The gamecube is hard to come across these days if you are looking for one in good condition and the games are really hard to get but xbox and ps2 didnt get the brilliant design of the handle so you can transport it and they are so small you can put them in a small space out the way as a playstation you would have to stand it up and it would get in a mess.There is one more bad point and it is im on my second gamecube now the first one i had was in 2003 to 2005 and the second one ive got now...

Good points on the gamecube(Although all of these are debatable, but most are the majority of opinions)
. Great controller, comfortable grip, an easy access to all buttons.
. Quality control, although nintendo missed out a lot of third party support but because of this it also had the least of amount of shitty games which has got to be worth something.
. Great line-up.
. nintendo could've had it's cake and eaten it too and provide more online capabilities and... (read more)

Compact, controller feels good in your hand, goes online, good graphics, you can get a wireless controller.
If your gamecube is old some games act weird, fan collects lots of dust, if you dismantle it, it sometimes smells funny [not funny haha!, funny weird] but that doesn't matter!
Apart from the some what weird bad points it's an excellent console.
Therefore I do recommend the Nintendo GameCube. (read more)

The great forgotten system! It has great graphics, it is very portable (nowhere near the heftiness of the xbox or the ps2 before it was slimmed down.) No other system will allow you to play Mario or Zelda and those are two of the greatest VG franchises ever and continue to be. Super Mario Sunshine might just be the best Mario Game EVER! Resident Evil 4 is one of the greatest games I have ever seen or played. You will play it for 10 hours or more and not even get to the second disc! Lastly I... (read more)

I've seen complaints about backwards compatibility, and that it doesn't play DVD's.
First off, how do you expect the Gamecube to be backwards compatible, when the last console used cartridges? When the Gamecube was made, CD's were a much better medium of storage, and took much less space. If you expected Nintendo to keep using cartridges just for backwards compatibility, you're nuts. If you really want to play the old games, buy an N64, they don't cost much at yard sales.
Secondly, of... (read more)

The Nintendo GameCube is absolutely not the best console out of the XBOX and PS2. You cannot play DVD's, which is a huge disappointment, nor can you play CD's, which I don't care for as much because of MP3 players and iPod's etc. A good point is that it is inexpensive and comes bundled with games. Also, you can play classics like Mario and Yoshi. However, it WILL NOT PLAY N64, games unlike the PS2 which plays PSONE games. The graphics aren't the best, and for the size I guess it would be...

As a mother of a pre-adolescent son, my main concern was to purchase a product that would allow my son to play video games that did not promote any of the forbidden topics listed in the review guidelines, would allow him to have fun on a rainy day when he couldn't get outside to play, was more interactive than watching TV and provided some eye-hand coordination activity. All the research my husband and I did indicated that the Nintendo GameCube was the best option and had the best choice of... (read more)

I have always been into computer games as my brother was a mad fan and ALWAYS brought the newest one you can get. I brought the Nitendo Game Cube last year and I am totally hooked. The controller is really comfortable (sometimes controllers just dont feel right) and the graphics are great. I like the wide variety of games available but I wish they were just a little bit cheaper sometimes. All in all though - WELL WORTH GETTING!!!! (read more)

The Nintendo GameCube is one of the best gaming systems Nintendo has created. There are nice games available for it (a little expensive, but they're worth the money), but the Game Boy Advance SP has almost the exact same games at a cheaper price. You can't get Mario Party or any of the war games, but I would still recommend getting a Nintendo DS or Game Boy Advance SP over a GameCube. (read more)

Nintendo GameCube is the console of choice for multiplayer fun. I bought it on relaese day saved up for 1 year plus. I only own a Gamecube and N64 before it. The best console form the best makers, PS2 and X box controllers are terrible to use (only 2 on PS2), graphics aren't anything special not as good as the GC's.
Why is this console not the market leader.
I am sticking with Nintendo they make reliable great multiplayer consoles.
No others can compare in gameplay. (read more)

The Gamecube has got to be one of the most perfect gaming consoles ever made - Before the Cube I had never owned a Nintendo - I started my gaming career on the ZX Spectrum, progressed to an Amiga 1400, then a Master System, then a Mega Drive, followed by a PS1 and then finally by a PS2 (throughout this list you can also add around 12 different PC's and a few handhelds so all in all I would say I'm pretty experienced when it comes to gaming).

The Nintendo GameCube has a better graphics card than PS2 and a better processor but who needs graphics anyway? Cube has the best gameplay out of all the 3 consoles.

