Amazon.com Review

Normally, Nintendo contract players such as Mario, Pikachu, Link, DonkeyKong, Bowser, and Kirby are generally happy and well-mannered, but in SuperSmash Bros. Melee, the pleasantries get thrown out and the gloves (exceptfor Mario's) come off. This update of the N64 favorite features these and othervideo game icons in furious, yet utterly absurd fisticuffs that usually make fora smashing good time. Just make sure you have at least one human opponent topound on.

Starting off with 14 characters (an additional 11 are waiting to be unlocked),the game has a pretty standard premise--let Nintendo's stars beat on each otheruntil the timer runs out. However, a lot of emphasis is put on knockingopponents off ledges while avoiding the same fate. In typical Nintendo manner,there are quite a few power-ups to assist you in the melee. The actual combatisn't as intricate as in other fighting games; however, the ultra-cartoonylayout of the many, many arenas sometimes adds a strategic element not usuallyfound in similar titles.

Super Smash Bros. Melee's strength lays in the mayhem created infour-player fights. The camera does an excellent job of positioning itself so allcombatants are constantly visible. Also, Melee sports some of the bestvisuals seen in a Nintendo product. All the characters are highly detailed, andthe movements of each are smoothly infused with personality. Donkey Kong lumbersand Princess Peach fights with grace.

As the multiplayer mode is the key reason for this game's existence, thesingle-player mode is decidedly weak. The game features an adventure mode that playssomewhat like an old-school, side-scrolling Mario game. Sadly, despite its goodlooks, its gameplay is rather uninspired. This game is clearly at its best whenthere are two or more players with controllers in their hands. --MarkBrooks

Pros:

  • Fantastic graphics and sound keep the action upbeat
  • Many new characters and other goodies to unlock
Cons:
  • Single-player experience is comparatively weak
  • Too cute for a few folks
  • Adventure mode is boring

5-0 out of 5 stars Cooliest game on GameCube so far!
This game is one of the cooliest I have seen on Gamecube. This game is the sequel to Super Smash Brothers on Nintendo. For example, this game has 29 excellent characters and 25 cool levels. Please note that you have to unlock some of the characters and levels. The characters that are already unlocked are: Mario, Pikachu, Bowser, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Captain Falcon, Fox, Ness, Ice Climbers, Kirby, Samus, Zelda/Sheik, Link, and Jigglypuff. The hidden characters are: Mewtwo, Luigi, Marth, Mr. Game and Watch, Dr. Mario, Ganondorf, Young Link, Falco, Pichu, and Roy. The levels that are already loaded on the game are: Princess Peach's castle, Rainbow Cruise, Kongo Jungle, Jungle Japes, Great Bay, Te,ple, Yoshi's Story, Yoshi's Island, Fountain of Dreams, Green Greens, Corneria, Venom, Icicle Mountain, Brainstar, Onett, Mute City, Pokemon Stadium, and Kingdom. The Hidden stages are: Brainstar Depths, Fourside, Big Blue, Poke Floats, Kingdom 2, Flat Zone, Battlefield, Final Destination, Dream Land, Yoshi's Island, and Kongo Jungle.

In this cool cartoon battle game of Nintendo's hottest characters there is so many different options. For example, on one player theres: adventure mode, classic mode, 51 events, training practice, target tests, homerun contests, and multi-man melee. In vs. mode you can: play melee, tournament melee, and special melee.

You can even make up your own rules! Every character has different attacks and moves. If you want, try to collect the hundreds of trophies.

Once again I give this game 5 perfect stars. This is one of the most funiest games ever! I recommend that you should buy this game if you love fighting combat.

4-0 out of 5 stars The best party/fighter ever,period.
To start off this is under the genre of a fighter, but it is so much more than that. Great multiplayer mode, soooo much to unlock, 25 characters, 29 stages, 50 event maches, which are actually very fun, 290 trophies to earn find collect and buy,
3 1 player modes, 6 if training, stadium and event match are counted, 3 stadium modes,
Target Test - Smash Ten Targets!
Home-Run Contest - Smash Sand Bag As Far As You Can!
Multi-Man Melee - Fight For You Life! Fight!
3 Regular 1 Player Matches Are,
Classic - Defeat Each Foe To Advance!
Adventure - Clear A stage from a classic franchise (like side-scrolling mushroom kingdom) than fight boss to advance
All-Star - Defeat All Characters With 1 Life (On Normal this can get tough, on hard or very hard it's, hard or very-hard! and on either of the easy settings it's just boring)
The Characters Are:
Dr. Mario
Mario
Luigi
Princess Peach
Bowser
Yoshi
Donkey Kong
Captain Falcon
Ganondorf
Falco Lambardi
Fox McCloud
Ness
Ice Climbers
Kirby
Samus
Princess Zelda
Link
Young Link
Pichu
Pikachu
Jigglypuff
Mewtwo
Mr. Game & Watch
Marth
and
Roy
Plus over a dozen multiplayer modes.

The Game Also Sounds Great. The in game graphics are very good, but not the best. But, if you pause it and zoom in on a character, it just looks fantastic. And when you first put this dist in, don't touch the controller, the opening sequence is nothing less than beutiful.

Just buy this game it's worth the $30s. I looked at my timer when I wrote this review, i've played for 88 hours, and i'm still having fun, of course after unlocking all characters and levels, which will take between 30 and 40 hours, you will need to play with friends to stay interested.

This game is so awsome. Its worth to get a Gamecube alone.My Best and faveorite character is YOUNG LINK!!!!!!!!! GET THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Still the best fighting game
Super Smash Bros., originally for Nintendo 64 was a great game ... but compared to this, it is and has nothing. This newer, updated version has everything, including more characters, more stages, more weapons ... that means, more fun. The best characters are Link, Roy and Donkey Kong. The best multiplayer game! You can fight each other or fight on the same team, beat the heck out of the worthless computers or have a real challenge by trying to beat Adventure Mode without dying or retaining health by the three hearts ON VERY HARD mode. This game is semi easy to beat but if you really want to BEAT it...you have to beat it on VERY HARD, every mode.
An excellent buy and a timeless game. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Interactive, non violent and teaches a few life lessons!!
I gave this game to my 8 year old on her birthday and she wants to play it all the time!! If you want your child to start learning things like telling time, earning and spending money wisely (mortgage,clothes,furniture) reading and writing skills (talking to townsfolk, writing and recieving letters), charity (giving things to the local museum or other townsfolk)and "making and keeping" friendships (doing favors/errands and chatting). They can even catch butterflies and bugs, go fishing, dig for buried treasures and fossils, and plant trees and flowers. My 3 year old can walk around the towns and not get frustrated because she's stuck as in so many other games. Her favorite part of the game is taking the train from one town to the other(In order to travel to other towns, you need to purchase a separate memory card for slot b of the gamecube) My daughters and their friends speak of the characters by name. Parents beware: one thing I don't like is some of the words they chose to have the animals use..ie: idiot...or some of the townsfolk say rude comments....I use this as a learning lesson. All in all, this game is a blast for all ages! Best video game yet as far as I'm concerned! A++++++++++

5-0 out of 5 stars Welcome To The World Of Animal Crossing
This game is like no other,no,it's not an adventure,or a puzzle,it's life!Expeirience a new life where you name your own town and make your own rules.You buy a house,catch bugs,go fishing,anything.You start out in a small house and pay it off,just like in the real world,each time you pay it off you talk to Tom Nook(the shop keeper)and he'll upgrade your house!You can make a basement,an upstairs,or just make your main level bigger.Once you've paid off your house and it's been upgraded to the highest it can you get a gold statue of yourself infront of the train station!
If you connect your GBA with the Nintendo GameCube link cable,you can travle to animal island where you meet a friendly animal.You can also use the AC e-reader cards to get helpful codes.
AC runs on a real 24 hr. clock,so you can celebrate holidays and special events theat go on in your town.
The animals that live in your village have different personalities.You can help them with errands to get a little reward or talk to them and write them letters.
You can find many classic Nintendo games,such as Donkey Kong,CluClu Land and Excitebike.
In AC there's all that and much more.I hope my reveiw was helpful to you:)

5-0 out of 5 stars This game rocks!
Animal Crossing is so cool. Put three stories to your house and personalize it! My Mom plays it too, and my Dad and my sister. Go fishing and sell your fish, catch bugs and sell them too, or send them to the museum. Make a small town and talk to the people who move, but keep the town clean and plant flowers, or no one will move in. I love this game!

