ICO review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 21, 2008

Though intimacy between individuals is one of the most important experiences of the human condition, video games have remained understandably silent on the subject. When attempting to mimic the narrative techniques of films, video games can only come so far – evoking real attachment to polygonal actors is an enormous feat, and one in which most games comically fail. In addition, there are so many negative, misunderstood (cf. Mass Effect on Fox News), and downright misogynist representat...

Spellforce Universe (PC)

Spellforce Universe review (PC)

Reviewed on June 21, 2008

It's hard to dispute the value of Spellforce Universe. The world is nearly endless, with many MANY locations to see, and an amount of lore that would fill a mighty tome. Quests come in piles to rival those of bodies left in your wake. For every flaw, there's a strength to hold it up, and a reason to persevere. Whether your goal is to see the next story, or see the next character ability, the game has something for you. After all, there's an entire universe awaiting.

Summon Night: Twin Age (DS)

Summon Night: Twin Age review (DS)

Reviewed on June 21, 2008

Even the concern that she'll run out of magic is nullified by a skill that allows her to regenerate it on the fly—only a few seconds of charging are required, which is inconvenient but generally not lethal thanks to the invulnerability—meaning that once you progress to a certain point you won't even have to worry about purchasing restorative items. Comrades slain will revive themselves after a bit, as well, so if you're reduced to just Reiha you can play tag until the situation improves, or even stand next to the enemy repeatedly using skills so that it can't hurt you.

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

A pivotal thing happens at the end of the first disc of Final Fantasy VII: Aeris, a central character, is killed by the main villain, who evidently falls out of the sky or something. Such a reveal might be labeled as a major spoiler by some, but seeing as how it’s likely the most widely known plot development of any video game in history amongst the gaming community… Well, if you didn’t know about it, you probably don’t belong on a site like this in the first place.

SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 (PSP)

SNK Arcade Classics: Vol. 1 review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

Magician Lord is still gorgeous. Its backdrops are utterly otherworldly; its foregrounds brim with fantasy book life. Long-armed, bipedal beasts and gaggles of skeletons patrol the outer realms framed by unearthly mountain range and sky. Leap-deterring, hovering spheres; amorphous, wall-hugging gelatin; and spinning eyeballs actually seem alien -- not your garden variety projectile-spitters.

The World Ends with You (DS)

The World Ends with You review (DS)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

The Game is dangerous. The Game is bizarre. The Game is insanely difficult. Fail to complete The Game and it'll be the last thing you ever fail to do. I don't mean this game, The World Ends With You, I mean The Game. Our protagonist, an anti-social, lonely people-hater, Neku, is somehow thrown into this Game and is told that he must complete the mission or face erasure. In a strange but fascinating, fast-paced opening, you find yourself linking up with a partner in order to defeat ...

Ys III: Wanderers From Ys (Turbografx-CD)

Ys III: Wanderers From Ys review (TGCD)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

In the world of gaming, there's always been one thing that I've noticed: nearly every series seems to have a black sheep of sorts, hated among the masses because of how different it is. Where would the gaming world be without Super Mario 2, Zelda II, and according to a large chunk of the HG userbase, the entire Metal Gear Solid series? Even my eternally-adored action RPG series Ys has been unable to escape such a fate. Where the first two Ys games featured swe...

Taboo: The Sixth Sense (NES)

Taboo: The Sixth Sense review (NES)

Reviewed on June 19, 2008

Despite bearing Nintendo’s protective Seal of Quality, Taboo was clearly hewn from naught but the crimson hand of Satan himself – and believe me, I know a thing or two about Satan.

Lemmings review (PC)

Reviewed on June 18, 2008

It’s quite hard to appreciate retro classics these days without actually being there at the time, especially when coming to grips with torrid graphics and dubious bleeps claiming to be music. But in this case, it’s ironic that a game I absolutely loved as a kid fails to satisfy much nostalgia. With this being a serious keystone in gaming, being ported on every computer, console and handheld up to the PlayStation, it’s hard to pin down my dissatisfaction. Maybe it’s the fact I played this game to...

Castle of Shikigami III (Wii)

Castle of Shikigami III review (WII)

Reviewed on June 18, 2008

Alcaland is in trouble. In danger of being wiped of the face of the map, in fact. Not from war or pestilence or anything you might expect; up until now, the country has been thriving under its monarchy. No, this crisis is beyond the constraints of human comprehension. The legendary Swan Castle has reappeared in the skies, blotting out the sun and is now slowly descending onto the helpless populace. Thousands of people have suddenly vanished with the return of this ancient behemoth, and there’s n...

