Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PlayStation 2)

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

After a long absence, Enix's Dragon Quest series returns to the US in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. This time around, the story begins with a small group of strange travelers camped out in the woods. Leading the motley group is the Hero, a retainer from the ruined Trodain castle seeking to restore it to its former glory. Heís joined by a bandit named Yangus, who follows him around like a puppy, The Heroís liege King Trode, and Trodeís beautiful daughter Medea. Well, she would be...

Kingdom Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

It's rare that a game comes along that reminds you of the best moments in your childhood and yet is still fun enough to keep you interested beyond mere nostalgia. Kingdom Hearts does just that through solid action-RPG gameplay which balances the timeless history of Disney with the unequaled gaming pedigree of Square. In this tale, you play the role of Sora, a young boy who lives on a small island and dreams of exploring the world beyond with his two best friends, Riku and Kairi. He has been havi...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords (Xbox)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 02, 2006

The original Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic was a landmark RPG for the Xbox and a homerun in pretty much every way possible. KOTOR applied Bioware's proven RPG chops to the exciting mythos of the "galaxy far, far away" and gave the rabid Star Wars fan base a game that was worthy of the franchise's name. It certainly wasnít surprising that LucasArts would want to capitalize on that success by releasing a sequel quickly. A scant one year after KOTOR hit shelves, fledgling studio Obsidian E...

Doom (SNES)

Doom review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 30, 2006

A game with a ďfirst personĀEpoint of view. As a 14 year old console gamer who had never owned a PC, the idea didn't even make sense to me. How did you move around? Still, something about the screens featured in my favorite gaming magazine haunted me during the weeks leading up to my 15th birthday, and as I stood in the store isle with my planned purchase (Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) in one hand and the SNES version of the enigmatic Doom in the other, I made a last-minute choice that would change ...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 30, 2006

Dealing with a special edition of a game is tricky business. Chances are, youíve got the original version, played through it a fair share of times, and thought it was the best damn thing since sliced bread. But when that newer version comes out, youíre left with a choice: buying it because you enjoyed the original so much, or ignore it because of the gaming companyís blatant attempt to get more cash out of your wallet. Either choice poses a risk; should you shell out the extra money, you may fin...

Tekken 4 (PlayStation 2)

Tekken 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 28, 2006

Tekken. Itís arguably the greatest 3D fighting game series ever conceived. After years of fame and popularity in the arcades and on the Playstation, the franchise was finally ready to make that big leap onto the PS2 in hopes of maintaining its iron grip on the fighting genre. After the incredibly successful debut of Tekken Tag Tournament on the new console, the future of Tekken looked pretty brightÖuntil the previews for Tekken 4 started showing up. As the main series took its firs...

EVE Online: The Second Genesis review (PC)

Reviewed on July 27, 2006

Imagine a sprawling universe at your fingertips: thousands of space stations ringing thousands of stars that await your presence. Beyond that, imagine that enterprising people with the necessary materials and know-how would be able to colonize, police, and otherwise run entire sectors of space, completely free of influence by outside forces. A refreshing sci-fi setting makes for an attractive alternative to any of the dime-a-dozen sword and sorcery MMOs out there. Furthering this strong sense of...

Capcom Fighting Evolution (PlayStation 2)

Capcom Fighting Evolution review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 27, 2006

Instead of trying to update or reinvent any of its fighting franchises, Capcom continues to inflame the cross-over fighting madness with Capcom Fighting Evolution. The question of whether Ryu is stronger than some other generic 2D fighter has probably crossed your mind, but this game will make your brain bleed from its skull-bludgeoning lack of execution. Though Capc...

Fiery portals to hell, evil demons, dark princes, oh my Alright, now that I have your attention, itís time for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Bethesda hit a home run in 2002 with Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. It offered this huge adventure, giving you total freedom in a gorgeous fantasy land. Fans were eagerly anticipating the next installment in the series, but after three years people were getting a little impatient. Four years later Oblivion has arrived, and it was well worth the wait.

NCAA Football 07 (PlayStation 2)

NCAA Football 07 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 25, 2006

Once in a while, a game comes around that totally redefines video gaming forever. Personally, I have experienced this with a few titles, most notably Super Mario Brothers 3 and Final Fantasy 7. NCAA Football 2004 was the last game to do this for me, as the game was simply phenomenal and one of the most addicting games ever. Then, NCAA Football 2005 came around and disappointed many, including myself, with its focus on defense being the major flaw. NCAA Football 06 tried to fix the flaws, and suc...

Pocket Fighter review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 23, 2006

It finally happened. After years of selling Street Fighter II, slightly modifying it half a dozen times, re-releasing it onto various consoles, creating a prequel trilogy, three versions of a sequel, crappy movies, cartoons, action figures, and dominating the 2D fighting genre, the beloved Street Fighter series franchise jumped the shark. Of course, Capcom wasnít ready to part with one of their most lucrative series just yet. They needed something different, something that not only captur...

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 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 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...

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...
