Mario Power Tennis

Next to jumping on the many enemies in the Mario-platform games, our friendly, fat, plumber also does some sport. Think Mario Kart: Double Dash!!, Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour and new also the latest new branch in the sport series, Mario Power Tennis. The latter is the subject of this review. The Nintendo64 version got high […]

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

The connectivity between Gamecube and GBA hasn’t really been used up until now. Final Fantasy Chronicles already gave you a taste of what could be done, and also Pokémon Colosseum had some use for it but wasn’t really used in-depth. Next to that, there were a couple of games where you would need both the […]

Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

Back in the days of the 2D-age, Donkey Kong was one of the most well-known game characters. Together with his friends he would go out on typically 2D-sidescrolling platform adventures and whoever dares to deny these were super cool is a total idiot. The first announced Cube game featuring Donkey Kong was Donkey Konga (not […]

Call of Duty: Finest Hour

I kinda like movies and games that dwell in a WW2 atmosphere. The movie-like storylines and the thought that soldiers have really had to go through all these fights 60 years ago intrigue me and drag me completely into the game. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault was in my opinion a game that succeed with […]

Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

Metroid Prime is still seen by many people as one of the finest games on the Nintendo Gamecube. It was the first 3D-Metroid game, after a series of 2D-games on the NES, the SNES and the GBA. Now Nintendo has, in co-operation with Retro Studios, finished Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and it’s my job to […]

Tales Of Symphonia

Console RPGs seldomly come with something truly innovative or surprising. Just get one male teenager with blonde, pointy hair, an oversized sword and a female side-kick to help him during difficult times. Big, shiny eyes, loads of magic and a story about the end of the world usually do the trick. Tales of Symphonia does […]

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

The Nintendo64 title Paper Mario appeared in Europe in the last years of this console and since most people had already focused on the Gamecube that was arising at the horizon, the game didn’t really sell well. Too bad as unique graphics, a fun battle system and a chunk of humour made this title a […]

Pikmin 2

Quizmaster: “What’s the word we’re looking for? It’s small, vegetable, and comes in red, yellow, purple, white and blue flavours.” 1st candidate: “XTC-tablets!” Quizmaster: “Riiiiiight… I mean wrong” 2nd candidate: “Fruit-flavoured condoms?” Quizmaster: “Wrong answer.” 3rd candidate: “Bubblegum?” Quizmaster: “Jezus, you guys suck! It’s Pikmin of course!” Those tiny lifeforms make their second appearance on […]

Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing isn’t actually a new game. About two years ago it appeared in Japan and the US where it sold incredibly well. Fans demanded a European version but always got to hear the excuse that it would take too long to translate. Pretty strange, seeing that the only available language in the game is […]

Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Party Game$

Wario Ware, Inc.: Mega Party Game$ is one strange game. Some time ago it was already released on the GBA under the name WarioWare Inc.: Mega MicroGame$ which got quite some positive reviews. The only difference between the two titles is the word ‘party’ instead of ‘micro’. It’s no coincidence that this is also the […]

Pokemon Colosseum

I remember well my first experiences with Pokémon, Pokémon Blue that was. The evening I had bought it I should have gone to music school but because I found it so exciting to to catch my first pokemon I didn’t go. Then I was still a fanatic, I watched the cartoons every day eventhough I […]

Spider-man 2

Spider-Man exists longer than today, everybody knows that. The spider that saves the world first appeared in comic books after which a cartoon series was made for TV. Of course, movies can’t be left out with a popular character and recently a second one was released. It’s starting to become a habbit, each big movie […]

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

Only two games have my utter respect, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy. Too bad (for me that is) those two games are each released on a different platform. When I saw the first footage of the firstnamed game’s remake, I chose the GameCube as my platform. The lil’ cube maybe gives me lots of joy, […]

R: Racing

Ridge Racer used to be a rather succesful arcade racer on the Playstation 1 but when Ridge Racer 5 became an utter failure on Playstation 2, Namco kinda dropped the series. They had a new idea: “If arcade-racing doesn’t sell anymore, we’ll make a realistic racing game!” and thus R: Racing was born. However, with […]

Sonic Heroes

Remember those old 2D Sonic games from the old days ? Those contained speed while the first versions of the 3D games were horribly slow which made them a lot less popular. Sega wanted to make up and bring us a 3D game with some fast-paced action. After a night of brainstorming they ended up […]
