Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox)

Hitman: Blood Money review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 10, 2006

The seemingly insipid story revolving around a genetically cloned man offing assortments of people around the world doesnít look or sound too outwardly appealing. I mean, canít we fill a slew of bad guys with lead in countless other games already? Sure we can. But what makes Hitman: Blood Money so darn endearing is its matter-of-fact approach to the stunningly brutal acts of murder found throughout the whole game. However, itís not simply the murder that does it; itís the maddeningly clever ...

Lost Magic (DS)

Lost Magic review (DS)

Reviewed on June 10, 2006

Coming up with RPGs for the DS must be tricky. Sure, your staff can come up with all sorts of cliched stories and generic heroes to go with them. Thereís also plenty of leeway with regards to the leveling and combat systems. Hell, even the DSís graphical capabilities can work a few small wonders. But the real problem lies with the Touch Screen; itís one of the systemís most celebrated features, yet finding new and inventive ways to utilize it must be quite a task. All things considered, itís lit...

Trace Memory (DS)

Trace Memory review (DS)

Reviewed on June 09, 2006

A young boy watches in horror as one man levels a pistol at another. Pop Cue a blood red fadeout. Over four decades later, a mother hustles her daughter into hiding. Peeking from the closet, the small girl with white hair sees only the silhouette of a man holding a gun. Another dull pop resonates. Cue another blood red fadeout.

Metal Saga (PlayStation 2)

Metal Saga review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 09, 2006

I had no reason to go anywhere other than to get in fights and earn money to buy better equipment for my characters and their tanks. With no motivation beyond personal gain, everything I accomplished in Metal Saga seemed hollow ó a never-ending series of frivolous events only connected by their lack of connection.

Shining Force (Genesis)

Shining Force review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 08, 2006

During the gameís final battles, I didnít have the courage to send Max into the heart of conflict. Why? Because if he gets defeated, the game ends and I found out the hard way that one unlucky confrontation can accomplish that in the blink of an eye.

Formula One: Built to Win (NES)

Formula One: Built to Win review (NES)

Reviewed on June 05, 2006

There wasnít much of a difference between the first few Formula One races and the last few American ones, so I jumped out to a hefty lead in the points standings over real-life drivers of the time (with slightly altered names, such as ďA. FrostĒ instead of Alain Prost or ďA. ZennaĒ instead of Ayrton Senna). I was feeling fine. Only a few races from winning the F-1 championship, I felt not even the wrath of God himself could stop me!

Fight Night Round 3 (PlayStation 2)

Fight Night Round 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 05, 2006

Fighting without the energy bar, with no concrete way to gauge my opponents health and stamina, has made this game one of the most intense experiences Iíve ever had on any console; itís amazing on multiple levels. The opponentís body becomes your gauge; youíre targeting him, picking out spots, centering, focusing your attacks, faking him, looking to make sure he hurts in one spot more than the others. You land a solid blow and it hits with all the subtlety of roaring thunder; the controller shakes, the screen shakes, blood spurts from his mouth, you can feel the ribs give way as your fist connects.

King of Fighters: Maximum Impact (PlayStation 2)

King of Fighters: Maximum Impact review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 03, 2006

Once upon a time, the Street Fighter series was the greatest thing to happen to the fighting game genre. There was a massive roster of incredibly popular characters, a wide variety of special moves, and some of the best competitive gameplay ever seen. But for all of the success that the Street Fighter genre garnered with each passing year, there was only one other series in Japan that rivaled its awesomeness: The King of Fighters. There were no sumo wrestlers, Indian Yoga disciples, Sonic Booms,...

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! (NES)

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! review (NES)

Reviewed on June 01, 2006

Franceís most stalwart athlete, Glass Joe, quickly finds out his career is heading for a humiliating end, as his punches are easily dodged by Mac, who then responds by sending jab after jab into Joeís face. The fight is short and brutal ó with Glass Joe spending more time face down than the average hentai game chick.

