It would be a shame to miss out on some frantic Mario Golf shenanigans. And hey, a little Birdie told me I have an Eagle eye for a solid Albatross, and I can guarantee that you ain’t no Triple Bogey, you’re on Par with the Hole-in-one hotshots.
If you’re somebody that is looking for more substance there is a lot to be desired, and you likely will not find it worth the price tag. That being said however, I still recommend Pokemon Snap. It’s a delightful experience that embodies what the original game intended to create and amps it up to 11. Picking it up on sale would be best, but if you cannot wait that long and really want a laid back experience, it’s a worthy purchase. Also, if you placed your bets on Pyukumuku for Pyukumuku V Wailmer, I feel sorry for you.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is a love letter to Tony Hawk, the skaters, their fans, and the people who are kids at heart all over the world. Whether you are nostalgia driven or a new fan entirely, you would be a fool to miss out on this masterpiece.
It’s on a level that I would have never even thought a Strategy RPG could achieve in terms of the sheer amount of content and without the sacrifice of quality. It’s also now the first review that I’ve ever written that has a perfect score. I will be playing this game for years to come. Thank you Intelligent Systems, and thank you Koei Tecmo, for igniting a fire that I never knew even existed within me.
Overall, Final Fantasy VIII is totally what you make of it. If you aren’t into grinding this game will most likely suck without the use of the in-built convenience options. If you were looking for something largely improved, this is definitely smack bang in the middle of “Just port it over” and “Let’s put a huge budget in this!”. But in saying that, I’m enjoying my time with Final Fantasy VIII again. Now that I’m older and I can appreciate the complexity of this game, it’s been given it a new lease of life for me. Sometimes that’s all a game needs in a remaster.
Not only is Final Fantasy XII one of the finest RPG’s out there, but Final Fantasy: The Zodiac age is also one of the finest remasters of a true classic out there. Well done, Square Enix. You caught me hook, line and sinker with this one.
