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, even when our sc...   read

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. Some days I play...   read

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 the years. This ...   read

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 simulations where realis...   read

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 guilty admittance ...   read

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 cop with a bee...   read

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 computers or someth...   read

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 "plot driven pl...   read

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 or drawbacks to ...   read

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 this combo of feat...   read

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, mind you. In fac...   read

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 that purpose, but ...   read

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 huge amount of co...   read

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. At first glance...   read

Destructoid review: Plants vs. Zombies

There's one surefire way to amp up the cool factor of pretty much any game on the market, and that's to add zombies. With PopCap's newest offering, Plants vs. Zombies, this winning recipe also adds in green leafy characters fighting on the ...   read

Destructoid review: The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai

It has been over a year since gamers were given the opportunity to check out the XNA Community Games demo and I think it's safe to say that one game clearly outshined all of the competition. The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai was far and away the...   read

Destructoid review: Zeno Clash

The wait is finally over! Zeno Clash is out today, and if what I’ve heard in IRC and the forums is any indication, this game is hotly anticipated. It first entered the world as an obscure and bizarre trailer that confused all who saw ...   read

Destructoid Review: Valkyria Chronicles DLC

Destructoid review: Demigod

As you may have heard, Demigod was released almost a week before the official date by Gamestop. As a result, the folks at Stardock ended up rushing the game out so that everyone who bought it could play it, and so for the first couple of da...   read

Destructoid review: Super Yum Yum 3
