Illusion of Gaia (SNES)

Illusion of Gaia review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

Enix/Quintet's Illusion of Gaia is an action/RPG which aspires for philosophical greatness yet only achieves base mediocrity.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

The concept of Phoenix Wright is simple: you are a lawyer. Or, to be more specific, a defense attorney. Your job is to save your client from conviction--they're always innocent of the crime--and invariably find the real perpetrator, who is always caught during their own testimonies declaring the defendant's guilt. The game becomes predictable in a hurry. But it's entertaining, it has some inspired moments, and there's no other game quite like it. Until Phoenix Wright 2 is released, that is.

1943: The Battle of Midway (Arcade)

1943: The Battle of Midway review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

1942 sucked. A lot. Piloting a P-38 through thirty-two stages of the same exact crap is not my idea of a good time. So, I wasn't really going into 1943: The Battle of Midway with high hopes. I read that it has quite a few upgrades that make it better than its predecessor, so I was willing to give the game a shot.

Prey (Xbox 360)

Prey review (X360)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

Prey was supposed to be a monster of an FPS that was going to rock our socks off. It was going to be a huge FPS. It was going to do for gravity what Half-Life 2 did for physics. Prey was an early contender for a dozen magazines and websites game of the year. Now, the game has been released and there are a bunch of reviews out there for it. It didnít get the gleaming reviews that it was supposed to, but every review score is still too high. Itís almost like the reviewers were...

Bob the Builder: Fix It Fun! (Game Boy Color)

Bob the Builder: Fix It Fun! review (GBC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

Before picking up some games, you know that it's going to be bad. I thought that Bob the Builder: Fix It Fun was going to be a boring children's game that entertained kids in a way that older folks won't understand. But instead, I was smacked across the face with something so vile that insulted the minds of children and left a scar in my brain.

Wild Arms 4 (PlayStation 2)

Wild Arms 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

Wild ARMs 4 is the latest entry in the Wild West RPG series, though you'd never know it from all of the changes that were made. Though a few new gameplay elements have been added to the mix, WA4 fits solidly in the console turn-based RPG genre. You control a small, rag-tag group of youngsters that takes on a horde of monstrous enemies. Each character specializes in a different area, like fighting, magic, or support skills. As you beat enemies, you level up your power, gain new abilities, get mor...

1942 (Arcade)

1942 review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 16, 2006

I've played 1942 a couple of times before, and each of those times, I didn't really get into the game. With a grand total of thirty-two stages, I just didn't have the time. But I was willing to give the game another shot when I decided to do a review for it. I made sure I had plenty of time to waste, so I can attempt to make it through the entire title.

Project: Snowblind (PC)

Project: Snowblind review (PC)

Reviewed on August 15, 2006

Whenever I get the urge to write a bunch of reviews, I always want write a review for Project Snowblind, but for some reason, I haven't been able to. Even though it has been over a year since I first played through Project Snowblind, Iíve never been able to put my thoughts onto the paper. Usually, when I really like a game, like I did Project Snowblind, itís very easy for me to write my review. But, this game has me stumped. As much as I loved it, writing down what I love an...

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie (Xbox)

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 15, 2006

Peter Jacksonís King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie is a ridiculously long winded title, but itís much better then virtually every movie-based game. Developed by the team behind Rayman, King Kong is a single-player adventure that packs a punch. Yet, simple gameplay, gorgeous graphics, and playing as Kong make up for its faults, and it represents what movie-based games can be.

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 14, 2006

Iím sick of people praising Final Fantasy VII as the quintessential, ultimate RPG. Sure, itís great and all, but seriously this game was easier than my roommate (and take my word for it - she is the loosest gal youíll ever meet). It lives up to the quality and craftsmanship weíve come to trust Square will deliver in every title, but it doesnít even take a trained chip to plow through this adventure.

