    Disney Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse

    Charming, magical, top-notch update of a classic.

    The team behind Castle of Illusion HD has a lot to be proud of; the care and inspiration and attention to detail in this HD update is quite amazing. "Charming" is a word you'll hear a lot in descriptions of this game, a... Read Full Review

    Ada Wong's 8-word review of RE6:

    Resident Evil 6

    Ada Wong's 8-word review of RE6:

    "Well, that was a pain in the ass..." ...and she's right on the money. Nothing in this mess of a game lives up to the standards of RE5 which, in spite of revisionist reviewers out there, was a very good game. I wa... Read Full Review

    Like a birthday cake with gummies, sprinkles... and sardines.

    Rock Band Blitz

    Like a birthday cake with gummies, sprinkles... and sardines.

    I've loved Rock Band from the beginning, and as my consoles have come and gone, I've owned and played the games on PS2, 360, Wii, PSP, and now PS3. In the transition, and life changes along the way, however, I no longer... Read Full Review

    After Burner Climax

    Hours of arcade fun, 12 intense minutes at a time...

    Yes, the newest After Burner game is shallow, flashy, and short. That's the bad news. The good news? It's fast, intense, and gorgeous to see in motion, and you can play it over and over again in the comfort of your ow... Read Full Review

    More fun than you can shake a shakey cam at...

    Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles is a blast. It looks great for a Wii game, and does a really good job of summarizing the two classic Resident Evil games on which it is based. Many have criticized the "shakey cam" e... Read Full Review

    Icarian: Kindred Spirits

    Highly polished, short but satisfying adventure.

    Lostwin... ahem, I mean NyxQuest is a gorgeous puzzle platformer that is well worth the purchase price. It is indeed similar to Lostwinds, the first game to appear on WiiWare over a year ago, but has enough unique perso... Read Full Review

    The Wii version of Rock Band 2 is just about perfect!

    Let me start this review with a bit of history about myself and the Rock Band series: I started with Rock Band on PS2, then got a 360 and played RB on that system, and had been enjoying the sequel immensely until my 360... Read Full Review

    Hard to find a fault in the retro goodness!

    I always loved the R-Type games, but never had the skills to get past the second level with the brutal Revival (Classic) respawn system. This package finally lets me see the later levels in both their original pixelly g... Read Full Review

    Too Frustrating to be Fun For Long

    To start this review out, let me say that I was really looking forward to this game; I love the "Get Even" idea of being the invaders, but actually playing the game is just too frustrating for me to recommend it to anyon... Read Full Review

    Blast Works: Build, Fuse & Destroy

    A great game for people with time, patience, and vision.

    I was excited about Blast Works from the moment I heard about it, and picked it up at the first opportunity. I grew up on arcade shooters like Gradius, R-Type, Raiden, and the like. While I was quickly frustrated and d... Read Full Review

    Hiite Utaeru DS Guitar ''M-06''

    For what it is, it's pretty good... but it's NOT a game.

    Jam Sessions is not a game, or a guitar simulator for the DS. It's a "strum simulator" with some built-in songs to act as a tutorial. That's really all the included songs are for, since there's no scoring or ... Read Full Review

    BioHazard: Deadly Silence (Limited Pack)

    Best version yet of a classic game.

    The bottom line is this: if you like RE and own a DS, then you should get this game. Yes, this is a ten-year-old game ported from the PSOne, so the gameplay and graphics are a little dated. However, this game looks g... Read Full Review
