    Easily one of the best handheld games to hit us in a long while--it is fresh and addictive, easy to play, and hard to master.

    Near flawless package. Gameplay, visuals, sound, presentation and overall value and fun are off the charts.

    Take into account the deep customization, barrage of unlockables and game modes, online components, and the polish and balance of it all, and Brawl is quite a force to be reckoned with, expanding those hours of value into months, if not years of good times.

    If you have only played the GameCube version, then you’ll be delighted to hear that the Wii edition has all the extras that were only previously available in the PlayStation2 release. These extras, combined with the excellent graphics of the GameCube version and the superior Wii control scheme, makes the latest incarnation of the Resident Evil series definitely worth the purchase.

    A very amazing piece of art merged with very unique, engrossing gameplay. Truly a unique experience that almost any gamer should give at least one go at. Other than very minor issues, this is easily one of the most well designed and enjoyable games ever made.

    Chrono Trigger is one of the most charming, endearing, and most fun role playing games I have ever had the pleasure of playing.

    Corruption provides great first-person controls and really takes advantage of the Wii's unique controller setup.

    It's just nearly-perfected Zelda gameplay. If you're looking for something more than just a new way to play Zelda, as in, something different in terms of how Zelda plays, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

    Its unique if sometimes Japanese-infused presentation sports a snappy visual design and an excellent musical score, but the real hook is the superb puzzle design.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Excellent gameplay, challenge and visuals. Voice work and story are the only low marks.

    The story is phenomenal, the music is some of the best, and it leaves Phoenix Wright and friends off on a spectacular note.

    A wonderfully refreshing chunk of stylized retro goodness stuffed into a forty dollar box.

    Dementium is definitely easy to interact with, and it flows quite nicely.

    Contra 4's main Arcade mode is a remixed classic and a treat in its own right, but what really makes Contra 4 stand out is how it pays tribute to its fans by using the slick gameplay of the main game to craft an excellent Challenge Mode and consequently reward players with two classic NES titles and a bunch of nostalgic extra features to boot.

    Veterans, this game is everything you could hope for an more. While Battle was a bust, what is still tried and true to the series is still amazing.

    Few DS titles on the shelves right now can compare to the addictive (and often nostalgic) delights found in BLT2. The playability stands as an example of how DS touch games should be made.

    • 90 Critic Score
    The characters are engaging, fun, quirky, messed up, and easy to either fall in love with or hate. Santa Destroy itself is full of so many nooks and crannies that any player anal about that kind of thing will easily be able to spend several hours searching for hidden back alleys for dumpsters and lovikov balls. The game is fun, easy to grasp, has a lot of replay value (trust me), and tells an engaging story.

    With hilariously well-written dialog, brilliant court cases, DS-specific features, pulse-pounding drama, catchy and moody music, and four cases, you will not want to miss this game.

    Clover and Ready at Dawn have given the Wii a beautiful and epic journey. One of the best games on the system that any gamer with a Wii needs to own. Okami is a masterpiece that is not likely to be duplicated and deserves to be in everyone's gaming library.

    No game is perfect, but that said, this is as close as a non-Nintendo game has come in a long while. It's most definitely worth the purchase, as it'll keep you entertained for many, many hours.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Overall this is a very enjoyable game. It is fun on its own as an arachnid and arthropod themed adventure game but is boosted with an extra story featuring recognizable and excellent voice acting.

    If you love action games, you can't do much better than Ninja Gaiden on Nintendo’s portable system.

    If a player can look past the occasionally spotty visuals, the unusually long load times, and a complicated narrative, they can find an excellent RPG experience for the Wii.

    "Big Bang Mini" really came out of nowhere and totally surprised me. What appears to be a innovative take on the vertical shooter genre then explodes into a content-rich title that is constantly changing and expanding.

    Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia serves up slick controls, action, and challenge while infusing some freshness into the formula and blending it with some of the best elements of the past two Castlevanias.
    • 69 Metascore

    This is the kind of game that makes Wiiware a worthwhile feature, and shows that good hardcore games can be made for the system in any size.

    Rune Factory 2 is packed with depth and content and offers a tremendous value for its package.

    A welcome return of a quality Sonic title that brings back memories of first playing Sonic 1 on the Sega Mega Drive. With great graphics, great gameplay and a developed storyline that’s not overly serious, Sonic’s a great addition to all gamers. The only downside is the somewhat odd battle system.

    Mad World is bloody, vulgar, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

    Hating football and playing football games isn’t the best thing to do. After being forced to play this genre of games for ten years, FIFA 09 All-Play is easily the best sports game I’ve ever played. With a strong single player mode for serious gamers and a light-hearted and purely fun multiplayer casual side, it makes it an all rounder and a great game to play.
