The Adventures of Gilligan’s Island

The game instead has the Skipper as the central character with Gilligan as your sidekick. You basically walk across the jungle looking for the other castaways. On the way the duo are attacked by birds...

Diddy Kong Racing

It featured a similar set-up to Mario Kart, with racing through colorful themed tracks with power-ups to use. The cast didn't feature Diddy Kong's famous uncle, but original characters. Most notable ...

The Simpsons Wrestling

The game features a similar set-up to other 3D wrestlers, but with the addition of power-ups such as donuts to make you faster. It also featured original dialogue from the cast of the show, and many ...

Metal Gear Solid 4

The game takes place five years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 2, with most of the world in some type of war or conflict. Snake is taken out of retirement for one last mission. He arrives in th...

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

Like Mario Kart, Transformed is a simple go-kart (sorta) racer with power-ups that either help you or slow down your opponents. While I wasn't terribly familiar with the original, I can tell the new ...

New Super Mario Bros. Wii

Don't get me wrong, I did like the first game but I loved New Super Bros. Wii. It had such a variety of levels, proved to be a challenge in the later levels (though not terribly difficult), and had le...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

The game was generally the same as Melee with the layout and moves. They did recreate the adventure mode with a story and impressive cut-scenes. Though I did miss the Adventure Mode of Melee, as I th...

Zelda: Skyward Sword

I also really liked how the story was the ultimate prequel to the series. There was no Ganon, Zelda isn't a princess, and there is no Kingdom of Hyrule yet. The story was fresh and the main villain fo...

Kid Icarus: Uprising

The non-flight sections are almost like Zelda meets Metroid Prime. Pit can travel around dungeons and castles with plenty of secrets. At the same time defeating enemies and bosses with different strat...

Phantasy Star Online

The game later came out with different editions like a 2nd version with new content on Dreamcast. After the "death" of the Dreamcast, Sega ported an enhanced version on Nintendo Gamecube. There was al...

Mega Man Legends

The game was not a traditional platformer but instead a 3D action-adventure. Imagine Metroid meets Ocarina of Time with walking/movement akin to Resident Evil, and you sort of get the picture. You tra...

The Castlevania Adventure

It was pretty much the same deal as the original game on NES with a few differences. Like the absence of sub-weapons, and hearts actually restored your life which finally makes sense. You could upgra...

Sonic Heroes

The game also made use of Sonic's friends and enemies being forced upon the player. You can pick between four teams of three. So you had the good team (Sonic, Tails Knuckles), the evil team (Shadow, R...

Elf Bolwing 1 & 2

Back in the early days of the Nintendo DS, Elf Bowling 1 & 2 was released. I had no idea the series had a decent amount of popularity on PC. However that wasn't enough to convince me to get this stran...

Batman

Since it was based on the movie, there were plenty of impressive (for NES anyway) cut-scenes featuring key moments of the movie and some just for the game. Except the plot of the game is shortened to...

State of Emergency

While GTA gave you the freedom to do anything, you're limited by a good bit in State of Emergency. There's two modes and frankly their both boxed-in areas where you rack up points by taking down polic...

John Madden Football

There is one fatal flaw with the game, and that's the technical limitations of the SNES. The framer ate does not run smooth which really effects gameplay when you're in a heated moment. Also when you ...

Donkey Kong Jr.

The game plays remarkable similar to the original, yet with a new twist. Instead of being a short Italian dude with concrete shoes, you're a monkey that can barely jump but can grab hold of vines, rop...

Resident Evil Gaiden

While Capcom canned the Gameboy Color remake of the the original game, that didn't stop them from developing on the system completely. They made a "kiddie" version of Resident Evil for the GBC near th...

Apple Bandai Pippin

Yes Apple was into gaming (besides Macs) long before the iPhone. They teamed up with Bandai to make a console of their own, the Apple Bandai Pippin....

Tetris 2

There's also a decent puzzle mode added for those want a real challenge. Despite all that, it's not going to rival the original to almost any player. It's a decent puzzle game, and I could see people ...

