Game: Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)
Posted: July 15, 2005 (10:30 AM)
Stealth games – all the fun of sitting still, being quiet and generally trying to be as anti-social as possible. Metal Gear Solid’s token good guy, Solid Snake, certainly won’t be invited to any parties after infiltrating someone’s house, silently shooting everyone and stealing their plans for world domination (don’t deny it, everyone has them). But, if anyone can make a half-decent game from a genre which demands the player spend long periods of time doing very little, our anti-social he...

Game: Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube)
Posted: April 07, 2005 (06:00 AM)
Turn on your console and you’re greeted with a grainy, evil-voiced quote from Edgar Alan Poe. As this rather cheerful quote suggests, Eternal Darkness takes its influence from that of the great literary horror novels, especially those of H. P. Lovecraft. To be honest, Eternal Darkness blatantly rips off much of Lovecraft’s Cthulu novels, and this is no bad thing for a survival horror game seeking distinction.

Game: Action Fighter (Sega Master System)
Posted: November 25, 2004 (04:02 PM)
Action Fighter was always going to be a success in the arcades. For its time, it was bright, colourful, had great highscore potential and it had great appeal for the steering wheel that you would use to control your almost suicidal vehicle. But with the steering wheel absent from this console version, it is instantly an uphill battle for Action Fighter to gain favour in the eyes of competent gamers. Action Fighter may have been quite addictive in its previous incarnation, but as with most Arcade...

Game: FIFA International Soccer (Game Gear)
Posted: November 24, 2004 (01:51 PM)
A good handheld football game is about as common as Wales qualifying for a major Championship (and I should know, I still have nightmares about the Romania and Russia play-offs). Strike that, it’s rarer. There isn’t one portable computer game out there which can genuinely be considered a definitive simulation of the beautiful game. They’re all pretty much terrible. Until Konami bring their Pro Evo series to the DS and PSP, it’s unlikely that a quality handheld footie game will ever see the light...

Game: The Curse of Monkey Island (Miscellaneous)
Posted: November 24, 2004 (01:34 PM)
Ah, the point-and-click adventure! As primitive as they may seem in the days of analogue control and full-3D environments, there’s no denying the enjoyment of a nice, slow-paced, puzzle-driven adventure. The Monkey Island series has to be my favourite point-and-click adventure series. Despite the taxing puzzles, you’ll rarely not be smiling as the games pour on their razor-sharp wit and humour at almost every possible interval. Fans of the series will be happy to know that, despite the huge grap...

Game: NFL Quarterback Club (Game Gear)
Posted: November 24, 2004 (01:11 PM)
Back in the day, NFL Quarterback Club was one of the daddies of American Football. Many of its incarnations were mightily superior to its Madden equivalent. But now on the Game Gear we see one of Acclaim's earlier attempts at cornering the American Football market.

Game: Columns (Game Gear)
Posted: November 20, 2004 (01:12 PM)
If asked what your favourite puzzle games are, most you would probably reply mentioning at least one version of Tetris. Be it Tetris Worlds or Tetrisphere, the Russian puzzler is by far the world’s favourite computer game puzzle. There are, however, many alternatives to Tetris, but few which can rival its simple yet addictive gamplay. Sega though, have always liked a good challenge, and an arcade-like puzzler may be what is required to topple the Russian King from his throne of computer puzzling...

Game: Second Sight (GameCube)
Posted: November 18, 2004 (12:37 PM)
Second Sight’s sudden release was a bit of a surprise really. Not even the few expectant forum gamers (having already waded their way through Psi-Ops) would have foreseen this third-person action-adventure being released at the beginning of September (UK release) without any real hype whatsoever since it was first unveiled just a few short months ago. A surprise indeed, but a generally pleasant one to boot.

Game: Metal Arms: Glitch in the System (GameCube)
Posted: November 15, 2004 (10:04 AM)
A game like this is a rarity. It's clearly taken a lot of effort, it's a beautifully crafted title and it's very apparent that publisher Vivendi Universal have splashed out on trying to make this a full-blown robotic romp of an action-adventure. Yet, the marketing's non-existent so there's virtually no hype surrounding it apart from a few veteran gamers on internet forum claiming it to be a "Halo-beater". It may not really be that superior to Halo, but for some reason, despite Metal Arms being a...
