Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Game Boy Advance)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 25, 2009

If you grew up during the 1990's then chances are you were exposed to the Ninja Turtle phenomenon in one form or another. Originally debuting in 1984 as a series of black & white comics by indie creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles quickly grew in popularity culminating with the 1990 release of their first, self-titled theatrical movie. At about the same time Konami of Japan were working on an arcade based, 4 player Ninja Turtle inspired brawler that was ultim...

Mirror's Edge (Xbox 360)

Mirror's Edge review (X360)

Reviewed on April 24, 2009

Background/story: Mirror’s Edge is set in an unnamed near future city, where all forms of communication are monitored by the local government. The only way to get messages through unchecked is through Runners, parcour practitioners who run through the city sky line in order to deliver information. You play as Faith, one of these runners, who early on in the game exposes a political conspiracy and is on a journey to expose the truth and her sister for being tried for murder.

Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)

Lost Odyssey review (X360)

Reviewed on April 24, 2009

You know, if you don't put much thought into things, the concept of immortality is pretty damn sweet. Since you're living forever, you'll be a drifter (don't want to freak out the mortals with how you're not aging, do you?), which means you'll see as much of the world as you please. You'll get to experience all sorts of cultures, watch civilizations rise and fall and pretty much be a walking encyclopedia of knowledge throughout time.

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise (NES)

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise review (NES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2009

Lots of games give you characters that kick butt, but only Secret Scout forces yours to. If you groaned at this pun, it is not as painful as trying to solve this game. The game almost could be good. It has a sizable map, items you have to ration, and a variety of scenes. It features a real underdog, too--your scout can barely kick in front of himself, and enemies quicker than him can hit him multiple times. Once you figure out how to navigate this mess, though, the game quickly gets repetitive.

Sword of Sodan (Genesis)

Sword of Sodan review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 24, 2009

Sword of Sodan is a fine example of a game that manages to do everything wrong. It is a side-scrolling action title that, frankly, barely deserves to be called a game, as it succeeds in mangling every basic principle of gameplay, and ends up being nothing more than an endless button mashing routine in which the outcome is decided partially by luck and partially by your ability to not smash the cartridge into little pieces along the way.

Runes of Magic (PC)

Runes of Magic review (PC)

Reviewed on April 22, 2009

From first glance, the game defines itself as a generic fantasy MMORPG. It doesn't even try to disguise itself as anything truly unique, making clear that its basically everything you'd expect from the get-go. All the usual features are here, from the typical character classes (warrior, mage etc.), to an extensive creation myth that has no relevance to the quests or characters in-game.

PopCap Arcade Vol 2 (Xbox 360)

PopCap Arcade Vol 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on April 22, 2009

Packed with three games typical of PopCap's output over the last year or so, the compilation brings brings something to the table that should appeal to just about everyone. For those who are just jumping into the whole casual gaming thing, for those who haven't taken their Xbox 360 consoles online and even for your grandmother or little sister who has barely touched her Xbox 360 Elite since you bought it for her this past holiday, the time to sit up and take notice has officially arrived.

Sins of a Solar Empire – Entrenchment (PC)

Sins of a Solar Empire – Entrenchment review (PC)

Reviewed on April 21, 2009

Originally slated for release near the beginning of this year, Stardock wisely delayed this expansion and instead opened up beta testing to the community, allowing anyone who'd pre-ordered the game (such as myself) to contribute to development. The result is one of the most polished expansions I've seen in my many years of digital conquest, well-balanced and virtually bug-free upon official release.

Game Party (Wii)

Game Party review (WII)

Reviewed on April 20, 2009

Game Party is another minigame mashup for the Wii. It grafts simple motion control onto seven familiar activities, doing everything to ensure that anyone can pick it up and instantly understand the objective. Unfortunately, the remote doesn't provide flawless interaction, but Game Party fails on a more fundamental level. This “Ultimate Party Experience!”, supposedly a group attraction, generally accommodates only one person at a time. A single guy standing around while everyon...

Pass Your Driving Theory Test review (DS)

Reviewed on April 19, 2009

Gentlemen -- and ladies, if such a thing truly exists on the internet -- the times, they are a changin’. Somewhere along the line, someone decided that handheld consoles weren’t really meant as gaming machines anymore. And that someone was Nintendo.

Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360)

Resident Evil 5 review (X360)

Reviewed on April 19, 2009

It’s fine with me when the game starts to segue into cut scenes built right off the previous game’s frantic war against biological experiments gone wrong and hunting for brains, but it seems to go jarringly against what they tried to do with the last outing. For those of you out there who started the series at 4, prepare to be confused.

