Mega Man X: Command Mission (GameCube)

Mega Man X: Command Mission review (GCN)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

This isn’t the first Mega Man RPG, but it is the first Mega Man RPG that hasn’t used weird some weird card system or had grids to move around on or wasn’t a blatant Pokémon knockoff. In Command Mission you play as X, robot fighter extraordinaire, hunter of the rogue reploids known as Mavericks. If you’ve been playing Mega Man X games for a while, you probably have this history memorized; from what I can tell, it’s just a continuation of the main series. I wouldn’t know because, again, I’m not good at the games and haven’t dug deep into the storyline. And, again, I don’t really need to. Command Mission’s plot is extremely linear and self-contained.

Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 (PC)

Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30 review (PC)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

A lot of advertisements for games emphasize team-based combat. In countless games, you are supposed to be able to command an elite squad of soldiers who will execute your every command flawlessly and respond as adeptly as a human would. Typically, first-person shooters brag about this high level of team unity, but most of the time, they fail terribly at living up to their promise. The AI just isn’t smart enough, or the programming just wasn’t good enough, or the feature just wasn’t worth using. ...

Phantom Brave (PlayStation 2)

Phantom Brave review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 30, 2006

Phantom Brave follows the Nippon Ichi tradition for strategy RPGs with a twist - or a dozen twists, as it happens. The basics of the genre are recognizable - characters walking across a map, turn based, to kill their enemies with a variety of regular attacks and special skills - but that's about where all the usual expectations go out the window. This formula worked out great for Disgaea and to an extent, it still does; but at a couple of points, the game comes off as too experimental for its ow...

Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis)

Streets of Rage 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on September 29, 2006

And make no mistake — losing the services of Adam was such a crushing blow to comrades Axel and Blaze that they needed to enlist TWO other vigilante crime fighters in an attempt to replace him. Skate is a skateboarder who I’ve never used or even considered using. Just look at the little pipsqueak and you’ll understand. Max is a big, powerful guy who suffers from being the slowest-moving human being in the world. Sure, he can wade through Mr. X’s foot soldiers with ease, littering the city streets with broken bodies and shattered dreams, but put him against nimble, agile foes and things get ugly.

NCAA Football 07 (PlayStation 2)

NCAA Football 07 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 28, 2006

First impression: lost and intimidated. In NCAA Football 07, every control performs some kind of special juke, spin, or stiff arm. One button launches a player into a forward dive; another accelerates him to a sprint. There are so many options, and you’ll feel the need to execute all of them at once. Adding to the indecision, there’s hundreds of offensive and defensive plays spread over dozens of formations. The complexity of EA’s collegiate pigskin franchise should make any casual g...

Bone: The Great Cow Race (PC)

Bone: The Great Cow Race review (PC)

Reviewed on September 28, 2006

A lot of notice was taken of Boneville's shortcomings and fixed up in this outing; while both games drip with a vibrant and goofy charm that will appeal to audiences young and old, the more sinister undertones that Jeff Smith's comics were so loved for have been allowed to further develop in this episode.

IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (PlayStation 2)

IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 26, 2006

No matter how excellently you race, your opponents will be right on your tail or just in front of you. Even if you crash and burn, you won’t lose track of them because the game just keeps you moving on its own. That leaves you free to explore IGPX’s primary draw: big robot punches.

Guerilla War (NES)

Guerilla War review (NES)

Reviewed on September 26, 2006

I won't pretend Guerrilla War is a very innovative game, because it's pretty much as derivative as it gets. There are no fancy gameplay mechanics on display here; this is the epitome of grab-a-weapon-shoot-some-baddies game design. But it's well-executed, it gets your adrenaline pumping, and that's enough to recommend the game. As far as run 'n' guns go, and especially as overhead ones go, Guerrilla War has no real competition on the NES. This is the best the system has to offer for pure twitch ...

