Rhythm Tengoku was the first game I ever imported from Japan.

Game: Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened (Miscellaneous)
Posted: May 30, 2007 (04:38 PM)
Remember playing Grim Fandango or The Longest Journey and getting stuck? Remember trying to find that needle in the haystack by moving your mouse and covering every inch of your screen, hoping to come across a hotspot and finding a key item or initiating an action? Well, those haystacks have grown exponentially thanks to The Awakened being played in first-person.

Game: F-Zero X (Nintendo 64)
Posted: November 21, 2006 (11:30 AM)
Though itís tough not to love Mario Kartís frantic multiplayer, thereís one thing it doesnít have over F-Zero: the joy of competing in futuristic thirty-man races at six hundred kilometres an hour. And, because the outcome of all races mostly depends on your skill and not luck, thereís something extra satisfying in battling your way from thirtieth on the grid to victory in three laps.

Game: Guild II (Miscellaneous)
Posted: November 16, 2006 (03:51 AM)
Welcome to 1400, a time when everyone bribes, spies, and blackmails for personal benefit. It just so happens, though, that life in medieval times isnít everything itís cracked up to be, as repetition quickly creeps in.

Game: Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)
Posted: September 16, 2006 (08:33 PM)
Wild World is the portable version of the GameCube virtual life hit, where youíre plonked in a colourful town full of cute little animals to lead a second life. Little has changed from the original. Upon arriving in your newly named town, Tom Nook, the raccoon owner of the local store, has kindly built a house for you to call your own. Sadly, you are now in debt to him and must slowly repay the large sum. But it doesnít end there. As soon as youíre done paying off the mortgage, Nook happi...

Game: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)
Posted: September 11, 2006 (03:47 PM)
Though Yoshi's Island is technically the sequel to Super Mario World, it bears almost no resemblance to its predecessor. The game tells the story of the attempted kidnapping of the baby Mario and Luigi. Kamek the Magikoopa, on orders from King Bowser, tries to snatch them from a stork, but only succeeds in taking Luigi. Baby Mario, however, lands on Yoshiís back, and after realising what has happened, all the Yoshies agree to help Mario rescue his brother. The obliging Yoshies take...

Game: Indigo Prophecy (PlayStation 2)
Posted: September 07, 2006 (06:57 PM)
As one of my closest friends used to say, there are too many identical-looking sequels and too much unoriginality out there in the video game industry. After all, why bother changing the formula if it sells? It is a shame, because we rarely do see fresh, innovative titles nowadays. Bearing this in mind, Quantic Dream knew they were taking a big risk when they started on adventure title Fahrenheit, especially considering that they were experimenting in a genre that was fading away to first...

Game: Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)
Posted: August 12, 2006 (08:08 PM)
For days, your faithful horse has endured the burden of carrying both you and the figure of a lifeless young lady into a land where man is forbidden to enter. With the arduous trek finally behind, in view is a remote, age-worn temple. After laying the body down on the altar inside, a deep voice bellows out in response to your demand to resurrect her: slay sixteen colossi in exchange for her life. You set out for the first, not quite knowing how to vanquish these beasts with only your horse, swor...

Game: Paper Mario (Nintendo 64)
Posted: July 14, 2006 (11:10 AM)
In a time where many role-playing games employ the conventional menu-driven battle system, you can always trust Mario to bring something new to the table. After numerous wacky sports and party titles, he livens up yet another derivative genre.
