Pikmin 2 (GameCube)

Pikmin 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 08, 2004

Pikmin 2 has a lot to live up to. Its predecessor, Pikmin, was one of those beautiful, typifying moments for Nintendo when they released a genre-bending new franchise that really lived up to their name. Pikmin was my favorite first-wave software title on the GameCube, and even in a post-Wind Waker world it remains at the top of my list. So Pikmin 2 is faced with the realistically obvious but easier-said-than-done task of any sequel—the task of proving itself better than the previous installment,...

XDR: X-Dazedly-Ray (Genesis)

XDR: X-Dazedly-Ray review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 08, 2004

Let’s just cut to the chase — the only interesting thing in Unipacc’s Genesis shooter XDR: X-Dazedly-Ray is its name. I mean, what the hell is an “X-Dazedly-Ray”? It’s the sort of thing one can spend infinite amounts of time trying to figure out. Is it an X-ray gone horribly wrong? Probably not. Is it the game’s final boss? I can see this being the case — I certainly became dazed trying to make out that ship’s many attacks against the rapidly scrolling background. Or is this “X-Dazedly-Ray” some...

Silent Hill 2 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 07, 2004

A few years ago, I was one of the many people who assumed Silent Hill was just going to be another Resident Evil. Turns out I was wrong, and Silent Hill actually turned out be a truly scary game with an original storyline. Sure, the storyline was confusing as hell (pun intended), but the atmosphere is where the game shined despite some spotty graphics and “collect the keys” gameplay. With Silent Hill 2, the graphics have been upgraded, the storyline is coherent, th...

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (GameCube)

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 07, 2004

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. When you hear that name, what kind of outlandish thoughts spring to mind? Is it deemed a "kiddy" game forever, never to be given a second glance? Is it a cool new innovation -- a Mario RPG -- that you would like to try out? Or perhaps it's the sequel to a superb game on the N64 that you can't wait to get your hands on? No matter what notions you might have, know that this is a exceptional game that takes the very RPG genre as we know it two steps forward.

Silent Hill 4: The Room (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 4: The Room review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 07, 2004

Another Silent Hill game and I find myself reviewing it. It is actually hard to believe that there is a 4th addition to the series. I can remember when the first one came out and playing it for the first time. And now, years later, here is Silent Hill 4.

Pokémon: LeafGreen Version (Game Boy Advance)

Pokémon: LeafGreen Version review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 05, 2004

Time and again I have been down those all too familiar roads. If you have never test-drived a Pokemon title then I would not say you have been missing out on anything, but I still would stare at you curiously. Though numerous in number, each version that has sprung up has at least shown some diversity. Whether it is the addition of hundreds of peculiar monsters or a slight graphical upgrade, every single one has at least been moderately fresh. However, with the arrival of Pokemon: Leaf Gr...

Hexen: Beyond Heretic (PlayStation)

Hexen: Beyond Heretic review (PSX)

Reviewed on December 05, 2004

Hexen for the PSX is one of those games that you will only want to play when you are either 1.) bored out of your wits, 2.) masochistic, or 3.) wanting to appreciate your better games. It can really only be described as a total lackluster effort that is so bad, it would be better to take a lighter and watch this thing slowly melt. After all, horrible video games only have so many uses, but Hexen has even fewer because it’s not just horrible; it’s downright the base scum of video gaming!

Qix (Game Boy)

Qix review (GB)

Reviewed on December 03, 2004

You're running down a narrow dark corridor, being chased by an ominous sparkling orb that just doubled in size. There's no worries, though, as you're able to outrun it, due to its slow pace. So every thing's fine....at the moment. Suddenly, another orb approaches you from up ahead. Now surrounded, they both take their time, savoring the victorious moment before they evaporate you. At this point, you're running out of options, and attacking them is out of the question, since they're pretty much ...

Halo 2 (Xbox)

Halo 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 03, 2004

Reality appears as something of an enigma when you are torn through two phases of attention. While the first phase describes our monotonous daily life, the second is the imaginative and absorbing realm of gaming. One can say that I was a little too distracted by the arrival of Halo 1. The title took everyone completely by surprise when it arrived with the black box we have all come to adore. Those quick to judge easily walked on by and took it for a common mediocre shooter. However, peopl...

