Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on July 06, 2007

It seems that for every great Pokemon RPG we get on handhelds, we get six thousand lame spin-offs on consoles. See, a few people have yet to realize this, but the earlier Pokemon games for Game Boy mark some of the greatest RPGs of all time – they are massive, extraordinarily deep, expansive, immersive, open for all sorts of play strategies, and, as we've seen, accessible to all ages. Pokemon Snap came around the beginning of the great Pokemon revolution – and just wh...

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 06, 2007

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean is a game you can almost review without even playing it. It was published by Namco, who generally issues quality products, and it's the joint production of Monolith Soft and tri-Crescendo; the former is responsible for the Xenosaga series, while the latter I'm not familiar with but is probably related to tri-Ace, the team responsible for the stellar Star Ocean games. The title's stunning art direction was handled by Yasuyuki Hon...

Shadow Hearts review (PS2)

There are certain people I know that scan the Internet and store shelves in hopes of finding a hip kind of game.

Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)

Metal Gear Solid review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 06, 2007

This alleged PSX "classic" has been ravaged by the years, made totally irrelevant in less than a decade. Even when Metal Gear Solid first hit, consensus was it was "too easy" and contained "too little gameplay"; even though either of those things could kill your garden-variety stealth adventure, most of the overwhelming praise was directed towards its storytelling, rather than actual content. Leave it to rock star game designer Hideo Kojima to make the first interactive spy/romance...

The Bard's Tale (Xbox)

The Bard's Tale review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

If you're a parody – I know you're not, but let's just say you are – then there are two major things you have to do. Number one, you have to be funny. Parodies, spoofs, satires, they're all played for laughs by poking fun at a certain category of music, literature, or in this case, gaming. But the other thing all parodies need to watch out for is that they don't sink to the level of that which they are spoofing. That kind of beats the purpose, you know what I'm sayin'?

DJ Max Portable 2 (PSP)

DJ Max Portable 2 review (PSP)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

DJ Max Portable 2 hails from Korea, but it might as well sit on every retail shelf in America. The first time it’s loaded up, the game lets you select between options of English, Korean, and Japanese. From that point forward, all instructions appear in the chosen language. This title is an exciting test of your rhythmic ability, it’s packed with an eclectic mix of music, and it’s perfectly accessible to a large portion of the game-playing public.

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Game Boy Advance)

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

If you know me well – and, let’s face it, you probably don’t – then you may have picked up that The Legend of Zelda is my favorite videogame franchise of all time, and that, as far as I'm concerned, few other games can even come close to matching Zelda’s consistency and reliability to deliver challenge, intelligence, and solid thrills all around.

F-Zero GX (GameCube)

F-Zero GX review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

F-Zero GX is almost certainly one of the most beautiful GameCube games on the market. The most recent console entry in the futuristic racer series boasts some of the most varied and detailed environments on the system. The enormous sci-fi cityscapes reach up and engulf the player in a bustling and fully realized videogame world. Ships buzz about. Neon lights flash and whirl. Skyscrapers block out the sun. It’s a sight to behold.

Vagrant Story (PlayStation)

Vagrant Story review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

By and large, most RPGs aren't hard, really. They merely take a lot of time and effort to complete. This is because most RPGs base the player's skill on how much experience they've obtained, how many battles they've won. Racking up experience points is a time-consuming process, and it's hardly a challenge, unless you consider the test of endurance involved “challenging.” Your typical Final Fantasy or Dragon Warrior really doesn't take much skill to beat, now, does it?

Hour of Victory (Xbox 360)

Hour of Victory review (X360)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

"Dear Seargent Ross, Taggert and Bull. I am writing you not because you represent the best that the allied forces have to offer, but because you are the best that the allies have to offer. The sacrifices that you have made for your country are immense, but the sacrifices that you are about to make are undescribable"

WarioWare: Smooth Moves (Wii)

WarioWare: Smooth Moves review (WII)

Reviewed on July 05, 2007

Have you ever sat on your couch, Wii Remote in hand, wishing you could use it to scrub the dirty hind end of a cow? Probably not. But WarioWare: Smooth Moves allows you to do so. Even after playing the rather enjoyable GameCube incarnation of WarioWare, there seemed to be a lingering feeling that this series should have remained in GBA/DS form. Smooth Moves is bold in it's assertion that you'll enjoy the large number of extremely strange tasks it asks you to perform.

