Centipede (Arcade)

Centipede review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

Centipede. Now that was always a fun and original game. I had played and enjoyed it for years on the Atari 2600 before I ever saw it in the arcade. Once I finally got the chance to play the arcade version of it, I noticed that the graphics were a lot different from the 2600 version (well that's a gimme), and that the gameplay seemed a bit faster. But the biggest difference between the two is the way the game is controlled.

Ms. Pac-Man (Arcade)

Ms. Pac-Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

There's no doubt about it, I've played Ms. Pac-Man more than I have any other arcade game by a huge margin. This compelling sequel throws in everything that was great about Pac-Man, along with new things that make it all the much better.

Pac-Man (Arcade)

Pac-Man review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

I don't know for sure what the most popular arcade game of all time is, but I know that Pac-Man is definitely sitting pretty high on the list. The reason it was and still is so popular is because it's so simple to play. You won't have to use much of your brain at all to learn how to play Pac-Man, but if you want to learn strategy you might. Pac-Man was also a game that could easily become addicting after only one or two plays.

Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

Zombies Ate My Neighbors review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

You gotta love it when you buy a used game and don't have the instruction booklet for it and the game itself leaves you wondering what the real story is all about. In Zombies Ate My Neighbors, it's apparent that the world is under attack, and two kids get to live the dream of their lives. They get to be the heroes! We don't need any Superman leaping tall buildings or a Captain Picard to cruise through space; a skinny freak boy with 3D glasses and an average looking teenage girl who both w...

Pac-Attack (Genesis)

Pac-Attack review (GEN)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

It seems developers have no problem these days with using their star characters to promote other games that are hardly relative. A quick look through the gaming platforms of old uncover several titles which are basically simple in execution, but with a mascot on top. Something that may spring to mind is Dr.Mario – a poor Tetris clone with Nintendo’s plumber hero stuck in for a few cheap sales. He’s not the only victim however. Sega threw sonic into a pinball machine for Sonic Spinball, although ...

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

I remember when I wasn’t a hardcore Castlevania fan. I enjoyed the first one on the NES, but I never really thought much of it. A couple of years ago I came into contact with Circle of the Moon for the GBA. Needless to say, I enjoyed it a lot. The game had a perfect mix of combat and role-playing game elements. I became determined to seek out Symphony of the Night, which is deemed the pinnacle of the Castlevania series. Eventually I was able to get my hands on a copy, and the rest is histo...

Mega Man 2 (NES)

Mega Man 2 review (NES)

Reviewed on January 16, 2004

Mega Man 2 filled me with so much hope as I first put it in to my NES. After hating the original Mega Man, Mega Man 2 just seemed like a huge change for the better. There was actually a story in the game this time (although it's pretty crappy), there were difficulty levels to choose from, and there were three more stages. ''Looks like Capcom turned their act around!'' I said aloud to my imaginary friends. Then came actually playing the game. Besides the addition of a couple ...

Donkey Kong Country (Game Boy Advance)

Donkey Kong Country review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Every now and then a game comes along that you just can't put your feelings for into words. I find that those games are typically games that do nothing incredibly original, yet set a precedent for future games. I realized this just tonight as I sat down to review Donkey Kong Country (DKC) for the GBA. The game, stripped of all it's monkey shenanigans and banana collecting, is nothing more than a clone of Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. Even if it's just a clone, it's one ...

Dino Crisis 2 (PC)

Dino Crisis 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Few games make me actually interested in playing their sequel. The SimCity and Silent Hill series stand out in my mind as franchises that have always interested me, but recently after playing Dino Crisis, I found myself wanting more. While I was perusing the bargain bins at my local game store, I noticed that Dino Crisis 2 was a mere eight dollars, and I also figured that it would put my newly acquired gamepad to good use, so in a few minutes, the game was mine. I got...

Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Why does Nintendo do the things that they do? Seriously, sometimes it just really bothers me. When fans were calling for a 3D Pokemon RPG of epic scale like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Nintendo responded that they did have Pokemon games in the works for the Nintendo 64. Firstly, they had Pokemon Stadium, which took arguably the worst part of Pokemon, battling, made you do it over and over again, all for nothing, since you couldn't level up your Pokemon and transfer them b...

Dino Crisis (PlayStation)

Dino Crisis review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Capcom claims to be the best in the business at creating survival horror games. It's true that they have made some very good survival horror games over the years in the Resident Evil franchise, however many people simply didn't care for the games or only liked a couple of them. Fearing that their franchise would grow stale and they'd lose a major money maker, Capcom set out to diversify its survival horror business. The result of the attempted diversification was Dino Crisis, a gam...

Grandia II (Dreamcast)

Grandia II review (DC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

The strong silent type, the kid on the run, the boy attempting to become a man -- all stereotypical character roles for RPG heroes not found in Game Art's Grandia II. Instead, you're treated to a foul-mouthed lead character, a talking bird, a naive Nun with a demon inside of her, a wise barbarian, and a delightful android, all trying to save the world while trying to get along with each other. Grandia II features a strong cast in a solid story, featuring a phenomenal battle ...

Mega Man (NES)

Mega Man review (NES)

Reviewed on January 15, 2004

Mega Man has always been one of the stranger names in video gaming. Just about any Mega Man game that is released is bound to sell a lot of copies. Yet, you don't see a bunch of Mega Man fanboys out there, especially compared to Mario, and Square. Perhaps this is because Mega Man has never been particularly loyal to any system, or company. Mega Man currently has a game on the PS2, and the Gamecube. As well as tons on the GBA. Mega Man checked in for both the N64, and PS, and had games on the SNE...

Gun.Smoke review (NES)

Reviewed on January 14, 2004

Against the blistering heat of a sun that refuses to set he stands, a gunslinger so intent on his life's purpose that he does not have time for such dalliances as a mistress or a name. The desert winds have carried this weary wanderer and his noble steed to a dry gulch called Hicksville, where the citizens fear for their safety and scurry to their houses at the very mention of the Wingates, a gang of ne'er-do-wells who think nothing of violence and get their jollies off of harassing the defensel...

Legend of the Mystical Ninja (SNES)

Legend of the Mystical Ninja review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 12, 2004

A quick search of GameFAQs for ''Goemon'' will yield an astounding number of games on systems ranging from the NES to the PlayStation 2, yet closer inspection will reveal that only three have been released in the United States. The first of the Western releases, titled Legend of the Mystical Ninja, was released in 1991 with little commercial success. Nor did either of its successors do all that well (perhaps because they were released on the failing N64), so it's not surprising that Konam...

Super Metroid (SNES)

Super Metroid review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 11, 2004

Metroids. Most terrifying of alien life-forms, they float about effortlessly while seeking their prey. Upon spotting a target, they swoop down, clamp down with their mighty jaws, and feast on the energy of their hapless victim. When their hunger is finally satisfied, they float away just as easily, leaving nothing but a hollow shell of their dinner that crumbles with the slightest touch.

Violent Storm (Arcade)

Violent Storm review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2004

Admittedly, there are many games that I would slap under the heading of “Final Fight clone.” There are two reasons that FF is the achievement by which all other side-scrolling beat-em-‘ups are measured: its astounding quality (at least in its original, arcade form), and second, because the genre doesn’t exactly allow for a whole lot of variation, and FF just happens to be the title that most people first remember when they consider the genre. Walking from left to right and smacking the snot out ...
