WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 (Xbox 360)

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 25, 2007

Well, another year brings another game in the SmackDown! vs RAW series -- and this time it's going hardcore by featuring ECW. Like they always do, THQ has polished up the graphics and made everything look a bit better than they did before. Unfortunately, they also made good on their other yearly tradition: taking a step backwards for every step forward they make. While there are many new additions this year, there are things that were good about previous SmackDown! titles have been removed. Than...
Spider-Man 3 (Xbox 360)

Spider-Man 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on September 12, 2007

Let's face it: We can all remember a day when the Spider-Man games that were coming out were not so good (and ok, Spider-Man 2 for the DS wasn't either.) But starting out on the Playstation One, Spidey games began to show some true quality. They were fun! The newest incarnation, based rather loosely on the third movie in the blockbuster series is perhaps the best yet. Swinging through the air at 200 miles per hour in a to-scale New York City, 170 feet in the air, as you take on some of the most ...
Bujingai: The Forsaken City (PlayStation 2)

Bujingai: The Forsaken City review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 07, 2007

Do you remember the Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, and how Vin Diesel did the motion detecting, voice over, and modeling for the main character? Well Bujingai uses the same concept, except instead of Vin Diesel, it uses a Japanese musician named Gackt that you've probably never heard of. As odd as this sounds, the end result was not the failure that you'd might expect. Bujingai isn't a masterpiece by any stretch, but it's fun. It combines hack and slash gameplay with some cool p...
Red Steel (Wii)

Red Steel review (WII)

Reviewed on May 11, 2007

Red Steel presents what I feel is an amazing formula for a game. Whoever came up with the idea to wrap together a Yakuza story with motion censored sword fighting and gunplay should be offered a medal for his brilliance. I mean that's an idea for a game that I can really get into! I was pumped for Red Steel! As it turned out, though, Ubisoft just wasn't the developer to be put in charge of making such a game. Red Steel doesn't do the idea any justice whatsoever, and the game falls flat on its fa...
Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover (PSP)

Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover review (PSP)

Reviewed on February 01, 2007

Def Jam: Fight For NY: The Takeover, in addition to having a ridiculously long title, is also based on a ridiculously lousy idea. The game is a hybrid fighting-wrestling game in which rappers do battle with one another. It sounds horrible, and that was my justification for not playing this game when it debuted on the PS2. However, with the launch of the PSP version I again began to hear talks of it, and how good the fighting was. So, preparing for the worst, I decided to play the game. And thoug...
Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Game Boy Advance)

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 21, 2007

Kirby platformer games have always been loaded to the brim with quality and a unique style. Floating through the air, and swallowing enemies to gain their special abilities as our pudgy, pink protagonist is a formula that works, and one that would have continued to work if HAL had stuck with it. But instead of sticking with the tried-and-true method of making a Kirby game, they've decided to give us something new with Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. Taking a leaf out of the Metroid games, The Amaz...
Gears of War (Xbox 360)

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on January 02, 2007

When an army of disgusting, repulsive, and blood-thirsty beasts decide to tunnel up through the surface of the earth and slaughter billions of people, it can really put a damper on an otherwise happy and sunny day. That's what happened fourteen years ago on Emergence Day; a day where every major city on the planet was simultaneously attacked by the Locust Horde. This is the chaotic world that Gears of War is set in; and though we'd all hate to actually live in such a world, it makes for one hell...
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii)

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review (WII)

Reviewed on December 08, 2006

Zelda is a franchise that has captivates fans like few, if any other series can. The very title being dropped, without any screenshots or movies, is enough to steal the floor at game expos. Originally announced at E3 in 2004, Twilight Princess was no exception; and fans were immediately interested. The game faced delay after delay however, with promises from Nintendo that it would allow them to improve on the game. News of the delays consistently upset fans, but the delays were worth it. Nintend...
Donkey Kong 64 (Nintendo 64)

Donkey Kong 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

Back in the day, Donkey Kong was content with kidnapping damsels and tossing barrels at plumbers. Thankfully, starting on the Super Nintendo console, he picked up on a new habit: Starring in exciting platform games. In truth, he was only playable in one of the three Donkey Kong Country games, but that's besides the point. What is important is that time has shown if you create a platform game in which the playable cast consists of monkeys, and the bad guy is a pirate, scientist, or boxer -- depen...
Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy (DS)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Sympathy review (DS)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

