iamtheprodigy Hi there. I write reviews. Incredibly rarely. Thanks, and good day.

Title: Is it time?
Posted: January 29, 2009 (04:23 PM)
I'm sure you've all been on the edges of your seats, and I'm proud to report that I've just written an introductory paragraph to my first review in... well, a while.

Uh, yeah. >_>

Game: Brain Age 2: More Training in Minutes a Day (DS)
Posted: September 24, 2007 (03:09 PM)
Feeling a bit stupid? Positive that the best way to fix your stupidity is with a videogame? Well then I suppose that Brain Age 2 would be one of your best options. But if you feel nice and smart, then there's an overbearing chance that you'll hate this game. If not right away, then in a few weeks. Why? It just gets boring and frustrating, that's why. I know it is an "educational" game, but it falls short even for this category with its lack of variety, overall brevity, and mind-numbing fl...

Game: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Game Boy Advance)
Posted: August 26, 2007 (05:36 PM)
Many gamers consider Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 to be the best in the series. Its well-designed levels, many goals, great soundtrack and cool secret areas kept Playstation gamers happy. But I’m sure only a few of those happy gamers purchased the GBA version of it. Lucky them. The GBA game is like a dumbed-down, uglier version of the original. Sometimes the levels are similar to the Playstation levels, other times they’re only vaguely based on them. Sometimes the goals are the same, other times the...

Game: Earthworm Jim (Game Boy Advance)
Posted: August 26, 2007 (08:34 AM)
Ride with me for a moment, back to freshman biology in high school. It was a time when little else caught my attention beyond the hot brunette that sat next to me. A time when little effort was needed to be exerted to pass a class. A time when Fridays were dissection days. With a double period specifically assigned to slicing open deceased creatures and exploring the innards, not even the hot brunette could distract me (well, maybe just a little but it was time well spent). But this story is not...

Game: Dizzy the Adventurer (NES)
Posted: August 12, 2007 (01:35 PM)
Meet Dizzy. Dizzy is an egg. Dizzy comes from Yolkfolk village. Dizzy has an egg girlfriend (hot, I know) named Daisy. On one eggcelent day (I'm sorry, really I am), they discovered a secret entrance to the evil wizard Zak's castle. Little did they know, Zak himself was watching them through his crystal ball! He set a trap for them in the form of a horrible, awful, terrifying, spinning wheel (DUN DUN DUUUN!). It mysteriously spun infinitely due the magic spell placed on it by the wizard. ...

Game: Bank Panic (Miscellaneous)
Posted: August 12, 2007 (09:22 AM)
I love the old West. You know why? Because everyone just shot everyone else all the time. Okay, so maybe actually being in the time period wouldn't be the best thing, as I'm not a big fan of being shot. Shooting other people though, is a different story. Bank Panic allows me to shoot all the outlaws I want as they pop into the bank and try to grab some cash. I sit down and wait for the action to unfold, then I must shoot at the right time at the right person. I can see three of the twelve...

Game: Tetris DX (Game Boy Color)
Posted: August 11, 2007 (12:15 AM)
You know what Tetris is. Yes, you. I'm talking directly to you, reader, the one on the other side of the computer screen. I can say this with certainty because if you're on this website, reading this review right now, the chances of you not having played one of the millions of Tetris spawn are treading on nothing. In the very least, I'm sure you've seen Human Tetris (and if you haven't check it out because it's hilarious). Anyway, bec...

Game: Perfect Bowling (NES)
Posted: August 10, 2007 (07:58 AM)
It's quite a bold statement to say something is perfect. This is obviously because there are few things on this planet that we can say honestly have no flaws. One of these things, of course, would be a fresh roasted s'more. Another might be Maria Sharapova's body. One thing that we can definitely rule out as perfect though, is Perfect Bowling on the NES. The title isn't so much a bold statement as a dirty lie. This game isn't even worth the title Good Bowling or Mediocre Bowling...

