Side-Scrolling in Style

HIGH Realizing that I was good enough to finish on Normal after my initial stumblings.

LOW I don't like straining to see my character in a sea of enemies.

WTF My first Hard Mode attempt lasted a minute—literally.

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor Second Opinion

A Masterclass in Mayhem

HIGH Finding yourself overwhelmed by giant bubbles in the underwater stage, then realizing you can turn them into missiles by hitting them with your sword to unleash all kinds of destruction.

LOW Playing the so-called "2 Player" mode with a friend for the first time expecting chaos of the highest order, only to discover that the second player really doesn't get to play at all.

WTF When a boss rips off a piece of itself, dribbles it like a basketball, and then throws it at you like you're its own personal bowling pin, you know you're playing a Treasure game.

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor Review

Virtue and Reward

HIGH The Lovecraftian transformations of Armon Ritter.

LOW The painfully sluggish sword fight against Hibaru Yaju.

WTF So, the hideous bird-lion boss is our new best friend?

Bangai-O Spirits Review

Calling something ‘hardcore' doesn't prevent it from sucking

Read review of Bangai-O Spirits

HIGH Having a robot for a main character is always a perk.

LOW Everything else.

WTF The utter lack of a difficulty curve: it's all just this side of infuriating.

Bangai-O Spirits

Game Description: In this DS remake of the classic Bangai-O, you take the roles of Riki and Mami and strap into the powerful Bangai-O suit to undertake the task of catching criminals red-handed. Bangai-O Spirits provides gamers with shooter gameplay and punishing supermoves, along with strategic and tactical elements. The game also offers co-op, competitive multiplayerfor 1-4 players via local wireless, and a powerful level editor tool which allows players to edit in-game levels or create new ones from scratch.

Oh! Bangai-O!

Gagh! I close and my eyes and still see little bink bursts of bullets flying in geometrical patterns...

Gunstar Super Heroes – Second Opinion

Comparing Gunstar Super Heroes to We Love Katamari doesn't make much sense to me. They are both cash-in sequels that rehash their originals, but I think there's a big difference between a rehash that comes out 12 months later and one that comes out 12 years later.
