Kororinpa: Marble Mania (Wii)

Kororinpa: Marble Mania review (WII)

Reviewed on April 11, 2007

It’s quiet inside the room. Or at least, you think it is. There’s an upbeat tune coming out of the screen in front of you, and your breath is coming out in soft sighs. You’ve blocked the noise out, though; you’re too distracted to notice your surroundings. Your hand is trembling as you rotate it ever so slightly, turning the object with your fingers with the delicacy of a brain surgeon. Failure is not an option here; one slight miscalculated movement could spell utter disaster for your efforts. ...

Rogue Galaxy (PlayStation 2)

Rogue Galaxy review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 09, 2007

Imagine, if you will, the following scenario: A young blond orphan living on a desert planet ruled by galactic war suddenly finds himself confused for an infamous hunter and whisked away on glorious adventures. Now, but for a few key points, many gaming fans find this core idea so irritatingly familiar it near instantly drives them away from this game.

Bullet Witch review (X360)

NES classic, Contra. You ran from left to right, as either Blue Man or Red Man, dependant on whether you played with a friend or played with yourself, and shot guys who ran towards you.

Sengoku 2 (NeoGeo)

Sengoku 2 review (NEO)

Reviewed on April 08, 2007

By the leather of my bootstraps, they've gone out and done it. SNK has made the first game totally according to surrealist principles, and if it were done today, John Romero would more or less be involved. It's never too late to drop the old dependable Daikatana joke, I say. Now, I'm not totally against throwing together a bunch of set-pieces and not even bothering to link them with a storyline. Today's subject, the conglomeration of virtual ejacu-late known as Sengoku 2 (which tr...

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (Wii)

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 review (WII)

Reviewed on April 08, 2007

Meet Goku. He’s the hero of Dragon Ball Z, a man who has dedicated his life to martial arts and assisting the less fortunate. Of course, that’s just a euphemistic way of saying that the guy is nothing more than an obsessive martial artist with little understanding of the society around him. Few anime characters have the ability to be childishly naive and brutally lethal at the same time. Along with his merry band of super-powered vigilantes, prodigies, and rivals, our hero defends the Ear...

Metal Slug Anthology (Wii)

Metal Slug Anthology review (WII)

Reviewed on April 07, 2007

There’s a man dying in front of you. His gut has been shot wide open; he’s feebly struggling to keep his innards from slipping out onto his uniform. His camouflage used to be green to blend in with the jungle around you, but the blood seeping through the fabric has blown the man’s cover. This guy is just another nameless soldier fighting for a greater cause; his country will list both him and his fallen comrades as mere statistics once the fighting is done. Somewhere back home, he has a life. A ...

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion review (X360)

Reviewed on April 06, 2007

You vain piece of scum! Really think your pretty face matters while you’re standing behind bars, all up in shackles? Ha! Well enjoy your meager trace of freedom while it lasts, at any rate; which the Dark Elf man across the hall tells you with spite, is quickly burning from both ends.

Ossu! Tatakae! Ouendan! (DS)

Ossu! Tatakae! Ouendan! review (DS)

Reviewed on April 05, 2007

Intelligent gamers around the globe imported Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan when it was released in 2005. I’m not that smart. Elite Beat Agents had to smash its quirky brilliance into my brain to make me realize that its Japanese predecessor could be anything more than a foreign novelty. This is, after all, a game where a male cheerleading squad inspires people to overcome life’s tribulations. Some of Ouendan’s signature humor is lost without translation, but this rhythm game’s pr...

Dead Rising (Xbox 360)

Dead Rising review (X360)

Reviewed on April 01, 2007

A console could never call itself complete without some sort of blockbuster zombie affiliated game lying around in its library. Capcom, who has always been there for the horror genre, has released another zombie thriller to the market. However, in Resident Evil’s case, the consumer always fed off its haunting, bloodcurdling mood and atmosphere for desire. In Dead Rising, there are little to no survival-horror traits. Instead, there is only survival, and mindless brain-bashing festivity to be had...

