Daze Before Christmas (Genesis)

Daze Before Christmas review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 29, 2008

After a long and busy day of Christmas shopping I was absolutely exhausted. I was running all over the place looking for everything that everyone wanted, so when I came hope I was broke, tired, and needed to relax. Naturally I decided to download (OMG ILLEGAL) Daze Before Christmas to hopefully keep my mind on the positive aspects of Christmas and why the holiday is so freakin’ great

Hatris (TurboGrafx-16)

Hatris review (TG16)

Reviewed on November 27, 2008

You are Alexey Pajitnov. Perhaps the name rings a bell. You've just created Tetris, the mega-hit puzzle game that has sparked legal battles across the globe over licensing rights and taken both eastern and western audiences by storm. Atari wants you. Nintendo wants you. But luckily for you, you haven't had to worry yourself with any of that trouble; your government has it all under control. Phew! I bet the check is in the mail already. Regardless, your career has skyrocketed overnight. One minute you're an unheard of computer engineer toiling away in the Soviet Union. The next you're being mentioned in the same breath as Miyamoto and Bushnell as a who's who in the video game world... as you toil away in the Soviet Union.

Mega Man 9 (PlayStation 3)

Mega Man 9 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

After finally obtaining a “next generation” gaming system media center (?), it seemed prudent that I should make an effort to experience the best that my new PS3's cell processor could muster. I wanted to make a point to experience a game that was technically beautiful and fresh from all the genre-centric titles that had dominated the previous generation. In that spirit, I purchased Valkyria Chronicles.

Mouse Trap (Atari 2600)

Mouse Trap review (A2600)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

I'm not sure why the mouse looks so happy, all things considered, as a number of (possibly starving) felines patrol the corridors of the maze. Working in the mouse's favor were a few dog biscuits, which would turn it into a dog that could rip through the cats like me through a Thanksgiving turkey drumstick, sending them back to their cages � much like Pac-Man could do to ghosts.

Pokemon Red (Game Boy)

Pokemon Red review (GB)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

But it doesn't have to be Mankey; it could be Ratatta. It could be Nidoran. It could be Pidgey, or Pikachu, or Geodude. There is a tendency for the Pokemon you start with to become one of your strongest, but it's not a necessity, and any Pokemon can eventually be beneficial to your six member team. Moreover, you can have well over six Pokemon; you can only carry six with you to use in battle, while the others are stored remotely and recalled from the Pokemon Centers.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell left me in awe. When it was released it was easily the best stealth game, and although it had a few shortcomings, its awesome aspects more than made up for them. The idea of stealth and using your environments had never been used this effectively, and I can still recall some of the awesome situations the game put you in. I remember creeping in the dark sewers trying to follow guards unaware of my presence, cutting through a courtyard filled with mines and sni...

Rampage Through Time (PlayStation)

Rampage Through Time review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

Imagine controlling a giant mutant. You move carelessly from city to city, destroying buildings, eating people, and kicking over cars. The military and police department are both out to stop you, but you won’t let them stand in your way. You continue to “rampage” from city to city, causing as much chaos and destruction as possible with hopes of someday destroying the whole world.

Disgaea DS (DS)

Disgaea DS review (DS)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

It's this trio that quickly become the driving force of Disgaa, be it through Etna's constant sadistic mocking every time Laharl makes a mistake or Flonne's unflagging insistence that both of her new demon friends are basically good people underneath all the mindless slaughtering and evil cackling. Such is the force behind the threesome's interactions that it's all too easy to forget that there's a competent strategy game lurking between all the comic capering.

Space Invaders (Nintendo 64)

Space Invaders review (N64)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

No shooter formula is more archaic. No shooter formula holds such nostalgia either. Space Invaders has been a simple concept since its first appearance in the arcades of the late 1970s, a classic dance with death from above. The aliens descend with uniformity and precision, swaying to surface level as a trained squadron with no intention to deviate from the plan. It will work. They believe. Down below dissonance breaks their harmonious, synchronized descent; one lone Earth pilot desperately fires blasts skywards from his roving craft, shifting left and right with the pack, dodging sporadic projectiles and wreaking havoc on their ranks. Will it be enough?

