Tales of Symphonia (GameCube)

Tales of Symphonia review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 05, 2005

RPG titles simply don't surface much on the GameCube. The few that do trickle in every now and then are always welcome, even when they are not really all that great (example: the "remix" of Skies of Arcadia, which was not a terrible game but certainly not completely compelling). Tales of Symphonia, however, manages to stand well on its own against some of the classics....

Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti (NES)

Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti review (NES)

Reviewed on April 02, 2005

If you took Splatterhouse, removed the excessive gore, the array of disgusting monsters and the nice selection of pain spreading weaponry, you’d be left with something like Wanpaku Graffiti. Instead of following the usual plan, WG is a colourful and happy platformer which seems to parody many old horror flicks and the actual Splatterhouse series. It may sound a little bizarre but WP is actually a worthy addition to the series, surpassing Splatterhouse 2 in almost all aspects.

Crazy Taxi 2 (Dreamcast)

Crazy Taxi 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on April 02, 2005

Ya know, I used to hate Crazy Taxi 2, thinking it didn't live up to the first game's standards. So with that mindset, I was ready to bash the game in this review; but then, I started playing it again. And to my surprise, it's not as bad as I'd originally thought. Hell, it's about as equal to its predecessor, give or take a few differences. That's a good thing and, unfortunately, a bad thing.

Chaos Legion (PlayStation 2)

Chaos Legion review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 30, 2005

Meet Sieg Warheit, a young knight of the Dark Glyphs, and one of coolest looking characters in videogame history. He’s got a beautifully tattered cape, a large sword with a mysterious, blue aura, and a brilliant helmet of blazing orange hair. Closer examination would also reveal that there’s a definite look of torment on his face, and I’ll tell you what tortures Sieg: he wants to know what a badass looking guy like himself is doing in such a ridiculous game like Chaos Legion, and I’d like to kno...

Chiki Chiki Boys (Genesis)

Chiki Chiki Boys review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 30, 2005

Capcom were the masterminds behind the lost sword slashing and magic casting classic, Chiki Chiki Boys. Taking RPG elements from Sega's Wonder Boy in Monster World, they mixed these aspects with a hint of arcade action to create this title. Unfortunately, the effort fell on deaf ears and remains today a little-known Capcom game, one that should have received a truckload of love but instead was thrown into the deep, dark pit of obscurity amongst other forgotten treasures.

Devil May Cry 2 (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 28, 2005

The Action game genre is one that everyone has to love. And anybody who is into the genre realizes that Devil May Cry is one of the top titles. The first Devil May Cry was a huge jump of success for Capcom. But, with the new developers they hired, it seems we are left with a downfall. Capcom said they wanted to fix flaws in the first game, and add to the sequel. Instead, they fixed some of the flaws, but they took away what made the game best.

Devil May Cry 2 (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 27, 2005

Devil May Cry 2 is an underwhelming sequel in every respect. From its sloppy presentation to its water-downed game play, we’ll be only left to wonder what possessed Capcom to make such a lousy follow up to their original smash hit. Maybe the blame shouldn’t lie with Capcom, rather the fans that could be found pouting in their rooms after repeatedly dying to the same clan of scythe-wielding monstrosities all night long. They whined and wished that the game wasn’t so difficult since they clearly l...

Mystic Ark (SNES)

Mystic Ark review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 27, 2005

In the early nineties, Enix released an oddly named game known as Elnard to an otherwise unsuspecting Japanese public. A number of months later, the stateside release hit, and due to the fact that Elnard was a damn stupid name, the American release was renamed The 7th Saga. It made a mild splash in the gaming world, but fell into semi-obscurity under the thresholds of other, better games released at the time. Then, 1995 rolled around, seeing the release of memorable titles s...

Fantasy Zone (Sega Master System)

Fantasy Zone review (SMS)

Reviewed on March 25, 2005

A couple of nights ago, I was playing Fantasy Zone on the Master System. I leaned back in my gaming chair while in the item shop and found myself tapping my feet and drumming my fingers to the catchy music. Observing my actions, my wife asked what I was doing. So, I let her have a listen, she agreed the music was catchy and we did a little dance. It was a great, whimsical moment that likely will bring a smile to my face for many days to come.

