You're a cop. Your car has crashed and all of your captured convicts have escaped! In order to find them and bring justice, you must traverse the levels and use your jump, blaster, and platform-controlling siren. Surpris... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is the representation of Sonic's return to his roots: platforming and thwarting the evil plans of Dr. Eggman. Making story almost nonexistant in favor of highlight colorful, fast-paced platforming is... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Xenosaga is a cinematic darling and an RPG with an extremely solid battle system and wonderful orchestral music.
Sometimes, games have trouble telling a powerful story. Many games manage to get by with their gameplay but outside of that they don't have much going. Xenosaga is not one of those games. With a strong, motivating narrat... Read Full Review2 of 5 users found the following review helpful
Sonic's had a lot of ups and downs over the course of 20 years, but one thing's for certain: he doesn't die. His fanbase, determined and forever following, will continually observe his highest highs and lowest lows. Soni... Read Full Review11 of 14 users found the following review helpful
If you're looking for a good M-rated game on the Wii, this is it. Stop looking for a game and pick this up.

Sonic Unleashed has a lot going for it but a lot going against it. It has potential, but it doesn't live up to it.
Sonic's been through ups and downs. However in 2008, a very promising Sonic Unleashed was announced and then released. While it did not save Sonic from mediocrity like fans hoped for, it does have a few things that help ... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful

Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, unlike its GBA brother Nightmare in Dream Land, is a completely new game in the Kirby series, and any new Kirby game, you can expect some new twist to try and switch things up. There are sev... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Capcom seems to like making a habit of reiterating their best fighting games and rereleasing them all over the place. Thankfully, one smart manuever was made to put Super Street Fighter IV onto the handheld battlefield a... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Platformers nowadays are beginning to become quite plentiful, but many of them lack something to give them a truly unique flair. Good Feel has decided to give Kirby a new outlook on his own style of play, and as a result... Read Full Review13 of 18 users found the following review helpful

Big Bang Mini is one of the most creative games you'll find on the DS, and it deserves your attention.
The DS is home to a long line of great games with unique gameplay that takes full advantage of the DS's capabilities and embraces what it can do. Big Bang Mini is the kind of game that would not fit well on any system ot... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
At first glance Black/White looks like a lot of the same thing we've come to know about the Pokemon series. You can expect small changes but nothing groundbreaking. While this is arguably true, Black/White are by far the... Read Full Review11 of 12 users found the following review helpful
The nostalgia and obvious fanservice aside, this is probably the most fun a Pokemon game has provided in years.
Remakes that were speculated since the release of FireRed and LeafGreen back in 2004, HeartGold and SoulSilver throw the clocks back 10 years and remind you just why Pokemon was such a phenomenon. Getting back to basics,... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Final Fantasy III originally didn't exist in English. It was simply a Japan-only game, and it was skipped over when the series was originally finding its stride in North America. But after Final Fantasy VII broke the doo... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Disgaea is a "more-of-the-same" kind of strategy/RPG, but with what it brings to the table, it doesn't need to be much more than that. You can find endless hours of gameplay in this one game, and by the time you yourself... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Ape Escape is probably unlike any platformer you've ever played, and that's what makes it such a good game.
Ape Escape came out shortly after the DualShock controller was released, as a way to demonstrate the controller's potential. To this day few games live up to what a DualShock controller should feel like playing. With uni... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
Disgaea 2 is a true sequel, both for richer and for poorer. It's essentially the same gameplay as the original but with a new plot and some additions to the gameplay to give it an extra punch. While Disgaea 2 has some fa... Read Full Review0 of 1 users found the following review helpful
My aunt has a lot of PS2 games. Out of boredom one night, I chose to see if I could play anything she had. She asked me if there was anything I'd like to try and I found Katamari Damacy and asked if I could play it. She ... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Corny name aside, Sonic Colors takes everything the series has done right and throws it into one brilliant game.
A couple years ago, possibly even around this time last year, if I told you there would be a great 3D Sonic game that plays like a good 3D Sonic game should, you would laugh in my face. 2010 nears its close, and Sonic Te... Read Full Review6 of 6 users found the following review helpful
It's already been 10 years since Tactics arrived on PS1, but somehow it was made even better here. Final Fantasy Tactics starts you off in the dark, but if you figure out how to play the game, it can make for very immers... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This game was so hyped, and being an avid Sonic lover, I was psyched. Unfortunately, this game was a bigger mistake than Shadow The Hedgehog. I tried and tried while playing this to come out satisfied, but the game is ju... Read Full Review3 of 3 users found the following review helpful
Beware. If you bought Diamond/Pearl and are not a diehard fan of the series, this game has absolutely nothing to pull you in besides the Battle Frontier. For everyone else, this game may very well be the best Pokemon gam... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Touhou 6: Emodiment of Scarlet Devil is one game in a sea of danmaku: shooters with intense challenge, rhythm-making music, and addicting gameplay. While it has a few faults, EoSD is by and far a great game, and a lot of... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Though a bit sloppy on technical aspects and a bit short, Colosseum is a perfect side-trip of a Pokemon RPG.
Pokemon Colosseum is not a Pokemon Stadium game. So before reading this review, keep that in mind. That aside, have you ever wanted to play a Pokemon RPG that had a more interesting story? Well, Colosseum has an answer f... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
This port of Sonic Adventure... it's very buggy, and the graphics aren't quite as good. And that brings the game down.
After the release of Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast, Sonic once again returned to glory. Sonic Adventure was a great game; graphics, sound, and transitioning Sonic into 3D. Where did it all go when this game was ported ... Read Full Review7 of 7 users found the following review helpful
This unique puzzle title has its shortcomings, but it's sure to please puzzle geeks and Pokemon fans alike.

Even though there other contenders, Mario Kart Wii is arguably the best kart racer you'll find on the store shelves.
Every system generation, a Mario Kart game graces that new console, and every time, it sells like wildfire. But most of the time, the Mario Kart games are just tide-overs, and personally I would grow tired of them after ... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful

Super Mario World was the first Mario game to start a "tradition" of one true Mario game per console cycle. It was the premier game of the SNES, and came packaged with some at one point. It's that way for good reason: it... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
A decent game, but it's too short. It's the middle brother of the 5 main Game Gear titles Sonic's mug is on.
The Game Gear was a relatively good home for Sonic when he wasn't busy busting up Mecha Sonic or blasting through the Emerald Hill Zone. Sonic Blast, not to be confused with Sonic 3D Blast, was one of 5 different vintage... Read Full Review2 of 3 users found the following review helpful

This is the second game Sonic game on Genesis/MegaDrive. While it's not the best Sonic game, it is the most addicting.
The second Sonic. The second take on one of gaming's most iconic mascots to ever be concieved. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 took Sonic 1, touched up the graphics a little, gave a new attack called the Spin Dash, AND gave you new... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
Super Mario Bros. 2 is a disgrace to the other Mario games of the NES era. Still, it is a solid game.

It's a clone of Puyo Puyo, but Mean Bean Machine delivers a lot of Sonic-skinned puzzler fun. (more inside)
Back in 1993, the Sonic series took a puzzle game and skinned it to match its universe. The result was Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, where you match up similarly colored beans to make chains and combos. As far as puz... Read Full Review1 of 3 users found the following review helpful
