Gamertell Review: Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Apr 8, 2010 at 11:04 AM

The drive to discover new locations—coupled with the desire to give Seto some lasting happiness—kept me going when combat/control frustration would’ve otherwise set in with Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon. This will sound dorky, so I apologize, but looking back at the game it really does sort of… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Red Steel 2 for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Mar 24, 2010 at 10:47 AM

Red Steel 2 is full of style. It’s a western with motorcycles, trucks, swords and crazy samurai dudes in face paint. The hero (named The Hero) wears one of those long coats that look fantastic blowing in the wind, even though it tends to happen when there’s no wind. But… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Calling for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Mar 9, 2010 at 09:20 AM

Hudson Soft’s Calling is the latest survival horror game for the Wii. There have been plenty of these as of late, and Calling is happy to wedge itself somewhere between Ju-On: The Grudge (a haunted house simulator) and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (a psychological thriller), except that Calling is actually… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Feb 10, 2010 at 11:46 PM

The combination of flight-sim and arcade action makes for an odd little anti-war wargame that also happens to be the best air combat sim currently on the Wii. It has its troubles, none of which should deter you if you’ve been pining for quality dogfighting action since finishing Blazing Angels.… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Feb 8, 2010 at 11:03 AM

James Cameron’s Avatar The Game is unique among movie tie-ins in that, rather than basing it on the movie, it appears to be based on the trailer. Or maybe just the one sheet or concept drawings. I don’t know but if you buy this expecting to play through the rather… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Feb 4, 2010 at 10:45 AM

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has a lot going for it. The graphics are fantastic, the story and characters are fun, and the action is varied and frantic…when you’re actually doing something. And yet, the game is never quite as enjoyable as it should be. It meanders and… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Dec 22, 2009 at 11:12 AM

Despite its obvious faults, I didn’t mind working through this game because I’ve never played it before. As fan of the series, I felt I had to. But you have to go in understanding what the Resident Evil Archives series is. You’re not going to get enhanced graphics. You’re not… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Dead Space Extraction for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Nov 10, 2009 at 12:30 AM

Electronic Arts should be ashamed of themselves. In Dead Space Extraction, they’ve got the best rail shooter (or light gun) game available on the Wii – and arguably on any platform – and they’ve done next to nothing to let anyone know about it. The developer videos made available did… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga for Wii

by Kirk Hiner on Nov 3, 2009 at 08:37 AM

Boy, Valhalla Knights: Eldar Saga sure sounds impressive, doesn’t it? The title makes it sound like a game that shouldn’t just be played, but conquered. There should be figures and books and a movie. It just sounds epic. Sadly, it’s not. This is a game that sucks the joy out… Continue Reading »

Gamertell Review: LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias WiiWare game

by Kirk Hiner on Oct 26, 2009 at 01:39 PM

LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias is a charming little game. I hesitate to say that because it calls to mind singing mice or scruffy puppies with hearts of gold but that’s what Winter of the Melodias is: charming. It’s also a gorgeous game with some good puzzles, a nice dose… Continue Reading »
