Kouryu Densetsu Villgust: Kieta Shoujo (SNES)

Kouryu Densetsu Villgust: Kieta Shoujo review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 27, 2004

One of the greatest joys of playing a role-playing game comes from watching characters that start out as weak as a newborn child evolve into a force powerful enough to topple evil beings possessing godlike might.

Pokemon Colosseum (GameCube)

Pokemon Colosseum review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 26, 2004

It almost seems pointless even writing this review. Because, what we are dealing with is unquestionably the biggest franchise in videogames history. A franchise that has polarised the audience like none other before it. It can be said of many games that you either love it or hate it. But, the levels of devotion and detestation that this game provokes simply do not exist anywhere else in gaming. Some clamour for every latest release, determined to ''catch them all'', fully utilising the most fund...

Hercules no Eikou II: Titan no Metsubou review (NES)

Reviewed on May 26, 2004

One thing that has remained a constant in video gaming history is that if a company comes up with a wonderful idea, other companies will jump on board and attempt to create their own games using said idea.

Shadowgate 64: Trials of the Four Towers (Nintendo 64)

Shadowgate 64: Trials of the Four Towers review (N64)

Reviewed on May 24, 2004

Having solved numerous other adventure games since finding Shadowgate many years ago when I was but a boy, I still always seem to find myself coming back to it. It's truly a great experience -- brooding, challenging, discreetly humorous and devoid of filler. No other game has matched up to it in my mind, and I can't conceivably imagine one being able to. Besides, the genre has been dead since the early 90's.

Donkey Kong Country (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 24, 2004

I've never been the number one fan of the SNES and in comparison with its Sega counterpart I find it quite inferior when it comes to the actual quality of the games themselves. Don't get me wrong though, the SNES sure did have a few shiners but it lacked enough of them to be honest. That's just my opinion and I hope I don't get a pile of e-mails from Nintendo butt bangers but it is the sad sad truth.

Arc the Lad: Twilight of Spirits (PlayStation 2)

Arc the Lad: Twilight of Spirits review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 24, 2004

A goal almost universally sought after in this day and age is a sense of self. From people, to bands, to companies, identity is a pinnacle that most everyone wants but few realize. Even video games fall into the pool of this unspoken desire, often trying to mark their piece of the gamers' terrain with anything from honed physics to inventive and revolutionary mechanics. Some games even identify themselves with diversity, masterfully easing a passenger through high speed chases, tense shooting...

Cobra Mission (PC)

Cobra Mission review (PC)

Reviewed on May 23, 2004

Face it, your first intimate encounter can be a mortifying experience. Where do you put those clumsy hands of yours? And, oh my gosh, what are you doing with your mouth?!? Don’t let your inept fumbling plunge you into the depths of humiliation and shoot you self-confidence to hell. Avoid this lifelong trauma; simply play Cobra Mission: Panic in Cobra City. Not only is this game a moderately complex RPG-style detective story. Not only is it an over-the-top comedy that borders on the farc...

Pretty Girl Makiro (PC)

Pretty Girl Makiro review (PC)

Reviewed on May 23, 2004

Pretty Girl offers a different perspective than most other adult bishoujo games. Disposing of the idea of a male lead character surrounded by a bevy of beautiful girls, the developers of this game made the main character a female... and surrounded her with a bevy of beautiful girls. Yes, Pretty Girl provides the player with a large helping of girl-on-girl action. Unfortunately, that's the only attraction of the game. The thin script barely provides a story, much less any charac...

Chase H.Q. Secret Police (Game Boy Color)

Chase H.Q. Secret Police review (GBC)

Reviewed on May 23, 2004

Chase H.Q. must have made quite an impact in the arcade. Released in the late 80’s, the game was soon ported to most every console and handheld system in existence at the time. Most of these ports did their best to emulate the original’s style, providing a fast-paced environment where success depends solely on quick reflexes. When it came time to release a version for the Game Boy Color, though, the developers decided to make some adjustments. Drifting away from its driving roots, C...

