Berserk: The Millennium Falcon (PlayStation 2)

Berserk: The Millennium Falcon review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 18, 2004

No longer content to wear a smiling yellow mask, death incarnate now dons a frightening visage of hollow-eyed contempt and clenched-teeth ferocity. The kindly divinities of biblical lore have fallen before the fourfold might of the Godhand, an unholy gathering of macabre cenobites inspired by Clive Barkerís hellraising quartet. Brought together by the baleful cry of a suicidal manís selfish prayer, grandmaster Void and his compatriots Slan, Ubik and Conrad have summoned a menagerie of grotesqu...

Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64)

Goldeneye 007 review (N64)

Reviewed on December 18, 2004

A tremendous earth-shattering explosion is heard from miles around. Surrounded by towering mountains, the echo is so forceful it feels as if the very fabric of time itself is collapsing. Reality seems to stand still as a bullet train speeds by, all the while slowly being engulfed in a crimson flame. Bodies are hurled across the barren tundra, overshadowed by the ominous night sky. In the midst of the chaos, a shadowy figure rises from the ruined aftermath of fiery scrap, unscathed. Turning off t...

Bloody Roar: Primal Fury (GameCube)

Bloody Roar: Primal Fury review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 18, 2004

The Gamecube hasn't had the best success in the fighting genre. Soul Caliber 2 and other multiconsole ports have dominated a market with only one prominent first party fighter, Super Smash Brothers Melee. Based off this logic, Hudson's Bloody Roar: Primal Fury, a basic rehash of its Playstation 2 counterpart and the third installment in the Bloody Roar series, attempted to take its slice of the pie. On one end of the spectrum, the release provides a responsive and beautiful entry for the genre s...

Banjo-Tooie (Nintendo 64)

Banjo-Tooie review (N64)

Reviewed on December 17, 2004

What happens when you stick an overly acerbic bird in the backpack of a bear and send them on a noble quest for the bearís ill-fated little sister, while managing to incorporate shamans, witches, musical notes, washing machines and puzzle pieces? The end result is Banjo-Tooie, the unforgettable sequel to the formerly weirdest game on the N64.

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition (PC)

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition review (PC)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

I could laboriously detail its six available gameplay modes, I could mention the staggering number of eight difficulty levels, and I could highlight its lasting appeal by mentioning the countless number of user-made modifications available for download Ė but no such exclamations can truly convey Unreal Tournamentís powerful essence. Itís the essence that can be vaguely understood only by recognizing the masterful design Unreal Tournament effortlessly exudes and the constant effort it demands fro...

Out of this World (PC)

Out of this World review (PC)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

Arbitrary catch-all labels they may be, but style and substance are useful terms. I'd like to submit a theory regarding these famously independent elements of game design: style and substance are not only separate, but opposing. I submit that slavish devotion to sumptuous visuals and high atmosphere can result in a game with a sensory bite that sullies your experience while it enriches it.

Moon Buggy (Commodore 64)

Moon Buggy review (C64)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

One of the golden rules of game development is that if a game is successful, rip-offs inevitably follow. Sometimes it's just a few good elements that are taken to be incorporated in a different game, and sometimes an attempt is made to reinvent the same game completely; and it's this latter category that usually goes wrong. Moon Buggy is a prime example of a game that tries to emulate a successful predecessor - Moon Patrol, in this case - and falls short by a mile.

Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 16, 2004

After a long while of anticipation, the fourth game in the now-legendary Metroid series hits the Gameboy Advance, allowing gamers to take their favorite, heavily armored female cyborg with them on long journeys. And they will not be disappointed by the sheer quality of the title: solid action, quick gameplay, good variety in areas and enemies, a handful of quite challenging bosses, and plenty of exploration. On the other hand, particularly to a Metroid veteran, there are two areas in which the g...

