Rayman: Raving Rabbids (Wii)

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)

Reviewed on October 10, 2007

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 (SNES)

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...

Boom Boom Rocket (Xbox 360)

Boom Boom Rocket review (X360)

Reviewed on October 08, 2007

Are they birds? Are they planes? No, they’re an array of fireworks from Bizarre Creations (Project Gotham Racing series) Boom Boom Rocket (BBR), a game exclusive to the Xbox Live Arcade on the Xbox 360. Boom Boom Rocket is a music game similar to Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Instead of a dance mat or guitar, you use your Xbox 360 controller. For 800 Microsoft points ($10), Boom Boom Rocket is an interesting idea.

Bomberman Live (Xbox 360)

Bomberman Live review (X360)

Reviewed on October 08, 2007

Long gone are the days of the dump that was Bomberman: Act Zero, and good riddance. Bomberman Live doesn't quite bring a new level of gameplay into the franchise - yes, there are new game modes - but it's still the same, good old bomb the hell out of everythingť mechanic we've come to know and adore. For those unfamiliar with the series, a match begins with one player in each corner of a maze of blocks, some indestructible, some not. The player makes their way around by blowing up blocks (and...

Cooking Mama: Cook Off review (WII)

Reviewed on October 08, 2007

I'm an actual chef (part time) and I can tell you that it'd be more worth it to just learn to cook. This game isn't really flawed, other than the Wiimote bugging out and flying up when you swing down, but it's not that fun.

The Darkness (Xbox 360)

The Darkness review (X360)

Reviewed on October 08, 2007

I have one thing to say about The Darkness: people give this game far too much love. This game wasn't bad. It wasn't good, but it definitely wasn't bad. The graphics are pretty in HD, the search quests are aggravating, controlling your darkness snakes is unpredictable, and aiming is imprecise. I can't tell you how many times I went to shoot for a light as to not be noticed while enemies were around and got slaughtered because they heard ba-bang bang and ran around some corner, guns-a-blazing.
