Luminous Arc (DS)

Luminous Arc review (DS)

Reviewed on November 25, 2007

The more ‘professional’ reviewers out there have all led their reviews by saying something along the lines of “It’s no Final Fantasy Tactics” and I fully agree with them. Luminous Arc isn’t a dull, monotonous trek through a featureless and overly-convoluted series of caves: it’s an explosive rocket bungee through a gallery of neon-lit wonderment.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations review (DS)

Reviewed on November 22, 2007

The Phoenix Wright formula is an effective one. Take one part point & click adventure, two parts courtroom drama and three parts ongoing story about a defense attorney in a world gone stir crazy, and you have a heavily text based but very enjoyable game. And that's a good thing, because Trials and Tribulations is more of exactly the same we've already seen for the past two games. In fact it's tempting to say that if you liked what came before, you can just stop reading and go and play - and if y...

Build-A-Bear Workshop review (DS)

Reviewed on November 19, 2007

If you're a parent and you don't mind walking your kid through the process the first few times, or if you have a boy or girl that's approaching the double digits and you want to provide him or her with an innocent alternative to some of the more violent fare on the market, you could do a lot worse than Build-A-Bear Workshop.

Mario Kart DS (DS)

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on November 18, 2007

When I was a little kid, one of my favorite games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System was the original Mario Kart game, simply titled Super Mario Kart. The game was an amazing achievement for the system, and is often hailed as not only one of the best racing games on the SNES, but one of the best racing games ever for a reason. The game tried new things, and introduced many elements that to this day are being copied by other franchises trying to convert into the racing genre. Mario Kart ...

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on November 15, 2007

At its best, Phantom Hourglass is pure fun. The innovative touch controls provide a fresh take on the standard Zelda fare, and that alone was enough to revitalise my dwindling interest in the series.

Nodame Cantabile (DS)

Nodame Cantabile review (DS)

Reviewed on November 13, 2007

You haven't read Nodame Cantabile either, have you? Conceived as a manga, adapted for both animated and live-action drama, highly praised as all three, yes, but that's not the point - any import gamer interested in the DS version is probably intrigued instead by the idea of an Ouendan with classical music, happily willing to ignore or endure any license-related distractions to that gameplay. Indeed, the title's good for some fun and has the rhythm genre's inherent addict...

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2007

Super Mario 64 – the father of modern gaming. Almost every gamer ever has played some form of this gaming classic in some form, and for good reason. Super Mario 64 did for the 3D generations of games what Super Mario Bros. did for the 2D generations of games. Simply, the game is legendary and wicked addicting and fun. Sure, by today's standards, Super Mario 64 may be showing some age, but by re-releasing the title on their latest handheld system Nintendo has breathed new life into their classic ...

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow (DS)

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2007

No matter what game is released for a console, I have always maintained that handheld titles are the best games. I don't know what it is, but for some odd reason I am usually more entertained by handheld games. Handheld titles also have a tendency to truly start or revitalize a franchise. What about the Pokemon games? Those games started a fad that even to this day is still running strong. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is one of those handheld games that, for me, provide the highest form of entert...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2007

Nearly every gamer got their first taste of the world of Animal Crossing when the GameCube original was released, but I was late to the GameCube party, and never managed to get my hands on the title that I had heard so many good things about. Well, I was quick to make sure that the same thing wouldn't happen again and I immediately dove to nab the sequel that was released on the Nintendo DS…Animal Crossing: Wild World.

Dementium: The Ward (DS)

Dementium: The Ward review (DS)

Reviewed on November 09, 2007

After a scant 15 minutes, Dementium: The Ward withered like an elderly man with erectile dysfunction. What began as a hardcore 1st-person shooter regressed into an atmospheric jaunt through a continual series of empty rooms and hallways.

Impossible Mission (DS)

Impossible Mission review (DS)

Reviewed on November 07, 2007

Back in the early eighties on the Commodore 64, Impossible Mission was a well named game. Aside from the obvious reference to a popular espionage series, the game's difficulty lived up to the title. You were a secret agent infiltrating an evil genius' stronghold, hoping to capture him before he could launch a nuclear missile. To accomplish this, you explored the rooms of his hideout, searching assorted furniture for puzzle pieces that you then had to combine to find a password.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations review (DS)

Reviewed on November 07, 2007

Have you played the first two Phoenix Wright games? Did you like them? If both your answers are yes, then play Phoenix Wright 3. It is exactly the same as the previous games. And I mean exactly. No new gameplay mechanics have been introduced, and half the graphics are lifted directly from Phoenix Wright 1/2. The formula is stale, but there’s still some fun to be had with PW3.

Honeycomb Beat (DS)

Honeycomb Beat review (DS)

Reviewed on November 06, 2007

The only real problem with Honeycomb Beat (aside from its insistence that I share anything in common with aquatic invertebrates) is that it's not a game that will be played in long stretches; it's a half-an-hour-before-closing-the-DS one.

What would the world be like without lawyers? An inhospitable wasteland full of creeps? Or an amicable society free of backstabbing SOBs? Either way, everyone knows that you can't live them, nor can you live without them.

Bleach: The Blade of Fate (DS)

Bleach: The Blade of Fate review (DS)

Reviewed on November 01, 2007

Handhelds have never been home to the latest and greatest fighting games, though a few gems have graced them over the years. The genre is perfect for small bursts of gaming, making it a seemingly logical choice for portable systems, but I can’t remember a single handheld fighter I’d rather play over its console counterpart (as almost all of them are ports.) This is usually due to poor or simplified controls stunting the experience and/or the inability to play against friends. I suppose it’s a...

Dementium: The Ward (DS)

Dementium: The Ward review (DS)

Reviewed on October 30, 2007

Dementium. It may not be a real word, but it doesn’t take a genius to realise that it’s a derivative of both “dementia” and “demented”; two words that describe a state of intellectual deterioration and the characteristics of manic behaviour, respectively. Can you feel the darkness already? You awake one night to find yourself holed up in a decrepit room, part of some hospital ward which you don’t remember being admitted into. It’s thundery outside. You can hear the roof tiles ...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All review (DS)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

Although the Phoenix Wright series has been established in Japan for a good number of years as Gyakuten Saiban, it’s still relatively new to the Western world. 2005’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was a hit in the US and Europe; the twisting murder plots and courtroom drama translated well from East to West. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All is very similar to its predecessor. The plotlines are well thought out and the characters well scripted, but it suffers severely from its short ...

Final Fantasy III review (DS)

Reviewed on October 26, 2007

Back on the Super Nintendo a wonderful game was released entitled Final Fantasy III, eventually we all learned that this in fact was not the real Final Fantasy III. They had taken what in Japan was Final Fantasy VI and made it into Final Fantasy III for the North American market, completely skipping over the original 8 bit wonder. Finally, after a long wait of over ten years us English speaking folk get the chance to play Final Fantasy III, legally. It i...

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on October 18, 2007

Phantom Hourglass is a bore. It takes the same tired gameplay we’ve been seeing for 20 years and throws some touch-screen functionality on it. Does the touch screen add much to the game? Not really. For every way in which it helps the gameplay, it also hinders it. It’s the definition of gimmick. For all but the most die-hard Zelda fans, Phantom Hourglass will be a long, boring trial to keep yourself awake.