Chase HQ (Game Boy)

Chase HQ review (GB)

Reviewed on May 23, 2004

Before I became a licensed driver, many of my weekend nights were spent roaming the darkened aisles of the local arcade. On occasions when I had some extra money, a couple of my tokens would invariably end up in the belly of Chase H.Q. Perhaps I was drawn to the game by a keen sense of justice, a need to track down the bad guys and put them in their place. Maybe I enjoyed the adrenaline rush created by racing against the clock, weaving my shiny red car through traffic, doing anything to...

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (NES)

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse review (NES)

Reviewed on May 21, 2004

I really liked the first Castlevania. I figured even with the lack of a password feature and the clunky game mechanics that it was cool to finally see such an atmospheric game integrate classic monsters and gothic myths into it seamlessly. I couldn't wait to see which baddie I'd be facing around the next corner -- would it be the Grim Reaper, or maybe Frankenstein's Monster? There was even an aura of spookiness about the whole game that I wouldn't have thought possible with so many advers...

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns (Atari 2600)

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns review (A2600)

Reviewed on May 20, 2004

Spend enough time reading the legends and myths of ancient Greece and you might come upon the jolly tale of a man named Sisyphus. This poor chap did something or other to royally tick off the gods and was sentenced to an eternity of suffering in Hades. To be more specific, Sisyphus was forced to roll a large rock up a steep hill. However, when he got said rock to the top, it would simply roll back down the other side, forcing him to start over.

Paradise Heights 2 (PC)

Paradise Heights 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on May 16, 2004

Is it possible Paradise Heights achieved enough popularity to warrant a sequel? Could that game, so devoid of memorable or exciting characters and storyline, have succeeded based solely on its lascivious adult content? Hard to imagine, yet Paradise Heights 2 exists nonetheless. Credit should go to the developers of this follow-up. Rather than simply churning out a game of equal quality to the original, the team clearly worked to improve every aspect in the sequel, if only slightly....

Paradise Heights (PC)

Paradise Heights review (PC)

Reviewed on May 16, 2004

Based on arguably specious reasoning, I've concluded that the producers of Paradise Heights passionately hated making this game. For Exhibit A, I present two quotes from the main character, lifted from the opening introduction where he reflects on his time spent as a computer game programmer.

Clockwerx review (PC)

Sammy spins left, Sammy spins right. Sammy sees the green rod coming! Sammy tries to duck and weave and avoid a collision, but the green rod is too clever for Sammy. The two collide in a fiery explosion that totally decimates poor Sammy.

Super C (NES)

Super C review (NES)

Reviewed on May 14, 2004

The Nicaraguan Contras were among the most brutal terrorists the United States has ever funded, visiting heinous carnage on helpless civilians in their crusade against the leftist Sandinista government. But don’t make the mistake of associating “contra” with terrorism -- all the word refers to is opposition. So it’s unsurprising Konami chose the word for their Contra series -- games famed from the first moment for outrageous difficulty, for endless waves of powerful enemies, for tough bos...

Super C review (NES)

Reviewed on May 14, 2004

In an age when gaming is grappling against its own impending emasculation, the few, stoic Splinter Cells and Dead to Rightses will only stand for so long. For these brave soldiers of a hopeless war will only be able to support this faltering fortress until their backs have broken. And when the flamboyant Final Fantasies and eccentric Pokemons have finally stolen the breath of these last survivors, the men of our hobby will look back to a better time.

Mega Man 5 (NES)

Mega Man 5 review (NES)

Reviewed on May 14, 2004

After you’ve played a certain number of the classic Mega Man games, they can become very difficult to rate. On a positive note, when you put a Mega Man game into your Nintendo, you know you’re going to be playing an excellent cartoonish platformer with tight play control, the ability to steal weapons from bosses and a fateful encounter with the overlord of all evil senior citizens — Dr. Wily.
