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

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

Reviewed on May 06, 2006

I used to write articles on a monthly basis for my local newspaper. It was a great little job for me because I got to write about video games and movies and unlike these reviews, I actually got paid for it. I started a “Best Entertainment Bets” column eventually that I used to discuss my top picks for upcoming games and movies, and I picked the Chronicles of Riddick DVD as the best upcoming DVD. I received quite a few comments about my choice. Many people hated the film. I guess I can und...

Siren (PlayStation 2)

Siren review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 06, 2006

These days it seems like the Japanese have become the torch-bearers for quality horror movies. Frankly, the American formula was getting a bit old, a bit unimaginative, and a bit too action-oriented. Often times, I cannot differentiate the latest American horror film from a comic book or a “Rambo” sequel. Japanese horror does have a more direct effect on me. I think the reason is that it’s a bit more cerebral. Though many traditional Japanese horror stories may seem a bit odd to the America...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (Xbox 360)

Need for Speed: Most Wanted review (X360)

Reviewed on May 05, 2006

I’m not a racing game fan. I usually prefer an rpg with a good story and unforgettable characters. But once in awhile a great racing game comes out that I must play. One such game was Need for Speed Underground, which was the first of a new genre of racing games. It offered great visuals, awesome cars, and exhilarating fun. Now, two installments later in the Need for Speed series, Most Wanted offers the same exciting gameplay with some new features and the classic police chases that make it just...

Condemned: Criminal Origins (Xbox 360)

Condemned: Criminal Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on May 05, 2006

You’re walking down a dark hallway, littered with trash, torn-up, blood infested walls. The only light above is flickering rapidly, you hear deep breathing- footsteps. You’re holding a bloody shovel, right on the trail of the Torturer, a deadly serial killer. You hear a garbage can rustle and fall and you jump out of your seat! You take some cautious steps forward and peek into a room. Then you see something jump across the room and you hear the loud thump as a drug addict cracks a 2 x 4 over yo...

X-Multiply (Arcade)

X-Multiply review (ARC)

Reviewed on May 04, 2006

One memorable section sends the player down a long corridor to a vast chamber while dodging deadly drops of fluid dripping from the ceiling, leading me to believe my travels had taken me into the depths of the digestive system, where mammoth drops of stomach acid posed a very real threat. Then again, that level’s boss was a snake-like creature that fired bullets suspiciously shaped like sperm, so I may not actually have been in the belly of the beast....

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PC)

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion review (PC)

Reviewed on May 02, 2006

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion truly is one of those titles that only appear once in a blue moon; in a time where dry points are strewn about the gaming scene.

Beatmania (PlayStation 2)

Beatmania review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 29, 2006

To really enjoy the experience, you better have some serious dexterity, hardcore beat-matching skills, perseverance, and a love for every little sub-genre of electronic music out there.

Gradius III (SNES)

Gradius III review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 29, 2006

First and foremost: Gradius III has some of the worst slowdown ever seen in a scrolling shooter. Yes, yes, this is a common issue in early third-party SNES games, and Gradius III was actually the first third-party game ever released on the system (just two weeks after launch.) Even so, the fact that slowdown is the first thing to come to mind when I think about Gradius III is not a good sign. If more than a few sprites or one larger-than-normal sprite is present (which is almost always, and incl...

Spider-Man & Venom: Separation Anxiety (Genesis)

Spider-Man & Venom: Separation Anxiety review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 28, 2006

Separation Anxiety, however, does not have that style. Not a bit of it. It doesn’t progress the story with comic panels; it gives you a wall of text before each mission and lets you go. The storyline it came from was weak in the first place, and there’s no attempt to hide that here; most of your time is going to be spent fighting color-swapped versions of the same enemy in exotic locales like the mall and the sewer for poorly explained reasons.

SRS: Street Racing Syndicate (PlayStation 2)

SRS: Street Racing Syndicate review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 27, 2006

From the old school arcade to the modern day consoles, racing games have developed a large following. Whether you’re a fan of tearing down the streets racing for pinks in games like Need for Speed or entering the circuit and chasing the checkered flag in games like Sega Rally, there is something for everyone. Even for the guys like me who don’t know anything about racing or even cars for that matter, there are games. Games like Street Racing Syndicate. Maybe not the best thing out there, but cer...

