    Everything from the visual presentation to the core fighting system has stayed stagnant since the original GameCube game.

    A good game. It's not terrible, it's not great, and it doesn't in any way stand out. But it is good and fun to play, especially if you lower the difficulty a bit and bring a friend along.

    I was impressed with the sheer amount of variety in the game, but I can't help but wish it were utilized to a greater extent. Puddle looks and plays great, but the difficulty caused by its physics can hamper the experience.

    It allows fans of the series to play as their favourite shinobi warriors and do it in style. After extensive time with the 2-player mode, it becomes pretty obvious that the game is geared more towards button-mashers, but, if you're a big Naruto fan, this game is for you.

    There are several extremely frustrating issues with this incarnation of Animal Crossing. That said, what was written in the beginning of this review still holds true: the core game is still extremely charming.

    The game doesn't have a ton of depth or personality, aside from the amazing in-game cursor, so it won't take long for tower defense veterans to have their fill with what Glory Days: Tactical Defense has to offer.

    Although it's not very original, the content found here is compelling and fun, and the sports twist proves to be inspiration for several addictive mini-games.

    99Bullets is a neat distraction that fills an arcade itch. It won't last you forever, but thanks to the multiplayer and leaderboards, you will get more mileage out of it. The presentation is fine, but it never really changes, and the charm for its almost-retro look fades fast.

    I wish The Glory of Heracles had taken a few more risks.

    Band Hero is clearly aimed at a very specific audience, and for that audience it's a goldmine of content that they'll enjoy. For guys like me, who actually like rock music, I'll stick with something a little more hardcore.

    Thanks to the third-person view, the pace is slowed down considerably from its first-person brethren, which allows for a different gameplay perspective than the typical James Bond title. The upgrade system also really allows the player to make his Bond however he wants him to be.

    Need For Speed: Nitro is a perfectly average racing game on DS. You probably won't be blown away by it, but if you're looking for specific type of game to fill a gap in your DS library, you could pick a worse title than this.

    But if gin rummy and Texas Hold ‘Em constitute the bulk of your card-game playing, you should shy away from this one.

    While none of the games are quite as deep and compulsive as Wii Sports, they’re entertaining enough on their own to keep players waggling through the short single-player mode.

    It would be an all right buy for younger kids if they really, really like Barnyard or 3D adventure games that aren't too complicated.

    Madden NFL 06 DS is not a better game than "Madden NFL 2005 DS." Madden should improve with every year, but for the reasons above, it didn't this time.

    Unfortunately, the inherent design of the game just isn’t up to the standard of many other games in the action puzzle genre.

    Reel Fishing Paradise 3D is not a bad game by any means, but it is oddly paced in places. The catching is easy, while some of the missions can take a while to complete. Either way, there is no sense of you becoming a victor.

    A pretty likeable game. The presentation and gameplay are both simple and charming, and the budget price makes the shallow premise and minor faults completely forgivable.

    The improved graphics do make the game more pleasing to look at when you actually get a chance to drift your gaze away from the fret board. However, constant repetition of songs makes the set list obnoxious after awhile – even the songs that you do like.

    The game's great presentation and appropriate play mechanics make it a nice introduction to console gaming for young kids.

    It may be too soon after LEGO City Undercover to truly appreciate LEGO Batman 2. Playing them nearly back-to-back accentuates the similarity of the core gameplay, and makes the many-reprised assets, actions and animations stick out. But if you have skipped the superior Wii U exclusive earlier, or you are hungry for more of the same, or you're looking for a co-op experience or if you simply need your LEGO games to be Batman-flavored, then LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is a solid option.

    Although the game starts out slow, the reward is in making it to the higher levels. Once all the tricks and gimmicks are explained, the floors can expand and play with the format’s limitations. The pros really outweigh the cons here, and anyone looking for puzzles with a fun twist would have fun with this game.

    There is plenty to do in Nintendogs + Cats, but most gamers will get tired of the competitions pretty quickly.

    If you haven't played Assault Horizon Legacy and you have a New 3DS, this is the version to get. The additions aren’t major, but this version is the definitive one, as long as you own a New 3DS.

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars is a decent game. While it is fun to plan your moves in the various puzzles, the game starts out way too slow and doesn't break any new ground.

    Samurai Warriors: Chronicles does not bring a lot of big changes to the core gameplay, but the extra features and tweaks make it a worthwhile purchase for fans of the series, as well as someone who has never even played a Warriors game before.

    The mechanics, while a little obtuse, are interesting, and the three different game modes are varied and fun. It's just that there is a large focus on replaying the same content with minor differences.
