Metal Slug 4 & 5 (Xbox)

Metal Slug 4 & 5 review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 05, 2005

Metal Slug 4 is HARD, therefore it deserves an introduction. For the last couple of years, I've heard a lot of negative things about this game, like how totally different it is from previous Slugs, or that it's too easy. Now that I've finally had the chance to play the title in this double pack, I'm stumped. It's not the plague that almost everyone seems to claim it is, and for the most part, it's basically on par with its predecessors.

SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom (Xbox)

SVC Chaos: SNK vs. Capcom review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 04, 2005

What SVC Chaos does is offer a few hours of fun for the hardcore fan. If you’ve never played any of Capcom’s better efforts then stop reading this review, go out to your nearest game store and pick up a copy of Capcom vs. SNK 2. If you’ve already played that awesome game and want to delve further into the series, then picking SVC Chaos may satisfy your cravings. However, if you wanted more grooves, a cool character ensemble and awesome bosses, then you will be sorely disappointed by Pl...

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on September 04, 2005

They say nothing in this world's perfect, and I suppose that's true. But there are some things out there that seem to be so flawless, so impressive, so ingenious down to the tiniest detail, that we can't help but declare them, if not perfect, then perfect enough. Take Super Mario Bros 3 for example. Not only was it light years ahead of anything that came before it, but it was light years ahead of everything that came afterwards as well. It seems like Nintendo took every detail that I think i...

Strikers 1945 Plus (Arcade)

Strikers 1945 Plus review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 03, 2005

Over the past few years there has been a void in my gamer soul where the shooters used to be. I felt destined to be counted among the lost; that vast pool of estranged old-schoolers, disenchanted by style-over-substance shooters, and forever reminiscing about Konami codes and R-Type machines at the mall. It seems my salvation has come, and it appeared as a simple airplane. No advanced spacecraft, heat-seeking lasers, or physics defying maneuvers. Just propellers and a machine gun.

Gradius III (SNES)

Gradius III review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 03, 2005

An aspect commonly overlooked in classic gaming is how solitary the experience is. Like lonely teenagers in a basement, the heroes of Super Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog work in complete isolation. While they may be working to save the world, there is little representation of this in their respective games. Outside of fun, the only reward for playing is rescuing pixelated princesses and fuzzy animals. These games rely solely on the strength of their gameplay to attract ...

The Sims (PC)

The Sims review (PC)

Reviewed on September 03, 2005

I don’t get it. I don’t think I’ll ever get it. What the hell is so fun about watching someone else live their life? Why are we obsessed with reality shows like “Hogan Knows Best”, “Nick And Jessica” and “The Osbournes”? Have we suddenly become so desperate to leave our own lives that we will blindly follow someone else’s? I can’t answer that question, I really can’t. So if you sit there and ask me “Why is The Sims so popular” or “Why are there so many expansion packs and sequels to this game” I...

Viewpoint (Genesis)

Viewpoint review (GEN)

Reviewed on September 03, 2005

Since the Genesis is home to a bijillion shoot-em-ups, it really takes something interesting to make one of these titles stand out from the crowd; Divine Sealing has a "women feel pain when their clothes get removed" gimmick, Metallic Uniframe Super Hybrid Armor has whatever the hell that game was known for, and in this case, Viewpoint has a unique perspective. Unfortunately, this game's selling point ends up screwing with the gameplay, making a rather average shoot-em-up pr...

If you want to give Renovation credit for one thing when they released Whip Rush 2222 A.D. for the Genesis in 1990, praise them for knowing how to copy from good games.

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (GameCube)

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction review (GCN)

Reviewed on September 01, 2005

He is the most physically powerful being ever imagined, the living embodiment of mortal strength. Not faster than a speeding bullet, but far more powerful than a locomotive, and capable of leaping miles in a single bound. His enemies are legion; as strong as they are numerous, infinitely persistent. But never enough. Before him, people flee. Behind him, cities crumble. Not a villain, not a hero, not anything in between. He is a force of nature given flesh. Random. Fierce. Unstoppable. Irresistib...

Axelay review (SNES)

When it comes to this genre, I can safely say that I am no expert. Taking advice from veterans and shooter connoisseurs and after being chronically depressed by the marathon levels in Space Megaforce, I came across Laxe.

