Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth (Wii)

Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth review (WII)

Reviewed on January 14, 2010

Here you'll find Death with his sickles and blades whirling madly around him, possessing a visage rendered more menacing than ever before by redrawn artwork. Here you'll find the Colossus with a hulking frame that fills the entire screen and shakes the whole chamber around him, here the familiar vampire bat that you've been battling since the original Castlevania.

Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island (DS)

Atelier Annie: Alchemists of Sera Island review (DS)

Reviewed on January 14, 2010

Nearly every action costs precious time, in fact, and there are no do-overs (though you can play through the whole adventure again after the credits roll and keep any of the items that you gathered on your first run). The setup works nicely, ensuring that more ambitious players can find a decent challenge in developing their empire while younger siblings and other amateur adventurers are free to take their time enjoying other less challenging aspects of the game.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube)

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 13, 2010

Eternal Darkness (ED) arrived for the GameCube with a fearsome aura about it. In common with Resident Evil Zero, this horror opus was originally slated for release on the Nintendo 64, before that console's premature exit prompted ED's migration to the next console generation and its entering into an even more drawn out development period. When the game finally emerged, it commanded immediate awe from anxious GameCubers, who had heard that it was going to be the next killer app, yet...

Wacky Races (NES)

Wacky Races review (NES)

Reviewed on January 13, 2010

Each of the 10 levels looks different and is divided into multiple parts. Muttley's opposition varies from level to level, as well, which at least gives the illusion you're doing something different in each stage. Sure, for the most part, you're running and jumping from left to right on the screen while avoiding or disposing of foes, but when the monsters and locales are constantly changing, it at least tricks me into not realizing that most of the game's "variety" is superficial.

Hottaman no Chisoko Tanken (NES)

Hottaman no Chisoko Tanken review (NES)

Reviewed on January 11, 2010

Hottaman no Chisoku Tanken transliterates gloriously to "Hotman," but that's the only smile I got from this game. It's a dig-in-the-earth game with big levels, power-ups, secret doors, hidden treasure, odd bug enemies and teleports. Find four keys and the exit for a new level. Weak level design and grossly unfair random events, though, mean fifteen looping levels provide very little adventure. Hotman is not the game its title deserves.

Call of Duty: World at War (PlayStation 3)

Call of Duty: World at War review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

Call of Duty: World At War is a good example of money cow milking at work. Following the success of Call of Duty 4, the people behind Call of Duty must have thought “Let’s go back to World War II, except we’ll just port over this new system that people like!”, then proceed to churn out copies of World at War. The result is something that is barely redeemable as a game.

The Saboteur (PlayStation 3)

The Saboteur review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

The Saboteur is an excellent game. That said, it seemed like someone might have snuck into the game studio before mass production and sabotaged the project before it was released. The otherwise excellent ideas and aesthetic styles clash with an overly simplistic gameplay system and a plethora of glitches.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PlayStation 3)

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

If I learned anything from playing BioShock, it’s to be suspicious of any game that receives overwhelming praise for reasons that seem entirely unrelated to gameplay itself. Call Uncharted 2: Among Thieves a “cinematic” experience all you want, but that alone never would have sold it to me, because a game needs to function as a game to be worth my time. Let’s also take into consideration that the first Uncharted was – let’s face it – nothing special. I enjoyed it, sur...

Blodia Land: Puzzle Quest (NES)

Blodia Land: Puzzle Quest review (NES)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

Blodia Land (BL) is a colorful, active slide-puzzler with the emphasis more on fun than abstract brain-crunching. Each level has a twisting path, which vanishes as the little lost dragon-duck walks forward. If the player shuffles tiles wrong, the dragon spins and dies. Eight diverse SMB-style maze worlds with ten-plus levels each and mini-games in dead-ends make for one of the most colorful, expansive puzzle games the NES has to offer.

Fable II (Xbox 360)

Fable II review (X360)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

I slew phantom pirates to steal their legendary treasure and shot stone gargoyles just for a moment's reprieve from the uncouth lies that spilled from their mouths. I invested in a town rotten with corruption and helped turn its fortunes around and I spent a hell of a lot of time playing fetch with my dog. There’s a lot to do in Fable 2, even if a lot of it's repeated endlessly until the appeal is unredeemable dulled. But, in how it all slots together, it makes something memorable.

