Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (GameCube)

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Everyone wants to take something back. They want to rewind that one crucial moment of their life where the school bully threw them in a dumpster, sentencing them to a lifetime of torment from their peers, or undoing that time where they were pantsed in front of the cheerleading squad. Or maybe they had initially hoped that their brief stroll across the rooftops of a dusty desert city hadn't ended in a miscalculated jump into the gnashing teeth of some kind of rooftop-mounted wheat-harvesting dev...

Xenogears (PlayStation)

Xenogears review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Two tailors arrive at a palace. Sly and scheming, they offer to spin garments for the Emperor out of a fabric so delicate that it appears invisible to all those too dull to appreciate its inestimable quality. The Emperor pays them and gives them the gold thread they request. When the tailors come to fit the fabric, they drape the “clothes” over the Emperor and place him before a mirror. The Emperor, sweating bullets now, seeing nothing but unwilling to make a fool of himself, says, “Yes, this is...

Spartan: Total Warrior (GameCube)

Spartan: Total Warrior review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Creative Assembly is a company somewhat well-known solely for their Total War series of historic RTS games on the PC; arguably some of the better RTS’ around, the Total War games rank only under Starcraft and Europa Universalis II in the hearts of many. As such, it cast doubt in my mind when I learned that those crazy Brits were planning a console-bound manly brawler rendition of Ancient Greece. It was multiplatform between all three systems. Multiplatform games usually suck, with...

Kirby Air Ride (GameCube)

Kirby Air Ride review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

In the past, there have been several great racing game spin-offs for popular game series. At the top of ladder, are games like Diddy Kong Racing, and Super Mario Kart. When Kirby's Air Ride was announced, all of the pieces seemed to be in place. Who wouldn't want to play a racing game featuring everyone's favorite Star Warrior, Kirby? The idea of racing through the world on a warp star, and copying enemies' abilities to use against your opponents sounded great. Unfortunately, the game was disapp...

Trauma Center: Under the Knife (DS)

Trauma Center: Under the Knife review (DS)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Trauma Center is one of those staple games that becomes pretty much a household word if you're talking about the DS. At first, it's pretty hard to tell why - it looks like a hentai game that tries to make the touchscreen look useful. While it is a blatant example of Nintendo whoring out the DS's touchscreen to all takers, Trauma Center manages to be one of the best games for the system, and is definitely unique - if only for the fact that instead of killing random people, you're saving their liv...

Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)

Animal Crossing: Wild World review (DS)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

I'll be the first to admit it: I fell head over heels for the cutesy charm of Animal Crossing on the Gamecube. Its simple, yet meaningful tasks paved the way for a digital experience unlike any other video game I've ever played. Upon hearing of a DS version in the works, I was simply elated. Portable fossil unearthing, fruit planting, and house customizing action sounds excruciatingly irresistible; and it is, for the most part. A couple flaws keep this one from transcending the original (al...

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 08, 2005

I still remember the day hearing that there was going to be a 3D Mario game. I figured it was just a rumor, I enjoyed Mario games, but a 3D Mario game called Super Mario 64, sounded like a joke to me. Still I imagined how great it would be, and when the day came where Mario 64 was released, that dream was reality except better. I was actually playing a 3D game with my favorite character. Now that fantastic game, has been brought to a little something we called our “Nintendo DS”, and has been adv...

Star Wars: Battlefront II (PSP)

Star Wars: Battlefront II review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 08, 2005

The first Star Wars game on the PSP. Now man, wasn't I excited. Since I was a huge fan of the first battlefront game, was this one going to live up to it's title? I must say I was slightly disappointed when I bought this game. So here I'm going to dig into this title and talk about this shooter game and here we go.

Stuntman (PlayStation 2)

Stuntman review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 07, 2005

Reflection crashed onto the gaming scene many years ago with its slick, innovative hit Driver. Years later, Stuntman became Reflection's next attempt at providing gamers with a different kind of 4-wheel entertainment. The buzz about the game was good—let’s face it, taking on the role of a professional stunt driver is a hell of an idea. But like a brail traffic sign, some ideas look so much better on paper.

