101-in-1 Sports Megamix review (DS)

Reviewed on November 16, 2010

Tennis’ failure doesn’t detract from every game, and you could argue that when given such a large number of sports to partake in, there’s always going to be some duds, and you’re always going to be able to skip over some events and still have enough points locked away to attempt everything. The problem is that there are too many mini-games that play out like the failures than there are the successes.

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.

Super Meat Boy (Xbox 360)

Super Meat Boy review (X360)

Reviewed on November 15, 2010

The titular hero – a cube of meat that tracks blood everywhere he treads – is in love with Bandage Girl. Unfortunately, the dastardly Dr Fetus hates Meat Boy and kidnaps her. This marks the beginning of Meat Boy’s perilous quest to rescue his love and defeat the unborn baddie.

Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny (Apple II)

Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny review (APP2)

Reviewed on November 15, 2010

Sequels usually promise a bigger world, more spells, more detailed combat, and so forth, but when it comes to the previous game's narrative faults, they don't say much. Ultima V (U5) isn't just shinier; it makes a complaint about its predecessor the focus of the plot. Many people thought U4 micromanaged how the player gained and kept virtue. So the villain in U5 is a quasi-theocratic dictator, Blackthorn, who has deposed Lord British since U4 with the help of nebulous spirits called the S...

Call of Duty: Black Ops (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Black Ops review (X360)

Reviewed on November 15, 2010

So there are a lot of explosions and people cuss a lot, sometimes a few times per line of dialogue, and then when the tone is properly established there's not really much profanity at all and the explosions don't really impress as much because when you've seen one Jeep go up in flames, you've seen 'em all. It's at that moment, when you've become desensitized to the napalm and the knife thrusts and the pistol blasts, that you realize something: Black Ops isn't a particularly competent single-player shooter.

Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar (Apple II)

Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar review (APP2)

Reviewed on November 15, 2010

Before Ultima IV (U4,) people took being the good guy on faith. Maybe you'd get your butt kicked if you robbed a shopkeeper or attacked a townsman, but generally it was you against skeletons and goblins and the like. It was great fun, but Ultima III took things too far. The best strategy was to kill druids in one town until you were strong enough to kill guards in another town with a huge treasure vault. Then you could go kill a computer. Technically, the game was a strong achievement, and it so...

Q*Bert's Qubes (Arcade)

Q*Bert's Qubes review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 14, 2010

Q*Bert's Qubes(QQ) certainly has a niche market--people who figured how to tread water in the toughest levels of Q*Bert. It's the arcade equivalent of a Rubik's Cube, and it's certainly one every action puzzler fan should see, even if it isn't much to look at.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PlayStation 3)

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 13, 2010

Drake is a kick-ass sort of super-cool guy who seems completely in control whether he's gunning down hostiles, impersonating Spider-Man while exploring vast caverns for treasure or delivering devastating zingers with impeccable timing. Working as his support cast are TWO potential love interests, an equally sarcastic friend-turned foe, a gruff and shady mentor and, of course, a megalomaniac looking to take over the world. The script writes itself.

OutRun (Arcade)

OutRun review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 12, 2010

Accompanied by those all-important accessories of the '80s – a cool pair of shades and a hot beach bunny – you too can climb behind the wheel of a cherry-hued Ferrari Testarossa and experience the simple pleasures of tearing through picturesque countryside at nearly 200 miles per hour.

Win, Lose or Draw (NES)

Win, Lose or Draw review (NES)

Reviewed on November 12, 2010

There isn't any point to having this on NES, or any system for that matter. Much of what you can do in the game can be done much more efficiently and with better results in real life. It's like making a video game out of Tic-Tac-Toe or Rock-Paper-Scissors.

Medal of Honor (Xbox 360)

Medal of Honor review (X360)

Reviewed on November 10, 2010

I won’t pretend that I’ll not sink hours and hours of my time into online play, but it doesn’t stop the title from being only half of what it should be. I’m not about to ignore that.

Medal of Honor (Xbox 360)

Medal of Honor review (X360)

Reviewed on November 10, 2010

With the first-person shooter market drowning under a relentless flood of like-minded brands trying to emulate the top dog, the entire genre is turning in on itself. There are the rare gems which come through in a big way and attain universal appeal. The Bad Company and Modern Warfare games, in particular, are refined console shooters which have totally spun the age-old argument that shooters are best experienced on the PC in the opposite direction. While the Medal of Honor series may have faded...

Rock Band 3 (Xbox 360)

Rock Band 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 09, 2010

One of the biggest complaints about simulated rock has been that jamming with plastic instruments just isn’t the same as playing a real instrument. For me, that’s missing the point; these sorts of games have always been more about having pure and utter fun. But Harmonix has spent the last two years addressing this, and while the basic premise of Rock Band 3 has a familiar feel to it--play a bunch of songs until you become a superstar--it's also the most innovative and complete rhythm game yet.

Battlefield 1943 (Xbox 360)

Battlefield 1943 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 09, 2010

In 1942, in Vietnam, in a fictionalised present day and even a century and a half into the future, the Battlefield series of games has provided exactly what the title suggests, and it was this very quality that sold me on Battlefield 1943. I had never played games online before and didn’t know whether I’d enjoy it, but as I ran along the top of a sun-baked ridge on Wake Island atoll, bombs screeching past overhead to spatter me in chunks of earth as tanks rolled by and my comrades sprinted for t...

Dragon's Curse (TurboGrafx-16)

Dragon's Curse review (TG16)

Reviewed on November 08, 2010

A super deformed knight runs across the screen, his sword held high in a completely impractical position. His eyes are larger than his fists, and it gives him a less than dignified look. The man looks like a Weeble. Let's hope he wobbles and doesn't fall down. Super deformed beasties come at him. Even though they smile like characters in a children's cartoon, you know what they want is him laying in a pool of Weeble blood. Maybe he can fall down. The knight hacks and slashes and enemies fall wit...

Super Sprint (Arcade)

Super Sprint review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 08, 2010

The top of an outdated genre isn't a bad place to be. Super Sprint will always have a place in any respectable classic arcade. Give it a shot to see what the cranky old-timers used to play; I bet you'll have trouble walking away.

Body Harvest (Nintendo 64)

Body Harvest review (N64)

Reviewed on November 07, 2010

The N64 library contains a reasonable share of classics, considering the lack of software support compared to the titan that was the Playstation. Many of these classics are well known: Zelda, Mario, Goldeneye, and so on. As in any field of entertainment, though, some classics are woefully overlooked. I direct your eye to Body Harvest, a game that may lack the glossy presentation and heavyweight pedigree of a game like Zelda, but makes up for it with imagination and ambition.

River Raid (Atari 2600)

River Raid review (A2600)

Reviewed on November 07, 2010

River Raid is a piece of shooter ecstacy. You take the role of a pilot flying down a river shooting up a bunch of bad guys. Why? Because they're evil! Why else? The manual doesn't give you a backstory. Nothing's a better waste of government money or ammunition than blowing evil to smithereens. It has been proven time and time again in many of these shooters.

Pirates! review (NES)

Reviewed on November 07, 2010

Sid Meier is a name associated with strategy and management. Civilization, Colonization and Railroad Tycoon are among Meier’s better-known games, but before these monuments of intellectual gaming there was bloodthirsty high seas thievery in Pirates!
