Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 22, 2009

Playing the original Sonic the Hedgehog is a lot like revisiting your old elementary school: you know your way around, and you’ve got some good memories, but the place just isn’t as big as you remember it. Sonic 1 feels like a footnote in platformer history—it’s so slight that it’s hard to comprehend why it was such a big hit. It’s decent, but the gameplay feels unrefined, the level design is a mixed bag, and the game’s look is neither as fast nor as colorful as its sequels. Sonic 1 plays like e...

Berserk: The Millennium Falcon (PlayStation 2)

Berserk: The Millennium Falcon review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 22, 2009

With its emphasis on fast-paced, cinematic action and strong storytelling, Berserk: The Millennium Falcon successfully brings these memorable encounters from the manga to life while providing some fun, if imperfect, action across several varied backdrops. Just make sure you watch the TV show first.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers (Wii)

Bakugan Battle Brawlers review (WII)

Reviewed on December 21, 2009

Entrenched fans should approach Bakugan: Battle Brawlers with all these changes firmly in mind. This isn't a rote recreation of the live game they've come to love, and it's missing that game's more evolved mechanisms. But they should also approach it with an open mind. The basic changes create a more dynamic experience.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 17, 2009

Metal Gear Solid 2 is the point of the series where it it’s not just a game anymore. It was here that Hideo Kojima was convinced he was making History’s Next Great Epic. This was to be the Homer’s Odyssey of the video game era. The half hour codec conversations were to leave the viewer in a state of trance, convulsing with the uncontrollable aura of Truth. When Kojima tells us “Life isn't just about passing on your genes. We can leave behind much more than just DNA”, we are not listening ...

Fatal Frame (PlayStation 2)

Fatal Frame review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 16, 2009

Most games are meant to entertain. Some are also meant to help us relax. Games like golf, for instance, are said to be amazing stress relievers. Supposedly it has something to do with hitting little balls while wearing baggy pants in the great outdoors. And then there’s Fatal Frame which, as far as I can tell, people play to give themselves heart attacks. It has little to do with the great outdoors and the only baggy pants involved are filled with the shit that was scared out of you ...

Asuka 120% Maxima Burning Fest (Turbografx-CD)

Asuka 120% Maxima Burning Fest review (TGCD)

Reviewed on December 15, 2009

The idea of schoolgirls beating each other up in sanctioned one-on-one combat is absurd, but the energy, competitive arrogance, and youthful vitality ring true. The concept may not translate as well into American culture, but this club-vs-club extravaganza struck a chord with Japanese gamers. Although outdone by its descendants, Asuka 120% Maxima Burning Fest delivers a fun, hyperkinetic look back at what once made the PC Engine "the" system to own.

Lost: Via Domus (Xbox 360)

Lost: Via Domus review (X360)

Reviewed on December 14, 2009

There's a special feature on the LOST - Season 3 DVD that looks at the concept and creation of the video game. It's really nothing more than four minutes of hype and promises, which makes LOST: Via Domus sound really awesome.

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles (Wii)

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles review (WII)

Reviewed on December 14, 2009

When Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles came out, there were several glaring omissions from the level selection. What happened to Resident Evil 2? Or Code Veronica? It was pretty obvious that Capcom left them out on purpose. Perhaps they thought RE2 and RE3 were too similar in location to both feature on the same game? A more cynical view is that they probably saved RE2, their most popular game, and Code Veronica, the least popular game, for a separate release in order to milk the series for mor...

15 Puzzle (Xbox 360)

15 Puzzle review (X360)

Reviewed on December 14, 2009

Snowcap Games' 15 Puzzle is exactly what it claims to be: an electronic version of the classic sliding tiles game. Even if you didn't know what it was called, you probably know the one: it's a flat four-by-four grid, containing fifteen tiles and one empty slot. The goal is to slide tiles around until they're in the correct order.

