3D Pinball: Space Cadet (PC)

3D Pinball: Space Cadet review (PC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2004

3D Pinball: Space Cadet is really just your typical pinball game. The main difference with this game is that it comes free with any Windows 98 or higher operating system. But with that fact, it also means that there are a few flaws with the game. Things that are free are rarely any good. Rarely.

The Amazing Maze Game (Arcade)

The Amazing Maze Game review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 09, 2004

Connoisseurs of minimalism, rejoice - your idol rests here. It is a 24x26 square with openings at each end, and two nameless, faceless, worthless icons squaring off (no pun intended) against each other in a race to the finish. The box is filled with lines representing walls which are spaced just so, allowing your geometric figure to wend its way through corridors as black as the infinite vacuum of space. What reward lies at the end of these bleak hallways? None. Does hope spring eternal for our ...

Metal Slug 2 (Arcade)

Metal Slug 2 review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 25, 2004

For a lesson in genuine gaming rapture, see Metal Slug 2 -- the follow-up to the phenomenal Metal Slug, a marriage of gruesome warfare and peculiar, cartoon-like attitude and atmosphere. It was an ideal example of competent, silly animation -- a veritable caricature of the classic 2D shooter Contra, including the reflexive bullet dodging and mass-slaughtering with the added bonus of a true sense of tender charisma. Your heart would warm as the golden boy of an infantry -- bl...

Fatal Fury 2 (X68000)

Fatal Fury 2 review (X68K)

Reviewed on October 25, 2004

Who wouldn't want to control lone wolf Terry Bogard on a quest to topple a ruthless opponent? Believe it or not, some people didn't. This time, those people had seven other options. They could play as ninja girl Mai Shiranui, spinning across the screen with her Deadly Ninja Bees attack or hurling butterfly fans.

MDK (PC)

MDK review (PC)

Reviewed on October 24, 2004

Innovation is the name of the game. Actually the name of the game is M(urder)D(eath)K(ill), but don’t be mislead by this macabre repetition – there’s plenty of death here, but probably not in the sense you’d expect. Surely, games such as Blood and Doom weren’t as lightheartedly silly as this, but unfortunately, MDK largely relies on its goofy exterior and a single innovative mechanic to set itself apart when it otherwise doesn’t deserve to be set apart. The entire experience – term used l...

Half-Life: Counter-Strike (PC)

Half-Life: Counter-Strike review (PC)

Reviewed on October 24, 2004

What happens when game modification tools are landed in the hands of a few amateurs, whose game design plan borders on sadistic and deplorable? A nearly unprecedented, sweeping proliferation of lamentably poor ideas within an entire game genre. Call me an iconoclast, but there are a number of mainstream games that don’t deserve the frothing praise they get, and Half-Life: Counter-Strike is the most egregious offender of the pack. It’s not so much its failure to be an enjoyable game that entitles...

Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun (PC)

Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun review (PC)

Reviewed on October 22, 2004

When the very first Command & Conquer game was released by developer Westwood, there was a sneak peek on the CD which showed gamers a hint of Tiberian Sun. We were drooling from there. The superb 1996 smash Command & Conuqer: Red Alert, universally considered to be among perhaps the best PC games ever made at the time, only increased the hype for this 1999 release. Famous Hollywood actors signed up to the project, early screenshots showed a lovely visual improvement and prev...

Metal Slug 3 (Arcade)

Metal Slug 3 review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 22, 2004

Metal Slug 3 marks the series' evolutionary peak in a number of areas. In terms of raw game quality, it is unmatched; not only in the series, but in the genre at large. The addictive, pulse-pounding action the series is renowned for is injected with gallons of pure ludicrous variety, resulting in a mind-blowingly unpredictable adventure. MS3 is pretty much the best side-scrolling shooter there is.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  (Arcade)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles  review (ARC)

Reviewed on October 08, 2004

Four player beat-em-ups are almost a thing of the past nowadays. Aside from Gauntlet Legends< there aren’t any of them left in my local arcade. The cabinet spaces are filled with games like Battle Gear 3 and Warzard, games that remain untouched by most players. When I walk into the arcade now I usually get filled with a feeling of nostalgia as I remember some of the four-player classics that have been unfairly snatched from us because of their age. Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles was one of these ...

