REVIEW – Escape the Virus: Swarm Survival (DSiWare/eShop)

Needs a Biology Lesson – For just a couple of bucks, Swarm Survival is an easy-to-play different take on the classic Snake style of gameplay.

REVIEW – Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 Review (Xbox 360)

New Engine. Detailed Gameplay. Lacking Features. – With a new graphics engine and years of experience, PES 2014 gets straight to the point.

Like Pokemon Snap, the game controls the player’s path and …

REVIEW – Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D (3DS eShop)

The Title Is the Best Thing About This Game – With only one stage that repeats without any variation and a short time limit, Crazy Chicken: Pirates 3D is a one dimensional and pretty terrible shooting gallery downloadable eShop game even for the cheap $1.99 price point. But at least the name makes the game …

You Shall Not Pass – Holding the 3DS/DSi hardware vertically like a book, Wizard Defenders is a tower defense style game sort of similar to a real time Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes. It’s not bad for a $1.99 downloadable title but the sharp difficulty spikes and overall lacking presentation brings down the entire …
