Doom II: Hell on Earth (PC)

Doom II: Hell on Earth review (PC)

Reviewed on March 06, 2006

The Space Marines were never trained to battle the endless streams of hellspawn pouring through the interdimensional rift inside their Mars base. Doom told of exactly that. You're the last one, the very last Space Marine standing between the people of Earth and eternal damnation. What felt like a massacre before was merely a warm-up to nothing less than a full-blown war between good (you) and evil (them)! It's Hell on Earth, literally.

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (PlayStation 2)

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 02, 2006

I’ve learned a lot of things about games strictly from reading reviews. I’ll share. Chrono Cross is doomed to be argued until the end of time, someone will always try to put a new spin on Metal Slug no matter how many times it’s been reviewed and everyone loves Zelda games. I’ve also learned Tony Hawk “fans” are whiners. So many have spouted things as “This series is in a downward spiral” and “The Sky fell for me” and “What Happened to the lava?” Hmm. That’s a cute s...

True Crime: Streets of LA (Xbox)

True Crime: Streets of LA review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2006

Imagine a kung-fu flick that has car chases, shoot outs and stars a cop looking to uncover the mystery of his lost father with gangster rap overtones. Now, imagine you could actually take control of this wacko combination and play it. True Crime is this interactive kung-fu flick, and it’s as entertaining as it is strange. Which is definitely a good thing.

Sword of the Samurai (PC)

Sword of the Samurai review (PC)

Reviewed on March 02, 2006

The coward Kobayashi trembled at the sight of my gleaming blade. What's more, I told him, flat out to his face, that he was a pathetic wretch descended from a long line of dung haulers. A prouder samurai would not take such an obvious insult without a duel to the death, but not Kobayashi. His servants could only stare in disbelief at what was going on in this quaint garden teahouse. History was being made. My stoic glare cut deeper than any knife, yet internally I could barely contain my giddine...

The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare (SNES)

The Simpsons: Bart's Nightmare review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 01, 2006

It’s a well known fact that most games based on The Simpsons turn out to be rather poor. You only have to look at the rather pathetic efforts such as Hit and Run and Simpson’s Wrestling to get that point proven. However, if you go back a decade, you’ll find the selection of Simpsons games to be (well, let’s not be too hasty) rather sufficient. With an excellent 2-D beat-em-up on the arcade and Bart’s Nightmare, a rather original collection of mini-games, it certainly looks like Simpson’s titles ...

State of Emergency 2 (PlayStation 2)

State of Emergency 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 27, 2006

After I played the first few levels of State of Emergency 2, I sat down and thought about the game. I came to the conclusion that from a Spider-Man perspective (goofy but fun), I kind of liked the game. Then I decided to read through the attached press releases that came included with my review copy of the game. They called the game’s storyline “gripping” and made it out to be as serious as cancer. From this more Schindler’s List perspective (serious and depressing), the gam...

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (DS)

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2006

As a child, adults would commonly ask about a child’s aspirations in life. Certainly, nobody would answer that they aspire to be a garbage disposer or a manager at a local fast food chain. Most answers would consist of being lawyers, doctors, psychologists, etc. Unfortunately, as children grow up their lack of effort in school also diminishes. Not everyone can be a lawyer or a doctor, but luckily for those that couldn’t get into law school, Capcom has decided to meet the needs of the unlucky. En...

The Suffering: Ties that Bind (PlayStation 2)

The Suffering: Ties that Bind review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 25, 2006

The Suffering set players into the boots of Torque, a prisoner on death row. One day, Torque accidentally killed his wife and two sons. He didn’t remember doing it, but ignorance wasn't an excuse the jury would accept. Torque was sent to Carnate Island, Maryland. Since The Suffering is a video game, Abbot Penitentiary was the worst correctional facility imaginable. Unspeakable evils were committed there for hundreds of years, but through a bizarre set of circumstances involving gho...

Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360)

Dead or Alive 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on February 19, 2006

November 22, 2005 was the day Microsoft finally launched its brand new console, the Xbox360. While Dead or Alive 4 is a bit late for the launch party, the amount of polish and features more than makes up for it. Like the previous Xbox, Team Ninja welcomes the new Microsoft system with another solid addition of the Dead or Alive series. The Dead or Alive series has always been the top-tier series for Itagaki and Team Ninja. The series has always been infamous for its overly large assets and its r...

