Saishuu Heiki Kanojo (PlayStation 2)

Saishuu Heiki Kanojo review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 25, 2009

Originally released as a manga back in 2000, Saishuu Heiki Kanojo tells the story of 2 young lovers, Shuuji and Chise against the bleak backdrop of World War 3. Living and attending highschool in the remote Japanese countryside of Hokkaido, the story begins with Chise confessing her feelings to Shuji. Though he doesn't take the relationship seriously at first, over time Shuuji finds himself truly falling in love with her. Then one day during a devastating attack on the city of Sapporo, Shuuji in...
Astro Boy (PlayStation 2)

Astro Boy review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 25, 2009

Tezuka Osamu (aka the godfather of modern manga) was to Japanese popular culture what Walt Disney was to America. In a country devastated by World War 2, Tezuka inspired hope for the future with a string of classic tales that gave even the lowliest of people something to believe in. From the radical genius of the surgeon Blackjack to a shiny future Metropolis where robots strove for equal rights, his stories have remained as relevant today as they were 50 years ago. Of his many creations, the on...
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Game Boy Advance)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 25, 2009

If you grew up during the 1990's then chances are you were exposed to the Ninja Turtle phenomenon in one form or another. Originally debuting in 1984 as a series of black & white comics by indie creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles quickly grew in popularity culminating with the 1990 release of their first, self-titled theatrical movie. At about the same time Konami of Japan were working on an arcade based, 4 player Ninja Turtle inspired brawler that was ultim...
Sweet Paradise (PSP)

Sweet Paradise review (PSP)

Reviewed on May 07, 2006

Quick show of hands, who here wants to date a pre-teen Japanese girl? Better yet, what if you could take this lovely young lady on a private holiday, just the two of you exploring the sandy tropical beaches of Bali... would you like that?
Street Supremacy (PSP)

Street Supremacy review (PSP)

Reviewed on April 19, 2006

Street Supremacy isn't just average, it's average without inspiration. You might wonder what it feels like to blast down a Tokyo expressway, grinding the slick, rain speckled concrete under tyre as a blind corner sends the back-end sliding out... well, keep wondering. This isn't the game for you.
Enchanted Arms (Xbox 360)

Enchanted Arms review (X360)

Reviewed on April 05, 2006

Once known as the Japanese RPG with an odd name, From Software's latest is both an outstanding success, and a bitter disappointment. It's the type of game that screams for more development time, caught as it is in a vapid middle ground, languishing somewhere between "could have been" and "almost was".
Lemmings (PSP)

Lemmings review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 19, 2006

Admittedly then, expectations for the PSP update were low. How were Team 17 going to overcome the interface problem on a system notorious for its poor controls? Long answer made short: they didn't. Instead, a series of workarounds have been implemented to increase user-friendliness, though in doing so, some basic design issues have gone unchecked.
Every Party (Xbox 360)

Every Party review (X360)

Reviewed on March 12, 2006

Okamoto's desire to broaden the market through accessibility was noble, it's just a shame he selected a console that's been solely embraced by a minor sub-culture of die-hard enthusiasts.
Guitar Hero (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 05, 2006

Gene Simmons once sang "God gave rock 'n roll to you", and yay, unto his children the Almighty did deliver. From Jimi Hendrix, to Black Sabbath, and Mega Deth, we've gorged ourselves on the power chord, and snacked on sex and drugs like they were going out of fashion. Unfortunately however, some were more blessed than others, and those that couldn't tell the difference between a fret and a spider were left to admire the party from afar.
Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams (PlayStation 2)

Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 24, 2006

It's a return to grace for a series in danger of losing itself, and in a way, reaffirms the belief that only Capcom know how to deliver a solid, third person slash'em up. You can have your 3D Castlevanias and your weak as piss American imitations, the real action however, once more belongs to Keiji Inafune and the Genma hordes.
Call of Duty 2 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on February 13, 2006

Until now, games based on World War Two have dodged a moral bullet thanks to the various limitations of the hardware supporting them. Arguments regarding the representation of mankind's darkest hour as a form of entertainment have covered everything from simple bad taste, to the trivialization of our greatest tragedy, yet the nay-sayers it seems, have been missing the point.
Bubble Bobble Double Shot (DS)

Bubble Bobble Double Shot review (DS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2006

When you consider the process of remaking a classic, it's surprising how many times the new & improved product eventually disappoints. In a perfect world, developers would cautiously add a fresh lick of paint, fine tune the controls, then ship the game without burying it under a pile of noxious, modern thinking crap. Take note Taito, that was your first mistake.
WTF: Work Time Fun (PSP)

WTF: Work Time Fun review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 23, 2006

Baito Hell 2000 on the other hand, wants you bored. It needs your brain on auto pilot, and will pummel it mercilessly with the same event until your eyes glaze over. And therein lies the hook: you're going to love every minute of it.
Quake 4 (Xbox 360)

Quake 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 18, 2006

There are few games that can boast an arsenal quite like this, and there are fewer still that actually make it work. From the rapid fire brutality of the nail gun, to the hyper blaster, to a dark matter cannon that fires quantum singularities, each and every weapon packs an awesome punch.
Wrestle Kingdom (Xbox 360)

Wrestle Kingdom review (X360)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Microsoft's conquest of Japan begins here. Designed to appeal specifically to local gamers and developed by genre specialists Yukes, Wrestle Kingdom features the combined talents of the All Japan, New Japan, and Pro Wrestling NOAH leagues.
Raiden III (PlayStation 2)

Raiden III review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 28, 2005

There's a noticeable absence of firepower on the screen at any given time, particularly when compared to the latest generation of shooters. As such, players new to the genre might find Raiden III the perfect stepping stone into a few of the more, hell-ish encounters. And so long as they're not expecting too much, they might even have a good time.
Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP)

Metal Gear Acid 2 review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

That being said then, Konami's evolution was never going to address such concerns. Depth, Rebirth, and Solidity, are what they wanted, and Metal Gear Acid 2 has nailed its targets in turn. Those familiar with the original however, should feel right at home as the premise itself hasn't changed. You're still alternating rounds with the AI, moving Snake across the map via the use of cards which are randomly dealt from a fully customizable deck.
Tetris: the Grandmaster Ace (Xbox 360)

Tetris: the Grandmaster Ace review (X360)

Reviewed on December 16, 2005

I guess it's fair to say then, Tetris: the Grandmaster Ace is something socially minded players will enjoy. Where a lack of ambition hurts its solo experience, the assorted Xbox Live modes have kept things fresh with a healthy dose of variety and some major, online competition.
Monster Hunter: Freedom (PSP)

Monster Hunter: Freedom review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 08, 2005

Unfortunately however, Monster Hunter required more than I was prepared to give, and its strong focus on online play, coupled with the burden of monthly fees, soon put me off. Apparently I wasn't alone either, as Capcom have gone to great lengths in order to rework the gameplay, porting it to the PSP while fleshing out the overall experience.
Densha de Go! Pocket: Yamanote-Sen-Hen (PSP)

Densha de Go! Pocket: Yamanote-Sen-Hen review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 29, 2005

One of the great things about living in Japan is the number of cute high school girls... another would be the train sims. I know, I know. Like you probably just did a moment ago, there was a time when I scoffed at such ideas as well. On a scale of cool to geek, train watching ranks up there with comb-overs and plaid pants, yet I can most honorably confirm that Densha de GO! Portable is the bomb.
