Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo (PlayStation 2)

Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 28, 2007

Meet Hyakkimaru. He’s the epitome of the generic video game samurai hero. He has the stoic attitude befitting of an ancient Japanese warrior, a stylish robe that flows along with his smooth moves, and a single katana that can cut through just about anything. He quietly traverses the countryside, fighting injustice in its various forms, saving innocent people from the morally corrupt and certain death, and trying to figure out his place in the world. His skills with a sword are unparalleled; allo...

Daytona USA (Saturn)

Daytona USA review (SAT)

Reviewed on January 28, 2007

Daytona USA sucks. Graphically. Playing through the game for the first time, you'll be appalled by the constant pop-ups that plague each track. One second, you'll be seeing nothing up ahead but the pretty, blue sky, only to be staring at a tunnel that you need to enter the very next second. And if you've never played the arcade version before, you'll most likely have a hard time figuring out some of the objects in the game. In the Beginner track, there's an instance where you'll suddenly ...

Elite Beat Agents (DS)

Elite Beat Agents review (DS)

Reviewed on January 27, 2007

What are the odds that a quirky and comic style music game released by a little known developer would be the best DS game of 2006? Well apparently very good, if Elite Beat Agents is anything to judge by. Elite Beat Agents comes very close to flawlessly combining colorful manga, beat dancing, and saving the world, while still creating an environment that is loads of fun. Developed by little-known company Inis, Elite Beat delivers an experience unlike anything you’ve probably played before. Furthe...

Goemon: Mystical Ninja (DS)

Goemon: Mystical Ninja review (DS)

Reviewed on January 24, 2007

As the sun rises of the land of Edo, Goemon wakes up to the sound of angry yelling. Before he can even get his bearings, he is faced with a large mob of irate villagers armed with torches, pitchforks, spears, and other pointy objects. Apparently, they’ve come to either arrest Goemon or lynch him on the spot. Using nothing but his skills of disguise and a little luck, our hero manages to escape his likely death and meet up with Ebisumaru, his best friend/ partner/ ambiguously non-straight ninja. ...

Wii Sports review (WII)

Reviewed on January 22, 2007

You step up to the tee. You observe the wind, take a look at the lie of the fairway, and aim your shot accordingly. Finally, you select your club, and after a couple of practise shots, you swing for all you are worth.

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Game Boy Advance)

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 21, 2007

Kirby platformer games have always been loaded to the brim with quality and a unique style. Floating through the air, and swallowing enemies to gain their special abilities as our pudgy, pink protagonist is a formula that works, and one that would have continued to work if HAL had stuck with it. But instead of sticking with the tried-and-true method of making a Kirby game, they've decided to give us something new with Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. Taking a leaf out of the Metroid games, The Amaz...

Samurai Western (PlayStation 2)

Samurai Western review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 21, 2007

As the sun blazes high in the noonday sky, Gojiro Kiryuu prepares for battle. A few hundred paces away, a group of cowboys have their guns pointed at him. All of the residents have either fled the town or been shot to Hell in a hail of bullets. Such terror and murder is bittersweet; at least Gojiro won’t have to worry about any innocent bystanders getting hurt in the upcoming showdown. Aside from this lone hero, the only things left alive in this godforsaken town are the gunmen arming their weap...

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 17, 2007

Twilight Princess' design is often so well thought-out that I have to wonder why Nintendo gave it much of a story at all. Link is transformed into a wolf the very first time he pokes his head into Hyrule Castle, and it's a fantastic moment simply for how wrong everything is. Prison guards are noticably absent from the jails, and would seem absent from the sewers as well were it not for the beast's heightened senses--instead, their spirits can be overheard fearing for their lives due to demons th...

Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra (PlayStation 2)

Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 16, 2007

We’ve come to expect three things from the Xenosaga RPGs: a deep, epic plot, an insane number of amazingly well-done cutscenes, and terrible gameplay. Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra (Thus Spoke Zarathustra, for those unfamiliar with Nietzsche) is the long-awaited finale to the series, bringing the series-spanning storyline to a conclusion, and it meets about half of these expectations. This is both good and bad.

