Video Reviews

Video game purchases are more often than not influenced by the reviews featured in magazines and video game websites

While reading a review about a game is one thing, watching a video review of a game is something else. Video reviews are good in a sense that they show the game in action along with running commentary. I know this because I used to have a blast watching X-Play on Tech TV.

Having trouble visualizing a game through words or mere screenshots, you should check out YouTube which is a treasure trove for both amateur and professional video reviews of video games.

Here are some of the video reviews by GTTV (Game Trailer TV) that I found on YouTube, each of them around 4 to 5 minutes long.

Mario Kart DS:

Advance Wars: Dual Strike:

Brain Age:

New Super Mario Bros:

Metroid Prime Hunters:

Mario Hoops: 3 on 3:
