Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PlayStation)

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 03, 2009

Tony Hawk’s is probably one of the most ubiquitous franchises of the last decade. It’s appeared on every format made since ollie-ing into the PlayStation park in 1999, and when each game is designed to be built better than the last, playing this eight-year old title is like skating backwards into a time machine.

Neo Contra (PlayStation 2)

Neo Contra review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

After the dreadful Appaloosa game that had the word Contra slapped on it (C: The Contra Adventure), Shattered Soldier was a welcomed return to the series' roots. Bill Rizer reappeared as the main character, who was accompanied this time by a female cyborg, and both were thrown into side-scrolling badassery, filled with weird creatures, aliens, and high-tech Weapons of Epic Destruction (WED). When a game plops you into crazy situations, like being chased down a snowy mountain by a huge worm, figh...

inFAMOUS (PlayStation 3)

inFAMOUS review (PS3)

Reviewed on June 01, 2009

It all started with a bang. Or rather, it ended with one. Half of Empire City, gone in a fiery apocalypse. Buildings, roads, people, everything. The bomb left almost nothing behind, not even the bodies of its victims. Just the sickening stench of smoke and burned flesh. They were the lucky ones, though; they got to die quickly. The survivors were in for something much, much worse. Riots, chaos, rape, murder, the complete and utter breakdown of society as we know it. It’s been two weeks in...

Adventures in the Magic Kingdom (NES)

Adventures in the Magic Kingdom review (NES)

Reviewed on May 30, 2009

“Adventures in the Magic Kingdom” gets off to such a charming start, I started to think that maybe there was more than nostalgia to this game. I found myself strolling around an 8-bit tile map replica of the famous theme park, answering trivia questions in an effort to track down Pluto the Dog. Along the way, I noticed such familiar sites as Main Street U.S.A., the “Mark Twain” steam boat that chugs along the river surrounding the Haunted Mansion, the spinning rockets of Tommorowland, and the li...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Manhatten Project (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: The Manhatten Project review (NES)

Reviewed on May 30, 2009

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project". Say it aloud. Absorb its cover into your retina: the Triceraton, the mousers, the turtles, the army of foot soldiers, and Manhattan floating in the sky like Sonic’s Angel Island. Forget all those other wimpy beat ‘em ups with their generic thugs and their standard streets and alleys. You know what? "The Manhattan Project" has robots, stone warriors, submarines, the Technodrome, and even a UFO. Beat that, Final Cat Fight or Streets of ‘Ro...

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards (PC)

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards review (PC)

Reviewed on May 28, 2009

Leisure Suit Larry (LSL,) despite notoriety after its first release was less disgusting and offensive than its sequels, most of which overused weak riffs on material from the original game anyway. It's surely one of Sierra's very best graphic adventures, as it doesn't take itself too seriously and goes beyond just some hapless forty-year-old's quest to lose his virginity. It pokes fun at the awkwardness we all felt during our teenage years and makes Larry a poor schlemeil who can't even do the b...

Laser Blast (Atari 2600)

Laser Blast review (A2600)

Reviewed on May 28, 2009

For years, I remembered Laser Blast (LB) as the game that I should've won, but I had to go to the bathroom. LB has an appealing, amusing concept. You are a UFO, elliptical and with windows spinning around the center. You must fire down at three ground cannons. You are also, apparently, the bad guys: your lasers are red, theirs blue. If you win, a new round appears. This goes on until you get a million points. You can get 270 points per round, which can take two to five seconds. Doing the ...

Resident Evil 5 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 5 review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 28, 2009

Over the countless years I’ve been playing video games, I’ve anticipated the release of many titles. Most of them have been sequels—Shining Force II, Lunar: Eternal Blue, Bloodrayne 2. It’s a long list. But never, ever, have I anticipated a game as much as I did Resident Evil 5.

Major Minor's Majestic March (Wii)

Major Minor's Majestic March review (WII)

Reviewed on May 25, 2009

Major Minor's Majestic March has an impressive pedigree. Its developer NanaOn-Sha, or more specifically musician Masaya Matsuura and artist Rodney Alan Greenblat, helped shape the rhythm game genre with iconic 90's releases PaRappa the Rapper and Um Jammer Lammy. The games stood out because of their quirky graphics, music, and plot. There was also an inherent charm to their main characters: a dog learning to bust rhymes and a lamb struggling for her grunge-guitar dreams. ...

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Sega Master System)

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 review (SMS)

Reviewed on May 25, 2009

Back in 1992 the Mega Drive had superseded Master System for quite some time. The “made for blast-processing” Sonic the Hedgehog shifted units like hot pancakes and it’s 8-bit predecessor looked long sent into obscurity after being comfortably beaten by the inferior NES.

Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution (Wii)

Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution review (WII)

Reviewed on May 24, 2009

Just looking at the screen, it's hard to discern the supposed Revolution the Clash of Ninja series has undergone. Naruto's still rocking his bright orange jumpsuit, and all the characters sport the same cel-shaded look that favorably compares to the game's anime inspiration. About three-fourths of the roster returns unchanged from the final GameCube installment. The battle arenas remain constant, along with the manner of movement. Fighters still essentially move along a two-di...

Hard Hat Mack (Apple II)

Hard Hat Mack review (APP2)

Reviewed on May 22, 2009

Donkey Kong inspired a number of three-level looping spinoffs in the eighties, and one of the most successful ideas was Hard Hat Mack (HHM,) a cute little platformer about a construction worker with various tasks to perform. He starts off drilling cement blocks in place on the first level, gathers lunch boxes, and apparently in the afternoon he has crates to drop into some crazy machine. He's obstructed by Osha or the Vandal. Each looks different but move in exactly the same predet...

Crazy Taxi 2 review (DC)

Reviewed on May 22, 2009

Crazy Taxi Company has picked up shop and relocated to New York City. However, other than heading for the east coast and replacing the four drivers from the original, Crazy Taxi 2 does little to differentiate itself.

Sammy Lightfoot (Apple II)

Sammy Lightfoot review (APP2)

Reviewed on May 20, 2009

Sammy Lightfoot(SL) is a step down from the better-remembered Hard Hat Mack in fun, playability and fairness, but it's still the sort of interesting old-school title worth a brief spin. Sammy's this tubby orange-haired fellow who makes squip noises when he walks and boingy noises when he jumps. His hair even spins around when he dies! The game's object is just to reach the platform at the top, navigating obstacles in three scenarios. Then you start all over again with a different, ...

Touch Detective (DS)

Touch Detective review (DS)

Reviewed on May 19, 2009

First off, this game is by Atlus, so of course it’s going to offer something fresh. This game is so cutesy and fun, and it’s available portably for the Nintendo DS. The DS seems like a perfect platform for more point-and-click titles and I was really excited when I was first reading about this one, despite its mixed reviews. I was definitely not disappointed because this game is a genuinely fun experience that’s easy-going, but still retains a level of difficulty with certain puzzles.

Silent Hill: Homecoming (Xbox 360)

Silent Hill: Homecoming review (X360)

Reviewed on May 19, 2009

Another new developer takes a shot at making a Silent Hill title, Double Helix. Do they bring in the support of hardcore fans of the series, or do they disappoint? Well, I wouldn't exactly call myself a "hardcore fan" of the series, but I am a pretty big fan of it. I think that this game is one of the more playable games in the series, overall. It is definitely better than Silent Hill: The Room, although who can say that is an achievement?

Spyro: Season of Ice review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 18, 2009

After Insomniac stepped down from the Spyro series after an epic trilogy on PSone, this was the first of the series not developed by them, beginning the fall from grace from a signature franchise. Season of Ice picks up from Spyro’s last PlayStation outing, Year of the Dragon, where one of the Sorceress’s troops got a trifle bored after being one of the few Rhynoc’s that didn’t fall victim to a toast by Spyro. Failing to endure his forced discharge from service, he thus pinches her spell book to...

Call of Duty: World at War review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 17, 2009

I imagine that it's hard to be Infinity Ward. Ever since the creation of their fantastic Call of Duty series, they've had to deal with a horrific publisher in Activision, helmed by Noah Keller, the next Hiroshi Yamauchi. Their games, which take the concepts Valve made famous with their Half-Life series and run with it, are constantly shunned by elitist snobs clamoring for games with good narrative since Call of Duty is yet ANOTHER game where guys have guns. And every year they have to give their...

Animal Crossing review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 15, 2009

It was a couple of days before Halloween, and I’d decided to move out of my parent’s basement and take up residency in a sunny little forest village called Jerktown. With a name like that, how could the town be anything but a nice place to live? With that logic in mind, I boarded a train with nothing more than the clothes on my back and a small sum of money.

Demon's Souls (PlayStation 3)

Demon's Souls review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 15, 2009

The Kingdom of Boletaria was once a prosperous and advanced society, founded as it was on "soul magic" - or the art of drawing on souls to cast powerful spells. But the lords of the realm grew decadent, and without the discipline and restraint needed, awakened a mythical beast, "the Old one", reducing Boletaria to rubble, and leaving a host of demons to feast on the souls of the remaining population.
