5-0 out of 5 stars Sickest version yet!
GC is the perfect platform for this title....I have been patiently waiting for TWS to respond to KSPS since being released, and I am not disappointed. The graphics are the best yet...even over the XBOX, and the game play is solid. Honestly I play the career mode, just to unlock levels, and the 13 hidden surfers so that I can free surf. This game has the best-simulated surfing feel and it has a ton of over the top tricks to go along with it. The problem I had with KSPS was the sliding feel, and lack of connection to the wave, which is perfectly executed in TWS Next Wave (Kind of a dumb title).
If you are a surfer then you will love this game.....if your not, I really don't care about you anyway! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great game.
I am an X-Box owner, so i usually ignore the Gamecube exclsives. But i was at my friend's house and he was going nuts about this game. He said it was like SSX 4, but for GC only. I didn't believe him of course, but i decided to try it since the first 1080 completely pioneered snowboarding games...It isnt quite SSX, but the game flat-out rocked. The graphics are definitely better than SSX (smoothness, models, enviroments...the whole 9), but the trick system is not as good. Also there is not as much depth. It just depends on what you prefer: freestyle with insane tricks, or racing with hardcore speed. And the one thing that really got my attention here was how well this title delivers the element of speed. When you get going down a good slalom course, you really fly.....and i mean very fast. Split-second decisions must be made, just like they would need to be flying down a slope at 60 MPH in real life...but with no risks. Its cool seeing some other humanity on the slopes other than just yourself (as it was in the first game). Now there are plenty of......skiers! Actually it doesnt get in the way of the gameplay, and adds to the realism. There are only 5 characters, at first, But there are also unlockables.
The multiplayer, i am glad to say, is worthy of being called a multiplayer this time around. It is FOUR PLAYER. Repeat, FOUR PLAYER. Believe me...having four snowboarders racing for one goal at insane speeds while staying within about 2 feet from eachother is some really intense stuff. Once again, the illusion of speed is pulled off perfectly, and you will be on the edge of your seat until you hit that power button...if you can bring yourself to do such a thing. Overall i would say this game is about as good as SSX 3 minus the trick system. So, once again, its basicly a matter of personal preference: freestyle with some awesome tricks and plenty of depth, or a racing simulation with some INTENSE speed, as well as hardcore graphics and multiplayer action. Those of you who have had your doubts about this title. Stop worrying.....forever.

5-0 out of 5 stars better than the first one
the original 1080 snowboarding game is probly my favorite game on my 64. I got this game a few weeks ago and ive probly put 20 hours into this game a week. (im 13 and on vacation, not much to do) Well anyway the music kicks ass and the graphics are even better. When ur going real fast,(like 125kmh) the mix of the controler chaking, the partial blurring in the outline of the screen (dont get me wrong thats a GOOD thing), and the snow splatering on the screen, adds up to make one of the most thrilling game on gc. The trick made took a while to get used to. Im used to the 64 where its b+(control stick). In this game its (b, x, or y)+(control stick), and "r" to spin. But still, the trick system is great. This game has beginnner, advanced, expert, and extreme modes, each with an avalnache mode at the end. In the avalnche mode you have to race down the mountain, always with an Avalanche behind you, chasing you down the hill. The loading times are about 5-9 seconds. But it flies by becasue as its loading you select the song you want played during your ride down the mountain. Also there is about 15 courses.

In the end i would reccomend this game to anyone. If i lost it i would buy it again right away if my parents were more supportive of my video game hobby.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Good Die Young
1080 Avalanche is like half a bowl of Frosted Flakes, GRRRRRREAT but not enough! Great graphics, great controls, great sounds, but what happened to this game's longevity factor? After playing for an hour, you get the feeling there's two characters to select from, and half as many stages to explore. You do the math.

The characters are well designed, but a serious lack there of makes that fact almost meaningless. The stages are superb, but once again, what good is a stage or two if there's only a stage or two? Nintendo distributed samples of 1080 in department stores for many months before this GameCube exclusive title was released, and from what I played, I found it a remarkable experience. When I purchased the game for $50 (many months ago), it was to my surprise the game wasn't worth half that. Today, 1080 Avalanche remains upwards of that price. To add injury to insult, the tricks could have been more polished. Other than that, the controls are excellent.

Nintendo can't expect massive sales from a game that's superior in all categories except endurance. The length of a game time and time again will prove to be its most vital element. That's all games, one player, two player, twelve players, sports games, role playing, and everything in between.

A low rating is given for a major reason. 1080 Avalanche is still half a hundred dollars since its release. A fair price would be $30, but even that's pushing it. Nintendo had a great game in the making, but mediocre stamina has left this title begging for sales. Chi-Ching!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Game just wish it was longer!!!
I rented this game before i bought it and beat it on extreme on the third day and won all on the prizes. But i am a very good at video games. Hought i got all there is to get i still play it.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good
This game is too easy. I got it 2 weeks ago and I'm already on extreme. People say SSX3 is better but if you want a 8 player game for only 3 memory don't get it. Sometimes multi player can get confusing. There is also a lot of shortcuts. It not as good as the first and the tricks aren't as great ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Game
This game is great. I just got it yesterday and I cant quit playing it. The best new thing might be the stadium pulse where u can make the fans scream louder and make it harder for the other team to hear or concentrate on running the play right. The "superhit" feature is awsome too, u can jack people really hard and injure them. just go out and spend the money it is defiently worth it

