Final Fantasy XIII (PlayStation 3)

Final Fantasy XIII review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 19, 2010

Is it good? That's what everyone has been asking in tremulous voices when the subject of Square Enix's most expensive addition to the Final Fantasy line up comes up.

Myst (PC)

Myst review (PC)

Reviewed on March 17, 2010

Today I found an old shoebox in my closet. When I opened it, it revealed a stack of papers, all of them littered with scribbled notes in pencil and quick sketches of strange artifacts, maps, and charts. I began to leaf through, intrigued by the unfamiliar handwriting, until I came to a drawing of an island. Underneath it was scrawled a single word: Myst.

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere (PlayStation)

Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 16, 2010

The one thing Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere can flaunt over its two PlayStation brethren is how diverse some of its missions are. One such early mission involves an automated plane (looks more like a blimp, but whatever) carrying deadly gas, and it's programmed to crash into a city. Destroying it would do more harm than good, so you're left with having to blow up all the structures in its path, ensuring it will land safely in the river. I'd question how they knew it was going to land in the...

Ultima (Apple II)

Ultima review (APP2)

Reviewed on March 15, 2010

Origin did the right thing releasing an improved version of Ultima I. The original, with less entertaining graphics and horrid controls, is tougher to find on the net. It's best to enjoy the chubby townsmen bouncing around bushes bigger than they are and ignore the silly plot: build a time machine to knock off the wizard Mondain before he can craft a powerful evil gem. Then, U1 is straightforward kill-the-big-wizard fun.

I'm a bit jealous it wasn't me who didn't listen, but hey, it's a great free game. Well, not quite. I've enjoyed donating to it for a while.

2010: The Graphic Action Game (Colecovision)

2010: The Graphic Action Game review (CVN)

Reviewed on March 11, 2010

Even by the humble standards of 1984, 2010: The Graphic Action Game is light on action, none of it particularly graphic, unless you consider circuit board stills especially rousing or obscene. Worse, the misnomer does not end there. If you were to create a game based on the film 2010: The Year We Made Contact audiences today might suppose you dim, but in the early 1980s the sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey was anticipated enough to get a Colecovision project bearing its nam...

Ace Combat 2 (PlayStation)

Ace Combat 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 09, 2010

Sequels always have the daunting task of besting their predecessors. If the follow-ups don't match or go beyond their quality, they could potentially destroy the series, or put it into stasis for a few years. Ace Combat 2 was in a situation where it couldn't just match Air Combat and expect gamers to accept it; the game was way too simple and short, and while it had some nice dogfighting action (on the hard setting, at least), there wasn't enough of it to warrant multiple playthroughs. I'...

Heavy Rain (PlayStation 3)

Heavy Rain review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 04, 2010

Since Heavy Rain’s release it has received numerous accolades from reviewers. Yet still I encounter gamers who are wary of the title. Some of this wariness no doubt comes from the calamity that was Quantic Dream’s last release, Indigo Prophecy, which had the unfortunate distinction of being a sloppy and unfinished product. Others came away from Heavy Rain’s demo unable to deal with its admittedly odd system of movement, claiming that the controls would surely ruin the ent...

Air Combat (PlayStation)

Air Combat review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2010

There's really nothing significant that sticks out about Air Combat, the console debut of the Ace Combat series. You just go from one mission to another, completing simple tasks that involve shooting down enemy planes or ground targets, while piloting various planes with terrible paint jobs (purple and red?!). Some of the missions are shockingly easy, too, once you realize you can ignore the enemy and fly straight towards the targets that need to be destroyed. Thanks to this, certain miss...

Final Fantasy V (SNES)

Final Fantasy V review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 01, 2010

Among the many Final Fantasies, “Final Fantasy V” is reported to be the favorite of the series godfather, Hironobu Sakaguchi. This would surprise a lot of us Western gamers, who largely favor the sixth and seventh games. Video role-playing fans on this side of the cultural hemisphere tend to judge these games by their “story”, which is probably why a lot of people tend to dismiss the once mysterious and out of reach FFV. When a lot of American gamers finally got the chance to play the “Lost Fina...

