REVIEWS NBA LIVE 15 Review
Yes, NBA Live was horrible last year. But this year's entry is a vast improvement. Just give it a try.

Dungeon of the Endless Review
A roguelike that’s equal parts charming and challenging with a turn-based twist.

What do these ratings mean?

I signed up for GR just so I could mention how Mike Reilly is a complete idiot.  GR normally rips games apart and gives lower grades than just about any other review site; for the most part I like that, because a lot of games don't live up to all the hype, and it's nice to see what negative parts to the game there are before you buy it. 

But a C+ for Yoshi's Island?  Are you kidding me?  I own the game and it's great, and I don't give out A grades to many games.  Sure, multi-player would of been nice, but that's about its only short-coming.  I love how you mention the 'puzzles' are lame, writing how obvious it is when you need to switch characters.  Didn't know that was a 'puzzle' Mike.  Yet the whole point of the game which makes it challenging is getting 100% completion on each level along with the coins.  Apparently, that's only for people with OCD according to you, so that doesn't come into play with your review.  Since you don't want to bother with that, the game turns out too easy, what a shock.  Sounds like you didn't bother much with this, or (more likely) couldn't do it.  Try and get all 30 stars, 20 coins, 5 flowers and 1 character coin for each of the 50 levels and tell me how easy it is.

This is clearly one of the best games for the DS.  You guys need to give credit where it's due and actually spend a little time playing the game before you trash talk it.  Looking forward to your C- review of Halo 3.  Unbelievable.