Star Wars: Republic Commando (Xbox)

Star Wars: Republic Commando review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 01, 2007

Games based on movies rarely hit the mark. Developers are rushed to meet strict movie release deadlines, and on top of that it's difficult to translate a two-hour movie into a longer interactive adventure. By basing Republic Commando on the Star Wars prequel trilogy, Lucas Arts had the freedom of adhering to no movie in particular, and created an experience that's enjoyable regardless of your knowledge of the films. The result is a relentlessly entertaining shooter based in the Star Wars univers...

F.E.A.R: First Encounter Assault Recon review (X360)

Reviewed on March 30, 2007

With first person shooters becoming a staple of gaming on nearly all platforms, it’s becoming harder and harder to find the quality titles. However, behind the customary Halo’s and Metroid’s, one stands tall; it stands as a groundbreaking mix of atmosphere, gunplay, and exploration. That title is F.E.A.R.

Garfield and His Nine Lives (Game Boy Advance)

Garfield and His Nine Lives review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 30, 2007

Garfield’s overweight, lazy, constantly eating, and his sense of humor is mean-spirited, but you can’t help but love him. Whether you think he’s funny or not, Garfield is an instantly recognizable cultural icon. The iconic orange cat has been featured in movies, television, and on the back of car windows across the world. Garfield has been successful across a variety of mediums, but his success has never translated into the video game world. Garfield’s most recent foray into the electronic world...

Hitman: Blood Money (PlayStation 2)

Hitman: Blood Money review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 30, 2007

Hitman Blood money adds another installment to the Hitman game franchise, for those who are unaware these games place you at the helm as an unnamed spy/espionage agent simply known as “number 47 . His Job is to take contracts (assassination, theft, espionage, and tings of that nature). Having played several of the previous instalments I honestly expected this to be a rehash, or another much of the same cash cow title made to milk us for a quick buck.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (SNES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 29, 2007

When I was a kid, I knew Turtles in Time as the game where you could throw bad guys into the screen. Yes, that’s right. Into the screen. It’s the one unique twist in this otherwise typical beat-‘em-up. The game is about as brainless as it gets; beat up a bunch of foot soldiers, battle some big bad bosses, listen to the incredibly cheesy digitized voice samples along the way (“STARBASE: WHERE NO TURTLE HAS GONE BEFORE”), and generally have a good time. A monkey could have fun with this gam...

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 29, 2007

There are many reasons why one might be interested in playing King Kong. Some might wish to visit the digital retelling of a classic tale of a love that could never exist in our world. Someone else might find solace in an uplifting tale that shows that, in that very same world of humans, a behemoth ape turned out to be the most humane creature of them all.

Golgo 13: Top Secret Episode review (NES)

Reviewed on March 29, 2007

You gotta love Duke Togo. As the stylishly attired and jaded looking spook meets his female handler in an airport lounge, she introduces herself as "Maria Lovelette" and we can only imagine her flirtatious giggle when Togo replies with an eloquent ellipsis. Going full steam ahead, she doles out exposition for a painfully long time before arriving at her point -- the entire Red Army is after Mr. Togo because he has been the victim of a gosh-awful frame-up as part of some byzantine conspiracy.

Silent Hill (PlayStation)

Silent Hill review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 29, 2007

Everyone--to this day--compares Resident Evil to Silent Hill. Both surfaced around the same time, both games received enormous success with their original release and both brought the horror genre, at least for a time, into the spotlight. But in essence, comparing Resident Evil to Silent Hill is like comparing Dawn of the Dead to The Ring. Both are great in their own right, but one has a gore/survival feel to it, the other a haunting, psychological feel. In my opinion...

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on March 28, 2007

As you enter the castle; the door shuts behind you. Now you realize that there’s no turning back. Suddenly, groups of zombies come charging at you. Your pulse begins to quicken, but you remain calm and ready your weapon. You swing your whip just in time to turn the zombies into dust. Watch out! Another one is approaching from behind, and he’s far too close to swing your whip at. Getting hit seems inevitable. However, you aren’t going down without a fight. Just as the zombie is about to strike; y...
