Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors (Xbox)

Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

If there's one thing that the average Japanese person fears more than the strange faced foreigners they sometimes see wandering their streets, it would have to be their demons. These faces of evil are so deeply entwined in local mythology and superstition that there would seem to be a demon for every occasion. From the mountain dwelling Tengu that torments lost travelers, to the Kappa water demons that drown hapless swimmers, there's a single universal constant that binds... a total and utter ha...

Spider-Man 2 (Xbox)

Spider-Man 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

There was a time when the summer movie season was all about the cinema experience. Sight, sound, and spectacle were the keywords to judge by as some of our biggest childhood fantasies were brought to life on the big screen. Inevitably however the movie would end and we would return to our dreary lives with a yearning for more of the good stuff that, oh so briefly, sated our lust for adventure. And while in the past we may have turned to our video games in order to keep that spirit alive, these l...

JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future (Xbox)

JSRF: Jet Set Radio Future review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Originally debuting on Sega's now defunct Dreamcast platform, Smilebit's Jet Set Radio brought urban street culture into the home for those of us too lazy to get off of our sofas and find it ourselves. It's controversial anti-establishment message worked so perfectly with the graffiti-spraying-grind-fest style gameplay that Jet Set Radio quickly became the talk of the town. Gamers applauded JSR's original approach to roller blading action, while politicians lamented it for it's morally lax value...

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Of all the great comic book characters created during the 1970's, perhaps 2000ad's Judge Dredd is the least recognizable to mainstream America. The comic's hard edged sci-fi setting mixed with liberal doses of black comedy and social commentary make it more than suitable for American tastes. But still for reasons unknown it has continued to languish in relative obscurity. So why has this erroneous situation occurred? Some may choose to blame the woeful 1995 Sylvester Stallone movie for driving (...

Katamari Damacy (PlayStation 2)

Katamari Damacy review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Katamari Damashii is a typically Japanese game. And by that I don't mean to infer that it features school girls. Actually for that matter there is also absolutely zero tentacle content and the mandatory giant robot action is mysteriously absent. There are no hard working maids, no panty flashes, no sailor suited defenders of the universe, nada. Heck, there isn't even a single fireball, be it a sho-ryu-ken or otherwise! That Katamari Damashii has forgone these tried and true staples of Japanese p...

Pocket Fighter (PlayStation)

Pocket Fighter review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

There has never been nor will there ever be again another fighting game quite like this. For you see, Pocket Fighter is unique. Pocket Fighter is special. Pocket Fighter is whacked out Japanese lunacy pumped up on 'shrooms and put through a fanboy themed blender. It's everything that a true Capcom fanatic could ever want in a fighter, and nothing anyone else would even come close to understanding. At first glance, you may think that you get it. It's a 2d one on one fighter isn't it? As close as ...

Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

In a world where the majority of anime licenses produce software specially breed for the bargain bins, the Naruto name would appear to be something of an enigma. As if born under a lucky star, it has spawned a veritable cross-platform franchise of praise worthy games where so many other licenses have simply crashed and burned. From Bandai's outstanding Playstation2 entry to Tomy's range of Nintendo exclusives, the formula for success has always been universal. In fusing the innovative 3d fightin...

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind review (PC)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

Not often does a game come along that simply knocks you off your feet. A game so massive and involved that it hooks you from the word go. A game that you can't get enough of, one that makes you sit back and just go 'whoa'.

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

The ocean looks calm, as the tide moves inward. Suddenly, the tranquil beach scene transforms into a flower field, as a lonely girl in a blue cape walks across. She holds a golden feather in her hand, which floats up into the sky. Then, a brown-haired young man in a black jacket grips his gunblade by the hilt. Enter Squall Leonhart, a lone wolf at a military school known as ''Garden''. He goes through life routinely, ignoring almost everyone and having numerous struggles with his rival Seifer Al...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 27, 2004

The Legend of Zelda. You've all heard of it, and most of you love it. It's the tale of a boy who, against all odds, fights courageously against the forces of evil to rescue the princess and recover the Triforce. Every Zelda game seems like a masterpiece, from the very first NES game to the stunning A Link to the Past to the legendary Ocarina of Time. But Nintendo, the geniuses behind these games, have been through hell and high water just because the next Zelda game would be...

