The word "brilliant" isn't often associated with the word "pinball," but once you pick up Nintendo's new Odama ($50), you'll be surprised by how much fun you're having smacking your balls around. The game lets you fire the huge, cannonball-like Odama onto battlefields full of Japanese soldiers, using the flippers to mow down your enemies and their buildings. While the ball's wreaking havoc, an included microphone lets you command your own army men to conquer each level, then move on to the next. Crazy? Maybe. But it's awesome. If you have a GameCube, you should have this, too.
