Uplink: Hacker Elite (PC)

Uplink: Hacker Elite review (PC)

Reviewed on September 14, 2006

There is a brilliant idea that inspires Uplink: Hacker Elite, and it largely rests at the intersection of the state of present day technology, and the timeless intrigue that surrounds crime and criminals, so deeply-rooted that it taps human nature. There have long been games depicting crime, going all the way back to the Atari 2600, and the monumental Grand Theft Auto series is inarguably the one that has most recently brought the issue of game crime and violence into the limelight...

CivCity: Rome (PC)

CivCity: Rome review (PC)

Reviewed on September 12, 2006

With your first attempts at construction, you can only make tiny huts barely suitable for habitation. Residents demand a well, but theyíll only travel so far to reach it (apparently, crossing the entire city is just too much of a hassle and will prompt them to move to a city other than yours for the sake of eventual convenience).

Sly Spy (Arcade)

Sly Spy review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 11, 2006

There is a glee about Sly Spy, a maniacal urge to so blatantly steal and simultaneously disrespect the source material it pays cynical homage to, the wonderful 007 canon, that makes it a grotesque spectacle, somehow both irritating and intriguing at the same time. Iíve always appreciated poorly made side-scrolling action games that are in obvious replication of the James Bond saga (Iím one of six living fans of the campy and tedious Rolling Thunder), and I couldnít help but ...

Mug Smashers (Arcade)

Mug Smashers review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 08, 2006

Mug Smashers, though devastatingly threatening by name, is more of a womanly slap across the cheek than any truly bruising smash. It isnít as good as Final Fight or Streets of Rage, and certainly doesnít appear to be too worried about it. Itís bad, and surprisingly content with that.

Bone: Out from Boneville (PC)

While Bone: Out from Boneville lasts, it's an engaging and humorous experience that manages to entertain a wide spectrum of audiences.

Bone: Out from Boneville (PC)

Bone: Out from Boneville review (PC)

Reviewed on September 07, 2006

The comic's appeal was widespread, and, to a point, so is the game. The younger audience will enjoy the goofy characters, the vibrant colours and cartoony graphics whilst older players will enjoy that everything is just a little bit more complex then it seems. Behind the childish presentation lays a strong collection of characters that are a joy to interact with. From the sleepy-eyed Red Dragoon who takes a minimalistic approach to helping the cousins on their way to the triplet of playful possums that bicker for Fone's attention and take an immediate dislike to Phoney, there's an energetic world to explore. But before you can get lost in it, it's over.

Heart de Roommate (PC)

Heart de Roommate review (PC)

Reviewed on August 31, 2006

While itís true that there is nudity, thatís not so much the focus as you might anticipate. You probably expect Yusuke to sneak around peeking in bathrooms when girls are bathing, spying on shower stalls at school, and maybe raping a few females for good measure. Thatís just not the focus, though, and Heart de Roommate is better for it.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (PC)

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines review (PC)

Reviewed on August 28, 2006

When I loaded up Vampires: Bloodlines, I felt that I was going to be disappointed. Troika Games was on the verge of folding, reviews talked about the bugginess of the game, and I was afraid it was going to be a Diablo type affair like the first Vampire: Redemption. I have to say that I was wrong on all aspects and was pleseantly surprised by all that this game does right.

Half-Life (PC)

Half-Life review (PC)

Reviewed on August 28, 2006

The intro sequence is the part that endures, obviously; the commute into the creaking heart of the Black Mesa Research Facility will never quite lose its majesty. Once the soundscape oozes in and your eyes open, your tramcar winds its way down through the massive complex, sweeping you through a foreseeable world in which technology is definitely awe-inspiring, but far from reliable and farther from invasive. Incredible multi-articulated robots repair busted-up chemical vats. Steel airlocks and e...

