Virtua Tennis 3 (Xbox 360)

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 (DS)

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...

Rayman: Raving Rabbids review (WII)

Reviewed on October 23, 2007

As anyone not living under a rock knows: The Nintendo Wii has a lot of mini-game titles in its growing library. Some of these titles miss the point of success by a large margin, others however, are enjoyable games worth owning even if it is "yet another" mini-game collection. Rayman Raving Rabbids is one of these must owns.

Bleach: Shattered Blade review (WII)

Reviewed on October 18, 2007

Bleach. What a name. Upon hearing it, one might assume that this incredibly popular anime is about doing laundry. There have been stranger concepts, after all. There are no washing machines or fabric softener here. Bleach is all about three things: swords, souls, and kicking ass. It follows the saga of Ichigo, a student who accidentally acquired the abilities of the Grim Reaper. The rest of the series basically involves him traveling between his world and the Soul Society (aka the...

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on October 18, 2007

Phantom Hourglass is a bore. It takes the same tired gameplay we’ve been seeing for 20 years and throws some touch-screen functionality on it. Does the touch screen add much to the game? Not really. For every way in which it helps the gameplay, it also hinders it. It’s the definition of gimmick. For all but the most die-hard Zelda fans, Phantom Hourglass will be a long, boring trial to keep yourself awake.

Tales of Symphonia (GameCube)

Tales of Symphonia review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 14, 2007

When you hear the word GameCube what is the first thought that seeps into your brain? Nintendo franchises pummeling it out in Super Smash Brothers Melee? Probably. A demonic Spanish-speaking farmer advancing towards you, pitchfork in hand, straight from Resident Evil 4? Maybe that too. An RPG though? Never! This is quite true as the poor Cube, or even the ill-fated Nintendo 64, never saw many games from the genre. In a small handful of RPGs, maybe 40 to 50 tops, a few stood out as ...

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass review (DS)

Reviewed on October 13, 2007

You Nintendo bastards. You think you can take over the world with your touch screens and your motion-sensitive remotes? This battle against the conventions of gaming has raged on for years, and now look what you’ve done. You’ve dragged Zelda into this mess. Haven’t you reanimated enough familiar franchises as is? Can’t you give it a rest? You can do whatever you want to Kirby and Metroid, but not Zelda, man! LEAVE MY ZELDA ALONE!

WarioWare: Touched! (DS)

WarioWare: Touched! review (DS)

Reviewed on October 13, 2007

Wario Ware: Touched! is fun depending on what type of person you are. If you enjoy funny, light-hearted stories, unrolling toilet paper, and using a peeing statue to stop a forest fire this is definitely for you. You will do everything in this game from cutting, poking, sliding, and even blowing all via the touch screen, save the latter.

Portal (PC)

Portal review (PC)

Reviewed on October 12, 2007

A woman fires an obtuse, pale weapon in to a pit, jumps down roughly two stories, pops through a hole in her original level, and is propelled to an elevated platform. In the android supervisor’s Microsoft Sam-esc voice, “fast stuff goes in, fast stuff comes out.” Such is Valve’s new game, Portal, part of their Half-Life 2 Orange Box compilation.

Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core review (PS2)

Heaven or Hell? What’s it going to be, pal? You’ve got thirty seconds to choose. You going to go the good-natured paladin, or are you going to go with that flame-spouting anti-hero? How about the woman with the sentient hair? No? What about that aristocratic vampire? Not your style, eh? How about the swashbuckling womanizer, or the prepubescent pirate girl that’s pining after him? That veiled assassin with the pool cue looks like fun, too. Look at that ten-foot monster draped in a doctors coat, ...

Underworld (PlayStation 2)

Underworld review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 10, 2007

Yes, they made a game about the movie Underworld. According to all sources it was released exclusively in Europe in January 2004, and it received no media coverage whatsoever. There’s not a single word about this game in IGN, Gamespot, GameFAQs or even this site, apart from the purely technical data like the fact that it actually exists or who distributed it. If I found this game myself it was only because it was being sold (obscenely cheap, by the way) in some obscure game shop I happene...

Super Metroid review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 09, 2007

It’s raining. Not like a little sprinkle or a fine drizzle, but an all-out torrent. The water is running steadily down the sides of Samus Aran’s spaceship, sending mini-waterfalls cascading to the muddy ground below. No one is going to mind, though. The natives of Zebes have long since cleared out of here. The only welcoming committee Samus could have expected included a bunch of laser gun-toting Space Pirates and a host of intergalactic monstrosities. But right now, there’s only this vas...
