    I can dig Assassin's Creed as a platformer, but glitches and cheap repeats make it a poor handheld port.

    Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles

    I can dig Assassin's Creed as a platformer, but glitches and cheap repeats make it a poor handheld port.

    Going right into this I feel the need to preface that I absolutely loved the home console version of this game (played on 360 and PS3 and gotten all the achievements in 360). Additionally, I play the DS for a portable f... Read Full Review

    Too Human

    Dennis Dyack and Silicon Knights' 10 year project emerges and drags us through a buggy, but fun ride.

    Too Human was originally a Playstation game (yes, the original system) that premiered with an incredible trailer in the 1998 E3. As time went on, it seemed that Dennis Dyack (head of Silicon Knights) and his team just c... Read Full Review

    If you paid for this, you got ripped off if only because it's easily free.  Good for Fable II fans.

    Fable II Pub Games

    If you paid for this, you got ripped off if only because it's easily free. Good for Fable II fans.

    The fact that you can port gold from this game to the real game and that you can unlock extra items made it very clear that these games were going to be simple, tough, and require lots of time. I think the reason this g... Read Full Review

    Battlefield: Bad Company

    How I spent my summer vacation

    Not much happened this summer, just like every summer. E3 came and went and got me all pumped up for games I won't touch for months (or even nearly a year), I got caught up on many of the games I missed out on, and even... Read Full Review

    New Super Mario Bros.

    Super Mario Bros 3.5 has arrived. It's not quite its predecessor, but it's still great!

    If you weren't told otherwise (and assuming the graphics were 8- or 16-bit) you may assume that New Super Mario Bros was a sequel to Super Mario Bros 3 or Super Mario World (personally I think it's more like SMB 3). Tha... Read Full Review

    LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

    Indy is no clone of Lego Star Wars, but then again, does it also falter in places where Star Wars succeeded?

    LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures

    Indy is no clone of Lego Star Wars, but then again, does it also falter in places where Star Wars succeeded?

    I loved Lego Star Wars, like LOVED Lego Star Wars, so naturally as a fan of all things Lucas or LucasFilm and a Lego fan I was stoked about Lego Indiana Jones. Fortunately my patience was not wasted on a crappy clone, b... Read Full Review

    Kojima impresses yet again, but this time outdoes himself with excellent gameplay and story. But, non-MGS fans beware..

    There are a couple of games over the course of time that you either subscribed to, or you didn't. For Metal Gear Solid, this seems to be a limited group more and more every day. When most Playstation original players w... Read Full Review

    MOOOO!  Activision milks the guitar hero cash cow and ends up hurting Aerosmith in the process.

    Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (Bundle)

    MOOOO! Activision milks the guitar hero cash cow and ends up hurting Aerosmith in the process.

    I was so psyched about this game, especially when I heard that it would mostly be older guitar heavy 70s Aerosmith. Then I started hearing the tweaks like that even though it had the GH3 engine it couldn't play DLC. I'... Read Full Review

    Much better than expected, but unfortunately certain parts use game dynamics to create false difficulty.

    Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy

    Much better than expected, but unfortunately certain parts use game dynamics to create false difficulty.

    This game was announced early on and no one was quite sure what it would be about or quite how it would play. Then, when it was revealed that it will revolve around the first movie with a unique combat system, I got pre... Read Full Review

    Boom Blox

    A unique puzzler that requires multiplayer to truly appreciate.

    This review is going to be quite small because there really isn't much to Boom Blox. While this is not good news for most games on the Wii, Boom Blox is more captivating with these simplicities. Additionally it's...dar... Read Full Review

    Comic fan service, great RPG-infused brawler, and an overall good time.  A little too short unless you like repetition.

    Marvel: Ultimate Alliance

    Comic fan service, great RPG-infused brawler, and an overall good time. A little too short unless you like repetition.

    I remember when this game was released and the overall hype was that it was "pretty good" and that comic fans loved it. I purchased the game immediately, but sadly, since life caught up with me, I haven't been able to b... Read Full Review

    Nothing new here, just a typical hack 'n slash that will make you hate (no, really) flying around on a dragon!

    I was torn with this game. No one liked it and everyone said it was kind of difficult from an annoying "babysit the partner AI perspective". I liked the movie and I must admit that I'm trying to bust out some achieveme... Read Full Review

    Arguably biased, but I love this game!  Basically you interact, minimally, with a "B" horror film.

    Night Trap

    Arguably biased, but I love this game! Basically you interact, minimally, with a "B" horror film.

    There are several reasons I feel the way I do about "Night Trap". Some of the strongest influences have to do with the fact that I grew up watching USA "Up All Night" (remember? with Rhonda?) and I've seen so many horr... Read Full Review

    Heavenly Sword

    Solid cinematic hack-n-slash with gorgeous graphics even though the adventure is short and sweet.

    I do understand that Ninja Theory designed this game as a (pseudo) clone of God of War (hence the common "Goddess of War" nickname), but I'm not sure this was the true intent in pre-production. Clearly the game is meant... Read Full Review

    Tweaks to what lacked in the first.  All in all just more of what you already loved.

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2

    Tweaks to what lacked in the first. All in all just more of what you already loved.

    If you are a fan of Rainbow Six: Vegas, especially to the point that you're either elite or you beat the single player campaign on realistic, then you'll probably get this game on general principle. You'll be happy you ... Read Full Review

    Solid co-op action that actually makes you work together. Weak single player and online. Worth a rental with a friend.

    I see what "Army of Two" was doing when they came up with the concept. It was reaching right into the hearts of us hardcore co-op players. You know, the ones who beat Halo 3 on legendary with two other dead partners, j... Read Full Review
