Sonic Gems Collection (GameCube)

Sonic Gems Collection review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 10, 2005

Gems Collection picked up where Mega Collection left off. The original compilation featured four of the top Genesis titles and a slew of not so great games. This one changes things by collecting some of the lesser-known games as well as a small selection of the better Game Gear titles. With the first ever console ports of the superb Sonic CD and the surprisingly entertaining Sonic Championship, this collection proved to me a lot more valuable than the previous Mega Collections, due to the fac...

Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut (GameCube)

Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 10, 2005

DX takes the original Dreamcast title Sonic Adventure, mixes it with some basic graphical brush ups, some old Game Gear games and a new mission mode to help ensnare gamers who missed out on the original adventure in 2000. Those who finished it back then will be disappointed, unless you really enjoyed it.(Emphasis on the ďreally.Ē) Truth be told, it does take the original game and adds on a heap of extra playtime by throwing all of these missions and Game Gear. It just sucks that n...

Atari Anthology (Xbox)

Atari Anthology review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 09, 2005

Damn, now THIS is a collection! 18 arcade classics and 67 Atari 2600 titles for a grand total of 85 games to choose from? INSANE!! They could've stopped there, but oh no, the developers went the extra mile; you'll also get a crap load of extras like scans of all the game's instruction manuals, promotional flyers, an interview with the creator of Pong (PONG!), and much, much more. And it's all yours for the super, duper low price of $20!!

Pinball (NES)

Pinball review (NES)

Reviewed on October 08, 2005

What a stupid, stupid game. Itís pointless, itís repetitive, itís old, itís simple, itís unrealistic, and itís short. If I wanted to play pinball, I would play pinball, right? Or I would at least play a game that simulates it well. Why would I want to dig up this old fossil? Stupid, right? Perhaps. I keep telling myself that, but something inside me just doesnít listen. And I keep playing it. And playing it. I shouldnít though. Itís not really a good game. Or at least it shouldnít be. But it is ...

The Legend of Zelda (NES)

The Legend of Zelda review (NES)

Reviewed on October 08, 2005

This review is not unbiased. This review will not try to claim that a critical look at every factor can tell you exactly how good the game is. Because it doesn't matter. Any minor quibbles or technical limitations are lost in the glorious essence contained within this cartridge. For in this cartridge lies the origins of the only videogame franchise I truly care about. And just as importantly, it contains the heart and soul of this Zelda franchise, far better than any of the other games. It...

Ninja Spirit (TurboGrafx-16)

Ninja Spirit review (TG16)

Reviewed on October 08, 2005

Herodotus writes that on the eve of battle with the Persian army, the Greek hero Dienekes was told that the Persian archers were so numerous that the mass of arrows, when they launched their volleys, blocked out the sun. Quite undaunted by this prospect, Dienekes responded: "Good. Then we shall have our battle in the shade." The boldness of Dienekes is shared by Moonlight, the hero of Ninja Spirit, though he faces more swords than arrows. His father murdered, Moonlight undertakes a missio...

Jurassic Park III: Park Builder (Game Boy Advance)

Jurassic Park III: Park Builder review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 07, 2005

Have you ever had the notion to create Jurassic Park? A place where there's adventure, excitement, and the chance for innocent civilians to be gobbled up by ancient reptiles. Surely, the anticipation of seeing extinct, rarely viewed prehistoric monstrosities coming back to life is of some interest. I'd be willing to pay to watch a Tyrannosaurus stalk its prey and maliciously feast upon their guts like they were Kibbles 'n' Bits. Well with the help of Konami, there's a park management sim for all...

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath (Xbox)

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 07, 2005

The Wild West is a staple fantasy setting for youth. Before we graduate to mature things like lasers and starcrusiers with hyperdrives and screens that scroll with technobabble, we entertain ourselves with simpler stories of simpler days. A cowboy is all the long arm the law needs; with his six-shooter and trusty steed, he brings pesky outlaws to justice before riding off into the dusty sunset. Stranger's Wrath provides that but in a world that's....well, odd.

