Color a Dinosaur (NES)

Color a Dinosaur review (NES)

Reviewed on February 20, 2005

Hi there, it's me, the grumpy old veteran gamer, using another medium to express my hatred towards the state of games post-1983. You know me, I'm the guy who goes to Goodwill when he wants a new game. I am wired on Vicodin during the day to treat my Carpal Tunnel-effected wrists. At night I can be found using my laptop, sprawled out on my bed because of a sudden urge to start a bidding war with some punk who will not lose the auction for a pristine Beta copy of Zork. Because it is an auth...

Divine Sealing (Genesis)

Divine Sealing review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 18, 2005

Thereís nothing divine about Divine Sealing; it offers little more than a small hentai album wrapped in five brief levels of shallow, unfinished vertical shooter. At the very least, the quality of its artwork is respectable Ė but this is a clear testament to the fact that this gameís only intended allure was its animated nudity. Dorks who are actually into that stuff should simply stick to the Internet to satisfy their passions Ė even they donít deserve to suffer Divine Sealingís boring shooter ...

SoulCalibur II (Xbox)

SoulCalibur II review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 18, 2005

Soul Calibur 2 has been Namcoís recent big hits, aside from the earlier Tekken games, which rocked, the company hadnít brought out anything that was regarded as a classic, from a general gamers point of view. However, with Soul Calibur 2, Namco recreated the weapon-based 3-D fighting experience that thousands have now enjoyed. The game follows the legacy of the demonic Soul-Edge, a sword of apparent unfathomable evil and it covers the quests of various warriors on their quest to destroy the b...

Mega Man 8 Anniversary Edition (PlayStation)

Mega Man 8 Anniversary Edition review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

Charles Darwinís theory of evolution has been superfluously criticized by both religious fanatics and the common folk, and while over the last two centuries most of the population has come to a compromise on this bitterly-contested thesis, there still remain the stubborn and untactful few.

Gauntlet II (NES)

Gauntlet II review (NES)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

The name Gauntlet couldnít have been more appropriate. What we have here is nothing more than some palette-swapped dungeons that we force our reckless heroes through while being assaulted by a never-ending myriad of blood-hungry denizens. Gauntlet didnít start anything revolutionary here folks; this concept of infinite monsters and randomly created dungeons has been around for quite a while before Atari added some spices to the mix.

Neutopia (TurboGrafx-16)

Neutopia review (TG16)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

After I completed the Turbografx-16ís Neutopia, I half-expected to find that the roles of Jazeta, the princess heís trying to rescue and the evil villain Dirth were played by Link, Zelda and Ganon, respectively. But maybe that was what Hudson was trying to accomplish. After all, Link and his Hyrulian exploits were the hottest thing this side of Mario in Nintendo-land ó and success definitely breeds imitation in the world of gaming.

NFL Street (Xbox)

NFL Street review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

Once upon a time, EA Sports released a little gem called NBA Street. Inspired by the likes of NBA Jam, it stole the show with its ability to combine the NBA game and the style and flare of street basketball. The game's ambition quickly turned into a hit and, as any successful company would do, EA Sports quickly found a way to cash in on its flourishing product. Thus we have the creation of NFL Street - a brand of football that attempts to be as hip as its NBA brethren. Being the student of Blitz...

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW (PlayStation 2)

WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

WWE SmackDown vs. Raw is the sixth entry for the SD series, and youíd never know it by playing it. Perhaps itís the fact that this series is done in a narrow time table (with this being the sixth game in under five calendar years), but the end results are always lacking in some ways. As a long-time fan of Yukesí games (dating back to their first wrestling game, Toukon Retsuden, also the first 3D wrestling game), this series saddens me because I know what theyíre capable of, and itís much bette...

Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber review (N64)

Reviewed on February 17, 2005

In a trend that surrenders ground to only one exception, I simply donít stick with Strategy-RPGs. Iíll play through a game, whether it be Final Fantasy Tactics, any of the better members of the Fire Emblem or Shining Force series, or lesser known SNES titles such as Front Mission, Bahamut Lagoon, or FEDA: Emblem of Justice, and then Iíll set it aside. Once or twice in the next while I might pull the game aside for a quick runthrough, but thatís all. No, ...