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (Wii)

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories review (WII)

Reviewed on December 13, 2009

Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is much like the feared movie adaptation of a popular video game. Although there is a real Silent Hill movie in existence, the movie is probably much closer to the canon story of the video game series than this “reimagining”. Like a movie adaptation, Shattered Memories takes the basic concept of the first Silent Hill game; Harry Mason searching for his lost daughter after a car crash, and morphs it into a much shorter, watered down experience. All the principle ch...

Peggle (Xbox 360)

Peggle review (X360)

Reviewed on December 13, 2009

As a game and an experience, Peggle succeeds tremendously in what it set out to achieve. You might say, by that measure, it’s perfect.

Return to Mysterious Island 2: Mina's Fate (PC)

Return to Mysterious Island 2: Mina's Fate review (PC)

Reviewed on December 13, 2009

Despite a couple of hiccups, Return to Mysterious Island 2 does enough of the important things right to deliver a unique and slightly nostalgic experience, and is sufficiently different from its older sibling to justify its place on the fence between Sequel and Expansion.

Qix++ (Xbox 360)

Qix++ review (X360)

Reviewed on December 12, 2009

These changes at first seem to provide some welcome depth to the experience, but they come at a cost: instead of allowing you to play through an endless mode—which would have been a nice challenge and would have felt true to its arcade roots—the game now replenishes your stock of ships with each new stage and switches to a credits sequence once you finish the eighth zone. Then you can complete a second batch of eight stages. Once you've done that, you're done with the single-player mode unless you feel like going back to obtain a better score.

Street Fighter 2010 (NES)

Street Fighter 2010 review (NES)

Reviewed on December 10, 2009

From the bottom of my heart, I believe this game is based on a true story. Of course, any mild-mannered human cannot grasp the possibility of this logic being real, but thankfully, you have me to explain the details. See, Ken, of Street Fighter fame, built a time machine and went back to the past, to warn the citizens of yesteryear about the impending hardships of the year 2010. He knew people would consider this crazy, however, especially since his time machine, which would have been the ultima...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 08, 2009

I don't claim to be a wizard with all types of armaments known to man. I don’t claim to have a vast knowledge of how combat tactics work either. That being said, I do understand numbers, human error, and other things of that nature. I bring this up because Modern Warfare seems to have a grasp on how numbers 1 and 2; it falls flat on its face with number 3.

Chronicles of Mystery: Curse of the Ancient Temple (DS)

Chronicles of Mystery: Curse of the Ancient Temple review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2009

An undeveloped plot is this title's catastrophic failing. A casual game like this, without providing much challenge or variety in its gameplay, has to tell a compelling story. Curse of the Ancient Temple builds layers of intrigue and conspiracy, but then whimpers to an ambiguous ending.

Might & Magic II (Apple II)

Might & Magic II review (APP2)

Reviewed on December 06, 2009

Might and Magic II overcompensates wildly for its predecessor's insane difficulty, and the poetry even scans and rhymes. With more organized and rewarding side quests, you won't notice how stupid the two new character classes are. The formula remains intact: FPRPG, five towns, several castles with quests, dungeons that may or may not be relevant, and all manner of weird nooks that give items or raise attributes--temporarily or permanently. While it's not appreciably bigger than the original, MM2...

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble (PSP)

Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 04, 2009

The payoff is a hilarious look at the world of delinquents, at least as it's portrayed in several anime series. If that aspect of youthful Japanese culture sounds interesting, then you'd be crazy not to pick this game up and at least give it a whirl for a few minutes. It's weird, wacky, and completely insane. Come on -- do I need to Smash Talk you into a purchase?

Viking: Battle for Asgard (PlayStation 3)

Viking: Battle for Asgard review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 03, 2009

Gruesome. In a word, it's what Viking: Battle for Asgard strives to achieve. A rival viking stumbles dead after the cut of your blade, an 'X' icon next to his still upright corpse. There's a difference between slaughter and sending a message. You could let his body fall by the wayside, focusing on the flock advancing. Or you could warn the impending legion of their doom. Tap that 'X' in time and watch as Skarin mercilessly gores the deceased on his blade before decapitating the mini...