Street Fighter: The Movie (Saturn)

Street Fighter: The Movie review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 04, 2007

When I popped this CD into my Saturn, I was pumped. Yes, I was looking forward to playing Street Fighter: The Movie. I mean, finally, a video game that gives me the opportunity to play as Kylie Minogue! So, as I pass the title screen and enter Movie Battle mode, I was ready to rock out with her. However, once the first "cutscene" (a still picture from the movie and some text) was finished, I was stuck in a fight controlling Jean-Claude Van Damme. I was bummed out... for a few seconds. The...

Metal Slug review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 04, 2007

In the 2020's, terrorism is a bitch. Within the army, a frothing rebel front amasses due to inaccuracies in the regular army's intelligence reports. Circa '96 this branch of the army is lead under the supervision of one General Morden, fighting off patriots with an ultimate aim to assassinate the President of the United States. Falling short on the attempted assassination, the rebel army turned their sights upon attacking the regular army soldiers in an intense civil war. The 1st and 2nd Lueite...

Gunstar Super Heroes (Game Boy Advance)

Gunstar Super Heroes review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

If a good review requires an analogy, then I will say that comparing Gunstar Super Heroes to a bigger, better, more complete action game is like comparing the Bible to an actual novel. This is to say nothing of my religious beliefs or my opinion on the Bible as a piece of historic literature (my thoughts on this matter do not belong at a place like HonestGamers), but let's make this clear: Do you ever just read the Bible, chapter by chapter, like a normal book? Of course not. You r...

The Darkness (Xbox 360)

The Darkness review (X360)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

At the beginning of 2004, Starbreeze Studios was an almost entirely unknown developer. When word got out that they were at the helm of a game based on the movie, The Chronicles of Riddick, the response was one of almost complete indifference. Yet, when the game was released later that year, it was heralded as one of the best games of 2004, and with good reason -- Starbreeze had created an FPS that that was far more than a mere corridor shooter. Riddick was an extremely polished ...

Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords review (DS)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

If you’re of the opinion that RPGs have become stale, do yourself a favor and check out Puzzle Quest for the Nintendo DS. Thematically similar to classic sword-and-sorcery role-playing games, Puzzle Quest casts you in the role of saving an Arthurian land from an overwhelming dark presence. But when’s the last time you saved the world with a game of Bejeweled? With its unprecedented mixture of stat-building and puzzling, Puzzle Quest becomes a great game whose originality and general weirdness wi...

Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone (Game Boy Color)

Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Construction zone is just what it says it is, you’ve got a whole plethora of trucks to use and are assigned these tasks in your truck depending on what function the truck can undertake. There’s five stages, ranging from the forest, the farm, the neighbourhood or even the city, each with some uniqueness in the objectives but at the same time does feel slightly similar.

Half-Life 2: Episode One (PC)

Half-Life 2: Episode One review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Half Life 2 Episode One is the next instalment of the Half-Life series, arguably the backbone of the FPS genre, and after the 1998 blockbuster and the successful sequel 6 years later, Valve decided to release Half Life 3 in three shorter episodic chunks to make release times faster. That means you don’t have to wait until 2022 to learn about the conclusion to the story.

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 03, 2007

Let’s get this one straight, if you play PC games and haven’t heard of Half Life then you must have been wearing a blindfold each time you were in the game store, and held under house arrest otherwise. The original Half Life was released in 1998, a success in its own right and also supplied a game engine used as a basis for many popular mods, such as Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat being the most popular plus two official expansions released, Opposing Force and Blue Shift in 1999 and 2001 respe...
