Some say that The Last Story is an appropriate title for Mistwalker's Japanese role-playing game. After all, it's coming during the twilight hours of the Wii's lifecycle. Is it an appropriate swan song for Nintendo's blockbuster console?
it's generally inadvisable to purchase a game sight unseen without checking
reviews first, but if there's any series that merits complete trust based on
its track record, it's Zelda. So it's no surprise that The Legend of Zelda:
Skyward Sword is a must-play not only for all Zelda fans, but all Wii owners in
general. In nearly every way, it upholds the high standard of the series and is
a worthy entry to mark Zelda's 25th anniversary...
If you want to get technical, we've been waiting for this game since 2000, when Nintendo teased the world with video of an "adult" Link and Gannondorf squaring off in a life-or-death duel. Since that time, we've seen spin offs and cel-shaded cartoon visions of Zelda, but nothing rivaling the intensity of Ocarina of Time. Well, Princess has absolutely, without a doubt, been worth the wait. It's the culmination of everything Zelda, perfected and tweaked so there's practically nothing to bring the
If you have
played any of the other LEGO games you already know what to expect with LEGO
Harry Potter: Years 5-7. Set in the LEGOfied wizarding world, the newest
iteration never delivers on moving the series beyond what has already been
done, but it does provide solid gameplay, plenty of fan service, and the charm
the LEGO games have become known for...
So, a real baseball or a digitised one? It’s really a question of circumstance. A sunny park and a few mates and you’ve got yourself a catch on. But what of rainy days? Or the friendless? Or those banned from public places after that misunderstanding with the dog last March? Developer Prope’s buoyant catch-’em-up is a year-round remedy for a grumpy face.
Train love is disconcerting at the best of times. Admiring steam engines with their majestic plumes of smoke puffing through rustic vistas is just about understandable, but it takes a real sick cookie to get enjoyment out of the Japanese bullet trains ripping through mile after mile of cold, empty tunnel. So with this latest installment of the popular Densha de Go! arcade train experience focusing on the Sanyo Shinkansen, the bullet train from Osaka to Fukuota, its with some degree of
It’s a good sign when a game controlled with finger taps has music we’d happily tap our fingers to. Yes, Let’s Tap’s big ‘thing’ is the fact that it’s a game played with a single finger. On a technical level it works.

Crossbow Training is a very simple lightgun game wrapped in the trappings of Zelda; it recycles its levels and enemies, ripping its graphics, settings and music from Twilight Princess. That particular rendition of Hyrule is one with which almost every Wii owner is familiar with so its with warmth in your heart youll re-enter Links world, this time blasting your way through the towns and villages with a semi-automatic
WiiWare survival horror, eh? Stranded in a school (sounds scary already) with all the lights off, Jake’s dropped into the Lit world with no backstory or tutorial. Luckily, it’s easy to pick up.

Put it next to the hyperbolically monikered brutes it’ll be sharing shelf space with – Madworld, Overkill, Chop Til You Drop – and it may as well be called ‘Don’t Worry About Me’ or ‘Sorry.