Time Soldiers (Arcade)

Time Soldiers review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 17, 2008

Unfortunately, every Time Soldiers triumph is canceled out by a flaw. If you don't know what you're doing, you'll find yourself repeating some areas more times than you'd care to count. That's because there are frequent warp points between the different time periods. So if you're trying to clear one zone and it's not the one you were instructed to explore, the game will let you go on your merry way... but no boss will ever appear and you'll just keep cycling through useless terrain until you catch onto your mistake and hop the next portal to a different setting.

Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on June 16, 2008

This is no time for ridiculously cheesy monologues – there’s a body upstairs suffering from a serious case of lead poisoning and Chicago’s finest are already out for your head, assuming what’s left of your brain doesn’t do itself in first.

Space Invaders Extreme (DS)

Space Invaders Extreme review (DS)

Reviewed on June 16, 2008

We should have seen this coming. It was inevitable, really. Despite all the bloody battles and hard-earned victories, the human race was never really safe. Not from these things, anyway. No matter how many of them you kill, there will always be more of them. Wave after pixilated wave of spaceships are now wandering the skies, descending ever so slowly like a waterfall in slow motion. There is no water here, though; these bastards are dishing out laser beams, bullets, missiles, and whatever else ...

Ninja Gaiden II (Xbox 360)

Ninja Gaiden II review (X360)

Reviewed on June 16, 2008

2004 saw the rebirth of the Ninja Gaiden franchise on the Xbox, Team Ninja setting a new benchmark for the action-adventure genre in the process. Four years later and Ninja Gaiden II hasn’t had quite the same groundbreaking impact as its predecessor. It doesn’t have the same visual kick as the first game did in ’04 and it lacks the same level of polish, but rest assured it provides all the sword-swinging, blood-bathed action you’ve come to expect from Itagaki-san and company.

P.O.W.: Prisoners of War (Arcade)

P.O.W.: Prisoners of War review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 16, 2008

I refuse to mince words. P.O.W. Prisoners of War is a game so fucking awful even the genre’s staunchest supporter cannot point to a redeeming snippet. Double Dragon 3 had some kitsch. Mug Smashers had some unintended humor. Even Street Smart – unsurprisingly, another SNK disaster – wasn’t this much of a miserable abomination; it at least had the courtesy to not drag out for this long.

Gears of War (Xbox 360)

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on June 15, 2008

Gears of War is simultaneously excellent and flawed. It’s far from perfect, and yet it feels so close. The game is filled with unrelenting excellence, and perhaps that’s why the very real problems seem to detract so little from the big picture. Maybe by the end of the review, you’ll see what I mean.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (Xbox 360)

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on June 14, 2008

For a few of us, the end of Rainbow Six: Vegas left a bad taste in the mouth; a sudden cliff hanger that provided little satisfaction or resolution. For everyone else, it was just a side commentary to combine smoldering action set pieces together, or was forgotten altogether due to the compelling multiplayer. In either case, it was an excuse for a sequel; one that is not quite a fully fledged evolution of the franchise, or something that could have simply add-on content either.

Splatterhouse review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 14, 2008

I didn't think I'd be smacking rotting zombies to death with their own limbs or smashing corpses hung from nooses like macabre pińatas wide open with axes. When a disturbing individual with a cloth bag tied over its head assaulted me with twin chainsaws where its hands should have be, it gave me quite a start. This was an arcade cabinet set next door the The Simpson's brawler; kids were watching!

Roogoo review (X360)

Reviewed on June 14, 2008

It’s an extremely simple concept, but it has an addictive quality to it and is easily accessible for the hardcore and casuals. As you progress through the forty-five single-player levels, various obstacles are introduced to makes things a little more challenging.

Road Avenger (Sega CD)

Road Avenger review (SCD)

Reviewed on June 13, 2008

Road Avenger isn’t just Wolf Team’s finest laserdisc conversion, it’s clearly the greatest FMV game on Sega CD and the best damn thing Data East was ever responsible for in their long and largely mediocre history! Maybe those last two aren’t exactly what you’d call ringing endorsements, but rest assured that from the moment you boot up this bad boy you’re in for naught but burning hot AWESOME.
