Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle (Genesis)

Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 19, 2003

Alex Kidd got a raw deal. He’s got huge ears -- but he managed to overcome them and retain some semblance of the cuteness that was necessary to keep his job as Sega Master System mascot. His first adventure, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, was brilliant, and solidified his role of superstar. But Alex quickly fell from grace as an overly simplistic, unrelated sequel followed his fledgling foray into 2D platformer cuteness. Things went from bad to worse for the Kidd faithful, when the horrid Alex Kidd in Hi-Tech World made its way to store shelves. And stayed there. A BMX spin-off racing game put the youngster to further shame, so it’s a wonder he escaped the pitfalls of drug abuse, alcoholism and clinical depression, all afflictions that embrace so many child stars in a tenacious grip of despair.

Rings of Power (Genesis)

Rings of Power review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 19, 2003

If asked who Naughty Dog software are, most answers would probably include Crash Bandicoot or possibly Jak and Daxter. You would be lucky to hear the words Rings of Power, and indeed, it was well after Crash Bandicoot was released that I realised that it was the same developer who was behind the games. Rings of Power was their only venture into the world of the Genesis, and furthermore, only their fourth game to be released – the previous three being on the PC, Amiga and Apple.

Rumors have it that Hydlide was released on this planet to turn humans into weaklings so a bunch of cutesy, bi-colored characters could invade us.

Virtua Cop (Saturn)

Virtua Cop review (SAT)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Light Guns are fun accessories. They add a whole new dimension to first person shoot' em up games, especially automated ones such as Virtua Cop for the Sega Saturn. But when Sega failed to release a solid first-party company Light Gun unit, gamers were forced to put up with un-calibrated third-party bull crap. People who lacked the availability to get any Light Gun of some sort, they were forced to tag along with the directional pad on the Sega Saturn controller.

A Nightmare on Elm Street (NES)

A Nightmare on Elm Street review (NES)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Don't deny it! You were afraid of Freddy Kruger. You know, the guy who was killed by his neighbors because he murdered their children... or something like that. Well, he comes back to haunt the remaining neighbors by entering their dreams and killing them there. Of course, the drawback to this is that they would parish altogether, asleep or not.

Pokemon Silver Version (Game Boy Color)

Pokemon Silver Version review (GBC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

The pinnacle of portable gaming is Pokémon. It doesn't matter what version, of the six, you're playing. It doesn't matter if you think Pokémon is nothing but a childish waste of time. The pinnacle of portable gaming is Pokémon.

Doom review (PC)

Before there was 3.0 Ghz hyper-threaded processors. Before people had 1GB of DDR Ram. Before there was 128MB DDR video cards. Before all that crap... there was Doom.

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil (PlayStation 2)

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil is one of those priceless gems that exercises that well-known saying ''Don't judge a product by its cover.'' K2 was a breath of fresh air for me. I hadn't been indulged in such 2D platforming bliss since the old SNES days, where classics such as Donkey Kong Country and Super Metroid reigned supreme. And since then, I've had the misfortune of playing a lot of sour games that, quite frankly, tested the loyalty that I have devoted to my beloved gaming hobby. Thank God the l...

Lunar Rescue (Arcade)

Lunar Rescue review (ARC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

In 1979, Americans' fascination with space was at its peak. The year marked the 10-year anniversary since man first stepped foot on the moon, and the country couldn't have been more into aliens and UFOs. Whether you were watching movies about them or playing the classics such as Space Invaders, interest in aliens was blooming faster than the speed of light.

Chicken Run (Game Boy Color)

Chicken Run review (GBC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Movies usually makes lousy games –at most, decent. Don’t worry; Chicken Run is no exception. It isn’t a decent game –rather, it is a lousy game. The repetition in this introduction can as a matter of fact be observed throughout the whole game.

Tecmo Cup Soccer Game (NES)

Tecmo Cup Soccer Game review (NES)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Once upon a time, grew a boy, in Japan, called Tsubasa Ozora. Tsubasa would ever since his birth act differently from his peers. Indeed, while his buddies would relentlessly talk about their favorite comics, movies and girls, Tsubasa would remain alone. It should however be said that Tsubasa was not really alone. He would spend a lot of time with his best friend. His best friend was a ball, a football (soccer).

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition (PC)

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition review (PC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2003

Does Unreal Tournament, widely considered as one of the best first-person shooters around (if not the best!), even need to be introduced? Hell, for many, UT is even much more than that (i.e. the best FPS around). When Unreal was released, it did what many games hoped to do, but almost always miserably failed. It caught gamers’ attention, and caused them to show interest in a genre they once ignored, or maybe even despised. I personally never cared for first-person shooters before that glo...

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Final Fantasy VIII is a game you'll love and hate. Where you may love the sci-fi premise, you may baulk at the love story. Where you may hate drawing magic from your enemies, you'll love the customisation of the Junction system. Where you may love the realistic character designs, you may not like the hero, Squall. Where you may love the abilities you can teach your Guardian Forces, you may not like summoning them. Where you may love Final Fantasy VIII, you may hate it.

Super Mario World (SNES)

Super Mario World review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

As gamers, we all have a certain game that stands out among the others that we've played. There have been dozens of games that I've played through, but in only one of those I can remember how to beat every level. If I couldn't play this game for ten years, once my punishment was up, I'd still be able to pick up the controller and enjoy it, even if it isn't challenging anymore. That game is Super Mario World. A lot of people begin these reviews with a nostalgic story of their fond memories...

SimEarth review (PC)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Imagine if you will, a newborn planet. It is completely covered in flame and magma. Billions of years pass by in mere seconds, and this lava has hardened into rock. In the blink of an eye, many billions of years have passed once more, and your world is now covered in oceans. Single celled organisms begin to emerge and multiply in the vast oceans. Volcanoes erupt, creating the first continents. New species evolve, and many emerge out of the oceans to become land-dwellers. Forests now begin to cov...

Silent Debuggers (TurboGrafx-16)

Silent Debuggers review (TG16)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Meet Leon. He’s your buddy, your leader, your home base. He’s also dead cool - he wears dark glasses indoors and rolls up his sleeves like a middle finger extended to the chilly corridors where he must do his tireless, one-handed work (no, typing on the computer!). Be just half the man Leon is, and play Silent Debuggers. Better still, be a smarter man, and don’t.

Tiger Road (TurboGrafx-16)

Tiger Road review (TG16)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Perhaps it's the simplicity of the gameplay that draws me in. You control a little bald man, Lee Wong (who bears no relation to Bonk, in case you're wondering). Never mind what the glossy, airbrushed cover depicts; you are not Fu Man Chu, and the Rogaine is not working. So just leave it alone it Costanza - there's no denying the complete, stark baldness.

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Super Mario Brothers is instantly memorable, and over time, its appeal only grows. It isn’t as goofy as its oddball sequel, nor is it as wondrous as the magical third game in the series to appear for the system. But it has a wholly old school personality that will please gamers who can find enjoyment in simplicity. If this isn’t you, stay away from this game; you'll likely faint at the madness of boss area loops and palette swapped environs.

Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting (Arcade)

Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting review (ARC)

Reviewed on December 17, 2003

Pick Ryu. Try to duck and use rapid short kicks to set up a throw and find the blue beast, Blanka, eating your face a la Hannibal (only our mutant might not know to have a Chianti at the ready). Worse yet, the Japanese fireballer might find himself being slapped about by an obese countryman named Honda, fresh out of the bath complete with sagging towel and hairpins. The move is called the 100-hand slap, though I’m sure a dizzied, vulnerable Ryu would not have had a chance to count them all.
