    Editorial Review

    Little ones who crave the feel of a real car will love scooting about in this sturdy aqua and yellow plastic automobile. Like the cartoon character Fred Flintstone, children use the steering wheel for direction control (front wheels turn easily) while making the car go with their foot power. Only the driver's-side door opens and children can sit on a bench-style seat with legs poking down to the ground for easy feet access. Dash accessories include a pretend car key, a beeping horn button, a decal gas gauge, and a speedometer. An ample storage compartment in the back can hold pretend tools, emergency road supplies, or simply a snack for the road. Approximately 35 inches tall, 31 inches long, and 18 inches wide. --Gail Hudson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Grand Coupe is a hit at our house!
    I was a little apprehensive at first about getting this for my son's first birthday, we live in an apartment and I didn't know if this would take up too much space and end up collecting dust. But it was the best gift for him, HE LOVES IT! He loves to get in and open and close the door and the trunk also has a lid that he likes to put things in and close up (although I couldn't find my keys yesterday and looked in the trunk of the "Coupe" and there they were!). My husband was thinking our son wouldn't like it because it is difficult for such a little child to move but he loves it even if it is just sitting still! And of course daddy enjoys rolling his boy around the house in it! We also have a 4 yr. old niece who comes over to play and she has a great time in the Grand Coupe too. Rushing off to places, putting her doll into the "car seat" (the trunk with the lid open). I think this will be a favorite toy here for a long time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars "A great car"!
    My son has had this Grand Coupe Car for atleast 4 months. The high quality & overal shape for little tots to get in & out work out great! My 23 month old loves to get in, slam the door closed, & even turn the key that makes a click-sound. His overrall favorite part is that he loves being mobile & also if a grown-up pushes him around the house or outside. Mine gets the giggles whenever we do that. Little tikes also sells the gas pump that can attach to this car. There is a gas cap on the left side of the car. Kids get a kick out of pretending to fill up the tank! Also the feature my son also likes is the trunck in the back to store small favorite items! We are very please with this ride-in toy car! Highly recommend!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Grand Coupe deserves it name!
    When I was little I used to have one now I am going to get one for my brother. I work at a day care and they have one and all the kids do is fight over who gets to ride in the big boy car. It is a must have if you have a little kid. They all love it. They are probably going to buy another one for the day car because it is so popular. They got a Gamecube at the day care, but everyone still insists on using the Grand Coupe. There are kids from 6 months up to 7 years to older kids ride on top. No one has ever gotten hurt. It is the best toy. One time they where fighting over who got to go in it and they accidently pulled of the door the company sent a new door with all the hardware! It is a great buy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good quality
    This car seems to be really sturdy and built better than other brands. My toddlers love it and fight over who gets to ride.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Discerning Toddler, with discerning Dad, highly approve
    My Daughter has an elevated sense of taste, even at 2 1/2.
    She liked, but didn't love, the original Cozy Coupe. She wanted the Grand Coupe, no questions. She and I ordered it from Amazon, through ToysRus. The order was simple, the delivery was exactly as forecast. The assembly was also simple, a screw gun helps, although I didn't try it without one.
    As far as the car itself goes after a week or so of use....
    Four thumbs up!!!!
    She rides in it, watches her favorite programming in it, plays independently with it, we play together with it, if I let her she'd likely sleep in there too. She's thrilled, which, of course, means that I am thrilled.
    The trunk, or rumble seat, is a big plus, you'd be surprised how much a little thing like that means to a little person. Scruffy the dog loves it back there, a ton of necklaces, bracelets, rings, and two or three juice cups fit nicely too.
    I will do ANYTHING for her, if you feel thusly, buy it, it's the Benz of ride ons.
    Gotta get a gas pump, mileage is not as good as we expected. Five Stars anyway.
    Fantastic Toy!!! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars A different kind of RPG
    With a unique spin on the Final Fantasy type combat system Shadow Hearts manages to keep your interest. Ever feel in a FF game like you could just sit there holding down one button to get through the whole game? Well, at least Shadow Hearts keeps you awake by making you work for each hit (and many actions)with their "judgement ring"; stop the spinning arm at the right moment or either fail or reduce the quality of an action.
    In addition to the above they also get a pretty good plot going, using Earth geography in what I guess is supposed to be pre-great-war Europe and Asia. You travel, you search, you fight, its got good variety.
    The major downside to the game is the system of enhancing weapons and the amount of money it costs vs. the amount of money you can get reasonably. Also, it's got some fairly adult themes and at a couple of points in the game you can't help but to think that some of the designers would have benefitted from some serious therapy. Lastly, it is made to make you buy a hint guide (or download one)without which there were many aspects of the game that were just undiscoverable. But, if there are no kids around and you want to get engrossed in a dark, gothic game but no longer have the dexterity of a 9-year-old (its not a shootemup) go pick up the game and enjoy the heck out of it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most excellent!
    I really loved this game. I'm a big fan of RPGs and this reminded me forcefully of a RPG (Not computer/game console based) I used to play with a number of college friends. The dark fantasy story line appealed to me greatly, and there was even a romance sub-plot (better & better). I liked the Judgement Ring, which helped pull you into the game, since you actually had to concentrate on the controls in order to get it right; in the beginning, it's just as if you're learning the skill along with the characters, and the level of difficulty in making the hits can get harder (but not impossible). Lots of monsters and villians for you to kill, too. Characters are good, and I'm glad they finally added Sanity Point system to a dark fantasy RPG. My only peeves: 1. The main female protagonist has a very low pointage (on almost all counts except magic) in the beginning, but if you're patient enough to level her up, she has a final spell that will knock just about everyone's socks off. 2: Some of the secrets are very hard to find out about; even though I've beaten the game a couple of times, I still haven't gotten through all the side-quests (Hee, hee). But still and all, this a great game. Check it out if you want something just a little bit different.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A poor man's Final Fantasy X that will please many RPG fans.
    Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's a Final Fantasy clone! This may be the first thing that pops in your head after playing Shadow Hearts. As a matter of fact, the developer of Shadow Hearts is a company founded by several ex-Final Fantasy designers and they aren't shy about borrowing many of Final Fantasy's famous RPG trademarks. That's good, though, because if there is one series worth copying, it's Final Fantasy and while Shadow Hearts doesn't have the same classic touch that its PS2 peer Final Fantasy X does, it will be an enjoyable playing experience for many PS2 RPG fans.

    Set in early 20th century China, Shadow Hearts begins with the introductions of an atypical hero, Yuri, the damsel in distress, Alice, and the notorious sorcerer, Roger Bacon. Forced to obey mysterious voices in his head, the game opens with a cut scene of Yuri following these same voices by saving Alice from her captor, Roger Bacon. We discover that Bacon has killed Alice's father and seeks to use her for some unknown purpose. After a lucky rescue, Yuri and Alice flee from the powerful Roger Bacon and escape via the Chinese countryside. From here, the adventure continues as Yuri and Alice meet several friends and enemies along the way which all combine for an intriguing RPG storyline.

    The action system in Shadow Hearts is truly a unique invention. All combat and game essential actions are decided by the "Judgment Ring." After choosing which magic or attack you will use, a sphere-shaped object appears on your screen and a small hand quickly revolves around it. Your goal is to click your controller when this hand reaches vital green areas of the sphere. You can also increase your damage or positive magic traits by timing it just right and hitting the button as soon as the the hand reaches a smaller red area. Throughout the game, you will encounter many items and creatures that can adjust your Judgment Ring during combat by slowing it down, increasing the green hit area or even penalizing you by speeding it up or shrinking it. In its entirety, the Judgment Ring adds an element of randomness in all actions and gamers with quick reflexes will especially be rewarded. Don't let this scare you away, though, because Shadow Hearts still requires strategy. Certain attacks will inflict more damage on specific enemies. Final Fantasy fans will recognize the elemental combat system, although it's been slightly altered.

    A long story and an involved turn-based combat system make for plenty of hours of gaming and Shadow Hearts isn't recommended for gamers who enjoy fast-paced games. Even for an RPG, Shadow Hearts moves at an incredibly slow pace and admittedly can be boring at times. All dialog is text based, not voiced over, so if you don't like heavy reading games, this title is definitely not for you. The game opens with an exciting opening cut scene and also some impressive CGI cut scenes near the finale but in between, it doesn't put much effort into its cinematics. There are a few short cut scenes with unimpressive pictures and average voice actors that attempt to enhance the story, but they don't do a very good job. It has its shortcomings at times, but overall, it's still a grand story and one of the better RPG tales this reviewer has played on a console.

    The graphics in Shadow Hearts are not spectacular. It looks like more effort was put into the story and gameplay than graphics which isn't always a bad thing. The sound is average. The music does a good job of setting the mood of the game's dark atmosphere but sometimes the creepy tunes can get too repetitive and annoying. If you're thinking about allowing children or younger siblings to play this game, there are plenty of jokes that reference adult sexual humor so you may want to check it out first before allowing young ones a go at it.

    Shadow Hearts is not a bad RPG at all. It's probably one of the premiere turn-based RPGs on the PlayStation2. Already, a sequel has been released in Japan and an English version is being prepared for a North American release. It's a slightly different slant on the JRPG genre and a satisfying game that will keep gamers hooked until the end as long as they can handle a slow-paced game. There are several copies of Shadow Hearts available for trade at GTZ so it's an easy game to find which is a good thing because this game takes many hours to complete and won't be finished with a weekend rental. It's also not as highly valued as some of the PS2's newer and more popular releases so you might be able to find a bargain on it. If you're someone who enjoys playing Japanese role-playing games or in-depth stories, my recommendation is to give this game a try. After the experience, you may find yourself eagerly awaiting the sequel. I know I am.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
    *Grins* This game is incredibly awesome. I would place this game up there along with FF games. The graphics are as good andthe storyline are just as great. The only different about this game is the fact that the main character is a horny fella, named Yuri. Yes, you heard me. Horny! LOL! There are ocassional testerone drive dialogues in this game so I don't really recommend kids to play this game. Girls are the weaker characters in the games, and yes in some levels you have to play her.

