    Let me show you how I push my wood.

    Over the past few years, EA has continually impressed gamers and critics alike by implementing dual-analog controls in the most unlikely places. They brought us razor-sharp pugilistic action in Fight ...

    Don't even bother. Get a standalone Wii remote and put the ten bucks saved toward a more competent minigame collection.

    Hajimete no Wii (w/Remote)

    Rated on July 15, 2007 by ShenlongBo

    Don't even bother. Get a standalone Wii remote and put the ten bucks saved toward a more competent minigame collection.

    It's too simple and uninteresting for seasoned gamers and adult gaming newcomers, too difficult for young 'uns, and handily outpaced by other minigame collections. Wii Play fails in every meaningful w...

    Virtual Kasparov just barely succeeds as a video game, and only because it is based on a timeless masterpiece.

    Virtual Kasparov

    Rated on October 07, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    Virtual Kasparov just barely succeeds as a video game, and only because it is based on a timeless masterpiece.

    Virtual Kasparov is a little-known game for the GameBoy Advance whose title is derived from Garry Kasparov – the most famous name in chess. It hit the scene some five years ago without much notice an...

    What StarFox really needs is to flip a u-turn and go back to the rail-shooter greatness it used to be.

    Star Fox Command

    Rated on September 25, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    What StarFox really needs is to flip a u-turn and go back to the rail-shooter greatness it used to be.

    The Star Fox series has long been divided between two extremes. On the extreme right you have the classics: Star Fox on the Super Nintendo, and its sequel on the Nintendo 64. On the left, the outcas...

    Hypnotic, even at supersonic speeds.  Don't blink.

    F-Zero GX

    Rated on September 02, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    Hypnotic, even at supersonic speeds. Don't blink.

    Somewhere in the area of the mid-nineties, the SNES hosted the release of the original F-Zero. Its popularity skyrocketed, as gamers were instantly taken by the games stout challenge and futuristic r...

    War is garbage in this poor, poor excuse for an Advance Wars spinoff.

    Battalion Wars

    Rated on August 26, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    War is garbage in this poor, poor excuse for an Advance Wars spinoff.

    Battalion Wars was originally introduced under a different name as a spin-off of the GameBoy Advance's stellar Advance Wars series. It strays from its handheld roots, foregoing the tried-and-true, tur...

    Shadow of the Colossus blurs the line between what is game and what is art.

    Shadow of the Colossus

    Rated on August 06, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    Shadow of the Colossus blurs the line between what is game and what is art.

    In 2001, developer SCEA blew a breath of fresh air into the stagnating video game market when they released the sleeper hit, ICO. Sharing the market with a heap of me-too titles and countless sequels...

    New Super Mario Bros.

    Rated on June 10, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    Rekindles the flame of a bygone era. With fireballs!

    It started to look like Mario might never shelve the sporting goods and party favors, but his lovely princess friend has gotten herself stolen away yet again. Finally! And what more reason does Mari...

    It's not a perfect game by any stretch, but developer Fuse Games made this unimaginable duo work splendidly.

    Metroid Prime Pinball (w/Rumble Pak)

    Rated on April 17, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    It's not a perfect game by any stretch, but developer Fuse Games made this unimaginable duo work splendidly.

    Of all of Nintendo's mascots, Samus Aran of Metroid fame has to be the most no-nonsense, serious-as-a-heart attack character of them all. Why it is, then, that Nintendo would allow for her to be drop...

    Tetris hasn't changed much, but fun NIntendo themes and interesting new modes bring it new life on the DS.

    Tetris DS

    Rated on April 11, 2006 by ShenlongBo

    Tetris hasn't changed much, but fun NIntendo themes and interesting new modes bring it new life on the DS.

    Twenty-something years, and more remakes than you can shake a stick at, and the gaming masses still haven't tired of Tetris' simple, addictive gameplay. And since that famed gameplay was made so popu...

    Eight-player LAN, free WiFi internet play, and downright brilliant gameplay more than warrant all the wanton excitement.

    Mario Kart DS (DS Bundle)

    Rated on November 27, 2005 by ShenlongBo

    Eight-player LAN, free WiFi internet play, and downright brilliant gameplay more than warrant all the wanton excitement.

    Owners of Nintendo's fledgling dual-screened handheld machine could not have been more elated by the initial announcement, subsequent hype, and the eventual release of Mario Kart DS. Although this in...

    Gamers longing for a nice 2D fighter and can adapt to the GCN control setup shouldn't hesitate to give EO a try.

    Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO: Millionaire Fighting 2001

    Rated on November 29, 2004 by ShenlongBo

    Gamers longing for a nice 2D fighter and can adapt to the GCN control setup shouldn't hesitate to give EO a try.

    In the beginning, there was Street Fighter II. And arcade fans around the world saw Street Fighter II and they saw that it was good. Damn good. The best even. There have since been many new rendit...

    Anyone with even a marginal interest in action/adventure or shooter games needs to experience Metroid Prime.

    Metroid Prime

    Rated on November 08, 2004 by ShenlongBo

    Anyone with even a marginal interest in action/adventure or shooter games needs to experience Metroid Prime.

    Metroid Prime is bar-none one of the best games of our generation, and it is sure to be noted a classic by gamers for years to come. The game starts off with a thinly veiled tutorial that serves to...
