Grand Theft Auto III (PC)

Grand Theft Auto III review (PC)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

As controversial a reputation the original Grand Theft Auto had on its release, I canít confess to ever enjoying it. The only way to realistically collect enough money to advance to the next stage was by doing jobs for bosses, and these jobs were often far too frustrating and tedious to hold my attention for long. The sequel, Grand Theft Auto 2, heralded a colourful graphical improvement and the missions were generally more amusing, although it was far from a classic.

Metal Gear (NES)

Metal Gear review (NES)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

Back in 1987, a creative young man named Hideo Kojima was assigned the task of heading the development of an action game by the top dogs at Konami. The then-unknown Kojima wanted to cook up an original concept that he would get recognition for, and yet another generic army blaster wouldnít make the grade. Therefore, he needed a twist. This twist would make him famous, and basically involved an essential element of stealth. If the player didnít hide from the enemy and sneak from A to B, th...

Darius Twin review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

Shooters. The darling of the hardcore croud, the games those elitist gamers heap praises upon. I've never cared for them, personally. Gradius, R-Type, and the like just never appealed to me in any way, appearing too unforgiving, too dependant on rote memorization, too much a twitch type game for a person like me who can't even get past the first level in Contra. But I figured the genre deserved a second chance, that I had better actually give it a shot before I could feel completely justifie...

Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors (Game Boy Advance)

Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors review (GBA)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

Why? Why for the love of all that is righteous in this world canít there be a decent Dragonball Z game, or portable fighting game for that matter? That is probably what I continued to say to myself time and again, after I disgustedly played through one terrible title after another. The only reasonably decent Dragonball Z title that had come out would have to be the Budokai series, but even those were sub-par. For those that are out of the loop, Dragonball Z is a very popular anime series, based ...

Ice Climber (NES)

Ice Climber review (NES)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

As I was playing through Super Smash Brothers: Melee the other day, the thought occurred to me on just what game the Ice Climbers were from anyway. It seemed like they were the only characters from the list I had never heard of. On further inspection I found out they had their own game on the NES, so I got me a copy and had a go. Now Ice Climbers is a very innovative approach at the platform genre, with its one unique trait of moving vertically, rather than horizontally. Your point...

Asheron's Call: Dark Majesty (PC)

Asheron's Call: Dark Majesty review (PC)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

The sun fades beyond the Mountain of Lethe, as the darkness of night sweeps over the land. The ethereal wisps can be seen fluttering throughout the night sky and the twin moons gleam a powerful glow on the cities around the world. A group of travelers leave the pub and grab their swords, shields, wands, and bows, and prepare to venture into the wilderness. As the fellowship continues on, their power can be sensed by nearly every being in the area, and enemies fall before them. As the regions get...

Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox)

Otogi: Myth of Demons review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

The moon ascends and illuminates the dark and barren wasteland. Spectral ghosts and demons can be seen fluttering around the ruins of past temples. The whole region is barren with the presence of the undead and haunting screeches can be heard echoing from the farthest cave. There seems to be no hope in such a hopeless land, however, there is one presence that keeps the land in check. He is the eliminator and purifier of demons and undead, but he is among the dead himself. Being deceased he is ke...

Pikmin 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

They are multicolored beings with the power to do anything they set their mind to. Though small and vulnerable alone, in groups they can overtake even the mightiest of creatures. They obey orders from their respective captains and will work tirelessly to get the job done, even if it means sacrificing themselves. From collecting treasures and digging their way through the deepest caves, to fighting enemies ten times as great, they are always working. This work comes through their dedication to Ca...

Metroid Prime (GameCube)

Metroid Prime review (GCN)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

What is the first thing that usually comes to mind when one thinks of bright or luminous. There are many things that would come to my mind: the Sun, the stars, a lamp, or maybe even my TV that goes on the fritz every couple of hours. However, there was one game that brought illuminating to a whole new level and that game is Metroid Prime. The "2002 Game of the Year" certainly deserved its title in my eyes when I got the chance to play it a while back. I was always familiar with the Metro...

