Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (Atari 2600)

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back review (A2600)

Reviewed on August 08, 2005

Over the past handful of years, I’ve had to repress a cynical chuckle more than once. With the birth of the most recent Star Wars trilogy came a slew of video games designed to capitalize on the popularity of the revered movie franchise. As can be expected whenever consoles and computers try to recapture cinematic magic, the results often were less than stellar.

We Love Katamari (PlayStation 2)

We Love Katamari review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 08, 2005

Initially, some may see Namco's decision to dub their release, "We Love Katamari", as an obvious attempt to fool thoughtless, Walmart shoppers. Part egocentric admission of self-confessed love, part marketing ploy from hell, the title's underhanded strategy is suspicious at best. It's lucky for us however, the revised moniker is anything but nefarious, and its carefully chosen wording has given players a glimpse of what is to come.

Super Mario All-Stars (SNES)

Super Mario All-Stars review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 08, 2005

Rock has the Beatles. Fantasy has Lord of the Rings. Cinema has Star Wars. They may not have been the first in their respective forms of entertainment, but they shattered all preconceptions when they arrived and forever changed the way these media were percieved. And surely, Mario deserves to stand in their midst, being the best selling series of all time and providing the very model of modern platformers. So what better way to honor this series than a Mario compilation involving the man in...

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on August 08, 2005

According to those boring writing classes I had to take way back when, all essays should start with some introduction, some hook to get the reader interested. And yet, what can I say? You've heard it all already: 14 or so variations of the game that started Nintendo's dominance, a dozen or so appeals to nostalgia, 8 different methods of calling the game groundbreaking or revolutionary, 6 or so history lessons about the video game crash, and even one or two jokers comparing Mario to a certain d...

Polarium (DS)

Polarium review (DS)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Scanning the local Gamestop, my eyes lazily rested on an interesting prospect. Everyone knows that puzzlers hold lofty standards on handheld gaming machines; every good portable needs an excellent pick-up-and-play title. Thus I briskly passed on the highly touted Meteos and took a somewhat risky stab at Polarium. Based on the fact that I’ve been playing it feverishly for the past three weeks, I’ll go out on a limb and say I got my money’s worth.

Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo review (TGCD)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Dracula X strikes a masterful balance between old-school Castlevania action and all that newfangled exploration that dominates the series today as surely as our hero strikes an oaken stake into some luckless bloodsucker’s heart.

Drakengard (PlayStation 2)

Drakengard review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Caim and his fire-breathing friend will travel down a long road that brings them nothing but pain and misery, with death comprising the only means through which to achieve peace of mind. Ultimately, all that they can do is make sure they deal an equitable amount of grief to their adversaries in turn.

The Legend of Dragoon (PlayStation)

The Legend of Dragoon review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

It's a game that has a story to tell. And hidden within the plot's ever-present twists and turns, it tries to give you something new. It craves to wow you, and it tries so hard to impress because it so wants to put itself on the map.

Harvest Moon (SNES)

Harvest Moon review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Maybe this just isn’t my type of game, but despite its superficially inventive premise, I really don’t see how “tedious exercises in monotony” could be anyone’s type of game.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

I can't copy-paste on Dreamcast so no excerpt for you. Just click the review out of pity spawned by the fact that I am, in fact, typing this review on a Dreamcast.

Xevious (Arcade)

Xevious review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Xevious is nothing you'd play if you were embroiled in something great and substantial. But it's a decent distraction when there's nothing else at stake. Brainless blasting is always more attractive to me than an old puzzle game like Ms. Pacman or a provencial pseudo-platformer like Mappy, because you can actually go somewhere. The screen actually scrolls, the illusion of travelling occurs.

Alisia Dragoon (Genesis)

Alisia Dragoon review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 06, 2005

Alisia Dragoon may not be God’s gift to action gamers but it still packs a punch. Not only does it star a hot anime chick (Well, some might think that) but also it has the best method of pest control I’ve seen. Who would’ve thought that sweeping bolts of lightening are an effective method for destroying a bunch of mangy insects?

Exile II: Crystal Souls (PC)

Exile II: Crystal Souls review (PC)

Reviewed on August 06, 2005

The Exile trilogy made something of a name for itself when it hit the shareware market in the mid-90’s, claiming a handful of mildly impressive awards and thrilling loads of people in magazines I’ve never heard of. Then, a few years later, it was remade into the less awesome Avernum series, which marked Spiderweb Software’s jump onto the crappy 3D bandwagon. But the shareware era was destined to die, and when it faded away so did Spiderweb’s games. To this day they can still be fou...

Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana (PlayStation 2)

Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 05, 2005

Between fighting slimes that look like little Puyo-Puyo's and enlisting the aid of the fairy yakuza Pilke, Atelier Iris is a fun adventure with enticingly colorful graphics and vibrantly peppy music. Sure, it lacks the touching drama of a masterpiece like Emerald Dragon, but far better to be fun than generic.

Nanostray (DS)

Nanostray review (DS)

Reviewed on August 04, 2005

Some games are fond of throwing oceans of bullets your way and calling it thrilling. There’s none of that here. You actually have room to move. Not only that, but one collision with a stray bullet isn’t your end. You still need to avoid shield-draining projectiles, but losing sight of them amidst the gorgeous backgrounds isn’t fatal.

Ultimate Doom (Mac)

Ultimate Doom review (MAC)

Reviewed on August 03, 2005

For someone like me, who likely is never going to leave the planet Earth, the thought of becoming a Space Marine is an attractive prospect. Being able to travel to distant planets and call the moons of Mars my home sounds like the adventure of a lifetime! Sadly, as classic first-person shooter Doom illustrates, there is a wee bit of a darkside to holding such an occupation. For mysterious reasons, the forces of Hell pay a little visit to Phobos and Deimos (those Martian moons, for those n...

Riviera: The Promised Land (Game Boy Advance)

Riviera: The Promised Land review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 02, 2005

My first hours with Riviera were not indicative of what my next few weeks with it would be like. I popped it in and was displeased by the entire set up and not surprised that I could guess the whole story within the first 5 minutes. The jaded RPG fan inside of me totally flared up. I almost sold it right back to someone who would appreciate it, but gave it a second chance. What I almost missed out on was one of the more refreshing RPG experiences this gen. Through the distillation of typical, wo...

Okay, check this: it's the year 2008, see, and like, countries start leaving the U.N., and economic regions in South Asia joined together to create AWESOME POWER. I guess. Then the U.N. started to suck afterwards. Now fast-foward to 2023, and like, a democratic revolution broke out within this Asian nation, and then The South Asian Trade Area was like, "Whoa, terrorists!". So, now it's 2024, and the U.N. decided to form this multi-force thingy to fight against The South Asian Trade and gain REAL...

Capcom Fighting Evolution (Xbox)

Capcom Fighting Evolution review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 02, 2005

I think that Capcom wanted Capcom Fighting Jam to be the ultimate 2-D fighting experience. It combined five of their best fighting series (three of them are actually different variations of Street Fighter) and merged them into one game. It sounds like a Capcom fan’s dream come true but the horrible truth reveals that CFJ is an awkward and rushed fighter that does nothing to stand out from the crowd.
