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 fan’s 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. It’s your job to keep the innocent civilians safe—those 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! (Arcade)

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 Clancy’s Splinter Cell isn’t 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 Studios’ Thief, one of the originators of the genre. Splinter Cell’s 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. DBZ’s 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. You’ll end up with crap. You’ll end up with…

Xenosaga Episode II: Jenseits von Gut und Bose review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 29, 2005

Dig, if you will, this picture. You’re walking through a desert. Typical desert; full of sand, scorpions, snakes. Sun’s beating down, burning away the few brain cells that the videogames haven’t. You’re hot, you’re sweaty, you’re thirsty, and you’re starting to gag on your own BO. Pleasant experience.

Destroy All Humans! (Xbox)

Destroy All Humans! review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 28, 2005

I’ll admit to being a huge UFO enthusiast; that’s why I had so much hope for this game. Destroying everything in my path with an all-powerful aircraft sounded like a lot of fun…and it is. However, it’s merely mindless fun, so don’t come in expecting anything more.

Warlords (Mac)

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 ...

Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone (Xbox)

Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 26, 2005

Demon Stone drops you into an interesting predicament. Instead of the typical fantasy romp, which puts you in a quest to defeat some evil Dark Lord ® it throws you in the middle of a war between two beastly tyrants, who wish to wipe each other out before they can claim the world as their own. It also takes three warriors with their own secret tragedy that has banished them from their differing societies, intertwining their paths. It’s too bad that barely a few hours after the three heroes are ...

Kirby's Avalanche (SNES)

Kirby's Avalanche review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 24, 2005

Among puzzle games, there is a king, Tetris. But there are others that vie for that position. One is fairly popular in Japan, and also popular among those weird elite hardcore gamers that you occasionally find. It is said to be more challenging than the king, more cerebral, and deeper. Its name is Puyo Puyo, but has gone by many incarnations. Sega called it Dr Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine. And on the SNES, it too took the form of a popular franchise. It became Kirby’s Avalanche.

Kirby Super Star (SNES)

Kirby Super Star review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 24, 2005

Kirby rocks. He's a pink fluffball that sucks you in, spits you out, steals your weapons, and flies over your head before turning into a rock and crushing you. How can you not love such a cool guy? Besides, his games are generally great too, particularly Kirby's Adventure on the NES. So really, how can one resist the promise of 6 new games in one little cartridge, all starring our favorite cream puff? Well, if it wasn't for the fact that most of these games are so generic, this could have b...

Killer 7 (GameCube)

Killer 7 review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 24, 2005

Killer 7, the latest offering from Capcom, is created by the all-star trifecta of Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Shinji Mikami, and the visionary developer, Suda 51 along with his Grasshopper studio. For nearly 4 years now, screenshots have trickled, speculations have been all over the place and the face of the game has slowly changed. Now the game is here with almost as much mystique as before. With its eye-catching style, emphasis on cinematics and unorthodox game play, you will probably wonder how it al...

Devil May Cry 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 23, 2005

If you were unaware that Devil May Cry 2 was crafted by a different development team than that of its predecessor, you could only conclude that Capcom was trying to flush its newly conceived Devil May Cry series down the proverbial toilet. Only one thing about Devil May Cry 2 is impressive: how it has been so successfully stripped of the original’s personality, depth, and challenge – these being virtually everything that made Devil May Cry the unique, stellar title that it was. Actually, that’s ...

The Urbz: Sims in the City review (DS)

Reviewed on July 23, 2005

It didn’t take The Sims Hot Date/Vacation/Makin’ Magic/Bustin’ Out/Livin’ Large/Unleashed for me to realize that Maxis had tapped the well of originality. With all the busty expansion packs and “deluxe” versions of the original game available, I find it somewhat surprising that The Urbz: Sims in the City has even met a release date. After a while, you’d think a developer could no longer include any more content within a life-simulator. However, Maxis has decidedly taken a leap towards a story-dr...

Final Fantasy III review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 23, 2005

Each passing year, dozens of new role-playing games are released. They come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from old classics like Squaresoft‘s Final Fantasy to more profound and modern ones such as Namco’s Tales of Symphonia. If one were to compare the two, they would find a multitude of differences and improvements that only evolution and time could create. The former title lacks much dialogue, has sketchy animation and fails to motivate the player. The second, however, has...
