Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls (Game Boy Advance)

Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 03, 2005

Iíve been writing reviews only for the games I like, but this is real life and if I really want to do this for a living then I am going to have to come to terms with the hard fact that I will end up doing reviews for games I hate as well. If you ever had any respect for me, you're going to lose it here. I guarantee Iím going to get at least one thread that says ďHow dare you call Dawn Of Souls something that should have stayed buried in the past.Ē Yes, I said Dawn Of Souls--the GBAís remake of F...

Phantasy Star IV (Genesis)

Phantasy Star IV review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 03, 2005

I didnít want to play Phantasy Star IV when it first came out. Rumors had spread that this was the end of the series, and I heard the same from my friends. ďSo who wants to watch the end of an epic?Ē I asked myself. But as soon as I dismissed the heavy feeling in my heart and mourned my loss I finally picked it up, ready to say goodbye the only way I knew how--play the hell out of it.

BloodRayne 2 (PlayStation 2)

BloodRayne 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 02, 2005

Bloodrayne has a formula that works. Who is going to complain about a busty red head in tight leather chopping up naziís? Most of us will never admit it, but thatís why we played the game in the first place. Itís hard to deny, though, that a very decent game was buried underneath a superficial shell. Letís admit it--Bloodrayne is attractive, even for pixels. Sheís mouthy, sheís tough and she doesnít have a problem using guns. I brought that up for one reason- I want to get past it and focus on t...

Lemmings (PC)

Lemmings review (PC)

Reviewed on May 02, 2005

Lemmings arenít stupid. They donít really commit mass suicides and jump off cliffs into the merciless sea. In fact, the poor souls usually bite off more than they can chew by swimming across water that is excessively deep for them. They migrate in large groups and march into the water, hoping to migrate to a new and better home. Unfortunately, all they get is death. Although, this is commonly seen as suicide it is actually just plain stupidity. Thanks goodness that Psygnosis and DMA decided ...

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 02, 2005

Realization of the importance of plot in games took another giant step when Konami released itís best-selling Metal Gear Solid for the PlayStation. In the years before, storylines had been evolving slowly, getting itís first big boost with the high sales of Final Fantasy VII, but Metal Gear Solid is what truly brought in-depth plots out of the ghetto to make a mark on the gaming world.

Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

One day, as the human army was defending the castle against a goblin attack, a large and unpleasant-looking vortex appeared out of nowhere engulfed the castle and its people. When the humans wake up, they find themselves in a land of perpetual daylight, full of bloodthirsty monsters and the foul stench of evil. The good news is that the goblins are nowhere to be found. But the bad news is, whatever place the castle has been transported to appears to be located at the bottom of a valley surround...

WWE Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain (PlayStation 2)

WWE Smackdown! Here Comes the Pain review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

Iíve been an avid fan of wresting for about six years now. Iíve also been a fan of video games with the same setting for just as long. In all honesty, WWF Attitude was so enjoyable it made me start watching the actual show. With all the recent advancements I can say without a doubt that ďSmackdown: Here Comes The Pain.Ē is the single best wrestling game out there.

Shadow Hearts: Covenant (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts: Covenant review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

Whoever said turn-based combat games are boringÖ well, was probably right for the most part. Shadow Hearts: Covenant, however, pummels your head and your reflexes in a manner I havenít seen since Legend Of Dragoon. While Covenantís judgment ring doesnít have the same insane sense of timing as the fore-mentioned game it is still enough to make you actually sit up, focus and curse at yourself when you miss. The ring consists of yellow hit bars, small red strike bars, and a spinning clock hand that...

Shinobi (Game Gear)

Shinobi review (GG)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

GG Shinobi is not a down sized conversion of the original arcade game. Nor is it a shrunken down version of the Mega Driveís The Revenge of Shinobi. Itís a completely different kettle of fish from any Shinobi game featuring a collection of five (yes, five) versions of the legendary Joe Mushashi. Each of these clones has their own special abilities and different magic capability. With just one, they may seem weak but together they can break down any obstacle, walk on water and even defy t...

