Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)

Metal Gear Solid review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 15, 2005

Stealth games – all the fun of sitting still, being quiet and generally trying to be as anti-social as possible. Metal Gear Solid’s token good guy, Solid Snake, certainly won’t be invited to any parties after infiltrating someone’s house, silently shooting everyone and stealing their plans for world domination (don’t deny it, everyone has them). But, if anyone can make a half-decent game from a genre which demands the player spend long periods of time doing very little, our anti-social he...

Fantastic 4 (PlayStation 2)

Fantastic 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 14, 2005

I had no desire whatsoever to play the Fantastic Four video game. The movie looked dull and the comics are a bit too campy for my taste. But if I’ve learned one thing in the several years Marvel has spent trying to branch out, it’s that the company is multitalented. The game wandered into my collection by chance, but it was by choice that my hands were glued to the controller and I found myself unable to put it down until the very end. Marvel has once again proven that it can make great comics, ...

Hydro Thunder (Dreamcast)

Hydro Thunder review (DC)

Reviewed on July 14, 2005

Yes, Hydro Thunder employs what some have described as the rubber-band sort of mentality. Here, though, it’s worse than ever. It doesn’t matter if you have the best time anyone has ever managed when playing the game. There’s about a 70% chance you’ll rank fourth or worse. That’s just how the game works. Completion times are irrelevant.

Ys: The Oath in Felghana (PC)

Ys: The Oath in Felghana review (PC)

Reviewed on July 14, 2005

As my mouth watered as I gazed at screenshots and salivated over the new Ys trailer on developer Falcom's website, I couldn't help but notice one thing; It looked remarkably similar to Ys III: Wanderers from Ys! Indeed, it did, and for good reason. Ys: The Oath in Felghana is not only a remake of the original Ys III, but a total overhaul, changing nearly everything but the music and storyline. However, as much as I'd like to say, "If you've played Ys III...

Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity (PlayStation 2)

Stella Deus: The Gate of Eternity review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 13, 2005

Stella Deus offers some of the better — but less daring — small-scale strategy RPG gaming to be found on any system. Stella Deus purposely avoids Final Fantasy Tactics' insane level of character customization and Shining Force 3's flashy audiovisual sense, instead choosing to settle into its own comfortably safe niche.

Ice Climber (NES)

Ice Climber review (NES)

Reviewed on July 13, 2005

I still fail to see why the general gaming population loves so many of these retro re-releases. I was looking through the “NES Classics” series (a.k.a the 'take advantage of our fan’s stupidity' series) and found the dreaded “Ice Climber” on the roster. Ice Climber was a bad game in 1983 so no matter how many times you try to repackage it and pimp it out today, it’s still going to suck. However, after the two Eskimos made their return in Super Smash Bros. Melee with new kick ass attacks and the ...

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

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

Reviewed on July 13, 2005

From the moment on I saw Baten Kaitos, I just couldn't wait for its release. The game looked so huge and epic. Finally, I got my hands on it, and played it twice in a row. Did it live up to my expectations? Almost.

Still Life (Xbox)

Still Life review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 12, 2005

I use the term ‘playing’ rather loosely. Still Life doesn’t usually feel like a game. Instead, it’s like reading an interesting mystery novel but all of the pages are stuck together and you have to fight just to keep reading. Though you do control the protagonists directly, there’s not much to do with them but walk from place to place, talk to people and maybe solve some irritating puzzles along the way.

Genji: Dawn of the Samurai (PlayStation 2)

Genji: Dawn of the Samurai review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 10, 2005

Genji: Dawn of the Samurai is special for many reasons, the least of which is its gold foil packaging. Seen as Sony of Japan's response to the US developed God of War, eager gamers have declared it a visual masterpiece with all the sword swinging hallmarks of an instant classic. Personally however, I think it's spectacular. Plain and simple like, capital S if you're still not feeling it.