MotoGP 2006 (Xbox 360)

MotoGP 2006 review (X360)

Reviewed on September 25, 2006

Chances are, if you're playing MotoGP'06 for the first time, you're gonna crash. A lot. This is thanks mostly to the feeling of the controls when you're driving your bike. It feels awkward at first, and after a few laps, you start to wonder if Climax screwed up. But, if you're willing to stick with the controls for a little bit longer, you'll start to get how things work and why they work that way. And once you're over that, you begin to enjoy the other aspects that make up this title.

Batman: Vengeance (PlayStation 2)

Batman: Vengeance review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 24, 2006

That’s how Batman operates: Intelligence. You’re required to think, conserve and take account of what you’re given to work with, what you need to survive against Gotham’s criminal element.

Okami (PlayStation 2)

Okami review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 24, 2006

As the sun rises over the village of Kamikimura, its brilliant rays shine on a lone statue sitting in the middle of town. This work of art was created in the loving memory of Shiranui, a white wolf that had once saved the village from utter destruction a century before. Back then, a demon known as Orochi would annually terrorize the town into submission, forcing the people to choose a woman to be sacrificed. In a true display of emotional heroism (and outright idiocy), a young hero named Izanagi...

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox)

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 23, 2006

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay successfully ties the game to the movie and beautifully combines elements of almost every genre. Throwing in stealth, shooting, platformer, and adventure elements CoR ties it all gorgeously and makes for a fantastic experience. The pacing and story are top-notch and you truly feel in control as a ruthless Furon trying to escape the trenches of one of the deadliest and toughest prisons in the entire galaxy.

Mega Man ZX review (DS)

Reviewed on September 23, 2006

Once upon a time, two Maverick Hunters teamed up to save the future from evil. There stood X, a suped-up rendition of the original Mega Man that wielded a chargeable energy blaster. Then there was Zero, X’s undeniably badass partner that wielded an even more badass laser saber. These two heroes waged an epic war against Sigma, an evil robot psychopath held bent on destroying mankind and ruling the world. Sigma had ravaged cities, slaughtered plenty of innocent people, nearly destroyed the planet...

Melty Blood: Act Cadenza (PlayStation 2)

Melty Blood: Act Cadenza review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 22, 2006

I don't play Melty Blood: Act Cadenza because of its technical merits. I play because it's fun. I love the characters, such as the poor undead schoolgirl (with a gimp arm) who sprints across the screen like Orochi Iori. I think it's awesome that the Catholic priestess hunts vampires with adamantium claws. There's even a midget cat-girl who shoots death beams from her eyes.

Tecmo Super Bowl (NES)

Tecmo Super Bowl review (NES)

Reviewed on September 22, 2006

Under the computer’s control, Christian Okoye and Barry Word are near-impossible to tackle unless the player is able to guess which play will be called (which causes the entire defense to gang-rush the unlucky ball carrier). If I was lucky, the computer would try to have Steve DeBerg pass his team to victory. If not, I’d repeatedly watch Okoye and Word crush my defenders on one long touchdown run after another, while praying I’d be able to score last to win a 35-31 brawl.

Frogger (Xbox 360)

Frogger review (X360)

Reviewed on September 21, 2006

Now when you start out onto the highway and you press ‘up’ on the controller, the frog immediately springs forth from the curb and dives into the adventure. When you press ‘left’ he doesn’t drift up into a truck in the next lane. Instead, he actually moves in the direction you specified! That’s a good improvement.

Time Pilot (Xbox 360)

Time Pilot review (X360)

Reviewed on September 20, 2006

What makes the game stand out from the crowd of its contemporaries is the rather unique notion that you’re not limited to just one static screen, like you would’ve been in Space Invaders or Galaga. You can fly up, down, left or right—or any combination of two directions—and the screen will accommodate your mad piloting skills.

Kengo: Master of Bushido (PlayStation 2)

Kengo: Master of Bushido review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 19, 2006

Kengo is a 3D sword-fighting game that takes place in the war-torn 16th-17th century era of Japan's history -- ripe ground for the blooming of close quarters combat. It presumes to deliver a reality based approach to the Japanese sword duel, in the same vein as Bushido Blade; however, many were disappointed that it did not include the one-hit kill system that made the BB series such a cult-hit, and I imagine even more players were turned off by its sparse approach to game design. It's my underst...
