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 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 (NES)

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? Working a lot? Oh wait, I think itís done. Wait, nope, itís still loading. Itíll be just a little bit more. I apologize. The longer it loads, the better it must be, right?!

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...

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX (Game Boy Color)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX review (GBC)

Reviewed on June 28, 2006

Link's Awakening DX (LA for the purpose of this review) is one of the lesser known games in the Zelda saga. Their are several possible reasons for it's being relatively unknown: perhaps people are alienated by the original storyline, maybe people prefer the item systems of Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Wind Waker, or perhaps people simply flat-out hate handhelds. In any event, LA is one of the stronger Zelda titles, due to its being perhaps the most unique of them all.

Lunar: Dragon Song (DS)

Lunar: Dragon Song review (DS)

Reviewed on June 25, 2006

If an RPG strongly encourages a player to engage in twice as many battles as should be necessary, then it better possess an engaging fighting scheme. Lunar: Dragon Song does not. Its limited turn-based system might as well be on autopilot, which is thankfully a prominent selection preceding every encounter.

Big Sky Trooper review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 25, 2006

Do you believe in aliens? Do you think that thereís a whole other race of intelligent beings somewhere out in that endless void called the universe? The entertainment industry certainly thinks so. Over the last few decades, weíve been introduced to a wide variety of beings that look nothing like anything from our planet. Weíve met Wookies, Vulcans, Ewoks, and whatever the hell E.T. was. But for all of those beneficent races, there are always more than enough evil ones, such as the ones from I...

Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers review (DS)

Reviewed on June 25, 2006

Itís officially the summer of 2006, and American gamers have their hands full right now. The gaming world steeped in hype over the next generation of systems, the current systems are dying off in a blaze of glory, and one of the most heated handheld gaming rivalries ever shows no sign cooling down. In the midst of all the change, DS tries to make up for lacking graphical power by offering gamers some of the most interesting games out there, ranging from the misadventures of Phoenix Wright...

Half-Life 2: Episode One review (PC)

Reviewed on June 20, 2006

I donít like this whole ďepisodic gamingĒ trend thatís hitting PCs everywhere thanks to our good friends at Valve, the creators of Half-Life. While I understand their justifications for releasing segments of a single game in four-hour blocks over the span of a couple of years instead of one whole package that will inevitably spend much more time in development, I just donít like playing through what feels like an unfinished product. Half-Life 2: Episode One has all the polish and s...
