Crimson Room (DS)

Crimson Room review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

A majority of frequent internet users (gamers in particular) has played, or at least heard of the Crimson Room series of flash “escape-the-room” games by Toshimitsu Takagi. Hosted on approximately four trillion flash gaming websites, you play a character who awakens within a room and has to use household items littered about or deceptively hidden as a means to escape. Such a simple premise has a catch, and that is the difficulty – or simply the absurdity of the solutions and item placements. Pan...

Geometry Wars: Galaxies (DS)

Geometry Wars: Galaxies review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

I'm not a fan of Geometry Wars. It was a fun premise that did not grip me - neither on the Marketplace or in PGR – a game that seemed to lack any real structure beyond ‘blow stuff up to get a high score'. But for some bizarre reason I've given this game a seven. Why the hell would I do that?

Futari wa Precure Max Heart: Danzen! DS de Precure Chikara o Awasete Dai Battle review (DS)

Reviewed on February 24, 2008

They’re cute, aren’t they? The characters in Pretty Cure, I mean. Actually, they’re too cute; they cross that line that separates being adorable and downright irritating. One of them acts as a tomboy (whose costume, ironically enough, sports a ridiculous amount of frills and hearts), another is a brilliant and clumsy second fiddle, and the third is some pink-laden child with disturbingly long hair. They are a group of high school girls that can use their cell phones to transform in...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS)

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 18, 2008

It's a good thing the familiar characters from the three previous Advance Wars games didn't return for this fourth installment; most of them would be dead. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin takes place immediately after a devastating meteor shower snuffs out virtually the entire population. Massive clouds of ash and dust now blot out all sunlight, leaving those remaining to scavenge the rotting corpse of society for supplies and shelter, fighting against nature and each other for survi...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 18, 2008

What do you do when the world is devastated by meteorites? Band together the survivors and work toward resurrecting civilization? Nope - you keep on fighting, duh! The game has a crack at this untested scenario in the latest iteration of the Advance Wars series. Gone are the cute and cuddly tanks that would not look out of place at a kids birthday party; missing, presumed dead are the old COs (not Andy! I hear you scream in terror) and in its place is a bleak and barren world, effectively brough...

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS (DS)

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on February 14, 2008

It's easy to get sidetracked, since there's so much to do. For example, you might be asked to build cages for animals that all come from Africa. Of course, some of those critters can be pretty expensive, so you have to build up revenue by first showing less costly beasts to your happy patrons. Then along the way, you might start going overboard with the placement of vending booths and benches. Suddenly, a year has gone by and you haven't made any progress on those primary objectives. Disaster looms.

Fans of the series will find Days of Ruin the perfect sequel, but those who don’t enjoy the slow pace and steep difficulty curve won’t find anything new to tempt them.

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 05, 2008

You get used to it eventually. The smell, I mean. The stench of decaying bodies and burnt flesh. It’s especially bad during the day; as the heat rises off the ground, it makes everything rot so much faster. You can’t avoid it, either. There will always be corpses, no matter where you look. Millions of them, piled high in these ruined cities. Most of them don’t even look human anymore; just maggot-ridden bags of meat with their eyes eaten out and their bones exposed. If you accidentally step on o...

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (DS)

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2008

As Puzzle Quest opens, the citizens of medieval fantasy land Etheria are merrily rejoicing in having gone for hundreds of years without an undead invasion, and if you don’t already know where this is going then this must be your first RPG; in which case, welcome to the genre!

Contra 4 (DS)

Contra 4 review (DS)

Reviewed on January 25, 2008

Heroes aren't what they used to be. There haven't been any good, mind-blowingly badass characters in years. Sure, there's the occasional exception like Solid Snake, but the vast majority of today's protagonists are either a bunch of generic gunmen clad in fancy armored suits or whiny, self-absorbed, spiky-haired teenagers. So we get better stories and understand these new characters' perspectives and motivations. That doesn't necessarily make a good game. What happened to guys like Mike Haggar,...

