Pokemon Black and White 2
After Black and White, in many aspects their most ambitious game, everyone expected a Pokemon Grey to follow shortly afterwards, but the company decided that after putting so much story in Black and White, it would be better for them to pick up said story and continue it from a new perspective two years later. Unfortunately, the sequels don’t capitalize on this as well as they could have, instead delivering a shallow story with no grey areas and putting in place a series of changes that actually get rid of what made the originals special.
Drawn to Life
In the end Drawn to Life may not be the most impressive all around experience, however it is certainly a unique and fun game to play. It gives a rather simple yet effective approach to to a very enjoyable concept. Some will have more fun playing with the drawing aspect and others will enjoy the game for what it is, either way it’s a fun experience.
To my surprise Touchmaster really did capture what a good compilation is made of. While there are some graphical shortcomings, the overall experience still has what it takes to make for a great game purchase. This is not the next big blockbuster on the DS, but it is one that is surely worth a look.
Star Fox Command
Although not perfect, Star Fox Command is still one of the top games that the DS has seen this year. The visuals could be better and the learning curve for the controls is tough, but putting that to the side this is still a great game that should not be overlooked. Fans of the series or owners of the DS looking for a good solid gaming experience should definitely take a look at this title.
Very few times in the DS short history have we seen games actually use the touch screen to its advantage in the way that this game did. Does it take the DS over the top and make it a worthwhile platform? Not quite but the game does make for a real fun experience that will be enjoyed by fans of the series and new fans as well.
To put this whole thing together, Spider-Man 2 is a game that has the potential to be a great game, but when it all is said and done the game just doesn’t come through like it had the potential to do. Spider-Man 2 just didn’t take advantage of the new hardware and left us with a very average side scrolling action game.