Turok: Evolution (PlayStation 2)

Turok: Evolution review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 14, 2006

From the start of Turok: Evolution, youíll know youíre playing something that feels completely uninspired. The main character is a Native American whose tribe has been brutalized at the hands of evil soldiers. Through bizarre, video-game-only circumstances, heís been transported to an ancient land where dinosaurs still roam the hills and evil alligator-looking bipeds run around with guns. This land is desperately in need of a hero. You first take control of this alternate-universe tourist...

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on August 13, 2006

The year is 1985, the Nintendo Entertainment System has just launched on North American Shores, and with it Mario becomes the most popular videogame hero. When the game first came out I wasnít born yet, so I didnít get to experience the adventure until 1995. Thankfully, it was worth the wait Super Mario Brothers is one of the best games ever made.

Uno (Xbox 360)

Uno review (X360)

Reviewed on August 13, 2006

It seems that as I age, my fingers become more restless and a bit slow, thus making games a wonderful hell of frustration and agony. It doesnít matter how big that hole in my wall from my controller is, aggravation overwhelms me. Lucky for me, UNO always allays my troublesome game experiences.

NFL Blitz (Nintendo 64)

NFL Blitz review (N64)

Reviewed on August 13, 2006

Tired of slower-paced, graphically-accurate football games like Madden? Want to play the sport and have a bit more fun with it also? This is Blitz, where you don't have to know a thing about the game of football, hell, you could even hate the sport, and you could still have serious fun. It takes the real deal, then removes all the penalties and rules that slow it down. Plus it adds huge muscles, attitude, and then speeds everything up twofold.

Painkiller: Hell Wars (Xbox)

Painkiller: Hell Wars review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 12, 2006

Painkiller: Hell Wars bothers me. It bothers me because itís not a good game. It isnít. A lot of people will tell you that itís great, but it isnít. Painkiller: Hell Wars casts you as Daniel Garner, a man sent to purgatory after a car accident. He then becomes an exterminator of hellís worst demons and thatís the last of the story. This is a straight-forward, run into an area, blast all the cannon-fodder enemies that pop up in front of you, and then run through the next door and do the same thin...

Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)

Shadow of the Colossus review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 12, 2006

For days, your faithful horse has endured the burden of carrying both you and the figure of a lifeless young lady into a land where man is forbidden to enter. With the arduous trek finally behind, in view is a remote, age-worn temple. After laying the body down on the altar inside, a deep voice bellows out in response to your demand to resurrect her: slay sixteen colossi in exchange for her life. You set out for the first, not quite knowing how to vanquish these beasts with only your horse, swor...

Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

The words "education" and "entertainment" usually don't belong together. So when we call Oregon Trail, Reading Rabbit, and Math Blaster "edutainment" software, heads start to turn; even more so for Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day!, since (besides the long name) it targets more than children. Brain Age dreams of DS lovers walking down the street playing mental exercises that supposedly improve your practical intelligence. Supervisor and prominent Ja...

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise (NES)

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise review (NES)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

There are some games where the beginning of the game is really awful, but then later on the story gets whipped into shape or you get used to slightly sloppy controls and see that other aspects of the game aren't so bad. Very rarely will you see a game like this that is just so many synonyms of bad from the beginning until the end, or however far you can get.

Feel the Magic: XY/XX (DS)

Feel the Magic: XY/XX review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

Sometimes, I feel that launch games are just there to test a machine's capabilities and how the public will react to it. I feel that these games are somewhat entertaining, but not "complete". There's a missing element in some of these launch games that makes them feel more like a test than a game that's meant to keep you entertained for a long time. This is how I felt about Feel the Magic.

Metroid Prime Pinball (DS)

Metroid Prime Pinball review (DS)

Reviewed on August 11, 2006

What sounds more insipid than a primitive pinball machine that creaks and groans, tantalizing you with its boringly enticing gameplay, simplistic concept, dry display and generally dull premise? Nothing, of course. But that doesnít mean that a pinball game centered on the lively worlds of Metroid Prime canít be a freaking riot to play.
