Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (Xbox)

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 08, 2005

It's this apparently apathetic lack of true care that Prince of Persia: Warrior Within will be remembered for the most. Whereby the original stood out from the crowd with its polished gameplay and abundant good charm, its sequel comes off as a mere rehash, made to order in a paint by numbers fashion for the early Christmas rush.

Swords & Serpents (NES)

Swords & Serpents review (NES)

Reviewed on February 07, 2005

Like I said, thereís not an in-depth plot. The game is more about exploration and the occasional adrenaline rushes that come from knowing youíre only surviving by the skin of your teeth. It is the very definition of Ďdungeon crawler,í and embodies most everything you may dread about that phrase. If youíre one of the few who lives for this sort of thing, though, Swords & Serpents is one of the best the NES ever saw.

Kiwi Kraze (NES)

Kiwi Kraze review (NES)

Reviewed on February 07, 2005

No matter what your surroundings, though, the game doesnít provide a lot of variety in terms of mechanics. Youíre still just running through one level after another (mostly swimming between underwater pockets of air in the case of the aquatic world I mentioned), firing your bow to take out the other animals. Some of these leave behind other weapons, such as ray guns that let your shots pass through walls, or bombs you can fire in arches to hit enemies below you.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 05, 2005

The Ocean; a vast area of water over millions of square kilometers, many points reaching a depth of under thirty kilometers below sea level. Creatures survive in spite of water pressure that would make a human explode in under a thousandth of a second, utter lack of sunlight, and very little botanical wildlife. Despite manís subjugation of land over tens of thousands of years, the Ocean is a mysterious place that we know little of.

Reviewed on February 04, 2005

Line Of Fire starts you off infiltrating an enemy base sometime in the future during a conflict probably with a third world county. Inside, Jack discovers a superweapon that could threaten the livelihood of millions all over the globe. However, his foe won't let him waltz off just yet. Seconds after discovering their secret, the elite guards are on Jack immediately. Time to make a great escape.

World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse & Donald Duck review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 04, 2005

Following the primitive flop that was Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle but prior to Sonicís high-speed assault on the gaming market, Sega released another cute platformer, a slow burner that won over many a playerís heart without the slightest bit of hype. Sales didnít tell the whole story: Castle of Illusion received the same sort of lavish praise that Sonic the Hedgehog garnered, and is thought of in the same fond light to this very day by those who were prudent enough to...

City Connection (NES)

City Connection review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2005

The problem is that all the timing in the world may not always be enough to save you. This is because some of the enemy sprites move so quickly and come so unexpectedly from off screen that only lightning-fast reflexes will save you. Worse, you have to be at the right level in order for an oil can shot to do any good.

The Simpsons: Bartman Meets Radioactive Man (NES)

The Simpsons: Bartman Meets Radioactive Man review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2005

Youíll have to ride portable gun turrets throughout most of the stage, often down shafts where a slightly short jump (a move all too easy to execute, unfortunately) spell certain doom. But suppose you survive these just fine. There are still the occasional weak enemies that can easily decimate your entire life meter.

Marble Madness (NES)

Marble Madness review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2005

Super Monkey Ball was quite the hit at Gamecube's launch. Sega made a great sleeper hit that has become one of the many well loved games this generation. But do all of the Monkey lovers out there know that this game is not a new concept, but is roughly based on an old game that happened to make its way to the NES? Yes, Marble Madness is in fact similar to design as its more well known and more advanced cousin. But whereas Segaís game may be wonderfully appreciated, this one does not deserve such...

Balloon Fight (NES)

Balloon Fight review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2005

In 1982, Larry Walters fulfilled his lifelong dream. By attaching 45 helium balloons to a lawn chair and armed only with a pellet gun, a radio, a camera, and some soda, he set flight. Sailing over California at 16,000 ft, he got to enjoy an impressive view (yet still forgot to take pictures) and piss off a lot of pilots. By shooting some of the balloons, he made a semi controlled descent, with a remarkable landing right into some high voltage power lines. Once safely on the ground, he was gr...

Mega Man 7 (SNES)

Mega Man 7 review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2005

By the time Capcom was done running their Mega Man franchise into the ground on the NES, it seemed obvious something needed to change. As the sequels had poured in, it seemed each new game had fewer things to set it apart from its predecessors until the NES series culminated with Mega Man 6 ó a completely unnecessary game that seemed content to merely rehash elements of the Blue Bomberís past few outings.

The Getaway: High Speed II (Game Boy)

The Getaway: High Speed II review (GB)

Reviewed on February 02, 2005

I like pinball, I think it's an enjoyable genre. Stay on the board for as long as possible and rake up as many points as you can. Yeah, I consider that entertaining. Now, pinball as a video game is a different story; trying to replicate the real deal into the digital form has been hit or miss. Sometimes developers nail it, while other times they fail miserably. Unfortunately, The Getaway: High Speed II falls into the latter category. Add to the fact that someone thought it was a brilliant...

Resident Evil 4 (GameCube)

Resident Evil 4 review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 02, 2005

Ok, can I just say one thing? Wow. Just... Wow. This game is a lot better than I thought it was going to be, to be completely honest. I mean, there were so many people talking about how this game was going to be so different from the other ones, that it would completely change the series. Well, I don't think it completely changes the series, so yay! Also, I know there were trailers floating around the internet. I have a trailer on my computer that shows what look like shadowy monsters and it tal...

Ristar (Genesis)

Ristar review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 02, 2005

It never fails. Look at each and every quality videogaming system thatís ever hit the market. They all have had their share of heavily-hyped flops ó those games that were awesome to hear about, but nightmarish to play. But, to balance it all out, occasionally you find a surprise. Buried deep in that systemís library, you dig up a game youíve never heard of before. A game that proves to be one hell of a playing experience. A game like Ristar.

Altered Beast (Genesis)

Altered Beast review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 02, 2005

Altered Beast is the old and rusty classic that most gamers see as poor nowadays. It was the first game on the Segaís Mega Drive, the classic 16-bit system known better as the Genesis. It was the first of Segaís arcade games to get a port that looked similar to its arcade counterpart. Back then it was quite big but nowadays itís something you can get some cheap thrills out of and play again at a later date.

Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True (NES)

Deja Vu: A Nightmare Comes True review (NES)

Reviewed on February 01, 2005

Wine cellars, back room casinos and more serve to set the plot somewhere just after Prohibition ended. Throw in a few alleys that connect everythingóyou canít just walk boldly down the street when youíre wanted, after allóand you still donít have more than what amounts to perhaps a city street or two. Itís only the secret passages and such that make this quest feel any larger than it is.

Ape Escape Academy (PSP)

Ape Escape Academy review (PSP)

Reviewed on February 01, 2005

The problem is though, try as they might, monkeys are not very good at imitating other people. Sure, dressing one up in a suit and giving it a cigarette may make us all smile, but its constant ass slapping and habitual masturbation is hardly the definition of quality entertainment. And that becomes an all too fitting caveat made doubly relevant once Piposaru Academia gets underway.

Phantasy Star Online (Dreamcast)

Phantasy Star Online review (DC)

Reviewed on February 01, 2005

Imagine playing a console game online with a bunch of friends that are named after DBZ characters. Imagine playing a game where you can communicate with just about anybody in the world. Imagine playing a game that is so incredibly addictive, you forget to eat and sleep for a three days straight. Imagine all that, and you find yourself Sonic Team's innovative installment of the old Phantasy Star series called Phantasy Star Online.
