Vigilante (TurboGrafx-16)

Vigilante review (TG16)

Reviewed on November 16, 2003

While it's often compared to Double Dragon, Vigilante is really more of an update to the kitsch classic, Kung Fu, for the NES. It's similar in that some of the burly toughs are limited to holding you in some kind of vitality-draining bear hug to hurt you - they can't punch or kick, like video game versions of Royce Gracie.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 (PlayStation)

Street Fighter Alpha 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 09, 2003

Street Fighter is really the only fighting series I like. The whole genre just seems boring and stale to me, but somehow this series defies that. As much as I enjoy my SNES cart, I was still only cautiously optimistic about this game. Yet it was still one of the major factors in my breaking down and buying a PSX. Fortunately, my optimism was justified. Why? Probably because this title is much more worthy of the name Street Fighter Collection than Alpha 3. After all, this game perfectly blends to...

Final Fantasy IX (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IX review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 09, 2003

Every review should be able to answer one simple and obvious question. Is the game fun? And yet, when I look at this game, the ninth in a highly acclaimed series (and a series I enjoy), I find it hard to answer that question. On the one hand, I did play through the game in its entirety, and I did like some of it. Yet, on the other hand, I can't pinpoint much about this game that I can point to and say ''this is good, this is right.'' The game itself is an enigma, pretending to get back to its ro...

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 09, 2003

When it comes to hyped up games, you will often get a polarizing effect amongst the people who play it. Most will call it the most perfect game ever, while a select few will claim the game is absolute rubbish and not worth touching. And these people have every right to believe so, of course. But why is it that there are so few people, or at least so few reviews from people, who enjoyed the game, thought it was cool and fun and all that, but didn’t really see it as excellent? To me, FFVII is a gr...

Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg (GameCube)

Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 08, 2003

This game has to be the biggest disappointment I've had in a long while. When I heard about Billy Hatcher, I was immediately convinced it was going to be a great game and I waited for it to come out, expecting a great hit from the makers of Sonic. What I thought to be a hit, was finally nothing more than a mediocre and linear platform game.

Super Monkey Ball 2 (GameCube)

Super Monkey Ball 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 08, 2003

One of Gamecube's launch titles, Super Monkey Ball, was a surprising success and Gamecube owners were pleased to learn that a new Monkey Ball game was on its way to the Cube, supposedly featuring more challenging levels, better multiplayer and rehashed graphics and gameplay. It sadly doesn't exactly stand up all of those expectations.

Pac-Man (Tengen) (NES)

Pac-Man (Tengen) review (NES)

Reviewed on November 03, 2003

If the preceding statement is true, there's only one thing more I need to tell you about, the game's conversion. This is because while the NES saw its fare share of ports, most of them sucked, or at the very least paled in comparison to their arcade counterparts. Not so here. Pac-Man from the arcades makes the trip to the home console quite nicely. All that's missing is the joystick, and if you have the NES Advantage, even that's in place.

Karate Champ (NES)

Karate Champ review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

When you see the title screen, you might have reason to be optimistic. It shows that two people can play (though I later learned that even a single person wasting time with the game is a small miracle), and the letters that make up the logo don't look half bad. Not only that, but the background music is some of the best I've heard from the system. It really is. Unfortunately, I've just described almost everything positive there is to say about the game.

Muppet Adventure: Chaos at the Carnival (NES)

Muppet Adventure: Chaos at the Carnival review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

Each level is distinctly different from the next, meaning there are basically four little mini-games you must pass on your way to the grand finale. The first of these is a kayaking trip down a little river. Kermit is the guy in charge, and he must steer his little vessel around rocks, floating logs, whirlpools, and the dangerous riverbanks.

Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom (NES)

Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

Ever why the Ninja Gaiden series died? There's probably a few reasons for it, mainly company related, but Ninja Gaiden 3 certainly did not help the cause. It's the worst of the 3 Ninja Gaidens by far, as Tecmo tried out these new ideas that just were not suitable for Ninja Gaiden games, as therefore the series bombed. It's still not a horrible game, however, and I enjoyed it for the most part. Just don't expect a high-quality Ninja Gaiden game.

Captain Skyhawk (NES)

Captain Skyhawk review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

The NES had a wide variety of games released over the years. It is my opinion that no system out there could ever match the wide variety of games released for it. Captain Skyhawk is one example of this. It may seem like an ordinary vertical scrolling shooter, but once you sit down and actually play it and get deeper and deeper into the game, you will discover that looks can indeed be quite deceiving. This is totally unlike mostly any shooter released during the timeframe. Each mission is differe...

Battletoads review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

I am sure there are a few readers out there reading this that glared over the other Battletoads reviews and found them to be informative but focused too much on one thing: challenge. So, I figure I'll just get it out of my system early and move on with what makes this game so good. Yes, Battletoads is hard. Really freaking hard. There you go, you now know what you are getting yourself into when you play this game.

College Football USA '97 (Genesis)

College Football USA '97 review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

Sports games really evolved when the Genesis was introduced. No longer were games with four teams and no modes acceptable. Now, sports games required a variety of game modes, teams, etc. College Football USA 96 was the first college football game ever released, to the best of my knowledge, and while it was a solid attempt, it didn't really feature a ton of game modes, plus it has problems delivering a solid and fun gameplay experience.

Ice Hockey (NES)

Ice Hockey review (NES)

Reviewed on November 02, 2003

Back in the day, sports games were different. Most of them were realistic to a point, but also took a lot of liberties with the game to make it, well, fun. There were no marathon season-long campaigns, name-brand players or realistic physics, just arcade-style action sometimes only very loosely based on the sport it was meant to represent.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES)

A Nightmare on Elm Street review (NES)

Reviewed on November 01, 2003

Anyone who knows me knows I put two movie series above all others: Predator and Terminator. But everyone also knows that I love the Nightmare on Elm Street series, and still consider the original to be one of the finest movies ever made. It had everything needed to be an effective horror movie, along with the most effective villian and plot ever assembled for a video game. The idea of an evil child murderer getting revenge for the people that killed him by haunting their kids while they sleep is...
