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 (PlayStation)

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 (PlayStation 2)

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...

Legacy of Kain: Defiance (Xbox)

Legacy of Kain: Defiance review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 06, 2004

The Blood Omen/Legacy of Kain series of games is, at best, a mixed bag of tricks. Everything started off well with the first Blood Omen game. A rescently bitten Kain is striken with vampirism, and goes on a merry quest to lovingly impale those that cursed him. It played out like an adult version of Zelda. The adventure carried action, fair graphics (for it's time) and an intriguing storyline. Afterwards we're introduced to Raziel. Raziel was one of Kain's vampire lieutenants whom served under hi...

Air Gallet (Arcade)

Air Gallet review (ARC)

Reviewed on March 05, 2004

When it comes to the wild and wacky world of shooters, few things are as much of a sure bet as the simple fact that you’ve probably seen it all before. It may look better or be better executed in some games, but true originality is hard to find because every good idea ever made has seemingly been replicated over and over again by companies in the hope of squeezing as much money out of the concept before it becomes as stale as old bread.

Super Mario Kart (SNES)

Super Mario Kart review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 29, 2004

By 1992, Mario was tired and needed a long vacation. He had conquered the world of video games with engaging, classic platformers that all have his name on them. Super Mario Bros. had saved video games in thousands of people's eyes; Super Mario Bros. 2 was strange, yet classic nonetheless; Super Mario Bros. 3 became the biggest selling video game in history, and as many would argue, the best game ever up to this point. Finally, Super Mario World showed the world that ...

Final Fantasy X (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 26, 2004

The first thing you will notice about Final Fantasy X is not the beautiful graphics, which show the great architectural structures or the beautiful lush green tropical forests or even the gargantuan mountains with winding paths covered in snow that you will become very familiar with. Nor will the first thing you notice be the voices, which bring each character to life, giving them a distinct personality. The first thing you will notice is the music, specifically, a quiet piano piece, dren...

Castlevania (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on February 25, 2004

You know, when it comes to video games, today’s kids have it easy. Do you remember back when you didn’t have fancy memory cards and the ability to save your progress was something that usually was done by scribbling down huge nonsensical passwords (if that option existed at all)? Or when designers compensated for a game's lack of size by making it frustratingly difficult?

DemiKids: Dark Version (Game Boy Advance)

DemiKids: Dark Version review (GBA)

Reviewed on February 24, 2004

One must give credit to Atlus for trying to spark a little controversy. DemiKids comes off as the anti-Pokemon. The majority of your monsters aren't cutesy puff-balls of fluff. They're demons who'll only fight for you if the price is right, and look more like rejects from the old Beetlejuice cartoon. Not only can you recruit Lucifer himself but there's also noticeable phallic imagery and a naked woman or two. It's just too bad that for all the uniqueness the game offers it all turns out to be a ...

Silent Hill 3 review (PS2)

I have this friend that I get together with every few weeks to simply hang out with and play games. A few years ago, the two of us had a great time with Resident Evil 2 and decided to find out if there were any other similar games on the Playstation.

Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon review (PC)

Reviewed on February 18, 2004

Broken Sword, the award winning series, finally makes a long-awaited return to the pc and a new generation of consoles alike. Revolution promised changes this time however and their claims haven’t gone unfulfilled. Scrapping the tried and tested interface of old, in favour of a bold new design, our old friends George and Nico return from their previous global adventures to thwart another worldwide disaster.

Final Fantasy Legend III (Game Boy)

Final Fantasy Legend III review (GB)

Reviewed on February 16, 2004

Final Fantasy Legend III was the final game in the trilogy made for Nintendo's gameboy. While there was no storyline connection between the three games, the way fighting worked was similiar throughout them all, and just the pathway through the game had its moments of deja vu. Despite the few similiar inferences though, most of Final Fantasy Legend III is a step in a different direction, and while some of the innovations are positives, many of the others feel unneeded and take away from the enter...

Suikoden II (PlayStation)

Suikoden II review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 16, 2004

Ever since the first Suikoden’s debut on the Playstation, the RPG series has grown into a popular franchise. Suikoden has spawned two sequels, two text adventures and a couple card games, not to mention a devoted following. In the videogame industry, sophomoric efforts are often times inferior to the original. Just look at the likes of Syphon Filter 2 and Metal Gear Solid 2(I’m not counting the NES games). Fortunately, Suikoden II joins the ranks of Silent Hill 2, Dynasty ...

Final Fantasy X (PlayStation 2)

Final Fantasy X review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 15, 2004

The Playstation II gave SQUARESOFT an entirely new oppurtunity. Instead of needing four discs to tell their stories, they could all pack it on one for Final Fantasy X, and with graphics to die for. Everything was looking up, and it seemed that SQUARE would one up themselves once again with the creation of the greatest Final Fantasy game yet... Too bad they fell a bit short.

Castlevania: Lament of Innocence review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 15, 2004

As the only vidoegamer ever to openly state Castlevania 64 as one of the greatest videogames of all time, I was extremely excited to see this videogame series return to a 3D format. I mean, I love the collection of Castlevania games being released on the Gameboy Advance, but in my dreams I imagined Castlevania returning to the next generation systems, once again in that despised 3D formats. I purchased Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (hereby known as C:LOI) as soon as it released, and quickly e...

Final Fantasy Tactics review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 15, 2004

Final Fantasy Tactics was a highly regarded game, and I knew that some day down the line I would HAVE to purchase it. I finally got around to play it, and at first I was a little confused, but once I understood all of the games mechanics, and the story began to unravel I was entrenched in one of the most magnificent videogame experience in my lifetime.

Star Wars Episode I: Jedi Power Battles review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 14, 2004

On May 19th of 1999, millions of people gathered to watch a movie that would change their lives forever. Some of these people were normal, like you and me, while others were dressed as Darth Vader, Chewbacca and Boba Fett. As the theater lights dimmed, the anticipation grew. After around fifteen minutes of ads and trailers, the famous words: “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away” appeared on the screen. Around two hours later, many people left the theater feeling shocked, confused and/...
