    At the conclusion of some of the levels there are awesome mini-games...Homerun in Wario is awesome--it tests your baseball skills as much as your platform gaming skills!

    One of the best-looking GBA games to come along in some time, and definitely a great addition to the legacy of both Mario and Donkey Kong.

    A beautifully designed, quirky game. If you like Zelda, you'll love it. If adventure games and bus rides are your thing, pick it up.

    The game is beautiful and offers plenty of platform gaming excitement that wouldn’t be possible on the PS2 or even the GameCube.

    Just an especially well polished game.

    While the environments in "Jet Grind Radio" were dazzling, especially since it was one of the very first games to make use of the animation-style cel-shading technique, the levels in JSRF are nothing short of mind-boggling.

    A game that makes you feel like you're sucking on a IV drip that's pumping adrenalin.

    One of the coolest things about Fable is how your character's abilities and appearance change based on your choices. If you've been good, you'll look pure and sweet and innocent. If you've been bad, you'll look like you're touring with Marilyn Manson.

    The most well-rounded simulation in this highly-competitive genre.

    I love the fact that the game's exploration is open-ended.

    The defensive controls for World Series Baseball have to be the best out there, bar none.

    Might I remind you this is the game that finally combines using the Force and starship combat, a concept that is so cool it could chill all the beer at five consecutive Oktoberfests.

    Ubi Soft gives their mascot the star treatment and it pays off in a game that captures the real fun of platform hopping, environmental puzzle solving, and boss character combat. Rayman 3 is a treat.

    Red Dead Revolver could very well be THE game to keep the Old West genre from riding off into the sunset once and for all.

    Comic book fans will love how the game faithfully adapts the experience of being the Hulk, and people who have never even picked up a comic will enjoy the wanton destruction the players are capable of wreaking.

    On both the Xbox and PlayStation 2, EA Sports has brought the Thunder with authority as far as this race fan is concerned. I've played both versions and the Xbox version is the better of the two.

    While it's a shame the Xbox Live stuff never materialized, Tony Hawk 4 still manages to top its previous outing on the Xbox.

    The style of the graphics however, does not appeal to me, technologically impressive though they are. It's the same way I don't like jazz music, but I know there is good and bad jazz, and that it requires talented musicians to perform it, but the genre of music just doesn't do it for me.

    One nice touch is that "finishing" a mission is not necessarily the same as finishing it--any scruffy nerfherder can earn the game's bronze medals, but it takes a serious attention to detail (and the ability to succeed without overzealous use of the targeting computer) to earn Gold medals.

    The game is so cute, so catchy, and so compelling, that its appeal is truly universal.

    It has freaky monsters that pull out new surprises just when you think you're used to them. It has interesting boss battles. It has vile villains you really want to smack down. It has desperate battles where you're trapped in flimsy shacks while psychotic villagers break through doors and windows.

    I don't listen to rap music and I know very little about it, but I am enthralled by this game's easy control; wild over-the-top moves; and enjoyable story mode.

    Despite its essential linearity, Eternal Darkness leaves the player feeling like he/she has lived through a vast and sweeping tale, and is a milestone GameCube title any way you look at it.

    The system has its fair share of racing titles to be sure, but most of those games feature balloon-headed cartoon drivers or vehicles that jump over city buildings. What a breath of fresh air then, to be able to play a game on the Nintendo 64 that is at once stunning to behold and completely satisfying in its realism.

    Blast Corps is a cartridge worth it's weight in explosives. There's no game like this available for any other console but something tells me, we'll be seeing plenty of copy cats in the future.

    Bustling with alien activity, brimming with challenges and boasting the largest collection of controllable vehicles you've ever seen in an action-adventure game, Body Harvest is a blast from beginning to end. It was definitely worth the wait!

    Duke Nukem 64, while certainly not the fulfilling banquet that Rare's Goldeneye proved to be this year, is definitely meaty enough to fatten you up. Even if you feel like you're drowning in first person shooters these days, Duke 64 delivers enough innovative secrets and bullet riddled action to silence your cries.

    Added bonuses like the inclusion of the original side-scrolling turbo-cooling itty-bitty-bit masterpiece plus a tremendous hybrid of classic and new with 3D-ified straight and narrow, linear and delineated track design adds great gobs of icing to the cake.

    What a classy, clever package. Without a doubt, Extreme-G has the coolest futuristic atmosphere I've seen on the Nintendo 64. Probe may have lifted design ideas for its game but they obviously took the time to borrow from the best. Extreme-G is simply magnificent to watch.

    even though I had more fun playing through Ocarina of Time, overall, Majora's Mask is just as impressive technically and possibly even more rewarding to play because of Link's newfound abilities with each of the masks he acquires.
