Project Rub (Nintendo DS)
Welcome to the utterly weird world of Project Rub, the insanely addictive game where you'll have to flick, blow, poke, stroke and rub your way into your girl's affections. With 30 increasingly bizarre love matches, from poking balls to vomiting goldfish, you'll have to use the power of touch, voice and even your breath to bring the game to its climax.

The game opens with an impressive animation, combining retro and contemporary graphical influences. Some in-game graphics are also stylistically impressive. In some other areas, however, the graphics are more just simplistic or dated-looking.
As for playability, the mini-games just aren't that satisfying, and many feel underdeveloped. I completed a good few on the first attempt and was left thinking "Is that it?". Others are more fun, but generally there's little (if any) replayability. Completing all the games on normal difficulty isn't hard, just a matter of perseverance.
Once you've completed a game in "story" mode, you can save it to "memories" and play it on its own. These are supposedly longer versions, but I had no real desire to revisit them or to complete the game in "hard" mode.
The "story" screens look nice at first. However, after countless ludicruous plot twists, you lose any feeling of attachment, and they just get in the way; especially when you've already seen them.
The tunes are jaunty, self-consciously wacky, and start to *really* grate after a while. There doesn't seem to be any way to turn them off. In all seriousness, I never want to hear them again, and they seriously put me off the game.
I really wanted to like Project Rub, as presentation-wise it's often brilliant and innovative. Unfortunately, its in-your-face weirdness also gets annoying very quickly, and the games just aren't enough fun.
1. Better graphics, Sega's cell-shaded characters are much cooler than Nintendo's generally childish Marios and Warios. And because there are fewer minigames the quality of the in-game graphics are very good, with the game never resorting to obvious memory saving tricks like minigames that are played on a character's mobile phone so that the game can get away with monochrome low-res sprites.
2. Better sound, the tunes are truly catchy. Combined with the graphics they give the whole game a unique atmosphere.
3. The humour. The game's more aimed towards the teenage/adult market than children so, although you're never going to see anything as course as GTA on a Nintendo platform, it's not as overwhelmingly schmaltzy as the average Nintendo title.
The only reason this title doesn't get five stars is it's limited long term playability. There aren't that many games in there, I counted little over 20, which isn't as bad as it sounds as they're all intended to be played for a lot longer than Warioware's 5 seconds, but isn't enough to leave you any surprises after, say, the second day of playing.
It's a good game, in fact it's great for showing off the DS's sound and graphics, just don't expect to be still trying to finish it after the second week. Best DS launch game to show off to your mates.
Also, top tip - this game is absolutely dirt cheap on ebay. For a couple of quid its madness not to buy it really.
Its about a young lad who is really just trying to impress a girl by having to complete certain (not exactly everyday) tasks. Granted, the focus of the DS hasn't exactly been storyline orientated, and this game is another example of that, but this is not about the story.
The gameplay requires (once more) the touch screen element using the stylus (a touch screen pen.) You have to complete objectives such as having to clear a track whilst your friends hurtle towards you in shopping trollies, shooting raging bull's which are trying to attack you, having to shout, "I LOVE YOU" at the top of your voice into the mic to attract someones attention, and of course, everyones favourite, saving your girlfriend from an attack of little scorpions. What this game ultimately is, is different, unique, an unforgetable experience which im guessing some will love and others will hate.
Graphically, its unusual too. Its very difficult to describe other than a rather adult sort of animation, i really cannot explain how it looks, but i guess its ok. On the other hand, the music is fairly dramatic, rythmic, and interesting. This is a good game sonic team.
