Astro Boy: Omega Factor – Consumer Guide

Astro Boy: Omega Factor – Review

It's rare to find a handheld game with this much emphasis on narrative (and narrative logic) and Osamu Tezuka's colorful roster of characters are ultimately crowbarred in to good effect.

Mega Man Anniversary Collection – Review

I can't thank Capcom and Atomic Planet enough. They've let me into a world I wasn't developmentally ready for 15 years ago, but which still makes me feel like a kid again.

R-Type Final – Second Opinion

In many ways, R-Type Final is the ultimate shmupper's shmup. It sticks fast to its hardcore traditions even when they are in danger of breaking the game—which they will for the many players who are simply unwilling (or unable) to allow such ruthless, patience-testing gameplay to grow on them.

Mega Man Anniversary Collection

Game Description: The Mega Man Anniversary Collection pays tribute to the brainchild behind this multimillion unit selling franchise, Keiji Inafune, and the original games that he created, said Todd Thorson, director of marketing, Capcom Entertainment. It gives gamers, who have not experienced the Mega Man phenomenon, an opportunity to play the titles that redefined the platform genre. In the Mega Man Anniversary Collection, players will be challenged to see if they have the skills to master some of the most extreme Mega Man titles ever released and to unlock a cache of bonus features that includes 30 minutes of anime, producer interviews, footage from the original TV commercials, and a history of the series.

Metal Slug 3 – Review

It's been a long time since a game made me sweat and gave me the shakes. The last one to do it was the original Ridge Racer, released way back when. Beating the supernatural black Lamborghini in the final course is one of my fondest gaming memories, though I suffered through countless defeats to achieve it. That same feeling of overcoming impossible odds to revel in a satisfying victory has finally been repeated with SNK's shooting masterpiece, Metal Slug 3, and this is a good thing.

According to ESRB, this game contains: Animated Blood, Violence

Metal Slug 3

Game Description: In Metal Slug 3, you must blast armies of soldiers, zombies, and aliens through five different missions of non stop shooting action. The view will periodically shift from a horizontal perspective to a vertical one at different points in the game, and players will be able to enter mechanical vehicles called slugs to help combat enemies or to advance further within the post-apocalyptic levels.

Flipnic: Ultimate Pinball – Review

On paper, pinball sounds like an endurance test of the most banal kind. In practice, however, the game is brought to life by the pings, dings, numbers, lights, and everything else that makes the player feel like they're somehow "winning." It's man and machine in noisy harmony, and it's great. Well, great enough to make us forget we're just flicking a metal ball up a sloped table-top for as long as possible.
