    If you have a DS, find a way to procure this game. You will find yourself mesmerized in a way that is profound, delightful and extremely satisfying. [JPN Import]

    Despite its admirable music and noteworthy play control, Pac 3 is too bland for the common gamer to take notice. It's pleasant for a while, but you'll quickly grow tired of it.

    One heck of a game that rises above its genre as something everyone can play.

    At its worst, Shadow is a solid platformer with enough fun to keep hardcore Sonic fans in one place for a few days. At its best, it's an engaging gameplay experience that isn't jaded by its otherwise glaring storyline-related setbacks.

    It would almost be a extraordinary game to play if only it weren't for the game's bouncy difficulty levels, slightly sluggish gameplay when groups of enemies are present and the requirement of all players having separate game cards.

    But what about all those who can't get online? Sadly you're out of luck, because the single player is fairly repetitive and the cheap computer players don't help it.

    Unlike the AI, the graphics and sound are pretty good.

    On paper, Narnia could have been so much more, but the predictable and often annoying gameplay mechanics, combined with unpolished presentations and weak sound effects take away from the overall experience.

    A short game. It has its flaws, but it can be an enjoyable title, if only for a little while, and the price is a little cheaper than other titles coming out this holiday season.

    Simply put, there's just not much substance. Almost everything there is to experience can be found in the first couple of levels, and what little is added to the game later on certainly doesn't make it worth a play-through, much less a purchase.

    If pinball play isn't your cup of tea, you may get bored or even frustrated before you get accomplished enough to unlock new tables. The bottom line is that if you are a fan of Metroid and even causally like to play pinball, you will become quickly addicted to aiding Samus in her quest to kick alien ass.

    A must for hardcore Mario buffs, as well as those GameCube owners dying to get on the Dance Dance bandwagon.

    I cannot recommend this game due to its poor graphics, side scrolling glitches, bizarre gameplay, and mediocre ... well, everything.

    If you can't sit down with three other friends, don't bother, but I'll tell you right now this kicks the pants out of "Mario Kart: Double Dash!!" - yes, you heard me.

    Underneath the less than stellar presentation, is a game that pulls off is a complex, tactical, and worthwhile adventure.

    A very engaging experience packed with fun and interesting characters and puzzles that really make you think.

    It's dramatic and overdone in typical Burton style. You can continue where you last saved or simply quit, but I'd recommend letting Jack die at least once just so that you can witness how cool it looks.

    It seems Konami could have made better use of the touch screen feature on the DS, and also taken a few more liberties with innovative game play.

    While it can get repetitive at times, Trauma Center is an incredibly fun and unique game experience that offers some of the fastest paced stylus action out there.

    If the graphics were reverted to the Game Boy look, people wouldn't notice the difference.

    Remember the 30 day time limit in the original Pikmin and how amazingly stressful that was? Well picture that and multiply it by five. I almost felt like I was baby sitting and not getting paid. Boring, frustrating gameplay that will leave you in tears of anger.

    A fun game that's worth a play through but is brought down by a lack of variety in the game play.

    Fans of any Disney Princess will adore the game, provided that they are newer to the world of video games.

    It contains solid gameplay, which involves a great amount of tactical decision-making.

    Players will wonder what could have been had Nintendo and Namco implemented a deeper single player experience. Where's the season mode? Thankfully multiplayer exhibitions greatly extend the game's life.

    This is one of the most addictive games I've played in recent years.

    Apart from virtually every aspect of gaming that Ultimate Destruction pulls off beautifully, the pure raw fun to be had with this title alone makes it worth a purchase. There's madcap enjoyment to be had here the kind of which you'd find in "Super Smash Bros. Melee."

    You can't help but fall in love with the little critters. Nintendogs is entertaining, innovative, and packs quite a bit of staying power thanks to all the great unlockables in the game. Believe me, when you get it, you'll fall in love with this incredible, complex game and the little furry pal that goes with it. [JPN Import]

    Dual Strike has a lot to offer, and it looks and sounds better than ever. The game has the same traditional look as before but from a more isotopic perspective, which gives a nice 3D sppearance.

    To somebody used to reflex-hungry games like Wario Ware or the videogame crack equivalent Meteos, Kim Possible 3 is nothing more than a platformer which could be very solid had the controls been tightened up and the audio enhanced before release. To a Kim Possible fan, however, it becomes an extension of the television show and takes on a interactive element unable to be experienced passively.
