    There is a lot of attention given to Jap games, but wot about the Euro ones? What are some good games that are strictly available in the old world?

    There are some, i can't really say best though. An example is Naruto Ninja Destiny 2.

    For quite some time, Zubo was Euro-only. It's coming out in the US I believe in a few days, but it was Europe only since fall last year. I think it gets points for that.

    they're only 2 letters away from us.. and like 2 meters.

    on a sidenote that cover is really godawful. but the game is still (or because of that?) a classic. the cover for the ds remake/sequel is slightly better too [​IMG]

    Zubo earned a 6.5/10 from Nintendo Power by the way.

    Yes, and a respectable 7.5/10 from IGN. Not that people trust them, but I've had a go with the game myself and find their review pretty accurate. Battles are like a mix of Elite Beat Agents and Sonic Chronicles (without the annoyances of Sonic). It's fun, not perfect, but might satisfy those who like quirky rhythm games or simplistic RPG's.

    Battles in Zubo are a mix of awful and crap; terrible game.

    Proper recommendations:
    Bomberman 2 (Custom Battler Bomberman in Japan)
    Crazy Machines (decent Incredible Machine clone)
    Giana Sisters DS (fun but easy Mario clone)
    Matchstick - Puzzle by DS (matchstick moving puzzles)

    Also, it's not Euro-only, but Zoo Keeper's European release has a working sleep mode, which the US and Japanese releases didn't have.
