Quake II (Nintendo 64)

Quake II review (N64)

Reviewed on October 13, 2016

Itís a precarious thing to write a review for a 17-year-old game. How does one judge its graphics, its soundóhell, its gameplay, even? But the latter is something that typically shines through in a game of this age, and allows for an adequate review. Iím happy to report Quake II delivers here--even on the limited N64 console, the gameplay is solid as hell, although not without its faults.
Orcs & Elves (DS)

Orcs & Elves review (DS)

Reviewed on November 10, 2013

A solid fantasy romp that focuses on what makes fantasy games fun: slaying enemies, using potions, and trying new weapons.
The Stanley Parable (PC)

The Stanley Parable review (PC)

Reviewed on October 26, 2013

Is The Stanley Parable fun? No, I wouldn't say that it is. But it's mesmerizing, to the point that players will likely play through it so many times that each and every possible ending and branched path is exhausted, and they're left with but a ponderous thought that gnaws and claws at the things they thought they knew about video games, limitations and life.
NightSky (3DS)

NightSky review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 09, 2012

Sometimes, the levels will blur together and proceed quickly, with little to no challenge. When the ball gets to rolling swiftly through these areas, you're offered a free and spirited look into the essence of Nightsky. It has come together; it meshes. I think NightSky would have been better suited not to be a puzzler; instead, perhaps it shouldn't have been a game at all, but rather an interactive story. Nicalis clearly knows how to tug at your heart, as all of the game's flaws will assured...
New Super Mario Bros. 2 (3DS)

New Super Mario Bros. 2 review (3DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2012

Some people may be turned off by the game's seemingly flamboyant disregard for real change, but if you like Mario before, there's little reason to dislike this game.
Pushmo (3DS)

Pushmo review (3DS)

Reviewed on April 02, 2012

With a seemingly effortless efficiency, the developers of Pushmo have created a puzzler which presents a delicate blend of difficulty and fun, while maintaining variety; things rarely get stale in this downloadable treat.
Shadows of the Damned (Xbox 360)

Shadows of the Damned review (X360)

Reviewed on August 01, 2011

It's rare to experience a truly funny video game these days. It seems most games stumble over themselves trying to create life-like experiences and gritty, scintillating gameplay; humor is a mere afterthought.
Ratchet & Clank: Future (PlayStation 3)

Ratchet & Clank: Future review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 23, 2008

Over the past two generations of consoles, not many franchises have shone brighter than Ratchet and Clank. Insomniac used a seemingly flawless formula of bad-ass guns, huge explosions and stellar platforming to entrench the series among the industry's finest.
Resistance: Fall of Man (PlayStation 3)

Resistance: Fall of Man review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 14, 2008

A strange race of aliens infests continental Europe. You are Nathan Hale, an American soldier tasked with snuffing out the spread of this dangerous and powerful race.
F.E.A.R: First Encounter Assault Recon (Xbox 360)

F.E.A.R: First Encounter Assault Recon review (X360)

Reviewed on March 31, 2007

With first person shooters becoming a staple of gaming on nearly all platforms, itís becoming harder and harder to find the quality titles. However, behind the customary Haloís and Metroidís, one stands tall; it stands as a groundbreaking mix of atmosphere, gunplay, and exploration. That title is F.E.A.R.
WarioWare: Smooth Moves (Wii)

WarioWare: Smooth Moves review (WII)

Reviewed on March 22, 2007

It didnít take Nintendo long to realize that it took simple, fun and entertaining games to make the Wii a success. Thatís why, outside of Zelda, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves is the best game in the new systemís library and is a landmark for how to utilize the unique controller.
Metroid Prime Pinball (DS)

Metroid Prime Pinball review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

What sounds more insipid than a primitive pinball machine that creaks and groans, tantalizing you with its boringly enticing gameplay, simplistic concept, dry display and generally dull premise? Nothing, of course. But that doesnít mean that a pinball game centered on the lively worlds of Metroid Prime canít be a freaking riot to play.
Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox)

Hitman: Blood Money review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 11, 2006

The seemingly insipid story revolving around a genetically cloned man offing assortments of people around the world doesnít look or sound too outwardly appealing. I mean, canít we fill a slew of bad guys with lead in countless other games already? Sure we can. But what makes Hitman: Blood Money so darn endearing is its matter-of-fact approach to the stunningly brutal acts of murder found throughout the whole game. However, itís not simply the murder that does it; itís the maddeningly clever ...
Resident Evil: Deadly Silence (DS)

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence review (DS)

Reviewed on May 07, 2006

Toss aside the robotic and archaic controls, the seemingly predictable surprises in abundance and the undeniably boring story present in nearly every Resident Evil known to man, and youíre left with what looks to be a scant amount of enjoyable video game material. Adding insult to injury, letís throw on an antiquated control scheme, and some of the worst voice acting to ever grace a video game system. It sounds like Iím ripping Resident Evil: Deadly Silence a new one, but in truth, I have to a...
Tetris DS (DS)

Tetris DS review (DS)

Reviewed on April 03, 2006

There can never be too much said about the quality found within the hallowed halls of the Tetris franchise. Whether you look at it as simplistic, yet forceful or charmingly intricate, the seriesí undeniably splendid gameplay and enduring replay value is a benchmark for all future puzzlers. With Tetris DS, the concept is simple enough: present a game that manages to utilize some of the DSí functions, add a bevy of game modes, and keep the same vintage gameplay in tact; suffice to say that Tetri...
Metroid Prime: Hunters (DS)

Metroid Prime: Hunters review (DS)

Reviewed on March 26, 2006

This game has given me some much needed perspective on an aspect of life Iíve sadly desertedÖmy temper. Yes, while Metroid Prime: Hunters sports some of the most handsome graphics available on a handheld, finely tuned AI, impressive online features, and even bots to engage the lowlifes with no friends, it still manages to frustrate me to a maddening level with its controls from hell. After you pop this game in your DS (and you should, this is still a fine game), be warned now that within an ho...
Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

I'll be the first to admit it: I fell head over heels for the cutesy charm of Animal Crossing on the Gamecube. Its simple, yet meaningful tasks paved the way for a digital experience unlike any other video game I've ever played. Upon hearing of a DS version in the works, I was simply elated. Portable fossil unearthing, fruit planting, and house customizing action sounds excruciatingly irresistible; and it is, for the most part. A couple flaws keep this one from transcending the original (al...
Mario Kart DS (DS)

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on November 22, 2005

The Mario Kart franchise has always been a stalwart in Nintendo's lineup of games. Featuring all of the iconic Nintendo characters in zany karts, a party-like spin is what makes Mario Kart great. While it still takes skill to be good, an assortment of powerups can be used to vault you from last to first in a matter of seconds. This all sounds familiar, (and it is) but what makes this game stand out is its astounding graphics, portability, and (FINALLY!!) online play.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX review (GBC)

Madden NFL 06 (Xbox)

Madden NFL 06 review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

In 2004, EA's bold disregard towards its biggest competitor, ESPN 2K5, made many wonder why the most dominant franchise in video games would act so ridiculous in the face of competition. Even after making incredulous claims, EA went out and bought the rights to the NFL, effectively erasing any chance another company would take a shot at Madden's throne for quite a while. With all eyes watching this year's rendition, Madden attempts to reassure its long time fans, and at the same time innovate...
