Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow – Second Opinion

The GBA games were high-quality titles, and on the DS, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is no exception. I definitely agree with Brad in this regard. Yet, for all the quality of the work, I feel Castlevania has finally—for now—run out of steam.

Gunstar Super Heroes

Game Description: Gunstar Super Heroes is 2D action and adventure done right. The Gunstar world expands with all-new levels, bosses, and weapons. Take characters, Blue and Red, on different paths to reveal an incredible adventure story. Precision gunplay and brilliant visuals, and all-new levels, bosses, and weapons.

Gunstar Super Heroes – Review

Almost every boss—as ever, the beating heart of a Treasure level—is recycled from GH. Players keep expecting some kind of pay-off for those of us willing to accept these throwbacks as 'knowing references', but it doesn't come, and they're not. They're insipid and annoying regurgitations.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow – Review

The latest entry, Dawn of Sorrow, comes courtesy of the Nintendo DS. For those not familiar with the games (what, all four of you?) the action consists of taking the current main character, Soma Cruz, and exploring a large, intricate castle. Along the way, Soma collects various weapons and items, steadily gaining in strength and ability. Presented in glorious 2D, its colorful and attractive graphics are a good match for the handheld.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

Game Description: Continuing the storyline from the critically-acclaimed Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow follows Soma Cruz who finds himself at the center of a mysterious cult's plan to resurrect their evil lord and master, Dracula. Players will find themselves in the role of Soma, the game's protagonist, as they infiltrate the enemy's lair, a towering replica of Dracula's castle, and battle against gruesome creatures and the franchise's signature oversized bosses. Drawing inspiration from the past Castlevania titles and their role playing roots, players can, through an enhanced Tactical Soul System, collect more souls than ever before to upgrade abilities and skills. Completing this compelling gaming experience are its stunning graphics, special effects as well as an all-new musical score.

Sonic Gems Collection – Review

Sonic Gems Collection basically dares its audience to ask one question: does merely being old qualify a game for 'classic' status, or did the game have to be good in the first place? Sonic Gems offers three previously unrereleased Sonic games, as well as eight other 'bonus' titles, bringing the grand total up to 11. This shotgun approach is actually the secret of the title's success, because while the three marquee titles are a bit of a letdown, a few of the lesser titles are interesting and fun enough to make the game worthy of a look.
