The Last Remnant
Decent story, but extremely boring to play.
This is a square enix game, so it has some Final Fantasy polish to it, in the graphics and sound department. The environments are VERY similiar to FFXII for the PS2. Thats what this game reminded me o...
Just what you'd expect from a Burnout PSP game.
The Good: Sharp graphics. Great sense of speed. Lots missions. Burnout chains. The Bad: No pursuit or crash modes. Not as many missions as Legends. Review: This is my 2nd Burnout game ever pla...
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
A great game no doubt, but not all its cracked up to be.
Yes, the game has great graphics, and yes, it tells an interesting story for fans of Final Fantasy and especially fans of FF7. But the game is pretty short for RPG standards, clocking in around 10 hou...
Guild Wars: Eye of the North
More of the same, moreso for the hardcore this time
This game is just what you'd expect from the latest Guild Wars expansion. Its bigger and better, depending on your needs. This is the only expansion where you have to own a copy of one of the three o...
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Too much puzzle-solving and not enough action or story for me.
The Good: Clean graphics and audio for it's time. The Bad: Too much puzzle-solving slows down the action and overall game. The Review: Well, I can see why this game was a hit when it first cam...
Spider-Man: Friend or Foe
Great for kids and Spiderman fans. Otherwise, there are better beat-em-up games out there.
The Good: 2 player coop. Some moves and combos are pretty fun. Good dialogue during cutscenes. The Bad: Controls aren't responsive enough. Players move slowly. The Review: These beat-em-up game...
Tomb Raider: Legend
Bad controls and boring gameplay ruined it for me.
The Good: Clean presentation with good graphics and voice acting. The Bad: Clunky controls. Slow gameplay. Hints to figure out puzzles are too hidden. The Review: I got this game for me and my...
Guild Wars Factions
Not as good as the first, but still good.
The Good: Same great presentation and gameplay as the first. Forces you into light PvP gameplay in some parts. 2 new classes are great and well-balanced. The Bad: Story is a bit lackluster. Story ...
Probably the best 3D handheld platformer ever. Good quality and gameplay variety keep this one going strong.
The Good: Good gameplay variety. Funny dialogue and cutscenes. Difficulty feels just right. Pretty lengthy for a platformer. The Bad: Cartoonish presentation and light gameplay won't appeal to eve...
Not my cup of tea, nor did it cater to me as a first timer to the series.
The Good: Good voice acting, graphics, dialogue, and graphics. The Bad: Repetitive and shallow gameplay/shooting elements. Interface for upgrading weapons is a bit complex, and overall customizat...
As much of a GTA-style Transformers game on the DS as you can get. Clearly though, it doesn't really belong on the DS.
The Good: Lots of voicework. Nice 3D graphics and destructible environments. Decent story and missions. Interesting online options. The Bad: Kind of short. Gameplay not very deep. Though environme...
Shadow of the Colossus
Maybe it's just me, but I don't see what the fuss is about for this game.
The Good: Cinematic style graphics that are stunning sometimes. The Bad: Terrible controls for everything. Terrible camera. No real story. Boring and repetitive gameplay. The Review: Well, may...
Geuryeora, Touch! Naega Mandeuneun Sesang
One of my kids' favorite games ever.
The Good: drawing mechanic works well. crisp 2D graphics. easy for kids. The Bad: too easy for adults. generic and outdated platforming. The Review: I'm suprised it took this long for them to ...
Petz: Catz 2
As good as Nintendogs for cat lovers.
The Good: good graphics. adorable animations. good point system for unlockables. The Bad: frustrating camera. The Review: This game is basically the cats version of Nintendogs. I haven't playe...
God of War: Chains of Olympus
As described. Amazing, but I finished in less than 5 hours as a casual gamer.
The Good: Amazing graphics and sound. Great camera and controls. Same satisfying action as the console games. The Bad: Story mode lasts about 5 hours. Review: Welp, I heard this game was only ...
Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron (Bundle)
Good diversity and online play make this a classic.
The Good: Lots of maps, modes, and missions. Star Wars nostalgia throughout. The Bad: Controls take awhile to get used to. Main single player campaign is very short. Review: This is my 3rd SWB...
Dance Dance Revolution Extreme
A solid DDR with lots of songs.
The Good: Lots of songs. Most songs are great. Lots of trancy techno pop songs. The Bad: Nothing revolutionary or new here. Review: Well, there is nothing new for me here since I started out p...
Final Fantasy XII
(2nd review) Not your typical Final Fantasyor RPG. Immersive and unmatched presentation, but moves along very slow.
The Good: Beautiful graphics and environments. Fresh new combat system. The Bad: Licensing system and navigation is overwhelming at first. Story makes little sense the first 20 hours. Level grindin...
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
