Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo (Turbografx-CD)

Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo review (TGCD)

Reviewed on October 27, 2011

Rondo of Blood prides itself on following Castlevania traditions while not relying on them solely. I could yammer on for ages about awesome level designs, great ominous scenery, and fantastic soundtrack packed with modern updates of memorable themes. However, you could attribute those qualities to any great Castlevania title. Rondo of Blood uses them in such a way that they serve as both tradition and homage.

Blood Stone: 007 (PlayStation 3)

Blood Stone: 007 review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 26, 2011

Bond has landed in a cover-based shooter and he's smart about it. If you put him behind a crate and an enemy is approaching his location, it's easy to creep to the edge, then duck around the side of the crate without standing up and exposing himself. Or if there's cover nearby, it's easy to roll to that cover and keep moving from there. The difference is in how long you hold down the appropriate button once you press it. The whole process quickly becomes second nature and feels a lot more natural than it did in similar titles.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES)

A Nightmare on Elm Street review (NES)

Reviewed on October 26, 2011

The Elm Street license, however, won't distract most gamers from noticing that this an unremarkable platformer. This is not to say it's unplayable. The mechanics, apart from entering buildings, are stable and functional; the platforming scenarios are passable; and the overall product is still far greater than many others that carry the LJN name.

Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360)

Batman: Arkham City review (X360)

Reviewed on October 25, 2011

Has a virtual place ever been such a canny combination of story backdrop, richly atmospheric graphics, and thrilling playground as this walled off section of Gotham City converted into a prison? Arkham City is densely packed with things to see, things to hear, and things to do. Gliding over the rooftops can be as rewarding as strolling along the streets. Rocksteady's city is a spectacle through and through, even more beautiful than Ubisoft's Assassin's Creeds for how it's so true to its fanciful Gothic tone.

Ghoul School (NES)

Ghoul School review (NES)

Reviewed on October 25, 2011

If anything keeps Ghoul School from mediocrity, it's the kitschy touch. It's entering the music hall and battling a monstrous music instructor and his carnivorous music note sidekick. It's cheesy enemies like the Grease Monkeys, cap-wearing primates that chuck wrenches. Sadly, camp is not enough to elevate the experience to greatness. The act of tediously searching through mostly bland environments wears you down.

Tricky Kick (TurboGrafx-16)

Tricky Kick review (TG16)

Reviewed on October 25, 2011

Attention puzzle game gurus! Tired of taking apart videogame conundrums like so much Lego? IGS has your game. You wonít beat it any time soon. In fact, Tricky Kickís box should wear a disclaimer: If you think youíre at all good at games, donít play this. Your ego and sense of self worth may be smashed irreparably.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES)

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse review (NES)

Reviewed on October 24, 2011

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse is consistently great from start to finish. Each level begins with malevolent surroundings and devious music for a chilling atmosphere. It sends you through a gauntlet of challenging scenarios and against horrific creatures, building for a grand conclusion in a fearsome clash. Castlevania III is a fitting finale to a memorable trilogy, and easily the apex of the three.

Friday the 13th (NES)

Friday the 13th review (NES)

Reviewed on October 22, 2011

Horny pot-smoking counselors outrunning a masked maniac isn't enough to fill a side-scrolling action game, but it can definitely work for a cheesy film. There isn't enough there to inspire constant interactivity, and just running around and avoiding or killing Jason would be a dull task. However, padding out the finished product with broken ideas is less favorable than not bothering with the project.

Spider-Man: Edge of Time (Xbox 360)

Spider-Man: Edge of Time review (X360)

Reviewed on October 21, 2011

Edge of Time cuts down on the variety and makes the story more of a focus. The modern day's Amazing Spider-Man teams up with the 2099 version to stop a futuristic scientist from achieving his time travel dreams ó namely going back in time to start up the Alchemax corporation, so that it (and he) would be an unstoppable force of world domination by the future.