    The story goes mostly like, girl in trouble, guy save girl, guy turn demony evil, guy turn back good, and so on. Yuri, the main character has these weird flashbacks that gives him bad migraines.

    The only problem I have with this game is the bad, is the clock dial thing. You have to click in the right moment with your controller to get a good power attack. It's tough at first but it gets easier each time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great game
    Shadow Hearts is an interesting game. Rather than taking place in a fantasy setting, like most RPGs, it takes place in a more supernatural version of our own world.
    Virtually everything about this game is great. The hero, Yuri, is one my favorite videogame protagonists- interesting, well fleshed-out, and engaging. A lot of the dialogue is hilarious. The plot is interesting and VERY unpredictable, and some of the scnearios create a genuine sense of fear and unease.
    The battles are a lot of fun, with the use of the "Judgement Ring" ring system, so that the fights are a test of reflexes as well as strategy.
    The only fly in the ointment is the graphics. They're not as bad as some reviews here suggest, by any means, but they are somewhat lackluster. But don't let that stop you from overlooking this great game. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Conker's Bad Fur Day is for adults, the ESRB has rated thisgame Mature; it should not be bought for--or played by or around--children. That stated, the story of the game is the following: Conker's very good night turns into a very bad day. He has to deal with a crazy and abusive world, all while suffering through a massive hangover. Conker encounters abusive paint pots; jabbering dung beetles; trigger-happy, scar-faced Tediz; and a belligerent giant, with only a frying pan as a means of self-defense. He is resourceful, however, and makes the best of his situation. The game combines elements of 3-D exploration, combat, and puzzle solving. It features cinematic cutscenes, movie parodies, facial expressions, dozens of unhinged characters, and 1- to 4-player deathmatch games in a variety of styles. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rare's done it again with its best game since Perfect Dark!
    Back in 1997, people saw previews of "Twelve Tales: Conker 64," and they saw a happy, chipper squirrel in a blue vest parading around a world so sugar coated and sappy, it would have made Yoshi vomit. And then it simply disappeared. About a year ago, though, the news broke: "Conker" was to be a new, adult-themed game like no other. And so I waited. And waited. And finally, I have gotten and beaten Conker's Bad Fur Day. And oh yes, it was well worth the wait. Conker's BFD is simply a fantastic game. Combining amazing visuals, a soundtrack that's impossible to beat, and more humor seen this side of Monty Python, Conker is the N64's last hurrah; and what an ironic hurrah it is, that an adult game of this caliber would bring to a close what many consider a "kiddie" system. Every word in this game is spoken -- no easy feat on a cartridge system -- with character's mouths lip-synched perfectly to the dialog. The realtime lighting is great; Conker's shadow is forever on the move as multiple light sources swing to and fro. The game offers a variety of gameplay modes, from tank driving to corridor shooting to classic platforming. The multiplayer mode is also great; plenty of options (including the ingenious neo-classic "Beach" mode), and bots, as well. There's even a code that lets the camera zoom around particularly nasty deaths, Matrix-style. Simply put, buy this game! It's so funny, so beautiful, and so brilliant; in sheer polish, it's far beyond anything seen on Sony's latest DVD pla ... er, console ;-) While this game is short compared to other Rare offerings, it's short in the way good movies are short, the way your favorite songs aren't twelve minute Meatloaf rock operas. Conker is an amazing ride, and with plenty of challenge, no pointless collecting, and a Chapters mode that let's you play your favorite areas over and over, this is indeed a magnificent, irreverent swan song for Nintendo's 64-bit machine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent all-around game
    Conker's Bad Fur Day was the one of the final games for the Nintendo 64, and it went out with a bang. This game is often crude, obscene, violent and disgusting, but is always fun. A smart parody of a typical 3D platformer, CBFD follows a smart-mouthed squirrel named Conker as he tries to get home after a night of heavy drinking at the local tavern. As the title would suggest, things don't go quite as planned, and Conker ends up in a number of crazy situations with equally crazy characters. Also popping up regularly are humorous pastiches on a number of films; Terminator, The Matrix, and Saving Private Ryan are just a few that show up in the course of the game.

    The game has scant few flaws, but one that can be very frustrating is that it isn't always clear what the next step is, and since the plot is, for the most part, very linear, one often has to wander around until they figure out what to do. But once you're on the path, the game is a fun, challenging, engaging experience with a variety of levels and much more replay value than one might expect from its 'adult' gimmicks. Another factor in the game is that all the characters are voiced, with high-quality acting and great use of comic timing. Much of the humor comes from the extremely well-done cutscenes, as well as a lot of humorous subtleties hidden around the game (leave Conker standing in an area for a while to see what I mean). The graphics are what we've come to expect from Rare; above average if not excellent, and the style of them is in perfect complement to the tone of the game. One of the extra features allows to start from a certain point in the game, allowing you to play your favorite parts as many times as you like without affecting your game progress.

    CBFD also has a selection of seven multiplayer games based on events in the game, all of which are very original and fun to play by yourself and with friends. They include a jetboard race, a bank heist, a tank battle, a capture-the-flag style war game, the obligatory all-out deathmatch, and more.

    Overall, this game is good (though certainly not clean) fun, and excels in almost every area. If you have a N64, you should definitely have picked this game up by now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars da best
    Naturally i dont like creature games but this one got my attention and kept it. Who knew a squrrel vs. teddiz war would be so addicting. With a wide variety of guns and game types this has great multiplayer and single player game modes. Well to finish up it kept the title da best.

    Conker's Bad Fur Day is one of the very best titles on the N64.

    At last, your collection of hand puppets can get the home--or rather the workplace--it deserves. Sturdily constructed from wood, this traditional Punch and Judy puppet theatre requires no tools for assembly. You can write the time, or other relevant information, on the chalkboard panel just below the stage. The facade is held in a vertical position with simple red wooden feet. The theatre measures 58 inches high, 29 inches wide, and 15 inches deep. --Richard Farr ... Read more

    Not as Advertised
    I am sort of shocked that this toy is still being described as a theatre with a clock and two puppets. Amazon had assured me that they would change the item's description.

    I ordered this item and was surprised that the picture on the box was a different theatre than the one I had ordered, I opened it and found that it is a theatre with no clock and no puppets. I contacted amazon and they said that the description was wrong and that it would be changed immediateley. They sent me a returned merchandise authorization. But it was a day before my Daughter's 5th Birthday and she had been staring at the box for days and decided she wanted it. So we kept it. We found puppets elsewhere.

    As for durabillity and fun, it has stayed together with 2 rough and rowdy kids. They rarely use it for puppets though, it's a fort and a lemonade stand and a store and the DMV (LOL)!

    My daughter uses the little chalkboard to practice writing a lot and the tear away curtains delight my son. One word of caution, the little star toggles used to keep the curtains pulled back come off with minimal effort and do pose a choking hazard. My son is 2, so I pulled them off and hid them till he's older.

    All in all it's a good theatre, and well made as all the Alex toys are, it gets used every day.

    My daughter still says that she wishes it had come with a clock though. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    To say that Shenmue is an anticipated title is an understatement;the game made huge waves in Japan upon its release, and American gamers havebeen waiting since then to see what the fuss is all about. It's a game in whichthe concept itself is the selling point. What if you could portray a young heroin a fully realized Japanese city? Would you like to participate in andinfluence an over-the-top kung fu-style action-mystery flick in your livingroom? What if lots of combat, cinematic flourish, detail, and a dash of romancewere thrown in?

    The game itself is awash in small details, crammed into a confined space. Thecity of Yokusuka circa 1986 is rendered beautifully in a short series ofneighborhoods that are long on detail even if short on variety. The story itselfis ripped straight from a chopsocky flick: you portray the young hero RyoHazuki, whose father (a kung fu sensei, naturally) is killed before hisvery eyes by a mysterious and frightening villain. Ryo must uncover the identityof the killer and fight his way through the city in an effort to avenge thiswrongful death.

    Shenmue's Yokusuka might be short on space--in total, it represents maybea square mile--but the detail is overwhelming. You can interact with nearlyevery person or object that you see; 300 citizens go about their daily routines,and whom you encounter is as much determined by where you are as when you arethere.

    Much of this interaction involves combat that ranges fromDragon's Lair-style reaction tests (such as timing a button press tododge an oncoming car) to freeform kung fu fighting. Further, each second ofreal time equals about a minute of game time, and Ryo has to be home by 11 p.m.each evening. The game moves at a brisk pace, and each challenge or battle feelslike a race against time. Some might say that gaming doesn't get shallower thanthis (you are essentially performing tasks and exploring, instead of gaming),but the game feels like no other and is ultimately satisfying by the time thatit all ends. In this way, Shenmue is more than a game--it's an eventthat's worth experiencing. --Andrew S. Bub

    Pros:

    • Compelling, well-told story
    • Good action and combat
    • Fantastic sound and graphics
    Cons:
    • Plot is familiar to fans of kung fu action films
    • Task-and-exploration gameplay might seem slow to action gamers

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome game! I got an XBOX in anticipation of Shenmue 2!
    A game that redefines realism in video games. Shenmue features a reproduction of a living, breathing Japanese town and warehouse district with real townspeople and a realistic clock system. You take the role of Ryo and essentially live his life. You must set out to do errands, tasks, work a job and go to sleep all according to the clock. You can elect to spend your time any way you wish! Spend the day shopping or playing games at the arcade? Rainy day? Stay inside and play the Sega Saturn or train in your dojo? The choice is yours!

