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.

Animaniacs: Lights, Camera, Action! – Review

Animaniacs: Lights, Camera, Action!, you are utter crap. This is not the kind of thing I say lightly. Animaniacs has been one of my favorite shows since junior high, and I was excited to see the Warner brothers—and the Warner sister—back out of their tower after all these years. I wasn't expecting greatness, but mediocrity would've been nice.

Nanostray – Review

Shooters—what's not to like? Taking control of spaceships or airplanes (or sometimes just people flying in the sky) and blasting the hell out of everything that moves is just a good time. Unfortunately, the genre's releases have dwindled to the point that each new game that lands on a shelf is a cause to celebrate for those who appreciate the hyperkinetic reflex action. The first such game to hit the Nintendo DS, Nanostray, is a welcome arrival that mostly holds its own, though it doesn't break any new ground.
