    It caps the mini-trilogy with a flourish and makes us very, very eager to see what the next proper release in the franchise will have to offer.
    • 94 Metascore

    A classic in every sense of the word.
    • 92 Metascore

    This is a genuine classic, and portability just makes it that much better.

    Rock Band 2 has a killer track list seemingly compiled from every mix tape you were proud of in college.

    Resistance 2 is a major improvement over the original in every way. It is an awesome experience of seeing a team of developers at the top of their game and pulling out all the stops. There’s something magnificent in the campaign’s execution, a wholesale devotion to having a lot of fun.

    It’s a great comfort to know that Rockstar Games not only makes great games, but understands what makes them great. Chinatown Wars is the culmination of years of work as well as the spirit of ingenuity to bring one of the biggest series to the smallest screen. Nothing in the game feels half done or forced. If anything, the game feels like a development team having fun with a concept.

    Even if you haven’t touched a fighting game since the 16-bit era, one match of Capcom’s new masterpiece will remind you why you spent so many hours at those now long-shuttered arcades.

    The 8-10 hour story mode alone would be worth a crisp Jackson, but the fact that it comes packaged with new rides, new music, new forms of entertainment, new side missions and a handful of new multiplayer modes is simply outrageous for that price. L&D is easily the most well conceived and well-executed piece of downloadable content ever, and it sets a new bar for interactive storytelling that won’t soon be matched.

    2D adventure gaming at its best.

    Although the automatic save system makes it a great handheld title, it's perhaps even better suited to relaxing marathon sessions on your couch. Fire Emblem is well-crafted, and unless you have an aversion to turn-based strategy, it's highly recommend.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    It's the best original (nonport) GBA RPG to date, sporting stellar graphics, above-average sound, and a worthwhile experience (at least 20 hours of gameplay) that should make that next family roadtrip that much more tolerable.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    All the important elements that made "Super Mario World" a classic are preserved in this portable version and should inspire other companies to revive other SNES titles for possible GBA ports.
    • 92 Metascore

    Beautiful in both looks and sound, Metroid Fusion is simply a pleasure to play.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A technically impressive racing game for the GBA, but even more impressive is that underneath the pretty images sits a racing game that would be great on any platform.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A title that further refines the portable "Castlevania" lineup to perfection.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Once you get a firm grasp on gameplay, you'll be playing a flexible and rewarding game. With its unobtrusive story and mission-based structure, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance is perfect for gaming on the go.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Lives up to its exceptional pedigree. Not only does this sequel bring back all that was great about the original, but it's longer, harder, and more involved.
    • 95 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    A long, challenging quest that holds up well to repeated play. Younger players who never had a SNES will find this game an excellent warm-up for the soon-to-be-released "Legend of Zelda: The Wind Walker" for the GameCube.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Sonic fans will be in heaven, as will anyone who enjoys a good healthy adrenaline rush.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Quite simply the best skating game for handheld systems ever. Totally worthy.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Attractive graphics, endless gameplay, engaging strategy, new features, and multiplayer out the, ah, missile silo... what more do ya want, a parade?
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There's only one thing a game that asks you to pick a nose can be, and that's one of the best handheld games ever.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    This is as light and unpretentious as RPGs get. If the typical melodramatic RPGs make you laugh more than cry and you've grown tired of casting dragon destroyer +7, Mario & Luigi is just what the plumber ordered.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    While not without its minor shortcomings, Metroid: Zero Mission is damn enjoyable and perfect for blasting space pirates on the go.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    The Minish Cap does virtually nothing wrong. It's an excellent and faithful Zelda game, and one of the best Game Boy Advance games to date.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    There's definitely something special about WarioWare Twisted!
    • 92 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Final Fantasy VI Advance not only set the bar for RPG's in the 16-bit era, it sets a standard that few games reach in the modern era of gaming. This game won't win any beauty pageants, but easily makes up with any shortcomings with story and customizations.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Stunning. "Oddworld" is better than it's ever been, and everything about "Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee" is refined, polished, and utterly playable.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    An excellent, sophisticated, and mature game that will appeal to sci-fi and action fans, and currently represents the best of what Xbox has to offer.
