Jackie Chan's Action Kung-Fu (TurboGrafx-16)

Jackie Chan's Action Kung-Fu review (TG16)

Reviewed on April 25, 2011

Big-headedness ruled the roost on the Turbografx-16, and we had developers Hudson Soft to thank. From Bonk’s Adventure to JJ & Jeff, Hudson had a stranglehold on the burgeoning cutesy 2D platformer featuring characters with massive noggins genre.
Homefront (Xbox 360)

Homefront review (X360)

Reviewed on April 02, 2011

That Homefront permits us to wage warfare in our neighbour’s backyard is an instant coup; the gritty, literally grassroots shootouts elevate the experience from me-too shooter; a role which most other FPS games have seemed content to fill, constantly improving graphics and increasingly outlandish plots notwithstanding.
Dreamcast Collection (Xbox 360)

Dreamcast Collection review (X360)

Reviewed on March 28, 2011

Sega had a legacy here to uphold. You know how hardcore gamers love to laud accolades on lesser known, dead systems and celebrate their obscure appeal? Well Dreamcast was one of those systems. Hell, Dreamcast might have been the system – only the near-mythical Turbo Duo vies with it for that title.
Thunder Force V: Perfect System (PlayStation)

Thunder Force V: Perfect System review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 22, 2011

The Pièce de résistance, is the Final Guardian. He is so alien in his prettiness, so well animated, so deliciously cruel, that you begrudgingly endure how unfair he is. Beating him is hard enough, but what’s worse is that if you don’t beat him fast enough, he will fly away and leave you cursing at the screen as you are ‘awarded’ with the incomplete, false ending for the millionth time.
Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar (Genesis)

Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 19, 2011

There's a story here somewhere, but it doesn't matter much--this is a side-scrolling shooter after all. And the story is especially irrelevant when the developers, Technosoft, changed things up when they released Thunder Force V packaged with a revised history of the series. Suffice it to say that you will be expected to kill everything in your path in the name of victory. Martyrdom has no place in space.
Thunder Force III (Genesis)

Thunder Force III review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 17, 2011

Amazingly, on a system inundated with side-scrolling shoot 'em ups, TFIII managed to shine. Critics, shooter fanatics, and casual players alike, found common ground with this cartridge.
Silent Hill 3 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 09, 2011

What began as uncommon brilliance on the PlayStation, has degraded into a convoluted and senseless exercise in flexing visceral muscle while offering less and less in the way of engaging play. And the downward spiral began here.
Pocket Pool (PSP)

Pocket Pool review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 30, 2010

HyperDevbox Japan surely set out to do something different, by giving us ‘erotic pool.’ The word on the street is that publishers Conspiracy and Eidos sought to use the Girls Gone Wild license and do something really distinct, but talks fell through. As such, we’re stuck with a random collection of stills and short video clips of nude models and outright porn stars as our erotic content.
Gunstar Heroes (PlayStation 3)

Gunstar Heroes review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 21, 2010

Your mission is straightforward enough: As one of the two Heroes — twin brother Red or Blue — you must foil the nefarious Colonel Red (the doppelganger of Street Fighter II’s M. Bison) who has stolen the four Mystic Gems in an plot to unleash the all-powerful Golden Silver — and you’ll want to release your brainwashed older brother Green and rescue hopeless ally Yellow along the way.
Resident Evil: Survivor (PlayStation)

Resident Evil: Survivor review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 21, 2010

We’ve been able to rely on Resident Evil games for certain ingredients that bespeak their quality: amazing polygonal graphics, cheesy cinematic cut scenes, and their ability to spook the player. Survivor only gets the cheese right. This game looks horrid, but fails to provide the horror.
Vectorman (Genesis)

Vectorman review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 02, 2010

At the time of this game's release, a big fuss was made over it. Much drooling came about, and many Genesis gamers had to dab gingerly at their foreheads with cold towels. The reason was that BlueSky Software made a truly unique-looking game. Vectorman himself (he's the good guy) is made out of yellow-green spheres, and he animates brilliantly. His composition and movement might bring to mind the PC survival horror not-quite-classic, Ecstatica, had anyone actually played that game. But Vectorman's own good looks grandstand alongside shamefully bland foes, and within missions undeserving of his own undeniable charm.
Zero Wing (Genesis)

Zero Wing review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 23, 2010

Zero Wing is a side-scrolling shooter, of the deliberate, R-Type variety, not the frenetic Thunder Force variety. That in and of itself may seem strange coming from Toaplan, the makers of the prototypically hectic Batsugun and its ilk. But that strangeness isn’t the draw of this mostly mediocre shooter. The draw is the story.
Eliminate Down (Genesis)

Eliminate Down review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 16, 2010

For a shooter physique to be adequately robust, there are certain requirements. Its body composition must be as follows: rocking tunes, interesting places and foes, a hard ass level of difficulty, and that muscle which elicits memorable maneuvers from the player. ED's got 'em all in shameful abundance.
Thexder Neo HD (PlayStation 3)

Thexder Neo HD review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 23, 2010

Enemies come at you fast, but luckily your laser beam has homing capabilities, so you needn’t even aim to bring them down. Being successful is more a function of edging forward gradually enough to bring the enemies onto the screen slowly enough for the beam to melt the bad guys before they reach your face.
NHL 10 (PlayStation 3)

NHL 10 review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 23, 2009

NHL 10 is inarguably the epitome of EA’s drive to make the ideal hockey game and at this point, there really is no looking back. My only gripe is that after 09 we had so much more to look forward to.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (PlayStation 3)

Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 20, 2009

Tough guy fulfillment has all but gone up in purple smoke. That the game’s infamous obstinacy has mellowed only serves to make matters worse. Areas crawling with menace that had you sweating your way through, barely able to come up for air, now smack of bland formula and the perfunctory: run, beat up a few guys, run, beat up a few more, earn a new skill, endure long loading times at the pause screen, start running again…
UFC 2009 Undisputed (Xbox 360)

UFC 2009 Undisputed review (X360)

Reviewed on June 05, 2009

In Undisputed, the tendency is toward striking battles, rather than toward what that particular fighter is actually most comfortable with or known for. Fortunately, this flaw won’t matter much for most gamers because the average MMA fan is still far more enamoured of fisticuffs and the sudden violence of knockouts than of rolling for submissions, which presents a decisively more subtle savagery. Besides, as with most one-on-one contests, the main draw is beating up on friends – not the computer.
Spider-Man: Web of Shadows (Xbox 360)

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows review (X360)

Reviewed on December 15, 2008

So to conclude that Web of Shadows was loaded with potential would be quite the understatement. Ultimately, the game fails miserably to live up to that potential, sort of like Penny Hardaway. And why is that? Because Web of Shadows drags. Oh how it drags.
Disney's Kim Possible: Kimmunicator (DS)

Disney's Kim Possible: Kimmunicator review (DS)

Reviewed on December 04, 2008

Kim can punch and kick, stringing together ‘combos’ of each attack simply through button mashing. But there are major issues with responsiveness and hit-detection. Sometimes Kim simply will not attack though you think you might be pressing the right button, and other times Kim's punch or kick will execute but miss completely when it appears that it shouldn’t. But you needn’t worry too much; enemy encounters are few and far between. It seems as if there are maybe four enemies in each stage. I’m exaggerating, but not much.
SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom (DS)

SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom review (DS)

Reviewed on November 19, 2008

Globs tries to be Kim Possible meets The Lost Vikings, with inconsistent results.
