Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! (NES)

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! review (NES)

Reviewed on July 12, 2004

Most gaming protagonists do not need our help, for they have been blessed with the skills, weapons, physique and mentality to win at all costs. They strut about the screen, preening and flexing and sneering dismissively at all who dare inhabit their personal space. Look at these heroes! Solid Snakeís only true obstacles are the hundreds of girls who flock after him, Cloud Strife fears nothing but a bad hair day, and Mario can barely sneeze without knocking a dozen Bowserís into a pool of molten ...

E.V.O.: The Search for Eden (SNES)

E.V.O.: The Search for Eden review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 11, 2004

E.V.O was a bizarre and original SNES game that mixed elements from an RPG with that of action platform game, adding itís own unique elements producing a very original game that was interesting to play through and also providing new features that most gamers hadnít experienced before. The game also had a very strange storyline that absorbed various ideas from the story of Creation and the Charles Darwin theory of evolution. Two theories of life that most people tend to believe in and also disp...

Ghosts 'N Goblins (NES)

Ghosts 'N Goblins review (NES)

Reviewed on July 10, 2004

Itís said that whatever doesnít kill you, makes you stronger. But Ghosts Ďn Goblins undresses that reassuring bromide conclusively: this NES cart can hardly kill you, but is nonetheless thoroughly debilitating.

NHL '98 (PlayStation)

NHL '98 review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

There comes a time in every reviewers life when he has to defy common sense, shut down a large portion of his brain and dive into the neon trash-can that is franchise sports. EA Sports is generally the main offender, churning out the same mindless rubbish year after year, and it just so happens that they are behind the NHL hockey series! NHL í98 was my introduction to the sleazy world of fast-paced action and 12-month updates, and I canít see my intrigue stretching much further after what Iíve w...

God of Thunder (PC)

God of Thunder review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Usually the excitement that surrounds a free game lasts from the time the download starts, to the time the game actually begins. It certainly may be a big buzz to be able to experience a game for the price of nothing, but eventually reality sinks in and you realise that there is a reason why the game is considered valueless. God of Thunder is an exception, split into three parts, and each individual section offering some great gaming, its value as a giver of entertainment far outreaches its non-...

3D Movie Maker review (PC)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

If you're the kind who just loves getting out there and making your own home movies, but find your scope limited by the low-quality of your mummy's camcorder, then Microsoft may just have the right little tool for you! What they've given us access to is 3D Movie Maker, a simple but effective program that can easily convey that maelstrom of ideas floating about in that (beautiful) head of yours. Hosted by a purple, Scottish directorial type named McZee (most likely an off-shoot from the Barney fa...

Super Mario Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Super Mario Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Super Mario Advance, a dual Mario game, has crashed onto the fledgling Game Boy Advance system with a moderate amount of style. This cartridge contains two old ''classics'', Super Mario Bros. 2 and the absolutely ancient Mario Bros. These two games meld together to make a gaming experience that is at times endearing, but ultimately unfulfilling.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Game Boy Advance)

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Yet another eerie hallway looms in front of you. You creep down it - ever so slowly - daring not to make a noise. Hideous gargoyles and grotesque oil paintings line the walls, making you wish you hadnít left your invisibility cloak tucked away in the sock drawer. Itís quiet...too quiet. You canít hear a thing above the frantic racing of your heartbeat, its rhythmic pounding even managing to drown out the chattering of your teeth. You extend a cold, clammy hand and grasp the doorknob in front of ...

Syphon Filter 3 (PlayStation)

Syphon Filter 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Rarely in the history of gaming has there been a more apt name for a particular game's character than Gabriel Logan. The star of the Syphon Filter franchise can indeed flit around any given landscape with the grace and agility of an archangel and, when the time comes, emerge from the wilderness and tear his unsuspecting opponents opponents apart with the ferocity of a wolverine. The first two Syphon Filter outings were major successes due largely to this intuitive combination of espionage and ac...

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

As the sun sets and dusk approaches, the two tribes draw near. They're shouting, brandishing weapons, and waving silk banners of all kinds of colours. As they get closer the din rises, and insults that would strip paint off a wall are hurled backwards and forwards. Blood is going to be spilt.

Mortal Kombat II (Genesis)

Mortal Kombat II review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

I'm not here to lambast Mortal Kombat II for its ridiculous interpretations of the laws of physics. Some might call it nitpicking, if I were to rebuke the game for the way it's characters move as if underwater, throwing themselves around the combat arena with careless abandon, lazily sticking a leg out behind them in a vain attempt to undo their opponents. Surely it would be unjust if I were to classify MKII on the way the shadows of the combatants lift off the ground on occasion, and constantly...

Batman Returns (Genesis)

Batman Returns review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

The Gotham City I know is a source of mystery and wonderment. Itís an eclectic amalgamation of monolithic skyscrapers, scraping the heavens with their neon trappings; and shadowy alleys, where the hefty criminal element lurks. Countless lights punctuate the night sky Ė giving the desolate streets a highly misleading impression of safety - but one punctuates harder than a dozen consecutive exclamation marks. Itís a majestic motif, emblazoning itself powerfully against the stars, calling the cityí...

Conker's Bad Fur Day (Nintendo 64)

Conker's Bad Fur Day review (N64)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

Yes, you can laugh as Conker the Squirrel lurches on-screen and slices the hapless 64 logo in half. You can laugh your silly little brains out for all I care. But should you not also stop and use those shrivelled brains to think for a moment? Yes you jolly well should, ignoramus! That poor logo is just as much a motif Ė a telling symbol of the game to come Ė as it is a comic device, and donít you forget it. Conkerís Bad Fur Day is the Norman Bates of video games. It is a game full of halves and ...

Golden Sun (Game Boy Advance)

Golden Sun review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 09, 2004

On a platform filled to the brink with sixteen-bit rehashes, it is pleasing to know that the Game Boy Advance does actually have some new games. Golden Sun has generated a bucket load of hype due to it being the first RPG to hit the GBA, but sadly, the bucket has a hole in it, as Golden Sun unfortunately falls short of being a classic in a few key areas.

Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II review (GCN)

MMORPG's seem to be on the rise, except on the Gamecube. However, fear not, for there is one game that IS online. Whether or not it is worth your hard earned(or begged)cash, remains to be seen.

Mega Man 2 (NES)

Mega Man 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2004

By far the most popular game in the original Mega Man series, this is probably the most beloved of them all. Many deem it to have the best gameplay, greatest music, etc. I am one of those who disagree with that. Mega Man 2 is probably one of the better games in the series, although it's definitely not the best there is.

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest (SNES)

Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on July 07, 2004

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest can best be described as a slap to the face of any American fan of role-playing games. Commonly referred to as an RPG for beginners, this SNES blunder seems to be less of a tutorial game and more of an insult to a playerís intelligence.

It starts out so innocently. An evil wizard kidnapping a damsel. A brave knight to the rescue, determined to save the day. Leaping onto the sturdy back of his dragon mount, the chivalrous warrior departs to face whatever dangers come his way.
