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...

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 a prime priori...

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...

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 ...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...

Destructoid review: Burn Zombie Burn

Zombies are great, aren't they? Damn right they are. As enemies of humanity they are persistent, deadly and singularly driven to accomplish their goals. As mirrors into the soul of mankind, they are unmatched in the history of supernatural...

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 ...

Destructoid Review: Valkyria Chronicles DLC

There are two kinds of PS3 owners in the world: those who have bought Valkyria Chronicles, and the ignorant majority who know not of the remarkably action/strategy/RPG combo we here at Destructoid think quite fondly of. If you're in the sec...

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...

Destructoid review: Super Yum Yum 3

While some gamers pile scorn on the casual gaming market, I've long since pulled the stick out of my ass and left that attitude behind as the right type of game in this genre can totally win my heart (cough PopCap cough). I've found a few o...

Destructoid review: TNA Wrestling

A few years ago, my friends and I would have huge wrestling game parties thanks to the long line of absolutely rockin’ Nintendo 64 titles. We’d stay up all night, giggling like little girls while we smashed each other through ta...

In Everybodys Golf, I always get the two button prompt, instead of three, regardless of whether or not I have auto-impact Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

 
CaimDark Reloaded

When you own multiple gaming platforms, do you feel a weird sense of guilt when you ignore one of them for a long time? I I know, it makes no sense, but I cant help but feel I have to justify the investment
