    5-0 out of 5 stars Best $$ ever spent-just bought 2nd
    I wouldn't be able to praise this toy enough. We gave it to our oldest daughter last Christmas when she was 3 1/2. We were concerned because of the price but compared to a GameBoy we prefered the educational aspect. We have never regreted the purchase. She loves playing with it and has even mastered basic math skills well ahead of time. We had a problem with the screen not responding after about 6 months but it only took a quick email to Leap Frog and they replaced it with our only expense being a few dollars to ship it to them. They have excellent Customer Service. We would have even invested the money to buy a new unit if they hadn't replaced it. <br /> <br /> We have just purchased a unit for our 19 month old daughter because she always wants to share big sister's. I know the age is 4-10 but our little one just loves the characters and even though she doesn't totally understand what to do, she still loves playing. It has helped her to master control of the stylus and she is now much better at coloring too. We have a few extra cartridges and plan on expanding for Christmas. <br /> <br /> We haven't had a problem with battery consumption. This toy definitely hasn't eaten batteries nearly as quickly as others and my older daughter plays with it almost every day. She would play with it more if I would allow it. But we still plan on buying the recharging system too.<br /> <br /> I highly recommend the investment in the carrying case also.<br /> <br /> You just can't go wrong with this toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars my grandson
    I purchased the LeapFrog Leapster for my grandson as a Christmas gift when he was 2 years old. His mom gave it to him when we was 21/2, he absolutely loves it and has learned so much. I like the durability, educational theme and the add ons, it just keeps getting better and better.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Love It
    My son was given this on his 4th b-day, he absolutely loves it and so do I! It has taught him alot and the only reason I rated a 4 and not a 5 is because of the battery situation!! Ouch!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Battery Eater!
    My son got this toy for his 4th birtday. He truly loves it, but it's a battery eater! I cannot believe how quickly this toy drains 4 AA batteries. Thank goodness they are coming out with a recharging unit soon or we'd go broke!

    5-0 out of 5 stars BEST $ EVER SPENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I've never written a review before, but feel I have to about this product. It is the BEST money spent on my daughter ever!!!! My daughter got this for Christmas when she was 3 1/2 years old. She has played with it every day. At night we read books to her and then let her do her Leapster for a little while. We just purchased The Letter Factory for our last trip....and she already knows ALL the letter phonics....it is just amazing!!!!! We have never had a problem with it in 7 months...and we just put new batteries in it for the first time. I so highly reccomend this toy!!!!! ... Read more


    5. Game Boy Advance SP - Cobalt

    Amazon.com Review

    Early Adopters Pick: March 2003. As theworld's smallest video-game platform, the Game Boy Advance SP is also the first to use a built-in rechargeable battery.

    Many decried the original Game Boy Advance's reflective LCD screen and its reliance on external light sources. The Game Boy Advance SP's main feature--optional backlighting--fixes this complaint nicely, but it's the wealth of other features that makes this system so surprisingly good.

    At first look, you might think the SP is a sleek travel alarm clock. When closed, it's just as tall and deep as the original GBA, but only half as wide. Due to its clamshell design, the screen is always protected from everyday scratches. A small button in the center of the console turns on the backlighting element for use in low-light situations, like in a moving car.

    Game Boy Advance angle diagram The SP comes with a well-designed power adapter that recharges a built-in battery; its prongs fold in for easier storage. Our informal tests found that it takes about four hours to fully charge (you can even play it while it's plugged in and charging), and the battery lasts about 11 hours with the backlighting constantly on--your results may vary. Using the backlighting less often will conserve battery power.

    Withseparately soldcables, you can connect the Game Boy Advance SP to other GBAsfor multiplayer gaming (above) or to theNintendo GameCube(below) to access secret levels, exchange data, or use other specialfeatures that vary from game to game.
    The quality of the backlighting is very good. It's bright and clear when looking directly at it, but degraded from other angles. This is only a problem for friends who are watching the screen from over your shoulder.

    But size, power, and affordability do not come without trade offs. There's no headphone jack here, though Nintendo promises an adapter. The system isn't very loud at its highest volume, and the sound can be turned down to socially acceptable levels. The L and R shoulder buttons are a fraction of the size they were on the GBA, and thus are harder to hit. Also, the reduced size of the SP is slightly less comfortable for adult hands than the GBA, but perhaps more comfortable for smaller hands. The cartridge port placement on the lower part of the console is fine for GBA games, since they are flush with the console body, but older Game Boy Color carts will stick out in a way that takes some getting used to.

    Open it up and the hinge will seek out a preferred, pre-set angle (about 150 degrees), though you can open it a bit wider or narrower for your own comfort. The hinge stands up well to lateral pressure, and over all, the SP seems just as rugged as its predecessor--which has proven to be very rugged, indeed. --Porter B. Hall

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gameboy Advance SP Review
    If you were thinking about buying an original Gameboy Advance I would highly reccomend reconsidering. I recently purchased the new GBA SP and was very impressed with the sleek design and great performance of this product. The visuals are very nice, and there are tons of great games out there available for the system. If you were concered about the small size don't worry my hands are fairly large, and holding the system was very comfortable.The Frontlit screen is probobly the most notealbe and anticipated new feature the system has to offer, I was able to play games in a room without any lighting whatsoever with ease, and with the new Lithium Ion battery being used as the power source you won't be needing to spend money on batteries for roughly 3 years; This feature will pay for itself over and over again. I have owned a good deal of handheld consoles and by far this this is the most innovative of them all, finally Nintendo Got it right! My only complaint was the lack of a built in headphone jack for private listening, so you'll have to pay a bit more for the headphone adapter if you plan on using headphones. Unfortunately it always seems to be bundled with something, other than being sold as a standalone item, But the good that this product has to offer greatly outweighs the bad, which makes it highly reccomendalbe. If you have been searching for a great handheld system your search is over, So what are you waiting for? There's no time like there present and these little handhelds are going fast, better get yours while they are still so abundant. ;)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Superb Portable Gaming Device
    I must say, Nintendo has done a damn good job with their Gameboy Advance SP. The only gameboy I had ever owned was the original. At first I didn't want anything to do with any more Gameboys. But after trading a bunch of games in at ebgames, I had about 80 bucks worth of credit and couldn't think of a damn thing to buy. On a whim, I bought a GBA and FF Tactics Advance.
    Well that didn't work out to well, as I was plagued by terrible shoulder/arm/back pains at having to sit in the most uncomfortable positions to get decent lighting.

    I therefore decided on getting a GBA SP for Christmas, and after some thorough playing I can safely say it's worth the money if you like the GBA's library or find yourself away from home often with nothing to do.

    The control is decent, some games such as Mario 3 get a little tough when you have to hold B and pump A, but Nintendo was nice enough to allow the R Shoulder button to act a substitute.
    The folding design allows the screen to remain safe from scratches and collects only minimal dust, and is great for fitting in the pocket.
    And the backlight can be turned on and off, and you'll want it off when playing in bright areas to reduce color washing.

    Thankfully, there aren't too many problems with this device.
    The only real problem I have is that it has no stickies or pads on the bottom when folded up to hold it to a surface. This is a bother because most of the surfaces in my house are smooth countertops, or tabletops or desktops, and the wooden ones are glossed. The last thing you want is to have this thing fall off the table and break, and with nothing to help keep it in place I get a little worried.