Medal of Honor (PlayStation)

Medal of Honor review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 27, 2006

In his briefing, Jimmy is given authorization papers to show guards. He’s told to AVOID combat, sneak around, do what he has to do and get out as quickly as possible. And when he does that, the one-star (maybe two) rating he’ll get upon achieving this hollow success will weigh upon his heart like a scarlet letter of shame.

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse (Xbox)

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 27, 2006

Imagine that after living a crappy life, you were murdered, just like that and even worse, when they threw your ass into a hole in the ground, no one cared. No one came to wish you your best as you began your journey into your afterlife. There were no fancy tombs, no sacrifices, no screaming widows; just a lump left in the Earth after the dirt was thrown on top of you. That would suck. Moments before your death, as your life flashed before your eyes, you’d wish for a chance to come back and do t...

Tekken 5 (PlayStation 2)

Tekken 5 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 26, 2006

Tekken 5 was out for more than a year before I even realized it existed. Kind of sad, really, when you consider I’m the guy who spent most of his teenage years pumping enough quarters into Tekken 3 to pay for college. Why? I just didn’t care anymore. Tag was boring and 4 never entered my thoughts let alone my collection, but in browsing I had hope for 5. “Rebuilt engine, customize your characters.” I read. “Prepare for the deepest, most relentless fighting acti...

Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)

Shadow of the Colossus review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2006

In the end, the hardest thing to deal with is in knowing that the game will eventually come to an end. Shadow’s brilliance lies in its desire to be different from any other role-playing title out there.

Top Spin (PlayStation 2)

Top Spin review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2006

Indisputably a revelation at its initial release, Top Spin spent its first two years of existence secluded in the land of Microsoft. But with the sequel tapped to expand the franchise fiefdom to Nintendo’s handhelds, Sony needed a piece of the action as well. So out came the PS2 version of the original game, raring to teach everyone who avoided the XBox how deep and enjoyable a well done game of tennis could be. Unfortunately, the main lesson here is how much an old and unimproved pi...

Tetris DS review (DS)

Reviewed on April 24, 2006

Did you ever have a friend that you would sit down and play Tetris with and they absolutely sucked at it? No matter what they did, no matter how far they leaned over on the edge of their chair and concentrated, you were still better than them? Well, I was that friend to someone, somewhere. I suck at Tetris. My friends and I play Tetris drunk against each other and even when they’re drunk, I still get totally trounced every single time. I’ll occasionally win a round when they...

Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked (PlayStation 2)

Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 23, 2006

Despite all the silliness surrounding it, the core gameplay is both intuitive and smooth. At its heart, Sidetracked is a single-player hack-and-slash, most similar to a fully-3D Golden Axe. Like the classic old-school brawlers, levels are straightforward, there's a lot of button-mashing, and the enemies are repetitive. Fortunately, the game's always free-flowing and fast-paced. There's never any dead space... wherever you walk, enemies will follow, and those enemies must be ELIMINATED!

The Silent Hill Experience (PSP)

The Silent Hill Experience review (PSP)

Reviewed on April 23, 2006

The Silent Hill Experience, while at heart no more than an expanded set of bonus features like you might find on an especially cool DVD release, is unnerving to an extreme. Instead of vibrant arrows and slick menus, you’ll sample the various goods the disc offers by stumbling through a building stained by rust and made of bricks covered in dry, coppery blood.

Donkey Kong Country (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 22, 2006

In 1994, Nintendo was in a bit of a pickle. The SNES was starting to be outmatched. 3DO, Jaguar, and now this newfangled "Sega 32X", with the Saturn and PlayStation due next year! And the N64 was still a ways off! How could Nintendo possibly compete with these flurry of formidable 32-bit consoles? (Actually, four of those five "competitors" barely managed to let a fart out before their hasty death, but hey, hindsight is 20/20.) Well, Nintendo struck a deal with Silicon Graphics (the premier CGI ...

Hummer Badlands (Xbox)

Hummer Badlands review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 22, 2006

It’s not difficult to rush to the front of the pack, but the first curve you round will drop you back into the rear as your opponents navigate each turn with a professional combination of steering and acceleration that will leave even the best players green with envy. Even if you manage to build up a significant lead—say, half a lap—fumbling your way through one corner is enough to put you in fourth place.
