Trog (NES)

Trog review (NES)

Reviewed on April 16, 2010

Trog has been unfairly admonished as being a Pac-Man rip-off. Someone please explain how a game with a slew of power-ups, more enemy attack behaviors, three unique bonus games, and more intricate level design can constitute being a "rip-off." Sure, the main idea is the same - in this case you play as a dino (Pac-Man) as you navigate through single screen mazes while robbing eggs (pellets) from one-eyed cavemen named Trogs (ghosts), who would like nothing more than a nice, juicy d...
NCAA Football 09 All-Play (Wii)

NCAA Football 09 All-Play review (WII)

Reviewed on January 28, 2010

NCAA Football 09 for the Wii sports the All-Play gimmick that is supposed to help video game football newbies get acclimated to the game. However, the game is so poorly executed that it’s a bigger rip-off than the outrageous prices you pay for concessions and programs at sporting events. EA really fumbled the ball with the awkward controls and overall presentation, making the game virtually unplayable.
Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (PSP)

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 07, 2009

Fan service games can easily be forgiven for being mediocre if they at least pull off their intended gimmick well enough. Unfortunately, Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology fails on this basic principle, meaning the fans are left with a sub-par game.
Dragon Warrior (NES)

Dragon Warrior review (NES)

Reviewed on August 05, 2009

While Dragon Warrior can at times be a slow grind fest, the game exudes an atmosphere that is charming, yet filled with hidden dangers and secrets at every turn. It may take several sleepless nights and plenty of pots of Eight O' Clock Coffee to make significant progress, but the rewards are well worth the effort.
Legacy of the Wizard (NES)

Legacy of the Wizard review (NES)

Reviewed on July 22, 2009

Legacy of the Wizard has a lot going for it: colorful graphics, a rich soundtrack, diverse playable characters, a huge expansive world to explore, and plenty of items to collect and experiment with. While this sounds like a NES classic so far, one key ingredient is missing from the recipe: game play. To put it bluntly, the game play stinks worse than bad dragon breath and therefore spoils the entire dish.
One Piece: Going Baseball - Kaizoku Yakyuu (Game Boy Advance)

One Piece: Going Baseball - Kaizoku Yakyuu review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 19, 2009

“This is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball.” Those lines were spoken by the manager of the Durham Bulls in the movie Bull Durham. Although baseball isn't the most cerebrally taxing sport, modern baseball games make America’s pastime seem like a complicated affair for the uninitiated – You have to decide who to start, batting order, when to get the bullpen going, what deodorant the players use, and which back alley dealers they will buy steroids f...
Parodius (SNES)

Parodius review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 13, 2009

Some gamers prefer a realistic gaming experience. Parodius is about as far from realistic as the Detroit Lions are from winning a Super Bowl. This is a space shooter that has your little starship avoiding a giant – albeit lovely – Las Vegas showgirl, surviving tight spaces in a candy crafted castle, warping about the playfield of a pinball machine and even blowing up penguins in a bathhouse brawl. Parodius is absolute nonsense, plain and simple, but I’ve never had so much fun in an...
