    High praise goes to them for also managing to fit joy, creativity and discovery into the game and doing so without the use of Full-Motion Video (FMV) and the CD soundtrack his critics said was needed. This game is simply the most complete experience of any game ever made making Ocarina Of Time the game I've always dreamed of playing.

    The new cast of characters created for Perfect Dark is grossly inadequate when compared to the ones from GoldenEye. The lead player-controlled protagonist, Joanna Dark, exhibits few emotions beyond being clueless and bland.

    Here is a game that not only changed my perception of games, but also changed my perception of the world. Never shall I pass a security camera again without itching to disable it with a pinpoint accurate shot. Altering a person's perception is not an easy thing to do and qualities like that make for some very interesting art.

    The game's new features have not been perfected and the frantic pace can feel unbalanced—no doubt a factor due to Miyamoto's lack of involvement. Despite these problems, Majora's Mask is a wonderful place to visit.

    Simply the best console golf game ever made. Mario Golf will surprise you because it's much closer to a simulation than its appearance lets on. Older gamers or golf enthusiasts should definitely do like we did and put aside prejudices and give the game a shot. I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised.

    Some gamers will feel overwhelmed just as I did on a few occasions, but that’s understandable. DK64 was never meant to be beaten in one sitting. Be warned that there is a lot of backtracking involved and it’s not for the faint of heart.

    Gone are the muscle cars, the rally vehicles, and the crazy collection of authentic automobile licenses. Beetle Adventure Racing managed to take me out of the stale racing format and threw me into an exploration game.

    The game isn't perfect—I would have liked even more tracks to race on as well as a few more racers—but there is no arguing the excellent gameplay.

    Pure harmony. Its minor flaws are more than proportionally corrected by its many great features and almost all of the elements (story, graphics, gameplay) come together to form one of the most artistically cohesive videogames in recent times.

    Jet Force Gemini has everything an action game fan could want and more. It has big explosions, big guns, and big special effects. After giving it a go, however, I am inclined to think that Rare bit off more than they could chew.

    It'll never be confused with "Street Fighter" or "Tekken," but then again it was never meant to. Nevertheless, it’s the most original fighting game on the market and possibly the best multiplayer game on any system.

    Proves that the third dimension isn’t always the savior it claims to be when attempting to offer game series another shot at glory for a new generation. Certain transitions simply aren’t meant to succeed.

    If it inspires you to take up photography, visit a zoo, or go on a real wild safari (not that phony Disney stuff), the experience would be far richer.

    The best things that Kirby's adventures are known for, such as interesting abilities and great boss fights, have been thoughtlessly removed. We are left with what looks and controls like a Kirby game, but lacks the attention to detail and fun that made the series classic.

    WDC is the 'Tetris' of driving games. Instead of bombarding the senses with helicopters, exaggerated sunsets, and flying jumps, everything in WDC feels decisively low-key and ultimately adds to the Zen-like quality.