Phantasy Star Universe (PC)

Phantasy Star Universe review (PC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2007

Phantasy Star is one of the older RPG series out there. Many are the people who look back with fond memories on the aging Sega Genesis classics, and remember RPGs that could compete with the SNES's much larger library.

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition (Xbox 360)

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition review (X360)

Reviewed on January 15, 2007

“Next-generation” has been the de facto gaming buzzword for some time. It’s just a generic promise of some nebulous step forward, but the escalating Sony-Microsoft arms race has made the term virtually prerequisite. If a new title isn’t promising hot, steamy next-generation action, if it isn’t bringing the next-generation revolution into your living room, then forget it, buster.

God Hand (PlayStation 2)

God Hand review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 15, 2007

I knew God Hand was special shortly into the game. After smacking around hordes of goons armed with sledgehammers, two by fours and spiked clubs, I found myself in the most unusual of situations. My character had entered a colorful hidden carnival in the middle of a dusty spaghetti western town. A stage could be seen in the distance showcasing dancing brawlers. A voice was then heard.

Ninja Five-O (Game Boy Advance)

Ninja Five-O review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 15, 2007

When I was a boy, I had decided that when I grew up, I wanted to be a ninja. An unorthodox career choice, no doubt, and I came to learn that the Midwest American workforce had little need for a professional ninja. In fact, a ninja nowadays is likely to have considerable difficulty finding a market for their particular set of skills. Tragic, but truth.

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 14, 2007

As sacrilegious as it may sound, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance falls flat on its face when it comes to delivering the epic storyline expected of any Final Fantasy title to date. But whereas the premise fails, FFTA makes up for it with a battle system that works... really well. In that sense, FFTA is an example of a game driven primarily by its gameplay, as opposed to its storyline. Although considerably overshadowed by its superior predecessor, Final Fantasy Tactics, FFTA still manages to do a t...

Legend of the Mystical Ninja (SNES)

Legend of the Mystical Ninja review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 12, 2007

While Goemon himself is rather recognisable, it’s pretty hard to actually pin down where you’ve seen him before. Since I’m a Brit, the only Goemon games that I can actually play are this one and its sequel on the N64, due to the fact that they were the only ones translated into the English. Which is a damn shame, considering how enjoyable this title is, but thanks to the wonder of emulation, I managed to enjoy what it had to offer.

LOOM review (PC)

Reviewed on January 11, 2007

Once upon a time in a land far away lived a young boy called Bobbin Threadbare. Bobbin was a shy fellow, keeping his face constantly hidden beneath a grey hood, with only a shining pair of bright blue eyes visable admist the shadows. He was also an outcast in his own village; a shunned boy of seventeen who had no friends save Hetchel , the old woman who raised the boy and introduced him to the art of weaving.

Reviewed on January 10, 2007

Meet Luke fon Fabre. He’s the typical byproduct of the nobility social class, a teenager who is spoiled rotten and assumes that the world revolves around him. He lounges around the estate grounds all day, stuffing his face full of free meals, and getting combat training from his mentor, Van. Luke is lazy, whiny, and utterly self-righteous. However, this arrogant little bastard does have a few issues that need resolving. He frequently hears a voice in his mind calling out to him, causing him to k...

Sonic R (Saturn)

Sonic R review (SAT)

Reviewed on January 08, 2007

Sonic the Hedgehog has several things going for him. Decked out in sleek blue fur and stylish red sneakers, he’s the epitome of what a game mascot should be. He’s hip, cool, and fun to be around. Though his obsession with chilidogs isn’t exactly healthy, he’s still far more of an interesting and dynamic character than his rival over at Nintendo. Image aside, Sega’s blue blur has one thing going for him: his pure, unbridled speed. Once those feet of his start up, it’ll take an act of God (or a we...
