    Gradius

    Gradius will get you high on adrenaline within seconds and successive highs will only last longer and longer...

    Playing Gradius is like having an infinite supply of micro adrenaline doses that you can pop anytime and just dig the ephemeral high as often as you like. Sometimes the high is really short-lived as your space ship gets... Read Full Review

    Serious Sam: The First Encounter

    Serious gamers, enter here. Those looking for story time and tralala orchestral music don't bother.

    Guns, guns and guns, baby. This game is all about'em and don't you dare to bother me about anything else while I'm playing. Serious Sam is a very serious game and I'm a very serious man. I just can't be bothered. I n... Read Full Review

    "And if things don't go well, Mr. Adams?"<br />

    The Conduit

    "And if things don't go well, Mr. Adams?"<br />

    Hype is a funny little animal. It is always premature. Hype is born months, sometimes years before it can be rightfully replaced by the game for which it exists. It is always amusing to see a game struggle to replace ... Read Full Review

    Ratchet & Clank (Platinum)

    It is a very charming game and the first half is a delight, but chores rhyme with bores and time is precious, reader.<br

    The thing about 3D games with gameplay similar to 2D games is that…well…2D games tend to be more fun and consistent. 3D platformers are not easy to design; that is a given, but somehow all that effort, high budget and h... Read Full Review

    Sonic Rush

    As far as Sonic is concerned, it doesn't get any better than this. The thrill has staying power, my friends.<br />

    I've always been fascinated by Sonic games, they always tend to be very straight-forward and short, yet I find myself re-playing the same levels over and over again just because the thrill is everlasting. At the height ... Read Full Review

    The road to becoming a ninja is long and arduous...but in 8-bit it only takes a week!<br />

    Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari

    The road to becoming a ninja is long and arduous...but in 8-bit it only takes a week!<br />

    I must admit, I have a soft spot for single digits. Something about the term "8-bit" just fills my heart with warmth and sympathy. In my case, this has nothing to do with nostalgia since my first console was the Super ... Read Full Review

    Pokemon is the perfect game for a kid, but it is great fun for anyone willing to invest themselves into it.

    Pokemon Blue Version

    Pokemon is the perfect game for a kid, but it is great fun for anyone willing to invest themselves into it.

    Being a kid is great. Everything old becomes new, and nothing fails to impress you. Fireworks are magical, the world of insects is a marvellous universe, and yellow snow is not for eating. But some things are remember... Read Full Review

    Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

    Don't miss out on this sleeper hit!

    Zack and Wiki is an easy game to overlook, a perfect example of poor localization. But, once you give it a chance, it will grow on you, it will charm you and you'll remember it as one of the most unique games you've eve... Read Full Review

    LostWinds

    This is the kind of game we all bought a Wii for.<br /> Very ambitious and promising.

    This is it, a hell of a start to a new franchise that promises to entertain us for many years to come. In LostWinds you play as a boy named Toku and you quickly gain control of the wind spirit Enril. The land of Mistra... Read Full Review

    In the mid eighties, a young Shigeru Miyamoto was working on two games concurrently. One of these was to be a linear platform game featuring an Italian plumber, but the second game he was working on was to be the antith... Read Full Review

    Klonoa is like a gameplay poem.  It spirals and shifts, it turns and lifts.  It makes me happy and never drags.

    Kaze no Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

    Klonoa is like a gameplay poem. It spirals and shifts, it turns and lifts. It makes me happy and never drags.

    Videogames are made to entertain us, and possibly convey certain emotions while exploring common themes. Often, these themes are presented to us in the form of inter-game or in-game cut-scenes featuring archetypical cha... Read Full Review

    No More Heroes

    If Tarantino ever made a beat'em up…

    No More Heroes is an eccentric and self-indulgent beat'em up style game that puts you in the shoes of an up and coming bounty hunter named Travis Touchdown. As it happens, an attractive (and possibly Slavic) woman that ... Read Full Review