Wanted: Weapons of Fate (PlayStation 3)

Wanted: Weapons of Fate review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 19, 2009

Wanted: Weapons of Fate falls quite comfortably into the third-person shooter mold. You can run up to someone and gut him with a squishy-sounding thrust of your knife to his stomach or throat when it suits you, but most of your energy is reserved for the exchange of flying lead as you duck behind destructible bits of the environment and hope that your aim is good enough to wipe out all of the thugs that are gunning for you. If you let yourself run out of ammo, the game can get very frustrating as enemies stand two feet away and pelt you with bullets while you hug a wall that you're using for cover and fiddle with the camera. There's perhaps no sound more frightening than the echo of a hollow chamber when you expected a bang.

101-in-1 Explosive Megamix (DS)

101-in-1 Explosive Megamix review (DS)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

The Explosive Megamix offers up a variety of minigames – sheer volume compels it. Shooting hoops and throwing darts are normal. Reuniting star-crossed lovers by way of catapult is not. If you can find a dozen gems in this electic compilation, then the title is worth its price. The odds are in your favor.

Resident Evil 5 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 5 review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

Upon opening one door on their way to the rendezvous point, they encounter their first Ganado.....I mean Majini (same thing, different ethnicity). After blasting it to hell, it doesn't take long for our heroes to find themselves in deep doo-doo, as they get chased around the town by a horde of Majini led by a hulking chap wielding an executioner's axe. The main goal here, at least for a first-time player, is simply to survive long enough for a scripted event to kick in, allowing you to escape unscathed. In other words, it's the early-game village scene from RE 4 with a few minor tweaks.

Wheelman (PlayStation 3)

Wheelman review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

You'll have plenty of opportunities to go up against both gangsters and police as you tour Barcelona. Because Milo is a wheelman, many of the stages naturally involve a lot of interaction with other vehicles at high speeds. Besides leaping from ride to ride, you can stick to the one you currently have and use it like a battering ram. Much of the surrounding environment is more destructible than your current set of wheels, so you'll generally get to exchange a few bumps with your opponent as trees, motorcyclists and park benches fly to either side of your grill like hay swept away by a hurricane.

Gegege no Kitarou 2: Youkai Gundan no Chousen (NES)

Gegege no Kitarou 2: Youkai Gundan no Chousen review (NES)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

Gegege no Kitaro 2(GGG) starts as a simple quest to rescue your girlfriend, but you know how it is in RPGs. The scope gets bigger, and to get her back you have to banish a dragon-fellow named Kyubi Kitsune to save the world or, in this case, an island shaped a lot like Japan. Not that you have to know any Japanese history, or anything about the anime series Gegege stars in. You just cut down monsters, find items, and roam through cool underground caverns to get to places you're not quite suppose...

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

I have been told it is a known scientific fact that as people grow older, films and games tend to increase in greatness as time passes since the last play- through. So that logically, any criticism of newer Star- Wars titles for being vapid and shameless commercial offerings, just without the charm of the old ones, can be dismissed altogether. Either because the audience has now become mature and is no longer enticed by the simplistic plots that never were very good to begin with. Or because the...

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. (PlayStation 3)

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 17, 2009

Though you may tweak the controls with various assistance features to curb instability, the game never feels right. For the first few hours, you will battle the controls more than the enemy. Funnily enough, the enemies are easy – so easy that there are missions where you’ll spend more time staring at the radar (to locate enemies) than the actual stage. Most enemies can be taken out in two simple steps: (1) lock-on and (2) fire a missile. To increase your success rate, fire two missiles at the same time.

Tokyo Beat Down (DS)

Tokyo Beat Down review (DS)

Reviewed on April 16, 2009

What Tokyo Beat Down does right is all in its script. Developer Success and localizer Atlus know they’re working in a genre filled with clichés and Lewis Cannon’s every word and interaction with NPCs reflects this. They go so far as to name the NPCs things like "Cop who is providing back story" and "guy who is about to get beat up.” There are even multiple endings, and it's to the writer's credit that I'm curious to see what they are and what plot elements they reveal. Unfortunately, you couldn't pay me to play through again.

System Shock 2 (PC)

System Shock 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on April 16, 2009

You could talk for hours about the way System Shock 2 plays - the way its controls feel so human, the way every action has a tangible weight, and the way its many optional approaches are so finely balanced from start to finish - and still not really approach why it's one of gaming's exemplary moments. The shiningly perfect mechanics keep things plodding along nicely, sure, but it's all rather incongruent to the meat and bones of this miraculous FPS/RPG. This is background materia...