    Think of this as Virtua Fighter in a real-life RPG setting. A big part of the game (though not entirely necessary) revolves around learning and discovering new moves and practicing until your proficiency improves. The main task involves you finding out who killed your father and you'll do some unique things and meet some interesting people as you search for the answer.

    There's so much to see and do in Shenmue, I've yet to see any game like it! This is by far my favorite DC game...some may knock it for the fact that the game operates on a slow pace (stores open and close at certain times, etc) and the fact that there's little action. They may be right in some respects, but that's the appeal of the game. The fighting is minimal as are the QTE events, but the game, like most RPG's is slower paced to allow you to enjoy the story. I find the frequency of fights to be perfect...you'll begin to get a sense how and why they occur and its great fun when you're heavily outnumbered to unleash those moves you've spent hours training!

    Should you buy it? Let's just say that a major reason why I purchased an XBOX on launch day is to play the XBOX-enhanced port of SHENMUE II! Play it and take your time, you'll enjoy it!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Graphics. Okay, Now Where is the Replay Value?
    When I bought this game on the basis of the critic reviews it got, I was anxious to pop this game into my system. I played it, and I'll tell you: it's by far the best graphic and technoligical game I've seen (not far behind is Skies of Arcadia, NFL 2K1, and Rayman 2). I'll come right out and admit this is my 2nd RPG I've ever played in my life (1st, Chrono Cross which is a cool game). However, I played Shenmue with such low RPG strategy experience and it was so incredibly easy. This game took me about 13 hours max to beat (Chrono Cross took me at least 40 hours to beat), and I had no feeling to play it anymore. The storyline was pale and repetitive down to the pint where I want to pop my Dreamcast open and wreck the disc with a 200 ton mallet (not possible, unfortunately). What I'll say is that this game deserves three stars because it is beautifully created graphically, but I see absolutely no replay value or lasting appeal to this game, thus, in my opinion, no reason to spend 50 bucks on it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of gaming
    Shenmue is truly a masterpiece, for the many days I spent playing this game I was emerged into the story, the environments, the thoughts, the dramas, of Ryo's life in Yokusuka. Among the other games I played, only the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time comes on par, and to those who played that through and through know that's saying alot. Get a DC if you don't have one, this game is worth it, and to those who have a DC already you're missing out on possibly the best SEGA release (or any release by the way). You won't think twice about playing the sequel after this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Game Ever
    Shenmue has got to be one of the greatest games ever, if not the best game. It has everything you want in a game: action, adventure, fighting, RPG, and even a little driving. Don't listen to people like themindzi, he is probably someone who only plays stupid games like Grand Theft Auto and doesn't apreciate the originality of Shenmue. Believe me, there is no other game like Shenmue, which shows that a game just does not get any more original and innovative than that. I own Shenmue 1 and 2 for Dreamcast, and I can't wait for the next one to come out on Xbox. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Don't diss the dating, real women don't ask such things
    Ignore those people who whine about the graphics. They fail to notice how much more detailed and stylized the characters and enemies are in it. I'm bored of the same old ff7 fights. And think of the people on the map and towns as little SD's running around!

    Thousand Arms is different. Different not always necessarily good, but in my opinion this is. After playing games that are much too serious and focus too much on graphics (FF8) its nice to be able to actually enjoy and laugh in a game.

    If you give it a chance and maybe get an online walkthrough (just in case right? ^_~) you'll have a great time. This sort of game can actually make you _want_ to defeat a boss. Be it for a corny attack phrase or even a pompous voice. Maybe that character was really really asking for a beating? Many of them do, especially this one guy man was he asking for it... anyway

    There are several hilarious scenes in it, very memorable. Overall this game surprised, impressed, amused, enraged, and won my respect as a great attempt at an rpg. 4 stars for some small qualms of mine.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A fun romp through the world of Dating Sims...
    Thousand Arms is a Dating Sim turned RPG. That's really what you have to call it because it still holds most strongly to the elements of a Dating Sim-- not to say it doesn't have depth.

    I personally thought the graphics were fine, I prefer 2D much more than 3D graphics, and the anime style was fitting. The game wouldn't have been the same if it was CG graphics.

    The battle system was a fairly new approach, but it wasn't to my liking. You only get to battle with one character at a time, while the other characters may do things like cast support magic, etc. Personally, I didn't like this approach, because it closes off the freedom to do things like combos, etc. But it is always nice to have someone in the back ranks to keep as a designated healer, etc.

    The dungeons were a little tedious and repetitve at times, although I didn't think the random battles were too excessive. The dungeons weren't as interactive or fun as one might hope, they were more like long tedious puzzles that you want to get through as fast as possible.

    The dating part of the game was interesting, especially because some of the questios the girls ask are so absurd! You date the different woman throughout the game, and depending on how good of a time they had you can raise their Intimacy level. By doing this you are able to forge different types of weapons. They also may give you a kiss, and eventually you will be able to collect the kisses you get and trade them in for items.

    All of the characters were cute, and fun to get to know. Meis is a likable guy, and they chose to do voice-overs which I thought went over pretty well. I don't like voice-overs at all in my games, but it was a good casting and it didn't bother me as much as most.

    In the end, I would reccomend trying out the game first from a rental store and seeing how you like it. It appeals to different people on different levels. Most people either love it, or they hate it... and few tolerate it.

    If it sounds interesting enough to you, go for it and buy! You get some nice little goodies too.

    3-0 out of 5 stars ok game
    Ive played this game years ago and it's just ok. The things i like about the game is that it has good graphics, hot girls such as Sodina, and the weapons from this game is superb. However this game is not as good as Final Fantasy VII and the other Square Soft games. So my rating for this game is a 7 out of 10.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good game...but
    It can get very "stupid" at times, but, there is a lot of fun in the game and many funny parts in it as well. Females might get "offended" by some of the dateing parts in the game, but please remember its only a game ok, even if the game is a bit "pigish". Very good cartoon graphics.

    Started good, BUT...
    This game started out very interesting, but as it wore on, i got bored and just stopped playing. I was interested in the idea of a dating sim incorporated into an RPG, but honestly, it got old. It was funny at first, but eventually i just wanted to get on with the story, and of course the fighting, which was pretty lacking. Overall, it didnt keep my interest, and it left me asking myself, "What the heck was THAT supposed to be?" ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Three years ago, gamers were introduced to Aya as she resigned from theNew York Police Department and enlisted as a NMC (neo-mitochondrion creature)hunter for the shadowy government organization M.I.S.T., a secret agency ofmonster slayers somewhere between Ghostbusters and Men in Black.Wherever there was a neo-mitochondrion outbreak, Aya and her team were on thescene to put the boots to the mutants. From the outset, it's evident thatSquareSoft revamped the entire game to give gamers a better looking, sounding,and (most importantly) playing experience.

    The game starts with Aya training in the agency's shooting gallery in LosAngeles. Just as she begins to get in a groove, she is asked to look into somestrange happenings at the Akropolis Tower. When she arrives on the scene, anexplosive, full-motion video flashes across the screen and showcases the deathand carnage as Aya surveys the scene. Her entry into the Tower is where this RPGbegins.

    SquareSoft has kept some of the excellent elements of the weapons systems fromthe first Parasite Eve title, but went for an entirely new battle system.Combat is delivered in real time and allows players to run, hide, and open fire.Aya can tap into her parasitic powers and can unleash elemental, magic-basedattacks on the many foes she encounters. Ammunition is plentiful in the game andthere are plenty of entertaining weapons to choose from. Auto targeting andinvolving puzzles are back, though the arrow-pointing interface for solvingthese puzzles is really hard to operate.

    The cinematic mix of story and action is very well done, and the numerouscutscenes do an excellent job of moving the pace along in a believable way.

    Even though the original Parasite Eve had its problems, SquareSoft haspieced together an excellent sequel that will satisfy fans of the first game andhelp create many new ones. --Todd Mowatt

    Pros:

    • New, real-time battle system is an improvement over first ParasiteEve
    • Great weapons and plentiful ammunition
    • Great mix of story and action
    Cons:
    • Clunky interface for solving puzzles

    4-0 out of 5 stars My review and a response to all the complaints...
    First off, I would like to express my feelings about PE2. OK I'll admit I haven't beaten the game yet, but what I have played is simply astounding in my opinion because I am not looking at the game from an RPG perspective. I have seen enough of the game to figure out that Square put PE2 in the wrong genre. PE2 belongs in the survival-horror genre with such greats as Resident Evil and Dino Crisis. I also feel the same goes for the original Parasite Eve. I also feel that the game would've been better if Aya had stayed in New York and developed her relationships with the characters in PE. The graphics in the game are a major leap forward when compared to the original. I would place them on the same standards as Final Fantasy 9. The backgrounds are very realistic and the character motion is pretty fluid until the character comes up close. The sound and cinematics are fantastic as well. Most of your surroundings are pretty quiet, very fitting for a survival-horror title. All in all, the only thing I feel that qualifies this game as an RPG is its STORY. Most survival-horror games don't have a story. I would say that PE2 is a combination of both. Just like the original Parasite Eve.

    Now my response to peoples' complaints... After reading all 20 of the reviews for this product, one complaint stands out above all of them....Play control. Many of the reviewers say it is terrible. Obviously, they haven't played the Resident Evil series, which has basically the same controls. My tip is, don't use the analog sticks if you are trying to get used to the controls. The D-Pad provides a better amount of control than the sticks. Second, use the shooting range. That's what it's there for!

