Saira review (PC)

Reviewed on October 03, 2010

Nifflas makes a very specific kind of game. You can generally pick them out at a glance, it's the kind of game you can sum up in a single sentence.

Kaizou Chounin Shubibinman 3: Ikai no Princess (Turbografx-CD)

Kaizou Chounin Shubibinman 3: Ikai no Princess review (TGCD)

Reviewed on October 03, 2010

It's just another day in modern Tokyo. A cute schoolgirl (or schoolboy, if you're so inclined to choose) is walking down a metallic pathway, when suddenly, robotic ape/lizard hybrids leap from nowhere, only to be slashed in twain with your sword that leaves a shower of sparkles in its wake. Reinforcements come in from all sides as you continue to press your way to the right. A large humanoid robot attacks, its lanky limbs forcing you to keep your distance. You hold your attack button, and after ...

Robot Odyssey (Apple II)

Robot Odyssey review (APP2)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

People made good money off long multiple choice tests disguised as educational software back in the Apple II's heyday. It took a while for kids to get over playing a computer to realize it was just a quiz. Some games went beyond. Oregon Trail taught the dangers of fording a twelve-foot river and the wisdom of resting if you have dysentery. Number Munchers helped speed up your mental arithmetic. I found Type Attack, a Space Invaders clone that taught the QWERTY keyboard, more useful than e...

Crime Crackers (PlayStation)

Crime Crackers review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

If there is one thing the classic FPS title Doom did not need it was a bunch of numbers, but evidently someone in Japan thought differently. Import-only PlayStation launch title Crime Crackers is essentially a ‘Doom RPG’ full of first-person shooting, mazes, keys, and a bunch of stats. It sounds like a mildly interesting combination except it’s been ruined by poor level design and gimped shooting mechanics.

Katamari Forever (PlayStation 3)

Katamari Forever review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 02, 2010

One day, the King of the Universe is out in the Nebulae playing with his son, the Prince. The Prince can jump pretty far, but he's no match for the King just yet. In fact, the King can jump as high as he likes, and he does, just to show the Prince how it's done - but disaster strikes! He's hit in the head by a meteor.

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse (PC)

Al-Qadim: The Genie's Curse review (PC)

Reviewed on October 01, 2010

In an age long lost, the standard appearance of a main character vastly differed then that of today. Today, we have protaganists that look more like they belong in a gothic fashion magazine then as a serious combatant, complete with girly long-haired and sunbed tans. But in 1994 the exact opposite applied: manly men with bronze-skinned bodies and muscles that would make Arnold in his prime weep, wearing naught more than a turban and loose-fitting silk trousers.

The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy (NES)

The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy review (NES)

Reviewed on October 01, 2010

There's nothing about a Flintstones platformer that sounds remotely entertaining. One might imagine it boring, plagued by stiff or unresponsive controls, or even not true enough to the source material. However, Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino and Hoppy is actually a decent game. The fact that the developers played it safe and made an everyday platformer actually worked out for them. Could you see them trying to go against the grain and coming up with something like Uncanny X-Men

Kick Master (NES)

Kick Master review (NES)

Reviewed on September 30, 2010

The kingdom of Lowrel has been decimated by the forces of the wizard Belzed. Regicide and kidnapping are among the crimes committed, and the only remaining member of the royal family is the princess. Belzed has taken her to his tower, leaving the last two men alive in the kingdom, Macren and his brother Thonolan. Macren is killed on the way over, leaving the martial arts expert Thonolan to continue the quest.

Video Pinball (Atari 2600)

Video Pinball review (A2600)

Reviewed on September 29, 2010

Anyone could dismiss this game, saying it was made redundant by the plethora of pinball simulators out there. One could easily download one for PC and simply avoid Video Pinball all together. They would never know what they're truly missing: a pinball game with loving Atari 2600 sensibilities. It's a feeling all of its own. It gives you something you can't have by playing an actual pinball machine or other simulators. It wasn't meant to perfectly replicate pinball, but take the rules and ap...

Tagin' Dragon (NES)

Tagin' Dragon review (NES)

Reviewed on September 28, 2010

If you walked up to a ramshackle grocery store with a few broken windows, pealing and mismatched paint, and a sign outside that read, “OPIN FOR BIZNISS,” would you go inside and start shopping? Likewise, if you popped a game into your NES and the first screen you saw was that of a poorly designed, color-changing dragon that looked like it strayed from a low budget lollipop commercial and a title that read “Tagin' Dragon,” would you play? No, I didn't misspell that. The actual title screen say...

The Lurking Horror (Apple II)

The Lurking Horror review (APP2)

Reviewed on September 27, 2010

Infocom released more than thirty Interactive Fiction titles in their time, setting the standard for sophisticated text adventure game parsers in the process, but only one of these games declared itself as belonging to the horror genre. That one was 1987's The Lurking Horror (TLH). In this adventure you assume the role of a student at the fictional GUE Tech whose essay on the topic of 'Modern analogues of Xenophon's Anabasis' is due tomorrow. The game begins with you sweating away at your essay ...

Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)

Halo: Reach review (X360)

Reviewed on September 27, 2010

Though, it's not all a complete mess; if you're going on playlists that contain smaller, confined maps, you have a better chance of having a good time. The spawns aren't as horrific, and match selections, like Infection and Grifball, are better suited to those locations.

Breath of Fire III (PlayStation)

Breath of Fire III review (PSX)

Reviewed on September 25, 2010

This isn't the kind of game akin to an A-class film, but it's not direct-to-video dreck either. This is like the kind of decent film you might see on a rainy Sunday afternoon, one that's entertaining enough to watch, but not enough to rave over. It's modest and fun, but it thinks it's more. It thinks it's out of this world. It just isn't.

WWE Smackdown! Shut Your Mouth review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 10, 2010

The early 2000’s were a time of change for the mainstream professional wrestling business, with the World Wrestling Federation dissolving its main competition, and then getting into a tussle of a legal mould with the World Wildlife Fund, in which the sports entertainment mega power would come out on the losing side.

Metroid: Other M review (WII)

Reviewed on September 07, 2010

It’s not easy being Samus Aran. She’s the most badass bounty hunter in the galaxy…but that’s all anyone cares about. Everyone knows about her insanely powerful weapons, legendary battles, and the mass destruction she’ll inevitably trigger. But they all forget something far more important: there’s a person hiding beneath those layers of impenetrable armor and advanced technology. Not just the cold and calculating killer, but an introspective, flawed, and vulnerable individual. Such things don’t m...

Dead Space (Xbox 360)

Dead Space review (X360)

Reviewed on September 06, 2010

Dead Space does not start out slow, as in cold blood slowly trickling down the hull-plating in low gravity. But simply slow. In fact, nothing happens. During the introduction, the main character sits completely still. Presently the ship you're on spins slightly dramatically out of control because of a malfunctioning autopilot, while a video of our hero's apparently desperately dying wife is playing in the background, and as a small mutiny is shaping up between the ensign and the captain - and ou...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days review (PS3)

Reviewed on September 06, 2010

Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days seems to get it. It is not a game that opens with a slow burn. It does not begin with a long, drawn-out cutscene. It does not begin with a slow-paced tutorial level that reminds you, the player, in the year 2010, that holding down the L1 button aims your gun while the R1 button fires it.
