    Vanquish

    It's over in the blink of an eye, but Vanquish succeeds in delivering an explosive good time.

    Ever since rising from the ashes of Clover Studio, developer Platinum Games has specialized in delivering console experiences that are incredibly over-the-top in some manner. 2009's MadWorld brought violence and gore to ... Read Full Review

    The revival to the classic franchise plays it too safe, but is solid enough for fans of the genre regardless.

    Golden Sun: Dark Dawn

    The revival to the classic franchise plays it too safe, but is solid enough for fans of the genre regardless.

    If there is one word that sums up the Golden Sun series in its entirety, it is "Traditional". From its start as an early Game Boy Advance RPG, this franchise has never been about redefining what it is to be an RPG with r... Read Full Review

    Illusion of Gaia

    This action-RPG stays enjoyable to this day thanks to challenging combat and good storytelling.

    Back in the days of the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis, there existed a developing team by the name of Quintet. This team excelled at making action-RPG hybrids with stories that often explored themes other games wouldn'... Read Full Review

    Banjo to Kazooie no Daibouken

    Despite some annoying growing pains, collecting Jiggies is still as fun as it was over a decade ago.

    Back when the idea of a fully-explorable 3D world in a video game was still relatively new, one of the most popular genres was the "collect-a-thon" platformer. This type of game revolved around exploring a huge world and... Read Full Review

    Metroid: Other M

    Other M has its fair share of fun moments, but there are quite a few faults to overcome first.

    For many years, Nintendo has taken a minimalistic approach when it comes to storytelling in their top-tier games. While the narratives that have been offered in the likes of Zelda and the Mario RPG series have certainly ... Read Full Review

    Undead Nightmare puts an interesting spin on the gritty world of New Austin.

    Kirby's Epic Yarn

    Kirby's Epic Yarn is an ideal treat for anyone looking for a soft and charming platformer.

    For many gamers, the enjoyment in video games comes from the sense of challenge they present. Overcoming the trials and tribulations of the game's campaign or being the top dog in the multiplayer modes can give the vict... Read Full Review

    Hoshi no Kirby Yume no Izumi Deluxe

    Nightmare in Dreamland has a lovable presentation and solid platforming that's marred only by its shallow content.

    When the words "Nintendo" and "Platformer" come together, the first thing that usually comes to mind is Mario or Donkey Kong. However, there's another iconic hero who can match the same level of enjoyment as these two ch... Read Full Review

    Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising

    The combination of deep strategic gameplay and instant accessibility makes Advance Wars 2 a brilliantly fun time.

    The turn-based strategy genre is understandably one of the least accessible genres in gaming. While quick reflexes and an itchy trigger-finger are not necessary, these games generally require learning a deep system of ru... Read Full Review
