Mario Slam Basketball

Getting basketball to play realistically in a virtual environment, it’s been tried many times before. The minority has actually succeeded in this goal. Think about 2K Sports’ NBA 2K’s or the NBA Street (although not very realistic) series by EA Big, every game being worth playing. Unfortunately there are also less successful games out there, […]

Tenchu: Dark Secret

The Tenchu franchises once was a promising series when it made its first appearance on Sonys PS1. It continued its pace while going through to PS2, but after a third game it all just kind of went downhill. This DS version doesn’t seem to become much better than any of its recent predecessors, or does […]

The more mature gamers amongst us – I’m not counting myself thanks to a premature midlife crisis – will certainly remember the Star Fox series from the golden era of the Super Nintendo and the Nintendo64. We’ve seen many series making a comeback on the DS and now Star Fox Command joins that trend Pilot […]

Age of Empires: The Age of Kings

On PC we’ve known the Age of Empires series already for centuries: a series of RTS games that managed to impress quite a lot some time ago. Surprisingly now the DS gets its own episode, but luckily the makers decided to take on an original approach and completely redesigned the game. The gameplay looks more […]

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon

About a year ago, I asked my 14-year old nephew why he always played Pokémon games. For years, he and his GBA were impossible to seperate and it was always some Pokemon game that he had put in the device. Even when you got a brand new DS and a couple of fun games, he […]

Metroid Prime: Hunters

Metroid is – together with Zelda and Mario – already years one of the most succesful games of Nintendo. The first game in the series was released on the NES ans since then there’s been no Big N console without a Metroid game. Always you would play with the best bounty hunter Samus Aran but […]

Megaman Battle Network 5: Double Team

Megaman is one of the older heroes in the world of games. Just like Mario and Sonic he already has a long history behind him, but it seems like this wasn’t enough for the little hero with his arm canon. This is the last new adventure in the Megaman series and it’s great. A game […]

Animal Crossing: Wild World

With a happy concept and cartoony look, Nintendo wants to attract an other public, besides the hardcore gamers. Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS) fits perfectly in that picture. Maybe that is why it’s labelled “kiddie” so often. But how childish is this game really? And what’s the difference with the predecessor on the GameCube? It’s […]

Sonic Rush

In the nineties, Sonic was Sega’s great saviour. In these days, it was very difficult for Sega to compete with Nintendo and more specific, with their famous plumber, Mario. Sonic seemed to be a great success. The blue hedgehog was incredibly fast and the games were very addictive. This success went on until Sonic had […]

Nintendo Touch Golf: Birdie Challenge

As a kid, I loved minigolf. Every journey abroad, I dragged my parents to the course that looks the most spectacular. I had never tried real golf, until last year i suddenly got an initiation. The first thing I noticed: physical it’s a lot harder than you would think. And I’m not even talking about […]

Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble!

With previous Viewtiful Joe games, Clover succeeded to combine old school Double Dragon fights with great special effects such as slow motion and fast forward. With VJ: Double Trouble they take a great step towards the Nintendo DS. 3, 2, 1, … Henshin-a-gogo baby! Although, in the first two Viewtiful Joe games, there are a […]

Super Monkey Ball Touch and Roll

After two successful predecessors for Nintendo Gamecube, Super Monkey Ball is now available for Nintendo DS. And because the NDS has two screens and a touchscreen, it’s almost an unwritten law that you put that in the name of every game. Even Sega doesn’t make an exception: long live Super Monkey Ball Touch and Roll! […]
