DSiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
The Dragon Quest series has been around for over 20 years and during that time, the series has done much to deliver some strong RPG elements that earned it the popularity it has today. Dispelling the standard Dragon Quest formula of old, Dragon Quest Wars steps in an entirely different direction with its first game on the DSiWare service. Rather than going along the...  

Siege of Spinner Cay
WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
A fearless pirate tries to save his beloved wife from a sinister villain and winds up cursed and responsible for chaos all over the Caribbean! This is the situation Guybrush Threepwood has found himself in Telltale's episodic series, Tales of Monkey Island. When we left Guybrush off at the end of the first chapter...  

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Ah, the military. Full of combat training, rigorous physical tests and... brain training? Drill Sergeant Mindstrong introduces players to a new concept for a party game where players will not only be subjected to combat training but some mental exercises as well - which will surely come in handy in the war! As strange as the concept may seem, Drill Sergeant Mindstrong brings...  

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
When it was first announced that the creators of Excitebike 64 and Nitrobike would be spear-heading a project on WiiWare when back when the service was first announced, this aroused some interest. Left Field Productions took it upon themselves to design a unique, fun, multiplayer-focused poker game for the service as a means of testing the waters...  

Launch of the Screaming Narwhal
WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Point-and-click games sure have been losing their luster in the last little while, especially because these games haven't been explored as much as they used to be. Needless to say, the genre is in need of revisiting. Recognizing this, Telltale has been at the forefont at developing point-and-click adventure games in hopes... more

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Since its inception, the WiiWare service has had a way of bringing simple, yet fun concepts into the hands of gamers. Even some computer-based games have hit the service in efforts of appealing to a new audience and thereby taking advantage of the advantage this presents to new developers. Here comes Incoming: a simple strategy, light-action game that fits half that bill... more

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Neko Entertainment sure has been busy in bringing past PS2 games to the WiiWare service in hopes of finding a new audience for these older games. Neko has been focusing on the Cocoto franchise since WiiWare launched so to see a game from a completely different series come to WiiWare is a nice surprise. Heracles Chariot Racing marks itself as the third game on the service belonging... more

Wii - Review by Murat
The Conduit excited many fans of the first-person shooter genre on the Wii ever since the first announcement over a year ago. With outstanding graphics and super-intelligent AI even in early production, the game managed to attract a fan base pretty quickly. However, despite the popularity and much of its hype, will The Conduit live up to the developers long term goals and fulfill the players desire... more

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Lately, it seems like wherever you turn there's a poker game right around the corner. Doesn't matter what console you're playing on, it's clear that if you love poker, you have a lot to choose from! Digital Leisure has decidedly jumped on the bandwagon to deliver Texas Hold'em Tournament, the very first such game on the WiiWare service. The question is, does Digital Leisure succeed at what... more

WiiWare - Review by Billy White
Recently, there have been a bunch of retro-styled titles on WiiWare, alongside lots of tat and the occasional gem. With Bit Boy!!, Bplus have managed to combine all three of these different categories in one game, which looks at every different gaming generation from 4-Bit to 128-Bit. The gameplay doesn't offer anything too outstanding and doesn't include many changes from generation to generation... more

WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
WiiWare has been home to many quirky titles with some pretty unique art directions since its inception last year, but few will come close to the unique art styles presented in Semnat Studios' first WiiWare game, Eduardo The Samurai Toaster. Semnat certainly has pioneered a winning title for the game with an interesting premise for a genre well-suited for WiiWare, but while the game may look... more

Let's Catch
WiiWare - Review by KnucklesSonic8
Let's Catch marks the very first WiiWare title to be published by SEGA outside of Japan, a publisher many are hoping will continue to support the service with other titles from past franchises and such. That being said, Let's Catch is not a game by Sonic Team, but by Prope - the fairly-recent company formed by Yuji Naka after he left Sonic Team. Let's Catch is a title that coincides with Let's Tap... more

WiiWare - Review by Murat
One genre that the Wii is lacking on so far is the real-time strategy genre. With only a few RTS titles compared to the large number of action, adventure and party games that are currently on the system, it feels as though real strategy games have been cast aside. But now, that’s all about to change with Swords & Soldiers, the first 2D side-scrolling real-time strategy on the Wii... more

WiiWare - Review by Billy White
When it comes to reinventing and creating sequels to old classics, WiiWare has certainly had it's fair share of titles. From Star Soldier R, to Mega Man 9, the games have arrived in several different forms, each with distinguishing features. Despite the retro feel and nostalgia that these games have had, New Adventure Island sadly just feels like a generic platformer, which isn't a good start... more

WiiWare - Review by James Fluker
Defend Your Castle started out as a free online flash game, where the aim was to pick up stick figure people and drop them from a high enough altitude to their doom in order to protect your castle. After a certain amount of time, the level would end giving the player the chance to save and upgrade your defence before continuing on. Each level ramps up the difficulty, eventually unleashing harder enemies and weapons on you, such as catapults and giants... more

DSiWare - Review by Billy White
When it comes to sports titles, the DS isn't really know for having the best games in the genre, so it came as a surprise when Gameloft revealed that they were releasing a full football game complete with real player names and teams, alongside several modes, multiplayer options and even some DSi enhancements... all in one DSiWare download. As it turned out, the game was simply an enhanced port of Real Football 2009 (already available as a retail game)... more
