Tomb Raider: Anniversary (PC)

Tomb Raider: Anniversary review (PC)

Reviewed on June 26, 2007

Tomb Raider: Anniversary is Crystal Dynamics' reimagining of the original Tomb Raider. Whether Tomb Raider's greatest contribution to gaming was its generously portioned main character, Lara Croft, or its unique platforming gameplay, very little about the original game has actually aged well. However, Anniversary takes those few elements that remain strong today -- namely the level design -- and combines them with modern gameplay to create a game that feels fresh and that is spectacularly fun...

Revolution X (Genesis)

Revolution X review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 26, 2007

The New Order Nation is ruining everything, attempting to put an end to anything resembling fun. So, as this oppressive army slowly tries to take over the world, what devastating thing do they do next? Kidnap the President of the United States? Invade and take over countries? Threaten everyone with nuclear weapons? Nope, it's much, much worse than all of that. Brace yourselves... they abduct Aerosmith. Oh my God, it's on now. Of course, you just happen to be at the club where they were ab...

Just Cause (PlayStation 2)

Just Cause review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 24, 2007

As the sun rises over the nation of San Esperito, the local townsfolk prepare for another day of senseless bloodshed. Drug traffickers and petty criminals have long overrun the land, turning into it their own private haven. Things have gotten so corrupt that even the President Mendoza is in on the action. Meanwhile, innocent civilians are being gunned down by the dozens, la policia are idly standing by, and poverty continues to run rampant. Indeed, things look pretty grim. Along a curving...

Chaos Legion (PlayStation 2)

Chaos Legion review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 23, 2007

Meet Sieg Warheit. Despite his fancy title of the Dark Knight of Glyph, his job basically involves kicking evil’s ass. Armed with little more than a glowing sword, divine magic, and a flowing cape, Sieg has to wander through medieval Europe and annihilate all the demons roaming the countryside. While brutally slaughtering hordes of random evil beings is little more than a day at the office for him, Sieg’s latest assignment is a bit more intriguing. An angst-ridden villain (who happens to be his ...

Coryoon (TurboGrafx-16)

Coryoon review (TG16)

Reviewed on June 22, 2007

Shooters are often characterised as incredibly hard, intense games so it's only natural that someone in Japan had the brilliant idea of making a pure shooter aimed squarely at kids. Behold Coryoon: Child of Dragon, the garishly cute product of that idea. Surprisingly enough, it all works well enough that any kid could pick it up and have a blast... until they die. And die. And die again. This sporadically brilliant game is nearly killed by its one major flaw.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on June 21, 2007

Re-watching Star Wars: Episode III lately, I marveled at the complex politics that the ill-fated prequel-ogy introduced to every nerd’s favorite very, very distant galaxy. Indeed, before the vicious Empire and the heroic Rebellion, there was the noble Republic and the scheming Separatists, and, ho! Before all that, there were the Jedi and the Sith—the religious zealots, if you will, of the interstellar Crusades.

Sonic CD (Sega CD)

Sonic CD review (SCD)

Reviewed on June 21, 2007

Today's platformers have lost their magic and zing, partly because developers add in gimmicky features that simply do not work. I'm talking about the talking water pumps, the vacuum cleaners, and the freaking pointless "teamwork style" (controlling three characters at once) gameplay that no one (at least not I) asked for. Just because a feature is new in a game series doesn't mean it's good or worthwhile, get that through your heads, game making people, Jesus Christ on a stick. Sonic CD is a shi...

Threads of Fate review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 20, 2007

Imagine yourself as you run quickly through a beautifully detailed cave. The bluish-green crystalline walls, the distant sound of a waterfall rushing through your ears, and a haunting melody that plays in the background as you hack + slash your way through a myriad of monsters. Suddenly, you come to a ledge. Floating tiles, one of which is flashing, circle around this ledge, and you have to jump on the ones that flash. You hold your breah, and take a leap of faith... and miss. Plunging into the ...

Power Stone Collection (PSP)

Power Stone Collection review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 20, 2007

The Power Stone series has returned and delivers great multiplayer fighting action for the PSP. The overall game experience isn't actually new, but due to the fact the Dreamcast console that carried the game was only sold for two years, most gamers probably haven't played it, which means most people will truly be playing a brand new game.

