Super Metroid (SNES)

Super Metroid review (SNES)

Reviewed on June 05, 2003

It is always amazing to me how incredibly popular the Metroid series has become. The original was a deep and expansive game, but it didn’t have the personality of Super Mario Brothers or the mega-hit stamp of other games. The first sequel was relegated to the Game Boy, land of puzzlers, yet became an action game that survived and thrived. Continual growth was a calling card for both: they lurked and lurked on the Nintendo Power charts for years after their original release. Whe...

Altered Beast (Genesis)

Altered Beast review (GEN)

Reviewed on June 04, 2003

Timing is everything in the business of video games. A simple difference of a year can radically change everything. Just ask Sega; they’ve been on both ends of the stick with all of their system releases. The Genesis capitalized on a public that was fed up with constant delays to the Super Nintendo. However, the Saturn and Dreamcast both showed signs of being ill-conceived consoles that were not powerful enough to satisfy developers.

Legend of Mana (PlayStation)

Legend of Mana review (PSX)

Reviewed on May 30, 2003

Non-linear gameplay is an odd subject. Games such as Final Fantasy X are routinely villainified for their adherence to linear gameplay. The masses shout, “Give us freedom!” Yet games which do feature non-linear gameplay do not sell as many copies, the genre of MMRPGs excluded.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (PlayStation)

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night review (PSX)

Reviewed on May 21, 2003

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night in my mind was the highest plateau of the Castlevania series. Everything grand that was made throughout the series was packed into this one game, and it has become what some would call the greatest 2D adventure game of all time, rivaled only by the original Super Mario Brothers Games. Castlevania: SOTN is just that good. At first it may look complicated and bland, but the game picks up fast, and it never dies out. With classic bosses revised, and just an overal...

Skies of Arcadia Legends (GameCube)

Skies of Arcadia Legends review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 18, 2003

I have been hearing about how Skies of Arcadia was this innovative RPG, one that is underated an unappreciated. Well, I have heard that about alot of game and most times it is unappreciated for reasons. I say most of those games, because Skies of Arcadia is definitely an exception to that. Well, back to my little story; so I heard about this Skies game, and I didn't believe it would be that great, but then my Playstation 2 broke. That left me with no RPG's around as I sent my PS2 to be fixed. So...

Darkwing Duck (Game Boy)

Darkwing Duck review (GB)

Reviewed on May 12, 2003

As all of you should know, Darkwing Duck was a duck who walked and talked like any human and wore a purple suit, and was supplied with various devices from his sidekick Launchpad McQuack and his neice Gosalyn. He had enemies galore, including the fearsome five, which spurred on this seven staged game in which seven of his greatest enemies lurked to stop Darkwing Duck himself. This was the premise for the creation of the NES game that was superb, so they ported it onto the gameboy, but to make it...

Lion King (SNES)

Lion King review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 09, 2003

Lion King is a movie that was a boy office smash hit. Developed by Disney, adults and childrens sat on the edge of their seats, waiting to see what would happen next. So sure enough, Disney was not stupid and they developed a videogame based on the movie. However, unlike many videogames based of movies, this one is actually really good. The gameplay is as expected, but you will hang off ledges, avoid a stampede, and make your way to Scar. All which will lead to one wonderful experience.

Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 04, 2003

First of all, I would like to say I believe this is the best of all the Metroid games, rivaled only by it's prequel Super Metroid. It is entertaining, and has a difficulty that is able to be conquered. It's not the simplest game, and it takes awhile, but once you figure out the bosses weaknesses everything is beatable. I enjoyed my time through Metroid Fusion, collecting items, and shooting up bad guys. While it is anything but a perfect game, it is enjoyable nonetheless.

Wrecking Crew (NES)

Wrecking Crew review (NES)

Reviewed on April 27, 2003

In spite of the fact that it features Mario, the world's most famous plumber, Wrecking Crew never managed to pull itself out of the ditch of unjustly unknown games. Yet, while boasting nothing outlandish, Wrecking Crew is a good time-waster that everybody would enjoy if he'd just care to give it enough time. Of course, in order to be able to do so, he must first find the game itself, which, I'll admit, isn't a very easy task nowadays.

Castlevania (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on April 26, 2003

Castlevania, considered by many as one of the best action series Konami came up with, made its debut on the NES when Simon Belmont, a guy with time and guts to spare, thought about defying Lord Dracula in his old and crumbling castle. Like most gamers who indulge in action games (who doesn't?), I too am a fan of the Castlevania series. It may not look like it since I'm about to bash the original title, but I adored the SNES and Genesis titles, and while I wasn't particularly enthralled wi...

Tekken 4 (PlayStation 2)

Tekken 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 26, 2003

Had it not been for Namco and its stupendous Tekken series, Sony's console would surely have been ignored by fighting enthusiasts. While Sega's Dreamcast kept getting faithful ports of Arcade classics (of which there are too may to list!), the PlayStation could barely oppose some resistance with some of the same titles getting horrible conversions (without mentioning how it lacks a proper additional joystick for fighters). Thankfully, PSX enthusiasts could always revert back to the...

Devil May Cry 2 (PlayStation 2)

Devil May Cry 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 21, 2003

Devil May Cry was a huge surprise hit by Capcom. Dante became the ultimate badass in videogaming, a half devil creature with one heck of an attitude. He was quick witted with a flashy statement, and guns to back it up. That was the original Devil May Cry, the sequel has a much lamer Dante, and overall a lamer game. Now this review is going to center on the many bad points in Devil May Cry 2, but don't get me wrong, this is not really a horrible game. I do not really regret buying it, although I ...

Quest: Brian's Journey (Game Boy Color)

Quest: Brian's Journey review (GBC)

Reviewed on April 18, 2003

Quest 64 was a very dissapointing game, but it did not end up destroying the series. Instead Quest: Brian's Journey would finish the failure of Quest 64. While neither of these games were terrible, they were met with horrendous critics. The only thing Quest: Brian's Journey had going for it, is that most people never even realized it existed. I only found it used, and because I was searching for it. See, Brian's Journey was released, but never survived on the shelves long. Within a month many vi...

Puss 'N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure (NES)

Puss 'N Boots: Pero's Great Adventure review (NES)

Reviewed on April 16, 2003

I have enjoyed a wide variety of games over the years, ranging from some of the popular favorites, to some of the more unknown ones, to the very bizarre ones. I think the game reviewed here falls under the third category. Puss and Boots: Pero's Great Adventure is a weird game. It's fun, but let's face it, any game which involves a mouse trying to save a cat by going around the world is just a TAD weird, don't you think? Like I said, this game is fun as hell, and I really enjoyed it. It is one o...

If you haven't heard of the latest title in Nintendo's Legend of Zelda franchise yet, there's a good possibility you're either very secluded, or living underneath a large rock. Or secluded under a large rock; it doesn't really matter which. In any case, the vast majority of people reading this will have heard of the game, and in fact, probably already love it or despise it depending on a number of factors.
