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 (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on March 28, 2007

As you enter the castle; the door shuts behind you. Now you realize that thereís 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 heís far too close to swing your whip at. Getting hit seems inevitable. However, you arenít going down without a fight. Just as the zombie is about to strike; y...

Yu Yu Hakusho: Dark Tournament (PlayStation 2)

Yu Yu Hakusho: Dark Tournament review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 27, 2007

Most gamers seem to believe that anime based games will be horrid no matter what. Although, every once in a while a game comes along that will defy this belief. Dark Tournament isnít one of those games. The sad thing is that there are many good Yu Yu Hakusho(from now on referred to as YYH) games in Japan. Yet for some reason only the bad ones were released in America. Oh well, enough of my history lesson. Youíre here to read about the game, not listen to me ramble on about the series.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas (PC)

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas review (PC)

Reviewed on March 27, 2007

From the moment I started playing through it, Rainbow Six: Vegas made me its bitch. I consider myself a connoisseur of first-person shooters. Iíve played dozens of them. But Iíve never really done tactical shooters and because of this inexperience, Rainbow Six: Vegas made me work to succeed. If I made any mistakes, the game capitalized by sending me to a game over screen almost instantly. And yet, I kept reloading the last checkpoint, chugging along at a snailsí pace, grudgingly re...

College Hoops 2K7 (PlayStation 2)

College Hoops 2K7 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 24, 2007

College Hoops 2K7 captures some of the wonderful media moments of NCAA basketball. In a dynasty, every season begins with Midnight Madness and a wild intrasquad practice. Shortly thereafter, facsimiles of talking heads Greg Gumbel and Clark Kellogg host a lengthy preview show, offering canned insight into the Top 25 poll, rundowns of preseason All-Americans, and outlines of high profile coaching changes. After conference tournaments conclude, the pair returns for the big Selection Sund...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Xbox 360)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review (X360)

Reviewed on March 22, 2007

If you were a kid in the late 80s or early 90s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the ****. The cartoon was at the height of its popularity and merchandise was selling like hotcakes. Then, in 1989, TMNT graced the arcades, causing hardcore fans to wet themselves in joy. If you were one of those kids, you better gear up because the nostalgia is going to hit you like a brick wall.

God of War II (PlayStation 2)

God of War II review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

God of War II is not complicated. Multi-faceted plot? Pfft. How about five cutscenes in the whole game? Yeah, that's right. Even though the game is inundated with a stupidly self-conscious epic narrative and an equally pompous musical score, you won't care once you press the start button. From beginning to end, God of War II is Exhibit A for ass-kickery. You know those parts in other games where you're just forcing yourself along so you can get to the next cool part? They don't exist in GoW2. Ev...

WarioWare: Smooth Moves (Wii)

WarioWare: Smooth Moves review (WII)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

It didnít take Nintendo long to realize that it took simple, fun and entertaining games to make the Wii a success. Thatís why, outside of Zelda, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves is the best game in the new systemís library and is a landmark for how to utilize the unique controller.

Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube)

Super Mario Sunshine review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

To be blunt, I hated Nintendoís approach to a 3-D Mario game. The idea of playing through the same level eight times, isnít exactly my idea of a fun game. Super Mario 64 is one of the most popular Mario titles, and arguably, games of all time. Its unique mixture of platforming and exploration was indeed a match that seemed to be made in heaven, but it was victim of its own circumstances. Levels, despite being large, were rather boring, enemies barely posed a threat and, although ...

Secret of Mana (SNES)

Secret of Mana review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

Most people do not realize it, but the now-hallowed Mana series did not begin with the seminal title which this review describes. It far started as Seiken Dentetsu - or as we here in the western hemisphere better know it, Final Fantasy Adventure. This landmark Gasmeboy title had its title altered to bank off Final Fantasy's recent success on the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was the first, but not the last time that Mana would play second fiddle to the more recognized Final Fantasy brand....

