MVP 06 NCAA Baseball (PlayStation 2)

MVP 06 NCAA Baseball review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 04, 2006

After drawing the publicís 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 Ė 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 Iím 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. Theyíve 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

Iíll spare you the traditional lectures at the beginning of reviews for Mario games. Iím 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 Iím 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. Youíve heard it all before and youíre 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 seriesí 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 DSí 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.

Custer's Revenge (Atari 2600)

Custer's Revenge review (A2600)

Reviewed on March 27, 2006

Large mountains, blue skies, and fluffy white clouds loom large against the yellow sands of the desert. An Indian teepee sits off in the distance, putting out a regular smoke signal. The sound of the American Cavalry's bugle plays loud, immediately followed by what is presented as an Indian battle tune more than common to the ear of any American television audience. War is looming on the horizon. A naked Indian maiden stands tied to a pole, faced with the daunting reality of an encroaching Gener...

Baby Pac-Man (Arcade)

Baby Pac-Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 27, 2006

While everyone knows of Midway's unauthorized sequels to "Pac-Man", namely "Ms. Pac-Man" and to a lesser extent, "Jr. Pac-Man", very few have heard of this questionable game. Releasing in 1982, a year after "Mrs. Pac-Man" and a year before "Jr. Pac-Man", it never seemed to catch on in the arcades the way the other games in the series had. In fact, out of all the malls, theaters, restaurants, shopping centers, convenience stores, and arcades that I have perused for pay-per-play video game action,...

Space Shuttle: A Journey Into Space (Atari 2600)

Space Shuttle: A Journey Into Space review (A2600)

Reviewed on March 27, 2006

The '80s was a time of renewed interest in bedrock American ideals founded in rugged individualism, entrepreneurism, and invention. The decades of essential spiritual growth America had gone through from the '60s up to the early '80s was coming to its close, and a new time of reclaiming the American psyche had begun. Allegorical symbols such as the face lift given to the beloved Statue of Liberty practically represented our own process as a nation of "growing up" into liberty and equality while ...

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial review (A2600)

Reviewed on March 27, 2006

A little over a year ago, I wrote a review for one of my favorite games from my childhood. It was a game I had fond memories of, and was one of the first games I had encountered which actually had a quest structure that made sense, presenting a thinking man's challenge. That game was called "E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial", and it was released on a system not generally known for this type of involved adventure game, the Atari 2600. As I visited the review website's web entry for this game, I saw to...

Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon review (CDI)

Reviewed on March 26, 2006

Imagine a warped-alternate universe in which one of the most beloved (and Nintendo's most successful and admired) gaming series, namely "The Legend of Zelda", was reduced from its status as the "Holy Grail" of the gaming industry to a less than stellar status of a non-innovative formulaic platformer. Imagine that a development studio with an eye on churning out cheap clones released multiple versions of the game with different overlays and cheaply made cut-scenes, along with some of the worst st...
