Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku (Game Boy Advance)

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 (PlayStation 2)

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 (DS)

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 (SNES)

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...

Zed Blade (NeoGeo)

Zed Blade review (NEO)

Reviewed on July 22, 2005

When I think of the Neo-Geo’s small library of horizontal shooters, the first thing that comes to mind is R-Type. No, Irem never put any of their flagship franchise’s games on this system, but you don’t exactly have to be a genius to see that influence in games such as Pulstar, Last Resort and (to a lesser degree) Blazing Star. So, why would I expect anything drastically different from the obscure Zed Blade?

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PlayStation 2)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 22, 2005

Grand Theft Auto has perhaps the biggest cult following of any video game. Ever since part three, GTA has scorched its way across the gaming world as one of the most sought after and anticipated franchises ever. The game is so popular that copycats and mirrored images are being produced faster than a plague, but with its latest installment—San Andreas—Rockstar once again proves in this sick world of free-roaming death and mayhem they are still king.

NamCollection review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 21, 2005

NamCollection is the latest in Namco’s long line of cashing in on moldy old shit that nobody but 45 year old women want to play anymore. The difference this time is that they F’d up and accidentally included a couple good games! The main draws of this collection are Klonoa and Ace Combat 2, two of the of the finest PSX games ever produced and due to their scarcity, probably a couple that most people missed playing back in the day. Each game has a slight graphical facelift in the form of the t...

Yuu Yuu Hakusho: Makyo Toitsusen review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 20, 2005

When you think of the excellent developer known as Treasure and their small library of Mega Drive games, which titles spring to mind? Gunstar Heroes and Dynamite Headdy are probably the two titles that instantly spring to mind which is understandable. Those two games were easily the most popular out of the handful of titles but one that truly deserves to stand side by side with those two games is another title that was pushed into the darkness of obscurity. A fighting game that boasts one of th...

Pinball Hall of Fame: The Gottlieb Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 20, 2005

Pinball Hall of Fame. I figured at first it was just a name, but when I popped in the disc and started playing, the game really lived up to its title. In this collection, you'll have the chance to select between seven popular Gottlieb pinball tables that originally came out during the 1950s (Ace High), 60s (Central Park), 70s (Big Shot and Genie), 80s (Black Hole and Victory), and 90s (Tee'd Off). Not only that, but each table has a different theme and a set of goals: from Ace High's play...

Armed and Dangerous (PC)

Armed and Dangerous review (PC)

Reviewed on July 18, 2005

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that game plots have evolved over the years. Twenty years ago most plots were as simple as save the princess, but today we have to put up with several twists, romance, tons of dialogue, CG sequences, and more. They also tend to be more serious. I remember playing Earthworm Jim and having to launch cows, fight lawyers, and enter an area known as “Buttville”. I also vividly recall playing The Lost Vikings and hearing the three goofballs c...

Robots, thousands of them were gathering in the middle of a secluded bit of desert out in Arizona. I was hiding behind a cactus, watching them. The Robots were gathering and rallying for the soon to be invasion of Phoenix, several thousand humans, aware of the Robots assemblage, began to march towards them screaming curses and battle cries. The Robots became aware of their presence and began to assemble for combat. I braced myself for the worst. The humans were outnumbered 50-1. It would be a...

Animal Crossing review (GCN)

Reviewed on July 17, 2005

Videogames can take up your time. They can take a minute, an hour, a day…possibly a month. Usually this is an addictive game, possibly a game that will keep your attention day in and day out. Your eyes glued to the screen waiting for something to happen. Just a game that will keep you entertained, and few games of this kind come out rarely. That’s why you’ve got to keep your eyes open – Animal Crossing is waiting at the shelves.

Doom 3 (Xbox)

Doom 3 review (XBX)

Reviewed on July 17, 2005

There comes a time in everyone’s gaming life that they allow curiosity take over their choices. They let the wildly erratic reviews of a game rest, and pick it up to simply look and see. That’s exactly what I did with Doom 3. I’ve read the reviews touting it as godsend, and I’ve read the ones labeling it a lifeless, banal piece of software. I’ve mashed my opinion of the game somewhere in between those two categories. There are some truly stunning moments that make me happy I spent...
