Skyblazer (SNES)

Skyblazer review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

I've noticed that the platformer genre really started to get stale on the SNES. Sure, Mario World was more than adequate, and there were a select few other gems as well. But unfortunately, the vast majority of them seemed to be the same thing over and over - slow moving cute fluffy animals in generic worlds with average gameplay at best and wild swings in difficulty. Imagine my surprise to find a hit, not in Nintendo or Capcom, but in Sony. They certainly weren't a major player back then, an...

Soul Blazer (SNES)

Soul Blazer review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

Some people call Zelda an action/RPG. Although Zelda has elements of both genres, it is much more than that, and is in reality a completely different genre. Soul Blazer, often compared to Zelda by those that have actually heard of it, is not. It is a simple blend of action and RPG, combining the two rather than creating something new. Such an attempt, blending two incredibly different styles of gaming, seems doomed to failure. Yet, despite the seeming impossibility, I find Soul Blazer to be a s...

Taito Legends (PlayStation 2)

Taito Legends review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

There are other games on the compilation, too, classics like Elevator Action, Super Qix and Phoenix. They’re as much fun as you remember, but don’t expect much in the way of improvements. Though you can adjust difficulty levels and the size of the ‘arcade’ screen as you play, that’s about where the customization ends. On a similar note, extras are sparse.

WTF: Work Time Fun (PSP)

WTF: Work Time Fun review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

Baito Hell 2000 on the other hand, wants you bored. It needs your brain on auto pilot, and will pummel it mercilessly with the same event until your eyes glaze over. And therein lies the hook: you're going to love every minute of it.

Conflict: Desert Storm (Xbox)

Conflict: Desert Storm review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

Looking at Conflict: Desert Storm for the first time, it is entirely forgivable to automatically label it as the poor man’s multi-platform Ghost Recon. That's certainly what I did; I just consider myself fortunate that I bypassed my preliminary misgivings long enough to actually try the game.

Samurai Shodown V (Xbox)

Samurai Shodown V review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 21, 2006

A casual glance at Samurai Shodown V will remind you of early Playstation games (fitting, considering when this was originally developed). The most impressive elements are the size of the sprites and any background movement. My favorite arena takes is a suspension bridge. Pine trees sway nearby and, beyond them, water cascades down a monstrous waterfall.

Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360)

Dead or Alive 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

Whether it's drunken master Brad immersing himself in drink, Helena discovering the truth about her mother's murder, or the "romance" between Leifang and Jann Lee coming to its conclusion, Dead or Alive 4 is the true sequel to DOA2 that Dreamcast fans have longed for and that ignorant blowhards have feared.

Fallout 2 (PC)

Fallout 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

World War III nearly destroyed all life on Earth. No one bothers to remember the specifics now; they’re trivialities, unimportant details.

Alien Soldier (Genesis)

Alien Soldier review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

Twenty five bite-sized levels of pure mayhem, anyway. Because Alien Soldier isn't about stomping through waves of underlings and mass-produced cannon fodder; it's about going toe-to-toe with some of the sickest and most malevolent bosses imaginable.

Splatterhouse 2 (Genesis)

Splatterhouse 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

I don’t like Splatterhouse 2. I was planning to mock its sloppy control and limited moveset. I was planning to attack its stricter-than-Altered Beast linearity. I was even planning to poke fun at the sanitized pastel ichor that bursts from every beast (a far cry from the original’s frightening decor). With the above palette of problems, I was planning to paint the most unflattering picture of Splatterhouse 2 that the internet has ever seen.

Cave Story (PC)

Cave Story review (PC)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

Cave Story is definitely the right game, but it's in the wrong place, at the wrong time. If you time-warped (again) back to 1990 and released it on the Mega Drive, the time you returned to wouldn't be the rubbish one we know. It'd be an endless pastel-hued Age of the Pixel, where men express themselves in only sprites and double-jumps and catchy 16-bit tunes. Nobody'd remember Mario or the Green Hill Zone or the rain or tetrominoes or El Viento or any of that crap; they'd remember ...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

A long, long time ago on the Dreamcast there was a game called Shenmue. Not many people remember much about Shenmue, but it was a game where you played as a young Chinese man attempting to avenge his father's death by buying furniture for his house. While the concept was nonsensical, the game sold, as would its XBox sequel. Enter Nintendo. With the doomed failure that was the N64, Nintendo decided that it had to do something to boost sales, and released Doubutsu No Mori, a direct ripoff of Shen...

Spider-Man (Nintendo 64)

Spider-Man review (N64)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

It was a magic-spider, he was chosen by a spider-god, he gave birth to himself (long story)…some writers just don’t seem to get it. Simplicity works wonders. Same with life, same with comics, same with games.

Fallout (PC)

Fallout review (PC)

Reviewed on January 18, 2006

Until now, there were no dreams of the future. The world as you know it has been confined to the massive bunker, Vault 13. Inside the redundant maze of sterile hallways and fluorescent tubes, all that mattered was keeping the vault running for future generations. Even that task has become a hopeless cause. The water purification system in Vault 13 has broken, and without new water chip, your people will die.

Quake 4 (Xbox 360)

Quake 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 18, 2006

There are few games that can boast an arsenal quite like this, and there are fewer still that actually make it work. From the rapid fire brutality of the nail gun, to the hyper blaster, to a dark matter cannon that fires quantum singularities, each and every weapon packs an awesome punch.

Spartan: Total Warrior (PlayStation 2)

Spartan: Total Warrior review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 17, 2006

The Spartan is at his best when he’s just going around killing stuff, and the game gives you plenty of chance to do that. Sometimes he kills alone, outnumbered by twenty, thirty, maybe even forty. Sometimes he’s fighting with his buddies, playing the odd-evener when they’re outmanned. But the situation and the location don’t matter: the Spartan was born to end lives, and he follows his calling.

Shining Tears (PlayStation 2)

Shining Tears review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 17, 2006

It's like a 2D mission-based Dynasty Warriors. From your headquarters, you'll pick a new objective then run out onto a hand-painted map and button-mash to kill all the orcs, skeletons, and whatnot in sight. There are some skills that you can use, but for the most part you'll be tapping a single button over and over. Unfortunately, Shining Tears lacks most of the things that made Dynasty Warriors famous.

Wild Arms 4 (PlayStation 2)

Wild Arms 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

Sometimes you can switch off battles entirely. Some people might worry that this will result in a game where you give into temptation and don’t fight enough, resulting in mad level building halfway through the game. That’s not true, though, because you can’t switch off the fights the minute you feel like it. Each new locale forces you to endure combat first. There’s even more good news, too: battles don’t suck.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy (DS)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy review (DS)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

Fullmetal Alchemist has become a somewhat popular anime and manga series on American soil lately. However, it is far more popular in Japan, as is obvious by the movie released that has yet to obtain an American release date, as well as the various Fullmetal Alchemist games released for previous handhelds, that will never make it here. The latest game in the series, Dual Sympathy for the Nintendo DS looks to be sealed with the same fate. Considering that the Nintendo DS has no region block, impor...

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (Xbox)

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

In a sense, Street Fighter Anniversary Collection should be the ultimate 2-D fighting experience. Not only does it include Hyper Street Fighter 2, a compilation of all of the SF2 versions into one but, it also contains one of the best “new-school” 2-D fighters: Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. Not only do we get two of the greatest fighting games of all time, we get the full-length 1994 anime movie. Although, this may not enthral the majority of us, a handful of fanatics will be enthused.
