Puss 'N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure (NES)

Puss 'N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure review (NES)

Reviewed on August 08, 2003

Just when you're starting to really enjoy yourself, you realize that you've reached its conclusion. Then you look back and realize with horror that it only took you perhaps 15 minutes to do so. From the first stage to the last, they are quick little jaunts almost without exception. The vehicle rides are all quite fun, but they end almost as soon as they begin, and there are arguably too many of them.
Faceball 2000 (SNES)

Faceball 2000 review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 06, 2003

The system simply wasn't made to handle three dimensions, and that's all there is to it. Really, Faceball 2000 is quite the impressive technical feat. Even though the floors are featureless, and the walls, and even though the balls look more like misshapen blobs, it's impossible to forget that what you're looking at shouldn't have been possible on Nintendo's gray and purple box of mystery.
Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 (NES)

Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on August 04, 2003

The first level is pretty good, a promising start for the game. The heroes run through a restaurant in an effort to diffuse a bomb someone has set in the building. It's not a match for the first stage in the first game, but it's good, a promising start. Unfortunately, things never really get any better.
Ys III: Wanderers From Ys (SNES)

Ys III: Wanderers From Ys review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 29, 2003

Every time you complete a dungeon, you can count on an interesting plot twist, some new items, and a sense of accomplishment that should be at odds with your realization that the dungeon you just conquered wouldn't have puzzled a two-year-old, but somehow isn't.
Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color (PlayStation 2)

Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 10, 2003

In case you haven't heard, Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color is a role-playing game that eschews the massive world, grand storyline, and extensive inventories so many consider staples of the genre. Instead, it embraces a system through which gamers collect magic crystals and parts, then use them to create just about any character they can imagine. For the first time, we have the chance to play a role-playing game that isn't limited so much by hardware, but rather our own imaginations.
Mega Man Network Transmission (GameCube)

Mega Man Network Transmission review (GCN)

Reviewed on June 21, 2003

By the time you reach the end of the game, you'll be quite familiar with most of those skills. There are 137 in all. You gain these by defeating enemies, who sometimes leave behind bits of data. It pays to continue defeating the same enemy, too, because the more of one type of data you have, the more times you can use it within a level.
Beyond the Beyond (PlayStation)

Beyond the Beyond review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 18, 2003

I can say without a hint of malice that I've always liked the towns in such 16-bit titles, and that they are present in full force in Beyond the Beyond. Each town does look different from the next. Years later, there is the slim possibility you'll find yourself remember your first trip through that one town at night, or the descent into the volcano, or that pyramid I mentioned before.
.hack Part 2: Mutation (PlayStation 2)

.hack Part 2: Mutation review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 19, 2003

Old characters return, but they're hardly involved. Mia, in fact, only shows up in one mission with a reference to a practical joke from the previous game. Her presence here is token, as is the presence of the majority of the cast. It's quickly becoming evident that the story here is really revolving around Kite and BlackRose.
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Game Boy Advance)

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 13, 2003

Nothing feels particularly refreshing. You've seen all the tricks before, they impressed you at the time, and now there's this overwhelming sense of deja vu. Some of the absolute coolest bosses in the game, for example, feel like they were ripped straight out of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Which makes sense, as they obviously were.
Rayman 3 (Game Boy Advance)

Rayman 3 review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 01, 2003

Even more impressive are the numerous environments he'll explore. These for the most part are swamps, lava caves, and fortresses, but they all look vibrant. The level of detail is also amazing. Then there are the enemies to consider. Their animations also are impressive, to the point where you sometimes must watch them in order to determine when it's safe to attack.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (PlayStation 2)

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 26, 2003

No, multi-player doesn't truly shine until you unlock cooperative levels. This is done by completing those same levels in the single-player mode. Once that's done, the game suddenly doubles in value. Whenever a new friend comes over, the two of you can take on some missions together and lose a few hours without even realizing they went anywhere.
Super Puzzle Fighter II (Game Boy Advance)

Super Puzzle Fighter II review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 24, 2003

While you're puttering about on your half of the screen, your opponent is on the other side doing the same thing. Whenever you score a combo or string of combos, blocks will be rained down on your opponent. These blocks do not solidify for around 4 or 5 drops of other blocks, yet they quickly build up on the screen and make things difficult for your dastardly foe.
Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 24, 2003

A general situation is that you save and refill your life, find a new boss, die, return with a strategy, die after almost winning, then come back a third time and find victory. There's never a feeling that the game is handing you the next upgrade on a silver platter, and only seldom are you likely to feel truly overwhelmed. Even then, victory might be yours the next time you try.
Strikers: 1945 (PlayStation)

Strikers: 1945 review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 14, 2003

Everything remains steady the whole way through, even when enough sprites are flying around the screen that the sweating geek inside of you cringes and expects smoke to start pouring out of the Playstation. It's amazing to see so much solid detail to the levels and so many projectiles peppering the environment, but no noticeable drop in framerate.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

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

Reviewed on April 05, 2003

It's at this point, where you're wondering if you should just grit your teeth and sail against the wind or play the baton again, that you start scratching your head and wondering if something is wrong. The answer, of course, is 'yes.' This one little flaw, repeated into perpetuity, is enough to seriously interfere with your enjoyment of what otherwise is a stunning experience.
Panic Restaurant (NES)

Panic Restaurant review (NES)

Reviewed on February 28, 2003

A fun, well-executed game that ultimately doesn't succeed so much as it could have because it's over almost before it begins, Panic Restaurant is still a title worth playing. Particularly if you manage to find it in a bargain bin somewhere.
.hack Part 1: Infection (PlayStation 2)

.hack Part 1: Infection review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 17, 2003

Let the buff guy go in and take the damage while you back him up with healing spells to keep him from dying. If he should die, you can always revive him with the appropriate item. Unfortunately, your buddies won't return the favor. Even if you buy them healing items and hand them over, those friends of yours will just stare blankly at your ghost should you happen to perish in battle.
Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (PlayStation 2)

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 09, 2003

As Sly Cooper, you'll be able to learn quite a bit as one page of the Thievius Raccoonus after another falls into your paws. There are somewhere around 15 moves--some of them merely enhancements of simpler ones--that you can learn. But here's the best part: none of them are required. You can go through the game without learning a single one if you're so inclined.
Jet X2O (PlayStation 2)

Jet X2O review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 04, 2003

Don't pass through enough gates or perform enough tricks and your opponents will leave you in their wake for certain. Get too experimental and try tricks you can't manage, and you'll wipe out and loose a huge chunk of that carefully-acquired rocket power. Success in a race means you've learned to walk the fine line between daring and intelligent, with just enough attention to each attribute.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 30, 2003

Part of the problem is that the turtles are mostly fighting the same enemies, no matter what twist the story may take. You see the same guys in just about every stage, with only the occasional difference that is likely to be the same guy with a palette swap and a slightly different AI routine. You'll learn to anticipate what moves you should make not by shape, but by color.
