    Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Feh, evolution be damned. Mario Galaxy 2 is enough of a better game than Galaxy 1 and on the whole *infinitely* better than Sunshine (not from a "the water pump was a stupid idea" standpoint, mind you, but from a "there were just too many @#$%ing terrible aspects" standpoint). You can talk about...

    Zero Punctuation: Oblivion

    Well, you nailed a lot of the key flaws, but you got one thing wrong, Yahtzee--you actually DO need to explore the landscape thoroughly, because apart from the major towns, none of the other game's locations are marked on your map until you actually reach them, although everafter they're...

    Zero Punctuation: Metal Gear Solid 4

    I found Metal Gear Solid 4 enjoyable, but the main flaws that Yahtzee points out are all indeed present except for one: I found the story very easy to follow. Yes, this is because I knew the previous games' stories, but I also found MGS2 very easy to follow and I hear people complaining about...

    Zero Punctuation: Soul Calibur IV

    Alas, dear Yahtzee, you disappoint me. I'm not much for fighting games, either, but even I know that when two skilled players are fighting each other in that epic multiplayer clash, it's never about random button-mashing. SoulCalibur (as in, you know, Excalibur) is no exception, and in terms of...

    Zero Punctuation: Super Mario Galaxy

    Even the great Yahtzee cannot resist this game's charm! XD Although I really wish you would have taken a shot at those two optional missions where you have to throw bombs at trash heaps, destroying them all within 30 seconds or starting over. That minigame is BROKEN, damn it, BROKEN! T_T

    Zero Punctuation: Prince of Persia

    That was a hilarious and extremely gratifying review, but once more you missed a trick, Yahtzee. I was waiting, waiting, and waiting for you to mention how the entire game felt like it was on semi-automatic pilot, but before I knew it I was bopping my head to the ending guitar riff and you...

    Zero Punctuation: Sonic Unleashed

    With all due respect to Yahtzee and all of his fans... ...this review... Makes me laugh. But I disagree, and Sonic Unleashed has wormed its way up to ninth on my Top Ten Favorite Games of All Time list. I admit that's partly because I'm a shameless Sonic fanboy, but it's also because I...
