KOF Sky Stage (Xbox 360)

KOF Sky Stage review (X360)

Reviewed on April 10, 2012

The first time I stumbled onto this game, I was confused. KOF Sky Stage? DLC for The King of Fighters XII? A side game where all the fighters died and are throwing down in the afterlife? When I dug further, I was stunned: a vertical shoot'em up featuring characters from the fighting series. One of those cases where fact is stranger than fiction.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (Xbox 360)

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City review (X360)

Reviewed on April 02, 2012

While unfortunate, those issues don't really bog down the central selling point of ORC that much, which is four on four online gaming. Neither lush in game modes (total of three without DLC purchases) or revolutionary in approach, I guess some could say it's the greatest weakness of this release, presenting a really simplistic venue. However, ORC more than makes up for that with constant struggles you'll endure in every match.
Punky Skunk (PlayStation)

Punky Skunk review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 31, 2012

Because when I picture a badass, I think of a skunk on a pogo stick.
Maximum Chase (Xbox)

Maximum Chase review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 25, 2012

Developed by Genki, the very same who created so many Tokyo Xtreme Racer games, MC is a hybrid title, meshing high-speed chases with on-rail shooting segments, all wrapped in a silly plot told through cutscenes involving live actors in front of CGI backdrops. It's as goofy as it sounds... which is why I wanted it.
Final Fight: Streetwise (Xbox)

Final Fight: Streetwise review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 11, 2012

For me, though, there's one particularly insane, earth-shattering scene that sums up all the wrong things about Final Fight: Streetwise. I would like to note this happens AFTER you defeat a monster that attacks with electricity and replenishes health by eating mutant rats.
Virtua Athlete 2000 (Dreamcast)

Virtua Athlete 2000 review (DC)

Reviewed on March 04, 2012

Sega's other track and field title for the Dreamcast, Virtua Athlete 2000, rarely gets a mention because of its under-the-radar release, so not a whole lot of players remember or even know of its existence. Hell, Sega didn't even publish the game in North America, despite the allure of being developed by the same team that created the then-hot Virtua Tennis. However, it was snatched up by Agetec, a publisher who was known at the time for releasing niche titles no one else would touch.
Urban Chaos: Riot Response (Xbox)

Urban Chaos: Riot Response review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 29, 2012

Rocksteady Studios takes the concept of a city under siege and runs with it, no apologizes included. This first-person shooter is a pure action title all the way, providing a nearly non-stop, hot-blooded, M rated adrenaline rush from start to finish.
Undercover Cops (Arcade)

Undercover Cops review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 26, 2012

Now, I don't know what the game's title, Undercover Cops, has to do with anything, since this Irem beat 'em up have zero situations that involve going under a different identity. Would've made for a humorous bonus stage, though. Thankfully, we don't play games in this particular genre for logic, and to my delight, the developers made sure to toss gamers into absurd circumstances, as has been noted with Mr. Fire Crotch.
18-Wheeler American Pro Trucker (Dreamcast)

18-Wheeler American Pro Trucker review (DC)

Reviewed on February 19, 2012

A game about big rigs? 18 wheelers driving across the United States of America? There's been plenty of unusual titles before this game's time, but still, it's not a premise you think would show up in a video game. Then again, it was made by Sega, a company that managed to turn taxi driving into a crazy activity, so if there's anyone that could make truck racing interesting, it's them.
TNN Motorsports Hardcore Heat (Dreamcast)

TNN Motorsports Hardcore Heat review (DC)

Reviewed on February 15, 2012

When the Dreamcast was released in the U.S. on September 9, 1999, it had a bevy of varied launch games to back it up. Some were titles everyone knew and had to get, like SoulCalibur and Sonic Adventure, then there were the rest, the "second choices" that spanned many genres: action, racing, sports, and so on. It was easy to get lost in the shuffle, fallen to obscurity, and it happened with quite a few. Hardcore Heat was such a GD-ROM, an off road-ish racing game of the arcadey kind.
Sega Classics Collection (PlayStation 2)

Sega Classics Collection review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 10, 2012

Easily one of the most deceiving titles ever, Sega Classics Collection does include an array of old-school Sega games, sure, but, besides an exception, the games featured are not the original versions. The titles in this compilation were first released individually in Japan as part of the Sega Ages budget line for the PlayStation 2, which lasted for five years and had a total of 33 volumes, though, at the time of this collection's launch, only 17 were available.
Rotastic (Xbox 360)

Rotastic review (X360)

Reviewed on January 23, 2012

It's not until you reach the 40s where Rotastic starts presenting some truly tough and frustrating levels. Scenarios within each level change the structure of the map as jewels are collected, blocks broken, and switches pressed. A typical example starts a level off very open and simple, only to turn into a nightmare as walls are moved in, cannons placed in the most irritable locations, and saws, rotating saws, are positioned right beside rows of jewels.
Power Blazer (NES)

Power Blazer review (NES)

Reviewed on January 15, 2012

If the comparisons between Power Blade and Mega Man are hard to see, then Power Blazer makes them painfully obvious: you control a small, chubby fellow that dons a blue helmet, and unlike his remixed, muscled brother, this guy can only attack in two directions, left and right.
Power Blade (NES)

Power Blade review (NES)

Reviewed on January 11, 2012

Beyond here, you'll take the Schwarzenegger-type avatar and pull him through a series of platform areas filled with cybernetic enemies with varying attack patterns, ranging from airborne robots to giant, bearded faces attached to walls that spit bubbles. Yes, such an enemy exists. And this is all done with the aid of a... boomerang?
Super Thunder Blade (Genesis)

Super Thunder Blade review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 02, 2012

Entertainment at its finest.
Golden Axe II (Genesis)

Golden Axe II review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2011

You're also bound to encounter up to a staggering... let me compose myself for a second... four enemies at once! That's, like, leagues more than the usual three from the predecessor!!
Otomedius Excellent (Xbox 360)

Otomedius Excellent review (X360)

Reviewed on November 19, 2011

After 26 years of Gradius games and various spin-offs, this is what the long-running franchise has come to: a new series featuring school girls in revealing outfits, piloting equally skimpy ships as they fight Bacterians invading Earth, who, by the way, consist mainly of women in interesting outfits. Also of interest is the ability to move a little cursor on the character select screen; touch their heads and get a cute response... touch their chest and watch them jiggle.
Sonic Generations (Xbox 360)

Sonic Generations review (X360)

Reviewed on November 06, 2011

It's great the controls feel so homey, giving players the chance to soak in the well-executed familiarity of Generations. If you've been playing a ton of Sonic games for the past 20 years, you'll sense the love with this product; it's fanservice overload. It works so seamlessly, too, thanks to Sonic Team's respect of the source materials, avoiding bastardization.
Deathsmiles (Xbox 360)

Deathsmiles review (X360)

Reviewed on October 29, 2011

Instead, you control underage goth girls with magical powers, tasked with stopping a demonic invasion on the verge of All-Hallows-Eve, ignited by a man obsessed with creating a portal back to the real world. Ye... it's not as creepy as it sounds.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (Xbox 360)

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon review (X360)

Reviewed on October 16, 2011

Then there's the payoff: an up close, incredibly detailed look at the destruction that never gets tiresome. Smoke engulfs metal, wings break off, and you'll sometimes actually see the pilot flail uncontrollably out their aircraft! I excitably let loose an explicit the first time I witnessed that.
