Nintendo

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

Game Description:  The Legend continues on Nintendo GameCube in an all-new epic adventure for one to four players. Fusing cooperative and competitive action, Four Swords Adventures features a unique gameplay system that incorporates both the television and the Game Boy Advance. When you enter a building or dive into a cave, your character switches from the TV to the Game Boy Advance. When you emerge, the frantic action shifts back to the big screen. To thwart Vaati's nefarious forces, you'll have to master new skills and techniques never before seen in the Legend of Zelda series.

Star Fox: Assault – Second Opinion

The Starfox name has traditionally meant decent (or better) shooter action, and Namco is a strong company whom I usually have great faith in. Although I actually did enjoy StarFox Adventures' foray into third-person action, I was quite glad when it was announced that Assault would be closer to the series' traditional space-borne roots. Unfortunately, (and somewhat contrary to Tera's take on it) the end result of this Nintendo-Namco joint project is a schizophrenic mess not worth the time or money.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Game Description: In Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, you'll battle to defend an empire against internal dangers and external threats. On another world, humanity struck a bargain with demons and ensured generations of peace. Now, suddenly and for no reason, the Grado Empire has invaded neighboring Renais. Twin heirs to the throne of Renais, Eirika and Ephraim, fight to free their kingdom and uncover the secret behind their former ally's treachery.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones – Review

Is the Game Boy Advance dead? It may be easy to think so with all the post-E3 talk of next-generation systems, let alone the current struggle between Nintendo's new kid on the block, the DS, and Sony's eye-candy PSP. However, there are still a few GBA nuggets worth looking at trickling onto retail shelves. The second of Nintendo's long-running strategy series to be released stateside, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, is one of them.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones – Consumer Guide

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Fantasy Violence

WarioWare: Twisted!

Game Description: WarioWare: Twisted! brings back the fun of teh 5 second microgames that made the first WarioWare such a hit. Dr. Cry-Gor is back and he changes things by adding a new gyroscope to Wario's GBA. Now you can control the action by rotating the entire GBA and pressing the A Button. Along with this new motion sensor, the cartridge has a rumble pack for force feedback. Tons of crazy, spin-controlled games are waiting for you!

WarioWare: Twisted! – Review

 It's hard to think of a game more suited to exploiting the fun of a gyroscope sensor—the built-in motion sensor that detects rotations of the GameBoy Advance—than WarioWare, so kinetic and physical were its mini-games even when they merely involved single button presses.

WarioWare: Twisted! – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Cartoon Violence, Crude Humor

Star Fox: Assault

Game Description: Star Fox Assault brings back the classic space-combat action with an all-new adventure! After saving the Dinosaur Planet in their last adventure, the Star Fox team is sent to face a new menace. But when a standard combat mission takes a strange turn, the team finds themselves fighting on land and on foot, for the first time ever. Help Star Fox survive this new adventure! Incredible graphics make you feel like you're really there, battling for an alien planet.

Star Fox: Assault – Review

Star Fox: Assault's story is shoot-em-up simple: interstellar cockroaches called aparoids are taking over the universe, and the Star Fox team must take them out. Together with old friends Slippy, Falco and Peppy—and his sometime-girlfriend Krystal—Fox exterminates the aparoid menace, one planet at a time. It's not exactly Final Fantasy, but so what?
