Black Heart (Import) (Arcade)

Black Heart (Import) review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 06, 2004

It starts out so innocently. An evil wizard kidnapping a damsel. A brave knight to the rescue, determined to save the day. Leaping onto the sturdy back of his dragon mount, the chivalrous warrior departs to face whatever dangers come his way.

Street Fighter (Arcade)

Street Fighter review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 05, 2004

Capcom's “Street Fighter” series was the progenitor of fighting games and today it is still respected in the hearts of beat-em-up fans and general gamers alike. When you think of Street Fighter I guarantee you will immediately think of Street Fighter 2 Championship edition, possibly the most famous fighting game in history. The original Street Fighter however remains almost forgotten now probably due to the reason it mainly lay in the arcades of the late eighties and was knocked aside for the go...

Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder (Arcade)

Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 04, 2004

People who have played through Golden Axe 2 on the Genesis were probably pretty happy to find that it followed reasonably close to the original. It wasn’t as fun as the last game but it was fun enough to sit and play through with a friend once or twice before it died on you. The truth is though most knowledgeable fans had a craving for the arcade only Golden Axe 2:The revenge of Death Adder which didn’t make it into the homes of anyone and was left to be forgotten about in arcades and leisure ce...

Tsuki ~Possession~ (PC)

Tsuki ~Possession~ review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2004

The artwork is amateurish, the music is forgettable, and the plot is stupid. The game is filled with misogyny, degradation, cruelty, humiliation, and outright gruesomeness.

R-Type (Arcade)

R-Type review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 30, 2004

Back in the days of my youth, my parents bought me a Rubik’s Cube. Even though the objective was simple (make all the squares on each side the same color), that confounded cube still proved capable of captivating me. I spent hours, days and even weeks staring at it and manipulating it in an attempt to “solve” what appeared to be an impossible puzzle before finally losing interest in it and casting it into my “Box of Abandoned Toys” (likely with each side still an amalgam of different colors). I ...

Mortal Kombat 3 (Arcade)

Mortal Kombat 3 review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 29, 2004

It’d be a bit of an exaggeration to call today’s games bloodthirsty. They’re certainly more than an interactive satisfying of our subconscious, violent fantasies. Still, the prominence of juicy details and the emergence of game engines emulating the body’s reaction to physical abuse of all variations is becoming more the necessary silverware on the table, whereas we at one time gawked at it like the fine cuisine being served. Had it always been this way, Mortal Kombat would’ve been an ...

Betrayal at Krondor (PC)

Betrayal at Krondor review (PC)

Reviewed on June 25, 2004

One of the worst things one can say about console RPGs in general is that they are not games, but ''interactive novels''. It seems to be a law of the universe that this argument must pop up in ever console vs. PC debate. The PC side will most likely then turn around and point at the endless customization and choices that every player of computer RPGs must face, then haughtily dismiss their cousins on the console as pathetic imitations of the real thing. Perhaps I generalize, but undoubtedly PC R...

Altered Beast (Arcade)

Altered Beast review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

As I pick through the mind of retro gamers and those who dig “old school” I have never found a fan of Altered Beast. “Boy! That game stinks!” is usually the response I get and when I defend it I get something like “What the **** are you on?” It seems, now the mist has well cleared and the cobwebs have now settled on this archaic action classic and most people are now ready to forget it, despite Sega’s attempts to re-launch it on more up to date systems.

Mega Man: The Power Battle (Arcade)

Mega Man: The Power Battle review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

Mega Man: The Power Battle was a fighting game in the arcades featuring the Blue Bomber, his friends and the cast of unforgettable “men” from his various other hits on the NES and SNES. It contained a selection of bosses from the series and threw you in numerous confrontations against these with the ability to play as Mega Man, his bro, Protoman and their rival/ally Forte, whom I had never heard of until I played this game as to be honest I ain’t a huge Mega Man fan.