Bejeweled Twist (PC)

Bejeweled Twist review (PC)

Reviewed on November 26, 2008

As always, the basic goal is to clear three panels adjacent panels of a particular color: red, yellow, blue, green, white, orange or purple. Previously this was accomplished by moving a single piece through the grid, swapping out as you went. That mechanic is gone now. Instead, you move a circular patch over the field, position it wherever you think is best, then set a 'twist' into motion. This will cause the four pieces caught within that patch to turn clockwise a single quarter of a rotation. At that point, three or more connected panels will vanish and possibly even set a chain reaction in motion (if you were particularly clever).

Guitar Hero: On Tour (DS)

Guitar Hero: On Tour review (DS)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

Creating a game multiplatform is one way for a publisher to sit on the fence by selling as many titles as possible without taking the risk of developing for the losing console. When multiplatform games appear on every active format available, you can’t help but think the publisher (*cough*EA*cough*) are trying to milk the franchise a touch. But when we’re talking a multiplatform attempt to downsize a peripheral based game in which the controller isn’t exactly handheld, a la Guitar Hero, s...

Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff isn't just a distant descendant of Tecmo Super Bowl; it's a reincarnation. Recognizable names are the sole component that died for good.

The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft review (PC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

To find the whole truth behind The Hidden Theft, the Hardy Boys must scour the town for clues, interview all the witnesses, and continuously think outside the box. But before the journey can begin, the pair has to get past Mom. She grounded them.

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House (PC)

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House review (PC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

Peril at End House is another of those “search and find” experiences so reminiscent of the puzzles in old issues of Highlights for Children. You're presented with a list of objects, then must locate them by carefully poring over a cluttered photograph. Within the context of this particular game, that simple approach actually works fairly well. It's easy to imagine a stereotypical sleuth doing the same thing with a magnifying glass in hand.

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (PlayStation 3)

Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 24, 2008

The result is something that feels more like an old-fashioned fighter and less like a grim SoulCalibur clone with too many characters. Instead of a cluttered roster, you'll be asked to choose from the distinct likes of Kano, Baraka, Sonya and Jax. Each utilizes vaguely familiar moves that haven't really been prominent in the series for quite some time. Seeing them executed regularly here is enough to bring a nostalgic tear to the eye. More importantly, it adds to the impact of seeing Sub-Zero square off against Batman. Such a conflict would feel like nothing more than a cosplay convention if they were hauling around generic swords, but instead you'll see them battle it out in exactly the manner you'd expect.

FIFA Soccer 09 (PC)

FIFA Soccer 09 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 23, 2008

Annually updated for pretty much as long as I can remember, it's always sat a little behind the Pro Evolution series in capturing what makes this most godlike of sports so magical. This year's – or, if you go by the date, next year's - update inches ever closer to realising its dream, but once again falls just short of the mark in a few areas.

Cooking Mama: World Kitchen (Wii)

Cooking Mama: World Kitchen review (WII)

Reviewed on November 23, 2008

The real problem is a lack of consistency. A horizontal arrow might mean just a quick little shuffle for one task, while in another situation a huge sweep is mandatory. You just never know until you've tried a few times and gotten the hang of that individual process. The amount of trial-and-error here is staggering and each new complication is cause for trepidation rather than excitement. You can eventually overcome such obstacles, but the hassle involved isn't pleasant at all. This is supposed to be fun, not a chore!

The 3D Battles of World Runner (NES)

The 3D Battles of World Runner review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2008

3D World Runner is best for killing an hour while waiting for your next class or thinking of something to do. It’s fun for a while, but grows old quickly as you realize you’re encountering the same enemies and jumping the same gaps, just with occasional tweaks to make it more challenging.

Last King of Africa (DS)

Last King of Africa review (DS)

Reviewed on November 22, 2008

I>Last King of Africa is like a Best Of album that does away with all the tracks that never really worked and exist only to bolster the self-esteem of the band, keeps everything that did well enough in the singles chart to indicate the fan base’s enjoyment, then transfers it from vinyl to CD.