3-0 out of 5 stars Addictive but pointless
Animal Crossing was really addictive at first, it was also somewhat fun for the first few months but after you get your expansions for your house and all the furniture you want ... there is really no point to it. Paying off Nook may take a while but in actuality, it only takes a couple of months of Stringfish, you're done.
Getting ALL the items will take a long time but getting most of the items, especially the ones you want won't take very long, especially if you're the cheating type and go and search up cheats and/or codes on the internet, it definitely doesn't take as long.
A good thing about this game are the NES games you can have in your house and also play the ones in other people's homes. The best one would have to be Wario's Woods. Talking to the people in town is different and the jobs can be worth while at first but once again, after a couple of weeks ... it's repetitive and gets extremely boring.
Seriously, this game has no storyline. It's a pointless game yet it can be addictive for the first few months you have it. If you keep a journal in your house, and you own this game for over a year or 2, you will notice how empty some of the months are because you never play.
It's almost near impossible to make the well happy, the gifts from the mayor are stupid, worthless and again pointless and Nook, Rover and Mr. Resseti never shut up. They talk and talk and it's so annoying. Rover is the worst, you just want to get to the other town to get one thing and he blabs on about some crap you already know about since this is your 100th visit.
This game can be a good buy, if you really, REALLY like it ... but it will only last a couple of months before you put it on the shelf and it starts to collect dust. I would suggest you buy it at a pawn shop for cheaper if you like it rather than spend the extra money on a game you'll never play again once you've "beaten" it (by that I mean pay off your loan, etc). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Game Coming Soon.
The first Harvest Moon game I had ever played was HM64, and I keep getting the newer versions. Okay, I'll admit that HM64 had its flaws, and HM:STH was just plain pathetic (it lacked a bunch of features older games had), but this one looks really promising!

A Wonderful Life will contain elements of all the past Harvest Moons all wrapped into one. Staying true to the series' tradition, it will of course feature completely non-linear gameplay, letting gamers create a unique life of their own. It's just you, a farm, and the rest of your life. You'll have to successfully manage your farm,

FEATURES

-Harvest Moon at its best, live life how you want to and enjoy a completely non-linear gameplay experience

-Get married and raise a family

-Farm your crops and create all-new hybrid vegetables

-Brand new farmyard animals to raise

-A Wonderful Life draws on the best qualities of the series and promises to add more

Some other information I found on the Victor Interactive Site is below!

-The game will be in a completely new town with a story as long as 30 years.
-There will be 6 tales and 40+ characters.
-You can have a child.
-If you connect the GameCube game to the GB Advance game new events occur, character dialogue changes and other things!

I have a really good feeling about this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars A brilliant addition to the Harvest Moon series.
I've been a Harvest Moon addict for years, and I was thrilled when I found out that there was to be a new game for Gamecube. On the day it came out, I called literally over 20 different places (including Gamestop, Sam Goody, Target, Walmart and EB Games) and most places told me it was going to be released the following day (despite the fact the official site said the 16th!) so I grudgingly waited until the next day, and it was worth it! I'm 13, and to me $40 is a lot of money, which is what the game cost, but as I said it was completely worth it. The graphics are beautiful, and the gameplay is awesome, as is the plotline. I love that you can actually raise your son (usually he stays a toddler all his life!). Pros- Addicting gameplay Gorgeous graphics More realistic produce (cows only give milk after they give birth etc) Raise your son! Play through 6 chapters, adding to 10 years in the game altogether Cons- Only three potential brides - I liked having five or six Long days The fishing system is utterly boring. If you've never played Harvest Moon before I'd suggest renting this before buying, because it might not be your cup of tea, but for those of whom love the series, this is a must have!

5-0 out of 5 stars a review :)
This game is the best :). It's easy and fun. If u win it, or finish it, u can do it over again the same way, or differently. Unlike other games, if u win them, it's the same thing over and over. But this one u can re-play it a billion times if u want. If u don't want a fast moving, complicated game, this is the game 4 u. :)

Looks like fun
I just bought this from amazon and i had it be the one day shipping. It should arive tomorrow and tomorrow i will get to play it. This game looks like a really fun game. I enjoy playing the sims and this looks like it will be just as fun. So anyways this looks like a great game and it looks like it will be a lot of fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars This Game Rocks!
This game really expands and adds a lot of new features on to the other Harvest Moon games. In the other games you only play for one or two years, which if you have nothing better to do besides play, goes fast. In this new game you can play for six chapters, which is thirty years.
There are so many types of animals in the game. Normally you can only have cows, chickens and a horse, but in this game you can raise sheep, goats, and ducks in addition to the other animals. You also can have a pet dog and cat.
Another great new feature is that you can cross breed plants. You can mix watermelons with potatoes, and carrots with strawberries. The possobilities are endless.
To continue into the 2nd chapter you have to get married. There are three women to choose from, Celia, Nami and Muffy.
You also get to start a family. Your son will look like your wife.
This game is great. I reccomed it, and the Game Boy Advance version highly. Two thumbs up, 5 stars. ... Read more

Amazon.co.uk Review

Six years. Six long years we’ve had to wait for a new Mario game, and finally it’s here. And even considering the ridiculously unfair expectations, Super Mario Sunshine is almost entirely as good as you’d hope and expect.

The premise of the game is that Mario’s tropical holiday is ruined when he’s stitched up by an evil look-alike for daubing graffiti all over the island. Rather conveniently, there’s a water pump waiting for him to use, which not only washes away the mess but also doubles as a handy jet pack. The jet pack aspect means that whenever you fall off something you have the chance to immediately recover. This built-in safety net means the game can afford to be far more ambitious in its level design than ever before, with massive levels filled with trampolines, tightropes, water-powered windmills, huge coral reefs, and mountains and mountains of platforms.

The whole thing looks amazing, too, with the most realistic water ever seen in a video game, and a near-infinite draw distance. On top of all this are rideable, fruit-juice-spewing Yoshis, extra water nozzles, super-hardcore platform levels where Shadow Mario nicks your jet pack, and goop-generating bosses who seem to live to make Princess Peach’s laundry a nightmare.

After the sweet but rather short pleasures of Luigi’s Mansion and Pikmin, you need have no fear that Mario Sunshine is of a similarly brief nature. There are a total of 120 shines to collect--the same number of stars as in Super Mario 64--and the game world is at least as large and far more interactive. This is without question the best game on the GameCube yet. That may be no more than you'd expect from a Mario game, but it's certainly more than most of us mere mortals deserve. --David Jenkins ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good game, a teensy bit disappointing
What do I love about SMS... almost everything. The classic Mario 64 gameplay makes a triumphant return, if you played it, you'll automatically feel right at home with Mario Sunshine. And the waterpack is a fantastic addition. There's so much that it adds to the gameplay mechanics that it's just PLAIN NOT FUNNY. The controls are tight; some of the tightest ever.

What else do I love... the graphics. Everything is detailed (except for Isle Delfino's inhabitants), and everything is affected by the heat... you can see objects in the distance blurred by the heat. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING reflects in the water, from coins, to the sky, including clouds, to mountains, and Mario himself. Nothing is left out.

I also love it's challenge. It's a little easy at first, but some objectives are very challenging... sometimes too challenging.

Oh, and the camera isn't nearly as bad as everyone is saying it is. Trust me.

What don't I love about SMS... Well, there's not too many levels... 7 or 8. But there's still 120 shines to collect. But after a while you get sick of the levels you're playing in, and when you do beat the game after getting 60 shines or so, you probably won't have the incentive to get the other 60 shines. And if you do, there's not much of a reward. I wish something could've been done about that.

But other than that, SMS is a great game, and you're doing a disservice to yourself by not playing it.

