G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den 2

09-06-2010

Less than two weeks ago, I reviewed G.G Series Ninja Karakuri Den, a two-dollar microgame that is part of a Japanese series of budget downloadables. It was a decent game that could have used a little more zest, which is why ...

Mass Effect 2: Lair of the Shadow Broker

09-14-2010

Better late than never! The latest piece of DLC for Mass Effect 2, Lair of the Shadow Broker, was released last week. As it is priced at 800 points, more expensive than any of the DLC to date, the obvious question is: is it g...

Tales of Elastic Boy - Mission 1

09-21-2010

When I first saw the trailer for Tales of Elastic Boy, my mind jumped to LocoRoco. With his rounded body and rabbit-ear antennae, the main character was a dead ringer for a bubbly, bouncy LocoRoco. With a fascination for one ...


 

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

09-23-2010

Kingdom Hearts fans are a long-suffering bunch. After feasting on the highly polished Kingdom Hearts II, they have had to make due with half-hearted gestures intended to tide them over until something significant could be pro...

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock

09-28-2010

Regular Nick: "Hey, The Dillinger Escape Plan made it into Guitar Hero! That's awesome. And, nice... you can play through Rush's 2112, and it's narrated by bassist and vocalist Geddy Lee himself. Man, this is going to rock." Warrior Nick: "Sweet holy hell, why did I just turn into a f**ing rock n' roll chupacabra?"

NHL 11

09-30-2010

Hockey is definitely not North America’s most popular sport, but even non-fans can recognize that the past two entries in EA Sports’ NHL franchise stand among the all-time great sports videogames. But with its sim...

Kirby's Epic Yarn

10-17-2010

When Kirby's Epic Yarn was announced, many people thought Nintendo was stringing us along, that the game would be poorly stitched together or otherwise patchy. A 2D platformer with a cute gimmick runs the risk of being threadbare, but it would appear that developer Good Feel has it all sewn up. You might worry that the bad yarn puns are a bit woolly, but I refuse to change my material.

Time Crisis: Razing Storm

10-25-2010

Those who think videogame reviewers have it easy are, to be honest, mostly correct. Playing videogames all day and getting paid to tell people what one thinks is a pretty sweet deal. Then along comes a game like Razing Storm,...

Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage

11-01-2010

Before writing this review, I promised myself that I would not write "ATATATATATATA" or make any reference to things being "already dead." Unfortunately, such a noble ambition is next to impossible. In fact, before I even mad...

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit

11-09-2010

With 2008’s Burnout Paradise, Criterion Games solidified its spot as the king of fast-paced, arcade-style racing. So when Electronic Arts decided it was ready to take the Need for Speed series back to its earl...

Knights in the Nightmare

11-09-2010

Reviewing a game that you've already played in some other form is usually pretty easy. And to be honest, it's rarely ever quite as good the second time around. These days, with everything being ported and translated, the chan...

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2

11-10-2010

Most games based on a licensed property are terrible. It's a sad truth of the gaming world, and many players have accepted this as a foregone conclusion. Licensed games are bad until proven good. Merely tolerable licensed ...

Sonic Colors

11-14-2010

While Sonic the Hedgehog has become quite famous for a string of terrible games over the past ten years, that's only really true in terms of home console output. Hyperbole states that we haven't had a good Sonic game since So...

The Undergarden

11-15-2010

Describing The UnderGarden is a very tricky prospect, because every description you could give automatically runs the risk of turning potential customers away. It's a slow-paced game, with no narrative to speak of, and your o...

EA Sports MMA

11-15-2010

Quite a bit of attention has been put on mixed martial arts due to the marketing efforts of Zuffa, UFC's Parent company. This attention has not only made UFC a household name, but has changed the sport as well. EA Sports MMA ...

[UPDATE] Whew! Just played through an additional 130 levels! Review updated! There was a time when I was desperate for more Mario vs. Donkey Kong. In the beginning, the series marked the return of the "real" Donkey Kong games...

A few years ago, I discovered escape-the-room Flash games and was hooked instantly. Shorter and more compact than your typical point-and-click adventure, escape-the-room games such as Crimson Room are a great way to kill time...

Namco Museum Megamix

11-18-2010

Let it not be said that Namco Bandai is afraid of a re-release. Namco Museum Megamix isn't just a re-release -- it's a re-release of a compilation of re-releases! An updated version of Namco Museum Remix, which was first rele...

Call of Duty Black Ops

A lot of people don't even know that  Call of Duty: Black Ops is out on the Wii. Activision has done next to nothing to promote the Wii version. Still, I know that you, the discerning audience of Destructoid is aware of ...

Donkey Kong Country Returns

In 1994, the original Donkey Kong Country single-handedly saved the Super Nintendo from losing to the Genesis. The gorgeous platformer had everyone talking, with its solid gameplay, classic characters, and, most importantly, ...

The Shoot

If there's one thing The Shoot does really well, it's make the player wish that each level was its own videogame. The artistic style is just so fantastic that levels feel like they would have been an awesome title in its own ...

id's upcoming post-apocalyptic shooter RAGE is still almost a year away, but why should we wait that long before getting to blast some of the ugliest mutants this side of Total Recall? In order to keep the hype going for the full game, id has released RAGE on the iPhone as an on-rails shooter. Now that's good advertising!
