Meteos (DS)

Meteos review (DS)

Reviewed on March 28, 2006

If Lumines is portable gaming’s figure skating, then Meteos is snowboarding in an avalanche while trying to control a full bladder.

Metroid Prime: Hunters (DS)

Metroid Prime: Hunters review (DS)

Reviewed on March 26, 2006

This game has given me some much needed perspective on an aspect of life I’ve sadly deserted…my temper. Yes, while Metroid Prime: Hunters sports some of the most handsome graphics available on a handheld, finely tuned AI, impressive online features, and even bots to engage the lowlifes with no friends, it still manages to frustrate me to a maddening level with its controls from hell. After you pop this game in your DS (and you should, this is still a fine game), be warned now that within an ho...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2006

As a child, adults would commonly ask about a child’s aspirations in life. Certainly, nobody would answer that they aspire to be a garbage disposer or a manager at a local fast food chain. Most answers would consist of being lawyers, doctors, psychologists, etc. Unfortunately, as children grow up their lack of effort in school also diminishes. Not everyone can be a lawyer or a doctor, but luckily for those that couldn’t get into law school, Capcom has decided to meet the needs of the unlucky. En...

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence (DS)

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence review (DS)

Reviewed on February 11, 2006

I know what you’re thinking: you’ve played this game ten years ago, and after a half-dozen more incarnations across numerous platforms, including the complete makeover on the Nintendo Gamecube, why should you bother with the latest re-released version of Resident Evil? Well, let’s get to that, shall we?

Bubble Bobble Double Shot (DS)

Bubble Bobble Double Shot review (DS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2006

When you consider the process of remaking a classic, it's surprising how many times the new & improved product eventually disappoints. In a perfect world, developers would cautiously add a fresh lick of paint, fine tune the controls, then ship the game without burying it under a pile of noxious, modern thinking crap. Take note Taito, that was your first mistake.

Puyo Pop Fever (DS)

Puyo Pop Fever review (DS)

Reviewed on February 01, 2006

I first experienced Puyo Pop on the GBA years ago. I don’t know what made it so captivating, but lining up multicolored balls of goop was incredibly addictive. The campy storyline and goofy characters only managed to pull me into the game more. I embraced these nostalgic feelings as I loaded up Puyo Pop Fever. My thoughts were filled with happiness, glee, and even expectation (feelings I rarely get from video games these days). These feelings were crushed instantly by the music tha...

Meteos (DS)

Meteos review (DS)

Reviewed on January 30, 2006

Planet Meteo is a big bully! While other planets all live in peace and harmony, this evil planet has a chip on its shoulder. More than just a chip, actually. Meteo has bricks on its shoulders. Multi-coloured bricks, called meteos, that the planet sees fit to hurl into the galaxy. And not just randomly, either. No, these bricks are launched at other planets where they pile up until the planet is engulfed in a mountain of them. When this happens, the meteos go nova, and the planet is destroyed.

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on January 23, 2006

You’re in the back seat of a car with an animal at the wheel, steering through unforgiving rain traveling down an unknown road. You’re moving from your old life - no more large city, no more long job times, no more long distances between destinations, no more humans. That’s ‘bleh’, not appealing, not interesting. No, you’d rather live in the relaxed town of… where? You decide. You name where you want to go. Spiral? Sizzler? Gootown? Doesn’t matter. That’s where you’re going, where this unknown r...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

A long, long time ago on the Dreamcast there was a game called Shenmue. Not many people remember much about Shenmue, but it was a game where you played as a young Chinese man attempting to avenge his father's death by buying furniture for his house. While the concept was nonsensical, the game sold, as would its XBox sequel. Enter Nintendo. With the doomed failure that was the N64, Nintendo decided that it had to do something to boost sales, and released Doubutsu No Mori, a direct ripoff of Shen...

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy (DS)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy review (DS)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

Fullmetal Alchemist has become a somewhat popular anime and manga series on American soil lately. However, it is far more popular in Japan, as is obvious by the movie released that has yet to obtain an American release date, as well as the various Fullmetal Alchemist games released for previous handhelds, that will never make it here. The latest game in the series, Dual Sympathy for the Nintendo DS looks to be sealed with the same fate. Considering that the Nintendo DS has no region block, impor...

