GameCube Games Coming Soon
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
Release Date: July 28, 2003
In this game you can play at different courses and see famous Mario-related locations. You can choose from different clubs just like before, but now you can also choose from different swings such as back spin and top spin. The game supports up to four players, and it lets you pick from the standard cast of Mario favorites, including Peach, Luigi, and Waluigi. The game has a few different options for play, including match and stroke play or various tournaments. The game will also have some sort of connectivity with the upcoming Game Boy Advance version of Mario Golf: Advance Tour.
Release Date: August 25, 2003
F-Zero games aren't bad and this one looks sweet. It has the best graphics I have ever seen and the cars or whatever they are go will fast. For those people that don't know F-Zero is like a futuristic racing game.
The Simpsons: Hit & RunRelease Date: September 9, 2003
This is a missoin-based driving game based on The Simpsons. The game will mostly feature driving missions, but players will also be required to complete some on-foot missions as Homer, Bart, Apu, Marge, or Lisa. The game will feature 17 different drivers as well as more than 40 vehicles.
Release Date: October 7, 2003
The game's premise puts you in the role of an average Joe out to awaken his inner strength in a loopy Hollywood-style movie. Joe is rewarded with the ability to become Viewtiful Joe, a helmeted superhero who can use special powers to take on enemies. The goal is to go through levels, defeating enemies and collecting "viewtiful points" that will go toward increasing your powers. Joe's powers are essentially visual effects that he can use to affect time and initiate a variety of combos on his foes. The catch is that you're limited in the use of these powers by an onscreen meter that will turn you back into normal Joe if you exhaust it by using the powers too much. Fortunately, the bar replenishes itself fairly quickly, and you'll be able to increase the size of the bar by collecting points as you go through the game. This is a side-scrolling game but it looks rather fun.
Kirby Air Ride
Release Date: October 13, 2003
I read many reviews of this game and people don't seem to like it. I might rent it but probably not buy it, at least not for $50. I would tell you what it is about, but to tell you the truth I'm not so sure myself. I guess it's kind of like a racing game or something like that.
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
Release Date: November 4, 2003
Nintendo second-party developer Silicon Knights is working on developing a remake of Konami's classic PlayStation game, Metal Gear Solid, and it appears to remain pretty faithful to the original. Graphically, the game looks quite a bit cleaner than the original PlayStation version, putting it closer to the level of Metal Gear Solid 2.
The game controls quite well, and the GameCube controller is definitely up to the task of a Metal Gear Solid Game. You'll toggle your weapon and inventory on and off with light presses of the triggers. Pulling them all the way in lets you select new items for use. The Z trigger brings you into first-person mode. The game has a few added gameplay features taken from Metal Gear Solid 2. For instance, you can pick up and drag bodies once you've knocked a soldier out, and picking up and dropping them causes them to occasionally drop items, like rations and ammo. The codec sequences are full of fantastic voice work, and the sequences have even been lightly updated to account for the GameCube version's slightly different control. For example, the colonel tells you that you have to hit Start and A simultaneously to bring up the codec screen.
Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
Release Date: November 18, 2003
Mario Kart is awesome and this game will be too hopefully. Its a little different from usual because two characters ride in one kart and that seems strange. You get to pick any two drivers you want and any kart which I think is pretty bad ass.
Mario Party 5
Release Date: December 10, 2003
Mario Party games are all pretty sweet and I will get this one. I have Mario Party 3 and I like it. There is sapposed to be 60 brand spanking new mini games in this one witch sounds good and I hope there will be new characters too.
James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing
Release Date: Q4 2003
I have just about every James Bond game and I'm thinking I will have this one too. This one is a little different because it's not in first person anymore which means you can actually James Bond's whole body. I don't know if that will be better or not we will all just have to wait and find out.
NBA Jam 2004
Release Date: Q4 2003
Here is what all NBA Jam games must have;
Over-the-top Basketball: You expect to see players making crazy, impossible moves and soaring way above the rim.
On Fire: Having your player catch on fire after making a few baskets in a row.
Secrets: NBA Jam always have secret characters, arenas, modes, and power-ups packed into each game.
