REVIEWS PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventur Review
Is the entire Ghostly Adventures series, including the TV show, a prequel to the rest of Pac-Man’s life? Because in my childhood I seem to remember Pac having a girlfriend and a kid, not worrying about Pac-puberty.

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.

What do these ratings mean?

In No More Heroes you assume the role of Travis Touchdown, some anime style guy living in a motel, and he just happens to be the top 11th assassin in the world. When he wins a beam katana (make any connections there to anything else?) in an online auction he takes a vow to become the best assassin in the world by killing the 10 other assassins in front of him. While the story line is interesting, the action is funner than hell (for the first three missions at least).     you swing your sword by pressing the A button and when an enemy's health runs low you need to swing the wiimote in the direction an arrow on the screen points. If you pull it off, which you always will, you will be rewarded with a juicy decapitation or impalement.  But in between the tasty battle sequences you have the long, boring job missions that you complete in order to get enough money to get back to the good stuff. You will also notice the weird graphics that make everything look game-cubyish. So if the action wasn't so satisfying this game would be an easy                                                                                  D. 
                                        +awesome  action

                                        + good humor         
                                         - bad motorcycle controls
                                         - odd graphics
                                         - boring side missions
                                         - some environments look the same
                                         - action eventualy gets old
