    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.

    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.

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

    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]

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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."

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

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

    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.

    The game is naturally fast paced, which only means it is more fun. You have to think fast and have good reflexes. Personally, I love the game.

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

    This game can have loads of excitement. One of the main reasons is that the controls are excellent and it is easy to pull off major combos without a lot of effort. However, the game is still going to be hard to master.

    If you are a fan of the series you will eat this one up because it’s not a port. Instead, it’s a good original game of the Mega Man saga that will take you ten to twenty hours to beat. However, it will definitely frustrate those who are not good at games or someone that does not like hard games.

    It plays like an absolute dream. Sometimes I forgot I was playing on my GBA.

    It’s addictive and much more varied than the original...The combination of the RPG aspects and the real-time/turn-based battle system is the main draw for this unique game.

    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.

    A very addictive and lengthy FPS.

    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.

    A culmination of intelligent programming, good game design and fun. The game is a technical marvel that must not only be seen, but heard.

    There’s not a great deal that can be done to improve the 2D shooter’s basic premise, but Iridion II raises the bar by including superior audio, very decent graphics, and a good variety of both new (auto-upgrade) as well as classic (super-shot and smart bombs) gameplay features.

    There is just enough of a story for Resident Evil fans to play the game and find out new information, but there certainly could have been much more in terms of the story.

    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.

    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!!

    Almost perfect. Some of the challenges are a bit difficult but they help build your skill level. And although the graphics aren't stunning they are above adequate for this game, and are still very good.

    This game was created with gamers in mind it combines a great mix of fun with a great story and best of all a franchise character to suck you in.
