Nintendo Wii Game Review:

We have not had this much fun with a video game in a long time. A true family and/or party game, playing WarioWare: Smooth Moves actually works up a sweat and elicits endless giggles. It's quirky, no doubt, and stays true to the WarioWare series. However, with the unique technology of the Nintendo Wii, Smooth Moves involves active and interactive participation.

PSP Game Review:

Sims 2: Castaway is a refreshing take on the Sims franchise, and fun both on its own merits and when compared to more traditional Sims strategy games. Despite the flaws in the system, and a lack of depth, Sims 2: Castaway earns four out of five stars for fantastic game play. Sims 2: Castaway for the PSP Game Review

Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo 3DS has some snazzy graphics. Here are our thoughts, praises, and nitpicks.

Nintendo DSi: To Upgrade, or Not to Upgrade?

 Nintendo DSi: Features

Nintendo DS Game Review:

Now kids can play Guitar Hero on the small screen with Guitar Hero on Tour for the DS.  Guitar Hero on Tour for the DS Game Review

Nintendo Wii Game Review:

Now widely available after a shortage, the Nintendo Wii Guitar Hero III bundle comes with a wireless guitar controller that allows players to "thrash" their way through games. Big warning here: although the musical elements are strong, the themes are quite "mature" if you want to call it that.  Guitar Hero 3 Legends of Rock for the Wii Game Review

Nintendo Wii Game Review:

The delivery of Big Brain Academy, essentially a sequel to the handheld Nintendo games for the Wii, is simple yet appealing as a family or party game. It's not going to truly build young brains, but children are required to think as they play. Big Brain Academy for the Wii Game Review
