    Need for Speed: Shift

    It's one of those Gamespot reviews nobody really understands...

    We all know these. They said Ratchet & Clank on the PSP had "too much variety", remember that one? Anyway, Shift. It is a good game. A great game. A simulator that doesn't take itself too seriously for its own good. N... Read Full Review

    Brothers In Arms DS

    Double standards and reviewer quirks make Gamespot's offiial review inaccurate.

    See, Gamespot has been reworking their review guidelines for a long time. It's good that they're making the effort, but though text reviews and video reviews in this site are still valid tools to get info on games, score... Read Full Review

    Toe Jam and Earl the first did a lot of things right. Let me get that out of the way first, because what's coming below is a good dose of naked, ugly truth and I don't want you to think I hated the game. OK, so it did... Read Full Review

    The gaming equivalent of having a spider drown in your drink. While you're drinking it.

    Vicarious Visions is a lousy developer. The Wii version of Spider-man 3 they perpetrated is borderline broken, but you can still play through it. Now, the DS version is actually getting some good reviews despite VV's inv... Read Full Review

    Spider-Man 3

    A flawed game that falls short of its prequels.

    It seems this game is a love it or hate it thing. The truth, however, seems to lie somewhere in between. This isn't a broken game, but it's not actually fun except in small moments that are few and far between. First,... Read Full Review

    Before Geometry Wars even existed, there was Crimsonland

    And, really, that's all you need to know about this game. It's a gory Geometry Wars with some nods to Fallout 2 in the form of "perks" that you can use to level up your character. The flow of the game is the sa... Read Full Review

    How do you rate a game that doesn't do justice to its prequel but is still a ways above the competition?

    Apparently pretty high, by GS's standards, but I'm writing this to come up with my own opinion, not regurgitate anybody else's. First, let's get one thing out of the way. This game is worse than Sands of Time. Artisti... Read Full Review

    The Story of Thor: Hikari o Tsugu Mono

    Cult classic and probably the best Genesis game EVER.

    While I write this there's a 6.7 average score for this game on Gamespot and I honestly don't know why. This was the closest a SEGA fanboy ever got to Zelda and, while it's shallower and less interesting in some aspects,... Read Full Review

    If the PSP can do this, then every other game is far too expensive.

    Size Matters is a Ratchet & Clank game. Period. Everything you'd expect from the PS2 games is here, and then some. There' s no sign of the stripped down feeling Daxter gave out, or the bare bones, bare minimum every ... Read Full Review