Cubes Invasion (PC)

Cubes Invasion review (PC)

Reviewed on October 06, 2004

Besides the regular mode of play, there is also a treasure hunt version included in the Cubes Invasion package, which asks that you abandon normal square-clearing mentality in favour of 'freeing' only the pieces with a bag of treasure on them. When you're just starting out, you'll only need to connect one or two bags to proceed to the next stage. But by the time you reach say, stage 20, tons of bags will be crying out to be released from their coloured jails and the stage will likely start you out with the blocks already encroaching dangerously near the top of the well. The evil!

Grand Theft Auto III (PC)

Grand Theft Auto III review (PC)

Reviewed on October 06, 2004

As controversial a reputation the original Grand Theft Auto had on its release, I can’t confess to ever enjoying it. The only way to realistically collect enough money to advance to the next stage was by doing jobs for bosses, and these jobs were often far too frustrating and tedious to hold my attention for long. The sequel, Grand Theft Auto 2, heralded a colourful graphical improvement and the missions were generally more amusing, although it was far from a classic.

Asheron's Call: Dark Majesty review (PC)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

The sun fades beyond the Mountain of Lethe, as the darkness of night sweeps over the land. The ethereal wisps can be seen fluttering throughout the night sky and the twin moons gleam a powerful glow on the cities around the world. A group of travelers leave the pub and grab their swords, shields, wands, and bows, and prepare to venture into the wilderness. As the fellowship continues on, their power can be sensed by nearly every being in the area, and enemies fall before them. As the regions get...

Pachinko Sexy Reaction (Arcade)

Pachinko Sexy Reaction review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 27, 2004

Are Japanese games of chance and peeks into the dressing rooms of changing women your two greatest passions? Then it just so happens that Pachinko Sexy Reaction is an arcade game that you should invest some time in. It's about as deep as a child's wading pool, and stays in that shallow territory for the entirety of the experience. If you like cheap little table games like pachinko and pinball, here you go. If you like buxom animé women who like to conveniently "forget" that they're not un...

DoDonPachi (Arcade)

DoDonPachi review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 26, 2004

Do Don Pachi is packed with ecstasy, not the brain rotting drug but the mixed feelings of apprehension, excitement and anger. The three combined create an unknown emotion that seems to be locked inside the human system, until one plays Do Don Pachi. Once you have experienced the ride that is Do Don Pachi you will never forget it, the firing of the ships cannon, the array of tanks and planes as they surround the one solitary ship floating over the wrecked world. There is no going back, it’s ...

Guwange (Arcade)

Guwange review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 25, 2004

If you see that the company Atlus has something to do with a videogame, it’s a pretty safe bet that game will be a wee bit out of the ordinary. You might end up bribing monsters to slay the deities of your choice OR you could take control of a group of wise-cracking demons to rule the underworld. Or, instead of enlisting demons or playing the role of one, you might just decide to slaughter the lot of ‘em.

Come See Me Tonight (PC)

Come See Me Tonight review (PC)

Reviewed on September 24, 2004

Parents are supposed to be around to support their children. Not so for Ryoichi Sakaki. He returns home one day to find an empty house that’s just been put on the real estate market. Left with only a little cash and a farewell note, the high school senior faces the prospect of being hopeless and alone. However, this recipe for angst is quickly sweetened into a light romantic comedy. Though Come See Me Tonight provides solid characterization and plot, it hurts itself by withdrawing ...

SonSon (Arcade)

SonSon review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 14, 2004

SonSon is a shooter inspired by the Chinese folktale “Journey to the West”, where cult shows like “Dragonball” and “Monkey Magic” got their ideas from. Basically it followed the adventures of Gokuu, a Monkey God with an array of magical abilities who went on a pilgrimage to India to collect scriptures from Buddha. Capcom used this legend as the backbone for this game, placing Gokuu, renamed SonSon along with his fellow pilgrim Pigsy in a running shooter game that was highly stressful and very re...

Oh My God! (Arcade)

Oh My God! review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 13, 2004

You may be wondering what kind of game could be called “Oh My God!”. I never thought that they could actually make a game called “Oh My God!” but Atlus seemed to have next to no problem with it. It is an arcade game that didn’t reach western shores for reasons unknown reasons but it seemed to go well in Japan, but they don’t care what they release do they? Atlus aren’t too popular in the gaming world but they made some red hot RPGS and DoDonPachi, the greatest shooter to grace any arcade.
