    Well I am at a hard diccision; what game should I buy?

    I already have:

    Samurai Warrior
    Super Street Fighter
    Nintendogs+Cats

    But here is a list what I could chose from directly(others are not interesting.)

    Super Monkey Ball 3D: I played some early games on iPod and Ds, liked those!
    Ridge Racer: iPod version, played once but I dunno about this one, I like Need For Speed.
    Lego Star Wars: the DS version is okay, I played with real LEGO but I began to hate LEGO so I did sell my shit. Still I did like the Complete Saga on the XBOX.
    Pilot Wings: Hmm WUHU Island, maybe not my game is it? Wooho I have Sports Resort...
    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars: Looks like Fire emblem, I am a huge FE fan! Still I dunno.

    I did gave some comments on the games, could you help me out? Atleast say which one is really dumb and why. [​IMG]

    And moderators; any topic like this seen before?

    Absolutely DO NOT buy Super Monkey Ball, it is dreadful.
    The level design is plagued by monotony and repetition, an absolute lack of challenge stemming of a gimmicky stage design technique of "make it look like something overhead, then stick a bunch of rails, bumpers and rough patches on it"

    On top of that the game is utterly lacking in surprises and originality and can be beaten in just an hour and a half, no joke, NOT WORTH £30 IN THE LEAST, and that was discounted!

    They also included sub-games, Monkey Race and Monkey Fight, shallow and clunky knock-offs of Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers.

    Seriously, Super Monkey Ball 3D was even worse than the iPod versions, maybe it might've been better had I played it on the tilt controls instead of the analogue pad, but it's clear this launch title is an absolute stinker, shame too since aesthetically it looks and sounds pretty nice, and also controls pretty well.

    I found lego star wars fun to play but for me the loading times were long and for some reason the game jammed sometimes dunno if it was just me. completed to story in less than a day so if you want something to replay i would not get it but its fun to get all the minikit and red bricks. I found that its a lot better than the versions on the DS the graphics are better and its easier to control.

    I would definately go for Lego Star Wars. Its a lot of fun (especially if you have been watching the Clone Wars TV show), and has plenty of replay value to try and get 100% completion.
    As previous post said, do NOT waste time and money on Super Monkey Ball, its soooo bad.
    Pilot Wings just seems to be a game to show off the 3D and is no challenge at all.
    Not sure about Ridge Racer, but again, I would say that it would not have as much play for your money as Star Wars.

    I think both of those games are top down view are'nt they? I remember thinking that they did'nt look very appealing anyway. I would avoid to be honest.

    Ghost Recon is top down and is supposedly fun (that is, if you're into SRPGs)
    Splinter Cell seems to be BAD.

    Eh, I voted Lego Star wars. Fun games.
    Super monkey ball is my second choice, the others are crap.

    Lego Star Wars III is exceptionally good. I bought it yesterday, have already spent 3 hours on it, and am only 5.6%. That's a lot to go. I got my friend into buying it and he loves it too. ;D

    I normally get bored of Lego games, but this one is amazing. Period.

    Shadow Wars has the second highest 3DS metacritic score (76).

    To be honest, I'm a little fan of the Lego Star Wars games. I have no clue how they play out on the 3DS but from the first few released on consoles, I can tell you they are a lot more fun than I'd imagine they would be.

    I'd say either Lego Star Wars or Ghost Recon: SW

    Actually, Advance Wars is more of a pure Turn-Based-Strategy game, imo. There's very little RPG gameplay elements (read: practically none) in the franchise.

    Not trying to nitpick, just making sure that people trying to make this decision themselves know that SRPGs are a little different from TBSs.
