    cylemoore's Dark Void Zero (DSiWare) review

    Just long enough to relive some of the NES glory days.

     To start off this game has only three levels, but those three levels are very fun if you were a gamer in the NES era. The game is short and sweet and straight to the point.

For everyone with a DSi I would still pick this game up and for $5 it is worth every penny.

      You’ve got to hand it to Capcom. They sure know how handle retro games, be it remakes (Bionic Commando Rearmed) or brand new affairs (Megaman 9), It’ll be high quality stuff. Their newest retro based game, Dark Void Zero does not disrupt that fact. You can tell Capcom spent alot of time on this game simply on all the backstory they created for the game. From dual screened arcade cabinets to Jimmy Fallon (Seriously!), the “history” of Dark Void Zero is definitely something fun to read up on.  ...
