LEGO Lord of the Rings Box

LEGO: The Lord of the Rings

Thursday, January 31, 2013 No Comments

There must be something wrong with me… Once I pick up LEGO: LOTR, I can’t put it down. Sure, that bodes well for the game, but it’s an absolute horror for my circadian rhythm! It’s a fun adaptation of Peter Jackson’s films, distilling the action down to the core story and throwing in typical LEGO […]

Just Dance 4

Monday, November 5, 2012 No Comments

Just Dance 4 manifests differently depending on the people playing it. You have those who have never played it but are enthusiastic and are comfortable making fools of themselves. You have those who are too shy and anxious to make fools of themselves. And you have those who are pros at the game who are […]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013

Tuesday, October 16, 2012 No Comments

Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 is one tough cookie of a game. It took me many losses to finally score a single goal. But let me tell you, the moment I did, it was like finding a cheesecake… amazing! Moreover, every subsequent goal filled me with the same sense of satisfaction. In terms of graphics, the […]

Mario Party 9

Tuesday, March 27, 2012 No Comments

Mario Party 9 is a great game in little doses, which is exactly what the essence of the game is. With eighty mini-games and multiple modes to play them in, this game is jam packed with miniature fun! However, being enjoyable in discrete quantities also means that the appeal doesn’t last very long. After playing […]

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Wednesday, January 4, 2012 1 Comment

I think it’s time Ubisoft stopped making movie-based video games. Does that mean I’m about to call the Tintin movie-based game awful and not worth touching with a 10-foot pole? No, actually. It has its graphical issues in the cutscenes and an aggravating lack of camera control in the free-roaming 3D sections (specifically, none), however […]

Rayman Origins

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 No Comments

Michel Ancel and team have done it again, by going in reverse (sort of). Rayman Origins is an absolute blast from the past as far as the platforming elements are concerned, but there is so much more happening in this game, with its hand-drawn characters, and environments, its wonderfully oddball musical score, and its surprisingly […]

Zelda-Skyward-Sword

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Thursday, November 24, 2011 No Comments

I wish the Wii was able to output better graphics. I feel that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would’ve gained a few extra points had it had sharper textures, and richer environments. However, that is not a flaw with the game itself. In fact, there is only one fault I found; there’s a considerable […]

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 No Comments

I’ve played a handful of Kirby games in my day, and I think it’s safe to say that Kirby is not synonymous with difficult. In fact, it’s actually closely related to easy. But easy doesn’t mean bad. Sure Kirby’s Return to Dream Land doesn’t offer a challenging experience, but it’s not meant to be. It’s […]

Tron Evolution

Tron: Evolution

Friday, April 8, 2011 No Comments

I really didn’t like Tron: Legacy. I found it to be a shallow, uninspired bore and a half. However, if there was one thing I thought about aside from the fact that I didn’t like it, was, how much better would this movie be in video game form? Well, after playing Tron: Evolution for a […]

Metroid: Other M

Friday, March 4, 2011 2 Comments

Metroid: Other M follows Samus Aran in her first completely character-driven title, as she investigates a mysterious distress call from a seemingly empty bottle ship in the middle of nowhere. It’s the first title in the franchise in which Samus speaks, and features Ninja Gaiden-style gameplay, mixing 2D/3D side-scrolling, third-person shooters and first-person shooters. That […]
