Mega Man Anniversary Collection (Xbox)

Mega Man Anniversary Collection review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2005

C'mon, you know you wanted this, to have all these classic Mega Man titles on one disc instead of having to go through the series on multiple consoles. And it would be an even bigger nuisance if you're just now going through the trouble of buying a bunch of used and dirty cartridges. Sure, Xbox owners are getting the compilation nine months after the PS2 and GC releases, but for just twenty-dollars, Mega Man Anniversary Collection is a great bargain title.

Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2005

Super Mario Bros 3 reverts back to the classic Mario formula, unlike the SMB2 disappointment. Instead of riding on the heads of enemies and picking vegetables, gamers were rewarded with a block busting, fire throwing and flying (that’s a new power) Mario. It took the basic style that SMB’s produced and worked on that, adding a new level selection, new power ups and a brand new mission for our podgy plumber.

StarCraft review (PC)

Reviewed on April 09, 2005

With video games being released almost on a daily basis, it’s hard to keep up in the competition. If you want to make a bang, you have to do it NOW, and never look back. Unfortunately, the suicide bomb explosion is naturally stronger on a console; PC games are rarely talked about frequently ages after they’re released. Sure, there’s the occasional Half-Life, but come now; how often do you talk about games such as Neverwinter Nights or Doom, or even well-known titles i...

Curse (Genesis)

Curse review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 09, 2005

If you take a very positive attitude into Micronet Megadrive shooter Curse, you just might find yourself in the midst of a pretty good experience. For being released by one of those unknown companies, Curse is a decent shooter with some fast action.

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on April 08, 2005

Super Mario Bros laid the path for platform genre; you could play any platform game that was released after it and pick out the features that SMB defined. The collecting of one hundred objects to gain an extra life, jumping on the heads of enemies and powering your character up were all taken from this NES classic. It wasn’t Mario’s first appearance in the gaming world. He had hit fame with two other arcade oldies known as Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. It was only at the release of Super Mario ...

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (GameCube)

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 07, 2005

Turn on your console and you’re greeted with a grainy, evil-voiced quote from Edgar Alan Poe. As this rather cheerful quote suggests, Eternal Darkness takes its influence from that of the great literary horror novels, especially those of H. P. Lovecraft. To be honest, Eternal Darkness blatantly rips off much of Lovecraft’s Cthulu novels, and this is no bad thing for a survival horror game seeking distinction.

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...

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.