5-0 out of 5 stars EA Just Keeps Making It Better
I just bought NCCA Football and I've played it for a few hours, and all I can say is..WOW!!! This has to be the not only one of the best sports games available, but one of the best GC titles. EA has really gone all out to make NCCA 2005 the most realistic college game yet...and they have succeded. First off, the graphics are stunning. A lot of people claim the Gamecube can't produce good textures of player models, but those people should take one look at this game. The lighting effects are the most realistic of any game available, and sutble touches, like grass stains on jerseys and how the crowd looks and acts really look great. The sound is top notch too. The crowd is almost deafning at the home team's field, and the announce team and marching bands are vastly improved over last year's version. But, all that's just gravy on what is seriously, the most deep, challenging, and fun games on the market.

First off, the new "Match Up" stick is a welcome additon. Now, you can pinpoint which DB is nervous or rattled and exploit that for a big gain. But you also have to be smart about this and not rely on the Match Up stick on every down. If you do, you'll force balls into coverage and, on defense, blow the coverage and give up a big play. Speaking of defense, NCCA 2005 includes the "Hit Stick" that Madden 2005 will include. With a flick of the C stick, you can unleash a devestating hit on the running back or reciever and maybe cause a fumble. Watch out though, if you miss, you'll end up face down on the grass. The new "Stadium Pulse" is cool too. Now if you're the home team, you can pump up the crowd on key plays and cause the vistiting team's offense to flunk an aduible. You can also do this while a kicker is getting ready to make a clutch kick. The dynasty mode is the deepest and best of any sports game. You can now suspend and discipline players that are acting up off the field. You can also recruit non football athletes and deal with players who want to transfer. This is awesome for football fanatics, but it may scare off casual gamers. Finally, one of my biggest problems with NCCA 2004 was that your recievers could never catch the damn ball! Whether it was a floater or a bullet pass, they always dropped it!. In 2005, it's a lot easier to complete passes and take pressure of the running game(which benifits from the "Agile Running" system in 2005)

So in conslusion, if you enjoy any kind of football, BUY THIS GAME!! The only way you'll stop playing it is when NCCA Football 2006 is released.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
I just got NCAA Football 2005 yesterday. I played it for a few hours last night. So far it has been pretty fun. There are a couple things that aren't so great. The camera shakes sometimes. I highly recommend playing on a large television because it's hard to see anything on a 13" TV. Everything is pretty much the same from NCAA Football 2004. The home crowd meter thing is kind of a nuisance at times. The Dynasty mode is pretty cool. I've played 2004 on PS2 and I'd have to say that the GameCube version isn't quite the same. But it's still worth getting it.

5-0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite Game
This is the best game on the NGC. nothing can possibly be better than playing the all new Home-field-feature. Just imagine if you were Utah Utes, and had to play on BYU's home turf against BYU. BYU is winning 35 - 31, and It's the 4th Quarter with time ticking down. It's 3rd down, and The Utes have the ball at BYU's twenty yard line, with 20 sec left in the game, and no TIMEOUTS. The Utes hike the ball, the QB looks around... BUT WAIT, a BYU PLAYER CAME AROUND THE CORNER AND SACKED THE UTES QB! THE CROWD goes absolutly insane! The Utes have to hurry and line back up and call an Audible. Time is ticking, 10, 9, 8,.... The crowds cheering makes it hard for the Ute's Wide Recievers to hear anything. The Ute's QB gets frustraded, and just decides to call hike. The RATTLED QB throwes it up.... and BYU was able to pick it away for an interception. BYU wins 35-31.

Now imagine if that was your favorite team playing your arch-rival. I could only imaagine how cool that would be! This game deserves to be played by everyone. COLLEGE FOOTBALL RULES! GO BYU!

5-0 out of 5 stars Day one ... WOW.
With one evening of playing under my belt, I can only say "wow". Simply stated, the changes made in 2005 are far more numerous and impressive than the changes between 2003 and 2004.
Graphics are noticeably better. You can see the footwork a running back uses to avoid the arms of defenders on the ground or diving at them. Twisting tackles. More passes batted in the air. The folks at EA keep getting closer and closer to the real thing.
The home-field advantage is impressive. The crowd reacts very realistically. They are going nuts after a big play, while the volume is much lower after the other team hits you with a big gain. The added celebrations (with the mascot and crowd getting into the act) are a nice touch. After all, college football is about emotion.
A lot has been made about the match-up stick - which is a welcome addition. But after just a little playing, I'll also give a warning. It's great to know that your receiver is better than the guy across the line, but that doesn't matter much if he's not open - especially against zone coverage. I found myself relying too much on the match-up stick and forcing the ball into coverage just to try to get the ball to the hot receiver.
Another new, realistic twist - I started a dynasty and before my first game, I had to suspend my fullback (a position where I have NO depth) for academic reasons. Oh, the joys of being a head coach.
Recruiting looks a little different as well (although I haven't spend much time with it yet). You can have players transfer to or from your school in the off-season. Also, you must choose to spend your "points" on a mixture of recruiting, training and discipline. Instead of being limited to visits and/or phone calls from the head coach or assistant coaches, you have a larger number of gradients. You can spend just a little on a so-so player or devote a huge portion of your recruiting points to that one blue-chipper your dying for.
Wait a minute. Why are you still reading this...? Just go out and buy it. You'll be glad you did. ... Read more

EA Sports Messed Up On This One
I would just like to say that i am a huge EA Sports fan and that all their games i have played have been entertaining and have great quality and are not complex. Then, here comes MVP Baseball 2004. Some pros and cons:

Pros: Graphics are great ballparks and players look very realistic and sharp.