RalliSport Challenge 2 (Xbox)

RalliSport Challenge 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 14, 2005

After being disappointed by how much the bad controls killed any sense of fun from the original, Iím amazed that Rallisport Challenge 2 turns out as good as it does. I came into it very hesitant, thinking that poor controls would once again kill the game. Well, luckily, that didnít happen, as work was done on them, leaving a game that not only looks and sounds great (the high points of the original), but one that also controls smoothly.

WWE Day of Reckoning (GameCube)

WWE Day of Reckoning review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 14, 2005

I came into WWE Day of Reckoning (or DoR, whichever you prefer) expecting the best wrestling game Iíve ever played. Its successor, WWE WrestleMania XIX provided the best actual wrestling experience in a game. Chain wrestling, diverse counter wrestling, believable technical wrestling, and brutal hardcore warfare were all made possible thanks to Yukes trying new things, and improving things, like sound effects, to plateaus they had never been before. Itís a shame its sequel fell short of even m...

The King of Fighters '95 (Game Boy)

The King of Fighters '95 review (GB)

Reviewed on February 14, 2005

It's 1995, a new year, a new contest. The host of this year's King of Fighters contest, Rugal, has sent out invitations, to last year's participants as well as newcomers, in hopes that they'll all join in the upcoming tournament. All seems well on the surface, but the contest is actually just a ploy by Rugal to capture, brainwash, and turn the best fighters into his own personal soldiers. Give this man the person of the year award, ladies and gentlemen!

Batman Forever (SNES)

Batman Forever review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 13, 2005

At first glance, Batman Forever probably seemed much more impressive than it actually is. They had the swinging commercial with the catchy Real Game Begins jingle airing at the time, which could easily lead to you believe that this game could capture the experience of being Batman in it's entirety, as well as accurately simulate reality in a mere 16-bits. Fortunately, we know better today, so the game doesn't result in utter disappointment.

R-Type Final (PlayStation 2)

R-Type Final review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 13, 2005

The Bydo Empire has been terrorizing the universe since about mid-eighties now and had no plans to stop. Well, that was until Irem decided to end the shooter series R-type with one last game. My incorrigible side didnít want to believe such nonsense ďOne of the greatest series in shooter history just canít end can it?Ē Much to my dismay, Iíd look like I was only getting one more go around against the Bydo Empire and all their evil machinations.

Blood Bath review (MAC)

Reviewed on February 13, 2005

If he had known it was going to be the last day of his life, Norbert Fitzsimmons wouldn't have gotten out of bed. On the way to his dead-end job at the State Institution for the Criminally Mentally Retarded, he pondered working on getting a GED in the hopes of someday making Manager at the Cheapo Music down the street. Before punching in, he chugged down the rest of the bourbon slug he prepared for breakfast; unsatisfying, but it had to do. Today was going to be an important day for the inmates ...

Zoo Keeper review (DS)

Reviewed on February 12, 2005

Tetris, a Russian-developed game for the Gameboy, was what sparked the handheld industry and allowed it to lift off the ground, with the original title selling more than 13 million copies. Despite being behind the console market in capabilities, Tetris proved that some games could only be real good on a handheld, illustrated by several console versions.

Die Hard Arcade (Saturn)

Die Hard Arcade review (SAT)

Reviewed on February 12, 2005

Dynamite Deka bears no relation to the classic action film Die Hard aside from basic plot similarities but, in a rare show of marketing genius, Sega noticed these similarities and brokered a fiendishly clever deal with 20th Century Fox. This corporate coupling gave birth to the 32bit polygonal brawler Die Hard Arcade, a refreshing and invigorating action adventure in its own right. After achieving modest success in smelly bowling alleys and grimy gum-floored arcades, Sega ...

Fighter & Attacker review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 11, 2005

As I was playing 1992 Namco shooter Fighter & Attacker, one question kept popping into my mind. No, it didnít involve me wondering how any self-respecting company could think ďFighter & AttackerĒ would be an attention-grabbing name ó this was a far more important matter. As I blew stuff up through the gameís eight levels, I just wanted to know one thing.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (Xbox)

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 10, 2005

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 may be the most addictive 2-D fighting game of them all. Unlike Capcom vs. SNK 2, it didnít rely on complicated fighting ďgroovesĒ or a fussy scoring system but on pure mayhem and oversized hyper combos! Luckily, those who never visit arcades or who are unfortunate not to have one in their area got an almost perfect port on their favourite home consoles. Capcom delved into many of their older titles, digging up a bunch of familiar faces as well as some obscure ones. Marve...
