Noddy: A Day in Toyland (Game Boy Advance)

Noddy: A Day in Toyland review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 23, 2006

As Noddy strolls through the scenic locations in the game—which often include town streets, houses and finally a foreboding goblin forest—he’ll sometimes encounter threats to his life meter. These villainous creatures are never all that frightening, with the possible exception of the zombies that suddenly pop out of the soil at inopportune moments.
Franklin the Turtle: Franklin's Great Adventures (DS)

Franklin the Turtle: Franklin's Great Adventures review (DS)

Reviewed on October 22, 2006

Pressing the ‘R’ button will allow you to switch between the two available characters, who have different skills you’ll need to utilize. If you come across a wide body of water, that means the beaver is your buddy at that particular moment. He can dive into the watery depths and, while avoiding contact with fish, work his way through to a switch of some sort or another that will present Franklin with the means to proceed.
Veggie Tales: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (Game Boy Advance)

Veggie Tales: LarryBoy and the Bad Apple review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 17, 2006

LarryBoy and the Bad Apple is a game and needed to find some way to challenge players without forcing them into the evils of mindless slaughter. It found the solution to this quandary in the form of a time limit system. You don’t die. Instead, you’re slowed by hazards like errant basketballs (in one early boss encounter that will remind you of Donkey Kong) or vegetables that have given into the Bad Apple’s wicked ways.
Caesar IV (PC)

Caesar IV review (PC)

Reviewed on October 10, 2006

If Caesar IV is better because it focuses on the smaller details, then it’s also true that it’s better because it forces you to do the same. You have to worry more about things like hygiene now. More importantly, you understand why that is in a tangible sense. When you neglect the bath houses, you’ll see filth spreading through your city.
IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (PlayStation 2)

IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 27, 2006

No matter how excellently you race, your opponents will be right on your tail or just in front of you. Even if you crash and burn, you won’t lose track of them because the game just keeps you moving on its own. That leaves you free to explore IGPX’s primary draw: big robot punches.
Frogger (Xbox 360)

Frogger review (X360)

Reviewed on September 22, 2006

Now when you start out onto the highway and you press ‘up’ on the controller, the frog immediately springs forth from the curb and dives into the adventure. When you press ‘left’ he doesn’t drift up into a truck in the next lane. Instead, he actually moves in the direction you specified! That’s a good improvement.
Time Pilot (Xbox 360)

Time Pilot review (X360)

Reviewed on September 21, 2006

What makes the game stand out from the crowd of its contemporaries is the rather unique notion that you’re not limited to just one static screen, like you would’ve been in Space Invaders or Galaga. You can fly up, down, left or right—or any combination of two directions—and the screen will accommodate your mad piloting skills.
Bomberman (PSP)

Bomberman review (PSP)

Reviewed on September 20, 2006

The single-player campaign is spiced up by the inclusion of an item inventory system. When you blow up the block de jour within a certain area, there’s a pretty good chance it will leave behind a collectable item. You can activate one of these at a time to impact how you clear the screen, while those goodies not in use head to your war chest. Then, in a moment of need, you can utilize one for simple salvation.
Scramble (Xbox 360)

Scramble review (X360)

Reviewed on September 16, 2006

It’s one thing to fly through the numerous regions unscathed. It’s another to destroy most of your enemies. As noble as those enterprises are, though, they come to naught if you can’t keep your fuel supply in sufficient order. You do this by shooting tanks that line the landscape. Oftentimes, they are fairly well guarded.
CivCity: Rome (PC)

CivCity: Rome review (PC)

Reviewed on September 12, 2006

With your first attempts at construction, you can only make tiny huts barely suitable for habitation. Residents demand a well, but they’ll only travel so far to reach it (apparently, crossing the entire city is just too much of a hassle and will prompt them to move to a city other than yours for the sake of eventual convenience).
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (PlayStation 2)

