REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

Could it be any better than the orginal???

Oh Lord... Thank you, it is!

If you didn't buy the first one, go out, buy it, then get this one, these games are the only reason anyone should buy a GC.

ok... Enough suckin up to the man.

The graphics in this game are just as good as the original, plus there are new weapons, enemies, and tough boss battles.  The sound/music has music from the original metroid games in it, which just adds to the awesomeness of this game.

The controls are stil the same, with some minor changes with the new weapons, and most important in this game, is the legendary SCREW attack. Any metroid fan knows that this abliltiy kicks major ass.

Plus, its an attack that has the word SCREW in it. C'mon!

The story line is waaaay diffrent from any metroid storyline that I know of, but this game is still pretty good to its orginal roots. A sad fact is that you don't have any more Chozo spirits to play with.

This game has a bunch of new features, but still alot of memories from the metroid franchise.

All in all, a great game, plus with the decline of the GC its pricing can't be beat. Bust open the piggy jar, and buy this game.