    Overall, nothing to be worried about. The best portable system for the cost.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great portable game machine
    As a grown man, I sometimes hate to admit I'm still a gamer. I play Real-Time Simulations (Command & Conquer etc), flight simulators and shooters. I usually take my SP along when I want to play Chess Master on the plane, or a little bit of Top Gear GT. The backlit screen is awesome and the rechargable battery seems to work fine.

    Best thing ever made!!!
    I have this SP and I love it!I bring it almost everywhere I go and play Pokemon Silver. I play it in bed and with the backscreen light I have no problem seeing the screen. And, something that most people dont bring up, I like that it has a lever instead of a wheel for volume.The folding design is awesome,especially since it goes to daycare with me and there are alot of little kids that just take it off the table and drop it.I recommend this to all you major gamers out there.

    Best one yet
    The new game boy advance Sp is the best one yet! The design is perfect, including conviniatly placed buttons.

    PROS
    - A backlight (a light built into the screen - like a tv has so that you can see it in the dark with out turning on the lights) for at night play, in boring movies, on the airplane, or on long road trips.

    - the L and R buttons are convenientily placed

    - built in battery that is charged by connecting the gameboy to an in the wall outlet, or car outlet

    - while the battery is charging you can still play a game

    - you control wether you want the back light on or not

    - can play game boy, game boy color, and game boy advance games, as well as the new videos available

    - better than a video now player for videos, this screen is lighted like a tv screen, in color, and has a bigger screen

    Cons
    - there are none! ... Read more


    6. Nintendo DS

    Amazon.com

    In a surprising number of ways, the Nintendo DS is quite unlike any video game system that's come before. First, there's the two screens, one above and one below. The idea might seem like a gimmick -- the screens are far enough apart that you won't be able to see them as one long screen -- but the format works in a complementary way. Depending on the game, the DS serves action in one screen and details, maps, stats, or alternate views in the other. Switching your eyes between screens takes a little getting used to, but quickly becomes automatic, like checking a rear-view mirror while driving. Both screens are back-lit and a little larger than that of the Game Boy Advance SP, so they'll be easy to see in most conditions.

    Nintendo DS used with a stylus
    Players can control games using the touch-sensitive bottom screen of the DS.
    The bottom screen also functions as a PDA-style touchpad. It comes with a small stylus, as well as a stylus that attaches to your thumb. This touch screen might be both the best and worst feature of the DS. One one hand, it brings the freedom of PC-style mouse control into gaming, but using it also tends to block what's going on in that screen. For example, while playing the Metroid Prime: Hunters, you could use the left thumb pad to move, the left shoulder button to fire, and the touch screen to look and jump. As you track foes on the bottom-screen map, however, your view will be partially obscured by your own right thumb.

    The good news is that Nintendo has stressed a lot of comfort options, both in the operating system and in their games. Want to play Metroid without the touch-pad? Select a different control scheme in the game's option menu, which also includes configurations for lefties. You can even customize your DS to automatically play the inserted title or to start with the main menu, choose which screen to display your GBA games, to add a nickname for wireless play, and more.

    Nintendo DS used with a stylus
    Up to 16 players can connect wirelessly within a 100-foot radius.
    That's right, the DS is wireless-enabled. Say good-bye to that daisy-chain of network cables that was previously necessary for portable multiplayer gaming. Nintendo's proprietary wireless format has a radius rated at 30 to 100 feet depending on environmental interference with its signal. Surely, it's more than enough for friends to game from one end of the bus to the other. We experimented in a small, nearly empty parking lot and got great reception at the upper end of that rating. The DS network can handle up to 16 users, though you can expect the maximum number of players to vary from game to game.

    Also, unlike all but the earliest video game systems, the DS comes with a built-in application. It's called PictoChat, and it allows people to write and draw pictures in a chat-room format. Since it's built in to the DS operating system, you'll always be able to interact with other DS users.

    Nintendo DS used with a stylus
    The built-in program PictoChat lets you write and draw with others.
    But not all is new; Nintendo has re-invested some favorite features of older platforms into the DS. It's backward compatible to the Game Boy Advance, which means that older Game Boy and Game Boy Color games won't work in this machine but GBA games will run fine (sadly, the wireless feature doesn't extend to GBA games). Like the GBA SP, the DS is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides approximately 10 hours of play on a four-hour charge. Old timers might recognize the A/B/X/Y face buttons from the Super Nintendo controller, though they're not in the same positions. The standard headphone jack and wide-body comfort of the first GBA model is back, coupled this time with the SP's screen-saving clamshell design. In terms of its ability to display graphics and sound, the DS is a little better -- and a whole lot smaller -- than the Nintendo 64.

    Overall, the Nintendo DS represents a rather large leap in portable gaming. With some mystery shrouding the future abilities of its internal microphone (voice recognition) and its IEEE 802.11 wireless network, the DS may have left some surprises up its sleeve. --Porter B. Hall

    Pros:

    • Great design marries innovative new features with great features of old systems and lots of customizable options
    • Wireless up to 100 feet
    • Built-in PictoChat lets you write and draw pictures with up to 15 other DS users

    Cons:

    • Sometimes hard to see and use the touch screen at the same time
    • Wireless multiplayer feature won't work with GBA games
    • Can't connect to other wireless devices...yet

    Why should big bouncy high-energy fun be reserved for carnivals and outdoor festivals? Now you can have the excitement of the bouncy castle often seen at those public venues in your own backyard. This castle set inflates with minimal effort once you hook it up to the heavy duty fan that is included. The packaging claims that the castle can be fully mounted in 45 seconds and in our informal test we did have pretty speedy results. Once its set up, kids up to 83 pounds are ready to get in and bounce (total weight should not exceed 250 pounds) in the yellow, red, and blue castle set. The entrance ramp and safety netting around the sides make for nice touches as does the convenient storage bag. --Charlie Williams ... Read more

    Fantastic Fun
    We purchased this item for our daughter's birthday party from Walmart.com. We were notified that it would be delivered in 7 business days, but to my surprise, we got the package in less than 48 hours later! The Bounce 'Round was a hit with all 9 kids, ranging from 1 to 5 years of age. It was easy to set up and take down. It's big enough to hold 4-5 toddlers but small enough to fit inside a garage or patio. It's not educational by any means but it keeps children occupied for hours! We also purchased 100 plastic balls to put inside the Bounce 'Round for added fun. We highly recommend this product.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED
    We ordered this on-line and paid the shipping cost because the only other bounce house we could find were 8 X 8 or smaller. This was going to be a present for our 4 year old and it was going to be used at his party. It stated right on the box 9X9. As my husband set it up, he thought that it looked rather small. He measured it corner to corner and it measured 7ft 6in by 7ft 6in. Not even close to being 9X9. It was very easy to blow up but we were very disappointed in the size. We returned it (...). We then called the manufacture to complain about false advertising and were handled very rudely!!!! WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE PRODUCT AND WITH SPINMASTER.