Soul Blazer (SNES)

Soul Blazer review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

Once upon a time in a land far away, there lived a king. Formerly a kind and generous man, the monarch made a fateful decision to summon a powerful demon. When the foul Deathtoll appeared, the king traded the souls of every living being under his jurisdiction for one gold coin each. That money would wind up unclaimed, though, as the king’s soul was lost, too (he should have read the fine print). Just like that, Deathtoll erased all life from the world and turned it into a ruined and desolate pla...

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

After months of painful delays, Street Fighter Anniversary Collection finally arrived on the Xbox, and while it isn't perfect, it’s a welcome addition to my gaming library. This amalgamation of the Street Fighter II-series games (World Warriors, Champion Edition, Turbo [Special Champion Edition on the Genesis], Super, and Super Turbo) in the form of Street Fighter II Hyper, combined with the final installment of the Street Fighter III series (Third Strike) crams a lot of fighting onto one disc,...

RoboCop (NES)

RoboCop review (NES)

Reviewed on March 24, 2005

Robots are undeniably cool. Everybody knows police officers are totally awesome. It was only a matter of time until somebody decided to bring the two together. When it did… they called him Robocop. And he represented something; namely, the courage to keep going despite what you lost, and the ability to kick lots of ass. The idealism of it all made for a great movie, and this game that comes from it a fairly enjoyable experience as well.

Star Fox Assault (GameCube)

Star Fox Assault review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 23, 2005

The Star Fox team first appeared on the Gamecube in a platform game, called Star Fox Adventures. While, many considered it a quality game (and others a subpar game) it never really felt like a true Star Fox game, despite the occasional flying (simple stages). Namco, however, introduced the true sequel to the classic Star Fox games, that game being Star Fox Assault. While it does have its faults, overall it keeps itself true to many of the key aspects of the frist two Star Fox game; that aspect b...

Dino Crisis 2 (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

To say I was impressed with the original Dino Crisis would be an extreme understatement, and would probably be a travesty to my feelings of the game. I enjoyed playing the original immensely, despite the fact I found it to have some flaws. Of course, I am one of those people that can find flaws in any game, but that does not take away from the fun factor I experience with these games, at all. I definitely enjoyed playing the original Dino Crisis, because it took everything I liked about Resident...

Legendary Wings (NES)

Legendary Wings review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

After reviewing Activision Classics, I realized just how many damn shooter ripoffs there were out there to choose from. Almost every Atari game was apparently a ripoff of Space Invaders. And there were a lot of vertical scrolling, and side scrolling shooters to choose from on the NES, as well. Legendary Wings was yet another example of this, but like most of the other ones, it's still a lot of fun to play. I've always been a big fan of the genre, and feel Legendary Wings brings a lot to the tabl...

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

Released in 1986, Metroid chronicles the adventure of a young bounty hunter named Samus Aran, whose mission is simple: to exterminate the remaining Metroids and bring peace to the galaxy. It's a pretty original storyline for its day, and it blends in well with the space-like atmosphere of the game. The storyline was even used as the focal point of later efforts, so more points to it there for actually starting a continual storyline.

Snow Bros. (Genesis)

Snow Bros. review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

Snow Bros.; Possibly one of the most bizarre yet unoriginal arcade style games to be ported from the arcade to the Mega Drive. Don’t get me wrong though just because this game isn’t original doesn’t mean that it is a travesty! In fact Snow Bros is possibly one the most addictive two player games on the Mega Drive, due to its insane length and extremely durable gameplay.

NARC (NES)

NARC review (NES)

Reviewed on March 22, 2005

As lowly officers working in narcotics, you’re given the objective to take a stroll through the shady part of town and basically eliminate any scumbags that happen to be residing there. The task won’t be easy; you’ll have to confront dealers, addicts, killer clowns, and more as you struggle to make the streets a safer place for everyday citizens. You’re also likely going to be outnumbered, and your only allies will be your machine gun, rocket launcher, and brightly-colored riot gear.