    The second complaint was about the battle system. I happen to love the real-time battle because it adds to the realism of the game. In fact, I feel the next Final Fantasy title should have a real-time battle system. The system in PE2 allows you to dodge an enemy's attack or even run and hide. Can you do that in any of the Final Fantasy games? Didn't think so. Trust me. Give it some time and you'll grow to love it.

    The last complaint that stood out was that many of the enemies were too difficult. I feel sorry for you, really. If you want easy enemies, go out and buy Doom or Quake and enjoy the one-shot kills. Having harder enemies in a game is a MAJOR plus no matter what game it is. RPGs and Survival-Horror games are meant to have enemies that aren't killed in one shot and ammo is plentiful. What is the first word in "Survival Horror?" If you put one-shot kills in this genre, games would be TOO easy. These types of games were MEANT to TAKE TIME to finish. Get over it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Parasite Eve 2: The Mitochondria Strike Back
    Guess what? They're back. The evil mitochondria from the first PE have shown up and this time they're crashing the party in Los Angeles. To top it off Aya is back. Is it just me or is she a little bigger (as in chubbier) and has bleached white hair. Making a return appearance is Eve, only this time she is a sweet innocent little girl. Lets get to it. The game is a very interesting hybrid. It is an RPG mixed with action, strategy, and plays like Resident Evil. This gives it some strengths and some glaring weaknesses. The strengths: the major strength lies in the battle system. It is real-time, so move your whatever or it will get knocked down, action. You move, shot and reload all while your enemy is sneaking up on you. It makes the game play like Resident Evil basically. The magic system has been revamped as well. Instead of gaining spells as you gain levels (levels have been done away with entirely), you gain experience in battle and use it to invoke the spells (12 in !all). The spells follow the fire, earth, wind, and water elements so you can figure out which element's abilities are. Trite isn't it. The controls have also been fine-tuned but can still be quite maddening. This occurs when ever you need to haul [...] fast, like in the Reactor battle. Sometimes it is just easier to use the digital controls instead of the analog. The negatives include the story, or rather the dialouge. The dialouge seems like it was written by a second grader that knew some big words. It's sad really, the first Parasite Eve was written very well. The only saving grace are Aya thoughts. These come up whenever she looks at items and the background. In one such example she looks at a toilet once and says "Wow that's a nice toilet." Look at it again and she says "dear God I need to get out more." Some rather humorous things can be found by analyzing everything till she repeats herself (well I thought they were humorous). The other negative is this massive problem !I have with so-called goverment conspiricies in video games (and the world in general). They may happen in real life but they always seem tacked on in video games, and this game reeks with them. The games main part happens in Area 252 in Nevada while Aya looks for UFOs relating to NMC activity. Can anyone say Area 51? I almost got sick of watching the scenes in the White House, and is it just me or did Clinton call Aya "very attractive?" (Get the best ending if you need explaination.) The story would of been much better if it was handled by the same group that did Vagrant Story. Now there was a good story and awe-inspiring dialouge. Also, this isn't the silent era anymore. If a game is described as a cinematic RPG (like PE and PE2) it should have real voice everywhere, not just one worders here and there. The game Koudelka isn't a cinematic RPG and everything except item describtions is spoken (rather well too). PE2 would have been much better with voice acting, even if it !would mean adding a third disk because of memory limitations. Well with that said. My recommendation is to get the game if you can overlook the flaws. Just make sure that you get the player's guide too. It is almost impossible to get the best ending without it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Squaresoft scores with a flashy new sequel
    Okay, a disease that quickly infects people and animals rips flesh, opens sores and disease quickly erodes all resemblance to what they once were and transforms them into rabid beasts. Don't you just hate it when that happens.

    While completely unbelievable, I find myself quickly immersed with Parasite Eve II. An attractive woman called Aya Brea with a hardened background in New York crime fighting is back again fighting 'NMCs', neo-mitochondria, basically the disease mentioned above.

    I'm impressed with the realistic graphics and the all-too chilling cutscenes and rampant beasts; some are laudable, some disgusting, some chilling. Parasite Eve II now has an even darker glow to it, but loses it's RPG edge in place of Action/Adventure.

    I really love how anyone can sit down and play this without ever hearing of the first game, its a solid game with a good storyline. I can always play this game again and with more than one possible ending and multiple difficulties there is little chance I'll be bored.

    I give this four stars, mainly because I think the lines could have been snappier, the people sometime off-character and there are quite a few angles later in the game that are very annoying to manuever around. Otherwise this a great game that is worth the nine bucks they sell it for.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not like PE 1, easily better (no spoilers)
    If you hated PE 1, then you'll really like PE 2. Unfortunately, if you hated PE 1, you wont likely give PE 2 a chance. I wasn't going to either. PE 2 did a complete 180 in terms of gameplay. This was really needed since PE 1 had a promising many-sequel story but an execution not expected of Square. PE 1 is a very unique RPG, with repetitive and extremely dull gameplay. PE 2 is much more lively! Plays more like RE 2 or RE 3, without voice acting. Lack of voice acting is the only reason I gave it only 4 stars. This game may remind people of RE, but it is quite unique on its own.

    If there is to be a PE 1 Rebirth, then gameplay needs to be more up to date. Voice acting is a must for any serious game today.

    I initially hated PE 1, but today I find its "slower" gameplay not as bad.

    If Parasite Eve is to have a different voice actress for each sequel, then that's fine with me. I don't want Aya to be removed from the series the way Regina was from Dino Crisis. Neither do I want Aya to start fading from the series the way Solid Snake faded out of MGS: Sons of Liberty. Game sequels can be ruined easily, if the favorite main character no longer appears in them. If you can't keep the main voice actor, then at least keep the main character!

    NO ONE CAN MAKE A GAME LIKE THIS EVER AGAIN
    Parasite Eve 2...what else I can say greatest game on playstation and really no one can make a game like this ever again.I finished this game three times. I bought this game in year of 2000 first it was very hard to stay alive,solving the puzzles And after years I became the ultimate parasite eve master.The story;this game starts after 3 year of new york blocade accident.The main character is Aya Brea she is working for MIST (mithocondria investigate and suppression team) and living in Los Angeles she is very emotinal girl trying to forget 3 years ago and her primary mission is killing all the nmc(neo-mithocondrian creatures) you're starting the game at MIST centre and after some shooting training you're on your way to the Akropolis Tower to nailing those bastards after you pass that you will go to hot desert nevada %90 percent of this game will be completed in there.So no more hint,here is the characters Aya Brea:Very emotinal girl working for the MIST Kyle Madigan:Working for P.I a secret government Aya save him everytime but when Aya need help he disappears No.9:mysterious men working for a secret government He is the ultimate enemy of Aya Gary Douglas:He is a vietnam veteran and he has a motel at Nevada He also has a huge of weapon collection when Aya needs help he rescue her Eve:Clone of Aya's child hood Pierce carradin:working for the MIST Aya's best friend Baldwin:working for MIST he has a big magnum he is the one of the greatest hunters in MIST Rupert Broderick:Chairman of the MIST very angry man.thats all ...

    Editorial Review

    The third installment of the series that redefined the survival horrorvideo game genre, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis is the best ResidentEvil yet. As Jill Valentine, one of the original game's survivors, playersmust fight for their lives while fleeing a city overrun by hordes of zombies andother hideous creatures mutated by a sinister corporation's biotechnologicalvirus. To make thing worse, a near-invincible monstrosity known as the Nemesisstalks Jill throughout the game, which raises the series' suspense level to anall-new high.

    In addition to the constant threat of the Nemesis, Resident Evil 3features other gameplay elements new to the series: players can now dodgeattacks, perform quick 180-degree turns, and create ammunition by mixinggunpowder types. Also, the "Live Selection" feature forces players to makedecisions that affect the story's direction.

    While none of these additions are particularly groundbreaking, Resident Evil3 keeps the player in suspense and the action even more intense than in itspredecessors, proving that more of same can be a good--make that very,very good--thing in a sequel. --Joe Hon

    Pros:

    • Suspenseful and thoroughly engrossing storyline
    • Excellent use of topnotch graphics and sound to establish mood
    • Improved controls and faster load time between scenes
    • The Mercenaries secret game adds serious replay value

    Cons:

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good game, but not as strong as RE2
    Resident Evil 3 brings back the excitement and horror of the previous two games, but is lacking something. There is nothing new about this sequel-- in fact, some features have been lost. The game is only one disc, and there is only one playable character (except for a short section). RE3 loses the replay value RE2 had because the story is the same every time through. The enemies appear in different places, though, and there is a neat reward bonus game which can affect the supplies the player has in the real game. Still, this doesn't provide the same amount of gameplay RE2 had.

    Also, the "Nemesis" which tracks Jill through the story gets to be a real pain, leading to lots of running and shooting instead of story progression.

    Finally, maybe I missed something, but the plot here is a big jump from the last game, in which Leon and Claire were searching for Chris, Jill, and other STARS members. Yet Jill was in the city the entire time?

    Rent this game if you are a fan of the series or if it looks interesting to you. But it isn't as big of a step up as the last sequel was.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Resident Evil 3 Nemesis GOOD OR BAD?
    i liked it.Why you ask?because its got a Five star rating of graphics,better monsters and faster,better weapon categorys,better background and longer than res2.you can play as Regina from Dino Crisis but you can get her easier with the gameshark.its got cool sounds and another thing aboput it the music switches when the tyrant is NEAR.He Has Alot of Tricks up his sleeve.hard to defeat.Try Operation Mad Jackal For More Weapons you have to unlock it first though. i dont know what weapons you get i never got that far.it's mainly the #1 Rating gAME FOR PLAYSTATION IN 1999-2000! its just #1 THATS why it rocks.alright now if anyone says its bad...they've never played it.but its got a few bad angles of when you V.S. the tyrant and its hard to shoot with right aiming.ill level with you though.on some bosses use the Spark Shock Gun or whatever it is itll give em a shock.my advice go ahead and get it.go on go on go get it for christmas or something.

