Kolibri (Sega 32X)

Kolibri review (32X)

Reviewed on January 11, 2005

Novotrade is barely known in the gaming world nowadays. The company themselves may not be known but their classic game “Ecco the Dolphin” probably will. Another game by Novotrade that didn’t become as popular as the Ecco series was “Kolibri” a game similar to Ecco in many ways but had a few original concepts. It was only released on the Sega 32X, the failed console that Sega probably don’t want to hear about ever again. It hit the stores 1995 which was when the gaming world was slowly changing f...

Dragon Knight II (Turbografx-CD)

Dragon Knight II review (TGCD)

Reviewed on January 10, 2005

Enter the realm of Phoenix and take a brief look at your surroundings. You’ll see them hanging around the town cemetery, serving drinks at the crowded tavern, standing by idly as transactions take place within the local shops. Girls with blonde hair, girls with blue hair, and girls with green hair. Girls dressed elegantly and girls dressed in bunny outfits. Cute girls. Sly girls. Vivacious girls. Beautiful girls. And not a man in sight.

Comix Zone (Genesis)

Comix Zone review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 10, 2005

Traditionally, the side-scrolling beat-‘em-up takes place in the filthy metropolises where transgression prevails. Youthful but careless boyfriends team up with musclebound mayors in efforts to retrieve kidnapped girlfriends and to send crime lords to justice. Along the way, they face four hundred fellows named “Bred” and eat the radioactive ham that they find crammed into dumpsters to replenish the ultimate determiner of possible success: the energy bar. An inestimable number of thugs stand bet...

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time review (N64)

Reviewed on January 09, 2005

There's no way I can make an introduction to this game that doesn't sound melodramatic, but I really don't care. No matter how sappy it might sound, to be completely honest this game changed my life. It shocked me out of complacency about videogames (or, to use the overused and irrelevant phrase, my casual gamer status) and led me to realize that games can and should be far greater than mere time wasters; far more important than something to do for fun. It grabbed my life, dominated my though...

Parasite Eve (PlayStation)

Parasite Eve review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 08, 2005

It's the night before Christmas, and the visage of the Statue of Liberty is solemn. A panning camera slides briefly across the New York cityscape, but pauses to contemplate this peculiarity. A sparse snow is falling, and Liberty's lips are puckered in a pout, her head tilted downward looking worryingly at the ever-present hustle below, a thin blotch cascading from the melancholy right eye and down the cheek. Is it a tear?

X-Men Legends (PlayStation 2)

X-Men Legends review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 08, 2005

If X-Men Legends was a Diablo expansion pack, would anybody care? What if it was named Final Fight 4? For all the allure provided by the possibility of controlling a squad of X-Men, X-Men Legends comes up amazingly short with tired game design and an overall lack of excitement. This is a cardinal sin for an X-Men game, a comic book series which is anything but tired.

Shadow Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 08, 2005

As the camera pans down on the street corner outside a church, we see the bloodied and scattered remains of a body strewn all over the cobbled street. This gruesome collection of bloody flesh and bones is all that remains of a priest who was murdered here by something that couldn’t possibly be human. The body is desecrated beyond recognition. And to make matters worse, the preist's daughter, Alice, is missing. It looks as if she may meet a similar fate. Shadow Hearts establishes a very da...

Dragon Ball Z Budokai (GameCube)

Dragon Ball Z Budokai review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 07, 2005

I love Dragon Ball Z and I always get harassed by my parents and my girlfriend about it. It’s something that seems to be part of my life nowadays and no matter how many times I get the third degree about my pile of video cassettes and Graphic novels I still find myself reading them or watching the show quite frequently. However, when it comes to playing Dragon Ball games, I’m usually a little wary. I’ve played a good few of them on various systems, some of them have been great fun like DBZ: ...

Rainbow Islands (NES)

Rainbow Islands review (NES)

Reviewed on January 07, 2005

A while back, I had the coolest idea ever. Rather than a side scrolling platformer, I would make a vertical scrolling game. Jumping from platform to platform is what truly defines how fun a Mario clone is, and so how about a game where you're jumping all the time? How about a game where your goal is to climb a tower, constantly going up? It's brilliant! Forever climbing, you will feel the satisfaction of a well timed jump far more often than in Mario or Sonic. And best of all, it's never b...

Killzone (PlayStation 2)

Killzone review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 06, 2005

Killzone is the newest FPS for the PlayStation 2, developed by Guerilla. It has been widely acknowledged as being the main competition for the XBox's Halo 2, but I'm going to break the trend, and not compare the two games in this review to remain as unbiased as possible.

Tales of Phantasia (SNES)

Tales of Phantasia review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 06, 2005

It’s amazing how a role-playing game can do just about everything right, but still fall short because of one glaring flaw. Amazing — but possible, as Tales of Phantasia proved to me in a decisive manner.

Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO (GameCube)

Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 04, 2005

Capcom hit the big time with their “Street Fighter 2” series, a collection of fighting games that probably made fighting games what they are nowadays. Ryu and Ken are almost household names now, Street Fighter 2 rocked the gaming world back in the early nineties and is still a force today, even after all of this time. SNK were quite prolific in their creations but never reached the true status that Capcom achieved. They developed a few great fighting game series that made it big like “The King o...

Jak 3 (PlayStation 2)

Jak 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 03, 2005

Jak II was one of those experience that every gamer either absolutely loved or completely loathed. The game strayed from everything the first Jak game stood for, in that it took a much serious outlook, and it based itself more on the GTA series, that it's own original concept. Jak III does not change any of that, as it truly is a sequel to Jak II, keeping the same basic idea of mission based gameplay, complicated story, and a fairly serious demeanor. Despite that, there is more humor thrown alon...

Jak II (PlayStation 2)

Jak II review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 03, 2005

Jak and Daxter was a platforming game based on exploration, simple fight patterns, cool minigames, and lush colorful scenery. All that has changed in Jak II, for no longer is the Jak series perfect for kids of all ages and instead this game is only a little less intense version of Grand Theft Auto.

Sonic Heroes (GameCube)

Sonic Heroes review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 02, 2005

According to Jak and Ratchet, platformers should have big freakin guns and lots of vehicles and stuff. Sly says we should have stealth. And even the king, Mario himself, seems to think we should spend our time collecting stars. I feel like I'm Charlie Brown walking amid all the aluminum trees, searching for the true Christmas spirit, or platforming spirit as the case may be. Doesn't anyone know what platforming's all about? And then I see it, the only real Christmas tree there. Sure, it's ...

Metroid II: Return of Samus (Game Boy)

Metroid II: Return of Samus review (GB)

Reviewed on January 01, 2005

Label me elitist, dub me curmudgeonly, call me “old school” to a fault. Certainly, I originally purchased Metroid II out of a sense of obligation -- the cart being the follow-up to my favorite NES game -- and with little desire to actually enjoy myself while playing it. I perceived injustice being done -- I allowed myself to view this black-and-white atrocity as little more than an outright insult to an undeniable classic, an effort lacking in heart as much as in hype from a...
