One of the greatest games I've ever played
Talk to people in my social circle - I'm closed minded annd stubborn. I love me some Nintendo, and to get me to play an XBOX 360 shooter RPG is an undertaking. But when I get out of my gaming comfort ...
New Super Mario Bros. U
Mario experts will be less excited by the latest NSMB game, but in its own right the game is quite good
My only real issue with this game is that its too easy, and that's been my chief complaint about NSMB from the beginning. The DS game was cool and I loved the quirky Wii game, but the NEW series reall...
Super Mario 3D Land
Its no Mario Galaxy, but Super Mario 3D Land creates an exciting albeit forgettable experience.
Mario has peaked since 2007. Super Mario Galaxy has set the stage for the release of some of the best Mario games I've ever played. While exciting and creative, Super Mario 3D Land fails to move beyon...
Tales of Graces f
Starts strong and gradually deteriorates
Ever felt cheated and lied to? Okay now how about from a video game? No? Well thats exactly what Graces F does. Graces F begins with a lot of promise. There are a bunch of kids who are friends a...
Final Fantasy XIII-2
An atmospheric triumph that rights its many flaws with a compelling villain and engrossing world
Final Fantasy 13 was a great game in that it took chances and refined the Final Fantasy formula to create new possibilities for the series. It wasn't the best told story in the series, nor was it as e...
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Unfortunately Skyward Sword lacks the key elements that compromise a great Zelda title
I was expecting a second coming of Majora's Mask from Skyward Sword. After Wind Waker's amazing sense of freedom, and Twilight Princess' bold return to Zelda's roots I looked at Skyward Sword as a gem...
Arc Rise Fantasia
Arc Rise Fantasia is one of those games that, despite huge flaws, will still emotionally entice gamers with its world.
Since Tales of Symphonia stole my heart on the GameCube in 2004, and arguably back in 1999 when I was sucked into Final Fantasy 7, JRPGs have been the one type of game that captivates me on all levels...
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
There are few remakes that shine as bright as the new Ocarina of Time
I was born in 1988 and was raised on Mario alone. As a result I never gave Zelda the time of day as a kid, and when Ocarina of Time was released I took one look at the screenshots and called it "Stupi...
Final Fantasy XIII
A delicious experience with a few flaws here and there
Final Fantasy 13 is odd. Expect to have the time of your life. This game is packed with non-stop action, and fairly well told story, and an epic scope. The game has powerful graphics - easily th...
Pocket Monsters Black
It isn't revolutionary, but Black is the best Pokemon title since Silver was released 10 years ago.
I'm sure you know the deal by now. 150 new creatures to catch, hours of grinding, the evil Team so-and-so, and the best part of the game - Gyms. Pokemon makes changes, and they are big. Its my favorit...
Chrono Cross (PSOne Books)
Our Planet's Dream Isn't Over Yet...
We're dealing with an RPG goliath. Many people dislike Chrono Cross - but I recommend you play it if you have an open mind and a willingness to see the world of Crono and company in a new light. WA...
Okami is unfortunate. It is beautiful and fun. It is also annoying, slow, long-winded, and repetitive. But its worth it.
All right guys, time for an opinion on Okami. I had fun with Okami. I played it until around the Snow Temple near the end, and then lost interest. This game is long, beautiful, and enjoyable. ...
Super Mario 64
You really can't beat it - even thirteen years later.
The Good: A successful transition to 3d that defies all odds; Levels and almost all aspects of the game are flawless... The Bad: Your first time playing a 3d Mario game will never return... I ca...
Wii Sports Resort (w/Wii MotionPlus)
Without Wii Motion Plus, this island would quickly be forgotten

Classic NES Series: Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
In the days following Twilight Princess, Adventure of Link feels irrelevant at best.
The Good: A good look into the past; Action is fun at times... The Bad: Dungeon layout is incredibly cheap; Putting lives into the game was a torturous choice; An overall step backward from the ori...
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons
Despite its shortcomings, you'll still love this game. That's all that really matters, isn't it?
The Good: Classic Zelda Formula; excellent dungeons... The Bad: ... That can get VERY frustrating later in the game; Focus on fighting doesn't fit a 2 dimentional title... Zelda began as a 2d se...

The Good: Simple, fun, battle system; Great visuals and sound; Looks and feels the part of a great mario game... The Bad: A little too short; A few segments drag a bit... These days, RPGs are a ...
Super Mario Sunshine
When all goes wrong, just squirt your way through goombas... yes, it's as bad as it sounds.
The Good: Excellent Platforming, Amazing Visuals... The Bad: Distinct Lack Of Variety; Voice Work And Music Are Sub-Par... "It's a sunny day, so let's go on a vacation!" To anyone but Mario, the...
Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge
A good time... for the first two hours.
The Good: First few levels are fun; challenge ramps up slowly... The Bad: Poorly paced; Very short; Later levels suck... Nothing like a good game of Banjo-Kazooie, right? Wrong. Unlike the gr...

Take Nuts n Bolts for a spin - you won't regret it.
Awesome: Vehicle creator has endless possibilities; Outstanding visuals and music; Tons of ways to complete tasks; Laugh out loud funny... Not so Awesome: Will likely disappoint Banjo purists; shak...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Brawl takes the Smash Bros. Series to new heights and makes the other entries completely obsolete in the process.
The Good: Great multiplayer fun; loads of unlockables; Overwhelming character roster.... The Bad: Visuals are barely upgraded from Melee; The Subspace Emissary sucks; Quite a few characters are sha...

Link's Crossbow Training
This is a really fun game for a while, but ultimately, it'll just leave you pondering about the Zapper's future uses.
The Good: A good variety of Twilight Princess Themed shooting; It's addicting; Free Zapper Included; Lots of levels... The Bad: The levels (and entire game) are kinda short; Certain game design cho...
Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei
There's a boatload of creativity and fun, but Phantom Hourglass simply doesn't match up to the Zelda namesake.
The Good: Touch screen controls are intuitive and fun; Boss fights are easy, yet awesome; There's a good deal of humor; Nostalgia galore... The Bad: The Temple of the Ocean King is frustrating; The...
Super Mario Galaxy
Flawless only begins to describe its brilliance.
In 1996, the world had a taste of what Nintendo could accomplish. Through a burst of creativity, Miyamoto lead the production on Super Mario 64. It became one of the greatest games of all time and is ...
Aside from a few minor problems, there's really nothing wrong with Blue Dragon.

It's a gigantic improvement, but it's also very far from perfect.
You’ve got to start somewhere The Good: Improved Minigames; A big step up from the past... The Bad: Awful board game designs; middling visuals and sound; hasn't been changed enough... ---------...
Tales of the Abyss
Tales of the Abyss makes up for ripping off other RPGs with fun gameplay, and a somewhat deep cast.
The Good: Good battle system; Great characters and humor; 'Interesting' story. The Bad: Awful Framerate; Riddled with cliches; Not nearly as compelling as Symphonia. -------------------------------...

The Good: Incredible use of the Wii Remote; Rabbids that you'll love and hate at the same time; Pretty lengthy for a party game; awesome sound quality... The Bad: The visuals are never be...
Super Paper Mario
SPM's unique gameplay is often killed in its tracks by lame ideas, deja vu, and less than stellar dialogue.

I'm afraid Wii Sports isn't so much a game as it is a really bare-bones demo.
