    While it stumbles here and there, simply the idea of it wins it enough awards to warrant a purchase.

    Scribblenauts

    While it stumbles here and there, simply the idea of it wins it enough awards to warrant a purchase.

    Story: You're a Scribblenaut! It's never quite explained where you come from or what your goal is, and I personally think a story, even if it's as wacky and unreal as say Elite Beat Agents or LittleBigPlanet, would have... Read Full Review

    Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 1: Homestar Ruiner

    It's hard for me to review this game because it truly is an inside joke. If you like homestar runner, you'll like this.

    Story: Strong Bad checks his email like he does on an almost weekly basis to find a request about beating the snot out of Homestar. Sounds like your typical SBmail? Well, it is. For the first in what's going to be a ser... Read Full Review

    The battles have a lot to them, but overall the world and new pokemon feel poor and like a second thought.

    Before I begin note: I have not played a pokemon since silver, so I may claim some features are new that actually are not. Story: This is the lowest point of the game. I will flat out say it, this story sucks. The le... Read Full Review

    Gyrostarr

    There are games a reviewer will dread playing, but has to because it's not professional to stop before the game is over.

    Story is cut because it has no story. It probably would have indirectly helped the game a little to have had a story though. Right now, every enemy is an indistinguishable shape with no real design to it, and every level... Read Full Review

    It feels like Phoenix Wright in a few too many areas, but it's the most refreshing take on the series in a while.

    An all too familiar sequel that fans must play but won't make new fans out of anyone else.
