Amplitude (PlayStation 2)

Amplitude review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Saying that the rhythm genre has been barren is an understatement. It is already fall 2005 and nothing has grown from that musical tree. Just like leaves, the industry has left the genre to wither, gently plummet to the ground, dry in the heat of the sun, and deteriorate into indistinguishable grains of mulch. I pine for the days of genuine button-mashing dexterity and wind-in-my-eye concentration as I remember a game still golden after two long, agonizing years… Amplitude.

Haunting Ground (PlayStation 2)

Haunting Ground review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Your vision slowly creeps in on itself, black murk seeping in and covering your gaze. A vision that rattles every few seconds from your heart pounding behind your eyes. Everything is blurry. Your palms are drenched, and each sound that echoes in your eardrums resemble footsteps coming towards you. Your focus flicks back and forth, because every time you look one place, you swear you see something in another. You’re in a state of panic, defined by the dictionary as: A sudden, overpowering terror,...

Super Mario 64 DS (DS)

Super Mario 64 DS review (DS)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Eight years ago, the game that gave new meaning to the term "3D Game" and redefined the platform genre, Super Mario 64, was released to the world on the Nintendo 64. The game was well-received, and as most will tell you, it was extremely fun. However, one of the most complained about issues, was the lack of Mario's green-hatted brother, Luigi. It does seem rather ironic, that on the DS reincarnation of the game, amongst many new additions and features, is the ability to control Luigi. And indeed...

God of War (PlayStation 2)

God of War review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

Now if you watch TV, read magazines, or visit any game related site, you must have heard of God of War; A game that came out of no where, and gained prestige, like a snowball rolling down a hill. It was advertised to deliver an insanely violent, and overtly sexual experience, with deep and fluid gameplay. God of War, is a rare game that not only lives up to the hype it receives, but completely shatters all expectations for it by delivering one of the best experiences in gaming, in the last three...

Sudeki (Xbox)

Sudeki review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

It's rare, that you find a good role playing game without the word "SquareEnix" written somewhere on the box. Sudeki is one of these. It doesn't take the role of a traditional RPG, but an Action RPG, however. It is the first role playing game to hit shelves, for the XBox game console that's actually worth looking, in my opinion. And by this, I mean to actually play, because although Climax has obviously thrown scantily clad girls, with large cleavage in, to attract certain male gamers, there is ...

Madden NFL 06 (Xbox)

Madden NFL 06 review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 13, 2005

In 2004, EA's bold disregard towards its biggest competitor, ESPN 2K5, made many wonder why the most dominant franchise in video games would act so ridiculous in the face of competition. Even after making incredulous claims, EA went out and bought the rights to the NFL, effectively erasing any chance another company would take a shot at Madden's throne for quite a while. With all eyes watching this year's rendition, Madden attempts to reassure its long time fans, and at the same time innovate...

Nanobreaker (PlayStation 2)

Nanobreaker review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 12, 2005

If you could take a sci-fi story line, a cyborg he-man character, and throw in some Castlevania 3-D fighting style in it, what would the baby come out like?.....pretty ugly. I think that is the only description that you could give Konami's Nano Breaker. Anybody who enjoyed Lament of Innocence would expect to be in for a treat, but ladies and gentlemen Igarashi left you at the end of a cliff ready to fall off. I think you would be better off falling off the cliff, then having to play this game fo...

Mega Man 6 (NES)

Mega Man 6 review (NES)

Reviewed on September 12, 2005

It's no secret that no one really likes Mega Man 6 as much as I do. One look at any review of it would be proof of that. I think the reason for this is simply that the over saturation of the Mega Man series toyed with people's emotions, because there is no way this is a bad game. Sure, it may just be more of the same stuff that the previous five games in the series provided, but if you take a minute and stop to think about it, you will realize that Capcom actually added a lot of new stuff that p...

Predator (NES)

Predator review (NES)

Reviewed on September 12, 2005

Predator is one of my all time favorite movies. Featuring a group of tough army soldiers sent to a Central American jungle to kill Colombian drug smugglers and who then proceed to run into a huge problem not of this earth, it was an incredibly fun and action-packed movie. It also featured one of my favorite enemies ever, The Predator, who was just too bad ass for words to describe. When I heard there was a NES game for it recently, I was estatic. Finally, I could get a chance to play one of my a...