Galaga (NES)

Galaga review (NES)

Reviewed on October 05, 2004

The biggest commodity of games in arcades has been then and still is shooters. From their wonderfully quaint and simple graphical nature to the pleasant concept of trying to get the best score, shooters have always been there to challenge us. Now how many of us today have heard of Galaga? Well, if you have been around for a while, you would know that it goes back a long way, especially in the arcades. Ah, the memories, I remember spending quarter after quarter, hoping to finally beat my f...

Run Saber (SNES)

Run Saber review (SNES)

Reviewed on October 01, 2004

At first glance, Atlus Super Nintendo platformer Run Saber has just about everything Iíve ever wanted in a game of its ilk. You have tons of bosses, beautiful graphics and some fun levels that combine beating on subordinate enemies with skillfully maneuvering past indestructible obstacles. Unfortunately for me, it lacks two crucial elements that really would tie those positives together ó length and challenge.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 30, 2004

Konamiís Turtles in Time was a pleasant surprise for the owners of the SNES Christmas of 1992. Based on the then outrageously popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles license, it was the SNESís second most visually pleasing game as of 1992, next to Final Fight.

Exed Exes review (NES)

Reviewed on September 30, 2004

Back in 1985, Capcom released Xevious-inspired shooter Exed Exes in the arcades. Iíve never played it, but from the pictures Iíve seen, I can guess that at least a tiny amount of effort was put into that product, as it looks reasonably decent for that era.

Amazing Island (GameCube)

Amazing Island review (GCN)

Reviewed on September 29, 2004

Entitling a game Amazing Island is not a matter to be taken lightly. Although most of us have a concrete notion of what an "island" is, definitions of "amazing" vary from person to person. What is amazing to you may be horribly mundane to me, and vice versa. Of course, you can't please everyone all the time, so it's inevitable that Amazing Island will disappoint many people by default by providing action that clearly does not pass the standards of amazement that many people have cemented ...

Tetris Worlds (Xbox)

Tetris Worlds review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 27, 2004

For the last fifteen teen years, Alexey Pajitnov's classic puzzle game has seen countless remakes and copycats. Most of these renditions fail to even breathe new life into the simple game of tetris and Tetris Worlds is no different. Armed with a little flash and some techno beats, Tetris Worlds attempts to turn tetris's casual gameplay into a long lasting adventure by telling the story of the Minos.

Pachinko Sexy Reaction (Arcade)

Pachinko Sexy Reaction review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 27, 2004

Are Japanese games of chance and peeks into the dressing rooms of changing women your two greatest passions? Then it just so happens that Pachinko Sexy Reaction is an arcade game that you should invest some time in. It's about as deep as a child's wading pool, and stays in that shallow territory for the entirety of the experience. If you like cheap little table games like pachinko and pinball, here you go. If you like buxom animť women who like to conveniently "forget" that they're not un...

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 27, 2004

What comes to mind when someone says "RPG"? Some may think of the good ol' days playing D&D, while others see colorful Final Fantasy worlds with chocobos, airships and enormous weapons. Still, the picture is generally the same: swords, magic and random battles are almost always an integral part of the role-playing genre, right?

DoDonPachi (Arcade)

DoDonPachi review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 26, 2004

Do Don Pachi is packed with ecstasy, not the brain rotting drug but the mixed feelings of apprehension, excitement and anger. The three combined create an unknown emotion that seems to be locked inside the human system, until one plays Do Don Pachi. Once you have experienced the ride that is Do Don Pachi you will never forget it, the firing of the ships cannon, the array of tanks and planes as they surround the one solitary ship floating over the wrecked world. There is no going back, itís ...

When you say hockey you think of a few things. Fighting, toothless Canadians, and organ music playing the chicken dance are the first things that come to mind. When talking about hockey in terms of video games only one thing comes to mind, Sega Sports.
