Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin Review
game: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
review | 04/06/07 | Amanda Bateman
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In Portrait of Ruin, a picture is full of a thousand demons. A thousand demons about to be cut down by whips and giant crosses, that is. In the second Castlevania title for the Nintendo DS, take control of two characters and get ready to tangle with Dracula. While very much in line with the rest of the series, there are a few surprises herein for fans of the series. Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin might be right up your alley if you\'re in the mood for a good adventure game, a few puzzles, and lots of bosses.

Brain Boost: Beta Wave and Brain Boost: Gamma Wave Reviews
game: If Only They Could All Be Brain Age
review | 01/09/07 | Laurie Taylor
The success of Brain Age has helped to launch an entire genre into the public mindset. While video games will probably always revolve around high action and high intensity, games designed to make you smarter have established a slower, more serious side of gaming. Yet even games that are designed to make you smarter have to be fun, and Majesco\'s Brain Boost series for the Nintendo DS simply doesn\'t make the cut. We take a look at Brain Boost: Beta Wave and Brain Boost: Gamma Wave to see if there\'s a winning combination of entertaining puzzles and something to improve the mind; we\'re not entirely convinced we found either.

That Retro Review: Myst
game: Myst
feature | 09/15/06 | Chris Martin
One of the most influential games of its era, Myst is a game where you can\'t die, you can\'t turn around (much) and you really can\'t walk away from its awesome puzzles. When it was released in 1993, it ushered in a new type of genre, the adventure-puzzle game, and became - for a time - the best selling game of all time! How does it stack up today? Has this adventure game aged like a fine Chardonnay or soured like milk? Chris has been to the Ages of Myst and back and has freed Atrus in this review of Myst!

Wild ARMs Alter Code: F Review
game: Wild ARMs Alter Code: F
review | 11/29/05 | Amanda Bateman
Fight the metal demons, commune with Guardians, discover secret treasure, and restore Filgaia to it\'s original splendor! What, you\'ve already done that, you say? Well, how about another round? Wild ARMs has been cleaned up, reworked, and enhanced from scratch to create Agetec\'s latest RPG, Wild ARMs Alter Code: F. It\'s a big improvement, but is it enough to grab your interest? Amanda has the verdict right here.

Cyan Worlds Closes Its Doors, Says Goodbye
news | 09/03/05 | Aaron Stanton
Say farewell to one of the landmarks in video game history. Cyan Worlds, the creators of Myst, have closed their doors. The company was made famous when it used incredible pre-rendered graphics, moody audio, and brilliant puzzles to create a huge following in the game industry. The original Myst served as a crossover title that brought thousands of causal players into the more complex and beautiful world of the hardcore. Until The Sims took the crown, Myst was considered the best selling game of all time. Cyan Worlds was also one of the few companies dedicated to adventure games anymore, and we\'re sad to see them go. Best of luck, guys.

Sphinx and Cursed Mummy
game: Sphinx and Cursed Mummy
review | 04/21/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It might be tempting to dismiss Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy as just another platformer, but you'd be missing out it you did. Though there are a few flaws to be found here and there, great characters, varied gameplay, and cool puzzles are just a few of the reasons to give this one a look. Click here for the full review.
