    Mar 11th, 2008 at 15:15:47     -    Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas (XBX)

    GAMEPLAY:
    Just with the first hour, this game was ridiculously fun to play. I progressed through the cities. I was introduced to new characters and I was able to afford new clothes and haircuts. I also saved a girl and got a girlfriend. It tracks my progress with her. I have the choice of taking her out on dates and trying to satisfy her.

    The story got more interesting especially when I was able to move to a new city. I got an airplane license so now I can fly wherever I like. There was definite flow to this game. The story progresses perfectly and as you get stronger you are open to new possibilities.

    DESIGN:
    GTA is one of a kind. It is a great free-roam game. There are different neighborhoods and they are designed off a real neighborhood just like the cities. There are a lot of different cars and depending on where you are, different cars drive around. So when you are around the beach, there are a lot of dune buggies. The levels are really varied. There are so many different things in this game.

    This game is pretty hard if you don't use cheats. Some people say that you are supposed to use cheats in GTA. And I am one of those people. I tried playing the game without cheats and it way too hard. The cheats are made to make the game more fun. Because there is so much variety in this game, cheating opens up new parts of the game you haven't seen. This game is really good at keeping the player interested.

    I would not change anything about this game. I have had a great time playing this game and I recommend it to everyone but don't take this game literally. Remember that it is just a game.

    Mar 11th, 2008 at 15:00:45     -    Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas (XBX)

    SUMMARY:
    In Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, the goal of the game is to go from city to city taking over gangs and becoming the most powerful gangster in the world. There are many things you must complete before you gain this throne.

    GAMEPLAY:
    This game is really entertaining to play. It is completely ridiculous in terms of what you are doing. But you have complete freedom over what you do and that is really fun for a player. While playing I was excited about what the game would throw at me next. What ridiculous mission I had to carry out or what I was going to customize my character and cars as. The main character, Carl "CJ" Johnson, has just returned to his home to find that his mother is dead and his old gang, Grove Street Families, is in disarray. While you go through missions, you start to find out more and more about your mother death, and you also start to build up your gang and business. The other characters in this games are great. Samuel L. Jackson does the voice for a corrupt cop and all the characters have great personalities that you either love or hate.

    The story line of this game is great. The game itself is huge so along with the story that goes with the missions, you can make your own story with other things in the game. People on the street react to you and you can reply positively or negatively and depending on how the conversation goes, you could end up fighting or getting a good word from a girl. The possibilities are endless in this game. There are so many things to discover and find out. It can keep you entertained for hours. The social interactions are great. It's fun to watch people play this game because everyone has a different way of controlling CJ. I had a blast playing this game.

    GAMEPLAY #2
    The second hour of playing this game was just as fun as the first. This game just does not get boring. The races got harder so I had to try them a couple times, but it was never frustrating. The new worlds were more fun and finding the secret world was exciting.

    I played with other people too during the second hour. The battle levels were really fun to play with people. We played them over and over and it was always a different outcome. Basically this game never got boring to play.

    DESIGN
    For an N64 game, I would say that the graphic design to this game is really impressive. Everything flowed smoothly and there weren't any glitches. Even in the multiplayer aspect, the screens weren't blurry. The design of this game was really colorful and vibrant. And since there are so many different worlds, they all looked different and had something special about them. Each level had a different flow to it. You could either focus on getting the boosts or you could focus on getting bananas and balloons. The power ups in this game are really fun and you always have a choice of what you want unlike Mario Kart. If you needed a boost, you go for three blue balloons or if you needed to slow someone down you could get the homing missile. I like this because I like having the choice of what I want to do.

    This game keeps the player interested because the levels get harder and they change so much. There are also short cuts you can find. The area you start out in is kind of cool because you can explore it. That is what amazed me when I was little. I thought it was so cool that I could fly around and explore something. For some reason when I was little I could always find cool new things. Whether it was doing tricks in the plane or jumping up a waterfall in the hovercraft, I was always entertained. I can't even think of anything that is frustrating about this game. The other thing that amazed me about this game was that it actually had cut scenes. When you got a key or won some race, there was always a cut scene. This was the first N64 game that I had played that had cut scenes.

    Diddy Kong Racing is a really solid and fun game to play by yourself or with other people.

    Feb 20th, 2008 at 15:46:49     -    Diddy Kong Racing (N64)

    SUMMARY
    Diddy Kong Racing is a simple game where you go through a fantasy world as a character of your choice. The objective of the game is to rid the land of Wizpig, the tyrannical pig who has taken over. You go through different worlds that get harder as you progress and you have three vehicles to choose from, car, hovercraft, and plane. At the end of each world, there is a boss to beat.

    GAMEPLAY #1
    You start this game out in a small comfortable fantasy land. You are greeted by a big blue elephant genie. He explains what is going on in the world and why he needs your help. You can drive around the world and explore but sometimes you need a plane or hovercraft to get into certain worlds. I really like how there is an actual story behind this game and there is a world to explore. You have a choice over which race you want to do. The only thing barring you from a certain race would be the amount of balloons you need to qualify for that race. You get balloons by winning races, beating bosses, and finding them around the world.

    After going through all the races in one world, you race against the boss and then after beating them, you have to do all the races over again and collect silver coins while still racing. You must get every silver coin and get first place. Then you race the boss again. This may seem repetitive but it actually is really challenging and fun. The sound track to this game is great and the visual ambiance is pleasing. There is still more within one world though. There is a trophy race which is like grand prix. Then there is a locked door and the only way to open it is to find a key in one of the races in that world. Once you find that key, you compete in a different kind of race. There are races to collect items, and races where you battle each other.

    This game is really fun to play. Some races get frustrating, but there is so much other stuff to do that you never get stuck on one thing without having the ability to win some other race. You have a choice between different kid friendly animals. There are some characters I recognized like Diddy Kong obviously, and Banjo. I love the story of this game. It's simple but it keeps you engaged. It's not mindless racing, you are racing for a reason. This game is just really light hearted and fun to play and watch. Someone who was watching me play actually said that is was pleasing for him to watch me and even exciting.
