Puzzle

Crush – Second Opinion

Crush, for all its flaws, is exactly the sort of game that the PSP needs more of. Seeing it in action for the first time is like bearing witness to a magnificent illusion--literally watching the spatial norms I've taken for granted get tossed out a window isn't something I'm going to forget soon.

The Portable Project 11 – Honeycomb Beat Review

An attractive-looking minimalist presentation and a craving for some good puzzle action drew me to Hudson's Honeycomb Beat, and its budget price sealed the deal. Although it started strong and seemed to hold a lot of promise, I'm not quite sure I got my $20 worth—this unorthodox puzzler fizzled out fast.

Crush – Review

Illusions and tricks of the eye have been staples of cinematic entertainment ever since those unwitting Lumière fans thought the train was coming right for them.

Phoenix Wright: Justice For All – Review

Read review of Phoenix Wright: Justice For AllOftentimes, a series can be phenomenal to start, but if the first installment is successful, creators will bleed it dry. My concern when approaching the latest title in the series, Phoenix Wright 2: Justice For All, was its the ability to flesh out characters, story and overall quality. Thankfully, Phoenix Wright: Justice For All manages to do everything right, and for all the right reasons.