Viewtiful Joe (PlayStation 2)

Viewtiful Joe review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 07, 2005

Capcom certainly seems to have a thing for producing cel-shaded games lately; Auto Modellista, Killer 7, and Viewtiful Joe. Being a loyal Capcom fan, I bought them all. The first two are best compared to a cheap thrill ride at a church sponsored carnival. Viewtiful Joe on the other hand, is one of the best action-based platformers I have played in quite some time. Now, before you pro-Joes and anti-Joes start throwing praises or bricks, read that last sentence a little more closely. There are two...

Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament 2004 (Game Boy Advance)

Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament 2004 review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 07, 2005

Kids today are playing Yu-Gi-Oh!, the hot new collectible card game which simulates battles of dark magic between pagan sorcerers. Or to be more precise, the card game simulates a card game that simulates magical battles. (That probably got unnecessarily confusing, but thereís a Japanese cartoon involved.) Typically, to obtain these cards one would have to go out to the store and purchase numerous and costly booster packs, but Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship Tournament 2004 offers the card game ...

Enduro Racer (Sega Master System)

Enduro Racer review (SMS)

Reviewed on October 07, 2005

In this game of endurance, you'll be pitted against all kinds of obstacles that'll push your motorbike skills to its limits. Take for example the temple track; it starts off pretty easy, jumping off of ramps over boiling lava, but it quickly becomes a challenge. You'll enter a long hallway filled with ancient drawings, and booby-traps galore will suddenly pop out from all over: arrows fall from the ceiling, buzz saws slide out from the walls, and spikes pop out from certain tiles of the floor.

DDR Extreme (PlayStation 2)

DDR Extreme review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 06, 2005

Remember the time you were so desperate that you threw whatever leftovers you had into the frying pan and hoped something edible came out? Well, Konami has cooked up DDR Extreme in much the same way, and while starved fanatics will most certainly devour anything DDR, it goes down with a distinctly bitter aftertaste. More than any of its predecessors, DDR Extreme is a half-hashed recipe teeming with more unharmonious flavors than a milk and orange juice burrito with a vinaigrette truffle sauce. T...

Youíve just been shot...repeatedly...by the man you hate most in the universe, a bastard named Nohman. Bloodís everywhere. You canít move, you canít breathe, you can barely even think, and every thought you have is devoted to wishing Nohman burns in the deepest, darkest, demon-dominated corner of Hell.

Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 05, 2005

"Humankind cannot gain anything, without first giving up something in return. To obtain something, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one and only truth." All Fullmetal Alchemist fans have heard that quote before -- Most can probably even hear Alphonse's voice as they read it. It basically sums up how Alchemy works in the Fullmetal Alchemist manga and anime works. People who have stud...

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (PC)

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis review (PC)

Reviewed on October 04, 2005

It is with much longing nostalgia that I painfully admit that the golden era of point 'n' click adventures have long passed. I can say without much exaggeration that during the console-starved eighties, the genre reached its peak in popularity, perhaps only eclipsed in the early-to-mid nineties when the fame of Sierra and Lucas Arts were on par to current giants such as Square or Enix. Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is one of the finer specimens of adventure games that was born fr...

I donít blame Mario for being pissed. I mean, if a giant ape came up, grabbed my girlfriend and ran away with her under his fat sweaty arm, Iíd be pretty cheesed off too. Extracting revenge for this heinous act, Mario has kidnapped Donkey Kong and mysteriously managed to the lock the ape up. Heís also separated Donkey from his only son and when the brave little tyke sets out to rescue is father, Mario tries to kill him by throwing little crocodiles at him.

Tekken Tag Tournament (PlayStation 2)

Tekken Tag Tournament review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 04, 2005

Before committing themselves to a Tekken 4, Namco has released a tag-team variation of its prominent fighting series befittingly entitled Tekken Tag Tournament (triple T, if you will). The concept is quite simple: roundup every Tekken character, render them in 3D-pixelated heaven, and then pit them against each other in teams of two. For all intentional purposes, this semi-sequel compilation is a ďTekken All-StarsĒ that follows the crossover trend of Capcomís prolific and seemingly never-ending ...
