Red Steel 2 is a game that had to compete with it's older clumsy brother, Red Steel, while Red Steel is not a bad game it's sword play mechanics left much to be desired, Red Steel 2 steps up and is a massive improvement, the sword play is much more fluid you do a left, the cowboy samurai will swing his Katana to the left, you swing to the right, he swings to the right, the controls are a bit stiff but it has not a lot of bearing on the game itself. The town looks desolated thanks to somehow the cowboy samurai clan has been massacred and you are the only survivor, the story starts with our mostly silent hero being dragged through the ground by a crazy band leader eventually he manages to free one of his hands and get his trusty revolver, which you can proceed to use and shoot him so his motorcycle blows up hollywood style, you proceed then to shoot every mook in your path to get out and get your friggin sword back, which is not until later so Jian AKA grumpy sensei lets your borrow his. Sadly this is...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the ridiculously delayed third iteration of the beloved series made its way to the Wii in March of 2008, and to almost universally positive ratings. This critical acclaim came from its tier towards the casual gamer who had never experienced a Super Smash Bros. game before; that meant toning down the speed and fun of Melee to a slower pace for people less familiarized with Smash Bros. Given I was raised on Melee (but I've played all three games), I was so used to the super-fast pace of the game, and was able to plow through the game pretty fast getting all of those characters and stages. But here, it was a lot more time consuming just to unlock all the characters, mainly 'cause to unlock all the characters (SPOILER ALERT TO ANYONE WHO HASN'T PLAYED THE GAME), all you need to do is play through the entirety of the Adventure Mode (the SubSpace Emissary). But to unlock all the stages, you need to complete challenges programmed in; complete a certain challenge, and a window will break...
As I am typing this up, my sister and I are playing this game together. Say what you will about this game not being like the older Mario Parties, but it is so much fun to play with your friends and family. So you start this game in the shining Toad Road. Nothing noteworthy really happens in this stage, It is actually rare to land on a minigame space. There is a boss battle at the middle, and ending of each stage. Most of them are creative, I do wish that one of the stages has both of them being luck-based. The only "good" thing about a luck-based stage or minigame is watch your friend's mini stars go down in a flash. It is... satisfying to watch it. Online play would have been an amazing feature, or at least play with Friend Codes. You can know that the people you're playing with won't rage quit or disconnect. However, I can see why Mario Party is meant to be played in the comfort of your home. About the roster of this game. Most of the choices are pretty good. With the ever-popular Mario, Luigi,...
The game consists of Spiderman, who has the ability to swing around the city of Manhattan. In this game, he gets the ability to switch onto the Black Suit, which is a Symbiotic suit obtained from Venom, a character in the game and the series. Spiderman gets the ability to battle on the ground, on the walls of buildings, and the air. The Black, Symbiotic suit of Spiderman is powerful and destructive whereas the Red-Blue suit is weak, though fast and agile, suitable for weak enemies. You get a special move, called the Web Strike, which is a pretty interesting move, and is sometimes required to use in certain battles. The Graphics are pretty detailed, and are stunning to look at. During the Symbiotic wave, black tendrils are creeping out from the sewer lids, and on buildings, and they give you the creeps, when you look at them closely, due to the graphic detail. There are a few Easter Eggs in the game that I managed to find out, such as the Activision and Marvel posters around the city. The voice...
Ready for some exercise? When my children here that, they groan. They say they want to do something fun. Well, Wii Sports does that all. Wii Sports gives your children and friends exercise, let's them be better at sports, and lets them have the ability to have fun at the same exact time! This is an appropriate game for any age, (but teens might not like it, they like Call of Duty and Halo better). This game is flawless in every way. Oh wait, I should tell you what the games about and stuff like that, shouldn't I? To play, you can create your own Mii which is like your account. You can decide how your Mii looks and all that. Then you can select a sport to play. There is a variety of sports, they have Tennis, Baseball, Bowling, Golf, and Boxing. Choose your favorite! To play Tennis is simple (like all of the sports). You automatically move. All you have to do is when the Tennis ball comes toward you, pretend your Wii controller is a Tennis racket and swing your Wii controller. To serve, swing the...
I have been a huge fan of Super Smash Bros. since 2004, and this one is by FAR my favorite. There are so many characters and stages to choose from! And there's a hidden character, Zero-Suit Samus! The final smash ball is the best item because every character uses it in a unique way! Like Zelda's light arrows, peach's peach blossom, or Pokemon Trainer's triple finish! This game is a must have for all fans of the series! There are even more modes to choose from! Pick classic if you enjoy the regular battles! Or Sub-Space Emmisary if you enjoyed adventure from melee! Or unlock all-star mode and work with a partner to beat every character! Don't forget all of the trophies you can unlock! Don't forget the new music discs too. The new Create-a-stage option is super fun for someone like me who loves customization! You can even unlock new parts to build the coolest stage yet! Then pick a song disc from multiple games like classic Mario music, the legend of Zelda's songs, and much more! With all the new items,...
Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the third installment of Nintendo and Sora's highly anticipated fighting series, featuring Nintendo and other third party characters duking it out on crazy stages from every Nintendo franchise After the massive success Melee had during it's lifespan, Brawl had to offer something even bigger, something more impressive and thus something more fun than it's predecessor. Did Masahiro Sakurai accomplish this goal? Gameplay Let's focus on the primary aspect that we all want to know when a new Smash game comes out - it's gameplay. This has sparked quite a few debates in the Smash community, since Brawl's gameplay is noticeably much slower and floatier than Melee. People who are used to Melee might be a little disappointed in this game, as Brawl simply does not deliver the goods when it comes to making it a 'proper fighting game'. However, the game itself respects the series' genre and unique playing style - the game's basics remain what Smash is all about, a fighting game...
One major flaw. However, a chain is only as strong as it's weakest Link.

Here's some disclaimers first: > I don't much like motion control. It's a brilliant idea for mini games (ie, Wii Sports Resort), but basing a whole game on it wan't such a great idea. I'll get more into this later. > I am a die-hard Zelda fan. I've beaten and generally loved every Zelda game as soon as I could get my hands on them (this includes the infamous Zelda II). I'll get into the goods of this game first. This game had the potential to be the best Zelda game yet, with a plethora of risky new features that simply printed gaming joy. The story, which even before seeing the official timeline, obviously set itself up to be the first in a series, and Ghirahim's placement of monsters throughout Hyrule is an excellent explanation as to the state of Hyrule in future games. I found all of the characters to be likable to an extent (Groose was pretty awesome in his own right), and none of them seemed to be created for the sake of adding new characters. The addition of Beedle and how Beedle had a pet...
