Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II (GameCube)

Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Phantasy Star Online has always been a game that you either develop a social-life threatening obsession with, or toss to one side after a couple of hours of play after finding it repetitive and shallow, wondering what all the fuss was about. Coming to this Gamecube update as a veteran of Phantasy Star Online versions 1 and 2 on the Dreamcast, I myself wondered if I would be just as hooked third time around as I was that first time I telepiped down into the sunny forests of Ragol and set about so...

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Brow furrowed in concentration you guide your character through the heavy wooden door and straight into a room heaving with grotesque zombies. They turn towards you as one, arms outstretched and moaning. No problem, you’re armed to the teeth with various guns, blades and magical powers. You go to aim your weapon, but your character does not respond. “Your Controller is not registering. Please check it is connected properly” reads an official notice on screen. In a panic you dive for the Gamecube...

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku (Game Boy Advance)

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Dragon Ball Z (DBZ for short) is a hugely popular cartoon hailing from Japan. It is the second in three series that tell the story of a super being called Goku and his struggles against various earth shattering threats as both he and his family and friends grow up. Although DBZ ended in the early 1990’s it has now became a cult favourite in the USA and then the UK thanks to exposure on satellite and cable TV channels like Cartoon network and CNX. Of course where there’s fans there’s gold and it’...

Pokemon Red (Game Boy)

Pokemon Red review (GB)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Unless you happen to have been clinically dead for the last few years, you can’t fail to have noticed the gaming phenomenon known as pokemon. Even if you have distained all things pocket monster, you have probably, by the process of osmosis acquired more information on this game than you ever needed to know. But for those who don’t know what pokemon is (Ah zombie!! Get away from the PC!), here is a quick history lesson.

Virtua Fighter 3tb (Dreamcast)

Virtua Fighter 3tb review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Ok you've seen the score, you know this is going to be a negative review. Quite frankly I disliked every single aspect of this poor excuse for a fighting game and I'm not going to pull my punches.

Unreal Tournament (Dreamcast)

Unreal Tournament review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Let us not mince words boys and girls, Unreal Tournament on the Dreamcast is one of my all time, number one favourite games of all time. It's great, I love it and haven't got a bad word to say about it. So if you don't want to read anymore of what is going to be a drooling, gooey-eyed, praisefest then stop reading now.

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (Dreamcast)

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

I really don’t know why I bothered with this game. I had steered pretty clear of the Tomb Raider series thus far on the PlayStation. But I was looking in the pre-owned section of my local shop and saw Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation on the Dreamcast available for Ł3 (roughly $5). For that amount of money I thought it might be worth giving a go. I remembered that upon release this game was given high scores in many gaming magazines and lots of people said “Oh you must play it, it’s a real hark b...

The Typing of the Dead review (DC)

This is without doubt the best ridiculous, screwed-up, mentalist hybrid of survival horror and secretarial exam I have ever had the good fortune to play!

OK, cards on the table time. I really enjoyed playing Stupid Invaders. I found it an extremely entertaining game and spent a very pleasant couple of evenings completing it.

SoulCalibur (Dreamcast)

SoulCalibur review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

For me, Soul Calibur is not just a game; it's a work of art. Even today it still looks stunningly beautiful. It's a game of immense depth and playability. The fighting system is easy for newbies to get to grips with but offers limitless potential for prolonged expert play. Along with Tekken 3, Soul Calibur is one of the most amazing fighting games ever created.

Soldier of Fortune (Dreamcast)

Soldier of Fortune review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Now you've probably read the tagline for the review and though maybe ''eugh, that's in rather poor taste.'' But I think that it sums up the nature of the game rather well. Soldier of Fortune is game full of sickening and sadistic violence but treats it in a rather light hearted and cartoony fashion.

Shenmue (Dreamcast)

Shenmue review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Summarizing the appeal of Shenmue and the reason why I love it so much has been one of the hardest things I have ever tried to write. Maybe its because Shenmue is less a game and more of an “experience”. Indeed its lack of many of the traditional elements of gameplay has caused many people to dismiss it as nice to look at but a chore to play. For me this is a valid point, as a game Shenmue offers very little in the way of thrills. But as an experience it is rivalled only by its sequel in providi...

Seaman (Dreamcast)

Seaman review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

You have to love Sega don’t you? They spend ages developing a revolutionary voice recognition system and create a plug-in microphone peripheral to allow you to interact with your console. Lesser developers having done all this would have maybe integrated it into an First Person Shooter to allow you to give commands to a team of combatants. Something violent anyway and definitely something commercial.

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 (Dreamcast)

Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

I am very surprised about the general lack of interest around the Ready 2 Rumble Boxing franchise. I have found both games in the series to be fine examples of beat' em up gaming that avoid the dullness of many boxing games by emphasizing funny characters, outrageous moves and a filling bouts with colour and spectacle guaranteed to raise a smile from even the most serious of gamers.

This is one fine game my friends, a fair apricot amongst prunes..a real breath of fine fresh air. Finally proof if proof be need be that Capcom (bless 'em) still have the magic touch.

OutTrigger: International Counter Terrorism Special Force review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

It is a truth almost universally acknowledged that the US is the finest purveyor of shoot'em ups in the whole world. Doom, Quake, Unreal, Half Life, hell even Wolfenstein 3D are all masterpieces of the genre. Only Goldeneye (produced by UK company RARE) has challenged the US hegemony in this genre and now along comes Out Trigger, a Japanese FPS that is also hoping to be ranked alongside the above greats.

Bangai-O (Dreamcast)

Bangai-O review (DC)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Bangai-O is an insanely fast and frenetic Dreamcast shooter from the offbeat Japanese codeshop ''Treasure''. Released in the UK in the year 2000, like many shooters in this country it sold relatively poorly, even at the insanely cheap price it hit the shelves at. As usual the lure of the glossy driving game or sports sim proved more compelling even to the more discerning Dreamcast gamer community and Bangai-o quickly passed into that elite company of games that few people have played, but those ...

Ah 1985, what a great year. Madonna was ''Getting Into the Groove'', Whitney Houston was ''Saving all her Love'', the threat of imminent nuclear war had us all nailing doors to the wall's at right angles to create fall out shelters and most importantly I briefly acquired a Commodore 64 computer and a stack of games!

Sex Games 2 (Commodore 64)

Sex Games 2 review (C64)

Reviewed on March 08, 2004

Writing a review of one of thse kinds of games is quite a challenge. How can I justify playing something as pathetic and sleazy as Sex Games 2 on the Commodore 64. Well basically it was curiosity. I had heard of sex based games on various systems dating back to suck infamous Atari 2600 titles like “Beat ‘em and Eat ‘em” and “Custers Revenge”. My retro system of choice is the Commodore 64 so it was searching this back catalogue that I found this shoddy piece of software.
