    If you already like Duel Masters, have lots of the cards, and like its game mechanics, go ahead and get the GBA version. It sports a whole lot of what you already like. But if you are like me and are getting quite burned out on the whole card battling scene, this game most definitely will not change your mind about it.

    The main control scheme works really well and makes the game worth a rental for anyone who just wants to get their hands on a Wii shooter. However, some of the simpler tasks are somehow completely broken, and the game as a whole is pretty uninspiring.

    A satisfying platform brawler that should easily please younger gamers while providing enough action and humor to keep older gamers interested.

    For what it's worth though, this is a handy little tool with more information than you could possibly ask, and the fact that it's free just sweetens the deal. If you don't yet have it and you're a Pokémon fan, get it. Now.

    At the end of the day, Adventure Bar Story can be seen as filler before the next big thing hits on the Nintendo 3DS and I am totally okay with that.

    It's nice to revisit some of those wonderful Twilight Princess environments, but don't expect the disc to live in your Wii for very long.

    If there was one thing about this game that would make you stay away from it, it would have to be the title’s replay value. That is to say, there really isn’t any.

    Although Amoebattle fills a bit of a gap in the DS library by being one of the few competent real-time strategy games on the system, and although it's certainly a strong title in comparison to many other DSiWare games, it falls just short of being a title of easy recommendation.

    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.

    Though Career Mode is tedious and makes unlocking new elements a chore, the customization options and freedom you have when building coasters are worth the fuss. Coaster Creator 3D is a fun tool for any coaster fan or theme park enthusiast.

    In the end, the only really bad thing I can say about Pyramids 2 is that it’s bland.

    On the whole, Doodle Hex is a fundamentally solid game that sadly fails to capitalise on its strengths in a number of crucial ways.

    Hello Flowerz is a very laid-back game. It's a game you will want to pick up for a few minutes and then put it away until tomorrow.

    The best thing I can compare the missions to is a crap sandwich on two really great slices of rye. The first and last missions are awesome and show off some sweet cinematics as well as fantastic gameplay.

    If you are interested in giving Picross a try for the first time, you will be better off purchasing the Game Boy version on the 3DS Virtual Console.

    However, the constant whining from Emil, a party that never feels like it has a foundation, and poor pacing and flow make waiting for the good stuff an exercise in patience, where it should be an exercise in fun.

    It’s simply too easy and skews to an incredibly young audience. I can only recommend it to anyone who has never been able to beat a game and would like to know how it feels.

    What Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate lacks in its plot, it more than makes up for with its gameplay. It may not be on par with its console brethren, but it’s still an enjoyable experience, whether or not you’ve played previous games in the series.

    Overall, Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is a solidly produced title, but given its close resemblance to its predecessor and the lack of more substantial or dynamic gameplay and narrative elements, its appeal will be limited mostly to those Pokémon enthusiasts eager to see the creatures from Diamond and Pearl represented elsewhere.

    The game feels like more Star Wars than pinball, and at its core it’s just a dressed up pinball game with some nice extras. If you’re a pinball lover and a fan of the Star Wars franchise, you’ll be in heaven with this game. If you’re not, then it might not be for you.

    Lost In Shadow overstays its welcome, which is disappointing. If the game had been less ambitious in scale and more ambitious in content, it would perhaps be one of the best games in recent memory. Instead, it falls just short of something truly great.

    An unremarkable game that plays like a standard soccer title with Disney characters thrown on the rosters -- and that's about it.

    A great shoot ‘em up game that allows you to destroy almost everything in your environment and lets you take your frustrations out on hordes of other 101s. Guns, plasma rifles, tanks, helicopters: you name it, you use it.

    Treasure World is an interesting experiment that is successful in what it sets out to accomplish. However, for most players the content is too thin to be enjoyable.

    A great concept that is very entertaining on the surface falls on its face extremely quickly due to lack of content.

    The thing that really shakes me about Table Tennis, though, is that Rockstar did virtually nothing to spice up the sport. Like I said before, there are no actual players or Career-type mode. There are no power-ups, and no stat improvements. The closest thing to "technique" you’ll find is in putting spin on the ball and using your focus meter, which actually doesn’t help very much. In all, Table Tennis is a game that just screams "lack of effort."

    If you are a shoot-em-up fan, you won’t leave this game disappointed.

    At the end of the day, Battle for New York isn’t worth the cash if you’ve already played one of the other DS games, and since it looks like they’ll be using the same engine in the future, you might as well hold out if you haven’t experienced any of the previous titles. Sorry, Spidey.

    While NHL Hitz 2003 would be a great mini game in a console game, maybe something one would see in a Midway adaptation of "Animal Crossing," it’s not a deep or fun enough game worthy of a $40 purchase.

    Graphics and sound are excellent, but the level design is uninspired and repetitive. Its control scheme is effective and easily mastered, but some of the moves are clumsy to execute and can lead to costly mistakes.