Beyond Good & Evil (PlayStation 2)

Beyond Good & Evil review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

In recent years, storytelling in our video games has grown somewhat stagnant. Some of the best selling titles of the previous generation of consoles were the products of ego-driven artists, producing shoddy action titles to fulfill their action hero wet-dreams. Am I the only one surprised by the fact that people who write "music" that consists mostly of "uh" and "yeah" are incapable of stringing together a decent story?

NBA 2K7 (Xbox 360)

NBA 2K7 review (X360)

Reviewed on March 18, 2007

When I first bought the Xbox 360 version of NBA 2K7, I had already played the PS2 version for many hours. I didn't think that two games with identical titles, cover arts, and game modes could be so different. It's not just a huge graphical upgrade; the two games are like night and day. It is the true sequel to 2KSports's NBA 2K6.

Clockwork Knight 2 (Saturn)

Clockwork Knight 2 review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 18, 2007

Saving the princess (again) ain't an easy job, and you realize this when taking your toy knight, Pepperouchau, through a bathroom stage in Clockwork Knight 2. As you ride on Barobaro, your nearsighted donkey, through puddles of water and on a narrow track, your toy opponents do everything they can to assure you won't make it to the stage's end. Octopuses riding on boats will come at you up ahead, while knight helmets running on beach balls will charge from behind, ensuring that you'll hav...

Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

As has been so aptly put, genius comes only rarely and unexpectedly, like a bolt of lightning out of a clear sky. It's rare that a game comes along which is so original, so creative, and so bizarre, that only the word "genius" can be sufficiently applied. Zombies Ate My Neighbors is one of those rare, unexpected works of genius.

World of Warcraft (PC)

World of Warcraft review (PC)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

When I originally set out to review World of Warcraft, one of the most critically and commercially successful games of all time, I reconsidered. Despite being a regular on the GameFAQs World of Warcraft forum for almost a year, and a regular visitor of that website for almost four years, I had never before reviewed a game. I decided to wait, build my chops by reviewing a few other games first. That was two months ago as I write this (January '06). Though admittedly I didn't exactly challenge mys...

Star Wars Bounty Hunter review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

Let's face it - the Star Wars video game franchise didn't get the best start when they first began to appear in arcades and later made the transition to the NES. But like a fine wine, they got better with age. The unplayable travesties of the original Star Wars games on the NES and Gameboy were replaced by the Super Star Wars Trilogy, decent action games which were weighed down by tedious and difficult 'speeder chase' levels. The franchise finally came into its own on the Nintendo 64, thanks in ...

Resident Evil 4 (GameCube)

Resident Evil 4 review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

It has been a few years since the last Resident Evil game was released. Capcom had reportedly sold the franchise's rights exclusively to Nintendo (but that went out the window when RE4 mysteriously appeared on the PS2 a year or so after its GCN release), and the latest Resident Evil game, RE0, had somehow managed to go almost completely under the radar. Only diehard Resident Evil fans seemed to be playing it. Only time would tell if RE4 would get the same treatment.

Resident Evil (GameCube)

Resident Evil review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

Before the release of the original Resident Evil in the mid1990s, the Survival Horror genre was an obscure, struggling subset of the Action genre. With sub par, little known games like Alone in the Dark and Clock Tower, Survival Horror was barely staying afloat. All that changed when Capcom, already a well established company with the legendary Megaman series under its banner, released a little game called Biohazard. It was an unexpected hit in Japan, and it was quickly released in the States, i...

Resident Evil Zero review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

There was a fullblown coup in the latest generation of video gaming consoles. Developers who had stood steadfastly with Nintendo over the years, particularly Rare, were jumping ship to produce titles on the Playstation 2 or the XBox. At the time, it seemed like the end of Nintendo. But there was one shining ray of hope: Capcom announced their intentions to not only continue developing games for Nintendo, but their flagship Resident Evil games would be available exclusively on the system.
