Doom (Game Boy Advance)

Doom review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 05, 2007

It's a future day. As a Marine for Union Aerospace Corporation, or UAC, you're no pushover. You walk with purpose wherever you go, flexing as many muscles as possible. On the job one day, you hear a rumor that the Mars moonbase is having problems. This is somewhat surprising, as ever since its establishment, it had been surprisingly well-kept with few if any issues. As you hear more of the story, you realize that this is serious. Marines and scientists at the base are being slaughtered by hellis...

LEGO Racers (Nintendo 64)

LEGO Racers review (N64)

Reviewed on August 04, 2007

I've always hated Legos. Perhaps it's my lack of natural building skills, as I've never been into models, Tinker Toys, Jenga, or whatever else there is out there to stack, mold, or design. Figuring that the N64 racing game was just, well, a racing game, I didn't worry that my strong dislike of the toys might come into play. Well, put simply, I was completely wrong. The game involved building and customizing your car and your driver using animated Lego pieces. Alright, so this bugged me. I once a...

God of War II (PlayStation 2)

God of War II review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 04, 2007

Kratos. He was once a legendary Spartan warrior who fought in many great wars, and he conquered all of them. However, there was one battle he could not win. On the verge of a grisly defeat, he implored for the assistance of the God of War, Ares, to come down and smite his foes. In exchange for the godly intervention, Kratos’ soul now belonged to the vile deity. This set the scene for the events that occurred in the first God of War.

Gitaroo Man Lives! (PSP)

Gitaroo Man Lives! review (PSP)

Reviewed on August 04, 2007

Now that you can shred through your favorite tunes with a plastic guitar controller, the idea of using face buttons and analog sticks to keep the beat must seem antiquated. As the handheld remake of a 2002 PS2 cult classic, Gitaroo Man Lives! hopes you’re in need of such a blast from the past. But this game is about more than learning the rhythm of a few songs. It’s a story of a young man stuck with the strange name of U-1, as he rises from a wimpy doormat to an intergalactic savior. ...

The Ocean Hunter (Arcade)

The Ocean Hunter review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 03, 2007

If you, like me, have been wondering lately what it might feel like to shoot torpedoes at sharks and other underwater creatures, then you should immediately head to the nearest arcade with The Ocean Hunter in it. I was attracted to the game by its large guns and underwater theme. Bringing a buddy in with me, we inserted our trusty tokens and took the plunge, so to speak. The helpful screen introduced us to our animated counterparts, who happened to be two divers in tight, uncomfortable-looking w...

Twin Eagle (NES)

Twin Eagle review (NES)

Reviewed on August 02, 2007

In the early 1980s, the home console industry would fall apart (especially fueled by the bombing of Atari's E.T.), creating a lull in the gaming niche. This would pave the way for a re-emerging arcade dominance, especially as at the time they were much more powerful than what you would get out of a more convenient stay-at-home play. Oldies like Donkey Kong and Galaga looked much better on arcade than their 2600 counterparts, and without a console's constant specs to weigh them down...

Mario Party (Nintendo 64)

Mario Party review (N64)

Reviewed on August 02, 2007

Mini games are generally designed to be a distraction from the main game - a fun little addition to keep you busy if you get bored with the big picture. Other times mini games are cleverly squeezed into the main game as a way to beat enemies, get through some maze, or find an item. But Mario Party is unique in the way it implements its mini games: as the main part of its gameplay.

Within A Deep Forest (PC)

Within A Deep Forest review (PC)

If you are just one person, and you want to make a game, what should you focus on? Maybe the first thing is to get the ball rolling with a hero.

Doom (PC)

Doom review (PC)

Reviewed on August 01, 2007

Doom took the world by storm. You know the drill: all nine levels of opening episode Knee Deep in the Dead were released as a free demo, with network play included to boot. Videogame inspired homicides then soared almost as much as office productivity plummeted. And already I'm sure you've braced yourself for yet another tedious history lesson, the usual story about how we never would have had Halo or any of those other newfangled games without good 'ol iD Software laying down the foundations fo...

Contact (DS)

Contact review (DS)

Reviewed on August 01, 2007

Here’s what Contact’s box guarantees you won’t find in the game: A dull moment; normalcy; a guy with “spikey” hair and/or amnesia; dramatic monologues; the same battles you’ve been fighting since the 16-bit era.

