Power Factory Featuring C+C Music Factory (Sega CD)

Power Factory Featuring C+C Music Factory review (SCD)

Reviewed on November 15, 2004

C+C Music Factory: Make My Video is one of several Make My Video games that were released for the Sega CD. This one features the band, C+C Music Factory. (Other Make My Video games feature bands like Kriss Kross and Inyx, just in case you're wondering.) Yeah, I have never heard of this band either before I played this game. But you have probably heard a couple of their songs. Anyway, the main premise of this game is to create your own music video to one of the band's hi...

Civilization II (PlayStation)

Civilization II review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 15, 2004

Ever dreamt of being king? Civilization II lets you do just that. Become the leader of one from over twenty civilizations. Build some cities. Explore your world. Discover amazing technologies. Conquer rival nations. Negotiate with friendly nations. Then if you survive all of that, you can take your country to the outer limits. In Civilization II, the possibilities are endless.

Miss Spider's Tea Party (PlayStation)

Miss Spider's Tea Party review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 14, 2004

Video games for the younger generation. That’s what the world needs more of. Games like this one here. Games like Miss Spider’s Tea Party. Educational games that teach youngsters a few bits of basic education, yet providing some wholesome fun while doing it. Okay, so they might be a little educational and beneficial to little kids. But how is it as a video game? You know, how’s its “wholesome fun” part? Well . . . . . .

The Animals! (Sega CD)

The Animals! review (SCD)

Reviewed on November 13, 2004

For some odd reason, I have this game in my possession. And for an even odder reason, I actually paid forty bucks for this game. I mean, forty bucks! Well, was it forty bucks well spent? To put it mildly, no, it wasn't. Animals is just an interactive encyclopedia that focuses entirely on the animal kingdom. And for some odd reason, this "game" was released for the Sega CD. Well, at least I know that one copy of this game was sold.

Adventures of Lolo (NES)

Adventures of Lolo review (NES)

Reviewed on November 13, 2004

Quick, what's the first thing you think of when you hear the words "puzzle game"? Tetris, perhaps? Yet, if we probe deeper into Tetris and its clones, we see that they aren't really puzzle games at all, at least not by the true definition of the word. The focus isn't on thinking; it's on fast reflexes and quick observations. No, Tetris is more of an action game than a true puzzle game. A puzzle should be puzzling (duh), forcing you to come up with a solution and overcome obstacles. Think f...

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link (NES)

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link review (NES)

Reviewed on November 13, 2004

It's a sad fact that many people tend to dismiss this masterpiece simply due to the fact that it doesn't play like the rest of the Zelda games. It's the outcast of the family, tolerated perhaps, but often described as "a good game, but...." Quite frankly, that's not fair. Ignore the way the Zelda series has become, ignore all the celebrated history of Zelda that came on the SNES and onward. Imagine the feeling of having a new Zelda game, one that is admittedly quite different in gameplay but...

Nickelodeon GUTS (SNES)

Nickelodeon GUTS review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 11, 2004

When I was a kid, I loved Nickelodeon. It was full of great cartoons like “Rocko’s Modern life” and “ Ren and Stimpy” which were damn funny then and probably are still funny now. Nick GUTS, on the other hand was crap, it always was crap and it will never be anything but crap. The reason why Nick decided to make a rubbish show into a game astounds me. They should have left it as a show but to cash in on more dough, they created a monster. GUTS was about teams of kids playing menial mini-games ...

Dragon Quest I & II (SNES)

Dragon Quest I & II review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 11, 2004

Back in the day, Enix hit on a great idea. For the most part, role-playing games (at least the ones I was playing) were non-linear dungeon crawls like Wizardry and Ultima — where your goal was to collect a certain number of key items and then accomplish whatever it took to beat the game. Sure, these games were fun, but they also could be quite tedious — especially considered that the player would be forced to hover over a pad of graph paper to painstakingly chart every move they made. This facto...

World Destruction League: Thunder Tanks (PlayStation)

World Destruction League: Thunder Tanks review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 09, 2004

Sometimes I wonder whether or not some people know what a truly bad game is like. Every now and then a game comes out that exemplifies everything that can possibly go wrong with a game, the kind of game that makes you question the existence of quality assurance tests. World Destruction League: Thunder Tanks is one of those games. The only incentive to play it is to get a good feel for what a truly bad game is like. This game is a monstrosity that has no redeeming qualities of which to speak.

