Guitar Hero (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 10, 2006

Simulations - even Guitar Hero - are seen as fake. While most genres are judged on creativity as works of "fiction", most sport and rhythm-based games are "non-fiction" and are judged on how close they come to the real thing. Dance Dance Revolution and DrumMania use interactive peripherals - a dancing platform and a drum set. But watch people play DDR by stomping their feet on directional arrows and it looks like they're doing step aerobics; or, watch DrumMania experts fever...

Nintendogs (DS)

Nintendogs review (DS)

Reviewed on January 09, 2006

Nintendogs is, if you will, a virtual pet simulator. It lets you choose your very own companion among quite a large selection of different dogs. You can name it, walk it, play with it, wash it, pet it, teach it tricks, enter it in competitions... and pretty much everything you can do with a real dog. The game is perfectly fitted for the DS, making brilliant use of all of its features.

Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES)

Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 08, 2006

Lufia II is extremely underrated. It never got much attention and developed only a minor, almost insignificant group of Internet followers. While the oblivious cognoscenti of SNES videogames praise games like Chrono Trigger and FFVI as life-altering trips, Lufia is pretty much ignored. Why? Maybe because it was released too late. Maybe its simplicity didnít satisfy most fans, most of whom were used to very complex plots. We could argue this all day but we just canít run away from t...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 08, 2006

How does one write such a review? How does one begin? We can start by declaring this one of the three best games available on the SNES. Its game mechanics are all but flawless, creating a smooth and exciting game that never slows down or gets boring. We can compliment the somewhat unique design, the essence of which was never quite captured by the numerous clones it spawned. And we can gush over all the little cool things, like the epic story and excellent rendition of the Overworld theme. ...

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 04, 2006

To be fair, I only played DKC3 because I wanted to complete the trilogy. Itís quite ironic that I actually had the nerve to pick up this one, considering how unimpressive I found the previous title. However, after I played through the first nonchalant levels of DKC3 and had same impressions that I had last time around but as I delved deeper into its offerings, I found DKC3 to be a quirky platform game that surpassed its younger brother by taking the good of DKC2. They then reinforced that wi...

Mega Man X: Command Mission (GameCube)

Mega Man X: Command Mission review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Mega Man has always been, traditionally, a side scrolling platformer which involved shooting other robots with your arm cannon until they explode. There have been few exceptions to this formula, and Command Mission is one of them.

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (PlayStation 2)

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Thereís a saying about rockstars that I think applies to everyone in a creative field; itís better to burnout than fade away. Perhaps itís time for Neversoft to step aside and let someone else carry the torch. Preceded by Tony Hawkís Pro Skater 1-4, Tony Hawkís Underground (THUG), and THUG2, American Wasteland is the seventh in this renowned skateboarding franchise, discounting cross-console remakes. After the outcries against the lunacy of THUG2, American Wasteland promised a return to the root...

Tech Romancer (Arcade)

Tech Romancer review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Capcom has always been a company to produce excellent and well known fighting games, like Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom. But every once in a while, the folks at Capcom will release a game that is released quietly and with little fanfare, and dies out without so much as a whisper. Tech Romancer is one of those games. Even though it never became a popular title like most other Capcom fighting games, this game is a fun alternative that will surely empty your pockets. Tech Romancer is a giant...

WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 (PlayStation 2)

WWE SmackDown vs. RAW 2006 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 02, 2006

Smackdown, first released on the Playstation console almost six years ago, has become THQ's flagship wrestling franchise. Since then, the game has been released annually, like traditional sports games. Last year's game, the original Smackdown vs RAW brought many new aspects to the table that shattered all predecessors,. Smackdown vs RAW 2006 promised to do the same. However, as great as the game is, it takes as many steps backwards as it does forwards.

