About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

KMGR of "Nitro Street Racing 2"

Nitro Street Racing 2 is a sequel to the origina NitroRacing by Gameloft, and this time, it truly is MOTS (more of the same), albeit tweaked. The result is a decent racer, but with "city scapes" and some sort of choice when it comes ot the actual route, that made it a combination of most racing games. The end result is a bit of chop suey: a little of everything, but not all they added are fun.

The game gives you access to ONE car to start, but as you gain "levels" (by earning street creds via missions and winning races) you'll get access to more, and of course, none of the cars are free. You will need to pay for them using your "winnings". There are also plenty of parts to upgrade, though you unlcok them one or two items at a time. However, money is a bit too easy to come by in this game, and many of the parts makes no sense.

KMGR of "Madden NFL 10" (mobile)

From an American football game between the Ten...Image via Wikipedia
Madden NFL 10 is mostly the same game as the previous one, but tuned to be a bit more realistic, more backoffice options, and slightly better graphics. It is still the best American football game on a mobile, bar none.

For those who haven't played Madden NFL 10, this is a full 3D game very similar to the version available on the consoles, as least superficially. The third-person / behind perspective gives you full view of what's possible. Press the action key, and your player can select from a variety of moves, depending on the context and player's ratings. Moves include dive (get a few more yards), spin (dodge a tackler), change direction, hurdle, power, showboat, stiffarm, and that's just for offense!

Okay, some September Reviews...

Command & Conquer: Red AlertImage via Wikipedia

Just in time for Labor Day... More mobile game reviews!

Madden NFL 10 (mobile) -- Does Madden still reign supreme on the football game front? Or is this just MOTS (more of the same)?

Nitro Street Racing 2 -- can a basic 2D racing game actually feel like a city, complete with missions, races, a plot, upgrades, and more?

Command and Conquer: Red Alert (mobile) -- can you really do an RTS on a mobile? Or is this basically a pretender?

Resident Evil: Uprising -- do you really need another isometric RE game for the mobile?
