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 (PlayStation)

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 (Arcade)

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 (PlayStation)

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

Konamiís 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! review (NES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

ď[He] called me a Ďrapistí and a Ďrecluse.í Iím not a recluse.Ē Perhaps these were the words that started it all. When you think of all the people you wouldnít want to be trapped alone in a room with, Mike Tyson is perhaps among the first to come to mind. After all, heís only on the Zoloft to keep from killing yíall. 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 (NES)

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 (Genesis)

Barbie Vacation Adventure review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Despite the commotion from various womenís 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...

UNLIMITED SaGa (PlayStation 2)

UNLIMITED SaGa review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

The localization team for the new Square Enix amalgamation needs to get its act together, quickly, and decide how the name of this game is supposed to look. Itís disconcerting to sit down, ready to write a review, and discover that there is not only no consensus on the quality of the game, but no consensus on how to write the title of the product. Sure, in Japanese itís just a handful of funny symbols, so Square Enixís bigwigs might not have an interest, but the folks on this side of the Pacific...

Final Fantasy X-2 (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X-2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

Oddly enough, Final Fantasyís first testing of the murky sequel waters is a sequel in the deepest sense of the word. Often when we say sequel, we mean it in the way that, for instance, Donkey Kong Country 2 is a sequel to its first part: simply a new story with the same characters and settings. Usually, video game sequels donít follow directly from their predecessor, as producers donít want to alienate potential buyers who havenít tried the first title. But Final Fantasy X-2 is a true seq...

Enter the Matrix review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 24, 2004

You want to be Neo. Letís face it, thatís why millions of people bought this game and tens of millions more flocked to see The Matrix Reloaded the first week it came out. The grace, the power, and the seeming invincibility of Neo and his comrades are attractive; who wouldnít want to be able to run along walls and leap across yawning chasms? Moreover, who could resist doing that while dressed in an outrageous black leather trenchcoat with combat boots? Itís pleasing to imagine that we coul...

Run Like Hell review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 21, 2004

I waited for this game for quite a while. But I absolutely refuse to begin this review in the same manner as every other review Iíve ever read for it. They all go along about the same thing: this game was announced before the PS2 was even announced, was in development for quite some time, blah blah blah. Yeah, it took a while to get here. And the end result wasnít as good as expected. Thatís the way it goes sometimes. So hereís a real introduction: Run Like Hell (RLH) is a third-person pe...

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Pool of Radiance review (NES)

Reviewed on April 21, 2004

As any fan of retro role-playing games can tell you, the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Master System were the originators of the console RPG. Games like Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy on the NES and Phantasy Star on the SMS became inspirations for multitudes of games spanning generations of systems.

The Tick review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 20, 2004

Friends and neighbors, I have just returned from an exhausting sojourn. Not long before I left, my chin was smooth and my face was untarnished by age, but now I return to you with a long, straggling beard and many a wrinkle, wart, and pockmark on a visage once considered worthy of a goddess's kiss. Before my arduous voyage, I enjoyed the meat of the land with great voracity - some would say to disgusting excess. No more is my body a reflection of this enjoyment, though; my journey wore me down t...
