Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra (PlayStation 2)

Xenosaga Episode III: Also sprach Zarathustra review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 16, 2007

Weíve 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

ďNext-generationĒ has been the de facto gaming buzzword for some time. Itís 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 isnít promising hot, steamy next-generation action, if it isnít 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, itís pretty hard to actually pin down where youíve seen him before. Since Iím 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 (PC)

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.

Tales of the Abyss review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 10, 2007

Meet Luke fon Fabre. Heís 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, heís the epitome of what a game mascot should be. Heís hip, cool, and fun to be around. Though his obsession with chilidogs isnít exactly healthy, heís still far more of an interesting and dynamic character than his rival over at Nintendo. Image aside, Segaís blue blur has one thing going for him: his pure, unbridled speed. Once those feet of his start up, itíll take an act of God (or a we...

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved review (X360)

Youíre about to die. A few thousand yards away from your warship, a black hole is slowly consuming every particle of matter in the immediate area. Despite your best efforts to pull your spacecraft away, youíll get sucked in a matter of minutes and be stretched into oblivion. Your only hope of salvation comes in the form of the laser cannons mounted on the outside of the ship; a few well-placed blasts of energy will wipe out the black hole and allow you to roam the cosmos once again.

Ridge Racer 7 (PlayStation 3)

Ridge Racer 7 review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 04, 2007

In 1995, Namco debuted the first of what would eventually become one the most well known racing franchises in the gaming industry. Always at the height of graphical achievements, Ridge Racer has earned its right to be the first to show off the true power the next-generation consoles have to offer. So itís no surprise that you could find it on the shelves, right next to the elusive PS3, (or lack thereof), on launch day.

Dark Stone is a game where challenges lie ahead, dungeons await looting and monsters sign their death sentences. With a multiple ways to play this game, itís no surprise it has nearly infinite replay value. Nearly.

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 (Wii)

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 review (WII)

Reviewed on January 04, 2007

DBZ: Budokai Tenkaichi 2 is a sequel of a spin-off of the original Budokai fighting franchise that Atari established in 2002. Back then, all fighting games were exactly the same. They gave you a side-view perspective in versus matches that lasted multiple rounds. This was the norm since the dawn of the fighting genus, the release of Kung Fu. Budokai was no different. It seemed that the traditional outline of the genre was never going to change, and the only thing developers were going to im...

Gears of War review (X360)

Reviewed on January 02, 2007

When an army of disgusting, repulsive, and blood-thirsty beasts decide to tunnel up through the surface of the earth and slaughter billions of people, it can really put a damper on an otherwise happy and sunny day. That's what happened fourteen years ago on Emergence Day; a day where every major city on the planet was simultaneously attacked by the Locust Horde. This is the chaotic world that Gears of War is set in; and though we'd all hate to actually live in such a world, it makes for one hell...

Sonic Heroes (Xbox)

Sonic Heroes review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 01, 2007

Sonic Heroes is a cheesefest. You'll know this immediately because the title screen theme will just hit you HARD with its joyous lyrics ("SONIC HEEEEEROES! SONIC HEEEEEROES!"), and if you're man enough to stay and not sprint to the menu screen, you'll get a chance to hear the full version afterwards when a video starts playing. Not cheesy enough, you say? Well, thankfully, that's not all. Throughout the entire game, the characters will chatter nonstop throughout each stage, uttering goofy...

Reviewed on December 29, 2006

Forget what you learned in history class: Princess Anastasia was a feisty princess that traveled the world defeating monsters, and Rasputin sold his soul to a demon in exchange for magical powers and a sweet fortress. Also, the catastrophic casualties of World War I can be blamed on a secret society that unleashed ďmaliceĒ upon the world from a building at the Vatican.

Super Mario Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Super Mario Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 25, 2006

We all know what that when Nintendo releases a new system they accompany it with some sort of Mario game. Thatís been the case until the Wii broke tradition, even if a title or two in particular didnít star Mario. You know what Iím talking about. In the case of the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo did provide a Mario game at launch, however it was not an original game. They still havenít provided an original Mario platformer for the GBA, and instead just feed us ports of old NES and SNES titles.

Meet Ippo Makunouchi. He was once a shy and quiet high school student, the kind of kid that bullies love to pick on. One day, a gang of such bullies cornered Ippo and beat the hell out of him. But just when things were about to get really serious, a professional boxer named Takamura showed up, sent the punks squealing for their mommies, and took the Ippo back to his gym. Seeing how emotionally distraught Ippo was, Takamura allowed the kid to beat on a punching bag to vent his frustrations. But a...

F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point review (PC)

Reviewed on December 18, 2006

Once I beat last yearís FEAR, all I wanted was to play more FEAR games. Thatís always a great feeling to have. The intense, well-paced combat forced players to constantly search for new positions in crowded, enemy-congested rooms. The combat wasnít about circle-strafing around your enemies like in most first-person shooters that came before it. In FEAR, battles were about carefully positioning yourself behind pillars or walls so that you might be able to get a headshot on yo...
