Super Mario All-Stars (SNES)

Super Mario All-Stars review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Rock has the Beatles. Fantasy has Lord of the Rings. Cinema has Star Wars. They may not have been the first in their respective forms of entertainment, but they shattered all preconceptions when they arrived and forever changed the way these media were percieved. And surely, Mario deserves to stand in their midst, being the best selling series of all time and providing the very model of modern platformers. So what better way to honor this series than a Mario compilation involving the man in...

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

According to those boring writing classes I had to take way back when, all essays should start with some introduction, some hook to get the reader interested. And yet, what can I say? You've heard it all already: 14 or so variations of the game that started Nintendo's dominance, a dozen or so appeals to nostalgia, 8 different methods of calling the game groundbreaking or revolutionary, 6 or so history lessons about the video game crash, and even one or two jokers comparing Mario to a certain d...

Polarium (DS)

Polarium review (DS)

Reviewed on August 07, 2005

Scanning the local Gamestop, my eyes lazily rested on an interesting prospect. Everyone knows that puzzlers hold lofty standards on handheld gaming machines; every good portable needs an excellent pick-up-and-play title. Thus I briskly passed on the highly touted Meteos and took a somewhat risky stab at Polarium. Based on the fact that Iíve been playing it feverishly for the past three weeks, Iíll go out on a limb and say I got my moneyís worth.

Drakengard review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 06, 2005

Caim and his fire-breathing friend will travel down a long road that brings them nothing but pain and misery, with death comprising the only means through which to achieve peace of mind. Ultimately, all that they can do is make sure they deal an equitable amount of grief to their adversaries in turn.

Alisia Dragoon (Genesis)

Alisia Dragoon review (GEN)

Reviewed on August 05, 2005

Alisia Dragoon may not be Godís gift to action gamers but it still packs a punch. Not only does it star a hot anime chick (Well, some might think that) but also it has the best method of pest control Iíve seen. Who wouldíve thought that sweeping bolts of lightening are an effective method for destroying a bunch of mangy insects?

Exile II: Crystal Souls (PC)

Exile II: Crystal Souls review (PC)

Reviewed on August 05, 2005

The Exile trilogy made something of a name for itself when it hit the shareware market in the mid-90ís, claiming a handful of mildly impressive awards and thrilling loads of people in magazines Iíve never heard of. Then, a few years later, it was remade into the less awesome Avernum series, which marked Spiderweb Softwareís jump onto the crappy 3D bandwagon. But the shareware era was destined to die, and when it faded away so did Spiderwebís games. To this day they can still be fou...

Ultimate Doom (Mac)

Ultimate Doom review (MAC)

Reviewed on August 03, 2005

For someone like me, who likely is never going to leave the planet Earth, the thought of becoming a Space Marine is an attractive prospect. Being able to travel to distant planets and call the moons of Mars my home sounds like the adventure of a lifetime! Sadly, as classic first-person shooter Doom illustrates, there is a wee bit of a darkside to holding such an occupation. For mysterious reasons, the forces of Hell pay a little visit to Phobos and Deimos (those Martian moons, for those n...

Riviera: The Promised Land (Game Boy Advance)

Riviera: The Promised Land review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 02, 2005

My first hours with Riviera were not indicative of what my next few weeks with it would be like. I popped it in and was displeased by the entire set up and not surprised that I could guess the whole story within the first 5 minutes. The jaded RPG fan inside of me totally flared up. I almost sold it right back to someone who would appreciate it, but gave it a second chance. What I almost missed out on was one of the more refreshing RPG experiences this gen. Through the distillation of typical, wo...

GunGriffon: Allied Strike review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 02, 2005

Okay, check this: it's the year 2008, see, and like, countries start leaving the U.N., and economic regions in South Asia joined together to create AWESOME POWER. I guess. Then the U.N. started to suck afterwards. Now fast-foward to 2023, and like, a democratic revolution broke out within this Asian nation, and then The South Asian Trade Area was like, "Whoa, terrorists!". So, now it's 2024, and the U.N. decided to form this multi-force thingy to fight against The South Asian Trade and gain REAL...

Capcom Fighting Evolution (Xbox)

Capcom Fighting Evolution review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 01, 2005

I think that Capcom wanted Capcom Fighting Jam to be the ultimate 2-D fighting experience. It combined five of their best fighting series (three of them are actually different variations of Street Fighter) and merged them into one game. It sounds like a Capcom fanís dream come true but the horrible truth reveals that CFJ is an awkward and rushed fighter that does nothing to stand out from the crowd.

Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain (PlayStation 2)

Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 31, 2005

Bio-terrorism is an ugly scar on the face of humanity. Secret wars are waged all over the world to contain and defuse any situation before it leaks out into the public. Itís your job to keep the innocent civilians safeóthose civilians who will probably never thank you, appreciate you or even know who you are. For the longest time, it was up to Gabe Logan to stem the countless outbreaks that threatened the very fabric of society. Gabe, however, is no longer just a one-man anti-terrorism unit. Fol...

Pang! review (ARC)

Reviewed on July 31, 2005

It may be fair to argue that Mitchell is not a coin-op company with a lavish history, and we, the gaming public, have not been inundated with titles spanning a 25 year stretch which other more illustrious names can claim. In fact, if you look at a list of their published titles, one name stands out for the frequency of its appearance - and for good reason too.

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay (Xbox)

The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 30, 2005

Murderers and rapists, women and children, entire families and pets have all been murdered indiscriminately and left with slit throats, broken necks, and bullets through their heads while blood adorns nearby walls with no one to blame. Maybe this could be a testament to the greatness of a skilled bounty hunter. For Riddick, this is just another day at the office.

Splinter Cell (PlayStation 2)

Splinter Cell review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 30, 2005

Contrary to certain (mis)conceptions, Tom Clancyís Splinter Cell isnít a very innovative game. While contrasting considerably from the universally acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 2, its core gameplay elements fall heavily in line with the stealth blueprint laid out by Looking Glass Studiosí Thief, one of the originators of the genre. Splinter Cellís success lies in the supplementing of its stealth mechanics with unbelievably believable environments and audio, as well as a generous helping of well-wri...

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 29, 2005

When I think of Dragonball Z many things come to mind. The dozens of filler episodes. The lame dialogue, and not to mention a pretty uninteresting story compared to most anime. DBZís saving grace is its insane fights, and long, epic confrontations. Now, take out these great fights, and make them suck. Then, take everything that plagues the DBZ TV show. Put all of this into a game. Youíll end up with crap. Youíll end up withÖ

Dig, if you will, this picture. Youíre walking through a desert. Typical desert; full of sand, scorpions, snakes. Sunís beating down, burning away the few brain cells that the videogames havenít. Youíre hot, youíre sweaty, youíre thirsty, and youíre starting to gag on your own BO. Pleasant experience.

Warlords review (MAC)

Reviewed on July 28, 2005

A lone hero stands in the city his people call home. He feels an immense amount of pressure weigh upon his broad shoulders, as his death would be a crippling blow to his people in their attempts to unite the 80 cities scattered throughout the land. Seven other heroes representing seven other factions all have their own dreams of conquest and glory. Letting any of them obtain a tactical advantage could easily become a fatal mistake. For no matter how adept with the blade his people become, there ...
