    Pokemon bids goodbye to the DS and to its past one final time.

    Pocket Monsters White 2

    Pokemon bids goodbye to the DS and to its past one final time.

    It's really hard to justify Pokemon Black 2 and White 2′s existence. To the Pokemon maniac, they come as a bit of a slap in the face, coming off barely a year after the incredible Pokemon Black/White, and flying in... Read Full Review

    It may be the most modern and different Dragon Quest game yet, but it remains the truest JRPG we've had in years.

    Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest provide for a fascinating study in contrasts. Both are classic RPG franchises, over two decades old, and both have churned out consistently great games over the years. Both of these have, o... Read Full Review

    In the end, ModNation Racers really is what it is- a kart racer that may not be extraordinary, but is certainly unique.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized is, without question, the best first person shooter available on the system.

    The World Ends With You is a solid and enjoyable ride of sheer perfection from start to finish.

    Square Enix likes to milk its franchises- a lot. After over a hundred Final Fantasy titles, tons of Dragon Quest games and a plethora of Kingdom Hearts spin offs, that much at least becomes very clear. And while gamers a... Read Full Review
