The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 17, 2006

We find our young hero sleeping upon a lofty perch, overlooking the sparkling sea. He’s suddenly jarred from his slumber by his younger sister, Aryll. She then reminds him that today is his birthday, and he needs to speak with his grandmother. Once at the house, his grandmother gives Link his birthday present. New clothes? He is then told that the outfit is worn to commemorate the Hero of Time. Now, our hero, donning his new green garments, makes his way back to the island lookout to talk with h...

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun (PlayStation 2)

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 17, 2006

Attempting to do something unique, EA ships its players out to the Pacific to battle the Japanese in Rising Sun. Fighting on Japanese soil is a nice change of pace, but Rising Sun smacks you with brain dead AI, blocky environments, and flat out boring gameplay. Instead of shooting through some of the most intense battles from World War II, you are placed in a peaceful and exotic location to do extremely dull objectives. Rising Sun also fails to deliver a good plot with characters that you care a...

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (PlayStation 2)

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 16, 2006

Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is the cash-in game derived from the final addition to the George Lucas movie series, which uses the story and characters from the movie in an action-adventure setting. It’s disappointing to find out that the quality of recent Star Wars games, like Battlefront II and the Knights of the Old Republic series, don’t come with the name, causing Revenge of the Sith to be a brutal experience. At its core, it’s nothing but a bland, mindless, and pointless butt...

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology (PlayStation 2)

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 16, 2006

Once upon a time, Street Fighter II dominated the gaming world. If you had any interest in the fighting genre during the last decade, this legendary brawler had the power to grab your attention, keep your eyes glued to the screen, and play an untold amount of hours against friends and computer-controlled enemies alike. There were tournaments to win, characters to master, and plenty of other in-game aspects that made this fighter pure bliss. However, Street Fighter II couldn’t hold ...

Tomb Raider: Legend (PlayStation 2)

Tomb Raider: Legend review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 15, 2006

After Angel of Darkness disappointed thousands of Tomb Raider fans with its clunky controls and uninspired action, most did not know what to think when Legend was announced. The earlier Tomb Raider games were so exciting and adventurous, that their sequels seemed to fall into a shadow. After Tomb Raider III and Angel of Darkness, the series began to lose the popularity and fan base that it once possessed. However, Legend attempts to revive the series by bringing back the fresh and entertaining g...

Paper Mario (Nintendo 64)

Paper Mario review (N64)

Reviewed on July 14, 2006

In a time where many role-playing games employ the conventional menu-driven battle system, you can always trust Mario to bring something new to the table. After numerous wacky sports and party titles, he livens up yet another derivative genre.

Armored Core: Last Raven (PlayStation 2)

Armored Core: Last Raven review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 14, 2006

I've been a fan of the Armored Core series since the first instalment, thrilled as I was with the concept of building an entirely unique battle robot and blowing things up with it. Yet, sadly perhaps, Armored Core has somehow strayed from what made the original great. It has become, some fans feel, bogged down with complexity, particularly in Nexus, one of the previous titles. Nexus had focused on making a realistic mech game to the expense, felt some, of a fun mech game. Ninebreaker came...

Shadow of the Colossus (PlayStation 2)

Shadow of the Colossus review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 13, 2006

With the release of ICO in 2001, a hidden gem emerged out of nowhere. With the game mainly consisting of escorting a young lady around with various puzzles and little combat, the word that may come to the mind of some is “boring.” But this is not true. It was a truly original concept, and it showed that not everything needs to be about blowing away enemies in first person shooters or managing an army in strategy games. This has been carried over to Shadow of the Colossus, with many characteristi...

Indigo Prophecy (Xbox)

Indigo Prophecy review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 13, 2006

Every year many games come out that are great, but don’t really bring anything new to the table. They may do many things right, but they’re missing something: innovation. With Indigo Prophecy, that is not the case. With highly original concepts that are executed very well, and a game that puts its story and characters above everything else, developer Quantic Dream has succeeded in making a game that sets itself apart from any other one out there. It may not be perfect, but it’s something that sh...

