    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.

    The Two Towers the movie absolutely blew my mind. I sat in awe throughout most of the movie. EA has managed to recreate that feeling with their game. There truly is a feeling of being in the middle of an epic adventure, up against insurmountable odds, and yet pulling it off.

    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.

    The option is a huge part of college football, and Tiburon has done an extraordinary job of replicating it in NCAA Football.

    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.

    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.

    Aggressive Inline literally has become my favorite extreme sports game to date.

    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.

    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.

    I would highly recommend a rental, and around December, if history repeats itself, you should be able to find it for a fairly discounted rate and two months of season still ahead of you. That way, everybody wins.

    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.

    Overall this game is easily the best RPG on the Nintendo 64. It lives up to the greatness of the original and actually surpasses it.

    A very addictive and lengthy FPS.

    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 has everything that I could possibly want all bundled up in one nice little package: an epic quest, beautiful graphics, great music, and puzzles around every turn... It truly is that marvelous.

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

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

    One of the most unique experiences you can get in a home console today.

    The concept for the game is wholly imaginative, and I can't think of any game out there with a similar type of control to it.

    By taking a lighthearted and cartoony approach to a genre of games that was previously untouched by such antics, Poponchi succeeds in providing an altogether refreshing gameplay experience for those who are tired of the traditional elements of skateboarding games.

    Not only does this game offer probably the best multiplayer Game Boy experience since "The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords," but the story mode, challenge mode, and excellent gameplay make it a great single player experience as well.

    Overall, the gameplay in True Crime is spectacular.

    If you played and liked any of the previous NHL Hitz games, then Hitz Pro is definitely a game to get.

    The innovation that the Tony Hawk series has been so desperately searching for. It’s pure skating fun, but the inclusion of the Disney characters takes it that extra mile.

    The multiplayer will ensure you and your friends will have as much fun with Underground as you did with previous games, and the single-player is a different experience even though the story is sub-par.

    From the particularly joyful vehicle chases, to your conniving ways of infiltrating, I am most gracious to you for giving me your secrets.

    The quirky title utilizes the mini-game concept flawlessly and draws on humor and variety to maintain a fresh stride, and on these points it succeeds.

    With all that’s fantastic about the game I can’t overlook that it needed more polish, and for that reason I wouldn’t say it’s a must-have for those that played the original or still have a copy.

    The only real problem I had with the game is one you have to push "A" 71 consecutive times to pull that many Pikmin out of the ground, and with only 30 days this gets time consuming.

    It will take you a while to beat this game. And even when you've beaten it, you still haven't beaten it until you go back and rescue all the little Electoon dudes. So, replayability is good.
