    So the real fun of the game is when you’re playing as Mario and you tap A to switch dimensions. Dead ends suddenly become open roads as you swap between a flat wall and a paper thin backdrop. This really shows off the great 2D art and kills the 3D presentation. [JPN Import]

    It's a great no-brainer game that's nice to sit and play while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and some cookies. It's definitely not a game for those that don't already enjoy the odd quirkiness of the newer Nintendo games that have been coming out. [JPN Import]

    A game that features great innovative gameplay, still retaining that great Kirby feel to it.

    No other game comes close to Nintendogs in its field. Just don’t go in expecting the be all and end all that the mass media attention would have you to believe and you should enjoy this game for what it is.

    It’s literally an Action-RPG with Harvest Moon elements. Not to mention the atmosphere of the game is very well created with the feeling that you actually are in a world of dinosaurs and there is a chance you will die.

    Fans of the Harvest Moon series will enjoy this game a lot, not only because it's the first for the DS, but because it integrates the best parts of a few of the older games all into one. [JPN Import]

    Tony Hawk 8 is an incredible upgrade for the series but at the same time it lacks in some areas. Create-A-Park is gone, Create-A-Skate has been downplayed a lot, some things are a bit too easy, and finally the whole world feels a bit stale.

    Minor gripes aside, this is a great game with a lot of innovation and fun to be had. [JPN Import]

    A beautiful game to look at with some fun replayable mini games. Don’t expect an epic story, though – just lots and lots of Chocobos! [JPN Import]

    A really well presented game with entertaining scenarios despite being a port from over a decade ago. RPG players and anyone else who has to yet to play these classics should have a fun time watching the story being played out. However, if you're looking for an RPG with a thorough challenge and interesting battle system, you should probably look else where. [JPN Import]

    The cel-shaded graphics are crisp and fit this title perfectly. [JPN Import]

    NIS once again delivers a masterpiece. Requiring a lot of strategy because of the remove stat, it is much harder than Disgaea and La Pucelle.

    I also stress that people looking to buy this title do so as soon as possible because it will soon be almost impossible to find since Atlus has stopped its production of this great title.

    A few more stages could have been nice, but after speaking with some of the developers I learned that Majesco didn’t give a long enough deadline.

    This game is quite an enjoyable experience that lasts through a complete 100 levels. That's right a hundred puzzle-packed levels, with the last 20 being the hardest and will make your eyes bleed from the sheer thoughts. [JPN Import]

    A Japanese console RPG fans wet dream. It manages to incorporate incredibly creative and new ideas into an old formula with amazingly fun results.

    A game that's solid in its foundation, provides a standard rpg tale, and last quite a good length. Yet at the same time it lacks anything to make it distinct, exciting, and something that players should care about. While it is no doubt a technical masterpiece, in the current rpg state of the PS2, where quality rpgs exist in mass, it's tough to recommend Rogue Galaxy. [JPN Import]

    May not offer you the same multi-branching story mode and quick effective stylus controls that Star Fox Command has but, the story is engaging and the satisfaction you get when you score that triple ‘S’ rank will keep you playing. [JPN Import]

    Despite its flaws, Gurumin is the best action/platformer on the PSP (though many will still prefer "Daxter" most likely). It’s colorful, has a good battle engine, and nice Indiana Jones type levels for players to make their way through. [JPN Import]

    Fans of the past Battle Network series may enjoy the little heightened difficulty. [JPN Import]

    With the fairly large number of puzzles that come with Picross DS, the game will keep you occupied for quite some time. But with the addition of Wi-Fi features, you could find yourself picking up the game very often even after completing all puzzles.

    It's a great game, and this time it's portable. The graphical change makes it fresh for people who played the original version and other changes makes it more similar to the newer "Tales of..." games as well, so everyone who likes RPGs should like this.

    After MMBN4 and MMBN5 which used different formulas than the older ones, MMBN6 goes back to a more traditional MMBN game system. The only big "gimmick" in this game is the evil spirit sections, and they are taken care of fast.

    A rewarding experience that rewards the player for how well they play in a stage, and with an intruguing storyline.

    The conversion from console to handheld was pretty nice, it still retains the fun VJ feel as well as the stylish gameplay. And the touch screen puzzles are very nice.

    I would have liked it if there were customizable controls, but it isn't a big deal. For a real innovative pinball experience I would have hoped Nintendo had included a gyroscopic feedback add-on, so I could actually shake the DS to tilt the table. But it's apparent that my dreams may never come true.

    There are now a whopping 25 sliders which adjust your mobsters face and body. Looking at all these new features I really whish I would have waited for this one before diving into this epic adventure.

    The only downside to this game as a whole is the fact that the main focus is the spell-casting system and the ability to control and upgrade groups of monsters; the further into the game you get, the more the plot takes a backseat to the spell gameplay and strategic battles. [JPN Import]

    Don’t get me wrong, the graphics aren’t next-gen quality but they sure are eons better than the crap you see in the PS2 version.

    A unique, inventive, and fun game that youll most likely want to play and own due to its huge amount of replayability from random slash-a-thons to side quests and item discovery; you can spend a whole lot of time in this game. Then again if the save system and RPG leveling system turn you off you might be better off renting it first.
