Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure (Genesis)

Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

A dense, imposing jungle.... Dangerous snakes, bugs and other creepy-crawlies at every turn... A former hero trying to recapture some past glory one last time.... Ancient relics of the past all over the place.... No, I'm not talking about alarmingly compelling TV crapfest I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!!, but rather the Mega Drive game Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. A pity in a way, as having Johnny Rotten calling us all by the c-word would definitely have spiced up proceedings somewhat......

James Pond II - Codename: RoboCod (Genesis)

James Pond II - Codename: RoboCod review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

The younger of you may not remember James Pond, but those of you who remember the 16 bit era will no doubt have spent many happy hours glued to your consoles playing Pond's latest adventure. He was a bit of a videogame icon, y' see. Starring in games across the various systems, Pond was an Agent of F.I.5.H, and featured in several platform games, as well as other diversions, such as Aquatic Games - a kind of Track 'n' Water game. Of all his adventures, though, Codename: Robocod is arguably his m...

James Pond 3: Operation Starfish review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Don't remember James Pond? If you came to gaming with the 32-bit machines then that's understandable, although in the 16 bit era Pond was a real gaming icon. In the days before Lara Croft or the big orange marsupial our Jimmy was one of the most recognisable game characters, not in the same league as Mario, Luigi and co., Sonic and his friends or Ecco The Dolphin, but not acres behind (especially in his Robocod guise). For the uninitiated, Pond is an agent of F.I.5.H, a kinda sub-aqua MI5, if yo...

Altered Beast (Genesis)

Altered Beast review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

There are some moments in life that are bound to be a bit special. In the early nineties, to many happy gamers the arrival of Sega's Mega Drive console was one of those moments. They bought their machine, they plugged it in to the telly, many slotted in Altered Beast into the console and switched it on. The tension was growing... would it all be a huge waste of money, or would it be the greatest thing ever? There's a title screen with impressive, thumping arcade-style music: all good so far. The...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 review (PSX)

Okay then, folks, a quick show of hands. Who knows who Tony Hawk is? Good. Now how many of you had heard of Tony Hawk before the videogames? R-i-i-i-ght.

Tomb Raider Chronicles review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

That Lara Croft, eh? Despite the fact that, at the end of the previous game she.... ( SPOILER ) ...well... died ( END SPOILER ), she heroically turns up, regular as clockwork, ready to claim the Christmas number one spot in the gaming charts. So Christmas 2000 saw Playstation gamers once more taking control of the large-breasted one as she once more returned to do battle with the animal kingdom (if David Attenborough has done a documentary on it, then Lara has added it to the endangered species ...

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft (PlayStation)

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Tomb Raider was a massive hit at the time of it's release. It seemed that gamers couldn't get enough of Lara Croft's subterranean exploits. As such, when news of a second adventure for Miss Croft was announced (along with a deal that made the series exclusive to the PC and to Sony's grey box), it was very well received, and Tomb Raider 2 followed it's predecessor straight into the best-sellers list. The suits at Eidos realised that they were onto a winner with the Tomb Raider games, and so swift...

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Not very long ago, those kind people at Activision and Neversoft had a brilliant idea - an idea that became the really rather good Spider-Man for the Sony Playstation. If that game made your Spider-sense tingle, then you'll be pleased to know that there's a sequel out, and even more pleased to know that, hey, it's really not that bad either. Well that's good news...

Spider-Man (PlayStation)

Spider-Man review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Superhero games are never the most eagerly anticipated games on the release schedule. Gamers have learned the hard way, through years and years of substandard piles of junk such as the abysmal Superman 64. However, those superb people at Activision and Neversoft obviously have no idea about how downright bad Superhero games are supposed to be, because when they made Spider-Man for the Playstation, they made it... well... great.

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol (PlayStation)

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol isn't exactly one of the more highly-rated titles to have hit the Playstation. It (and it's sequels) in fact are generally thought of as being downright bad. And I'm not afraid to say that when this game was first popped into my grey box and played, I thought the same thing. I soon changed my mind, though, and here I'll try to explain why.

Silent Hill (PlayStation)

Silent Hill review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

What was that noise? It could have been a car backfiring in the street, but you think it seemed closer. Was that a creak on the stairs? Probably the wind in the trees outside, but you can't be sure. Hey, wasn't your door shut before? Now you're just being silly. Oh but look at you, you're very pale, you're jumping at the slightest thing, you're having sleepless nights... You've been playing Silent Hill again, haven't you....

Medievil review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Ah Tomb Raider, where would we be without you.... So many games today owe a great deal to the large-breasted one. Or, to put it another way, there are bucket loads of TR clones around. MediEvil, in a move that makes the preceding sentences relevant, is one of these games. Hurrah!

Hogs of War (PlayStation)

Hogs of War review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Pigs are fantastic animals. Where would we be without all the brilliant things they invented: sausages, ham, pork, bacon, and, if this game is to be believed, large quantities of weapons. Yep, the porkers are going to war, and it's up to you to help them. War has never tasted so good!

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

There's just something about the words 'Final Fantasy'. Those two words, when placed together, seem to send gamers everywhere into a rather exited state. In fact, it would be no overstatement to say that the Final Fantasy series of RPG games may well be one of the most revered in all of gamedom, right up there with Mario, Sonic and Zelda. So the pressure is very much on every time that Square choose to release a game in the series. And Final Fantasy VIII was perhaps under even more intense scrut...

Final Fantasy IX (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy IX review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

The Final Fantasy series is one of the most revered in gaming, and with good reason. Picking up one of these epic RPGs is a beautiful feeling - you almost know that you're in for a great time. And Final Fantasy IX, the last original Final Fantasy game to be released for the PSX, is certainly no exception. Returning to the old-school styling, with a tale of wizards and warriors replacing the steam punk trappings of the last two games, Final Fantasy is getting back to it's roots, and in doing so t...

Fear Effect (PlayStation)

Fear Effect review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Every once in a while fantastic new technology is introduced to the game playing masses, and eager to show off this new technology designers can all too easily forget the fact that the new technical mumbo-jumbo is supposed to be used to help make games greater. A prime example of this is Fear Effect for the Playstation. The front cover proudly boasts that this game is 'Featuring Motion FX™ Technology'. What it neglects to mention is that this game is also 'Featuring intensely bad load times, rep...

Breath of Fire IV review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Think Capcom, and what springs to mind? Resident Evil perhaps, or maybe Street Fighter. It's fair to say that they aren't really known for their RPGs. On the strength of this offering though, maybe they should be.

Apocalypse (PlayStation)

Apocalypse review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Bruce Willis has starred in a fair few classic movies, such as Die Hard and The Sixth Sense. However, he's also been in several that are downright average (such as The Last Boy Scout, and the bizarre Hudson Hawk). So which of these categories does his Playstation acting debut fall into? Although I dearly wish it were otherwise, this unfortunately falls into the latter. Apocalypse features the voice of Bruce, as well as a character made to resemble him as closely as possible. As the cover art sta...

Arc the Lad: Twilight of Spirits review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

Life is anything but black and white; good or bad. Things are much more complicated, and in Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits (ATL:TOTS), they make that lesson very apparent. Instead you are thrown into a world where two races believe the other to be evil, and two people that tie them together. While they are of the same blood, you quickly learn that how they were raised effected their attitudes. Learning the traits of these protagonists is what makes Arc the Lad go on, and turns the newest i...
