    Doom meets Zelda. Welcome to the controlled demolition of Resident Evil 4.

    BioHazard 4

    Doom meets Zelda. Welcome to the controlled demolition of Resident Evil 4.

    Gamers say that RE is a 'Survival Horror' series; this is the genre. But this was back in the day when the games had 2D backgrounds, scarce resources, and many jump-out-of-your-chair moments. The gauntlet put down by... Read Full Review

    In Picross 3D you play the role of an omniscient paleontologist who is presented with many mysterious stone cubes. These stone cubes are like living puzzles that require careful observation and investigation with the D... Read Full Review

    A strange and otherworldy space to involve yourself in. Heavenly and ephemeral.

    El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

    A strange and otherworldy space to involve yourself in. Heavenly and ephemeral.

    'El Shaddai' is ancient Hebrew for 'the word of God'. It is a game where you play the role of a human named Enoch who was so angelic on earth that he got called up to heaven to work as a scribe for God. The dilemma ... Read Full Review

    The Lost Levels is a story of courage as each jump, heart in mouth, could mean the end.

    Super Mario Bros. 2

    The Lost Levels is a story of courage as each jump, heart in mouth, could mean the end.

    There's one simple goal in Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels (hereafter referred to as SMB: TLL) and that is: reach the exit. This is the key act that perpetuates and concludes the narrative, of which is rather myste... Read Full Review

    Child of Eden

    A transcendental experience

    Eden refuses to be a regular game. It makes you forget about yourself and your thoughts by merging your consciousness into living, breathing, organic landscapes. Through ecstatic, sensory overload you lose the mind that ... Read Full Review

    Shadow of the Colossus

    it disrupts convention, dismantling the adventure genre to build its own story, its own opinion on what games should be.

    Shadow of the colossus – review *heavily descriptive review; may spoil slightly* Shadow of the colossus is not a sequel to the PS2's 2001, cult-hit platformer, ico. Even though it came after ico, SotC appe... Read Full Review

    Tori to Mame

    an interesting, extremely well-paced, and tightly balanced game about climbing, building and sustaining.

    pyoro (or birds and beans) tells the story of a creator of a small rectangular world that hovers in space. it's a story about nature's triumph over so-called civilization, or to put it simply, fate. nature just sits th... Read Full Review

    Kirby's Epic Yarn

    epic yarn celebrates but also transcends the platformer.

    When you first look at or play epic yarn assumptions begin to form about the type of game it is, especially if you're a long-time player. If you look at it, with its baby blue hues, diffuse pinks, and watery turquo... Read Full Review

    an ambitious experiment and a minature work of art, but ultimately unsatisfying.

    i went into this metroid with no expectations. i'm always happy to accept that any game series has to evolve and change to keep fresh, so i'm definately not one of those people who are stubborn about 'how things shou... Read Full Review

    How do you follow up Super Mario bros. 3? For many people it was the epitome of the series. It expanded on the classic Super Mario Bros. platforming formula by fleshing out Mario's universe, his special powers, a... Read Full Review

    amazing. an inspiration, and an antidote to 'epic'.

    LSD is a quirky, insane game. it's in first person and you wander around strange and varied dream environments. nothing really makes any sense, and touching walls warps you to other completely different places. somet... Read Full Review

    And Yet It Moves

    run, jump, turn, land, orbit, skid, fall, crash, stumble, escape...

    In 'and yet it moves' the character trundles along at a bumbling pace. He is flat and weightless. He can jump with '1' (wiimote held horizontally), but is pretty useless otherwise. It's good then that the player can pres... Read Full Review

    you'll enjoy it if you come with an open mind and no expectations. a very charming and original game.

    this is essentially a game about trimming, clipping and styling 'humanoid vegetables' like you would a bonzai tree. the wii remote is great at this task, because of its accute sensitivity and the fact that it feels... Read Full Review