Theme Hospital (PC)

Theme Hospital review (PC)

Reviewed on December 31, 2005

Theme Hospital is the kind of game one could own their entire life and never complete. In fact, Iíve restarted this sim almost every year since its release and have yet finished. The creativity alone keeps me coming back for seconds, but, regrettably, I always rediscover what turned me away in the first place. This is a title that could be installed, uninstalled, and even reinstalled, but the concluding level would forever remain elusive.

Castle of the Winds (PC)

Castle of the Winds review (PC)

Reviewed on December 30, 2005

Castle of the Winds is an archetypal Rogue-like dungeon-crawler, a forgotten relic of the bygone shareware days. Charmingly straightforward like other games of its ilk, it dispenses with trivialities like a convoluted plot, rich milieu, and stunning visuals. Briefly put, itís about killing things.

Battalion Wars (GameCube)

Battalion Wars review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 30, 2005

To be honest, my Game Boy Advance SP, once a knight in shining (quite literally, at last!) plastic, has seen little to no activity in recent months. In a sense, then, I can actually relate to the poor thing, but I digress.

Spider-Man: Web of Fire (Sega 32X)

Spider-Man: Web of Fire review (32X)

Reviewed on December 29, 2005

Occasionally, youíll hear about some nerd who shelled out their life savings on a certain rarity, something that theyíve been hunting down for years and have saved every single penny that theyíve earned so they could purchase this rarity. Now, when I hear about some bum who has burned away a small fortune on a video game, it stupefies me, especially, when the title that theyíve picked up turns out to be an absolute crock.

Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox)

Halo: Combat Evolved review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 29, 2005

Halo was the first must-play game on Microsoft's XBox, and to this day is is still seen as one of the best, if not the best game on the system. It is still refered to as the system's "killer app", and a model FPS four years later. You can't say that about many games.

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 28, 2005

Iím not Nintendoís #1 fan, but Iíve found myself siding with them more and more; the majority of gamers seem either increasingly hostile or increasingly indifferent to their efforts. I liked Mario Sunshine, I loved Wind Waker, and I could see Circle of the Moon just fine.

Hitman: Contracts (Xbox)

Hitman: Contracts review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 25, 2005

47 is a bona fide BADASS. In the short time it's been since he became an assassin, he has ignited a gang war in Hong Kong, faced a jaguar in the jungles of Columbia, had the BALLS to kill someone being escorted by U.N. troops, and went up against 132 ninjas just to ruin one man's shit. But even the baddest of badasses have their off days. This is apparent at the beginning of Hitman: Contracts, where a mission goes awry, and you witness 47 fleeing to his hotel room, half-dead.

Pariah (PC)

Pariah review (PC)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

Pariah should have been a contender. It could have done something special, because it was developed by the creators of Unreal Tournament 2003 and features a tight graphics engine and some cool customization options. But it isnít special, because ultimately, itís a generic and bland first person shooter that does absolutely nothing to capture the player's imagination. Pariahís star, the boring Doctor Jack Mason (who secretly wishes he was as cool as Half-Life's Gordon Freeman), trudges through va...

Evil Dead: Regeneration (PlayStation 2)

Evil Dead: Regeneration review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

The Evil Dead series is one of those things you either get or you donít. You either love it or you hate it. I, personally, love it. I even sat through ďBubba HotepĒ because Iím a huge fan of Bruce Cambell. Sorry if Iím talking about things youíve never heard of, but I just assume that a majority of people who would want to buy this game already know what Evil Dead is. Sadly, even the most loyal of fan boys are going to be disappointed with Evil Dead: Regeneration. Iím afraid to even imagine the ...

Wave Race 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on December 20, 2005

There have been times when I've picked up a gaming console at launch, fully expecting the best experience it could deliver. When the Super Nintendo launched, we received Super Mario World along with Pilot Wings and F-Zero on day one. Even that had seemed impressive to me. However, when the Nintendo 64 fell into greedy U.S. hands, everything fell into place. There was Mario in 3D for the first time, Pilot Wings had received a breath of fresh air, and most importantly of all, two months later a no...
