The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

No matter how many I save, how many I defeat, the question is never far behind. Is this a burden that all heroes carry, bound before the path? Every step I take, grasping for the earth, brings me closer to death. But even as I lay beneath the silence of night, when all that trembles is doubt, music comes to soothe my soul. As my weary hand finds the ocarina, I hear the melody on my fingertips. The sound of the sky, of the rivers and fields, echoes each sweeping note. Restless in its wake, the sw...

Doom 3 (Xbox)

Doom 3 review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

After a lengthy seven year wait, the sixth game in the long running Doom series has arrived. Id Software, Vicarious Visions, and Activision took a long time with Doom 3, but thankfully the quality of the gameplay, scary atmosphere, and gorgeous graphics are worth the wait. Despite some boring multiplayer and lack of originality, Doom 3 still delivers a stellar and horror-filled experience. And like in all the other Doom games, you’ll have to fight off thousands of Hell beings. Despite the fact y...

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (PC)

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines review (PC)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

When I loaded up Vampires: Bloodlines, I felt that I was going to be disappointed. Troika Games was on the verge of folding, reviews talked about the bugginess of the game, and I was afraid it was going to be a Diablo type affair like the first Vampire: Redemption. I have to say that I was wrong on all aspects and was pleseantly surprised by all that this game does right.

Half-Life (PC)

Half-Life review (PC)

Reviewed on August 27, 2006

The intro sequence is the part that endures, obviously; the commute into the creaking heart of the Black Mesa Research Facility will never quite lose its majesty. Once the soundscape oozes in and your eyes open, your tramcar winds its way down through the massive complex, sweeping you through a foreseeable world in which technology is definitely awe-inspiring, but far from reliable and farther from invasive. Incredible multi-articulated robots repair busted-up chemical vats. Steel airlocks and e...

Battalion Wars (GameCube)

Battalion Wars review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 26, 2006

Battalion Wars was originally introduced under a different name as a spin-off of the GameBoy Advance's stellar Advance Wars series. It strays from its handheld roots, foregoing the tried-and-true, turn-based gameplay in favor of an action-shooter/real-time strategy hybrid. As a concept, this works pretty well, especially in the context of Advance Wars. In practice, the resulting gameplay is completely wrecked.

1944: The Loop Master (Arcade)

1944: The Loop Master review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 26, 2006

For the sixth installment in the 1942 series, Capcom decided to do something different: they let another developer make the game. Now this could've been disastrous, because the game could've been something completely different in the sense that "they just didn't get it". Or, it could've just sucked. Fortunately, the complete opposite happened, because they got Eighting/Raizing, and what you end up getting is the most intense, enjoyable "19" game to date.

Dead Rising (Xbox 360)

Dead Rising review (X360)

Reviewed on August 25, 2006

When I first heard of Dead Rising I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Now that I’ve had a chance to spend some time with the game I’m only slightly disappointed. The game drops you into the shoes of Frank West, a photojournalist looking for his big scoop. He gets more than he bargains for when he’s dropped off at the local mall where a zombie outbreak has occurred. From that point he has 72 hours (not actual game time) to get his story.

Tony Hawk American Sk8land (DS)

Tony Hawk American Sk8land review (DS)

Reviewed on August 25, 2006

Are you obsessed with Hollywood and it's supposed movie-star lifestyle? Do you skateboard? Does the phrase "California Uber Alles" make you happy? How about "Deutschland Uber Alles"? If you answered yes to all of these questions, then you're most certainly looking at the right game. However if you find liberal conspiracy music about California being fascist disheartening in a Skateboarding game, perhaps THAS is too much for you.

Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs' Big Break (Game Boy)

Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs' Big Break review (GB)

Reviewed on August 25, 2006

Pop quiz: Your best friend, a pink rabbit named Babs, has just been struck by a few stars. She’s somehow gotten into her mind that she’s destined for the high life; swimming pools, paparazzi, movies stars in fast cars. Babs is a triple non-threat: She can’t sing, she can’t dance, she can’t act. So she’s in for a big letdown, most definitely. Nonetheless, she’s Hollywood-bound.