New EA Sports Big Play Control is cool. You get to dive for hit balls and slide into bases. Then after the players will have grass and dirt stains on their jersey and pants making the atmosphere feel real.

Cons: As you can see the 2 pros there are is just about the graphics and sliding and diving. The most cons in the game are of gameplay.

The game is difficult and the worst part is its not one of those where its hard the first day and after that it becomes easy. I've had the game for 2 months and still have it on rookie with user batting,fielding and speed up to 50 and the cpu's all on negative 50 and i STILL lose sometimes. The cpu just bats too well. They always hit grounders in gaps and you get get it then throw it into the base in time.

Also, piching is hard. You have no clue where the ball is gonna go. Example, sliders are supposed to go from one side to another, well my slider went in a whole another direction, it was more like a knucle ball.Have the time you hit the batter and get tossed but it was not even supposed to go near him, but the pitches are unnatural.

Now dont think im a sore looser. I love challenges. And thats what most EA Sports games have. But it is just frustrating to have a 10 run lead in the bottom of the ninth then the comes back and wins. Its possible. It can happen. But it cant happen in every game in real life, but does in this game.

Hopefully, their future versions of this game are better. I wont buy MVP Baseball for a couple years, but I will continue to purchase the other EA Sports games. I do hope the other EA games dont become this hard and fustrating.

Thank you for reading my review.

4-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome Game!!!
Hats off to EA on probably the best baseball game ever made. Graphics are amazing, gameplay is exellent, depth is incredible. You can, play manage and lots more. Any avid baseball fan would love this game. But I do have two gripes. One is that when I created a player, I had to actually negotiate with him to set a salary! It was cool, yet really annoying, because one of the two players I created nearly emptied my bank before he would sign with my team. My main gripe however, is a problem that was present in the 2003 version and is still present in the 2004 version. The hot/cold zone feature has some serious bugs, especially concerning the opposing team when controlled by the cpu. The computer teams batters, just rope the ball in the field for doubles and triples or hit homers. No matter where I threw the ball, it was the same. Makes it hard to enjoy the game when the cpu team is up 8 runs by the 3rd inning every time. But overall it's a truly amazing game, with amazing depth into America's favorite pasttime, Baseball

5-0 out of 5 stars EA SPORTS AT IT'S BEST!
For years I have been a fan of the "All-Star" baseball games. When 2004 came around, I was hoping Acclaim would release All-Star 2005 for Gamecube and they didn't. So I was stuck with All-Star 2004. Then this new game came out called "MVP Baseball 2004" created by EA Sports, which was the game that was to replace All-Star. I finally rented the game because all my friends were bragging about how great the gameplay and graphics are. THEY WERE RIGHT! After 2 days of using the game, I was hooked. I bought my own copy before the rental was even due back.

I started my season with Baseball's greatest team, the NEW YORK YANKEES. I created my player to replace Soriano at 2B. I got my whole bullpen of All-Stars and my ultimate line-up of MLB's greatest players.

Here are the Best Features of the game:

Graphics - The faces, the uniforms, the stadiums, everything looks so real. Every time I play this game on my 36" TV, my parents mistake the game for a real-life Yankee game.

Gameplay - The pitching is unbeatable. The different types of pitches are extremely realistic as to the movement, the spin of the ball and the speed. The cool thing is if you pay close attention in instant replay, you'll notice the spin of the ball goes with the pitch. If the pitch is a curve, the spin is the real-life spin of a curve. The amazes me a lot. The small details like that are cool. The pitching gets a few tries to become an expert at. Also the baserunning and fielding is extremely realistic. The awsome jumps, dives, slides, and flips are utterly amazing. If you see Derek Jeter in action in this game, you'll see what I mean. The hitting does take some time to get used to. You don't have a hitting circle to line up with the ball to hit. It's not too hard to adapt to.

Features - This game features some gameplay modes that no other baseball game features. The first one is Homerun Showdown. Your up against any batter of your choice. The object is hit up to a certain amount of distance total from all your hits before your opponent does. For example, the total distance is 1 Mile. With all the distances of your hits adding up, you have to hit a total of 5,280 feet before the other guy. Be careful. If you hit a foul ball, you total will decrease based on the distance of the foul ball. If you miss a pitch swinging, you lose 100 ft.

The next feature and my personal favorite, the Pitcher's showdown. You can be any pitcher you choose and you pick the pitcher you're up against. You have to get a certain amount of strikeouts against any batter you choose before the computer. If the batter gets a homerun, you lose a strikeout.

There are so many new features in this game I can't even list all of them. This game definitely has All-Star Baseball beat by a mile.

Buy this game and you will find out why EA Sports is the BEST and always will be.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Baseball Game
This is a fun, addicting game which is easy to learn, and continues challenging you through 4 different levels of skill. There are many different modes of play, including Manager Mode (control your team and make game decisions without actually controlling individual players), Dynasty mode, Exhibition, Homerun Showdown and Pitcher showdown. The hitting style is fun and simple. Unlike other games, it is not impossible to make contact. Also, the pitching style of this game is different from other games. It is harder to learn, but gives you more control of your pitcher. Another thing is that all players are edit-able. You can even create players.

