Overview:

Game and Watch Gallery 4 is a collection of classic Nintendo Game and Watch games. Each game has the classic mode, which plays identical to the original game and watch, and the modern mode which is a modern take on the game (updated graphics, new effects, etc). This particular collection consists of 6 right off the bat, 6 more that are unlockable, and on top of that roughly 8 more without the enhanced mode available.

Review:

Game and Watch Gallery 4 is a collection of a bunch of Nintendo's infamous Game and Watch games as well as updated modes for each version. The concept of the games are so simple that they become an addiction. This is a series of ''6'' games with ''4'' different modes. (Well there's actually an extremely difficult star mode) The object of each game is simple. You just tap a button. There! Lets take Fire for example. What you do in Fire is you move your characters back and forth and catch the falling people. Not to complicated. BUT IT'S SO ADDICTING!

Now the game and watches have 2 modes and 2 difficulties in each mode. There is the classic mode and the modern mode. The classic mode is a direct port of the game and watches. In other words, black figures. The modern mode has better graphics and some new innovations, but none that take away from the ''classic feeling''.

All the game and watches come with an explanation for how to play them. The games also come with tips and tricks for them. So in other words, you won't have to try to figure out how to play.

Now the graphics for the Game and Watches definitely vary. As you can tell from the classic mode and the modern, there is a HUGE difference. Now, the classics is very sharp but is just black crystalline characters. The modern mode graphics on the other hand, are great! There not the best graphics but still great; gameplay over graphics any day.

The sound and music in the Game and Watch Gallery 4 are superb. They fit the mood and the style of each came. Even the beeps in the classic mode sound great! The down fall is that the music is only in the modern mode. That's not really a down fall though considering that they are meant to be direct ports. Also, if you dislike the music, you have the option of turning it off.

The replay value in this game is extraordinary! There are many unlockables that are featured in the game to have you playing for hours to come. Some include more game and watches, the star modes, the game and watch history, and much more! Also the games are just pure fun and never get old. It is always fun to go back and try to get the high score.

To sum things up nicely, Game and Watch Gallery 4 is a great collection of arcade style games. It's a nice romp through the past where games weren't about defeating the final boss, but instead obtaining highscores. If you are a fan of arcade games, by all means pick this up. If you need something that is easily accessible and can quickly wet your gaming appetite, look no further. If you are expecting something that will blow your mind with innovation, you have come to the wrong place.