3-0 out of 5 stars SUNSHINE OK - BUT NOT GREAT EITHER
First of all, you should know I'm a Super Mario Brothers fanatic. I have played all Mario games imaginable and all have been outstanding. With this being said, I'll go ahead and express that Super Mario Sunshine is ok, but not great.

Mario Sunshine is a very cute game with a sweet feel to it, but it failed to deliver innovation and top quality graphics, soundtrack, and challenging gameplay. Yes, it is initially fun to play, but it isn't anything breathtaking as Mario 64 was.

First, experienced players will find this game to be very easy to pass. The gameplay is easy, and acquiring sunshines becomes repetetive and predictable. For instance, in every world there's always red coin collecting, a Shadow Mario chase, and those Secret obstacle course areas. It's evident that the developers lacked imagination because in many worlds you get to do these tasks even twice. The difficulty level is a piece of cake compared to its predecessor, Mario 64. There are a few episodes that are tricky at first, but you eventually figure the solution very quickly. Now, Mario has a new water tool to play with, but I didn't find that amusing. I could care less if he used it or not. I missed the ability to punch enemies, and transform into different things. I actually felt Mario's powers were more limited in this game. He can jump higher, but that's about it. Managing the camera angles is a constant struggle. There are areas where you are enclosed between walls, and you can't see Mario. I guess that's about the only major difficulty in this game...lol. Bad, bad, bad.

Second, the quality of the worlds you explore are not very impressive. Being a game for the Gamecube console, the graphics are not something to be awed of. With the exception of water, lightning, reflection, and shadow effects, the textures displayed are ugly to look at. I truly felt I was playing a Nintendo 64 sequel to Mario 64. I really was expecting sharper graphics. Another thing that dissapoints is the redundance of the worlds. Almost every single world is the same thing altered in a different way. They're all sunny, colorful, and invaded by water. Another issue is that there are only a few worlds to explore as opposed to 15 in Mario 64. These worlds are a little big, but not as huge as everyone hyped them to be. These worlds are about the same size as those found in the Banjoo-Kazooie titles. The animation sequences are very bad, too. The cinemas don't run smoothly. The screen keeps going black in order to show the next image. I think Mario 64's introductory and final animations were way better. These are the little things that are shameful considering the game was designed for a superior system.

Third, the game's soundtrack is repetetive and non catchy. You get to hear the same theme in almost all the worlds. What else can I say?

Overall, it's an OK game. Many claim Sunshine to be as big as Mario 64, but I think it's only half the size as Mario 64. Yes, this game has about 120 sunshines to collect, but the game feels short due to the easy gameplay and limited worlds. If you are new to 3D Platform gaming, then you will find this game quite a big challenge to complete. But if you're an experienced gamer, you'll catch on very quickly. So, I gave this game 3 stars based on the "experienced player" view. If you are new to 3D gaming, your rating may be higher.

4-0 out of 5 stars This game is great!!!
I loved this game!! I rarely get so far in a game. I usually have to get my dad or brother to beat it for me. But I'm soo far!! I have lost interest at some points, but then started playing again. The puzzles in it I did have to get help from my brother. They were, I think, pretty hard. So I could do, but most of them were really hard. I loved beating the bad guys!! And my favorite squirting tool was the one that made you go really fast. I would go on the water with that and it was soo much fun. :D I really loved the secret shine spirits!! That was fun looking for them too! This game was awesome!!<br /> <br /> I gave it a 4 star because it wasn't my favorite game ever. I am a big fan of Final Fantasy. But it was really fun to play! I suggest if your good at maneuvering stuff, this is a game for you! <br /><br />

5-0 out of 5 stars Best game ever!!
I recently bought Mario Sunshine and at first I didn't like the game because i didn't really understand what to do. But I figured it out fast and it was awesome! My friend and I would play all the time and we usually aren't that addicted. Mario Sunshine is a huge leap for the better from Super Mario Brothers which I used to love. This is a farely old game but very fun. I encourage you to go out and buy it, it's only 20 dollars. A much better price than the new ones which are 50 dollars!

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect but still great.
This was a great game but not very consistent.There are two throway levels but most of it is great. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Buy only if you do not have a PS1 or PS2
I have it. After beating Resident Evil Zero & the remake of the first, I wanted to jump right in on GC's RE3:Nemesis. There are slightly faster frame rates and a different use of controls to support the GC's controller. That's all.

The RE3 PlayStation Dual Shock Version with the original and rearranged data is the same as this passed off port. I don't need to review the game itself, it is another chapter in the saga that is well-known to fans.

If you don't have a PlayStation1 or 2, then this is a solid buy. If you've never played RE3 and don't have the PS, it is a solid buy again. Whoever is making up the stories about the better graphics or a remake is fooling you.

Don't get me wrong, RE3 is a great game, but it is a port. Graphics, game, content and all. I rated it 3 stars because of the marketing tactic. The original PS version is a 4.5 star game. You'll notice that this review will be posted on RE2 as well because Capcom did the same with that one.

Creepy atmosphere, decent graphics for it's time, lots of zombie battles, spooky sound, the Nemesis stalking you.
The Bad
You must find and mix gunpowder to make bullets and ammo (a real pain), cheap kills in the form of a giant worm that traps and repeatedly kills the player.
The Ugly
The graphics are Playstation quality, nothing is new for the Gamecube, no high-polygon models or lighting effects here folks.
The Verdict
A solid game with decent graphics and scary atmosphere, but do not pay full price for it, it's a repackaged 2 year old Playstation game, shop around.

2-0 out of 5 stars not my type of game
ive played this game for like a few hours and i thought i was stupid and scary i gave it two cause its lotrs of fun shooting zombies but the thing really bothering me is the main enemy of the game NEMESIS. He follows you nonstop and i hate games when they follow you the entire game cause its annoying and theres no new creatures and theres not even new graphics. you can play this game if you like....but i warned you.

5-0 out of 5 stars The scariest Resident Evil!!!!!!!!!!
This game came out on the Playstation and Dreamcast back in 1999 and you experienced being chased by some Jason Voorhees like character called The Nemesis which freaked you out because he followed you all throughout the game!!!! The Gamecube version has slightly upgraded graphics from the Dreamcast version with the cliping and bulging of the characters gone!!!! It is still a great game even for it's age!!!!! It's graphics may possibly be the some of the poorest on the Gamecube but it is still worth playing despite the abysmal visuals!!!!!!!

Not A REMAKE!
RE 2 and 3 are no remakes, just reformated games to be put on the Gamecube. The only remake was the first RE and thats it and everything else is the same as the Playstion versions. Dont waist your money on buying a game you can just get for the PS witha cheaper price. Who ever said that this and RE3 has better graphics is wrong. They've been talking way to much about nothingm, they are just assuming things that become big lies. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game
Wario World is a very fun game. Like most Wario games, Wario is collecting treasures, but this time these treasures actually did belong to Wario. At some points in the game it's like a 3D side scrolling platformer, while other times it takes on more of a free roaming type 3D platformer. In this game, Wario can do some interesting moves like the Wild Wing-Ding, the Piledriver, and the Hypersuction. Also, if you gave a GBA and a link cable, you can upload samples of Warioware Inc.: Mega Micro Games$ to play on your Gameboy Advance as you progress through the game. Buy this game!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Game.
Wario. The name is vagely familar, right? Wario is a very unipreciated character in the nintendo universe. He has always been there, too. So many people discarded Wario in multiplayer games like Mario Party and Mario Kart. I was in the crowd that didn't like Wario. This is because Nintendo really didn't even try to expand on his character. They created an Anti-Mario, pasted a couple of catch phrases (I'ama gonna win, Wahaha...), with a few mediocre gameboy games. Wario made his first ripple in Wario Ware, a simple game that is absoulty exactly what the game boy was made for. Now in Wario World, Wario must save his castle from an evil jewel. Stupid story, right. But, when you enter the first level, punch a little dinosaur, he goes flying, and Wario utters, "Have a rotten day," you know that this is going to be a fricken awesome game. And it is. Some people say it is short. They are right and wrong. I got it on Saturday and now, after just completing it on Monday, I wish it was still there with four more worlds, but it isn't. Four worlds each with two levels, and three bosses. That's what the game's make up is. The levels are huge and unuique. Getting all the treasures could go down as a game itself. In conclusion: Wario World has just made my top five Gamecube list and my top 10 video games ever list. Rent it. Love it. Don't pay the 50.00 admission, wait for a price drop. When it does. I'll be first in line to buy it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game!! I loved it!
I love this game! and it's not that easy, it's quite challenging. The music is great! graphics are beautiful. Not boring at all!! who ever said it was boring is crazy! I bought it at walmart when it came out for $50 bucks It is also a quite long game too! I hope they come out with wario world 2

5-0 out of 5 stars This game ain't for kids only
It's fun and CANNOT BE FINISHED IN 3 HOURS. Unless you got a strategy guide or some kind of cheat. It has many hidden things you have to unlock to advance, and believe me, is hard to make the tricky moves. You don't just have to kill the main monsters but find all the hidden jewels, hearts, etc. This game is not only for kids, but adults will have an entertainig time as well. Well made and hilarious; you have to get it.

