    Put all doubts about how the control scheme fits with the Wii-mote aside, and just embrace the greatness of what this "realistic" Zelda.
    • 96 Metascore
    • 98 Critic Score
    The best part of Zelda games is having an entire world to explore however and whenever you want to. The latest incarnation completely delivers in this area!

    Offering 20 to 25 hours of splendid gameplay, RE4 is undeniably the greatest survival horror title on the market, and my new favorite game of all time.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 96 Critic Score
    Besides the game play extras and combat changes, both games thrive visually and the music sounds fantastic.

    Dawn of Sorrow is easily the killer app of the system’s short existence. If you own a DS, you must go out and buy this game. It’s more than worth your money.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    While some may argue that it’s too short or lacks difficulty, I definitely have to disagree. I had my fair share of deaths and the replay value is heightened significantly if you collect the myriad of coins disseminated throughout the game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    It’s just as good as Dawn of Sorrow, and has the online modes to help promote the longevity.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    The graphics in those cut scenes are better than what we had really seen in a tactical RPG up to that point.
    • 97 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    The unique gameplay is so wonderfully put together, never had I had so much fun playing a video game. The gorgeous graphics and the awe-inspiring music just add to the experience.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    Other than playing on a harder difficulty, or during an attempt to recieve 100% completion (if that was missed out on the first time through), there isn't much of a replay value to the game.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Control worries aside, I found tons to enjoy from the many mini games available to even the weak multiplayer mode.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    I’m still amazed at how full that tiny little DS card is full of information. I still haven’t even explained the extra modes.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    If you have the ability to use the WFC and own a DS, I can’t stop recommending purchasing MKDS.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    If you enjoy the genre like me, or if you like handheld games with 'a lot of tapping', you simply can't go wrong with the quirky troupe that is the Elite Beat Agents.
    • 90 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    The gameplay is next to perfect and truly fun to learn, and eventually, master. The graphics are still some of the best to this day and the sound lives up the expectations for a Star Wars game.
    • 93 Metascore

    Viewtiful Joe is an artistic playground. As an artist myself I can say this is interactive art.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 92 Critic Score
    Everything fans of the series would want after the disappointment from "Warrior Within."
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Astounding.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Whether you're a fan of Final Fantasy or RPG's, you owe it to yourself to pick this game up, especially if you haven't played it before in the other two versions.
    • 91 Metascore

    It starts a bit on the slow side, but I still stand firm in my belief that Resident Evil is one of the strongest video games on the market.
    • 85 Metascore

    The campaign mode generally lasts anywhere from 25 to 40 hours.

    Old-school gamers rejoice-VJ2 is somewhat of a second coming.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    But don't let the linearity fool you--Partners in Time is an excellent game no matter what platform it's running on.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A game that will last forever. Regardless of whether you have human friends or are just playing the game alone, it will likely last you a long, long time.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    With virtually every facet of DJ featuring a sizeable amount of quality gameplay, it is no understatement to say that Activision’s latest offering is an undeniable success.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Graphically, the game manages to trump even Metroid Fusion, which itself outdoes Super Metroid.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    From the side scrolling gameplay to the unique level design to superb audio I really enjoyed Donkey Kong Country 2 as I never had the opportunity to play the original on the SNES, I'm glad I did now.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    It takes a lot of time and effort to have the best experience. If you are like me and eat this stuff up like breakfast, Sacred Stones will last you 70 hours at a bare minimum.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Laced between the confusing story, unique gameplay, and interesting sounds is SUDA 51's dream of a game that breaks all boundaries and really tries something new and innovative.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    The unique multiplayer modes offer a different type of multiplayer experience and can be a ton of fun for long term FPS fans. In addition (I reiterate this point), the style of gameplay is so rarely seen that I suggest everyone at least try it out before turning away from it.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A larger variety of weapons than that in "Timesplitters 2," as well as more levels, characters, and challenges make this game very impressive and a welcomed addition to the series.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Repetition presides, but the amount of things you can do keep you coming back. The controls are very simple and they only encourage you to play more because it is so easy to handle.
    • 93 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    Every character, human, demon, lizard, and Hylian, moves with realism.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    While the story is nothing to pay attention to, the gameplay is what really shines here.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    A great DS game. The short and relatively easy story mode is still a blast to play through, and the other modes make it a fun game.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    There's very little wrong with it (although that lack of a save feature is irritating) and a lot to love. If you like pinball games, this is the one to grab.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Despite the fact that Rocket Slime is somewhat of a Zelda rip-off, it’s still a solid title.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    One of the few remakes out there that capture the original experience without ruining it.
    • 88 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    One of the best GBA games I have ever played.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Feels like racing Hotwheels with your buddies on steroids, speed, and a whole lot of caffeine.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    If you want a game you can play for an hour or so a day for the rest of your days, then this is the game for you.
    • 91 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Luckily, the sound more than makes up for any graphical shortcomings.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Those feint of heart and stomach need not bother, there is enough blood and gore in this title to bring to Dracula his knees in nirvana.

    I guarantee that anyone who enjoyed "X-Men Legends" will love Rise of Apocalypse.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Everything looks great, from the character models to the environments. The game also has an amazing sense of speed.

