GCN Video Games2

GameCube is the 6th generation console from Nintendo and a successor to Nintendo 64. It was released on November 18th, 2001 in North America and May 3rd, 2002 in Europe. The heritage of the poor predecessor and lack of clearly specified target (it was hard to tell whether the console was primarily for core gamers or for whole families) resulted in a weak position of GameCube on the market. It was succeeded by Wii in 2006.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc (GCN)

Arcade 02 March 2003

The third installment in the series of adventures of the eponymous friendly hero. Released for PC Windows and consoles, the game is an action platformer. Rayman and his friends, Globox and Murfy, have to face the army of Hoodlums. As you play, you explore new, colorful locations, from beautiful, magical places to ruined areas inhabited by hostile creatures.

The Game Boy Advance release, however, is a 2D platform game utilizing a side view perspective. In this edition, you need to find a cure for Globox, who accidentally swallowed the evil Dark Lum Lord. It is also worth noting that the production is among the visually best ones for Nintendo handhelds.

Medal of Honor: Frontline (GCN)

Action 07 November 2002

Another installment in an FPS series tracing its roots back to the PlayStation console. The Medal of Honor series of war shooters is considered to be the predecessor of the Call of Duty franchise. In Medal of Honor: Frontline, the player assumes the role of lieutenant Jimmy Patterson from the American OSS agency.

In terms of mechanics, the game does not stray much from the formula behind the previous installments, giving the player an opportunity to experience a true war horror, which is intensified by the use of convincing sound effects. In the game, the player participates both in open shootouts as well as stealth-action sequences, making use of a massive number of different weapons representing authentic firearms of the period.
