New Super Mario Bros. (DS)

New Super Mario Bros. review (DS)

Reviewed on May 20, 2006

It’s a tough legacy to follow, when you are the over weight, mushroom eating, fireball spitting, Italian plumber known as Mario. Super Mario Bros. hit the scene in 1985 and blew the world away. My first video game experience was Super Mario Bros. and thanks to its amazing adventure, I was hooked on a hobby that I have loved since. Albeit, a bit dated, the original Super Mario Bros. is fun at its purest form. While Nintendo followed it up with a slightly disappointed sequel, it was still more tha...

Fable: The Lost Chapters (Xbox)

Fable: The Lost Chapters review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 20, 2006

Before the original Fable's release, lead designer Peter Molyneux hyped up the game so much that it seemed that it would be the most ingenious RPG ever. Upon release followers of Mr. Molyneux were disappointed to find that instead of the groundbreaking best RPG ever, what they found was a short, linear game that featured a bare-bones story and dumbed-down customization when compared to what was originally planned. Despite this, people still loved the game, mainly due to its fantastic presentatio...

Call of Duty (PC)

Call of Duty review (PC)

Reviewed on May 17, 2006

The Medal of Honor series has always amazed me with its atmosphere and perfect portrayal of war. Battlefield 1942 (and its successor) and Day of Defeat offered what it quite possibly the best World War II multiplayer experiences ever. But Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty tops them all. It doesn’t have the atmosphere of Medal of Honor or the options and multiplayer of the latter two (although it is atmospheric and has decent multiplayer), but it does exactly what...

Tomb Raider: Legend (PlayStation 2)

Tomb Raider: Legend review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 17, 2006

I have no right to comment on how much the entire Tomb Raider series has ended up smelling like moldy catacombs. I have not played a Tomb Raider game since the third installment, I believe it was. I think Lara went to Area 51 or something, and that is where I bid the lass adieu. Just like most people, I enjoyed the first game quite a bit and was also satisfied enough with the first sequel. The third one did not have enough new material to keep me interested and the new material that it did ...

Black (Xbox)

Black review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 10, 2006

Let’s talk about realism for a minute. The video game industry is “supposed” to be moving towards realistic everything. Realistic gameplay that’s so technical it isn’t fun (Ghost Recon anyone?). Audio realism that’s so accurate you’ll swear you’re actually on the battlefield. Photo-realism with girls and cars that look “better” than the real thing (check out Gran Turismo). We’re told that we shouldn't want games that look like cartoons anymore, and that we should want super-detaile...

OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast (Xbox)

OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 10, 2006

It's been awhile since I've first experienced OutRun2. While I haven't played it a lot lately, I still consider it one of the best titles I've played in recent years. It had an overwhelming feel-goodness to it that was infectious at times. The gameplay was good, too. There were times I thought I wasn't going to play a new game like that for a LONG while. But, here I am, a year and a half later, playing the followup, OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast. Is it as good as OR2? He...

Red Dead Revolver (PlayStation 2)

Red Dead Revolver review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 07, 2006

Here are a few examples of bad before and after scenarios. Go work out, then when you’ve exercised yourself until you’re starving eat a bunch of cookies and candy bars. Put an entertainment center or bookshelf together using only tape, and then throw all of your stuff on it at once to see if it holds. And finally, watch a really bad “western” movie (The Quick and the Dead) then search fervently for a “western” game (Red Dead Revolver) to fill the mental gap that is now in your life. Remin...

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence (DS)

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence review (DS)

Reviewed on May 07, 2006

Toss aside the robotic and archaic controls, the seemingly predictable surprises in abundance and the undeniably boring story present in nearly every Resident Evil known to man, and you’re left with what looks to be a scant amount of enjoyable video game material. Adding insult to injury, let’s throw on an antiquated control scheme, and some of the worst voice acting to ever grace a video game system. It sounds like I’m ripping Resident Evil: Deadly Silence a new one, but in truth, I have to a...