    5-0 out of 5 stars not the best place to start, but RE gold for veterans
    Resident evil is one of the longest run PlayStation titles out there. It is really a shame that Gamecube is the exclusive RE platform now, because Playstation always did it best. Since th very birth of PS, there has been resident evil, and RE 3 does not dissapoint. RE 3 puts a great new spin on the series, through the arch super villan nemesis. Nemesis (as you can see from the box art) is a menacing tyrant, much like the tyrants in RE 2 out for the lead character Jill's blood. The great part about this game is the difficulty setting. While they really make no difference, it can give the new gamers to this title a bit more edge, since this is one of the harder RE titles.

    The thing that makes this game so adicttive to survival horror junkies like myself is the claustrophobic action, Throughout the game you have the idea in the back of your head that nemesis could be, and usually is, behind every corner. For some this good, for some this is bad. Some people enjoy walking through the city for hours and not having to worry about running themselves out of herbs and ammo every ten minutes. However, for most others it adds a great suspensful feeling to the game, and makes you feel more and more like your action do matter a great deal.

    As for the controls, no one will like them at first. It is sort of an acquired taste that most survival horror games have when ti comes to controls. Since all the camera angles are stationary (it makes the game look better so don't complain) this game utilizes the up arrow as always being forward. Some people seem to understand it better if you explain as being an RC car, whether face south, north, east or west, up wil always drive you forward. There realyl is no way around this configuration, it really is best to dive right in and get used to it, even if it means being massacred five minutes in a bunch of times.

    In conclusion, I would not pick this RE in particular for anyone new to the series. With the inclusion of nemesis, you are required to make split second decisions, and it will often confuse,a nd ultimately lead to the death of more novice players. If you are new to the series, try RE 2, RE 1 has a few problems present for newer players, but RE 2 is the perfect balance of horror, and simplicity. If your a veteran to RE, look no further for fun, just don't expect it to be a cake walk!

    5-0 out of 5 stars PLEASE MAKE A REMAKE OUT OF THIS!!
    I have this game on gc and psx and there no different but I wanted to shout out THAT THEY SHOULD REMAKE RE3!!!! NEMISIS
    SHOULD BE REMADE!!!! HE'LL LOOK MORE REAL!!!!
    PLEASE MAKE A REMAKE OUT OF THIS CAPCOM!!!!!!!!

    RESIDENT EVIL 3 RULES!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Resident evil at its worst
    Resident evil 2, may i say, is one of the best games of all time. So was re1, re0, and re code veronica. But not resident evil 3. First of all, whats with the difficulty mode?!! U either put it on easy and it starts u with enough ammo to finish the rest of the game with, or u put it on hard and it makes it so u barely have enough. But the worst part is the tyrant. It chases u so u barely have a chance to explore. It literally follows u through doors and into new areas constantly! He's hard to kill and always comes back. Plus he can kill u in one or two hits and is fast. It takes away from the fun of the game. Forget this game and try resident evil 2 or one of the others..... you will thank me later. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars MegaMan Legends 2: The Legend Continues!
    I bought this game the day it came out. I waited years for it! If you've played MegaMan Legends(1), you'd understand why. The game itself has a many new things, as well as a many things from the first game. The game control is still the same, and the look is also basically the same, so are most of the weapons. But your lock-on is a bit easier, and the plot definatly takes a bigger leap. The levels are also more challenging, with better weapon management. Of course, you can't forget the new people, both townspeople and villians! You'll find out all about the Reaverbots, Mother Lode, as well as the secret behind MegaMan's shrouded past... The comical Bonnes return (humorous as ever), as well as Glyde, and they also gave Bon his original Pikachu voice back (if you've played Misadventures Of Tron Bonne, you'll be thankful for this)!

    Total Game Time normally takes about 16 to 18 hours to complete (that is, if you're doing your best and trying to obtain most items).

    Weapon attachments include Homing Missile, Spread Buster, Drill Arm, and many more.

    The game now features underwater adventures! Strap on the new Hydro Jets, and make diving fun and easy!

    Not just one island! Now you can travel to Calinca (it SHOULD be spelled Kalinka), Nino, and Manda islands, as well as many more!

    In all, I found the game a real treat. While maybe not too on the fast-paced action/exciting side, it certainly is a must to those of you who wish to see how the mystery unfolds... I have few complaints, aside wishing the Bonnes played a bigger role, and seeing the original voice actors for MegaMan (as well as some better, more acurate translations, which was my main quelm), but seriously, it is still understandable if you missed out on MegaMan Legends 1, but I would advise trying the first one first. That way, you won't be completely lost, and it will make the sequel so much more enjoyable! Be safe!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Blue Bomber is back with a few surprises
    I'm a huge fan of Capcom's Megaman francises and I played almost every Megaman game ever made. Megaman Legends 2 is an excellent sequel to the most anticipated Megaman Legends. This game has an extended storyline, beatiful 3D graphics, and slick control. This is one of the best Megaman titles out there, but still....why PlayStation ? This game is not bad, but somehow it didn't make it to the other console systems like Sega Dreamcast, PC CD-ROM, or the Nintendo 64. Some gaming websites that I stumbled accros from, said that among Nintendo Gamecube's lineup, there will be a Megaman title ! Could it be Megaman Legends 2, Megaman X5, or is it another Megaman title that's gonna be created only for Gamecube ? Ah well ! Only time will tell whem Megaman Legends 2 will be ported over to another system. Just imagine....Megaman Legends 2 on the Dreamcast ! Oops ! I forgot to mention something ! Unlike some of the Megaman games, this game has a handful of fast-paced mini games and unlimited 3D enviroments. Although this is pure perfection over the first Megaman Legends, this game still suffers polygonal glitches because of the PlayStation's outdated 32-bit processor. If you're in the store and you're looking for the pefect Megaman game to add to your PlayStation library, Megaman Legends 2 is for you !

    Reminder to all Megaman fans:

    PC OWNERS WILL LOOK FORWARD TO MEGAMAN LEGENDS FOR PC !

    GAMEBOY OWNERS WILL LOOK FORWARD TO MEGAMAN XTREME FOR GAMEBOY COLOR !

    PLAYSTATION OWNERS WILL LOOK FORWARD TO MEGAMAN X5 FOR THE PLAYSTATION !

    NINTENDO 64 OWNERS WILL LOOK FORWARD TO MEGAMAN 64 FOR THE NINTENDO 64 !

    FUTURE GAMEBOY ADVANCED OWNERS WILL BE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEGAMAN'S FIRST RPG, MEGAMAN EXE !

    That's all !

    5-0 out of 5 stars one of the few sequels better than the original
    first there was megaman. and it was good. then there was megaman X. it was really good. then there was megaman legends. it was so unfathomably awesome that if you've never heard of it, you have probably been living in or under a large rock.

    Then, as if to say "oh, you think THAT'S somethin'..." Capcom released megaman legends 2 and minds burned 'round the world. Megaman legends embodies all that is the megaman series, in all it's 3-D glory

    MML2 is one of the few games to deliver a good story, good graphics (for it's time, at least) and great control. megaman moves seemlessly, strafes, fires, and jumps. and it all seems natural. you use the control stick/pad to move, and the shoulder buttons to turn. it's a tad tedious at first, but it really works. you'll forget you ever said "that's the craziest control scheme ever!"

    now I know you're thinking "but Ginzo, i'm a hardcore megaman fan at heart, and seeing the blue bomber in 3-D makes me wanna puke my guts out." Well, even for you, mister hardcore megaman-er, this is a great game. I reccomend this to anyone who likes non-stop 3-D run-and-gun megaman action.