Bouken Danshaken Don San-Heart Hen (TurboGrafx-16)

Bouken Danshaken Don San-Heart Hen review (TG16)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

Bouken Danshaken Don San-Heart Hen takes the world of horizontally-scrolling shooters and cracks it with a sledgehammer two or three times. Produced by IíMax for the PC Engine in 1992, it combines a few out-of-the-ordinary gameplay features with the sort of insane visuals I havenít seen since the last time I dropped acid.

Ultimate Basketball (NES)

Ultimate Basketball review (NES)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

With the explosion in accessible information and playable video game roms via the Internet, few video games remain truly obscure to this day. Chances are, if a game is worth playing for any reason, someone has played it and felt the need to inform others. Games formerly considered obscure due to short/limited production runs (Radiant Silvergun) or translation issues (Bahamut Lagoon) are soon exposed by diehard fans on the Internet who appreciate the value of the gameplay.

Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III (Arcade)

Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III review (ARC)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

If this game were content to be called, unremarkably, Warrior Blade, it would not annoy me nearly as much. As it stands, the full name of this unremarkable beat-em-up is Warrior Blade: Rastan Saga Episode III, allegedly part of a trilogy no one remembers. If the other "Rastan Saga" entries were similar to this one, let us pause to give thanks that Taito did not wish to share them with their stupid rich gaijin buddies. I may be very alone in thinking this, but when a game wis...

Tokimeki Check In review (PC)

Reviewed on April 27, 2005

The grass is always greener where we are not, so it's reasonable that Takayuki Yamano dreams of a life out in the big, wide world. It's understandable that he wants to break away from the family business and create his own niche. That is to say, it would be understandable if his clan ran a more mundane enterprise, but the Yamano Inn is not an ordinary vacation spot. It's a hot spring resort, especially popular with gorgeous young women looking to blow off some steam. And this guy wants to es...

Ys II Eternal review (PC)

Reviewed on April 25, 2005

In an age of bad graphics and niche systems came a game known as Ys. The name, near-impossible as it is to pronounce to those who first see it (It sounds like east, without the t) sparks one of three emotions to those that hear of it: Sheer love, for the game's brilliant gameplay and Adol's silent charm; Pure hatred, at the game's difficulty level and 'simple' push-to-attack mechanics; or that intense feeling of confusion at the fact that this is the first time they've ever heard of this ...

The Lost Vikings (PC)

The Lost Vikings review (PC)

Reviewed on April 24, 2005

The Lost Vikings is bursting at the seams; not just because of the intensely challenging puzzles, the sheer mass of levels but because of the creative and innovative style that it brought forward. Its genre is a well crafted blend of a puzzle game and a platform title, although it tends to push to more puzzles than platforming aspects. Whatever you want to call it, The Lost Vikings is an innovative, challenging and humorous game to play.

Driver (PlayStation)

Driver review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 23, 2005

Being an undercover cop sounds to me like a kind of mental torture, where I am always constantly paranoid that my identity shall be exposed at any moment and inspire the wrath of several Mr. Blonde types with Brooklyn accents, begging the question of why I worked for The Man in the first place. No thanks, I like having ears and all. For a badass like Tanner, an ex-racer/swinger/hustler cop, life is dull unless you're constantly holding on to life by the fingertips, and the best sensation in the ...

Wizards & Warriors (NES)

Wizards & Warriors review (NES)

Reviewed on April 22, 2005

One of the first NES games I ever played was Acclaimís Wizards and Warriors. Back then, I thought this game was flat-out spectacular. Yeah, it was a bit on the easy side thanks to a system that gave you unlimited continues, but all that meant to me was that Wizards and Warriors was a game I could pick up and beat on those days where I just didnít feel like enduring the heartbreak of losing my last life fighting the final boss (Iím looking at you, Blaster Master!).

Shinobi (PlayStation 2)

Shinobi review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 21, 2005

Shinobi isnít for the weak of heart. Itís always demanding, and it offers no forgiveness if you fail to deliver when it asks you to. If you cannot handle intense ninja action moves, stages that lack checkpoints, or mildly taxing platforming, then you should consider picking up a copy of Billy Hatcher instead.
