Soul Blazer (SNES)

Soul Blazer review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 22, 2006

Some people call Zelda an action/RPG. Although Zelda has elements of both genres, it is much more than that, and is in reality a completely different genre. Soul Blazer, often compared to Zelda by those that have actually heard of it, is not. It is a simple blend of action and RPG, combining the two rather than creating something new. Such an attempt, blending two incredibly different styles of gaming, seems doomed to failure. Yet, despite the seeming impossibility, I find Soul Blazer to be a s...

Fallout 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

World War III nearly destroyed all life on Earth. No one bothers to remember the specifics now; theyíre trivialities, unimportant details.

Splatterhouse 2 (Genesis)

Splatterhouse 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

I donít like Splatterhouse 2. I was planning to mock its sloppy control and limited moveset. I was planning to attack its stricter-than-Altered Beast linearity. I was even planning to poke fun at the sanitized pastel ichor that bursts from every beast (a far cry from the originalís frightening decor). With the above palette of problems, I was planning to paint the most unflattering picture of Splatterhouse 2 that the internet has ever seen.

Cave Story (PC)

Cave Story review (PC)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

Cave Story is definitely the right game, but it's in the wrong place, at the wrong time. If you time-warped (again) back to 1990 and released it on the Mega Drive, the time you returned to wouldn't be the rubbish one we know. It'd be an endless pastel-hued Age of the Pixel, where men express themselves in only sprites and double-jumps and catchy 16-bit tunes. Nobody'd remember Mario or the Green Hill Zone or the rain or tetrominoes or El Viento or any of that crap; they'd remember ...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on January 20, 2006

A long, long time ago on the Dreamcast there was a game called Shenmue. Not many people remember much about Shenmue, but it was a game where you played as a young Chinese man attempting to avenge his father's death by buying furniture for his house. While the concept was nonsensical, the game sold, as would its XBox sequel. Enter Nintendo. With the doomed failure that was the N64, Nintendo decided that it had to do something to boost sales, and released Doubutsu No Mori, a direct ripoff of Shen...

Fallout (PC)

Fallout review (PC)

Reviewed on January 18, 2006

Until now, there were no dreams of the future. The world as you know it has been confined to the massive bunker, Vault 13. Inside the redundant maze of sterile hallways and fluorescent tubes, all that mattered was keeping the vault running for future generations. Even that task has become a hopeless cause. The water purification system in Vault 13 has broken, and without new water chip, your people will die.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Symphony (DS)

Fullmetal Alchemist: Dual Symphony review (DS)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

Fullmetal Alchemist has become a somewhat popular anime and manga series on American soil lately. However, it is far more popular in Japan, as is obvious by the movie released that has yet to obtain an American release date, as well as the various Fullmetal Alchemist games released for previous handhelds, that will never make it here. The latest game in the series, Dual Sympathy for the Nintendo DS looks to be sealed with the same fate. Considering that the Nintendo DS has no region block, impor...

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection (Xbox)

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 16, 2006

In a sense, Street Fighter Anniversary Collection should be the ultimate 2-D fighting experience. Not only does it include Hyper Street Fighter 2, a compilation of all of the SF2 versions into one but, it also contains one of the best ďnew-schoolĒ 2-D fighters: Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. Not only do we get two of the greatest fighting games of all time, we get the full-length 1994 anime movie. Although, this may not enthral the majority of us, a handful of fanatics will be enthused.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 15, 2006

You can imagine my surprise when I played this game for the first time since I was a kid. You mean this was supposed to be Mario's biggest rival? This was the game the Nintendo haters trumpeted? Well, ok, I take that back. This isn't a bad game after all. Or, at least most of it isn't. But it's also not exactly great either. Or, once again, at least most of it isn't. It's a game that doesn't know what it wants to be, trying to move in too many directions at once. And while some o...

Super Metroid (SNES)

Super Metroid review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 15, 2006

While I may not enjoy them, I at least understand why other people like certain games that I can't stand playing. The Otogi series' simplistic brawling has always rubbed me the wrong way, for instance, yet I see the allure of exploring its gorgeous locales and purifying things with a big sword. Similarly, while I don't like Streets of Rage 2 thanks to its cookie-cutter cretins, I can see why a game that lets you punch your way through everything from a baseball field to a pirate ship while liste...

