Alien Syndrome (Arcade)

Alien Syndrome review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2011

When we think about Sega of the 80s, we remember such classics like Space Harrier, Shinobi, OutRun, Phantasy Star, and After Burner; games that helped turn the company into a... temporary powerhouse. However, Sega did release a ton more games during that era, a disturbing amount, at times, and because of that, nearly all of them have been forgotten by the general gaming public. It's only when these games appear in a compilation, or when specific characters make cameos, that people go, "Hey! I re...

Fallout: New Vegas (Xbox 360)

Fallout: New Vegas review (X360)

Reviewed on January 16, 2011

Its well past midnight and I cannot sleep. My conscience weighs heavily on me for what I have done. I have tried to prevent bloodshed, but in the end I have killed so many. I have tried to stand up to injustice, but in the end I have buckled under the weight of the corrupt and powerful. I have let down friends so I could avoid making enemies.

WWF: Betrayal (Game Boy Color)

WWF: Betrayal review (GBC)

Reviewed on January 16, 2011

Hunter trots backstage and discovers that his wife Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley has been taken by The Rock and co. Vince McMahon catches up with him, tells him that if he can rescue Stephanie, then he can have a title shot. Take all of those illogical plots from NES games and combine them with professional wrestling and this is what you get. It's almost ridiculous enough to be an actual WWE storyline, one written by a total mark.

The Magic of Scheherazade (NES)

The Magic of Scheherazade review (NES)

Reviewed on January 14, 2011

Leap off that steed and cast away that shining armor. It's time to take the hot sands, to don a turban and wield a scimitar with deadly grace. Leave behind those fantasies that have been final for fourteen games or those quests of the dragon kind, and delve into The Magic of Scheherazade. It's a wonderful RPG that maintains the sword and sorcery feel, yet changes the setting all together. It's not set in a world like medieval times, but more akin to Arabian Nights. With much t...

Jim Henson's Muppet Adventure No. 1: Chaos at the Carnival (Commodore 64)

Jim Henson's Muppet Adventure No. 1: Chaos at the Carnival review (C64)

Reviewed on January 10, 2011

If you're a seeker of esoterica or a man with a penchant for playing poorly made license titles, then Jim Henson's Muppet Adventure: Chaos at the Carnival is just the ticket. It's the crme de la crme of awful. Most wouldn't expect much of a Muppet game, maybe mediocrity at best, but I'm sure few would expect to be at the very bottom of the gaming totem pole. It's a license title with hardly any elements that attach it to its source material, loaded with just about every gaming flaw y...

Domino Rally (Wii)

Domino Rally review (WII)

Reviewed on January 09, 2011

You know those Japanese games with stupid-sounding gimmicks that rarely get released outside their native country, in fear of not selling well? Domino Rally is one such game that made it outside. Judging by the name, you're thinking this is just some domino... rally game. And you'd be sorta right. Domino Rally is about a man, or thing... this superhero, let's say, called Minon. He, or it, wears a yellow track suit, a face mask, and electronic visor with the words "Go! Go!" on it, l...

VVVVVV (PC)

VVVVVV review (PC)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

Although not an unusual game in any ways, VVVVVV is the exact opposite of our average perception of a game today. First of all it is called VVVVVV, which is pretty much the ideal title to name a game if youre an indie developer looking to break into the gaming market. Its graphics are straight from the Commodore 64 era, dialogue is minimal, difficulty is intense, can be played with only three buttons, and features only one simple to understand gameplay element.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PlayStation 2)

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

Think back to a normal day in high school. Specifically, remember the routine. Every day, you wake up, you go to class, eat lunch, take tests, talk to friends, and do the same thing you've done a thousand times in real life. Yet through some trickery, it's actually a great game that excels in taking the mundane and making it exciting.

Beat Hazard (PC)

Beat Hazard review (PC)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

A quick glance in my iTunes library reveals that I have 4968 songs stored in my computer, for a combined total of approximately 14.2 days of music. This means, in theory, that my copy of Beat Hazard contains 4968 unique levels for a combined total of approximately 14.2 days of play time.

Elemix! (Game Boy Advance)

Elemix! review (GBA)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

Elemix! is a Japanese import action RPG that some might compare to a 2D Zelda game. It has a colourful graphics style slightly reminiscent of a GBA Zelda, a top-down viewpoint, and a health indicator in the form of hearts on the top left of the screen. But the one area Elemix! excels in is its remarkably simple pick-up-and-play approach, and this is despite the language barrier. The game is a series of nine short self-contained stages. There isn't an overworld ...

Star Wars: Battlefront II review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

With as many Star Wars games as there are on the market, it might be hard to imagine that any of them stand out. Knights of the Old Republic managed to do this with its famed openness and attention to morality, but even that title told its story through the eyes of the Jedi. Star Wars: Battlefront II breaks from the usual Jedi perspective, preferring instead to show the rise of the Empire from standpoint of a veteran clone in the 501st Legion, a division so elite that it bec...

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (DS)

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles review (DS)

Reviewed on January 08, 2011

Oh, boy. Jake Hunter wants so bad to be a cool film noir private eye. He's got the crappy one-man agency, the staff of exactly one perky secretary always bringing coffee, the no-nonsense attitude, the penchant for smoking (Marlboros. Hes very clear on that. Did Marlboro fund this game? I had to think about the case, so I lit up a smooth, relaxing, non-filtered Marlboro. Mm, yeah, sweet.). All he needs is a trenchcoat/fedora combo and a Max Payne-level of similes and hed be good to go.

Condemned 2: Bloodshot (PlayStation 3)

Condemned 2: Bloodshot review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 07, 2011

Im the type of person who easily forgives flaws. So long as a game has one incredible, striking element I can ignore shoddy camera angles, loose controls or bad graphics. Its a requirement that shifts depending on which genre Im playing. For survival horror, it simply has to do one thing: terrify me. Do that, and Im willing to dismiss any mechanical issues you may have.

ICO (PlayStation 2)

ICO review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 07, 2011

The reason ICO is so difficult to capture in a review is because it is an experience that occurs in the negative spaces that its narrative leaves behind. From the moment you start ICO, you will be struck by how sparse it is. All the game gives players at the beginning is a situation: a young boy with horns is being placed inside a castle, alone.

New Play Control! Pikmin review (WII)

Reviewed on January 06, 2011

Captain Olimar, a tiny space alien, is a manipulative bastard. Upon crash landing on a strange planet, Olimar discovers the Pikmin little plant creatures that are so brainless they would march to their deaths if Olimar forced them to. And sometimes Olimar does. He has only thirty days to find all the pieces of his ruined space ship, and he needs the help of the Pikmin to carry these pieces, and if some Pikmin need to die to achieve this... then so be it.

Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light review (DS)

Reviewed on January 05, 2011

Rumors spread that this was going to be a reboot of the original 1987 Final Fantasy for the NES because of its western title and Square Enix's insistence that it would be a "throw back" to the days of 8-bit role playing games. Others thought it would be a remake of the 1991 Gameboy title "Final Fantasy Adventure" because of its Japanese subtitle "Final Fantasy Gaiden". Others still believed it would be a rehashing of another Gameboy title, "Final Fantasy Legend". All these rumors proved to be fa...

Archon review (NES)

Reviewed on January 05, 2011

Conquest! That supreme notion that you have overcome your opponents, that the ground you walk on is now yours, and that all your opponents can do is cry and bleed. Ha-ha, you might laugh. My knights have cut your goblins to ribbons. My unicorns now frolic in the fields littered with the body parts of your manitcores. This is war, this is Archon. It's a strategy game that wins for being simple and addictive, despite being too easy.
