REVIEW: DUCKTALES: REMASTERED (Wii U)

Sing it with me now: DuckTales, Wii U! The PS3/Xbox 360/Wii era of consoles brought us many retro revivals, whether it was from classic games on Nintendo’s Virtual Console service, long-lost arcade classics like Konami’s X-Men and The Simpsons or full on reimaginings such as Ubisoft’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled. One of the most surprising remakes that was…

REVIEW: DUCKTALES 2 (NES/PS4/GAME BOY)

NOTE: Not played on the original NES, but on the PS4 version from the Disney Afternoon Collection. Capcom is no stranger to sequels: Mega Man had six entries alone on the NES and your head would probably start spinning trying to recall all the sequels, spin-offs, remasters and adjective themed updates for the Street Fighter franchise. One side of…

REVIEW: DUCKTALES (NES/GAME BOY)

In 1952, writer/artist Carl Barks introduced the world to Uncle Scrooge, an obscenely wealthy adventurer from the city of Duckburg. The character debuted in a Donald Duck story, but became so popular that he became the star of his own book for many decades and those exploits were eventually adapted into the beloved animated series, DuckTales. Like…

REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (NINTENDO 3DS)

In 2011, Beenox delivered the first ever Spider-Man game to the 3DS with the release of Spider-Man: Edge of Time. Edge of Time was a respectable port to Nintendo’s underpowered handheld (in comparison to the main SKU of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360) that suffered from what a lot of 3-D games did on the PSP. The…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN: FRIEND OR FOE (NINTENDO DS)

The Spider-Man games on the DS had a bit of a yo-yo thing happening starting out: Spider-Man 2 was not really that great, but Ultimate Spider-Man was terrific; Spider-Man: Battle for New York was a poor man’s attempt at trying to duplicate the quality of Ultimate Spider-Man but Spider-Man 3 returned things to form with a unique take on the open-world genre in two-dimensions and…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN 3 (NINTENDO DS)

When it came to Spider-Man movie tie-in games, Nintendo handhelds always seemed to get the least impressive versions. On the Game Boy Advance quality went on an upgrade trend from parts one through three, however all games were at best above average side-scrolling action games that, like in the case of the “open-world” portions of Spider-Man…

REVIEW: MEN IN BLACK: THE SERIES (GAME BOY ADVANCE)

Now defunct publisher Crave was the first company to release a Men in Black game based on the animated series, doing so on Nintendo’s Game Boy Color. Although there were two other games based on the Men in Black animated series for the Game Boy Color, the third and final game released by Crave before they…
