The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis
Is it a Puzzel Game or a Platformer?
I will be the first to admit, I did not play Mario vs. Donkey Kong... I wanted to, but never got around to it. This time around, I did not want to miss my chance. I saw that it was on sale at my loc...
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
The joy of seeing a new adventure game on the market

Where did I put that chainsaw controller?

Grids, boxes and a stylus.
Puzzle games will always have a home on portable systems. They are short, do not have a plot and can be played for a couple of minutes or a couple of hours. Polarium is a title that fits all of the ...
Shadow Hearts: From the New World
An RPG for those who like a little more activity in an RPG.
The Shadow Hearts series is a relative newcomer to the platform RPG market. With only three installments, it is a mere infant compared to the Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest series, but Shadow Hearts i...

A Well Thought-out Sequel to Kingdom Hearts
The Kingdom Hearts series hit the shelves about four years ago. It was an ambitious project that combined the legends of the Squaresoft Final Fantasy series with assorted Disney franchises. Some peo...
Shadow Hearts II
An RPG requiring twitch-reflexes.
RPG's have to do a lot to try to set each other apart. All of them pretty much have similar foundations in game play, so new mechanics must be created that are user friendly and kept the player inter...
Metroid Prime 2: Echoes
More of the Same Has Its Pluses and Minuses
Once word traveled down the information superhighway that Nintendo was working on a sequel to Metroid Prime, the phantom pain of blisters of past resurfaced. Few games over the past several years bro...
Praise for a FPS from Someone Who Hates FPS's.
To this day a First Person Shooter (referred to as a FPS from here out) will cause me nausea in the form of motion sickness. I am not sure what truly causes it for me, but it happens more times than ...
One of Phil Hartman's Last Projects
The reason why I bought this game was because Phil Hartman played the voice of the main character. I had little interest in the plot, game play, other reviews, it had Phil Hartman. If you have ever ...
Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
Not Quite an RPG and Not a Platformer

Simple Concept/Highly Addictive
Puzzle games are a long standing tradition for portable systems dating back to the original GameBoy. I was one of the Tetris junkies; I am not afraid to admit it. With each no portable I own at leas...
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town
How in the world is this game so entertaining?
When I first heard the concept of this game I could not believe that someone created a video game about farming. Upon further research I learned that someone not only created a game about farming, th...
The Curse of Monkey Island
The Pinnacle of Adventure Gaming

Final Fantasy IV Advance
A full RPG, just pocket size.
I am going to type something that may shock long standing fans of the Final Fantasy series. I have never played Final Fantasy II/IV. Yes, how could that be? Well, the title came out when I was enli...
The Typing of the Dead
Zombies to the left of me! Zombies to the right! What will save me? My keyboard!
I will come right out and say it, I am a terrible typist. I never learned to correctly use a keyboard and I now use a unique six finger and a thumb technique that I have never seen another human bein...
If you were ever over to my house, yes I know this will not happen, you would see my collection of DVD's. It is a combination of Simpson DVD's, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and horror movies. My collectio...
Great Way to Pass the Time
There is not a whole lot of NGage representation on this site... Heck on any site for that matter. It is a struggling system, if you really want to call it that. I mainly use it as a phone, but it i...
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
The Longest Game I Never Finished
If you have read any of my past reviews you should have noticed that I am a fan of the RPG. Having an XBox there is not a whole lot of RPG options. So, when I got my XBox, the first title I picked u...
Jet Set Radio Future
Great Music, Unique Game Play
I will admit that I own, not owned, but own a Sega Dreamcast. I do not want to call myself a Sega fan boy, but I owned a Genesis, Saturn and eventually the Dreamcast. I think what separates me from ...
Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee
Not the zenith of the series, but entertaining.
The Oddworld series has been adding a unique flair on the video games for the past several years. Between the odd looking characters, the deep story lines and great visuals, they are a good entertain...
Klaymen Klaymen 2: Skullmonkey no Gyakushuu (Riverhill Best)
Clamation has always fascinated me. There is just something about moving clay. So, when I saw this game, in the bargain bin, I thought that I give it a shot. The visuals on the back cover looked in...
Dragon Quest VIII: Sora to Umi to Daichi to Norowareshi Himegimi
An RPG gamer's game
Ah, the role playing game, if there was one item that has caused me to lose more sleep or not get enough sunshine, an RPG would be it. I have clocked hundreds of hours playing then dating all the way...
The Simpsons: Hit & Run
The game Simpson's fans have waited for.
Read my profile, I am a fan of the Simpsons. What is unique is that even though that I am a huge fan of the show, this is actually the first Simpsons video game I have ever purchased. To begin, ...
My image icon needs to have a review.
Platform games are a genre that has been around since the NES days with the release of Super Mario Brothers. It is hard to create a game in this genre without it appearing like a rip-off to the serie...
Tales of Symphonia
An RPG for the RPG devoid CameCube
The Super Nintendo was the Mecca for RPG's in the 16-but era, but with the release of the N64, RPG's stopped appearing on Nintendo platforms. Granted there were a few here and there, but the selectio...
A great title for action-RPG fans and classic RPG fans alike
For me, RPG's are a way of life; all other titles are second runners-up. I am always in the market for a new RPG, but there are just so many Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest clones out there that it ca...
Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)
A balanced blend of silly and skill.
I personally have never been a huge fan of racing games. There is just something not satisfying to me about going around and around a track to have the one goal of finishing the lap ahead of everyone...