Fullmetal Alchemist has become a somewhat popular anime and manga series on American soil lately. However, it is far more popular in Japan, as is obvious by the movie released that has yet to obtain an American release date, as well as the various Fullmetal Alchemist games released for previous handhelds, that will never make it here. The latest game in the series, Dual Sympathy for the Nintendo DS looks to be sealed with the same fate. Considering that the Nintendo DS has no region block, impor...
WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 (PlayStation 2)

WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Smackdown, first released on the Playstation console almost six years ago, has become THQ's flagship wrestling franchise. Since then, the game has been released annually, like traditional sports games. Last year's game, the original Smackdown vs RAW brought many new aspects to the table that shattered all predecessors,. Smackdown vs RAW 2006 promised to do the same. However, as great as the game is, it takes as many steps backwards as it does forwards.
Kirby Air Ride (GameCube)

Kirby Air Ride review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

In the past, there have been several great racing game spin-offs for popular game series. At the top of ladder, are games like Diddy Kong Racing, and Super Mario Kart. When Kirby's Air Ride was announced, all of the pieces seemed to be in place. Who wouldn't want to play a racing game featuring everyone's favorite Star Warrior, Kirby? The idea of racing through the world on a warp star, and copying enemies' abilities to use against your opponents sounded great. Unfortunately, the game was disapp...
Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES)

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 19, 2005

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest was a game made released in the States, after II (IV) and before III (VI). SquareEnix apparently thought that the sales of Final Fantasy II were directly related to how complex the game was. Now it is true that when they released Final Fantasy III, they would completely shotgun their own theory, but they had a different approach to the problem at first. Someone had the idea of making a game with less items, less magic, and a simple storyline. They definitely nailed th...
Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)

Shadow of the Colossus review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 09, 2005

Shadow of the Colossus was hyped to be a completely original experience of gaming. It pits a man against a large array of gigantic monsters called Colossus. It was also said to boast an amazing design in the arts department. Upon completion however, very few of the promised positive aspects were delivered in an effective way. Instead, what we got, was an absolutely huge land, with no enemies or action whatsoever in it, and a boss rush mode.
Jade Empire (Xbox)

Jade Empire review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 06, 2005

Bioware gained fame with games like Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights. These games deliver a roleplaying experience much different from console style RPGs, such as Final Fantasy. However, games like Jade Empire seemingly create a third pillar of RPGs. Games like Neverwinter Nights on the surface, looked like an open ended action game. However in combat, you quickly realize how it is a very crudely hidden turnbased system. Jade Empire, on the other hand, while holding all the best aspects of a...
Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel (PlayStation 2)

Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 05, 2005

"Humankind cannot gain anything, without first giving up something in return. To obtain something, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth." All Fullmetal Alchemist fans have heard that quote before -- Most can probably even hear Alphonse's voice as they read it. It basically sums up how Alchemy works in the Fullmetal Alchemist manga and anime works. People who have stud...
Mario Pinball Land (Game Boy Advance)

Mario Pinball Land review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 22, 2005

Nintendo's Mario, first appearing in the early eighties, has seen nearly every genre in his lifespan of over twenty years. His latest adventure has him once again, trying to rescue Princess Toadstool. There's a catch this time though: Mario and his pals have been put through a machine where they have been squeezed into pinballs! This isn't going to be like many of the pinball games you've played in the past however, this is not pinball with a Mario theme; This is Mario with a pinball theme.

ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 21, 2005

Who out there, could have lived through the ninties, and not have heard of ToeJam and Earl? What about the even more popular, second game in the series? Well, actually it's a much higher number than it should have been. The fact remains, that it is generally considered a favorite, among Sega Genesis owners. And though it took a while, the third game is finally here, and it looks like ToeJam and Big E. have finally made their way into the third dimension. Now the question you're probably asking y...
Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Eight years ago, the game that gave new meaning to the term "3D Game" and redefined the platform genre, Super Mario 64, was released to the world on the Nintendo 64. The game was well-received, and as most will tell you, it was extremely fun. However, one of the most complained about issues, was the lack of Mario's green-hatted brother, Luigi. It does seem rather ironic, that on the DS reincarnation of the game, amongst many new additions and features, is the ability to control Luigi. And indeed...

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Now if you watch TV, read magazines, or visit any game related site, you must have heard of God of War; A game that came out of no where, and gained prestige, like a snowball rolling down a hill. It was advertised to deliver an insanely violent, and overtly sexual experience, with deep and fluid gameplay. God of War, is a rare game that not only lives up to the hype it receives, but completely shatters all expectations for it by delivering one of the best experiences in gaming, in the last three...
