Demon's Souls (PlayStation 3)

Demon's Souls review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 15, 2009

The Kingdom of Boletaria was once a prosperous and advanced society, founded as it was on "soul magic" - or the art of drawing on souls to cast powerful spells. But the lords of the realm grew decadent, and without the discipline and restraint needed, awakened a mythical beast, "the Old one", reducing Boletaria to rubble, and leaving a host of demons to feast on the souls of the remaining population.

Defenders of Dynatron City (NES)

Defenders of Dynatron City review (NES)

Reviewed on May 15, 2009

As bad as Defenders of Dynatron City was, it was just a totally unfair judgement call away from being middling to good. Somehow, though, a game that tries so hard at being weird just wouldn't WANT to be average, if games had feelings. The description promises "Nobody's normal...six really cool superheroes...and an awful lot of enemies." The imagination is there, with Gatomorphs and Loogiehawks and some amusing backgrounds. About what you'd expect from the folks who brought you Sam and Max...

Excitebots: Trick Racing (Wii)

Excitebots: Trick Racing review (WII)

Reviewed on May 12, 2009

Each time you manage a long power slide, you could earn anywhere from one to five stars. Launching into the air and staying there for a lengthy period of time also yields a similar reward, as does weaving between perilous stands of trees or even crashing spectacularly. There's a substantial bonus if you cross the finish line first, but the person who wins is ultimately the one who bags the most stars.

Touch Detective 2˝ (DS)

Touch Detective 2˝ review (DS)

Reviewed on May 11, 2009

As a budding super sleuth, Mackenzie has successfully recovered many missing objects, but now she's finally found her inner voice. In her previous adventure, the titular Touch Detective stared out blankly from the top screen, with wide eyes and an ashen face. Right beside her, a perpetually empty thought-bubble sucked in all the energy of the otherwise crazy cast and wacky cases. Every moment was hers to shine, and she failed miserably. In Touch Detective 2˝, that bubble is fil...

Demigod review (PC)

Reviewed on May 10, 2009

Though Demigod is an exceptional offering with unique strengths, one that does a fantastic job of straddling the genre fence and moving gaming forward, the multi-player headaches beg the question: is it ultimately worth buying?

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride (DS)

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride review (DS)

Reviewed on May 10, 2009

Narrative strength is one of two important elements that make Dragon Quest V such an adventure. Monster recruitment is the other. As you wander the land, you'll defeat all manner of beasts that should be familiar to those who have been enjoying the franchise from the beginning. Sometimes, you'll have the opportunity to add those creatures to your army. They'll fight by your side, whether you choose a feisty little brownie or a healer or even a fierce golem. Much of the game is spent with only a few human companions available—as dictated by the furiously twisting plot—so your path to success requires that you cultivate working relationships with monsters.

Deathsmiles review (X360)

Reviewed on May 09, 2009

With so many entertaining scenes, it's clear that Cave put a lot of care and attention towards creating an appealing new world. They attempted something similar a while back with Mushihimesama, but this time the gameplay lives up to their previous best efforts.

Breath of Fire (SNES)

Breath of Fire review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 08, 2009

The eight characters that compose Ryu's party all have their own specific uses and abilities, which makes backtracking very useful. Many early-game dungeons have their share of locked doors and crumbling walls hiding rooms full of treasure that isn't accessible until certain characters have joined. While it might not be mandatory to retrace your steps to grab most of these goodies, many are very useful —  ranging from stat-enhancing items to equipment that's likely better than what was at that last shop you visited.

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: The Last Resort (PC)

Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: The Last Resort review (PC)

Reviewed on May 08, 2009

There's a slightly uncomfortable predictability about The Last Resort, this second instalment of Telltale Games' Wallace & Gromit adaptation. The first episode, Fright of the Bumblebees, impressed with its faithful aesthetic and witty dialogue, but the mundanity of its first half left a little to be desired. In The Last Resort, you'll spend the first hour collecting things, and the second hour on customer service duty. Hmm.

Elven Legacy (PC)

Elven Legacy review (PC)

Reviewed on May 06, 2009

If you're a turn-based strategy fan looking for something new, a Fantasy Wars fanatic or even a real-time regular who appreciates the RISK-type features many titles feature on their overworld map, Elven Legacy is for you. It sucks you in and dupes you into playing hours at a time, whilst managing to make every minute enjoyable. Whilst some elements such as the unvaried objectives and linear path may put a lot of people off, the game compensates by throwing in exciting fights and a fascinating plot.

Plants vs. Zombies (PC)

Plants vs. Zombies review (PC)

Reviewed on May 05, 2009

The addictive nature of Plants vs. Zombies comes as a bit of a surprise given the generally repetitive nature of its design. There are several available modes of play that switch things up with varying degrees of success, but they almost all come down to the same basic task: keep your brains in your cranium! Even the generous assortment of zombies that you'll face and the extensive cache of weapons at your disposal wind up feeling limited after awhile, but there's a good chance that you won't even care.

Mother (NES)

Mother review (NES)

Reviewed on May 04, 2009

God bless Demiforce. If it weren’t for them, RPG nerds would never have had the opportunity to save the world from an unnamed threat with nothing but such ordinary items as baseball bats, frying pans and bottle rockets. They would never cruise through the desert in a tank, much less fight a massive robot blocking your path with one. They would never get the chance to survive taunting from hippies or exhaust gases from possessed vehicles.

Batman Forever (Genesis)

Batman Forever review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 04, 2009

In 1995, the kooks at Warner Bros. Studios decided it would be ok to crap all over the re-vamped Batman film franchise (established by Tim Burton and Michael Keaton), by changing director, and even the lead actor, as if Bruce Wayne were a suave, confident British Secret Agent with a steady pimp hand and a penchant for one-liners. This movie tragedy was henceforth known as Batman Forever. To this day, people still ask, “Forever what?” What is the answer to this baffling mystery? Some film ...

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series The Final: Dural (Saturn)

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series The Final: Dural review (SAT)

Reviewed on May 04, 2009

If, like me, you haven’t played a lot of Virtua Fighter, you might not know who Dural is. In this case your first several seconds spent with her portrait series will be rife with confusion as you try to come to terms with the fact that what you are watching is a series of pictures of a textureless CG model. Horror will truly set in when you realize that that’s what Dural is... a bad CG model which left its skin at home. Virtua Fighter fans call her a robot.

Halo 2 (Xbox)

Halo 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 04, 2009

I never cared for Rainbow Six. While the idea of leading your own personal squad through an unrelenting series of skirmishes was right up my alley, Ubi Soft's acclaimed series focused far too much on nitty-gritty details and meticulous planning for my twitch-happy taste. That's probably why I loved the original Halo so much; having a bunch of Marines backing up your bloody rampages was enthralling, and the minimal amount of control you had over their behavior kept the game from...

Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II (PSP)

Air Conflicts: Aces of World War II review (PSP)

Reviewed on May 03, 2009

Similar to the setup of a racing game, each individual mission belongs to a series of missions. This seems like an interesting presentation until you discover that the consequence of losing is also similar to that of a racing game. When you die, the mission is over…for now. Rather than being given the opportunity to try it again, you’re automatically taken back to the main menu, at which point you can now select the campaign mode and start again.

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link review (NES)

Reviewed on May 03, 2009

One could almost say that the serious gaming world can be cleanly divided into two groups: those who love Zelda games and would be devastated if Nintendo were to make any large-scale renovations, and those who gave up on the series a long time ago because it refused to evolve. I fit pretty firmly into the former category; Zelda is my favorite video game franchise, and while the formula has been repeated endlessly, it’s a formula that almost always works and hasn’t gotten old. Then ...
