Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on November 26, 2004

They lurk on moonless lunar cycles, being restricted by nothing but their mindless wanderings. Their hair has all fallen out, their skin has rotted with no trace but an odor that can knock a person out, their eyes smashed like jelly and decomposed by wriggling worms. One cannot help but writhe in the horrific sight of them; they are the zombies.

Karateka (NES)

Karateka review (NES)

Reviewed on November 26, 2004

To say that martial-arts films were a popular trend in the 80’s would be the understatement of a lifetime. Anything martial-arts instantly became a hit amongst the population. Seemingly, people just couldn’t refuse the ignorant stereotyping of a respectable form of self-defense. And so this A-rate combat style gave inspiration to a barrage of B-rate movies, which in turn gave inspiration to a string of D-rate games. At the bottom of these contemptuous pile of crap, we have Karateka. ...

Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle (Genesis)

Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

So, after a successive run on the Master System, was Sega’s then-mascot ready for the big time? After releasing five games on Sega’s 8-bit system it was running low on appeal and most Sega fans were eager to shelve their Master System for a while and plug into a then-new dimension of gaming. After the release of a few titles such as “Altered Beast” for example Sega decided to bring the Kidd back for a whole new dimension. Did it work and was the fantastic charm that the first game produced or di...

Action Fighter (Sega Master System)

Action Fighter review (SMS)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

Action Fighter was always going to be a success in the arcades. For its time, it was bright, colourful, had great highscore potential and it had great appeal for the steering wheel that you would use to control your almost suicidal vehicle. But with the steering wheel absent from this console version, it is instantly an uphill battle for Action Fighter to gain favour in the eyes of competent gamers. Action Fighter may have been quite addictive in its previous incarnation, but as with most Arcade...

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$ (GameCube)

WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$ review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

Nintendo always strive for creative and original titles, they have a knack for being able to make money out of anything. They could make the most boring and stupid title and it would still sell millions. They’ve tried so many ideas and the majority of them have been praised highly by fan-boy and sensible gamer alike. Whether it’s silly storylines to platformers or sticking their mascots in a sports game it tends to be outlandish, leaving an impact on the mind of the gamer permanently.

The Punisher (Arcade)

The Punisher review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 25, 2004

Don't talk to Frank Castle about anger issues. He's a walking one. But then, you would be too if you and your family witnessed a botched mob hit and the hitmen killed your entire family to prevent being ratted out.

Ninja Baseball Bat Man (Arcade)

Ninja Baseball Bat Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

You know you’re playing a beat-‘em-up if your brutish, hulking warrior, hellbent on vengeance, finds his only respite from his henchmen-bloodying efforts in the form of consuming a hamburger he found in a dumpster.

FIFA International Soccer (Game Gear)

FIFA International Soccer review (GG)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

A good handheld football game is about as common as Wales qualifying for a major Championship (and I should know, I still have nightmares about the Romania and Russia play-offs). Strike that, it’s rarer. There isn’t one portable computer game out there which can genuinely be considered a definitive simulation of the beautiful game. They’re all pretty much terrible. Until Konami bring their Pro Evo series to the DS and PSP, it’s unlikely that a quality handheld footie game will ever see the light...

The Curse of Monkey Island (PC)

The Curse of Monkey Island review (PC)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

Ah, the point-and-click adventure! As primitive as they may seem in the days of analogue control and full-3D environments, there’s no denying the enjoyment of a nice, slow-paced, puzzle-driven adventure. The Monkey Island series has to be my favourite point-and-click adventure series. Despite the taxing puzzles, you’ll rarely not be smiling as the games pour on their razor-sharp wit and humour at almost every possible interval. Fans of the series will be happy to know that, despite the huge grap...

NFL Quarterback Club (Game Gear)

NFL Quarterback Club review (GG)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

Back in the day, NFL Quarterback Club was one of the daddies of American Football. Many of its incarnations were mightily superior to its Madden equivalent. But now on the Game Gear we see one of Acclaim's earlier attempts at cornering the American Football market.

