Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on October 16, 2006

Throw out every rule and procedure of the criminal justice system. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a clever DS graphic adventure that forgoes the tedium of writs, motions, and the chain of evidence in favor of timely investigations and more expedient trials. Proceedings here are limited to three days, juries are nonexistent, and the accused is always presumed guilty. All that stands along a defendant’s path to a life sentence are a bloodthirsty prosecutor, an addlebrained judge, a handf...

Children of Mana (DS)

Children of Mana review (DS)

Reviewed on October 08, 2006

So, I just finished my first of two imports for my DS. The name of the game, as you should know, is Children of Mana. I'm not one for introductions most of the time, so let's just cut to the actual review.

MechAssault: Phantom War (DS)

MechAssault: Phantom War review (DS)

Reviewed on October 01, 2006

Welcome to the 32nd century. Mankind has developed new technology, allowing them to delve deep into the vast emptiness of space. Many of the planets are brimming with civilization, including an interstellar communication system with gigantic satellite dishes. However, such advancements don’t stop people from being power-hungry warmongers. In a bid for the dominance of the cosmos, nations have raised their own armies of elite mech pilots and trained them to become Mechwarriors. Tons of battles an...

Cooking Mama (DS)

Cooking Mama review (DS)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

All that Cooking Mama has to offer is cooking, cooking, and more routine cooking. The only real goal is to get perfect 100’s, but even then, the reward is yet another dish that utilizes the same cooking techniques and a little gold medal.

Mega Man ZX review (DS)

Reviewed on September 23, 2006

Once upon a time, two Maverick Hunters teamed up to save the future from evil. There stood X, a suped-up rendition of the original Mega Man that wielded a chargeable energy blaster. Then there was Zero, X’s undeniably badass partner that wielded an even more badass laser saber. These two heroes waged an epic war against Sigma, an evil robot psychopath held bent on destroying mankind and ruling the world. Sigma had ravaged cities, slaughtered plenty of innocent people, nearly destroyed the planet...

Star Fox Command review (DS)

Reviewed on September 18, 2006

With Adventures and Assault a distant memory, Star Fox Command arrives to bring the series back to its roots. And while it doesn’t fully succeed, it is the closest to the real deal since Star Fox 64.

Star Fox Command review (DS)

Reviewed on September 03, 2006

Once upon a time, the Star Fox series kicked ass. There was Fox McCloud, flying on a straight and pure course for the salvation of the Lylat solar system. He had a bunch of awesome characters acting as his backup, each with their own personality quirks and memorable lines. This mighty team of anthropomorphic aviators blazed through a wide variety of planets with only one goal in mind: annihilating the evil Andross and restoring peace to outer space. The only thing left in their wake was the char...

Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour (DS)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour review (DS)

Reviewed on August 29, 2006

No matter where you go, you've probably heard the name Yu-Gi-Oh before. You might have seen it on numerous commercials while flipping channels, scanned its name on random ads scattered on the train on the way to work, or your little brother might be begging you to give him some money to buy some cards at the local hobby store. Yu-Gi-Oh has left its mark on the world and everyone knows it. It's everywhere, even on your Nintendo DS with the release of Yu-Gi-Oh: Nightmare Troubadour. Althoug...

Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends: Harvest Time Hop and Fly (DS)

Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends: Harvest Time Hop and Fly review (DS)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

A second stage type finds you controlling a dragonfly as he soars through the air on a fruit-gathering mission. He has to avoid floating flower seeds and other plants, as well as trickles of water that sometimes fall from above. Bumping into anything lowers his life meter, and splashing into liquid will slow him enough that he’ll miss valuable fruit or bump into something nasty. It’s like a horizontal shooter, only without the bullets or violence.

Ossu! Tatakae! Ouendan! (DS)

Ossu! Tatakae! Ouendan! review (DS)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

Ossu! Tatake! Ouendan is as weird a game as you could envisage, but after you’ve experienced its tense, chaotic action and warmed to its eccentric cast you’ll keep coming back to improve your score and relive the artistic comic book plots. Few hand-held games have exacted this kind of hold on me, but then few games ask you to tap circles to the beat so three cheerleaders -- male cheerleaders -- can inspire people to succeed.

Tony Hawk's American Sk8land (DS)

Tony Hawk's American Sk8land review (DS)

Reviewed on August 25, 2006

Are you obsessed with Hollywood and it's supposed movie-star lifestyle? Do you skateboard? Does the phrase "California Uber Alles" make you happy? How about "Deutschland Uber Alles"? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you're most certainly looking at the right game. However if you find liberal conspiracy music about California being fascist disheartening in a Skateboarding game, perhaps THAS is too much for you.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

The concept of Phoenix Wright is simple: you are a lawyer. Or, to be more specific, a defense attorney. Your job is to save your client from conviction--they're always innocent of the crime--and invariably find the real perpetrator, who is always caught during their own testimonies declaring the defendant's guilt. The game becomes predictable in a hurry. But it's entertaining, it has some inspired moments, and there's no other game quite like it. Until Phoenix Wright 2 is released, that is.

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day (DS)

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

The words "education" and "entertainment" usually don't belong together. So when we call Oregon Trail, Reading Rabbit, and Math Blaster "edutainment" software, heads start to turn; even more so for Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!, since (besides the long name) it targets more than children. Brain Age dreams of DS lovers walking down the street playing mental exercises that supposedly improve your practical intelligence. Supervisor and prominent Ja...

Feel the Magic: XY/XX review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

Sometimes, I feel that launch games are just there to test a machine's capabilities and how the public will react to it. I feel that these games are somewhat entertaining, but not "complete". There's a missing element in some of these launch games that makes them feel more like a test than a game that's meant to keep you entertained for a long time. This is how I felt about Feel the Magic.

Metroid Prime Pinball (DS)

Metroid Prime Pinball review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

What sounds more insipid than a primitive pinball machine that creaks and groans, tantalizing you with its boringly enticing gameplay, simplistic concept, dry display and generally dull premise? Nothing, of course. But that doesn’t mean that a pinball game centered on the lively worlds of Metroid Prime can’t be a freaking riot to play.

New Super Mario Bros. (DS)

New Super Mario Bros. review (DS)

Reviewed on August 04, 2006

Everyone’s favorite hero, Mario, returns to his plumbing roots in New Super Mario Bros, essentially a more detailed look at the 1985 classic, Super Mario Bros. Despite being showcased in Super Mario Strikers and Mario Baseball, NSMB shows that Mario still can be the perfect piece in an excellent side scrolling adventure, and it brings a simple control scheme that allows for crazy level design. The plot and some of the environments from Super Mario Bros are re-used, but the game is significantly ...

Point Blank DS review (DS)

A charming and frantic game, it’s all the fun of a carnival, without the hawkers, rigged games, and petting zoo aroma. Then again, there are reasons I don’t go to carnivals anymore.
