4.0 out of 5 stars Small but as good as ever!, 22 Feb. 2006
The game-boy advance was great portable fun,then along came the Game Boy Advance SP with new features such as a flip-up screen and a back-lit screen,and now here it is "The Game Boy Micro".The new features includes:interchangeable front covers like a mobile phone,brighter screen,it's as small as a packet of chewing-gum,really light and it plays all Game-Boy Advance games too!The only bad bit is that some people with big hands might not be able to play it because it's so tiny.Plus it's so small that it's very easily lost.A must buy for gaming on the go.
Good bits:
*More portable
*Interchangable front covers
Bad bits:
*Too small for people with big hands!
*Can get lost very easily!

4.0 out of 5 stars A NES classic indeed!, 22 Feb. 2006
Super Mario Bros was a ground-breaking game in it's time, but how does a game like Super Mario Bros,a 2D side-scrolling game stand the test of time against something 3D like Ratchat and Clank?Yes it does!People who have played and finished this game will not find anything new here because it's a direct port from the NES game.However,people who havn't played it will love it!This is a piece of videogaming genius,one of Nintendo's most fantastic games.A must own portable version of the classic if you don't already own it.Ninendo could have at least included a few more levles for fans of the original.You can not call yourself a true Nintendo fan if you have'nt completed this game at least once.
Good bits:
*Good as ever
*Multiplayer with one cart
*You'll play it again and again
Bad bits:
*Nothing new for people who've already played the original game on the NES

5.0 out of 5 stars A Colossul Game!, 19 Feb. 2006
A young hero with a noble stead travels far and wide to bring a young dead woman to a shrine and places her on an alter.Suddenly dark spirits rise from the ground.The man holds out his sword and the spirits dissapear.A voice from above starts talking to the man and says "That is a powerful sword you wield.What is it that you want from me?" The man replies "I want you to raise this fair young woman from the dead." "Doing that is not an easy task!" replies the voice. "Kill the anchient Collosi and I shall see what I can do!" So the voice gives man a briefing on the first Collosi he most kill.After that the man sets off on his journey through a free roam world to kill all seventeen Collosi.In the game you won't encounter any enemies just Collosi.The collosi are giant half-beast half-robot creatures that roam the world.To find these huge beasts can be a task in such a huge world.luckily you'r equiped with a magic sword.So when you hold your sword out in front of you in sunlight a magic beam shows you where the Collosi you'r looking for is.After traveling for a while I finaly found the first Collosi.It was massive!How was I supposed to kill a beast the size of a skyscraper!I finaly found out how.But I won't spoil how you kill him, that's the best bit(Beside killing it!)After killing it I felt sorry for it!I did'nt seem like it was doing anybody any harm!(Besides me)After killing it I got teleported back to the shrine and givin an option to save,so I did!Great atmosphoric music,fantastic graphics and brilliant box art make this game simply great!One of my favourite games ever!
Good Points:
*Atmospheric Music
Bad Points:
*No multiplayer
*Not long enough

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't stop the beat!, 15 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Lumines (PSP) (Video Game)
When I first played this game I did'nt know what to think.But after a while I began to tap my feet to the music, and before I knew it I was hooked!Lumines is a game very similer to Tetris.Blocks fall and you have to join a colour up into a group of four.A line passes over and makes the groups dissapear.The graphics are vivid and and bright and the music will keep you tapping your feet for weeks.The WI-FI multiplayer is excellent and will encourage you to make more friends,just so you can invite them over for a game of Lumines!Whenever you lose you'll keep coming back for more.You need this game in your life, especially if you like music.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Mario,we've got a star on our hands!", 15 Feb. 2006
Mario 64 was a classic game and now it's being re-released on the Nintendo DS!Has it improved?Yes!And now it's bigger and better than ever before!Improved graphics,more stars to collect,WI-FI multi-player and great unlockable minigames!The story has'nt changed(Thank god!)and Mario and his friends sill have the same charming personalities as before.The only issue is the controls.The stylus control is terrible and the D-pad is O.K.But minor flaws aside this is a near flawless game.Another hit game from Mario and all the gang!

5.0 out of 5 stars Minigame Mania, 15 Feb. 2006
Wario Ware:Touched is a game full of colourful minigames.The control system is amazing,for some games you'll have to use your stylus to slice up things,for others you'll have to rub a genie lamp!The graphics are nice and colourful but sometimes can make your eyes strain.This is a game intended for short pick-up and play sessions,however hardcore gamers can be challenged for there are over 200 minigames.Very good and fun for all the family.A must have game!
