I asked for Crash Bandicoot 4 for Christmas, so you'll need to wait for that review!

Lego Star Wars II (Nintendo DS) - one of the buggiest, most broken releases I have ever played

Is there a special controller for this one?

I have officially given up on begging for a Prince of Persia SNES review (ya don’t know what you’re missing), and instead I’ll ask for a review of Collection of Mana for Switch.

Yes there is, though I'm not 100% certain if Japanese specific or if had any US release

In addition to Lego Star Wars II DS (which is a disaster in a cart, levels don't load fully, or load incomplete, or remove the death plane in bottomless pits, I could go on...), here are less painful requests:

Nintendo DS:
Asphalt Urban 2 (significantly better than the original, which was an NGage port of all things)
Kirby Super Star Ultra
Kirby Squeak Squad
Madden NFL 06
Rayman DS
Namco Museum DS
Konami Arcade Classics DS

Game Boy Advance:
Rayman Advance
Rayman 3

Game Boy Color:
Star Wars - Yoda Stories
Star Wars - Episode I Racer


3DS:
Madden NFL
Raving Rabbids: Travel in Time 3D
Rayman Origins

Yes there is but... you can still play it with a regular NES controller. There might be an advantage to the special controller or it could be like the Atari Track & Field controller where there isn't an advantage (in Track & Field's case a detriment score-wise) - I'm not sure. I have the game on a large NES multicart and just started playing it this weekend - Think Atari Breakout on steroids (powerups & strategy).

From all reports it's a huge advantage to play with the Vaus controller -- the game basically isn't beatable without it (unless you use cheat codes or get very lucky).

Makes sense to me, since playing Breakout and Kaboom with a joystick or gamepad wouldn't exactly be ideal, but I can't speak to it firsthand. Otherwise Arkanoid is a great-looking port, though.