Kirby's Adventure (NES)

Kirby's Adventure review (NES)

Reviewed on December 14, 2004

Few platformer heroes can hope to match the versatility of Kirby. By swallowing his enemies and absorbing their powers, the pink puffball can gain an immense repretoire of moves ranging from basic melee attacks to awesome, screen-shattering abilities that clear entire fields of enemies. Of course, he can't do all of these at once - Kirby can hold only one power at a time, and enemies he swallows up while holding a power can only be spat out as a projectile.

NBA Street Vol. 2 (GameCube)

NBA Street Vol. 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 13, 2004

The first game in this series was the best arcade sports game ever created. But it wasn't without it's flaws. That's where Volume 2 comes in and completely re-writes what an arcade style experience is supposed to be. NBA Street's mantle has been usurped and even veterans of the series will be pleasantly surprised.

Wave Race 64 (Nintendo 64)

Wave Race 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on December 12, 2004

Something barely seen in todayís gaming environment are the realistic racing games. Titles that are devoid of rocket launchers and hyper plasma cannons are a thing of the past. Just looking attentively at the release list for the next generation consoles makes that all too apparent. However, in the quiet beginnings of the classic 64 bit era was Wave Race 64, a serene and submerged Jet Ski racer devoid of the flashy gimmicks and the overrated action attachment. Despite its dated and si...

Barbie Horse Adventure: Mystery Ride (PC)

Barbie Horse Adventure: Mystery Ride review (PC)

Reviewed on December 12, 2004

The title Barbieís Horse Adventures could fit way more than a video game. They could turn it into the title for a movie, or perhaps a series of books. Maybe Mattel could make it into a set of dolls for all the little kids. Alternately, a guy named Steve could use the name for a pay-for-porn site and charge people to watch hot blondes get it on with our equestrian friends. Oh the possibilities. However, a Google search only shows Barbieís Horse Adventures as a game, so as of press t...

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Nintendo 64)

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards review (N64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2004

Once a Kirby game is released, you know itís going to drift away from the pack. Itís going to be innovative, itís going to be simple, itís going to be clean, and you know itís going to be fun to play, even if all the other aspects fall to pieces. Itís just that trademark stability that motivates my purchase. No Kirby games have let me down thus far, and as you can already guess from this blatant presentation, this one bears no exceptions.

Quasar (Commodore 64)

Quasar review (C64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2004

The only thing that made Quasar noteworthy on my collection of C64 floppies was that it was the only game I had that started with a Q. When you are six years old, that fascinates you. Q is a mysterious letter. You have no clue how to pronounce the name. It logically follows that it's got to be a cool game. Perhaps the designers of Quasar used the same reasoning. Slap on a nice sounding name, rip off a Commodore game that *did* work out - in this case, Buck Rogers - and success is assured, no? No...

Moon Patrol (Commodore 64)

Moon Patrol review (C64)

Reviewed on December 09, 2004

In an age where the appeal of a game is largely determined by how long it takes to play it through, going back to a title where you're happy to live through the first five minutes can be very refreshing. Arcade classic Moon Patrol spawned a Commodore 64 port in 1983, and it's one of those deliciously simple and yet brutally difficult games that the Commodore saw a lot of that year. As the name implies, you are patrolling the moon in a weird blue vehicle with square wheels. As the screen relentle...

XS Moto review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 08, 2004

In this world of ours, there are top-notch and "middle-of-the-road" developers and publishers. Yet, there are still the "value" (AKA "Bottom of the Barrel") publishers and developers. Such a label tends to stick to the company for a very long time, not that they care. Many of the value publishers only care about making money with games, with very little regard of the quality of the game. In any case, these companies just want to have it produced in the fastest and cheapest way possible, usually ...

IK+ (Game Boy Advance)

IK+ review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 08, 2004

In today's world, there are plenty of old, outdated video games that are yearning to be remade on a new console. Whether they do well or not is up to the company who handles it, each one being able to bring it back in many different ways, for better or for worse. But how they can go about it depends on how the game needs to be updated. Some can stick the game in a compilation, some can remake the game much like how "Double Dragon" "River City Ransom EX" were handled. But the most dangerous by fa...
