    A better game than you would expect.

    Disney's The Little Mermaid

    A better game than you would expect.

    Back in the early '90s, Capcom produced some incredibly enjoyable games based on Disney properties like DuckTales and Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers. Of these Disney-Capcom games, The Little Mermaid is one of the most overlo... Read Full Review

    Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword gets both the Nintendo DS hardware and the Ninja Gaiden franchise right.

    Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword

    Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword gets both the Nintendo DS hardware and the Ninja Gaiden franchise right.

    There are so many games that sound like a perfect fit for the Nintendo DS hardware. Ninja Gaiden is not one of these. An entirely touch screen screen controlled version of an incredibly gory and graphically powerful game... Read Full Review

    AKA, Resident Evil - Waggle Edition.

    BioHazard 4: Wii Edition

    AKA, Resident Evil - Waggle Edition.

    Every once in a while, there comes a game which completely re-invents a franchise. Metroid Prime did for Metroid, Symphony of the Night did it for Castlevania, and then Resident Evil 4 came along and turned not just Resi... Read Full Review

    The best Crash Bandicoot game ever? No, not quite...

    Crash Bandicoot 3 (PSOne Books)

    The best Crash Bandicoot game ever? No, not quite...

    Poor, poor Crash. Once Sony's answer to Mario, you've now been reduced to starring in mindless beat-em-ups full of lame pop culture references. Thankfully, this is one of the better Crash games, though there's a few flaw... Read Full Review

    Who has a mediocre game,<br />
that's too short and in 2D?<br />
M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

    Mickey's Wild Adventure

    Who has a mediocre game,<br /> that's too short and in 2D?<br /> M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

    Mickey's Wild Adventure is a 2D platformer which lets you control Mickey Mouse through several worlds based on some of his classic cartoons. Sound familiar? That's because this is a port of Mickey Mania on the SNES, Mega... Read Full Review

    It's different, darker and a little bit disappointing

    Advance Wars: Days of Ruin

    It's different, darker and a little bit disappointing

    Just to clarify – this is not a review of Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, but Advance Wars: Dark Conflict, the European version. So Will's name is Ed, Rubinelle is Laurentian, Dusters are Fighters and Fighters are Intercepto... Read Full Review

    One of the best 3D platformers not just on the Playstation, but of all time.

    Spyro the Dragon

    One of the best 3D platformers not just on the Playstation, but of all time.

    Back in the 64 bit days, the 3D platformer was a relatively new genre, but one which already given birth to several of the era's best and loved games. Unfortunately for Sony, most of the decent platformers were on the Ni... Read Full Review

    Great graphics, great controls....shame about the rest, then.

    Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei

    Great graphics, great controls....shame about the rest, then.

    As a Zelda game, Phantom Hourglass is not great. It just can't hold up when compared to say, Ocarina of Time or A Link to the Past. In fact, compared to a lot of DS games, Phantom Hourglass isn't great and contrary to wh... Read Full Review

    A trip back in time to when platformers were all about fun. And extreme difficulty.

    Super Donkey Kong 2: Dixie & Diddy

    A trip back in time to when platformers were all about fun. And extreme difficulty.

    Donkey Kong Country 2 has to be the most enjoyably difficult game I've ever played. It makes me want to tear my hair out at some parts but I just keep coming back simply because it's so much fun to play. The story fo... Read Full Review

    Sets a new low for being true to the movie.

    The Blues Brothers

    Sets a new low for being true to the movie.

    The opening sentence of the game says it all. "Can you swim your way through a department store or unmask a goggled shark? Swooping birds force Jake and Elwood into lethal elevators and steep stairways as they battle... Read Full Review

    Somewhere over the rainbow....is a game far better than this one.

    Rainbow Islands: The Story of Bubble Bobble 2

    Somewhere over the rainbow....is a game far better than this one.

    Rainbow Islands is a game that is best described as kid-friendly. By that I mean that anyone over the age of five will look at it, laugh and then pass. That's probably not a bad thing, as there's not a whole lot they're ... Read Full Review

    Thank the heavens you probably haven't played it

    Master Karateka

    Thank the heavens you probably haven't played it

    Master Karateka is an incredibly obscure Japan-only Game Boy title. Don't even think for a second about importing this dated beat-em-up as you'd probably get more enjoyment with you Gameboy turned off, just pressing the ... Read Full Review

    Motocross Maniacs is a fun, but ultimately flawed portable racing experience

    Motocross Maniacs

    Motocross Maniacs is a fun, but ultimately flawed portable racing experience

    Let me just start by saying that Motocross Maniacs is, for the most part, very enjoyable. It does however have some fatal flaws which do ruin the experience somewhat. To understand these flaws, I have to briefly expla... Read Full Review

    Not bad, but simply lacking in staying power

    Flipull: An Exciting Cube Game

    Not bad, but simply lacking in staying power

    There are quite a lot of decent puzzle games for the Gameboy. There's Tetris, Dr. Mario, and then there's Flipull. Flipull, while certainly not a bad game, just can't hold up as well compared to these games and simply is... Read Full Review

    Puyo Puyo Fever

    Like Tetris on steroids

    Chances are you've played Puyo Pop before whether it be in its original form, Kirby's Avalanche or Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. Puyo Pop Fever however, is a completely different game altogether and while the core gamepl... Read Full Review

    Massive improvement on the Parappa formula.

    Um Jammer Lammy

    Massive improvement on the Parappa formula.

    The original Parappa the Rapper game on the Playstation introduced Western audiences to a new genre of gaming, the rhythm game. It was an exceptionally innovative game, but was too short and lacked polish and multiplayer... Read Full Review
