The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 27, 2002

Zelda is one of the two focal points of Nintendo's fame, along with Super Mario Bros. Zelda: Link to the Past is at near the top of the series, only rivaled by Ocarina of Time. There is good reason why Link to the Past is at the top, for all the Zelda elements you loved in later game, is truly implement to it's finist in this game. This is what really put Zelda on the map, and made it into a legacy.

Serious Sam (Xbox)

Serious Sam review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 26, 2002

Serious Sam was released on PC a few years ago to (mostly) great reviews. I recall one major PC magazine review saying something like “Doom is back!” and generally saying that Serious Sam hearkened back to the old days of first person shooters, and felt a lot like Doom. I disagree. There is obvious Doom influence on the game, and it DID seem like the gameplay had just walked out of a time machine- but not from the Doom era. From even farther back than that. It feels closer to games like Ro...

NES Open Tournament Golf (NES)

NES Open Tournament Golf review (NES)

Reviewed on December 21, 2002

My first golfing game, and truth be told it almost was my last. Looking back the game was not bad however, it just really tested my patience. It is the basis of almost all the Nintendo games after this, including Mario Golf 64, which was a quality game. This is basically just a normal golfing game, with nothing new to it, besides that Mario is the golfer.

Double Dragon II: The Revenge (NES)

Double Dragon II: The Revenge review (NES)

Reviewed on December 20, 2002

So what was their first console game you have ever played? I am probably one of the few people in the world who can say that the very first console game they owned was Double Dragon II for the NES. It came with the system that Easter morning, and it was the first game I popped in, even before that Super Mario Bros game (I think). And I loved it for so many years. The game was just fun, with the kicking, punching, and of course the cheap twirl kick. This game was entertaining, but very challengin...

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon (Xbox)

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 18, 2002

Red Storm Entertainment's Ghost Recon is the second Xbox title bearing the Tom Clancy name. Once again you're up against the evil communist menace- I see a pattern developing here. You're in command of an elite military squad called the Ghosts. The Ghosts sneak around Russia and the surrounding countries sabotaging stuff, killing Russian nationalists, and basically doing whatever they can to keep Mother Russia from returning to its former power.

Metroid Fusion (Game Boy Advance)

Metroid Fusion review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 15, 2002

Samus Aran has really big guns. In all senses of the word. That could perhaps explain her immense popularity among both sexes. A female role model due to her strong yet beautiful personality, and a knockout sex demon that shoots stuff keeps all gamers happy. Both the original Metroid for the NES and Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo capitalize on this fact. Even on the Game Boy, Samus remains a major Nintendo mascot. Lurking underneath layers of cybernetic armor is a softl...

Steel Battalion (Xbox)

Steel Battalion review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 13, 2002

Before doing my review, i must warn that Steel Battalion may be the most difficult game to review this year and that the final score may not represent the fun you'll have playing with it. The game is so different from anything else found in home video gaming that it's hard for it to find a place in the categories of modern games.

Castlevania: Dracula X (SNES)

Castlevania: Dracula X review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 12, 2002

Castlevania: Dracula X is a game based on a PC Castlevania game that was a complete hit. However instead of bringing a direct port of the game to the Super Nintendo, they remade it drastically. Most say that this was a horrible thing, but I really do not know. I have never experienced the PC game, and Castlevania: Dracula X is a fun experience, and a middle classed game in this great series. It has the same feeling as the past games in the series, as you just move from point A, to point B while ...

Golden Sun (Game Boy Advance)

Golden Sun review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 09, 2002

Nintendo is a dominating company, but ever sense the Super Nintendo died out, so did their success with RPG's. Then the Gameboy Advance came out, a system very similiar in power to the Super Nintendo, and it was time to bring back the RPG's. However they didn't just port old RPG's. They created new ones. Golden Sun is such an example, and was a very succesful one. It create an immense quest and an original magic system known as Psyenergy, and little creatures known as Djinn. Immense puzzles, and...

Star Fox Adventures (GameCube)

Star Fox Adventures review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 07, 2002

To understand my disapointment in StarFox Adventures, you first have to understand my anticipation. First of all, when Dinosaur Planet was coming out on the N64 without StarFox, I was planning on picking it up. It looked like a very good game. Then when Starfox was linked to the game, I put that on the top of my list; next to SSBM. I love everything Starfox has ever done, and Rare has been the creaters of many great games. As soon as a release date was set, I preordered it. I waited those months...

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES)

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest review (SNES)

Reviewed on December 06, 2002

Donkey Kong Country was a big hit, and a sequel was a definite money maker. Therefore Rare was on top of it, and soon enough we had another Donkey Kong Country game in the making, without the main hero. At first people were skeptical, but it still had Diddy and similiar gameplay. Donkey Kong Country 2 is a very good sequel that does the job well, and follows up a terrific game.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 (PlayStation 2)

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 06, 2002

Someone should ban the use of the word 'extreme' when it comes to describing the sports chosen by people who wear baggy pants. Why is skateboarding more extreme than, say, darts? The risk of injury in darts is surely higher, considering it is played mostly in places that people congregate to drink vast quantites of alcohol. But, I digress.

International Superstar Soccer 64 (Nintendo 64)

International Superstar Soccer 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on December 04, 2002

Alot of soccer games have come and gone in America, and had only a passing interest. Of course, they weren't even sold at Japan cause they have even less support for soccer there. When the N64 first came out, this was one of the games to appear very early on the system. As a soccer game it was ok. It is basically Fifa with just cheaper controls.

TimeSplitters 2 (Xbox)

TimeSplitters 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 03, 2002

A few Christmas’s ago (on the happiest Christmas of my life) I received a PS2 and the game Timesplitters. The game blew me away. The graphics were so much better than any other game I'd ever played at that time, the single player was cool, the multiplayer kicked complete ass, and there was hardly any work put into the story. Formula for a damn fine game, if you ask me. Thankfully, Timesplitters 2 for the Xbox is pretty much an exact copy of TS1 with graphical improvement, more characters, m...

Breath of Fire (Game Boy Advance)

Breath of Fire review (GBA)

Reviewed on December 01, 2002

Breath of Fire is a classic RPG ported from the SNES to the newly made Gameboy Advance. They added a bit to the game, but kept the original entertainment that had always been there. I was one person who never got to experience any of the Breath of Fire series made by Capcom, before this game for GBA that I picked up, because it looked entertaining. At first this game bored me, and I put it away for multiple months, but then I went back to it, and I found myself playing it more than all of my oth...

Kakuto Chojin review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 29, 2002

As a fan of fighting games, I've been kind of disappointed with the lack of games the Xbox has in this genre. As of a couple weeks, all the Xbox had was Kabuki Warriors, UFC Tapout, and Dead or Alive 3. One good game and two crappers. This week sees the release of two promising looking fighters; Kakuto Chojin and Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, so naturally I'm quivering with anticipation. I opted to pick up Kakuto Chojin over MK5, mostly based on the fact that I've already played quite a fe...

Donkey Kong Land 2 (Game Boy)

Donkey Kong Land 2 review (GB)

Reviewed on November 28, 2002

Instead of making it an entirely new Donkey Kong game, like they did before, this time they just ported the game as accurately as they could from the SNES. That was really not a bad mood, for Donkey Kong Country 2 was a very good game, and Donkey Kong Land 2 lives up to it nicely.
