Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (DS)

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

If you’re of the opinion that RPGs have become stale, do yourself a favor and check out Puzzle Quest for the Nintendo DS. Thematically similar to classic sword-and-sorcery role-playing games, Puzzle Quest casts you in the role of saving an Arthurian land from an overwhelming dark presence. But when’s the last time you saved the world with a game of Bejeweled? With its unprecedented mixture of stat-building and puzzling, Puzzle Quest becomes a great game whose originality and general weirdness wi...

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.

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (DS)

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)

Reviewed on June 20, 2007

Winning and losing should be based on skill and strategy, not a roll of the dice. Although it’s their first venture into the RPG genre, 1st Playable Productions found an intriguing way around this problem, through puzzles and a rich character building system.

Code Lyoko (DS)

Code Lyoko review (DS)

Reviewed on June 20, 2007

Code Lyoko is the game adaptation of of a French children's cartoon. The back of the box outlines the game's sales gimmick in one succinct, entirely capitalized phrase. "4 UNIQUE WAYS TO PLAY!"

Pokémon Pearl Version review (DS)

Reviewed on June 19, 2007

Since the beginning of mankind, anyone who has told a story, has furthered the idea of the Hero. In the 1940's, Joseph Campbell wrote a book called "The Hero with a Thousand Faces", in which Joseph claims every story has already been told and it is necessary to continue to retell these stories. He went on to detail the Hero's Journey and the Characters who accompany the hero. So we are telling the exact same story as our ancient ancestors. Campbell's book his inspired one of his best friends to ...

Everything that could have made Pet Alien a success is suspended in an atmosphere of mediocrity.

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS review (DS)

Reviewed on June 17, 2007

SNK vs. Capcom. That phrase conjures up images of dozens of martial artists slaughtering each other with a slew of fireballs and flurries of kicks and punches. Those epic clashes were a fighting game fan’s dream come true; who could imagine that Street Fighter’s Ryu would ever trade blows with Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard? Accordingly, the crossover games were a huge success; they were so popular that they even got their own spin-off titles. Thus SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighter’s Clash...

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

Reviewed on June 16, 2007

It must be easy having a superhero in your life. Gotham City would be screwed without the exploits of Batman keeping its people safe from the Joker and other villains. Without Superman crushing Lex Luthor, the denizens of Metropolis wouldn't stand a chance. And for the people of the Morning and Evening Cities, their problems are danced away by a group of superheroes known only as Ouendan.

Planet Puzzle League (DS)

Planet Puzzle League review (DS)

Reviewed on June 10, 2007

Once upon a time, Panel de Pon (and its American counterpart Tetris Attack) ruled supreme over the puzzle gaming genre. At first glance, the game didn’t seem like much; what’s so great about switching a bunch of rainbow-colored blocks around the screen while a gang of fairy kids cheered you on? While it had a presentation childish enough to send insecure male gamers running for the nearest gore-heavy fighter, Panel de Pon had an ace up its sleeve: pure, unbridled addictivene...

Spider-Man 2 (DS)

Spider-Man 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on May 31, 2007

If you have been keeping up with the flow of DS reviews that have been trickling out of my head recently, Spider-Man is a name that should be firmly embossed inside yours. There are 4 Spidey games currently available on the DS platform, and Spider-Man 2 was the first one released, back when the DS made its sketchy debut. I now bring the quadrilogy of reviews to a close by spilling my guts on this launch title. Bear in mind that it’s quite disgusting – my guts that is.

Master Jin Jin's IQ Challenge review (DS)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

The worth of your brain levels are easy to call into question, too. They never decrease with incorrect answers and, if one set of puzzles prove too hard for you, you can dodge the harder incarnations of them and instead do several of the same puzzles on an easier setting to rack up the same promotion. In fact, after only about half an hour or so on the easiest setting, you can climb your level onto that of a PhD mind – which sounds very impressive for a few shape-nudges and math sequence algorithms.

Egg Monster Hero review (DS)

Reviewed on May 28, 2007

The Almamoon Kingdom is in trouble. No, there aren't invading troops led by an evil warlord. There is no famine, pestilence is under control, and the only epidemic around is the flu during wintertime. The problem lay with Almamoon’s leadership (or rather, the lack of it). After inheriting the position from his father, the prince of Almamoon has been shirking his royal duties. He spends his days snoozing on the throne, chowing down everything edible in sight, and completely ignoring his education...

Pokémon Pearl Version review (DS)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

These games were overall really good. The style of game changed completely resulting in a better game than the eleven before. The graphics have changed, the look of the characters have changed, more pokemon have been added, the overall goal that you need to accomplish right away has completely changed, and most of the options that used to take forever to do, have been sped up by the use of the stylus.

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS review (DS)

Reviewed on May 24, 2007

Naturally, placing cards isn’t as simple as sorting through all of your options and proving yourself clever. You are instead the victim of chance. Later matches even mostly come down to who draws the best hand from the start. Each round, a new card presents itself. You might find it useless or be stunned by its value.

Honeycomb Beat review (DS)

Reviewed on May 07, 2007

When you’re done in Honeycomb Beat’s Puzzle Mode, you’re done. This is fine, except the only rewards are unlockable backgrounds. No hotties in bikinis, colorful fireworks, or even an exciting song to dance around to. At this point, I would even settle for a measly “Congratulations” screen.

As the sun rises over the Sinnoh Region, children are leaving their homes by the hundreds. They aren’t attending school, nor are they running away from tough family situations and domestic abuse. In fact, their parents are waving goodbye from their doorsteps, secretly wiping tears from their eyes and hiding their emotions. They know that they may never see their sons or daughters for months, years, or ever again. Yet they allow the children roam free across the land, exploring every dank cave, w...

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

Reviewed on April 24, 2007

The 2005 release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney captured hearts with sensational mysteries, humorous characters, and witty dialogue. In this second installment of the graphic adventure, subtitled Justice for All, Capcom’s most famous lawyer returns for more of the same. The sequel presents a quartet of tragic cases that will put your analytical ability to a moderate test. More important, it continues to expand on the characters so carefully developed in the first game. The fam...

Spectrobes (DS)

Spectrobes review (DS)

Reviewed on April 23, 2007

That your angry little pets never leave your side is doubly annoying; not only does it mean you need to put yourself right in the face of intergalactic forces that want to eat you, but should you move away when they’re attacking to avoid being hit, or should your pets get smacked across the screen, they’ll come running back to you in as direct a line as they can, even if this means running right through a group and getting smacked up themselves. Spectrobes are very stupid creatures when they’ve grown up.

Toon-Doku (DS)

Toon-Doku review (DS)

Reviewed on April 23, 2007

Toon-Doku turns things on its head by replacing the familiar digits with non-offensive picture tiles. Not only that, but it throws a whole bunch of them at you and lets you choose which you would like to have in play. It’s a nice touch, but it doesn’t do a thing to change how Sudoku plays. You still do nothing more than line up your characters the same way you have in any of the million rounds of Sudoku that you’ve played before.

Now that I've finally gotten along to getting a DS, I got this game because it looked promising in the previews. I wasn't let down, but it felt a bit easy for a Mario game.
