Ninja Gaiden (NES)

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 (NES)

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 (NES)

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...

I look at Seasons of the Sakura and I think to myself, ''hey, this is bad! I'm doing more for these anime girls than I would probably do for real ones!''

Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht (PlayStation 2)

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...

WarioWare, Inc: Mega Microgame$! review (GBA)

I see a game like Wario Ware Inc: Mega Microgames being played from the passenger seat by a gamer tired of looking out the window on a drab car ride.

19XX: The War Against Destiny (Arcade)

19XX: The War Against Destiny review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 30, 2004

Sometimes, it’s amazing how one little section of a video game can completely alter one’s perspective of it. It can be amazing how a game that could be considered nothing more than decent can suddenly take on a whole new life because one sparkling effort by the programmers was pulled off so unbelievably well that the entire experience is enriched.

Dance Dance Revolution Konamix (PlayStation)

Dance Dance Revolution Konamix review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 28, 2004

Usually a game consists of a plot, enemies of some sort, a character you control and an ending after completing the game. Dance Dance Revolution Konamix does not have any of these elements, but is one of the most addictive games in recent memory. Based on the incredibly popular arcade versions, this dancing game doesn’t disappoint. Most of you probably snicker when you hear the words “dancing game.” I laughed at those words too; until I gave DDR a chance. Once I started playing I j...

Metal Gear Solid (PlayStation)

Metal Gear Solid review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 28, 2004

I have been a big gaming fan for a few years now, but I probably would be nothing more than a casual gamer right now if I hadn't of come across Metal Gear Solid. Metal Gear Solid (MGS) was THE game that made me so desperately want a Playstation. I would go to Wal-Mart and play the MGS demo every time I went there. No matter how many times I played the demo, it never got old.

Mr. Driller (Dreamcast)

Mr. Driller review (DC)

Reviewed on January 28, 2004

I enjoy a good puzzle game every now and then. Games like Tetris, Chip's Challenge, and Snood have all wasted a lot of time for me. That's what good puzzlers are - time wasters. They are easy to pick up and play, they're fun, and they're addictive. Mr. Driller (for the Dreamcast) is another example of such a game. Mr. Driller is a very simple game, but it is still incredibly challenging at the same time.

Tennis 2K2 review (DC)

I'm not a big fan of tennis, so I wasn't expecting much from Tennis 2K2. I didn't think that repeatedly hitting a ball over the net would be too fun.

SimCity 4 review (MAC)

Reviewed on January 27, 2004

Ah, another SimCity has been released. This is one of the few games that feature no ending, no real violence, and can keep yourself glued to the computer screen until you suffer severe eyestrain. Throughout the years, this franchise has made a phenomenal impact on the world of gaming. The original SimCity was an incredibly revolutionary game for its day. Compared to other games during this period, the original SimCity was vastly superior in many aspects, primarily its gameplay. The...

Mega Man review (NES)

Reviewed on January 27, 2004

In a world where we have been exposed to Spiderman, Superman, Batman, the X-Men and countless other superheroes, who would have guessed that the most famous videogaming hero would be none of the above? Or that he would not even have been recognized by the Justice League or any of pop culture's famous collections of do-gooders?

Threads of Fate (PlayStation)

Threads of Fate review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 27, 2004

Ever since the birth of the role-playing genre gamers have been bored to death by fetch quests. Whether it’s fetching an old man’s cane or a witch’s elixir, these painfully bland gaming moments always manages to slow down the action to a snail’s crawl. Now imagine a game where every single quest is a fetch quest; Threads of Fate is such a game. While more of an action RPG than a traditional RPG, Squaresoft’s opus manages to disappoint on nearly all levels.

B-Wings (NES)

B-Wings review (NES)

Reviewed on January 26, 2004

At first glance, B-Wing runs the risk of being considered nothing more than bottom of the barrel refuse — the sort of game that if you referred to as “a dime a dozen”, you’d be running the risk of grievously insulting the other 11 games making up that number.

Zone of the Enders (PlayStation 2)

Zone of the Enders review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 26, 2004

To begin this review, I'll indulge you in an anecdote, as I like subjecting my readers to them. I originally purchased this game entirely for the demo of Metal Gear Solid 2 that was bundled with it. I couldn't have cared less about the Zone of the Enders, I was more concerned with the sequel to which was arguably the best PlayStation game of all time (and as far as gameplay is concerned, MGS 2 will probably end up being arguably one of the best PS2 games of all time).
