    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.

    That being said, if you are a fan of the series you will definitely enjoy this game. This was the most fun I have had with a DS game in quite some time.

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

    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.

    Despite being the third title in a spinoff series, and the 7th Mario RPG, Bowser’s Inside Story is perhaps the most imaginative and well-crafted of them all.

    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.

    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.

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

    It ultimately suffers from trying too hard to be innovative and forgets the important part of being user friendly.

    If you’re a Pokemon fanatic, the kind that has bought every last iteration Nintendo has released, then you’ve most likely already purchased either Heartgold/SoulSilver. However, if you’ve only dabbled in the series, it’s still highly recommended you give one of these two a try.

    Enjoying Mario in the genre that saw him born is always a great pleasure, even if you are not a fan of the platform titles. Nintendo returns to its specialty: to offer hours and hours of fun by giving us games with their own personality and a shellproof gameplay.

    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.

    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.

    I know that it is almost certain that all the Zelda fans are going to buy all the titles related to the saga. I just ask you not to make the mistake of seeing "Spirit Tracks" as just an extra portable title. "Link’s Awakening" is enough proof that these versions are worthy enough and have distinguished the series since the beginning.

    Boom Blox Bash Party tops the original in every way.

    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.

    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.

    There’s only so much that a developer can do with Tetris before they expand into a different genre or create something that doesn’t even feel like the original game, which is why it’s so impressive what Hudson has done with this title.

    The Wii doesn’t have many competitive multiplayer titles, but it now has one of the best in "Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Monster Hunter Tri is a complete triumph for the Wii. It features the best online set up of any game on the system and provides gamers with an adventure that is both deep and rewarding. Combined with the Classic Controller Pro, Monster Hunter Tri is the best deal on the system; you would be crazy to miss out.

    Fans of the original wanting to know where Travis has been will want to pick this up, while people new to the Suda 51 universe would be best at a rental.

    If you crave a unique RTS with the motion control experience, then you need to play Swords and Soldiers.

    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.

    Mega Man 9 sets out to be a better game than Mega Man 2 but for all of the same reasons why that game is respected: it succeeds, and it proves that gameplay is king while also artfully taking us back to an era where this was much more evident than it is today.

    Even if the branding were stripped from the title, this game would still be a solid and enjoyable fighting game. Bleach fans will enjoy the title more due to the nature of the storyline and the general presentation of the game.