I will be honest, the graphics on the Nintendo Gamecube are not the best on the market. The XBOX does have a general superiority, but not by much. In fact, when I bought Resisdent Evil 4, I saw the best graphics I have ever seen from a gaming console. The controller is the most user friendly. It is not the BEST choice for first person shooters, but the controller still performs very well. Nintendo also has a wireless controller avilable. Most importantly, the games available on the Gamecube... (read more)

I love this Nintendo GameCube system. I haven't had one for very long, but it's the best. So many great games along with an easy to use controller. There are so many exculsive games on it, inlcuding Super Smash Bros. Melee, all the Zelda games, F-Zero GX, Mario Kart Toadstool Tour, Mario Kart Double Dash, Mario Power Tennis, and much, much more. The other systems like to share there games with other systems. That isn't very smart unless they share them with Nintendo, then it's ok. Overall,... (read more)

The Nintindo Gamecube is a very good console. The controller is very easy to use and depending on the game is good for all ages. It has many games to choose from, good for little children and up to adults. This console is very good. The only thing is that the discs are tiny. This means you can't play DVDs or CDs. But because the discs are smaller believe it or not it hold a whole lot more memory and allows Nintindo to make even better games. This means better graphics more memory and more... (read more)

First off, online IS NOT everything, which is a good job for the Nintendo Gamecube. When it comes down to it, it is all about gameplay and fun factor. In my opinion, the Gamecube (GC) has both.
The graphics in this system are very polished and well done. Overall, much better than the PS2 and almost as good if not as good as the XBox. The controller was very comfortable for almost every game made for the system.
Even though there aren't many titles out for the GC, there are many exclusives... (read more)

Melee, Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Super Monkey Ball, Viewtiful Joe, Eternal Darkness, The new Legend of Zelda, I think Resident Evil 4's graphics are better than any Xbox game I've seen, if you have any siblings or friends and Super Smash Bros.

The Nintendo Gamecube's brilliant design makes this a unique console, especially the tiny discs. Good presentation, typically nintendo!!
Unfortunately due to the small discs the storage space is smaller than the usual DVD media. But these small discs are giving software pirates big headaches!!

Nintendo - you have messed up AGAIN! this time with the Gamecube (GC)! Rather than use DVDs like the other consoles, the GC uses tiny CDs the size of a digestive biscuit. This means you can't play music CDs or DVDs in the drive. Why Nintendo? WHY?! Just like the N64's cartridges in an age of CD technology, the know-it-alls at Nintendo Towers have opted to use a pointless alternative in an attempt to combat piracy and be a bit different for the sake of it. It has worked to some extent, but... (read more)

I recently bought myself a Nintendo Gamecube and didn't really think it was going to be nearly as good as I thought. By far, the Gamecube has much better graphics than the PS2 considering I own a PS2 and I can see the difference between some of the games out on both consoles. People think that the Gamecube is a kids' console but it's not. Yeah, ok, maybe the Gamecube hasn't got as many games as the other two consoles (X-box and PS2) but it has got some really good games and a lot of exclusives. (read more)

If you want a genuine gaming machine for gamers, buy GAMECUBE. If you want a multi-function "does a thousand things none of them particularly well or quickly" machine get an x-box or ps2.
There isn't room enough here to tell you fully how much I prefer my GC to the other consoles I've owned (sold both my PS2 and X box, as they really are not gaming machines, and one is made by Microsoft). The loading times are easily a tenth of the other two machines (except for a few poorly programed... (read more)

The Gamecube might not be right for everybody. If you want Grand Theft Auto, Halflife or Deus Ex your looking in the wrong place. The Gamecube however has a range of fantastic exclusive titles such as Metroid Prime, Eternal Darkness and Zelda (don't let the cartoonish graphics put you off).
A lot of the big titles appear on all three of the current consoles and it may suprise you to know that the graphics processor is more powerful than that of the PS2 so Gamecube versions of the games... (read more)

Nintendo has come up with a little beast, after the failing of the Nintendo 64, they have created a mini marval.

The Cube is the most versatile and underrated console on the market. Most console magazines give its games (Metroid, Mario, Starfox, Pikmin, etc.) far higher scores than it's competitors, and recommend it to the fullest, but seem to skimp on coverage. Even without the ability to play DVD's, it is still the best choice. You can practically buy a DVD player with the money you save, and the Cube won't break as fast because it isn't spinning DVD's.