God of War (PlayStation 2)

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 29, 2006

Do you have a job? If not, you will eventually. Assuming that youíre not going to mooch off your parents for the rest of your life, youíll have to face the harsh reality of the working world someday. Chances are, it wonít be pretty. Maybe youíll start things off as a lowly bagger at a grocery store. Or maybe youíll suffer countless hours in the hell known as babysitting. If you manage to finish your college education, your degree may help land you a job in a reasonably professional environmentÖW...

Steambot Chronicles (PlayStation 2)

Steambot Chronicles review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 29, 2006

Steambot Chronicles is cool like that; thereís an overlying story, sure, but progressing it rarely requires you to do anything hard. Hell, it rarely requires you to do much at all.

RapeLay (PC)

RapeLay review (PC)

Reviewed on May 27, 2006

To some extent, RapeLay represents a substantial evolution in hentai gaming: diverse, real-time, interactive sexual intercourse. But let's be honest. In RapeLay, you rape women. Well-programmed or not, it's despicable.

Final Fantasy IV (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IV review (PSX)

Reviewed on May 27, 2006

Iíve played Final Fantasy games involving cute ďslam dancingĒ animals, a stupid creature called NORG, and implied man-on-man action in a notorious place called the Honey Bee Inn. What I havenít experienced is a Final Fantasy game as insanely difficult as the fourth installment. Perhaps the first couple games featured on Final Fantasy Origins were the most challenging, but those PSone incarnations were on a glorious easy setting that made things a breeze. This isnít the ca...

Metroid: Zero Mission (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid: Zero Mission review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 24, 2006

It is the start of one of the most cherished franchises, one that spawned sequels many consider to be among the best games of all time. It's ending surprised everyone, becoming one of the most iconic moments in gaming history. It is ingrained into our collective consciousness, an experience anyone who plays games knows about. And it's a bad game. Yes, you heard me. The original Metroid was nearly unplayable thanks to some poor decisions, limitations in the hardware, and simply awful design ...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 24, 2006

Being Sonic isnít as easy as one might think. Once one looks past the glamour of being a world hero, his job is pretty tough. Sonicís arch-nemesis, Dr. Robotnik, is constantly kidnapping the furry animals of the world and only Sonic can save them. This might seem like an easy task at first but it is much more difficult than it presents itself. The reason for this complication is because Dr. Robotnik has set up machines to try to take out Sonic so he doesnít have to take out the blue hedgehog him...

Battalion Wars review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 22, 2006

Military games are a dime a dozen these days. When was the last time a major World War II-based combat simulation not being released for a home console or PC? How many times can we take on the AI-controlled Germans and still feel like weíre playing a unique game? Havenít we deployed platoons, shot down enemy fighters, endured D-Day, blown up, and used tanks to plow our way through enemy forces enough times to make the whole experience seem unoriginal? Nevertheless, playing war hasnít seem to hav...

Tenchu: Dark Secret review (DS)

Reviewed on May 22, 2006

Youíve got your back against the wall, and your heart is pounding. Around the corner from where you stand, a guard is restlessly pacing back and forth down the corridors, armed to the teeth with deadly weapons. Youíve been watching him for three minutes now, trying to figure out the manís movement patterns. Will he turn right and exit into the adjacent hallway? Will he make an abrupt U-Turn and head back toward your position? Doesnít he realize that heís being watched from an enemy less than thi...

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (PlayStation 2)

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 22, 2006

Lord of the Rings is the all-time classic fantasy novel, and now movie experience. Tolkien would be my favorite writer if it wasn't for R.A. Salvatore and the movies would be my favorite film trilogy if it wasn't for Star Wars (the original three of course). With all the hype The Third Age was getting, I was hopping that it would be the source of entertainment that broke the "runner-up" streak that Lord of the Rings has had with me. It did, but unfortunately not in a good wa...

Cavity Sam has dedicated his entire existence to the medical field. Perpetually prone with gaping wounds, heís given millions the chance to poke and prod in order to develop the steady hand necessary to save lives. But we feel his pain, too. Every time one of his vital organs goes missing, his red nose lights up in distress, or his body emits a shocking buzz, we know Sam has sacrificed a little more of himself. Now, though, itís time for a break, because Trauma Center: Under the Knife...
