Unique? Yes<br /> Fun? Not exactly<br /> Worth playing? Maybe
The game loads and waZelda pushes the W button to go forwards. He is on a beach and there is a house nearby. As he enters, a flashlight is turned on. He starts trying out different buttons on the keyb...
Assassin's Creed: Director's Cut Edition
A great work of historical fiction.
My main statement regarding Assassin's Creed is that it is a good game, but it shows clear signs of being the first game in a franchise and being a bad PC port. The game is created by a "multicultu...
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
A brilliant strategy game
This is the first tactics RPG I've played and I think it is a genre I need to check out further. While I'm not a big fan of RPGs in general and I'm not very good at most strategy games, somehow this j...
A cleverly crafted racing/puzzle/rhythm game.
The racing/puzzle/rhythm genre has pretty few games, but Audiosurf sets some pretty awesome standards for it. The way Audiosurf works is that you import songs from your computer and then make a course...
Mario Kart 7
The evolution continues
As with most of nintendo's long-running franchises, the Mario Kart games doesn't move forwards in bounce and leaps, but Mario Kart 7 is an improvement nonetheless. While keeping the powerslides that t...
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
An amazing game if you can forgive it's flaws
If you asked me before Skyward Sword was announced what I wanted the most to see in a new Zelda game, my top two would be sword fighting that followed your hand's movement and a flying mount. Skyward ...
Art Academy: First Semester
A really nice drawing tool
Art academy is not much of a game. It is basically a chance to turn your DSi/3DS stylus into a pencil or painters brush and use it to draw a picture. The only part that resembles a game is the lessons...
Super Mario 3D Land
Starts off a bit slow, but heads strong.
You know, if Super Mario 3D Land had been over by the time I first beat Bowser, I would probably have given the game an 8.0. While a great game, I was a bit disappointed for a while since it was devel...
Crazily, insanely awesome fun
I first heard about Psychonauts five years ago when it was reviewed retrospectively by Ben "Yatzee" Croshaw who essentially called it the best game everyone ignored. After that I forgot all about it u...
Travel through the age to save the world from Lavos.
Chrono Trigger has made me realise something about myself. Until now I have thought that turn-based RPGs just aren't for me. I might like some of them, but I'll never really love them. Chrono Trigger ...
A great concept which I'd like to see them expand upon.
Runespell is based on a very simple idea. How about an RPG set in England in the 1040s where the combat system is a strange mix between solitaire and Poker? As it turns out it makes for a pretty good ...
3D Classics: Xevious
This one really is a waste
Xevious is the second game in the 3D cIassics series, which remakes NES games for the 3DS by adding 3D effects. The first game was excitebike, for which the 3D actually improved the graphics. This is ...
Saints Row 2
Just what a sandbox game should be like
A curious thing about videogames that are parodies is that they often end up being really great games on their own account. Saints Row 2 is a perfect example of such a game. It uses its GTA parody sta...
Iza! Kakeagare! Tower of God
Can you climb the tower of the gods?
One thing that has to be said about Tower of Deus, is that it is part of the Go series by Gamebridge, and the name of the series seems to fit the game perfectly. You see, not only is ToD a great game ...
GO Series: Pinball Attack!
This is the kind of game that annoys me the most.
When I'm deciding what game to play, like say on the bus, I have a tendency to remember only the good parts of pinball attack and then be painfully reminded about the bad parts the moment I pick it up...
Let's Golf 3D
Buy it for the golf, not the 3D
The basic concept of Let's Golf 3D is "like Mario golf, but with RPG elements". The gameplay will seem very familiar for Mario Golf fans, but with some new ideas Also camera angles and basic course de...
Dark Void Zero
It simply smells of too little effort.
I was a bit intrigued when I first discover DVZ's existence. While many old and successful franchises have gone retro and started delivering 2D games again, Dark Void Zero is the first I have seen tha...
A Fairy Tale
If you need something to pass the time with, this game gives you many hours for little money.
A Fairy Tale is a DSiWare game I came across while browsing the 3DS e shop and ended up buying mostly because of how cheap it was. 2 euros was a perfect price when I only had 2.5 euros left on my acco...
A pretty good game with pretty glaring flaws
Zenonia is an RPG released for DSiWare – among other platforms. The first thing you need to know is that it does not have a turn-based battle system. Instead you move around and attack up, down or sid...
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Does it have enough improvements to be worth buying again? I'll list the improvements, you can be the judge.
Just to get it out of the way, if you haven't played Ocarina of Time before, you should, and this is the best version of it. OoT is a timeless cIassic. The game has very memorable dungeons, both due t...