F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon (PC)

F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon review (PC)

Reviewed on July 13, 2006

Through the years, there have been all kinds of first person shooters released. There's the usual formula of a good combination of guns with some fast-paced action, and so on. But with F.E.A.R, Sierra has created something new. It's combined the aspects of a Japanese horror film with exciting and frantic action to create one of the best FPSs out there.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game review (NES)

Reviewed on July 13, 2006

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game is a sequel to an NES platformer called...Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (shocker.) While some people may have warm fuzzy feelings of nostalgia when thinking of the original TMNT, I'll be honest with you: I hate it. Too many cheap challenges, awkward controls, too many cheap challenges, too many cheap challenges...let's just say that the game is a bit frustrating.

Freelancer (PC)

Freelancer review (PC)

Reviewed on July 10, 2006

Every modern gamer knows the story of the Xbox (and later PC) role-playing game, Fable. It was supposed to be one of the largest and most ambitious games ever released, but turned out to be a short and limiting RPG that paled in comparison to its contemporaries, namely Bioware’s KOTOR. Due to the genre’s mainstream obscurity, most gamers haven’t heard of Freelancer, which was first announced roughly five years prior to its release in 2002 (and was in development for much lon...

The Legend of Dragoon (PlayStation)

The Legend of Dragoon review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2006

When Legend of Dragoon made its way onto the PSX RPG scene, Sony foolishly billed it as a Final Fantasy killer. Gathered together in angered hoards, FF fanatics lit their burning torches and waddled aggressively through the streets, rioting and looting Cheeto stores nation-wide. "This is no Final Fantasy!" some cried while others sobbed over their Sephiroth plushies; it was a dark day, but somewhere behind all the rantings and unbridled hate, a game somehow got forgotten.

The Hobbit (PlayStation 2)

The Hobbit review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2006

Bilbo Baggins, as many of us know, is a typical hobbit. He’s portly, laid-back, and perfectly content with never leaving Hobbiton. However, due to his recruitment by a wise wizard and a bunch of dwarves, Bilbo sets out on a quest where he encounters some awkward camera angles, many boring stages, and a final couple levels that hint at what could have been a much better game. So much for the epic journey I expected.

Guitar Hero (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 08, 2006

The life of a rock star: full of money, alcohol, and all out partying. Guitar Hero may not be able to provide the fun of passing out drunk on the floor, but it certainly captures the feel of rock in a video game. With all kinds of musical tracks and one of the coolest gaming peripherals, Guitar Hero makes you feel like you’re on that stage, with thousands of screaming fans going crazy. Well, as long as you don’t look at yourself in the mirror. Anyone who is willing to fork over the extra $20 wil...

Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube)

Super Mario Sunshine review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 08, 2006

It took six years to come up with a sequel to Mario 64. Six years. You'd think that would be enough time to make sure they'd get it right. After all, this is the latest in Nintendo's largest and arguably most important franchise, so it certainly deserves special devotion. How, then, can we explain what happened here? How did Nintendo possibly come up with a game that is so, well, forgettable? I mean, I'm not really a fan of Mario 64. I think the concept was excellent, but the execution a ...

Dead Connection (Arcade)

Dead Connection review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 06, 2006

Don Nerozzia knows the rules. When a man stands in your way, you bribe him, blackmail him, or influence those around him to neutralize the threat. If he’s unimpeachable, then maybe, just maybe, you reward him with a bullet to the back of the head. You certainly don’t gun down his lady in the street and expect him to slink away. Especially not with Philip, the leader of men making a stand against a gigantic crime. Yes, Nerozzia knows the rules; he just chose to ignore them. So now th...

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 06, 2006

At a glance, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness looks like your standard strategy RPG: turn-based battles on a grid, a variety of weapons and classes, a small amount of customization. But from the first time you meet the main character, you know that you’re in for a very unusual trip.

Armored Core: Nexus (PlayStation 2)

Armored Core: Nexus review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 06, 2006

The Armored Core series has come a long way in the eleven(!!) years since the first title’s release. Yet, in some ways it’s remained the same. The first game’s strongest selling point was customization. Here’s a few hundred parts; buy the core, head, arms, legs, boosters, generator, FCS computer, and weapon systems you like best and put them all together. I can still recall my amazement when I rented Armored Core for my PlayStation, daunted by the seemingly endless combinations of mechs.