    Motor Problems
    Based on all the great reviews I purchased this product from a local ToyRus store. Much to my disappointment when I removed the contents of the box the motor was completely torn apart (it is metal so this was no easy task). I phoned the store and they graciously sent someone to my home to replaced the damaged merchandise. However, after removing the contents again there was a large gapping crack across the motor. This time the store said they would check the contents before bringing over a new motor. When the 3rd motor was delivered it looked "beat up" but was intact and did work. The gentleman who searched for the replacement and made the delivery said there were several more boxes with damaged motors in them. After finally getting it all together and setting it up (which was very easy) my soon to be 3-year-old wanted nothing to do with it. What a disappointment. It will go back ASAP.

    Bouncin' Birthday Bash...
    We wanted to rent a bounce house for my daughter's (...) birthday party but we didn't have the space to accomdate one of the rentals. I was on-line searching for a motorized Jeep for her birthday gift when I came upon the bounce 'round castle. We nixed the idea for the Jeep and opted for the bounce house. And I'm soooo glad that we did! My young lids just love it! It's sooooo easy to set up and take down. I was constantly scolding my two younger children for jumping on their beds, my furniture, etc. Now I just send them outside and they can jump until their legs turn to jello! In the long run it was much cheaper to purchase the bounce house than to rent one.

    Cheaper at [local store]
    My kids love this toy - great for burning the energy. ... ... Read more

    Be it a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away or right here at home in the 21st century, Mr. Potato Head never fails to reinvent himself. For generations this spectacular spud has wowed us all with his ability to keep up with the times. Now he throws us all for a loop once again to reveal that even he has a Dark Side, taking up the role of the most menacing movie villains of all times: Darth Vader. Donning the trademark black helmet, mask and cape, our favorite tuber wields the infamous red lightsaber to become his own Darth Tater. Of course you’ll still find all the classic accessories like the googly eyes, red nose, and silly tongue we’ve come to love but now with an added twist of Star Wars. As always, all the pieces still fit away inside his body for easy storage.--Chip Quinn ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Together they shall rule as father and spud...
    At 42 years of age, I never thought I would find myself seeking out a Mr. Potato Head.But one look at Darth Tater and I was gone. Darth Tater now has his place on my desk at a respected law firm, but rarely can someone enter my office without playing with him.He sits on my desk, glaring menacingly out the office door at all those who dare to pass by.Generally, once he is spotted perched on his corner of my desk, he is greeted with a smile and his light saber arm is raised up and down.OK, so one coworker called me a dork, but that's OK.She's young and has much to learn.....My advice?Get Darth Tater if you can!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars REVENGE OF THE TATOR!
    This is great toy...I always loved Mr. Potato Head & now Darth Tator is my new favorite toy!

    Make sure you get your hands on this one while you still can, I know they still have them in stock at other sites.

    Oh & one more thing in reference to the guy from Lodi who openly admitted he hates Star Wars...its a shame that he owns one of the Tators & I hope his Tator seeks his revenge & breaks!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I taterly love this toy
    my teacher brought this in to school and he isnt even a star wars fan. when i saw it and read the darth tater name i thought it was hilarious and got one myself and i hate starwars i just love darth tater tho

    4-0 out of 5 stars Sure to be a mashing success with "Star Wars" fans...
    Okay, I really wish I had come up with "Use the Forks, Luke" first, because no one is going to be able to top that one when it comes to the Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater.But I bet you cannot stop at just one when it comes to riffing on this idea (e.g., Luke and Leia are now Darth Tater Tots and the story takes place "in a grocers far, far away").Not since somebody decided to dress up Barbie in costumes from famous movies has a childhood icon benefited from a commercial tie in to a major motion picture.But not even Barbie as Eliza Doolittle from "My Fair Lady" comes close to the high level of Midi-Cuteians with this toy.

    In addition to the "Potato" with it storage space in the back, Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater comes with helmet, mask, cape, feet, arms (right one holding a light saber), eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, and two ears.The mask makes the nose, mouth and tongue incompatible (the mouth and tongue are either/or choices to begin with).Consequently, you can experiment with other looks besides the obvious: lose the mask and cape, put a face together, and the result is pretty cute.Of course, everything works just as well on a real potato for those of you who want to go real Old School on this one.

    If the words Mr. Potato Head Darth Tater does not sell you then the picture of this toy has got to seal the deal.There are obviously limited opportunities for companion Potato Heads in this series.Princess Leia's original cinnamon hair buns would work, as would Yoda (albiet with a green potato), but neither of those is ever going to be as cute as this one unless they use some sort of Jedi mind trick.That is because the farce is strong with this one...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVE DARTH TATER!
    This is the coolest thing ever!He sits on my desk and watches me with those glaring eyes.He sometimes uses the force to manipulate me.Someone please help me!You are my only hope! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Early Adopters Pick: March 2003. As theworld's smallest video-game platform, the Game Boy Advance SP is also the first to use a built-in rechargeable battery.

    Many decried the original Game Boy Advance's reflective LCD screen and its reliance on external light sources. The Game Boy Advance SP's main feature--optional backlighting--fixes this complaint nicely, but it's the wealth of other features that makes this system so surprisingly good.

    At first look, you might think the SP is a sleek travel alarm clock. When closed, it's just as tall and deep as the original GBA, but only half as wide. Due to its clamshell design, the screen is always protected from everyday scratches. A small button in the center of the console turns on the backlighting element for use in low-light situations, like in a moving car.

    Game Boy Advance angle diagram The SP comes with a well-designed power adapter that recharges a built-in battery; its prongs fold in for easier storage. Our informal tests found that it takes about four hours to fully charge (you can even play it while it's plugged in and charging), and the battery lasts about 11 hours with the backlighting constantly on--your results may vary. Using the backlighting less often will conserve battery power.

    Withseparately soldcables, you can connect the Game Boy Advance SP to other GBAsfor multiplayer gaming (above) or to theNintendo GameCube(below) to access secret levels, exchange data, or use other specialfeatures that vary from game to game.
    The quality of the backlighting is very good. It's bright and clear when looking directly at it, but degraded from other angles. This is only a problem for friends who are watching the screen from over your shoulder.

    But size, power, and affordability do not come without trade offs. There's no headphone jack here, though Nintendo promises an adapter. The system isn't very loud at its highest volume, and the sound can be turned down to socially acceptable levels. The L and R shoulder buttons are a fraction of the size they were on the GBA, and thus are harder to hit. Also, the reduced size of the SP is slightly less comfortable for adult hands than the GBA, but perhaps more comfortable for smaller hands. The cartridge port placement on the lower part of the console is fine for GBA games, since they are flush with the console body, but older Game Boy Color carts will stick out in a way that takes some getting used to.

