Gitaroo-Man (PlayStation 2)

Gitaroo-Man review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 04, 2003

Gitaroo-Man will remain a heavily under-appreciated game. FACT. Sliding in silently to the music-rhythm genre, it joins Busta-A-Groove and Parappa as Konami's Bemani series' less attractive cousins. Less attractive in the fact that they don't whore themselves to the great unwashed. True beauty however is in the eye, or in this case ear of the beholder.

Dragon Power (NES)

Dragon Power review (NES)

Reviewed on April 01, 2003

Dragonball was a huge series in Japan in the late 80's and early 90's. While it had not reached American shores in the same fanfare, a single game had found its way through the barrier. The game was Dragon Power. Most Americans who then found this game never really knew its roots. Years later the TV series reached American shores, but Dragon Power had died out and had become unnoticed. But the game itself was entertaining, even if the roots were unknown. It mostly resembles the more modern day G...

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 31, 2003

The average American person has four basic freedoms. Freedom of speech, worship, freedom from poverty, and from want. But one man in the NSA has another freedom...a fifth freedom. He is Sam Fisher, operative of the Third Eschelon in the National Security Administration, USA.

MechAssault (Xbox)

MechAssault review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 31, 2003

Lightning streaks across the sky, lighting up the forest around you. You quickly take stock while the illumination abounds. Enemies spotted. Infantry, Elemental power armor, tanks, choppers, and worst of all, mechs. 5 storie tall lumbering beasts of destruction are coming for your blood. That's the bad news. Good news is you're in a mech too. As you continue to destroy everything, you hear growling coming from your stomach. It's time to put the game up and eat, but you don't want to. You can't. ...

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus (PlayStation 2)

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 26, 2003

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to tell you a little tale. It begins with a young boy named Sly Cooper, descendant of a long line of master thieves. The Cooper bloodline is infamous throughout the world, and each of Sly's ancestors have written down their greatest secrets and techniques in a diary called the Thievius Raccoonus, which has been passed down from generation to generation. More than just a book, the Thievius Raccoonus is the Cooper family's most prized heirloom, acting as both a le...

Namco Museum (PlayStation 2)

Namco Museum review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 24, 2003

Namco Museum is pretty much just one big set of mini-games. Coming with a quite large list of games from the age of gaming where sound, plot and graphics weren't important. It was all about High Scores and Gameplay, woo!

Dark Cloud (PlayStation 2)

Dark Cloud review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 24, 2003

Dark Cloud was an almost-likable experience. I had alot of fun building up my weapons, rebuilding towns and figuring out where the townspeople wanted to be. Unfortunantly, there's only a few dungeons in the game. And all they are is pretty much the same surroundings(although the levels are randomly generated) for 15-20 levels, and the same monsters as the dungeon before, except with a palette swap.

Battle Engine Aquila (Xbox)

Battle Engine Aquila review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 23, 2003

Battle Engine Aquila is yet another game in the ever growing line of mech titles in the Xbox's library. It'd be easy to overlook it in the deluge of mech games out there, but it'd be a mistake to do so. It offers unique things the other mech games don't.

Turok: Evolution (Xbox)

Turok: Evolution review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 22, 2003

The original Turok was amazing to me, especially as I had been a console-only gamer up to that point. The wedding of fast, fluid, non-linear FPS action with well-conceived levels struck me as a great and original formula at the time, and on that basic level I consider it superior to the almost universally-praised Goldeneye. Taking a trip back to my sleek, black Nintendo 64 confirms that Turok the Dinosaur Hunter stands the test of time as well.

Contrary to what you may have read, Devil May Cry 2 is NOT a bad game...I know it's not for everyone, but for everyone that likes games for the actual game, you'll love this. Here's why.

Max Payne (Xbox)

Max Payne review (XBX)

Reviewed on March 21, 2003

Plenty of games borrow from pop culture, but few do it heavily without insulting intelligence. Many games base their gameplay on a single gimmick, but a scant minority of these flesh the gimmick out or prop it up enough to be anything but annoying. Every other game these days wants to be hyper-realistic, but not many achieve realism without that very aspect being a huge fault. Quality humor is another screw that too often comes loose in video games. Max Payne, however, manages to be hip, funny, ...

Galerians: Ash (PlayStation 2)

Galerians: Ash review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 13, 2003

For people who are thinking about buying this game, I want to warn you. The Galerian series has never been marketed well, and reviewers on the pro magazines consistently can't seem to figure out how to categorize it. As a result, a lot of people try this game expecting X, and they're surprised and displeased when they get Y instead. So first, let me tell you what this game is *not*:

The Guardian Legend (NES)

The Guardian Legend review (NES)

Reviewed on March 04, 2003

Before the eight bit powerhouses such as the Nintendo Entertainment System and Sega Master System, console games were limited to a singular form of play. Generally the player would perform a certain number of tasks to complete a stage and then advance to the next level, which was pretty much the same as the previous level but with increased difficulty. Even with enhanced power most game makers chose to expand on the singular concept. Games were still in stages, but the stage boundaries became le...

Metroid II: Return of Samus (Game Boy)

Metroid II: Return of Samus review (GB)

Reviewed on March 03, 2003

Metroid II may not be the most graphically stimulating game ever, nor the most challenging. But without it, where would the plot setup for Super Metroid come in? Also, considering the technology for the time, it is a VERY well done game. I'm gonna use the same criteria to base my opinion on that Donnie W. also used, so here goes.

Pieces (SNES)

Pieces review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

Pieces is a videogame about jigsaw puzzles. Puzzles – the things that are used to keep small children quiet for a few hours, or to provide a contemplative, scholarly challenge to older folks. The potential is there for an incredibly boring gaming experience.

Final Fantasy VIII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VIII review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

I was expecting alot from Final Fantasy VIII when I purchased it earlier this year. Sure, FF8 was hated by many, and had recieved it's fair number of subpar reviews, but I had yet to experience a bad Final Fantasy game, and I did not think this would be the exception. As soon as I put in the game, I became very confused. The junction system boggled my mind, but I will get into that later on in the review. Basically, I could see why people disliked the game. It did not have the greatest feel at f...

Age of Empires (PC)

Age of Empires review (PC)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

Age of Empires was an interesting PC game. To conquer your enemies you needed to know exactly what you were doing, and the best method would be to set up the right amount of defence and attacking specialists, along with a useful collection of structures. Age of Empires is a true strategy game, cause to win you will need to use your wits, and hope your enemy does not.

Taboo: The Sixth Sense (NES)

Taboo: The Sixth Sense review (NES)

Reviewed on March 02, 2003

In a nutshell, the premise of Rare's Taboo - The Sixth Sense: type in a well thought-out and insightful question and get mindless gibberish back. Taboo claims to be able to see your future via tarot card fortune telling. How drawing upon a machine with the processing capabilities of a peanut accomplishes this is beyond me.