Crazy Commentary: One of the things that everyone always remembers about the original was the over-the-top commentary that matched the play on the court. "He can't buy a bucket"
True Crime: Streets of LA
Release Date: Q4 2003
True Crime takes place in a 240-square-mile re-creation of LA. It kind of looks like Grand Theft Auto becuase you can drive or walk, shoot, and fight. There are also missions you can do or you can just drive around exploring the city and looking for random crimes. I think this game will be cool and better than GTA. It will be released on GameCube, XBox, and PS2.
Release Date: TBA
Star Fox has been around a few years now and his last game was good so I will probably get this one. In this one you can play with up to four people which is different and I see it as an improvement. Rare used to make the Star Fox games but since Microsoft bought Rare I don't know who made this one.
Release Date: TBA
In the game, you'll assume the role of a ghost with the ability to possess other characters by virtually entering their bodies. The gameplay will purportedly be a combination of both stealth and action, although more specific information has not been released at this time. The footage of the game we were shown at the conference saw the player floating around invisibly before taking control of a female character and then attempting to make it past a security guard.
Metroid Prime 2
Release Date: TBA
Metroid games are usually pretty good, but not for GameCube. I have the first one and it is hard as butt so I don't imagine I will get this one.
Reviews of GameCube Games I own
This game is pretty fun, it is almost like a side scrolling game but not really you would have to see it to know what I mean. In this game a black jewle turns Wario's treasure and his castle into a different world and he must beat up everyone to change it back. It wasn't very long but it was fun while it lasted.
Super Smash Bros. Melee
This is the first game I got for the GameCube and probably still my favorite. This is the sequel to the N64 game Super Smash Bros. and I also have that. In this game you get to choose from classic Nintendo characters and than fight. There are a few different games modes and they are all pretty fun. 1 to 4 players can play this game and the more people the better I would say. I highly recommend this game to everyone.
James Bond 007 in Agent Under Fire
I have a lot of James Bond games I think I have about everyone. I think my favorite one is GoldenEye but this one is good as well. The only way this one is better is because you can have computer players in the battle mode and it has much better graphics.
Star Fox Adventures
I didn't like the old Star Fox games were all you did was fly the Airwing around, but this one is different and I think it is cool. You hardly fly in this game at all and that makes it a lot better. In this game you fight dinosaurs and solve puzzles to try and save Dinosaur Planet.
Super Mario Sunshine
This Mario game is a little bit different than normal because it doesn't take place in the Mushroom Kingdom and Mario is equipped with some sort of water sprayer. This is a great game, but I like all Mario games. They arent too hard and they are pretty long which makes them fun. There are still a few things that never change though such as you still have to save Princess Peach and Bowser is still the bad guy. Also Yoshi is back and you can ride him around.
I was a bit disappointed with this game I was expecting it to be awesome. I have only played it like 5 times and haven't got past like the second level yet, it is probably the hardest game I have ever played. If I had a strategy book it would be much easier but they are like $15 and now I can't even find them anywhere. I would not recommend this game unless you enjoy games that are impossible.
Mario Party 4
This is the fourth game in the popular Mario Party series, which you can plainly see by the title. This games features over 50 brand new mini-games and over 5 new boards. There are a few things different in this game such as now you can play story mode and win presents, and you can even be on teams in multi-player mode. Once you beat a board in story mode you must play a min-game against the owner of the board (Boo, Toad, ect.). After you beat all the boards you must play on the Bowser board and if you beat that you must fight Bowser. This is a fun game, but it gets boring after a little bit. It needs more
mini-games and boards.
James Bond 007: Nightfire
This is a sweet game, it is just like all other Bond games except sometimes when you do something special it moves from first-person (seeing only what Bond sees) to third-person (seeing Bond whole body from the back). This really makes the game more interesting. This game also has a place where you can put in codes; most Bond games don't have that option. I like this game.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
This is probably the worst Zelda game ever made by Nintendo. The graphics are all cartoony and gay. The story is completely different from any other Zelda game. You have to ride a boat everywhere, which takes forever and is boring. The game is a lot shorter and easier than any other Zelda game, which really takes away from the enjoyment. Most of the time I would highly recommend Zelda games, but not this time, I highly don't recommend this game. It takes away from the greatness of all the other Zelda games.
NBA Live 2003
This is just a great basketball game. I'm not sure what I can say about it except for that it is fun. I'm not going to bore you with things you probably don't even care about so I will leave it at that.
I also have The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time which is exactly the same as it was for Nintendo 64, but there is a Master Quest on the disk which is just a little bit harder but the same game. I got the game free when I bought The Wind Waker.
