Katamari Forever (PlayStation 3)

Katamari Forever review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 03, 2009

The King of All Cosmos has amnesia. Despite all his power, getting hit by a passing meteor was enough to take him down. Now that he’s out of the picture, there’s no one left to manage the Cosmos. You’d think the Prince and the rest of the royal family would be able to step up, but it’s kind of hard to replace one of the most flamboyant and over-the-top characters in recent memory. Instead, they create the RoboKing, a giant mecha capable of doing everything the King could do…without the style, of...

Space Channel 5: Special Edition (PlayStation 2)

Space Channel 5: Special Edition review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 02, 2009

Visually and musically, Space Channel 5 for the Dreamcast was an experience. However, as a rhythmic video game, it fell flat on its face. I'm not talking about the Simon Says gameplay, where you copy the dance moves your opponent does, no, I'm talking about actually trying to play the game. Unlike many rhythm games that give you on-screen indicators, telling you when to press certain buttons, SC5 rarely does that. You're left with having to time when to press specific buttons based entirely on w...

The Orange Box (Xbox 360)

The Orange Box review (X360)

Reviewed on October 01, 2009

Every home lining the barren coast of City 17 tells a different story, and none of them end well. The first is barricaded from the inside, presumably thanks to the ruthless Combine if we can rule out social anxiety disorder. Too bad for its residents that their foes thought to cram the original Half-Life's headcrabs into artillery shells and use them as biological weapons. Turning pesky naysayers into braindead drones with gaping maws where their chests should be, that'll learn 'em. Muffl...

Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Lightsaber Duels review (WII)

Reviewed on October 01, 2009

When the Nintendo Wii first launched in 2006, conversations sparked among gamers of what titles could be made using the system’s groundbreaking gyroscopic technology, and it seemed that almost all of these exchanges came to the same conclusion – they have to make a lightsaber game.

Wacky Races (NES)

Wacky Races review (NES)

Reviewed on September 22, 2009

“Wacky Races” for the Nintendo is a hidden gem of a platformer. The only reason it ever crossed my mind to play it was because I was browsing an old issue of Nintendo Power, one that had “Darkwing Duck” as its cover story. One of the other features was a pretty extensive overview of, you guessed it, this game. The graphics in the screenshot were very clean and colorful; I thought I’d like this game, and my hunch was correct.

Der Langrisser review (SNES)

Reviewed on September 21, 2009

I had quite a dream the other day. In it, I went to my local retailer and excitedly bought a copy of "Shining Force, Expanded Edition". However, after I arrived home and opened the box, I was quite disappointed to find out that what actually was inside the box was not the game I bought, but "Final Fantasy 3, Director's Cut: Play as Kefka" instead. I couldn't play the game I actually wanted to play, but still I had some fun after turning on the special "Castle Shikigami 2" mo...

Bureaucracy (Apple II)

Bureaucracy review (APP2)

Reviewed on September 18, 2009

Douglas Adams's name is not featured prominently in the packaging for Infocom's text adventure, Bureaucracy. He got distracted from it by the Dirk Gently books, and eventually the game got written by committee. The result was a game that showed the downside of corporate muddling the wrong way--an extended whine where puzzles rely too heavily on the defeatist "whatever can go wrong, will" maxim. It features the sort of jokes you laugh at if they are buffers for more sophisticated jo...

Mega Bomberman (Genesis)

Mega Bomberman review (GEN)

Reviewed on September 17, 2009

No game has portrayed bombs in a more novel fashion than Hudson’s Bomberman series. The balls on dynamite haven’t done any favours to my mental perception of a bomb, and they certainly don’t just send a blast in a four directions. The games have hardly been famous for epic saga’s; the original NES version featured Bomberman growing tired of making bombs in a factory and attempts to become human. This time the evil forces of Bagular have invaded and destroyed the five coins that unify the ...

Scribblenauts review (DS)

Reviewed on September 14, 2009

There’s a cat stuck on the roof. It’s been there for hours, yowling its lungs out. It’s almost as annoying as its owner, a young girl who’s too lazy to get it herself. That’s why Maxwell is here; he‘s a problem solver, and it‘s your job to supply him with whatever he needs. It’s not really a question of if you’ll get little thing down, but how. You could always get a ladder and end it quickly. Perhaps you could tempt it down with some catnip. Or a mouse, for that matter. They’re obvious, ...

Final Fantasy V Advance (Game Boy Advance)

Final Fantasy V Advance review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 13, 2009

You might say it's the black-sheep of the SNES Final Fantasy games; sandwiched between two notably story-driven entries, Final Fantasy V doesn't have a memorable lead akin to Cecil of IV or Terra of VI. Furthermore, you'll accumulate only four constant party members, a paltry figure compared to the twelve and fourteen of the aforementioned games. Modest in comparison, but it doesn't stifle this whimsical tale of world-saving adventuring.

Defense Grid: The Awakening review (X360)

Reviewed on September 11, 2009

OPENING SHOT: This is a tower defense game for Xbox Live Arcade where aliens have come back to the planet and you fight them off alongside the computer AI that waxes romantic about...raspberries. Yes, raspberries. Apparently the AI loves him some raspberries, and will tell you all about it as the game progresses. Putting that aside for the moment, the computer AI has 24 "cores" which it relies on to stay powered up. You place different types of turrets in the way of the aliens to take them ...

Mortal Kombat (Arcade)

Mortal Kombat review (ARC)

Reviewed on September 11, 2009

“Mortal Kombat” is without a doubt the coolest fighting game ever. It isn’t necessarily the best; that honor might rightfully be held by some Japanese title like “Street Fighter II” or “Garou: Mark of the Wolf.” But none of those games are as cool as MK. When push comes to shove (or fatality) Kombat has the most colorful of fighting game mythologies. Nothing else in the genre can match the sheer characters, the outrageous settings—the ludicrous plot twists! I’ve lost count of how many times the ...

A Mind Forever Voyaging (Apple II)

A Mind Forever Voyaging review (APP2)

Reviewed on September 11, 2009

I don't believe A Mind Forever Voyaging is more profound than the emotionally apolitical Trinity or even the wildly clever Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but it's another successful text-adventure experiment from Infocom. It features you as PRISM aka Perry Simm, a computer built to simulate human experience in the future. It is another example of an Infocom game doing what a book would like to do but cannot, and here it creates an interactive dystopia with social comment...

System Shock 2 (PC)

System Shock 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on September 10, 2009

There’s an interesting theory that I learned about in sociology called «flock theory». Basically, if a high enough number of people report to an individual that Pearl Harbour is a masterpiece of cinematic history, even the most sane of individuals will eventually condemn common sense and hail Michael Bay as the new Orson Welles.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon review (GBA)

Reviewed on September 10, 2009

You’re walking through a dark hallway. The antiquated stones look grim, its damp, and you’ve only got a whip at hand. The only form of light is from the small candles and the large moon gleaming outside, and there’s bats everywhere. Take a few steps and the pillars begin to animate. A few more and a mummy or skeleton will as well, and at the end of the corridor it turns out you can only go up. The castle master Count Dracula, has been unsealed by Camilla, and yourself, Morris (a veteran Vampire ...

Crazy Taxi (Dreamcast)

Crazy Taxi review (DC)

Reviewed on September 09, 2009

I still remember when this game first appeared at the arcade I used to go to, and just watch people play it. They understood the concept, where they had to pick up customers and drop them off at their destinations before time ran out, which, considering the game's title had the word Taxi in it, wasn't hard to grasp. However, when the game finally started, I would watch in amazement as they just drove causally while picking up customers and dropping them off. Obviously, they didn't last long, but...
