Sega's Shinobi series makes its Game Boy Advance debut in this original adventure unrelated to 1989's Genesis game of the same name. As a ninja warrior skilled in the arts of stealth and combat, you begin a quest to recover five elemental swords needed to free the land from the curse of Goaku. Each sword can be found in five distinct lands, but in order to retrieve them, you must defeat their masters: Shogun warriors possessed with special powers. Once a sword has been released from its captor, you are free to wield it and tap into its unique abilities.<br><br>A total of 20 levels are available in the game, each offering both vertical and side-scrolling movement as well as various secrets. Fans of previous titles in the series will recognize a similar power-up system, which imbues the protagonist with magical powers. In addition to using sword attacks and shuriken throws, players can overcome adversity with the skills of decoy, stealth, spirit, double jump, and more. Each level also has secondary objectives that, when completed, award you with special bonuses. Less

Turn-based battle advances with this sequel to the acclaimed GBA launch title. Like the original, Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising features a cast of amiable characters whose cute anime-style belies challenging, strategically complex gameplay. What at first may appear to be a cartoonish "kiddies version" of a PC hex-map war game is actually designed to offer the balance, sophistication, and options to hold the interest of even veteran grognards.<br><br>Many favorite characters from the original Advance Wars are back in Black Hole Rising. Andy returns to the battlefield, full of youthful exuberance. Sonja, Grit, and Sami reprise their roles as well. Even Nell is back, to offer guidance and encouragement along the way.<br><br>Sturm, the commander of the Black Hole Army, is threatening to invade Cosmo Land. Players must gather forces and protect the land from his assaults. Advance Wars 2 features new units as well as new Commanding Officer characters, along with their new CO powers. A Map Editor allows players to create their own battlefields. As in the original, gamers can also challenge their friends in both single- and multi-pak head-to-head battles. Less

I'm starting to get the idea that remakes of classic video games are very much like remakes of classic movies. In very few cases is the new version actually better than the old. The Revenge of Shinobi for the GBA is definitely not better than the classic versions upon which it is based. I heard the... Read full review »

Sometimes it's the games with the simple premise that really become revered by gamers. The Worms series is an excellent example of how simplistic but refined gameplay can lead to a fantastic game. That is the premise behind the Advance Wars series. Yes, the learning curve is a little steeper than... Read full review »

Pros Easy to learn, difficult to master; plenty of variety; more complex than it looks
Cons Cartoonish graphics might turn off some folks
Recommended it? Yes

Nintendo, through the years, has managed to create a slew of games that are easy to learn and addictive as can be. Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising easily fits in with the games that make us remember why we bothered to purchase any system manufactured by Nintendo in the first place. As odd as it...
