Star Ocean: The Last Hope (Xbox 360)

Star Ocean: The Last Hope review (X360)

Reviewed on February 03, 2012

The Bonus Board isn't permanent, though, as if an enemy whacks the character you're controlling with a critical hit, you'll watch a number of your bonuses dissipate. I had a knack for killing stuff with critical hits, so at times, I'd be getting at least an additional 100 percent experience. One of those hard hits against me and it was down to 50 percent and I'd have to build my board back to its former glory (or take another couple critical hits and have to start from scratch).

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GameCube)

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 02, 2012

The first Paper Mario was an unexpected gem released at the end of the Nintendo 64 lifespan. And the third installment felt less like an RPG, and more like yet another Mario platformer. But, to this day, I still hold the second game in the series, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door as one of the best games ever.

Pushmo (3DS)

Pushmo review (3DS)

Reviewed on January 31, 2012

Like Mario in Donkey Kong the hero can leap only a short distance, so a lot of pulling is necessary if he’s going to scale some of the larger puzzles. It starts to feel almost like you’re building your own platformer as you go, which could easily become frustrating except that you can undo the last 15 seconds or so of play by holding the L button to rewind your actions, as in a Prince of Persia title.

Medal of Honor: Airborne (Xbox 360)

Medal of Honor: Airborne review (X360)

Reviewed on January 31, 2012

There’s plenty to complain about with Medal of Honor: Airborne. There’s simply even more still to appreciate.

Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on January 29, 2012

I watched the TV series, I got the games, I collected the cards, I played with the toys, I read the books, and I went to see the movies. (The first movie is still one of the only movies that ever made me cry, and DON'T PRETEND LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.) And even though I missed out on Hey You, Pikachu (oh dear?), I was able to get the other non-RPG N64 Pokémon game, Pokémon Snap.

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 29, 2012

Having finally played and completed Final Fantasy X-2 after all these years, I find that it is neither as bad as its detractors have painted it, nor is it as good as its fanbase says it is. It's not as good as its predecessor, but it's far from being the worst entry in the series, as some would have you believe.

Eternal Eyes (PlayStation)

Eternal Eyes review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 28, 2012

One could make the argument that the game accomplished what it set out to do in providing a generic, affordable title. Eternal Eyes's issue isn't that it didn't succeed at what it attempted to do, but that it set its standards way too low. No one aspires to be an average singer, a mediocre actor, or a ho-hum painter with the cost of little training or devotion. Even at a discounted price, no one wants mediocrity.

Scarygirl (Xbox 360)

Scarygirl review (X360)

Reviewed on January 28, 2012

Unfortunately, that joy was often marred by frustration. The controls seem a bit loose, which can make precise leaping more trouble that it's worth. Your character is pretty versatile, using her tentacle arm to whack enemies, briefly hover through the air and swing from objects, but it got tricky to consistently pull off some of those moves, especially since the girl struggles with fundamentals like stopping on a dime.

Kirby Air Ride (GameCube)

Kirby Air Ride review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 27, 2012

How many games do you know of that an experienced, early-20s gamer and his 6-year old step-nephew can both enjoy at the same time? Not many, but one that pulls this off masterfully is 2003's Kirby Air Ride...

Rotastic (Xbox 360)

Rotastic review (X360)

Reviewed on January 23, 2012

It's not until you reach the 40s where Rotastic starts presenting some truly tough and frustrating levels. Scenarios within each level change the structure of the map as jewels are collected, blocks broken, and switches pressed. A typical example starts a level off very open and simple, only to turn into a nightmare as walls are moved in, cannons placed in the most irritable locations, and saws, rotating saws, are positioned right beside rows of jewels.

Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary (Xbox 360)

Halo: Combat Evolved - Anniversary review (X360)

Reviewed on January 23, 2012

Anniversary is a remake in the visual department only, and the enhancements actually make Halo a worse overall game. You can avoid this by switching over to Classic Mode, but then you might as well just save yourself a healthy chunk of money and download the original game off XBLA, unless you think it’s worth paying nearly three times the price for widescreen support.

Astyanax (NES)

Astyanax review (NES)

Reviewed on January 22, 2012

[Astyanax] may not stand above such brethren as Ninja Gaiden or Castlevania, but it sure beats out other rough awesome-wanna-bes like Castle of Dragon and Frankenstein: The Monster Returns. Astyanax doesn't suck up or beg for your love and respect; it commands it with a stiff punch that will break your jaw in six different places.... and you'll like it.

Eternal Dagger (Apple II)

Eternal Dagger review (APP2)

Reviewed on January 22, 2012

The too-short Wizard's Crown series from Strategic Simulations, Inc. had a simple solution: quick combat where the computer ran everything and flashed text of your party's health every second. It left time for the actual story and exploration.

Tobal No. 1 (PlayStation)

Tobal No. 1 review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 21, 2012

I know people have made this sort of statement before, particularly regarding Zone of the Enders, but it felt more like a $40 FFVII demo that came with a free fighting game. Not a great one at that.

Unstoppable Gorg (PC)

Unstoppable Gorg review (PC)

Reviewed on January 19, 2012

Unstoppable Gorg is a tower defense game with a twist. That’s a claim that any PR person might make about any new offering within the genre. In this case, though, it’s an especially apt description because the twist is this: you twist things.

AMY (Xbox 360)

AMY review (X360)

Reviewed on January 19, 2012

Tragically, though the poor presentation is the first thing you’ll notice, it’s not the worst. Not by a long shot. In fact, an argument could be made that the presentation is the best thing the game has going for it.

Star Wars: The Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: The Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on January 18, 2012

The Old Republic is fun, tells some interesting stories, and offers players a vast amount of things to do. But the game still suffers from the same things that hold back all MMOs despite the class storylines and voice acting.

Faery: Legends of Avalon (Xbox 360)

Faery: Legends of Avalon review (X360)

Reviewed on January 17, 2012

The average enemy in this game seemed to come from generic lists of animals and undead. I found it somewhat annoying that the mythical Norse Yggdrasil's dungeons were loaded with hornets and termites instead of, you know, something suited for the game's theme.

Rayman Origins (Xbox 360)

Rayman Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on January 17, 2012

Taken as a counterweight to the flood of steely grey shooters littering the market, Origins is weaponized bliss. It’s also freakishly difficult, and that’s where Ancel and I have our differences.

Power Blazer (NES)

Power Blazer review (NES)

Reviewed on January 15, 2012

If the comparisons between Power Blade and Mega Man are hard to see, then Power Blazer makes them painfully obvious: you control a small, chubby fellow that dons a blue helmet, and unlike his remixed, muscled brother, this guy can only attack in two directions, left and right.
