    Players will wonder what could have been had Nintendo and Namco implemented a deeper single player experience. Where's the season mode? Thankfully multiplayer exhibitions greatly extend the game's life.

    In the end any substantial complaints I have regarding Spryo: Season of Ice are centered on the fact that current platformers have turned into giant scavenger hunts. Those may be fun but I’ve had my fill already.

    Easier than "Mega Man Zero" but harder than most of the NES titles.

    I’m not sure why it wasn’t a little harder to beat in the end though. There are many goodies to unlock and keep you busy for a while, but it all depends on how much you like puzzle games.

    Improves in mostly all aspects of the original but the game is aging and better series are emerging to compete with MTO and THQ’s.

    I personally am not a wrestling fan, but I am a fan of the SK/Mummy movies, and enjoyed myself despite the game being mostly average.

    I admit the series is beginning to run dry in the gameplay innovation, but at its core Pokémon Emerald is still a solid RPG with pretty graphics, an overall well made game.

    The camera hampers the experience considerably, but the fun of the main game itself is still there.

    Though it lacks certain technical aspects that hard-core driving gamers may have come to expect, City Racer offers players from all walks of gaming genre a very inviting, as well as forgiving, chance to join in the video driving scene – a claim of which very few racers out there can boast.

    To somebody used to reflex-hungry games like Wario Ware or the videogame crack equivalent Meteos, Kim Possible 3 is nothing more than a platformer which could be very solid had the controls been tightened up and the audio enhanced before release. To a Kim Possible fan, however, it becomes an extension of the television show and takes on a interactive element unable to be experienced passively.

    But what about all those who can't get online? Sadly you're out of luck, because the single player is fairly repetitive and the cheap computer players don't help it.

    "It wants to be Castlevania." The double-jump, the wall-jump, double-click dash, the save-monoliths, they’re all here.

    Aesthetically, the game carries over the same visual style seen in Yoshi’s Island except that now the colors are more solid and the environment less sketchy.

    Fans of the series will like this game. It controls well, follows the story of the show almost religiously, and has some replay if you like leveling up.

    The perfect example of a good game that just takes a bit too much from other games than it should.

    I was certainly interested and entertained, but I just felt more could have been given to you.

    It lasts for about 6-10 hours, but it’s an interesting game and you will want to play it over.

    I love the way Vicarious Visions does this beginning level as a training level to get you used to the gameplay a bit and then each level progresses slowly with more difficulty.

    For the short time it lasts the game is a lot of fun and harkens back to the days of the classic 2D side-scrolling games.

    Multiplayer is less fun than trading dead bugs, and the one player game is about as linear as a novel.

    At its worst, Shadow is a solid platformer with enough fun to keep hardcore Sonic fans in one place for a few days. At its best, it's an engaging gameplay experience that isn't jaded by its otherwise glaring storyline-related setbacks.

    There are some noticeable flaws in the every department. For instance, in arcade mode there's one hard fighter and all the rest are fairly easy – I would have enjoyed more balance.

    On the whole I probably enjoyed the first one more, simply because it came first and was a new experience. Some of the levels, though, make up for it, and bring you back to that level of excitement and tension which I don't feel any other game has ever matched.

    While there are only eight levels and gameplay could be more polished (such as improved enemies and a worthwhile Multiplayer mode), Nanostray still offers everything you could expect from a shooter.

    The amount of events available makes for a busy amount of things to do, with a great multiplayer mode to complement it. The control can sometimes be a bit tight though.

    With a high sense of speed, and a wide variety of gameplay, for the first time racing feels appropriate for the handheld scene. Aside from some frustrating traffic and driving issues, the graphics, controls, style and use of touch screen really brings out the best in this oft-mediocre driving series.

    Acclaim did a good job fixing much of the problems of "All-Star Baseball 2003" with this year’s version, but they added very little to the series.

    It’s like that delicious piece of cake you receive at a party; scrumptious but anything but filling. Such is this, short indeed but an enjoyable experience while it lasts.

    The best experience you’ll have in this game is the multiplayer mode, which I played for literally hours on end.

    It has just the right mix of challenge.
