Mario Kart 7Mario Kart 7 ReviewBy James BestThe Mario Kart series has become a staple for Nintendo as well as a big seller. Though each individual game is a financial success, no Nintendo system has ever had more than one Mario Kart game. Compared to most other Nintendo consoles, the 3DS got its iteration of Mario Kart early on in its lifespan. Mario Kart 7 is the newest installment to the series and follows in the footsteps of its predecessors, Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Wii, with a roster of new and retro courses as well as a robust online multiplayer experience.The graphics in Mario Kart 7 are arguably the best in the series. It has liquid smooth animation and detailed models that even the Wii version seemed to lack. The 3D effect makes it look even better, but it does not affect the gameplay as much as it did in Super Mario 3D Land.Mario Kart 7's music is good, but there is not much players have not heard before. That said
The Minish Cap ReviewThe Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap ReviewBy James BestAfter the success of the Oracles series, Nintendo once again helped developer Capcom to create another Zelda game. This time around, the developers decided to make a more traditional Zelda game with no fancy gimmicks like the dual-cartridge Oracles. It would be a single player game, unlike Four Swords, although they did borrow many elements from this game. The new game was called The Minish Cap and it was released in the U.S. in early 2005 on the GameBoy Advance.The Minish Cap describes the creation of the Four Sword that appears in Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures. It begins with Link and Zelda going to the Picori Festival. The festival is a centennial ado made in celebration of the defeat of an army of monsters that were sealed away in a magical blade known as the Picori Sword. This weapon was gifted to the hero of men by a race of the same name.Trouble i
Metroid II: Return of Samus ReviewMetroid II: Return of Samus ReviewBy James BestIf anyone has read my review for the original Metroid on the NES, they would know that I have a very low opinion of it. One of my major gripes about the game was that it had an unforgiving difficulty level due to the fact it gave players only a minute bit of health whenever they booted up the game or re-spawned. Thankfully, these and other problems are amended in the game's handheld sequel, Metroid II: Return of Samus.Metroid II: Return of Samus takes place after the Metroid Prime trilogy, which has little bearing on the story of this particular game as Metroid II came out over a decade before the first Prime game. Instead, Metroid II continues the story that began with Zero Mission. Samus had destroyed the Space Pirate operations on Zebes when she is commissioned by the Galactic Federation to hunt down and exterminate the remaining Metroids on SR-388, where the species was said to originate.
