Excerpt: Nintendo released the DS promising innovation. Many games, including ones released by third parties, have delivered on that promise. Others have fallen way short using touch-screen controls even when it would be better to use the d-pad or face buttons, using the second screen for a map or throwing together a compilation of poorly designed mini-games. Mister Slime tries to stand out. Does it deliver the goods?
Excerpt: Imagine if all the videogame characters ever created had a party, shindig, get-together, ho-down or any other number of ways to reference a good time out. Now imagine if at this party there were lots of tables, and characters chose and sat next to whomever they wanted. You might see the bubbly and equally drunk Mario and Lugi entertaining Daxter, Guybrush Threepwood and Sonic with their unique rendition of ‘My Endless Love’.