2-0 out of 5 stars What a boring game.I think its stupid.
Man oh man this game is fun for about 5 minutes and after that it gets really really old.Dont get me wrong I love easy games.You know ones like Luigis Mansion and Sonic Adventure but man this game is just the same thing over and over.The only reason why I kept playing it was because something cool might happened.Guess what it didnt.The only reason I gave this game 1 star instead of 2 was because hardcore Wario fans might like it.Other than that it sucks. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for relaxing with friends
Mario Golf provides a nice break from the frenetic, white-knuckled stress of many multiplayer video games. Yet, despite its slow pace and lack of explosions or gunfire, it's far from boring. My roommate and I have logged many, many hours playing golf (not to mention an unbelievable amount of time already invested in the Nintendo 64 version) and Mario Golf simply doesn't get old.

Nintendo has improved on the sort of basic golf simulation video game by using not just its proprietary characters, which are entertaining, but by using some creativity in course design. The courses are varied enough to keep the game fresh, and the graphics are nothing short of remarkable. The character art looks great, but the truth is in the details: the trees in the background, and even the grass on the course, look fantastic.

Most of all, though, the game is FUN. The addition of an "automatic" two-tap system means that even your non-gaming buddies can pick up a controller and play along immediately. And the reviewer who complained that he beat the game in four hours obviously didn't spend hours playing the many side and bonus games which allow you to unlock additional characters and to improve the ones that are initially available.

Finally, the game promises some exciting connectivity with the Game Boy Advance, which is great news for those who own both systems.

This Will Be A Great Game!
Mario Golf 64 was a fun game to play, but Mario Golf Toadstool Tour should be better. I played this games as a demo at a local game store. It took me a while to get the hang of the controls, but hey, all games take a while to get used to the controls. I was having trouble with the distance grid and getting a close up on the hole. After a while I got the hang of it, and started getting a birdie on the holes. I rated this game 4 stars because the graphics are amazing, the sound is okay, gameplay is great, and overall it is a fun game. I will definitely buy it when it comes out. Give this game some time, and you will see that this game is fun, and enjoyable. When I saw a movie on the computer about it, it looked really complicated, but it isn't. This game will be a hit!

5-0 out of 5 stars I Took a Gamble on This One
I have never even played golf before in my life, and I don't really like sports or sports games in general. I bought this solely because it's a 1st party Nintendo title and it has Mario in it.

Fortunately, I now love this game! It was a little hard to get used to at first, probably because of my unfamiliarity with the game of golf, but once you learn the controls, it's truly awesome!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wait to buy!
Wait until after April 29th to buy this game. Nintendo has announced that the price will drop by twenty dollars then.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this game
Mario Golf is a great game for those who are horrible at real golf, but are good at video games. I found that it was hard at times even though i have been playing video games for over 10 years. There are so many different challeges, courses, and secret characters to unlock, that you can never get bored of it! A must buy. ... Read more

awesome team play
my kids are not realy into team playing and "COOPERATION" but this allowed them to really learn how to put the virtue of "PATIENCE" and "TEAM SPIRIT" into practice with fellow gamers be family members or neighborhood kids. my youngest kid even learned how to be thorough and is really using his skills to pay attention to details!!! It's a one of a kind game! I really give this game a 5 stars X 1,000,000!

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is one of our favorites......
I purchased this game for my 9-year-old son and he loves it. The plot, graphics, and animation are very well done and a sense of humor is exhibited throughout. I find it fascinating that each character has a different super-power, and they must work together to reach objectives. So, the game teaches teamwork! This is one of the best Gamecube games I have seen for the under-12 age group.

awesome game
My 7 year old got Shrek 2 for his birthday and LOVES IT! He said whoever made this game is a genious. My 10 year old loves it also. We recently purchased the game for 2 other kids who also say the game is great. I would highly recommend buying this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent game for younger players (age 8 and up)!
I read the reviews here and was doubtful about the game. My son really wanted it so I rented it first. It is a perfect level for him. I actually like playing it, too! Earlier reviewers said it was "too short and easy." That may be the case for advanced gamers, however, it is challenging and interesting enough for my son who is 8 years old. After renting it we decided to buy it!

4-0 out of 5 stars A nice game....
This was a fun game, even thought it was a bit short. It was fairly easy, but entertaining. I enjoyed being able to play all the different charaters. Little Red and Puss 'n Boots were my favorite for their attacks. I think young kids will really get a kick out of it, but serious gamers would probably pass on it unless they really, really love Shrek 2. (...)it's definately worth renting from the video store. Be careful though, too many hours of gameplay can temporarily fry your Gamecube because the game moves at such high RPM(it's got a lot of high end graphics and cut scenes). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A good game to rent first, then buy if you enjoy it
If you're familiar with the Metal Gear Solid series, you know the story. Stealthy guy infiltrates enemy encampment and knocks out or kills whoever he encounters.

The game is a very strange hybrid. On one hand it's like Splinter Cell, with lots of peering around corners and timing your moves with how the guards walk. But the camera controls aren't as smooth as in Splinter Cell - so while you can zoom in to a first person zoom, it can be a bit awkward.

On the other hand, it's an explore-the-map adventure game, sometimes leaving you frustrated as you go over the entire area trying to figure out what to do next. It makes the game last a while, I suppose, because if you just played the game from start to finish (ignoring the very, very long cut scenes) you could easily play it in a weekend without much trouble.

The AI is interesting, but not nearly as realistic as many other games on the market right now. The new Bond game Everything or Nothing comes to mind as having incredible AI. In comparison, the people you run into in Twin Snakes seem to have owl-like eyes and ears, able to hear even your slightest movement as you hide behind a wall.

The graphics are a strange combination of good and old. In some situations the graphics are quite nice and cinematic ... but in other situations it feels like you're playing an old-system Playstation game instead of a new generation console game. You'll get caught up in the flow of the good graphics and then something jarring will show up and kick you back out of the mood.

The audio is rather good on the voice side, with the various characters really helping you connect with them. On the other hand, the sounds in-game aren't always of good quality and in some situations sounds you'd expect to hear are completely missing. So again it's very uneven.

Definitely a fun game to rent, to watch the cinematics and be part of the long epic which is the Metal Gear Solid series. If you're a fan of it after that, then certainly buy a copy! But this is a title that definitely appeals to some, and really annoys others. It's best to find out which category you fall into first.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clasic Metal New Gear
First of all this game is sweet.I thik this game is one of the best ever.Don't even get me started on the graphics! These graphics are so good that it makes the game more funner.This game is going for players choice, bottom line! I'm sorry for xbox and ps2 because first of all xbox doesn't have it and ps2 does but with cheap graphics.

Anyways the legendary story line of the original metal gear solid.The cutting-edge gameplay of metal gear solid 2 sons of liberty.Fused together in metal gear solid the twin snakes, the best of both worlds available exclusively for nintendo gamecube.With new cut scenes,new game design and the creative vision of the game's originator, Hideo Kojima, it's a brand new game that's already a classic.So what I'm trying to say is that the graphics are sweet, the gameplay is sweet,heck the whole game is sweet.I would recomend this game to all the people that I can.

