Star Fox Command (Nintendo DS)
Star Fox Command (Nintendo DS)

4.0 out of 5 stars Not lylat wars DS..., 11 Feb. 2007
When you get the game, remember this, it is not lylat wars DS. In fact forget the whole thing is star fox, and leave your mind open to the new ideas it brings. The strategy elements suits the Star fox series really well, and the stylus control is near perfect. The online dogfights are pretty cool, and is so much fun I play I almost forgot to check up on my Animal Crossing town. The main game is pretty decent, although rock hard and really short. The graphics are impressive, some of the best the DS has seen. The fights aren't too bad, but the computer is very good, providing a challenge but making it a bit more boring.

Overall the expierience is good, but not astounding or ground breaking as past Star foxes' were. Worth a week of playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tetris... what more can i say, 7 Feb. 2007
Blocks fall from the sky, and you must slot them into gaps. You make a chain of 99 lines, going for the killer 100 total, but lose concentration and end up failing at the final hurdle.

I am talking about tetris, the game which almost made people tear out their eyes in '89, has come back to haunt them on DS. The content of the main game is virtually the same, except for some lovely graphical effects. You see, you still try to clear lines, but whilst you're doing this, you can see some cool 8-bit nintendo memorabilia. Link, Samus and of course Mario are all along for the ride.

And the main game got longer as well. With new modes and being able to get up to 999 lines, the action never stops. And Nintendo have added new modes as well, which all work well, and are a handy get-away from the original action. Push is the least addictive of the bunch, however it would have worked brilliantly in 2-player, what with you pushing a block onto your opponents screen. Mission gives a task for you to do,fairly easy I must say. Puzzle is great, and soon you'll be using your brain more than Dr Kawashima. Catch is annoying at first, but once you get your head around it, it can be a hidden gem. But the extra fun to be had is in touch, were you have to move existing blocks into lines.

Once you get this, you'll be screaming like you did in '89. You'll find a tactic, then the game will crush it, forcing you to go back to the drawing board. With original tetris to look forward to, and some time-consuming extras you'll love this game. Trust me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun at a gastronomical price, 6 Jan. 2007
It is classic zelda. Fun, with good puzzles and a super storyline, they are all the backbone of a great zelda game. That is why I hated Wind waker and Legend of zelda II. They had no great puzzles. They both had awful storylines. This is a return to the solidarity of Link to the past. Every time you complete a dungeon, you feel like you've achieved something, like you've won, like you've beat the unbeatable. That is how a zelda game should play. All the fantastic zelda's have made you feel like this. Twilight princess, link to the past, the original and not forgetting majora's mask and the almighty ocarina of time. Four swords is no different. In single player there is a good accuracy, what with you having to control 4 characters, you'd think it would be fiddly, but it isn't. But multi-player is where it is at. Although a set up with 4 GBA's, 4 link cables, a copy of the game and a gamecube is very,very pricey, it is the proper way to play and if you manage to set it up and then gather 3 friends you could be having shed loads of fun. And it is fun. You can watch as your mate falls down a hole, laugh, and then nick all his money that he dropped. It super fun if you can set it up. Overall, you should buy this. Or you could get 4 copies of link to the past and play 4 swords on there. Either way four swords is worth playing at least once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 6 Jan. 2007
The card doesn't do much. You transfer the points from the card to your wii. That's all. That is everything this card does and ever will do. But it is what you can get with the points that is brilliant. You can download Nintendo games from the NES, the SNES and the N64, plus you can get megadrive games and turbographx games. At the moment the selection of games is not great, but later in 2007 we will see things like smash bros and mario party become available for download. It is also rumoured that nintendo may let small developers make games for downloading! How good is that!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book, 6 Jan. 2007
I don't read much but when I do I read a magazine or this. I love to prove people wrong with it and some of the questions in it sound really obvious, but then it tells you the correct answer, and you think 'oh I get it now!'.

Here's one. How many moons does the earth have? It is obviously 1, right? Wrong. The Earth has at least seven. How many planets in the galaxy? 9 you say? Wrong again. The answer is eight, because in no way is pluto a planet. What you think you know is wrong. It is also funny, because it has a foreword by Stephen Fry, which is about 5 pages long, and then you get four words from Alan Davies that say 'will this do Stephen?'. Brilliant book. Get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not an essential purchase, 4 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Meteos (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I got this after reading countless reviews saying it was wonderful. It wasn't. It uses the DS well, and the graphics are tidy and really quite good in all honesty. My problem is I thought it was going to be as good as tetris DS. And it wasn't. It really isn't addictive and is frustrating even when it is suppose to be easy, like near the start. However I would recommend it if you could get it cheaply.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mario 64 rival!, 4 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Banjo-Kazooie (N64) (Video Game)
The N64 needed no more platformers. Mario 64 sat on top of the pile, with nobody to challenge its greatness - until this came out. It had good graphics and superb storyline, the controls always felt perfect and to round it off it had more puzzles than Mario 64. In platformers I love puzzles and was extremely happy to find this had them in abundance. It really is a cracking game, and nowadays if you route out your old N64 you can get this game for pennies. If you love Mario 64 you WILL love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid game, 4 Jan. 2007
Mario has been around a while, and has starred in some ace games, such as the brilliant Mario 64. Mario 64 set the standard for all platformers to be at if they were truly great. Mario Sunshine is a great game but does not have the qualities to match the awesome Mario 64. This is probably the first mario game with a 'gimmick'. FLUDD is a back pack which mario wears and can spray water. This adds some new puzzle elements to the game, but also takes some away. For instance FLUDD can be used to clear away mud, whereas in Mario 64 this was imposible. However, now Mario can use FLUDD to cross big gaps, whereas in Mario 64, Mario would have to find a switch to make platforms appear. It swings in roundabouts. But what I first noticed about the game was the graphics. These are the most beautiful graphics on the GC. Overall i like this game. It is not more of the same. Which is is good and bad points. I still recommend it highly

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game ever made, 3 Jan. 2007
I remember when I first stepped onto the plains of hyrule field, the glorious 3d grabbed my heart and stuck it inside a small cartridge. But I had to ignore it and stick to my job which was to find Zelda. Sword in hand I raced up to Hyrule castle as fast as Link's legs would carry him, fighting some enemies along the way.

Ocarina was the turning point in games. Nothing could be truly perfect unless it could beat this. This used the N64 to it's fullest and turned the n64 into the must have console over the Playstation. This was brilliant. Dungeons had clever puzzles and enemies galore. There was always something that hooked you. I loved it when I was younger and i still love it today. The gamers game.

11/10

I never turn down a chance to play a zelda game. This is the best handheld zelda ever. A unique game, with clever puzzles, lots to see, do and collect. There are many mysteries to unravel, and the new items are top notch. Not as good as any of the 3d zeldas but hey, every GBA owner should own this.