Rytmik is a very good tool for creating music
While on a game platform, Rytmik is not as much a game as it is a tool for creating music. However it does a very good job at that. Speaking as a guy who don't play any instruments and know very littl...
3D Classics: Excitebike
Does this version of the NES game stand the test of time with just a few improvements?
Excitebike 3D is the first 3D cIassic game for the 3DS, though who knows if it'll be few or many of those. Reggie mentioned it on Nintendo's E3 2011 press conference and gave players the "first taste ...
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
The thing about GTA Chinatown Wars is that it seems like a bad idea to begin with. Having a GTA game with the camera angle top down just can't compare to a regular camera angle. You won't have as spec...
Super Mario World: Super Mario Bros. 4
It is fun because it's poorly balanced.
The fascinating thing about Super Mario World is how what could have been considered its greatest weakness is also part of what makes it so damn fun. That thing is the item known as the cape. The cape...
Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
What a flash it is, but the lack of substance still shows
I'll admit that I haven't played many fighting games, but I do have some good memories from Soul Calibur II, and with so few 3DS games out around launch I decided to give SSF IV a try. Turns out it is...
Super Meat Boy
If you think Sonic the Hedgehog is the king of speed, you might have to reconsider.
NOTE: I played this game on a keyboard, It might be slightly different with a gamepad – for better or worse – but I wouldn't know. Super Meat Boy is an indie 2D platformer, and while you will certa...
A great escape and a great game
NOTE: I have not played the original Rayman 2, nor any of the other remakes, so I can't compare. Rayman has been kidnapped and his powers have been taken away, but all hope is not lost, because his...
And then there was cake
Portal is a physics puzzle game developed by Valve. You are inside a research facility (The Aperture Science Computer-aided Enrichment Center) where the voice of a computer introduces you to the task....
Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
Are you kidding me?
WARNING: The following review contains a big dose of gamer rage. Set ten years after the events of The Longest Journey, Dreamfall picks up with a new main character, a new playstyIe and a new journ...
The Longest Journey
Prepare for a thrilling adventure to take you around the world… Or rather both the worlds
TLJ starts off with a storyteller preparing to tell two people about a special young woman and her journey. Then of course we get to play as this young woman and control her journey. The girl is named...
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Some of the magic is gone, but the fun is still intact.
Donkey Kong Country Returns is the game to revive an old franchise which was very popular in the SNES era. The platformers by Rare were known for great variety and a lot of fun. Now it is Retro's resp...
King's Bounty: The Legend
If you want a cheap, and very long game that is generally good, then this isn't a bad choice.
Many games have aspects of building up your character and or army, but in King's Bounty it feels like finding treasures and strengthen yourself and your army is the whole point of the game. If you ...
An old cIassic that has aged a lot
Originally released in 1988 by SEGA for the Master System, this game is pretty old by now, and for its time it was really good and really long, but as a guy who played it for the first time in 2011, i...
Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode I
Sonic 4 is the game that is supposed to take Sonic back to when it was good.
Riding on the wave of platformers returning to their 2D roots, SEGA is releasing an episodic game following after Sonic the Hedgehog 1-3. The game is simple with running, jumping and dashing, plus a m...
Braid is a fine example of how story and gameplay can stand on each side of a brick wall.
... Or at least that's what I would have said if I hadn't played it to the end. The end does tell the story through gameplay and is actually pretty clever. Up until that point though, the story is tol...
Super Donkey Kong 2: Dixie & Diddy
Time to kick a$$ and play drums
In Donkey Kong Country 2 you don't play as Donkey Kong. Instead, DK has been kidnapped and it is time for Diddy Kong to step out of his shadow and be the new hero - even getting his own side-kick Dixi...
A good game, that to me just didn't have anything really appealing about it.
NOTE: This review is based solely on the singleplayer campaign and from someone who didn't own the N64 version and only barely got to try it out once. If you ever played the N64 version or saw the ...
Metroid Prime Pinball (w/Rumble Pak)
Nice idea for a game. It is not flawless, but still good.
Considering Samus Aran spends a lot of her time rolling into a ball in her regular games, why not make a spin-off game where she is in the morph ball almost all the time? Metroid Prime Pinball is clev...
Breath of Fire II: Shimei no Ko
It might not be very special for an RPG, but the game has its moments.
Now, when I purchased Breath of Fire II I felt a strange urge to play a nice, relaxing SNES RPG to kill some hours with, and for that purpose, the game turned out to be pretty much perfect. This is a ...
