No One Lives Forever (PC)

No One Lives Forever review (PC)

Reviewed on November 04, 2007

Austin Powers might have been responsible for some good things, such as No One Lives Forever, a unique FPS that took the kitschy 60s aesthetic and blue humor and went for broke. After the dippy opening credits, complete with psychedelic light show and vocal theme music, we see heroine Cate Archer negotiating the hallways of UNITY HQ in a sinfully short bright orange miniskirt. She's out of her element before she even arrives in the office of Mr. Smith for her daily tongue-lashing. ...

Half-Life (PC)

Half-Life review (PC)

Reviewed on November 04, 2007

“….Medic!” screams the marine as I plow lead into his back. He retreats around the corner, probably hoping to enlist the help of his comrades. I do not follow; following could be suicide.

Cheetahmen II (NES)

Cheetahmen II review (NES)

Reviewed on November 04, 2007

Somewhere in the U.S. in 1992, a team worked on this game. They got together and brain stormed to come up with a story and some gameplay elements, and then they programmed it. They were working for money to feed themselves, their families, and to pay rents and mortgages, like any other American. Many things are forgivable when they are humanized, especially things that don’t ultimately decide your fate, like a videogame for example. One can imagine the time constraints, the difficult editing...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Xbox 360)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review (X360)

Reviewed on November 02, 2007

Starting out in a burning apartment complex, you, as one of the four turtles, will fight your way through to April's apartment. The fire won't be the only thing in your way, as Foot Soldiers will walk out of doors, jump out of elevator shafts, and pop out of corners to throw dynamite, filling up the hallways. There's even a bizarre moment when giant boulders come flying down some stairs. You're swinging away, knocking down Foot Soldier after Foot Soldier with your weapons, and watch as they expl...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

What would the world be like without lawyers? An inhospitable wasteland full of creeps? Or an amicable society free of backstabbing SOBs? Either way, everyone knows that you can't live them, nor can you live without them.

Bleach: The Blade of Fate (DS)

Bleach: The Blade of Fate review (DS)

Reviewed on November 01, 2007

Handhelds have never been home to the latest and greatest fighting games, though a few gems have graced them over the years. The genre is perfect for small bursts of gaming, making it a seemingly logical choice for portable systems, but I can’t remember a single handheld fighter I’d rather play over its console counterpart (as almost all of them are ports.) This is usually due to poor or simplified controls stunting the experience and/or the inability to play against friends. I suppose it’s a...

Dementium: The Ward (DS)

Dementium: The Ward review (DS)

Reviewed on October 30, 2007

Dementium. It may not be a real word, but it doesn’t take a genius to realise that it’s a derivative of both “dementia” and “demented”; two words that describe a state of intellectual deterioration and the characteristics of manic behaviour, respectively. Can you feel the darkness already? You awake one night to find yourself holed up in a decrepit room, part of some hospital ward which you don’t remember being admitted into. It’s thundery outside. You can hear the roof tiles ...

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles (PSP)

Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles review (PSP)

Reviewed on October 28, 2007

Classic game compilations are an oddity. You plunk down cash for them while fondly remembering the “glory days” in which the included games were made, and often realize after ten minutes of play that your favorite games of yesteryear were garbage. Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles is an exception. Composed of a 3D remake of the formerly Japan-only Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, the original PC-Engine version of Rondo of Blood, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Fire Emblem review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 28, 2007

Back on Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GameCube two characters caused a large uproar in the video game community. Those two characters were from a popular series in Japan known as Fire Emblem. Fans wanted to know more about the two men Marth and Roy: Where did they come from? What is Fire Emblem? Why was it not released outside of Japan? Nintendo heard the cry and answered. The next Fire Emblem game and all to follow since its debut made their way outs...

Totemball (Xbox 360)

Totemball review (X360)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The release of the Xbox Live Vision camera has opened up an avenue of opportunity for the Xbox 360. Games have taken advantage of the Vision by using face-in-game technology and allowing you to see real-time video streams of your opponents during gameplay. However, TotemBall, the first game that uses the camera exclusively to dictate gameplay, is a terrible showcase of what the Vision can do.

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The original Guitar Hero’s release in 2005 achieved mass commercial and critical success, almost single-handedly reviving the rhythm game genre. Although the companies behind the phenomenon, Harmonix and RedOctane, have now parted company, their last collaboration is now with us. Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s is a collection of thirty tracks from the decade; the song list is a bit hit-and-miss, but the real disappointment is the lack of value and lazy presentation.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All review (DS)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

Although the Phoenix Wright series has been established in Japan for a good number of years as Gyakuten Saiban, it’s still relatively new to the Western world. 2005’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was a hit in the US and Europe; the twisting murder plots and courtroom drama translated well from East to West. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All is very similar to its predecessor. The plotlines are well thought out and the characters well scripted, but it suffers severely from its short ...

Virtua Tennis 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

Since the turn of the millennium the Virtua Tennis series has dominated the tennis scene. The past few years may have been a little quiet but Virtua Tennis is back with a bang on the Xbox 360. The game hasn’t changed a great deal since Virtua Tennis 2, but Sega has improved and refined the visual presentation by taking advantage of the Xbox 360’s capabilities.

Super Paper Mario (Wii)

Super Paper Mario review (WII)

Reviewed on October 27, 2007

The latest instalment of the Paper Mario franchise captures a beauty similar to the paper-folding art of origami; a mixture of vibrant colours, abstract design, and mind-boggling use of 2D and 3D contributes to this, but don’t think Super Paper Mario is a one-trick pony. The side-scrolling action of the classic Mario games, combined with light RPG elements of the Paper Mario sub-franchise, complement each other marvellously.

Final Fantasy III review (DS)

Reviewed on October 26, 2007

Back on the Super Nintendo a wonderful game was released entitled Final Fantasy III, eventually we all learned that this in fact was not the real Final Fantasy III. They had taken what in Japan was Final Fantasy VI and made it into Final Fantasy III for the North American market, completely skipping over the original 8 bit wonder. Finally, after a long wait of over ten years us English speaking folk get the chance to play Final Fantasy III, legally. It i...

SEGA Rally Revo (Xbox 360)

SEGA Rally Revo review (X360)

Reviewed on October 26, 2007

The first time I played Revo, it sucked. The controls were really sensitive, and the car just seemed to swing around all over the place whenever I would move just a little bit. I struggled for the entire race, and had to literally fight to make it towards the head of the pack. Amazingly, I managed to snag the first or second place position when reaching the finish line, but even then, I was still unsure about the game. I thought maybe it was just me experiencing the title for the first ti...

Overlord (Xbox 360)

Overlord review (X360)

Reviewed on October 25, 2007

Have you ever dreamed of being an evil ruler with an army of underlings to do your bidding? For most of us, Overlord is as close as we can get to fulfill those twisted fantasies, and it generally does a pretty good job. At first glance, it appears as if Codemasters has created a straight-up adventure game, but the central focus on using your minion army to accomplish goals adds a strategic flavour to the game. This fusion results in an unusual and enjoyable style of gameplay, though it isn’t wit...

Final Fantasy XII (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy XII review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 25, 2007

The original Final Fantasy launched in December of 1987 in Japan, and was expected to be SquareSoft’s swan song. Twenty years and a merger later, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy has become one of the most successful and inappropriately named franchises in gaming history. As the Playstation 2 enters its final months, Square-Enix’s Final Fantasy XII is undoubtedly one of the biggest games at the tail-end of the PS2’s life. A significant switch in tone and game play provides the series with a breath of...
