Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (Xbox)

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 13, 2007

Ubisoft proved that it was serious about bringing the Prince of Persia series back in full force when it released The Sands of Time in 2003. The game had great level design, solid combat mechanics, and best of all a genuine storybook feel that made it something really special. For the first time in a long time, here was an action game that not only had great action, but a story and characters that gamers actually cared about. A year later Ubisoft released the sequel, Warrior Within, and gamers c...

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 13, 2007

One of the most common complaints that RPG fans have about the current state of the genre is that there's too much videos and storyline and not enough gameplay. While this does tend to be the rule nowadays, I as an RPG fan have no problem with this evolution, as role playing games have always focused on storyline and I am sure that if developers had the technology in the SNES/NES era, we'd have seen a lot more games like Xenogears and Final Fantasy X back then, too.

Wii Sports (Wii)

Wii Sports review (WII)

Reviewed on March 11, 2007

Gym class is the worst part of a school’s curriculum. There are few things more cringe-inducing than the shrill screech of a coach’s whistle. The morning sun turns the basketball courts into giant frying pans. The students around you are in a constant state of exhaustion due to their lacking physical skills. You can hear them grunting with each agonizing push-up. Their faces are the color of mashed tomatoes and flooded with sweat and tears. You can smell the sweet fragrance of body odor drifting...

Hang On GP (Saturn)

Hang On GP review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 11, 2007

Handling in Hang On GP is.... interesting. When you make a turn at a corner, your entire motorcycle will kiss the pavement in a millisecond. This wouldn't be much of a bad thing if you were actually turning that hard, but the thing is, you're not actually turning that hard. What may look like a hard turn on screen is actually something more of a normal turn, where you just move along a little bit. Of course, this is problematic when going through a bunch of corners in a race, due to the f...

Yoshi's Island DS (DS)

Yoshi's Island DS review (DS)

Reviewed on March 10, 2007

Poor Yoshi. Despite his role as one of Nintendo’s popular characters, he’ll never get the same kind of treatment that the Mario Brothers enjoy. This little green dinosaur amounts to little more than a sidekick, a beast of burden whose sole existence revolves around meaningless drudgery. Sure, Yoshi can eat wild berries and swallow enemies with a single lash of his lethal tongue. Big deal. He’ll never get the chance to kick Bowser’s ass, be the savior of the Mushroom Kingdom, or get smooched by P...

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Spearhead (PC)

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - Spearhead review (PC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2007

Medal of Honor: Allied Assault, the first PC game of the popular Medal of Honor series, was one of the first World War II based shooters to really capture the feel of the war. With impressive graphics, incredible sound, and an emphasis on historical events rather than fictional stories, the game quickly captured the attention of gamers. Allied Assault basically started the World War II FPS subgenre that we have all come to love and hate. While the early games in the series w...

CrimeWave (Saturn)

CrimeWave review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 07, 2007

Crime has gotten out of hand in the city of Mekeo, making the mayor resort to replacing the normal police force with bounty hunters. You are one of these bounty hunters, and your job is to drive around town in a souped-up "police car", find criminals, and blow them up on the spot. That's basically what you do in CrimeWave, and even though it's a simple premise, things get really heated at times. As you attempt to hunt down these criminals in an overhead perspective, catching up to them wi...

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 06, 2007

Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith is a simple, humble story about a whiny little pissant’s journey into becoming one of the most iconic villains in movie history. Its video game counterpart is a simple, humble story about a whiny little pissant walking to the right constantly and killing everything he sees.

Guardian Heroes review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 04, 2007

As you and your band of adventurers gather around the table, chatting about the sword you have acquired, a green-haired knight comes busting through the door. She warns about the royal knights raiding the place, and before you have time to process it all, you find yourself fighting off a group of soldiers in a burning building. You eventually escape, but as you make it to the streets, you see that more soldiers have been waiting for you. Everyone in your group escapes, but you stay behind with t...

Final Fantasy VI Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Final Fantasy VI Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

(Note: I never played the original FF6, so I have no real views on the new translation debate. However, from comparing scripts, I think the new script is a lot better and more clear. If you are playing the game for nostalgia, you should probably be doing it with a SNES controller in your hand anyway, that’s all I have to say on that…)

Devil May Cry (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

Talk of Devil May Cry being a Resident Evil sequel may seem less ridiculous in light of the fairly slick RE4, but even then it's a bit of a stretch. It's tough to imagine that the game was originally set to be a slow trek through cramped corridors, or that its arsenal of shotguns, pistols, and grenade launchers would have limited and carefully rationed ammo, or that its sword-toting antihero Dante might have been caught wielding a puny knife. More than anything, I can't picture him obeying those...

Pac-Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

I know what you’re thinking. Pac-Man? Survival Horror? Yes, a genre made famous by such classics as Alone in the Dark, Clock Tower, and Resident Evil actually got its start as one of the first video games ever created.

Man, I love playing with balls. Especially silver balls I get to smack around with flippers. And when I play with one long enough, a whole bunch of silver balls come out wanting to get smacked as well.

Lunar Knights review (DS)

Reviewed on February 25, 2007

After centuries of getting their asses kicked, vampires have learned one important thing: Dracula is overrated. No longer must the creatures of the night rely on some dark lord to suddenly appear. Instead, the bloodthirsty villains have taken over the world with a blend of magic, technology, and brute strength. To ensure their success, the vampires have created the paraSOL system, a satellite that blocks out the sun and envelops Earth in perpetual darkness. Without their precious sunlight, regul...

Clockwork Knight review (SAT)

Reviewed on February 25, 2007

In Clockwork Knight, you play the role of a wind-up toy, Pepperouchau, who has the daunting task of saving the kidnapped Princess Chelsea (yup, that plot). As you take control of this little toy knight, you'll end up traveling through eight stages in a house filled with toys that have gone bad. In one bedroom, you'll encounter nuisances like rotating clowns and knight helmets with pitchforks as you run across giant desks and bookshelves. Later on, you'll be in another room, walking on top...

DefCon 5 (Saturn)

DefCon 5 review (SAT)

Reviewed on February 21, 2007

Overwhelmed and irritated. Those are the feelings you'll get when you play through Defcon 5 for the very first time. As you set foot on a defense station in space, you need to make it all the way up to the Control Room and install a defense software. Getting there is an adventure in itself, since there's nothing within the game that really helps you move in the right direction. The only real help you'll get is from the instruction manual, and even then, it's still a bit confusing. If you ...
