Deus Ex (PC)

Deus Ex review (PC)

Reviewed on January 08, 2005

Is Deus Ex set in the real world, or a fictional one?

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition (PC)

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition review (PC)

Reviewed on December 17, 2004

I could laboriously detail its six available gameplay modes, I could mention the staggering number of eight difficulty levels, and I could highlight its lasting appeal by mentioning the countless number of user-made modifications available for download – but no such exclamations can truly convey Unreal Tournament’s powerful essence. It’s the essence that can be vaguely understood only by recognizing the masterful design Unreal Tournament effortlessly exudes and the constant effort it demands fro...

Out of this World (PC)

Out of this World review (PC)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

Arbitrary catch-all labels they may be, but style and substance are useful terms. I'd like to submit a theory regarding these famously independent elements of game design: style and substance are not only separate, but opposing. I submit that slavish devotion to sumptuous visuals and high atmosphere can result in a game with a sensory bite that sullies your experience while it enriches it.

Moon Buggy (Commodore 64)

Moon Buggy review (C64)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

One of the golden rules of game development is that if a game is successful, rip-offs inevitably follow. Sometimes it's just a few good elements that are taken to be incorporated in a different game, and sometimes an attempt is made to reinvent the same game completely; and it's this latter category that usually goes wrong. Moon Buggy is a prime example of a game that tries to emulate a successful predecessor - Moon Patrol, in this case - and falls short by a mile.

Barbie Horse Adventures: Mystery Ride (PC)

Barbie Horse Adventures: Mystery Ride review (PC)

Reviewed on December 13, 2004

The title Barbie’s Horse Adventures could fit way more than a video game. They could turn it into the title for a movie, or perhaps a series of books. Maybe Mattel could make it into a set of dolls for all the little kids. Alternately, a guy named Steve could use the name for a pay-for-porn site and charge people to watch hot blondes get it on with our equestrian friends. Oh the possibilities. However, a Google search only shows Barbie’s Horse Adventures as a game, so as of press t...

Quasar (Commodore 64)

Quasar review (C64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2004

The only thing that made Quasar noteworthy on my collection of C64 floppies was that it was the only game I had that started with a Q. When you are six years old, that fascinates you. Q is a mysterious letter. You have no clue how to pronounce the name. It logically follows that it's got to be a cool game. Perhaps the designers of Quasar used the same reasoning. Slap on a nice sounding name, rip off a Commodore game that *did* work out - in this case, Buck Rogers - and success is assured, no? No...

Moon Patrol (Commodore 64)

Moon Patrol review (C64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2004

In an age where the appeal of a game is largely determined by how long it takes to play it through, going back to a title where you're happy to live through the first five minutes can be very refreshing. Arcade classic Moon Patrol spawned a Commodore 64 port in 1983, and it's one of those deliciously simple and yet brutally difficult games that the Commodore saw a lot of that year. As the name implies, you are patrolling the moon in a weird blue vehicle with square wheels. As the screen relentle...

Jewel Knights: Crusaders (PC)

Jewel Knights: Crusaders review (PC)

Reviewed on November 29, 2004

If Jewel Knights - Crusaders serves as any indication, the Japanese company responsible for its creation utilizes what one would believe to be a common marketing strategy, making their products synonymous with their name. This particular title is advertised as pure farce; a parody that pokes fun at sentai-battle shows like Sailor Moon or the infamous Power Rangers. Certainly, it succeeds in pointing out the most ridiculous aspects of the genre. However, these forced moments of levity...

Final Fight (X68000)

Final Fight review (X68K)

Reviewed on November 26, 2004

From the wrong side of the tracks to mob boss Belger's luxurious penthouse, you'll bust punk heads with your fists and slice baddie bodies with powerful katanas. There's always a reason, and your reason is simple: the evil Mad Gear gang has kidnapped lovely Jessica! It's an overused plot device, but that's okay because cracking skulls would be fun even if there weren't any reason at all.

The Punisher review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

Don't talk to Frank Castle about anger issues. He's a walking one. But then, you would be too if you and your family witnessed a botched mob hit and the hitmen killed your entire family to prevent being ratted out.

Ninja Baseball Bat Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

You know you’re playing a beat-‘em-up if your brutish, hulking warrior, hellbent on vengeance, finds his only respite from his henchmen-bloodying efforts in the form of consuming a hamburger he found in a dumpster.

The Curse of Monkey Island (PC)

The Curse of Monkey Island review (PC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

Ah, the point-and-click adventure! As primitive as they may seem in the days of analogue control and full-3D environments, there’s no denying the enjoyment of a nice, slow-paced, puzzle-driven adventure. The Monkey Island series has to be my favourite point-and-click adventure series. Despite the taxing puzzles, you’ll rarely not be smiling as the games pour on their razor-sharp wit and humour at almost every possible interval. Fans of the series will be happy to know that, despite the huge grap...

Super Street Fighter II Turbo (Arcade)

Super Street Fighter II Turbo review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 17, 2004

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo was the finale in the SF2 series. It took all eight world warriors from the original yet now decrepit classic, and added in the four playable boss characters in the upgraded to perfection Championship edition. With a turbo feature added on they created Street Fighter 2 turbo, a slicker and speedier version of Championship edition that also allowed all characters to be played. They kept squeezing the orange until they created enough juice that produced the ultimate S...

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 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...
