Conclusion: Did you like that tale of horror from Left 4 Dead? If you did, get your hands on this game as fast as you can because your own zombie-infested nightmares are waiting for you. Left 4 Dead isn't a game, but a sweat-soaked survival experience of zombie apocalypse proportions!
Pros: Addictive co-op multiplayer; great in-game dialogue; zombies; guns to kill the zombies!
Cons: Only ships with four movies with Versus mode limited to only two movies.
Conclusion: While this is by no means the greatest game you will ever play, it is one of the best pastimes available for any system---and the fact that it is portable means you can kill time anywhere. As long as you are not expecting a traditional Pokemon game, Mystery Dungeon delivers.
Pros: Lots of surprises; good replay value.
Cons: Some difficulty issues; plain sound effects.
Excerpt: It’s been almost 17 months since a new Pokemon game came out. Pokemon Emerald, that last game, wasn’t an all-new adventure but it featured a few new touches to the same old Pokemon formula, and that kept fans playing the game. So much time has passed and Pokemon fans like me were left wondering when they’d be able to feed that Pokemon craving.
Pros: Story is well written and can easily consume 20 hours, No shortage of rescue missions to attempt, Interesting connectivity options between the two versions
Cons: Simplistic dungeon hack with Pokémon characters slapped on, Dungeons recycle the same background tiles and enemies, Random dungeon layouts don't always turn out sensibly, Nothing to do in the overworld except shop and save
Excerpt: Any Pokémon fan worth their salt knows all about the core, 'proper' Pokémon games. We're talking about the likes of FireRed and LeafGreen, Gold and Silver, and Ruby and Sapphire. With the next 'proper RPG' Pokémon game still a considerable way off, fans of the competitive critters are left to look elsewhere. Poké-nuts will have to make do with the release of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, a warm-up to the main event.
