“Sonic! He can really move! Sonic! He’s got an attitude! Sonic, he’s the fastest thing aliiiiive!” I can’t remember the last Sonic game that could be accurately described by those lyrics. Most Sonic the Hedgehog games nowadays are strangled with gimmicks, be it swords or werehogs, you can be sure they’ll throw something in there that will more than likely ruin the game for you. As compared to its predecessors, Sonic Rush contains one key difference, Sonic Rush is good.

Scrap that last sentence, Sonic Rush is GREAT. Anyone who thought that the Sonic franchise died with the Genesis can now proceed to eat their words. This game is proof that SEGA has the potential to bring Sonic back from the brink, before he becomes a distant memory in the hearts of gamers.

With the recent release of Prince Of Persia on the PS3 and XBOX 360, we all fully expected some sort of loosely made port to the DS or PSP. And for better or worse, we got one for the DS. The Fallen King is a 3rd person action adventure developed by Ubisoft Casablanca, it’s an official spin-off to the Prince Of Persia game now running in your consoles. Prince Of Persia: The Fallen King allows you to play as the new Prince on a new journey, and once again, he’s not alone. I guess it’s time to fight Ahriman again… dammit…

Does anyone remember Legend of Dragoon, that old game on the original Playstation that was heralded as “The Final Fantasy 7 Killer?” It was almost as if Legend of Dragoon saw exactly what Final Fantasy 7 did with its story, but failed to understand what made the individual points of FF7′s plot any good. This is exactly the same feeling I got when I played Suikoden Tierkreis: a game that goes through the motions of Suikoden games without understanding how to pull them off in a way that has any significance. What’s peculiar about this, though, is that Suikoden Tierkreis is not a cheap knock-off – it’s a genuine Suikoden game!

I am not usually one to love branded consoles, but when the words Ace Attorney are associated with said branding, well then my ears perk up. With the release of the latest Ace Attorney game, Gyakuten Kenji, Capcom and Nintendo are releasing a ‘premium’ DSi. The unit will debut for ¥23,940 (USD$240) and come with a copy of the game.

dsiwareWith the release of Nintendo’s DSi only days away, the company has released information regarding the games that will be available for download on day one.  Reading Nintendo’s descriptions of the new DSiWare games, they sound like rehashes of existing properties (Brain Age, WarioWare), but simply make the jump and you can be the judge.

Zoo Keeper is a wacky puzzle game developed by Success, it was first released on the GBA in 2003, due it its success a PS2 game was made in 2004. However in 2005 the original game was ported to the Nintendo DS. Zoo Keeper is a shameless clone of Popcap Games Bejeweled, except it exchanges Gems for retarded looking animals, throws some new modes into the mix, and adds a level of quirkiness to the game. Hit the jump to find out more.

Magnetica is a puzzle game developed by Mitchell Corporation for the Nintendo DS as part of the Touch! Generations series. In Europe Magnetica is called Actionloop. Magnetica has a counterpart on WiiWare, called Magnetica/Actionloop Twist. If you have ever played a PopCap game, you’ll instantly recognise Magnetica as a Zuma copycat.

Peanut butter and jelly is a combination that truly baffles me. Almost everyone I’ve known loves to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. How is it that two average tastes came together to create such a delightful treat? I was equally vexed when I heard that EA’s (of all companies) latest handheld title was going to mix the puzzle and platformer genres. I knew that Puzzle Quest created an addictive and unique experience, but I speculated that mixing platforming and puzzles would lead to disastrous results. Boy was I wrong. Read more… »

It seems The Legend of Zelda series has finally moved out of the age of chivalry and is finally edging its way closer to a more modern day aesthetic.  Instead of drifting romantically across the ocean or grazing the fields atop your trusty steed, the hero of Hyrule is taking the “Eye of Sauron” approach and is instead plowing through the untraveled fields of (presumably) Hyrule.  Also in this Zelda, expect child labor, depression, and eventually contact with a world outside of Hyrule.  That last one is actually still up for debate.

A brand new Zelda game is coming, and it’s on the Nintendo DS. Those of you who expected the announcement of a new Zelda title were very correct. Because The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks is coming. And it looks good.

Kirby: Canvas Curse, known in Europe as Kirby: Power Paintbrush, is an extremely innovative game for the Nintendo DS. Kirby makes a triumphant return to the platforming genre with a game that’s sure to knock your socks off. However, while Canvas Curse is a platformer, it does not play like traditional Kirby games; it only uses the stylus.

If you can excuse the annoying background (why did they make a moving background!?) to the trailer it does make for an interesting gameplay video, shown in the trailer is how you go about collecting goods and delivering, and it looks like they have actually made it use the DS mechanics properly.
