaming. It has a bit for everyone, action, puzzles, adventure, comedy and it set in a popular film world.

    The sheer replay-ability and open-ended nature of Animal Crossing is what makes it so much fun to play. There are so many different things to do, so many bugs and fish to catch, and so much interior decoration.

    It really has the biggest environments of any game that I've ever seen.

    A lot of fun, and definitely worthwhile if you have a lot of friends. For solitary gameplay though, you might want to pass this one up.

    Gameplay wise, the control is excellent.

    Do not play this game alone or with one other person. It just isn't that fun when you don't have a minimum of three or the ideal four players for the game. This is a party game, and no one likes someone who likes to party alone.

    Feels like "Castlevania Lite". It's got all of the story, the visual style, the whip, the weapons, and the enemies. What’s missing is the rich fulfilling satisfaction of the rest of the game – the RPG elements, the total depth that has been established since the PlayStation and Game Boy versions of the game.
