PaRappa the Rapper (PlayStation)

PaRappa the Rapper review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 21, 2008

So just imagine being back in the year is 1995, when you’ve just seen the PlayStation in action hot off the production line, and seen the likes Ridge Racer in action. You probably imagined how the wonders of 3D could translate into all your favourite genres, such as shooting, realistic sports and maybe action games, all later to become cookie-cutter genres on the format. At what point would you have imagined playing a game involving a 2D hip-hop rapping dog, who tries to impress a sunflower face...

Hard to Be a God (PC)

Hard to Be a God review (PC)

Reviewed on March 21, 2008

In essence, the game's opening moments establish the framework for many a glorious battle to come, while apparently forsaking plot entirely. And the ensuing horse ride to meet your informant are filled with thoughts of future glory. But then, something strange happens. Glimmers of a plot start to surface. Clandestine maneuvers are made. Backstabbing occurs, and it's presented in a way that compels one to care.

Puchi Puchi Virus (DS)

Puchi Puchi Virus review (DS)

Reviewed on March 20, 2008

Of course, let's also not forget the fact that swiping the stylus around the screen in a flurry of quick pokes is likely to lead to some moments where you can't see much because your hand or wrist is briefly in the way. You'd think the developers would account for the natural phenomenon of non-transparent limbs, but they didn't. Indeed, they did quite the opposite; not only do viruses soon congeal too quickly, but they also move.

El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera (PlayStation 2)

El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 20, 2008

I say that because there's simply not much reason to play through the adventure multiple times. There aren't any hidden items to scrounge up, there aren't any alternate routes and there aren't even any particularly memorable moments throughout the whole affair. You can choose to play through as either Frida or Black Cuervo, as mentioned on the back of the box, but they both control identically and the option doesn't add anything to the experience.

Lost Odyssey (Xbox 360)

Lost Odyssey review (X360)

Reviewed on March 20, 2008

The endless flow of time is a harsh master to us all. Its relentless nature makes every second of life precious because, ultimately, every second that goes by takes us closer to death. So imagine if you weren't constrained by this eternal force. Imagine if you were blessed with a life that never ends. Free you may be from the limits of mortality, but truly, is the gift of eternal life a blessing or a curse? Lost Odyssey tells the tale of such a man, the tale of Kaim Argonar and his quest to rega...

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds (PlayStation 3)

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 19, 2008

Quite simply, you stand a better chance of knocking the ball out of the sand trap and managing an unlikely chip-in than you do engineering a successful putt from more than 4 feet (and yes, almost every putt you ever have cause to attempt will exceed that 4-foot distance). For starters, the on-screen indicators are wretched. The grid that you've become accustomed to in similar games is present, but its elements are too small to be of use.

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection (Wii)

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection review (WII)

Reviewed on March 19, 2008

The control scheme is pure perfection. Controlling the flippers means holding the Nunchuck device in your left hand and squeezing the 'Z' trigger to move that paddle, while holding the Wii Remote in your right hand and squeezing the trigger. The effect is that you almost feel as if you're hunched over an actual pinball table.

Lost: Via Domus (PC)

Lost: Via Domus review (PC)

Reviewed on March 18, 2008

Lost is without a doubt my favorite television show. It's one of the only shows that I make sure to watch weekly, so when Ubisoft revealed that they were developing a game based on the series, I was instantly intrigued. Details were scarce, but I followed the game to release with unbridled excitement and anticipation. I try not to let myself get too caught up in my own expectations, but I was willing to make exceptions because it was Lost after all.

God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP)

God of War: Chains of Olympus review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 18, 2008

Chains of Olympus is a handheld version of the PS2 God of War games. But don’t be fooled: it wants desperately to not be a handheld game. In the transition from DVD9 to a 1.8GB UMD, nothing has been lost as far as gameplay is concerned. Content? Replay value? That’s another story. But as a technical achievement, you’d be hard-pressed to find any handheld game with production values this high. All of the over-the-top action of the PS2 games is here, as is their superb visuals and orchestral sound...

