Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (PC)

Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2004

Iíve never played a game like Big Rigs. Itís a racing game, with trucks. You may first think that itís simply an 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker rip-off. If it tries to be, itís not. Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing is honestly one of the worst games in all of history, for a variety of reasons that make themselves clear from the moment the game is started. I thought I knew what I was in for when I started up the game, because Iíd read all the reviews for it beforehand: many c...

Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 17, 2004

It might just be me, but it seems a bit awkward when one starts a review of a video game with some sort of a disclaimer ó but with Champions of Norrath, it seems almost necessary to do so.

Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox)

Halo: Combat Evolved review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 15, 2004

Two dropships swoop in from the sky. Eight soldiers are going to land on a beach, to take it from some aliens. They know they are outnumbered. Yet they look somewhat eager for battle. Are they suicidal? Do they lust for battle so much that they don't care if they die? It's not just that though. A bit of confidence tingles in their eyes. A giant of a man stands up. He is over 7 feet tall, and clad in green armor. Perhaps this man's badassness is the source of their confidence. How could this be t...

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Take Super Mario World. The same level aesthetic, the same goofy tree sprites, the weird ''Mushroom Kingdom'' look of it all. Apply a steamroller over the game at a 45 degree angle and call the result an ''isometric overhead perspective.'' Replace Mario with a squat, short-bus rendition of the fabled ''Link'' character.

Final Fight (SNES)

Final Fight review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Final Fight was originally released with the benefit of being alone in the next generation (of its era, 16 Bit) beat 'em up field. It started to really suck to be Final Fight when Streets of Rage was released; Streets of Rage came along and made Final Fight its female dog. Streets of Rage excels at making a semi-decent game look worse... Simply put, Final Fight is a sissy in the light of a better game.

Earth Defense Force (SNES)

Earth Defense Force review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

If you take a child to an expensive restaurant, he'll stare vacantly at the menu. He'll skip past the forty dollar steaks slathered in twenty dollar mushroom sauce. He wants nothing to do with anything called ''parmigiana'' or ''primavera.'' He'll search the menu with a look of desperation and defeat as he cannot find macaroni and cheese with cut-up hot dogs, a dollar-store bargain meal he loves for lack of exposure to better food.

After Burner III (Sega CD)

After Burner III review (SCD)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Mark my words: no game has been as thoroughly sodomized as Sega's AfterBurner. Think the Game Boy Advance is littered with horrid ports? How about the GBC with its laughable versions of otherwise successful games? You see, you know what you're getting with Nintendo's portables. Their drastically inferior hardware and minute visibility, for instance, will quell any real expectation you may feel grow for a port arriving for the systems. But Sega took it to the next level with AfterBurner.

Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn)

Panzer Dragoon Saga review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Beyond life follows death, but for the most important of all dragon riders, beyond his death is his life, again. Death brings him his destiny, and death raises him from the commoner depths of labor and servitude to the forefront of the struggle between a world and its damnation. Edge, the youth who experiences this soul-altering transformation, dies at the outset of this, the single greatest RPG the world will ever see. He's resurrected and saved from his demise by a dragon, a magnificent beast ...

Three Sisters' Story (PC)

Three Sisters' Story review (PC)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

You click and click and click. At first, the story seems interesting because it feels just around the corner from some hot, lusty naked cartoon action. Oh yeah, you're just a few scrolls of text away from the throbbing thrillhammer, huh... Yeah, just keep reading that insipid story about a family torn apart by corporate greed. The backdrop sets itself fast enough and the pace seems set to race toward wild teen orgies at any moment.

Castlevania (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

The name is worth a lot and you know it because it means something to you. You played it when you still had your youth, when you still loved birthday parties and still thought girls were gross. You loved Castlevania and it is as old as your love for games. Castlevania was ahead of its time; you've watched the world and the world of videogames change, and you've seen that the power of Castlevania seems to transcend these changes.

Zombie Revenge (Dreamcast)

Zombie Revenge review (DC)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

And so march the dead, yearning to be truly asleep, to escape their involuntary, macabre commitment to lifeless motion. They drone around, unsure of their actions or even of their existence. Their mouths hang from a lack of tissue vitality and their persistent lumbering speaks of their uncertainty of their own being. They've not even been granted the decency of death; their ''lives'' are aimless and torturous. They don't even desire life anymore- they just yearn to no longer spend foreseeable et...

Strikers 1945 II (Saturn)

Strikers 1945 II review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

A Psikyo shooter is a pretty recognizable thing. If you've had some history with the company's shmup fare, you could easily have won a ''Name That Developer'' challenge with, say, the Dreamcast's Gunbird II. Similarities amongst their games prevail in every nook and cranny, from their obviously similar 2D coding to their uncannily familiar menu screens. Most of all, though, up until the release of Cannon Spike, the mild redundancy that ran so deeply through Psikyo's games was mostly due to an ea...

T.R.A.G. - Tactical Rescue Assault Group: Mission of Mercy (PlayStation)

T.R.A.G. - Tactical Rescue Assault Group: Mission of Mercy review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

T.R.A.G. wasn't even a great concept to begin with. Its base elements manage to be generic AND completely plagiarized at the same time. It wanted to be just a boring action game; T.R.A.G. feels like it was destined to be completely one dimensional in its craptitude. The developers, in a moment of pure idiotic ingenuity, fiddled with what was already guaranteed to suck; the result is one of the most worthless discs ever put to press.

Spider-Man & Venom: Maximum Carnage review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

Over the years, Acclaim has tortured the world with its arduous library of licensed fodder, ''original'' garbage and malicious mixtures of the two. Acclaim has consistently released turd after turd into the underpants of the videogame world, soiling the seats of gamers and leaving its foul streaks to never be forgotten.

Super Mario World (SNES)

Super Mario World review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 14, 2004

It's something of human nature to form rifts and divisions over situations. When you're older, serious issues like divorce, abortion, religion, etc. cause people to choose a side and defend/attack zealously. When you're younger (or just a geek), less important things occupy your time, so less important things cause you to rally for a side. For modern youth, including my own childhood, this behavior was embodied much in the form of the Sega Vs Nintendo argument.
