Pokemon Red (Game Boy)

Pokemon Red review (GB)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

This game needs no introduction. It started as a little Japanese game, and then became a worldwide phenomenon. Eventually, the games became so popular that even the figurative ďguy on the busĒ knew the difference between Pikachu and Blastoise. Hell, even the Pope took notice! Unfortunately, the original Red and Blue games have shown their age with the news of GBA remakes, but they still have their joy and nostalgia. Maybe itís because itís an innovative RPG with animal catching built in, or beca...

Happiness comes in small doses folks. It's a cigarette, or a chocolate cookie, or a five second orgasm. That's it, ok... - Denis Leary (No Cure For Cancer, January 12th 1993)

Breakdown (Xbox)

Breakdown review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

The problem with modern gaming is that for most of the time, developers aren't given the opportunity to innovate. Once the life blood of the industry, innovation has since gone the way of dodo with many new releases now consisting of sequels, remakes, licenses or remade licensed sequels. The risks are always great, but when something new comes along that breaks from the mold and dares to be different, the rewards can be immense. Of course, the exact opposite can be said to be true as was evidenc...

Silent Hill 3 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

If there is one thing that survival horror games have in common with the popular movies that inspired them, it would to be their affinity for sequels. No good horror franchise is complete without a handful of rushed, cash-in-quick style follow ups that milk the product for all it's worth. It's a fact that most sequels to popular horror movies are terrible, but it would seem that the reverse is true for their interactive counterparts. Where one becomes tired and stale, the other grows and evolves...

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (Xbox)

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

Tom Clancy certainly had his numbers right when he penned the original novel, Rainbow Six, back in 1998. Though the concept may have seemed far fetched at the time, the book accurately predicted a rise in global terrorism sometime during the first few years of the new millennium. Well what do you know? He was bang on the money... quite literally in fact! Sadly enough as recent history has taught us, if you're going to fight terrorism then you're also going to need to rewrite the old rules of eng...

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 25, 2004

Over the past few years, UBI Soft Montreal have been cultivating themselves something of a reputation. With award winning franchises such as Splinter Cell and Rainbow Six already behind them, their resume has slowly started to read more like a greatest hits of 3d action gaming than a brief summery of previous job qualifications. As such, it was in their careful and trustworthy hands that Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner, sought to secure the future of one of gaming's most beloved heroes. ...

Galaga (Arcade)

Galaga review (ARC)

Reviewed on August 23, 2004

Iíve always had a love for shooters, and thus, the arcade era of video gaming is what I consider to be the best times of my life in terms of gaming. A shooter, no matter how shallow it may be in depth, sometimes have the effect of that long-term addiction that refuses to let you put down your controller or stop putting in quarters. Unfortunately, I was one of those affected by that lust, so you can take a guess at where a good amount of my allowance went.

Under the Skin (PlayStation 2)

Under the Skin review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Aliens, we just can't seem to live with them and we sure as hell can't live without them. Though in the past they've used us as incubators for their young, processed our children into hamburger mince and hunted the remnants of humanity to the brink of extinction, we still find ourselves fascinated by the unknown mysteries that these galactic beings represent. Are we suckers for punishment or is our continued persecution justified? Who knows... but whatever the reason may be, their next visit to ...

Vib Ripple (PlayStation 2)

Vib Ripple review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Pure and utter madness, there's no other way to describe it! You see, there's this wire framed rabbit named Vibri who's currently bouncing all over a picture of my wife. And if that wasn't bad enough, it's also trying to extract a Shitake mushroom from my darling's nose... I mean really, she doesn't even like mushrooms!? *sighs* As strange as all this may sound, experienced importers are sure to recognise the scent of Japanese brand of lunacy when they smell it. A touch of musk, a splash of chea...

Espgaluda review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Though it may not happen very often, there are times when I am thankful to be living in Japan. While the locals may put asparagus on their pizza and sell used panties in their vending machines, there is one characteristic of the Japanese that my Gaijin brain can actually comprehend... their continued fascination with the old school shooter. Be it of the vertical or horizontal scrolling variety, this classic genre is thankfully still alive and taking quarters in the land of the Rising Sun. And th...

