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 (Xbox)

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 (Xbox)

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 review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

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.

The Battle of Olympus (NES)

The Battle of Olympus review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

Greek mythology is great. You've got great big monsters, dashing heroes, powerful Gods... it really is top material for a game. It is odd, then, that this vast wealth of inspiration has very rarely been tapped by developers - I guess it's just too easy to stick things in Space, or in the future. So it's refreshing to see a game that not only is set in ancient Greece, but is based on a fully-fledged, licensed Greek legend. Yessir, Battle Of Olympus brings you everything that is great about Greek ...

Kung Fu (NES)

Kung Fu review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

When developing a game, there is one very important, very difficult choice to make. A choice that may well affect the sales of the game. The choice of what to name the game. Some people may ask what's in a name. Would a rose by any other name still smell as sweet (as a famous dead dude once asked)? Well, yeah, it would. But, more relevantly, would you buy a game called 'Average Joe'? No, only the most Viewtiful will do. The name of the game is important. So when it came to naming this little NES...

Lemmings (NES)

Lemmings review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

There are certain games that you have to have on one system or another. I'm fairly sure that it's some kind of legal requirement or something. Tetris is one such game. Lemmings is another (although you'd probably guessed that hadn't you....) As such when I saw a shiny new copy of Lemmings for the NES in my local game store I had no hesitation in buying it. So with a classic game in hand I scurried off home for what I fully expected to be hours of brain-taxing fun. I didn't count on the one thing...

Mega Man 4 (NES)

Mega Man 4 review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

Mega Man has been a part of gaming for longer than some of the younger gamers have been alive. For over a decade and a half the little blue guy has been running around 2D levels blasting evil robots and making pixel perfect jumps. It's a formula that, save a few exceptions such as Battle Network and Legends, has stayed pretty much unchanged for all of his gaming career. Most series would have lost all their fans years ago if this happened (step forward Ms. Croft), but not Mega Man, he just stays...

Ninja Gaiden review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

There are moments that define your video gaming career. The first time you play a game in an arcade. The first console that you ever own. The first time you complete a game. And, for many veterans of the NES days, the first time you beat Shadow Warriors: Ninja Gaiden (or just plain Ninja Gaiden as it's known outside of Europe). Those who weren't there can't possibly understand what it was like.... playing through those last few levels.... it was harsh. Sometimes, at night, I still wake up scream...

Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES)

Super Mario Bros. 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

Call it destiny. Call it fate. Call it ka, if you will. But something was obviously at work in Nintendo Towers on the day they decided not to release the original version of Super Mario Bros. 2 in the western world, choosing instead to paint the Mario characters onto an existing yet obscure Japanese platform game called Doki! Doki! Panic!. Because as great as the original Mario 2 is (and it's subsequent release on the SNES' Super Mario AllStars, and later on the Game Boy Color's Super Mario Bros...

Super Mario Bros. 3 review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

There are certain games that become legends. Games which become the benchmark by which all others of their genre are judged. In the heyday of the NES, Super Mario Bros. 3 was such a game, and although facing fierce competition from it's SNES cousin, many people still consider Mario 3 to be the pinnacle of 2D platform gaming. Because, well, it's pretty good, really.

Time Lord review (NES)

Reviewed on February 02, 2004

Time Lord was released in the Milton Bradley range of games (that included the similarly under-appreciated Digger T. Rock), and received only minimal attention when it came out. I too was among the crowd who really didn't pay this game it's due at that time. I was given this game the same Christmas that I was given Mega Man 2, and I spent so much time on Mega Man's game that Time Lord was given only a few courtesy plays before being put aside for nearly a year. Then, one Autumnal evening, I pick...

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 01, 2004

Remember all those excellent PSone and SNES RPGs we were blessed with? When I think of my PS2 I wonder where the hell all the good RPGs are. Sure, we’ve had some solid games like Suikoden III and Final Fantasy X, but the PS2 has nowhere near the same amount of great titles as those two systems. Namco is trying to give disgruntled fans like myself what we want with their massive 5-game Xenosaga series. Rumors say that this sci-fi epic will span two to three different cons...
