    Simple really, list you games you have bought from the Virtual Console, rate them /10 and give your thoughts.

    WaveRace 64 - 9/10 - its all about the water people, tricks are great too.
    BaseBall Stars 2 - 8/10 - such simplistic fun, baseball perfection
    PacMan - 5/10 - wish it was the Atari version but still good especially with 2 players

    ok here goes--

    Wave Race 64--8/10 still superb.

    Mario Kart 64--8/10 great fun.

    Pacman--7/10 Dloaded it for the wife.I dont like it tbh

    Found all these games a bit tricky with the classic controller but i'm sure i'll get used to it.

    Here's mine:

    Super Mario World (SNES) - 10/10 - What can I say, a platforming masterpiece :thumbsup:
    Soldier Blade (TG-16) - 10/10 - Probably the best SHMUP I've played
    The Legend of Zelda: A link to the Past (SNES) - 9/10 - Never played before, but already has that "magical quality" (despite me not being very far into it)....
    Super Ghouls'n'Ghosts (SNES) - 8/10 - Rock Hard, but got this as I wanted Ghosts'n'Goblins (before that was available)....drops a few points as sometimes it's TOO hard ;)
    R-Type (TG-16) - 8/10 - Probably the 2nd best SHMUP I've played :D
    Sonic The Hedgehog (Megadrive) - 5/10 - for some reason no where near as fast as my memory tells me (memory = concorde on steroids, Currently on VC = 10:20 from paddington wading through treacle......and yes, I did play the PAL version when it first came out, so the 50Hz thing doesn't bother me).

    Gaffer74, you'll change your Zelda mark to a 10...
    Sin and Punishment - 8.5/10 Not 'quite' the classic I was hoping for - but not helped by the button layout on the GC pad..

    Mine, or at least the ones I can remember:

    Super Mario Brothers: 7/10
    Super Mario Brothers 3: 10/10 - The best platformer ever made!
    Mario 64: 8/10
    Paper Mario: 9/10 - Really didn't think I would like this but it had no end of positive comments so I gave it a go and it was excellent.
    Super Mario Kart 64: 8/10

    Bomberman 93: 9/10 - Single player is good but Multi-player is where this one really shines. Up to five players as well.
    Battle Lode Runner: 8/10 - Basically Bomberman with holes instead of bombs. Great fun!

    Legend of the Mystical Ninja: 5/10 - plenty of positive comments and reviews but I just didn't see the appeal.
    Gunstar heroes: 7/10 - Bit like above, it's OK but I don't see why people think it's quite as good as they say.

    Streetfighter 2 Turbo: 9/10
    Streets of Rage 2: 7/10 - Was really looking forward to this one being released but after playing it again, it didn't seem quite as fantastic as I remembered.

    Super Ghouls and Ghosts: 8/10 - totally agree with Gaffer74 on this one.

    TurboGrafx games

    Soldier Blade 10/10 shoot em up,loved every minute of playing that game.

    Monster Lair 4/10 I used to play this sometimes in the arcades when i was young so thought it was worth getting but i now find it abit boring.

    N64 game

    Sin And Punishment 7/10 I just couldn't get used to the controls with the Gamecube pad,i'll have to give it a try with the classic controller to see how that works with the game.If you could've played this with the Wii controls it would've been a brilliant game 10/10

    I've only downloaded Super Mario Bros 1 and 3 on the Nes (both 10/10 by the way) but no other games because I think the Virtual Console is a staggering rip-off.

    I've only bought two VC games: 'Donkey Kong Country' and 'Toejam & Earl'. Neither were as good as I remember so a 5/10 for each.