Resident Evil 4 (PlayStation 2)

Resident Evil 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 14, 2006

Call it astonishing. Call it mind blowing. Call it the game of the week, the year or maybe even the decade. Call it the best Resident Evil yet; no one is going to argue. While Capcom may have only clawed at the face of the survival horror genre with its previous installments, RE 4 full on drives a nail into its heart. This isnít a sequel that dabbles in what previously worked or a sequel that smothers you with irrelevant new ideas. This game is evolutionódisturbing, haunting, brill...

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie (Xbox 360)

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie review (X360)

Reviewed on January 13, 2006

As I stood in front of the Xbox 360 section at the store, King Kongís menacing mug shot on the cover of Peter Jacksonís King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie (what a terribly messy title) stood out amongst the covers of the other games on the Xbox 360. His sharp white fangs immediately grabbed my attention, and his angry eyes did a great job of pumping me up for the disc he was so preciously guarding. I was really excited when I got the game home; anticipating ripping and tearing thro...

GunValkyrie review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 13, 2006

You know what we need more of in video games? Hot, flying chicks with big guns that get naked at least once during the game. Yeah, yeah, we have Steam Hearts, but we need more, damn it! Well, someone over at Smilebit thought it was a groovy idea to have hot, flying chicks with big guns in a video game, and they ended up making this title: Gunvalkyrie. You'd think having hot, flying chicks with big guns in a video game would be enough, but they went the distance; they've included gi...

Feel the Magic: XY/XX (DS)

Feel the Magic: XY/XX review (DS)

Reviewed on January 13, 2006

You bought this game? Are you crazy? You absolutely are not! You just made the best move in your whole life. This game will be the game of the year. Now Feel the Magic is a really unique game, and it really takes use of the DSís abilities like the touch screen and microphone. This game was released late in the year of 2004, and was created by the Sonic Team, which is known for some great games.

DDR Extreme 2 review (PS2)

I used to walk by those kids playing Dance Dance Revolution and I just could never figure out how those kids could go so fast and move their feet quicker than anyone in that game. I would never play it for I was to embarrassed, but then I saw the version for my house and I just had to have it. I used this game for a workout and for fun so lets talk about it.

Mohawk and Headphone Jack (SNES)

Mohawk and Headphone Jack review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 12, 2006

Over the years Iíve played a countless amount of bad videogames. In the matter of fact Iíve played so many terrible ones that I donít have the slightest clue of which one is the worst. But Black Pearlís Mohawk and Headphone Jack is the ultimate example of a great game gone bad. It has traits that have made games in the past awesome, but they are butchered so badly to the point that the game is unplayable. It just might be the game that comes in dead last. And thatís saying a lot.

Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix review (GCN)

It was only a matter of time. Mario has infiltrated a great number of wacky genres in his quest to spread the empire of Nintendo, and it was indeed only a matter of time before he started shaking his ass on the dancefloor.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge review (PC)

Reviewed on January 12, 2006

Freedom is the taste of grog early in the morning, that fuzzy feeling you get making nobles walk the plank and even the joys of countless veneral diseases as you play with the cabin boy. Not having to worry about hygiene since there is no such thing, fencing with cutlasses that can not cut anything but may score you a mean tetanus infection, and saying Arrr! a lot. Who did not wish, at least once in their lifetime, to become a pirate?

Lady Sia (Game Boy Advance)

Lady Sia review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 12, 2006

Even being a girl, I tend to avoid "girls-oriented" games, but when you see something like Lady Sia, it's hard to resist. A fantasy world, a blond chick with a ponytail, a sword, magical powers -- and that's all it takes to catch my attention. The plot is essentially on the standard side, Sia being the princess of a mythical continent invaded by the T'soas, a race of big humanoid rats. Her so-called allies of the neighbouring kingdoms betray her, so she ends up having to save the land on her own...

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 12, 2006

Poor Konami. When they designed the PlayStation game, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, did they have any idea that all of their future vampire slaying epics would have trouble living up to it? Hey, it is possible. SOTN is gold; a masterpiece, a testament to the gods of creativity and platforming goodness.