Ken Griffey Jr Presents: Major League Baseball (SNES)

Ken Griffey Jr Presents: Major League Baseball review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

Perhaps more than any other video game, Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball is firmly entrenched in a part of my mind from which it cannot be uprooted, forever connected to a reality that is experienced by most boys in childhood – one that involves baseball and summer days that arrived and parted too quickly. For this reason, I am not merely biased; I am so maniacally obsessed with Griffey, so overexposed to its elements from years of play, that, to me, it really has los...

19XX: The War Against Destiny (Arcade)

19XX: The War Against Destiny review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

19XX: The War Against Destiny is a good shoot-em-up. It does a nice job at keeping you on your toes throughout its six stages with the amount of candy-coated bullets that gets thrown your way. However, when compared to the game it followed up, 1941, you get this overwhelming feeling that 19XX took a step backwards. After that highly enjoyable game, this title seems to pale in comparison as it doesn't actually have many significant upgrades or differences that make it stand o...

LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game (Xbox)

LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

Lego Star Wars brings two great franchises together in an easy-going platformer based on the first three episodes in the Star Wars universe. Despite there being no dialogue, the movies are summarized effectively and you easily learn what happens in each tale. In the escapade you’ll get to play as virtually every Star Wars character, and because it targets kids it’s pretty easy to beat. It uses colorful environments and enjoyable gameplay, so that fans of either license will find a great game.

Brave Fencer Musashi (PlayStation)

Brave Fencer Musashi review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 24, 2006

Brave Fencer Musashi is a treasure trove of delightful oddities. First, there’s the amusing food obsession with locales such as Grillin’ Village and characters named Princess Fillet and Ginger Elle. Next, there’s the pint-sized hero, Musashi, a pre-teen samurai with a very high opinion of himself. Factor in other odd things, such as collectible action figures and the presence of Vambees (half-vampires, half-zombies), and you have the makings for an interesting ride. Combined with the e...

Psychonauts review (PC)

Reviewed on August 23, 2006

You find yourself standing on a road that twists in and around itself like a giant knot. An endless void surrounds this demented neighborhood, whose people have the composure and attire to suggest they are secret agents. Their constant uttering of phrases lacking any intellectual value leaves you wondering what kind of sick person's imagination you could be in and how you could possibly fix it. After whipping out a trusty piece of bacon, an old man's head pops out of your right ear and reminds y...

1941: Counter Attack (Arcade)

1941: Counter Attack review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 22, 2006

1941: Counter Attack had a lot to prove following up its predecessor. While 1943 Kai wasn't a GREAT game, it did do a lot for the series back when it originally came out: a better, yet, still hard gameplay experience, souped-up weapons, a decent stage count, and other nice additions. So, when I began the first stage of 1941, I wasn't that impressed. It basically started out like any other game in the series. With the P-38 at my controls (second player gets a Mosquito, I thin...

SiN Episodes: Emergence review (PC)

Reviewed on August 22, 2006

One of the things that bugged me about Half-Life 2: Episode One, the only other current attempt at delivering a game in episodes rather than a single installment, was that the game didn’t end. Let me clarify that. Half-Life 2: Episode One left a lot of questions unanswered. I felt like the developers were just teasing players with a throw-away ending, expecting you to pay for the next two installments of the series if you want real clarity. I expected some suspense.

Prey review (X360)

Reviewed on August 21, 2006

This review could be start by telling you that Prey was originally shown at E3 95. But you’ve heard and read that story plenty of times by now. So a better way to start this review would be, “Prey is an enjoyable first-person shooter, which leaves some untapped potential on the table”. So, Prey is an enjoyable first-person shooter, which leaves some untapped potential on the table. Prey runs on the same engine as Doom 3 and Quake IV, so it looks pretty.