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 12, 2005

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is about a princess named Eirika who must save her continent from the Grado Empire, which has recently started up an odd policy of kicking all their neighboring countries’ asses for no good reason. Through her quest, she must reunite with her missing twin brother, unravel the Grado Empire’s darker plot, and stop an age-old evil from resurfacing and covering the world in eternal darkness. Starting with only her rapier, her wits, her trusted companion, Seth, and her ...

Seven Samurai 20XX (PlayStation 2)

Seven Samurai 20XX review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 12, 2005

I have this tendency to get a little obsessive over theatre; I don’t just watch a movie, I watch a movie. I note the little details, the subtle nuances of each character, try to guess what gets their motor motivated. I picture the setting and imagine what it would be like to live there, factor in things the movie barely even implies. I’ll view a fight scene in slow motion, homing in on every movement, looking for authenticity, marking impacts, counting the blows dealt. I like to look at t...

Tekken 5 (PlayStation 2)

Tekken 5 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 11, 2005

Namco finally gets its act together in Tekken 5. Taking a back-to-basics approach, Namco has returned to the combat fundamentals of Tekken 3 in response to the mixed reactions towards Tekken 4. Experimenting with position changes, a narrative dialogue, and walled environments, Tekken 4 felt out of character. To offer some leniency, its failures were a necessary sidestep toward the development of Tekken 5, which rightfully removes the position changes, incorporates narrative dialogue, and deempha...

SSX 3 (PlayStation 2)

SSX 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 11, 2005

SSX 3 continues EA Sport's success with numerous improvements, increased customization, and an extensive and unified environment. Instead of a World Circuit where events are held at separate venues, SSX 3 takes place on a single mountain with three peaks of varying difficulty. Combine this with the funky fresh style distinctive of the SSX series and you have this third installment's underlying concept. Nevertheless, many of its new features are questionable and the quality and quantity of the up...

Suikoden IV (PlayStation 2)

Suikoden IV review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 10, 2005

Following an unfortunate trend, Konami's fourth installment concentrates on improving its graphics and incorporating vocal dialogue in order to compete with the current trends in the RPG genre while not giving enough attention to gameplay. Somehow, something went horribly awry during the transition between Suikoden III and Suikoden IV. No one can explain why most of the game's problems could have been easily fixed simply by glancing at Suikoden III. Though maintaining Suikoden's standard for cre...

Nintendogs: Chihuahua & Friends review (DS)

Reviewed on September 09, 2005

At first glance, Nintendogs looks to be a joke, a seemingly ridiculous game worthy of scorn. Upon experiencing its contents, however, people will be shocked, faces will turn, and a perpetual flow of comments about it being cute will overwhelm. Not to be mistaken for a traditional game, Nintendogs is like no other, a shining example of how Nintendo’s longing for innovation has truly paid off. Being in the form of a dog sim, this innovative title allows caring, petting, walking and playing with...

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War (PlayStation 2)

Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 09, 2005

Fifteen years ago, there was a war. Left with no other alternative, the Belkans detonated seven nuclear weapons on their own soil to halt the advances of the enemy. A world horrified by this turn of events sheathed its weapons, and uneasy peace settled over the land. However, as of late the neighboring country of Yuktobania has been taking an unusually hostile interest in your country of Osea, and the fires of war are beginning to flame up once again.

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun review (PS2)

My best friend once told me the appeal of the Medal of Honor games was founded in their near-flawless ability to make the player feel they were part of a greater generation of humanity — people whose heroism and valor shaped the world we live in today.

Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 07, 2005

Start with a free-roaming world like Grand Theft Auto 3. Add in all the greatness of the Streets of Rage and the Golden Axes and the Maximum Carnages. Mix the blazing gameplay that Capcom’s known for, the kind of intensity that’s introduced countless gamers to carpal-tunnel syndrome.

Metal Slug 4 & 5 (Xbox)

Metal Slug 4 & 5 review (XBX)

Reviewed on September 05, 2005

Metal Slug 4 is HARD, therefore it deserves an introduction. For the last couple of years, I've heard a lot of negative things about this game, like how totally different it is from previous Slugs, or that it's too easy. Now that I've finally had the chance to play the title in this double pack, I'm stumped. It's not the plague that almost everyone seems to claim it is, and for the most part, it's basically on par with its predecessors.