Game: The Amazing Maze Game (Miscellaneous)
Posted: August 08, 2007 (06:21 PM)
Let me start off by asking a simple question. Do you enjoy stabbing yourself in the eyes with pointy things? If you answered "No" to the above question, there's a great chance that the pain suffered in this game will not appeal to you. If you said "Yes", well then boy have I found a game for you: horrible eye pain, and no sharp objects required! See, the game is a plain, black backdrop with a tiny white maze in front. There is two entrances/exits in the maze: one for you and one for the computer...

Game: Doom (Game Boy Advance)
Posted: August 05, 2007 (08:17 AM)
It's a future day. As a Marine for Union Aerospace Corporation, or UAC, you're no pushover. You walk with purpose wherever you go, flexing as many muscles as possible. On the job one day, you hear a rumor that the Mars moonbase is having problems. This is somewhat surprising, as ever since its establishment, it had been surprisingly well-kept with few if any issues. As you hear more of the story, you realize that this is serious. Marines and scientists at the base are being slaughtered by hellis...

Game: LEGO Racers (Nintendo 64)
Posted: August 04, 2007 (09:19 PM)
I've always hated Legos. Perhaps it's my lack of natural building skills, as I've never been into models, Tinker Toys, Jenga, or whatever else there is out there to stack, mold, or design. Figuring that the N64 racing game was just, well, a racing game, I didn't worry that my strong dislike of the toys might come into play. Well, put simply, I was completely wrong. The game involved building and customizing your car and your driver using animated Lego pieces. Alright, so this bugged me. I once a...

Game: The Ocean Hunter (Miscellaneous)
Posted: August 03, 2007 (04:56 PM)
If you, like me, have been wondering lately what it might feel like to shoot torpedoes at sharks and other underwater creatures, then you should immediately head to the nearest arcade with The Ocean Hunter in it. I was attracted to the game by its large guns and underwater theme. Bringing a buddy in with me, we inserted our trusty tokens and took the plunge, so to speak. The helpful screen introduced us to our animated counterparts, who happened to be two divers in tight, uncomfortable-looking w...

Game: Mario Party (Nintendo 64)
Posted: August 02, 2007 (08:28 PM)
Mini games are generally designed to be a distraction from the main game - a fun little addition to keep you busy if you get bored with the big picture. Other times mini games are cleverly squeezed into the main game as a way to beat enemies, get through some maze, or find an item. But Mario Party is unique in the way it implements its mini games: as the main part of its gameplay.

Game: Rampage: World Tour (Nintendo 64)
Posted: July 28, 2007 (11:53 AM)
There's a commonly held belief that at least ninety percent of the people who have played Rampage don't have the slightest clue what the story of it is. Most don't understand why they are controlling a giant lizard or monkey or werewolf, and few comprehend why on earth they are destroying popular cities and eating poor, innocent, humans. For most of my gaming life, I was one of these people. Blissfully unaware of why I was doing it, I was killing and destroying left and right. Regretless,...

Game: Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure (Genesis)
Posted: August 21, 2006 (08:39 AM)
Ever wondered what it would be like if you blended Mario Bros. and Sonic into one game? Well, I'm sure it would be a lot like Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure, assuming you threw in the whole Toon thing in there somewhere. Oh, and don't be turned off by the fact that this is a show-based game, it's made my Konami, and it has "brilliance" written all over it. Well, sometimes, the "brilliance" is covered by a bit of "frustration", but we'll get to that later.

Game: NFL Blitz (Nintendo 64)
Posted: August 13, 2006 (09:46 AM)
Tired of slower-paced, graphically-accurate football games like Madden? Want to play the sport and have a bit more fun with it also? This is Blitz, where you don't have to know a thing about the game of football, hell, you could even hate the sport, and you could still have serious fun. It takes the real deal, then removes all the penalties and rules that slow it down. Plus it adds huge muscles, attitude, and then speeds everything up twofold.
