Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck (DS)

Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck review (DS)

Reviewed on October 17, 2007

In Duck Amuck, your goal is not to save the princess, or to make Daffy as wealthy as possible, or to show Bugs Bunny once and for all which mascot is superior. You aren't even sparing the cartoon world an invasion from Marvin the Martian. In fact, though Daffy is clearly the star of the show, you're not helping him do anything great at all. Instead, you're trying to ruffle his feathers. You win the game when he gets so angry that he blows his top. That's it. End of story.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on October 13, 2007

You Nintendo bastards. You think you can take over the world with your touch screens and your motion-sensitive remotes? This battle against the conventions of gaming has raged on for years, and now look what you’ve done. You’ve dragged Zelda into this mess. Haven’t you reanimated enough familiar franchises as is? Can’t you give it a rest? You can do whatever you want to Kirby and Metroid, but not Zelda, man! LEAVE MY ZELDA ALONE!

WarioWare: Touched! (DS)

WarioWare: Touched! review (DS)

Reviewed on October 13, 2007

Wario Ware: Touched! is fun depending on what type of person you are. If you enjoy funny, light-hearted stories, unrolling toilet paper, and using a peeing statue to stop a forest fire this is definitely for you. You will do everything in this game from cutting, poking, sliding, and even blowing all via the touch screen, save the latter.

Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day (DS)

Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day review (DS)

Reviewed on September 24, 2007

Feeling a bit stupid? Positive that the best way to fix your stupidity is with a videogame? Well then I suppose that Brain Age 2 would be one of your best options. But if you feel nice and smart, then there's an overbearing chance that you'll hate this game. If not right away, then in a few weeks. Why? It just gets boring and frustrating, that's why. I know it is an "educational" game, but it falls short even for this category with its lack of variety, overall brevity, and mind-numbing fl...

Worms: Open Warfare 2 (DS)

Worms: Open Warfare 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on September 21, 2007

Even though there's an effective tutorial at the onset of the game (which you can skip if you're so inclined), getting a handle on the destructive implements available can prove difficult. Options like the flaming fist that lets you knock your opponents backward with a cry of “Shoryuken!” are cool and have predictable results, but more standard fare like the bazooka definitely doesn't.

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

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

Reviewed on September 10, 2007

For starters, there is no need to bother with this one until you've played and finished Ace Attorney. The story picks up from the events of the past game, with just enough flashbacks to be able to play it separately if you must, but you'll get more out of it knowing what led up to the events here. The gameplay is also virtually identical, and there a recurring characters and locations to boot. Essentially, Justice for All feels like 4 new cases in the same game.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on September 10, 2007

It is completely linear, it involves a lot of reading, it has an annoying bit here and there where you're wondering how to convince the story to move along, and once you've finished it, any replay will be precisely the same...and I'm still absolutely in love with it.

Trauma Center: Under the Knife (DS)

Trauma Center: Under the Knife review (DS)

Reviewed on September 07, 2007

My first patient in Trauma Center: Under the Knife was named Kevin Turk. He was riding a motorcycle when he suddenly lost control of the vehicle and crashed through a glass door. The accident left him with lacerations in his upper right arm, and they were starting to hemorrhage. The man also had shards of glass lodged deep within his right shoulder. This procedure would require me to remove all foreign objects from his skin, and then suture up any wounds.

Luminous Arc (DS)

Luminous Arc review (DS)

Reviewed on September 04, 2007

As an institution that stands for goodness and light, the Luminous Church is quick to punish anyone and everyone. In the very first scene, an exalted Cardinal, second in Luminous command, seeks to imprison two monks innocently expressing doubts about the Church leadership. It will shut down trade and travel throughout civilization for its own purposes, imposing on the insignificant commoners. And above all, it hunts down and condemns Witches, the ultimate enemies of God. (Thus the capital ‘W...

Transformers: Autobots (DS)

Transformers: Autobots review (DS)

Reviewed on September 03, 2007

Transformers: The Movie is a seriously kick-arse film about a hyperactive kid helping out some colossal Japanese robots to cause one billion dollars worth of damage to the city, and in doing so, he also manages to score a goddess of a hot chick. Transformers: Autobots, one half of the official DS games of the movie, does away with all of that nonsense, and instead leaves us stuck in a Grand Theft Auto inspired sandbox... for better or for worse? We'll soon find out.

Mega Man Star Force: Leo review (DS)

Reviewed on August 27, 2007

Ever since his heroic astronaut father got lost in space, young Geo Stelar has never been the same. He withdrew himself from the world that carried on turning, abandoning school and hence any hope of new-found friendship. Geo became a loner. But then one day, something extraordinary happens. An alien life-form composed entirely of electromagnetic waves lands in Geo’s favourite lookout spot and without stopping to breathe in the fresh oxygenated air, it approaches the emotionally torn boy.

Tetris DS (DS)

Tetris DS review (DS)

Reviewed on August 09, 2007

I've said before that Tetris is one of the few games that will never, EVER get old. I stand by that statement, and no matter how many times countless developers will try to reinvent it to make more money, the basic, primitive game of Tetris is probably all we'll need.

Contact (DS)

Contact review (DS)

Reviewed on August 01, 2007

Here’s what Contact’s box guarantees you won’t find in the game: A dull moment; normalcy; a guy with “spikey” hair and/or amnesia; dramatic monologues; the same battles you’ve been fighting since the 16-bit era.

Transformers: Decepticons (DS)

Transformers: Decepticons review (DS)

Reviewed on July 22, 2007

Whether you choose to follow the game’s story, which is told through a series of missions, or elect to simply spend the afternoon driving the police nuts by raising and lowering your “wanted” level (a gauge measuring how vigorously the authorities pursue you; smash stuff to raise the level, behave and the cops will leave you alone), there is a lot of sadistic fun to be had with the game. Being that you’re playing as a bad guy, you’ll probably want to break as much stuff as possible, if only just to live up to your name.

Transformers: Autobots (DS)

Transformers: Autobots review (DS)

Reviewed on July 22, 2007

Activision and developer Vicarious Visions have really pulled something spectacular with this game. Transformers: Autobots is the kind of “sandbox” game that people have been waiting for. In the most popular “sandbox” title, the Grand Theft Auto series, players are given control of a racial stereotype and have the ability to steal cars and shoot people in an urban cityscape. Yawn. In Transformers: Autobots, you have four full stages to explore and the ability to become any car or vehicle you can imagine.

You know her type – she’s an intergalactic bounty hunter. Working for a futuristic space federation, she scours the universe battling evil through countless attempts to restore peace and justice to our existence. Donning a unique spacesuit and sporting all manner of lasers and explosives, she’s equipped to handle just about anything, and if there’s an alien infestation or virus outbreak that must be dealt with, you know who to call.

Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 (DS)

Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on July 13, 2007

With DS rhythm games winning hearts on both sides of the Pacific, iNiS has developed a formula that works, and Moero Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu Tatakae Ouendan 2 doesn’t deviate from the mold. The musical adventure follows the (mostly) male cheerleading crew introduced in the first Ouendan; you must aid their efforts to boost the spirits of people in need. It then borrows the best technical features from its American cousin, Elite Beat Agents, to offer a subtly improv...

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.
