Featured ShackReviews:
  • Coyoterys quite enjoys Microids' Syberia II (PC), fondly recalling the graphic adventures of yore.
  • Frequent contributor Masem rightfully finds Namco's We Love Katamari (PS2) to be excellent. You might even say he loves it. He's also quite a fan of Criterion's Burnout Revenge (Xbox).

Still working through Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA), still great. I also played a little bit of Batallion Wars (GCN), We Love Katamari (PS2), and Ninja Gaiden Black (Xbox).
