Facade (PC)

Facade review (PC)

Reviewed on April 09, 2006

Questioning whether Façade is a game would be to overlook its importance in game design. In fact, to rant on this independent-party, low-budget, one-gigabyte download would be a failure to admit its inherent production value. Façade does not intend to be a masterpiece. It intends to be an experiment in artificial intelligence and natural language processing, allowing you to type a short sentence of dialogue at any time during a conversation. And what better place to interrupt a con...

Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar (Genesis)

Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 08, 2006

The Genesis has a lot of shooters. Not just any type of shooter, mind you, but the variety that encompasses Gradius, R-Type, Darius, etc... You know, the subgenre of shooters that no one can quite settle on a name for. The term "space shooter" doesn't include games with non-space settings, like 1942 or Legendary Wings; "scrolling shooter" doesn't include 3D shooters like Star Fox or stationary shooters like Galaga; "shoot-'em-up" also brings to mind run 'n' guns like Contra and Gunstar Heroes; a...

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat (PlayStation 2)

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 08, 2006

An explosion rings in your ears, and the flaming shell of a light assault vehicle is catapulted into the air. Rounds of suppressing fire spark off everywhere. It is war. A few milliseconds later you are in control of a rocket-toting engineer. You fire off a rocket… Suddenly, you are in control of a tank. Advancing through the burning rubble, you rotate the cannon and fire at a shroud of advancing enemies… Another explosion and you are in control of a sniper, high above the battle. A few of the o...

Metroid Prime Pinball (DS)

Metroid Prime Pinball review (DS)

Reviewed on April 06, 2006

The amalgamation of genres so inherently different usually elicits a three-letter internet acronym from many a videogamer that begins with a "W" and ends with an "F". This is precisely the reception that Metroid Prime: Pinball got when it was announced, not only because Nintendo rolled up a first person adventure into a tiny pinball, but also because - well - "...it's just a pinball game." Further, because developer Fuse Games was also responsible for the utterly mundane Mario Pinball land, it a...

Advance Wars: Dual Strike (DS)

Advance Wars: Dual Strike review (DS)

Reviewed on April 06, 2006

Advance Wars: DS' gameplay is identical to its predecessors', which can only be a good thing. Like Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, and the original before it, Dual Strike utilizes a rock-paper-scissors mechanic that balances simplicity and depth beautifully. On paper, it doesn't seem like much. You'll take turns with your opponent deploying units from friendly bases, capturing neutral and hostile properties, and attacking units until you either destroy all of your enemy's forces or capture th...

The Outfit (Xbox 360)

The Outfit review (X360)

Reviewed on April 06, 2006

The Outfit is definitely an energetic WWII title (and it's not a FPS for a change *gasps*), getting things into gear the moment you begin the first mission. As you walk around your supposedly safe base, still getting accustomed to the controls of one of the three main characters you chose (each having a different main and secondary weapon), a bunch of Nazis drop down from the sky trying to ruin your shit. You can easily take them out yourself, because you're obviously a manly man (or.... ...

Polarium (DS)

Polarium review (DS)

Reviewed on April 06, 2006

"It will be the next [anything]" is a claim thrown around far too often. It happens in sports, music and Hollywood. Unsurprisingly, such claims also permeate the videogame realm, and perhaps to even a greater extent than they do the aforementioned sectors of entertainment. Titles claiming to be a "Halo killer" or the next "Grand Theft Auto" should be approached like Miss Cleo - with much skepticism.

God of War (PlayStation 2)

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 05, 2006

I put off buying God of War for a year. Despite people raving about it and critics praising it, I chose to spend my hard earned money on games like Kingdom Hearts and Shining Tears. Which makes me wonder if I’m crazy. I almost passed this gem up for Donald Duck and cartoon graphics?

MVP '06 NCAA Baseball (PlayStation 2)

MVP '06 NCAA Baseball review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 04, 2006

After drawing the public’s ire for (allegedly) pushing employees to the grindstone and (definitely) monopolizing the NFL license, EA received a bit of comeuppance when Take-Two Interactive snagged the mostly exclusive rights to produce Major League Baseball video games. But rather than allowing their superb MVP engine to lay dormant, those fine Electronic Artists turned around and produced a novelty – the first ever college baseball game.

