1.0 out of 5 stars to avoid in the province of Quebec, Dec 5 2011
Let's say your street name is called ''Avenue du Mont-Royal'', well normally you would use the letter ''M'' to search for Mont-Royal on Garmin, TomTom and Google. But not with Magellan, with Magellan everything starts with the letter ''D''.

You have search for ''du Mont-Royal'' with the letter ''D'' first for ''du''

this made this GPS unusable in the streets of Montreal where many streets have a the words du or de preceding the name.

Imagine this in Europe in Spain, Portugal, Italy or France.... all street names would start with the letter ''D'' in the search function of this GPS.

Useless for Montreal, Qc. Stick to Garming or TomTom.

2.0 out of 5 stars no original cuts for the original trilogy, July 20 2011
Buyer beware... no original version for the original trilogy.

So if you are looking for the old movies with the added CG special affects tacked on the Special Edition... this is not for you

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 great SF games for one low price, Sept. 6 2004
I'm giving it 5 stars for the value of the low price for two excellent fighting games.
Street Fighter III 3rd Strike is arcade perfect, this game is a masterpiece, my favorite 2D fighter.
Hyper Street Fighter II is Super Street Fighter II Turbo with the ability to chose the diffrent versions of each SF2 incarnation (for example, you can select Ryu from any of the 5 SF2 version, so you can pick you favorite one).
2 great SF game, one cheap low price, it's worth it for any SF fan

1.0 out of 5 stars A game of 3 levels, July 24 2004
Donkey Kong is an arcade classic great and a milestone in gaming history
But I do not understand why Nintendo did not release a Compilation of it's many early arcade games... or a compilation of it's early NES classics
Instead, Nintendo releases single games in individual seperate carts at unreasonably high prices
An Arcade Compilitation of Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr, Donkey Kong III and Mario Bros would of been much more apreciated than a singular NES version of Donkey Kong wich isn't even an arcade Perfect version
Video Games consumers should not buy this game or any of the individual Classic NES series when Nintendo could of crammed all of those Classics into 2 or 3 carts instead
for shame on you Nintendo!

1.0 out of 5 stars if u liked SF2 the animated movie, then you will hate this, July 27 2002
SFA the movie is a hard to watch anime movie. It is horrible, it has nothing to do with storylines from the games and the characters in the movie get off character completly; especially Zangief who is totally off charcter.
Akuma is featured on the cover but he he's barely in the movie, there isn't even one fight scene with Akuma... rip off.
The hole story line with Ryu's fake borther Shun is really anoying "big brother, big brother".
Then when you think you will see interesting scenes with Adon, Birdie, Guy and Sodom... you get robbed insted with a bad story and plot and one of the worst villains.
The movie has nothing to do with the SFA games... keep away

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent soundtrack, ADRIAN!, Jan. 29 2000
This soundtrack is great, contains 80's rock tunes from the Rocky movies (such as "Eye Of The Tiger"). James Brown will always be the King of Soul ("Living In America)".Vince DiCola's instrumentals from Rocky IV are heroic and great. And of course, this CD contains two renditions of Rocky's main theme: "Gonna Fly Now"
*note: this CD was released before Rocky V, so it doesn't contain the rap song: "Go for it"
This Rocky Story CD just as Rocky himself personify what the American Dream is about.
ADRIAN!
