The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask review (N64)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

Majora's Mask is a difficult game to review. The first time I played it, I hated it with a passion. However, I recently decided to give it another chance and I've now changed my view on the game. I've come to the conclusion that there are two things that anyone should know before plunging into this second N64 Zelda installment:
Thunder Force III (Genesis)

Thunder Force III review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

Technosoft's shooter series Thunder Force is something of an oddball. If you've ever played the original Thunder Force, give yourself a pat on the back. Being released only on several obscure Japanese computer systems, the game is difficult to get one's hands on even via emulation. Thunder Force II, luckily, was given a North American release as a Genesis launch title. However, the game didn't fare well with critics or sales, due to its strange emphasis on lousy overhead stages that just aren't ...
Kirby's Dream Land (Game Boy)

Kirby's Dream Land review (GB)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

When people think Nintendo, people think Mario, or Zelda, or Metroid, or even Pokemon. These are all very highly-acclaimed, very well-known, and long-running series that each lay claim to some truly superb games. In the case of Super Mario Bros. 3 or Ocarina of Time, some may even say the best games ever made.
The Castlevania Adventure (Game Boy)

The Castlevania Adventure review (GB)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

In the early days of the Game Boy, it was common for companies to take a popular NES series was the hot item of the day and release a really crappy, watered-down Game Boy version of it. This syndrome unfortunately affected such prestigious series as Mario, Mega Man and Metroid. Hell, with the Kirby series, it happened in reverse. And in an even rarer exception, Zelda: Link's Awakening even managed to nearly match its console counterpart.
Wizards & Warriors (NES)

Wizards & Warriors review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

It's like the old saying goes: good games are rare, and Rare games are good.
Gradius (NES)

Gradius review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

When asked to name a Konami game, the Gradius series--likely a mistranslation of "Gladius"-may not be the first games to come to mind. The series has always been aimed towards the hardcore shooter crowd, and as such, they've never been all that high-profile. The series really hasn't evolved much over the years, being your typical side-scrolling shmup, and its gameplay has always revolved around one central gimmick: the Option system.
Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES)

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

It's rare that one comes across a game whose very existence seems as unnecessary as Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. After the so-so sales of previous RPGs in North America, the developers at Square went back to the drawing board and tried to decide what it was that wasn't clicking with American gamers in the genre.
Raiden Trad (SNES)

Raiden Trad review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

Given the sordid state of scrolling shooters today, it's hard to believe how overcrowded the genre was in the early 90s. At one point, it seemed like every developer on the planet had their own shooter franchise: Konami had Gradius, Capcom had 1942 and its sequels, Namco had Xevious...of course, the trend wasn't limited to the major developers either. Irem had R-Type, Technosoft had Thunder Force, and an obscure Japanese firm named Seibu Kaihatsu made Raiden. Like many of its contemporaries, Rai...