    All my five are belong to this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Throw away your doubts, its great.
    Correct me if im worng but MML1 recieved controversial hysteria from those few who knew about it, it was dissed and trashed for not following the 2d blue bombers previous exploits, but when i playerd it, i loved it even though i had played MM's previous Gameboy,Playstation and NES games, and i was not dissapointed by MML1 (megaman legends 1) at all, it was pretty large and the fact that you could make weapons from scrap parts found in ruins was icing on the glorious 3d cake. and so when megaman legends 2 hit shelves i ahd to check it out, i will say this now, Play megaman legends 1 first if you can since A. its incredibly great and B. you cant really understand this whole thing if you havent played and beaten 1, though its not required. but in MML2 the blue bomber is back in all his plated glory, this time the gorup continues their search for the motherlode on a strange icy tundra island, once there you fight hordes of Reaverbots and eventually meet a mysterious young lady, this all takes place after the wicked opening cut-scene which is sure to please all. i wont go too deep into the story since its pretty hard to understand even if you ahve played the game. but Megamans little friend Data (a dancing monkey creature) is back to give you advice,Save your game and refill your health and special weapona ammo,all of which you'll need for the vicous boss fights, but more on that later. then theres Roll who is megamans best friends (and love ineterest?). she is a mechanical genius and flies the flutter and makes special wepaons out of worthless junk you find in ruins (more on these later too). she is on a quest to retrieve the motherload and find her long lost (apparebntly dead) parents. and megeaman is the brave and willing digger (people who search ruins for treasure) who's role goes much deeper than nyone would've expected. then theres the countless pirates who you basically need to play 1 to understand at all (they're back, the bonnes i mean) they are also joined by a new pirate friend, Glyde and his caste of Birdbots and then theres Klaymoore and Bola somne f the coolest badguys ever, Klaymoors big and mechanical with lots of guns while Bola is sleek and fast with a cool sword and pincer arm. they sonstantly try to thwart megaman on his digger quests. now on to the ruins and world etc. this world is double the size of MML1 which is a godsend for those who didnt want the first one to end (me being one of them), there are many islands to explore now each full of a city, mini quests and games and lots of ruins where you scrounge up junk for Roll to make into special weapons which can devestate just about anything later on, this adds a huge bit of exploration to the game. bosses are huge and hard, alot of them are huge reaverbots and pirates in this game with multiple strategies and attack patterns making them difficult but not overly so, these bosses are numbering far above the teens in number so dont expect to see a shortage of these fun and sometimes hilarious bosses who stay on a good path of hard but not frustratingly tedious. and the graphics are very niucely done for a playstation game, they are very anime-ish with the occasioanl Jaggy and megaman looks cool, so does Roll and the rest of the cast (my favorite characetr is Bomb Bonne though, HEH =P), the towns and cities are nicely rendered but the ruins sometimes look very similiar and hallways are almost always alike. these ruins are also too few in number and the ones you HAVE to explore (involved in the main quest) are sometimes too large and long to cope with particularly Ninos ruin which is very tedious and takes like 30 minutes to beat, all in all however this game is great for anyone who is a fan of the blue bomber and great for first timers alike, in one word, think of Zelda, thats the best way to describe this game, Zelda for the PSX.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Game
    I bought this game for my 6 year old son. He really enjoys playing it. He says Mega Man 8 is much better, however, he plays this quite often. He enjoys the challenges of getting to another level. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A vibrant,thrilling, and excellent fighting game!!!
    This is a very unique fighter, for it goes back to the old ways of Super Street Fighter 2. By this, I mean no air blocking, and character sprites similar to the 1993 CPS2 based arcade blow away. Morrigan is the sole character to make her way from the darkstalkers demon world, and I hope in the future it stays that way. Mai, Terry, Kyo, Iori, and many popular SNK fighters make there debut on stunning Capcom custom made sprites, featuring a wide variety of super moves and attacks. In the game, you can choose 1-4 characters,determining strength. Mai and Morrigan, my team of characters, are in the 2 range. Evil Akuma and Geese Howard are in the one range, Vega and Yamakazi in the 2 (except their partners have to be in the 4 range) and Cammy, Sakura, Blanka etc. in the 4 range. You can also select a 2 range character with 2, 4 range characters. Also, you must select a groove, either Capcom or SNK(Snk has much better artwork) and this matter with the super moves.

    4-0 out of 5 stars What kept ya?
    At long last. One of the most anticipated fighting games of all time has finally arrived on our shores for the Dreamcast! The world's two biggest companies on the fighting circuit pit their baddest brawlers against each other in a no-holds-barred slugfest to see just who's the best. A lot of people have been waiting for this one to come out ever since Capcom and SNK announced late last year that they would be developing a game together, and now it's here in all its 2D glory. So, was it worth the wait? Does it live up to all the hype? Well...mostly. Overall, this is one of the most solid fighting games out there. The control is pure Capcom gold; tight and responsive (a little awkward for SNK veterans, but after a couple of games, it fits just fine). Four attack buttons instead of six means it even feels good on the standard DC controller. The gameplay is a little (okay, a lot) different than your average fighting game. You build a team of fighters using a points system. See, each fighter in the game has a rating of 1, 2, or 3, and you get 4 points to play with, meaning you can have anywhere from two to four fighters on your team! (The strongest characters have a rating of 3, the weakest a 1.) Not only that, you have two different fighting styles (Grooves) to choose from; an "SNK" style (which plays mostly like the King of Fighters series) or a "Capcom" style (which plays more like the Street Fighter Alpha series). Needless to say, strategy is this game's most important aspect, which is rare in a fighting game. The music is pretty much what you'd expect (some techno with guitar mixed in); nothing really memorable, but decent enough. There's a whole bunch of secret stuff to find in here too; mostly "EX" (alternate) versions of the original fighters, extra costume colors, and hidden stages, but enough to keep you playing for a good while to unlock them all. And lastly, the graphics. Since this game was developed by Capcom, all of the SNK characters were redesigned. They have a very "Capcom"-ish look to them; some King of Fighters fans may frown upon this, but the new looks fit the game pretty well. The biggest disappointment, though, is the fact that with the exception of Ryu, Ken, and M. Bison, all of the Capcom characters look exactly like they did in the Street Fighter Alpha series. When they stand across from the SNK characters, they look like they were just pasted in. Capcom really cheaped out on that count, especially when you consider how long it took for this game to come out. This flaw doesn't detract from the gameplay at all, though, which is the important thing. Backgrounds are top notch, and they all have a nice little "intro" sequence as well, which is an SNK trademark. Some of the stages will even interact with the ongoing fight, with toppling beams, shadows, and rustling leaves! When you put it all together, you've definitely got one of the standout fighting games of the year; overall great graphics, tight gameplay, a unique battle system, and even a decent replay value. Fight fans rejoice; the wait is over!

    Get Fatal Fury or Project Justice instead
    You can not do any 10 hit airial combos because the screen does not pan up when you hit your opponent into the air.

    The graphics are very bad. It look like a SNES game. Don't wate your money on this, you will be disoppointed as I was. I expected much better from a game with SNK and street-fighter characters.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Capcom's VS. Series continues to DOMINATE!
    After four vs. games with Marvel, Capcom continues on with this legacy with SNK. This game is cool since you get to play with fighters from the KOF (King of Fighters) Series and the Street Fighter Series. There are also included two hidden bonus characters, one from Samurai Showdown and the other from Night Warriors. The stage entraces are another unique feature that makes this game really cool. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes to play fighting platform games or likes Capcom or SNK games.

    4-0 out of 5 stars #2 Fighting game for the DreamCast
    I love Capcom and I love SNK, they both make or made great games (SNK which stands for Shin Nihon Kikau went out of business in October of 2001, which in its great run brought us great games such as The King of Fighters) So when I heard they were gonna make a fighting game together I was dancing around a little school girl. I already own Marvel vs Capcom and Marvel vs Capcom 2 and I wanted to see if anything could possibly top them, I was almost sure of it since both companys make the best fighting games ever. Once I bought it I played it for hours on end, unlocking characters, finding new moves. The best part of the game is the graphics, which look like PS2 standards and the Levels are the best I have ever seen in a fighting game. The music and sound is phenomenal. The only thing that kept me from giving it five stars was the [bad] play control, the hyper moves are near immpossible to do and even your simple basic moves were hard to pull off. Still that didn't stop me from playing it over and over again.

    If you like fighting games and you have a dreamcast, buy this! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A charming, fun adventure
    Sometimes, it's good to play a more lighthearted game like this instead of a dark, mysterious game like one of the Final Fantasy series. And no, I don't hate the FF games... in fact, they're my favorite series around.
    Okage: Shadow King is great for any RPG gamer around, and still great even for those who aren't really into the genre. I'll start by mentioning the big problem, which is the not-so-great translation job. The dialogue can be horribly mangled at times and sometimes boring. With that said, I'll move on to the great aspects of the game.
    1.) The characters: Each character shines in his/her own way, making for a great experience.
    2.) Unique and humorous storyline: The whole plot will definitely keep you interested and laughing at times.
    3.) The amount of possibilities in the game: This is one of those RPGs where decisions you make throughout the game affect Ari's character and love life.
    4.) The addictive battle system: Battles can be fun for hardcore RPG gamers or newbies... the right amount of difficulty to keep both busy.
    This is definitely a worthwile purchase for anyone who appreciates a more light-hearted adventure and doesn't mind loading times [which really aren't THAT bad, people]. If you want a game where you can just kick back with a cold drink of some sort and a bag of chips, pick up a copy of this great RPG.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Hilarious Though Questionablly Fun
    Okage: The Shadow King (Called "Me and the Demon King" in Japan) is a decidedly mixed bag of a video game experience that essentially delivers an especially memorable character in the Evil Shadow King Stan, who delivers some of the most definitely humorously droll dialogue seen in a video game for awhile, but inevitably falters in delivering an exceedingly entertaining Nightmare Before Christmas-segue video game experience. By neglecting to improve the game's battle engine, abundantly retaining its childishly obnoxious visuals, focusing to heavily on it's grievously clich├ęd uninteresting RPG (Role-Playing-Game) stereotyped characters, focusing on a moronically simple game-play, heinously allowing exasperatingly redundant enemy encounters, and ultimately shying away from it's central appeal of comedy a third way into the experience restricts this exceptionally quirky title from living up to it's possible potential.

    Only recommended for those who wouldn't mind surviving through an extremely maddening video game encounter just to see one of the most highly amusing video characters in certainly some time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Evil King Stan!
    I've finished this, and, beleive me, THIS IS THE BEST GAME EVER!! If anyone ever tells you that it sucks or something, THEY SUCK!! I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS GAME!! After I finished it, I sold it back, and now I'm regretting it.... Anyway, sure, the whole dungeon thing sucks, but the story rocks! I hope they come out with number two. Ya, I know, it's just a dream.... (Sigh.) But it's possible!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quite out of the ordinary
    I went to EB Games and looking at some new games I wished to buy and when I went up to the counter to purchase this game the employee said he thought it was a game. Buying it for only $8.99 I took the chance! This game has an excellent plot... Their is a family (Grandmother, Grandfather, Father, Mother. Annie, and her older brother. Well Annie is put under a curse by a ghost (she can only speak pig latin) And then King Stan and servant James maggically appear at the house offering tio lift the curse in exchange for "evil servants"! And she is lifted of the curse and Evil Stan takes over the older brother's shadow. you play as the older brother... and the fun continues! In addition to the great plot the gameplay and graphics are awesome.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Story but Somewhat lacking in Game play
    Now that title might mislead you. I loved Okage. The battle system sucked. I'm sorry but it just did. The combat was on the strategic level of 'Rock Paper Scissors'. And every dungeon had urns. Lots of urns. Yes, urns. As in pottery.
    But, somehow the horrible game play was foregivable because of the story. It's strange, definitely not ordinary, and completely hilarious. I finnished Okage about a year ago and it still has a place in my heart. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!
    This is the ultimate game! THE coolest ever. Your mission is to raise and train your own Digimon to save the Digital World by returning Digimon who have "lost their hearts" to File City. There are days, years, many new Digimon (at least from the ones I know) and awesome battles! About a MILLION times better than Pokemon. And you won't get tired of it either. Only one flaw... There is no Mega Level Digimon. (Besides HerculesKabuterimon, but he's listed as an ultimate and even the Game's Guide doesn't tell you how to get H-Kabuterimon.) If you're hoping it's like the T.V. series...Don't hope... It's noting like it. But Its still awesome. If you like Digimon and own Play Station, BUY THIS GAME RIGHT NOW! Plus, I implore (strongly encourage) you to also buy the Game guide. I will help you a LOT! I read some reviews and saw that this would be a pretty cool game, but when I first played it, it blew me away! WOW!

