Puyo Puyo Tsuu CD (Turbografx-CD)

Puyo Puyo Tsuu CD review (TGCD)

Reviewed on August 21, 2006

Basically, Puyo Puyo Tsuu CD is a competitive puzzle game, similar to Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo. Like any "well" puzzler, the goal is to keep your playfield clean... but in Puyo Puyo, high-scoring chain reactions cause additional slime-like Puyos to fall and infest your challenger's well.
Prey (Xbox 360)

Prey review (X360)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

Prey's basic concept, which most players have seen five or six times before, is this: a reluctant hero has been sucked into battle against homicidal aliens! A mysterious, metallo-organic sphere hovers above the Earth, ripping entire chunks of the planet apart and dumping civilians into harvesting machines (reminiscent of War of the Worlds). With his girlfriend's life at stake, without any friends by his side, Cherokee Tommy — the hero — must creep his way through a bunch of linear levels to put an end to the alien menace.
N3: Ninety-Nine Nights (Xbox 360)

N3: Ninety-Nine Nights review (X360)

Reviewed on July 29, 2006

Ninety-Nine Nights is grand, sweeping, and epic. Each character's attack style is varied, each storyline is different, and the secret character's adventure is a BLAST. At the best of times, the game's thoroughly engrossing and a joy to play. Unfortunately, because of numerous design issues, it can't fend off the bellowing swarms of other, better, older brawlers.
Arcus 1-2-3 (Sega CD)

Arcus 1-2-3 review (SCD)

Reviewed on July 21, 2006

Wolf Team often waxes philosophical in their games, and Arcus is no exception. This time around, they've crafted a story about the evils of war: Rig Veda doesn't like how humans indiscriminately slaughter their own kind, so he's going to kill EVERYONE. It's an unusually reflective journey that often seems more concerned with exploring the nature of humanity than with saving the world.
Arcus II: Silent Symphony (X68000)

Arcus II: Silent Symphony review (X68K)

Reviewed on July 20, 2006

Arcus II is clearly not like other RPGs. I've played some streamlined games that worked, such as Riviera, but this one is so minimal that it's pointless. By skipping cutscenes and using the "run and only kill bosses" method, it can be completed in about an hour. Yes, this is a roleplaying game that you can beat in ONE HOUR!
Castlevania Double Pack (Game Boy Advance)

Castlevania Double Pack review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 04, 2006

After playing the disappointing Castlevania Double Pack, the "Castlevania" name now brings back memories of emasculated bishounen dunderheads, forgettable filler music, long empty hallways, and tiresome backtracking. Quite frankly, this cartridge makes me sad.
Motoroader MC (Turbografx-CD)

Motoroader MC review (TGCD)

Reviewed on June 13, 2006

In the tradition of the legendary Super Sprint, each Motoroader race is presented in a single-screen birds' eye view, so that you can see all the racers, all the obstacles, and all the action without any view-changing or mirror-flipping nonsense. There are a few hazards like ice patches or volcanic gorges, but for the most part you'll just hold down the "accelerate" button and speed as quickly as possible through eight laps on each track.
RapeLay (PC)

RapeLay review (PC)

Reviewed on May 27, 2006

To some extent, RapeLay represents a substantial evolution in hentai gaming: diverse, real-time, interactive sexual intercourse. But let's be honest. In RapeLay, you rape women. Well-programmed or not, it's despicable.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Ultimate Masters: World Championship Tournament 2006 (Game Boy Advance)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Ultimate Masters: World Championship Tournament 2006 review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 19, 2006

World Championship 2006 is a great game that hints at a potentially excellent future. Unlike its drooling idiot siblings on the half-powered Yu-Gi-Oh! Double Pack, this final GBA edition combines all the card game's actual rules (including Fusion Monsters) with the thrill of purchasing and ripping open hundreds of virtual booster packs. The only things holding this particular Pak back are some audiovisual inadequacies and the sore lack of online play.
Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked (PlayStation 2)

Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 23, 2006

Despite all the silliness surrounding it, the core gameplay is both intuitive and smooth. At its heart, Sidetracked is a single-player hack-and-slash, most similar to a fully-3D Golden Axe. Like the classic old-school brawlers, levels are straightforward, there's a lot of button-mashing, and the enemies are repetitive. Fortunately, the game's always free-flowing and fast-paced. There's never any dead space... wherever you walk, enemies will follow, and those enemies must be ELIMINATED!
Yu-Gi-Oh! Double Pack (Game Boy Advance)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Double Pack review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 16, 2006

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Double Pack is a bit more engaging than the cartoon. For one thing, it's definitely more fun to play than to watch (even if the real-world rules have been drastically over-simplified). For another, even though it uses the English names (like Jonouchi Joey), the game's two stories -- adapted from the Battle City arc -- aren't as childishly censored as the cartoon. When "duelists" lose a match, they're no longer banished to a mythical Shadow Realm -- in the Double Pack, losers are chopped up by spinning buzzsaws or tied to anchors and hurled into the ocean!
Merge Marginal (Dreamcast)

Merge Marginal review (DC)

Reviewed on April 10, 2006

Marginal is unusual because the women are actually animal spirit maids. Sure, Tail Tale and Legend of Fairies featured animal spirit girls, but no developer has ever crossed that sacred line in the sand and mixed the "maid" and "animal spirit" genres. It's a daring combination that defies the bounds of traditional gal gaming. Either that or it's an excuse for the girls to squeal cute (read: annoying) NYAN! and UNYA! noises.
Ys: The Ark of Napishtim (PSP)

Ys: The Ark of Napishtim review (PSP)

Reviewed on April 01, 2006

The PSP port's issues begin and end with the frequent loading. Every time Adol moves from one screen to the next — even if he's just walking into a house — a loading screen will appear. Sometimes NOW LOADING is white. Sometimes NOW LOADING is light blue.
MS Saga: A New Dawn (PlayStation 2)

MS Saga: A New Dawn review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 12, 2006

When it comes to anime, people have different ways of expressing their love. Some cosplay, some create fansites, and some draw parodies. SD Gundam was originally intended as an all-out parody of the super-serious Gundam series. SD Gundam was so popular that it eventually took on a life of its own and spawned an entire line of toys, television shows, and video games. MS Saga is one of those games.
Telenet Music Box (X68000)

Telenet Music Box review (X68K)

Reviewed on March 06, 2006

A young boy flees from a burning village. Behind him, grim armored invaders methodically purge hut after hut, torching the walls and turning every once-happy home into a sickening slaughterhouse.
Drakengard 2 (PlayStation 2)

Drakengard 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 20, 2006

If Dynasty Warriors wrote the book on manly brawling, then Drakengard 2 filled a library. By game's end, thousands of ogres, undead soldiers, and knights will fall with blood spraying from their broken heads. However! Fans of the first game be warned: you no longer play as an insatiable madman!
GUN (Xbox 360)

GUN review (X360)

Reviewed on February 11, 2006

It's one of those "good but" games. GUN is good, but its Western atmosphere is disappointingly sedate. With yellow ground, brown buildings, and simple textures (why is this on 360?), it's not nearly as visually appealing as Death By Degrees on PS2. The characters are always genuinely likable or appropriately detestable, but they're too often treated as disposables. There's a nice end-game twist, but that end comes too quickly.
Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque (PC)

Girlish Grimoire Littlewitch Romanesque review (PC)

Reviewed on February 06, 2006

Between schoolroom lessons, you can send the girls out on life-enriching quests or "interact" with special guest tutors to earn fabulous magical prizes. Depending on how you train the girls and on which of the completely optional diplomas you choose to pursue, it's possible to achieve twenty different endings that would make even Princess Maker 2 vets jealous.
Chuck Norris Superkicks (Atari 2600)

Chuck Norris Superkicks review (A2600)

Reviewed on January 23, 2006

I think it's safe to say that Chuck Norris is truly a legend among men, and he deserves nothing but the utmost respect and reverence for being able to legitimately kick anyone's butt.
Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360)

Dead or Alive 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

Whether it's drunken master Brad immersing himself in drink, Helena discovering the truth about her mother's murder, or the "romance" between Leifang and Jann Lee coming to its conclusion, Dead or Alive 4 is the true sequel to DOA2 that Dreamcast fans have longed for and that ignorant blowhards have feared.
