Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance (NES)

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Heroes of the Lance review (NES)

Reviewed on March 19, 2005

TO ARMS, my heroic brethren! This is no time to be drinking your steel away in the company of flirtatious barmaids; nay, not even the winsome lasses with massive jugs (of ale). Prithee buckle on that trusty scabbard instead and extend your battlemace to the heavens – the insidious agents of villainy gather in our midst! Capering about as if in unholy pantaloons stitched from naught but 100% EVIL, these rapscallions dare to style themselves “Heroes of the Lance.” Bah! E...

Rockman & Forte (SNES)

Rockman & Forte review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 19, 2005

RockMan and Forte is sort of an anomaly in the vast field of Mega Man games. Released in 1998 for the Super Famicom, this game really doesn’t fit cleanly into the Blue Bomber’s initial series.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

As you walk down the sand-swept streets of Tatooine, you and your party come across a widow desperately trying to sell the only possession she has left. She needs the money to get herself and her kids off the planet to somewhere nicer. Tatooine isn’t a nice place. As you talk with her, you can decide what you want to do. Touched by her story, you might want to buy the item from her, and if you’re feeling exceptionally generous, you can give her more. It’s only 500 credits, and in your journey, y...

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Do you remember the music of the early nineties? It featured a wave of experimental genres and new hybrids, at least compared to the music of the eighties. From Seattle, the raw sound of Nirvana refined the rougher edges of punk, paving the way for later acts such as Green Day, which itself was a hybrid of British punk and “new” alternative. The Black Crowes tried a new fusion of Southern blues with rock and roll. Rage Against the Machine combined political protest lyrics with an aggressive ...

Warrior of Rome (Genesis)

Warrior of Rome review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Julius Caesar was many things: a military leader, a writer, and a dictator. He also accomplished such things as being victorious in a number of battles and conquered a lot of countries. And then there was his death where he was stabbed a bijillion times. Even long after his demise, he is still being remembered through memorabilia such as his own coins, statues, and even movies. Which brings me to this strategy game, Warrior of Rome. Based on the events in 48 B.C. where he fights through t...

Valkyrie no Bouken: Toki no Kagi Densetsu review (NES)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Maybe I should just cut my losses and surrender. After all, the only reason I’m continuing in my attempt to conquer Namco’s astoundingly bad Famicom title Legend of Valkyrie is because I simply cannot accept defeat. But I feel a little more of my sanity slip away every time I sit down and force myself to attempt making heads or tails out of this pathetic precursor to The Legend of Zelda.

Final Fantasy X (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 18, 2005

Entries of the Final Fantasy series have always been memorable classics of one sort or another. Since the beginning, each of the Final Fantasy games were designed to be nothing less than epic quests for a group of heroes to defeat evil and save the world. (I suppose that’s the appeal of the whole series, really, as anyone can share in the fantasy of being a hero.) Lately, for better or worse, the games have placed a greater emphasis on telling a complex and engaging story. Final Fantasy X is...

Dynamite Dux (Sega Master System)

Dynamite Dux review (SMS)

Reviewed on March 17, 2005

Dynamite Dux was a fun, yet extremely obscure game that was released in the arcades in 1989. A cute cuddly-looking platform/beat-me-up that set out to capture the hearts and minds of arcade gamers everywhere but failed miserably. It is now a game long forgotten (despite it being barely noticed by anyone in the first place) now cast in the pile of games that didn’t quite get the attention that they sought along with other games such as “Snow Bros” and “Golden Axe warrior.” It is a shame that Dyna...

Dynamite Dux (Arcade)

Dynamite Dux review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2005

Dynamite Dux may be severely underrated but it’s still one of the quirkiest and original beat-em-ups I’ve played in a long time. Instead of using the standard scheme of a city being overrun by crime or a big axe being stolen, it does things a little differently. You play a duck called Bin, a character who was probably designed to be SEGA’s mascot, judging by his red sneakers and blue skin who has to punch, kick and shoot his way through an army of bizarre enemies. It was an early release for ...

Sonic the Hedgehog review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 16, 2005

We all know the history of Sega vs. Nintendo. Nintendo probably had at least an 80% share of the market, and it was hard to imagine a company doing better than becoming Pepsi to Nintendo’s Coca-Cola. So here comes Sega with its version of a mascot that could presumably outrun the fastest cheetah, Speedy Gonzales, and of course, Mario.

Eternal Champions: Challenge from the Dark Side (Sega CD)

Eternal Champions: Challenge from the Dark Side review (SCD)

Reviewed on March 14, 2005

Mortal Kombat made it big by overwhelming us with gratuitous gore and bloody fatalities. The concept of actually killing your opponent in the fight was a little more radical than just beating the snot out of them. Because of this irreverence, it became a controversial hit for all fighting game enthusiasts, playing the game just to see the blood and forgetting about the things that actually made a fighting game good. The sequel to Eternal Champions is an example of a game that follows a similar...

Splatterhouse 2 (Genesis)

Splatterhouse 2 review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 13, 2005

Splatterhouse was a fantastic gore-fest, packed with rotting body parts, blood stained hallways and gruesome monsters intent on ripping your guts out. It spawned a mass of controversy on its release and was ripped from arcades shortly after. This bloodbath was also ported to the Turbo-grafx 16, a great port that had a few things edited because of a Satanic reference, an upside down crucifix. It was an original platformer and was one of the first games that dared to go down paths that many games ...

Dark Cloud 2 (PlayStation 2)

Dark Cloud 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 13, 2005

Near the beginning of the PS2's release a little-known game by the name of Dark Cloud was released. It was fun, but nothing special made it stand out other than its innovative, yet slightly restricted Georama system. It fell into a pit of mediocrity, and before the American release even hit, there was talk of a sequel.

Manhunt (PlayStation 2)

Manhunt review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 12, 2005

Death would have been a luxury for James Earl Cash, considering the hellish situation he was soon plunged into following his execution. He was a convict on Death Row, but that was so long ago, it hardly seemed necessary going into his past. Currently, he was cowering in the shadows like a cockroach while a band of street scum scoured the area, hurling threats and obscenities his way. Their baseball bats were strong enough to demolish concrete structures, and Cash was badly aching from one lucky ...

My first day at work consisted of washing countertops and cleaning dishes. Rookie cop Leon Kennedy wasn't so on the safe side. He arrived on the job expected to be berated for tardiness by his superior officer, but ended up battling his way through hordes of mindless zombies in the mountain resort Raccoon City. The Umbrella Corporation, an international pharmaceutical company that was the backbone of Raccoon City’s economy, had secretly been experimenting with viruses that changed inner biologic...

Flicky (Genesis)

Flicky review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 10, 2005

When digging deep into my collection of games I came across the weird part of the closet. Here lay some of the oddest games I had ever played for various systems, ranging from either the generally wacky to the outright bizarre. Games like Snow Bros., Psycho Fox, and Alfred the Chicken seemed to be ones that stood out from the rest because of their originality and charm, while one that never escaped me was a game called Flicky on the Genesis.
