Condemned: Criminal Origins (Xbox 360)

Condemned: Criminal Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on April 15, 2006

Poor Ethan Thomas, he got screwed over big time. Upon investigating a crime scene in a rusty, broken-down building, he and two police officers discover that the killer is still in the place. Sounds like a simple job, right? I mean, it's three armed men against one, they'll have the dude pinned down by the end of the first chapter. Well, a couple of dead hobos later, he witnesses the two police men get shot by the serial killer with his own gun. Sucks, right? It gets worse. Ethan gets framed for ...

Space Harrier II (Genesis)

Space Harrier II review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 14, 2006

Space Harrier is not a game. Space Harrier is an idea. I can envision a programmer at Sega fiddling around with some code during his spare time and creating a functional 3D checkerboard field. Cue the proverbial light bulb.

Resident Evil 4 (PlayStation 2)

Resident Evil 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 13, 2006

The Resident Evil games never really changed that dramatically over the course of the series (up to recently). They never ventured very far beyond the boundaries of standard survival horror, even if the series had itself invented a lot of what now defines the genre. However, as the games progressed, they appeared to become more and more monotonous. There's only so many moaning zombies and skinless dogs a person can take before they begin to ask for something a little different. In the fourth gam...

Second Sight (PlayStation 2)

Second Sight review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 12, 2006

Do you like bald men? Yes? Like men with hair? Yes? Well then a person like you must be in a bit of a dilemma over which third-person action/adventure games to invest in. Well, for all those who base their purchases on the state of the characters hair (you know who you are), Second Sight may be the game for you.

Darkwatch (PlayStation 2)

Darkwatch review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 11, 2006

Jericho Cross, an outlaw in the wild west, holds up a train one night in an attempt to rob it of any treasure it may hold. However, he soon finds out that what is in the train is slightly more than he bargained for. By holding up the train, he unwittingly released a vampire lord, who curses the west, filling it with blood-hunting demons and monsters. So...it was a bad move.

Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

Pac-Man review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 11, 2006

I remember Christmas 1981 so well. It was a season of anticipation for one of the few gifts I wanted that year -- a copy of the Atari 2600 port of "Pac-Man". That game had literally dominated the arcades since it arrived, and I was weary of having to stand in line for a chance to play a game that might only last five minutes. Games of speed and skill like "Pac-Man" took time to master, and it seemed like the ration of time I received in respect to other gamers just wasn't enough to develop the n...

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 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...
