    This game can last forever just as long as you can recruit some friends.

    As much a joy to play now as the original ever was. What it now lacks in the single player adventure (but in all honesty, it’s not lacking much at all) is more than made up for thanks to the competitive multiplayer whilst the minigames alone make this game a must-have.

    The animations are smooth, fast and fluid. And the backgrounds are filled with detail and colour to set the mood and tone for the level brilliantly.

    The only problem in this game that will cause you some grief is the camera. It flies willy-nilly all over the screen on its own, and a lot of the time it goes to places you don't want it.

    The cube version has had an interface overhaul and great new multiplayer modes, but it's basically the same game as the GBA version...This game is all about fun and pure gameplay.

    One more thing and something I am sorely missing: backstage areas. There are none, and it is sad to see. Hopefully next year they will be included.

    As close as you will ever get to "Goldeneye" on your Cube. A brilliant storyline, superb graphics and fun gameplay make this a near-essential FPS.

    This is undoubtedly the best outing for Mr. Bond and Co. to date and the fact that it's all based around an incredibly solid engine makes it essential for any GameCube owner.

    No shabby port from the PS2, this version actually contains more than the PS2 version.

    The game is just put together so very well you’ll be surprised how much it will appeal.

    "Virtua Tennis" fans will feel right at home with Beach Spikers and new players will be blown way by its involving gameplay.

    I can't really say more than 'YOU NEED THIS TITLE' for no other reason than to prove how games should be done.

    There's absolutely nothing here to disturb or upset younger gamers so if you're a parent searching for a GameCube recommendation then this could be just what you're looking for.

    The scenery looks so stunning that it tempts you to explore every corner.

    NFSU is not quite a groundbreaker in the racing department, but is certainly a top racer.

    There's a lot to love about F-Zero GX, and the thing you will love most is that it will leave you wanting to come back for more. This game will keep you sucked in and wont let go.

    A retro classic.

    Easily the best basketball game out there for the cube.

    While not quite as polished as the mighty "TimeSplitters 2" from EIDOS, Frontline offers a great deal of FPS entertainment with an atmosphere that simply can't be beaten.

    The messiah RE fans have been prophesising...Do not expect to be sustained eternally however, an experienced gamer will burn through this game which can be completed on lower difficulties in the same amount of time as "Luigi’s Mansion."

    It's likely to become one of the most collectable and sought-after titles in years to come. As it stands, it's one of the most entertaining.

    An incredibly enjoyable game and the GBA linkup is a truly unique addition.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A lavishly beautiful, unusually innovative, daring and unique breed of action- RPG that is sometimes a little too old-fashioned for its own good and occasionally marred by teething problems.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A new style of platforming that may catch on, but since it is so short I would suggest a rental only for this one.

    If you're looking for a fresh game with a nice story, look no further, Second Sight tells a good story but doesn't let it get in the way of good gameplay.

    Once story mode is out of the way you will discover a gem of a fighter. You just have to persevere through the story. Don't give up!

    A great pick up and play game, and the Quick Start mode means you can have a fast twenty minute game if you want, or get stuck into Campaign or multiplayer instead.

    In general the game is harder then Sands of Time, and I wonder if they didn't spice it up too much, making it inaccessible for a big mass audience.

    Hiding in the shadows never has been a more thrilling experience! A welcome addition to the GC library and a classic in it's own right.

    If you are looking for an adventure of epic proportions with a sci-fi twist on pirates and that sports a classic, yet polished, RPG battle interface with some interesting innovations such as ship battles, then Skies of Arcadia Legends is definitely the game for you!