X-Change (PC)

X-Change review (PC)

Reviewed on June 21, 2004

If in earlier days, or perhaps even now, you were like most young men -- and all you ladies out there, I’m guessing you weren’t -- you probably at some point wished yourself a girl. That’s right -- a frilly dress-wearing, tea party-hosting, Nancy Drew-reading girl. Well I’m here to disillusion you and hopefully break you of those twisted desires, because if X-Change is any indicator -- and knowing the reputed mystical insights possessed by your average Japanese game designer, it probably ...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on June 20, 2004

In that familiar galaxy far, far away, some 4000 years before the long-ago events of the two Star Wars film trilogies, the Republic is threatened by a Sith army led by Darth Malak. Its fate lies with the sultry yet sour-mouthed Jedi Bastilla, who possesses a potent ability called Battle Meditation that allowed her to kill Malak’s former master Revan. She’s not doing so well as the game opens, though, as a Sith armada destroys her vessel and forces her to hide out on Taris, a decaying urban world...

The Queen of Heart '98 (PC)

The Queen of Heart '98 review (PC)

Reviewed on June 19, 2004

Watanabe Seisakujo is an interesting Japanese company. Obviously an impassioned collection of individuals, they seek to pay tribute to games that they admire. Apparently, some of those games are of an adult nature, as the group tends to borrow their favorite female characters to use in their own games… their own fighting games. Watanabe Seisakujo aren’t alone in their desire to see cute girls beat each other senseless, though, as all their creations have achieved at least cult-level recogniti...

What is DoDonPachi? If you answered ''a shooter,'' you are wrong. Go home, go directly home, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

Serious Sam:  The First Encounter (PC)

Serious Sam: The First Encounter review (PC)

Reviewed on June 14, 2004

I can honestly say that only a few things have ever actually hurt my brain. One thing that I remember as a brain-hurter was when my friend Chris and I took apart this really old TV and broke a tube inside it that was labeled as dangerous. Suffice to say, I have worn glasses ever since. Another thing that made my brain hurt was Chemistry. Never knew what was going on in there, but after an hour and a half of learning it, my brain felt like it got sucker-punched by Muhammad Ali. The only thing els...

Autobahn (Apple II)

Autobahn review (APP2)

Reviewed on June 14, 2004

The goal is to drive down the Autobahn, that famous French freeway with no speed limit and people who like to drive as fast as their cars will move. Other than yourself, though, there aren’t a lot of people who have the sort of engine to take advantage of the environment. So you take it upon yourself to weave through traffic like a soccer mom on the way to the game in her husband’s SUV. Aside from a few minor details, I’ve just described the whole game.

Sentimental Shooting (PC)

Sentimental Shooting review (PC)

Reviewed on June 14, 2004

Your concentration wavers as her smile catches your eye. What was supposed to be a quick glance turns into a second-long stare as you survey her girlish face and fine figure. Try to forget her vulnerable position, that in a few more seconds her shirt will explode and only her lingerie will remain. The vibrant music only further detaches you from the battle, obscuring the sound of enemy fire. You only hear a dull explosion, switching your focus only to see your ship disintegrate and the words ''G...

Ceiling Zero (Apple II)

Ceiling Zero review (APP2)

Reviewed on June 01, 2004

As I became slowly disenchanted with Space Invaders, I looked to the Apple for new variants. I just wanted to shoot things up, which was good, because many early Apple games offered nothing more. Ceiling Zero(CZ) had lots of shooting and, worse yet, a flowerpot-shaped boss ship that went FWEEE to start things off. I suppose there was no shortage of shooters that trapped you unfairly with random incidents, but when I was young, that didn't bother me. I wasn’t good enough for that to be a factor.

Bug Attack (Apple II)

Bug Attack review (APP2)

Reviewed on May 30, 2004

Most everyone is out to get him. The few that aren’t spend their time cowering in the face of insect-shaped aliens that have made the realm their own. These fearsome foes come in one of three shapes: ants, caterpillars and butterflies. Each of them are capable of dropping knives the size of their own bodies, and the screen is often filled with waves of metal weapons you must dodge while you return pathetic pellets of your own.

I'm Gonna Serve You 4 (PC)

I'm Gonna Serve You 4 review (PC)

Reviewed on May 30, 2004

Among fans of English bishoujo titles, Trabulance is a company known for producing less-than-serious fare. Stick some cute girls in cute uniforms, throw them in a novel environment, and let the sexual comedy ensue. At first, or even second, glance, Tsukushite Agechau 4 looks exactly the same. This impression is certainly supported by the opening theme, a cheerful J-pop tune playing over a movie that immediately focuses on the girls’ obvious physical endowments. It leads the player t...
