    So sometime next week, I'm going to be getting a 3DS. I had my heart set on two games, OoT 3D and The Mercenaries 3D
    I'm still going to get OoT 3D, but from all the reviews and topics about The Mercenaries, it seems like it's not worth it.
    Do you think I should still get it? and if not, what other alternative should I get?

    People will tell you to get street fighter 4. DO NOT. Unless you are a hardcore fighting game fan, you will hate it. That's my advice.

    Mercenaries is worth it! [​IMG]

    You have set your hart on the right games! [​IMG]

    I own nearly all 3DS games and those two and Dead or Alive are my favorites. Street Fighter is okay, but if you don't like hardcore fighting it's a no never go for it!

    oot3d one you and every 3ds owner should have or be getting, RE:mercenaries is definitely worth getting, specially with the online co-op, costume changes, skills that are upgradeable.

    I actually really like The Mercs 3D. Its only downside is there isn't enough of it. But there are certain missions, particularly the EX ones, that you can and probably will replay a lot. I still can't get Co-Op to work, but I'd imagine that's really fun as well.

    Basically... Resident Evil 5 turned the series from an action horror to a straight up action game. The only difference between this and RE5 is that the latter has an actual story. In place of weapon upgrades, you have skills. In place of puzzles, you have time management and combos. In place of lots of hallways, you have a large area in which to battle all the enemies that keep coming at you. They take about as long as each other to beat, as well.

    Thanks Guys, I've decided on sticking with my original plan, and get Mercenaries.
    I'm sure it's not as bad as reviewers made it sound

    The reviews say Mercenaries is somewhat a blown up mini game.. I'm not a hardcore enough Resident Evil or shooters-on-handheld fan, so I will probably skip on it.

    I am enjoying OOT, Shadow Wars and DOA.

    OoT3d is amazing but go to toys R Us shadow wars is on sale for 15.99 and well worth it.

    I have got a 3DS but need to buy games for it. I am thinking of buying OoT and Pilotwings. But I have heard that Pilotwings is pretty small.
    So my question is for the person who did 100% completeion in Pilotwings, how much time did you take to get gold medals in all the levels and collecting everything in free flight mode.
    Also do you guys rexommend any other game apart from Pilotwings.

    Games I would recommend:
    OoT (I haven't got mine as it's sold out everywhere, but reviews are good)
    DOA Dimensions if you like the boobies punch and kicks
    Mercenaries 3D if you really like the competition

    I'll be doing my full Mercenaries 3D review tonight, with actual images taken with my camera. I'll post the link here when it's done so you'll consider further.

    Think of advance wars/fire emblem you take turns moving then ripping face with guns then leveling your chars at the end of the battles.

    I wonder when they will be lenient on the 3DS price. I am dying to get one but its 250. No way I can afford that. Especially the games.
