Pros: Prints quickly, fairly quietly
Cons: Printer ink is always a racket, but this one takes it to a preposterous level. The color cartridges are only good for a few pages. Black ink lasts somewhat longer, but it pulls the trick of telling you that you're out long before you actually are. You can override it if you're willing to ignore its threats of potential damage to the printer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Chrono Trigger Nintendo DS Game
Pros: Faithful port of what is easily one of the greatest games of all time and a pinnacle of the RPG genre.
Truly epic storyline driven home by beautifully drawn graphics and a moving and resonant soundtrack.
Some handy extra features like the "music box."
Cons: Expensive for a port.
Some of the other extras like the Pokemon-clone monster arena feel like throwaways.
Other Thoughts: A must-have for any RPG fan. A recent IGN reader poll of the best games of all time rated the original SNES game second only to Ocarina of Time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Spore PC Game
Pros: Really engages your creative side; easy to use editors make it impressively simple to create all manner of things. Gameplay gives you a good chance to test them out.
Great fun seeing other people's creations downloaded into your game.
Cons: Outside of the editors, gameplay can run a bit on the shallow side. It's still fun, but it's good, not great.
And then there's the DRM. You get three installs before you have to call EA's customer service and hope they'll be gracious enough to allow you to play the game you paid for. Hope you don't have to reinstall your OS or buy a new computer before you get bored with this.
Game *requires* use of one of those three activations to play, so EA has the power to turn off their activation servers and turn your game disk into a shiny coaster at any time.