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise (NES)

Secret Scout in the Temple of Demise review (NES)

Reviewed on August 26, 2005

You find yourself in a dense jungle, just one pudgy little boy scout all alone. Walking along, you see a lone savage, crouching atop a temple. He lunges at you, knife in hand. Your only hope is to stave him off with your kung fu knowledge, kicking him mercilessly until he falls. But beware, as some, um, things are flying at you as well. I think they're traffic cones. Skillfully weave your way through these hazardous safety cones and destroy the vile savage. Free to move onward, you find a...

Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum (NES)

Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum review (NES)

Reviewed on August 26, 2005

I laughed when I first saw the box art to this game. Hopefully most of you know of Flash Gordon, the old pulp sc-fi hero who fought Ming the Merciless and the subject of a 1980 movie. This movie is, objectively, rather poor, but is still incredibly fun to watch. You can't help but smile at the horrid lines ("What do you mean, 'Flash Gordon approaching?'"), the hammed up acting, the blatant 1950s look, the brilliant cheesy yet heart pounding theme song, and the goofy plot. Well, it's obvious ...

Conker: Live & Reloaded (Xbox)

Conker: Live & Reloaded review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2005

Conker: Live and Reloaded will be a real treat for those who dug his original N64 outing. I never played it but I was hounded constantly about its hilarious take on adult themes in a cartoon like environment. Due to my uncaring attitude towards the N64, I never experienced the original Conker for myself and for years was barraged by my sixty-four fan friends about how great Conker’s Bad Fur Day was. I won’t lie, placing adult themes and situations in a cartoon world is a rather original conce...

Virtua Fighter 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 22, 2005

An odd thing happened to me today. As I was sitting at my computer, working on this and working on that and wishing I had something better to do on a Friday night, I saw a funny thing lying in my game rack. Sitting right at the bottom, neatly wedged between my copy of Grandia that doesn’t work because I got Vaseline on it and the copy of Wuthering Heights which will never be returned to my 12th grade English teacher because I don’t give enough of a damn, sat Virtua Fighter 4.

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 19, 2005

Nothing beats a nice walk around the jungle. You have the beautiful rain that you appreciate for its glory as you watch it slowly drip down on your visor, the planet's various plants that look so welcoming, the peaceful creatures that are simply trying to make ends meet, but then suddenly the music shifts from relaxing tunes to upbeat music that the Space Pirates always play everytime they make their entrance. Ahh the same space pirates that feared Samus in their previous meeting on Zebes, whe...

Chessmaster (PlayStation 2)

Chessmaster review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 19, 2005

As a reviewer, I think the highest praise I can get is to hear someone tell me that, because they read my review, they feel compelled to go out and buy the game. There’s just something about having that sort of influence, that ability to impact someone else’s perspective…priceless. Makes me feel like I’m doing something right.

Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday (Genesis)

Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 18, 2005

It's the 25th century, and as you would expect, much has changed. Space travel is a reality, and the Earth's surrounding planets have not only been terraformed, but found supporting their own respective lifeforms and even the various groups of asteroids that float willy-nilly around the solar system now have established colonies springing from them. Humanity has grown beyond the boundaries of the Earth - which is just as well, seeing as it is close to uninhabitable, thanks to the toxic dump it h...

Baku Baku Animal (Sega Master System)

Baku Baku Animal review (SMS)

Reviewed on August 18, 2005

The majority of puzzle games are low quality rip-offs of some the genre’s finest titles. Most of them are mere imitators that don’t even come close to the sheer quality of the original title such as Oh My God ( Atlus’s Puyo Puyo clone) shows us that. Others try hard to push different a method of stacking blocks forward but fails rather miserably. Baku Baku Animal is one example of this as it produces a rather different approach to the puzzle game but proves to be dull, awkward and repet...

Gitaroo-Man review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 18, 2005

I have always hated references to "those crazy Japanese." It's a stereotypical comment that pigeon-holes an incredibly diverse culture. So what if they have heated toilet seats and talking toasters? We have hot dogs and Marilyn Manson. Every time I think I'm making headway with this argument, I get a game like Gitaroo-Man to throw all logic out the window. Honestly, how do you convince anyone that battling an Elvis impersonator in a bee costume is normal? Music games like Parappa the Rapper, Bus...