A long, incredible game that's nearly perfect.
The Good: The best voice acting in any video game ever made. One of the best uses of licensed music in any video game ever made. Interesting and funny storyline. One of the most diverse video games ev...
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
An impressive game for the GBA, but as the GS review says, clearly geared towards K H fans.
The Good: Interesting card battles. Fluid animation and bright colored graphics. Good dialogue and fills in gaps in KH storyline. Outstanding music. The Bad: Gameplay can get repetitive. Shuffling...
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (Modem Pack)
The best 2-D fighter I've ever played.
Well, its up there with super smash bro. melee..... The best thing about this 2-D fighting game (though it has 3-D backgrounds, which make the graphics look even better), is the shear amount of charac...
MLB 07: The Show
Exact same game as last year, bugs and all. New career mode is okay.
The good: A new career mode attempt. Good batting and overall controls. The bad: Same little bugs never fixed. Commentary is nearly untouched and still bad. Graphics looking outdated. Review: ...
Guitar Hero II
Fun, but not as fun as DDR. It also seems more hardcore rock music fans would enjoy more.
The Good: Good graphics, fun gameplay, lots of unlockables. The Bad: Notes seem to be off-beat on some songs. Review: Here I am, reviewing an old game as usual, lol. Because I refuse to pay fu...
Not as good as Animal Crossing.
The Good: Bright, sharp visuals with large characters. Pretty big landscape. Being able to change your hair, face, clothes on the go. The Bad: Moving around seems slow. Many times, it's difficult...
Zelda no Densetsu: Mugen no Sunadokei
While the story isn't as dramatic as previous Zelda's, this one is still THE flagship DS game.
The Good: Beautful graphics for the DS. Puzzles and gameplay overall is fun to play. Touch screen controls really work well. Sailing and treasure hunting is actually fun now. Dialogue is the most humo...
Dance Dance Revolution: Disney Channel Edition (Bundle)
Since most of the steps are off-sync, even Disney channel fans will have a hard time liking this one.
The Good: Magic mode and some new ideas for the DDR series. Getting to play as Disney characters and their songs. 29.99 price tag. The Bad: Most songs are off-sync to the steps. Plain looking cell...
Madden NFL 08
A few new animations and slight gameplay changes make this nearly identical to last year's game.
The Good: A few new player animations. Online play is lag-free. Superstar icons add a slight bit of new strategy. The Bad: Offline play can get laggy sometimes. Review: I'm not going to make this a lo...
Mario Party DS
If this game had Wi-Fi, it would have been one of the best DS games ever. As it stands, it's still pretty good though.
The Good: Same great Mario Party gameplay you love. Minigames are fun. Nice extras. Nice graphics and audio. Up to 4 players can compete in the whole game with only 1 cartridge. The Bad: No online...
High School Musical: Sing It!
Even High School Musical fans will have a hard time liking this one.
The Good: Singing mechanics are pretty accurate. Includes every song from HSM 1 and 2. Lets you pause during the songs (unlike DDR). The Bad: Singing mechanics can throw you off if you don' t know...
SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs: Combined Assault
This game didn't thrill me for some reason.
I used to have the first SOCOM for the PSP, and frankly, I enjoyed that one much better, even though that one had a lock-on targeting system. My biggest complaint about this game is the graphics. I'm ...
Interactive Storybook DS: Series 1
First...Ever... Review of this game. And it's great for the age group, 3-6, and older kids too.
Woot, I'm the first and only to ever and probably ever will, review this game. :-) I came across it searching the DS games rated "family" or "early childhood" or something, either here or on Games...
Finally, this is the racer I've been looking for.
The Good: Lots of gameplay variety to keep things interesting. Great graphics. Lots of tracks and missions to keep you busy. Good multiplayer and options. Good physics and sense of speed. Superb crash...

The Simpsons: Hit & Run
Mission-based driving that's really fun.

The best baseball experience on the PSP.

Need for Speed Underground
This game only has one track. What kinda mess is that?
Well, I went shopping for an "arcade racer" I could play single and multi-player with on my GC, and I was really dissapointed in this one. Mainly because this game only has ONE TRACK! I gues...
Monster Hunter Portable 2nd
Warning: Only for the hardcore, approach with caution.
The Good: Some of the best graphics ever on the PSP. Loads of content. Interesting enemy AI. Decent tutorial. The Bad: Terrible crafting system. Bad camera. Quirky controls. Unbalanced weapons. No sto...
Tak: The Great Juju Challenge
A good 3D platformer. Usually light on combat with decent puzzle-solving. Basically, a poor mans SM64DS.
The Good: Fantastic 3D visuals for the DS. Puzzles are not too easy nor too hard. Most of the mini-games are pretty good. Cheap price tag. The Bad: Combat is too easy. No speech. Not nearly as long an...