5-0 out of 5 stars MGS 1+MGS 2=AWSOME
I never really played the old metal gear solid game buy i recently purchased Sons of Liberty for PS2. And boy was it great. So I saw a commercial for Twin Snakes and i thought "What the Heck..It looks good. So I bought it. IT BLEW MY MIND. AWSOME STORY. GREAT HAND TO HAND COMBAT, FUN FIRST PERSON. SIMPLY AMAZING.That pretty much dercribes it

5-0 out of 5 stars One of The Best games ever made...
I am one of those people who bought the origanal because of the good things we were hearing about it, and I wasnet dissapointed at all. One of the best plots ever put into a video game, mixing reality with fantasy and hitting just right. But, the graphics and some of the dialog was really outdated, so when they remade it, I picked it up quick. Some of the reasons why I love this game are as follows:

1. Villiens- This game packs some of the coolest villiens in video games. Im a big beleaver that a hero is only as good as the villien he or she is fighing agaist, and MGS TS did this perfectly.

2. Cut Scenes- With this version, you get WAY better cut scenes. Updated graphics help make this game more real, and will make it age way better.

3. Music- One of the biggest reason why this is better than the origanal is the great score with it. True, down to earth, ruthless operative music.

4. Story- This is one of the best games cuz the story is so that u dont know whats ganna happen next. Things just continue to happen and even with all that is happening, u must fight on.

The only thing I kinnda fround on is the matrix feel I was getting out of the cut scenes. But other than that, this movie is well worth the $40 price tag.

5-0 out of 5 stars Have these old Gears gotten rusty?
The short answer is no. Here's the longer one:

This game is excellent in every way. It takes the setting and cutscenes of the original Metal Gear Solid and combines it with Metal Gear Solid 2's gameplay. The levels have been rearranged so that this works. Snake can now shoot in first-person, drag guard's bodies, hang from rails...everything from MGS2.

Graphics are good, but Solid Snake looks kind of odd. Also, Otacon (dork) has no chin. Animation is identical to MGS2 (that means it's solid...heh heh).

Cutscenes are incredible; hands down, the best cutscenes in any videogame. Every single motion is completely motion-captured and looks great. All of the main characters have good voice actors (except Otacon), especially Ocelot (Patric Zimmerman), Liquid (Cam Clarke), and Ninja (Rob Paulsen).

The only complaint you might have is that the game is only 5-6 hours long (12 hours when playing it for the first time, and watching cutscenes while you're at it). There are six difficulty levels, though, so it could last you 30+ hours.

Highly recommended; the guys at Silicon Knights (developers of Eternal Darkness) have done it again. ... Read more

Great Game
MIIB IS A GREAT GAME. IT'S A GOOD BUY FOR THE MONEY. BUT IT TAKES TO LONG TO LOAD UP.

A good game, but not the best.
This is the Men in Black reproduction for the Gamecube. It's come out a little late, but if you don't have the playstation2 version, get this instead. It has slightly better graphics, a few added power-ups and rooms, and better sound effects.

Gameplay: 8/10 Good gameplay; aiming doesn't mess you up, not too montonous, and replay value is o.k.

Storyline: 10/10 The storyline is very goood, with several surprises and a great ending .

Graphics: 8/10 The graphics are better than average; finer than the playstation version, and very smooth, and detailed; less polygonal shapes, and good detailing. However, although good, this is not the best out there.

Controls: 9/10 The controls are good, easy to get used to at first, but later on you find that speed reflexes might have been better

Overall: 35/40 giving you an average of about 8.5/10. It's a good game, but not the best out there. Even so, it is very good, and I would advise you to buy it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Shooter fans will love this!
First of all, this game is great. If you liked the movies, you will have a blast relating to the humor and storlyine conections, as well as aliens from MIB II. It really feels like a 3D Contra game, however, which is great. A wide selection of guns, exciting levels, and awesome control. The difficulty is on the challenging side, but it is not as difficult as the average Contra game. Aiming is fairly easy, but it fits the game perfectly. Yes, this is the same game that is on PS2, and not much hs changed. Graphics are a litle more detailed, the framerate is smoother, and levels have an extra room or power-up here and there. However, it is not worth buying again if you own it on PS2. Action gamers will love it, as this is a pure adrenaline rush. Slightly better than the PS2 version. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Zoids for Game Boy Advance and Game Cube
Category: Action
Players: 2 players simultaneous
Release Date: Sep 2004
Publisher: Atari

Players can take on the role of their favorite Zoids TV show characters, including Bit and Van. You can pilot 40 different Zoids and customize them with more than 100 weapons. This game is coming out for Game Boy Advance and Game Cube. I think that it is best though, to buy it for Game Cube because the graphics and controls will be better.

Features:

* Mission Mode: Fight for the Empire or the Republic in the ongoing story for control of the Planet Zi
* Battle Mode: Climb into your Zoids and wage war
* VS. Mode: Go head-to-head in awesome two player Zoids combat
* Fists Mode: Inflict damage by using advanced fighting methods in a confined arena
* Unlock new modes by mastering various storylines and missions

Bottom Line:

At last, Zoids fans can battle with their favorite Zoids. And this game is only on Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance!

awesome zoids
thIS GAME IS THE BEST FOR AL ZOIDS FANS. iMAGE GIANT ROBOTS SHOOTING CAANNONS AND MISSILES AT EACH OTHER, WHILE RUNNING AROUND WITH YOU IN CONTROL. i SUJEST ANYONR TO BUY THIS GREAT GAME. thERE ARE 4 MODES TO PLAY WITH OVER 100 WEAPONS, AND 40 ZOIDS. a MUST HAVE.

5-0 out of 5 stars finaly
i've been monitoring this games progress for a year and first it was supposed to come out march fifth but now it comes out in september , lets hope they stick to there deadline this time.
this game is a english version of two japaneese games that called Zoids Vs. and Zoids Vs.2 both of which are amzingly great.
Zoids battle legends is mainly zoids vs. but with the new zoids, upgrades, maps ,story lines, and weapons of zoids vs.2 put into english form. i guess the gameboy version will be OK but im not to interested mainly because with a game with so much potential it shouldn't have to be doomed with the bad graphics and sound of a gameboy,(no offense to the gameboy systems but your just not good enoughg to handle this kind of game.) I can't wait for this to come out they have zoids on this that aren't even seen through models and the show which might I add are totaly awesome.
The only downside I could posibly think of about this game is that it is only compatible with Gamecube but I guess as the game grows older they will make it availible to all the systems like they do with all the other really good games. Overall this should be the best game over all the mechanized robot action games mainly because there aren't to many of them but it should proove somewhat good if they have been advertising this long and that the japeneese version were a really big hit in Japan.
So save up and buy this as soon as possible becausre when they hit the shelves there gone in a minute to any passer byer as this happens with any new game trust me i know.

5-0 out of 5 stars zoids:battle Legends are the best man

THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
I said it once, and I'll say it again: THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Okay, your mission in the game is to help Professor Oak by watching lots of pokemon-oriented telivision shows with a wild Pikachu that wanders into your room when you first turn on the TV. Later on in the game, you get to nickname Pikachu after it spends the night in your room. You can do lots more than watch TV though... you can run around outside and meet wild pokemon to collect Pokemon Nice Cards, you can shop off the Shop 'n Squirtle network, and you can play games on a pokemon mini system. You can play on Quiz Wobbufett to win money and buy stuff, and then spend it on cool stuff from Shop n' Squirtle. You can buy buss passes and take them to Cobalt Coast, Viridian Forest, or Mt. Snowfall. You can explore the Cobalt Coast beach and go fishing with Pikachu, you can observe the many constelationos of the sky at Camp Starlight in the Viridian Forest, or you can brave through the scary darkness of the Ruins of Truth (and help Pikachu get un-stuck from the Golbat statue's mouth!) at Mt. Snowfall! You can test your pokemon knowledge as you collect nice cards from wild pokemon you meet, or you could just sit back and watch one of the many programs on Pokemon Channel, including an all-new anime never seen on TV... Pichu Bros., featuring a pokemon song never before aired in the US- Meowth's Party! Or, you could paint with the Smeargle 2 and then watch Smeargle himself play critic to your art on Smeargle's Art Study... or, you could just watch Mareep Farm and have a nice long nap...............Well, whatever you choose to do, this game is fun for anyone! I loved it, and I bet you will to! You won't regret buying it, that's for sure!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very cute GameCube replacement for Stadium minigames
Way back in the days of Red, Blue, and Yellow, a game was released called Pokemon Stadium. It featured tough strategic battles, cute minigames, and useful utilities like Pokemon storage, item storage, and a Pokedex. It was useful and entertaining and remains one of my favorite N64 games.

