Prey (Xbox 360)

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 youíve heard and read that story plenty of times by now. So a better way to start this review would be, ďPrey is an enjoyable first-person shooter, which leaves some untapped potential on the tableĒ. 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. Yet, unlike the other two games, Prey trie...

Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure (Genesis)

Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 21, 2006

Ever wondered what it would be like if you blended Mario Bros. and Sonic into one game? Well, I'm sure it would be a lot like Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure, assuming you threw in the whole Toon thing in there somewhere. Oh, and don't be turned off by the fact that this is a show-based game, it's made my Konami, and it has "brilliance" written all over it. Well, sometimes, the "brilliance" is covered by a bit of "frustration", but we'll get to that later.

Castle Shikigami 2 (PlayStation 2)

Castle Shikigami 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 21, 2006

2006 is slowly drifting toward its inevitable end. What have we to show for it? Weíve got sky-high gasoline prices, conflicts in the Middle East, a new generation of video game consoles, Snakes on a Plane, and a relatively successful season for the Detroit Tigers. Wow, this year has been a pureed blend of pure awesome and utter lameness. Where are the highly developed AI and the molecular transporters? Isnít there a cure for the common cold yet? And where is my flying car? What happened to the f...

1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen (Arcade)

1943 Kai: Midway Kaisen review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 20, 2006

Ah, Capcom, you gotta love them. Once they release a game and it becomes popular, you can expect them to milk the hell out of that title by releasing "revamped" versions several months later. You've seen them do this with Resident Evil, Devil May Cry 3, and of course, you remember what everyone went through with Street Fighter II. But even before that little known title, Capcom's been doing it to older games. In this case, 1943: The Battle of Midway. A year after tha...

Summon Night: Swordcraft Story (Game Boy Advance)

Summon Night: Swordcraft Story review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 19, 2006

Craftsmanship is one of the few rewarding aspects of our lives. It comes in many forms, be it writing, drawing, solving jigsaw puzzles, furniture design, or just about an other hobby that you can pick up. Despite differences between these various pastimes, they all have one thing in common: the need for skill. The amount of effort you put into your work will reflect in the results; a writer can convey his or her ideas with passionate words, mere sketches can be true works of art, and even the to...

Burnout Revenge (Xbox)

Burnout Revenge review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 18, 2006

Right in front of you a car blocks your way, you slam on the gas, sending it flying. The next rival is only inches away you swerve to get onto there side. Youíre even with him with only one way to get ahead of them. You slam hard into the carís side sending it flying over the cliff. With one racer out of the way you floor it, and pull into victory lane. This is the world of Burnout Revenge. Itís the fourth game in the Burnout series, which is renowned for its satisfying car crashes and amazing s...

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology (PlayStation 2)

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 18, 2006

Do we really need another Street Fighter compilation? Capcom certainly thinks so. After the hunk of detritus that was Capcom Fighting Evolution, you would think that we wouldn't see anymore zombified mishmashes of Street Fighter. Yet the raid in the graveyard continues. This time, we unearth the arcade brethren of the Alpha family - Alpha, Alpha 2, Alpha 2 Gold, Alpha 3 - and Super Gem Fighter. Eh, never mind that last one. Let's just slap ...

Robot Alchemic Drive (PlayStation 2)

Robot Alchemic Drive review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

The movie Godzilla is probably one of the most well known titles of all time. This isn't because of the fact that it was good, or even because the majority of the people who mention it have even seen it. Rather, Godzilla's notoriety stems from the fact that it was so gloriously bad that one couldn't help but be amused. With campy visuals, an oddly realized plot, and a downright off translation, the movie as remained the butt of jokes for over 50 years.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

Be wary. This review assumes you already know the basics of Symphony of the Night. Let this not be your first review. Instead, read another review and, if at all possible, play the game first. Come back afterwards and then read on.

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (PlayStation 2)

Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 17, 2006

Among the desert weeds and radiation of post-apocalyptic California live the last remnants of humanity. Jaded and cynical, they wallow in poverty, their run-down settlements small outposts of civilization in the midst of the all-encompassing nuclear wasteland Ė but underneath the dirt and grime lies a devilish brand of humor and the utter freedom to make whatever you want of yourself and the world. This is the premise of Fallout and Fallout 2, two incredible CRPGs that have enchant...

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.

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.

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.
