  • Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City Review

    Posted: September 1, 2010

    Average User Rating 

    After a slightly disappointing encore, Etrian Odyssey is back in fine form with new classes and interesting ocean exploration mechanic. And while it's as tough as ever, a number of refinements also help make it the most accessible entry to date.

    Posted: July 9, 2010

    Average User Rating 

    Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies makes subtle changes to the tried-and-true Japanese role-playing formula. With respect for the classics the new adventure for the Nintendo DS forges into the future, casting aside random battles, introducing multiplayer and giving players more ways to customize the way they play.

  • Puzzle Quest 2 Review

    Posted: June 25, 2010

    Average User Rating 

    Puzzle Quest 2 is the long-awaited follow-up to Infinite Interactive's surprise-hit puzzle/RPG, marking a welcome return to the classically addictive gameplay of the original. It's a much darker, less epic-feeling game than its predecessor, but the puzzles are as addictive as ever.

    CiNG, the team behind cult hit Hotel Dusk, return with another murder mystery, but this one's an interactive crime novel better left on the shelf.

    Posted: April 6, 2010

    Average User Rating 

    WarioWare D.I.Y. seems like the natural final evolutionary step of a series made famous on hundreds of simple, amusing, and downright bizarre ideas. What's the step? It lets the entire world's simple, amusing, and downright bizarre ideas get a chance to shine.

    Average User Rating 

    Space-faring RPG Infinite Space brings a ton of unique content and depth to Nintendo's handheld, but a general lack of polish keeps it from living up to the potential to of its premise.

    Nintendo has revived the Game Boy Color classics Pokemon Gold and Silver for the DS with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. While the biggest changes are cosmetic, the core gameplay withstands the test of time, and delivers a great Pokemon update for today's contemporary handhelds.

    The latest entry in Capcom's legal comedy/thriller series features a new lead and a new perspective. Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth won't rest until he's discovered the truth in this brain-busting adventure.

  • Glory of Heracles Review

    Average User Rating 

    Glory of Heracles marks the US debut of a long-running Japanese RPG series. It's definitely got an old-school feel to it, but is that to its detriment?

  • Sands of Destruction Review

    Posted: January 21, 2010 | 5 Comments

    Average User Rating 

    As the supposed spiritual successor to Squaresoft's 1998 PS1 classic Xenogears, Sands of Destruction has the pedigree, but not necessarily the polish. However, ultimately, it manages to transcend its quirky shortcomings to deliver an entertaining RPG.

  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks Review

    Posted: December 7, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    As the follow-up to the first Zelda adventure on the DS, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks has a lot to live up to. Although it was a great game, Phantom Hourglass had some fairly noticeable flaws that required attention in this sequel. Thankfully, this new adventure proves itself worthy of the Zelda name.

  • Nostalgia Review Review

    Posted: November 10, 2009

    Average User Rating 

    Nostalgia is an awkward mix of 19th century colonial whimsy and the rigid gameplay of old school role-playing games. It has all of the right ingredients to be a crafty throwback, but its repetitive formula and rote combat take all the sweetness out of the cake.

    Average User Rating 

    Though you can't blame Activision for wanting to extend one of their most valuable brands to as many platforms as possible, they've done a disservice to both the brand and the unique strengths of the DS in this shoe-horn job.
