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 (DS)

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.

Planescape: Torment (PC)

Planescape: Torment review (PC)

Reviewed on August 10, 2006

Sigil is the City of Doors. It lies at the nexus of the multiverse; its portals touch countless worlds, and those with the correct keys can reach anywhere from Sigil. To the rest, itís a prison. It floats above the infinitely tall Spire in the center of the Outlands, a neutral zone between the Outer Planes of good and evil, law and chaos. Itís indifferent to outside conflicts, its impartiality guarded by the Lady of Pain, an enigmatic sorceress who wears a bladed mask.

AstroPop (Xbox 360)

AstroPop review (X360)

Reviewed on August 10, 2006

AstroPop is a puzzle game for Xbox Live Arcade that combines block busting, combos, bricks, and SUPA rays. Its hectic pace and points scores make it addictive, and cause you to not notice the time slipping by. AstroPop is constantly making you navigate quickly and work rapidly. Itís a great single-player puzzle game, but its lack of multiplayer takes away a lot from the experience.

Metal Saga (PlayStation 2)

Metal Saga review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 10, 2006

Humanity. Like cockroaches, they continue to scrape out what meager existence they can in the post-apocalyptic world wrought by the hands of NOAH, the obligatory evil super-computer. Initially an artificial intelligence created in order to prevent war and the like from ravaging the land, NOAH was given a little too much freedom of choice. In order to cease war and end all hostilities, it would eradicate the source of all conflict: the entirety of the human race! Through hazy and unexplai...

Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting (Xbox 360)

Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting review (X360)

Reviewed on August 09, 2006

Hyper Fighting is a ballbuster. It's cheap, relentless, and annoyingly obsessed with cheesing you to death with its flawless timing and flaw-exploiting tactics. In short, I finally hate a version of Street Fighter II.

Space Empires IV (PC)

Space Empires IV review (PC)

Reviewed on August 09, 2006

If you're the type of person who would look at a title like "Space Empires IV" and think, "O GAWD how lame! I'm not playing THAT!", then you, sir, are missing out. If you are, then you might also be the type of person who would look at a review like "Don't judge a book by its cover" and think "O GAWD how lame! I'm not reading THAT!", and...oh. Nuts.

ICO (PlayStation 2)

ICO review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 09, 2006

Forbidding battlements rise above a stark ravine. The stillness of the surrounding forest is broken by the sound of approaching hooves. A group of horsemen appears, masked and silent, carrying with them a struggling young boy. His wrists are bound and two curved horns jut from his head. Wordlessly, the horsemen enter the fortress. They bring the boy to a cavernous hall lined with stone sarcophagi. One casket opens and the boy is placed inside. There is the sound of receding footsteps and then h...

Culdcept (PlayStation 2)

Culdcept review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 09, 2006

Culdcept is an unlikely hybrid of genres; it combines the battle system of a collectible card game with the mechanics of a board game and even throws in a bit of role-playing. An eccentric concept, surely, but Culdcept pulls it off with a quirky charm and surprising originality. The premise of the game is familiar territory for those familiar with traditional RPGs: the goddess Culdra rules the world through a book of spells, Culdcept. Cepters are those mortals with the power to summon monsters ...

As the sun sets over Metro City, the citizens of the urban wasteland face another night of crime, corruption, and despair. Mad Gear, a powerful street gang with political influence and unparalleled resources, continues to tighten its chokehold on the city. Their dominance was a direct result of the old mayorís limitless greed and utter lack of cojones. But now thereís a new mayor in town, the kind of well-meaning and honest type of person that Mad Gear canít stand. In order to get the new offici...

Need for Speed: Underground review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 08, 2006

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 and Porsche Unleashed had you speeding through peaceful European villages in exotic cars. However, after the movie ďThe Fast and the FuriousĒ was released, EA decided to move the series into new territory. In Underground, you put the pedal to the metal in cheap import cars to prove your skill on the dark city streets. Thereís a vast amount of modifications for every vehicle, which ensures that no two cars are alike in the fabulous online play. In addition, each ...

Burnout 3: Takedown review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 05, 2006

In the world of Burnout 3, people cringe at the thought of using car insurance. Imagine a virtual reality where speeding doesnít get you a ticket and crashing your car is a goal. This is Burnout 3: Takedown. In a market of street racers and driving simulations, Burnout 3 stands out among the crowd. Through fusing different types of game modes, it finds that middle ground, providing a breath of fresh air. Thereís no complicated customization or tuning to worry about, just driving wildly.

New Super Mario Bros. review (DS)

Reviewed on August 04, 2006

Everyoneís favorite hero, Mario, returns to his plumbing roots in New Super Mario Bros, essentially a more detailed look at the 1985 classic, Super Mario Bros. Despite being showcased in Super Mario Strikers and Mario Baseball, NSMB shows that Mario still can be the perfect piece in an excellent side scrolling adventure, and it brings a simple control scheme that allows for crazy level design. The plot and some of the environments from Super Mario Bros are re-used, but the game is significantly ...
