    Right, here goes:

    Freeloader - yes, definitely get it. It is basically a boot disc allowing you to play games from USA or Jap.

    Games - here is a list of some that I have with marks:-
    • Winning Eleven 6: Final Evolution (Jap only) - the undisputed BEST footie game in the universe - 10/10
    • Zelda WW - If you enjoyed the N64 games you'll love this. - 9.5/10
    • Super Monkeyball 1 & 2 - this is what the Cube was made for - 10/10
    • Metroid Prime - once you get into it it is sublime - 9/10
    • Super Mario Sunshine - I've always preferred Mario games in 2D but this is as good as Mario 64 IMHO. - 9/10
    • Soul Calibur II (Jap only) - BETTER than the DC version and easily the best 3D fighter out. I have 2 of THESE and it makes a world of difference. 9.5/10
    • Eternal Darkness - graphically average, but atmosphere-wise far better than the Resi Evil series. - 8.5/10
    • Pikmin - you'll love this. A cutesy RTS where you control little plant like creatures. - 8/10
    • Animal Crossing (USA) - the game which made me sell my PAL Cube and buy an Jap/USA modded one. It's not getting a PAL release which is a shame cos it's brilliant. - 9/10
    • Star Wars Rogue Leader - a shallow but stunning shooter. I love it. - 8/10
    • Ikaruga (Jap/USA) - the BEST 2D shoot-em-up ever. - 9/10
    • Mr Driller Drilland (Jap) - Possibly the best puzzle game out - 9/10
    • Waverace Bluestorm - I rate this very highly. It requires dedication to play and learn the controls but once mastered you'll love it. - 8.5/10
    • P.N.03 - stylish and shallow shooter. Did I say Stylish? - 7/10
    • Star Fox Adventures - easy but graphically superb 3D adventure - 8/10


    Others I have or had:
    Sega Soccer Slam - 7/10
    Burnout 2 - 9/10
    Resi Evil - 7/10
    Resi Evil 0 - 8/10
    Timesplitters 2 - 8/10
    Luigis Mansion - 7/10
    Beach Spikers - 6.5/10
    Super Smash Bros Melee - 6/10
    Kunnike Man Second Generation (Jap) - 8/10
    Godzilla Destroy All Monsters Melee - 5/10
    Turok Evolution - 2/10 - don't let anyone fob you off with this crap.


    Really hot games due out in 2003 or so:

    Viewtiful Joe
    FZero GX
    Mario Kart Double Dash
    Warioworld
    Mariogolf


    You may want to get a couple of Wavebirds - best pads ever IMHO.

    I also have a GBA Player and a couple of Hori Digital pads to go with it. Playing some of the GBA games on the TV feels like I have my SNES out again!!! :clap:

    HTH mate.

    Think ONO has basically covered it, he should do the marketing for Nintendo.

    I would also recommend Burnout 2 and Tiger Woods 2003.

    Ono, why did you have to buy an NTSC GC to play Animal crossing when you have the Freeloader disc?

    That's right Nero matey. Although FL is excellent - the whole disc swapping thing just pisses me off as well. Getting an Import Cube is so much easier.

    I have also vowed not to buy another PAL only console. It just frustrates me too much. Bought a grenn XBox today - but won't even bother unpacking it until I get it chipped.

    Zelda - 10/10it is world class.

    Mario sunshine - 8/10 great platformer can be frustratoing

    Timespliiter 2 - 8.5/10 great multiplayer

    Eternal Darkness - 8.5/10 great game though it gets a little repetitive towards end

    Metroid prime - 10/10 class

    Super Monkey Ball 2 - 10/10 better than the 1st

    Rocky - 8/10 great fun with a mate

    Star wars rogue squadron - 9/10 graphically excellant and ytou can now pick it up for £15 second hand

    Luigi mansion - 9/10 short game but worth picking up for £15 second hand

    disagree with you on Beach Spikers.

    BS, 4 wavebirds and lots of beer is a fantastic night.

    :smashin:

    single player is crap though:boring:

    6.5 is not a bad mark from me. :D

    I do think it is a much better volleyball game than DOAX on the XB which has better graphics but doesn't feel as intuitive to play.
