Darkstalkers (PlayStation)

Darkstalkers review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Though being highly aware of them all, I'm amazed to say I'd never actually played one of Capcom's cartoon beat-em-ups prior to this one, either at the arcade or on a console. When I saw this game going cheap second-hand, and that it had a mob of supernatural/mythical creatures (vampire, catwoman, a Frankenstein type, werewolf, succubus) scrapping in colourful 2D Street Fighter style, I thought it looked pretty cool and it was time to have a go.

Danger Girl (PlayStation)

Danger Girl review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

When Danger Girl sashayed past me offering not one but three hyper-gynoidal heroines to play, and hot lashings of stealthy action-adventure, I groaned and almost fell over at the prospect.

D review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

One night in a downtown LA hospital under the gaze of a full moon, Doctor Richter Harris apparently goes insane and, without warning, carries out a mass murder of staff and patients.

Bust A Groove (PlayStation)

Bust A Groove review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

After an ongoing farce in which I kept trying to buy 'Bust a MOVE' second-hand, and kept failing miserably (right disc, wrong cover... right cover, wrong disc... you name it, it happened), I unexpectedly found myself the confused owner of the famous but untried-by-me Bust A GROOVE. And before I knew it, I was

Bushido Blade (PlayStation)

Bushido Blade review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Bushido Blade (BB) is Squaresoft's infamous samurai swordfighting game of one-hit kills. There are no health gauges, combo counters or special powers here. BB follows the impulse of realism: One properly executed stab to the head or torso will end life immediately. Blows to limbs maim those limbs, legs can be rendered useless so that your opponent is reduced to crawling or just lying on the ground, and the whole thing is confidently presented in status-free glory. There's no text, no mess...

Akuji the Heartless (PlayStation)

Akuji the Heartless review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

If you were about to be married but suddenly had your heart ripped out in a voodoo ambush by your treacherous brother, who then proceeded to toss your soul into Hades, you'd be more than a little pissed off too. This happened to Akuji the Heartless, and provides the background story for the game. As Akuji, it's your goal to hack your way out of hell, achieving some weird kind of redemption en route, and to take revenge upon the people who cast you down. (See, they don't just call him 'the heartl...

40 Winks (PlayStation)

40 Winks review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

40 Winks aims its cute and dreamy self directly at one of the toughest arenas of gaming to crack - the nebulous zone in which young children and almost-teens swim together. Perhaps at the same time it hopes (in vain?) that the Mario-like powers of 'universal appeal' will embrace and hold onto the rest of the audience. The game is a wonder-filled 3D fantasy platformer in which a doe-eyed young sister and brother pair named Ruff and Tumble enter the worlds of their dreams to rescue the rema...

Taz in Escape from Mars (Genesis)

Taz in Escape from Mars review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Out of all the classic cartoon characters, The Tasmanian Devil is arguably one of the more forgettable. The fact that you could never understand what the lil' bugger was saying meant that he didn't convey quite as much character as old favourites like Bugs or Daffy. That isn't to say that people haven't heard of, or wouldn't recognise, Taz, just that as a cartoon character, he's slightly more pants than many others. Still, as I'm sure most games developers have written on their wall as a mantra ...

Cosmic Spacehead (Genesis)

Cosmic Spacehead review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Cosmic Spacehead... with a name like that the hero of this game from Codemasters was born to be an intergalactic explorer. So it's no surprise to see that that's exactly what he's up to here, although what is reasonably surprising is the manner in which he's going about it. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you an example of that rare breed.... the console point 'n' click game.

Looney Tunes: Twouble! (Game Boy Color)

Looney Tunes: Twouble! review (GBC)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

It's always nice when game developers try to do something just that little bit different with a licensed game. It shows that a bit of effort has been put into things, which is nice. The temptation to stick cartoon characters into simple platformers is obviously great, looking at the sheer quantity of such games to have popped their head round the gaming door in the last ten years. So it's always nice when game developers try to do something just that little bit different with a licensed game. Sh...

