Condemned: Criminal Origins (Xbox 360)

Condemned: Criminal Origins review (X360)

Reviewed on February 06, 2006

I think we can all agree that the Xbox 360 launch was disappointing. There were decent games to play, but nearly every game on launch day was either a port, franchise, or licensed property. The system was billed as unique and original, but none of the games on it were, outside of Kameo and Condemned: Criminal Origins. Games like Perfect Dark Zero and Need for Speed: Most Wanted are certainly entertaining titles, but they don't offer anything really new outside of a fe...

WRC: World Rally Championship (PlayStation 2)

WRC: World Rally Championship review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2006

Rallying is one of the most demanding and dangerous motor sports on Earth, involving some of the world’s best (and bravest) drivers battling against horrible weather conditions, tight roads and slippery surfaces. The World Rally Championship takes place throughout the year in fourteen of the world’s most diverse and beautiful locations, from the snow and ice of wintry Sweden, to the dust and dirt of the scorching Kenyan Rally, its an extremely exhilarating, yet potentially life-threatening car s...

Call of Duty 2 (Xbox 360)

Call of Duty 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

Introduction - The only World War II first person shooters I really ever got into were the original Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor Underground on the PS. Those games were great for their times. With each passing year, WWII games kept hitting the market through the Ps2 era, but I was never inclined to play them because they seemed like the same rehashed games. Thus, I was a little skeptical at the first announcement of Call of Duty 2 for the Xbox 360. The thing that really changed my mind was ...

Madden NFL 06 (Xbox 360)

Madden NFL 06 review (X360)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

Introduction – I have always been a football junkie, and every year I have always preferred the Madden series. So when I heard it was being released the Xbox 360 with next-generation graphics I was genuinely excited. I remember how good the Madden 2001 was as a Ps2 launch title. So, I figured Madden 06 would deliver the same way on the first of the next-gen consoles. It turned out, that Madden 06 really isn’t next-gen.

JFK Reloaded (PC)

JFK Reloaded review (PC)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

Here's a buzzphrase we are all familiar with: "Murder Simulator". Remember all the political hubbub and the general brouhaha surrounding video games in America's tender Post-Columbine period? This phrase in particular was thrown around more than the others to show soccer moms how depraved little Billy's games have gotten lately. Games haven't gotten any cleaner, and poverty-row developers haven't gotten tired of deliberately courting controversy to secure free widespread ad campaigns for the...

Donkey Kong 64 (Nintendo 64)

Donkey Kong 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

Back in the day, Donkey Kong was content with kidnapping damsels and tossing barrels at plumbers. Thankfully, starting on the Super Nintendo console, he picked up on a new habit: Starring in exciting platform games. In truth, he was only playable in one of the three Donkey Kong Country games, but that's besides the point. What is important is that time has shown if you create a platform game in which the playable cast consists of monkeys, and the bad guy is a pirate, scientist, or boxer -- depen...

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete (PlayStation)

Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 04, 2006

A boy on a quest, an attractive love interest, and a world in peril certainly aren’t original RPG themes, but Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete contains all these clichés. Originally for the Sega CD, and later making appearances on the Gameboy Advance and Sega Saturn, this dated game shines on the PSone for a variety of reasons despite the lack of any real innovation. Honestly though, can you expect anything other than old-school goodness from a classic originally released back in 1992?...

Blitz: The League (PlayStation 2)

Blitz: The League review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 03, 2006

I’m not a big football guy. I couldn’t tell you where the “pocket” is or what to use an “eye formation” for. I don’t know the difference between a fullback and a halfback. That's the reason I absolutely loved Blitz: The League. Blitz makes no attempt at providing all the complexities of other football games, but rather creates entertainment through brilliant simplicity.

Contra: Shattered Soldier (PlayStation 2)

Contra: Shattered Soldier review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 02, 2006

In a generation where 2D games belong to Gameboys, DSs and PSPs, it’s always nice and refreshing to see a 2D game on a home console. After making an attempt at 3D gaming (and failing horribly), Contra returns to form in Shattered Soldier. Taking notes from Contra on the NES, Super C and other 2D Contra games, Shattered Soldier also hits the nail on the head, with a wide array of weapons and controller throwing difficulty. Ladies and gentlemen, our bad boy is back.

