All Game Guide
Nintendo's idea of dusting off relics from their old Game & Watch line of handhelds is truly inspired as the simple, yet challenging games in the series are perfectly suited to the Game Boy format. Game & Watch Gallery 3 features a strong lineup of titles that retro-files and casual gamers alike will enjoy.

Allright, it sounds as if I've been grumbling a lot, but I still adore the G&W Gallery formula, and this third volume is full of it's typical charm. It's just a teeny bit under par compared to the second game in the series, but don't let that stop you from enjoying a perfectly decent dose of classic, Mario-flavored good fun.

Puristen werden sicherlich für Stunden Gefallen an den einfach gestrickten Spielsystemen finden. Und obwohl die modernen Fassungen ihren eigenen Charme haben, machen die unveränderten Originale den größten Reiz der Gallery 3 aus.

Nintendo semble avoir tiré quelques leçons des précédents volets et décide enfin d'étoffer le contenu pour ce troisième épisode. Le reste est à l'image de ce que l'on attend d'un tel jeu, classique mais très efficace grâce notamment à un gameplay aux petits oignons pour quasiment tous les jeux.

It's not going to take a permanent place in the back of your Game Boy's cartridge slot, but Game & Watch is a great diversion -- and each game pak has gotten increasingly better. This one is indeed the best of the bunch, simply because there are so many extras to uncover. Just don't expect anything more than what they are -- simple games for simple technology. We salute you, Gumpei Yokoi.

Nintendo jobbar mycket med återvinning. På gott och ont. Game & Watch Gallery 3 är roligt, om man inte har originalspelen.

At DailyRadar, we're all for exploring roots and remembering where gaming came from. After all, without the past, there could be no future. However, we have to wonder at why the Game and Watch games, Nintendo's first foray into the world of hand-held gaming, would warrant a return - this time on the Game Boy. Game & Watch Gallery 3 contains five of the classic games -- Egg, Turtle Bridge, Green House, Mario Bros., and Donkey Kong Jr. in both classic form (just like the old systems) and updated versions with more graphics and prettier sound. While fun may be had, it only lasts for about five minutes before the playability of the games is worn out. Luckily the game contains secrets and surprises for classic gaming nuts who have the patience to get high scores in the games, but we hardly find it worth the time. Spend your Game Boy gaming dollar on something that wasn't played to death two decades ago.

Au sommaire de ce troisième volet : Egg, Green House, Turtle Bridge, Donkey Kong Jr et Mario Bros. Du beau monde a priori. Mais ne vous y trompez pas : l’action est simpliste et répétitive. Seul le stress causé par le rythme de jeu, rapidement soutenu, présente un semblant d’intérêt. Paradoxalement, les graphismes sont plus cubiques que ceux d’antan, à cause des pixels. Pour ceux qui seraient rebutés par cet aspect, chaque jeu est proposé relooké en couleurs, aux dépends de la visibilité. Pour le même prix, essayez plutôt de trouver les originaux dans des brocantes !