1944: The Loop Master (Arcade)

1944: The Loop Master review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 26, 2006

For the sixth installment in the 1942 series, Capcom decided to do something different: they let another developer make the game. Now this could've been disastrous, because the game could've been something completely different in the sense that "they just didn't get it". Or, it could've just sucked. Fortunately, the complete opposite happened, because they got Eighting/Raizing, and what you end up getting is the most intense, enjoyable "19" game to date.

19XX: The War Against Destiny (Arcade)

19XX: The War Against Destiny review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

19XX: The War Against Destiny is a good shoot-em-up. It does a nice job at keeping you on your toes throughout its six stages with the amount of candy-coated bullets that gets thrown your way. However, when compared to the game it followed up, 1941, you get this overwhelming feeling that 19XX took a step backwards. After that highly enjoyable game, this title seems to pale in comparison as it doesn't actually have many significant upgrades or differences that make it stand o...

Psychonauts (PC)

Psychonauts review (PC)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

You find yourself standing on a road that twists in and around itself like a giant knot. An endless void surrounds this demented neighborhood, whose people have the composure and attire to suggest they are secret agents. Their constant uttering of phrases lacking any intellectual value leaves you wondering what kind of sick person's imagination you could be in and how you could possibly fix it. After whipping out a trusty piece of bacon, an old man's head pops out of your right ear and reminds y...

1941: Counter Attack (Arcade)

1941: Counter Attack review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 23, 2006

1941: Counter Attack had a lot to prove following up its predecessor. While 1943 Kai wasn't a GREAT game, it did do a lot for the series back when it originally came out: a better, yet, still hard gameplay experience, souped-up weapons, a decent stage count, and other nice additions. So, when I began the first stage of 1941, I wasn't that impressed. It basically started out like any other game in the series. With the P-38 at my controls (second player gets a Mosquito, I thin...

SiN Episodes: Emergence (PC)

SiN Episodes: Emergence review (PC)

Reviewed on August 22, 2006

One of the things that bugged me about Half-Life 2: Episode One, the only other current attempt at delivering a game in episodes rather than a single installment, was that the game didnít end. Let me clarify that. Half-Life 2: Episode One left a lot of questions unanswered. I felt like the developers were just teasing players with a throw-away ending, expecting you to pay for the next two installments of the series if you want real clarity. I expected some suspense. I expected to b...

1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen (Arcade)

1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 20, 2006

Ah, Capcom, you gotta love them. Once they release a game and it becomes popular, you can expect them to milk the hell out of that title by releasing "revamped" versions several months later. You've seen them do this with Resident Evil, Devil May Cry 3, and of course, you remember what everyone went through with Street Fighter II. But even before that little known title, Capcom's been doing it to older games. In this case, 1943: The Battle of Midway. A year after tha...

1943: The Battle of Midway (Arcade)

1943: The Battle of Midway review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

1942 sucked. A lot. Piloting a P-38 through thirty-two stages of the same exact crap is not my idea of a good time. So, I wasn't really going into 1943: The Battle of Midway with high hopes. I read that it has quite a few upgrades that make it better than its predecessor, so I was willing to give the game a shot.

Civilization IV: Warlords (PC)

Civilization IV: Warlords review (PC)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

When you get a warlord, you then get to decide which available unit youíd like to associate him with. So, letís say you have a few groups of chariot-riding fiends. He can join them and their power will be boosted accordingly. But theyíre hardly invincible, or else the game would be too imbalanced. No, theyíre just the slightest bit stronger.

1942 (Arcade)

1942 review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

I've played 1942 a couple of times before, and each of those times, I didn't really get into the game. With a grand total of thirty-two stages, I just didn't have the time. But I was willing to give the game another shot when I decided to do a review for it. I made sure I had plenty of time to waste, so I can attempt to make it through the entire title.

Whenever I get the urge to write a bunch of reviews, I always want write a review for Project Snowblind, but for some reason, I haven't been able to. Even though it has been over a year since I first played through Project Snowblind, Iíve never been able to put my thoughts onto the paper. Usually, when I really like a game, like I did Project Snowblind, itís very easy for me to write my review. But, this game has me stumped. As much as I loved it, writing down what I love an...
