NBA Jam (Genesis)

NBA Jam review (GEN)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Back in the days when the majority of sports titles attempted to be as realistic as possible to force consumer eyes to widen, the makers of NBA Jam decided to go against the odds and try something different. Instead of the boring, everyday 5-on-5, NBA Jam is fast-paced 2-on-2 basketball featuring many of the familiar faces of the NBA from the time (1993).

Disney's The Jungle Book (Genesis)

Disney's The Jungle Book review (GEN)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Mowgli is a boy who has had a life different from that of most of us. He was orphaned while only a newborn, and he ended up being raised in the jungle by a pack of wolves that somehow managed to change those dirty diapers, provide him with almost a gallon of milk a day, and do everything else for him that needed to be done. But not all creatures that reside in the temperate bounds of the jungle are crazy about ''man cubs''.

Cool Spot (Genesis)

Cool Spot review (GEN)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Like the title suggests, in Cool Spot, you get to control the cool little red spot that walks and wears a pair of shades. Seeing that this unsung celebrity has been stuck on billions of 7-up cans and has been seen in a few commercials, the makers decided that he deserved his very own video game at long last.

Tetris (Game Boy)

Tetris review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When the Game Boy's Tetris (the original version of the classic) first showed its face to the world in 1989, it sent a shockwave throughout the globe and almost every gaming soul was instantly hooked on it. I remember playing it for the first time while it was on display at the local Wal-Mart and I couldn't believe what happened. I fell in love with the game right away. It wasn't because the blocks were good looking; it was the fact that guiding shapely blocks around a boxed-in area and making r...

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

Super Mario Land review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

After nearly five years of platforming excellence, including the game that pretty much saved the video game industry from doom (Super Mario Bros.), Nintendo released the Game Boy. You just knew that yet another Mario game was going to be made for it right away. Whether it was another weirdo like Super Mario Bros. 2 or just another hop 'n bop rehash of the classic original, gamers didn't care. Either way, we were going to get Super Mario Land and there was almost a 100% chance that the majority o...

Qix (Game Boy)

Qix review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

We remember certain things for years to come simply because of how weird the item or occurrence was. One example for me took place in the summer of '93, while I was twelve years old. Me and my dad took a trip to the beach like we did nearly every summer, and I just had it in my mind that I was going to bungee jump before I went home! And I did, twice. I look back on that now and wonder what the hell was wrong with me. I would never even think about doing such a thing nowadays.

Paperboy (Game Boy)

Paperboy review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Being a paperboy isn't an easy job. Think about it. You have to get up early, you have to throw the papers just right, and you don't get paid much. But the paperboy in Paperboy is different. The Daily Sun reports that the paperboy ''earns honors, big bucks!'' He might think he's good, but we'll see how good he really is when he's assigned a road full of subscribers that has every hazard in the world except for gunshots and kitchen sinks.

Pac-Man (Game Boy)

Pac-Man review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I'm pretty sure most people who have ever played a video game in their life have probably played Pac-Man at one time or another. If not, read on to hear about what this classic has to offer for the Game Boy.

Lock 'N Chase (Game Boy)

Lock 'N Chase review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

To be overlooked is to be virtually unknown; it's to be a great game that you never hear many, if anybody, brag about. Lock 'n Chase for the Game Boy is just that, terribly overlooked. On a usual trip to Wal-Mart with saved up cash on hand ready to buy a game, I had no certain one in mind. I just wanted a new game for the Game Boy, since Tetris and Super Mario Land were my only titles thus far. Only one game's back of the box really caught my eye like a Playboy magazine amongst a crowd of romanc...

The Castlevania Adventure (Game Boy)

The Castlevania Adventure review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

We've all heard the saying, ''Don't get your hopes up,'' more times than we care to remember. After the success of the Castlevania series on the NES, fans couldn't help but to get their hopes up higher than stratus clouds in a winter sky. I was one of these people. While I wasn't a big fan of Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, I never could get enough of the original, and that's what this one seemed like according to the back of its box.

Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World (Game Boy)

Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World review (GB)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

They say that good things come to those who wait. I had a certain parent that never played many video games at all, but for some reason, she always wanted to have a say in which ones I purchased. It wasn't because she was worried about protecting me from animated violence, but because she enjoyed watching me kick ass in games. One particular title that caught her eye from the very start was Boomer's Adventure in Asmik World. I begged to differ; it didn't look very fun to me, but she just wouldn'...

Super Mario Bros. (NES)

Super Mario Bros. review (NES)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Don't you want to go back to your childhood? You didn't have a care or worry in the world, apart from school and the dreaded homework. For over ten years, you swore you couldn't wait until you were finished with school, because you hated it. But then you finally graduated and had to go to college or work. Responsibility showed its ugly face and left you no choice but to work your ass off just to earn pieces of paper that we call 'money'. Eventually, you can't help but to reminisce and long to go...

Word Zapper (Atari 2600)

Word Zapper review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

The first time I played Word Zapper, I thought it was some sort of an educational game that was meant to help kids learn how to spell out words. The more I played it, the more I learned that not only is it not educational, it's not even fun in the least sense!

Video Pinball (Atari 2600)

Video Pinball review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

I grew up on the Atari 2600 and Video Pinball has always been one of my favorites. I started playing video games real early (I was about 3 or 4, if that old), so I don't remember what the first video game I ever played was, but Video Pinball is definitely one of them. Even after I started buying a few Atari 2600 games on my own, I still played Video Pinball just as much as almost all of my new games. Let's just say that I have a lot of memories and nostalgia for this game.

Video Olympics review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Pong fans rejoice! Pong was the first video game that millions of people instantly got hooked on and one of the first games to ever hit the arcades, if not the first. Video Olympics/Pong Sports (same game; some cartridges are named Video Olympics and others are named Pong Sports) for the Atari 2600 has the original Pong and much more!

Towering Inferno (Atari 2600)

Towering Inferno review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When a fire starts, it can turn into a deadly situation in a flash, especially when it's a towering skyscraper that has caught aflame. In a matter of minutes, the whole building can come tumbling down. Unfortunately, the same holds true for human beings. Whether a person is a punk or an admirable person with envious achievements, everything they own, everything they are, can be gone all of a sudden when a fire becomes their unwelcome neighbor. It's up to the heroes, the firemen, to put their saf...

Surround (Atari 2600)

Surround review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When you first turn on the game of Surround and begin playing it, you might wonder how it could possibly be a worthwhile game. All you see is solid, ancient looking blocks that are all the same boring old color. But like the saying goes: Looks can be deceiving. Before you know it, after playing a few rounds of this game that features nothing more than normal, every day squares or blocks that move around on a television screen, you find yourself growing more and more fond of a little game called ...

Sky Diver (Atari 2600)

Sky Diver review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was young, there was no real clear line between religion and video games. All I ever did was play video games. The younger years of my life were made up of nothing but the Atari 2600. One of my older brothers is almost seven years older than me, but video games seemed to be just as important to him as they were to me. He was the champion of the time while I was an up-and-coming gamer that wanted nothing more than to beat him at every game we played. One of our favorites was always Sky Div...

Seaquest (Atari 2600)

Seaquest review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

Humans are among the greediest of creatures. When a burglar breaks into a home or a robber decides to steal from a bank, they fail to believe that they're going to be caught by the police and thrown into jail. Greed completely takes over their mind and makes them forget about the harsh consequences. There's only one slice of cake left, and you know you should save it for your girlfriend, but do you? Heck no, you might get slapped later on when she finds out who ate it, but you don't care. You're...

Q*Bert (Atari 2600)

Q*Bert review (A2600)

Reviewed on October 31, 2003

When I was a kid, just about all I ever bought with my own money was video games. Whether it was with the aid of my almost microscopic allowance, my huge bundles of Christmas money, or just finding a dollar on the side of the street, video games were always what I had in mind.
