    It mixes strategy, platformer, shoot-em-up, puzzler and everything else to deliver to you, the gamer, possibly the best game ever created.

    If there is such a thing as a perfect game, then this is it.
    • 88 Metascore

    A whole new level in FPS gaming and I think everyone should get it. It is better than both "Goldeneye" and "Perfect Dark," and even better than "Halo."

    It is very well made, challenging, long and so amazingly atmospheric. Sadly, there is a small voice at the back of my head, when ever I see or hear something lifted from Prime, nagging at me, asking why Retro couldn't have just put a tiny bit more effort in and given us a completely new game.

    Exactly what a sequel should be about: Genuine improvement over the original, emphasising what was liked, removing what wasn’t and gaining new ideas.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 95 Critic Score
    Perhaps the deepest and most immersive game I have ever played. The community aspect is on a par with any MMORPG you care to mention, which is a hell of an achievement for an offline console game.

    Apart from a few, more or less insignificant, flaws this game shines or rather consumes all light and delivers an epic story and an experience that hasn't been seen yet on the GameCube and one that hasn't ever quite been realised on any other console.

    There is no word to express how fantastic this game is. It combines outstanding graphics with loads of modes and characters, a good soundtrack, and brilliant, brilliant gameplay. Not only that, but the amount of stuff to unlock is unbelievably huge, and the game is also extremely addictive.

    Few words can explain the sheer joy of playing it, because it's constantly throwing up new things to marvel at. And it just feels so affirming to play a game this confident, this well-crafted, this, well, fun.

    If you're a fan of Resident Evil then playing this game will be like a dream for you. This is how Capcom must have wanted to do it the first time but couldn't due to limiting technology of the time they got the idea. I guess you could say RE came before it's time…kind of like Leonardo de Vinci making plans for a helicopter.

    This is a hard game, and it will take you a lot of time to complete if you hope to collect all the gold medals in the game and find all the tech upgrades.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    It’s a great laugh in 4-player and the 1-player Championship mode is well tough to beat.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Its length is a slightly worrying factor but it’s not that bad, after all its quality not quantity and this game is quality in leaps and bounds.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Load times do not exist in this game, no waiting for courses to load, no nothing.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The first level is no pushover, yet immensely entertaining and freeform, as is the entire game. This is a must have, unless the site of blood makes you squeamish.

    Nintendo have taken the strategy genre into a whole new direction, and the result is an absolutely stunning experience that will make you sad to see it end.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    A nice single player game, but a great multiplayer game. [Multiplayer review]
    • 92 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Orchestra-style music and finely tuned sound effects liven up the battlefield quite dramatically and are executed extremely well; I just simply love the music for the Pokemon Stadium stage.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Sure this game lacks a bit when it comes to the foot levels but the other single player levels and multiplayer modes will make you overlook the issue.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 91 Critic Score
    Besides a couple of camera issues every now and then and the game's short length I can't say a lot of bad things about this game. The gameplay is solid and easy to learn, the controls are intuitive, it has a wonderful atmosphere.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    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 very best DS launch title, and is practically guaranteed to keep you entertained for months. A must-have.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The DS has had a lot of puzzlers in a short space of time, but none quite as amazing and unique as this.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Kirby truly is an outstanding game. It just takes everything the DS can do, throws it together and makes it work. The controls, the level design and the presentation are astounding.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    This is an awesome game, with a huge, huge scope; to its credit, it pulls everything off without a hitch.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    The innovative KO style of the fights and the inventive way of using the crowd and the environment to lay the smack down is very satisfying.
    • 87 Metascore

    If you've already played a Mario Kart game, Double Dash is still worth days of your time. However, it might lose its appeal sooner than other versions did, because for ninety percent it's just more of the same.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    An incredibly fast paced sports game with the intention of causing as many broken bones as possible. A great laugh on your own but with 2-3 friends it becomes an absolute hoot!
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Oh and that password feature I just don't get why it's there and why you have to use it to replay the avalanche tracks. That's the biggest downside I can think of, why couldn't beating the avalanche tracks just unlock them in the Time Trail mode is mind boggling.

    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.
