Castle Crashers is, by far, the most anticipated Xbox Live Arcade game of the year. It won the Audience Award at this year's Independent Games Festival, it features the work of the guys behind some classic flash games, and it combines the fun of Golden Axe with the graphics of Alien Hominid. Really, what more could you ask for? ...
...While this is all awesome news for fans of the genre, the real draw of Castle Crashers is undoubtedly the art style, which is entirely hand-drawn and smooth as silk. Fans of Alien Hominid (especially on Xbox Live Arcade) will definitely find themselves in familiar territory here, with outlandish violence and bright colors taking up the majority of the palate in CC...

Review: Burnout: Dominator racing (PS2) FunnyGames, April 10, 2007
...This racing game has not changed substantially - you still pilot a car at breakneck speeds through the crowded streets of unnamed cities. You get points for driving recklessly. Weaving through oncoming traffic and drifting around corners builds up boost, which then can be triggered for a scary speed burst...
...Instead of racing, most of the events take the form of challenges: drift for over 9,000 yards, complete a lap in under a minute, take out fifteen cars. These are neat mini games, but here they have almost completely replaced the basic racing game which is rubber-banded to death anyway...
