Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (PlayStation 2)

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 08, 2010

Regarding Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty I have a dilemma. It’s not a bad game by any means, but it just doesn’t have the same flair its predecessor had. It’s true that some features, like stealth and basic combat, are remarkably improved. However, its storytelling has gone completely in the wrong direction.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (NES)

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2010

Simon Belmont is dying. The once great champion of the Belmont family- the man who killed Dracula and saved the world - is coming to a cruel and painful demise. He can barely hold his legendary whip anymore. Not just because he’s grown weak, but because his body can’t handle the movements. His old wounds are still aching. His muscles are slowly rotting off his bones. His skin has become pale, lifeless. It’s not old age; it’s only been seven years since the first game. It’s something far worse: D...

Castlevania (NES)

Castlevania review (NES)

Reviewed on July 08, 2010

Dracula is alive. Well, as much as a vampire can be. He’s spent at least a century rotting inside of a coffin, but that doesn’t stop him from getting back into the swing of things. Now that he’s been resurrected, he can continue with his favorite pastimes. Ruling over his vast, magical estate of Castlevania. Restoring the decrepit ruins of his home. Tending to his menagerie of mythical, demonic creatures. Getting in touch with old friends, regardless if they’re still living. Spreading his evil ...

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor (Wii)

Sin & Punishment: Star Successor review (WII)

Reviewed on July 08, 2010

They never should have sent Isa Jo. He was just a rookie. A child, compared to the other soldiers. But that wasn’t the problem; he could’ve handled the mission. The objective was simple: destroy the enemy recon unit from the other dimension. That’s all. Isa had both the weapons and combat skills to get the job done. As the son of the protagonists of the original Sin and Punishment, he was also far stronger than a regular human. He could have killed his target on sight…but he didn’t. He wa...

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy review (PS2)

In my opinion, the whole history of the human race has been one long succession of conspiracies. To deceive ourselves , we call the successful conspiracies “governments.”

Twisted Metal: Head On - Extra Twisted Edition (PlayStation 2)

Twisted Metal: Head On - Extra Twisted Edition review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 07, 2010

I'm going to start off this review by saying that Twisted Metal: Head On is not a bad game. The reason I believe it belongs in the bargain bin is because it simply does not have enough substance to be worth the price of a full console game. Maybe this is because it has been ported over from a PSP game, and while there have been some additions; it still falls short of what should be a full release. Fans of Twisted Metal have wanted another console release, and this port of a PSP game is what they...

Super Mario Galaxy 2 review (WII)

Reviewed on July 07, 2010

I’ll be honest: I don’t like Mario. Never have. I believed the thought of a chubby super-powered plumber who jumped on the heads of his enemies was silly. And my distaste was marred even further by the fact that—barring a few exceptions—the structure never changed. Bowser was always the antagonist, Peach was always in peril and it was up to Mario to save her.

Myst (PSP)

Myst review (PSP)

Reviewed on July 07, 2010

This is a bad port. It’s not broken, like Syberia DS, or a drastic departure from the original, like Deus Ex: The Conspiracy. It is pointless, though. Helplessly pointless. I can’t figure out the rationale behind releasing it. Midway Games has taken an ancient game, rereleased it in the wrong aspect ratio on a tinier screen, and shoved in a level from the last full remake of the game... a remake wh...

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)

Heavy Rain review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 06, 2010

It was destined for debate the moment it hit shelves—or perhaps even prior. A game that isn’t a game at all, described by its own designers as “an interactive drama” where the player takes complete control, even over the most menial of tasks like drinking orange juice or shaving. Some may see it as brilliant, others may call it foolish but I don’t think any can argue that Heavy Rain was one of a kind.

Mega Man Zero 2 (Game Boy Advance)

Mega Man Zero 2 review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 06, 2010

The first stage of “Mega Man Zero 2” is one of the best possible notes a game could start on. Our hero, garbed in a poncho, fatigued from the battles he’s fought since the prior installment, limps his way through a canyon in the midst of a sandstorm. The storm dies down, and a battalion of Neo Arcadian foot soldiers flank Zero from behind. He tosses the poncho aside, and a techno/Western theme music kicks in. The menu screen from the previous game is withered, obscuring and disabling options tha...

