Metal Arms: Glitch in the System (Xbox)

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System review (XBX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Metal Arms: Glitch in the System is one of the few games that received very little hype, ever since its release. I am not exactly sure why this was the case, since Metal Arms IS a rather underrated and overall pretty nice game. It doesn't have much publicity, because basically you can only see ads for it on Gamespot, GameFAQs, and IGN, and there are a lot of stores where it can't be found. The game itself is a third-person shooter, involving a small robot named Glitch, which will explain the gam...

Final Fantasy III (SNES)

Final Fantasy III review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

The Final Fantasy series is definitely one of the best series' ever made. From the first FF, Final Fantasy became a legend. It brought FF3 to FF4, which elevated it to greater heights. Then FF5 and FF6 came out. Although it appears like I'm reviewing FF3, I'm really reviewing FF6. Before FF6 was released for the PlayStation, it was FF3 on the Super Nintendo, or FF3j, whatever you choose to call it. Anyway, as it is the sixth FF, it's what I'm reviewing here. Behold, it's the third best game in t...

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Imagine this picture in your head: a creature named Ratchet (he may be a ferret or a cat) meets a robot named Clank, falling out of the sky as Ratchet goes out to repair his ship, who brings terrifying news of an evil mastermind called Chairman Drek, who plans to take away all the resources from all the planets in the galaxy to create his own super planet, and then Ratchet and Clank team up to become the greatest duo ever and eventually defeat Chairman Drek, putting the entire galaxy to piece, b...

Enter the Matrix (PlayStation 2)

Enter the Matrix review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

I believe at least 90% of gamers out there in the world know about how bad movie-based games are. Just take a look at the Harry Potter games for crying out loud, and the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Examples like these tell us about the heinous atrocity that we get from playing such games. And then there was this, Enter the Matrix. The game is based off of The Matrix: Reloaded, in which I think was a pretty awesome movie, even though I've personally never watched the movie myse...

Crash Nitro Kart (PlayStation 2)

Crash Nitro Kart review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

After years of anticipation, a sequel to the original Crash Team Racing for the PlayStation finally appeared and hit all of the next generation consoles, allowing players to control either their favorite orange marsupial Crash, or the dimwitted Dr. Neo Cortex, to stop yet another threat to destroy the world, this one being set by the egotistical Emperor Velo. Gamers are not to be grossly disappointed by the quality of Crash Nitro Kart, as it features quality driving action, fairly good variety i...

Xenogears (PlayStation)

Xenogears review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Xenogears was one of those gems that Squaresoft was going nuts producing, in their golden age of the late 1990s. It is one of the few games in which manages to pull it off -- where the storyline fits into the game perfectly, gives it life, and makes it an experience that you'll want to play through. Without any room for doubt, the first thing that one will notice within the game is the beautiful music -- cheery themes fitting from within the hometown, quiet tunes with emotion thrown into the sad...

The Legend of Dragoon review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

When I looked at this game on some website I thought, ''Wow! What an awesome game this looks like...''. And so with that $25 gift certificate I got from winning Review of the Month, I tried to get it on Amazon, only to find that I couldn't. I couldn't buy it used, I just wasn't allowed to do that. Needless to say, I was slightly disappointed when I found this out. So out of total surprise, my mom bought me this game for only $10! How pleased I was. I then happily inserted Disc 1 into my PlayStat...

Ninja: Shadow of Darkness (PlayStation)

Ninja: Shadow of Darkness review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

I remember several years ago, playing this game on demo and then trying it out. Goodness knows, I was in for one of the hugest challenges that I had ever faced in a video game. Well, all the games that I had played for PlayStation were pretty easy, but this game was just... a huge difficulty. This game was created by Eidos a while back, and they have never been known for making difficult games. Not saying that Ninja: Shadow of Darkness has been 100% shattered by its ridiculous difficulty, becaus...

Crash Bandicoot: Warped (PlayStation)

Crash Bandicoot: Warped review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

From the very start of this classic series, we all knew that it was going to be one that would rule above many others. Crash Bandicoot was released in 1996, and it was a good game. Many fell in love with the orange marsupial, and he became a mascot and the game became a Greatest Hit. A year or two after that, Crash Bandicoot 2 was released, and it was highly superior to its predecessor. It also became a Greatest Hit, but there were a lot of people thinking Crash Bandicoot: Warped would be a bad ...

