Dead Head Fred (PSP)

Dead Head Fred review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 17, 2009

Sometimes, when my life is overtaken by drudgery, I like to think about how it would be if video games were colours that you could mix together to get an entirely different hue. For instance, what kind of a shade would we get by combining Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones with a layer of Metal Gear Solid slapped on top of a canvas made from Splinter Cell? Would it be utter manliness set against ancient societies, Nazis, political intrigue and whips, or would it be a feste...

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (DS)

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles review (DS)

Reviewed on March 16, 2009

Because of humorous mystery games like Phoenix Wright, you may have forgotten that murder is a serious business. Jake Hunter is here to remind you of the harsh reality. Under the name Jinguji Saburo, the private detective has been solving crimes in Japan for over twenty years. Rebranded for North America, Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles revisits three of his earliest cases. Unfortunately, you'll be following his footsteps rather than stepping into his shoes. A lack of real i...

MadWorld (Wii)

MadWorld review (WII)

Reviewed on March 16, 2009

Thereís a man dying in front of you. Blood is pouring out of his torso like a fountain, and the gash across his gut is deep enough to suck. Heís staring at you with wide, agony-stricken eyes, screaming at you for help. Thereís not a lot of time, so you have to act quickly. There are several ways to approach this, though. You could just let him die. But thatís not what your sponsor wants, what the fans expect, or the what the rules imply. Besides, itís justÖ boring. So what will it be? A s...

Wii Fit (Wii)

Wii Fit review (WII)

Reviewed on March 15, 2009

It would seem that Nintendo's master plan has finally come full circle. After fattening up their user base over the last 20 years, they've finally released their own antidote: Wii Fit. I was given Wii Fit for Christmas in a not-so-subtle hint that I need to lose some weight. Thankfully, demand for Wii Fit is still high, so I was able to sell it recently and buy a real game instead.

Resident Evil 5 (PlayStation 3)

Resident Evil 5 review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 14, 2009

Innovation doesnít have to be good, right? That was what I first thought when I played Resident Evil 4. I was one of those few people who didnít like the way that the game took the Resident Evil (Or Biohazard, if you prefer) series. Despite this attitude, I must admit that I enjoyed Resident Evil 4, perhaps not as a Resident Evil game, but as a shooter. When Resident Evil 5 was announced, I was one of those people who prayed, unrealistically, that it would return the series back to the old schoo...

Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)

Gears of War 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on March 14, 2009

It took me around a week to finish the original Gears of War, while I managed to complete the sequel in less than twenty-four hours. Itís not that I was in any rush to beat Gears of War 2 (I wasnít) or that the sequel is at all shorter than its predecessor (if anything, itís a little longer). The game is so intense, so utterly captivating from title screen to end credits, that I had no choice but to keep playing. Its hold on me was that strong.

Spot Goes to Hollywood (Saturn)

Spot Goes to Hollywood review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 10, 2009

Cool Spot was a game I never played that much, especially back when it was released for the Sega Genesis. However, despite that, it still managed to leave a lasting impression on me. Whenever I think of the game, one of the first things I automatically remember is the opening, where Spot, a red dot with shades, the 7 UP mascot, jumps in and out of the SEGA logo, which is shortly followed by Spot pushing the giant Virgin Interactive logo on screen, all by himself. Then, finally, the title screen ...

Castlevania: Dracula X (SNES)

Castlevania: Dracula X review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 09, 2009

I donít make any pretensions to be a hardcore gamer, but I really love the Castlevania series. It doesnít hold any nostalgic value for me as I was a relative latecomer to the series. I dabbled in the NES entries for a bit, but I didnít fall in love until playing Symphony of the Night. It was from here that I started to seek out other games in the series, which led to my playing Castlevania: Dracula X for the Super Nintendo. It remains one of the most enjoyable 2D action games I have ever played...

