    Hotel Dusk: Room 215

    An impressive story will let you weather through the rougher parts of this entertaining adventure.

    Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is the definition of an under appreciated gem just waiting to be played. The game has an outstanding visual style and good music, but most of all it has a heart that makes up for any of its shortcomi... Read Full Review

    Trusty Bell: Chopin no Yume

    Beautiful art design and a gorgeous soundtrack creates a world that should be experienced by everyone.

    Frederic Chopin's work is regarded as some of the hardest to play for the piano. They require precise movements, quick speed, and a dazzling skill -- but if the three can come together, a masterful sound is created at th... Read Full Review

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl

    Super Smash Brothers has always been an in depth and ridiculously addicting series: but the newest installment takes "addiction" to a whole new level. The gameplay is simple, but amazingly in depth. One finds themsel... Read Full Review

    Bokujou Monogatari

    This game is almost unsettlingly addicting.

    It takes some guts to buy "Harvest Moon", if you buy your purchases just based on what the game is about. You play as a farmer, whose parents leave for two and a half years (it's never explained), and they give you a ran... Read Full Review

    WarioWare is a solid game that relies on its humor to succeed.

    WarioWare would seem like the perfect fit for the Wii -- the controls of the Wii-mote are simply made for mini-games. But only die-hard mini-game fanatics or those looking for a great drinking game will come away happy. ... Read Full Review

    Phantom Hourglass delivers on most facets of the game - just get ready to hunker down at parts.

    Phantom Hourglass, is in my opinion, one of the must-have games for the Nintendo DS. It has incredible graphics: the cel-shaded look that hearkens back to Wind Waker still looks great on the DS. The stylus controls are s... Read Full Review

    When a game features Mario, you think it'll be good... but you never expect it to be this good.

    Maplestory's problems outweigh its strengths by so much, it ends up being a thoroughly mediocre game.

    Maplestory is a proud game, simply for its boast that it's the most successful 2-D game out there. I'm not sure if I'd be too proud. There are only two main problems with Maplestory, and they're pretty easy to gath... Read Full Review

    An incredible game, that despite its caliber, still manages to fall short of the other games in the series.

    Paper Mario is a classic. Its sequel is a classic. So, knowing this, it's pretty easy to be disappointed when something still comes out great - just a bit shorter than its predecessors. The game uses an interesting 2D... Read Full Review
