    It has all those essential elements that good games need, and all those elements are slightly less than perfect.

    Although it doesn't break any new grounds in originality (like Mario 64), Mario Kart 64 is a great addition to the N64 line-up. The solid graphics, good sound, and addictive gameplay--coupled with features like being able to race yourself (from a former race) in a special ghost mode--make you want to play it forever.

    The replay value on Starfox64 is pretty much endless, unless you consider the route difficulties and level tasks terrible game design.

    After the smoke clears, and the nuclear radiation fades, Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter is one of the finest games in video game history. It combines every element that makes a good game flawlessly.

    An excruciating experience that will bear some of the most rewarding gameplay experiences ever crafted... Quest has once again pulled off another masterpiece in the flawless Ogre Battle Saga.

    Sonic Rush may be the best side-scroller on the DS so far. The level design is inspired, and the rush of speed, to use an appropriate word, that should be inherent in Sonic games is not only present, but may be at its most intense yet.

    Maybe the game relies on the magic system a little too much, but it's that system that keeps Lost Magic from ever being lost.

    Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is not just a fun play, it's a good read. It's a classic PC-styled adventure with an emphasis on story and realized in a great way on DS hardware.

    With bolstered controls and a development system as deep as most RPGs, Tiger Woods is still the game beat when it comes to golf.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 89 Critic Score
    Sam & Max: Season One may just be the best. It's a smooth, smart point-and-click, simple when appropriate, perplexing when needed, and quite possibly the funniest game you'll ever play.

    While a few faults may hold back the score from being perfect, LostWinds is a refreshing and almost nostalgic experience that will leave a player excited, but still asking for more.

    Perhaps the strongest and most-heard criticism that can be leveled at Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is that it's more of the same, and indeed, it is. Yet there's a slightly grander sense of scale in everything-- the settings, story, puzzles, minigames, graphics and soundtrack all feel amped up just a notch.

    Valid proof that "coming up short" can still translate into "a hell of a lot of fun."

    While it's essentially "Marble Madness" with better graphics and a few twists in the game design, it feels much more than that.

    While its flashy new successor doesn’t innovate quite like the original did, it does in fact make leaps and bounds above its predecessor through improved gameplay mechanics, fantastic new features, and a new coat of polish in the audio and visual departments.

    Offers some excellent gameplay and a fun multiplayer racing experience.

    Having played this game for a relatively long time, I have to warn that even though you will get your money's worth and many, many hours of play, it does end up getting very tedious after a couple of weeks.

    It’s an excellent mission to run through over the Christmas holidays and the production quality of EA's Medal of Honor series blows a lot of games on the Cube right out of the water.

    Sports fans will enjoy the level of off the field depth and control scheme depth here.

    The writing and extreme sense of humor will definitely get fans turning their heads and exploring every inch of every level. There's a good 15-20 hours available in this title and any Simpsons fan should cherish every minute.

    This game is about two steps away from being called "Bam Margera Pro Skater," seeing as he is the main pro skater you see in the game.

    It offers a different experience than "Perfect Dark" and "TWINE" and Turok 3 is worth a look.

    2D gaming fans of all sorts will enjoy Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow immensely.

    It's not just intuitive to wave your hands around to play football, but it's also fun. Throwing the ball and seeing the motion echoed on-screen can give a huge sense of empowerment.

    Anyone, of any age, can pick up the Wii remote and zap a few cute little beasts. To make a long story short, for all those looking for a rich gameplay experience on their Wii, Elebits might be for you.

    Using the pixels of the past, Inti Creates has made Mega Man 9 a title that easily stacks up with the franchise’s greats, such as Mega Man 2 or Mega Man 3.
    • 73 Metascore

    It's worth a look if you're wanting a good game; it's a must buy if you're a fan of the genre or series.

    Heron: Steam Machine is an enjoyable puzzle game and sits well with its many compatriots on the WiiWare service.

    These mini-games are one of the only things about Wario Land 4 that I didn't like. In a nutshell, they're repetitive and don't give enough money. Plus, the mini-games are limited in their fun factor.

    Blows any other recent incarnation out of the water.