DeathSpank (PlayStation 3)

DeathSpank review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 21, 2011

The sound of cold steel slicing through a demon's rough hide... The jangle of cash as it materializes in the vicinity of your enemy's corpse... The glory of a well-placed post-battle quip... and who can forget Justice! They're equal parts of what make DeathSpank an exhilarating action-RPG, one that boasts a generous amount of humor, action, and side quests.

Dark Souls is one of the finest Zelda games you'll ever play that isn't actually a Zelda game. Don't miss it!

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (Xbox 360)

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift review (X360)

Reviewed on October 20, 2011

I sank hours of my time into the game and nearly every precious moment was spent zoning out or wishing that I could play something else. I didn't care when the ninth consecutive opponent fell at my feet with barely a whimper. I didn't much care when the next one soundly thrashed me, either. Everything was pretty enough along the way to that thrashing that I very much wanted to care, to let myself fall in love with the whole experience, but somehow I couldn't because nothing had managed to hook me.

Frogger 3D (3DS)

Frogger 3D review (3DS)

Reviewed on October 19, 2011

There are situations where youíll find yourself playing through something fiendishly clever and youíll realize that itís a perfect extension of the classic gameplay. Of particular note are the stages that finish up each of the worlds. To complete the first world, youíll have to flatten the tires of a huge truck (the same one that elsewhere has been squishing frogs, I like to think) by pushing a spike strip into its path. The second world concludes with a harrowing ride atop several trucks as you avoid low-hanging signs, eagles and holes.

Civilization V (PC)

Civilization V review (PC)

Reviewed on October 18, 2011

And hereís a major place in which Civilization V seems to fall down. Maybe itís just too long since I last tackled a Civ game, and Iíve simply lost my ability to play make believe within its boundaries. More likely, thereís a problem. Because for the life of me, I just could not even fool myself into being convinced by the diplomacy system.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (Xbox 360)

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon review (X360)

Reviewed on October 16, 2011

Then there's the payoff: an up close, incredibly detailed look at the destruction that never gets tiresome. Smoke engulfs metal, wings break off, and you'll sometimes actually see the pilot flail uncontrollably out their aircraft! I excitably let loose an explicit the first time I witnessed that.

Bejeweled 2 (PC)

Bejeweled 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on October 14, 2011

Adding to the fun are the fruits of putting together four- and five-jewel combos. The former creates a magical sparkly jewel that, if placed into a line of three, will create an explosion to clear out ALL surrounding gems. The latter causes a weird amoeba-like shape to appear. If you find yourself stuck, you can click on it and any surrounding gem to make all of that color get eradicated.

Silent Hill (PlayStation)

Silent Hill review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 14, 2011

But when a well made horror game beckons you to advance further, dread replaces your enthusiasm. You wonder at what traps could be waiting, or what new grotesque menace could be lurking in the shadows waiting to unzip your torso and feast on your corpse. You advance further, counting your ammunition and health restoration items and hoping it will be enough.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (PlayStation 3)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 10, 2011

You are Adam Jensen, a retired police-man now in the employ of Detroit's largest corporation. Your previous effort in Detroit PD has enlightened you to the ways of the world. But also letting you see that as head of security of Sarif Industries, you are more free to help the town and investigate crimes than as a police-officer. Your method is still that of a good cop, however. Always preferring a non-violent and indirect approach. But it is difficult to convince Adam Jensen to look the other way...

Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360)

Gears of War 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on October 09, 2011

Weíve cared so little for these characters, their conflict or the world they inhabit that years from now, when the next big shooter craze arrives and Gears finally becomes obsolete, I canít help wondering if weíll look back on this trilogy with a collective shrug. Gears 3 is simply a great shooter, and for now, thatís enough. I love great shooters almost as much as I hate missed opportunities.

There's even a Resident Evil 3-themed level, including zombies, a hulked-out Nemesis, and Jill Valentine, the latter which you can transform into and... yes, see in her undies.
