Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek (PC)

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek review (PC)

Reviewed on July 17, 2007

As a mystery story, White Wolf is somewhat dry. Nancy has been hired to investigate a series of dangerous incidents, including a few explosions, at Icicle Creek Lodge, but in order to fully investigate she’ll have to pull triple duty as a maid, cook, and detective. The plot unfolds steadily enough, but there’s never really the level of intrigue or danger that it so desperately tries to achieve. Sure, there are bombings—but nobody dies. Yeah, everyone’s a viable suspect with possible motives—but, really, so what?
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on June 21, 2007

Re-watching Star Wars: Episode III lately, I marveled at the complex politics that the ill-fated prequel-ogy introduced to every nerd’s favorite very, very distant galaxy. Indeed, before the vicious Empire and the heroic Rebellion, there was the noble Republic and the scheming Separatists, and, ho! Before all that, there were the Jedi and the Sith—the religious zealots, if you will, of the interstellar Crusades.
Battalion Wars (GameCube)

Battalion Wars review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 29, 2005

To be honest, my Game Boy Advance SP, once a knight in shining (quite literally, at last!) plastic, has seen little to no activity in recent months. In a sense, then, I can actually relate to the poor thing, but I digress.
F-Zero GX (GameCube)

F-Zero GX review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 04, 2003

As with the attacks, knowing when and how to perform each of these turns is vital during a race, since, depending how it turns out (pun sadly intended), a turn can lose or gain crucial seconds during a lap—consider, of course, that the difference between first and second is often a mere tenth of a second.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 15, 2003

For veterans of the original, the dungeons become all new challenges (sometimes extremely frustrating ones), with different sequences necessary for progression and a horde of remixed enemies throughout—for instance, where there might have been a few keese in Ocarina of Time, there now stands a Stalfos.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

The entire sailing element is a love-hate sort of experience: if you don’t mind occasionally spending five minutes crossing the entire ocean to get from point A to point B or constantly changing the direction of the wind, then you can easily dismiss the potential frustration and realize that it is actually a rather fun experience, and simply exploring the ocean, finding all the islands and their respective objectives, is actually enjoyable.
Skies of Arcadia Legends (GameCube)

Skies of Arcadia Legends review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 06, 2003

Dungeons, too, are nearly flawless. Void of the usual maze and switch puzzles found in so many RPG’s, the dungeons in Skies of Arcadia Legends, although not entirely difficult, contain what feel more like actual traps than useless obstacles whose only intent is to hinder your progress. Although disappointingly scarce, the puzzles are only the backdrop to the real meat and potatoes of any RPG: the battles (luckily, the frequency of random encounters has been toned down a bit since the past incarnation).
Metroid Prime (GameCube)

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 29, 2002

Metroid Prime is not a first-person shooter, however. Nintendo itself has hailed the title as a first-person “adventure,” and for good reason; throughout the game, the player must pay close attention to his or her surroundings, observing and thinking more than shooting.
Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on November 29, 2002

The average player will tackle this game’s adventure in about 12 hours of total gameplay, while the hardcore Metroid player could beat it in half that time. And since Metroid Fusion does not benefit at all from the linkup with Metroid Prime, there are no real bonuses to keep you playing. However, speedy players will be rewarded with different endings, and finding every item in the game proves to be quite a time-consuming task.
Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube)

Super Mario Sunshine review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 16, 2002

This freeform sense of interaction with the environment helps immensely in immersing the player into the game’s sunny, tropical atmosphere, and lets the player become comfortable with Mario’s new moves, most of which involve the water pack.
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube)

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 05, 2002

However, ED adds to the incessant zombie slashing with the innovative ''Magick'' system. Aside from basic healing spells, the different magicks include enchanting items for added power or solving puzzles, creating a magick-proof shield to aid you, or revealing invisible enemies or objects, among others.
Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader (GameCube)

Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader review (GCN)

Reviewed on June 18, 2002

The animation, especially of the ships’ movements, is remarkably accurate to the movies, and, in some cases, even better. The ships’ hulls, themselves, are perfectly rendered, immediately recognizable at first glance. The FMV scenes from the original movies, which are shown throughout the game’s menu system, add even more quality to the already nostalgic title.
Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube)

Super Smash Bros. Melee review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Of course, Super Smash Brothers was all about multiplayer, and that hasn't changed in Super Smash Bros. Melee. Nothing beats a well-fought match against four of your best friends, pulverizing eachother, taunting eachother with your elite skills.
Pikmin (GameCube)

Pikmin review (GCN)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

In your search to find the ship parts, you must, of course, rely on the Pikmin to help you through your tasks. Up to 100 may be in the field at any time, either following (or fighting with) Olimar, laying idle, breaking down gates, or carrying objects back to their...
Donkey Kong 64 (Nintendo 64)

Donkey Kong 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Donkey Kong 64 follows closely the tried-and-true Mario/Banjo-Kazooie action-adventure philosophy, and, to enter new levels, you not only need to defeat the bosses, but you also need to collect golden bananas, which you will get when you solve certain puzzles or perform special tasks.
Jet Force Gemini (Nintendo 64)

Jet Force Gemini review (N64)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

As a third-person shooter, the formula for JFG works perfectly. For instance, pressing the 'R' shoulder button will change the view to a semi-first-person view, with your character's body becoming transparent, and a crosshair appearing on-screen. You can move the crosshair with the analog stick, and/or move using the C buttons.
Pokemon Silver Version (Game Boy Color)

Pokemon Silver Version review (GBC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Sometimes when beating a trainer, they will ask to give you their number. If you agree, they will call you from time to time with hints of where to catch wild Pokémon. I just found this an annoyance, but it can also be an advantage.
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

New in Link's Awakening DX is a full-color dungeon, only accessible through the GBC. In it, you will have to solve various color-oriented puzzles, and after defeating the boss, Link may don either a blue or red tunic, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
Super Dodge Ball Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Super Dodge Ball Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

And that brings me to this point: the single-player replay value stinks! After your first two or three championships, you will find that the game just isn't any fun anymore. Even at the highest difficulty setting it is still way too easy...
Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future (Dreamcast)

Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future review (DC)

Reviewed on Date Unknown

Not only does Defender of the Future have absolutely no replay value whatsoever, it is so gosh-darn hard that you probably won't even finish the freakin' thing! Nonetheless, the game does contain at least some enjoyment, and it looks so good that you'll probably spend all your time admiring your sourroundings and ignoring the actual objective of your quest.