Some minor cons: The commentators are dull, repetitive and somtimes frustrating, the music, although good, can get tiring and the ball can disappear in instant replays.

But that shouldn't stop you from buying it! This is the only fun, challenging and realistic baseball game for the Nintendo Gamecube and I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars So much fun and worth the money!!!
Wow. Anyone who likes roleplaying games such as Baldur's Gate or hack n slash such as Hunter: The Reckoning will like Gladius! Only difference is that it is turn based, so you will need to think ahead and figure out how to place your fighters vis a vis the enemy (part of the fun!). I have owned this game for a month and a half and have been ADDICTED. Its a very involved game- you will need to constantly change your character's weapons, armor, etc as they gain levels as well as know how to balance each character's skills and affinities in the school. You don't want too many water affinitiy gladiators, for example. You will also need to keep an eye on your school's money as you buy stuff, enter into battles with entry fees, or recruit new gladiators. Great thing is you can sell your old equipment. The side quests also enrich the gaming experience (gain exotic gladiators or powerful weapons otherwise unavailable). There are different types of battles you face. Some are treasure hunts, others are limited to certain gladiator types, while others are good old melee fun.
But you will need a little patience in the beginning to learn all the nuances of the game. Lucasarts almost always makes great games anyway!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

For the reviewer "the scent from texass", I don't know what platform you're playing on- mine is a gamecube- because 1) tutorials DO NOT last for 3 hours; 2) loading times were NOT AS LONG as other games, and I've played many.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gladius Is Worth The Time!
LucasArts has produced another fine game in Gladius. Its the story of a brother and sister, who are looking for action and adventure. You form and recruit gladiators to your school, and then you power up by winning competitions. The more points you get, the greater your powers become. I've only made it about 1/3 or the way thru, but I love this game. The sound could be a bit better, but the graphics are very detailed. What I love most about this game, is you can either CHOOSE to do tutorials, or you can just skip it. It's not like some games where you have to watch every single cutscene to get to the next fight. You can just skip it if you prefer. You can detail your warrior with different outfits and weapons, and I don't think you'll get too tired of this game. Gameplay is a bit slow, but that's rpg for ya! Something I haven't done yet....yu can morph into a more powerful gladiator, but you have to have mega points to do that. Great gameplay, graphics, and the storyline is solid! This game is a SOLID 4 stars!

1-0 out of 5 stars Even the programming is bad.
I noticed that all of the reviews for this game seemed to be written by sufferers of Down's syndrome. Reviews like "i love it period its good period i love it period" don't really give you much insight into the game. So allow me to. I simply can't grasp how any developer would allow this game to be released. It's so bad, I don't know where to start.

First off, you will spend about three hours "training". Which is absoloutely hysterical, considering the ENTIRE game revolves around a "swing meter" during battle. The meter moves horizontally, and you have to press a button at a certain time. Like Pong!! Basically, the "fun, interactive" part of this game is Pong! You swing your sword, and you hit a button. Another thing is the pace of the game. There is a LOADING screen after every single moment. For ever five minutes you play, the game loads for 30. There is nothing remotely "fun" about the world map. All you do is walk from one thing to another. You might as well have a mouse-pointer.

By far the worst thing about this game is the programming. The most blatantly awful example is the memory card/saving interface. First of all, you can only have three saves. Second, all of those saves are combined in one block so if you need to delete one, you can't. There is a "delete" button in the menu, but I swear to god- It just does not work. I can sit there for hours and hit "delete save" and it just won't do it. Bad programming.

Save yourself time, money, frustation, and bad dreams. Don't ever play this sorry excuse for an RPG.

Gladius rules the world!
I love it period...
this is one of the best games ever period...

this game looks phat man. they have tons of new rappers in it including bubba sparxxx,snoop dogg,busta ryhmes,xzibit and freeway. they also have rappers from the first one like ludacris, method,and redman. i hope they have DMX back(he is my favorite rapper.) even though he's had trouble with def jam lately. they have close to 40 rapppers in this game, while the first one had i think only 12. in this one they have a rapper as the bad guy (snoop dogg) instead of the first one where they had a made up bad guy(d-mob). i know i'm gonna get this when it comes out!

5-0 out of 5 stars Just as good as Halo for xbox! By: A 12 year old!
I have found out that the best systems to get this game on are gamecube and xbox. They will have the same graphics. Ps2 is not as good good on this game as the other consoles. But xbox and Ps2 will have online action plus original multiplayer when you play on the same console. Gamecube won't have online but will have multiplayer. But... Gamecube will have extra weopons and a longer single player mode. Ubisoft said each console with have something special on this game. Gamecube has better single player mode and ps2 and xbox have online. I stronly recomend buying this game for gamecube. I own an xbox and a gamecube so I hope I helped your desision on which console to get it on. So.... GET IT ON GAMECUBE!! ITS THE BEST BEST GAME TO HALO!!