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (Wii)

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle review (WII)

Reviewed on March 01, 2010

Travis Touchdown could have gone out like a punk, but punks don't give up so easily, especially not without a fight! Certainly no one was expecting a sophomore effort from crazy game designer / frontman Suda 51 and his self-proclaimed 'video game band'. With a string of commercial flops to its credit, it seemed No More Heroes was destined to become no more than another cult classic for Grasshopper Manufacture(GhM). It would have been a shame though, since it is Suda 51's most acces...

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars (Wii)

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars review (WII)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

Capcom has always kind of been the premier name in fighting games thanks to Street Fighter, but I've never thought that was their biggest strength. There are plenty of other games, each with their own merits that make them debatably better or worse. Capcom's real strength instead lies in the one niche of the genre that they have almost completely cornered, the team fighter.

Plants vs. Zombies (PC)

Plants vs. Zombies review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

The basics are fairly straightforward. Given a scant number of slots with which to load as many fruits and vegetables as you’ve collected to that point, you must strategically select which plants will counter the various kinds of zombies invading your lawn. However, sowing seeds requires sunlight, which can only be obtained periodically during daytime stages or through sun-producing plants.

Dark Heart of Uukrul (PC)

Dark Heart of Uukrul review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2010

The title villain in Dark Heart of Uukrul, doesn't just dabble in near-immortality and nasty magic. He's crushed the underground city of Eriosthe beneath his will, eradicating hackneyed old hinty taverns so you must rely on his oblique concern-trolling hints. He's scattered eight stone pieces of his heart through the city to gain immortailty. The good news? You only need to find six, and a hammer, to challenge and defeat him. The bad? There's a reason you're given two passes. That, plus s...

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul (PC)

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul review (PC)

Reviewed on February 27, 2010

Savage 2: A Tortured Soul is a game that defies, complicates, and undermines the process of game categorization altogether. It belongs to a hybrid genre that can tentatively be called Competitive Real-Time Strategy Role-Playing Action, a genre with only three games, one of which is its ultimately superior predecessor.

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans (DS)

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans review (DS)

Reviewed on February 25, 2010

Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans is a funny game - at a time when Toei Animation has begun broadcasting Dragon Ball Kai, a remastered version of Dragon Ball Z with the number of episodes cut down from 29 to approximately 100, Attack of the Saiyans actually increases the amount of storyline proper. Stretching from the end of the 23rd Tenkaichi Budokai (World Martial Arts Tournament) from the Dragon Ball series up to the climatic Goku vs. Vegeta fight in the titular Saiyan...

Xenophobe (Arcade)

Xenophobe review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 25, 2010

In 1987 Bally Midway engineered Xenophobe, a one-to-three person alien extermination effort with a twist.  While simultaneous cooperative play has roots far deeper in gaming history, perhaps never before had a developer so intuitively envisioned the future of multiplayer.   Xenophobe divides a single arcade monitor into three strips of screen, each player entitled his own.  Each strip initially displays a chamber of an extraterrestrially overrun environment, all of the settings sli...

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (Xbox 360)

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom review (X360)

Reviewed on February 24, 2010

The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has plenty of personality. The black-and-white, grainy silent movie-look, the playful rhyming blurbs before each puzzle, and the eponymous protagonist who has a mighty obsession with pie--all of this combines well to create a charmingly distinct title, not just on the Xbox Live Arcade marketplace but on all platforms. It is more than that, though; it is also a puzzle game with some rather unique mechanics.

Chime (Xbox 360)

Chime review (X360)

Reviewed on February 18, 2010

Charity and video games might seem like an unusual combination, but it's one that works if Chime is anything to go by: no less than 60% of the five pound/400 point charge goes to various charities around the world. But don't be fooled into thinking this is a forgettable experiment to bring goodwill and gaming together.
