Some games are just timeless. This is still just as fun to play now as it was when I was 4 years old and my parents got our first NES. :D

My favorite memory about this game though happened just this year. My oldest daughter is 3 and a half and I made the decision to pass my Gameboy SP down to her. One of the games she plays is this one (it was re-released on gameboy). She can now successfully complete the first level all by herself and she always gets so excited every time she reaches the end of the stage or any time she successfully squashes a goomba (she even knows they're called goomba's!) It's awesome watching her play!

I got this game as a gift from a friend for Christmas. I'm told this is very similar to the Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients, but I've never played that so I can't really comment on any similarities.

The game is a mix of RTS and RPG. There are two teams and your objective is to destroy the other teams base. Throughout the map are several flags that teams can occupy that grant their side either stat bonuses, increased gold production, or portals that spawn waves of NPC controlled soldiers.

Each player picks either an assassin character (you control one character, but your abilities are typically more powerful) or a general who can command a group of minions. The characters seem to be pretty well balanced, and there's a lot of variety between each character so they each have their own feel and play style.

Over all, I really enjoy this game. I've played it with my friend several times as well as a few on-line matches with random people and I've had a lot of fun each time. Unfortunately, the community for this game is all but dead. There have been several times I've logged in to see that there were no open matches on-line to join and ended up just playing against the AI. From what I've read on-line, the game had a horrible launch with several game breaking bugs that chased many people away. It really is too bad, because now that the game is working it really is a great game.

I'd say wait 'til this games is on sale for cheap, then convince a friend or two to buy it with you so you'll have someone to play with.

This is one of my all time favorite games. So many fun memories of playing this multiplayer with my friends and cousins! The music was great, the graphics and animations were cool, the weapon selection was awesome, and best of all up to 3 people could play all at the same time!

This site is making me reminisce about old SNES and NES games a lot, lol.

True story: this game is actually what got my brother-in-law to actually like me. Before we bonded over video games I'm pretty sure he just saw me as some guy who married his sister. :P

I sunk multiple 80+ hour play through's on the original for the PS one, so when I heard they were re-releasing it on the PSP with added content and multiplayer I was sold. I actually got a PSP specifically to play this game. My room mate at the time also got it and we spent way too many hours playing the co-op missions over and over again trying to get the new gear that only drops from the new missions. The new content is actually really fun and really challenging. I just wish the PSP let you play over the internet so I could play this more often with other people.

I actually really like this game, but I can't bring myself to play it a second time. The dialogue is painful to sit through. The actual writing isn't horrible, it's the little emote animations the character do in between everything (and I mean everything) they say. It takes half an hour to talk to an NPC and get your next quest. It's too bad too, because the rest of the game is actually really great.

As an FPS game this is pretty good if a bit generic. The missions are mostly fetch-and-retrieve quests or "kill this X times" and the story line is barely there. However, with the addition of some RPG elements (classes, leveling, and loot) this game gets seriously addicting and this is one of the best co-op games out there in my opinion. You can play off-line 2-player split-screen and up to 4 player co-op on-line and this game really shines. I primarily play this with my wife and we're both having a blast. We're both level 51 and we've completed the main story line and two of the expansions (House of Ned and Claptrap Revolution) and are working our way through the other two expansions now.

It's worth noting that my wife is not your stereotypical gamer, and there's only a few video games she really enjoys playing as much as I do. :) The fact that she's hooked on this game lets you know it will appeal to a wide audience.

There's a few things the game could use some improvement on (such as the inventory screen not scaling well on split screen, or a little more variety in quotes/mobs/loot) but over all this is a great game. I would highly recommend this to anyone, especially since I see the GOTY edition, which includes all the expansions, tends to go on sale fairly often so you should be able to pick it up pretty cheap. Convince a friend to pick up the game with you and go have fun killing stuff. :D

If you liked playing with Legos as a kid, you will love this game. It is basically an endless Lego set. With monsters that try to kill you!