    5-0 out of 5 stars DIGI-HISTORY IS MADE
    Digimon world is this really cool game where you can raise you Digimon, train it, and recruit other digimon. This game teaches a lot of responsibility and this is not really violent since the guys you fight just faint so parents, don't be afraid. You start out with a Digimon, Agumon or Gabumon(depending on how you answer the questions Jijimon asks you). In about 4 to 5 days, your digimon digivolves into a champion form. If you can double it's stats within 6 or 7 digi days,(you get about 9 or 10 days when you start out) you'll be granted an ultimate digimon. This is a very hard tast to acheive. This game has cool graphic, sounds, almost everything so get it. One part about it is frustrating though: your digimon "get deleted" after 15 to 20 digi-days. This hurts you alot if you're about to fight a boss or something. Your digimon's life depends on how well you treat it. So that's basically the scenario.

    This game should be in everyone's homes.

    a bad game
    To tell you the truth I think this game was really bad. I mean you could not even get agumon to digivolve to greymon.They should have it where it is like the show, where the digimon didivolve into what they are suppost to.Why would a agumon digivolve to a numemon, that is so stupid.The game is so confusing you dont even know what to do. one more thing thats really stupid is if have your digimon crap anywere but the toilet, it will effect the way it digivoles, so you might get a numemon. I tried so many times to get agumon to digivolve to greymon, but it hopeless. I did everything the walkthroughs told me to do, keep it on a rutien every day, feed it right, and even had it at 30 pounds. It was still hopless. The goul of the game is to bring curupted digimon back to the city. My suggestion to you is to think twice before you by this game.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best game on PS1
    I have to say this is the best game on the PS. I am SICK off thouse reviews saying " its to slow", " My digimon keeps on dieing in 3 battles." Well this is't one of thouse games with just some quick action... You have to build your charactor up in this game. You can't just start the game and expect instant action... You gotta train at green gym and then go out and kill stuff. The graphics are gorgus for the PS1. The sound I accualy liked, the music from bettle island in the day was nice :). Anyways once you get a champeon then the game is great,

    The story is awsome. And I think think the game never ends :). This is much better than digimon world 2 & 3. Because you accualy RAISE a dude, not just start with dudes and kill. The only things I did't like was the potty trips ( They where tooooo often) and the time between attacks in the battle. I hate when i have a big old powerful attack and the enemy does a stupid little attack that stops mine... I think they should of took out the MP in this game ( How does a waterfall increase your magic points???) The MPs limited the coolness in the long battles.

    Overall if you like a game that you can play for a long time.. and has a semi slow start and a nice pace after that BUY THIS

    BUY THIS GAME. IT IS GREAT!@!!!!!

    surprising....
    usually i hate digimon games, but the digimon world 1,2 and 3 are excillent.Its still fun to play every once and a while. Out of all the digimon world games i feel this is the best of them all :D ... Read more

    does not shoot balls out very well
    We were very diappointed with our super spiral sprinkler. the picture on the box shows the balls being shot up in the air several feet and suspended by the water. Ours barely shots the balls out of the tube.

    Not bad
    I bought this a spur of the moment type of thing for my 7 year old son. Most neighbors have pools and I don't feel comfortable letting him go alone so I decided a sprinkler would keep him in the yard more often than not.

    I chose this because it looked like the kids would have tons of fun! And they do! He gets kids over and they have a blast putting the balls in and watching them shoot up. They try to hit the balls as they come up.

    I have had no trouble putting it into the ground. Some spots are harder than others and the harder the ground the harder it is to put it in as deep as it needs to be to keep it upright. I haven't really found it troublesome to keep it upright but it is annoying. But I have found the perfect spot in my yard to put it so it doesn't give me any trouble.

    One of the sprayers doesn't spray. Not sure if it is supposed to be like that since it is right where you hook the hose up to it. It has the holes to spray out but it doesn't. All the others spray out very far and the kids love it.

    I have used it quite a few times and haven't noticed any stress marks on the stake.

    I say go for it! Let your kids enjoy it. Not like it is that expensive.

    Better than what many others said
    I got this toy last year for my then 5 yr old and almost 3 yr old triplets. It worked just fine, as long as the spray was turned up high enough, and you have it somewhat straight in the ground. I've had no troubles getting it to stand upright, even after the ground has been soaked to the point of puddles forming. The spike hasn't shown any signs of bending -- and we have to stick it back in the ground all the time when the kids knock it over on purpose (to drench each other).

    My only wish is that it came with more than 4 balls (as I have four kids). It would save me from hunting them all down when one goes whoosing up and into nearby bushes.

    The only negative about the toy is that it was very hard for 2 year olds to figure out that they had to let the balls roll down the spiral part before they would shoot back up the middle (they kept jamming the down the middle). But I didn't expect much more from 2 year olds. The 5 year old had no probs with it at all. It will really water your lawn though.

    Super Spiral Sprinkler
    The balls do not pop up as easily as the say.

    broke second time used
    As stated in other reviews. Difficult to put in ground straight and it broke the second time we tried to put it in the ground. The stake broke right off. Look for a better contructed sprinkler. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC!
    I remember when I first got my Super NES in 1991, Final Fight was the first game I played. It was the game I played the most, I couldn't stop playing it! Before then, I had never played the arcade version, so I didn't know there was a character missing, a stage missing, and these two girl enemies were replaced with these weird male characters. When I finally DID the play the arcade version, I saw Guy and went "Who is THAT? He wasn't in the SNES!" So I picked Guy, and I thought he was awesome. He could do wall jumps, and he was really fast. After that, I had second thoughts about the Super NES version. When I heard that FF was being re-released for GBA, and it was gonna have all three characters, a two player mode, AND the missing stage, I had jumped at the chance and bought it. This game is a timeless classic. Guy can kick anyone's [butt], 'cause he's a ninja, and he can do wall jumps. Cody is my second favorite. Haggar is really too slow! Guy is the best character in my opinion, and I've beaten the game at least 5 times with him. I highly recommend this classic to everybody.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The arcade classic finds a new home
    Final Fight was a huge hit many years back. The original featured Haggar and Cody, busting up guys on the streets of Metro City. This version for Game Boy Advance, features another controlable character; Guy, all the levels of the original, (plus the forgotten level), and a feature that keeps tabs on the number of guys you kill. As the total gets higher and higher, you can accumulate cheat options. The game itself features excellent graphics, great play control, a standard beat-em-up game design, good music and sound, and more thugs than you can shake a fist at. The action is fast paced and constant. You'll enjoy this if you're a fan of the arcade version, or just someone with anger management problems looking to relieve some stress.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of Capcom's greatest fighters now on the gba
    I played this game about 11 years ago on SNES but it didn't have Guy as a character choice (you had to purchase either final fight Guy for the SNES or Final Fight CD for the Sega CD) The game remains faithful or close to the arcade version names of the bad guys are the names used in the arcade and not the SNES version. The car smashing bonus gane is included and there was another but it escapes me at the minute. I have the game boy player for the cube and it looks good on a 29" screen. I think if you have not played final fight one you should the price is under $20 and it is fun I also think the graphics even edge out the old snes version. A recommended buy

    5-0 out of 5 stars STILL AWESOME!
    Final Fight One was a popular arcade game back in the days. I played it a lot back in jounior high school. Even now, this game is still lots of fun! This GBA port is perfect!
    The graphics are SUPER, just like the arcade, very colorful and detailed. The characters/enemies are big and very detailed. The sound and music is great. The sound/music test is sweet, you can trip people out in class or during work! I love the oh my god, sneezing, and pistol sound. The control is simple, one button for jump, one for attack and one for special attack. You can throw the enemies, hold then do the knee/headbutt, all the original moves are there! The gameplay is super fun!
    This game is similar to another awesome game, Streets Of Rage 2, which should be made for the GBA! Overall this game is totally sweet, a MUST BUY!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ms. Pac-Man Hits a Home Run
    At first, I was very bored by this game and I couldn't figure out why I couldn't clear all the dots or fruit. After playing for a while, I have become addicted to this game. It is so much fun and it has so many different levels and possibilities, it's hard to stop playing it now. My advice would be to grab this one. You won't be sorry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Kewlest
    This game is one of the best PS1 games Ive played. The graphics are great. I played this at my friends house and it was awesome. Ms. Pacman is the coolest. This is a puzzle game, but it's so fun you could never tell. The levels are really creative, Plus there's games for more then 1 player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars DA BOMB RACING GAME
    This game is a great game if u wanna chalenging, hard to beat racing game. This game has awesome graphics and its not so easy to beat it took me about 30 MINUTES to beat one of the races. Although, sometimes you may get frustrated when you race, and sometimes you're in 1st and then someone comes and knocks you out-or spins you out-you end up in 5th.

