Beer Run (Apple II)

Beer Run review (APP2)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

Sirius Software's 1982 advertising material called platformer Beer Run 'a light-headed game of suspense.' Certainly the beer puns could flow thick and fast and in a sort of yeasty fashion where this game is concerned. But except for the twin schticks of cuteness and having a really cool title, Beer Run is one of Sirius Software's most minor efforts for the Apple II, and the surprise is that it's so slight that it just doesn't prompt any alcohol-related humour at all.

Bio-Hazard Battle (Genesis)

Bio-Hazard Battle review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 05, 2004

For all the good that scientific advances have done for our planet, there is a dark side to this technology. Whether it be pollution, the threat of nuclear war, chemical weapons such as anthrax or something else, the possibility that our world’s progression could lead to its downfall is present.

Harvest Moon 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on February 04, 2004

Guy gamers are notorious for not being able to get the girl. Why is it though? Mostly because sitting around playing video games all day, is really LAME compared to, oh say watching movies all day. It makes perfect sense! Also, I guess women find it unattractive to get up, scratch your belly, get some bean burritos, then proceed to play games all day without doing anything hygiene oriented! Either way, Natsume has been coming out with games to satisfy the lonely gamer for quite a few years. The ...

Sengoku (SNES)

Sengoku review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 04, 2004

During the age of the Neo-Geo arcade and home video games, SNK was quite fond of cranking out shooters and brawlers of all shapes and sizes. Whether they were putting mollusk heads on generic thugs in Mutation Nation or creating a new Contra in Metal Slug, one thing seemed clear — whether you liked or disliked the games, you WOULD notice them.

Mega Man: The Power Battle review (ARC)

Adventure after adventure finds the Blue Bomber forced to struggle through a thematic assemblage of booby traps and scatterbrained minions before battling the stage's final Robot Master face-to-face. Questions run through my mind when I ponder this fact, such as:

Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines review (PC)

''Okay men, it doesn't look good... Our spy got killed trying to steal an enemy uniform. Our truck was blown up with our driver in it. The marine and me are left stranded in this building, and the sapper and the sniper are left hiding in the ruins, with an enemy patrol heading straight for them. There's only one thing for it....''

Connections review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

There are some words that, while individually appear harmless, placed together make a terrifying combination. It's like putting ingredients for a bomb together, or something. One of those words is 'Educational'. Sure, it may bring up memories of days at school where the teacher who you know hated you more than everyone else made you read your 'F' grade homework to the class, after which the school bully hung you up by the underpants, but as a word it's not all that offensive. Another word is 'ga...

Dungeon Keeper (PC)

Dungeon Keeper review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Most games cast you as a simpering, whiter-than-white hero, who (most RPG games excepting) has virtually no character flaws and is always tall and handsome, or thin and pretty. The sort of people who in real life everyone would just hate ! And so it is with great pleasure that I tell you that Dungeon Keeper by Bullfrog encourages you to bring merry hell upon these people, and then some. At last, justice is served.... on a platter!

The Curse of Monkey Island (PC)

The Curse of Monkey Island review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

A quick recap: (This paragraph contains MAJOR SPOILERS for the first 2 Monkey Island Games - you have been warned). The Monkey Island saga features Guybrush Threepwood, a young pirate, LeChuck, his undead nemesis, and Elaine, his true love. In the first game, Guybrush is a fairly young boy who wants to become a pirate. You take control as Guybrush arrives on Męlče Island, hoping to achieve this lofty goal. While on the island he meets and falls in love with Elaine Marley, the governor of the isl...

The Secret of Monkey Island review (PC)

It would be easy to simply fill this review up with pirate-y puns and lame pirate or monkey related jokes (after all, that's what the game did). I'll try my best not to though!

Burai Fighter (NES)

Burai Fighter review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

...Okay, maybe R-Type wasn't the best comparison, but it's close. Think Forgotten Worlds - that's more like it. Burai Fighter was one of the games that I got with my NES way back in the day, and it was the second game that I played on the machine. As such, although this game is far from the most technically impressive NES games out there, it really blew me away when I played it, and some of that magic feeling is still present every time that I play the game, even today. I will try my best not to...

The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants (NES)

The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants review (NES)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

The Simpsons have had mixed fortunes in the videogame world. Their self-titled arcade game was sheer class, and was responsible for the loss of a good deal of my pocket money when I was younger. Their console games, though, are a different barrel of beer. Rather than being good, wholesome, Duff beer, they are vile, evil, duff games. Bart vs. The Space Mutants is no exception, which is a great pity.

Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox)

Halo: Combat Evolved review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Launch. Game. Roll those words about in your head for just a moment. What springs to mind? Recent history dictates that it will probably be thoughts of lacklustre efforts like Ridge Racer V and it's ilk - games that certainly looked very pretty, but lacked any gameplay flair that set them apart from any previous system. Well hold on to your dungarees, boys and girls, because if that's what you were thinking, then Halo is going to leave you ecstatically surprised. Sorry to ruin any suspense that ...

The Simpsons: Road Rage (Xbox)

The Simpsons: Road Rage review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Take one of the best games of the last five years. Add one of the best television shows of the last ten years. You should have yourself a pretty fine game, should you not? Such is the thinking behind The Simpsons: Road Rage. The basic idea is that it's Sega's superb driving game Crazy Taxi, only with Simpsons characters and locales instead of the near-real life locations and over-the-top taxi drivers. However, The Simpsons have had a... shall we say unfortunate history in gaming - basically, Sim...

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Tony Hawk is a bit of an odd man. While normal people spend their spare time reading, watching TV or taking healthy walks in the fresh air, our Tone prefers to spend his days travelling around on a skateboard, doing his very best to smash as many of his bones (and if he's lucky, his internal organs) as is possible by performing outlandish and frankly silly moves, all in the name of sport. But despite his dubious line of work, Tony deserves respect - not only from his fellow skaters, but also fro...

NBA Jam (Genesis)

NBA Jam review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

Most of us get wrapped up in our nostalgia and daydream about it to our own detriment. The programmers of NBA Jam took notes on their sporting fantasies and produced an immensely addicting game. I suspect they, too, had nerf hoops slung over closed closet doors and weren't good enough for the real thing. And felt the magic of being able to dunk--first when you jumped, then on your tiptoes--in that brief time when puberty was still wonderfully novel, when you swore that your own imaginary basketb...

Aerial Assault (Sega Master System)

Aerial Assault review (SMS)

Reviewed on February 03, 2004

At first glance, a horizontally-scrolling shooter such as Aerial Assault may be thought of as a pretty generic offering, giving the player a bunch of things they’ve seen many, many times before. Locations stretching from overseas to an enemy base to outer space. Giant bombers and ships as bosses. A bunch of small, generic little planes, tanks, boats, etc. attempting to prevent you from reaching that level’s boss.

Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

People like vampires. It's true, they do. Understandable, really - they have really dapper capes, cool superhuman abilities, and, well, if it wasn't for vampires the world would never have been introduced to Buffy. So , yessir, people like vampires. Those nice folks at Eidos and Crystal Dynamics obviously realise just how much fun vampires are, as they've chosen to bring you the latest instalment of the best-selling Legacy Of Kain series. Which is good of them.

Quantum Redshift tells the exciting tales of Dr. Sam Beckett. Sam invented a time machine that allows him to move to the past and inhabit everyday folks in order to change history for the better - stopping senseless deaths, saving marriages and other such good deeds. Along the way, Sam is guided by his good friend Al, a colleague from his own time who can appear to Sam (and some animals and children) in the form of a hologram in order to give Sam advice, moral counselling and the like.
