professorlayton commented on Review: New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle B...:

@ Smashbros99 - Well it all depends on whether or not you want to try out the new control scheme. I found that the new control scheme is miles better than the old one, and as a result I had a lot more fun playing the game this time around.

Regardless though, you can't really go wrong seeing as the game is only $29.99.

professorlayton commented on Nintendo Download: Dr. Mario, Wonder Boy, More...:

Did anyone else decide to give Dr. Mario Express a go?

I downloaded the game earlier today, and I'm really disappointed with the final product. It feels like a stripped down version of the WiiWare version. It lacks online and multiplayer modes, and the single player mode isn't very engaging. Yes, I realize that the game is only $5, but still, you're not getting a very good bargain here.

professorlayton commented on Reggie says "important" Wii titles coming:

Just thought I'd pass along that a reliable source at NeoGaf has stated that Factor 5's new title is fairly casual and allows players to explore the world.

They also have another title in development but it's a shooter that takes place in both the air and on land.

While these are only rumors, the poster has usually been spot-on when it comes to posting things.

professorlayton commented on Reggie says "important" Wii titles coming:

While Nintendo has not shown it, many retailers are listing the game for a November release. It's pretty likely to happen seeing as the Japanese are still eating up the original Wii Fit and Wii Fit + would help boost Wii sales in the region.

professorlayton commented on Excitebots - Online Mode Info & Screenshots:

From the gameplay videos I've seen, it looks like Mario Kart mixed with Excite Truck. Though that may not be a bad thing, I'm a little skeptical about whether or not it'll work. Looks like I'll find out when I pick up the game next Monday.

professorlayton commented on Review: Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64):

Great review, Thomas!

Conker's Bad Fur Day is one of those few Rare titles I never got an opportunity to play, and after reading your review, I think I may have to try and track it down.

professorlayton commented on Review: Bonsai Barber (WiiWare):

@ longtimegamer
You wouldn't believe how hard I worked just to get this done today. If I started reviewing it a few minutes later, I probably wouldn't have got it finished today.

professorlayton commented on Exciting Details For Excitebots: Trick Racing:

I must say, the more I read about Excitebots: Trick Racing, the more I want to play it. From the sounds of things, it's going to be the must-have racing game on Wii this year.

Hopefully the game will also be a sales success, too. We all know that Excite Truck didn't do nearly as good as it should've.

professorlayton commented on Review: We Ski & Snowboard (Wii):

I will admit, We Ski was quite a fun game, despite its lack of depth. We Ski & Snowboard is basically the same game except snowboards have been added to the mix. It's not really the sequel I was expecting when I first heard about the game.

professorlayton commented on Review: Evasive Space (WiiWare):

Wow, I was told that I'd receive a lot of backlash, but I didn't imagine this much.

Let me put things this way for those complaining. If you can adjust to the game's controls, you may find some enjoyment in the game. If you can't, you're only going to see this as an average title.

professorlayton commented on Nintendo DSi North American Launch: April 5th:

Just a note to Canadians, the DSi will launch at an MSRP of $199.95 in Canada.

"Nintendo pioneered hand-held entertainment in the '80s and made it fully mobile with the Game Boy™ video game system. Now, Nintendo is transforming the way people access, experience, create and share content with the new Nintendo DSi™ system, the third iteration of the world's best-selling portable video game system. Nintendo DSi launches in North America on April 5, 2009, at an MSRP of $199.95. The colours available at launch will be Blue and Black."

professorlayton commented on Nintendo DSi North American Launch: April 5th:

Well this is great news. To be honest, I'm actually more excited for Rhythm Heaven than the DSi.

Out of those two colors, I'll be picking up the black. I wanted the white one but since it's not going to be available at launch, I'll just get another black DS.

professorlayton commented on USA WiiWare Update: Evasive Space:

Hi everyone,

I'm the new reviewer who's reviewing Evasive Space. I downloaded the title earlier today and from what I've played thus far, I'm not too impressed. The main problem I had with the game is that it isn't really all that fun. Who knows, maybe I'll end up liking in the end.

@ Bahamut ZERO - From what I've played thus far, the game will be lucky to get a six from me. No matter how much I play it, I just can't get into it.

professorlayton commented on Art Style: Orbient:

I downloaded Orbient on Monday, and at the moment, it's my favorite WiiWare game. I've already reviewed the game and I gave it a 9.

professorlayton commented on Review: Plättchen: Twist 'n' Paint (WiiWare):

3 - Poor
This is the sort of game you buy and instantly wish you didn't. The developers and publishers are probably well aware of what went wrong and are trying to put a brave face on it. Don't be fooled, accept our warning and run a mile!

Sounds like the game is bad... very bad.
