    Four Swords is the perfect multiplayer Zelda game. It combines amazing cooperative gameplay with competitive gameplay at the same time. The end result is a multiplayer game like no other. You’ll be up with your friends late into the night trying to save the Princess in this four-player frenzy.

    No, the game isn't perfect, with some minor graphical draw-backs and game-length issues, but it is as close as you can get to a perfect game without being perfect. Overall Metroid Prime is the perfect example of what a game should be. Graphically, sound-wise, gameplay-wise it is just spectacular.

    The Wind Waker is the sum of all Nintendo's talent and skill as a video game maker all blended together in one unforgettable piece of software. Not only does The Wind Waker surpass several other Zelda games ever made, it surpasses just about every other piece of software ever made.

    Tetris is a classic game that has never been topped, and Tetris DS continues that proud tradition.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    One of the best RPG's this entire generation. It is far from the typical "Final Fantasy" clone, and makes me wish I've noticed the Tales' series of games earlier.
    • 92 Metascore
    • 94 Critic Score
    Its gameplay is overwhelmingly addicting. We can't put it down – even after we've beaten it. It's definitely safe to say, Super Mario Sunshine is another classic installment in the Mario series.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    Brimming with features and ease of use, Ultimate Card Games may not be groundbreaking in terms of content, but it is the best cards package ever put together in a video game and should be in any pocket fan’s GBA.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 93 Critic Score
    An absolutely amazing game for anyone who has ever even considered liking arcade space shooters. The action is intense, the visuals are great, the sound is solid, and there is plenty to keep you coming back for more.

    Every once in a while, a game or system comes along that redefines gaming in some small way, and DKJB proudly stands in this category.

    Meteos is without a doubt, THE puzzle game to own for the Nintendo DS. It's unique, can only be done this way using the touch screen, is a fantastic presentation for the graphics and audio, and a full, exciting game can be played with just a few minutes to spare.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    With the DS's unique capabilities as the star attraction put into a single package with significant gameplay time and replayability, this is one game that should be in everybody's collection.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    It has a compelling and well written story line. Playing through it is truly a joy.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    The main adventure will keep you busy for dozens of hours, but the mini-games and Vs. mode are nice extra treats as well.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 88 Critic Score
    A moderate improvement over the original Day of Reckoning.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    With a variety of gameplay in the single-player mode, improved and even longer than the first title, C.T. Special Forces 2 is just the right mix of action for handheld gamers.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    As long as you are not in tournament mode, the game can be the most normal game of tennis you've ever played, or the most ridiculous one you've ever played.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 86 Critic Score
    Retains so much of the original that anyone who loved the first one will still love this one, and anyone who hated the first one will likewise hate this one.
    • 86 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    All of the maps are completely different, and offer different types of play, which makes replay value soar.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    Its storyline is for sure one of the best on the GameCube – perhaps one of the best story’s every told in a video game.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It's one of the best compilation titles on the GameCube, ranking in far ahead of "Sonic Mega Collection" or "Midway Arcade Treasures."
    • 80 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    It is easily one of the best platformers on GBA.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    A very compelling and entertaining adventure. It has its flaws – some fetch quest-like moments and very short – but the good far outweighs the bad.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 85 Critic Score
    If they spent less time on the bad ideas and more on time stuff that WWE and GameCube fans have been begging for, this game could have been much, much better than it is.

    Experienced gamers will blow through Alien Hominid rather quickly, but you'll be ready to jump right back to the beginning as soon as the credits finish rolling.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    While no technical masterpiece and a rehash of sorts, Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Party Game$'s brilliant mix of unique and clever microgames makes this one a winner.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 84 Critic Score
    There is an incredible amount of replay value if you're willing to tackle the advanced difficulty or try a different class through the game. However, while alone, the game does lose a bit of its steam.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 82 Critic Score
    The game reminds me of "Wario Ware," except with longer mini-games and an arguably wackier presentation, which should make any gamer anticipate "Wario Ware Touched!" even more.

    • 82 Critic Score
    King Kong really gives you what it promises. Unfortunately, it doesn't give you much more. The game can be beat in about 10 hours, and there isn't much reason to play more after that.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    Even though parts of it get tiresome, the incredible physics and free-roam system will keep you interested.
    • 77 Metascore

    The game is filled with very fun platforming levels which make good use of Kim's innovative gadgets and moves. Some bosses could be a bit frustrating, and the Rufus levels are a bit dull.