    Open it up and the hinge will seek out a preferred, pre-set angle (about 150 degrees), though you can open it a bit wider or narrower for your own comfort. The hinge stands up well to lateral pressure, and over all, the SP seems just as rugged as its predecessor--which has proven to be very rugged, indeed. --Porter B. Hall

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gameboy Advance SP Review
    If you were thinking about buying an original Gameboy Advance I would highly reccomend reconsidering. I recently purchased the new GBA SP and was very impressed with the sleek design and great performance of this product. The visuals are very nice, and there are tons of great games out there available for the system. If you were concered about the small size don't worry my hands are fairly large, and holding the system was very comfortable.The Frontlit screen is probobly the most notealbe and anticipated new feature the system has to offer, I was able to play games in a room without any lighting whatsoever with ease, and with the new Lithium Ion battery being used as the power source you won't be needing to spend money on batteries for roughly 3 years; This feature will pay for itself over and over again. I have owned a good deal of handheld consoles and by far this this is the most innovative of them all, finally Nintendo Got it right! My only complaint was the lack of a built in headphone jack for private listening, so you'll have to pay a bit more for the headphone adapter if you plan on using headphones. Unfortunately it always seems to be bundled with something, other than being sold as a standalone item, But the good that this product has to offer greatly outweighs the bad, which makes it highly reccomendalbe. If you have been searching for a great handheld system your search is over, So what are you waiting for? There's no time like there present and these little handhelds are going fast, better get yours while they are still so abundant. ;)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Superb Portable Gaming Device
    I must say, Nintendo has done a damn good job with their Gameboy Advance SP. The only gameboy I had ever owned was the original. At first I didn't want anything to do with any more Gameboys. But after trading a bunch of games in at ebgames, I had about 80 bucks worth of credit and couldn't think of a damn thing to buy. On a whim, I bought a GBA and FF Tactics Advance.
    Well that didn't work out to well, as I was plagued by terrible shoulder/arm/back pains at having to sit in the most uncomfortable positions to get decent lighting.

    I therefore decided on getting a GBA SP for Christmas, and after some thorough playing I can safely say it's worth the money if you like the GBA's library or find yourself away from home often with nothing to do.

    The control is decent, some games such as Mario 3 get a little tough when you have to hold B and pump A, but Nintendo was nice enough to allow the R Shoulder button to act a substitute.
    The folding design allows the screen to remain safe from scratches and collects only minimal dust, and is great for fitting in the pocket.
    And the backlight can be turned on and off, and you'll want it off when playing in bright areas to reduce color washing.

    Thankfully, there aren't too many problems with this device.
    The only real problem I have is that it has no stickies or pads on the bottom when folded up to hold it to a surface. This is a bother because most of the surfaces in my house are smooth countertops, or tabletops or desktops, and the wooden ones are glossed. The last thing you want is to have this thing fall off the table and break, and with nothing to help keep it in place I get a little worried.

    Overall, nothing to be worried about. The best portable system for the cost.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great portable game machine
    As a grown man, I sometimes hate to admit I'm still a gamer. I play Real-Time Simulations (Command & Conquer etc), flight simulators and shooters. I usually take my SP along when I want to play Chess Master on the plane, or a little bit of Top Gear GT. The backlit screen is awesome and the rechargable battery seems to work fine.

    Best thing ever made!!!
    I have this SP and I love it!I bring it almost everywhere I go and play Pokemon Silver. I play it in bed and with the backscreen light I have no problem seeing the screen. And, something that most people dont bring up, I like that it has a lever instead of a wheel for volume.The folding design is awesome,especially since it goes to daycare with me and there are alot of little kids that just take it off the table and drop it.I recommend this to all you major gamers out there.

    Best one yet
    The new game boy advance Sp is the best one yet! The design is perfect, including conviniatly placed buttons.

    PROS
    - A backlight (a light built into the screen - like a tv has so that you can see it in the dark with out turning on the lights) for at night play, in boring movies, on the airplane, or on long road trips.

    - the L and R buttons are convenientily placed

    - built in battery that is charged by connecting the gameboy to an in the wall outlet, or car outlet

    - while the battery is charging you can still play a game

    - you control wether you want the back light on or not

    - can play game boy, game boy color, and game boy advance games, as well as the new videos available

    - better than a video now player for videos, this screen is lighted like a tv screen, in color, and has a bigger screen

    Cons
    - there are none! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    LeapFrog is well known for their interactive learning toys and now they've paired with Disney for a princesses' tour of language and math. Cinderella and Belle will help guide your child through various learning activities, such as: letter hunt, spelling games, addition and subtraction games, and number find. Both Belle and Cinderella tell jokes, sing songs, and are generally encouraging with sweet and cheerful voices. If your child decides to stop playing and doesn't turn the laptop off, the princesses ask, "Would you like to play some more?" and if there is no answer, the computer shuts itself off. An LCD screen displays letters, numbers, and other pictures during all the activities. Moms and dads will be glad to note that there are two volumes and virtually no set-up. Requires 4 "AA" batteries (included). --Megan Sullivan ... Read more

    Best toy in the house
    My 2 1/2 year old received this toy as a gift. She ABSOLUTELY loves her "puter". I fill my house with fun and educational toys and this one is hands down the best. She has been playing with it for a few weeks now and can sing her ABC's from A-K. All her friends want to play with it as well. I only wish they had a "boy" version so my son could have one of his own.

    Another good one from LeapFrog
    My mother and I were having a garage sale and I very much wanted to clean out and get rid of some toys. After explaining the concept to my daughter that if she sold some toys, she could buy some new ones. Well with her money, she picked this out of everything in the huge toy store. She loves it, she takes it in the car on trips, plays with it at the kitchen table while I am cooking. It's great, educational and something to grow with!

    A fun "umputer".
    I love it and I am 34yrs old.
    My 4yr old loves it. And, as far as I am concerned that is all that matters. The sound, the colors, the characters and the keys all all conducive to the purpose that it was intended for.
    I bought it for my daughter so she could use it when I was on our family computer.
    The only thing (and its not a big thing)is that I wish the screen was bigger.
    I would highly recommend it or buy it as a gift.

    Disney's Laptop by LeapFrog
    My daughter Lily got this for her 3rd birthday. We have always loved LeapFrog products. This was her favorite present, hands down. My 6 and 9 year olds even love it! I am really impressed by how many things it does. After playing with it for a day Lily can identify some letters and numbers. The music is great, and I LOVE that there is a high low switch, making it a quiet toy as well as a learning toy!

    A perfect laptop for your Princess!
    Our 3.5 yr old got this for Christmas and LOVES having "my own 'puter". It is easy for her to open for herself and she loves to hear her favorite characters speaking to her! She likes the activity that sounds out words as you type in letters, and gets so excited when she actually makes a word! She also really likes the counting activity. This laptop has been banged around and dropped several times and it is in perfect working condition. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This game..is awesome! Much better than Ruby and Sapphire!
    This game is much more funner and challenging. After you defeat the elite four, you can go to the Battle Frontier. The Battle Frontier is absolutley awesome! Over all, I will give this game a 9.3 outta 10! Thank you nintendo for making this game so much better! For those who don't have the game, you will love it! It's much more advanced than boring old Ruby or Sapphire. IT'S much more FUNNER! And it's only a measily little price of 35 bucks. That's a pretty good deal! So get the game today! It's AWESOME!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Few Flaws
    This game, overall, was very good. I believe that even those who have Ruby or Sapphire would like this game. One reason is the new Battle Frontier. this leaves you a major challenge once the core of the game has been completed. There are also many plot changes that make this game, overall, a good buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars cool
    well it might have the same plot, but still pretty damn good.its all around rayquaza though in this one.that kinda sucks cuz i wanted a sequel to do wit the latis.oh well.but i love the fact that they actually gave u a choice on latias or latios.oh and ray,gro, and ky are now all lvl.70.ray is at sky pillar all da time. gro will occor in,um ithink 6,yah probably 6 places called the terra cave.same thing with ky.except he is at the marine cave underwater. oh and now key to the regis.
    rock=left left down down then use rock smash
    ice=go inside then run around while touching the wall at all times
    steel=go in da middle and use flash

    oh and u have to check out the battle frontier and tents.the tents let u practice for the frontier.lol.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pokemon Emerald
    You may not think that there is much feutures in pokemon emerald untill you have beaten the elite 4.There is a new area called the battle frontier... You can get both groudon and kyogre in the game and there is lots of new places and new things to do.I have pokemon sapphire and I do not think this game was a waste of money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game!!!!
    i haven't played this game yet but of wat my frind has told me it will be awsome!! there are 14 new badges to collect and other fetures.this game is like crystal,ruby, saphire,firered, and leafgreen all together!! you can catch johto kanto and hoenn pokemon in different places, like (after the elit 4) totodile in the safari zone and much much more.i wont spoil the game but this is a MUST HAVE for rpg pokemon players!! ...

