The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time / Master Quest review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 26, 2003

The year is 1986. Your heart is pounding, your breath shortened, and you simply cannot believe you finally won. The enchanted silver arrow embedded itself deep into Ganon's chest, and the monster exploded in a flash of light. All that remained was a pile of ashes and the Triforce of Power. Trembling, you walk over and pick it up. A doorway opens, and there you find Princess Zelda, trapped in her cell. You free her, and the end credits roll. You have mastered the most amazing game you ever saw, a...

Metroid Prime (GameCube)

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 26, 2003

Many people have commented on how Metroid Prime is the greatest game ever, lavishly heaping praise on every last bit. Many took their time gushing over the smallest details or how innovative the game was or how its perfect and all the whiners complaining about it being first person were all wrong. Others blasted the game, complaining about the controls or the scanning or whatever. But cut out the hype. Ignore the hyperbole and the bashing, and look at the game itself. Is it as good as some peopl...

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (PlayStation 2)

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 25, 2003

Try not to stare as you walk through a chapel and see some benches upright, some tossed to their sides, and still others draped by cobwebs. Everything looks so tremendously organic. There's also a lot of color variation. Even though textures are reused throughout, they're all so good that it doesn't really impact anything in a negative way. Even better, there's good variety from one locale to the next.

Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PC)

Mortal Kombat Trilogy review (PC)

Reviewed on October 22, 2003

The CD-ROM format has not been kind to the Mortal Kombat franchise. Believe it or not, behind all that 'button-mashing' and 'one-dimensional gameplay', there is a game engine hard at work, constantly loading new material into the fight. Whether it's Shang Tsung and his power to morph into other fighters (with all of their moves, combos, AND fatalities), or the changing battlegrounds and background music, the MK engine, at most times, is too fast for the CD-ROM.

Bandits: Phoenix Rising (PC)

Bandits: Phoenix Rising review (PC)

Reviewed on October 21, 2003

Imagine a futuristic world where the government has fallen, one just like any other video game world. Further imagine that the only way to get precious supplies is through fighting, much like a multitude of other video game worlds. Finally, imagine that the fighting takes place as you drive around various sprawling environments in stripped-down dune buggies -- now that's something a little different all together. This is the way of life for the heroes in Bandits: Phoenix Rising. In a worl...

Shadow of Destiny (PlayStation 2)

Shadow of Destiny review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 21, 2003

Dying is never fun. Knowing you're about to die is even less of a joyful prospect. But worst of all perhaps, is knowing you're going to die again and again and again. Such is the fate of Eike Kusch. That's you, in case you were wondering.

Captain Tsubasa III: Koutei no Chousen (SNES)

Captain Tsubasa III: Koutei no Chousen review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 19, 2003

I remember the first time I watched Captain Tsubasa. Football (or soccer) meant absolutely nothing to me back then, but morbid curiosity (or my tendency to try and make fun of everything) and boredom convinced me to watch the entire episode. And what I saw was very refreshing (as opposed to the usual decrepit anime). Captain Tsubasa had everything you could hope for: a good plot (albeit being a bit predictable from time to time), lovable characters (in most cases) and something else that ...

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 18, 2003

In short, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is the sequel that might have happened if Square weren't developing for the Game Boy Advance at the time. Then again, it may not have. You see, the game has all kinds of personality that we haven't seen from Square in, well... forever.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 16, 2003

When I first heard about Cel-Shading for Zelda, I was completely outraged. I harbored thoughts of giong to the Nintendo company and massacreing the man who thought of this idea. But as time went on, I got used to this idea, because Zelda still will be Zelda no matter what type of graphics it is in. So of course, the game was released, and I immediately purchased it. Once I started the game, I knew it was to be an enjoyable experience, and yet I didn't dive myself into it like past Zelda games. T...

Razor Freestyle Scooter (PlayStation)

Razor Freestyle Scooter review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 10, 2003

I'm a devoted gamer who will play nearly anything tossed at me. However, there's a particular genre of gaming that doesn't suit my gaming needs, and that is the sports genre. But, once upon a time, there was a little revolution in the sports genre, and thus, extreme sports games were born. And in that, I found entertainment through titles such as Cool Boarders and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (THPS). So, I naturally assumed that a purchase of Razor Freestyle Scooter (Razor) would ...

