Review: The Legend of Zelda - GBA

Title: The Legend of Zelda
Platform: GBA
Author: Snowcone
I implore everyone that doesn't own this to find a copy as soon as possible. Unless of course you own the Zelda Collectors Disc for Gamecube, then you probably have already satisfied your Classic Zelda fix.

Review: Contra Advance: The Alien Wars EX - GBA

Title: Contra Advance: The Alien Wars EX
Platform: GBA
Author: Snowcone
I don't know that I would recommend this as a purchase given its length, but if you are looking for a challenging on-the-go shooter to play with a friend, Contra Advance may be just what you are looking for. If not, you can probably just look the other way.

Review: NBA Jam - PS2

Title: NBA Jam
Platform: PS2
Author: Snowcone
If you are looking for a fast paced arcade style game and can cope with the advantage the CPU has then by all means pick up NBA Jam. For everyone else, you would be better off looking at some of the newer basketball games to hit store shelves. I will personally be trading this one in just as fast as I can.

Review: Van Helsing - Xbox

Title: Van Helsing
Platform: Xbox
Author: Snowcone
I really have had a lot of fun with Van Helsing and I think the story is very immersive. Is Van Helsing a blockbuster sleeper hit? Nah, but it is definitely something you can pickup and play through a few times without it getting old.

Review: Driv3r - PS2

Title: Driv3r
Platform: PS2
Author: JoeHonkie
There is some decent fun to be had with the driving games, but except for the graphical upgrade, you may just want to stick with the first game.

Review: Sly Cooper & The Thievius Raccoonus - PS2

Title: Sly Cooper & The Thievius Raccoonus
Platform: PS2
Author: Dots
While, there is plenty to criticize about the game, overall, it was enjoyable and I had fun playing it, which if you ask me makes any game worth a shot. But yet I am still sitting here all confused as to whether or not I actually like Sly Cooper and the Theivious Racoonus.

Review: R-Type Final - PS2

Title: R-Type Final
Platform: PS2
Author: Snowcone
R-Type Final is a 2D/3D hybrid that delivers a difficult game experience with a level of customization that is out of this world.

Review: Manhunt - PS2

Title: Manhunt
Platform: PS2
Author: Pickle
Manhunt is well done in almost all respects, however I would consider it a good rental as you can take the game in the few days you have it. Manhunt will bring out the psycho in you. By the way, it's just a game.

Review: Seasons - PC

Title: Seasons
Platform: PC
Author: Snowcone
Seasons is a different twist to the same style of puzzle game you have probably seen before and it is definitely worth the time you spend playing it. At $15, it borders on overpriced, but for a puzzle game fanatic it may be the next great addiction.

Review: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Gamecube

Title: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Platform: Gamecube
Author: Snowcone
The Two Towers is a really nice RPG-ish action game that puts you in the action of the epic trilogy. Spot on graphics and wonderful gameplay really make for an enjoyable experience.

Title: Battlefield Vietnam
Platform: PC
Author: Pretzel
I suggest that all of you PC gamers really consider securing yourself a copy of this game because it's a classic.