F-15 Strike Eagle II (Genesis)

F-15 Strike Eagle II review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 20, 2007

The Cold War is over, America having triumphed over the hypothetical Russian threat. Our military technology won out over what the Communists tried to call an "air force". As a downside to that, lots of cheap USSR military surplus became available to neighboring regions, such as the newly formed and conflicted Eastern Bloc territories and further into the Middle East, a mecca for terrorism. In short, the region has not yet been fully stabilized. Enter you, The Destabilizer, in your pimpin' F-15 ...

Pokemon Pearl review (DS)

Reviewed on June 19, 2007

Since the beginning of mankind, anyone who has told a story, has furthered the idea of the Hero. In the 1940's, Joseph Campbell wrote a book called "The Hero with a Thousand Faces", in which Joseph claims every story has already been told and it is necessary to continue to retell these stories. He went on to detail the Hero's Journey and the Characters who accompany the hero. So we are telling the exact same story as our ancient ancestors. Campbell's book his inspired one of his best friends to ...

God Hand (PlayStation 2)

God Hand review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 19, 2007

All you do in God Hand is whoop ass. The game doesn’t make a big secret of this; hell, the box art is just a fist punching some guy’s face. Do you like whooping ass? If your answer is yes, then you’d best ignore the so-so reviews God Hand received from gaming critics and give it a whirl, as it is some of the best dumb fun you’ve had in awhile. Yes, that’s right, fun. None of those conceited terms like “depth” could be used in reference to God Hand, but it doesn’t matter, because it provid...

Mortal Kombat II (PlayStation 3)

Mortal Kombat II review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 19, 2007

Love it or hate it, Mortal Kombat has become a household name since its release in 1991. A fighting game that utilized digitized actors depicting acts of gratuitous violence certainly caused a stir amongst critics, and received fairly widespread backlash from politicians. This was a dark yet exciting time for game players, as they got to lavish in a fight to the death—courtesy of their local arcade. But it wasn't until the release of the sequel—aptly titled Mortal Kombat II—that the foundations ...

Die Hard Arcade review (SAT)

Reviewed on June 18, 2007

It's quiet. Too quiet. As your red battleship sits at the very top of the screen doing nothing, the rest of the watery field that takes up most of the screen... also has nothing going on with it. But then you look at the sonar and see a bunch of dots arriving from the left and right side of your screen. Seconds later, white submarines pop up and start launching torpedoes to the surface. Obviously, this is the point where you counterattack by throwing depth charges into the sea. It starts off a b...

SNK vs. Capcom: Card Fighters DS review (DS)

Reviewed on June 17, 2007

SNK vs. Capcom. That phrase conjures up images of dozens of martial artists slaughtering each other with a slew of fireballs and flurries of kicks and punches. Those epic clashes were a fighting game fan’s dream come true; who could imagine that Street Fighter’s Ryu would ever trade blows with Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard? Accordingly, the crossover games were a huge success; they were so popular that they even got their own spin-off titles. Thus SNK vs. Capcom Card Fighter’s Clash...

It must be easy having a superhero in your life. Gotham City would be screwed without the exploits of Batman keeping its people safe from the Joker and other villains. Without Superman crushing Lex Luthor, the denizens of Metropolis wouldn't stand a chance. And for the people of the Morning and Evening Cities, their problems are danced away by a group of superheroes known only as Ouendan.

The Lord of the Rings: Shadows of Angmar review (PC)

Reviewed on June 15, 2007

Despite all the hype, while it does a good job of being true to the Tolkien genre, and they did a fine job of producing a fantasy world that doesn't look like it is in a fantasy. The graphics reproduce a natural view of woodland nature. Still, the game is very rough. IMHO they released it wayyy too early.

Art of Fighting 3: The Path of the Warrior (Arcade)

Art of Fighting 3: The Path of the Warrior review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 14, 2007

Poor Robert. He’s the secondary hero of the Art of Fighting series, but nobody really cares about him. The games are focused more on Ryo, the main hero, and his ability to kick evil’s ass throughout the city of Southtown. The only things that Robert has going for him are a vast amount of wealth, facial features worthy of a Spanish soap opera heartthrob, designer jeans (because you have to look stylish when you’re beating criminals to a bloody pulp), and the fact that Ryo’s little s...