The Amazing Maze Game (Arcade)

The Amazing Maze Game review (ARC)

Reviewed on November 08, 2004

Connoisseurs of minimalism, rejoice - your idol rests here. It is a 24x26 square with openings at each end, and two nameless, faceless, worthless icons squaring off (no pun intended) against each other in a race to the finish. The box is filled with lines representing walls which are spaced just so, allowing your geometric figure to wend its way through corridors as black as the infinite vacuum of space. What reward lies at the end of these bleak hallways? None. Does hope spring eternal for our ...

Tecmo Bowl (NES)

Tecmo Bowl review (NES)

Reviewed on November 07, 2004

Remember the glory days of the NES, where all games were great and new and so much better than anything since? Unfortunately, these glory days only existed in that fantasy world known as nostalgia. Games we thought were perfect are, when you look at them with a critical eye, too frustrating, too simple, too unbalanced, too hard to control, or too slow. They were great back then because there was nothing better back then and because we didn't know any better. And we did have fun with them, despit...

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on November 07, 2004

You're looking at the original in a series that is extremely well praised, for obvious reasons. I gradually found myself falling in love with Super Metroid, one of the most pristine 2-D games known to man, and very quickly fell in love with Prime years later. And, for some strange reason, I had fond memories of playing the original as a kid. Between those fond memories and the near perfection of those latter two games, I figured this would surely hold an honorable place in the NES library, stand...

Blaster Master (NES)

Blaster Master review (NES)

Reviewed on November 07, 2004

Why did I love this game as a child? For I, like practically everyone else, did enjoy it during the glory days of the NES. And now I sit, an older and wiser person, and I try to remember why it gave me so much joy. I do this because it is no longer enjoyable, because I currently find the game to be, while decent, not all that special. Was it just the cool name? Was it the fact that you were in a cool looking rover that jumped? Was it the multiple styles of play? Perhaps it was a combination of t...

Cobra Command (Sega CD)

Cobra Command review (SCD)

Reviewed on November 06, 2004

Gaming vultures (Cathartes bokosuka) love to peck at the defenseless corpses of perished consoles, gouging out the most nauseous remnants of inhumanity. With its library of full-motion video games, some of which lack enough frames of animation to literally qualify as “full-motion”, the Sega CD serves many a dish for these voracious, merciless, insatiable, sadomasochistic scavengers. I’m not like that. I don’t derive sensual pleasure from feeding on decomposition; I look for the strong ...

Suikoden (PlayStation)

Suikoden review (PSX)

Reviewed on November 06, 2004

Good, but not great – this is the tragic theme that pervades Suikoden, a competent game that has received more praise than it deserves. Many of the features Suikoden fans purport as its most distinguishing aspects are actually its greatest flaws. Make no mistake: Konami’s foray into the role-playing genre is a solid one, but their inexperience with the genre is glaring: the result is a highly generic role-playing game that fails to evoke the grandness that allows a console role-playing game to t...

Truxton review (GEN)

Reviewed on November 05, 2004

Back when I was younger, I remember seeing Truxton in an arcade. After wasting a few quarters on the lonely coin-op, I was in love. As a lad used to the stale, poorly-ported crap on the Atari 2600 and 7800, this vertically-scrolling game seemed a godsend.

Soviet Strike (Saturn)

Soviet Strike review (SAT)

Reviewed on November 04, 2004

There's a crisis going on in Eastern Europe. Shadowman, an ex-KGB general, is in the midst of raging war against Russia, and he's got enough firepower to obliterate the entire country. That's where STRIKE comes in. Consisting of a masterful tactician, a highly skilled hacker, a news reporter that covers up STRIKE's tracks, and a number of ace copilots, their job is to stop potential wars before they even begin. And they need to stop Shadowman's cause while it's still just a rumor. Each of these ...

Basketball (Atari 2600)

Basketball review (A2600)

Reviewed on November 01, 2004

The “Launch 20” for the Atari 2600 contained 5 sports titles (6 if you consider Flag Capture a sport). 25% of the initial release catalog was dedicated to sports gaming. That’s not a surprising number here in 2004. We can go back to the launches of the X-Box and Game Cube and see that sports game development was a highly discussed topic both pre and post-launch. In 1990, the then recently released Sega Genesis advertised heavily on its wide variety of (at the time) incredibly realistic sport...