Battle Raper II: The Game (PC)

Battle Raper II: The Game review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

Battle Raper 2 is about the far future of Earth, when a new breed of humans called ETERNALS have been created through genetic manipulation. There's some jibber jabber about paranormal phenomena and the symbol of God, which means Battle Raper 2 follows the standard "religion is deep" school of thought. It's a nice (but overdone) attempt by game creative staff Illusion to disguise how shallow the game really is.

Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti (NES)

Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti review (NES)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

At first the explicit violence that Splatterhouse is best known for makes it seem like a pretty unlikely choice for an SD game, but it actually ends up being the best entry in the series.

Half-Life 2 (PC)

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

Like Half-Life's Black Mesa, it's a place infused with an atmosphere and culture that you can only experience through microcosms. Even more so than VALVe's immortal debut FPS, Half-Life 2 is a single, seamless scripted journey that's not so much about where you're going as much as who you meet on the way. Sometimes, you get there in time to be a hero; others, you're too late, whether it's by seconds or years.

Star Ocean: The Second Story (PlayStation)

Star Ocean: The Second Story review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

Bringing the sultry sorceress Celine into the fray will guarantee a veritable cornucopia of offensive magic at your disposal, whereas laid-back pharmacist Bowman will dial up the damage with well-trained fists. Each member of the cast brings something to the battlefield that is unique to only them, something that no one else can replicate, ensuring that everyone has their own niche to fill.

Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy (PlayStation 2)

Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

Cutting away the epic pretension lavished on many other action games, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy boldly relies only on its innovation and competent execution. With lofty ambitions of psychic powers, Psi-Ops had just as much potential for utter failure as it did for resounding success. And while cult-classic System Shock and LucasArts’ fabled Jedi Knight have sheepishly tested psychic power implementation, Psi-Ops bravely brings this idea to the foreground...

Lagoon (SNES)

Lagoon review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 09, 2005

It’s a shame that the soundtrack is so damn rare or I’d strongly recommend just forgetting the game entirely and enjoying the fantastic score instead.

Sly 2: Band of Thieves (PlayStation 2)

Sly 2: Band of Thieves review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 08, 2005

Stealthy games are quite popular these days with titles like Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell. Really, with those giants setting the bar there aren’t many other comparable games in the stealth genre. However, gamers should not forget the little guy that is Sly, a raccoon thief that uses stealth as a means to obtaining vast fortunes. While the original Sly Cooper was anything but grand, the latest entry in the series has become one of my favorite games in just a short amount of time. Though it ...

Blaster Master (NES)

Blaster Master review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2005

Sometimes I think I’m too hard on storytelling in today’s video games. Yeah, sometimes plots get overly convoluted and sometimes you’re stuck in control of a “hero” who looks, sounds and acts like a reject from some ultra-lame boy band, but do I really have the right to complain? I’m from the old school, where stories were non-existent much of the time. And you know what? We often were grateful when those “plots” didn’t actually weave their way into the fabric of the actual game!

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 08, 2005

After the events in FFX, life resumed peacefully, with the threat of the extraordinarily hideous Sin gone. The setting is once again Spira and regions such as Zanarkand, Besaid, and Luca, albeit with several changes. The most noticeable one is that Spira is no longer the gloomy, almost claustrophobic world it once was where everybody was pessimistic and whining about their fate. People are now more cheerful, and it is immediately obvious Sin is nothing more than a souvenir now. To prove this eve...

Donkey Kong review (NES)

Reviewed on July 06, 2005

Frankly, I was dissatisfied when I first played Donkey Kong. In five minutes, I had cleared three levels and had made the horrific discovery that the game had reached its limit. Yes, Donkey Kong may be Nintendo’s true shiner when it comes to its long list of overrated NES “classics.” It was very disappointing but not as disappointing as this piece of information: They’ve repackaged this grossly overrated title and are charging it for four times its worth in their “NES Classics” range on the GB...