Get this game
This is probably my favorite game right now. Everybody is saying get it for Xbox or gamecube because they have better graphics, and gamecube has an extended single-player mode. But PS2 is equal to them all. The graphics are still awesome, and if you play multiplayer, you won't be going outside for a long time. But, around the middle of the game for a level or two, the game gets a little into the trial-and-error deal. Otherwise, you must get this game no matter what.

5-0 out of 5 stars Xbox VS Gamecube VS PS2
I can't decide what system to get Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow on so I did a system over view on what version to buy. I have Xbox,PS2, and Gamecube so I had many options. The Xbox version is exclusive right now because of a deal with UBI Soft and Microsoft but the other versions are coming this month or maybe early next month. The Xbox version has a multiplayer version along with the PS2 version. The Xbox version we know will look better then the PS2 version but UBI Soft said the Gamecube version and Xbox version will be no diffrent besides the Gamecube version having a longer single player mode. The Gamecube version doesn't have online multiplayer but has extra weapons and a longer single player mode also including the GBA link up which I don't know what it will give you. So the PS2 version is out of here. Now Xbox vs Gamecube. The Gamecube and Xbox versions are already confirmed to look identical and will have no graphic diffrences. Xbox has the multiplayer while the Gamecube has a longer single player mode and more weapons. I will buy James Bond games if I want multiplayer games not Splinter Cell so that leaves me with the Gamecube version. I buy stealth games for single player modes not multiplayer modes so the Gamecube version is the one I would reccomenmd getting. I have my money already saved for this one it's going to be great.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pandora Tomorrow/ The Return
We all know that the port titles of last years Splinter Cell from the Xbox to the Gamecube, and PS2 weren't that great. Well UBI Soft promised that the new title in the Splinter Cell series will be top notch for all consoles. The only bad thing is that the PS2 will slow down the Gamecube, and Xbox versions. But since their going to make every consoles title top notch you wont know what to expect. The PS2 and Xbox versions have online multiplayer support while the Gamecube has a very big add on for single player that the Xbox and PS2 versions wont have. So if you want multiplayer support buy the Xbox version, if you want a better single player mode by far get the Gamecube version. The game we know will be great, heck just look at the screens, there gorgeous. I would reccomend checking this game out and give it a look. I can pretty much say you wont be dissapointed, it is another AAA+ title.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best first person shooter yet
Splinter cell Pandora tomorrow incorporates all the pluses of the original and all the best parts of it are even better. You can do all the moves of the original, plus a few more. The graphics are even better than the first and there are several outdoor missions in which the sun either sets or rises gradually, changing the shadows in which you can hide. Speaking of hiding, there is now an on screen gauge that tells how visible you are to enemy mercenaries.

There is now a unique multi-player that allows you and three others to play each other, X-box and PS2 have it, but I'm not sure about Gamecube. You can play 1 on 3 or 2 on 2; one side are the spies and the other are the mercenaries. Each are evenly matched, but each have different advantages. The spies can see from a third person view allowing them to be more aware of their surroundings while the mercenaries have a first person view allowing them to shoot more accurately, but they can't see behind or to the side of themselves. Each side has their own gadgets and each have their own weapons as well their own objectives, the spies have to complete an objective and the mercenaries have to stop them. The mercenaries have auto-matic weapons that can easily kill a spy but all the spies have are one shot pistols that can only stun an enemy, thus the only way a spy can kill a mercenary is either by jumping on him or breaking his neck. The mercenaries have the advantage in open combat, but their poor vision means that a spy can gain the upper hand with stealth, at least until they're discovered. This means that both sides need different strategies to win. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Number one water racer.
With out any doubt this is the best water racer on any system. This games control is a little bit more difficult to learn then Wave Race 64. The only complaint I have about this game is it could use a few more levels. The graphics are better than any other water racing game because the water is so real life like and clear. You can change the weather from cloudy, rainy, and sunny. Some people might not like the voices because on most of the characters the only thing you hear them say is a bunch of hippie [junk]that becomes irritating to some people. On stunt mode you try to get points by doing stunts inside these blue colored rings, on free roam you get to roam the levels without racing any body, and on championship mode you race other computer controlled simulants across 8 different cources. You can pick up turbo power ups to boast your speed and help pass up racers far ahead of you. There are these arrows pointing on witch side you have to pass that helps make this game hard for some people. Even though I like this game I advise you rent it first and then buy it if you like it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wave race again!!
I recently got to play wave race BS at a cube club and 1 word
explains it all (AMAZING). First of all its the graphics i mean
it the best water effects i have ever seen (yep even better then ps2) sorry owners of ps2 but gcn is much better! The controls are
are great the controller melts into your hands for maximum gaming. The tracks are awsome(kudos) to nitendo for the great idea for diffrent weather idea. The waves are a big improvement they can go from small to waves so high its hard to explain how that tiny (jet Ski) could ride them .
The whole course is graphical splender from the teaming wild life below you to the huge wave swells that you ride. Back to the
weather one day it could be bright and sunny the other day it could be storming. Changing the feel of the course so its never the same. So put it all together and you get a great game. (...)

Really good
This is a game that you just gotta buy! Personally, I hate racing games, but I could go for hours on this game. The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is rockin', and the players are cool. I have a sister and she, my dad and I go head to head all the time. It's a great way to bond, and now my dad isn't as opposed to gamecube. It's so fun, and a person with a wave runner will really enjoy this game. It's sooo realistic! Keep up the good work, Nintendo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome! I actually felt wet playing it!
This game is amazing. I actually felt wet while I was playing it. It has realistic graphics and real problems that you run into while jet-skiing, like large waves, fog, storms, and sun glares. This is a totally amazing game. The only way it could be improved is if they added more courses, but otherwise, they didn't seem to run out of ways to keep me happy! The graphics are great, they look really real, like the water is reflective. This game is amazing. I loved it.