Castle Crashers (Xbox 360)

Castle Crashers review (X360)

Reviewed on January 10, 2010

Castle Crashers is really neither new nor fresh, instead, it simply follows in the footsteps of past beat 'em up releases, like the two Dungeon & Dragons arcade titles and Guardian Heroes, where, besides beating up villains, you can have up to four gamers play, gain experience points, cast spells, shop at stores, and take alternative paths. Gameplay-wise, everything Castle Crashers does has already been done. However, I highly doubt the developers, The Behemoth, were aiming for ori...

OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast (PC)

OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast review (PC)

Reviewed on January 09, 2010

Realism is overrated. So many games strive to be realistic and claiming so is an exhausted marketing cliché. Arcades have decayed into an out of fashion commodity, where once an experience unseen in home consoles and arcade-quality graphics were a common marketing mantra. Since 3D graphics we’ve been able experience racing, flying, sports and battlefields almost for real almost leaving side-scrolling beat-em-ups and platformers passé.

The Quest Trio: Jewels, Cards and Tiles (DS)

The Quest Trio: Jewels, Cards and Tiles review (DS)

Reviewed on January 08, 2010

The puzzles themselves are the driving force behind The Quest Trio. All feature minor variations from the expected, and they roll out dozens of configurations to keep you busy. Just when you think you've figured out the system, a new little wrinkle arises. Can you resist falling to the same obsessions as some of those heroes? With games this addictive, good luck.

Shimano Xtreme Fishing (Wii)

Shimano Xtreme Fishing review (WII)

Reviewed on January 07, 2010

There's blood in the water. When your sharp shots puncture a fish's scales, a satisfying red cloud disperses around your unfortunate target. Your high-powered harpoon will make short work of anything that moves.

Our House (DS)

Our House review (DS)

Reviewed on January 04, 2010

The main flaw that Our House suffers from isn't a technical one, however. It's the much more mundane issue of repetition. While nearly every one of the included mini-games are fun the first few times—or even the first 10 or 20—they can only amuse for so long. It's neat to be able to remodel rooms, but there's never any real motivation to do anything more than place the required objects in the room (perhaps without even giving much thought to artistic arrangement, which seems to be rated almost arbitrarily as long as you don't have a bureau's drawers opening into a wall or a toilet in the middle of the floor).

Great Deal (NES)

Great Deal review (NES)

Reviewed on January 04, 2010

Great Deal combines Solitaire and Tetris into a nastily intriguing puzzle with its own quirks. The player picks one of a hand of four cards to drop on a five-by-five well. Three or more cards in a row of the same suit or number, or in a straight, disappear in a cloud of point values. The bigger, the better, and combos give multiples. A joker helps. One deck of cards makes a level.

Lunar: The Silver Star (Sega CD)

Lunar: The Silver Star review (SCD)

Reviewed on January 04, 2010

Lunar is not an epic. There are no warring factions, political agendas, or corrupt religions. The game's not even long — it can be completed in a day. Lunar is a short story for children and children-at-heart, full of knights, dragons, damsels in distress, and brave damsels in dress.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 03, 2010

Baten Kaitos' first few impressions are among its best. It begins with a series of flashbacks: a peaceful family scene at home, that same home engulfed in flames and invaded by sinister figures, ethereal petals coalescing to represent the bonding between human and otherworldly spirit. This tragic imagery, pregnant with intrigue, covered in film-grained sepia, and streaked by transparent vertical lines evocative of tears and raindrops, is subsequently juxtaposed with the natural hues of the charm...

New Super Mario Bros. (DS)

New Super Mario Bros. review (DS)

Reviewed on January 03, 2010

With most modern games choosing to focus on today’s big trends, the occasional nostalgic title is (ironically) a breath of fresh air. It feels refreshing to have something that is not concerned with wowing you with cinematic presentation, providing a deep, complex story, and whatever other ideas and gimmicks the big games of today might contain.
