    Sonic the Hedgehog

    Rated on January 29, 2014 by ChrissieGirl

    Well over twenty years after it's release, it still holds up extremely well.

    If there's ever any video-game I remember fondly from my childhood, it's this one, since it was the first game I can remember ever playing. Many people may argue that Sonic's gotten a bit stale over t...

    Sonic Generations

    Rated on June 16, 2013 by ChrissieGirl

    The 3DS version of Sonic Generations is more of a miss than a hit.

    As a hardcore Sonic fan, it went without saying that after enjoying the well-made console version of Sonic Generations, I was most certainly going to purchase the 3DS version of the game. The handheld...

    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

    Rated on June 16, 2013 by ChrissieGirl

    It may not be Mario Kart, but this is easily the next best thing.

    There have been a lot of kart racing games eager to imitate the enormously successful Mario Kart formula, but very few of them have ever reached the same heights as the plumber's spin-off series. The ...

    It makes very few changes to the formula found in the first game, but those few changes keep it from feeling stale.

    With the release of Harry Potter: Years 1-4, it was blatantly obvious that there would be a sequel release focusing on Harry's final three years at Hogwarts. Needless to say, Lego Harry Potter: Years ...

    Irregular Hunter X

    Rated on July 03, 2012 by ChrissieGirl

    Maverick Hunter X is an excellent game that's well worth trying out, especially if you're a fan of old-school gaming.

    I was never hugely interested in the Mega Man franchise to begin with, but as of recently, I've grown incredibly fond of the franchise, and so could not resist trying out Maverick Hunter X, a PSP rema...

    Sonic Generations may not be a perfect Sonic game, but it's the closest a modern Sonic game has ever gotten.

    On Sonic's 15th anniversary in 2006, the blue hedgehog had a terrible celebration in the forms of the dreadful Sonic the Hedgehog (06), as well as the botched port/remake Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis. H...

    If you like the sound of a fast-paced Sonic fighting game, you might like this.

    I can summarize this game with only a few words; a 2D Super Smash Bros with Sonic characters. At least that's what I've seen people compare this game to, and it probably would fit as a decent descript...

    Sonic Advance 3 tweaks the 2D Sonic formula with a partner system, making things more interesting and enjoyable.

    Sonic Colours is the best 3D Sonic game for a long time and well worth the investment.

    One thing that you will hear a lot among both critics and Sonic fan's reviews is that Sonic hasn't been doing too well. A lot of his games were mediocre at best, with a few poor ones being released as...

    Once you've played it for half an hour, you've seen it all.

    This game, to be blunt, is one of those short games where it gets dull very quick. You buy it, try it out and you find that you like it. But then you go back to it later and all of the magic is gone. ...

    The movie 'Coraline' is, in my eyes, a fantastic movie that was well worth spending out the money to watch. The story of the film revolved around a young girl called, you guessed it, Coraline, who liv...
