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...

NBA 2K10 (Xbox 360)

NBA 2K10 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

Excluding the My Player mode, NBA 2K10 is a good (though very familiar) basketball game that still manages to capture the essence of the sport.

Cars: Race-O-Rama (Xbox 360)

Cars: Race-O-Rama review (X360)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

Cars: Race-O-Rama is essentially a streamlined version of the first game with new collectibles, bigger environments, superior controls, and fewer story developments. If you’re a kid who loves Cars, this drive is going to feel like a highway to Heaven. If not, the repetition and lack of challenge could make this game feel like a road with no exit.

DJ Hero (Xbox 360)

DJ Hero review (X360)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

Activision hasn't had the best of track record (double entendre) when it comes to music games. They bought the rights to Guitar Hero when Harmonix left the franchise to make Rock Band, and from there the Hero franchise has been a downward slope. I had given up hope when Guitar Hero World Tour came out, and laughed at how badly the Hero franchise wanted to be Rock Band.

Bleach: The 3rd Phantom (DS)

Bleach: The 3rd Phantom review (DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2009

The 3rd Phantom generates its joy by including a wide range of characters, showing them in positions you've never seen, and ultimately letting you focus solely on your favorites. In that regard, this otherwise mediocre game is a resounding success.

Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox 360)

Dragon Age: Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on December 01, 2009

Dragon Age: Origins is grand in every sense of the word. The land of Ferelden and its associated legends and lore create a strong, if slightly predictable, high-fantasy setting that will quite easily consume in excess of forty-hours. As the land prepares for an imminent blight – an invasion of twisted creatures known as darkspawn – your character is recruited into the legendary order of the Grey Wardens, warriors from all walks of life who have came to the world’s aid in blights past.

Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space review (X360)

Reviewed on December 01, 2009

While [Sam & Max: Beyond Space and Time] doesn't progress the genre beyond where it wads a decade ago, it's still a solid resurgence of a lost art.

Bust-A-Move Live! (Xbox 360)

Bust-A-Move Live! review (X360)

Reviewed on December 01, 2009

I've played plenty of puzzle titles over the decades, like Tetris, Columns, Tube-It, Kunio no Oden, Puyo Puyo, Klax, Baku Baku Animal... I could go on for the entire paragraph. Out of all the games I've played, however, there is one puzzle title that I enjoy the most: Bust-A-Move 2. As with most puzzlers, the gameplay in this one is really simplistic, asking the player to clear each map of designs consisting of bubbles of many colors, which you do by matching up three bubbles of the same color. ...

Insanity (Turbografx-CD)

Insanity review (TGCD)

Reviewed on November 30, 2009

Insanity is the first TurboGrafx homebrew game in eight years, and the first to ever feature PSG music in addition to a CD soundtrack. Aside from some assistance on the artwork, this Berzerk clone (to use the creator's own words) was essentially programmed by one guy in under one year.

Modern Warfare 2 (PlayStation 3)

Modern Warfare 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 26, 2009

War doesn't change a damn thing no matter how noble the cause, especially during these times in the so-called, "War on Terror." Take out one evil and another more evil one takes its place. The ones who die become martyrs. Their bloodshed gives breed to new followers. War is a convoluted power struggle where yesterday's enemies will become tommorow's allies or something like that..

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on November 24, 2009

Isn't it ironic how the "Greatest video game ever made" was supposed to put Nintendo back on top, but instead led them to their inevitable downfall? Despite becoming the most commercially successful Zelda game to date with more than 7 million copies sold worldwide, in addition to being mentioned on virtually every "best of" list imaginable from critic and gamer alike, not even Ocarina of Time could save the Nintendo 64 from suffering humiliation at the hands of Sony. The 'Big N' who once ...