Skies of Arcadia Legends (GameCube)

Skies of Arcadia Legends review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 02, 2004

Remakes and ports of older games seem to be a growing trend in the Gamecube game library. Beginning with Resident Evil and continuing with a string of Sega titles, including Sonic Adventure 2, Evolution Worlds, and this title; Skies of Arcadia Legends. A heralded RPG for the Dreamcast, SoAL's strong gameplay and emphasis on exploration now breathes fresh air into a Gamecube system in dire need of a hit in the genre. However, the skies aren't completely clear in Arcadia, clouds of age seem to be ...

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 02, 2004

Starting from the top, everyone who is anyone obviously knows about Mario. The tubby, yet extremely agile plumber has made his essence known throughout the platform world. With the coming of the DS, the first ever 3D Mario game from eight years ago has resurfaced. At first, I did not think that they would be able to port something so magnificent to a mere portable system. However, I greatly underestimated the DS. Super Mario 64 DS takes everything I loved about the original and compliment...

Mega Man 6 review (NES)

Reviewed on December 01, 2004

If you’ve never played a Mega Man game before and decide to start with this particular cartridge, you’ll probably feel compelled to scornfully look at the mediocre rating I’ve handed out and condemn me as a fool. Your blood may start boiling — you may even feel compelled to tell me your dog has more sense than I when it comes to video gaming.

Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete (PlayStation)

Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 29, 2004

I knew a girl once. We got along perfectly. She was the most interesting and fascinating creature I ever met. I could spend hours with her, always happy, sharing the good and the bad times. It seemed like every time I talked to her I learned something new. Despite being perfect for me, she did have her flaws though. She was kind of chubby… ok ok, she was pretty damn fat. She also wore thick glasses that seemed to triple her eye size when she was wearing them. I was not shallow though, so I staye...

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 (PlayStation 2)

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 29, 2004

I’ve never really been into Japanese shows like Digimon and Yugi-oh. Even when I was younger and all my friends were collecting pokemon cards and following the show religiously I gave it the cold shoulder. So when I played this game I wasn’t interested in the Dragon Ball Z series at all, I wasn’t expecting anything from it either. I’d heard from countless people that the past Dragon Ball Z games were horrible. Why would this game be any different? Boy was I wrong.

Mega Man 7 (SNES)

Mega Man 7 review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 29, 2004

How often is it that you come across someone... or something, that at first, you like and think that it shows lots of promise? Then, it goes further and further up, and then you grow to like it all the more? And then, out of nowhere, it just drops to amazingly low levels and evolves into something that is just plain putrid? I know, it has happened to me several times before. Out of all of those "special" occasions, the one with my worst memories belongs within the Mega Man series.

Jewel Knights: Crusaders (PC)

Jewel Knights: Crusaders review (PC)

Reviewed on November 28, 2004

If Jewel Knights - Crusaders serves as any indication, the Japanese company responsible for its creation utilizes what one would believe to be a common marketing strategy, making their products synonymous with their name. This particular title is advertised as pure farce; a parody that pokes fun at sentai-battle shows like Sailor Moon or the infamous Power Rangers. Certainly, it succeeds in pointing out the most ridiculous aspects of the genre. However, these forced moments of levity...

Feel the Magic: XY/XX review (DS)

Reviewed on November 27, 2004

There are really only two effective words for describing Feel the Magic: XY/XX, also known as I Would Die For You; quirky and zany. A love story strung through a series of mini-games, Feel the Magic is easily considered as Sega’s successful experiment with the Nintendo DS hardware.

Chrono Cross review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 27, 2004

From conceivance to deadline, there was only one possibility for Chrono Cross, and that was complete and utter failure. The growing giant Squaresoft realized this and, loathe to tarnish their growing reputation as a divine RPG developer, decided to make Chrono Cross an indirect sequel to the highly fabled Chrono Trigger, granting Chrono Cross commercial success. Unfortunately, its degree of caliber was much lower. Trying to cash in on the growing userbase of graphic w...