Go! Go! Beckham! Adventure on Soccer Island (Game Boy Advance)

Go! Go! Beckham! Adventure on Soccer Island review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

OK, a quick lesson for all the less-British people out there. Here in the UK David Beckham is a bit of a legend. He is captain of the England football team, he married a Spice Girl (the ugly one), he gives his children daft names (step forward Brooklyn and Romeo), he lives in a castle, he owns half of Devon, and he breathes fire. I made the last two up, by the way.

Command and Conquer: Renegade (PC)

Command and Conquer: Renegade review (PC)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

The rush you experience from rushing squads of tanks and soldiers into an enemy base is a memorable one- just ask any Command & Conquer fan. Westwood’s renowned real-time strategy franchise has captivated gamers for a long time, even though the game was a little light on the “strategy” side. As other RTS games focused more on micro-management, complex formations and the like, Command & Conquer continued to deliver the fast-paced missions and entertaining cutscenes that made the s...

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Game Boy)

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Everybody loves Zelda. I'm fairly sure that it's a scientific fact or something. From the very first time young Link set out across Hyrule to rescue the titular princess back in the early days of the NES (has it really been that long??) gamers have marvelled over it's fantastic depth and gameplay. So it was no surprise when Zelda: Link's Awakening (the fourth installment in the franchise) arrived on the original Game Boy. What did surprise people was the fact that it was almost universally haile...

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

When the first Super Mario Land appeared alongside Nintendo's Game Boy, it was quite successful, due in large to it being a really rather good platformer. As such, it can't have surprised anyone when Ninty announced a sequel called, in a shock move, Super Mario Land 2. What probably would have surprised all the portable gamers out there - had they known at the time - was that this game is still to this day the last original Mario platform game to come out on a Nintendo handheld system - everythi...

Bubble Ghost (Game Boy)

Bubble Ghost review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

I guess this game is a puzzler, although it really is touch and go in classing it in one genre. For those not 'in the know', Bubble Ghost involves you guiding a ghost around the mansion that he haunts. To pass the time the ghost blows a bubble around, and it is your goal to get the bubble through each room in the mansion unharmed. The ghost can, of course, go through walls etc., and the only way he can interact with his environment is by exhaling. Simple concept, but fiendishly difficult in the ...

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

Plumbing looks like a top career. You can let your weight go as much as you like. You can proudly wear the worst facial fuzz since David Bellamy. You can have dodgy dress sense. And still you not only manage to pull, but you unfailingly land members of the monarchy!!! It's genius I tell you..... Plus, if the Mario games are anything to go by (and I'm sure that they are) the whole 'having to stick your arm down someone else's toilet? Lies. I've never once seen Mazza go near a U-Bend. Hell, he has...

Small Soldiers (Game Boy)

Small Soldiers review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

A few years ago a film called Small Soldiers assaulted the worlds cinemas. Telling the tale of the Gorgonite's struggle against the evil Commando Elite, led by Chip Hazzard (voiced by the brilliant Tommy Lee Jones in the movie), the movie blended live action and computer generated effects. It was a marginal success, so the obligatory spin-off games emerged. However, the film was, in retrospect, pants, and nobody really mentions it any more, so what we are left with here is a film-license game wh...

Radar Mission (Game Boy)

Radar Mission review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

An imposing warship, ready to decimate an unseen enemy. A blood red sky, foggy with the haze of battle. An oh-so-cool logo.... the cover art for Radar Mission was very exciting for an eight year old. And as such, on the magical Christmas morning when I first got my Game Boy, I spurned the lure of Tetris, the super-heroic adventures of The Amazing Spider-Man, or the wonder of Mario in order to spend some time with what promised to be a tale of epic naval conflict, heroism, daring escapades and ex...

R-Type (Game Boy)

R-Type review (GB)

Reviewed on March 07, 2004

There cannot be many systems that haven't hosted an R-Type game at some stage in their lives. The original started life in the arcades many moons ago, and since then we've had conversions, we've had sequels, we've had forays into 3-D (in R-Type Delta), but it always seems to be the original that is the most fondly remembered. Which, in a nice, circular fashion, brings us to R-Type for the Nintendo Game Boy. Bet you didn't see that one coming!!
