    Moving and controlling Wario is very simple, and very fun.

    Overall, you’ll find yourself playing all day, wanting to reach 100% in each level. And you'll have a fun time doing it, too.

    The game can get rather frustrating because of the control scheme, but once you have them mastered it can be quite fun.

    An incredible game, and, not counting of few minor flaws, is extremely polished. I'd certainly go as far to say it is probably the best baseball game for those of you who aren't that into baseball.

    It’s one of best top-down racers we have ever seen... I love the mixing of 2D and 3D graphics seen here.

    In my opinion, ANY game that actually makes you want to see the movie and even read the books is a good one, and that game did just that.

    If you want your games to be more accessible and action-oriented, then you'd be better off sticking with "Episode 1 & 2"...If you're looking for a new challenge, or you just want a solid and surprisingly deep strategy-RPG experience, Episode 3 is for you.

    As a newcomer to the Harvest Moon experience, I was floored with the almost overwhelming amount of options and choices within the game. The simple and responsive controls make it very easy to play.

    While it clearly rips off Zelda in certain areas, the Mummy levels are a breath of fresh air to the entire game. Having Sphinx on his own would have had this game be very cookie cutter, so not enough good things can be said about the Mummy.

    Gameplay-wise, this is the closest I've played to "No Mercy" with enough new additions to make the matches more interesting. The story mode, the bread and butter for single player, is very good, although the lack of a branching story line does bring it down.

    I’m torn here because Donkey Kong ’94 is one of my favorite games of all time, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong just isn’t as good.

    Fans of any Disney Princess will adore the game, provided that they are newer to the world of video games.

    Its simplistic, but addictive gameplay will have you playing long after everything is unlocked. Despite a missed opportunity for multiplayer, Wario Ware Touched! beautifully shows off the potential of the Nintendo DS.

    It seems Konami could have made better use of the touch screen feature on the DS, and also taken a few more liberties with innovative game play.

    A very engaging experience packed with fun and interesting characters and puzzles that really make you think.

    If you're looking for a quick, fun game that demands reflexes, has replay value by the bucket loads, and is a blast to play with friends, check it out.

    A solid, fun military war game. The game is nice and challenging, whether in single player or multi-player. For those who like to play games with friends, and not just against them, the co-op mode is amazing and worth taking advantage of.

    Probably the best compilation I have ever seen.

    With Killer 7, Mr. Suda has taken the classic adventure genre, injected it with an incredible amount of hallucinogens, and put his own stamp on Capcom's classic design philosophy. It's a mad world in there; are you mad enough to enter?

    While it can get repetitive at times, Trauma Center is an incredibly fun and unique game experience that offers some of the fastest paced stylus action out there.

    Though the enemies are very repetitive, you'll at least let off some stress while you literally beat the stuffing out them.

    Granted, Hal Laboratories and Flagship tried to shake things up with a multiplayer concept that ended up making it less accessible for lonely GBA owners, but it's still a great Kirby game.

    A beautiful, fast-paced, fun game that can be recommended to all fans of role-playing games. It may not be the best RPG on Game Boy Advance, but it is certainly in the upper echelon of the genre.

    Underneath the less than stellar presentation, is a game that pulls off is a complex, tactical, and worthwhile adventure.

    The only aspect of this game that can be considered negative is the repetition - once all five pikmin types are unlocked there is very little in the way of variation - but the game is easily enough fun to obscure this fact.

    A straight hack and slash action title. Nothing more, nothing less...Quite simply, I love this game.
    • 78 Metascore

    By far the best "Punch-Out" clone to ever grace the gaming world, but it’s certainly not perfect. It lacks the classic charm and replay value of "Punch-Out" and "Super Punch-Out," but that doesn’t mean it’s completely devoid of these qualities.

    I said it before and I’ll say it again, this is the best Nickelodeon game ever.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 81 Critic Score
    If there’s anything to complain about regarding the on-foot missions, it’s their embarrassing simplicity...but it’s pretty much unanimous that the flight missions and multiplayer are top notch.

    Fans of "Power Stone" or "Smash Brothers" should especially be interested in the frantic battle action Gotcha Force has to offer.
