Enjoy it!...Best ever...One of the Best Zelda games, Portable...The graphics on this game are not the same crispness that you'll find in most modern games but the game more than makes up for that with its storyline.

Join with Link once again in this digitally remastered game, and set off with him on a quest to destroy King Ganondorf in Nintendo Selects: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina in Time.
Cool Game...Loves it...Best portable Kart...I did like the addition of a few point-to-point "tracks" divided into sections instead of the standard race track, but again these aren't really utilized very well, and a couple of them seem much longer than the standard 3-lap race elsewhere.
It's time to prepare your strategy and get your kart ready to race across the dusty desert course. The competition with be tough, but you've equipped your kart with giant tires so you can expertly careen through the off-road track. Racing takes strategy, customization and of course, skill and you have everything it takes to win the race and become a champion of Mushroom Kingdom.
The race is on and the excitement of Mario Kart is back and now in stunning 3D on your Nintendo 3DS with Mario Kart 7. Reach new heights as your kart soars over track shortcuts with a special wing and plunges into the sea with a propeller. Customize your vehicle with accessories to suit the track, whether it be big tires for off-road tracks or small tires for city courses. Race as your Mii or one of your favorite Mushroom Kingdom characters, and take on exciting courses over a mountain road, through city streets, across a dusty desert, around new courses on Wuhu Island and in the jungles from Donkey Kong Country Returns. Compete with up to eight racers for fierce competition with your friends or other players around the world. The race is on.

5 stars....Very fun...Classic Mario in portable form...While the game is a portable version of Super Mario Bros for the Wii it's still a must have to have when looking for an excuse to pass the time in a really FUN way!
Dive right back into the Mushroom Kingdom for another classic gameplay experience with everyone's favorite characters,
Mario and Luigi. Of course, Princess Peach has been kidnapped yet again by the malevolent Bowser, but the
bros. have a new and gilded objective to complete: collect as many gold coins as humanly possible. Mushroom Kingdom glows with the light of mountains, caverns and even characters made of gold, and Mario will not rest until Peach is safe and the gold is his.
You can still count on the action-packed fun that the Super Mario bros. franchise always brings to the table, but this time, with added golden opportunities like turning enemies into golden versions of themselves and a gold flower that gives Mario the ability to turn almost anything in his path into gold. This game keeps a running tally of every gold coin you've collected across all the levels so you can monitor your progress. Team up with a friend who can play as Luigi in the new two-player mode that allows you to use wireless Internet to tackle the adventure. Play in Coin Rush mode to see how many coins you can collect across three levels, and then challenge your friends to beat your record with StreetPass. No matter how you play, you'll soon be catching gold coin fever and the only cure is to grab your 3DS and play more New Super Mario Bros. 2.
FPS fun...4 stars....Fun shooter great mobility options...This game brings a lot of great things to the table like the ability to play as on-ground pilots with parkour style movement or as giant controllable mechs, and there is no point that you are in either that you feel like either isn't a threat to bringing you down.

A thrill!...Love it!...I think the levels are designed well, and they take into consideration the player's vertical mobility....I sure am glad I did though as it includes one of the best single player campaigns in years and the best multiplayer currently available on this gen. The best thing is all future maps will be available for free to everyone and all paid dlc will be of the cosmetic variety.

5 STARS...a STEAL!...Top-notch cinematography and voice acting echo--and at times exceed--contemporary standards for film and TV, carrying extraordinary characters into the realm of believability...Probably one of the highlights is the wide range of ways in which one can approach a situation, all the way from running in and punching guards with your metal hand to sniping with a silenced rifle at the unsuspecting soldiers, all the while listening to jams from the 80s (if you so desire to use your Walkman).

The art of war may be thousands of years old, but on the battlegrounds of the future combat has become a big business. Where men and women once stood in defense of their nation the employees of Private Military Corporations (PMCs) are deployed, armed with the latest technologies and an arsenal of advanced weapons. Soldiers no longer need to specialize in any area of combat — equipped with powerful exoskeletons, they become the masters of all battlefield skills. In this new age of privatized combat, one PMC stands at the forefront of the industry, the juggernaut Atlas Corporation. Founded and led by Jonathan Irons, perhaps the most powerful man in the world, Atlas Corporation represents the evolution of modern combat. Under the oversight of Irons and men like him, the rules of warfare have been completely rewritten, and national borders change with the demands of the highest bidders.

Step onto the battlefield in a powerful exoskeleton that provides a massive force multiplier, delivers strategic freedom and enhances even the most adept soldier's abilities with optimized movement, jumping and grappling, covert cloaking abilities and biomechanics that take your strength, awareness, endurance and speed to the next level. Destroy opposing forces with an advanced arsenal that allows you to dominate the battlefield and all-new equipment, abilities and perks that put you at the forefront of combat technology. Conduct missions with hoverbikes, highly specialized drones and other new vehicles that enhance your mobility. Attack enemy forces with tried-and-true standard ammunition or step up your assault with new directed-energy weapons. The future of war is upon you — are you ready to play your part?