The Pirates of Dark Water (SNES)

The Pirates of Dark Water review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 24, 2004

Growing up, one of the highlights of my Saturday morning cartoon watching was actually one of the last I ever viewed. The Pirates of Dark Water, while possessing its comedic moments, was much more somber in mood than the average exploit of Bugs Bunny or the Flintstones.

Mega Man 6 review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2004

There's a scrumptious triple fudge sundae in front of you. Take a bite. Delicious, isn't it? Take another. Each taste is seemingly better than the last as you enter a state of fattening nirvana. But eventually, your brain decides enough is enough and starts to override your taste buds. Each new bite will become a chore, each new taste will start to sicken you. Besides, by this point all the ingredients have run together to create some sort of gooey sludge anyways. Something that was once...

Mega Man 3 (NES)

Mega Man 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2004

From playgrounds to the internet, from the 80s to today, the battle has quietly been fought. Just what was the best Mega Man game? Although the struggle for dominance between FF6 and FF7 or the Zelda games are legendary, the lesser stature of the Blue Bomber causes most to blissfully ignore the question. But some do care about which game best represents the series, and they are sure to let their opinions be known. This always boils down to a fight between the dominant MM2 and its jealous underst...

Columns (Game Gear)

Columns review (GG)

Reviewed on November 20, 2004

If asked what your favourite puzzle games are, most you would probably reply mentioning at least one version of Tetris. Be it Tetris Worlds or Tetrisphere, the Russian puzzler is by far the world’s favourite computer game puzzle. There are, however, many alternatives to Tetris, but few which can rival its simple yet addictive gamplay. Sega though, have always liked a good challenge, and an arcade-like puzzler may be what is required to topple the Russian King from his throne of computer puzzling...

Second Sight (GameCube)

Second Sight review (GCN)

Reviewed on November 18, 2004

Second Sight’s sudden release was a bit of a surprise really. Not even the few expectant forum gamers (having already waded their way through Psi-Ops) would have foreseen this third-person action-adventure being released at the beginning of September (UK release) without any real hype whatsoever since it was first unveiled just a few short months ago. A surprise indeed, but a generally pleasant one to boot.

Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis)

Sonic the Hedgehog review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 18, 2004

So, why was Nintendo kicking Sega’s butt early on in the rivalry between the two companies? Personally, I’ve always felt it was because Nintendo had all the recognizable characters. They had Mario, Link, Mega Man, Simon Belmont and others. Our friends at Sega could boast little more than some Alex Kidd fellow. It wasn’t that the Master System was overloaded with inferior games or anything like that — it was just that they never really had a good marketable character to captivate the imagination ...

Super Street Fighter II Turbo (Arcade)

Super Street Fighter II Turbo review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2004

Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo was the finale in the SF2 series. It took all eight world warriors from the original yet now decrepit classic, and added in the four playable boss characters in the upgraded to perfection Championship edition. With a turbo feature added on they created Street Fighter 2 turbo, a slicker and speedier version of Championship edition that also allowed all characters to be played. They kept squeezing the orange until they created enough juice that produced the ultimate S...

3D Pinball: Space Cadet review (PC)

Reviewed on November 15, 2004

3D Pinball: Space Cadet is really just your typical pinball game. The main difference with this game is that it comes free with any Windows 98 or higher operating system. But with that fact, it also means that there are a few flaws with the game. Things that are free are rarely any good. Rarely.

Critical Depth (PlayStation)

Critical Depth review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 15, 2004

Critical Depth is a very enjoyable action game. It takes vehicular combat to a whole new level, literally. Many people may just find this as another Twisted Metal wannabe, but it’s is different is so many ways. There is a better storyline in Critical Depth, and well, its underwater. Maneuvering with submarines rather than cars is a totally different experience. That’s enough proof for me that it’s an original game.

Jupiter Strike review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 15, 2004

Oh man. It’s Jupiter Strike. I knew I would have to face this day sooner or later. It’s now time to write this review. In Jupiter Strike, you fly a spacecraft through outer space while dodging enemy fire and taking down some ships of your own. The game seems typical, right? WRONG! This game is a lot worse than most typical games. The graphics are passable, but everything else in the game is terrible. The sound, controls, storyline, gameplay, and replay value, well, ...
