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...

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.

.hack Part 1: Infection review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 04, 2010

Many years ago, I watched an anime called .Hack//Sign and absolutely fell in love with it. It told the tale of a young boy trapped inside the virtual reality MMORPG, The World, and how he copes with his existence. As other players heard of and attempted to unravel the mystery behind his condition, they discovered a series of potentially fatal anomalies involving the game’s own mythology. It was the sheer complexity of that mythology and the mystery behind it that drew me in so thor...

Ivy the Kiwi? (Wii)

Ivy the Kiwi? review (WII)

Reviewed on August 31, 2010

NO, this game has absolutely no connections with Kiwi Kraze (The New Zealand Story), other than they both use the word Kiwi in their titles. Ivy the Kiwi? has much more in common with Lemmings and Mario & Wario, where you are an invisible force that must guide a fast little bird through various mazes in a quest to find her mother. You aide the newborn by creating vines that'll help her climb over walls, or use them like shields against such dastardly foes as rats and water drops. Y...

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days review (X360)

Reviewed on August 23, 2010

I didn't think the first Kane & Lynch title, Dead Men, was a terrible game, but it did do a few things wrong that made it only an above-average product. The Campaign mode, for example, while it took gamers on a tour through various locations around the globe, was nothing more than a very basic hide-and-go-shoot action fest. Sure, there were a bunch of police, thugs, and mercenaries on screen trying to kill you, but it mostly felt subdued, especially since you had four or five AI buddies backing ...

River City Ransom review (NES)

Reviewed on August 20, 2010

In the military, it’s a type of inspection you don’t want to fail. In competition, it means you’re playing without advantages normally at your disposal. With “of the law”, it is the unbearable barb of the headline writer after a police force lifts its height restriction.

Kingdom Hearts II (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts II review (PS2)

Reviewed on August 20, 2010

The first Kingdom Hearts brilliantly blended the worlds of Disney and Final Fantasy in a refreshing and surprisingly unique tale. There, we followed Sora, the unsuspecting Keyblade Master who was ripped from his peaceful island home and separated from childhood friends Riku and Kairi. We watched as he met new companions and ventured through Disney-themed worlds, attempting to seal them from impending darkness. We helped him battle the Heartless, physical manifestations of evil, as ...