Liquid War (PC)

Liquid War review (PC)

Reviewed on March 07, 2009

Let me take you back to my first year of college at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington (I know youíd probably rather not be taken to Tacoma, but bear with me). The year was 2002. Life was simpler back then. You didnít have to own three home consoles and two hand-held systems to round out your gaming experience. Xbox users didnít have to worry about their machines spontaneously combusting. Roommates didnít have to keep glass valuables out of Wii-range. Half Life 2 hadnít even...

Clive Barker's Undying review (MAC)

Reviewed on March 05, 2009

Patrick Galloway traverses the silent corridors of an ancient manor. His long hair sticks to his face with sweat, and he absently brushes it away with the barrel of his magnum revolver. His other hand clutches a stone that glows softly with un-revealed power, dimly lighting the otherwise dark hallway. Somewhere in the distance, eerie laughter can just be heard over the heavy sound of rainfall. Patrick shakes his head as if to clear it. Heís here to help his friend, Jeremiah Covenant, explai...

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (PlayStation 2)

Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 04, 2009

It has been nearly five years since the release of Metal Gear Solid 3, and in that time I can think of no game Iíve enjoyed more. The gameplay and narrative of MGS3 is far above those of the previous games, though I donít mean them disrespect in anyway. MGS3 was simply the culmination of the strongest elements of the previous two games, while adding its own powerful flavor to the mix. MGS3 contains so much variety, so much depth, and so many possibilities that even well after 20 playthroughs I h...

Retro Game Challenge (DS)

Retro Game Challenge review (DS)

Reviewed on March 04, 2009

Nostalgia is a powerful thing. It strikes when you least suspect it, in that one, awe-inspiring moment in which you realize what youíve forgotten. What youíve left behind. Sure, you might be immersed in some hundred-hour RPG, or slaughtering random baddies with your huge arsenal of high-tech weapons. You enjoy what the current generation of games can offer you. Thereís nothing wrong with that; gaming has come a long way in the last twenty years. If youíre old enough, you can appreciate such adva...

Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers (Wii)

Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers review (WII)

Reviewed on March 04, 2009

Slaying is such a guilty pleasure. Really, it is. You might deny it, claim that you derive pleasure from something more intellectually stimulating. Something nicer. But once youíve gotten a taste, itís hard to stop. Itís beautiful, mesmerizing in its own disturbing way; the blood doesnít just seep out, but gushes forth in a glorious fountain of gore. The dismembered limbs donít just fall away, but go flying across the room and leave splattered trails in their wakes. The heads are especial...

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X (PlayStation 2)

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 02, 2009

When it comes to Resident Evil, I openly admit to being a fanboy. I buy the comics, the toys, the skins and any other gimmick I can find; most of it in anticipation for Resident Evil 5. Iím so eager, in fact, that I was willing to play Code Veronica based solely on a rumor that it contained a very shortóalbeit significantóplot revelation for the upcoming RE 5.

Skies of Arcadia (Dreamcast)

Skies of Arcadia review (DC)

Reviewed on February 26, 2009

A game doesn't necessarily have to do anything different to be a good one. While many tout games such as Donkey Konga or Rez for their "innovations", they forget that a simply yet expertly crafted game almost always ends up offering more beef than these so-called breaths of fresh air. Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Metroid, Doom; many of the games considered to be revolutionary classics never really revolutionized anything at all, polishing their wheels to a perfect shine as opposed to reinventing t...

DJ Max Portable Emotional Sense - Clazziquai Edition review (PSP)

Reviewed on February 22, 2009

Face it, DJ Max is too tough for you. The twitch rhythm game's reputation is based on insane difficulty. For normal people, the highest eight-button setting exceeds impossibility. Six-button mode merely approaches that insurmountable level. Five-button mode, meant as a baby-step in training, brings its own hindrance: as the fifth button can be covered by either hand. Even four-buttons, the absolute floor, can produce anguish on the tougher songs. So consider DJ Max Portable Emoti...