Raiden Trad (Genesis)

Raiden Trad review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 04, 2006

Raiden was never a great game. Hell, Raiden was never even a good game, period. The game doesn't even try to be original; its most remarkable feature is just how unremarkable it is. Hey, it's yet another vertically-scrolling shooter, but this time you can...err...

RF Online (PC)

RF Online review (PC)

Reviewed on April 04, 2006

I have to say that I’m inherently biased towards most games that have Transformers in them. RF Online (Rising Force Online) does not have actual Transformers in it, but it does have a race called the Accretian Empire that do look a little like Transformers. So of course, when I got the game I decided to play as them. The Transformers are pissed off at everyone because their home planet is out of resources. They’ve tried to go out and get more, but the compassionless peoples of the Holy Al...

Shining Tears (PlayStation 2)

Shining Tears review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 03, 2006

I've never been much of a fan of the Shining Series. I was playing games like Final Fantasy II and III while other kids, I'm led to believe, were playing Shining Force I and II. Admittedly, I owned a Genesis before I owned a Super Nintendo, but the Super Nintendo was just better, and it knew it. It was stylish and confident, like a quiet, attractive girl who reads books written by smart people and listens to classical music. The Genesis, on the contrary, was that chic who hung onto the outer...

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on April 03, 2006

I’ll spare you the traditional lectures at the beginning of reviews for Mario games. I’m not going to go on about how Nintendo just loves shoving the little red plumber into every genre ever created (coming soon: Mario Tournament 2007) and I’m certainly not going to question or even call attention to the fact that Nintendo loves to take the same game and release it over and over again for every system. You’ve heard it all before and you’re probably sicker of it than I am. So, I won...

Tetris DS (DS)

Tetris DS review (DS)

Reviewed on April 02, 2006

There can never be too much said about the quality found within the hallowed halls of the Tetris franchise. Whether you look at it as simplistic, yet forceful or charmingly intricate, the series’ undeniably splendid gameplay and enduring replay value is a benchmark for all future puzzlers. With Tetris DS, the concept is simple enough: present a game that manages to utilize some of the DS’ functions, add a bevy of game modes, and keep the same vintage gameplay in tact; suffice to say that Tetri...

Table Tennis (Odyssey)

Table Tennis review (ODY)

Reviewed on April 02, 2006

For anyone who doesn't know about the "Pong" craze from the '70s, it was literally a zeitgeist that sweeped the nation. The Christmas of 1975 made "Pong" a household name with the sale of the Sears/Atari home "Pong" consoles. These hooked into the television inputs, and play was done directly from the console itself by two or more players. Numerous versions of "Pong" were released from multiple distributors after that initial success. It was a true phenomenon that led Atari to develop what we no...

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Atari 2600)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 02, 2006

I will just come out and say it. I HATED the story behind the horror movie "Texas Chainsaw Massacre". I found it detestable in every sense that the word can express. It is, to put it mildly, absolute, pure, in-your-face, unapologetic death and disregard for human life. I watched it, almost by accident, the first time with the sound off. I was on the phone with a friend, and it was right there, on the screen. I was doing my best to keep up my conversation with my friend without hinting to her ver...

Darius Twin review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 29, 2006

Taito, like every other company in the early 90s, wanted to jump on the scrolling shooter bandwagon. It was the newest fad in the game industry! Part of the reason for this was because scrolling shooters are very easy games to program: no physics! Extremely linear gameplay (which makes bug testing a cinch)! Simple game mechanics! Only about eight levels are required to satisfy players! And what's more, those players loved them! What's not to love about scrolling shooters?

Lunar: The Silver Star (Sega CD)

Lunar: The Silver Star review (SCD)

Reviewed on March 28, 2006

I remember the good old days. Days where arcades were more popular than home systems. Days where cartridges dominated most systems and days where Working Designs actually published good games. Hell, great games. And I remember every single one. Especially Lunar: The Silver Star. It was the first and perhaps even the best.