Puzzle Quest 2 (Xbox 360)

Puzzle Quest 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on July 04, 2010

Puzzle Quest brought together two genres – puzzle and RPG – and made them work so well that we all asked “why hasn’t this been done before?” Three years and a poorly received spin-off (Puzzle Quest: Galactrix) later and the big question is whether or not the formula holds up. It does, but rather than refine what the original offered and streamline the experience, Puzzle Quest 2’s real improvement is in its presentation (which ironically creates some new problems).

Dante's Inferno (PlayStation 3)

Dante's Inferno review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 03, 2010

So here’s what happened. Someone at EA noticed that the God of War games are incredibly successful, both commercially and critically. They noticed that those games are rife with excessive gore and nudity, that they unfold in busy set pieces accompanied by shrieking choirs and wailing strings on the soundtrack, and that they’re chock full of very angry men making very loud exclamations. Let’s do that, they said. People seem to like that.

"(...)a direct link to a TV channel that will buy and broadcast the most entertaining massacres that happen around you. On a signpost on the way to the space-sector you can read: "No nuclear weapon tests between 08.00 and 16.00". It is probably too much to ask for".

Super Mario 64 review (N64)

Reviewed on July 02, 2010

A long time ago, in a far away kingdom filled with mushroom hill tops, green pipes, and coins as far as the eye can see, there was a man named Mario. This plumber, sporting a killer mustache, overalls, and a red hat, time and time again saved the Mushroom Kingdom from the diabolical Bowser, a towering turtle that has a huge obsession with kidnapping a princess. Mario had plenty of help during these adventures, but that didn't seem to matter to him, since he was so intent on hogging all the glory...

Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn)

Panzer Dragoon Saga review (SAT)

Reviewed on July 02, 2010

I don’t know the name of this world, but it’s a bleak, somber wasteland hoping to get by on scraps left behind by a dead people. An advanced civilization known as The Ancients originally spanned the globe until it was destroyed by an unknown cataclysm years ago. Sparse nomadic tribes of humans band together in order to fend off vicious mutants that roam the lifeless hillsides and dead seas. An emerging civilization – The Empire – grows stronger by salvaging The Ancients’ God-like technology.

Final Fantasy XIII (PlayStation 3)

Final Fantasy XIII review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 01, 2010

Square-Enix would love to create masterpieces of storytelling, if only the player and the whole gameplay aspect would stop getting in the way, which is why they are taking such drastic steps to phase them out. Final Fantasy XIII isn’t a roleplaying game, and perhaps calling it a game is stretching the definition too far.

Split/Second (PlayStation 3)

Split/Second review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 01, 2010

Split/Second is what I would call a beautiful tragedy. It starts out memorable, and initially blew me away—as I imagine it did with so many others. With its tight controls, a wide array of vehicles and expansive, twisting tracks, it has a lot of things hard-core racing fans seek. It didn’t make the mistake most do of simply mirroring aspects from popular franchises without adding anything new that will entice loyal followers to jump ship.

Beyond Good & Evil review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 30, 2010

With her trusty camera, Jade must unravel the truth behind the invasion. Her evidence, much of it horrifying, easily reaches the masses, and their protesting increases with each new article she publishes. Her investigations into tightly guarded military compounds reveal the reality behind the propaganda war between the mysterious Alpha Sections and the so-called IRIS rebels.

Mega Man Zero review (GBA)

Reviewed on June 28, 2010

My initial impression of “Mega Man Zero” when I first played it was: This game is hard as fuck! I was humiliated by the first real boss, Aztec Falcon. The claustrophobic quarters where you fight him caused me to panic. He dwarfed my little Zero character in size, and he nimbly bounded and dashed all over the place. He shot harpoons and sent surges of electricity through the ground and up the walls. To top all of this off, I had to defeat this monster before the platform we were on descended onto...

Mega Man Zero Collection (DS)

Mega Man Zero Collection review (DS)

Reviewed on June 28, 2010

“Mega Man Zero Collection” contains one of the greatest action game anthologies of recent years and perhaps all time as well. In the realm of vigorous thumb and finger muscle exercise, you can’t do better than this on a portable game system. You can hardly do better on the so-called “home” consoles either. The "Mega Man Zero" series is among the upper echelon of games that have you sprinting and bounding across wild obstacle courses while terminating drones with extreme prejudice.
