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...

Grandia faithfuls know that long dungeons aren't a problem with this series. Its Active Time Battle combat system is one of the best around, and Xtreme improves it.

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 ...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 30, 2006

Dealing with a special edition of a game is tricky business. Chances are, youíve got the original version, played through it a fair share of times, and thought it was the best damn thing since sliced bread. But when that newer version comes out, youíre left with a choice: buying it because you enjoyed the original so much, or ignore it because of the gaming companyís blatant attempt to get more cash out of your wallet. Either choice poses a risk; should you shell out the extra money, you may fin...

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre review (A2600)

Reviewed on July 30, 2006

While it certainly pushes the envelope in terms of content even by todayís standards, this massacre of good taste quickly runs out of gas both metaphorically and quite literally.

N3: Ninety-Nine Nights (Xbox 360)

N3: Ninety-Nine Nights review (X360)

Reviewed on July 30, 2006

Ninety-Nine Nights is grand, sweeping, and epic. Each character's attack style is varied, each storyline is different, and the secret character's adventure is a BLAST. At the best of times, the game's thoroughly engrossing and a joy to play. Unfortunately, because of numerous design issues, it can't fend off the bellowing swarms of other, better, older brawlers.

Tekken 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 29, 2006

Tekken. Itís arguably the greatest 3D fighting game series ever conceived. After years of fame and popularity in the arcades and on the Playstation, the franchise was finally ready to make that big leap onto the PS2 in hopes of maintaining its iron grip on the fighting genre. After the incredibly successful debut of Tekken Tag Tournament on the new console, the future of Tekken looked pretty brightÖuntil the previews for Tekken 4 started showing up.

The Suffering review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 28, 2006

After a certain point in the game, most players will be used to that sort of chaotic action, as The Suffering revels in it. Torque spends much of the game trapped in a lunaticís nightmare, surrounded by panicking guards and inmates fighting each other, as well as their otherworldly foes.

EVE Online: The Second Genesis review (PC)

Reviewed on July 28, 2006

Imagine a sprawling universe at your fingertips: thousands of space stations ringing thousands of stars that await your presence. Beyond that, imagine that enterprising people with the necessary materials and know-how would be able to colonize, police, and otherwise run entire sectors of space, completely free of influence by outside forces. A refreshing sci-fi setting makes for an attractive alternative to any of the dime-a-dozen sword and sorcery MMOs out there. Furthering this strong sense of...
