    While I found just about everything likable, I never really felt "into" the game. This is probably due to my general distaste for sports titles.

    Donkey Kong has never been more unique and ingenious in terms of gameplay. However, ridiculous difficulty, less-than-stellar multiplayer games, boring graphics, and level design that borders on the atrocious makes King of Swing seem more like Peasant of Swing.

    It's a great game but there just isn't enough to it to justify it being a buyable game, unless of course -- you're looking for a dose of nostalgia with an updated look and a neat twist.
    • 85 Metascore

    The game can be fairly tedious sometimes, but it has enough good moments and great multi-player to be a fun game.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    The main game is fun, depite being easy and short, and the added content from unlocking items adds a good amount to the title’s lifespan.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 76 Critic Score
    But what is most important about the obvious simplicity of everything this game has to offer is that it really is just an enjoyable experience, flat out. You’ll find yourself trying to improve your old scores for the sheer joy and self-satisfaction. That is all you need to know to realize that this game is a fun one.

    If you’re thirsting for something else after playing "Advance Wars: Dual Strike," this game will easily fill your tactical appetite.

    Super Mario World was a historic move for the Mario franchise that deserves recognition. You certainly won't regret picking this one up.

    Yeah, it's a strange game.

    Tales of Phantasia will last you at least 20 hours, probably closer to 30 hours, though. There are a lot of side quests to fulfill, but the older game design shows through and you'll probably be quite confused on where to go and what to do if you haven't played this game before.

    It's not so much that using the touch screen to control a basketball game doesn't work, it just didn't come together quite as well as it could have.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    The lack of multiplayer really hurts in the long run, but playing a shooter with the Wii-mote is an experience you definitely should have.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 74 Critic Score
    Even though it's short, and the backtracking can be tedious, I would still recommend this game. I wouldn’t recommend paying full price for it, however.

    While HMDS will not recruit many new gamers into the fray, it executes exactly where it wants to, and that is in maintaining the fundamentals of the franchise.

    A Pokemon fan will definitely get a kick out of it, especially if they like the collect-a-thon side quest.

    Who needs the outside world when you can get some decent exercise in your very living room or bedroom? It may not be anything rigorous, but it'll get your body moving in ways that it normally may not.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It’s deep, full of fun minigames, and definitely not one to slack off and show sloppy Wii controls.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The records and trading are groundbreaking for a sports title and has set a standard for all sports games that will be released for the DS.

    Perhaps the greatest asset of Brain Age is the addition of Sudoku, a famous number puzzle that is gaining popularity quickly. It contains a wide range of difficulty, meaning it can be fairly simple or very difficult.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    The concepts behind Tiger Woods DS are solid, and the controls follow the goal of innovative new ways to play games. Unfortunately, the controls that EA shoves at you are so inconsistent that the gameplay is greatly hampered.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    A decent single player and full use of the DS’s features along with a fair amount of content makes Tak worth at least trying out if you really like platformers. I just wish that the racing portions were better done.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It's actually a decent clone of Castlevania gameplay mixed with good ship combat.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    I'm rather disgusted with all those other media establishments and their unfair razing of what's a truly decent game. Again, it's not perfect, and will likely frustrate the hell out of you at some points. But try to work through that and give Red Steel a chance, you may find a hidden layer of entertainment that those guys apparently didn't.
    • 66 Metascore

    You may think I'm full of BS, but Pac-Man World 3 will last you anywhere from 8-12 hours.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    I love the controls, but the lack of intelligence in your friendly and foe A.I. is annoying, and the GCN version really has no replay unless you love the missions.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    Feels very much like a downgraded mix of Midways "NFL Blitz" and "Madden."
    • 61 Metascore
    • 72 Critic Score
    It will make for a good experience if you have the friends to play with, but the camera issues and lack of differences between characters don’t give it as much quality or longevity as other party action games.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    The graphics reek of four years ago, and animation is horrible.

    Those who aren’t fans of mindlessly pressing a button to gain another level will be better off with another game this holiday season.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    When it comes down to it, I'd much rather take a short game with a great idea rather than a lengthy one without any innovation.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    This would have been a great RPG had it not used all the "uniqueness" that makes it annoying rather that a classic.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Multiplayer mode is a blast, however single-player mode is useless when compared to the aforementioned.

    • 79 Metascore

    A good game, but it has it faults. Graphics aren't nearly as good as the series is known for and the slowdown really gets to you in some parts of the game.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    A decent arcade soccer game with too little Mario. The developers could have put considerably more Mario-elements into the game other than the characters and the title.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    EA is only good at making games if it incorporates some type of ball, and the movies are still far better than the games.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    It’s simplistic and easy, but if you have a friend it can be a good option to the other Wii racing games. Although I’d stick with Excite Truck, those looking for more speed in their Wii could see Cars as more unique approach.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Critic Score
    Volcano Island is nothing spectacular, but at the same time, it's a solid game that is fun for more than just kids to play, just don't expect it to last very long.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    The story adds a little bit of flair to a solid control system and some good graphics.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Much like its console counterpart, gameplay will get repetitive. Unforgivable enemy fights cause an excessive amount of cheap deaths, and the crushing difficulty does all but help the situation.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Sure the FMVs look incredible and unnecessarily violent, but there aren't enough of them.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Overall, choosing whether you want to buy LostMagic or not is really dependent on two things. One is how much you want the excellent rune drawing, and the other is how much you don’t want to deal with the incompetent ally AI.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    In the end, GoF is an action game aimed specifically at younger players. There's simply not enough diversity to keep a more seasoned gamer entertained for long periods of time.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    Although there’s glitches-a-plenty and very little tracks, you’ll be able to find something in RRDS that’s non-existent in "Asphalt: Urban GT"... a good time.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    I was apprehensive when I first started playing this title. The complexity was a turn off at first, but I learned my way around the game in no time. The subtle approach that the storyline takes will ease you in.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 68 Critic Score
    There are a good number of entertaining moments, but the frustration can really hurt one's enjoyment. It's definitely for the hardcore gamer, and those that enjoy doing multiple things at once when playing a game.

