Street Fighter X Tekken review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 02, 2012

Problems begin to arise when players realize the clock is running out on them, and often.

Wolf Fang: Kuhga 2001 SS review (SAT)

Reviewed on May 01, 2012

Vapor Trail has a sequel called Wolf Fang. Let's focus on the more pressing issue first: Vapor Trail managed a sequel.

ActRaiser (SNES)

ActRaiser review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 30, 2012

At a time when your simulation options were either Sim City or ActRaiser and games weren't exploring concepts such as existentialism and spirituality, the experience held up a lot better. In other words, ActRaiser's main selling point was how different it was at a time when gamers were eager to see something new. Had ActRaiser been just a great action game, it might not have stood out so much in 1990, but it would still be enjoyable now.

Circus Caper (NES)

Circus Caper review (NES)

Reviewed on April 28, 2012

I felt little guilt replaying through it with cheats on, and I recommend anyone who wants to check it out do the same...But fortunately the cheap deaths will fade away much sooner than the bears on unicycles and such instead.

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns (Atari 2600)

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 28, 2012

Pitfall II isn't a great game. It's tedious at some points, overly frustrating at others. However, it isn't a terrible one either. It has the classic Atari charm and an adventurous atmosphere.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PlayStation 3)

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 25, 2012

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots can best be described as an average game that has been carried by the legacy of its predecessors. While it utilizes many of the old-school storytelling and gameplay elements that made other games in the series fun, it completely misses the mark in other areas. Does that mean Metal Gear Solid 4 is overrated? You bet.

F.3.A.R. (Xbox 360)

F.3.A.R. review (X360)

Reviewed on April 23, 2012

When playing fear, you expect to be frightened by its concept and content, but the 3rd experience doesn’t contain many scares, which is baffling. I am not saying that the game is mundane and tarnished it has a profound storyline, and blood does spray like a hosepipe. By giving it a chance you are waking up the judgemental orb in your mind, you are the critic.

Ms. Pac-Man (Atari 2600)

Ms. Pac-Man review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 23, 2012

As you hone your skills, you'll find situations growing more desperate and thrilling. Each key factor-- mechanics, rules, progressively climbing difficulty, spot on collision detection--comes together to make a simple, fast-paced and addictive title.

Journey (Arcade)

Journey review (ARC)

Reviewed on April 20, 2012

Your idle band members mug and smile cluelessly even when your current guy gets hit. Then he falls and pouts and bangs his fists on the ground to the chorus of "Who's Crying Now." This is my favorite musical gaming pun by a long shot.

Legend of Grimrock (PC)

Legend of Grimrock review (PC)

Reviewed on April 19, 2012

What Almost Human tried and succeeded to capture was the feeling of isolation. There are no other friendly faces around, and the only trace of former occupants to be found are hastily-scribbled letters that you can find from time to time.

Alan Wake (Xbox 360)

Alan Wake review (X360)

Reviewed on April 18, 2012

When playing through the enthralling epic called Alan Wake your gaming senses will be rubbed with a marinade of complete and utter astonishment. The game will take you on a journey, a dark, ghostly crusade, where light is your best friend. The darkness overthrows you; it enables haunting figures to follow your innocent, startled, frame. In this game, it not wrong to be afraid of the dark, its not childish, or uncharacteristic. Because the darkness can overwhelm you, it can control you, your mind...

Moonsweeper (Atari 2600)

Moonsweeper review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 18, 2012

There was something addictive about Moonsweeper. A good portion of it was the same old story: command a spacecraft, gun down extraterrestrials, laugh at their burning pieces on the planet surface. But Imagic dressed it up in such a new and unique way that it felt fresh. You didn't just move back and forth at the bottom of the screen whilst shooting a horde of odd shapes, nor did you just zoom along and fire at the occasional threat a la Zaxxon. You actually did both!

Green Day: Rock Band (PlayStation 3)

Green Day: Rock Band review (PS3)

Reviewed on April 18, 2012

As a music reviewer I am intrigued, and excited to review Green Day rock band. I have seen the band three times including the colossal Wembley Stadium gig in 2010. The virtual slice is compelling and deeply interactive. You can play as leading man Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool. All you need is a guitar, some drums, and if you like to bellow, a microphone. The game is a lot of fun.

Dino Crisis (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 17, 2012

Dino Crisis dives straight first into the mechanics of Resident Evil one and two. It like playing those games, but with the undead replaced by sneering dinosaurs. Capcom have definitely stretched the elements of ‘’Panic Horror’’ in the game, giving the audience the same thrills, but adding some new creative dimensions. Like for instance, the character can walk while shooting, these small snippets make the game more accessible. The controls though, are pretty much the same.

Reviewed on April 15, 2012

Then you got anthropomorphic bottles in business attire, a painting of a nun that can whip out a huge tongue, and a towering sumo wrestler chilling beside Mount Fuji. Seriously, how do you pitch a game like this?

Fortune Builder (Colecovision)

Fortune Builder review (CVN)

Reviewed on April 14, 2012

It's more fun to watch the little dot-cars that multiply and move between businesses and residences as your town grows--or even turn away from the long dead-end road you forgot to industrialize. Single pixels were never so cute.

Missile Command (Atari 2600)

Missile Command review (A2600)

Reviewed on April 14, 2012

No, Missile Command is not easy on the eyes whatsoever, and yet somehow that's incredibly beautiful. Most of the screen is wide open nothing: a blank night sky and a bleak environment. There you sit, alone, vulnerable, no discernible geographic advantage, waiting in anticipation for those rockets to arrive. It's disquieting because you get the sense that you are it. You are the only remnants of a civilization, and once the bases you're defending are toast your only existence wi...
