Have to say, it's brilliant. I missed it when it first came out (due to me having zero money) but just recently I picked it up on eBay, fully boxed and complete, for 15.

Better than almost every game out on the three current console, and really does put Halo to shame in every respect, except maybe graphically. In comparison, the almighty "best FPS ever" is a compelte and utter joke.

Just got past the first few level and activated the slo-mo cheat for some fun, blasting guards faces to pieces, Matrix-stylee. Like on any FPS, the handgun is the best and perfect for stealthy action.

I've also got Silicon Valley (under Tilt's recommendation, for 3) and Banjo Tooie on their way, both from eBay, so it's gonna be retro couple of weeks in the run up to Kirby's Air Ride and BG&E.

I also got EyeToy Groove today, which is surprisingly fun, despite the lack of variety and awful soundtrack.

Just got Turok and Silicon Valley, SV's great, if not a little simplistic, but Turok's really, really bad. Whoever thought up that control system must have been a complete retard. The enemy AI is so frantic yet thanks to a crappy auto-aim you can hardly ever hit the little nobs.

Yay.

We have the lieks of Doom, don't we? That's a truly amazing game and just as good, if not better, on the smallscreen. Why couldn't Perfect Dark be recreated in the same way?

To be honest, I don't see it happening myself, but it's certainly possible. And of course GBA games aren't goin to take as long as console games to make, it doesn't mean they're any less complex, does it? Advance Wars taeks just as much skill as the best PC strategy games and Golden Sun equals most console RPGs.

Yes, you can't have epic shooters with fast-paced, 100-man army battles, but who cares? Mario & Luigi for example, is one of the best games I've played in years. Did that take long to make? Probably not, but it's just as complex, epic and fulfilling as any console can be.

Compared to today's efforts, Goldeneye and Perfect Dark are in a league of their own. I'm still tied between which is my favourite, at the moment Goldeneye still has that edge.

I think it's the best FPS ever as well.

I remember playing perfect dark for the first time a year back when I bought some N64 stuff. Couldn't see what all the fuss was about. Sure, good for it's time but certainly not now.

PD is the best FPS ever made because of it's variety and incredible action, suspense and thrill that the game gives you.

And are of course an official Gameboy developer... as are all of Microsoft Games Studio.

I think it'll happen because Rare authorised and personally improved Donkey Kong Country for the GBA and are doing that with Donkey Kong Country 2 as well...

I think that because Rare will have released more games for a Nintendo system by the end of this year than a Microsoft one.

I think that because porting a game is hardly the hardest thing anyone has ever done.

If you plan on playing online - No.

However, SP greatness should be enough until you get broadband.
