Everything is better with puppies and kittens. Hell, puppies and kittens are better with more puppies and kittens. It’s a popular scientific theory. What Sims 2 Apartment Pets wants to do is challenge this school of thought. Are the little critters this boring in real life?
Card Fighters DS is a hard sell - to just about anyone besides the hardcore fans of the original Neo Geo Pocket Color game. It's a collectible trading card game, filled with the (mostly) obscure characters from the SNK and Capcom lineups of years past. Wait, come back!
What's particularly perplexing about this sequel, though, is just how far it strays from the winning formula of the original in a misguided attempt to try and make it relevant - to not just the sort of hardcore fans who still
That faraway shrill? The collective squeal from the 17 people worldwide who plumped for the Neo Geo Pocket F1 in the midst of Pokemania in 1999. For these unorthodox fellows, Card Fighters was their Mecca, but this DS re-imagining is destined to disappoint.
Back when Snowboard Kids showed up on the game-starved N64, it had a certain charm that outweighed its most obvious flaws. Yes, it was the slowest racing game we'd ever seen, and no, it wasn't the prettiest.
The characters were a bunch of cartoon 10-year-olds and after the halfway mark, when the game's designers must have got tired of drawing snowy mountains, your pre-teen snowboard genius would be sliding over green meadows, sandy deserts, and cherry blossom-strewn Japanese lanes. Snowboard

XSEED has localized a spirited game with enough spunk to make even the most
jaded gamer crack a grin...
Nintendo evidently liked GameCube title Baten Kaitos enough to splash a large wad of cash on acquiring the company that made it, and here’s the first game from the newly first-party Monolith Soft.Soma Bringer is an action RPG that’s very much like Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, except with added layers of complexity and even more ways to customize your character. Set in a series of sprawling, monster-packed dungeons, the aim is
When BioWare announced that they had been charged with crafting a Sonic RPG by Sega, eyebrows across the gaming universe shot up. After all, it was just about the most bizarre love affair since the dirty Blue Bomber himself got it on with the human Princess Elise in Sonic the Hedgehog (2006).
The entire Sonic collection on a cartridge the size of a special edition Christmas stamp… If we could go back in time and tell ourselves we’d be playing this on a full-colour dual-screen handheld, in the year 2010, we’d have been amazed. Surely it’s not going to take the best part of 20 years for the rest of the world to realise that Sonic is actually a load of old pants…
At least some people realize how to make this franchise work. After way too many lackluster 3D adventure games, Sonic Rush returns the series to its side-scrolling glory days by focusing on speed. The levels are designed to rocket you forward as fast as possible at all times, and even with recognizable areas like a giant casino, lush green forest and a floating airship, theyre crazy enough you'll forgive the

Your first clue should be in the name; not Sonic Rush 2, but Sonic Rush Adventure. You already know what this means - so let's give a warm welcome to the return of all that extracurricular nonsense. As the (flimsy) story goes, Sonic and Tails smash-land their plane into a strange airborne structure and find themselves marooned on a tropical archipelago. There, they bump into a new pal, Marine the Racoon, and, inevitably, Blaze the Charisma-Free Cat. Our heroes club together to