    Amazon.com Review

    Though it looks like a toy, don't be fooled: the Nintendo GameCube is a powerful video game console that rightly deserves its place among the other next-generation game systems. In fact, its playful, appealing design and small size (the unit is a not-quite-cubed 6 inches) aren't the only features that set it apart from the others.

    For starters, Nintendo has quite clearly made this a game-only machine. It doesn't try to play your CD collection, run your movies, read your e-mail, or store your MP3 files. The company has concentrated its efforts on games. All the prelaunch titles we've seen play smoothly, with bright, fast graphics and great sound. Nintendo says its engineers have removed traditional bottlenecks that have, in the past, slowed down processing. New components designed by IBM and MoSys, as well as a large-capacity secondary memory cache, keep instructions moving through the system's microprocessor (MPU) at peak levels. In English: the GameCube is optimized to push speed up while pushing costs down; hence its position at the lower end of the price spectrum.

    The GameCube is the first Nintendo video game system to use a disc-based medium rather than cartridges for its games. Moving the software to disc media generally means lower development costs for the publishers, which, in turn, trickles down to the consumer not only in price, but also in availability and quality, as it's then easier to try out untested game ideas (Pikmin, anyone?). While most other systems likewise have their games stored on discs, the GameCube's 3-inch format is smaller than everyone else's, and is so designed to fit in a shirt pocket as much as to deter would-be software pirates.

    Of course, the main advantage of the GameCube is that it's the home field of one of the world's premier game designers: Nintendo. While powerhouses Electronic Arts and Sega make games for all systems (including this one), you can play Nintendo games only on a Nintendo system. And Nintendo, you might recall, has been hitting them out of the park since it started with Donkey Kong. In fact, here's a roll call of characters and series you won't find on the other consoles: Mario, Legend of Zelda, Perfect Dark, Metroid, Kirby, and, of course, Pokémon. A few names that the GameCube will share with the other guys: Madden, Tony Hawk, Sonic, Batman, and Star Wars.

    The system also comes with four built-in controller ports, so you can easily plug in extra controllers and let friends join in for the multiplayer games--it's even got a built-in handle so you can easily move it to a friend's house. It comes with two memory card slots for saving your progress through games, and there's the capacity for future expansion into the world of online gaming.

    In short, the GameCube isn't an all-in-one entertainment system, and neither is it the most powerful of the modern video game consoles. But for video game enthusiasts who want to stick with their favorite characters, its value cannot be beat. --Porter B. Hall

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Nintedo's Greatest Consoles
    The Nintendo GameCube is one of Nintendo's best systems to date. It doesn't try to have a ton of different accessories and other things like a DVD player and CD player like Sony did with the Playstation 2. Many say that they don't like the system for that reason. Who cares?! It's a video game system, for God's sake! It shouldn't be anything more. I'll leave it at that. Anyways, it's game are unique and memorable, and most are sequels to the greatest series of all time. Metroid, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Super Smash Brothers, Sonic Adventures, and MANY MORE. This system also sports great music with it's games. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has a great soundtrack to support my theory.^^ The GameCube doesn't rely too much on RPG's, though those are it's strong points.^^; The controller isn't hard to use; none of it's buttons are on the back, and they're close together for easy use. The system holds much more memory than the N64, seeing as Nintendo has finally moved on to discs and not cartridges. If you like Nintendo, this system is for you. Even if you're not a Nintendo fan, get it anyway. You won't be dissapointed.^_^

    5-0 out of 5 stars A unique ride
    Consoles are bought for their exclusive games and the system's features. Halo, Xbox Live, and Knights of the Old Republic for XBox, and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Final Fantasy X for Playstation 2. But people glaze their eyes over paying any attention to the purple box with a handle and I believe they miss out.

    Eternal Darkness, Metroid Prime, Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda: Wind Waker, Pikmin, and Super Monkey Ball 2 are 6 games that are about fun. Oddly enough, all but SMB2 are published by Nintendo. They understand what makes games fun to play with. ED offers mature gamers a deep story (disclaimer: its not as deep if the gamer doesn't ask questions or start looking up ancient history), and Pikmin offers a refreshingly new and charming strategic puzzle adventure.

    And if you like those, you'll be happy to know that every one (but ED) of those games has a known sequel in the works. If you like Metal Gear Solid, then a remake is hitting the cube this fall. If you like Resident Evil, Cube is your system. If you have fun memories of mario kart, you'll be ready to buy Mario Kart: Double Dash this year, along with the fastest futuristic racer, F-Zero. If you like RPGs, Final Fantasy Chronicles, Phantasy Star Online, Skies of Arcadia, Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, and other very good RPGs are here or coming in a few months.

    Clearly there are a lot of exclusives for everyone. If you just want your Madden 2004, and Red Faction II, or Timesplitters 2, and Splinter Cell, then you can get those too. Check out the rest of gamecube's library: ..

I was leaning toward PS2 since I already have a bunch of PS1 games, but that got me thinking; if a large part of a systems value is not only how good the games are, but also how MANY games you can play, doesn't it make sense to consider the cost of purchasing additional games?

    With this new consideration, I quickly chose Gamecube. Look, a major reason the decision between the three systems is so hard is because they are all good, and they all have their own unique advantages (which are hard to compare against each other when making decisions). Maybe Xbox graphics are the best, maybe PS2 lets me play games from PS1, but I was able to buy a used Gamecube (80), a used copy of NBA 2003 (15), a used copy of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 (9), and a new copy of Crazy Taxi (20) from Electronics Boutique. In the end, I paid only >> 4 << dollars more than getting a used PS2 with nothing.

    If you want a great system, you can pick Xbox, Playstation 2, or Gamecube. If you want a great system that you can play new games in all the time (without going broke), get the Gamecube. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Been playing GT4 Prologue for about a month!
    I seriously hope that Sony puts a lot more effort into their completed product. Mind you the graphics are superb, I don't think that anyone can deny that. Playing the game looks like watching the intro movie. The driving physics are improved from the previous game, to a point. My major complaint is that when any type of traction control is turned on all the cars seem to drive the same. A rear wheel drive car drives like a front and vice versa. All the cars oversteer with the computer aided driving control. This problem is exacerbated in the rally modes. Another issue is the camera angles. The incar and 1st out of car angles are fine. The farthest camera angle makes the car look completely two-dimensional. The car turns like it is on a pivot about eight feet behind the car; it sweeps across the screen versus steering.

