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 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.

If I must open this review with a positive comment about SNK’s side-scrolling Neo-Geo shooter, Andro Dunos, then let me simply say that the programmers were very good at picking the right games to lift elements from.

Alias (PlayStation 2)

Alias review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 13, 2004

First things first - if you're not already a fan of the show Alias, this game isn't for you. It's designed to appeal to die-hard fans, to be another piece of Alias merchandise in their rapidly-growing collection. First the DVDs of season one and two. Then the official magazine. Now the video game, coming to a console near you!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

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

Reviewed on May 12, 2004

Sometime around June of 99, my life changed. It was then that I became the proud owner of an N64 and, more importantly, a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Now, the series had always been my favorite and all, but I never truly got into it until this came around. It became more than just a game or a time waster - it lead me deep within the world of Hyrule and enveloped me in its rich atmosphere. At the risk of sounding cheesy, it elevated the entire Zelda series to the highest ped...

If 30-foot-tall extraterrestrials with poorly concealed intestinal tracts and fangs as sharp as Lee press-on nails ever decide to take over the Earth, I pray to God we have two souls as brave as Mad Dog and Scorpion (Blue Pants and Red Pants to the layperson) to take them on. Landing by helicopter in the middle of a smoldering city that's been destroyed by either aliens or a day of baking cookies gone horribly awry, Mad Dog and Scorpion require no briefing from the president, who may very well h...

Casino Kid 2 (NES)

Casino Kid 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on May 10, 2004

The lifestyle of a high roller must be a difficult one to maintain, for the past year certainly has been a tough one for the Casino Kid. When we last left him, the Kid had just won over $1,000,000 from the vaunted King of the Casino. Now, no doubt because of his exposure to the temptations of Sin City at such a young age, he’s almost completely squandered his little nest egg. But even though he’s now a pauper, The Kid doesn’t let it get him down. He appears in the title screen flashing a br...

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 09, 2004

Nostalgia has this way of playing tricks on you. Things that you remember as being an official ''good thing'' are not always so when viewed through older (and possibly less easily impressed) eyes. Things that completely blew you away upon first viewing can often seem mundane, and even ugly when revisited 14 years later. Reunions are not always all they are cracked up to be, and you may well find that your one-time best friend is now a shambling mess. In a nutshell, sometimes the past is best lef...

Time Stripper Mako (PC)

Time Stripper Mako review (PC)

Reviewed on May 08, 2004

Foster may have been the greatest bishoujo game developer ever, but the English speaking world would never know it. Only three of their products were ever translated, all a part of Otaku Publishing’s mid-90’s attempt to popularize the genre. Two of these were the first insipid installments of the Paradise Heights trilogy. The other, and best by default, was Time Stripper Mako. To be fair, this title does have some superior features: namely multiple endings and some oddball humor. D...

Whoever said that truth is stranger than fiction may want to step back and re-evaluate that position after taking a look at Kickle Cubicle, one of the most certifiably weird games to squeak by the Pacific shoreline and get into this country. Our hero Kickle is a little white man in black coveralls who can turn his enemies into ice cubes and form great ice pillars from the ground. In case his name yields no clues for you, he can also kick the ice blocks he

Alpha Mission II (NeoGeo)

Alpha Mission II review (NEO)

Reviewed on May 01, 2004

Plagued by atrocious graphics, sluggish gameplay, a poorly-construed power-up system, unimaginative enemies and bosses and countless other flaws, the original Alpha Mission (at least the NES port) set a standard for poor play in a shooter that may never be beat. That dog of a game did for the shooting genre what Hydlide did for the adventure genre.

Psycho Fox (Sega Master System)

Psycho Fox review (SMS)

Reviewed on April 29, 2004

What connotations to you get when you put the words Psycho and Fox together? Possibly your mind will come up with some bizarre images but I bet that you won’t even come close to what the game Psycho Fox is like. When I first head of this game I was in wonder about the nature of the character that I could play. Was he an ordinary fox with simple ambitions or was it something more?

Aliens Vs. Predator 2 (PC)

Aliens Vs. Predator 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on April 27, 2004

“Scary as hell” is a term I rarely, if ever, use to describe a game. So many games that claim to be frightening end up being relatively low on the scares due to poor atmosphere, weak gameplay, or a little of both. I can honestly admit that Aliens vs. Predator 2 had me scared, but only for exactly one/third of the game. You see, this game lets you play as three wildly different races, the standard Marine, the badass Predator, and the freaky-as-hell Alien (dubbed Xenomorph by the in-gam...
