REVIEW: Tetris DS

Now, I own a ton of puzzle games for DS, but usually when I’m in the mood for a puzzle game, I play Break ’em All instead. Thus, any game that is not Break ’em All gets graded down by default. But Tetris DS is probably the next best thing.

REVIEW: Space Invaders Revolution

Since there are enough reviews out there that tell you to run out and buy a game, I thought I’d do a mediocre review on a game you’ll have a hard time finding because I bought the only copy.

Even with all that going for it, this game still failed spectacularly.

Now that I’ve reviewed a game I hated and a game which was good but I was ambivalent about, I can go back to games I loved. I did love this game. The only reason it got a B was because it was insanely hard and I never quite finished it as a result. But it’s an awesome game nonetheless.  note: I finished it since I wrote this.  It’s still awesome.
