Marvel Trading Card Game (DS)

Marvel Trading Card Game review (DS)

Reviewed on July 12, 2007

The nice thing about card games is that they allow for an absurd number of characters to be included, even if their roles are nearly meaningless. This lends itself nicely to a world like Marvel, where characters already exist in spades, and don't have to be created to suit the game. Everyone can find a home in a deck of cards.

Attack on Pearl Harbor (PC)

Attack on Pearl Harbor review (PC)

Reviewed on July 11, 2007

Choosing to play as either a Japanese or American pilot, you'll follow the tale of a single air force member from start to finish. The single-player game involves following a clever mission-based campaign mode, fighting the real battles of the war in the South Pacific.

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree (Wii)

Big Brain Academy: Wii Degree review (WII)

Reviewed on July 10, 2007

It's hard to find a title explicitly set on teaching that players will want to get better at and that everyone in the family can enjoy together.

The King of Fighters 2006 (PlayStation 2)

The King of Fighters 2006 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2007

When you buy this game, you will be holding in your hands the game that you really hoped the first one was. You will have the game that you wanted, that you needed, and that you deserved.

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille (Wii)

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille review (WII)

Reviewed on July 06, 2007

It also happens to be a title that was clearly developed with the PlayStation 2 in mind. The game works like a charm on the system, and there are times when the Wii version feels clunky by comparison. Fortunately for the Wii, the inverse is sometimes true. For example, there are many places where Remy will run along a series of wires, or jump across a series of poles suspended high in the air. With the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, itís easy to pull off such daring moves.

The King of Fighters XI (PlayStation 2)

The King of Fighters XI review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

It's the mediocre games that are destined to be forgotten about, confined to the great recycling centre in the sky, leaving a trail of average reviews in their wake. Sadly, King Of Fighters XI is one such game. Check out our review to find out why.

The Legend of Silkroad (Arcade)

The Legend of Silkroad review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

Every single time a player loses a life and either starts their next one or continues the game, not only do all enemies on the screen get knocked down (a common procedure in these games), but they also lose a noticeable amount of life. Technically, it is possible for a player to defeat even the toughest bosses in this game WITHOUT lifting a finger. Sure, itíd be completely lame for anyone to consider this an acceptable way to win fights ó but the simple fact itís possible to advance through powerhouse foes in this manner is shocking to me.

Armored Core 4 (Xbox 360)

Armored Core 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on July 04, 2007

Don't let the number on the end of Armored Core fool you: here we have a series that's run a lot longer than the aforementioned '4' would have you believe. Totalling eleven titles thus far in, FROM Software have steadily marched their mechanical army into the homes of players since the early days of the PSX. Armored Core 12 4 is the first game to feature on the newest wave on console, but itís very much a case of not straying from the beaten track.

Return to Mysterious Island (PC)

Return to Mysterious Island review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

This will please fans of the book, as will how faithful the game remains to Verne's pre-written legacy. While exploring the island, you'll come across key locations such as the mill, Granite House and the littering of sulphuric pools that dot the island. You'll find numerous references to the original party that called the island home as well as an appreciated (if not rather hackneyed) explanation as to how the start of the game links in to the finale of the book.

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille (PlayStation 2)

Disney/Pixar Ratatouille review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 02, 2007

You just never know what a mission will involve until you accept it. Some have you completing mini-games, others have you sliding down huge slides and collecting stars, others have you rushing to the highest points of an area and still others ask you to run toward through cluttered environments while an enemy chases you. If you donít feel like completing a mission at the moment, you donít have to.

Tortuga:Two Treasures (PC)

Tortuga:Two Treasures review (PC)

Reviewed on July 02, 2007

The damage engine in particular is exceptional, as you can see individual sails being ripped, and holes appearing in the sides of the ships due to cannon fire. Honestly, it is quite an impressive sight. The sea itself is handled very well, with sharks circling for snacks in the form of men overboard!

Ancient Wars: Sparta (PC)

Ancient Wars: Sparta review (PC)

Reviewed on July 01, 2007

While Sparta may look nice, it feels as though somebody took great elements from all over the RTS genre and put them all together in one game. It's a case where the whole is less than the sum of its parts, probably due to the fact that most of the parts are quite dated.

Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition (PSP)

Final Fantasy: Anniversary Edition review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 28, 2007

In the original Final Fantasy, frequent encounters meant that players had to carefully execute each dungeon assault. Preparations sometimes required an hour or so of play time, just because each labyrinthine complex posed such a risk. On the PSP, the frequency of those battles has been toned down by something like 50%. Youíll still find moments where your avatar leaves one battle behind and takes only two or three steps before finding another, but such instances are infrequent.

Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm (PlayStation 2)

Atelier Iris 3: Grand Phantasm review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 28, 2007

If you spend too much time aimlessly running around an alterworld, youíll get zapped back to town before accomplishing what you set out to do. Same thing if you get into too many fights against tough foes. If youíre able to beat them in the first two turns of battle, you wonít be penalized any time, but a lot of tougher enemies are capable of lasting longer than that.

Puzzle Scape (PSP)

Puzzle Scape review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 26, 2007

Itís neat that you can move pieces around at will, but the fact that vertical movement isnít possible really stinks. Sometimes, youíll see a killer move but you canít execute it because thereís nothing available on your row. Other times, everything is moving quickly as the stage is about to wind down, and the only block you can use to finish your combination is on the opposite side of the screen.

Touch the Dead (DS)

Touch the Dead review (DS)

Reviewed on June 25, 2007

Zombies have had quite the resurgence in popularity lately. And why not? You can beat them mercilessly, chop off their limbs, set them on fire, and generally vent all your frustrations about humanity without feeling a shred of guilt.

Trackmania United (PC)

Trackmania United review (PC)

Reviewed on June 25, 2007

If you persevere with the single player racing mode, you'll find beautiful scenery, gravity-defying tracks, and uber-fast speeds. If you're unlucky, you may also encounter another issue - crashing into the barriers occasionally causes the player to become impaled right through the scenery.

Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure review (PC)

Reviewed on June 23, 2007

Although there's a loose narrative that ties the adventure together, Safecracker is almost all about cracking safes. And, in spite of my whining, itís actually a lot of fun.

GrimGrimoire (PlayStation 2)

GrimGrimoire review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 22, 2007

Plot plays a large role in GrimGrimoire. Youíre either viewing the story or youíre fighting a battle. Thereís no character customization in between, since you learn skills as you go, at set points in the narrative. Thatís all there is to it. Every time you win a battle, youíre rewarded with a few more pagesí worth of information.

Hot Brain (PSP)

Hot Brain review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 21, 2007

Thatís the hook to Hot Brain: you have to do everything as if your pants were on fire. When youíre in high school and looking at a series of pictures in a test booklet, you arenít cramped for time. You start to think ďWow, I could be out at recess or checking out the cutie in row three.Ē When youíre holding a PSP and a timer is ticking down and your performance will have instant results, the activity you formerly may have found tiresome suddenly becomes interesting.
