Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies review (DS)

A good game marred by Nintendo cutting off Wi-Fi support to the DS.

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors review (DS)

9 people have been kidnapped by someone named Zero to take part in the “Nonary Game”, a lovely piece of mathematical idiosyncrasy involving the digital roots of numbers.

Unfortunately, when my tour with Fever was done, I left with a feeling of disdain, that and a lingering question that stuck with me for months: how does the DS predecessor play?

Orcs & Elves (DS)

Orcs & Elves review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2013

A solid fantasy romp that focuses on what makes fantasy games fun: slaying enemies, using potions, and trying new weapons.

Jewel Master: Cradle of Egypt 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on December 05, 2012

Rather than pairing up squares for points, as you do in Bejeweled, you use the stylus to group symbols in order to clear colored tiles within a given time limit. Matching specific symbols, such as tomatoes or gold coins, earns you resources, which you receive upon level completion. These resources enable you to erect a number of historical Egyptian buildings, each of which is accompanied by a little historical factoid about that particular structure’s function in society at that time.

Pokémon Conquest (DS)

Pokémon Conquest review (DS)

Reviewed on July 01, 2012

The realm of Ransei is on the verge of destruction. Its people live for only two things: war and Pokemon. There are countless warriors roaming the land with their trusted animal companions, each seeking the glory and authority rewarded to the victors. Legends say that if a single warlord were to conquer all 17 kingdoms in Ransei, the creator of the world will return and bestow its powers upon the chosen one. As a result, the various nations are locked in eternal conflict, each vying for the slig...

Orcs & Elves review (DS)

Reviewed on May 31, 2012

The developers brought us old school style, but left out the substance. The end result is a game that feels more antiquated than it should. It's funny because this game is only five years old and it's already aged worse than many of the other rat maze RPGs it pays homage to.

Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure review (DS)

Reviewed on May 24, 2012

Overall Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure is an enjoyable game that is simple to pick up, yet challenging enough to keep you engaged. I recommend it for both puzzle game fans, and plat former fans.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 review (DS)

Reviewed on March 21, 2012

The meaty bits of battle were so succulent that they were worth waiting through even the most asinine dialogue. When a game's perks are so great that you can ignore such flaws, you know you have a great title on your hands. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 definitely qualifies.

Super Scribblenauts (DS)

Super Scribblenauts review (DS)

Reviewed on December 22, 2011

If a puzzle gives you too much trouble, the game has a hint system in place. You can pay virtual currency to unlock new tips that supply varying degrees of assistance. Sometimes, the best hints will flat out give you the answer, which may disappoint some. It's not a big deal, though, because most stages can be repeated. The only way to get a gold crown for such stages is to play through it three consecutive times while using different phrases on every attempt.

Beyblade: Metal Masters (DS)

Beyblade: Metal Masters review (DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2011

The combat itself is barebones. Much of it is based on typical fighting convention stuff: position, sequence and timing. It’s all very basic. What’s important is to launch well and to use special attacks frequently. Each Beyblade has an associated power animal which factors into some combos and can be called upon for a seven-second cutscene in battle. There’s no option to turn these off (or even an options menu at all) and they’re never very good. They don’t even show the animal attack; allies just arrive and the screen goes white.

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light (DS)

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2011

Customizing your characters has seldom been simpler in an RPG. Any hero in your merry band can be anything you like. It all comes down to the crowns with which you equip everyone. As you progress through the game and defeat powerful monsters, a magical crystal will bestow upon your party the gift of a new crown or two. A character who starts with the ability to just barely wield a sword can eventually grow into a battle-hardened Fighter, or perhaps a Black Mage or even something as frivolous as a Bard.

Kirby: Mass Attack (DS)

Kirby: Mass Attack review (DS)

Reviewed on September 17, 2011

The inability to consistently fling puffballs is the biggest problem that you’ll likely have with Kirby Mass Attack, because at times that particular activity can be vitally important. For example, in one stage you must repeatedly ram a block to slide it along a platform before a timer counts down and it explodes. There’s specific placement you’ll have in mind, but getting the explosive charge positioned in time can be difficult when every second or third swipe on the screen doesn’t register.

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation (DS)

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation review (DS)

Reviewed on August 27, 2011

Dragon Quest VI's main draw will always be its extraordinary plot and immense world. The plights of each world's citizens feel real, raw. They’re moving and inspire players to do all that they can. The enormous map will ensure that you're still discovering new places well into your fiftieth hour. But most of all, once you’ve uncovered that last inch of land, you'll be sad it's over. You'll look back on all that you've done and ask, “Why did it have to end?”

Fossil Fighters (DS)

Fossil Fighters review (DS)

Reviewed on June 30, 2011

The hammer chips and softens the tough outer layer of the fossil rock while the drill carefully cleans away the remaining sediment without obliterating the delicate skeleton underneath. Upgrades give you stronger versions of these tools, but because of their strength, your chances of breaking certain bones are much greater.
