I have been wanting to write a new review for the Negative World for quite some time now. I have posted a few reviews of mine on the site, but they were all written back before we set up the review functionality here. I think my most recent review was for Resident Evil 4; not the Wii edition, the Gamecube game. As you can see, it has been awhile. And it was a tough decision choosing which game to use to break my born again review virginity with. Although there are recent games which I think are superior to Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Super Mario Galaxy 2, for instance), when all is said and done, I decided to choose a game that deserves to have more attention called to it than it has received...

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future being the third game in the Professor Layton series, chances are you already know what to expect from it, but just in case someone reading this somehow doesn’t know what these games are about: you play as Professor Layton and his self-appointed assistant Luke in what looks like an old-school point-and-click adventure game. You explore different environments and tap the screen to engage in dialogue with characters or find puzzles. But instead of the usual “use breath mint on grog” puzzles in those games, you solve the type of riddles that you could find in a book of brain-teasers. The resulting combination of mystery, humor and brain-teasers is a surprisingly effective one... (more)

NINJA KARAKURI DEN is one of the rare few action games on DSiware available for 200pts. You control a ninja who constantly jumps automatically, and whatever platform he lands on falls. You make your way through single-screen levels in which you have to destroy all of the gears on screen to make the exit appear. Every 4th level has you face another ninja, and every 5th level is free of enemies, you simply collect coins for points... (more)

So I had an Amazon promotional credit that was about to expire, and I had been genuinely curious about LEGO Rock Band on DS even though I already owned it on Wii. I'm a huge fan of the rhythm/music genre, so I had to give this a try... (more)

Let’s Catch is far from a definite recommendation to anyone, but it is pretty interesting and original, perhaps not in terms of gameplay but certainly in concept... (more)

In My Life as a Darklord, you get to play a Final Fantasy defending herself against the stream of would-be heroes assaulting her tower. It falls under the "tower defense" genre, which I am not overly fond of, but MLAADL has made me a believer. It offers a more streamlined experience than most of the other games in that genre I've played, taking out the guesswork and the experimentation and making it more about strategy. When you fail, you can usually point out exactly what you did wrong, and succeed on the second try... (more)

The release of Cho Aniki on the Virtual Console is the first time this PC-Engine side-scrolling shoot’em-up is available for purchase outside of Japan. I remember reading about it nearly 20 years ago now in EGM and raising an eyebrow given the game’s subject matter: big muscled men... (more)

The easiest way to describe Dive: The Medes Islands Secret would be to call it a side-scrolling Endless Ocean, but it is not quite accurate. Just like in Endless Ocean, you are a diver scouring the floor of the ocean looking for treasure, but whereas Endless Ocean removed any danger element and makes for a tranquil experience, exploring the seas in Dive is definitely a more hazardous and challenging affair...

This game is a prime example of what a WiiWare title should be. Given its huge limitations, titles on the service should not try to emulate full retail releases, but rather be simple, original and straight-up fun concepts executed well. Take a game like Jett Rocket for example. While it is a great game, in the end it just makes you wish it were a retail game so it could look better, last longer, and be overall bigger... (more)