    Don't get me wrong, I have had a blast playing this game and will be the first in line when a release date is set. Everything that is good about this game far outweighs the bad. But, nonetheless, the negative points are a direct correlation to how the game is played.

    I'll say one thing, the tracks are phenomenal, the rally track especially. It also looks like they may be adding Sears Point Raceway, now known as Infineon. I could be wrong; but based on some of the ending movies I was able to recognize some key landmarks.

    Can't wait to play the real thing, minus the Prologue bugs.

    4-0 out of 5 stars READ THIS I HAVE PLAYED IT!
    I got a chance to get behind the wheel at E3 this year, so for all die hard fans out there this review is for you! One huge difference in the game one sees off the bat is the graphics. With new elements such as weather effects(rain,snow, etc.) and much more pixels per square inch it can be hard to tell the difference between the simulator and reality. Yes indeed many more cars will be availible, but unlike the previous Gran Turismo games many more classic cars will be availible. I cannot say what cars exactly, but some new brands will be added as well that have not been availible before.

    Here is the kicker, Sony teamed up with Logitech for the ultimate driving wheel to accompany the game. Much like last GT3 with the Force feedback wheel, Logitech has gone up and beyond unlike anything before this. A brand new Steering Wheel with a 900 DEGREE TURNING RADIUS!!!! unlike previous wheels with only about 200 degrees you will actually have to work hard to control the car. More than one turn on the wheel to be at full turning point! The Wheel is set to accompany the games release sometime near the fourth quarter of 2003!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Posibly the most impressive looking racer to date
    Posibly the most impressive looking racer to date. If only other game making companies could apply as much effort into a game as Sony has done with GT4

    The hottest game to be unleashed
    GT3 was an awesome game, from the tune ups to the formula ones. I tried the prologue of GT4, and WHOA. The graphics were awesome, but it was only 80 % done in the prolugue.And for those supercars lovers, there wil be lamborghinis, ferarris, and the Mclaren F1 GTR. There will also be the real car physics (the acceleration, handling, and top speed), and the race tracks extremely detailed. This is a best buy

    4-0 out of 5 stars gt3 is great!

    Editorial Review

    The three-wheel Preschool Scooter is a good solution for toddlers who,watching older siblings, have contracted a bad case of scooter envy. In front,two 4-inch urethane wheels are placed eight inches apart for stability; at theback, there's a 3-inch wheel and a "spoon" brake just like on those metal "bigkid" scooters. This vehicle is mostly plastic, but sturdy enough for the job,with comfortable foam grips. A cleverly designed "lean-and-steer" mechanism atthe front axle makes it significantly easier to control than some three- orfour-wheel toddler scooters. This one resists the tendency to tip over whengoing around corners. --Richard Farr ... Read more

    BEST SCOOTER!!!
    I bought this scooter for my 3 year old son 3 years ago and it is still the most popular scooter in our neighborhood! All the kids, ages 2 to 9 like to ride it. It is much easier to ride with the two wheels in the front. It is an excellent first scooter and I highly recommend it!

    I completely recommend this toy!
    We purchased this scooter a couple of months ago for our 2-year old (he will be 3 in August), and after his 2nd try, he was zipping, executing turns and stops all around our cul-de-sac, just like his 10-, 11- and 12-year old siblings on their "big kid" scooters! I was amazed! This is the ONLY scooter I found anywhere with the 2 wheels in the front, instead of in the rear, and it has made a tremendous difference. Educational value comes from the fact that it has improved his large motor skills, coordination and self-confidence! I read the earlier review where someone had problems with the durability of theirs, but we have had no problems at all, and he gets pretty rough with it, at times.

    The best preschool scooter around
    My 4 year old son has been using this scooter since he was
    2 years old. He has had a great time with this scooter.It
    really turns well and is very stable for young riders.Most
    preschool scooters have the two wheels in the back but this
    scooter has the two wheels in the front making it easier
    for the young rider to scoot.My little guy can keep up
    with his older friends when they are on their two
    wheel scooters. This scooter provides a smooth ride and
    is very durable.This is the best preschool scooter around.

    We love it!!
    My son got this scooter for Christmas at age 2 1/2. Right away he had no trouble balancing and quickly learned to turn. We had tested other "little kid" scooters with the 2 wheels in the back and they were much harder to balance. He loves this and rides it every chance he gets, he has learned how to control it very well which is why I gave it 3 stars for educational value. I would have given it 5 stars for durabilty, but he has 2 big brothers that also want to ride it. When the kids over 50 pounds get on it, I can see the wheels bow, so they are not supposed to ride it.

    Great toy!!
    My two year old received this for Christmas. We just got it out since it is just warming up(April)and he loves it!! I never would have thought he would be able to ride it as well as he does. Very fun and a great introduction to a real scooter. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite system
    I'll give you my rhoughts on all three systems
    PS2(Top 3 games:Grand Theft Auto Double Pack/Metal Gear Solid 2/Final Fantasy X
    Pros:
    Play's DVDs
    Plays PS1 games
    Plays Cds
    Has the best games out
    Easiest Controller
    usally doesn't cost nothing to get online
    Cons:
    The worst graphics, but not all that bad
    Can have long annoying loading times
    Need to buy memory cards
    Need to buy multitap in order to have 4 players
    What's up with Final Fantasy XI(They wan't $99 for game and hard drive, and pay money to be online every month, they're NUTS!!!!)

    Xbox(Top 3 games:Halo/Grand Theft Auto Double Pack/Star Wars KOTOR
    Pros:
    Best graphics out of three
    Best for multiplatform games(Like Max Payne, it was better on this than PS2)
    no memory cards
    Custom sountracks(On selected game)
    The fastest loading systems
    The best suited for T and M rated games(My kinda games)
    Cons:
    The controller is still a little frustrating(And I had the dang thing for a while, I need a controller S)

    Xbox live costs a bit, but no that much
    So far still behind in games, but it's movin on up!
    Too bad it can't burn mixed CD songs on it(Cuz I hate grabbing my regular CDs just to get 1 song)
    Have to buy DVD kit to play DVDs
    STOP DELAYING HALO 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Gamecube(Top 3 games:Zelda:Wind Waker/Super Smash Brothers Meele/Metroid Prime
    Pros:
    Nice tiny compact system
    Good ol fasion nintendo games on a new Nintendo system
    50% technology/50%good games
    cheapest system
    Small controller, but it wasn't hard for me to get used to it
    Cons:
    Not the best for fighting games, (altho I brought Soul Calibur 2 because of Link, and it worked out)
    Must take care of discs or one bad scratch can put it out of commision
    Cant play DVDs or CDs, but hey it's devoted to nothing but games
    Needs memory cards
    Bairly any online games(I only know one, and thats Phantasy Star Online)

    This console war stuff is stupid, lemme say it again, it's just stupid. It's just baisicly peple who only have one of the consoles, and are mad that they don't have the other one, so they bash it hoping to stop the anger. Like when people say PS2 has atari graphics, if thats what you see, get some friggin glasses yo! And whoever says Xbox has no games, and says Halo's garbage it's catchin on up, and Halo is so far the best game I've played on any new generation console,and anyone who treats gamecube like junk, they're just missiing out on some of the good stuff. Me I just say get all three, because all of them are very good systems, I don't care if one says one systems better than the other, they're all good!

