    There is a good amount of material to be seen within this cartridge. Some of it is above average (art style, technical achievement, story), and others are disappointing (sound, mechanics, block-on-grid puzzles). The one truly abysmal flaw is the lack of an internal battery to save the game, which is unacceptable for today's standards, even more so in a portable system.

    You get what you pay for, so don’t expect anything groundbreaking here. However, I feel confident that most gamers can get at least some level of enjoyment out of this game, even if it’s just a few laughs.

    It’s a must play for any Civil War-loving gamers out there, and a decent rental for anyone curious to experience a war game from a war other than World War II for a change.

    The gameplay does have its problems, but if you respect the controls and give it time, you will no doubt find something to enjoy with the game.

    The straightforward gameplay makes it an easy game to pick up and play, and the fact that you can respawn with full health right where you die makes it easy to overlook the camera flaws, even if they do cause you to die repeatedly.

    When it comes down to it, X-Men: The Official Game is exactly what you'd expect out of a game based on a movie... extra story for fans, flashy graphics and good voice acting, but shallow gameplay and a short playthrough time.

    Easily one of the biggest problems with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest is the fact that the game is way too short. The game can easily be completed in less than six hours of playtime, and there really is no reason for a replay, either-- no unlockables or anything.

    The trouble is doing any sort of action requires using 3 or 4 menus, which is okay in itself, but in InuYasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask, each menu takes twice as long as it needs to, dragging the battles horridly. Combined with a fairly high encounter rate, it seems to take forever to accomplish anything.

    One of the nicest things about the game is the fact that players will be able to play co-op with another individual.

    In reality, Dragon Blade is a fairly difficult game... but for all the wrong reasons. It's not a game that requires a lot of skill or strategy, and instead is difficult only because of the crappy controls and high level of patience you'll need in order to finish the game.

    If you like games like Harvest Moon, or you enjoyed the fishing portion in the Dark Cloud series, then this is a fun little game just for you. While it’s far from perfect, it’s a delightful adventure that both casual and hard-core gamers can enjoy. Just don’t expect anything epic.

    On the positive side, the graphics, although not the sharpest, do their job, and there is a good variety of side quests and characters to interact with. On the negative, value is low, the monsters look silly, dialogs are uninteresting, plot is nothing out of the ordinary, and sound is abysmal.

    Despite a host of major flaws, Two Worlds gets better as you play it, and honestly, becomes strangely addictive and may suck hours away from your life. Sure, it’s far from perfect, but if you can overlook some of the problems, it’s actually a lot of fun!

    If you’re dying to play a game like this, then EA’s Lord of the Rings games are very similar and far superior. And if you’re a die hard Eragon fan, then go with the GBA version instead and you’ll be a lot happier.

    The game features some really good concepts, but much of these could be easily overlooked because of the load times and slow-down.

    It is a shame that a game based on such a successful franchise seems to have been rushed to be released, making it a short, (at times) disappointing, flawed experience, and giving the impression that it is just filler for Pokemon fans, being the 1st Pokemon game to come out on the Nintendo DS.

    The ability to choose your own destiny in Shadow the Hedgehog is cool, but much of that is overshadowed by the problems with the camera, controls, targeting, and so on.

    But watching Dirk perform action after action while wishing that you were doing SOMETHING gets old pretty quick. Allowing the player to guide Dirk’s action without directly controlling is just fine, but Dragon’s Lair III spends too much time making you wait between actions.
