Sam & Max 203: Night of the Raving Dead (PC)

Sam & Max 203: Night of the Raving Dead review (PC)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

Night of the Raving Dead brings all the good things the series has been steadily building upon and then some. It improves upon the lacklustre length of Moai Better Blues, keeps the quality of the script high, and, while the puzzles are still on the easy side, they’re still a step above those seen in the first season.

Dream Day: First Home (PC)

Dream Day: First Home review (PC)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

Dream Day: First Home is actually quite simple in design. The bulk of the game plays like someone ripped a page out of an old issue of “Highlights for Children” magazine and made it interactive. Stages provide a series of pictures—lovingly rendered scenes taken from a 'first home' and local supply shops so that they fit the overall theme—and from there you have to find items from a list before the timer expires.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2008

When it comes to purchasing football games these days, you’re limited to a choice between this or EA’s FIFA series. With both series settling into next-gen, PES 2008 is truly revealing Konami’s complacency towards their product and a failure to deal with matters that are a constant thorn: laggy online play, shoddy presentation and limited options, but instead make more subtle changes to the gameplay. On plus points licenses are gradually improving, plus the introduction of a new team of commenta...

Thunder Fox (Arcade)

Thunder Fox review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 02, 2008

In the far off future, somewhere in the 1990s, terrorists have taken over the world, terrorizing people and doing other type of terrorist activities. Like saying "GRRR!" and such. They have conquered the land, denying us our freedom of going to Burger Kings, secured the sea, ensuring that we'll never find the city of Atlantis, and have taken the sky hostage, making certain that no more bird droppings hit us. But fret not, freedom lovers! Two brave men, from the awesomely titled ANTI TERRORISM TE...

It even makes time to take sly shots at other games such as Portal’s teleport system, Duke Nukem’s inability to release a damn game on time and Metal Gear Solid’s over-dramatic death-scream. You know the one!

BattleToads review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 27, 2008

Despite also being the last, the arcade version of BattleToads is definitely the best entry in the series, and in a total coincidence marks a radical departure from all the other games.

Pirates of the Burning Sea (PC)

Pirates of the Burning Sea review (PC)

Reviewed on January 26, 2008

One of the biggest problems with MMOs is repetition, not specifically the grind of gaining levels or earning money. Actually, one of the most abrasive elements of repetition is addressed in the little snippet above. With all the World of Warcrafts and Everquests and Lineages and the legions of similar games who only mix up the gameplay slightly, it's nice to see a game where with only one screenshot, you can see a big difference. Nowhere will you see dwarves with huge glowing axes, or spell casters, or half naked elf women dancing for money in town square.

Neptune's Daughters (Commodore 64)

Neptune's Daughters review (C64)

Reviewed on January 25, 2008

Sometimes, when I replay old Commodore 64 classics, I realize that some games are challenging for all the wrong reasons. Instead of simply requiring quick reactions, strategic thinking or simply concentration and nerves of steel, games from my youth have turn out to have been as difficult as they were because of sloppy controls. As I replayed Neptune's Daughters today, I was sorry to notice that this is one of those games where the challenge is not so much a design feature as a design flaw.

Medal of Honor: Airborne (PC)

Medal of Honor: Airborne review (PC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2008

To say that Medal of Honor: Airborne is the best game in the storied Medal of Honor franchise is an understatement. Airborne just may be one of the most compelling and entertaining World War II shooters ever coded. It has taken a long time, but it seems that the developers of this franchise have finally found the means to deliver the game that they've always wanted to create - a truly cinematic World War II game that is less about realism and focused on irrational heroism.

Discipline: The Record of a Crusade (PC)

Discipline: The Record of a Crusade review (PC)

Reviewed on January 14, 2008

Long ago, some forgotten professional reviewer bemoaned the notion of a restrained hentai game. H-games should be outrageously grotesque and push the limits of good taste, he opined. Cum should fly freely across the screen. Orgies should abound. Discipline: The Record of a Crusade works towards that ideal by presenting stunning levels of repellent perversion. Where else can you watch a young lady savor a steaming bowl of rice topped with globs of semen?

Montezuma's Revenge (Commodore 64)

Montezuma's Revenge review (C64)

Reviewed on January 13, 2008

Back in the good old Commodore days of gaming, when a game took half an hour to be loaded from tape and 'shockingly realistic animations' meant some sprites went through two frames, graphics meant very little to us. I'd say they meant nothing, but that's not entirely true: we did want them functional. Colours were there to help distinguish what happened on the screen, not to make your jaw drop. As long as we could tell what was going on, we didn't really care about any eye candy. We preferred to...

Everquest II: Rise of Kunark review (PC)

Reviewed on January 12, 2008

Even when you leave the lush vegetation of Timorous Deep it becomes clear that the aspect of soloing is especially strong within the Everquest II universe, meaning you don’t need to scourge for a party before you try to take on even the simplest task. It’s an option that a lot more MMOs could do with including.

Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra (PC)

Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

Some RPGs strive to hold you by the hand from the first meetings with townspeople (''Do not forget to EQUIP your weapons and armor after buying them!'') to your final victory over the master villain (or in RPG slang, ''end boss''). In either subtle or distinct ways, the player is led from one town to another, one boss after the next, a bunch of quests in a set, clear order and if you're lucky, a couple of optional ones on the side. Then there's Might & Magic 3 which does quite the opposite. In a...

Jagged Alliance 2 (PC)

Jagged Alliance 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

The island nation of Arulco is, without a doubt, in the biggest mess it has ever been in. A mad and ruthless queen has seized control of the country and its mines, and money is her only concern. The population has been reduced to poverty, a well-funded, oversized army keeps them in check, and as the queen grows richer and richer, the once glorious country is in shambles. A rebel force exists, but lacks the weapons and the manpower to make a difference. But that's where you come in. Armed with a ...

Claw (PC)

Claw review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

Speaking of challenge, there is plenty of that in Claw, but there is also a very well balanced learning curve. The first levels aren't all that hard to complete, and even somebody who has never played a platform game before will get through them with only a little practice. The difficulty steadily increases, though, and by the time you are halfway the game, every new level seems impossible at first.
