I never had the chance to shake those maracas in the original dreamcats game so I jumped at the chance of doing it on this new Wii version. While brief my time with the game was definetly something I never experienced before in rhythm based videogames.

On the 19th of June 2008 I was kindly invited to come and try a few levels from the upcoming Sonic Chronicles videogame at a Sonic fans exclusive taster. As I had been following the title closely with much excitement it was an opportunity not to be missed so I could try it. The event took place in the swanky Wii Flat in London and our hosts from SEGA had a few surprises up their sleeves.

Wii Fit review

To review a game like Wii fit can be quite hard as there is no traditional ending to it as it can go on for as long as it is used. In order to really get the most out of this software I decided to first try it out for a whole month by taking part on the exercises/games every day. I do admit to having missed a few days due to exams and other commitments but for what is worth partaking on Wii fit really had an effect on me.

Apollo Justice review

As you noticed in the title it seems that the mighty Phoenix Wright has gone into early retirement. At least the ace attorney title is in very good hands as the four cases within this game demonstrate. The game continues the tradition of high quality text story telling with more updated feel to it. As the title suggests your now in control of Apollo Justice with his own special ability to aid him in court. The game is supposed to follow on 7 years from the previous installment of the ace attorney game, so answers a few questions as to what happened during this time.

Apollo Justice review

I would like to start off by saying that in comparison with the first game this has quite a lot more violence in it. The fight against the mystery forces that are trying to take over the city continue as our protagonist gets called back in to lend a helping hand. This character is now completely different from the Ethan that we all knew from the first game and resembles someone out of all those action movies as a result. In terms of the story it continues where the first game ended and goes out of the way to answer many questions while making a whole new lot for the next sequel surely. In the meantime the story explains all the odd events that happened in the first game but somehow makes the game seem less mysterious due its gameplay explained later on.