    Best System Available
    The Playstation 2 Entertainment System is the best videogame console available. Sure, Xbox has those awsome graphics, but have you seen the TERRIBLY clunky controler? And Gamecube isn't any good either, believe me, I owned one. It has a very small library of games, and the games it DOES have are mostly for little kids. The PS2 has the USB Headset, Internet Adapter, a HUGE library of games, it plays DVD's and CD's, and it's backwards-compatible (it plays PSX games)! My only complaint is that the graphics aren't all that sharp. If you are older than 9, and looking to buy a videogame console, look no further. Go out and buy one. NOW. If you don't beleive me, ask one of the 60,0000'th PS2 owners out their.

    Games I reccomend:

    Medal of Honor Frontline

    Grand Theft Auto III

    ATV Offroad Fury 2

    Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec

    Jak II

    Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando

    Final Fantasy (Pick one of the many titles)

    PS2 ROCKS!!! (Note: Look for the PS3 in the next 2-4 years...)

    5-0 out of 5 stars The PS2 is the best gaming system out right now
    OK. Put it this way. XBOX sucks. Gamecube sucks. For XBOX, you have to freakin pay to play online. for the PS2, all you need is the Internet adaptor. And what the heck is up with the XBOX controller? Its fat and ugly. Plus the PS2 is more compact and easier carry. Plus, you have to pay more to even do what the XBOX is capable of. 30 dollars for a dvd remote just so you can be able to play dvd's on the XBOX? thats crazy. With the PS2, all you need is the PS2 and a controller. Plus the PS2 has a WIDER variety of games to play than both systems combined. Sure the XBOX may have better graphics, but thats it. So hands down, the PS2 is the best system to buy right now.

    3-0 out of 5 stars DVD? Are you sure about that?
    I've never been able to get the play station to work as a DVD player, that is a disappointment, since I get sick of having so many wires in my entertainment unit, and it would have been nice to have one machine that performs three functions. (It plays Cd's quite nicely). That aside, It's a wonder machine that plays not only the new Playstation 2 games, but the older Playstation 1. (who wants to render all of their older games as obsolete?) Even though it would have been nice to use it as a DVD player, and I can't, it is a good machine and well worth the little that it costs. (But beware. . .Playstation makes up for the small cost by charging an arm and then some for the games.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love the playstation2!I

    Editorial Review

    Radio Flyer’s Pathfinder is the SUV of little red wagons, sporting a rugged plastic body and offering tikes a luxurious amount of towing or riding space. The wagon’s convertible seats fold down for maximum storage capacity and then flip up to comfortably accommodate two children. Webbed seatbelts ensure that children don’t bounce out when riding over rough terrain. The Pathfinder’s interior also has four built-in drink holders to keep sippy cups and juice boxes secure during the ride. The extra-long handle has a large, loop grip that even kids can control and that folds under the wagon for more compact storage. Like all Radio Flyer wagons, this one has heavy axles to handle a lot of weight, heavy-duty casters for making tight turns without tipping, and durable rubber tires that provide a soft, quiet ride. The Pathfinder measures 39-1/4 inches long, 19 inches wide, and 16-1/2 inches tall. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars #1 Wagon
    My parents bought this for my son last year for Christmas. We searched and searched for the right wagon for two toddlers. After receiving this one I would recommend no other. The heavy duty RUBBER wheels (not plastic)are great on any surface. We have a huge property and it's great to go to the garden, to the beach, and for walks. The seatbelts are a must with little ones and I don't know what I would do without them!!! This item is a must have for children and parents alike!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Out There
    This wagon is great! My 22 month old and 8 month old love it! There are seat belts so we can go across busy roads without anyone escaping! The wheels roll beautifully and the cup holders are perfect. I would recommend this wagon to anyone looking at all the different ones out there! My older son can pull my younger son (with supervision of course) and feel like a big boy. The wagon is sturdy and smooth so there is no worry about the little one!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon
    We bought this wagon for my son for christmas last year and he was only 4 months old. Once he learned to sit well on his own we would take him for walks in it and when it was time to go inside he would cry. He absoulty loves it. Very easy to put together and wheels turn great. Easy to pull. Highly recommended.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Wagon!!
    I just bought this for my grandson and it is AWESOME! Like one mom said the seatbelts are wonderful - I have not seen another wagon with seatbelts and being 11 months old and learning to walk he is always standing up! Now I don't have to keep turning around to check on him. Everything about this wagon is perfect - the handle is long enough to pull without having to bend over; the wheels make pulling SO easy (one review said they had problems with the wheels getting stuck- not me!) and we go off road adventuring too!! - neat cupholders for his bottle - cool storage compartment for all his neat little finds along the way - WE LOVE IT! You have to go get one - you will not be sorry! It is the best investment yet as far as toys are concerned. THANK YOU RADIO FLYER!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Wagon Ever!
    I was searching for the perfect wagon for my daughter's 2nd Birthday. We decided to purchase this one. I love the fact that it has rubber wheels for a quiet ride. I also love the fact that the seats fold down to make a flat surface. That made it great for towing all of our gear into the zoo, such as our coolers, bags, etc., and then when my daughter fell alseep we layed a blanket on top and it was a perfect place for her to rest. While she enjoyed her ride in the wagon, we were able to strap her in with the seatbelts so she wouldn't try getting out while pulling the wagon. Great price for a great wagon! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Offically better than GT4
    I have no idea what the person below me was talking about that this is a bad game. But you know I'm cool with that everyone has their own opinion. Check this.

    Pros

    Amazing car customization and performance upgrades.
    Over two hundred cars.
    Amazing classes of cars.

    Cons
    It is extremely hot outside


    I'm already playing XBOX Live mabey we could play some time. See you at the finish line.

    "You are what you Race"
    -------Forza Motrosports

    1-0 out of 5 stars What a ripoff
    I am thinking if the other reviewers are Forza game designers and developers.

    Okay, here is an objective feedback:

    Pros:

    A LOTTTTTTTTTA CARS (Infact, the greatest collection of Cars that I have ever seen)

    Customizable parts and performance.

    A lot of options to tweak the behavior and handling of the car

    CONS:

    ...HORRIBLE HORRIBLE GAMEPLAY...

    If you have every played Project Gotham Racing 2 (PGR2) or Rallisport Challenge or Midtown Madness 3 or even NFS and appreciated the smooth, responsive handling of the cars, the fast gameplay and whizzing scenery around you, this game will be a LETDOWN.

    The cars are extremely sluggish, very very unresponsive and at 120 mph, the scenery floats by you at the same rate as 20 mph in rallisport challenge or PGR2.

    Rallisport and PGR2 are wayyyyyyyy better than this game. I think there is this whole hype factor surrounding this game that just makes us compulsive shoppers want to just go and get it. Do yourself a favor: TRY THE GAME before you buy it.

    I wish somebody had told me about it so that I could have not thrown $50 in this worthless game. My time is sort of precious and I am glad that I didnt waste more than 2 hours on this dump.

