    A wonderful spin off in the well-known franchise. It serves its namesake well, but in a completely new way not seen before.

    In a platform where there are hundreds of puzzle games, Neves manages to stand out with a spot on price and is just enjoyable and addictive.

    While The House of the Dead: Overkill is fun single player, multiplayer skyrockets the game.

    Fans of previous Punch-Out titles will have new obstacles to come over making it a familiar but new experience making it worthy of a purchase. Causal gamers or newcomers to the series will definitely want to rent first as the challenge may be too much in the fights later in the game.

    Mario Kart Wii features an impressive online experience, but falls a bit short in the offline content.

    An outstanding effort for an independent third party. It raises the bar for graphics, controls, and online gameplay for FPS on the Wii.

    Longtime fans of the series will appreciate how much loving care has been put into this product and, if you can find the friends, will provide countless hours of an addicting multiplayer adventure to take with you wherever you go.

    New Blood is the furthest thing from what you’d call “casual”, but it’s so far from it that it also will turn away many hardcore gamers because of its unrelenting difficulty.

    Shiren the Wanderer is the most brutal of the above games in every sense, with severe punishments for slight miscalculations.
    • 78 Metascore

    A stunning little game which deserves a US release and fast. The developers have set the precedent on developing ports for the DS.

    It's very long, it's well made, and looks fantastic.

    A great compilation that will remind you of why you got into video games in the first place.

    With rich characters brimming to the top with personality, an intriguing if highly coincidental plot, and tons of interesting uses of the DS, Hotel Dusk engages the mind and heart and takes players to an unexplored sector of the gaming universe and keeps them there for a long time.

    Sonic Team should really just ditch Sonic games. They are onto something much better with NiGHTS and with a little more polish and tightening up, this series could become something truly magnificent.

    This game may not appeal to modern gamers that haven’t played any of these before, but even with the lack of arranged soundtracks and versus modes, this is a must have for fans of the series that are missing any of these games from their collection, or simply want to have them all on one disc. Short load times and smooth play control make for an enjoyable experience at a fair price.

    If you can enjoy a fun, arcade shooter for your DS, Modern Warfare: Mobilized is a fine choice.

    Does it beat going out and just jogging a few laps, or going for a swim, or even going to the gym? Of course not. However, what Wii Fit brings is a fun way to get back into being active. The exercises display a good mastery over the Balance Board and a great way to show off the possibilities of the peripheral.

    Mighty Flip Champs is a great action puzzle game that truly takes advantage of the DS system for more then just a map and item screen. Its multidimensional gameplay system offers a great breath of fresh air to the genre and truly feels like a game not possible on any other system.

    The only real problem with ReBirth is that the quantity of content doesn’t quite justify the $10 price tag. Other than that, it’s another fantastic download from Konami and perhaps one of the best Contra titles yet.

    Wii controls draw players into the game more than before, though some sensitivity issues arise from the Wii's control scheme options for certain actions (like kicking). Visuals are below expectations, which is something EA needs to work on more in the next version.

    As far as completely original ground-up third party titles made for the Wii, Mushroom Men is one of the few good titles available.

    The game's presentation is really awesome. Maybe it's not technically impressive, but the artistic design of the visuals is really enjoyable and a large part of what makes De Blob such a joy to play. Painting Chroma City is a fresh and satisfying experience. Multiplayer modes are fun and the way the graphics and sound combine is one of this game's greatest features.

    Give Wii Music a try if you're growing lethargic of repeating the same songs in the same way over and over -- you might learn something about how music composition works, and you may discover your more creative side. Compared to other games of the genre and casual games in general, Wii Music is really more of a basic creative canvas than a "melt-your-fingers-off" game, but it enables its players to do a lot with a little and to do it nearly however they want -- it pulls this all off with a relative amount of finesse, too.

    All in all, I found The Dark Spire to be very engrossing and enjoyable.
    • 75 Metascore

    The Legendary Starfy is a solid platform game that bases the adventure on a simple but addictive gameplay. Perhaps adding some more functions for the touch screen wouldn’t have been bad, but it is not something that affects the final result.

    Wii controls do nothing to improve the game, but it's still classic Battalion Wars gameplay. A bit more depth in the strategy department, but overall the game is a bit easier and shorter than the original.

    It takes the Lego brand and brilliantly merges it with another genre. It offers a great learning curve and can be enjoyed by just about anyone. Definitely worth a look.

    One of the most refreshing and innovative Square Enix games in many years. While it doesn't do everything perfect, its attempts at branching out are admirable.
    • 68 Metascore

    Samba De Amigo is a welcome return to a Dreamcast classic, with tons of modes and content, as well as new songs for download. This game is well worth the price of admission. Only the bipolar difficulty and tricky IR sensitivity keep this from being the perfect Samba De Amigo experience.

    Despite its flaws, My Life as a King serves as a wonderful bridge title to bring Final Fantasy fans into the sim genre (and gamers at large, for that matter), blending strategy into the mix to add ample amounts of depth to the proceedings.
