The Five Games That Actually Should Be on the Nintendo 3DS

What 3-D is good for is salaciousness and action, some things that the crop of 3-D games launched with the 3DS are largely bereft of.

Reviews

Dark Void

An homage to the pulp sci-fi of the 50s, the Void is a fascinating world, so that makes it all the more painful to watch as this new universe is wasted so completely.

Okami (Wii Version)

Not only does it not make sense for Okami to look any other way, but moreover, it makes no sense for any other game to look like Okami.

Devil May Cry 4

Devil May Cry 4 intermittently strives for a kind of high-Gothic camp, but it jumps willy-nilly into steampunk, lasers-and-robots future shock, and lost-civilization exoticism.

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros Treasure

Zack and Wiki looks very much like one would expect a game called Zack and Wiki to look -– and that's not a bad thing.

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny

It's not hard to see where Onimusha's inspiration lies. Maybe you've heard of a little franchise called Resident Evil, or perhaps you've even played the other Capcom franchise known as Devil May Cry.