    Do yourself a favor and try this game from blockbuster or gamestop before throwing your hard earned money...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quite Possibly The Best Racing Sim On Xbox.
    Ive been playing this game for days now & Ive lost alot of sleep because I cant get enough of it ,its a great game,but I will warn you it is a Racing simulator type game that does have a slight learning curve & it will be a harder game when you first play it,because the driving physics are based on real-world driving.I do like other games like Project Gothem2 but FORZA is a better simulation of Real-world driving.Forza playsalot like Grand Turismo.The vast amount of different cars you can buy & race in FORZA isamazing ,the most of any game to date. You can buy just about any real-life car that are in showrooms today and also some of the older cars from the early sixties all the way up through to 2005.The manufacturers are all represented here from ASIA,North America(USA),Germany,Italy,United Kingdom,Sweden,France,Korea,Spain.You could buy a 1991 Honda CRX SI and upgrade it to about 800 HP & race it against a Ferrari ENZO. You have a ton of different race series from Point to Point, Amateur, Professional, Championship series,& Long Endurance races which require pit-stops. Each race is limited to your cars category from D class, C class, B class, A class , S class, R class.Classes D through S have four subclasses ,with 1 being the highest rated & 4 being the lowest. Class R has three subclasses R-GT, R-GTS, & P1. You cars class will raise as you upgrade it & you can sell,& remove parts,adversly you can lower your cars class if you remove parts. There are also brand specific races like Impreza vs.Lancer, RX7 vs. Supra ,American Muscle event,Roadster Challenge,Club Mustang event,Light Weight Challenge,300 HP challenge,etc.etc.There's also FW drive event,AWD event,MR event & many more.The vast number of different class restricted races is mindboggling ,this game is HUGE! You can Upgrade your cars with a large amount of options including Intake Exaust,Fuel Ignition,Turbo Charger, Supercharger,Intercooler,& you can swap up to bigger engines ,say example you could put a b18c5 engine from an Integra type R into any Civic.Also you can upgrade your cars other parts like, Tires from Y-rated ,DOT,to Slicks,Brakes,Transmission,Clutch & Flywheel,Weight reduction,Suspension.You can also add body kit parts from Front & Rear bumpers,Side skirts,Roll Cage,Hood,Rims,Spoilers. You can custom paint your cars from about 80 different colors.You can add customDecals & Vinyls on your cars left side ,top side,front bumper,rear bumper,& wing & change the shape color of each Vinyl for a completly unlimited amount of custom options.You can move,size,spin,tilt,EACH vinyl & decal & layer them up to 100,you could easily spend hours alone on vinyl applications. You can FINETUNE your cars set-up from Front & Rear tire pressure,adjust each individual gear ratio,adjust degree of camber /toe/castor,adjust ride height front & rear, adjust spring tension from soft to firm,adjust Damping Bump & Rebound,Adjust AERO downforce on front bumper & spoiler/wing, adjust Differential accell & decel,adjust Braking balance & pressure & the E-brake slow/fast.You can then go test your adjustments on any track youve unlocked & while your on the track you can fine tune it as your driving a test run in the pause menu.You can then save your cars tune set-up & then load that set-up before any race to match the track your gonna race on.You also can get a Benchmark setting to see what your adjustments have done ,it will show you Acceleration 0-60mph time ,0-100mph time, Top Speed,Braking Distance In feet ,& Lateral G's. As you win races & championships you will get credits towards purchasing more cars or parts,Also sponsors will give you discounts on parts when you win races & championships.Car manufacturers will give you free cars for winning races,series,& championships.The graphics are pretty good in this game ,the only negative thing is the people look like cardboard cutouts,but its still looks pretty good alot of nice detail.The New York & Tokyo tracks are realy nice. The cars all look fantastic and after youve finished a race you can watch and/or save your replay which looks fantastic.The strongest part of this game is the racing gameplay which is outstanding! And I did notice a big difference in performance after you add parts to your car and/or fine tune it .Its a very realistic racing game that does have a learning curve to get used to ,but once you get familiar with the driving physics its realy fun. The developers did a great job with this game & it shows. FORZA is must own for any fan of Racing sims.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Decent...but overhyped
    I definetly looked forward to this game, but after 2 years of Project Gotham 2, I can't seem to accept what "seems" like a game that was created before PGR2.

    The graphics are by FAR a letdown. GT4 blows it away, and PGR2 is must crisper also.

    Game play is decent...sure its more realistic, harder to drive, turn, less acceleration, but it's NOT AS FUN!!

    If you are a GT4 fan, this may be for you. But if you want instant XBOX live racing with a more "fun' factor...then look to PGR2.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get the Fanatec Speedster 3 ForceShock steering wheel
    If you have an extra $150 after buying this game, then I strongly recommend you also get Fanatec's Speedster 3 ForceShock steering wheel for Xbox.It was designed to work with Forza Motorsport, and it's the closest you'll get to a force feedback steering wheel on the Xbox.The Xbox doesn't offer true full-blown force feedback, but this wheel is pretty close.The wheel also works with other Xbox racing games, but Forza Motorsport has special code in it to work specifically with the Fanatec wheel to offer force feedback.

    Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't sell this wheel, so you'll have to get it from either Gamestop or Fry's. ... Read more

    This game is sort of like Twister meets Simon Says. Lay the Hullabaloo pads around on the floor about two 'kid's feet' away from each other. The pads are different shapes and colors and have pictures and words on them. Turn on the game console and the cheerful music begins, a happy voice welcomes you to the game and then gives the simple directions you'll need to play. "Jump on a square shape," "Slide over to a red shape," "Hop to a shape with an animal on it" and so on. Then it might tell you to freeze, or to put a body part on one pad, and then a different body part on another. Then, it'll tell you that if you are on a particular pad at the end of that round, you are the winner. We found it to be fun, and easy to understand--though we did wonder how long it might hold a child's interest. --Megan Sullivan ... Read more

    Non-Stop Fun
    I bought this for my two year old's birthday. We played it with her 5,6,11,12,& 13 year old Uncles and cousins. The older kids played it all that night and all day the next day. My two year old thought it was fun to run around on the pads, but she was able to point at her nose when they said "nose" and point at her knee when they said "knee". Even some of the adults got in on the fun. Very fun game for all ages.

    IGNORE any bad review! This is AWESOME!
    My 3 year old daughter got this game as a gift and she LOVES to play! My 7 year old also LOVES this game! It is really cute and anytime they play - someone is giggling. (...). It is a good oppotrunity to teach children about being a good winner/loser no matter who wins. That said- this game is just plain fun! I've even played this one with my kids and we all have a good time. You can't go wrong with this!

    "Winners"also means there are "losers"!
    I bought this for my two 4 1/2 year-old grandchildren. They really liked it at first until one child "won" several times in a row and the other hadn't "won" at all. The idea is basically very good, but I don't like the "winners-losers" aspect at all. It's totally inappropriate for this age, and even for older children, there is nothing they can do to "win"- it's all random. In addition, I would have liked it to be a little slower paced for pre-schoolers (more time to "skip to the square" or do a dance between games, etc.). I wouldn't buy another one or advise others to do so.

    We love this game!
    My children, ages 6 and 3, got this for Christmas and are still playing it regularly. As a mom, I really love it, too, because it's one of very few games they can set up, play and put away all by themselves (great for them, and even better if I need to get something done!).

    The battery-operated box was very easy for them to learn, and they get a kick out of the silly things it instructs them to do. Many, many thumbs up from our family! :-)

    Very Fun Toy
    My kids loved this toy. Even my 2 year old could play. It is a really great family game and changes everytime you play. Lots of fun! ... Read more
