    Could have been better ... well ... a lot better

    Marvel Super Hero Squad

    Could have been better ... well ... a lot better

    When I first heard that this title's gameplay is going to be like Super Smash Bro's I was stunned and said to myself: "It's about time" and immediately followed it up by saying that "I'm going to wait for this game". How... Read Full Review

    A step in the right direction

    WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010

    A step in the right direction

    WWE SVR is a game that gets better and better every year on the DS as it tries to push the unit to its limits by packing as much content possible on a heavily underpowered system. This year, we are greeted with the lates... Read Full Review

    Layton Kyouju to Akuma no Hako

    An immersive puzzle game that is hard to put down

    The original release of this game (The Curious Village) was one of the few games that I was able to play but didn't have enough time to review. Now that this second version is out, I have decided to share my opinion on h... Read Full Review

    A game that indeed has a lot of heart

    Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

    A game that indeed has a lot of heart

    Kingdom Hearts is to be honest a game that I thought I will not enjoy since I'm one of the few people out there who isn't a fan of Square Enix's games. And yes, that includes the popular Final Fantasy series. Well, if I ... Read Full Review

    MySims Agents

    Has pretty much the same quality as other MySims title ... but not in a good way.

    MySims is a series that is known for its simplified gameplay style of The Sims franchise that is supposed to appeal to the younger audience. Although I may not be the best person to give such titles a review, I still thi... Read Full Review

    DiRT 2

    Should have spent more time in the oven

    Mario Kart seems to be the only racing game on the DS that was able to pull it off and has proven that it's possible to have an enjoyable racing game on the said unit. A lot of other kart and arcade type of racing games ... Read Full Review

    This game has the "buy me now" label printed all over it

    Old-school goodness that you shouldn't miss

    MySims Racing

    Not enough oomph to stomp Mario off his kart throne

    When I saw the teaser video of this game a few months ago, I thought it could be a good candidate for an okay (at best) kart racer. Given how disappointed I was with many of the Sims games released on the DS, I really wa... Read Full Review

    Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

    Fun for the first few minutes. But at least you get to use your DS upside-down for a change

    After trying out Showtime Boxing from a friend's DS, I really believed that it couldn't get any worse than that. So eventhough this game pits you to duke it out with animals, I gave it a shot. And waddya know, it's actua... Read Full Review