Pariah (Xbox)

Pariah review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 01, 2007

Pariah is a bad first-person shooter that no one should be forced to play. It starts out boring and only manages to get mindless, repetitive, dull, and tedious. Between complex controls, an unexplained story, flat characters, poor graphics, a sloppy frame-rate, buggy sounds, and boring gameplay there is no enjoyment found in this tepid and monotonous adventure. It manages to hit every shooter cliché and never creates any uniqueness or memorable moments. By the time you end the second level or fi...

Silver Surfer (NES)

Silver Surfer review (NES)

Reviewed on August 01, 2007

The first thing you’ll notice about Silver Surfer is how awesome the music is. Most of my experience with this game has been on the pause screen in the first level listening to the soundtrack. This game embraces the NES’ limited sound capabilities; it’s like a techno chiptune remix before techno chiptune remixes existed. The drum samples are the most authentic you’ll hear on the NES. The melodies are catchy as all hell. These tunes are among the best on the system. Seriously. Obtain a copy of th...

Barney's Hide and Seek (Genesis)

Barney's Hide and Seek review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 31, 2007

Barney is enough to convince most people that dinosaurs went extinct for a very good reason. This pacifistic mass of purple and green foam was invented solely to entertain developing children not yet sophisticated enough to speak or eat with a closed mouth. We were all once like that, but even now I can recall never being inclined towards this goofy-voiced Tyrannosaurus Rex bursting with love, even at an age when one isn't expected to have discriminating tastes. My Kindergarten classmates...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Wii)

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix review (WII)

Reviewed on July 31, 2007

EA have produced all of the Harry Potter movie tie-in videogames to date. In the same space of time in which J. K. Rowling gave us seven novels using one trusted old technology – that of the printed word – EA gave us five videogames spanning three generations of increasingly powerful gaming consoles. And they've still managed to make the same darn game on at least three of those occasions, or so mutters my inner cynic. Yet this doesn't really matter. The EA Potter games are remarkably consistent...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 28, 2007

Forget the rain, forget trying to determine if Link is a stumpy elf or a cross-eyed, inbred troll, forget the much-argued cosmetics. Just... let them go. Focus on Link to the Past as it is; a mediocre game.

Rampage: World Tour (Nintendo 64)

Rampage: World Tour review (N64)

Reviewed on July 28, 2007

There's a commonly held belief that at least ninety percent of the people who have played Rampage don't have the slightest clue what the story of it is. Most don't understand why they are controlling a giant lizard or monkey or werewolf, and few comprehend why on earth they are destroying popular cities and eating poor, innocent, humans. For most of my gaming life, I was one of these people. Blissfully unaware of why I was doing it, I was killing and destroying left and right. Regretless,...

Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox 360)

Hitman: Blood Money review (X360)

Reviewed on July 25, 2007

Hitman: Blood Money would be the perfect Hitman game if it actually made you live up to the series' name. Mass murder is unsatisfying but easy: fire a shot up into the air and then go ballistic as every single living (if not intelligent) being on the map strolls right into your crosshairs, laughing off any return fire that barely chips away at your charitable health bar. Wiping out an entire cruise ship should be impossible, not impossibly tedious, and that the filthy money you're whacking folks...

Medal of Honor: Frontline (PlayStation 2)

Medal of Honor: Frontline review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 25, 2007

For the love of Goebbels, EA, I get it already. Saving Private Ryan was a milestone in film. This does not make it a template for all your subsequent World War II games to follow to the letter. What else should we attribute the big, loud, overlong battle sequences to, if not the defining vision of WWII for this generation? The influence of popular cinema on the Medal of Honor developers is essentially helping to ruin a franchise that was once so full of promise, any original ideas ...

Medal of Honor Underground (PlayStation)

Medal of Honor Underground review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 25, 2007

May 1940. Hitler has moved his Nazi war machine into France after a hasty surrender. Flanked by Goebbels, they watch gleefully as a formation of SS goose-steps down the Champs-Élysées. The Arc de Triomphe looms in the background. Standing for a photo opportunity, the Nazi leaders pose before the Eiffel Tower. Surely this black-and-white film will motivate troops fighting abroad, poised to lunge into the vast Eastern Front. The Thir...
