Blur is one of the most unique and exhilarating racing games I have ever played. First , the Heads Up display is a very smart feature, as it lists the Power-ups a driver has on the bumper of his car. That allows the driver to keep his attention on the car, which makes driving an easier experience. Also, instead of information being spread all over, everything is simply listed in the top corners of the screen, which provides the driver with a better field of vision, and, ultimately, keeps the race flowing faster. The Power-ups are the guts of the game, making it fast paced, interesting, and fun. There are eight total Power-ups: shock, shunt, barge, mine, bolt, nitro, shield, and repair. Each one provides the player with a certain advantage over the competition, whether it be firing a bolt at a competitor’s car or using a repair kit after hitting a mine. The Power-ups definitely make the game much more interesting. They will keep you on your toes, even if you are leading the pack...More »
On June 12, SI Kids and Pokemon gave me the opportunity to participate in the 2010 Northeast Regional Pokemon tournament, which was held at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in North Bergen, NJ. This year's regionals were great! More than 500 young Pokemon fanatics took part in the tournament's Junior Division, and there were also hundreds of older participants playing later that day.
Play began at 8:30am, with contestants in the Junior division varying in age from seven to 12. Spectators at the event could watch battles on televisions scattered around the area of play, and, before it was your turn to play (or after you were eliminated), you could partake in other events. For example, in one area you could download a level 50 Shiny Eevee. They were just giving it away!.
In the area I was hanging out at, everyone was talking about what Shiny Jolteon, Vaporeon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon would look like. Other popular topics of conversation were the upcoming Pokemon: Black and White; specifically, the fifth generation Pokemon that were released in the latest edition of Pokemon CoroCoro (they'll eventually be playable characters in Black and White)...More »
Backyard Sports: Sandlot Sluggers is a great game for younger audiences who are avid baseball fans or for newcomers who want to get a feel for how baseball is played.
I would like to start off by saying that the game’s graphics surprised me (in a good way). Also, the controls are easy to use, and the game has one of the best control layouts I have seen in quite awhile. Anyone can pick up this game, learn the controls, and begin to play in a matter of minutes.More »
There are two things I really like about FIFA World Cup. First, I like the graphics, because the players in the game look so real. It's almost like you're watching a real soccer game on TV. Second, the players show their emotions. For example, if your player commits a foul you can see him getting mad...More »
