The Good
* This game is my entire childhood.
* Easy to understand, fun to play, addictive.
* Wonderful concept.
* Fantastic replay value (even if it means having to erase your previous save)

The Bad
* Only able to have one save. Meaning that if you want to replay it from the start, you'll have to delete your previous save.
* Some Pokémon's are only accessible by linking to to other people. This day, that's a bit hard if you only own one game.
* This might just because I'm used to the running feature of previous games, but without the bicycle, he moves very slow.

Pokémon: Emerald Version - Game Boy Advance
I do have this game, but somehow I'm unable to locate it. Which is sad, seeing as this is possibly the game I've "completed" the most.

Donkey Kong Country - Game Boy Color



The Good
* I've not completed the game, but seeing as I've played many levels and have a low percentage score, I can only assume that this game features many levels.
* Bonus games and minigames.
* Three save file locations.
* Lot's of variety in layouts.
* Good gameplay
* Much fun.

The Bad
* Not necessarily, but the level I'm stuck on has been frustrating me over the years. Hmpf.
* The graphics ain't too impressive. All though decent, everything considered.

Rayman Advance - Game Boy Advance



The Good
* This game is beautiful in the form of graphics and music.
* 60 levels with a solid range of variety in difficulty.
* Huge range in controls.
* This game is really quite the challenge. Particularly if you're, like me, not that good in hand held console games.

The Bad
* Even though the controls are good, they don't feel to precise at times. Making certain things frustratingly difficult, even if it ain't really supposed to be that on those things.

People who added this item 218 Average listal rating (113 ratings) 8.4 IMDB Rating 0



The Good
* This gameplay has always been great. It's a perfect example of a wonderful, challenging gameplay that has stood the test of time with ease.
* Eight different world and a total of 90 levels.
* This game is a real challenge.
* It also shows that one doesn't necessarily need the most impressive graphics and visuals as long as the level design is varied, creative and challenging.

The Bad
* I've always thought that the controls ain't precise enough, causing some unnecessary deaths. (or it might just be because I suck.)

* Easy understand rules and deck management.
* You can collect 226 different cards.

The Bad
* Very short and easy to beat.
* Doesn't hold the same charm as battling in real life.

The Good
* Simple, fun hack-and-slash game.
* Four saving slots, meaning that you can play as four characters.
* Different levels for each character.
* Good graphics.

The Bad
* At times, there's easy to get stuck on some of the details. Meaning that you'll have to find a way to nudge yourself out.
* Simple fighting does get a bit tiresome eventually.
* Basically the same game as The Two Towers.

People who added this item 15 Average listal rating (7 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 0



The Good
* Provides a much welcome change of setting. While still offering much of the repetitive push and shove puzzles, the RPG style of the game is an interesting choice.
* The game follows the story of the book and film closely.
* You can actually avoid those annoying random battles that pester many RPG games.
* Three save slots.

The Bad
* There's something wrong with my game. Two times, I've had my saved files suddenly deleted.
* The game is ridiculously easy.
* It still gets very repetitive.

* The gameplay is also more varied this time.
* Follows the story of the book closely.

The Bad
* A bit too easy.
* Only one save slot.
* Harry walks funny and rather slow.
* A bit confusing to get around.
* Few chances to save.
* Bit convoluted to change spells

The Sims: Bustin' Out - Game Boy Advance



The Good
* You take direct control of your Sim by using the control pad.
* The game offers some variety in the form of minigames. One can for instance serve drinks at a bar.
* Many different tasks to perform.
* The game follows a straightforward story, opposed to the PC games.

The Bad
* Doesn't really feel like a Sims game.
* The Sims element that requires one do basic things such as going to the toilet or eat is annoying this game. Seeing as you can't continue with what you're doing, unless you run (or drive) all the way back to your house (or some other place) to eat, sleep, take a shower etc. It's frustrating.
* Socializing with the other Sims is dull.
* The map is unclear.
* Some Sims are nearly impossible to find when you really need to find them.
* You can not have your female Sim kiss another female Sim.

The Good
* Sound and graphics are good.
* Three save slots.

The Bad
* The images are lacking a bit depth.
* Just played a little bit and the gameplay is annoyingly repetitive. All you do is push and shove things. I'm tired of it already.
* The controls are a bit clunky. It's hard to aim your spells and it's ridiculously easy to fall into holes.
* Few chances to save.

The Lion King 1 1/2 - Game Boy Advance



The Good
* The graphics and colours suit the game.
* Split into three type of levels. You either control Timon or Pumba, you control both of them or Timon sits on top of Pumba as he runs fast.

The Bad
* So incredibly easy that I pretty much lost interest. I know I'm not a little kid, who this game is suited for, but I doubt anyone will find any form for challenge in this game.

Treasure Planet - Game Boy Advance



The Good
* Good graphics.
* For some people, I assume that this would provide an interesting gameplay. There's a lot of puzzles and solar surfing here.

The Bad
* Not my cup of tea. Didn't find the puzzles to engaging and was lukewarm towards the surfing thing.
* Not really much to do besides completing the story.

* Easy to understand.

The Bad
* Uninteresting.
* Slow.
* Dull.
* Lacks the charm of playing in real life.
* Lacks charm in general.

Toy Story 2 - Game Boy Color



The Good
* Collecting every coin in order to unlock special levels is quite challenging.

The Bad
* Platformer games like this have been done so much more enjoyable previously.
* The game and controls is naturally limited by the system, but having the jump and run ability on the same button makes certain things in this game frustrating. There is for instance impossible to jump over quickly moving objects.
* It's just so uninteresting. Can't really see why anyone would bother playing.

David Beckham Soccer - Game Boy Advance



The Good
* Decent bio of Beckham.

The Bad
* Laughable, poor graphics that looks like a very early Game Boy Color game.
* No challenge. The AI is so stupid that one can win 15-0 at their first try.
* Basically no sound.
* No save feature.
* No variation in the matches.
* Poor controls
* Awkward change of name on several well-known players.

Thanks for putting this together! I truly hope you expand on it and the other "Bml93's ___ Games - With Notes" lists you've posted. =}

I agree with your choice of Pokemon Gold/Silver as the best Pokemon generation.

I enjoyed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone back the several times I played it years ago. My main complaint was that you can't return to and revisit most sections of the castle once you've left them; is this the case with The Chamber of Secrets?
Posted: 4 years, 6 months ago at Mar 23 2:22
Yes, I'll expand and update these lists whenever there's something to update. :)

And yes, you're free to revisit some parts of the castle in Chamber of Secrets, seeing as you can collect beans and such if you want to.

That's funny, my sister also deleted my Pokémon Ruby account recently and I can't seem to find my Emerald either. Lol

Also, I agree with you on the controlls of Super Mario 3. I always had problems with them. Otherwise glad to know you'll update the lists :D
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 22 0:31
For a positive point on Pokemon Red you should put the Rare Candy cheat ;p.
I agree with you that Gold is the best game and generation (though I haven't actually played any after Crystal), I had played over 200 hours and had every single Pokemon level 100....could of easily committed murder when I found it was corrupted.
