Geometry Wars: Galaxies

11-30-2007

In November of 2005, the Xbox 360 launched with a number of retail-based games. While the launch games were (arguably) solid, not all will be remembered as classics. But Bizarre Creation's Xbox Live Arcade title, Geometry War...

World of Goo

10-17-2008

Gone are the days when owning your favorite game music required spending exorbitant amounts of money on a Japanese import. I say good riddance (though I still cherish my old Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack CD). These days, s...

Gradius Rebirth

03-16-2009

Just like with 2D fighting games, there are basically two types of shmup fans: those who love them primarily for the fun of developing the skills required to play them with any modicum of success, and those that are still att...

Lego Rock Band

11-30-2009

A year ago, the music game genre was at its peak. Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour had recently launched to rave reviews, and looking back, it appears that the developers of those games -- Harmonix and Neversoft, respec...

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories

12-11-2009

No weapons? Wii waggle? And a "re-imagining" of the first Silent Hill game is what they're calling this? The combination sounds like Silent Hill: My Worst Nightmare, and I don't mean that in a good way. Boy, was I ever wrong....

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

01-27-2010

At the time of this writing, I have just finished No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle after a 16-hour marathon play through, with occasional breaks to nap and go to the bathroom. This is not the best way to go about playing ...


 

Wii Fit

[Editor's Note: We're not just a (rad) news site -- we also publish opinions/editorials from our community & employees like this one, though be aware that it may not jive with the opinions of Destructoid as a whole, or ho...

Green Day: Rock Band

06-08-2010

After a number of misses from its competition, last year Harmonix and MTV Games proved that it was possible to do a band-specific music game "right." The Beatles: Rock Band was an incredible journey through the band's career,...


 

Mario Sports Mix

06-15-2010

Mario has been on the baseball diamond, on the tennis court, out on the golf green, and on the soccer field. There might be one or two that I've overlooked, but you get the idea. Mario is an athletic guy. Shtick's getting ol...

Tournament of Legends

07-04-2010

You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots, Primal Rage, Eternal C...

Toribash

07-20-2010

Do you know Toribash? It has existed as a free-to-play game for a while now on Mac and PC, and it even came to WiiWare several years ago. The turn-based, muscle micromanagement fighter starring Vectorman's cousins may now ga...

Viral Survival

08-11-2010

Viral Survival was released on WiiWare back in May. If you take a look at your wall calendar, you'll notice that it is currently the month of August. That is, of course, if you've remembered to keep track of the days. Otherwi...

Lilt Line

08-27-2010

Faceless games like Lilt Line have a tough time getting attention. Like I said to Ashley Davis when we played the game together at PAX 2010, without a main character to identify with, these purely abstract titles have a tough...


 

ThruSpace

09-04-2010

Remember that Japanese Tetris video, where contestants have to contort their bodies to safely pass though gaps on fast-approaching walls? Well, this upcoming WiiWare game by Nintendo and KeysFactory looks a lot like that. Su...


 

Wii Party

09-04-2010

Are you a cam whore? Do you love the Wii? I mean reeeeeeeally love the Wii enough to prance around like Goofus McGee and have your antics broadcast around the country? Then maybe you have what it takes to star in an upcoming ...

And Yet It Moves

09-12-2010

If you haven't already heard, the third Humble Indie Bundle is here. Starting now, if you purchase the bundle, you will get a pass to play Minecraft for free until August 14th. Pretty cool stuff. For the three people that sti...

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 ...

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?"

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.

FlingSmash

11-08-2010

FlingSmash introduces you to the varicolored world of Zip, a curious little critter who looks like a cross between a tropical fruit and a tennis ball. When his home, Suthon Island, is assaulted by the foreboding villain Ommin...

Sonic Colors

11-13-2010

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...

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

11-18-2010

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

11-19-2010

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, ...

Disney Epic Mickey

11-25-2010

Every year, there are one or two high profile 3rd party Wii games that aspire to actually shoot for mainstream acceptance. There are a lot of reasons why these games are so few and far between, not the least of which being ...
