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...

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GameCube)

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. 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. Do me a favor, and put any prejudgments aside rig...

NHL Stanley Cup (SNES)

NHL Stanley Cup review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

I have never really been a huge fan of hockey, although I have always been a fan of sports in general. I have never been a huge fan of hockey, but to say I have never been a fan of hockey at all would be a huge blatant lie. The fact of the matter is, I like hockey. I used to be a hockey player myself, in fact. And while I do consider the game to be rather boring to watch on television, I am still a pretty big fan of it. My favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins, and they have been for many yea...

Final Fantasy Chronicles (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy Chronicles review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

Is Final Fantasy Chronicles worth buying? YES! It's one of, if not the best, premiere compliations ever released, and it is a truly great game, as it hosts two of the greatest games ever made. I'd definitely reccomend buying it!

Breath of Fire IV (PlayStation)

Breath of Fire IV review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

Enjoying the Breath of Fire series has never been a series easy to enjoy. Ever since the original graced the presence of the SNES, the games have been mired in the doldrums of mediocrity. However, there was hope. After the frustratingly boring third release, Capcom decided that they were going to completely change the series and create a fourth game. However, as soon as I read the preview, there was a major question that needed to be answered.

Rygar (NES)

Rygar review (NES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

When asked to name their favorite video games of all time, chances are the name Rygar will not show up on most people’s lists. It was not a widely popular and recognized game when it was released in the Arcades, even though it was a pretty fun game that I enjoyed playing a lot. However, even fewer people have heard of Rygar for the Nintendo Entertainment System. And this is a true shame, in my opinion. After all, I had enjoyed playing the Arcade version of this classic game immensely, and I stil...

Adventure Island (NES)

Adventure Island review (NES)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

I remember my cousin having a NES with 20 games some years ago. One of those games were Adventure Island. I used to want to travel 200 miles just to play the game. While I probably wouldn't do the same today, it still is a very great game. This is actually one of my all time favorite games on the NES, and I still play it a lot, even to this day. It is simply one of the most fun games I have ever played, despite the fact certain elements of it could be described as tedious or dare I say boring....

Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 (Game Boy Advance)

Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

Super Mario Advance was an easy attempt by Nintendo to cash some money out of the Mario franchise. Thinking the average consumer will just buy anything with the Mario name in it, they put together a subpar port of a heavily aged Super Mario 2 for NES and remade it into Super Mario Advance. It sold well, and a lot of people liked it, but I was not one of those people. Super Mario Advance was a dry effort that never really clicked. It was missing a certain element that made the Mario series so e...

Golden Sun (Game Boy Advance)

Golden Sun review (GBA)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

It seems every week a new ''greatest game of all time!'' comes along and brings along with it a ton of hype. While sometimes this amount of hype is completely warranted (Final Fantasy 7 is a pretty good example of this), most of the time, the exceedingly increasing amount of hype causes decent games to look absolutely crappy. Metal Gear Solid is a good example of this. While it is a fantastic game in its own right, it was implanted into everyone's brains for over two years that it was going to...

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on April 09, 2003

The stars start to come out from beneath the dense air of the night sky. The camera pans around the entire area, showing a magestic view of a grand city. The words ''Final Fantasy VII'' are shown, displayed prominently in the logo of the game. The camera then swoops down, where a moving train is shown. As the train pulls into the station, a mercenary, formerly of the group SOLDIER, runs off the train. You have the chance to name him. After naming him, he encounters a group of soldiers. Were th...

Ghost Recon is one of the best games you will play all year. You're probably thinking, ''Whoah, back up a minute. Most reviews don't start by saying that. What proof do you have?'' Well, the game itself is proof enough.

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...

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. ...