5-0 out of 5 stars This game rocks the house!
If you like to race, this game is a great alternative to all of the road and snow racing games out on the market and is a great addition to any any collection. Wave Race has the best of everthing... customizeable characters, increasing levels of difficulty, awsome graphics, head-to-head racing, varied venues, and easy to use controls. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Bomberman's back, and better than ever
With beautiful cel shaded graphics, some people may be thrown back from this game. Bomberman has never been about realism though and this graphic style suits the game very well. In Bomberman's newest escapade, he must retrieve the powerful bomb elements before a gang of pirates can get to them. Bomberman must travel through many environments using his bombs and Charabombs to find the elements. Charabombs can be compared to Pokemon. They come in different types and can have their stats boosted through collecting items. Once you retrieve one Charabomb, you can use that one to battle against others and recruit them to your team as well. Each Charabomb has a certain ability that benefits you. For example, one Charabomb gives you the ability to throw bombs further, where as another puts your bomb explosions up to full power. You can even go as far as to combine Charabombs to form even more powerful creatures. Between Charabomb raising and level exploration, Bomberman Generations is a fantastic game. Only problem is that Bomberman can have a tendency to get old quickly. Fortunately the great multi-player features compensate for this. Still, the one player adventure can get tedious at times. With great graphics, play control, and music though, the good game design is augmented to make this game stellar.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great multiplayer action! Plus cel-shading.
This game looks to follow in the tradition of previous Bomberman games. Go to a level, complete some very easy puzzles, yada, yada, yada. Thats just the single player though, the fun lies in the multiplayer! You and up to 3 friends battle it out, and last B-Man standing wins! Plus it's got Cel-shaded graphics, which I personally can't get enough of.

2-0 out of 5 stars Just another Bomberman Game
Bomberman Generation is just another bomberman game. More of the same childish graphics, cheap bosses, and sup par multiplayer. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Bomberman for the Gamecube
B.G. is the latest Bomberman gamefor the Gamecube. The graphics aredone quite nicely. The stages get harder as you progress through the game. I was surprised how the bosses get harder to beat in the latter stages of the game. The best thing about this game is the multi-player mode. You and up to 4 buddies can get together and have endless fun. This is a great party game for all ages. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The More the Merrier
Having only a Game Cube and being a long lover of the Final Fantasy series I was greatly anticipating the release of FF:CC and perhaps it was my great expectations that ended up leaving me feeling a little cheated.

FF:CC is a great game with some of the best RPG graphics ive seen come along to date. The game flows smoothly, the sound quality is great, like all FF games it has a engaging soundtrack and, as mentioned earlier, astonding graphics. However I suppose I was looking forward to the traditional FF game. FF:CC isn't like that. It's more of a cross between Secret of Mana (SNES) and Gauntlet: Ledgends (N64).

If you have friends to play this game with its a lot of fun and quite challenging but the single player falls flat. Its far to easy you get the idea that though the backdrop has changed, it's still the same thing over and over again. I'm going to go buy a PS2 this week and play FF-X2.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a good Final Fantasy action RPG
It's about time Square released another Final Fantasy on a Nintendo console. What makes the game so great is that it's an action RPG. These types of games seem to be going out of style on consoles which is bad. In this game you actually have to use more than one button instead of your typical Final Fantasy where you can just hit "x" repeatedly and finish the battle.

The characters look like they belong in a video game and not in an adult video like the current Final Fantasy characters in the PS2 games. They look like old school video game characters. There are a lot of elements in this game taken from the Final Fantasy world that allows Crystal Chronicles to use "Final Fantasy" in the title. However, only people who have been playing Final Fantasy games for years will see that. The 8 year olds who wrote reviews here obviously have no idea what they're talking about.

I don't want to give too much away but I will say some things about the story. You live in a world covered by something called miasma that is deadly to people. However, there are crystals that repel the miasma and people built villages around them. The crystals need their energy replenished every year so villagers send out caravans to retrieve myrrh.

The story isn't very deep but it's better than the usual story found in Final Fantasy games. Which is: someone's dad goes nuts and attempts to destroy the world so you have to go around trying to stop him and then you get an airship. Oh yeah throw in some pathetic love story to create tension. Square if you're listening it's time to hire new writers and character designers.

The graphics are amazing and most screenshots don't do the game justice. The music is also the best I've heard in a final fantasy game in a long time. The controls are also easy to get used to and you should have no problem with the camera.

The single player mode is a little easy and it's just you and a moogle trying to save your town. If you're not anti-social and have friends who own GBAs then you can link up and play multiplayer which is more difficult. It's also more fun because you have to work as a team with your friends. They each have info on their GBA that only they can see. So you have to talk to each other in order to beat enemies and complete the game.

