5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it, July 27, 2007
Veteran Zelda fans will probably find this guide useless. The secrets, tricks and traps are obvious to them. But if you aren't extremely proficient in the Zelda series this book is a godsend. It's an in depth walk through of the entire game, with heart, poe, and item locations intertwined within and in a handy reference section in the back, with detailed instructions on how to get each item. Bosses are all impossible to fight until you stumble upon their weakpoints, which this guide tells you. Several puzzles are also difficult unless you've played through others in the series. While it is designed with the Wii version in mind it also covers the Gamecube version. The only difference between the two is that right and left are switched for everything, but all you have to do is switch right with left and vice versa if using the guide for the Gamecube version like I did.

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone playing the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars 28 Days Later, July 4, 2007
This is a great movie. But you can't take it as how they advertise it, as a horror film. It isn't scary, although there are a few scary scenes. 28 Days Later isn't just another zombie movie in many ways. For one thing, there aren't zombies. Zombies are the living dead, the monsters in 28 Days are living humans, infected with a virus. This means they can die any way a human would, making a more believable story. On a whole, the movie is more of a mystery than a horror film. Throughout the story your trying to find out more about the virus. In the beginning you see how it is released but you don't know that much about it or how it spread. And besides the question of what the virus is there's how far it has spread. The film takes place in England, and is thus isolated from the rest of the world leaving the question of whether or not the rest of the world has been ravaged. The acting is great as well, while the story revolves around the main characters fight for survival their emotions and relationships are clear. This movie is much more believable than movies like Day of the Dead or Resident Evil, and in my opinion much better as well.

This game is terrible. I was looking forward to a new name in World War II shooters, but this is just more of the same done worse. The controls were a little annoying, but you'd get used to them. Graphics are no where near as good as they were saying they would be. Missions were boring and character specialties (Sniping, stealth etc.) were more a nuisance then a fun addition to the genre. I'd suggest picking up Call of Duty 2, its half the price and at least 5 times as good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elite, May 8, 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The elite system is a great deal, provided you don't already own an xbox 360. If your a new buyer, the HDMI cable and 120 GB hard drive adds up to about $200 seperatly, but this bundle sells it for only $80 more than the Premium system. And if your TV doesn't have an HDMI port, as they are relatively new, it comes with a component HD cable as well. If you already own a 360, you don't need to spend another $480, just get the bigger hard drive as an accessory.

But don't pay $600 for this. I was lucky enough to get mine from Amazon in the short time they had them in stock, instead of through another seller. It was tax free and with free shipping, so $480 is all I paid. If Amazon doesn't have it in stock when you read this, just wait a few days, it's not worth over $100 to not have to wait maybe a week tops.

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is a must have if your xbox 360 is connected to the internet. It is used in place of money on the xbox live marketplace. Their you can buy new skins for the xbox guide, HD and standard definition movies and TV shows. Movies include Superman Returns, The Departed, Blood Diamond, and Jackass. TV shows include Star Trek, The Colbert Report and South Park.

HD TV shows are 240 points(per episode), so you can get about 6 with this card. Standard definition are 160, so you can get 10 with this card.

A new release movie in HD is 480 points, so you can get 3 on the card. New release standard definition are 320, so about 5 movies worth on the card.

Classic movies are 360 for HD and 240 for standard. So 4 and 6 movies respectively.

You can also purchase points directly through xbox live, 1000 points costs $12.50.

4.0 out of 5 stars Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, December 1, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes excels in many areas.

Graphics:
It has the best graphics out of all the Gamecube games. The Gamecube has always had poor graphics, but Metroid's look as good if not better than many PS2 and xbox games. They are highly detailed and smooth, better than Halo's or Final Fantasy's.

Controls:
Many people have criticized it for its odd control scheme. You can't strafe and turn at the same time, but after about a half hour of gameplay the controls feel natural. In fact, I found it hard to go back to the traditional controls for games like Medal of Honor.

Gameplay:
The enemies you face through out levels are relatively easy, and if your unsure how to take them out you can use the scanner module to scan them and find their strengths and weaknesses. Echoes sticks to the traditional game design of a boss at the end of every level. They are, almost impossible to defeat unless you know how. However, if you scan them not only will you learn of their weak points, the lock on feature will lock on to them. There are some difficult puzzles throughout the game, as well as complications getting through rooms. I suggest getting a guide. Official Nintendo Metroid Prime 2: Echoes Player's Guide

Multiplayer:
The multiplayer is good, although the single player story mode is more emphasized. There are several normal modes, like capture the flag and death match. There are also some unique modes, like bounty hunter, where you collect coins from defeated enemies. There aren't many maps, however more can be unlocked by completing the single player mode. Up to four people can play at once.

In short, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes is one of the best games available on any system. It has great graphics, an engrossing story, and a solid multiplayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Medal of Honor, December 1, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This is my favorite of the best WWII shooter game series, Medal of Honor. My main attraction to it is the long extensive campaign with an unintrusive story line. It also has a wide range of weapons in comparison to others in the series, although you usually find them in armorys instead of off dead bodys. The graphics are good considering it's on Gamecube, although the people are a little blocky. The D-Day mission is a little unrealistic, you storm the beach with maybe ten men. The rest of the campaign is great, aiming is odd after playing newer games where you look down the barrel. The story revolves around an OSS agent, however only a few missions are covert or infiltrational. The levels have you fight with the 101st and 82nd in Normandy, and over the Nijmegan bridge and through Arnhem in Market-Garden among many other places. In short, Frontline is a great game, in a great series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Generals, December 1, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Command and Conquer returns with one of the best RTS games I've ever played. It breaks from the mold of a construction site to build all buildings and the side bar for any building or traning. The graphics are superb, although the infantry are a little blocky. The terrain looks real, you can see wind in the trees and dust getting kicked up by helicopters. The game is easy to play, you can get it down in and hour tops. Using construction units and training units directly out of buildings is a big improvement over the others of the series. The gameplay is slower paced than the others, allowing you to really build up a base before widespread fighting starts. The new airfields are amazing, allowing better control of the aircraft. My only real complaints are that there are no docks or naval units, except in one campaign which is great if a little short. Also, although the civilizations units are diverse, and the generals adds further differences, the lack of civilizations takes away from the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Advance Wars Returns, December 1, 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Dual Strike is probabbly the best in the series. It features what the second lacked, and abundance of new units and c.o.'s. The first was great. I found the second more of a remake of the original than another in the series. But Dual Strike is amazing, tons of new units and ways to fight. It utilizes the DS well, using the top screen to display unit and terrain info, and the bottom is the battlefield. Using the touch screen and stylus to edit maps is an ingenious idea. The only real problem is that you can still only have three custom maps.

Nanostray is a great game. Its fun addictive and easy to play. My only real complaint is that the campaign is to short, I beat it in a few hours. But the arcade mode is great, possibly better than the campaign. Its definatly worth buying.