Later, Nintendo released a similar game called Stadium 2, which was identical to the first but with small adjustments to the unlockable features and battle moe, and including better graphics, new games, and compatibility with Gold, Silver, and Crystal Pokemon. This also was fun and useful.

However, with the release of Ruby and Sapphire, Nintendo actually split the expected Stadium-style games into three: Colosseum (which included battle mode and a new RPG mode), Box (which was purely a storage utility), and Channel (dealing with the mini-game side of things). Box looks like a useful utility, and Colosseum is wonderful, but Channel is a fun mixture between the classic Stadium and Stadium 2 minigames as well as the old game "Hey You Pikachu." In it, you befriend a wild Pikachu which is interested in your new TV (haha). You watch new shows every day, which include Psyduck's news, Squirtle's shopping channel, and Wobbuffet's quiz show. Each day you get new shows. The best part about this game is definately the availability of a special Pokemon episode featuring Meowth and the Pichu Brothers, who first appeared in the 3rd Mini-Movie "Pikachu and Pichu." This show comes in five parts, and you must search for the fifth along with Pikachu.

Though the addition of the animated episode was a wonderful touch, the interaction with Pikachu was not as good as the old game Hey You Pikachu, mostly because of the lack of microphone and the focus being taken off you befriending Pikachu. Also, the mini-games were not as entertaining as the Stadium and Stadium 2 games were. Mostly because of the cute episode, though, I give this game 4/5.

stop anoying your sister
In may I bought this for my daughter Amanda.The minute I got it, my son christian annoyed my duaghter all the way home saying it is a bad baby game.But when he played it he loved it!

1-0 out of 5 stars total crap!!!!!!!! not worth 2 bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I rented this game to play with my little sister when I babysat her. Well its not even a game! you watch your pikachu watch tv. thats all you do! accasionally pikachu will want to buy something on the shopping channel but usually you watch your pikachu watch tv.and the shows are crap. there is even a relaxation channel as if I wasnt bored enough. and since all of the pokemon can only say their name you have to turn on the subtitles. and you can only watch a certain amount of shows each day so you have to wait or reset your system clock. even if you like pokemon you will hate this game dont buy it

this game is good at first having a pikachu as a pet but if you play good for five days the game will be over.so i do not reconmmend to buy this game but if you are a pokemon fan go ahead and buy it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Old skool fun, totally awesome!
I should start off by saying that I .... have been playing Mega Man games since they first came out in the USA. But over the years I kind of skipped over the X series, and the Battle Network series.

For a while I had planned on getting this title, but really had to wrestle over my decision for a week or so. ...

Let me say, I shouldn't have worried -- THIS GAME RULES! More fun than most other games these days. The graphics are gorgeous 2.5d -- you are limited to moving in 2 dimensions, but the graphics are pretty much 3d (as well as cel-shaded -- but the mix really works well). A lot like the style of Super Smash Brothers Melee. Lots of really nice lighting effects, backgrounds, etc.

But what this game is really about is the action! It's not really too tough, but it's still challenging. Not mind-numbingly impossible by any means, but not a total cynch, either. It's the kind of game that sucks you in, and because you are having so much fun you don't notice how much time is passing. This is a good thing! Yes, you may have to go through levels a number of times to get them right -- who cares? That's what it's all about!

At first I found the chip system a little bit confusing, but now that I understand it, I really like it a lot -- tons of special weapons and flexibility in your approach to taking on the bad guys. The control scheme is very easy to learn, so you will be able to jump right in and start blasting viruses and navis gone wild.

GET THIS GAME -- don't question your decision, just get it, and you will be happy. Activates that little dopamine generator in your brain that not many games these days manage. Thank you, Capcom! And might I add, what a very reasonable price for a brand new title...Here, here!

4-0 out of 5 stars Blend of Old and New
I have been a megaman fan for as long as I can remember and, while this game isn't the best in the series, it definitely earns a spot in one of the best gaming franchises of all time. Network Transmission caters to both old and new fans to the series. Its gameplay is similar to the gameplay of the NES classics while basing the game off of the Gameboy Advance RPG's known as the Battle Network series. It is a great mix of old and new. Veteran fans will recognize bosses names from older games as well. Many have said that this game is too hard. While playing through this game I did notice quite a bit of difficulty, but just in the boss battles. One thing that makes it easier is that you really can't get a gameover ever if your smart. Whenever you get down to your last life you can choose to "jack-out" thus refilling your lives for another go at the level. I guess I would really recommend this game to any megaman fan because there is something in there for you whether you're a hardcore veteran or you're new to the series.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's not the best choice
Okay. This game is not the best game out of megaman, not even close actually. The people who even thought of making this game had too much of the "lets make game so hard that no1 will ever trade it in while they were't thinkin of making it nearly as fun the battle network games for GBA. They focus on killing megaman bout 10 times before beating gutsman and wastin all ur time finding 8 chips for 1 enemy. It's noyt that bad tho. It has great graphics for a mega man game on gamecube, and you'll spend hours trying too figure out how to beat the first boss. Overall:3

5-0 out of 5 stars cool, Thats it I don't like to right titles for reviews
This game is rocks. You may battle agaist gutsman, flameman, Bass, Ice man, elec man and about everyone else from the tv shows. It is also an adventure game to and you jump Like the way in the games Megaman 1-3 and Megaman v.s. Samus Aran( Yes People it is a real game just find it on the web I don't like when people send me e-mails telling me there isn't I have it and it is fun but also lame). You get dozen of chips has well. Even add power-ups to megaman and give him armor that reduces some attacks by half which ever your wearing. The grafhics too are awsome but it is in japenese. Well I'm out of here see ya.

5-0 out of 5 stars omigosh STOP WHINING
people, so what if its hard, isnt that what makes the game FUN?! (poor sports..) and bsides if u cant get past a part just go on an online strat guide jeez! and some people are complaining about the japanese talking...thats wut makes it better.......... Dubbed(American Voices) < Subbed (Japanese Voices Wit Subtitles) and im betting that the american voice would be MUCH more annoying than the japanese one (and bsides, dont u think japanese ppl would b annoyed when dey here english?), as most dubbed anime voices sound horrible....anyways...this is a great game buy it ;) ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game, Worms 3D
Most people who had never played one of the worms games would look at this and say "That look cheesy", or something on the order of that, but people who have played it before and or bought it by some odd chance, know that it is very fun, addictive and one of the best multi-player there is. If you've ever played any of the previous games, that's pretty much how it goes, a turn based blow up the enemy with whatever crazy weapons you have. A ton of things have been takin' from the older worms games, like the holy hand grenade, banana bomb, old lady, super sheep, air strike, uzi, mad cow, nuclear test, earthquake, etc, and everyone's favorite (Drum roll) The Concrete Donkey!!! The one thing about the Concrete Donkey is that you can't say you random number of your choice for a game, you have to play a certain level to unlock it, then it will randomly appear in a weonpons crate (But it is there if you want to know). The game play is very addictive, leaving you wanting to play more and more, whether it be single player campaigns, challenges to unlock weapons, or multi-player with a friend or you vs. AI. The single player missions can be hard sometimes, but I've had it for just over a week and I'm on the last one. You also want to try and get gold medals on levels in single player, because you can then use them in multi-player. Basically a great game, just like the old 2D ones only 3D (Duh), and go buy it or rent it, you'll love it!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars YES YES YES WORMS 3D ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! YAH
Worms 3D is awsome i love pitting those li'l fiesty invertabrates against each other with an arsinal of weapons and gagets, GOD THIS GAME IS AWSOME it's full of three dementional and totaly destructable yes folks destructable landscapes. this game is toatally fun and adictive, and the multiplayer has got to be the funnest part of the whole game you can choose the place you want to battle and not to mention that you can custumize the levles to your hearts dezire and you can also choose the time of day. And theres lots of new awsome weapons sutch as: Holly handgranade homing pidgeion fire punch and nukealer test plus tons of other weapons that are some of the reasons that make this game soooo frickin awsome. but there are a few minor glitches that kinda slow the game down a bit like the fact that if you play too long the sound starts to go out and you have to restart your system to fix the problem, but i digress this game is awsome and if you dont have it yet then your missin out on some serious chaotic fun.

