Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly (PlayStation 2)

Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

Oh Spyro. How unfortunate such a franchise suffered a fate that parallels with the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog and Crash Bandicoot. Once good on its console of origin, but a step up on to following platforms and he’s lost his sense of what he was. Yet despite their console mediocrity, they seemed to get it right on portable formats with relatively pleasing results.

Half-Life: Opposing Force (PC)

Half-Life: Opposing Force review (PC)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

1998’s Half-life was seen by many as revolutionary to the FPS genre from its atmospheric feel, the first person presentation of the story and it’s astounding gameplay. Since then, dozens of mods spawned from its engine such as Counter-Strike, plus expansions like this and 2001’s Blue Shift. Half-Life: Opposing Force intervenes with the original HL’s plot, playing the role of US Marine Corporal Adrian Shepherd. As part of the Black Mesa clean-up crew, you must s...

RollerCoaster Tycoon review (PC)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

Chris Sawyer has been no stranger to management games in the 90’s, single-handedly programming Transport Tycoon before his White Knuckle project, eventually renamed Rollercoaster Tycoon. Various expansions and sequels followed, the third seeing a shift to full-on 3D and ending Sawyer’s exclusive development, but this original RCT remains as strong as ever. You’re simply building theme parks with a large emphasis on constructing your own custom rollercoasters. Swanky c...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PlayStation 2)

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

The character imbalance may irk some fans but doesn't actually make the game less fun, and for the most part Persona 4 has its own identity, plot, and tone wholly independent of Persona 3's. Given what a massively influential title Persona 3 was, and how easy it would've been to make the entirety of Persona 4 about reminding you how much you liked Persona 3, the fact that Persona 4 is an actual interesting game in its own right is really a bit extraordinary.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Xbox 360)

Sonic the Hedgehog review (X360)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

Sonic The Hedgehog has been run into the ground by his creators as fast as he once ran along it. That was not a retrospective comment about recent Sonic games generally, that was a comment about Sonic '06, referred to as such to prevent any of the following comments from being associated with the original Sonic the Hedgehog, a memory Sonic fans must cling to now more than ever.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

I once demonstrated Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 to a person (you all know someone like this) who has no knowledge, let alone experience, of games, who still is unconvinced that they constitute anything more than toys for overgrown children. After the initial realization that there was actually a game in progress under all the flashing lights and loud noises, his first actual comment was, and I quote; "this looks very playable." I think if the phone hadn't rang immediately afterward he may eve...

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 06, 2008

What do you hate about yourself? Come on, be honest. Or are you too ashamed to admit anything? Perhaps you’re not even aware of it. It’s those perceived flaws, those nagging insecurities that can drive a person mad. Maybe you’re afraid of failure, that everything you do in life will ultimately amount to nothing. How about the resentment or jealously you might feel towards someone more successful than you are? A close friend you keep around to satisfy your sense of self-worth and need for accepta...

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance (Game Boy Advance)

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 04, 2008

Adding to the intrigue, a couple of meetings with Dracula's top subordinate, Death, seem to show that the grim reaper seems more than a bit confused as to what's going on and why his master's castle even returned. Fortunately for Juste, the instant Death figures everything out, he tells the Belmont everything in a fit of excessive gloating, which eventually leads to the endgame and (if you meet certain stipulations) happy ending. And Dracula keeps this guy on staff for what reason?

Disney's Kim Possible: Kimmunicator (DS)

Disney's Kim Possible: Kimmunicator review (DS)

Reviewed on December 04, 2008

Kim can punch and kick, stringing together ‘combos’ of each attack simply through button mashing. But there are major issues with responsiveness and hit-detection. Sometimes Kim simply will not attack though you think you might be pressing the right button, and other times Kim's punch or kick will execute but miss completely when it appears that it shouldn’t. But you needn’t worry too much; enemy encounters are few and far between. It seems as if there are maybe four enemies in each stage. I’m exaggerating, but not much.

SpongeBob SquarePants featuring Nicktoons: Globs of Doom review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 04, 2008

It‘s not perfect, but Globs of Doom provides a well-crafted, fun experience for younger players. Older gamers may find small portions of the game enjoyable, but will likely find that the main game’s lean gameplay wears thin quickly.

Mega Man Soccer (SNES)

Mega Man Soccer review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 03, 2008

When one used to think of a gaming franchise, such as Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros, chances are that the first things that will come into their mind is Mario’s adventures against Bowser. But now with all of the Mario games released not related to the original series, such as Super Mario Kart and Mario Golf, one might not necessarily think of those adventures, but of some other event that he participated in.

Kirby's Dream Land 3 (SNES)

Kirby's Dream Land 3 review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 03, 2008

Although not with plenty of flaws, Kirby Super Star was a giant step in the right direction. Having several moves at your disposal that varied with each power and combining multiple styles of gameplay was much better than the previous aging Kirby formula. The game was only slightly above average, but at least there seemed to be some life in the Kirby series.

Out to Lunch review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 03, 2008

Although most of my gaming time is spent playing manly Xbox and PC titles, I have played several messed up games over the years. In the matter of fact The Lost Vikings, a puzzle game starring three goofy Viking misfits is one of my favorite SNES games. Marsupilami for the Sega Genesis is another weird game that I would’ve loved if it wasn’t for a few annoying problems. But these games are nothing compared to Out to Lunch, which is easily the weirdest game I’ve ever played....

The Lost Vikings (SNES)

The Lost Vikings review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 03, 2008

Vikings were known for a lot of things such as farming, trading, and exploring, but the trait they are best known for was their brutality. They were fierce warriors that were feared by almost everyone due to their unpredictable raids and Pagan beliefs (the beliefs weren’t popular at the time in an almost entirely Christian Europe). Since videogames that contain a lot of hack and slash action always seemed to be selling very well, I am very surprised that there are very few games, if any that s...

Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 2 review (WII)

Reviewed on December 02, 2008

The game heavily touts its original storyline, which was written exclusively for this North American release. It's supposed to feature two newly created members of the Anbu, the traditionally anonymous black ops squad serving Naruto's Hidden Leaf Village. But like a good substitution jutsu, that's an effective bit of misdirection.

And then the hedonistic binge called recruiting begins. You'll be confronted by a map of the United States. Clicking on any state will give you the list of all the potential recruits residing there. Or, to simply things, you can go to a menu to give you more focused lists such as those kids ranked in the nation's elite players, those from your school's state or those who initially have some degree of interest in you.

Here, all you need to is run through a virtual checklist of tasks that keeps your horsie happy, then put the bugger to work to earn more cash which gets swallowed up by further investing in the original checklist. And that’s it.

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 01, 2008

What a surprise. With another portable console by Nintendo come more excuses for them to remake Mario games released on their home consoles with similar hardware specs. With the DS effectively being the portable equivalent of the N64, it’s inevitable we’d see a DS remake of Super Mario 64. But the challenge here was how to grind out some use from that second screen.

Legendary (PlayStation 3)

Legendary review (PS3)

Reviewed on December 01, 2008

The story of Legendary is undeniably shoddy, a fact that becomes all the more apparent when Spark Unlimited insists on shoving it in your face with boring cut-scenes before each mission, done in the still frame style of Resistance: Fall of Man, as if insisting that they are clever and modern. To further rip off that game, the cut-scenes are narrated by a woman with a gimmicky British accent. It doesn't help that Spark Unlimited managed to do the impossible and have graphical glitches in its still-shots. Each of these slideshows is riddled with lag and choppiness. I'm not sure how they accomplished that.
