NFL Head Coach (PC)

NFL Head Coach review (PC)

Reviewed on July 22, 2006

My first year coaching the Oakland Raiders was definitely a successful one. I crushed the teamís goal of finishing with an 8-8 record not only by going 11-5, but by making it to the wildcard and greatly improving the teamís running game (and placed fifth in the league in rushing yards). I donít know if I was due to my outstanding work ethics or my unmatched play-calling ability, but this success earned me several lucrative coaching offers from practically every team, as well as comparisons to th...

U.N. Squadron (SNES)

U.N. Squadron review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 22, 2006

U.N. Squadron is a phenomenal shooter, bearing very impressive visuals and challenging gameplay (with emphasis on challenging). Though there are some very specific battle flaws (if flaws is the proper word in this case) that'll surely frustrate many a player, the good manages to greatly outweigh the bad, leaving U.N. Squadron with a tremendously positive mark.

Kid Icarus (NES)

Kid Icarus review (NES)

Reviewed on July 21, 2006

Kid Icarus was released on the same day as another Nintendo game: Metroid. The big selling point for both games was that they were "Password Paks"--that is to say, a password could be input at the start of the game so you didn't have to go through everything all over again after turning the system off. The two games have many other similarities: they use the same engine, the same team developed both games, their level designs are highly similar, they utilize the same concept of upgrading your ch...

Guardian Heroes (Saturn)

Guardian Heroes review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 21, 2006

It is a sad fact that time renders many once-excellent games virtually unplayable, as games superior in both gameplay and technical prowess replace them. Sometimes a game can last for awhile before being replaced while a game may last only a year or two before losing its luster yet with a few exceptions, most games donít carry their same superiority over a decade. This brings us to the game of this review, Guardian Heroes, which is entering its 10th year since its first release for the doomed Se...

Star Ocean: The Second Story review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 21, 2006

The first time I played Star Ocean: The Second Story, I was duly impressed by the large number of spaceships (I quite like them) in the title screen cinematic. Intrigued, I started a game.

Grandia III (PlayStation 2)

Grandia III review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 20, 2006

A sense of serenity permeates the night air, blinking lights lining the makeshift runway providing a fitting opposite to the sea of stars above. A blue-haired boy, Yuki, is sitting at the controls of what looks like a boat with wings, and his companion makes sure everything is in working order. The final checks are completed, and soon the engine of the odd boat-plane roars to life. With a slight lurch it starts forward, picking up speed on the downward slope of the runway until it jumps graceful...

Gunstar Super Heroes (Game Boy Advance)

Gunstar Super Heroes review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 18, 2006

Gunstar Heroes. At this point, simply mentioning the name brings gamers to their knees, much in the same way a former quadriplegic does when Pastor Benny Hinn slaps them in the face. Treasure crammed as much awesome as they could for the little Genesis game that tried.

We find our young hero sleeping upon a lofty perch, overlooking the sparkling sea. Heís 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?

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. Itís disappointing to find out that the quality of recent Star Wars games, like Battlefront II and the Knights of the Old Republic series, donít come with the name, causing Revenge of the Sith to be a brutal experience. At its core, itís 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 couldnít hold ...

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 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 ďboring.Ē 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 review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 13, 2006

Every year many games come out that are great, but donít really bring anything new to the table. They may do many things right, but theyíre 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 itís 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 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.