5-0 out of 5 stars Honestly, a great game.
Worms 3D is a great game. Ok im not going to shout or lie about the game being perfect cuz its not but i am going to give you an honest review. This game far surpasses my expectations and for 30 bucks i could not have asked for more. Ive been a die hard worms fan since i was 3 and i must say 3d keeps the spirit alive.

Graphics: (8/10) The graphics are not phenominal but they are good. the colors and landscapes are rich and the polygon texturing is not too bad either. But really, who gives a C**P about graphics? dont be a grpahics freak.

Sound: (9/10) The sounds are good to say the least. What really had me on the floor laughing was the voices. You can pick from man man many many voice schemes and they all say differnt hillarious things. Ive logged almost 50 hours into this game an i have barley heard a 10th of the sayings.

Music: (7/10) Eh....

Gameplay: (10/10) I know you must think im crazy but really the gameplay here is, in my opinion, nearly perfect! Although ther are a few minor glitches, the controls are packed with just the right amount of sensitivity and the moving of your lil freeky crawler is almost flawless. also aiming is a sheer joy. its so simple yet you feel so rewarded when you gauged that wind just right and hit your enemy off a cliff. EGMs dead wrong about aiming being hard.

Replay: (9.5/10) what can is say, it the best friggin multiplay party game on the GCN!

Total (not an average): (9/10)

Sidenote 1: Although some complained about the sharing of one controller, i think it adds some fun gamplay tricks that can make a world of differnce in a very very close match... wink wink

sidenote 2: WTF YOU CAN NAME YOUR OWN TEAM! just select you team name on the team create screen and then select the name on the window that pops up and name away.

BOTTEM LINE: please if you want hours of good clean fun buy this game.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worms 3d SUCKS!!
This game is much too hard, stupid, and pointless to even waste your money on. I repeat: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Save it for something productive. Worms 3d is made out to be much more than it is. First off, in every round, the AI wins and has an unfair advantage.

All these people who posted five star reviews, you're wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still like the 2D versions better, but this is worth getting
I have grown up with the Worms game. Ok, well, more like it entered my childhood one day when my cousins brought over their Dreamcast and their new game...Worms Armageddon. We played for HOURS! I was laughing so hard I had to change pants because I wet myself, and I thought I was gonna die, as I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath. I've been playing often since. From Worms Armageddon, to Worms World Party, now to this. I was never able to play the origonal or Worms 2 (and any other before Armageddon, but I can't remember any at the moment), but I sure am glad I was introduced to this franchise. When I heard of Worms 3D, I was so excited. And finally, this morning after a gaming party, I got to play for about an hour. I am hooked. After everyone packed up their games, computers, etc. I had an urge to keep playing. I finally found a working mirror for the PC Demo, and I have just got done playing a few matches. I also plan on getting the game as soon as possiable. I am rarely pleased when my favorite 2D games go 3D, but this made a good transition. A good game, great price (A $26 launch price!?), and loads of fun...what more can you ask for! So grab your 3 friends, one controller, and a TV and get ready to laugh yourself to the Worms! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Some are missing the point...
The *beauty* of the game is that the micro-games are incredibly short and offer no explanation as to what you are supposed to do--it's not a flaw.

All the micro-games have only 5 controls: up, down, left, right, and button. In a couple seconds, you have to figure out what to do. With so few controls and such a short window, you *know* it's going to be something very simple, you just have to try and figure it out.

Even if you fail, you usually glean some info as to what you *should* have done, so the next time that puzzle comes around, you'll be ready for it.

It's hilarious to play this game in a group, and watch people try to do the right thing in that breif moment. Everyone gradually starts to identify the puzzles as they begin to repeat, and then it's about who has the fastest hands and best learning curve.

This is a great party game; just encourage all participants to go with the flow, and not get frustrated by the lack of instruction. Figuring out what to do in a couple of seconds without any instruction is really the heart of the game, and it's great fun if you give in to it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good at first but...
This game is addictive and fun at first, until you play all the games twice, this is a great game. But after you've replayed all the mini games, this game is pretty boring ... I wouldn't buy this game, I'd definitely recommend you rent it but don't buy it unless you really, REALLY like it. A game you will want at a party.

THIS GAME IS FUN BUT U HAVE TO ACT FAST
This game is really fun but sometimes i can't beat all of the bosses (i have to let my brother beat them lol) but anyway this game is really fun and i think a lot of kids will like it to play it to so go and buy it and have fun o and it is also i great 2-4 player game to

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is stupid...that's what makes it fun!
This game is insane. I saw it in my nintendopower and thought it looked interesting. So I rented it. I couldn't put it down playing by myself. And once I played with my friends I knew I had to have it. This game is crazy. You play five second games against your friends or agianst your old score. I suggest renting this game before you buy it. You'll either love it or hat, but you've got to give it a chance. All of my friends who I've made play it have stared at in confusion at first but by the end it's all they wanted to play. So you've got to play it for a little while before you decide. Because the question isn't whether or not it's strange it's whether or not you enjoy that kind of thing.

BEST PARTY GAME EVER!!!!!!!
Get this game if you have alot of controllers for GC and likes to play with people. Over 200 funny colorful games in 1!!!! get this game if you like Super Mircro games. BUY IT!!! The Graphics are good and This Game is funny get this game!!!1 ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Mega Man Anniversary
OK, so I only played Mega Man 2 on the NES and never got around to playing the other Mega Man series.

I was so excited about the MegaMan Anniversary game and I played Mega Man 2. It is true about the controls, it can be difficult at first, but it takes some getting used to. I tried playing the other games and I'm still having fun with them. I really don't care too much for Mega Man 7 or 8, even though the graphics and the music are better than Mega Man 1-6.

Two things though, where was Mega Man X for the Super Nintendo? And they should have had a control configuration in the options screen.

In Mega Man 2 (this is what I know so far), you don't have to write down the password. The game saves where you left off so I don't think there is a need to write down a password. And you also don't have to go to your weapons screen. You can change your weapons using your L button. (Now I see why people are complaining about the controls LOL)

Other than that, I will continue to play the Mega Man Anniversary.

5-0 out of 5 stars Old school gaming has never looked or played so good !
I've waited for Capcom to do something special for Mega Man's 15th Anniversary, and finally it happened. For the first time ever, Capcom has released a collection of the classic Mega Man titles. Although the entire X series are not included in this collection, Mega Man Anniversary Collection, is every Mega Man fan's dream come true.

In this collection, you get the following:

Mega Man (NES)
Mega Man 2 (NES)
Mega Man 3 (NES)
Mega Man 4 (NES)
Mega Man 5 (NES)
Mega Man 6 (NES)
Mega Man 7 (SNES)
Mega Man 8 (PSX)
Mega Man: The Power Battle (Arcade)
Mega Man: The Power Fighters (Arcade)

Sadly, the two arcade games are unlockable. But I'm not gonna take one star down because of that.

GRAPHICS:

If you've seen the graphics on all the Mega Man games, then that's exactly how they'll look like. No changes, no overhauls...just pure original vintage graphics. The only difference is that theres no slowdown or any errors like on the original NES carts. Capcom did a great job fixing all those slowdowns and errors.

AUDIO:

Once again...the same thing ! However I dislike the voice acting in Mega Man 8. That's the only thing that annoys me.

CONTROLS:

All the Mega Man games play exactly the same way as they should be. The only real change is that "B" is jump and "A" is fire. Plus the "Y" button enables you to do rapid fire. Now I've read a few reviews saying that the controls bite, and in result, they gave it one star. I have to disagree with them. The controls are actually pretty good, once you get the hang of it. And the slight changes are nothing to get mad about. At first, I didn't like the controls. But after a few minutes, I got used to it. These controls are actually pretty good.

