Uplink: Hacker Elite (PC)

Uplink: Hacker Elite review (PC)

Reviewed on September 14, 2006

There is a brilliant idea that inspires Uplink: Hacker Elite, and it largely rests at the intersection of the state of present day technology, and the timeless intrigue that surrounds crime and criminals, so deeply-rooted that it taps human nature. There have long been games depicting crime, going all the way back to the Atari 2600, and the monumental Grand Theft Auto series is inarguably the one that has most recently brought the issue of game crime and violence into the limelight...

Jak II (PlayStation 2)

Jak II review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 12, 2006

Jak II is the product of a long line of cartoony platformers produced by Naughty Dog. Unlike the first game in the series, Jak II tweaks the formula by implementing GTA-esque design. Playing as both Jak and his sidekick Daxter, you'll have an entire city to explore filled with bustling crowds, anxious police officers, and a fair share of futuristic hover cars to take advantage of. Jak II doesn't scrap its roots entirely, though, because most of its missions take place outside the city in setting...

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (SNES)

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 11, 2006

Though Yoshi's Island is technically the sequel to Super Mario World, it bears almost no resemblance to its predecessor. The game tells the story of the attempted kidnapping of the baby Mario and Luigi. Kamek the Magikoopa, on orders from King Bowser, tries to snatch them from a stork, but only succeeds in taking Luigi. Baby Mario, however, lands on Yoshiís back, and after realising what has happened, all the Yoshies agree to help Mario rescue his brother. The obliging Yoshies take...

Bee 52 (NES)

Bee 52 review (NES)

Reviewed on September 10, 2006

Some things in real life aren't made to be fun, but video games can mold them into something exhilarating, something worth wasting your free time to do. Video games can make you want to farm, or want to take the role of an old fat guy's life. They have transformed really boring aspects of life into something wild and breathtaking, and there are real gems out there. Bee 52 is not one of them.

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (Game Boy Advance)

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 10, 2006

I came into this game as another one of those guys who only knew Fire Emblem because of Marth and Roy from Super Smash Bros Melee. So basically, I didn't really know much about the game other than the fact that it's kinda similar to Advance Wars. After playing through the first few minutes of it, I was completely sucked into the world of Princess Eirika and her comrades.

Sly Spy (Arcade)

Sly Spy review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 10, 2006

There is a glee about Sly Spy, a maniacal urge to so blatantly steal and simultaneously disrespect the source material it pays cynical homage to, the wonderful 007 canon, that makes it a grotesque spectacle, somehow both irritating and intriguing at the same time. Iíve always appreciated poorly made side-scrolling action games that are in obvious replication of the James Bond saga (Iím one of six living fans of the campy and tedious Rolling Thunder), and I couldnít help but ...

Mug Smashers (Arcade)

Mug Smashers review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 08, 2006

Mug Smashers, though devastatingly threatening by name, is more of a womanly slap across the cheek than any truly bruising smash. It isnít as good as Final Fight or Streets of Rage, and certainly doesnít appear to be too worried about it. Itís bad, and surprisingly content with that.

Indigo Prophecy (PlayStation 2)

Indigo Prophecy review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 07, 2006

As one of my closest friends used to say, there are too many identical-looking sequels and too much unoriginality out there in the video game industry. After all, why bother changing the formula if it sells? It is a shame, because we rarely do see fresh, innovative titles nowadays. Bearing this in mind, Quantic Dream knew they were taking a big risk when they started on adventure title Fahrenheit, especially considering that they were experimenting in a genre that was fading away to first...

Lock On (SNES)

Lock On review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 06, 2006

Vic Tokai's Lock-On is a game that'll really get your adrenaline pumping. After all, barreling through waves upon waves of hostile fighters, dodging missiles left to right, and pulling off sick aerial stunts are all in a day's work. Of course, that's not to say it doesn't get old seeing the same palette-swapped polygons zooming around the screen launching rockets at you. Lock-On may be pretty fun from the get-go, but the levels slowly turn repetitious and drab as the game carries o...

Meet Ark, just another mischievous teenager enjoying his easy life in the small town of Crysta. Since the day he was born, his childhood has been limited to the gates of this mysterious village.

MVP Baseball 2005 review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 04, 2006

Americas pastime - baseball. Oh what great memories you bring. Going out to the ballpark with oneís dad, the sensation of catching a foul ball...steroids. Okay, maybe the latter isnít something to reminisce, but who doesnít love a good hot dog and ball game? The MLB has been plagued by recent accusation, but thatís not apparent in a virtual simulation. So why not try out the alternative of MVP Baseball 2005? The game may seem as though itís on performance enhancing drugs, but thatís not the case...

Yanya Caballista City Skater (PlayStation 2)

Yanya Caballista City Skater review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 03, 2006

As dawn approaches San Francisco, the city awakens from its slumber and begins its morning routine. The fog slowly creeps out of the streets and into the bay, revealing countless one-way streets and sprawling neighborhoods. A street-sweeper is churning down an avenue, a bell clangs as a cable car lurches forward, and the smell of baking sourdough bread wafts through the breeze. A lone car travels cross the Golden Gate Bridge, the first of hundreds of thousands of daily commuters. The fishermen h...

Star Fox Command review (DS)

Reviewed on September 03, 2006

Once upon a time, the Star Fox series kicked ass. There was Fox McCloud, flying on a straight and pure course for the salvation of the Lylat solar system. He had a bunch of awesome characters acting as his backup, each with their own personality quirks and memorable lines. This mighty team of anthropomorphic aviators blazed through a wide variety of planets with only one goal in mind: annihilating the evil Andross and restoring peace to outer space. The only thing left in their wake was the char...

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PlayStation 2)

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 01, 2006

Sometimes, reactions of people just surprise the hell out of me. One such instance happened to me a few weeks back, when I took a visit to the GameFAQs "RPG - Everything Else" board. With all the elitism and nitpicking that the regulars do, I should not have been THAT surprised to find classic comments like "Dragon Quest 8 is the most boring RPG to ever come out.", and "It may look pretty, but it's simple as hell and one of the worst games to come out in quite some time." I could not disagree mo...

Yu-Gi-Oh! Nightmare Troubadour review (DS)

Reviewed on August 29, 2006

No matter where you go, you've probably heard the name Yu-Gi-Oh before. You might have seen it on numerous commercials while flipping channels, scanned its name on random ads scattered on the train on the way to work, or your little brother might be begging you to give him some money to buy some cards at the local hobby store. Yu-Gi-Oh has left its mark on the world and everyone knows it. It's everywhere, even on your Nintendo DS with the release of Yu-Gi-Oh: Nightmare Troubadour. Althoug...

Drakengard 2 (PlayStation 2)

Drakengard 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 28, 2006

Despite the fact that Drakengard 2 has progressed a lot, itís a boring experience that lurks in the shadow of the original. The gloomy atmosphere, the doomed and melancholic characters and the path of despair that game led you down were unforgettable. The experience of standing alone and staring an entire army straight in the eye was something that sent shivers down your spine and caused the hair on the back of your neck to stand to attention. The ability to leap into the sky and perch...