Gunstar Heroes (Genesis)

Gunstar Heroes review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 06, 2005

Much has been said about Treasure’s classic Gunstar Heroes. Some claim that it’s a renowned title of a wealthy calibre, while others have criticised it as a direct rip-off from Konami’s famous Contra series. Suggesting such a comment is a rather fair complaint due to the fact that Treasure were actually formed from a minute group of developers who broke off from Konami’s scope to form their own team. However, no matter how you wince and whine about the similarities between the two (which go as f...

Pushover (Atari ST)

Pushover review (AST)

Reviewed on December 05, 2005

When I first came on this site I wasn't surprised that no one had reviewed this obscure little game. I wasn't even surprised that the Atari ST didn't show up on the list of machines. But that doesn't mean that I liked it.

Neverwinter Nights (2002) (PC)

Neverwinter Nights (2002) review (PC)

Reviewed on December 04, 2005

A city lies helpless before a virulent plague. Ancient demons rise to walk the lands. Farmers' wives have been kidnapped by giants. The venerable defenders of justice, right, truth, and kittens are powerless in the face of these trials. The solution? A first-level Dungeons and Dragons character!

Gunstar Heroes (Genesis)

Gunstar Heroes review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 04, 2005

I was never a bully as a child, but when my friends and I played videogames I was seen as the tough one. While they were struggling to defeat a giant squirrel in Donkey Kong Country that does practically nothing I was absolutely dominating run n guns such as Contra: Hard Corps and Mega Turrican. But after they got their hands on Treasure’s Gunstar Heroes their view on the run n gun genre changed. They dug its easiness and simplicity, but failed to realize that it actu...

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (GameCube)

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 03, 2005

Given that I have an almost obsessive love of the fantasy genre, it comes as something of a surprise to my friends that I have never read the Lord of the Rings trilogy in its entirety. In fact, I never read any of it until after I had seen The Fellowship of the Ring (which was all of about a month before The Two Towers hit theatres.) To this day, although I love the movies, I've never managed to plow through all three of the books. It's on my "I'll do it when I have time"...

Shining Force II (Genesis)

Shining Force II review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 03, 2005

I’ve played a lot of games over the years. There aren’t many that I remember, and an even smaller number goes to the games that are so great I can talk about them strictly by memory. Shining Force 2 is one of those games. Matter of fact it’s the game as far as I'm concerned. I held onto it for almost ten years, played it over twenty times from start to finish and still jones for it more than any other game I’ve lost.

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

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

Reviewed on November 27, 2005

I'll be honest with you: I'm a big fan of the Dragon Quest series, often famed for having a rather simple storyline, a "boring" battle system, and graphics that most people can only describe as "shit". In fact, I'm such a big fan that I'm often labeled "fanboy" by a surprising number of people. That being said, it should be no surprise that I was salivating over the screenshots of the eighth entry in the series as I anticipated the North American release.

Timeball (TurboGrafx-16)

Timeball review (TG16)

Reviewed on November 25, 2005

Some bad games can be relatively tolerated to a certain extent. Nickelodeon GUTS was pathetic but it was rather funny to make ordinary kids pull off flips that would make any Olympic acrobat cry like a baby. Dark Castle was a stinker and a half but the sheer hilarity of playing as an escaped vegetable gave it an incredibly small sliver of merit. Some bad games can do that and sometime...

Mortal Kombat: Deception (PlayStation 2)

Mortal Kombat: Deception review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 24, 2005

I have a lot of qualms about recent fighting games. Back in the nineties, they were at the top of the industry. Arcades were littered with teenage kids lined up in front of a machine, pounding out the quarters just to digitally smack around any challenger and I was one of them. I remember how involved I became with them. I stood in line, I bought the hint books and I studied the moves. I paid a lot of money and I spent a lot of time just to be the best at every new, kick ass fighting game that c...

Castlevania: Curse of Darkness review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 23, 2005

Honestly, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from Castlevania: Curse of Darkness. The interesting additions to the game intrigued me a bit, but I originally got it simply because I wanted to see what a 3D Castlevania game played like, whether it was gonna be good or bad. Yeah, I'm crazy. But when I finally had the chance to play CoD, well, I wasn't impressed. However, it quickly grew on me the more I played, turning out to be quite an enjoyable action-adventure title that happen...
