Anyway, I really enjoyed the reviews. I also forgot about Billy Hatcher. I've heard it is a pretty good title overall, glad to hear it got a B. I'll have to pick it up.
needed more great games but was the best looking of the systems... and had the best Judge Dredd game... also busta move 4 aka puzzle bobble was awesome...
Which is exactly the version I own! Sometimes, being a late adopter actually pays off. $9.99 brand new too...gotta' love Amazon.com
I'm a big One Piece fan myself, and never found the video games to be more than "passable at best". The fighting games don't even make the slightest attempt at balancing characters, and the adventure games are largely annoying collect-a-thon fetch quests. The writing is good and does the franchise justice, and if you just want to play around with the characters from a show you like, they do the job, but if you want actually good video games, you should look elsewhere.
The best game is probably One Piece: Pirates' Carnival, a collection of various zany sports games, including a soccer game that's pretty similar to the Mario Strikers game. It's pretty shallow as a single player experience, but it's great multiplayer fun.
