A Welcome Change 5

Compared to the previous titles in the series, Metroid:  Other M is a different beast.  A third-person action and exploration game like its side-scrolling predecessors, it allows movement in 3D space.  The player isn't always allowed to go anywhere, even if they have the equipment to take on the challenges within an area that's been sealed off.  The story is given more priority than ever before, and Samus isn't alone in the fight.  Yet, for everything that's different, the game is s...

A worthy addition to anyone's fighting game library. 2

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom:  Ultimate All-Stars is a game that few thought would ever see the light of day.  The original TvC game, Cross Generation of Heroes, was a Japan-exclusive release that was made with that nation's audience squarely in mind, due largely to half of the roster being made up of characters from the library of animation studio Tatsunoko Production.  However, with effort made on the part of both Capcom and Tatsunoko, miles of red tape were cleared and an enhanced versio...

The Ways of the Samurai are numerous and rewarding. 2

Way of the Samurai 3 is the latest game in a series of open-world titles set during the age of the samurai.  The story is set in a region of Japan called Amana, where conflict is brewing.  The Fujimori clan overthrew the previously ruling Sakurai clan.  Now the Fujimori rule with tyranny while those loyal to the Sakurai clan have banded together as the Ouka, amassing their own power through hooliganism.  Caught in the middle are the townspeople of Takatane, who only want to live in peace.   Aman...

Square Enix and Disney pull off another winner. 1

Kingdom Hearts:  358/2 Days is a DS installment of a series that has quietly become something more than just another peanut butter-in-my-chocolate crossover.  Though the series gained fame for its mixing of Disney and Final Fantasy characters, the Kingdom Hearts franchise also has a growing cast of original characters as the stars of the show.  For the first few games, the player was put in the role of Sora, a teenager with the power to wield the power of a ...

A Not Terrible Hit of Nostalgia 1

The Game & Watch series was a collection of handheld LCD titles released by Nintendo in the early to mid-1980s.  Predating the Game Boy, each game was its own handheld, complete with a built in alarm clock, thus earning the moniker "Game & Watch."  The Game & Watch Collection for the Nintendo DS recreates three games from the line; Oil Panic, Donkey Kong, and Greenhouse.  What's more notable about the title however is that it is only available through Club Nintendo, the rewards progr...

A disappointment. 1

Nippon Ichi Software's Rhapsody:  A Musical Adventure is just as its name implies.  The game is a music-themed RPG for the DS about a girl named Cornet and her magical puppet Kururu that in a unique twist presents its story in the form of a musical.  Unfortunately, the actual game that supports the concept is far too simplistic to sustain it.The game begins with the peasant girl Cornet, who dreams of marrying a handsome prince.  With help from Kururu, she manages to enter a contest to determine ...

Grindhouse Goodness 6

If there's one genre in particular that's experienced a bit of a renaissance since the introduction of the Wii, it's the on-rails light gun shooter. Games like Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and The House of the Dead 2 & 3 Return have proven to sell well on Nintendo's little white box, so it seems only natural that Sega would try to go after that audience again with an all-new game. Thus we have Headstrong Games' House of the Dead: Overkill.A mad scientist and a stripper with a lust...

As goofy as the premise may be, it's actually a fun game. 3

Ouendan and Elite Beat Agents.  The game centers around Sabrina, a young teenage girl who encounters a double of herself from another world.  This other Sabrina happens to be the princess of a kingdom.  In a switch of The Prince and the Pauper proportions, Sabrina the student agrees to masquerade as the princess and tak...

Mario Super Sluggers is a fun game with a few shortcomings. 1

Mario Super Sluggers is a new Mario-themed baseball title and a sequel to Mario Superstar Baseball on the GameCube.  The original Superstar Baseball was a fun game that left plenty of room for improvement, and for its part, Super Sluggers does manage to seize on some of those opportunities, particularly with the use of the Wii's motion controls.  Still, it's hard to see the game as anything more than an upgraded version of Superstar Baseball and not a full-fledged sequel.The game provides three ...

Path of Radiance is one of the best games in the series. 1

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, the ninth game in the long-running series and the third to be released outside of Japan, also holds a number of series firsts. It's the first and only Fire Emblem game on the GameCube, the first to use three-dimensional graphics, and the first to use FMV movie sequences and voice acting. That being said, while the looks have gotten a major facelift, the gameplay remains largely the same, featuring strategic battles that are just as fun and addictive as ever. Path ...
