DragonBall Z - Supersonic Warriors (U)(Rising Sun)GBA
One of the better fighting game available. Control is exceptional and there is no confusing mechanism to it. Straight forward fighting game. You can play each saga, or play through one character in unique storyline, distorted from original storyline to fit more fights in. There are other modes available, such as Z-battle where you battle a group of heroes and villians. Buy mode in the game is hit and miss, as you need to buy characters to access them, but it does make you want to play more just to be able to play different characters. Overall, it is worth playing it at least once. It is enjoyable fighting game.

This one is bigger and has more powerful weapons and you can level up more and there are more djinn waiting to be found. Like the last game this game has turn based battles, and the wonderful story continues. In this one though your controlling the other characters and seeing everything from thier point of view.

Kirby - Nightmare in Dreamland (U)(Mode7)GBA
Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland is a remake of Kirby's Adventure for the NES. The plot? From Wikipedia: "After Kirby wakes up from his after-lunch nap without having any dreams, he goes to the Fountain of Dreams to investigate. In doing so, he discovers that King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod, the source of power to the Fountain of Dreams, and broken it into seven pieces...Without the Star Rod, all of the inhabitants of Dream Land are becoming restless and unable to dream. Kirby decides to track down the fragments of the Star Rod and bring them back to the Fountain of Dreams in order to restore everyones' dreams." The remake adds, along with updated graphics and sound, the ability to play as fan favorite Meta Knight. I highly recommend it if you like bright, colorful platformers. Also, if the Mode7 intro is annoying you, use GBATA to remove it. Please note that the fixed rom will be named "output-[whatever the rom name is].gba", so make sure to play that one, or else the intro will still be there!