Baten Kaitos Origins (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos Origins review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 16, 2008

Baten Kaitos Origins takes place two decades before the events of Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. As such, it features a whole new cast of main characters. Sagi is the sympathetic orphan, striking out to support his adoptive family. Guillo is his lifelong companion, a mysterious puppet with two timbres of voice and gaudy fashion sense; it tromps around in high heals. Milliarde is an aristocrat who cannot bear to see the feeble punished, and in her estimation, Sa...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

Super Smash Bros. Brawl review (WII)

Reviewed on March 15, 2008

You need to be a Nintendo fan to enjoy Smash Bros. The entire appeal is playing as all those characters from your childhood you’re nostalgic for. I’ve tried playing Brawl with people who’d never played Zelda or Metroid or Kirby, and all I got was a bunch of bored shrugs. But if you have three friends who are interested, the offline multiplayer is some of the most fun you’ll ever have with a fighting game. Notice how I stress “offline multiplayer”, as the single-player game is dull, and the much-...

Star Control 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on March 15, 2008

In a Bargain Bin somewhere I cannot remember, a copy of 'Star Control 3' was sitting idly. The box looked nice and the price was cheap, so I bought it even though I had never heard of it.

One Piece: Unlimited Adventure (Wii)

One Piece: Unlimited Adventure review (WII)

Reviewed on March 14, 2008

As you wander throughout the island, you'll come across all sorts of 'ingredients' that can be taken back to camp and turned into useful items. For example, you might hack down some scraggly trees to acquire lumber, or slash at low-hanging vines to obtain a vine rope. That's neat, except that you must backtrack to camp to do anything with your goodies except convert them to magical energy. This requirement gets old quickly, especially if in the process you forget where you were on your to-do list.

Dinosaurs don’t need help to be scary. They’re stronger, faster, more resilient, and better hunters than you’ll ever be. That leaves one, powerful weapon that many FPSs frequently ignore – wits.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel (Game Boy Advance)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 13, 2008

Yu-Gi-Oh; a Japanese card game that became popular across the globe, had a hit anime TV series and has had various games based on it now makes its way onto the GBA. Stairway to the Destined Duel keeps faithful to the card game and requires you to duke it out against various opponents with cards that have pictures of monsters on them. While the game will keep the hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh fan happy, it will do little to entertain those who have never played the card game before.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure (Game Boy Advance)

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 13, 2008

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure is Crash's debut on a handheld console and it's a great start. The game keeps to the tried and tested, but highly successful method, of basic platforming mixed in with addictive gameplay, and a ton of collectables. Throughout the game you will see familiar faces and the great level design that made the series stand out from the rest.

Shinobi Legions (Saturn)

Shinobi Legions review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 12, 2008

Shinobi III was an awesome ninja game, most likely the best ninja game of the 90s. You had a really flexible ninja, which made attacking your enemies easy once you master his moves. Though, that didn't mean the game itself was gonna be a breeze to go through. You were attacked by ninjas, soldiers, kite ninjas, evil brains, ninjas on hovercrafts, robots, ninjas with wings, a giant, mutated freak, and, of course, Mechagodzilla. It was a really fun title that took you all over the place, from a sim...

Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed (Wii)

Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed review (WII)

Reviewed on March 12, 2008

It might not have occurred to you, but 'Big Willy' can be used to refer to, well... a penis. This gag is used repeatedly throughout the game, as Pox complains that the competition wants to milk his Big Willy dry, as he talks about covering the world with his Big Willy and so forth. Just when you think that surely the writers ran out of silly puns involving alien genitalia, something else pops up and suddenly Pox is talking about his 500 erections (of restaurants, naturally).

What makes the invasion of the U.S. different from that of France? Who would fight back, and who would manipulate the situation for personal gain? Instead of seizing the opportunity to dissect the American experience, Spark slapped some fedoras and Brooklyn accents on the scene and called it a day.
