Life Force (NES)

Life Force review (NES)

Reviewed on September 12, 2003

Gradius was a very fun game released by Konami during the old days of the NES. It was one of the original horizontal shooters, and it proved to be a lot of fun, and brought lots of innovation to the table in an attempt to prove it just wasn't another lame shooting game. They succeeded and managed to make one of the most interesting and action-packed shooters of its generation, despite the relative slow pace of the game.
Madden NFL 2002 (PlayStation 2)

Madden NFL 2002 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

I do some foolish things, I admit. Buying Madden 2002 the day Madden 2003 came out was a pretty foolish thing to do, but I had my reasoning. I want to review a lot of Playstation 2 games, and having a variety of sports games would have helped. Plus, I was able to buy four games for the price of Madden 2003, and I ended up getting it a few weeks later, anyways. I didn't expect Madden 2002 to compare favorably to Madden 2003, but it actually does, and in some aspects is actually a superior game. I...
Legaia 2: Duel Saga (PlayStation 2)

Legaia 2: Duel Saga review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

For those of you that have talked to me about video games for more than 10 minutes probably know by now, I consider Legend of Legaia to be one of the greatest video games of all time. I even place it number two in my all time greatest video games list, behind only the equally great RPG Final Fantasy VII. It was a truly special game, with awesome battles, a very unique and fun magic system, and an original storyline with 3 of the best characters ever.
Final Fantasy X (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

The Final Fantasy series has been out for many years now, spanning many different platforms, and it has turned into one of the most beloved and revered video game series to ever grace the planet. It has certainly become one of my favorite game series, if not my favorite, and has become a series that all role playing games wish to become one day. Every game has been hyped and for the most part always delivers. Amazing that such a last gasp effort from a guy about to be broke turned into the most ...
Dragon Warrior III (Game Boy Color)

Dragon Warrior III review (GBC)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

The Dragon Warrior series has long been one of the more underappreciated and undervalued series.. in America. As most of us know by now, it is a huge deal in Japan. However, many people in America love this series, as well, despite the fact 5 and 6 never came out in America for some unknown reasons. So, Enix decided to port over some Dragon Warrior games for the Game Boy... and they chose the first 3. Now, 4 is one of the best NES games ever, and 5 and 6 never came out in America, while the firs...
Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

When Metroid came out for the NES way back in the ancient days when 8 bit graphics were considered cool, I was enamored with the unique type of gameplay it featured. Sure, the game was mighty challenging due to the lack of a map feature and the fact that 90 percent of the rooms looked exactly like one another minus the different color schemes, but most of the fun and intrigue came from mapping out the areas by yourself and then collecting items that would help you get from Point A to Point B. Su...
Blaster Master 2 (Genesis)

Blaster Master 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

The original Blaster Master was one of the defining moments of the early-generation NES. Featuring all the qualities needing to be a terrific video game, it is still one of my favorite video games of all time. Of course, like a majority of all video games, it had one problem.
Streets of Rage 2 (Genesis)

Streets of Rage 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

There has not exactly been a lack of beat-em-up side scroller games released over the years. Despite the dwindling popularity of the classic genre, the SNES and Genesis had a ton of great ones to choose from. One of the better known (and highly rated) ones was a Genesis game called Streets of Rage 2. Almost everyone I talk to makes it seem like an extraordinarily fun beat-em-up game with tons of innovative features.
Oregon Trail (PC)

Oregon Trail review (PC)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

There are some games that we played as kids that we'll never forget. Oregon Trail is one of those games for me. What kid who grew up in the 80's/90's hasn't at least seen someone playing this game at school? I spent many a day in elementary school playing this classic. It was educational, but you wouldn't know it, because this game is just SO much fun to play. I seriously had a blast every time when I fired up Oregon Trail, and it's a game that requires brain as well as brawn to win.
NHL FaceOff '97 (PlayStation)

NHL FaceOff '97 review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

It's always hard for me to justify giving high scores to old sports games -- not talking about classics like Tecmo Super Bowl, of course, but games in a series, like Madden 95, or NBA Live 96. Not because they're not fun, but because the later games in the series are SO much better, and there's no reason to actually play the game in question when there's so many other games in the series to choose from.
Activision Classic Games (PlayStation)

Activision Classic Games review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

Activision Classics is a great game. There, I got that out of my system. The thing about the game is that it is not just one game. It is many games put into one. In fact, it is 30 of the most classic Activision games ever, put onto one disc for the Sony Playstation. I think this was a great idea that was actually done pretty well. The only main complaint I have was all the loading times that accompained the disc, but those were to be expected. It just felt a little unusual seeing all those loadi...
Mega Man II (Game Boy)

Mega Man II review (GB)

Enough already, Capcom.
Breath of Fire (Game Boy Advance)

Breath of Fire review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

Breath of Fire was a game released by Squaresoft but produced by Capcom way back in 1992. I should have known something was up right off the bat. The official excuse I keep hearing is that Capcom was too weary of selling a RPG in America, so they licensed the king of all that is RPGing to publish the game. While this makes sense, I have also heard an interesting theory that said Capcom didn't think the game was all that great, and therefore let Square handle it in a last-ditch attempt to sell co...
Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Game Boy Advance)

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 31, 2003

  I remember when I wanted a sequel to Symphony of the Night. It seems like such a long time ago now, since there have now been THREE Castlevania games on Game Boy Advance, and they've been released in a span of about three years. You may think that the games suffered from a lack of quality due to the quick turnover rate of them, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Chrono Cross review (PSX)

A wise man once said, ''Thus you’re epic journey into the realms begin, tis a journey only the brave should take.. ''
Puss 'N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure (NES)

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

Reviewed on April 16, 2003

I have enjoyed a wide variety of games over the years, ranging from some of the popular favorites, to some of the more unknown ones, to the very bizarre ones. I think the game reviewed here falls under the third category. Puss and Boots: Pero's Great Adventure is a weird game. It's fun, but let's face it, any game which involves a mouse trying to save a cat by going around the world is just a TAD weird, don't you think? Like I said, this game is fun as hell, and I really enjoyed it. It is one o...
NHL Stanley Cup (SNES)

NHL Stanley Cup review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

I have never really been a huge fan of hockey, although I have always been a fan of sports in general. I have never been a huge fan of hockey, but to say I have never been a fan of hockey at all would be a huge blatant lie. The fact of the matter is, I like hockey. I used to be a hockey player myself, in fact. And while I do consider the game to be rather boring to watch on television, I am still a pretty big fan of it. My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they have been for many yea...
Final Fantasy Chronicles (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy Chronicles review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

Is Final Fantasy Chronicles worth buying? YES! It's one of, if not the best, premiere compliations ever released, and it is a truly great game, as it hosts two of the greatest games ever made. I'd definitely reccomend buying it!
Breath of Fire IV (PlayStation)

Breath of Fire IV review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

Enjoying the Breath of Fire series has never been a series easy to enjoy. Ever since the original graced the presence of the SNES, the games have been mired in the doldrums of mediocrity. However, there was hope. After the frustratingly boring third release, Capcom decided that they were going to completely change the series and create a fourth game. However, as soon as I read the preview, there was a major question that needed to be answered.
Rygar (NES)

Rygar review (NES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

When asked to name their favorite video games of all time, chances are the name Rygar will not show up on most people’s lists. It was not a widely popular and recognized game when it was released in the Arcades, even though it was a pretty fun game that I enjoyed playing a lot. However, even fewer people have heard of Rygar for the Nintendo Entertainment System. And this is a true shame, in my opinion. After all, I had enjoyed playing the Arcade version of this classic game immensely, and I stil...
