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.

Capcom wants to teach us about Japanese lawyers. According to the house that Captain Commando built, we can come to understand a few things about the lawyers we'd find milling about Akihabara district, and the legal system in which they operate:

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 (Atari 2600)

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...

Metroid Prime: Hunters (DS)

Metroid Prime: Hunters review (DS)

Reviewed on March 26, 2006

This game has given me some much needed perspective on an aspect of life I’ve sadly deserted…my temper. Yes, while Metroid Prime: Hunters sports some of the most handsome graphics available on a handheld, finely tuned AI, impressive online features, and even bots to engage the lowlifes with no friends, it still manages to frustrate me to a maddening level with its controls from hell. After you pop this game in your DS (and you should, this is still a fine game), be warned now that within an ho...

A.P.B. review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

For a few short days, Officer Bob knew paradise. The trial for the vacant position on the police force had been surprisingly easy; all he had to do was drive around a parking lot and pretend to arrest some orange cones. Then he was on the job, cruising through town and issuing citations between grabbing donuts on the run. But if Bob had possessed more of an officer’s instinct, he may have wondered why such a sleepy whistle-stop needed multiple massive police stations, each flanked by a fleet ...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

When Nintendo unveiled the first screens for Wind Waker back in 2001 (it was still being called simply "The Legend of Zelda" at the time), the game's cel-shading graphical style was a great source of controversy among the gaming community. What happened to the badass Link vs. Ganon tech demo that we saw back during Spaceworld 2000? Why does Nintendo feel the need to jump on the cel-shading bandwagon along with every other company? Why does Link have beetle eyes?

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (Game Boy Advance)

The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

I'll get straight to the point: the Zelda series needs a makeover. Badly. While the latest installment in the 18-years-running series remains an delightfully enjoyable experience for newcomers, longtime fans are likely to notice that everything's feeling tired, a bit rehashed, and above all, stale. If you've played any of the other Zelda games, you've played the Minish Cap. Whether this is good or bad lies within your judgment.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on March 22, 2006

The Nintendo 64 console has gained some infamy over the years for having quite possibly the worst lineup ever seen in a successful console. This is due partially to the fact that Nintendo severely limited the number of third-party developers that were able to make games for the system, and largely because Nintendo opted to stick with a cartridge-based format in an age where everybody and their dogs had made the transition to compact discs, which hold about 10 times as much memory as the largest ...
