Medal Of Honor: Undergound

790_b_medalofhonor_big.jpg

The best FPS game on the GBA..........NOT! This peice of trash has it all....Bad graphics that warp all over the place, crappy sound that really annoys you, horrible targeting, and just plain bad use of colors (or i should say the lack of..). Do not waste your money on this game. I know EA could've made a better game with a tolerable frame rate and decent graphics since DOOM  came out long before this game.  Serious Sam has a great framerate and good graphics, so why can't this game do the same...........EA is the reason, they seem to get bigger and yet make  crappier games. Just look at Madden and you have your answer................................................2.0 rating *

terrible!!!!

Serious Sam

As mentioned above on the review for Medal of Honor, there is a lot of "good" shooters on the GBA. While MoH had its problems the GBA version of SERIOUS SAM is an example of how to do a FPS on the go. The frame rate is nice and the graphics are good. The level design is thoughtful in a 1995 sort of way. Since the GBA handles games from that era then thats a good thing. Plenty of weapons to be used in this game and a lot of different enemies inhabit the screen. Recommended.............8.5 rating

Rayman 3

Rayman 3 for the GBA is a nice addition to your side scrolling library of games. The level design is clever and the colors are vibrant. The gameplay is spot on and the animation is smooth. The original Rayman debuted on the Jaguar and has been a classic ever since, pick this one up.........................9.5 rating

NFS:Porche Unleashed

porche_unleashed_gba.jpg

The Need For Speed series hasn't always been a good ride. The biggest problem is when the series takes a left turn and decides to use just one line of cars. Though this game has that very problem, its forgivable on the GBA. Technically the game looks good and plays well. The tracks are well designed and the framerate is good. The colors seem a little dull though and take a way from the game. The sense of speed is there and the game can get pretty challenging later on in the game. I think this is a buy for racing fans with a GBA............................................8.0 rating

Sabre Wulf

I bought this game for a mere $6.00 and thought it would be a shallow 2D platform game...well i was wrong. This game actually is a lot of fun to play. Th e character you control has to steal jewels from a wolf that has been terrorizing the locals. First you must navigate your way to where the object you must acquire (and the wolf) is, then make a mad dash back through the way you came. The weapons are literally alive that you use. A sleeping dragon becomes a platform that helps you get to higher levels and clobberer beats up enemies for you.. I recommend this one................................................8.0 rating

Super Ghouls N' Ghosts

This is a direct port of the excellent Super Nintendo version. This is classic gaming at its finest. I have to give you a word of caution though, this game is freakin' hard. I still haven't been able to get passed the first level like i use to be able to. I do recommend this one...........................................8.0 GREAT!

Simcity 2000

250px-sc2000.jpg

I've loved Simcity 2000 for a long time no matter what console its on. I've owned for the Saturn and PSone. When I seen that it was on the GBA I had to have it. For the most part its the same game but a few elements from the original are gone. Though this takes away from the "pure" experience it still is basically the same game. The liitle quibbles I have with this version is that you don't have to worry about ANY plumbing and some stats like the you neighbor's population can't be seen. Not a bad port but you should probaly get the DS version instead.......................................................6.0 rating

Worms World Party

61jt0r9ganl__aa280_.jpg

Worms hasn't changed that much over the years but it doesn't need to. This version stays with tradition and thats what makes this game worth buying. If you've never played a Worms game then here it is in a nutshell. Its a turn based game where you're put on a ma, you're in a squad of 4 to 6 worms. Another team is placed on the same 2D map and given weapons that you use to annihilate each other. The strategy is figuring out to angle that grenade at your opponenent. If you like stratgy games then give this one a try, it a lot of fun.........................................8.0 rating