Grabbed by the Ghoulies review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Over the past 20 years, few developers have been as consistent or as critically acclaimed as Rare. Starting life as a small bedroom based code shop in the late 1970's, they soon rose to the forefront of a fledgling game industry with a string of classic titles for the now defunct, though still much loved, Sinclair Spectrum. In the years since, their keen eye for quality has become something of a calling card as time and time again, Rare developed games have gone on to assume near legendary statu...

Ninja Gaiden (Xbox)

Ninja Gaiden review (XBX)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

The problem with hype and anticipation is that it's pretty much a vicious circle. One creates the other, while the other feeds the one. Round and round this madness goes, building momentum and whipping fan boys up into near fanatical states of delirium. With the street date drawing closer the excitement level inevitably comes to a head as bladders quiver at the merest mention of the object in question. It's unfortunate then that for much of the time, the actual finished product is totally incapa...

Pikmin 2 (GameCube)

Pikmin 2 review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Next time you think you're getting the raw end of the stick at work, I beg you to spare a thought for Nintendo's often abused Pikmin. For these charmingly innocent do' ers of good are the poster children of workplace abuse. All day every day they toil the back breaking labors of life without even the smallest of compensations. Pulling the long hours from dawn to dusk, they shake it hard for the Man while dodging the constant dangers that lurk around every corner. Dying in their thousands, their ...

The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures review (GCN)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

Of all the great gaming icons ever to grace our living room screens, Nintendo's Link stands as perhaps the most fervently adored. Sure a little Italian plumber by the name of Mario may have cornered the mainstream market, but that hasn't stopped Link's army of dungeon crawling fanatics from declaring their favorite series #1. And why not be enthusiastic? For over the course of the past 20 years, the Legend of Zelda has spawned a steady stream of quality titles that have captured the hearts of yo...

Silent Hill 4: The Room review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 22, 2004

There comes a time in the life cycle of every franchise where its developers are faced with one of two choices. Should they cut their losses now and bow out respectfully? Remembered if they're lucky for their crowning achievements and other assorted mile stones. Or should they risk everything and plow forever onwards? Hoping against hope that the magic of old will carry them on, even when such concepts as innovation and originality have fallen by the wayside. On one hand there is honor and respe...

Super Mario Kart (SNES)

Super Mario Kart review (SNES)

Reviewed on August 21, 2004

I dislike racing games, most of the time. They seem to be bland and repetitive, going around a track, lap after lap until you finish, then after that it feels like ''Oh wow! That was fun!!'' (Sarcastic tone). Going around in circles repeatedly isn't really my cup of tea but after an invite to a pals house many years ago, my interest was rekindled by his SNES and his copy of Super Mario Kart. Who would have thought it? Nintendo plucked eight characters from the immensely popular Mario se...

Transfer Student review (PC)

Reviewed on August 21, 2004

Initially set for release in 1999, Transfer Student was a highly anticipated title in the English bishoujo game market. Advance word indicated the game would feature many desirable elements: multiple endings, multiple girls, and of course multiple sexual encounters. Add to that the fact the game was coming from JastUSA, a company whose triumvirate of Seasons of the Sakura, Three Sisters' Story, and Runaway City had made an important impression on North Ameri...

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 20, 2004

Throughout the glory days of the eight- and 16-bit systems, Konamiís Castlevania series earned a reputation as a tough, unforgiving collection of platform games. Moving your fragile (taking as few as four hits to kill) hero through level after level loaded with bottomless pits and awkwardly-placed enemies proved to be a frustrating task. An emotionally rewarding task, as beating Dracula, Death and the rest of the gang was an accomplishment to be proud of, but still a frustrating one.

Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 19, 2004

Youíre driving down the pavement, buzzing past every single car ahead. With your level 4 turbo kit, youíre the meanest machine on the track. Then, you approach a curve, and you slam on the brakes, struggling to stay on the road. Instead of making the turn, you fly to the opposite side, hitting the wall and spinning out. As you try to right your car, the cavalry of cars you just past scream around the curve, passing you. No, this isnít a real race; itís the ultra realistic Gran Turismo. Itís so r...
