The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on November 30, 2007

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 (Xbox 360)

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...

Geometry Wars: Galaxies review (WII)

Reviewed on November 27, 2007

This is it. Hordes of enemies are closing in on you from every direction. You canít get out of here alive. Donít look so sad; youíve fought well. Your exploits will be forever immortalized on the Leaderboard. How many times have you cheated death in these past few minutes? How many of the enemy forces have you slaughtered for your nameless cause? The only death toll youíll ever know is the high score ranking at the corner of the screen. Itís not like that matters now, anyway. You canít keep this...

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 (DS)

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...

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 26, 2007

WWE is laying the smackdown again, but not just on a few home consoles, but on every modern console. This is the first go around for a Smackdown game on the PS3, so fans will definitely be expecting better graphics and realism and Yukes delivers.

MVP 07 NCAA Baseball (PlayStation 2)

MVP 07 NCAA Baseball review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 25, 2007

MVP 06ís greatest sin was one of omission. In 2006, 285 teams populated the ranks of Division I baseball, yet only 128 squads from the most high profile conferences found their way into the inaugural NCAA Baseball release. And many of the slighted schools deserved representation; 31 of them earned a berth in that postseasonís field of 64. While an industrious player could recreate the target of his fanaticism, there was no way to accurately model uniforms, logos, or mascots. To...

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 25, 2007

Well, another year brings another game in the SmackDown! vs RAW series -- and this time it's going hardcore by featuring ECW. Like they always do, THQ has polished up the graphics and made everything look a bit better than they did before. Unfortunately, they also made good on their other yearly tradition: taking a step backwards for every step forward they make. While there are many new additions this year, there are things that were good about previous SmackDown! titles have been removed. Than...

3D Pinball: Space Cadet (PC)

3D Pinball: Space Cadet review (PC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2007

Although eclipsed in popularity by titles such as Solitaire and Minesweeper, 3D Pinball: Space Cadet is by far the most impressive game to come free with your Windows operating system. Itís a surprisingly thorough pinball simulation, for something that was probably designed to be an easy distraction, and its depth far surpasses anything that those silly playing card or IED-hunting games have to offer. Compared to a real pinball table, there shouldnít be too many complaints as to its sho...

7 Days a Skeptic review (PC)

Reviewed on November 22, 2007

7 Days a Skeptic is a Jason X tribute. That's one genre for which life is simply too short. It was produced by Ben Croshaw, maestro of the AGS adventure game-creation program, and as such boasts many admirable technical achievements. They just don't come packaged in a very enjoyable game.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations review (DS)

Reviewed on November 22, 2007

The Phoenix Wright formula is an effective one. Take one part point & click adventure, two parts courtroom drama and three parts ongoing story about a defense attorney in a world gone stir crazy, and you have a heavily text based but very enjoyable game. And that's a good thing, because Trials and Tribulations is more of exactly the same we've already seen for the past two games. In fact it's tempting to say that if you liked what came before, you can just stop reading and go and play - and if y...

Assassin's Creed review (X360)

Reviewed on November 21, 2007

Gamers everywhere have been anxiously awaiting the release of Assassinís Creed ever since itís original announcement. I have to admit, after watching trailers and videos of Creedís gameplay, I was more than impressed and I had a feeling that the experience would be totally mind-blowing. Sadly, Assassinís Creed isnít that pinnacle of gaming that most people thought it would be, but itís still better than most games, which means you should definitely give it a look.