I imported this game because I couldn't wait for it to come out and I'm happy I did. Crystal Chronicles is a nice departure from the boring, repetitive Final Fantasy games that have appeared on the PSone and PS2. The more recent ones have become too reliant on full motion videos in order to increase length of the game. If you enjoy action RPGs and Final Fantasy you'll definitely want to buy this game. There is no better time than to be a GameCube owner. ..... has an impressive line of games and more on the way. If you're a square fanboy and don't own a GC don't cry about it. Buy one and then buy this game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another great FF game
I have had soooooo much fun with this game. Trust me - you want Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles!

3-0 out of 5 stars Some Goods and Bads
Okay. If you're just reading reviews for the GOOD of the game, please move on. Otherwise, keep reading.
I give this game a 3 star rating b/c of this:

Graphics - 5 stars. This can't be beaten! The graphics are awesome!

Music - 5 stars. Great music!

Gameplay - 2 stars. Hey, sorry, but it just ain't worth it! Single player gets mad boring, and if you want some real fun, you gotta be rich, cause mult. player needs GBA for everyone.

Controls - 4 stars. Very easy to get controls! Almost too easy ...

Plot - 2 stars. Personally, the plot sucks. No real plot that gets you goin, like the zelda games or something. But, you might disagree.

Overall - 3 stars. Music and graphics are great. Controls a little lacking. Gameplay and Plot arent the best. But this is just from a person that doesn't have more than one GBA (yes, I have the game, unlike some people's reviews). I'f you do, BUY THIS GAME!!! If you don't DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Besides, it's a lot harder alone, and it's confusing, single player or mult. player.

Happy gaming!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun! For a while.
Good game but it gets old after the 7th year. But if you like doing most things over it's pretty good. Anyway it keep me up on most nights. lol. Overall a really good game! With eception of multiplayer. I mean the batteries die so fast! You pay 4 bucks for one pack and that wont last 2 days! Beside that Awsome game! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wrestling Game Unlike Any Other!
I have seen movie clips from the Japanese version of this game and it is truely the best wrestling game ever. If you are a fan of the Ultimate Muscle cartoon on Fox Box then you must get this game. It features characters from the TV show and uses the same "cell shading" that Zelda uses to make it look like you are actually PLAYING the cartoon. The 3D effects are awesome as you can perform all the moves that the characters do on TV, including Kid Muscle's "Kinniku-Buster". You are not stuck to the ring, you can leap high into the air. There's also a feature that lets you construct your own unique wrestler. This is a game for hours of fun for every kid!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cow and Rice Rule All!!!
This game rocks. You can be all the characters from the show. There are so many modes of play that you just have to keep coming back to play. There is a total of 20 characters which equals 20 different story mode stories. In Super Hero Olympic Mode you can create and edit a wrestler to play in versus and Super Hero modes. How can somebody who likes the show not love kid muscles rendition of the Cow n' Rice song???? Closing thoughts about Ultimate Muscle: If you don't have it buy it. If you do have it buy another copy because this game rules.

the ultimate wrestling game: a review from big qbert
this game is unlike any other wrestling game. i have never seen the show and i love this game and my uncle has seen the show and he loves it too, so this game has been proven to be awesome! there are cel-shaded graphics in this game, you can create up to 40 characters, wrestle in many different rings, you can collect ultimate muscle toys out of the toy machine, play the story mode, do lots of different moves, and even trade you chacters with others! this is the ultimate wrestling game, pick up a copy now!

5-0 out of 5 stars the Ultimate wrestling game!
while this game is not exactly traditional 'pro-wrestling', like WWE, or any of the other wrestling circuits, it's a classic in it's own way! it strays from the 3 count pin rule, for a boxing knock-out, street fighter type of win. with an amazing arcade flavor, that even rivals any game in it's genre for any of the other systems! the sounds are top notch, nice hard smacks, and crowd ambience, and commentators too! this game is based on the anime series of the same name, and not having seen the series, this game is fun, so you don't have to be a fan to appreciate the characters! with whole selection of cool wrestlers, like 'Walrus Man', 'Kid Muscle', 'Chiwawau Man', and many others, plus you can unlock more! A character called 'Meat', throws in power-ups, which can pick up. Graphics are just clean, cel-shaded beauty, the actual gameplay looks like a cartoon! Overall this title is an amazing game for the Nintendo GameCube!!!

This is the Best game ever!!!!!!!!!!
Hey all ya people get this game trust me youl'll like it. the characters the levels the specials and the moves. This game is a slam through the mat. If you by this game go to recruit wreslters and choose Cresent Man. He is so Tight!!! See ive always been lookin for a game that would never get boring. And a wrestling game that's not just all about wrestling. this game is a Wrestling Dragonballz type game. People, dont waste your time rentin it, jus buy it!!!! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Your better-than-average first person shooter game
This came compares largely with Medal of Honor for Gamecube: the controls, framerate, and style all mirror each other. This game puts you in control of a counter-terrorist organization who is responsible for ridding the world of fear, associated with terrorism.

It takes a while to catch onto the controls and setup, but once mastered, this game proves to be a worthy buy.

007 Nightfire (for Gamecube) has more fluid gameplay, but with the trade-off of realism. Rainbow Six's framerate is solid, but less than Nightfire's. The realism; however, is unparalleled. You will not find a more realistic game than this.

