    A good premise that isn't well executed.

    Osmos

    Rated on July 12, 2010 by jimkabrhel

    A good premise that isn't well executed.

    The goal of many of the levels of Osmos is to take your starting organism, a blue sphere and absorb other spheres which must be smaller than yours. Usually the main goal is to become the biggest or hu...

    A too-short puzzle game that could have been so much more.

    Fortix

    Rated on July 12, 2010 by jimkabrhel

    A too-short puzzle game that could have been so much more.

    Way, way, way back in my childhood (the 80s!), I played a game called Qix. A simple little game where you have to sequester an increasing amount of the game screen by created boxes with a cursor, whil...

    A simple, beautiful, inexpensive, addictive game.

    Shatter

    Rated on September 04, 2009 by jimkabrhel

    A simple, beautiful, inexpensive, addictive game.

    I was never very good at Breakout or Arkanoid, especially in my younger days. Thanks to years of gaming I finally have decent reflexes, so that when I go back and play those game, they seem a lot easi...

    A gorgeous, moving gaming experience.

    Final Fantasy X (Mega Hits!)

    Rated on September 20, 2008 by jimkabrhel

    A gorgeous, moving gaming experience.

    So many games have great game play of a certain type: RPG, racing, FPS. A great RPG is so much more than a great battle system, or visuals. A high quality story is vital, and FFX has a wonderful creat...

    An amazing story and RPG experience.

    Final Fantasy VIII (Platinum)

    Rated on September 20, 2008 by jimkabrhel

    An amazing story and RPG experience.

    When I first received my PS1, I spent a lot of time on 3D platformers and sports games. I was fortunate enough to get a copy of Brave Fencher Musashi (a good game in its own right), and a demo of FFVI...

    Great game, regardless of how many times you've played it!

    Super Mario Bros.

    Great game, regardless of how many times you've played it!

    Let's get to the point. I've played Super Mario Bros. in every for it's been released and re-released (SNES, GBC, etc.) and regardless of how many times I play, I still love it. Not only is the game i...

    Super Paper Mario

    Rated on May 05, 2007 by jimkabrhel

    Great gameplay and a witty, well written story create a unique gaming experience.

    Having played the first two Paper Mario games repeatedly (read: at least 6 times each), to say that I was eagerly awaiting SPM, is an understatement. Before dissecting the game proper, let me say that...

    The best role-playing game on the N64 and one of the greatest of all time.

    Mario Story

    Rated on April 12, 2007 by jimkabrhel

    The best role-playing game on the N64 and one of the greatest of all time.

    When I originally purchased my N64 (after the GameCube has already be released) I was searching for excellent games to play. I love all things Mario, so I took a shot at Paper Mario, not really knowin...

    The best platforming game since Super Mario World.

    New Super Mario Bros.

    Rated on April 12, 2007 by jimkabrhel

    The best platforming game since Super Mario World.

    Most of my favorite gaming memories revolve around the Mario universe. The first game I played on a Nintendo system was the original Super Mario Bros. and I've played almost every iteration that has c...

    This game is worth a good look.

    Elebits

    Rated on March 27, 2007 by jimkabrhel

    This game is worth a good look.

    When I finally got my hands on the Wii, I wanted to a game that really showed what the new Wii controller would do, so I purchased Twilight Princess and Elebits. I knew that Elebits would be a game I ...