Puyo Pop Fever (DS)

Puyo Pop Fever review (DS)

Reviewed on February 01, 2006

I first experienced Puyo Pop on the GBA years ago. I don’t know what made it so captivating, but lining up multicolored balls of goop was incredibly addictive. The campy storyline and goofy characters only managed to pull me into the game more. I embraced these nostalgic feelings as I loaded up Puyo Pop Fever. My thoughts were filled with happiness, glee, and even expectation (feelings I rarely get from video games these days). These feelings were crushed instantly by the music tha...

Buzz! The Music Quiz (PlayStation 2)

Buzz! The Music Quiz review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 31, 2006

If you’re a student in the UK, chances are that you’ve come home drunk on a Saturday night and found yourself watching Quizmania on ITV. For those not in the know, Quizmania is a four hour long game show that runs on throughout the early hours of the morning. It is the true epitome of crap television, just as Buzz: The Music Quiz is for video games.

Meteos (DS)

Meteos review (DS)

Reviewed on January 30, 2006

Planet Meteo is a big bully! While other planets all live in peace and harmony, this evil planet has a chip on its shoulder. More than just a chip, actually. Meteo has bricks on its shoulders. Multi-coloured bricks, called meteos, that the planet sees fit to hurl into the galaxy. And not just randomly, either. No, these bricks are launched at other planets where they pile up until the planet is engulfed in a mountain of them. When this happens, the meteos go nova, and the planet is destroyed.

Legend of Mana (PlayStation)

Legend of Mana review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 29, 2006

People are always complaining about the lack of originality in videogames. Playing what is essentially the same game over and over again seems almost impossible to avoid considering how few unique titles there truly are. Legend of Mana takes some stabs at originality, but the original features are what makes this game far less enjoyable than it’s predecessor, Secret of Mana. Who says creativity is always a good thing?

Secret of Mana (SNES)

Secret of Mana review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 29, 2006

I'm really starting to wonder what's with Squaresoft. Many call them the best RPG developer, while others claim they're an overrated piece of fecal matter. Me, I'm still confused. The Final Fantasy series has proven to be a deep and breathtaking series, constantly reinventing itself and consistently providing a quality experience. Yet Chrono Trigger, often considered to be the best RPG of all time, let me down severely, being nothing more than a bland game doing nothing special. And now Sec...

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 29, 2006

Seldom have I seen a re-release that makes you feel like you're playing the game for the first time all over again. This is one of those re-releases. The original Devil May Cry 3 was famous for it's stylish combat and grueling difficulty, keeping even the seasoned Devil May Cry veteran on his toes. The Special Edition, however, has made many revisions to the gameplay and overall presentation of the game.

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness (PlayStation 2)

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 27, 2006

Following the positive experience I recieved from Lament of Innocence I had no qualms about making a blind purchase for Curse of Darkness. Lament’s brutal combos, intense action and lush castle made it one of the greatest action games I’ve ever played. That led me to have at least a little faith in Konami and to shell out fifty dollars without any research. I brought it home, played it for a good while and everything seemed perfect. But slowly it crept up on me, like passing...

Shining Force Neo (PlayStation 2)

Shining Force Neo review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 25, 2006

How wonderfully dreadful that publishers such as Sega can shun the developers that made their games worthy in the first place, but still churn out sequels and counterparts to them. Sequels, mind you, that make no effort to recreate Shining Force’s strategy, luster or quality. If this is Sega’s way of trying to cash in on the popularity of Baldur’s Gate or Warcraft, evolving it from something we know and love, then I must regrettably remove myself as a Shining Force fan girl.

Infected (PSP)

Infected review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 24, 2006

I think there’s one problem with the PSP that most of us reviewers are ignoring: we don’t know what we want with it. Since the technology is so advanced, we want a console experience in our hands. We want the best graphics, the best gameplay, and the best stories. We want it all. But at the same time, we want quick, breezy games with fast load times, so when we’re waiting in line or for the bus, we can just turn it on and play a game. It doesn't seem like we can have both desires solved by a sin...

There are two types of people in the world, those who love Tekken and those who love Virtual Fighter. I don’t care who you are, you fit into one of those categories.

You’re in the back seat of a car with an animal at the wheel, steering through unforgiving rain traveling down an unknown road. You’re moving from your old life - no more large city, no more long job times, no more long distances between destinations, no more humans. That’s ‘bleh’, not appealing, not interesting. No, you’d rather live in the relaxed town of… where? You decide. You name where you want to go. Spiral? Sizzler? Gootown? Doesn’t matter. That’s where you’re going, where this unknown r...