    Cooking Mama saves the data progressively, so it’s incredibly easy to boot up, cook up a couple dishes, and shut down.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    I feel as though $50 in an overcharge for what you're getting. The game itself is under ten hours long (just including the story missions).
    • 63 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll isn't really a bad game. It's just that there are other versions of the franchise that are much better.

    While Toadstool Tour manages to be good, it certainly isn't great, and you'd have more fun with "Tiger Woods."
    • 54 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    The presentation is nice and colorful, not to mention that the puzzles are quite unique, but the game just doesn't feel as fun as the DS game did. It's not that bad of a choice if you are looking for your old school mix this holiday season, but it could use some work too.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    I can describe the overall feel of this game in one word: repetitive. Levels, enemies, graphics, music, almost everything feels repeated at least once in this game. It’s hard to even give this a rental, as the game lasts a few hours at most.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    Definitely a throwback to the arcade days, being almost identical to the arcade original. The new gameplay aspects add a little spice to the formula, but don’t add a whole lot of content overall.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 66 Critic Score
    This game would be better if Sega just released Sonic CD for the GCN alone with Vectorman as an unlockable, but only for $20. Instead we get a bunch of lame filler material that is best forgotten.

    With a little more work and care on the WayForward's s part, Sigma Star Saga could have been up there with the many 16-bit classics that it was inspired by. Unfortunately, the developer just didn't manage to follow through.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    OTH is nothing new, but nothing incredibly bad. If you're looking for a simple drive down leisure lane, then this is it. If you're looking for an overall competent game that adds a little humor to boot, then here you go. Just don't expect anything revolutionary.
    • 55 Metascore

    Unlike most arcade-style racers, your opponents make use of EVERYTHING, just like you can and should.

    Feels more like an expansion pack than a real sequel to Donkey Konga, and I would've liked to have seen the problems of the original fixed to some degree in its descendant. Sadly this is not the case.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 64 Critic Score
    It's hard to recommend this game to anyone because being a fan of the series doesn't change the fact that this game is too easy, too short and loses its freshness after only a few chapters.

    Fans of Shrek will be glad to hear that a decent Shrek game is now available for them to play on the go, but ultimately this game just isn’t engaging or fun.
    • 73 Metascore

    The GBA just isn't made to support this much combat variety at the kind of pace Revenge of the Sith requires you to act.
    • 50 Metascore

    X-Men: The Official Game is another unfortunate example of a movie-licensed game endeavor that just doesn't execute.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    Sure Yoshi was extremely innovative with its unique controls and I had fun but when does innovation mean that the overall game play experience to painfully short and lackluster? I felt cheated and so will tons of other DS players.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 62 Critic Score
    There are a couple of unlockable extras, but players probably won't be playing this much after beating it the first time.

    There are far too many flaws for me to recommend Rogue Agent and have a good conscious, but it does show that the FPS genre can be done on the DS.

    Slow-paced and lackluster.

    Street Racing Syndicate had a good chance of being something special. But thanks to a poorly implemented driving system, really crappy audio and much too easy difficulty, this isn't worth big bucks.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The fighting becomes repetitive incredibly quickly, and after you've beaten the game, it can be put on the shelf with most GBA games as it has little to no replay value.

    A mediocre story just doesn't cut it anymore, and this one is especially mediocre because they are presenting a story everyone knows and do nothing to spice it up to keep us interested.

    This is more a Chunsoft dungeon game than a Pokémon game, and a lot of the Pokémon franchise is just slapped on this title for some quick profit.
    • 56 Metascore

    I had a bit of fun in the battles for the first few scenarios, but lost it as the game dragged on. The one problem that plagues everything in this game: repetitiveness.
    • 87 Metascore

    Konami really put too much effort into "improving" the graphics engine (and ruined it in the process) while ignoring the other, possibly more important aspects of the game.
    • 49 Metascore

    Unfortunately, anyone that's been playing video games for the last few years will only become bored from the low difficulty and repetitive nature.
    • 46 Metascore

    Why stick to an old formula when it’s not as fun compared to games of the current generation? Still, there can be some nostalgic fun with Rampage, so it isn’t a complete write-off.

    It will certainly entertain the younger crowd, and probably fans of the show as well, but if you don't fit into those categories, I would probably look for my GBA fix somewhere else.

    Once you finish the game (it will only take a few hours) there is absolutely nothing left to accomplish. It's not worth the full price of the game.

    By no means a terrible game, Madagascar is nothing more than a little above average. The only reason I even credit it with that is because I really enjoyed it for an hour. After that, the sloppiness just becomes too much to bear.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 56 Critic Score
    I honestly see no real reason to buy this game. Unless you only own a GCN and desperately want to play the Spies vs. Mercs minigame, then I would advise you to get the console version.

    I hated this game. Now, if you are a younger person or a fan of the show (Even though you won't probably have kept reading past the first mean comment), just throw out all I said, because this game was meant for you.

    My overall experience with That's So raven was horrific and once I finished the game in under 3 hours I almost didn't feel like playing games anymore at all.