Boktai: The Sun Is in Your Hand review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 09, 2003

Imagine the Metal Gear Series if it joined forces with Castlevania, and some crazy scheme to get indoor-bound gamer-geeks out in the sun, where their pale skin will sizzle and pop...And you should get an idea of the general concept behind Boktai: The Sun is in your Hand.

SoulCalibur II (GameCube)

SoulCalibur II review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 06, 2003

Rather than force you to face nine million matches to unlock all the hidden characters and their alternate weapons, Namco went the story-based route. When you first begin this mode, you appear on a map and get to read some text. This leads to a battle with an opponent, where you'll quickly learn the basic moves that make up a typical fight. From there, you advance onto the next area, where there's more story to read and an excuse for another fight.

Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox)

Otogi: Myth of Demons review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 06, 2003

Otogi is really in a league of it’s own on Xbox. The closest game to it is probably Panzer Dragoon Orta, not because the action is similar but because both games deliver such a unique audio/visual impact backed with challenging, addicting gameplay.

SoulCalibur II (PlayStation 2)

SoulCalibur II review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 05, 2003

When playing in Extra Arcade, you can change what weapons your characters use in battle, provided you have obtained new ones. This can greatly affect how balanced a fighter your character is. Tamil can find a weapon, for example, that lets her take out anyone almost without effort, or she can pick a different weapon that has some attributes that are great and some that are a disaster. It's amazing how many ways Namco found to keep gamers playing.

F-Zero GX (GameCube)

F-Zero GX review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 04, 2003

As with the attacks, knowing when and how to perform each of these turns is vital during a race, since, depending how it turns out (pun sadly intended), a turn can lose or gain crucial seconds during a lap—consider, of course, that the difference between first and second is often a mere tenth of a second.

Enter the Matrix (Xbox)

Enter the Matrix review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 03, 2003

To be fair, the Focus idea is cool. It's a great way to put the player in control of what feels almost like a superhuman character. In this one regard, the game succeeds. The problem is that there's not much to do with it. You're just doing the same thing you were before, but now everything isn't as fast and visibility is low. There aren't suddenly more opponents and the environments don't suddenly morph to the point where they're interesting.

The Simpsons: Hit & Run (Xbox)

The Simpsons: Hit & Run review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 29, 2003

In the later stages, in the interests of raising the difficulty bar, the developers force you to drive from point A to point B in almost perfect form, then probably to point C in even less time, and perhaps even to point D. Sound tedious? It can be. And if you mess up, it's back to point A for a rehash.

Silent Hill 2 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 27, 2003

There are different types of horror. There’s the kind that goes for the obvious and cheap shock-scare, like Jason in a mask with a chainsaw, or the leering zombie who jumps out from behind the table accompanied by a scream and a stab of high-pitched violins. Then there’s horror of a more subtle nature -- the kind that taps into psychology to create a terror that lingers long after the actual experience is over, as the events stay in the mind, are turned over, examined, and expanded by the power ...

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber review (N64)

Reviewed on September 20, 2003

When you think of the Nintendo 64 console, what immediately pops in your head? Well, probably the first things that may come by would be the first three-dimensional Mario and Zelda games to be released, as well as the impressive first-person shooters known as Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. You might also mention the tragic departure of Square, leading to the loss of the greatest turn-based RPGs to be released for this system in my opinion. As a result, only a miniscule number of RPGs were releas...

StarTropics review (NES)

Reviewed on September 20, 2003

Two brave soldiers must fight to the death, knowing that only one will survive. In one corner, we see a valiant knight, wielding a powerful sword, capable of annihilating anything in its path. In the other corner, an interesting little fellow, carrying no type of protection or weapon, takes the spotlight. Is this guy insane? Does he want to be ripped into shreds by the knight's mighty sword? At first glance, it seems that the knight will be victorious, chasing down his unarmed opponent to a trea...
