    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

    Sonic 4 does a fantastic job of recreating the retro Sonic experience that defined many a childhood, but ironically this could be considered its biggest shortcoming. The title screen sets the precedent. Sonic poses behind... more

    de Blob 2: The Underground

    It's children that will inevitably get the most from the experience, but like a Pixar film or any good cartoon, Blue Tongue Entertainment has created a game that appeals on two levels. Thinking about it, I probably should... more

    Mega Man 9

    Mega Man 9 is the hardest game we've ever played. And the fans will love it. I'm sure Mega Man, the cult NES 2D action platformer, wasn't this hard back in the day. I remember actually enjoying Mega Man 2 and 3 in the early... more
