It follows the exact same formula of the last three Layton games, where a variety of brain teasers and puzzles are scattered throughout a point-and-click adventure story. In the case of Professor Layton though, saying The Last Specter is "more of the same" could actually be taken as a compliment... </p> Mon, 17 Oct 2011 15:28:17 -0700http://www.gamesradar.com/professor-layton-and-the-last-specter-review/Kirby: Canvas Cursehttp://www.gamesradar.com/kirby-canvas-curse-review/Plenty of DS titles, even original ones, barely make use of the hardware's unique features. This is not the case with Kirby Canvas Curse. The player uses the stylus to draw ramps onscreen. These ramps guide the now limbless puffball around expansive levels in search of power-ups and secret items, completely free of the D-pad or other conventional methods of input. You never directly control Kirby; he merely reacts to the paths you draw on the screen.

Of course, it has the ultra-deep battle mechanics that Pokemon is known for, coupled with the series' most beautiful graphics and sound to date. And with a new region and now over 600 Pokemon to collect and train, there's more content in B&amp;W than in most (practically all) full console games. No doubt, Pokemon B&amp;W is absolutely a fantastic game. If it were the first entry in the series, instead of a game built upon the shoulders of its predecessors, it would be the easiest 10/10 to award...</p> Fri, 04 Mar 2011 18:00:21 -0800http://www.gamesradar.com/pokemon-black-white-review/Pokemon Conquest reviewhttp://www.gamesradar.com/pokemon-conquest-review/<p> <a href="http://www.gamesradar.com/pokemon-conquest-review/"><span class="cms_image "><img src="http://3ebd2a0c0ea48a333aea-1f531def8e8befb67be56667ce3edd11.r77.cf1.rackcdn.com/e491ca0017b95119614ab7648e53be1af014e6d0.jpg__620x250_q85_crop_upscale.jpg"/></span></a> </p><p>Pokemon finally takes on the strategy genre and the results almost completely fulfilled its potential.

Wire-free online play aside, Mario Kart DS gets so much right it's untrue. So much in fact that it's easy to forgive the fact that many of those irritating classic Mario Kart quirks have reared their ugly heads on to DS.Let's start with these quirks to get them out of the way. 50cc mode is still painfully slow and dull as ditchwater - it was true in Double Dash and the same applies here.

Sure, theyve got the family name, but not the gameplay or the addictive quality. Kiss those hack jobs goodbye: Tony Hawks American Sk8land for Nintendo DS has the same gravity-defying move sets and over-the-top objectives likes as its bigger brother, even if its still clearly the baby of the family.
