Insector X (Genesis)

Insector X review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

I really wanted to love Insector X. In a shooter genre overloaded with military planes and bizarrely-shaped spaceships, this Genesis game looked to be a breath of fresh air. Controlling a robotic insect, you’d get to engage in battle with other flying critters, both large and small. Sure, the differences would likely only be cosmetic, but considering how many shooters I’ve played that seemed to be little more than copies of more established names, even superficial cosmetic changes would be very ...

The Revenge of Shinobi (Genesis)

The Revenge of Shinobi review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

Shinobi was one of the game series that made Sega. Shinobi was originally an arcade game before being ported onto the Sega Master System in the 80's. What followed was a series of games for the Master System and also onto Sega's 16-bit console the Genesis. The Revenge of Shinobi was Mr.Mushashi's first 16-bit adventure and was definitely one of the best games on the system until the Genesis died in 1997. Once, again Sega had showed their skill at making great action games without a loud and colo...

Last Battle (Genesis)

Last Battle review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

Imagine a world plagued by the aftermath of a deadly and destructive war, a post apocalyptic nightmare now ruled by rampaging and looting biker gangs who go from town to town raiding the survivors of much needed food and water and murdering defenceless people just for the fun of it. Also consider the fact of a power hungry king ruling over what is left of the world with an iron fist with a large vicious army ready to obey his every command. Sounds like hell on earth doesn’t it. Well it’s the f...

Altered Beast (Arcade)

Altered Beast review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

As I pick through the mind of retro gamers and those who dig “old school” I have never found a fan of Altered Beast. “Boy! That game stinks!” is usually the response I get and when I defend it I get something like “What the **** are you on?” It seems, now the mist has well cleared and the cobwebs have now settled on this archaic action classic and most people are now ready to forget it, despite Sega’s attempts to re-launch it on more up to date systems.

Mega Man: The Power Battle (Arcade)

Mega Man: The Power Battle review (ARC)

Reviewed on June 24, 2004

Mega Man: The Power Battle was a fighting game in the arcades featuring the Blue Bomber, his friends and the cast of unforgettable “men” from his various other hits on the NES and SNES. It contained a selection of bosses from the series and threw you in numerous confrontations against these with the ability to play as Mega Man, his bro, Protoman and their rival/ally Forte, whom I had never heard of until I played this game as to be honest I ain’t a huge Mega Man fan.

Uniracers (SNES)

Uniracers review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 22, 2004

Picture this in your head, if you can. A Unigod, who rules over the Universe, creating anything he wants. Eventually, he got bored, as I imagine a Unigod would if he could do whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. One day, he meets a beautiful young princess, and tries to think of the weirdest possible thing to create, to not only squash his boredom but to impress her.

AFL Live 2004 (PlayStation 2)

AFL Live 2004 review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 22, 2004

I will admit right off the bat, that I have never been a big fan of sports games. I love watching sports, but playing them never interested me. Nevertheless, I decided to purchase and play AFL Live 2004, because the idea of a new game based on my favourite sport intrigued me. I do own AFL '99 for PC, and thought it was okay, but I wanted to play a newer, console version, in the hopes that it would be executed better.

Kingdom Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 22, 2004

Kingdom Hearts was supposed to be one of those rare perfect games. Square, the undisputed king of RPGs, and Disney, everyone's childhood sweethearts, working together to create a gaming masterpiece that was supposed to appeal to the child in us all. Sadly, it's fallen far short of this hypothetical mark.

Parasite Eve II review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 20, 2004

I still remember the day I heard about this game called Parasite Eve II. A friend of mine was selling it for five bucks, and seeing as I had just purchased a Playstation and had only one game for it, I thought, why not. I think I got a pretty good deal right there, that day.

X-Change (PC)

X-Change review (PC)

Reviewed on June 20, 2004

If in earlier days, or perhaps even now, you were like most young men -- and all you ladies out there, I’m guessing you weren’t -- you probably at some point wished yourself a girl. That’s right -- a frilly dress-wearing, tea party-hosting, Nancy Drew-reading girl. Well I’m here to disillusion you and hopefully break you of those twisted desires, because if X-Change is any indicator -- and knowing the reputed mystical insights possessed by your average Japanese game designer, it probably ...

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC)

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic review (PC)

Reviewed on June 19, 2004

In that familiar galaxy far, far away, some 4000 years before the long-ago events of the two Star Wars film trilogies, the Republic is threatened by a Sith army led by Darth Malak. Its fate lies with the sultry yet sour-mouthed Jedi Bastilla, who possesses a potent ability called Battle Meditation that allowed her to kill Malak’s former master Revan. She’s not doing so well as the game opens, though, as a Sith armada destroys her vessel and forces her to hide out on Taris, a decaying urban world...

Ardy Lightfoot review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 19, 2004

It's not difficult to see why companies often make platformers starring cute mascots. After all, making a lovable talking animal is far more easier than making, say, a lovable angst-filled teenager. Mario, despite being an overweight plumber with approximately zero charisma, is nonetheless one of the most recognizable icons of video gaming. Platformers are also quite easy to develop; they may add new abilities or introduce new elements, but you could still get by perfectly with the run-and-jump ...

Queen of Heart '98 review (PC)

Reviewed on June 18, 2004

Watanabe Seisakujo is an interesting Japanese company. Obviously an impassioned collection of individuals, they seek to pay tribute to games that they admire. Apparently, some of those games are of an adult nature, as the group tends to borrow their favorite female characters to use in their own games… their own fighting games. Watanabe Seisakujo aren’t alone in their desire to see cute girls beat each other senseless, though, as all their creations have achieved at least cult-level recogniti...

Heavy Barrel (NES)

Heavy Barrel review (NES)

Reviewed on June 17, 2004

The overhead run 'n gunner is a genre that never quite came to fruition on the console front. The pioneering Ikari Warriors series, despite having three separate outings, could not overcome the dreadful archetype that defines it. Guerilla War seemed to get everything right, only to turn around and commit an unpardonable sin - players would infinitely re-spawn upon death, so if they wanted a challenge, they would need to imagine their own handicap. Unfortunately, Heavy Barrel...

CIMA: The Enemy review (GBA)

Reviewed on June 17, 2004

He lurks the hallway, with a silent breath that if heard could draw daggers. He has no fear of a dark death, having seen his master brutally murdered by his laughing nemesis, the would-be destroyer of his people. What he waits for, is what will allow him to keep his promise. His honor, his pride, his life, his friends are all at stake.

When Nintendo released Super Mario Brothers, a new age of video gaming began. Players controlled the cheerful plumber as he traveled on land, in caves, underwater and through castles in his quest to rescue a beautiful princess from the foul dragon Bowser — and loved every glorious second of entertainment that game provided.
