There are a few of us who like to take care of things from the site's backlog - old games that never got reviewed - so things like that GBA review are relatively common, although, of course, there are only so many games on that list. :)

We do hiring drives whenever we feel like we've got less people than we need to maintain the quality of coverage we want.  When that happens, one of our news folks posts an article about it.  Or, if you're really interested... let's just say that showing you can take the initiative is a good thing.  Not a guarantee, but a good thing.

How can I go about doing that?

Drop a line to our EIC or PR man (emails on the staff page), saying "Hey, I'd like to join the team.  Here's what I would bring to the table.  Here's a writing sample."  That kind of thing.

Should I use my Eternal Sonata review? It's only my first review I've written so I'm not sure it's good... Would you mind looking at it first and telling me if it's good?

Keep in mind it doesn't equal a guarantee to getting on staff. We've definitely got expectations when it comes to writing, especially from potential reviewers, and much of the staff will see/mull over your writing sample(s) and talk it over. Not discouraging you from trying, you're more than welcome to - I just don't want you to be disappointed in the worst-case scenario.

Yep, as Liz says, there's no guarantee.  Even if I were to look it over and say "that looks good," don't read too much into it.  I'm just one of the guys, with no authority to make decisions on bringing people aboard.

That said, I have kind of led you this far down the path.  If you want to email me your review before you take the step of actually getting in touch with someone who could make those kind of decisions, go for it, and I'll let you know what I think.  Just keep in mind that having me tell you "no" would probably be more personal and less fun than just having the site say "no." :)
