Re: Portable Halloween Video Game Review Special

Just looking through my GBA carts, and a few came up as possibles for this list: There is a Van Helsing movie tie-in game, but I don't own it. Sounds like it could be a good Halloween game. Monster Force - uses the classic Dracula, Wolfman, Frankenstein trio (and its even by Universal Interactive). ...
