The Hobbit (PlayStation 2)

The Hobbit review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2006

Bilbo Baggins, as many of us know, is a typical hobbit. Heís 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 youíre on that stage, with thousands of screaming fans going crazy. Well, as long as you donít 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 heís unimpeachable, then maybe, just maybe, you reward him with a bullet to the back of the head. You certainly donít 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 (PlayStation 2)

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 youíre 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 titleís release. Yet, in some ways itís remained the same. The first gameís strongest selling point was customization. Hereís 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.

Battle Stations (Saturn)

Battle Stations review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 06, 2006

Battlestations could've been a good game..... I don't like saying that a lot since you can basically apply that to any crappy game. But it's true in BS's case. A title where you take control of your own fleet (ranging from patrol boats and mine layers to battleships and aircraft carriers), set sail on the seas, and kick the crap out of any opposing fleet that dares cross your path? Sounds like a kickass game to me. Unfortunately....

God of War (PlayStation 2)

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 06, 2006

There are two things that are good about this game. Sadly, they are the two things that are good about every ďgoodĒ game. Usually, these two things make up the bulk a review but I didnít write this review intending to tell you that this is a fun game and is looks good, blah, blah, woof, woof. In the grander scheme of video-game things, God of War is a big failure. It makes all the same mistakes concerning content that every other high-ranked game does. Itís offensive, itís hyper-masculine, it m...

Tecmo NBA Basketball (NES)

Tecmo NBA Basketball review (NES)

Reviewed on July 04, 2006

Tecmo NBA Basketball hit stores not long after the 1991 smash debut of Tecmo Super Bowl, a game that succeeded because it stood as the most accurate NES representation of its sport. In terms of presentation and options, these releases exist as equals, but the newer of the two lacks an essential sports game characteristic. Even when mastered, TSB thrived because every down presented an uncertain challenge, be it navigating a broken blocking scheme or reading the oppon...

Call of Duty 2 (PC)

Call of Duty 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 01, 2006

I absolutely loved the original Call of Duty, so I had incredibly high hopes for Call of Duty 2. As soon as the first screenshots came out for it, I instantly proclaimed that the game was going to be awesome and started talking non-stop about it. Iím not usually excited about too many games, but I had a lot of expectations for Call of Duty 2, which Iím sure you got from my first two sentences. Now youíre left wondering if the game lived up to my expectations.

Gradius II: Gofer no Yabou (NES)

Gradius II: Gofer no Yabou review (NES)

Reviewed on July 01, 2006

There are certain games for which one must wonder the usefulness of a review. Gradius II is one such game. Being an average-at-best Japan-only release from 1989, it is highly unlikely that any casual gamer will read this review and decide "Hey, I really want to play that game!" Conversely, if you're a big fan of the other Gradius games (or shooters in general), chances are very good that you've already played Gradius II. If you're not, then the odds are high that you won't be reading this. Gradi...

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on June 30, 2006

Without a doubt, Castlevania is an esteemed series. While its sales aren't the greatest, the games still receive high acclaim from critics and hardcore gaming junkies alike (well, the 2D ones, anyway.) However, one thing that should be noted about the praise slavished upon Konami's long-running franchise is that almost all of it is directed to 1997's Symphony of the Night and its followups. That game combined a Metroid-esque sense of exploration with smooth controls and a gorgeous art direction,...

Iíll tell you about Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition just as soon as it finishes loading. Itíll probably finish in a few seconds...or minutes. In the meantime, uh, how are you? What have you been doing?

Area 51 (PC)

Area 51 review (PC)

Reviewed on June 28, 2006

Midway originally released Area 51 as a lightgun game several but, when all of the sudden remaking old games became popular, the good people at Midway decided that they would modernize Area 51 and turn it into a traditional first-person shooter and dropping the lightgun gimmick (and the arcades) which made the franchise popular. I blame Nintendo and the Gameboy Advance for causing this phenomenon to sweep the video gaming world, but I wonít get started on that. There are very few s...

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

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

Reviewed on June 28, 2006

F.E.A.R stands as the most intense first-person shooter Iíve ever played. It doesnít achieve intensity by bombarding you with ear-splitting explosions, or keeping you constantly at the brink of death, but through sheer atmosphere, design, and pacing. Even if you arenít a tactician when it comes to first-person shooters and prefer run-and-gun mayhem, this game will slow you down and force you into the crouch position. F.E.A.R will have you leaning around corners, taking very careful...

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask review (N64)

Reviewed on June 28, 2006

MM (the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask) is perhaps the single most unique Zelda game. It did something that only one of the others did; it broke away from the classic Zelda story line. MM also has revamped graphics and a new musical score when compared to Ocarina of Time, but the combat is mostly the same. As for the length and difficulty of MM; the difficulty can be gauged, but this game has a very interesting innovation that makes it much more difficult to determine the length of the game: a t...