Feel the Magic: XY/XX (DS)

Feel the Magic: XY/XX review (DS)

Reviewed on January 13, 2006

You bought this game? Are you crazy? You absolutely are not! You just made the best move in your whole life. This game will be the game of the year. Now Feel the Magic is a really unique game, and it really takes use of the DS’s abilities like the touch screen and microphone. This game was released late in the year of 2004, and was created by the Sonic Team, which is known for some great games.

Nintendogs: Chihuahua & Friends (DS)

Nintendogs: Chihuahua & Friends review (DS)

Reviewed on January 09, 2006

Nintendogs is, if you will, a virtual pet simulator. It lets you choose your very own companion among quite a large selection of different dogs. You can name it, walk it, play with it, wash it, pet it, teach it tricks, enter it in competitions... and pretty much everything you can do with a real dog. The game is perfectly fitted for the DS, making brilliant use of all of its features.

Pac-Man World 3 (DS)

Pac-Man World 3 review (DS)

Reviewed on January 08, 2006

When you’re not grabbing dots (which I’d imagine could just as easily be acorns or gold coins), and when you’re not running from ghosts in the infrequent maze puzzles (which make up only a minority of the game’s events), you’re just solving genereic puzzles and making a lot of tricky jumps through lifeless environments while the camera looks anxiously for an opportunity to get hung up in tight quarters and frustrate you.

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 28, 2005

I’m not Nintendo’s #1 fan, but I’ve found myself siding with them more and more; the majority of gamers seem either increasingly hostile or increasingly indifferent to their efforts. I liked Mario Sunshine, I loved Wind Waker, and I could see Circle of the Moon just fine.

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 27, 2005

With so many great tracks, it’s hard to pick a favorite. If you’re missing some of the good times of old, a lot of those are back, too. You can race through re-imagined versions of the tracks from each of the past games in the series. They’re just as much fun as they were before. In fact, that’s true of the whole game.

Kirby: Canvas Curse (DS)

Kirby: Canvas Curse review (DS)

Reviewed on December 20, 2005

If anyone has imaginative mascots, it's Nintendo. What, with Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Waluigi, Nintendo has proved time and time again that they know their creativity from their connectivity. In Kirby's case, he was apparently designed after a swelling marshmallow. This time he happens to be a circular, pink puffball, chubby at all sides with the ability to expand in the air, suck hard, take the form of his opponents, and now he's been magically transfused into a ball. However, this past summer,...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife (DS)

Trauma Center: Under the Knife review (DS)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Trauma Center is one of those staple games that becomes pretty much a household word if you're talking about the DS. At first, it's pretty hard to tell why - it looks like a hentai game that tries to make the touchscreen look useful. While it is a blatant example of Nintendo whoring out the DS's touchscreen to all takers, Trauma Center manages to be one of the best games for the system, and is definitely unique - if only for the fact that instead of killing random people, you're saving their liv...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

I'll be the first to admit it: I fell head over heels for the cutesy charm of Animal Crossing on the Gamecube. Its simple, yet meaningful tasks paved the way for a digital experience unlike any other video game I've ever played. Upon hearing of a DS version in the works, I was simply elated. Portable fossil unearthing, fruit planting, and house customizing action sounds excruciatingly irresistible; and it is, for the most part. A couple flaws keep this one from transcending the original (al...

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2005

I still remember the day hearing that there was going to be a 3D Mario game. I figured it was just a rumor, I enjoyed Mario games, but a 3D Mario game called Super Mario 64, sounded like a joke to me. Still I imagined how great it would be, and when the day came where Mario 64 was released, that dream was reality except better. I was actually playing a 3D game with my favorite character. Now that fantastic game, has been brought to a little something we called our “Nintendo DS”, and has been adv...

Mario Kart DS (DS)

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on November 22, 2005

The Mario Kart franchise has always been a stalwart in Nintendo's lineup of games. Featuring all of the iconic Nintendo characters in zany karts, a party-like spin is what makes Mario Kart great. While it still takes skill to be good, an assortment of powerups can be used to vault you from last to first in a matter of seconds. This all sounds familiar, (and it is) but what makes this game stand out is its astounding graphics, portability, and (FINALLY!!) online play.