Pokemon Red (Game Boy)

Pokemon Red review (GB)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

This game needs no introduction. It started as a little Japanese game, and then became a worldwide phenomenon. Eventually, the games became so popular that even the figurative “guy on the bus” knew the difference between Pikachu and Blastoise. Hell, even the Pope took notice! Unfortunately, the original Red and Blue games have shown their age with the news of GBA remakes, but they still have their joy and nostalgia. Maybe it’s because it’s an innovative RPG with animal catching built in, or beca...

Breakdown (Xbox)

Breakdown review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

The problem with modern gaming is that for most of the time, developers aren't given the opportunity to innovate. Once the life blood of the industry, innovation has since gone the way of dodo with many new releases now consisting of sequels, remakes, licenses or remade licensed sequels. The risks are always great, but when something new comes along that breaks from the mold and dares to be different, the rewards can be immense. Of course, the exact opposite can be said to be true as was evidenc...

Silent Hill 3 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

If there is one thing that survival horror games have in common with the popular movies that inspired them, it would to be their affinity for sequels. No good horror franchise is complete without a handful of rushed, cash-in-quick style follow ups that milk the product for all it's worth. It's a fact that most sequels to popular horror movies are terrible, but it would seem that the reverse is true for their interactive counterparts. Where one becomes tired and stale, the other grows and evolves...

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

Tom Clancy certainly had his numbers right when he penned the original novel, Rainbow Six, back in 1998. Though the concept may have seemed far fetched at the time, the book accurately predicted a rise in global terrorism sometime during the first few years of the new millennium. Well what do you know? He was bang on the money... quite literally in fact! Sadly enough as recent history has taught us, if you're going to fight terrorism then you're also going to need to rewrite the old rules of eng...

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

Over the past few years, UBI Soft Montreal have been cultivating themselves something of a reputation. With award winning franchises such as Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six already behind them, their resume has slowly started to read more like a greatest hits of 3d action gaming than a brief summery of previous job qualifications. As such, it was in their careful and trustworthy hands that Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner, sought to secure the future of one of gaming's most beloved heroes. ...

Galaga (Arcade)

Galaga review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 23, 2004

I’ve always had a love for shooters, and thus, the arcade era of video gaming is what I consider to be the best times of my life in terms of gaming. A shooter, no matter how shallow it may be in depth, sometimes have the effect of that long-term addiction that refuses to let you put down your controller or stop putting in quarters. Unfortunately, I was one of those affected by that lust, so you can take a guess at where a good amount of my allowance went.

Aliens, we just can't seem to live with them and we sure as hell can't live without them. Though in the past they've used us as incubators for their young, processed our children into hamburger mince and hunted the remnants of humanity to the brink of extinction, we still find ourselves fascinated by the unknown mysteries that these galactic beings represent. Are we suckers for punishment or is our continued persecution justified? Who knows... but whatever the reason may be, their next visit to ...

Pure and utter madness, there's no other way to describe it! You see, there's this wire framed rabbit named Vibri who's currently bouncing all over a picture of my wife. And if that wasn't bad enough, it's also trying to extract a Shitake mushroom from my darling's nose...

Though it may not happen very often, there are times when I am thankful to be living in Japan. While the locals may put asparagus on their pizza and sell used panties in their vending machines, there is one characteristic of the Japanese that my Gaijin brain can actually comprehend... their continued fascination with the old school shooter. Be it of the vertical or horizontal scrolling variety, this classic genre is thankfully still alive and taking quarters in the land of the Rising Sun. And th...
