The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

After beating through Oracle of Seasons, I knew I had to have the sister game Oracle of Ages. I wanted to find out the whole story, and what had led to the faeries kidnapping. There is a big difference in the 2 games, even though the style is identical.

Kirby's Block Ball (Game Boy)

Kirby's Block Ball review (GB)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Archanoid was a game that dominated the NES for addictive puzzle gameplay. Kirby's Blockball took that same game, created some masters and put everyones star puffball in it, and created one of the classics for the Gameboy.

Arkanoid (NES)

Arkanoid review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

This is the most addictive, most entertaining puzzle game ever made. It is better than the modernday puzzle games, and nothing is even close. Arkanoid is a great game that I fell in love with, and found myself playing night after night for around an hour. Pretty good for a game I can only make it to the 3rd level on.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

With almost every system I jumped on the Zelda games as soon as they came out, except for the gameboy color. The two Oracle games I waited awhile on, until I finally bought Oracle of Seasons. I expected a cheaply made game, just to bring in money for Nintendo. I should've known that Miyomoto would not hurt his own game series just for some quick money, and I found this game definitely enjoyable.

Castlevania (Nintendo 64)

Castlevania review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Castlevania 64 changed the way the Castlevania series worked, with its 3D enviroment. Some people did not like the change in graphics but it gave a new feel to the series. Castlevania 64 is derived from the classic games, and it should definitely stand tall with those past games.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (NES)

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

After Castlevania's success it was obvious a sequel would be made. Like Zelda though, the sequel was much different from the first, and not near as good. Instead of the simple sidescroller with enemies at every turn, and no complex puzzles Castlevania II weakens the enemies, and makes it so there are puzzles to solve, and many different ruotes to go. This is not really what Castlevania is supposed to be.

Final Fantasy X (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

When a game series makes the jump to one generation to the next, you expect certain things. The jump to the NES to the SNES gave square more freedom to tell a story with more lines of text and better quality music. With the PSX you where immersed in computer generated movies. But some would argue that while technology got better, then gameplay suffered. That’s a matter of opinion I suppose. But the change from the PSX to the PS2 is just a significant as the ones preceding it.

FIFA Soccer 2002 (GameCube)

FIFA Soccer 2002 review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I got this game because there were really no good games coming out with the cube, so I thought that this game had the potential to be good. There are hundreds of possible teams, from leagues no one has heard of, which is pretty good. This was the last game I put in my Gamecube that Christmas morning, and I still play it today.

The Legend of Zelda (NES)

The Legend of Zelda review (NES)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The first Zelda game released to the world. This game introduces you to Ganon/Link/and Zelda who all appear in multiple Zelda games after. This game introduces the 8 dungeons, and the scattered Heart Pieces. This game introduces to you the mastersword, and the various shields and subweapons. There are potions and fairis, and skeletons and moblins. This game introduces you to all of that.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

This is by-far the first Zelda game I had ever played. I was easily confused at first, and had trouble getting past the very first puzzles (that dumb mushroom). But after a little help from my peers, and my refusal to ever give up, I had one of the funnest gaming experiences. This Zelda game is an improvement upon that gameboy game, but truly they are the same, except one has color.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The Zelda series is definitely the best puzzle-type game for the action/rpg genre. And Ocarina of time is by far the high point for the Zelda history. I love this game unlike any of the others, and this is the game that really put Zelda on my map. There was so much to this game, and all of it was great. Besides Ogre Battle 64, and possibly Castlevania, Ocarina of Time was the best game to ever appear on the Nintendo 64.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

A sequel to one of the greatest games ever, using that same control system which made it work so well. This game should be great, or even better seeing they know what to fix from the first Zelda (even though that wasn't much). Problem is Majora's Mask is not even close to as good as Ocarina of Time, and is not near as fun to complete. I really don't know what went wrong, maybe it was the strange storyline, the decrease in good music, or the gameplay that just didn't have the same edge. Zelda: Ma...

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (GameCube)

Sonic Adventure 2: Battle review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

I have never played a Sonic game in my life before this, and when I heard Sonic was coming to Gamecube, and with the lack of good games currently out, I knew I was going to buy Sonics Adventure. Now some people call this a bad buy, but it is definitely not. I love this game, and I prefer it to Resedent Evil and maybe Smash Brothers for this system. I have put many hours into going through the game just trying to beat it. Sure, I won't be the person going after 180 emblems, but if I was that is e...

Gauntlet Legends (Nintendo 64)

Gauntlet Legends review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Gauntlet Legends is supposebly based on an arcade series, however I have never played the arcade game, but I decided to buy it anyway. You have the choice between 4 types of warriors (Archer, Wizard, Warrior, and Valkyrae) to battle your way to kill an evil demon lord. The game is entertaining, even if you do not have three friends to join in the fighting.

Rayman 2: The Great Escape (Nintendo 64)

Rayman 2: The Great Escape review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Rayman 2 looked extremely awesome in the commercial on television. After begging my way into getting a nintendo 64, I decided this game was one I really wanted. This game was a pricy $60 when I got it, and was easily the most expensive game I got that Christmas. This game is kinda similiar to games like Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64, but there are no mini games, just constant searching. This leads to semi entertaining play, and a game that after a while gets pretty repetitive.

Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge (Game Boy)

Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge review (GB)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

After the disappointing Castlevania Adventure Konami knew another Gameboy Castlevania game had to be made, and be made much better. They then created Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge. This game was much more appreciated by the public then the one which game before it, but still it did not have the great feeling those Nintendo Castlevania's game did. However it does have a much better feeling to it.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (Game Boy Advance)

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon review (GBA)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

The Castlevania saga does not die. It continues on in this game in the form of Nathan Graves, who recieves the whip from his master, however also bringing on the jealousy of his bestfriend. This is more of an RPG like Castlevania with the leveling up system, and that just increases the fun of the game. This game strongly resembles that of the playstation hit Symphony of the Night, and it serves the games legacy well. This is one of the best in this outstanding series and here is why:

Final Fantasy Adventure (Game Boy)

Final Fantasy Adventure review (GB)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

This is probably the best classic Gameboy game ever made. It's story line resembles a book (Elfstones of Shannara), and that there is much detail along the way. You gain many different allies along the way including an Chocobo and a Robot... Plus when you think you have won the game, it turns out that there is so much more.

Madden NFL 2001 (Nintendo 64)

Madden NFL 2001 review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

In my mind EA Sports Madden is the best of the football games. It's straight-out hardcore football. It is also reasonable, that you can win with either the Cardinals or the Colts, skill is evident, but upsets are possible. This is personally my favorite sports game period and here is why.

The Sims review (PC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

To have the oppurtunity to marry your one true love and have children. To own a bachelor pad with your friend, and enter the dating service. To get your dream job and become an international spy, an Astronaut, or even a superhero. This is what dreams are made of, and Sims lets you work your dreams in this simulated world.