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 09, 2006

While Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was fascinating because of its frank discussion about silly subject matter, the sequel tries for a darker and more mature tone. Its attempts at humor seem almost half-hearted, and not just because of Adell. While it’s true that there are plenty of times you’ll smile at some of the jokes, they’re just not the focus they were previously.
Bomberman - Act: Zero (Xbox 360)

Bomberman - Act: Zero review (X360)

Reviewed on September 05, 2006

Despite all of its (well-intentioned?) efforts to give the series a fresh, hardcore coat of paint, it just doesn’t do enough things right for the aesthetic focus to mean anything more than that you’ve just dropped a wad of cash on a $10 game. The carefully-rendered backgrounds do a great job of slapping you across the face with the notion that this world is desolate, but they don’t add anything to the play mechanics.
Heart de Roommate (PC)

Heart de Roommate review (PC)

Reviewed on August 31, 2006

While it’s true that there is nudity, that’s not so much the focus as you might anticipate. You probably expect Yusuke to sneak around peeking in bathrooms when girls are bathing, spying on shower stalls at school, and maybe raping a few females for good measure. That’s just not the focus, though, and Heart de Roommate is better for it.
Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends: Harvest Time Hop and Fly (DS)

Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends: Harvest Time Hop and Fly review (DS)

Reviewed on August 28, 2006

A second stage type finds you controlling a dragonfly as he soars through the air on a fruit-gathering mission. He has to avoid floating flower seeds and other plants, as well as trickles of water that sometimes fall from above. Bumping into anything lowers his life meter, and splashing into liquid will slow him enough that he’ll miss valuable fruit or bump into something nasty. It’s like a horizontal shooter, only without the bullets or violence.
Garfield and His Nine Lives (Game Boy Advance)

Garfield and His Nine Lives review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 18, 2006

So, suppose you get almost to the end of the stage and you just can’t seem to get in a good position to kick that squirrel. He throws one acorn to many or a bird dive bombs you when you’re not expecting it and you take one hit more than your stamina can withstand. Garfield collapses to the ground and goes to sleep. That’s about as violent as the game ever gets, and what it really means in gamer terms is that you’ve just lost a life.
Civilization IV: Warlords (PC)

Civilization IV: Warlords review (PC)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

When you get a warlord, you then get to decide which available unit you’d like to associate him with. So, let’s say you have a few groups of chariot-riding fiends. He can join them and their power will be boosted accordingly. But they’re hardly invincible, or else the game would be too imbalanced. No, they’re just the slightest bit stronger.
Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light (PSP)

Blade Dancer: Lineage of Light review (PSP)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

Head outside of a town and it’s more of the same, with green plains stretching as far as you can see toward featureless hills broken up only by the occasional tree or stone walkway. There’s also plenty of mist, and you’ll see enemies patrolling. There aren’t random battles in Blade Dancer, just scripted events and other confrontations that you can often avoid simply by running from floating enemy icons (sometimes they’ll even run from you if they’re particularly week).
FlatOut 2 (PC)

FlatOut 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on August 15, 2006

Scattered throughout each of the available tracks are alternate routes you can take if the mood strikes you. Plenty of games have done that before, but usually it’s just something along the lines of "go left around the big tree instead of right." There’s some of that here, but it’s not emphasized so much as it is simply snuck into place.
Pac-Man (Xbox 360)

Pac-Man review (X360)

Reviewed on August 10, 2006

Blinky is riding you like a cowboy on a bronco and you’re doomed if you don’t reach the side warp in time. Every millisecond counts. You round a bend and you need to head left for safety, so you press the button. What happens on-screen? Pac-Man moves down.
Monster House (PlayStation 2)

Monster House review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 08, 2006

The level design takes advantage of each character’s unique attributes. If you’re in control of Chowder, you can expect fewer enemies, yet battles that are every bit as tough because your adversaries can take a lot of damage and keep right on attacking. Jenny, meanwhile, is constantly swarmed by animated chairs and other menaces that will bite savagely into her life meter if she doesn’t keep moving wide of their assault.
