Galaga review (ARC)

Reviewed on May 26, 2008

Namco's Galaga (1981) is an interesting game. While it continues on the Space Invaders / Galaxian thread, it manages to be a much better game. How can that be? After all, the game play is the same. Or is it? Namco spent some serious think-time in the two years since Galaxian's release and returned with a killer game.

In a nutshell, the premise of Rare's Taboo - The Sixth Sense: type in a well thought-out and insightful question and get mindless gibberish back. Taboo claims to be able to see your future via tarot card fortune telling. How drawing upon a machine with the processing capabilities of a peanut accomplishes this is beyond me.
Dragon Warrior (NES)

Dragon Warrior review (NES)

Reviewed on March 01, 2003

Enix's Dragon Warrior never was a great game, but over the years it has accumulated legendary status. The only legendary aspect of the game was Nintendo Power's promotional giveaway juggernaut. As a result, undue claims have garnered, from the inane (''This is the game which turned the crank of the RPG machine!'') to the just plain incorrect (''This is the first ever RPG!''). Still, Dragon Warrior is the first Japanese style role playing game to be released in the United States, and, due to i...