World Snooker Championship: Season 2007-08 (DS)

World Snooker Championship: Season 2007-08 review (DS)

Reviewed on January 19, 2008

I lost my game 15-80, owing my points to a few lucky “Smash & Hope” shots and a high break of eight when I managed to pot a red and then the black. The few shots I took only really existed to draw the ire of the commentator who had heaped nothing but praise on my opponent. This is because the control scheme can politely be described as ‘tricky’.

MX vs. ATV Untamed (DS)

MX vs. ATV Untamed review (DS)

Reviewed on January 15, 2008

I wasn’t prepared for such a devastating trip through the portable chop-shop. I only managed to squeeze about four minutes of reckless fun before Untamed and its constricted tracks morphed into an exercise in repetition. There’s a fine line where a game stops being challenging and starts feeling like work.

Crazy Pig (DS)

Crazy Pig review (DS)

Reviewed on January 07, 2008

Crazy Pig is a bit of an enigma, and by an enigma I mean a flat-out lie. Billed as a dual game that allows you to raise a piglet from scratch and play a slew of mini-games, the title only really delivers on the latter promise. The raising of your porker is little more than throwing food and drink at it when the hunger and thirst levels are low, making a fuss of it when it's sad or cleaning the messy little bugger periodically.

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command (DS)

Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command review (DS)

Reviewed on January 01, 2008

Plasma cannons were so utterly devastating to an area that I didn’t have to bother hitting the target. Walls and barricades became momentary nuisances as my squad razed the battlefield. With the plasma cannon’s range I avoided Overwatch and stomped through mission after mission with barely a scuff on my armor.

Mega Man ZX Advent (DS)

Mega Man ZX Advent review (DS)

Reviewed on December 30, 2007

With the Mega Man series quickly approaching a triple-digit number of games, it's no secret that the Blue Bomber has been in an absolutely ridiculous number of games. It's also no secret that many of the hero's recent entries have been noticeably lacking for one reason or another. Mega Man ZX Advent represents a return to grace for the series and is one of the most enjoyable action-adventure titles on the DS.

Harvest in the Heartland (DS)

Harvest in the Heartland review (DS)

Reviewed on December 29, 2007

Harvest in the Heartland is surprisingly fun for the first few hours, and hardcore Harvest Moon nuts may want to give it a look just out of curiosity, to see how an American developer approaches what has until now been an exclusively Japanese genre.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on December 28, 2007

When Nintendo tries something new with the Zelda series, it usually pays off. Moving to three dimensions in Ocarina of Time resulted in what many consider to be the best Zelda game of all time, and experimenting with an ultra-cute graphical style worked surprisingly well in The Wind Waker. Nintendo's at it again in the direct sequel to The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass. What sets this apart from past games is that the entire g...

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 22, 2007

This game is a great addition to the whole Mario Kart series and I think that it's one of the best. I enjoyed this game a lot and I definitely got what I paid for. Not only is this game single player, but multi player too. Single card, multi card, and Wi-Fi are all available on this game so whether or not your friends have it, they'll still be able to appreciate the fun that this provides. However, on Wi-Fi, there isn't as much detail as there is with multi/single card download play. When people...

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on December 21, 2007

As each Zelda game releases there seems to be a celebration among gamers. I’m not a person to miss a Zelda game and I went through a roundabout way of playing this game. I bought the game despite I didn’t have a working DS. After asking some buddies from afar to send me their DS’s I managed to acquire one. A Link to the Past is my all-time favorite game in the series while Wind Waker is probably my favorite 3D adventure. When I first saw the trailer to Phantom Hourglass with Wind Waker visua...

Drawn to Life (DS)

Drawn to Life review (DS)

Reviewed on December 21, 2007

I’m a sucker for a solid create-a-character mode, to the point where it often distracts me from getting anything else done in a game. I could make wrestlers for hours without doing any actual wrestling, or spend a day assembling a football team full of wide receivers that are seven-foot-four, 400 pounds, and can outrun a Kenyan. And it isn’t just sports games that reel me in – games that rely solely on the user to create the protagonist don’t escape this curse, either. I couldn’t tell you the ma...
