Reviews

Magical Starsign – DS –

  • Overly Cute RPG
  • Group of magic students out to save their teacher
  • Each stundet has elemental power
  • Standard RPG – with few choices
  • Very linear stroy – only one place to go next
  • Puzzle are mainly choosing the correct element for the obstacle
  • Graphics are colorful – each planet you visit having an elemental theme
  • Audio is SNES quality
  • Video clips are present
  • Good time killer but not for seasoned gamers

Big Brain Academy – DS

  • Not really a game, technically speaking
  • A bunch of mini puzzles that rate the mass of your brain and then offers some funny quips about you.
  • You can either practice the mini games at different difficulty levels in 1 of the 5 different categories or you can choose to take an overall evaluation.

Madden 2007 – Wii

  • Full featured version of the game.
  • Graphics look good although they could be nicer…
  • Sound is great… it’s Madden.
  • The control is where it’s at… everything is done in the Wii way.
  • It’s difficult to get learn but it’s fun and there are tutorials throughout.
  • The initial tutorial is incredibly well done and you get points.
  • The mini games are really fun and again the help you practice.
  • Best in game moment… I was defending, the ball was thrown at the receiver, I panicked and waved my arms my player swated the ball out of the air!

Hitman Blood Money – PS2 –

  • 3rd person action / stealth game
  • Play as a contract killer taking out assignments
  • each levelis open in how you go about your assignment
  • graphically as good as any in the genre
  • I still perfer Splinter Cell (mainly because online)

Retro Gaming Moment
Download of the week

War Zone 2100

  • Released originally in 1999 for PC and PS1
  • Eidos gave out the source under GNU license
  • An RTS that is pretty average
  • Runs is a smallish window on my system