This is definitly a game to look into, probably renting first, and later purchasing.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Game Made Greater!!!
Every gaming site gave this game average scores but when you read the review it's only because it wasn't like the old Rainbow games. Well I got to see the game on the Xbox and no it's not like the older Rainbow games it's better. The graphics are Splinter Cell and the same with the sound but more louder. SO if you liked Splinter Cells graphics this will be fine same with sound. Gameplay along with level design is well done. I read the Gamecube version will have more features then the other systems along with levels which makes this the best one to buy. I would reccomend checking this out if you like shooters but if you don't like being in heavy action forget this game because it comes loaded with all the action you would need. Just think of this game and how it looked on the Xbox??? now on the Gamecube. Their will be a major diffrence on the good side. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great evolution of the arcade series!
Virtua Striker was the pioneering arcade 3D soccer game. While its arcade-style gameplay hasn't been a favorite of the die-hard sim nuts, it has never failed to keep me entertained.

This latest version of Virtua Striker goes a long way towards being a great all-around soccer experience. The classic arcade feel is still very much intact, although the controls and player movement has been refined quite nicely.

What really makes this game cool is the "Road to International Cup" mode, which lets you raise a team from scrubs to champs. It's a lot like the World Tour mode in Tennis 2K2, where you gain experience and work with schedules. It's always fun to have full control over your team, and this mode does a great job at that.

So, if you like the arcade-style play of the VS series, you won't be disappointed with Virtua Striker 2002.

5-0 out of 5 stars Looking forward to playing this great soccer game...
I can't wait to get this game. After playing this series on other systems, I can attest that this game is one of the best soccer games available. I'm sure that Sega will do an awesome job for the Cube, making this the best one yet!

1-0 out of 5 stars Virtual Striker 2002
This game [bite] its the worst game ive ever played the grafics [are horrible] and the way the game is set up for u to play if so dumb u should not play or buy this game it is so horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Soccer to the max!
You get Awesome visuals, 64 Countries to play with, 1400 selectable athletes, 13 Large and Extremely detailed statiums, lots of modes like Road to World Cup, Tournament and Versus Match, and plus, 1-4 players!

Virtua Striker 3 v.2002 on the GameCube will retain the DNA of the past Virtua Strikers in the series but will hopefully attempt to improve up the awkward controls of its predecessors. The game at this point in its development doesn't seem to improve up the controls of its previous efforts. The controls feel loose and fail to live to walk side by side with the games incredible visuals. Where Amusement Vision has impressed however is in the facade of the title. Going into a football game has never felt so intimidating in a soccer title before, with the impressive size of the well animated crowd barring down upon you and the usual pomp and National anthems associated with games of this sort.

All the usual modes are included in this game, from a versus mode to a decent tournament mode. However we'll get to that later because the most important inclusion in Virtua Striker 3 v.2002 is a Road to the World cup mode. Within this mode players willl have to choose from one country from a pool of 64 and take that said country through to the world cup. The task isn't as that though, there's years left for you to play in the game. That's right, I said years. In the Road to World Cup mode the player must increase their teams abilities over a period of four years playing through preliminary matches, a group league and then search for glory in the final tournament. The team that the player builds during this mode can be used in any of the other modes in the game as well. Now you can finally pay back some of the teams that trounced you in the past with a carefully nurtured dream team.

The other modes are standard soccer fare and shouldn't really throw up any surprises. International Cup is the same mode you'll see in any other soccer title you pick up in your local [retail store]. Pick one International team duke it out against 32 other teams for the International Cup (it wishes it was the world cup). Four groups of eight teams battle through to the last eight before the showdown between the final two challengingers. The next mode is a little more interesting though. The Tournament mode involes choosing your team to go into a tournament against four, eight or sixteen other countries. League mode is obvious. A league of either four, sixteen or thirty-two countries and challenge each other home and away. What is not so obvious is the fact that points are awarded for playing style which is an interesting little addition to spice up the mundane league mode (especially without real player names). Among the plethora of modes is Ranking mode which allows players to play against up to four cpu controlled teams. The results of the matches are then analyzed and you are given a rank. Finally there is your standard versus mode where you can go up against your friends as each of your repectd countries and let the dissing commence.

Virtua Striker 3 v.2002 also features a create-player mode as well as editing abilities allowing fully customiseable football freaks or superhumans depending on your editing abilities. The game allows almost anything in site to be edited. Player names, uniforms, formations and even full teams can be created along with the kit color.

The place in which the game really shines however is in the visual department. The stadiums are massive and contain the best itteration of a crowd since... well ever. The player models are extreemlly detailed and animate wonderfully. The GameCube doesn't have any problems drawing these high detail polygon models at 60fps. Detailed texturing and shadows add to the realism of the experience while incidental details such as grass blades ripping out the ground at every twist and turn. Finally a beautifully rendered sky and accurate uniforms will have you double checking you tv screens.

Virtua Striker 3 v.2002 will arrive at a time when Fifa 2002 will have infitrated many home and ISS2 will be breathing down it's neck. The great aspect of it though is that the title should retain it's arcade roots and this may act as another advantage for the title. While others attempt imitate soccer right to the formations of actual managers Virtua Striker 3 for the GameCube looks to distance itself from the others with simplistic arcadey gameplay.

Graphics, great! I can't belive they could do so good with it! 10/10
Fun, this game sounds fun, but I think it could get boring after a while. Even with World Cup. 8/10
Gameplay, as I said, I think it could get boring after hitting the ball 50 times, 8/10
Sound, no word on Sound yet, I'm making a guess. 9/10
