    While the game isn't nearly as perfected and amazing as "Ocarina of Time," it still provides Nintendo fans with an epic and excellent experience.

    This is easily one of the finest and most refined GBA games to date (maybe one of the last, too). It contains a narrative that takes the audience seriously (yet provides good comic relief) and a superb cast of characters.

    The only real knock against it is its length. Coming in at four hours just does not cut it. There are multiple endings the higher the completion percentage, and the original Metroid for comparisons sake, but the brevity of the adventure hurts an otherwise great title.

    Aesthetic beauty aside, Feel the Magic is a clear-cut winner in this pond of first generation launch titles. It's a nice little challenge with a well-permeated concept, which will be something you, your friends and your family will be able to pick up and play at any given moment well into the DS's lifespan.

    With a wonderful mix of Four Swords style gameplay and a Wind Waker feel, the game takes a little something from everything and still manages to improve on it.

    This is one of the most addictive games I've played in recent years.

    Apart from virtually every aspect of gaming that Ultimate Destruction pulls off beautifully, the pure raw fun to be had with this title alone makes it worth a purchase. There's madcap enjoyment to be had here the kind of which you'd find in "Super Smash Bros. Melee."

    It's nice to see Nintendo giving away such high quality freebies like this. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say, "We want more!"

    Everything is nearly identical to what you played in Sands of Time, and in the case of combat, the bar has been raised. With a much more even balance of fighting and foot work, PoP fans should be pleased.

    THE must-own launch title. There are a couple of issues keeping it from being a definitive killer-app for the system, such as the problematic control scheme, but it’s as close as any of us could have hoped for, and certainly close enough to warrant a purchase.

    You can't help but fall in love with the little critters. Nintendogs is entertaining, innovative, and packs quite a bit of staying power thanks to all the great unlockables in the game. Believe me, when you get it, you'll fall in love with this incredible, complex game and the little furry pal that goes with it. [JPN Import]

    It combines great visuals, good sound effects and good overall music, and is solid as a pinball game.

    The visuals in Mario Kart: Super Circuit are mind numbingly perfect.

    It’s franchise mode is deeper than ever, and gameplay more solid than ever. Once again, EA and Tiburon have topped themselves in all categories.

    Neversoft succeeded by sacrificing some of the polish that could have made the game a better by a smidgen. The framerate and lack of astonishing detail are valid complaints, but should not deter any Gamecube owner from buying this game.

    Would I be getting a great classic Mega Man game with minimal Role Playing Game elements, or would I get more of a true Battle Network type game? I was quite satisfied to find out that this game has a near perfect balance of both.

    It is as solid as past installments, only not as amazing and shocking.

    I can't say enough about Jazz Jackrabbit on the GBA. Jaleco and Game Titan have created a brand new experience while still keeping Jazz's classic gameplay intact.

    Amazingly addicting, completing charming.

    The game plays perfectly, just like the original. However, that is the problem. The game has nothing new, nothing different, nothing innovative, and nothing that changes the gameplay from original except the targeting computer, which you are penalized for using!!

    Every RPG fans' dream of a game. It has some of the best gameplay, an engaging story, great music (although the quality detracts from this), and hours of gameplay to keep you playing into the long nights.

    The best arcade racing experience available on the GameCube. If your a fan of the first than this is a must buy.

    A highly addictive and satisfying game. Super Smash Bros. is a classic game for the Nintendo 64. If you haven't played it or its successor, and there certainly aren't many of you kinds of people, what are you waiting for? Do it!

    The replay value is great and this game will last forever.

    Even though Duke Nukem turned heel and became more of a world hero instead of solo killer, this game still has the same good fun that you would expect from a Duke Nukem game but without the bathroom jokes and strippers.

    When it comes to sports games, nothing can really beat "Tiger Woods" in the realism department, but nothing can really beat Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour in the fun department.

    The amount of fun that it provides is unbelievable, and its simple, arcade-style gameplay is wonderful.

    It's amazing to think that a guy like me, the type who used to hate NASCAR with a corrupt passion, has actually found love in a game like this.

    If you have the patience to learn it and can look past no licensees or real wrestlers (although this can be fixed in CAW), then Fire Pro can be a very rewarding wrestling experience.

    Once again, the combination of Sega and monkeys has resulted in an extremely addicting game. Don’t pass this game up.
