Atari R.B.I. Baseball (Arcade)

Atari R.B.I. Baseball review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 12, 2005

Any seasoned gamer worth his salt knows the essence of R.B.I. Baseball for the NES. It's one of the greatest yet simplest sports games ever made, maintaining a following even decades after its release. Much of this popularity came from the inclusion of real MLB players and teams of the time. The rest came from how easy the game is to play and master. It doesn't take much work to learn how to dominate batters like a 14 year old amongst little leaguers or bomb round-trippers with the ...

Yoshi's Cookie (NES)

Yoshi's Cookie review (NES)

Reviewed on June 12, 2005

I'm still waiting for Nintendo Puzzle Collection to be released in the US, although that's looking rather unlikely. I like Tetris clones, and the thought of three of them at once seemed cool. Dr Mario will be instantly recognized among Nintendo fans, being the most famous Tetris Clone since, well, Tetris. Panel de Pon may confuse some, but perhaps you might know of its US releases as the Yoshi-themed Tetris Attack on the SNES or Pokemon Puzzle League/Challenge on N64 and GBC, respectively. Thos...

Yoshi (NES)

Yoshi review (NES)

Reviewed on June 12, 2005

I like Tetris clones. There’s just something about pouring all of your concentration into getting your colored pieces of something or other into just the right place in time, trying not to panic as you fix your mistakes, and smiling at your high score that makes them fun. I just like it when they’re done right. Incidentally, my favorite one (Tetris Attack) features Yoshi, so I wondered if this one would turn out nice and peachy as well. It turns out the answer is no. There are some good ideas he...

F-15 City Wars (NES)

F-15 City Wars review (NES)

Reviewed on June 12, 2005

I got new socks today! They're all nice and bright white and so warm and comfy and everything. See, my old socks were getting a bit worn, so I had to get new ones. Isn't that neat? No? So why am I telling you all this? I suppose I could relate my experiences with F-15 City Wars, a rather obscure NES game I played, instead. But in all honesty, I found the socks to be more exciting.

Castlevania: Bloodlines (Genesis)

Castlevania: Bloodlines review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 11, 2005

Castlevania: Bloodlines, the Genesis’ lone foray into the CV realm, suffered the misfortune of being released during the same era of gaming as effect-laden Super Castlevania IV and mythical Rondo of Blood. Reluctantly playing the hapless third sister of the two aforementioned legends, Bloodlines pulls off a marvelous Cinderella story, giving Genesis owners a CV saga that can proudly stand alongside its majestic siblings.

Time Crisis II (Arcade)

Time Crisis II review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 11, 2005

They try to tell us in school that you can get a lot higher without drugs than with them. After my stint hanging out with the LSD-heads, sometimes stooping so low as to snort the gas from a Reddy Whip aerosol can, I can now confidently attest that what they told you in school actually was rooted in truth. Time Crisis II is my irrefutable proof.

Manhunt (PlayStation 2)

Manhunt review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 11, 2005

Manhunt’s critical acclaim led me to believe it would be more than a game that relied purely on the shock value of its graphic violence for attention.

Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage (Genesis)

Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 10, 2005

One of many Spider-Man video games in a long history of Spider-Man video games, Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage comes in the form of one of those "beat-a-lot-of-people-ups". It follows a storyline from the comic where Carnage (AKA Cletus "The Slack-Jawed Yokel" Kasady), a psychotic serial killer wearing a psychotic alien symbiotic costume, escapes from the insane asylum to wreak havoc on the city. Of course, he's also gathered together a gang of equally psychotic super-villains to help him; ...

.hack Part 4: Quarantine review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

The .hack series has established itself as a guilty pleasure of roleplaying video games, akin to Sylvester Stallone and action movies or The OC and cheesy teen dramas. Despite repetitive button mashing and frustrating artificial intelligence, .hack remains entertaining because of a ruthlessly addictive storyline and the encompassing universe around it. .hack//Quarantine is the culmination of the four-part .hack series.

Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean review (GCN)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

Let's say that one day you and your company of gamers make a hit title, but feel that you're shafted out of making this title everything that it could be. You then split off from your parent company to set things right, but somewhere along the way you realize that you can't just ride the coattails of your parent game, and need to branch out. What is such a fledgling company as Monolith Soft to do? None other than make a game so different as to reqire a name I still haven't found a satisfactory p...

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

I wish I had a sword. A nice, big, demon-slaying sword. And guns, two guns, so I could go John Woo all over legions of the demons. I wish there were legions of demons for me to go John Woo on, endless throngs on hell-spawns ripe for the slicing. I wish I hung out with a girl in a schoolgirl outfit who had more weaponry than a third-world country strapped to her waste. I wish, I wish, I wish.

Mobile Light Force 2 (PlayStation 2)

Mobile Light Force 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

Mobile Light Force 2 is one of those cheesy ‘bullet’ shooters that come along, do absolutely nothing new with the genre, and are only remembered for bombarding the player with an unimaginable number of, well, bullets. That’s probably because shooters like this don’t really have much to hang their hat on, so the developers use an incessant barrage of red and purple lasers as means to supplant actual game play. You know, making the game enjoyable or trying to do something new isn’t a concern of t...

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

Every now and then a title comes along that changes the way we think about video games – something so startlingly different, so revolutionary, so innovative that it redefines a genre or invents one entirely. Mario was one such; Final Fantasy was another. Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, the list goes on. Someday the Xenosaga series, too, might be added to it, but it’s not quite there yet.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 (PlayStation 2)

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005 review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

Golf is boring. To me, watching the sport is about as entertaining as throwing money at a comatose stripper. So how can Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005—a game that is more realistic and down-to-earth then any other golf game out there—be entertaining? Because even though there isn’t much joy in watching the game, there is an insane amount of entertainment that comes from playing it; the elation of smashing balls down the fairway, the agony of pitching them into the sand. PGA tour has swayed from all ...

Thunder Force II review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

TechnoSoft’s Thunder Force series of shooters has gained much renown over the years as one of the shining stars of the genre. Combining fast-paced, twitchy action with a few diabolically difficult memorization sections, these games have proven capable of challenging virtually every skill a veteran player may have developed.

Mario Power Tennis (GameCube)

Mario Power Tennis review (GCN)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

To fully judge the merits of Mario Power Tennis you must first take away the glitz, glamour, and venerable fame, push aside the presumptuous stereotypes hastily slapped upon Mario’s name, and simply view the entertainment experienced at the end of your gaming session; it’s fun.

Sega Rally Championship (Saturn)

Sega Rally Championship review (SAT)

Reviewed on June 08, 2005

There weren't that many rally games out when Sega Rally Championship was released. Add to the fact that there probably weren't that many GOOD rally games, and you'll understand why so many gamers have fond memories of this Sega oldie. Well, that was then. Now we have all kinds of rally games coming out of developer's asses, making for plenty more to choose from. So, looking back, was SRC actually a good game, or were we too hungry for a standout title to even notice if it was? Well...

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 07, 2005

Final Fantasy VIII is a gorgeous work of art. It has a damn good story, too. But, to my chagrin, I have to say that Final Fantasy VIII is a pretty shoddy game — one that betrayed the magnificence of the previous two games in the series and, in my eyes, brought Square’s monolithic series plummeting from its perch on top of the role-playing world.

Dead or Alive 3 (Xbox)

Dead or Alive 3 review (XBX)

Reviewed on June 03, 2005

Dead or Alive 3 is all instant gratification, and that's what makes it special. The fighter is generally a genre for the dedicated and the steadfast; the fighter is inherently opposed to the intensely goal-oriented, save-every-five-minutes ethos that prevails in other genres; the fighter is an endless war of one-on-one matches waged against all comers. Only your skill will save you.

Lumines review (PSP)

Reviewed on June 03, 2005

There was a game that came out for the PS2 about 2 years ago that looked set to revolutionise the way videogames looked, by making the gameplay have an impact upon the sound and visuals of the game, and vice versa. The graphics pulsed in time to the pounding techno music, the tunes themselves grew more complex as each level progressed and got trickier, each time an enemy was destroyed they emitted an electronic pulsing sound that went in time to the music. It looked fantastic, sounded beautiful,...
