Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo (PlayStation 2)

Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 27, 2007

Meet Hyakkimaru. Heís the epitome of the generic video game samurai hero. He has the stoic attitude befitting of an ancient Japanese warrior, a stylish robe that flows along with his smooth moves, and a single katana that can cut through just about anything. He quietly traverses the countryside, fighting injustice in its various forms, saving innocent people from the morally corrupt and certain death, and trying to figure out his place in the world. His skills with a sword are unparalleled; allo...
Ganbare Goemon: Toukai Douchuu Ooedo Tengurigaeshi no Maki (DS)

Ganbare Goemon: Toukai Douchuu Ooedo Tengurigaeshi no Maki review (DS)

Reviewed on January 24, 2007

As the sun rises of the land of Edo, Goemon wakes up to the sound of angry yelling. Before he can even get his bearings, he is faced with a large mob of irate villagers armed with torches, pitchforks, spears, and other pointy objects. Apparently, theyíve come to either arrest Goemon or lynch him on the spot. Using nothing but his skills of disguise and a little luck, our hero manages to escape his likely death and meet up with Ebisumaru, his best friend/ partner/ ambiguously non-straight ninja. ...
Samurai Western (PlayStation 2)

Samurai Western review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 21, 2007

As the sun blazes high in the noonday sky, Gojiro Kiryuu prepares for battle. A few hundred paces away, a group of cowboys have their guns pointed at him. All of the residents have either fled the town or been shot to Hell in a hail of bullets. Such terror and murder is bittersweet; at least Gojiro wonít have to worry about any innocent bystanders getting hurt in the upcoming showdown. Aside from this lone hero, the only things left alive in this godforsaken town are the gunmen arming their weap...
Tales of the Abyss (PlayStation 2)

Tales of the Abyss review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 09, 2007

Meet Luke fon Fabre. Heís the typical byproduct of the nobility social class, a teenager who is spoiled rotten and assumes that the world revolves around him. He lounges around the estate grounds all day, stuffing his face full of free meals, and getting combat training from his mentor, Van. Luke is lazy, whiny, and utterly self-righteous. However, this arrogant little bastard does have a few issues that need resolving. He frequently hears a voice in his mind calling out to him, causing him to k...
Sonic R (Saturn)

Sonic R review (SAT)

Reviewed on January 07, 2007

Sonic the Hedgehog has several things going for him. Decked out in sleek blue fur and stylish red sneakers, heís the epitome of what a game mascot should be. Heís hip, cool, and fun to be around. Though his obsession with chilidogs isnít exactly healthy, heís still far more of an interesting and dynamic character than his rival over at Nintendo. Image aside, Segaís blue blur has one thing going for him: his pure, unbridled speed. Once those feet of his start up, itíll take an act of God (or a we...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved review (X360)

Reviewed on January 06, 2007

Youíre about to die. A few thousand yards away from your warship, a black hole is slowly consuming every particle of matter in the immediate area. Despite your best efforts to pull your spacecraft away, youíll get sucked in a matter of minutes and be stretched into oblivion. Your only hope of salvation comes in the form of the laser cannons mounted on the outside of the ship; a few well-placed blasts of energy will wipe out the black hole and allow you to roam the cosmos once again. But before y...

Victorious Boxers 2: Fighting Spirit review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 19, 2006

Meet Ippo Makunouchi. He was once a shy and quiet high school student, the kind of kid that bullies love to pick on. One day, a gang of such bullies cornered Ippo and beat the hell out of him. But just when things were about to get really serious, a professional boxer named Takamura showed up, sent the punks squealing for their mommies, and took the Ippo back to his gym. Seeing how emotionally distraught Ippo was, Takamura allowed the kid to beat on a punching bag to vent his frustrations. But a...
Odama (GameCube)

Odama review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 17, 2006

As dawn creeps over the horizon, you face another day of mindless violence. Roughly a thousand yards away, your enemies are standing poised and ready to attack. They donít seem like much; just a small group of country folk that refuse to be conquered. Rumor has it that these guys have something called an Odama to help them ensure victory. Youíve got a near infinite amount of expendable soldiers on your side, many of which have already crowded the front lines and are eager to attack. You c...
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin (DS)

Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on December 17, 2006

Meet Jonathan Morris. Heís the son of the late John Morris, vampire hunter extraordinaire and the late hero of Castlevania: Bloodlines. Unlike his badass of a father, however, Jonathan is moody, self-righteous, and occasionally tempermental. Considering the legacy of his family established from previous adventures, itís little wonder that this would-be hero has such a massive inferiority complex. He canít even wield Vampire Killer, the legendary whip handed down from the Belmont family to...
Jump Ultimate Stars (DS)

Jump Ultimate Stars review (DS)

Reviewed on December 04, 2006

Shonen Jump is back. No, not the ever-so-popular Japanese magazine. Iím talking about the animated reality in which Shonen Jump characters exist. The place is inhabited heroes like Goku and Piccolo from Dragon Ball, Monkey D. Luffy and crew from One Piece, and the elite ninjas of Naruto fame. Any of those names sound familiar? If youíre a fan of current anime, a devout reader of its respective mangas, or just watch primetime Cartoon Network, these characters ou...
Contact (DS)

Contact review (DS)

Reviewed on November 19, 2006

The Professor is having a rough day. Just after getting his trans-dimensional communications machine to work and contacting you, his ship gets attacked by some roving band of intergalactic thugs. As his spaceship dodges a volley of laser beams, one of the shipís fuel cells tumbles out at falls toward a nearby planet. The little bundle of energy happens to fall in front of Terry, an average teenager/silent protagonist extraordinaire. Before the young hero can comprehend whatís going on, the Profe...

Elite Beat Agents review (DS)

Reviewed on November 14, 2006

Youíre having a bad day. The electricity went off while you were asleep last night, effectively disabling your alarm clock. In an attempt to rush through breakfast, you accidentally let the toast burn. You ran out of toilet paper at the worst possible time. After working an hour and a half of overtime, your boss fires you at the end of the day. When you arrived back at the parking lot, you discovered that your car has been stolen and that your cell phone had run out of battery life. When you wal...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All review (DS)

Reviewed on November 12, 2006

As the witnessís voice echoes through the courtroom, only one thing remains clear: your future as the defendant is slowly slipping into oblivion. If there was any chance that the case could be won, itís definitely not stacked in your favor. The opposition seems to have an unblemished case against you; there are the photos of the crime scene, the evidence recovered, and the witness giving his testimony. Thereís just one problem: you know youíre innocent. That witness speaking in front of the cour...
God Hand (PlayStation 2)

God Hand review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 08, 2006

Once upon a time, Satan and his minions arrived on Earth and attempted to annihilate humanity. Using his supernatural abilities and unimaginably sadistic tendencies, the dark lord had almost all of mankind wiped out. But as everyone on the planet cowered and let themselves be subjugated into this new Hell on Earth, a lone man stepped forward. He didnít have any friends, family, or even a name. What he did have, however, was the ability to kick a serious amount of demonic ass. This hero was armed...

The King of Fighters 2006 review (PS2)

Itís been a while since the brothers wrested control of the cityís underworld away from Duke, a demonic thug and former crime lord. Despite the drastic regime change, old habits die hard. To keep up the tradition of Southtownís brutal and bloody history, the dynamic duo has let the yearly King of Fighters tournament begin anew.

Shadow of the Colossus review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 23, 2006

As the sun slowly drifts through the midmorning sky, a young traveler named Wander looks toward the horizon. A vast land is spread out before him, a sprawling countryside rimmed with rocky mountains and lush forests, scarred with deep canyons and ridges, and decorated with the ruins of a civilization of a bygone era. Despite the beauty, Wander is focused on only one thing: the massive temple in the very center of the land. With a quick tug of the reins and a swat of the flat of his sword, he urg...

Welcome to the 32nd century. Mankind has developed new technology, allowing them to delve deep into the vast emptiness of space. Many of the planets are brimming with civilization, including an interstellar communication system with gigantic satellite dishes. However, such advancements donít stop people from being power-hungry warmongers. In a bid for the dominance of the cosmos, nations have raised their own armies of elite mech pilots and trained them to become Mechwarriors. Tons of battles an...
Okami (PlayStation 2)

Okami review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 24, 2006

As the sun rises over the village of Kamikimura, its brilliant rays shine on a lone statue sitting in the middle of town. This work of art was created in the loving memory of Shiranui, a white wolf that had once saved the village from utter destruction a century before. Back then, a demon known as Orochi would annually terrorize the town into submission, forcing the people to choose a woman to be sacrificed. In a true display of emotional heroism (and outright idiocy), a young hero named Izanagi...
