Tried it on the weekend mate - very impressed. Looks excellent for a GC game, its held up very nicely. Wasnt really what i was expecting so its surprised me quite a lot - thanks for the recommendation.
As far as the game collection goes, it has already moved onto the next stage and a new console : The Playstation 2.
The mrs got a me a new, sealed one for my birthday last week and, as sad as it sounds, im tempted to leave it in the box and maybe try and get some new, factory sealed games to go with it.
Could be worth a small fortune in a few years....
