Dungeons & Dragon Daggerdale (XBLA)Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale
Available for: Xbox 360 (XBLA), PC, PSN
Game Developer: Bedlam Games
Game Publisher: Atari
Release Date: May 25, 2011
Official website: www.atari.com/daggerdale

Game rating:

3.5 out of 5 stars

Review summary:
Players who enjoy third-person hack-and-slash fantasy action may enjoy what Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale has to offer. There is deep character customization and plenty of stats to grind. At times, there is some gameplay grinding that feels like filler. Some quests are made mundane by the often dark and generic environments. The game isn’t without its share of glitches, with several particularly glaring ones. Playing co-op makes the experience a bit more fun. Overall, Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale offers a decent diversion for the action-RPG hungry, but doesn’t revive the Dungeons & Dragons game franchise as hoped.

Fast Food Panic – review

in Game Review Bits

Fast Food Panic
Available for Nintendo DS, Wii
(reviewed on Nintendo DS)

Game Developer: Nobilis
Game Publisher: SouthPeak Games
Release Date: January , 2010
Official website: www.fastfoodpanic.com

Review Summary:
Take a dash of games like Cooking Mama, sprinkle in some WarioWare, and add some Diner Dash and you have Fast Food Panic. The game’s anime illustrations and pixel art should appeal to just about any age. Although the story mode is short, some unlockable mini-games offer more variety and replay value. Don’t expect a full entree of a game. Fast Food Panic is quick arcade gameplay service that offers up multi-tasking challenges.

Available for Nintendo Wii
Game Developer: Nintendo
Game Publisher: Nintendo

Review Summary:
The team at Nintendo has once again made a game for all ages. New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a delight to play and is accessible for everyone. Casual to hardcore, young to old, this game surely bridges the gamer gap. With its all-new 4 player multiplayer, new power-up suits and level designs, players will come back for more. No two game sessions will ever be alike.

The Punisher: No Mercy review

The Punisher: No Mercy review
Available for PlayStation 3 (from PlayStation Network)
Rating: M (Mature)

Release date: July 2, 2009
Developer: Zen Studios
Website: www.punishernomercy.com

Game Summary from Zen Studios:
"Your goal is simple – survive the grim world of The Punisher: No Mercy. Choose your avatar from eight unique characters, from the Punisher himself to his sworn archenemy, Jigsaw. Assemble your arsenal from a wide range of weaponry and almost superhuman abilities. Use cover and power-ups to your advantage. Seek out and destroy any opposition either on your own or with teammates."

Review Summary:
The Punisher: No Mercy is an average first-person shooter powered by the Unreal Engine 3. Environments and some HD graphic artwork from Marvel artist Mike Deodato look good, but gameplay feels stiff. The single-player campaign is a dressed up bot-match with under one hour of gameplay, making this essentially a multiplayer game. There are a few interesting game modifiers and many things to unlock for repeated gameplay, but few may have the drive to do it. It’s hard to complain at the $10 price, but The Punisher: No Mercy isn’t the best of the PlayStation Network downloadable games.

The Chronicles of Riddick – Assault on Dark Athena
Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC
Release date: April 7, 2009 (US)
ESRB Rating: M (for Mature)
Publisher: Atari
Developer: Starbreeze Studios
Website: RiddickGame.com

Summary:
Though the fate of the game was in jeopardy for some time after being dropped by Activision, I can honestly say that I am glad that Atari picked up publishing duties for this game. The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena is a great game with engaging voice acting and sweet graphics. Only some occasional problems mar the experience.
