The wackiest Destructoid reviews of 2011

Destructoid reviews can get something of a ... spirited ... reaction from readers. Our scores don't always line up with the majority of other publications, and some gamers can't stand that. However, as we learned this year, e...

Presenting the new-look Destructoid reviews format

We at Destructoid are always looking to improve our reviews. They're a huge part of our site and one of the most controversial aspects of any videogame community, so ensuring that reviews are clear, concise and fair should be...

The Official Destructoid Review Guide

It's been quite a while since we've updated our reviews guide from 2011, and now is as good a time as ever to set the record straight once again, and keep our readers informed of the review process. Please read this (or at least skim it over) before you send us hate mail over a high or low review. To facilitate that process, I'll keep things brief and focus mainly on the major points.

Destructoid review: Mahjongg Artifacts 2 (PSP minis)

It's mahjongg. I'm not going to tell you that this is some groundbreaking videogame. But I will say that I played the hell out of this title. It seemed to fill some gap in my PSPgo library that I didn't know needed filling. S...

Destructoid review: Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble

You know how it goes. There's always that one badass at school that no one messes with. Everyone around knows that this particular badass has dignified himself by pulling enough sucker punches and breaking enough noses over t...

Destructoid review: Forza Motorsport 3

Racing games are not for everybody. Well, the old ones were, but time went by, we slowly got away from the simplicity of just getting over the finish line first. Now we're at a point where we're controlling high-end simulatio...

Destructoid review: Bookworm Adventures 2

Before I begin my review of Bookworm Adventures Volume 2, I have a dirty confession to make. As a games blogger, I know I really should have played every game ever made, but you know, I haven't. Therefore, I must make the gui...

Destructoid Review: Pangya: Fantasy Golf

Imagine a golf game like, say, Hot Shots Golf, but with an over-the-top presentation and an RPG-ish layout and story. Oh, and have it starring a cast containing scantily clad girl pirates, huge-breasted military commanders, a...

Destructoid Review: Devil Survivor

So there you are with your friends, hanging out in Shibuya, Tokyo, minding your own business. Your chesty friend Yuzu (nicknamed Yoohoo) was busy being...well, chesty, while your nerdy friend Atsuro was rambling on about comp...

Destructoid review: Clover

Clover is one of those games that would immediately catch the eye of a certain type of gamer -- that is, the gamer always on the lookout for something slightly different than the rest of what's out there. Described as a "...

Destructoid Review: Galaga Remix (iPhone)

What is this? An iPhone game that controls perfectly fine, with no complaints connected to the lack of a d-pad or buttons? I know! I almost couldn't believe it myself. And a port of a classic game that, again, has no issues o...

Destructoid review: Class of Heroes

If you're reading a review of an Atlus game because you're a fan of any of their other titles, you may have some idea what to expect: beautifully drawn characters, old school fundmentals and often brutal difficulty. While thi...

Destructoid Review: Knights in the Nightmare

You've never played anything like Knights in the Nightmare. How can I be so sure? Well, every time I try to explain the game play, I find that I have to explain it twice, even to seasoned gamers. But that's not a bad thing, m...

Destructoid review: Trixel

I've come to really love my iPhone for the bouts of quick and easy gaming it can provide, which comes in especially handy for impatient moments such as waiting in line at the bank. I have a modest handful of favorites for tha...

Destructoid review: Resistance: Retribution

Resistance: Retribution has been getting a lot of love for taking all the features of a console game and transporting it to the handheld realm of the PSP. The fellows at Sony Bend have done a great job indeed of cramming a hu...

Destructoid review: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

We all know the story when it comes to videogames based on movies. Rushed out of the gate to coincide with the theatrical release, lazily put together to cash in and make a quick buck off the back of some Hollywood travesty. ...