    Good Things-
    Awesome Cars (Stock cars in speed and power, Modified cars in speed and power, Pro cars in speed and power, and Unlimitied cars in speed and power)
    NOT easy to beat
    good graphics
    ALOT of races
    A GOOD GAME
    Good music, and sound
    once beaten still really fun to play
    really good with multiplayer
    free roam is fun

    Bad things-
    Frustrating at some points
    when selecting things have to push the button awfully hard
    easy to win once in front of everyone kind of alot

    so overall, A PRETTY GOOD GAME RIGHT(...)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun if you like arcade style racing.
    I'm a big fan of arcade style racing, and Test Drive:Off Road took it to the next level. (If you prefer more "realistic" racing where you buy parts & make money see my review on 4x4 Evo2 instead.)

    Test Drive delivers the one thing I have wanted from a racing game for years, the ability to choose your own way through a course, AND still win. In '98 Microsoft came out with Motocross Madness, where you rode dirtbikes and did tricks for points, but when you were in racing mode, if you left the track, you didn't stand a chance of winning.

    Test Drive is different. There are tracks that you can use, and finish, and win on. But you can choose to go off road and win also. You choose your vehicle based on what you want to do. There are power vehicles and speed vehicles. The speed vehicles do well on the relatively flat dirt tracks that lead to the finish, while the power vehicles that have lower top speeds do better leaving the beaten (longer) path and taking the shortcut over the top of the mountain.

    That said, there is still a downside: There are a relatively limited number of races, so if you are like me and tend to finish games quickly then this one won't take you long. It can also be frustrating, because when you play in the hardest mode, the other vehicles will attempt to bump you and make you spin out. That is really annoying when you managed to stay in first place through an entire race, and then get spun out 10 seconds before you hit the finish line and you end up in 5th place.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great multiplayer fun.
    Let's start out by saying that I never bought this game for a realistic four wheeling adventure. Anyone who wants to claim that any of the 4x4 games out there are realistic has never broken an axle Jeeping down a mountainside. If you want authentic outdoor experiences, leave your living room. However if its a cold and rainy day and you have some friends over tryout the multiplayer "King of the hill" mode. This is the one reason I love this game so much. As for the graphics, well they arent great but getting pumped up by the music and knocking your friends around makes up for it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Best 4x4 off-road game
    My kids love the game.Myself,I would not be so generous.Good Graphics and some fun but lacks originality.Would be more realistic with cab view and a more lively environment.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Unrealistic, but fun
    If you are looking for a good off-road driving simulation, this is not the game for you. The graphics are average at best and the driving model is very arcade-like. There is no vehicle damage, and jumps are insane.

    HOWEVER, the forgiving driving model is great for younger kids who can't control more serious driving games. My 5 year old and I have a great time racing each other with this game.

    It also has a career mode where you can earn vehicle upgrades by winning races. The "tracks" that are available are a bit limited, but they are a lot of fun, especially the jumps. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Command & Conquer 64
    This is a Fantastic game! It's a live strategy/action game, which means unlike other strategy games that are slow and methodical and allow you a lot of time to plan your strategy and then you sit and watch a bunch of repetitive screen animations that you have no control over. Command & Conquer requires you to apply strategy continuously as the action happens in front of you. Command & Conquer also allows you to play either side, the good guys or the bad guys. There are 15 missions for the GDI side and 13 for the NOD side. Each mission has a specific goal that must be done to complete it, but any one mission can be beaten several different ways. The controls for the game are pretty easy to learn. The graphics for the game are great. There are up to three variations for each mission making a total of 50 different scenarios. This is not a game that you're going to beat in one day. It is a very challenging game, but at the same time a lot of fun. I've heard a lot of bad reviews about the playstation version, that is not the case here. I can't say enough good things about Command & Conquer for the Nintendo64. I can't wait for a sequel.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad but HARD![.]
    Out of all the RTS Games available I'd have to say this one should only be one of them that you buy if you enjoy long stratigic battles. By far this would have to be one of the most challenging that i've played not because it is C&C but because it is on N64. Pretty much the game is as the computer version but I would have to say 5 times as harder. There is no easy or moderate only a preset level that is sometimes impossilbe. Since westwood does not believe in cheats the game also does not have any cheats. All in all the graphics were fair but the game play made up for that. It does hook just that if you wanted to replay a previously played game you could just that if you wanted to return to the campain you were at, you would end up at the game you had just beaten in that campain. Sounds confusing so I would recommened you rent the game before buying it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Everybody Wants to Rule the World
    I got this game and I thought it was going to be just an okay game. Did I ever find out how wrong I was! The game is absolutely addictive! You can play as the Global Defense Initiative (GDI)the good guys or the bad guys, who are simply called the NOD. There are 15 GDI missions and 13 NOD missions. There are also two exclusive N64 only missions for each side. The grapihics are okay, but not anything real fancy. If you want to run the game in High Resolution mode make sure you have an expansion pack; this also makes the graphics better. Just remember to go to the opions menu and select High Resolution everytime you play because if you don't the game will run on Medium Resolution. When you use and airstrick for the GDI or use a lot of flamthrowers, flamtankes, or a Nuclear Missile for the NOD, the game play will so slow down to a crawl until the fire stopsm but after the napalm is it out the game goes back to its normal speed. When a soldier dies he spills over and a little pile of blood comes out and then it disappears along with the body. If you run over enemy troops with tank or something, you get a squishy sound. When a soldier dies you may hear a scream. These are the only violent grapcis in the game. The music is great at times, but some of the tracks are boring. This is the best strategy game for the N64! A little hint to help is that the NOD are great at whiping out infantry while the GDI are better equipped to handle tanks and defensive positions. When you are capable to produce tanks and vehicles build vehicles instead of infratry because a NOD flame tank or a NOD flamethrower can wipe out a lot of infantry with no problem at all. If you play as the NOD then build turrets and light tanks to take out the GDI forces. You can use a group of light tanks to run over infantry. Also another hint is that if you play as NOD build some recon motorcycles in the later missions when GDI uses ORCAs, they are kind of like helicopters, to harrass you and if the recon units are in guard mode they will attack the flying pests. This is definitely a must have since new N64 games are no longer coming out. Some of the later missions can take up to three to four hours to complete. Have fun!

    5-0 out of 5 stars pretty damn good
    this game is very cool.it is all startigy.builde a huge army or simply set up a ambush buy the game its awesome

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great strategy game
    Command and Conquer is the greatest strategy game I've seen for N64. This game allows you to plan and strategize as the action happens, unlike other slow, methodical, and totally boring strategy games.

    Another cool part is you can choose which side to fight on: the good side (GDI) or the bad side (NOD). Every mission is complex, puzzling, and can be won many different ways.

    Overall, this is a great game and a great buy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excelent, great, everything!!!
    I like this game because you can play it against a friend. I tried playing against the computer, and I couldn't beet it. I beet it on N64, but I hadn't been able to beet it on Play Station. This is one of the best boxing games of all time. I highly recommend this to future gamers.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Are you ready for Ready to Rumble?
    Ready to Rumble is a very interesting boxing game. It has quite a few characters to select from and is unique in it's design of each of it's characters moves according to their particular height weight and reach. It's a very nice game. I give it a 3 out of 5 just because the game play is fairly simple and the challenge is not that great. All that a side it's very entertaining and it will give you hours of fun with your friends. Put in your mouth piece, strap on your head gear, and touch gloves. Are you Ready to Rumble??

    4-0 out of 5 stars AOK for FUN !!
    This game my kids love, ages 5 and 8. I knew before I bought it but have confirmed it now after they opened for christmas!!
    Good game for them fighting guys !!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun for all
    Boxing game presented in cartoon style with caicature boxers. Although you have to punch and knockout there is no blood or visible signs of violence. All boxers are larger than life, and the playability is good. In arcade mode you can play against computer or friend and there is a championship mode where you can place bets and take your boxer through the ranks training him or her in the gym along the way. Loads quickly also.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Worth 10 dollars!
    This games is worth it!awsome hillarious characters!you can start a career and go in the gym and do arobics,lift weights,hit punching bags,take stararoids and more to build your guy/girl up!

    3-0 out of 5 stars ROARing Fun!
    The color was really bright! The music was really jammin'. But the problem was the graphics were too 2D. I mean the hippos looked like flat cause they were. Very simple of a game, the first nine levels are so easy you could probably do it with your eyes closed. But other than that, I liked it! Music still is jammin!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun, cute and entertaining!
    I like this game a lot. I am 35 years old, mind you. This is my first time owning a Nintendo Game Boy Color. The game is fun to play the the graphics and color are nice. Simba is easy to move and the game isn't too hard to get from one stage to the next. I recomend this game to anyone. The only thing that gets on my nerves is every time Simba gets hit by a bad animal in the game he says, "ouch" and it gets very tiring if you get hit a lot. The little movie shots between the stages are cute. They go with the stage you were on. Enjoy!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Four Stars for Simba's Mighty Adventure
    Overall, I give this game 4 stars. The graphics are above average (though not great), and if you lose a life during one of the two overhead-view levels, they become scrambled for a moment. There are neat little stills from the movies before and after each level of the game, but to me it looks like someone stuck them in there without touching them up at all so that they'd look better on the Game Boy Color's display. The actual gameplay is pretty nice. Simba moves around at a reasonable speed (not too slow and not too fast), and the game's responsiveness to the controls is also pretty nice. I found the game overall to be pretty entertaining. I think younger kids might enjoy it the most, though. And, as a side note, it really bugs me that the adult Simba in the game is smaller than the young Simba. ... Read more