GAMEPLAY/VARIETY:

You get to do more than just play all the Mega Man games. You can also unlock a gripload of extras, such as remixed music inspired by the series, the two Mega Man arcade games, picture galleries, and lots lots more. Although it's kinda frustrating to try to unlock the arcade games (I'm guessing you have to beat all eight of the games to get them), it's always good to play through all the games...well in my opinion at least.

FINAL OPINION:

I don't care what other people say about this collection. This is far by one of the best compilations I have ever owned ! Finally I get to play all Mega Man games without going through the trouble of buying a good conditioned NES and all the games, which is probably a LOT of money. You get all these games for $29.99...sweet deal ! This is a good way to celebrate Mega Man's 15th anniversary. Old school all the way !

If you're a longtime fan of the Mega Man series, or never tried some of the Mega Man games that you've been wanting to try, this compilation won't disappoint.

THIS GAME ROCKS
I've only owned 3 since this came out Megaman games(Megaman Legends,Megaman8,and Megaman battle network 3.) And I go on amazon and here it comes, in front of my eyes! GRAPHICS8/10 My aunt owned a NES and let me play megaman and everything looks the same.Still the 8-bit megaman. SOUND9/10 The sound is great except in Megaman8. They changed it all from the PS1 version. FUN10/10 This game is great fun and I recommend it to any megaman fan. (Megaman power battle rocks on high!!!!!!!) I finally figured out how to unlock it but I'm keeping it a secret. CONTROLS10/10 I know Capcom switched the controls and it took a little practice, but don't let that stop you from playing.(Everybody, STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE CONTROLS!!!!!!!!!Thank you.) This is a very great game and if you missed out on megaman,buy it now! Thanks, Capcom!Thank you for everything!

An almost flaw-less collection!
Of all the Mega Man games nothing beats the classic series, and the collection has all eight classic games on one disk. Two unreleased arcade games are also included. All eight games are almost perfect ports of the NES, SNES, and playstation games. The only parts that have been changed are the control setup (B is now jump, A is fire, X is rapid fire, and Y is slide)and the addition of the Navi mode which alerts you of danger, displays your health and special weapons, and it turns on new music in the playstation2 version. Overall the Mega Man Anniversary Collection is a great buy at only $29.99.

P.S. This game is actually rated E for Everyone, not Teen like it is displayed on this webesite.

2-0 out of 5 stars BIG disapointment
I really, really enjoy Megaman, and thats why I bought this game but, now I regret it! When I bought this game I thought I was buying gold. Instead, I bought a peice of CRAP! First of all this game does not support any stereo or surround sound, it's just mono. Second of all! the controls don't make any sense. You have to use the "B" botton to jump and the "A" botton to shoot. I have no idea why Capcom did that but, I guess it would take getting use to. Third of all! On Megaman 8 you can hardley hear the voices of the characters. The voices on the cut scenes also have problems. They sound like they're talking in front of fans(air fans). Honestly the Megaman 8 for the oringinal Playstation was much better than this. The music(wich G4 terriblie remixed)and 2 extra games are what keeps me from giving it a 1 out of 5. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Spyro: ETD is 1 of my favorites
Being new to the spyro series, I'm quite impressed. I've heard good things about it so I purchased the latest game, Enter the Dragonfly. It handles pretty good. A lot of fantastic realms & worlds to visit such as a rainbow level. Also I thought the animation of the characters was done well and believable. Hopefully next week I'll have more time to explore the game further. I highly recommend it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing
this game isn't as GREAT as Year of the dragon. here are the pros and cons:<br /> <br /> 1.Graphics quality+<br /> but then the graphics dissapear-<br /> 2. text-<br /> 3. challenging-<br /> some are too easy and some are WAY TOO HARD and im 15 and in high school!-<br /> 4. game play not as great-<br /> 5. length- WAY TOO SHORT<br /> 6. speed ways + the speed ways were fun and at least there were some cute creatures so it gets a 2. <br /> <br /> and for future spyro releases the should make the games like Year of the Dragon. <br /> <br />

1-0 out of 5 stars Too Many Text Boxes
I am a big fan of the original Spyro on the playstation. However, I was dissapointed when the series introduced the text boxes and excessive dialogue. I was hesitant to buy it because I was worried that it would have the annoying text boxes. Guess what? Not only do you encounter a text box with instructions every other minute of the game, but they are near impossible to read as they blend in with the background. In addition, some of the characters speak in foreign languages and you can't see the text box subtitles! I WANT TO HAVE FUN -- NOT READ INSTRUCTIONS! (There is an option of hints off but it does not remove the text boxes). I can't stand it! It won't be played for this reason.

1-0 out of 5 stars I hated this game!
I have always enjoyed the other games, but this one suck. In the other games you visited other worlds, and had really great challenges. But this was only in one little world, and hardly any levels or challenges. I would suggest you not get this game. It was really bad. The only thing that was good was the change in the quality of the graphics compared to the other games, and the extra special powers that Spyro gets. But to be honost, it's not worth having. I mean I beat this game in half a day and I like games that are challenging and take some time to accomplish. Not something that you can beat in half a day. Don't waist your time or money on this game. It isn't worth it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Gr

4-0 out of 5 stars Dirk doesn't fit the environment!
Yes, this game is fun and easy. The graphics are great, but Dirk the Daring looks annoyingly 2D, in the game and on the box. It's like putting some old cartoon in the real world. If you can ignore this fact, you will enjoy the game.

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS ONE FUN AND GOOD GAME
THIS GAME IS VERY FUN. THE GRAPHICS MAKE IT LOOK YOU'RE IN A CARTOON. DIRK IS VERY EASY TO CONTROL AND FITS INTO ALL THE SCENES AWESOMELY. SOME PUZZLES GET FRUSTRATING BUT ARE WELL WORTH IT AFTER YOU FIGURE IT OUT. AND DAPHNEY I WOULD GO THROUGH A CASTLE MYSELF TO GET THIS FOX. EXCELLANT GAMEPLAY EXCELLANT GRAPHICS AND EXCELLANT FUN. GO GET THIS ONE

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but a question about the extras
The other reviews do a good job in explaining this game so I won't get into details about it. I think it is overall a fun game to get, especially if you used to play it when you were a kid. Anyways, the problem that I saw about this game is that the movies in the extras part of the game that tell about the history of the game itself has audio problems. Now, I'm not sure if it's just my copy or all the copies do it but you cannot hear the voice of the commentary explaining the history. It is very low and the music totally over rides it. If anyone out there has the same problem or doesn't, please write a review letting me know. Because of this problem, I gave this game 3 stars. Otherwise, it would probably have gotten four for the game itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars History repeats itself.
I had flashbacks of playing Dragons Lair as a kid in the arcades hating that it sucked up the quarters when I saw Dragons Lair 3D on the shelf at my local video game store. Dragons Lair 3D is a must for fans of the original and has proven a nice game for the rest as well. The graphics are great, the sound is full and well worked, and the gameplay is easy to pick up on. Only complaint is that the levels are quite small. However, there are I believe well over 100 of them. I suggest going out to your gaming store and picking up a copy of Dragons Lair 3D. Dirk the Daring doesn't disappoint.

4-0 out of 5 stars Finally!
At last, Dragon's Lair can be played as it always should have been - in real-time 3D! I am glad to see this ground-breaking classic back and in good form. The look of the game is nearly the same as the original, but now you have complete control of your character. The developers have added some additional villainous creatures, but you still have the time-honored foes (Fire Drakes, Giddy Goons, Singe the Dragon). The game in its present state has 15 levels and over 250 "chambers" loaded with traps, puzzles, and secrets.

The cel-shaded animation is smooth and looks simply awesome. (It even supports HDTV 1080i, for those lucky enough to be able to take advantage of this!). The music and sound is great, and you can expect hours of gameplay. The only downside of this new Dragon's Lair is exactly that of the original - limited replay value. But it provides a wonderful bit of nostalgia for us older folks, and the younger kids should get plenty of play out of the game. ... Read more
