Snatcher (MSX)

Snatcher review (MSX)

Reviewed on August 10, 2006

Hideo Kojimaís SNATCHER is a kickass graphic adventure thatís best described as an inspired synthesis of ďBlade Runner,Ē ďTerminator,Ē and ďWacky Japanese Perverts on Parade.Ē No doubt youíre already well aware of this thanks to the highly sought-after Sega CD port, but the MSX2 original is definitely worth checking out Ė particularly since itís been completely translated into English.

Final Fight (Arcade)

Final Fight review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 09, 2006

As the sun sets over Metro City, the citizens of the urban wasteland face another night of crime, corruption, and despair. Mad Gear, a powerful street gang with political influence and unparalleled resources, continues to tighten its chokehold on the city. Their dominance was a direct result of the old mayorís limitless greed and utter lack of cojones. But now thereís a new mayor in town, the kind of well-meaning and honest type of person that Mad Gear canít stand. In order to get the new offici...

Need for Speed: Underground (PlayStation 2)

Need for Speed: Underground review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 08, 2006

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 and Porsche Unleashed had you speeding through peaceful European villages in exotic cars. However, after the movie ďThe Fast and the FuriousĒ was released, EA decided to move the series into new territory. In Underground, you put the pedal to the metal in cheap import cars to prove your skill on the dark city streets. Thereís a vast amount of modifications for every vehicle, which ensures that no two cars are alike in the fabulous online play. In addition, each ...

Monster House (PlayStation 2)

Monster House review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 08, 2006

The level design takes advantage of each characterís unique attributes. If youíre in control of Chowder, you can expect fewer enemies, yet battles that are every bit as tough because your adversaries can take a lot of damage and keep right on attacking. Jenny, meanwhile, is constantly swarmed by animated chairs and other menaces that will bite savagely into her life meter if she doesnít keep moving wide of their assault.

Burnout 3: Takedown review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 06, 2006

In the world of Burnout 3, people cringe at the thought of using car insurance. Imagine a virtual reality where speeding doesnít get you a ticket and crashing your car is a goal. This is Burnout 3: Takedown. In a market of street racers and driving simulations, Burnout 3 stands out among the crowd. Through fusing different types of game modes, it finds that middle ground, providing a breath of fresh air. Thereís no complicated customization or tuning to worry about, just driving wildly. This pro...

Galaga review (X360)

Reviewed on August 05, 2006

So it is that we come to a new question: though Galaga has Ďworkedí for many years, how does it fare on the Xbox 360? The answer is that it does quite well for itself, if youíre not expecting anything more than what the game has always been.

New Super Mario Bros. (DS)

New Super Mario Bros. review (DS)

Reviewed on August 05, 2006

Everyoneís favorite hero, Mario, returns to his plumbing roots in New Super Mario Bros, essentially a more detailed look at the 1985 classic, Super Mario Bros. Despite being showcased in Super Mario Strikers and Mario Baseball, NSMB shows that Mario still can be the perfect piece in an excellent side scrolling adventure, and it brings a simple control scheme that allows for crazy level design. The plot and some of the environments from Super Mario Bros are re-used, but the game is significantly ...

Ghosts 'N Goblins (NES)

Ghosts 'N Goblins review (NES)

Reviewed on August 04, 2006

Ghosts 'n Goblins exemplifies the worst kind of challenge in a game: a game that is ridiculously hard solely to piss off whoever plays it. Ghosts 'n Goblins has no real agenda other than to make you mad. And it will succeed in that mission long before you ever complete the game. This is the kind of game where the developers purposely jacked up the difficulty to disguise the fact that their game plays like a fart. It looks bad, it sounds bad, it plays horribly, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a...

Exile (Genesis)

Exile review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 04, 2006

However, I soon realized that virtually everything had suddenly been reduced to nothing more than speed bumps. If an enemy hit me, I didnít even flinch. My preferred boss strategy was simply to stand in front of the villain and hit the ďattackĒ button as rapidly as I could until it perished. At some point in the game, Sadler learned magic. I never cast a single spell. I also didnít bother purchasing the stat-enhancing items and only used a total of four healing goods (two during the final boss fight).

R-Type (Game Boy)

R-Type review (GB)

Reviewed on August 03, 2006

There's no hand-holding, no cheap shortcuts, no easy rides. There is only a game's sadistic glee in the burning wreckage of a R9's mangled hull and a player's insatiable urge to right this wrong.

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

A lot of people were surprised when the first Final Fantasy sequel was announced, though it shouldnít have been a big shock. Final Fantasy X was one of the most beautiful games created for the PS2 and had a rabid following among the legions of Final Fantasy fans. Adding onto that loyalty, the somewhat bittersweet ending of FFX left many without the proper closure they needed to move on. So the folks at Square-Enix threw a bone to their fans by releasing Final Fantasy X-2.

Jade Empire (Xbox)

Jade Empire review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

In the Jade Empire, something strange is afoot. Corruption is winding its way to the highest levels of government, and some begin to wonder why the Emperor hasnít stepped in and stopped it. Far removed from these troubles, your life as a young fighter is peaceful. You spend each day training under the tutelage of the kind Master Li. While you do have run-ins with some of your fellow students, most of your peers respect and like you. Soon, however, your life takes a drastic change. Pirates raze y...

Kingdom Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

It's rare that a game comes along that reminds you of the best moments in your childhood and yet is still fun enough to keep you interested beyond mere nostalgia. Kingdom Hearts does just that through solid action-RPG gameplay which balances the timeless history of Disney with the unequaled gaming pedigree of Square. In this tale, you play the role of Sora, a young boy who lives on a small island and dreams of exploring the world beyond with his two best friends, Riku and Kairi. He has been havi...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords (Xbox)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a landmark RPG for the Xbox and a homerun in pretty much every way possible. KOTOR applied Bioware's proven RPG chops to the exciting mythos of the "galaxy far, far away" and gave the rabid Star Wars fan base a game that was worthy of the franchise's name. It certainly wasnít surprising that LucasArts would want to capitalize on that success by releasing a sequel quickly. A scant one year after KOTOR hit shelves, fledgling studio Obsidian E...

Doom (SNES)

Doom review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 31, 2006

A game with a ďfirst personĀEpoint of view. As a 14 year old console gamer who had never owned a PC, the idea didn't even make sense to me. How did you move around? Still, something about the screens featured in my favorite gaming magazine haunted me during the weeks leading up to my 15th birthday, and as I stood in the store isle with my planned purchase (Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) in one hand and the SNES version of the enigmatic Doom in the other, I made a last-minute choice that would change ...
