    The story is one of the most beautiful ever told, and the game world is as immersive as it gets.

    Games have adopted a certain stereotype over the years. To the non-gamer, a video game is often defined as a mindless means of entertainment that usually involves shooting or jumping. Just look at modern shows and sitc... Read Full Review

    This frustrating and rather lackluster KH title is an extremely disappointing addition to the series.

    Kingdom Hearts Re:coded

    This frustrating and rather lackluster KH title is an extremely disappointing addition to the series.

    Since Kingdom Hearts II was released in 2005, fans have waited for a KH title to actually progress the plot of the series. Since KH2, three titles have been released-each going *back* in time, filling plot holes. These... Read Full Review

    Donkey Kong Country Returns

    Retro resurrects one of the greatest platformers of all time and does it more than justice.

    In 1994 Nintendo released a Super Nintendo platformer developed by Rare featuring everyone's favorite ape: Donkey Kong. The game was a smash hit selling over eight million copies worldwide making it the best selling SNE... Read Full Review

    Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

    Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep tops the perfection that was Kingdom Hearts II in almost every way.

    Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep is a prequel to the KH series, taking place ten years before the original game. In this time period, the worlds are protected by Jedi-like peacekeepers called Keyblade Wielders. There was... Read Full Review

    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Super Mario Galaxy 2 isn't just a game. It IS gaming.

    When Super Mario Galaxy 2 was announced, I was almost shocked at myself for how much I really didn't care. It wasn't like I didn't want to play the game, but, to me, this wasn't a new Mario platformer. This looked like... Read Full Review

    While Sega hasn't destroyed this Sonic title, they still haven't learned to not fix it, if it ain't broke.

    Sonic Unleashed

    While Sega hasn't destroyed this Sonic title, they still haven't learned to not fix it, if it ain't broke.

    The Wii version of Sonic Unleashed is said to be a decent game, unlike it's 360 and PS3 counterparts. The game had gotten average scores, so I never thought about paying full price. When I found it at a yard sale, howe... Read Full Review

    Bit. Trip Beat is a unique, immersive game that sports more longenevity than you might think.

    I called it. When I first saw the concept for Gajin's first game, Bit Trip Beat, I deemed it an instant win. Super-difficult pong set to chiptone music. It was almost the coolest thing I've ever seen, and here's the ... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros. Wii

    NSMBWii takes Mario back to his roots, with the addition of four-player multiplayer.

    Mario's going back to his roots on a console system. Yep, that's right. We haven't seen a traditional 2D Mario game for a home console since Super Mario World (1991). Mario's classic formula is back on the Wii, but do... Read Full Review
