The Dark Spire Review

Have fun storming the castle

HIGH Surviving an onslaught of six or so enemies without having any characters die.

LOW Constantly having to create and level new characters because I couldn't afford to revive the ones who'd fallen in battle.

WTF I don't want a game that holds my hand through the experience, but a little explanation about how things work would have been nice...

Dokapon Journey Review

Cute, but deadly

HIGH "All of Tera's towns are so impressed they're giving money!"

LOW Being one space away from a doorway and spinning a two. Then a four. Then a six.

WTF The walking undead should not make me go "Awww!" and want to pinch their cheeks.

Hammerin' Hero Review

In a game like this, everything's a nail

HIGH Crazy levels and tons of charm.

LOW The game's over before you know it.

WTF Get rid of romance problems... by whacking them with a mallet!!

Lit Review

Casting light, though slightly dimmed

HIGH Unique premise, strong visual style.

Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! Review

Kawaii! (means super-cute in Japanese!)

HIGH Hearing my Japanese host mother comment "kawaii!!" after I showed her a level of the game.

LOW Almost doubling the amount of scratches on my touch-screen due to excessive and forceful spinning.

WTF The instance where the Ouendan somehow manage to travel back in time... When Japanese male cheerleaders start inexplicably using time travel to help a distressed Cleopatra, I laugh.
