Wonder why Sonic N got such a low score? It's the same as Sonic Advance, which got an 8.something.

I'm gonna get to try an N-Gage in a few days, as my manager just got one for free.

I wouldn't give $300 for a portable game system. I had a hard time paying $100 for a GBA SP.

I'm not surprised at the scores. The N-gage is great example of awful design and it's quite obvious they didn't consult any "gamers" when they designed it.

eg I wonder who was the genius that decided it would be a good idea to have to remove the back panel and the battery to insert a new game.

Anyone else find Game Informer to be a little more on the "we advertise things" side, especially in previews? I muchly prefer my trusty EGM, but I got a Game Informer subscription for a dollar net when I bought some stuff at GameStop...so yeah.

Was playing with a few in-store N Gages today, there were two set up in V Megastore. The first one was locked up at the tomb raider game menu and wasn't accepting input and the 2nd one would drop back to the [ GAME ] menu of the OS if you skipped through the ingame text too quick. Is this indicative of the reliability we can expect? :?
Oh and for what it's worth, it wasn't all bad as I found the D pad to be more useful than I had expected but the buttons are still rather clunky.