Final Fantasy (NES)

Final Fantasy review (NES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Final Fantasy. This is the one game that spawned the creation of the Final Fantasy series, one of the most beloved series' of all time. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Final Fantasy very much. Still, there are tons of bad points in this game. Those range from the fact the characters have no real development, the thing about needing so much money to buy things, and the rather weak storyline. There is also a large lack of replay value once you have finished Final Fantasy, but the best thing about th...

TimeSplitters 2 (GameCube)

TimeSplitters 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

It's a long world with many timelines and dates. The first end being way back in the old Texas blues, as gunpowder and revolvers incredibly common. And further into the dateline is a world filled with machinery and radars to track those who dare to pass by. Cameras that see all who try to intrude upon the area, and then as it goes to the end, a large futuristic world - guns like revolvers and pistols are a thing of the past - the world now uses lasers, autorifles, and advanced technology. There ...

Pac-Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

As I sit here right now writing this review I feel myself urging to get to that arcade, where I pop a quarter in and turn on the Pac-Man machine and play that incredibly addictive game where you control a little yellow creature who goes around eating dots around a small maze, or better yet play it online at 2:00, and then quickly realize that the time has flown to 4:00 oh so quickly. The addictive game never escapes my head and when I sit down and play the game, I'm just letting the hours fly ar...

Animorphs: Shattered Reality review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Animorphs is considered by many one of the best book series' ever. The series is comprised of about 52 books in the main series, occasional chronicles of aliens, and a lot of super books, so in all there are about 60 books that the author wrote. That's a lot, so obviously they had to take it further. There were Animorphs posters everywhere, as well as movies and games. Unfortunately, book-based games are never that good...

Water Closet: The Forbidden Chamber review (PC)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

There are times when you hear or read the title of a game, and right then, without question, you know you must buy that game. Sometimes, a name might remind you of an old favorite on a long-obsolete console, recalling the fond days of your youth; for instance, when I heard of Metroid Prime, I thought of the joyous hours I had playing Metroid and Super Metroid so many years ago. Immediately and without reservations, I wanted the new title. Other times, a name may represent a proven series ...

Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)

Metal Gear Solid review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Konami’s Metal Gear series had, frankly, a fairly undistinguished history. Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 developed new genre in which stealth was of overriding importance; there were guards everywhere, and they attacked relentlessly if they spotted you, so the only road to survival was to stay hidden. Yet despite appearing on both the NES and MSX consoles, the games never really took off in the way they deserved. But wait -- like the Final Fantasy series, Metal Gear was ready to make the turn from...

Mike Tyson's Punch-Out! (NES)

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

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

“[He] called me a ‘rapist’ and a ‘recluse.’ I’m not a recluse.” Perhaps these were the words that started it all. When you think of all the people you wouldn’t want to be trapped alone in a room with, Mike Tyson is perhaps among the first to come to mind. After all, he’s only on the Zoloft to keep from killing y’all. Iron Mike is a fearsome giant of a man, with the strength of a bull and the brain of a billygoat. Now usually, when an athlete is licensed to appear in a game, he or she is a...

Battle Chess review (NES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Only in recent years, we have seen a computer, Deep Blue, beat the greatest chess player on the planet in a tournament, proving without doubt that a well-programmed logical machine can match any human intellect, at least in the world of chess. Of course, Battle Chess, being a Nintendo game, does not feature quite the level of sophistication that was built into the Deep Blue supercomputer. Still, it is able to accommodate and utilize all the rules of the game, and for most players will at least b...

Barbie Vacation Adventure review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Despite the commotion from various women’s groups over the years about the Barbie doll promoting an unrealistic standard of beauty for young girls, the long-legged plastic figurine is a powerful brand symbol. That brand has expanded strongly into the world of video games; recent Barbie titles, I am assured, capture successfully the fashion design and glamorous lifestyle roleplay associated with the doll itself. The Genesis game, however, as one of the first Barbie video games, clearly is an earl...
