    Monopoly will bankrupt your patience.

    How do you frustrate gamers? Many heads over at EA have spent countless hours thinking about that one. In 2008, Electronic Arts released what could be deemed the best digital rendition of the classic game Monopoly. It wa... Read Full Review

    Metal Slug XX is marketed as a bargain, which is a load of crap. If you want a bargain, get Metal Slug Anthology.

    If results where an indicator of a military organization's allegiance, then the Peregrine Falcons are a clear product of the American Military Industrial Complex; they've been fighting the same enemy for years without su... Read Full Review

    It could be better, but at €3.99 you won't kick yourself too hard if you end up being disappointed.

    There's something to be said about PSP Minis, but nothing comes to mind… Probably because they're not really supposed to invoke much thought from the average human being, or emotional investment, though I sometimes wish ... Read Full Review

    A decent game for any household but doesn't offer enough to merit being purchased anew.

    The Price is Right returns, and as you can imagine, it doesn't revolutionize the previous installment in any way. In fact, it has taken the Unreal Tournament yearly annotation principle and started releasing the same gam... Read Full Review

    When the classic winning formula that made the franchise so great isn't there anymore, can it still be called a port?

    Strikers 1945 Plus Portable

    When the classic winning formula that made the franchise so great isn't there anymore, can it still be called a port?

    This time I'll skip the usual intro formalities of a review (you know, going over a brief history of the genre, developer or current trends) because Arc System Works pretty much did the same with their latest port. Strik... Read Full Review
