Soulcalibur III (PlayStation 2)

Soulcalibur III review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 08, 2005

Then, as your fighters battle across courtyards surrounded by gurgling fountains alive with plant life, or along the deck of a ship while flaming arrows plunge toward the water and other ships in the distance, the magic takes hold. Everything is beautiful, from the misty waterfalls with their shimmering rainbows in Talim’s stage, to the comets that streak across the skyline while you battle through an inferno.
D.I.C.E.: DNA Integrated Cybernetic Enterprises (PlayStation 2)

D.I.C.E.: DNA Integrated Cybernetic Enterprises review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 26, 2005

When the game works, it means you’re running around as a dinosaur, perhaps firing missiles or maybe just smashing through anyone stupid enough to get in your way. Such moments can approach sheer bliss. You can charge missiles and then release them in a round of explosions that sends enemies flying and racks up your combo score. Then, as your opponents reel from that assault, you can step in and smash them to bits with your tail.
Urban Reign (PlayStation 2)

Urban Reign review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 03, 2005

At first, its depth seems marginal. You can only punch, kick, grapple, dodge or run for most of the game’s first half. However, the finer points of each of these moves combine for some real mayhem. Later in the game, you can even pick up or throw weapons. Things really get intense. Finally, the ability to target specific body parts adds yet another dimension. That might not sound so good, but when you experience it, everything changes.
Capcom Classics Collection (PlayStation 2)

Capcom Classics Collection review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 02, 2005

Remember storming fortresses in Bionic Commando, then advancing toward enemy ranks in that cool overhead perspective? Remember swooping into a bay in 1943: The Battle of Midway to customize your plane? Those were some of the great moments of 8-bit gaming, and after that there were the 16-bit ports with their stunning visuals and digitized voices. I expected to relive all of that now, except I knew the games would look even better. The thing is, the games do look better… but they’re not as much fun.
Burnout Revenge (Xbox)

Burnout Revenge review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 22, 2005

As the game’s title suggests, revenge is a common theme. The ‘Takedown’ has returned from the last game, but now it’s all about evening the score. If another racer plows into your side and sends you spiraling into a concrete slab, the screen incites you to have your revenge. When you succeed, your boost meter grows. Races become that much more thrilling.
InuYasha: Feudal Combat (PlayStation 2)

InuYasha: Feudal Combat review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 08, 2005

Characters also benefit from the same visual strength. They move with surprising fluidity, just as they would in the hand-drawn cartoon. Sesshomaru leaping into the air, ethereal sword-whip winding about him before lashing forward in a graceful arc is truly a thing of beauty. Each character moves as he or she should, from the peppy movements of the fox demon Shippo to the methodical strikes Naraku manages (usually from a safe distance). The graphics aren’t there just to look pretty, though.
Pac 'N Roll (DS)

Pac 'N Roll review (DS)

Reviewed on August 26, 2005

When you swipe the stylus across the screen, his counterpart in the top screen will move a bit. If you repeatedly make quick but short strokes, he’ll sort of wander about as desired. Swift and longer brushes, particularly those executed in a gattling-gun sort of sense, will send him flying along the various ledges and hills and whatever else is in sight. That’s almost all there is to controlling Pac-Man. Almost.
Sigma Star Saga (Game Boy Advance)

Sigma Star Saga review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 22, 2005

As you wander about, beams of light sometimes begin to rise around your body and you won’t be able to move. In terms of plot, this means one of the ships is asking the armor you wear for assistance. In terms of gameplay, it means you’ve just been invited to a mandatory random battle. Before you can resume whatever you were doing, you must pilot your craft through a side-scrolling shooter stage.
Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome (PlayStation 2)

Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 18, 2005

Any character can learn the skills associated with any of the numerous classes available in the game. This means that you can start a character out as a witch, learn a few powerful spells, then switch her over to the archer class to boost her strength and speed. Any reincarnated party member retains the stat-boosting skills he or she may have gained in the previous life. The minute you grasp this concept, its enormity hits you like a Mac truck.
Nanostray (DS)

Nanostray review (DS)

Reviewed on August 03, 2005

Some games are fond of throwing oceans of bullets your way and calling it thrilling. There’s none of that here. You actually have room to move. Not only that, but one collision with a stray bullet isn’t your end. You still need to avoid shield-draining projectiles, but losing sight of them amidst the gorgeous backgrounds isn’t fatal.
Sid Meier's Pirates! - Live the Life (Xbox)

Sid Meier's Pirates! - Live the Life review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 23, 2005

When you talk to the barmaid one time, all is fine. A few visits later, you might find her being accosted by a surly captain of the guard. Time for a duel! When you head over to the mansion and talk to the governor’s daughter, she may invite you to the next royal ball. Time for a dance! You just never know, and you’re never bound to follow orders.
Polarium (DS)

Polarium review (DS)

Reviewed on July 21, 2005

You’re in the middle of a long string that will clear all visible blocks at once. As you whip your stylus over the top row to put the final touches on your combo, suddenly you find that the on-screen detonator has not followed. Why? Because in a second, blocks will fill that space you passed through. You already knew that. It’s the reason you were in such a hurry.
The Typing of the Dead (Dreamcast)

The Typing of the Dead review (DC)

Reviewed on July 15, 2005

Sometimes, the word will be simple, something like ‘Montana’ or even a simple phrase like ‘Adios’ or ‘Game Over.’ Other times, you’ll be asked to type something ridiculous. It’s funny that whoever put the game together thought to include words like ‘mullet’ and discussions about bed-wetting and sexuality.
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.
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.
Conker: Live & Reloaded (Xbox)

Conker: Live & Reloaded review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 23, 2005

Each location contains a few attractions and links to one or two other zones. You’ll have to dash between them throughout your adventure if you want to uncover everything, Metroid-style. This was probably intended to make you feel like you’re really exploring a beautiful cartoon world, but the result is just a lot of dull backtracking. It’s not like enemies suddenly return when you re-visit a given area.
Come See Me Tonight 2 (PC)

Come See Me Tonight 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on June 16, 2005

Suddenly, all you care to do is skip through the text and sleep with the girl of your choice. Text, text, text, sex, text, text, text, text, sex. Eventually, the pattern gets so tedious that you’re tempted to cycle through everything. Yes, that includes the sex. When a hentai game has you weary enough that you don’t even find yourself interested in the bountiful bosoms, you know something’s wrong.
Little My Maid (PC)

Little My Maid review (PC)

Reviewed on June 10, 2005

Days in Little My Maid pass based on how much stamina you have remaining. This is neat in that it makes you feel like you have more control over the game’s progression, but it’s actually deceptive. Playing around with your exploration options soon reveals that you can only wander the slightest bit from the beaten path before you hit a dead end and have to get back to your main form of amusement: sex with your hosts.
True Lies (SNES)

True Lies review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 02, 2005

Considering all the options available these days, there’s no excuse for True Lies to continue existing. Someone should gather the cartridges, bundle them with a two-ton weight and toss them into a massive swimming pool. Then maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger can fire a rocket launcher at them, just for good measure. The world would be a better place.
Battletoads & Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team (SNES)

Battletoads & Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 02, 2005

There’s a reason for this irritating flaw, though: Rare wanted you to play with a friend. Though the game lets thugs gang up on you and throw you into an endless circle of punishment, you and a buddy can turn the tables. One of you can be a toad, the other a human. Or maybe you both like characters named after skin ailments. Whatever the case, having a friend along improves the experience.
