    A conflicting mix of great puzzles and story with technical and emotional issues that hold it back.

    Papo & Yo

    A conflicting mix of great puzzles and story with technical and emotional issues that hold it back.

    One of the reasons some people will never see video games as a legitimate art form is because unlike other forms of media, games generally tend to shy away from disturbing or sensitive subject matter. Games like Call of ... Read Full Review

    Has a few curious design decisions, but is a great, quirky addition to your generative music game collection.

    Sound Shapes

    Has a few curious design decisions, but is a great, quirky addition to your generative music game collection.

    Sound Shapes is one of those fairly rare music games that, instead of having the player recreate music directly a la Guitar Hero, has the player doing something completely different while intertwining the audio throughou... Read Full Review

    Theatrhythm is as bizarre as its name implies, but pairs the best parts of Final Fantasy in a unique, addicting way.

    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy

    Theatrhythm is as bizarre as its name implies, but pairs the best parts of Final Fantasy in a unique, addicting way.

    Back in the before time, the long long ago that was summer of 2011, a little developer by the name of Square Enix announced a Final Fantasy game the likes of which no one had ever imagined, or even knew what to make of. ... Read Full Review

    Fez's framerate issues and abstract puzzles are extremely taxing, but incredibly rewarding and worth every minute.

    Fez

    Fez's framerate issues and abstract puzzles are extremely taxing, but incredibly rewarding and worth every minute.

    Among artsy indie games, there have been a lot of compelling puzzle-platformers in recent years. Games like Braid, Limbo and Closure may at times take themselves a bit too seriously, but they still rank among some of the... Read Full Review

    Lumines has a few curiously missing features, but enough great music & replayability to make it the best version yet

    Lumines: Electronic Symphony

    Lumines has a few curiously missing features, but enough great music & replayability to make it the best version yet

    Released way back in 2005, the original Lumines was one of the PSP's most celebrated launch titles. It took the tried-and-true Tetris formula and not only turned it on its side, but also injected it with a shot of electr... Read Full Review

    Just as stylistic and brutal as its predecessor, but with more frustration and not enough variety to change things up.

    Shank 2

    Just as stylistic and brutal as its predecessor, but with more frustration and not enough variety to change things up.

    The first Shank, released a little less than a year and a half ago, was a game that never really made much of a splash and likely flew under the radar for many gamers. This is a shame since the small team at Klei Ent... Read Full Review

    With great combat and dull city navigation, this game inspires a love/hate relationship

    No More Heroes

    With great combat and dull city navigation, this game inspires a love/hate relationship

    This game is fun, but its a difficult one to recommend to most people. Its a very back and forth type of game. As in, some parts are really cool, some parts are totally lame. Fighting with your laser sword is really f... Read Full Review

    The most bloody, engrossing, and downright fun 7 hrs you'll ever spend with a portable game system

    God of War: Chains of Olympus

    The most bloody, engrossing, and downright fun 7 hrs you'll ever spend with a portable game system

    Any fears I had about this game being pared down were unwarranted. Yes, the developers had to cut a few corners to fit the PSP, but its still God of War through and through. On the PSP. To a fan of the series, nothing... Read Full Review
