5.0 out of 5 stars Goldeneye? Dump it!, 29 Jan. 2003
After years of below par attempts the N64 classic is finally beaten, but only by some of the folk behind the original. After Goldeneye a group split from Rare and formed Free Radical who produced TimeSplitters on PS2. The singleplayer was short lived but the multiplayer was unrivalled.
This time the GC gets TimeSplitters 2 as well as PS2 and X-Box but the GC pad makes this version more fun than any other. The singleplayer has taken it's roots from Goldeneye(sniper rifle at the start of the dam? Familar?) and it's better than any other shooter available.
There is a huge amount of extra's to unlock including over 100 characters, challenges, cheats, levels and even classic TimeSplitters levels! There are tons of modes like Flame Tag, Virus, Deathmatch and the hilarius Monkey Assist.
The Mapmaker is hugely improved upon allowing you to make huge multiplayer levels and for the first time your own story levels too!
There is so much hidden away in this game that this will become the game that shooters are compaired to, not Goldeneye and the only shooter that could beat this would be Perfect Dark Zero(X-Box 2004+) or more likely TimeSplitters 3, can't wait now can you! This is fantastic in Multiplayer and great alone so no matter who you are, GET THIS!
The graphics are very stylish and have the style of the period of time right. The sounds are great and the guns don't sound like they are firing popcorn(aka Agent under Fire). Travelling through time hunting crystals has never been so much fun.... magic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Smash Bros Melee!, 17 Jan. 2003
This game is the reason you must have a Gamecube. SSBM will keep you up for nights before you realise what time it is. The singleplayer mode is much improved on with Classic, All-Star, Adventure, Events and VS. Classic is 10 battles against characters with 2on2, team battle and the return of the master hand. All-Star is a battle against every character in the game and a good many Mr Game and Watches. Adventure is exactly what it suggests, and adventure but through characters worlds such as the mushroom kingdom, great stuff! There are 51 unique events to fight through and endless fun in VS against CPU or your mates. With 25 characters and 29 levels this is HUGE! On top of that there s the stadium with the home-run contest, practise and Melee! There are 280+ trophies of Nintendo's history to collect and data fans will have a field trip. Every option can be tweaked and the fight stats come up afterwards. The credits are original as you can 'shoot' the names to get more detailed information on the makers. I could go on forever as this game is huge, if you don't own it yet what ARE you doing! Get it or miss out, teribbly. This is how multiplayer games should be. The graphics are fast and amazingly detailed, the sound is fantastic with speach and loads of FX. The games really strong point is it's lifespan, play this and never leave the room, unless to go to the telephone to ring up some mates to come round. This game has no bad points, HAL have done very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The name's Bond... James Bond!, 14 Jan. 2003
This game gives you the feeling you are 007 right from the word GO. It is far better than the rubbish Agent under Fire and the makers have done themselves proud. The singleplayer is cool and the levels are long and full of action. The driving levels are shorter but great fun. Unfortunatly they have kept the on-rails levels giving you no freedom. The game is quality but untill you have player Multiplayer you have not lived. MI6 won't play aginst each other so offering a lack of characters and there aren't many to begin with. But start a game and you won't be dissapointed, the many modes are fun to play and the action is fast and fun, saying that there are times when the game slows down and becomes annoying but if you are after a good 007 game this is it, just don't expect Goldeneye or N64 World is not Enough though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mario SunShine! Does it shine?, 14 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Super Mario Sunshine (Video Game)
After ages without a Mario Game we finally get one but it is not as good as Mario 64 was when that was released, this will dissapoint fans as it's basically a different Mario 64, nothing much new. However FLUDD and Yoshi liven the game up but not much. FLUDD can get annoying and you don't get Yoshi untill later. It is also VERY short. Rent it for a weekend, you'll complete it and not want it again. However untill you complete it this game is magic and you will love it, shame it isn't anything new and not a bit longer. It is worth a look though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario Multiplayer Mahem!, 14 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Mario Party 4 (Video Game)
All games are sopposed to be fun but this pushes aside all other competition easily. Mario Party is fun by yourself but get some mates round and you'll play for months. The mini-games are a riot and there isn't any really bad ones. Some mini-games are so fun they should be illegal. Dungeon Duos and Goal!!! are some of the best examples of fun mini-games. Some games can last for ages and the GC pad will have to be surgically removed before you go to bed. This is a game that no-one should be without, get it or miss out.

3.0 out of 5 stars StarFox Adventures, 13 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Star Fox Adventures (Video Game)
Taking 3 years to complete this should have been the best game to grace the GameCube. From turning on the game looks the buisness. The graphics are superb and the surround sound really adds more life to the scenary. The animation is great but this is where the best of the game is. The game's story is OK when you get used to talking to dinosaurs and the planet is fully explorable. But saying this some parts can confuse and get you wandering around aimlessly trying to find something you don't have a clue if it even exists. Slippy can help but he mostly babbles on. The Arwing levels are magic though. Traveling to different area's in the Arwing is fun and just like the old games. Tha last boss is brilliant but I won't spoil it for you. The bosses are huge and although not original they are still fun. The lack of Multiplayer is really dissapointing and Zelda fans will be left wanting more in terms of RPG. Rare's last game could be better but If you love Zelda or Fox then get this, otherwise loan it and try it first. You'll ether love it, or hate it.

This review is from: Star Fox Adventures (Video Game)
StarFox may be Rare's last game for GameCube but it isn't worth the 3 years spent on it. There are superb graphics but that doesn't make up for the endless backtracking and searching. The combat becomes boring and Prince Tricky is more annoying than helpful. The flying sections are OK and the bosses are good, the last boss isn't really anything new though. If your after a long Zelda type game then this will not satisfy. If this is your thing then get in it but it lacks challenge. Rent it first.
