    Overall, Devil Survivor hits all the marks of a great Shin Megami Tensei title: the story has a mature tone with plenty of twists and multiple endings, the setting and characters defy the genreā€™s norms, and the gameplay mechanics offer some unique twists to well established formulas while demanding the player to think strategically.

    If there were to be an official wish list for a Metallica music game, Guitar Hero: Metallica would have crossed most of those wishes off of the list.

    By eliminating the time limit, adding more and larger areas, and littering the world with nearly 5 times the original's hidden treasure, Nintendo was able to not only lengthen the main scenario's play time (now roughly 20 hours), but also make the player feel more comfortable with exploring the Pikmin universe without the time limit constantly looming over their heads.

    It has all those essential elements that good games need, and all those elements are slightly less than perfect.

    Each level roughly sticks to the staple patformer diet of grass, ice , sand ,etc. But the foreground settings are brilliantly imaginative - a bizzare, alien theme park , an underground shrine , a military base - and really improve the more sedate sections of the game,i.e jumping , talking,etc. It certainly makes a refreshing change from Banjo's desert/ice/grass worlds.

    An excruciating experience that will bear some of the most rewarding gameplay experiences ever crafted... Quest has once again pulled off another masterpiece in the flawless Ogre Battle Saga.

    The truth is, Big Brain Academy offers little depth, and almost no immersion, because the gameplay is so start-and-stop. But Big Brain Academy succeeds because of its simplicity and accessibility.

    If you've ever played a Mega Man game before, and enjoyed your experience, there's nothing to not like about this game. It is a good, solid adventure with some intense action and enough of a challenge to keep you busy for a while.

    Swordcraft Story takes away all the daunting tedium and deftly delivers a fun, satisfying adventure enjoyable by both experienced and new players alike.

    A fine continuation of what's shaping up to be quite an epic RPG series.

    The best part about it is that there's something new going on every day, whether it's a new neighbor moving in, a nasty snowstorm on the horizon, or a holiday party at City Hall.

    The gameplay manages to successfully merge the two Castlevania play styles, while retaining a firm hold on excellent design and presentation.

    The replay value on Starfox64 is pretty much endless, unless you consider the route difficulties and level tasks terrible game design.

    Even if you have never even played SMW, it's still fun to go out and play one of the games that truly defined the Mario franchise. This is a great game.

    The game sheds the stereotypes surrounding mindless on-rails shooters, instead delivering a veritable interactive movie that packs more suspense, drama, and compelling characters in its five hours than other Wii games do in thirty.

    This cartridge was clearly made by people who love these sorts of games... An excellent choice for people seeking a little quality "pick up and play" action.

    Valid proof that "coming up short" can still translate into "a hell of a lot of fun."

    While it's essentially "Marble Madness" with better graphics and a few twists in the game design, it feels much more than that.

    Maybe the game relies on the magic system a little too much, but it's that system that keeps Lost Magic from ever being lost.

    With bolstered controls and a development system as deep as most RPGs, Tiger Woods is still the game beat when it comes to golf.

    Having played this game for a relatively long time, I have to warn that even though you will get your money's worth and many, many hours of play, it does end up getting very tedious after a couple of weeks.

    Hotel Dusk: Room 215 is not just a fun play, it's a good read. It's a classic PC-styled adventure with an emphasis on story and realized in a great way on DS hardware.

    Perhaps the strongest and most-heard criticism that can be leveled at Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is that it's more of the same, and indeed, it is. Yet there's a slightly grander sense of scale in everything-- the settings, story, puzzles, minigames, graphics and soundtrack all feel amped up just a notch.

    It offers a different experience than "Perfect Dark" and "TWINE" and Turok 3 is worth a look.

    It’s an excellent mission to run through over the Christmas holidays and the production quality of EA's Medal of Honor series blows a lot of games on the Cube right out of the water.

    This game is about two steps away from being called "Bam Margera Pro Skater," seeing as he is the main pro skater you see in the game.

    Sports fans will enjoy the level of off the field depth and control scheme depth here.

    While its flashy new successor doesn’t innovate quite like the original did, it does in fact make leaps and bounds above its predecessor through improved gameplay mechanics, fantastic new features, and a new coat of polish in the audio and visual departments.

    The writing and extreme sense of humor will definitely get fans turning their heads and exploring every inch of every level. There's a good 15-20 hours available in this title and any Simpsons fan should cherish every minute.

    While a few faults may hold back the score from being perfect, LostWinds is a refreshing and almost nostalgic experience that will leave a player excited, but still asking for more.
