10. Soul Calibur II
A lot of gamers were disappointed when Nintendo decided to go with a cel-shaded cartoony style for Link's debut on the GameCube, so when a more realistic version of the sword-wielding hero was added to the cast ofSoul Calibur II, the fanboy inside me squealed with delight. The originalSoul Caliburwas a fighting game masterpiece on the Dreamcast, and the sequel only improved on that formula. While the game launched across all three major platforms, the GameCube version was the one to get, solely because of Link's presence.
9.Skies of Arcadia: Legends
Speaking of great Dreamcast games, Sega took it up itself to bring its beloved role-playing gameSkies of Arcadiato the GameCube in the form of an enhanced port, subtitledLegends. For those that missed out on the this incredible RPG the first time, the GameCube re-release provided the perfect point of entry for fans of the genre. The game's incredible airship combat and cast of unique characters makes it one of the most memorable story-centric experiences available on the console.
8. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
How do you follow up a genre-defining, franchise-evolving game likeMetroid Prime? You take bold new risks by adding elements like an alternate dimension and Dark Samus. While such changes proved to be polarizing points for fans of the original, one must commend Retro Studios for not simply playing it safe by making more of the same.Metroid Prime 2: Echoesis very much aMetroid Primegame, while still feeling unique and different enough from its predecessor. If you're a fan of the female bounty hunter, this one is a must.
7. Super Mario Sunshine
Perhaps the most controversialMariogame of all time was the 3D entry on the GameCube.Super Mario Sunshinewas unlike anythingMariofans had ever seen, thanks to a water-blasting contraption strapped to the back of the trusty Goomba-stomping plumber. Instead of returning to the massive castle setting seen inSuper Mario 64,Sunshinetook us to a tropical paradise, a move no one was expecting. While following up the 3D platforming masterpiece that launched on the N64 couldn't have beenan easy task,Sunshinemanaged to deliver a satisfying and completely new type of experience for fans of the series.
6. Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
GameRevolution Radio listeners are probably well aware of my love for the originalMetal Gear Solid, so it should come as no surprise to you thatThe Twin Snakeshas managed to earn a place so high up on this list. The PlayStation original was easily one of the best games for Sony's platform, thanks to its groundbreaking approach to storytelling. However, technical limitations held it back from being the super-cinematic experience it deserved to be. That is why I absolutely love Silicon Knights' remake and would recommend it wholeheartedly to any video game fan.
