Excerpt: Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman. When Samus Aran was unveiled as female, it was a revelation from the testosterone-heavy action men that were infesting video-games in the 1980’s. Samus struck a blow for women’s rights in the living rooms and bedrooms of teenage gamers across the world.
Conclusion: I’ve praised the game’s controls in past articles, and the final version has only strengthened my opinion that Corruption’s Wiimote-pointer shooting is a near-perfect scheme for first-person games.
Conclusion: Whether you believe it or not, there are very few games that are truly worth six dollars, and beyond a shadow of a doubt, Rotohex is one of them. The game’s unique concept bundled with its very modern look results in a very stylish and trendy game.
Conclusion: Many have disregarded the Wii, as it is lacking in the power department. Games like de Blob prove however that with an original, unique, and fun concept you can have an amazing game despite technical limitations. It’s not without its flaws, but this game is not one to be missed.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is the third first-person shooter in the Metroid series of classic games. The motion control system provides a more immersive experience as players use the Wii remote to shoot.
Excerpt: If for some bizarre reason you thought Retro Studios would pull a Sam Raimi and ruin the entire Prime series with its trilogy closer, then think again. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption is an excellent continuation of the series that propelled Samus into the 3D realm five years prior. Surprised?
Conclusion: The game has no multi-player mode but the single-player plot is thrilling and challenging. The heroine, bounty hunter Samus, is up against her evil twin (dark Samus) and spends most of her time exploring and puzzle-solving.
Excerpt: Back in 2002, many skeptics were afraid that bringing Metroid into the third dimension could be a disastrous thing. I was one of those skeptics. Being the old-school gamer that I am, my list of all-time favorite games is largely comprised of classics from the SNES era.
