Bad Boys: Miami Takedown (PlayStation 2)

Bad Boys: Miami Takedown review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 07, 2006

It doesn't take long to realize that Bad Boys is no mere game, but an abomination.
Grandia Xtreme (PlayStation 2)

Grandia Xtreme review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 01, 2006

Grandia faithfuls know that long dungeons aren't a problem with this series. Its Active Time Battle combat system is one of the best around, and Xtreme improves it.
Jaws Unleashed (PlayStation 2)

Jaws Unleashed review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 21, 2006

But once you get past its beauty, once you stop admiring and start playing, the problems come. Jaws was a movie about a shark that ate people in the 70’s. Jaws: Unleashed is a game about a shark that eats people in the modern day, targets chemical plants, destroys oil platforms, and sinks ships by hurling torpedoes at them, making him the shark equivalent of Captain Planet.
Wild Arms 4 (PlayStation 2)

Wild Arms 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 16, 2006

That might be the greatest thing about Wild Arms 4: Accessibility. The puzzles are tough enough, the battles take enough strategy and the plot has enough depth any deep-thinking gamer. But the frenzied gamer gets platforming action, a superior battle system and a story that never stops moving forward.
Space Station: Silicon Valley (Nintendo 64)

Space Station: Silicon Valley review (N64)

Reviewed on July 12, 2006

Silicon Valley doesn’t offer action, intrigue, heavy violence, or anything remotely ‘hardcore’. But it does have sheep, floating sheep, sheep with springs for feet, dogs on wheels, rats on wheels, hippos with fecal mines, rabbits with helicopter ears that crap bombs from above, huskies on skis, penguins with infinite snowballs, turtle tanks, irritable sea bass, hyenas with motorcycle bodies, and about twenty others that escape me at the moment.
Naruto: Ultimate Ninja (PlayStation 2)

Naruto: Ultimate Ninja review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 07, 2006

Taken as a pure brawler, Ultimate Ninja no doubt comes up wanting. There’s only one attack button. None of the fighters have that many attacks and combos, fifteen at the most. Every characters has specific moves, and some of the hidden characters have range and power advantages, but everyone does similar damage and moves alike; master one ninja and you’ve mastered them all. Topping that all off, everyone’s either extremely weak or extremely durable; it takes a ridiculous amount of time to win relying on straight-up fighting. All the more reason to not take this as a pure brawler.
Martial Masters (Arcade)

Martial Masters review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 28, 2006

Martial Masters is, quite possibly, the greatest 2-D fighter you’ll never play.
Suikoden V (PlayStation 2)

Suikoden V review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 23, 2006

Suikoden V takes place in the Queendom of Falena, a magical land where bunnies with knives attack innocent travelers and giant, marauding werewolves drop 200 skill points when they die. It’s called a Queendom because the Queen rules just like a king would, the king is just the commander of the army, and the Prince has no real power or anything because the king is always decided by a tournament he can’t even participate in. So, basically, Prince [Insert Your Name Here], is the equivalent of a Princess. Which explains why he looks like a girl. I guess.
Fight Night Round 3 (PlayStation 2)

Fight Night Round 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 05, 2006

Fighting without the energy bar, with no concrete way to gauge my opponents health and stamina, has made this game one of the most intense experiences I’ve ever had on any console; it’s amazing on multiple levels. The opponent’s body becomes your gauge; you’re targeting him, picking out spots, centering, focusing your attacks, faking him, looking to make sure he hurts in one spot more than the others. You land a solid blow and it hits with all the subtlety of roaring thunder; the controller shakes, the screen shakes, blood spurts from his mouth, you can feel the ribs give way as your fist connects.
Steambot Chronicles (PlayStation 2)

Steambot Chronicles review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 29, 2006

Steambot Chronicles is cool like that; there’s an overlying story, sure, but progressing it rarely requires you to do anything hard. Hell, it rarely requires you to do much at all.
Tomb Raider: Legend (PlayStation 2)

Tomb Raider: Legend review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 19, 2006

Fortunately, the boring fights only make up a small part of the game. You've got exploration. You've got puzzle solving. 1/3 suck, 2/3 good.
Justice League Task Force (Genesis)

Justice League Task Force review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 12, 2006

The problem here is that, even though Task Force does some things right, it nullifies the good points by being flat-out boring.
Spider-Man & Venom: Separation Anxiety (Genesis)

Spider-Man & Venom: Separation Anxiety review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 28, 2006

Separation Anxiety, however, does not have that style. Not a bit of it. It doesn’t progress the story with comic panels; it gives you a wall of text before each mission and lets you go. The storyline it came from was weak in the first place, and there’s no attempt to hide that here; most of your time is going to be spent fighting color-swapped versions of the same enemy in exotic locales like the mall and the sewer for poorly explained reasons.
BloodRayne 2 (PlayStation 2)

BloodRayne 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 18, 2006

A sky filled in a murky red haze, as if the sky bleeds. Barren and twisted trees littering the landscape. Bodies, decapitated, eviscerated, mutilated, desecrated, and perforated, blood strewn all around. Screams in the distance, bellowing roars following them, then silence. Deep atmosphere, supreme stuff, captures the mood of a raped world.
Kingdom Hearts II (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts II review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 11, 2006

Once in an extremely rare while, you’ve got exceptions. Mission Impossible II kicks the first’s ass. Aliens is arguably better than Alien. And Kingdom Hearts II is an improvement in every conceivable way.
Grandia III (PlayStation 2)

Grandia III review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 29, 2006

He's got this youth, this innocence that reminds me what it's like to have a dream and hold onto it. He's not perfect; he crashes, he fails, things don't go like he plans. Things look bleak, hopeless. But he just keeps going, and even though he's not the first hero with determination, he's one of the best portrayed and most easily identifiable. After all: Who hasn't dreamed of flying?
From Russia with Love (PlayStation 2)

From Russia with Love review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 24, 2006

Bad guys jump out from hidden spots, try to surprise you and suck at it. Mission objectives have you finding briefcases and other hidden objects, going on little fetch-quests. It's just really...really...average.
Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (PlayStation 2)

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 16, 2006

What we have here is a rare case; the only game I know capable of standing on a character and a setting. If the universe wasn’t so detailed and complete, if it wasn’t designed with such obvious care and forethought, if its plot wasn’t more gripping than many books or movies, and if KOS-MOS didn’t kick such ungodly amounts of ass, Xenosaga Episode I: Dur Wille Zer Macht would suck. Beyond those elements, there’s little to like.
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PlayStation 2)

Star Ocean: Till the End of Time review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 10, 2006

But, see, everything else about the game is sub-par at best. It’s a perfect example of what an RPG shouldn’t do.
WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 (PlayStation 2)

WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 02, 2006

Wrestling’s not so much a sport as it is a way of life. I respect that. And I respect Smackdown vs. Raw 2006 because it perfectly emulates.