Guilty Gear X2 #Reload (Xbox)

Guilty Gear X2 #Reload review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 15, 2006

If Guilty Gear is known for anything, it’s the way it hands the player a series of complex rules and gauges that are unmatched in modern day 2-D fighters. Taking quintessential elements from Sega’s unappreciated classic Eternal Champions: Challenge from the Dark Side and merging it with its own distinct style and complexity, Sammy has created a monster. It would be fair to say that GGX2 is one of the most complete 2-D fighters of all time, surpassing anything that former fighting giants C...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PlayStation 2)

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 13, 2006

The most recent entry in the Metal Gear lineup is Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. I thought the title was a joke when the game was announced. The same goes for all of the gameplay videos showing Snake, our mullet-cut hero, eating snakes and running around the jungle.

ICO (PlayStation 2)

ICO review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 12, 2006

In some regards, Ico is the antithesis of most macho console games. There’s little in the way of narration aside from a couple cutscenes, but the mysterious plot is one of the most intriguing aspects of Ico. There are no health bars and the simplistic combat often has the young protagonist armed with only a wooden plank. There aren’t any bosses aside from the final enemy, but there is plenty of hand-holding and puzzles. All of these things come together to form a unique and memorable ...

Chrono Cross (PlayStation)

Chrono Cross review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 11, 2006

Although Chrono Trigger is commonly regarded as one of the best RPGs of all time, half of the game’s fans have never even bothered with its sequel, Chrono Cross. Nerds all over the Internet whine about how much it “sucks” and even go as far as making up lies; from claiming that it is not at all related to Trigger and the plot is meaningless.

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence review (DS)

Reviewed on February 11, 2006

I know what you’re thinking: you’ve played this game ten years ago, and after a half-dozen more incarnations across numerous platforms, including the complete makeover on the Nintendo Gamecube, why should you bother with the latest re-released version of Resident Evil? Well, let’s get to that, shall we?

The Legend of Oasis (Saturn)

The Legend of Oasis review (SAT)

Reviewed on February 11, 2006

A long time ago, on the island of Oasis, two men were at war with each other, Reharl and Agito, with the help of armlets. Agito had the Silver Armlet, and used it to do very, very bad things, while Reharl had the Golden Armlet, which had the ability to summon different spirits, and used his to stop Agito from doing any more very, very bad things. In the end, Reharl defeated Agito, and the inhabitants of Oasis lived happily ever after. The En..... that is, until now. Ordan, a badass-looking old d...

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PlayStation 2)

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 09, 2006

Everyone was talking about it. “Dragon Quest VIII is going to be the best RPG of the year” and “Dragon Quest VIII is finally coming out. I can’t wait.” I was thinking “Awesome. What the hell is Dragon Quest?” Then slowly, after seeing a very unique slime bounding around on one of the commercials, it dawned on me: Dragon quest is Dragon Warrior, the old school "heal more, hurt more" epic that made me love RPGS in the first place. I was in the car the next moment...

SOCOM II: U.S. Navy SEALs review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 09, 2006

How can I write a review for a game that I’ve spent over 3,000 hours playing in the span of nearly two and a half years? How I write a review for a game that I know inside out and probably much better than the developers? Well, I tell you how freaking good it is, that’s how.

There was a time when the name Tony Hawk was synonymous with a great game that offered hours of fun gameplay. Those times are long gone. Now, the Tony Hawk games, much like the man himself are fading away with age.

The Ninja Kids review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 08, 2006

According to a few religions, we are on the brink of the end of the world. Supposedly, humanity is nearing Judgment Day, the Apocalypse, the End of Days, or however else the day is named. The human race will die out, letting the blessed ascend into the great arcade in the sky while the sinners are cast into a dark and fiery oblivion. The world as we know it would cease to exist, an unfathomable and bleak future for everything else that survived. Sounds like fun, right? Caught in the midst of suc...

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 07, 2006

The Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank series come to mind when most gamers think of the best platformers over the last few years. Along the way, the Sly Cooper series somehow didn’t get as much attention. The original Sly Cooper was a fun concept that was executed well, with a good story and some engaging characters. The sequel came along and added to the formula to make it much better. With the latest installment in the series, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, the developers at Sucker Punch have ...
