Arcade

Super Mario Advance

Game Description: In Mario's debut on the Game Boy Advance platform, the swashbuckling plumber goes back to what he knows best: side-scrolling adventure. Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad wander this richly colored fantasyland to fight new and original enemies by collecting items to throw at them (alas, the famous jump attack isn't enough to dissuade these foes). Players are allowed to choose which character they'll play as—you can even switch between levels—and each in the cast has different strengths. For example, Luigi can jump higher than his brother, Mario, but the plumber is faster. Super Mario Advance also has a multiplayer game where up to four Game Boy Advance units can be linked together via the separately sold communication cable, allowing you to wage friendly battles for collectible coins using Koopa shells.

Metal Slug X

Game Description: Metal Slug X sets the stage for you to save the world. A power-hungry group of renegades has teamed up with aliens, and together they are planning to assume control of the planet. You are a one-man army whose mission is to squash the rebellion. There are four characters to choose from: Marco, Eri, Tama, and Fio. At the beginning, you've only got a gun and a few grenades, which isn't going to be enough. But as you rescue hostages, new weapons like rocket launchers, flamethrowers, bouncing shots, Molotov cocktails, and a shotgun are at your disposal. In addition to new weapons, you will also have access to a variety of vehicles including the Super Vehicle-001 mini-tank, Camel Slug, Slug Flyer, and Slugnoid, each packed with special weapons and abilities. The world is counting on you to stop the terrorist threat in Metal Slug X.

Metal Slug X – Review

Looking at the differences between where videogames have been and where theyre going, youll often find some groups of people saying that they miss the good old days. "Old-school" gaming, as it were. For those of us with enough years under our belts to have been active players on more than one generation of consoles, its a mysterious and sometimes indefinable quality that some claim has disappeared from games crafted today, much to the loss of game players everywhere.

Giga Wing 2 – Review

Giga Wing 2 is the latest in what most people today would classify as a rapidly dying breed—the genre most commonly known as "shooter." Reaching the height of their popularity during the late 80s and early 90s, shooters usually consisted of a spaceship or aircraft of some sort controlled by the player versus enough enemies to fill an arm of the Milky Way.

Giga Wing 2

Game Description: The heavens explode into intergalactic chaos in this classic arcade shooter for the Sega Dreamcast. The rebellion's savage forces have returned in an all-out campaign for universal domination. Pick your aircraft and prepare for high-tech dogfights, relentless enemy fire, fantastic power-ups, and devastating weapons such as the reflect laser and reflect force. Use the score multiplier to rack up astronomical high scores. Team up with three of your friends for an all-out, four-player simultaneous space battle to deliver the universe from the dark forces.

Giga Wing 2 – Second Opinion

I wouldn't classify Giga Wing 2as an exquisite gem by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think its a waste of the CD-ROM that it was burned on either. The game does try a few interesting things conceptually and while the overall success of the title is debatable, I still give Giga Wing 2 credit for the effort and I appreciated it more than Brad did.
