    The type of game that knows what it wants to be (a "Goldeneye" clone) and doesn't really try to do anything else. In the end, it still comes out as a really good game that's fun to play with storyline is second to none.

    With the game’s inherent frustration factor, Bomberman Max 2 will be a game players return to once in a while and just pick up and play for a little while.

    It feels enough like Bond and plays well enough for players to forgive any technical issues.

    I stand in absolute awe of how underrated F1 2002 is.

    A must buy for any Spongebob crazed fan and anybody who likes decent platform games.

    Lost Expedition suffers a bit because there isn’t much to make it stand out from other games in the genre, but it is still a fun ride for the ten hours it lasts and even includes the first two Pitfall games as a bonus.

    An above average game surrounded by overachieving games make Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure a game only platformer fans or Crash fans will really want to buy, but when they do, they won't regret it.

    Even at its hardest, the GC version is quite a bit easier than the Xbox version. Considering the challenge was one of the best things about the game previously, this is one of the ports biggest downfalls in my eyes.

    In the end the Scooby Doo license is well served.

    It’s the best golf game I’ve ever played, and with all the extras, I’m sure to be playing it for many months to come.

    It's motocross to the extreme. There is nothing out there like this, except for "SSX Tricky," and this is better than Tricky. If you like Tricky, you'll love Freekstyle.

    Although the game features a lot of action sequences, it’s really an RPG at heart. However, what makes this game unique is the battle system. It combines a turn based fighting system with a real time one. Did that make sense to anyone?

    One possible complaint is that the game, for all its excellent aesthetic features and options, may simply be too difficult for the average gamer, even in the “novice” difficulty mode.

    Just blowing up anything seen was entertainment at its finest.

    A fun, original platformer that introduces some fun things to the genre, that, if explored more deeply in a sequel, could put the game up there with the best.

    I cannot stress the genius of the game’s real-time, party based combat, which offers a far more satisfying combat play than the "Aidyn Chronicles" could ever achieve.

    The controls are tight, the graphics are great and the gameplay is diverse and filled with mini-games.

    If you already have All-Star Baseball 2003, 2004 probably doesn't have enough additions to make it a worthwhile purchase.

    Super Bubble Pop will have you playing for hours and then some. It’s a simple yet compelling game filled with fun gameplay and gives you an overall addictive nature.

    The Geo-Mod system was better utilized this time around and also very well tied into the multiplayer mode. But one can’t just stop thinking about the possibilities if a game like Red Faction was made from the ground up on the GameCube hardware.

    If you can get over the repetition of asking people about the same things (you do get new information so it is helpful to do so), you will get right into the game and play for quite a long time.

    If you enjoyed the original Banjo-Kazooie games, you will enjoy Grunty's Revenge. If you didn't like the original games, you probably won't like Grunty's Revenge. It's that simple.

    Treasure/Atari/Infogrames/whoever have failed to add anything significant to the game or remedy it's main deficiency: replayability and variety -- the prototype mode notwithstanding. [Import]

    The game’s formula is basically this: grow, attack, mate, grow, attack, mate, grow… and, well you get the picture. Sometimes fighting can simply get old after a while. But besides that this game is absolutely amazing.

    It even has the odd delay time that occurs when you beat someone. I like that, because it gives you a grace period where you can kick the crap out of your opponent a little more before he falls to the floor.

    A significant improvement over the original. The game is longer, the quests are more varied, and the game looks a lot prettier.

    This is a clear example of a shoddy port to a terrific game. No one would stand up to these misgivings on any other title, but for some reason you can forgive Hitman 2. At moments things just get so bad, and the distractions become too much.

    Sadly I must say even the gameplay is starting to be outdated, yet it is still by many standards one of the best formulas for a videogame on the market today.

    It's one huge adventure with thirty-two levels in all, making it longer than many Gamecube games.

    It is the best 2D Frogger out there so far. The gameplay is up-to-date and addictive.