    Gun
    I wasn't sure what to expect from Gun, but I came out having a blast. While it's a short ride, beginning to end is an amazing experience.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Of course, it could very much be sleeper hit of the year or the most underrated game of all time.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Despite having an incredibly short adventure mode (8 missions which last about 5 minutes each), Nanostray brings a surprising amount of content to the table.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    Any Sonic fan, or fans of sidescrollers in general, would be a fool to pass this game up. Sonic Rush is truly a blast to play and a fine example of what Sonic games should be all about.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A great launch title for the Wii. It demonstrates the Wii’s controls perfectly, even though it goes a bit over the top in the mini-games.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    A really good game. However, it is definitely not for everyone, as the general lack of difficulty and slow start would put off many people, if the image hasn't already.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    This is just a great game, hands down. It is a shame that some of the aspects like actually having to put effort into getting a Game Over remained put, but like I said before, this is a game geared more for our little brothers and sisters.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    While you may find some of the game’s extras a bit gimmicky (as I did), they still offer a great deal of creativity.

    When it’s all said and done, Meteos is by far the best puzzle game for the Nintendo DS platform.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Uses the Nintendo DS’s touch screen beautifully, and also has an awesome concept in its hands.
    • 76 Metascore

    While not without flaws, SFC most definitely brings the franchise backs to its former glory.

    Circle is a surprisingly deep game and certainly sets the bar for its descendant games.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    Sure the difficulty of later puzzles can get on your nerves but all you need to do is take a breather and set your head straight and everything will be fine.

    After completing the main story, another 50 levels in the main dungeon are unlocked. Not to mention the dialogue changes from playing with different characters and summons.

    If you want replay value, then you probably want to count the 15 times you have replayed a level before beating it.

    • 82 Critic Score
    Through and through, Donkey Kong Country 3 is a port of the SNES original title. While a fun title to play every once in a while, the short, linear levels can get a bit boring at times.
    • 74 Metascore

    If you enjoy Naruto or fighters in general, you can't go wrong with one of the final GameCube releases before Revolution day is upon us.
    • 80 Metascore

    This game is unbelievably fun, despite certain longevity issues along with recycled boss levels.
    • 69 Metascore

    If you're new to the series, this game warmly welcomes you with its brutally easy difficulty. But steroid-using DDR veterans will dominate this game in a couple of hours, and won't give it a second thought.

    If you've got the patience and the drive, Mega Man X Collection is a fun title that challenges your gaming skills and gives you a good history lesson in the process.

    The diverse characters and humorous outbursts that occur in the courtroom are enough to make Phoenix Wright an enjoyable experience and what helps keep the player interested into it.

    Electroplankton is also one of those games for people looking for a change in game design or a form of innovation.

    I can’t help but say this, but Nintendogs will get boring if you don’t have others around to play it with. After you’ve mastered tricks, beat the competitions, and unlocked some cute accessories for your little puppy, everything will just be the same old thing again.

    XIII just happens to be another unfortunate instance of a game that's great but no one bought.

    As soon as you can get the hang of grabbing guards and completing the objectives, the game will fly by in a whirl of fun.

    The quick pick-up-and-play gameplay technicality will immediately pull you in. The cutesy graphics and sound set the game’s atmosphere nicely.

    As I like to repeat, if you have trouble with micro-management, Lost in Blue isn’t for you.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 78 Critic Score
    Overly simplistic graphics and sound should have been worked on to make the final package feel more like an actual game, but alas it still felt like a glorified tech demo in the end.

    Frogger isn’t for everyone. While it’s aimed at kids, I find it funny that many kids won’t have the patience that is required to last throughout the levels.

    It doesn’t quite measure up to current DS standards in the presentation area, but other than that, it provides a very fun, laid back gaming experience.

    True Swing Golf easily outdoes Tiger Woods in the entertainment department, even if it doesn't host the excitement that the PGA can bring.

    I suppose the best part of this game is the fact that it’s the first Tetris game in years that doesn’t suck, which unfortunately, is actually an accomplishment.
    • 71 Metascore

    The mixture of simple platforming and stealth make for an enjoyable experience, not to mention the fact that it’s a pleasure to look at.

    Magnetica is surely a decent piece of software to commence Touch Generations. While the whole 'being approachable by anyone' deal isn't entirely accurate here, the game is definitely something that many can delve right into.

    Break’em All is certainly worth a purchase, especially if you're an old-school gamer. It offers classic arcade action when wanting to kill some time.

    If you've heartily devoured Ruby and Sapphire, however, you're probably better off waiting until the next full-fledged new adventure to check out the latest improvements.

    Even if its plot isn't original, its concept most definitely is. It's got a few major gameplay problems (namely boredom), but there's not too many flaws in its presentation.

    This is a great game to have if you enjoyed the Advance War or Fire Emblem games. While it isn't as good as those two games, the engine takes parts from both of the above-mentioned games and makes a great play for around 24 missions.
    • 79 Metascore

    Truly a great game. It's one of the best adventure titles for the Gamecube, and one that was horribly unnoticed.

    It's mostly been done before and done well. 07 is really no different. You'll undoubtedly have a good time, and the game will entertain for a good while, but déjà vu will slowly permeate the whole experience. That's not necessarily a terrible thing though.
