It's big and it's dumb (US-style 'mayhem', no depth) but it's actually quite fun in small doses and has the odd nice graphical touch. Not really an accolade but the best Terminator game from that gen, can't see GC version being that different from the PS2 & Xbox versions I got, they verrrrrry similar. ;)

Seen it as low as £25 on Bordersdown but I'd go up to £40 I think.

Would need to get RSG though first as I prefer it.

Wow, almost a year since anyone posted on this thread.

I was playing NHL 2006 over the weekend. Man I love ice hockey games. Last few years I've been playing NHL 07 on the PSP - so these are virtually identical. Had a bit of trouble with the controls though as they're not what I'm used to.

Planning to put all my GC games on a memory card so I can play them on the Wii without changing discs.

I've still been playing Phantasy Star Online and it's just as fun as ever - still looks great (and a damn sight more playable than the later online Phantasy Star games)

I have always liked the idea of these games but never played one......... and this maybe a stupid question, but is online required for them? I take it that it isnt?

For Phantasy Star Online, you don't even need an internet connection to enjoy the game - At most you'll miss out on one small section with a couple of unique enemies and its own mini-boss.

For offline play, it's got a storyline (of sorts, if you go out your way to look for it) told via message capsules and the missions. You can also play with up to 4 other players via splitscreen - but expect things to get a little graphically glitchy if you're all going seperate routes - and for things to slow down if there's lots of action going on as the gamecube has to render stuff it would normally only do once up to 4 times.

If you've got a Wii, then there's a Gamecube emulator that simulates the Modem Adapter that was available for the Gamecube - finally allowing you to play online with the Wii's wireless functionality. Naturally you'll need to look into both the emulator and the private servers that are about - most of the private servers tend to have a topic devoted to that emulator now, however.

For me, it's Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. Solid, compelling and engaging tactical rpg with interesting world and characters. Awesome game.

God bless the interweb and DVD burners. Just simply no way i'd pay 100 quid for a game some else has been holding on to to try and make money off.

Ridiculous. I remember when £60 seemed criminal - I had no idea it had risen so much. Bought mine used for about £22 when GC games were still plentiful in stores and even then I was umming and ahing before paying for it...glad I did now! Fantastic game.

The problem with FE games is that they are the victim of hype. People start bigging older releases up as overlooked classics and suddenly everybody in the world wants to own a copy.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Absolutely. Quality game + limited print run = $$$ signs in front of the eyes of the ebay fleece mob. I paid about the same as you, MM and i remember chuntering about that!
