Robot Alchemic Drive – Consumer Guide

Robot Alchemic Drive – Review

There have been "Big Robot" games available as long as there have been consoles, but we've had a real bumper crop this year. I'm certainly not complaining, but the games in this genre typically share a number of traits, and with so many released in such a short time, it only magnifies their similarities. Don't get me wrong; I'm definitely a fan, but a greater amount of variety and divergence is needed.

Cubivore Review

Nintendo's conservative corporate strategy with regard to licensing games is notorious, but they seem to have re-learned the lesson of "diversity" after the less-than-stellar performance of the Nintendo 64. Its thin selection outside the cash-cow franchises was criminal, and they must be acutely aware of it. For proof, look no further than Saru Brunei's Cubivore.

Cubivore

Game Description:  Assume the role of an animal in its early stages of development. But, in the harsh reality of nature, this creature has no parent to coddle and protect it. From the moment the game begins, your creature is on its own to fend for its life. As your animal instincts take over, you will boldly traverse hostile environments, savagely stalking your prey and asserting your place in the animal chain of power.

Animal Crossing – Second Opinion

In Thom's review above, he touched upon the fact that Animal Crossing is structured to be played for about an hour or two instead of the longer, sometimes marathon sessions that other games inspire. This type of slower, more leisurely game design is a very new way of thinking in our field, but seems to be establishing a firm foothold.

Animal Crossing – Review

Anyone expecting bosses and bonus levels should be warned, as Animal Crossing is best described as a simulation of life in a small rural village. But it has many aspects that separate it from the simulation games that we are used to seeing and which make the game a unique experience. Uniqueness is not a good enough reason to play a game, however. Luckily, Animal Crossing is not merely unique, but also highly addictive and entertaining.

Pikmin – Review

Pikmin may look cute and cartoon-y, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a game with gameplay as engaging.
