Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers (DS)

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...

Hitman: Blood Money review (X360)

Reviewed on June 13, 2006

Killing ninjas, badassing, looking cool, blah, blah, blah. I don't need to remind you just how awesome Agent 47 was in the past three games. You should know by now. And if not, SHAME ON YOU! But with this fourth installment now out, is the Hitman series starting to run out of steam? Is Agent 47 losing his awesomeness? Are we gonna be Tomb Raider'd? No, no, and THANK GOD no. Hitman: Blood Money is a great game that doesn't disappoint, and it turns out to be the best of the series, so far.

Shadow the Hedgehog (Xbox)

Shadow the Hedgehog review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 13, 2006

Contrary to what most believe, Shadow the Hedgehog is an improvement, not a step back. Even before the black hedgehogís solo debut hit the shelves, scepticism had already shown his grim face. The last proper Sonic game, Sonic Heroes was, to be frank, awful. Its quirky new design looked charming enough and its diverse range of characters was enough to make any Sonic fan drool. However, its poor level design and bad voice actors were enough to have anyone ripping huge chunks of ha...

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (SNES)

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 11, 2006

After playing Cold Shadow in its entirety, it would seem to me that Maui Mallard was created only for the simple purpose of fooling us Donald Duck fans into playing the game. Oh, Disney, you and your devilish schemes! Thatís right: what you see in the cover art and in-game screenshots is not Donald, but actually Maui Mallard! And what are the differences between Donald and Maui? Well, save for the lack of a red bowtie and Fauntleroy sailor hat, none.

Hitman: Blood Money (Xbox)

Hitman: Blood Money review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 10, 2006

The seemingly insipid story revolving around a genetically cloned man offing assortments of people around the world doesnít look or sound too outwardly appealing. I mean, canít we fill a slew of bad guys with lead in countless other games already? Sure we can. But what makes Hitman: Blood Money so darn endearing is its matter-of-fact approach to the stunningly brutal acts of murder found throughout the whole game. However, itís not simply the murder that does it; itís the maddeningly clever ...

Lost Magic review (DS)

Reviewed on June 10, 2006

Coming up with RPGs for the DS must be tricky. Sure, your staff can come up with all sorts of cliched stories and generic heroes to go with them. Thereís also plenty of leeway with regards to the leveling and combat systems. Hell, even the DSís graphical capabilities can work a few small wonders. But the real problem lies with the Touch Screen; itís one of the systemís most celebrated features, yet finding new and inventive ways to utilize it must be quite a task. All things considered, itís lit...

Trace Memory review (DS)

Reviewed on June 09, 2006

A young boy watches in horror as one man levels a pistol at another. Pop Cue a blood red fadeout. Over four decades later, a mother hustles her daughter into hiding. Peeking from the closet, the small girl with white hair sees only the silhouette of a man holding a gun. Another dull pop resonates. Cue another blood red fadeout.

King of Fighters: Maximum Impact review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 03, 2006

Once upon a time, the Street Fighter series was the greatest thing to happen to the fighting game genre. There was a massive roster of incredibly popular characters, a wide variety of special moves, and some of the best competitive gameplay ever seen. But for all of the success that the Street Fighter genre garnered with each passing year, there was only one other series in Japan that rivaled its awesomeness: The King of Fighters. There were no sumo wrestlers, Indian Yoga disciples, Sonic Booms,...

Iíve played Final Fantasy games involving cute ďslam dancingĒ animals, a stupid creature called NORG, and implied man-on-man action in a notorious place called the Honey Bee Inn. What I havenít experienced is a Final Fantasy game as insanely difficult as the fourth installment. Perhaps the first couple games featured on Final Fantasy Origins were the most challenging, but those PSone incarnations were on a glorious easy setting that made things a breeze.

Metroid: Zero Mission review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 24, 2006

It is the start of one of the most cherished franchises, one that spawned sequels many consider to be among the best games of all time. It's ending surprised everyone, becoming one of the most iconic moments in gaming history. It is ingrained into our collective consciousness, an experience anyone who plays games knows about. And it's a bad game. Yes, you heard me. The original Metroid was nearly unplayable thanks to some poor decisions, limitations in the hardware, and simply awful design ...

Being Sonic isnít as easy as one might think. Once one looks past the glamour of being a world hero, his job is pretty tough. Sonicís arch-nemesis, Dr. Robotnik, is constantly kidnapping the furry animals of the world and only Sonic can save them. This might seem like an easy task at first but it is much more difficult than it presents itself. The reason for this complication is because Dr. Robotnik has set up machines to try to take out Sonic so he doesnít have to take out the blue hedgehog him...

Military games are a dime a dozen these days. When was the last time a major World War II-based combat simulation not being released for a home console or PC? How many times can we take on the AI-controlled Germans and still feel like weíre playing a unique game? Havenít we deployed platoons, shot down enemy fighters, endured D-Day, blown up, and used tanks to plow our way through enemy forces enough times to make the whole experience seem unoriginal?

Youíve got your back against the wall, and your heart is pounding.

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (PlayStation 2)

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 22, 2006

Lord of the Rings is the all-time classic fantasy novel, and now movie experience. Tolkien would be my favorite writer if it wasn't for R.A. Salvatore and the movies would be my favorite film trilogy if it wasn't for Star Wars (the original three of course). With all the hype The Third Age was getting, I was hopping that it would be the source of entertainment that broke the "runner-up" streak that Lord of the Rings has had with me. It did, but unfortunately not in a good wa...

Cavity Sam has dedicated his entire existence to the medical field.

Every time one of his vital organs goes missing, his red nose lights up in distress, or his body emits a shocking buzz, we know Sam has sacrificed a little more of himself.
