Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon (Game Boy Advance)

Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 05, 2007

Shining Force - Resurrection of the Dark Dragon, a remake of the 1993 Sega Genesis title Shining Force, is a tactical RPG in which you lead a group of adventurers against the armies of an evil neighboring country. But this is far more than just a port with updated graphics; Shining Force has been redone from scratch, and a fine balance has been struck between preserving the classic game and updating it to stand up to the many other tactical RPGs on the GBA. As such, the end product is likely to ...

Mighty Beanz: Pocket Puzzles review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 05, 2007

Life, why must you always throw new challenges in our path? Why do you force us to spend our time on activities that we do not enjoy and that do not get us anywhere? Why, indeed, are we driven to inflicting mental agony on ourselves, to warp our brain and numb our mind, aware of it every painful step, yet unable to resist? Why must we let ourselves be knocked down, trodden upon, only to scramble back up and ask for more? Why, dear God, why am I playing this atrocity of a puzzle game called Might...

Namco Museum (Game Boy Advance)

Namco Museum review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 05, 2007

To the modern day gamer, a title like Namco Museum has little to offer, but to an old schooler it represents pure gold. It consists of five classic arcade titles, and a fairly varied selection at that, and brings a lot of classic goodness to the GBA. I judge it unlikely that anybody who did not grow up with these and similar games will find them much fun, but if the titles Ms. Pacman, Dig Dug, Pole Position, Galaxian and Galaga mean anything to you, here's your chance to replay these arcade clas...

Mega Man ZX Advent (DS)

Mega Man ZX Advent review (DS)

Reviewed on December 03, 2007

Most people stopped liking Megaman at X3. There was X4, which was painfully mediocre. X5 - X9, all of which were horrid abortions of games. There was the Megaman Zero series on the Gameboy Advance, all of which were either unplayably difficult or the same boss fight rehashed a billion times. There was Command Mission, which was mediocre at best. There was the Battle Network series, of which the first one was decent (if repetitive) and the rest were rehashed. There were Legends and Legends 2, whi...

Mass Effect (Xbox 360)

Mass Effect review (X360)

Reviewed on December 03, 2007

Man has always wondered whether there is intelligent life beyond the sea of stars in the sky. In BioWareís latest blockbuster, Mass Effect, mankind is late to the intergalactic party. Alien races have established a council that encompasses the best part of the Milky Way, and humanity is the new kid on the block. After discovering ancient technology on planet Mars, humans got a jump start that allowed them to travel time and space. The majority of the alien races are sceptical and envious of maní...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved (PC)

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved review (PC)

Reviewed on December 02, 2007

There are not many who lament the loss of the arcade space-shooter. With the great advances in visual technology over the years, it seems a strange choice for a developer to step back a couple of decades and hearken back to a simpler time. But that is exactly the premise behind Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, as the popular Xbox Live Arcade game makes the transition to the PC.

Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors II (NES)

Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors II review (NES)

Reviewed on December 01, 2007

The first thing you should know is that everything on the box of Ironsword: Wizards & Warriors 2 is an utter lie. Judging from the cover, most people would be expecting to play as a manly hero with a big sword and washboard abs that make shirtlessness a viable option. Let me warn you now; such a character does not exist anywhere within the confines of this cartridge. For those who enjoy making impulsive purchasing decisions, this may be a discovery that would infuriate the most ...

My professional obligations completed, I forgot about Hourglass. It's easily done because, as I alluded to earlier, it's crap. But now, bollocks to it, I'm going to tell you why.

Twinkle Tale (Genesis)

Twinkle Tale review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

As I was making my way through Twinkle Tale, I was wondering why I play shooters. After all they arenít the most appealing games. They are extremely basic, often very frustrating and repetitive (especially after spending hours on a single part), and nowhere near as technically advanced as the games that people play today. Yet we still play them. And in many ways they are more rewarding and ultimately more entertaining than anything else on the market, regardless of its graphics, re...

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening review (GB)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

I always thought that nerds on the Internet who wine ďitís all about the gameplay!Ē when their favorite game gets ripped on for some stupid gimmick or whatever were idiots. Obviously gameplay is the most important aspect of any game, but I would be damned if graphics, sound, replay value, etc donít matter at all.

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land review (GB)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

Besides not having color, one of the main reasons why I didnít care for the Game Boy was because of its games. It had some solid titles, such as Bionic Commando, Castlevania, and Kirbyís Dream Land, but they were all watered-down ports of NES games. In the end most of the crap that came out for the Game Boy either sucked or was a port. This wasnít the case with every game though. Two of the Game Boyís few unique games were the well-known puzzler Tetris, and Super Mario Land, Marioís first...

Project Gotham Racing 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

Although Project Gotham Racing is one of my favorite Xbox games, I know that thereís plenty of room for improvement. After two years of solid playing Iíve accumulated more than five hundred thousand total kudos, earned gold medals on the hardest races, and unlocked everything that the game has to offer. But with that being said Iím also aware that it isnít for everyone. To accomplish this goal I had to go through several hours of frustration that wouldíve caused most gamers to quit. In the matte...

Unreal Tournament 2004 (PC)

Unreal Tournament 2004 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 28, 2007

As much as I love multiplayer first person shooters, the general idea of the genre is getting quite redundant. You pick up a gun, hunt down enemies until youíre dead, respawn, and repeat the process. Maybe youíll even grab a flag or diffuse a bomb in the middle of it all. There are some other variations, but you are always performing the same actions over and over again. Itís sort of like running a route in American Football, except youíre usually running the same one with only slight variations...

Kane & Lynch: Dead Men review (X360)

Reviewed on November 27, 2007

It all went along according to plan: me and five or six other players charged a restaurant with the intent of getting a briefcase filled with money that a senator is holding onto. Of course, it wasn't gonna be easy, as displayed by the number of bullets that flew our way when we got closer to the shop. Guards outside did their best to keep us out of the building, but we pushed on, with our guns and with our grenades. Seconds later, with dead bodies littered everywhere, both guards and unfortunat...

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 review (DS)

Reviewed on November 26, 2007

WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2008 delivers the first DS wrestling game ever and the first 3D wrestling game for a Nintendo handheld. Unfortunately, the action is truly limited to a 2D form. Instead of controlling wrestlers with a control layout similar to Smackdown 2: Know Your Role, you perform moves by tapping buttons on the touch screen. For example, you can tap a quick attack icon or a powerful attack icon, then swipe or spin your stylus in the direction requested. Itís rather fun, but doesnít a...