Lords of Thunder (Sega CD)

Lords of Thunder review (SCD)

Reviewed on May 06, 2006

There are two reasons gamers play scrolling shooters. The first is intensity. Yes, intensity, that nebulous, ubiquitous descriptor which encompasses hurtling projectiles, swarms of enemies, huge bosses, and fancy-looking weapon effects. If a shooter has all of these things, it's basically a can't-miss proposition.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox)

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay review (XBX)

Reviewed on May 06, 2006

I used to write articles on a monthly basis for my local newspaper. It was a great little job for me because I got to write about video games and movies and unlike these reviews, I actually got paid for it. I started a “Best Entertainment Bets” column eventually that I used to discuss my top picks for upcoming games and movies, and I picked the Chronicles of Riddick DVD as the best upcoming DVD. I received quite a few comments about my choice. Many people hated the film. I guess I can und...

Siren (PlayStation 2)

Siren review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 06, 2006

These days it seems like the Japanese have become the torch-bearers for quality horror movies. Frankly, the American formula was getting a bit old, a bit unimaginative, and a bit too action-oriented. Often times, I cannot differentiate the latest American horror film from a comic book or a “Rambo” sequel. Japanese horror does have a more direct effect on me. I think the reason is that it’s a bit more cerebral. Though many traditional Japanese horror stories may seem a bit odd to the America...

Need for Speed: Most Wanted review (X360)

Reviewed on May 05, 2006

I’m not a racing game fan. I usually prefer an rpg with a good story and unforgettable characters. But once in awhile a great racing game comes out that I must play. One such game was Need for Speed Underground, which was the first of a new genre of racing games. It offered great visuals, awesome cars, and exhilarating fun. Now, two installments later in the Need for Speed series, Most Wanted offers the same exciting gameplay with some new features and the classic police chases that make it just...

Condemned: Criminal Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on May 05, 2006

You’re walking down a dark hallway, littered with trash, torn-up, blood infested walls. The only light above is flickering rapidly, you hear deep breathing- footsteps. You’re holding a bloody shovel, right on the trail of the Torturer, a deadly serial killer. You hear a garbage can rustle and fall and you jump out of your seat! You take some cautious steps forward and peek into a room. Then you see something jump across the room and you hear the loud thump as a drug addict cracks a 2 x 4 over yo...

Gradius III (SNES)

Gradius III review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 29, 2006

First and foremost: Gradius III has some of the worst slowdown ever seen in a scrolling shooter. Yes, yes, this is a common issue in early third-party SNES games, and Gradius III was actually the first third-party game ever released on the system (just two weeks after launch.) Even so, the fact that slowdown is the first thing to come to mind when I think about Gradius III is not a good sign. If more than a few sprites or one larger-than-normal sprite is present (which is almost always, and incl...

SRS: Street Racing Syndicate (PlayStation 2)

SRS: Street Racing Syndicate review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 27, 2006

From the old school arcade to the modern day consoles, racing games have developed a large following. Whether you’re a fan of tearing down the streets racing for pinks in games like Need for Speed or entering the circuit and chasing the checkered flag in games like Sega Rally, there is something for everyone. Even for the guys like me who don’t know anything about racing or even cars for that matter, there are games. Games like Street Racing Syndicate. Maybe not the best thing out there, but cer...

Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 27, 2006

Imagine that after living a crappy life, you were murdered, just like that and even worse, when they threw your ass into a hole in the ground, no one cared. No one came to wish you your best as you began your journey into your afterlife. There were no fancy tombs, no sacrifices, no screaming widows; just a lump left in the Earth after the dirt was thrown on top of you. That would suck. Moments before your death, as your life flashed before your eyes, you’d wish for a chance to come back and do t...

Tekken 5 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 26, 2006

Tekken 5 was out for more than a year before I even realized it existed. Kind of sad, really, when you consider I’m the guy who spent most of his teenage years pumping enough quarters into Tekken 3 to pay for college. Why? I just didn’t care anymore. Tag was boring and 4 never entered my thoughts let alone my collection, but in browsing I had hope for 5. “Rebuilt engine, customize your characters.” I read. “Prepare for the deepest, most relentless fighting acti...

Top Spin (PlayStation 2)

Top Spin review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2006

Indisputably a revelation at its initial release, Top Spin spent its first two years of existence secluded in the land of Microsoft. But with the sequel tapped to expand the franchise fiefdom to Nintendo’s handhelds, Sony needed a piece of the action as well. So out came the PS2 version of the original game, raring to teach everyone who avoided the XBox how deep and enjoyable a well done game of tennis could be. Unfortunately, the main lesson here is how much an old and unimproved pi...
