Mega Man (NES)

Mega Man review (NES)

Reviewed on October 07, 2008

Despite the popular notion that the Mega Man series never evolved (or became more “intelligently designed”) as it progressed, the series actually underwent many fundamental changes in its early NES installments. While the differences between the first Mega Man and Mega Man 6 are pretty blatant, even the refinement that took place between MM1 and MM2 or MM3 and MM4 cannot be overstated. Anyone that has played these games over and over (and over)...

Koudelka (PlayStation)

Koudelka review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 07, 2008

The great thing about Koudelka is the atmosphere and storyline. This is not your typical Japanese RPG with cheery graphics and a cutesy storyline with a bunch of children. This game takes place in a haunted castle in 1898, and you control three characters who not only are adults, but also very mature. It's nice to see that in a RPG for a change. There's also a bunch of great scenes as you really get to see the characters develop, and the main villain is up there with Eve from the Parasite Eve ga...

Red Bull BC One (DS)

Red Bull BC One review (DS)

Reviewed on October 06, 2008

Even if the simple gameplay were tweaked to its maximum amount of enjoyment, no link is established to the main attraction: breakdancing. Sure, if I refrain from moving the stylus, my tiny dancer will passively bob to a generic beat. And when I complete a shape, his silhouette in the background pulls off some random move in sync with his full figure up on the top screen. But I don't see how my triangles, pentagons, and dodecahedrons specifically translate into coin drops, belly swims, or airchairs.

Galactic Civilizations II: Endless Universe (PC)

Galactic Civilizations II: Endless Universe review (PC)

Reviewed on October 06, 2008

his means that anyone who has touched anything resembling a turn-based strategy before will easily pick it up but the simple setting change doesn't make the game good. Its kind of like how many people say that Firefly was just a Western for Star Trek fans. Except Firefly had Nathan Fillion. And was entertaining.

Thief: Deadly Shadows (PC)

Thief: Deadly Shadows review (PC)

Reviewed on October 05, 2008

Does a game lose worth for providing too much of a challenge? Forcing the player into a routine of patience in order to beat its difficulty is the very crux of the Thief franchise, so it seems a little unfair to berate an admittedly well-crafted videogame for this reason.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner (PlayStation 2)

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 04, 2008

Giant robot games bore me. While a handful are good, especially the tough-as-nails sidescroller Assault Suit Leynos 2 and the well streamlined MechAssault, the vast majority of them bog themselves down in too many mechanics to be of any amusement. The Armored Core series, for instance, allows you to customize everything from your mech's engine style to the color of its vomit, but the feature goes to waste in light of the titles' lumbering, prosaic combat. Most of these...

Virtua Fighter CG Portrait Series Vol. 9: Kage Maru review (SAT)

Dear friends, I am about to admit something that I’m sure no one will forgive me for. It’s something I should have known about for ages, but sadly, I did not, thanks to my restricted knowledge of video games a child.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura review (PC)

Reviewed on October 01, 2008

Imagination is a very powerful tool we often take for granted. For instance, can you imagine yourself something of a hero in a world where technology and magic mix? Can you picture yourself being the one who decides the fate of the world with every single action you take, be it for evil or for good? Do you ever show interest in discovering a conspiracy involving high ranking politicians running a rape-farm that breeds ogre slaves? If the answer to any of these questions is affirmative, then let ...

New International Track & Field (DS)

New International Track & Field review (DS)

Reviewed on September 30, 2008

Any year with the Olympic Games is a good year for Olympic games. At least, that seems to be the idea behind New International Track and Field, A DS facelift of Konami's old Track and Field franchise. After lying dormant for eight years, the game made a sudden reappearance now that there were coat tails to ride on, namely those of Beijing. But do they really need an excuse to make another minigame compilation for the DS?

Mass Effect (PC)

Mass Effect review (PC)

Reviewed on September 29, 2008

I don't think I've played a game with this much all-round polish since Half-Life 2. Mass Effect simply sparkles, overflowing with cinematic sci-fi design, brimming with utter, undebatable confidence in its approach. It's about as close to an interactive movie as the medium has come, but it's absolutely a videogame, and makes no bones about it. It’s full of cut-scenes, boss battles and, at heart, complete linearity, but it's so much more than that. Mass Effect, despite on the surface being an impressive rehash of Star Wars, is one of the most atmospheric and involving games I've ever played...

Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions (DS)

Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions review (DS)

Reviewed on September 28, 2008

I’ll be honest; I had it all planned out in my head before the cart was even in the DS. We all already know what Mahjong is, so I’d joke about having to met a word quota, throw in an obligatory and basic description on how the ancient Chinese tile-matching game worked then be all flippant while I padded the rest of the review out. Mah Jong Quest: Expeditions foils my plan by not being just another tile flipper aided by stylus prodding.

Jewel Quest: Expeditions review (DS)

Reviewed on September 28, 2008

Familiar because it’s been seen before. Familiar because there are fourteen puzzle games released on the DS for any other genre and familiar because Jewel Quest has already been seen on XBLA and won the internet over when initially released by IWin.com online. Familiar doesn’t always mean bad.

Final Fight (Arcade)

Final Fight review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 27, 2008

I don't spend nearly enough time with beat-em-ups and I'm probably a worse person for it, but even I love Final Fight. Then again, everybody loves Final Fight. It's just one of those ideas that's perfect, even on paper. You and a friend choose ripped city mayor Haggar, ninja Guy, or generic white dude Cody and take to the streets, smashing your way through the population of a small nation. What's not to love? What more could you need?

Castle Crashers (Xbox 360)

Castle Crashers review (X360)

Reviewed on September 27, 2008

Castle Crashers begins with your knight of choice doing what knights do best: rocking out. Of course, not all goes to plan when a nerfarious wizard busts on the scene, stealing the castle's magical crystal and running off with the hot maidens. And so it's up to you, as one of 4 colourful knights to set out on a quest to get them back and kick some evil wizard ass.

Disgaea DS (DS)

Disgaea DS review (DS)

Reviewed on September 27, 2008

When I heard that Atlus/Nippon Ichi had decided to port the first Disgaea to the DS, I was shocked. For one thing, they’d already ported it to the PSP and had hinted at the port being a PSP exclusive. For a second, there was no way the DS’s extremely limited hardware could ever hope to run a game that was originally for the PS2, even if it came nowhere close to stretching the PS2’s hardware limits. What Atlus delivered was a bad port of a good game.

Bad Dudes (NES)

Bad Dudes review (NES)

Reviewed on September 27, 2008

Bosses are tough and require great timing and patience to defeat. Having a weapon only increases the likelihood of survival, since it has a superior reach and deals significantly more damage than most of your traditional unarmed combinations. Some bosses are literally impossible to kill without one.