Capcom Vs. SNK: Pro

It's basically what you would expect from Capcom in the past 15 years. Since I already played the 2nd game to death, I was a tad unthrilled at the offerings on the table. I was also mad that they didn...

Double Dragon II: The Revenge

The combat is also a lot faster and smoother than the first NES game. They also have a decent control set-up where one button hits/kicks opponents on one side, and the other button takes care of the o...

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance

I really liked the magic system in this game. Different elements that could be combine with the traditional weapons of Castlevania fame. Could also be tinkered to make some super blasts and powers. It...

Frogger’s Adventures: The Rescue

Frogger has had many re-releases, remakes, and reboots over the years. This is a more modern take, and it's very kid friendly. Well at least graphically and story wise. The game-play is a bit old-scho...

NES Baseball

The problem with the game are really three things. The first is the speed of the game, it really goes far too slow for it's own good. The second are the controls which aren't so hot when you're trying...

Yoshi’s Island DS

This was a really surprise sequel Nintendo came up with. Yoshi's Story was a failure and a joke of a game. This however wasn't bad at all. ...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

Despite a lot of recycled graphics, Majora's Mask is one of the most unique Zelda games ever. It's dark, weird, has aliens, and is about the end of the world. Not exactly a typical adventure in Hyrule...

Soul Calibur II

That reason was because Link from the Legend of Zelda was a playable character. Spawn was in the Xbox version while Heihachi from Tekken was in the PS2 version. I remember some fanboys of the other tw...

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door

The second Paper Mario game has an epically long quest with lots of quirky humor (there's a tranny ghost who has a crush on Mario; I'm completely serious), and interesting characters. Be warned that t...

Resident Evil (GameCube)

I think my favorite part was the crimson head zombies. The regular zombie was no longer a threat, so after a few easy 9mm caps in their butts they go down easy. However after some time, the zombies re...

Halo 2

Halo 2 was a big jump up in graphics from the first game, and they did add a lot of new stuff like dual wielding and energy swords now. The single player was enjoyable but kinda left you half empty. I...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

The combat was probably the weakest thing about KOTOR, which isn't probably a bad thing when the quest was so long, the characters so memorable, and a story that dragged on you for the ride. Republic ...

Ninja Gaiden

I think my main deal with GoW or DMC is really just the combat. I think they are a bit too slow and sluggish and the enemies seem to take too much of a punch for no reason. With Ninja Gaiden, enemies ...

Jade Empire

The combat is much different than KOTOR giving it more an action kind of feel. It's good, but it had it's flaws, though if they did make a sequel I think they could of fixed and tweaked all their mist...

Fable

Despite falling from the near-perfect tier of first party games, Fable is still one of my favorite games on the Xbox. Not too overly complicated, and the choice system was impressive for the time. I w...

Half-Life 2

Half-life 2 is a fun and impressive game, with such variety and diversity in the enemies and levels. I think my favorite level was Ravenholm since it had that perfect Halloween spooky feel to it, and ...

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath

I think the game's only big fault is that the difficulty is a bit bi-polar. It doesn't gradually goes up, one moment its okay, and then bam you get hit with an almost impossible challenge. I would pro...

Star Wars: Battlefront II

The multi-player had it's problems, but it was a blast. Being a Jedi, or Sith made you feel over-powered, but you had to earn it, and it was a real challenge to beat one of the juggernauts. The conne...

Call of Duty: Finest Hour

I think my favorite catch to this game, is that it goes to all major sides to the Eastern front. You take control of Soviet, American, and British troops. All them have their memorable moments, weapon...

Panzer Dragoon Orta

With little question or doubt either. It was easily the best looking PD so far, and it expanded the gameplay with 3 wing forms which could make you faster, or stronger, better shots, etc. The bosses w...

What’s Your Favorite Metal Gear game?

Mine would be MGS3: Snake Eater. It perfected the classic MGS gameplay, and the new jungle and desert scenes with the new camo gave it a whole new level of stealth to use. The story was great and made...
