    Don’t be fooled by the Muppet brand – Muppet Pinball Mayhem is a solid pinball game that will have you coming back for more.

    Donkey Konga is a rare, fun, campy game that can cross gender lines and close age gaps. It is a great party game for 1 or 100 players, and the congas just look too damn cool to not get this game ASAP! [JPN Import]

    The game could have been a tad longer and used more of the cartoon characters. This game will take an average gamer about five hours to beat and probably a bit more with some replay value.

    The A.I. in the game varies and can either be a push over or incredibly hard. The races will be very close if you are in the top position.

    A sign that Nintendo is listening to the fans! The only major downside is that the graphics show their age. [Import]

    Where the game sells the most are the mini-games like chase and atlasphere – they are really unique and exciting to play.

    The visuals are pretty darn good. Characters are large enough to see some decent detail, and they animate nicely. The levels are equally impressive.

    From the story, to the music to graphics to the gameplay, Rayman 3 is fun to play.

    I was blown away by how good this game was. It really does take surfing and make it into a fun gaming experience. The main factor is how each wave has its own identity in look, dimensions, and more, just like in real life.

    Guys who are worried about their masculinity might cringe, but girls, and guys who are interested in being entertained, will probably enjoy some aspect of the game.

    The quirkiness of the game, along with its innovative premise, promises a pleasant time to be had by all the family.

    A landmark title with gameplay better than ever before and great play mechanics that defy portable gaming.

    There’s a lot crammed in that small GCN disc, so if you get the game, don’t forget to browse around and find the neat additions.

    If you’re a Medal of Honor fan, it’s a must have, although I would be prepared for a little disappointed. If you’re an FPS fan, there are probably better games out there for you, but if you’re not big on strategy, then it’s definitely worth a shot.

    It's a throwback to days gone by and is successful in what it sets out to do. It's a fun game overall, where thinking comes second and blowing the aliens away is the primary goal.

    If you pick up Kirby Air Ride expecting a great racing experience, you're not going to find it, go buy "F-Zero GX." The level themes seem more like platformer worlds than racing environments.

    If you're not into the idea of constantly shooting and blowing stuff up, this may not be the game for you. Up to this point I have used the word shooting sixteen times in this review, and there's a reason for that. That is the bulk of the game.

    While it’s not a perfect port, R-Type III still plays like it was made for the GBA. The few shortcomings are forgivable since the immortal gameplay of the original hasn’t changed.

    The game may be boring for the casual strategy fan, and may not have enough depth for the hardcore strategy fan so it hits that horrible middle point that most companies strive to avoid.

    As much as I just ripped it apart, Bustin’ Out is a very solid little game. It lacks the infinite replay value of the other Sims games, but it still outlasts most Game Boy games.

    The selling point is the automatic save system. You can play as long as you want, and you won’t miss anything important and can’t cheat in your business.

    A very, very good game and definitely worth a purchase. It's just a disappointment compared to the sheer greatness that was "Circle of the Moon."

    It contains solid gameplay, which involves a great amount of tactical decision-making.

    It’s well polished and has a pretty lengthy eight worlds. The power-up system is really cool and works for both novice and stronger players.

    Nothing on a technical level is incompetent in Britney’s Dance Beat, but nothing is done so well as to make it fun outside of its core audience.

    The graphics engine developed for Dark Arena is something I never expected to see on the GBA. It seems that the more developers that dig into the hardware, the more impressive it gets.

    The game itself is extremely short and can be beat in less than two hours or so; however, unlocking all the features and playing all five characters adds to the replay value.

    Definitely a unique action-hero game that has Mega Man/Bob SNES qualities and style of gameplay. It can rival some of the better-known superhero GBA games on the market today.

    If pinball play isn't your cup of tea, you may get bored or even frustrated before you get accomplished enough to unlock new tables. The bottom line is that if you are a fan of Metroid and even causally like to play pinball, you will become quickly addicted to aiding Samus in her quest to kick alien ass.

    It's dramatic and overdone in typical Burton style. You can continue where you last saved or simply quit, but I'd recommend letting Jack die at least once just so that you can witness how cool it looks.
