Dragon Blaze (Arcade)

Dragon Blaze review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 18, 2009

Let me make one thing absolutely clear: Iím not a shooter expert. I wish I could assert my credibility with a list of titles that Iíve conquered on one credit or a table of high scores that would make your eyes widen with admiration. But I canít do this, and Iím not going to pretend. My humble efforts are usually shot down in flames by an impenetrable burst of neon pink bullets. I never seem able to muster the concentration required to memorise these patterns, let alone understand the intricate ...

RapeLay (PC)

RapeLay review (PC)

Reviewed on February 17, 2009

If you aren't a perv familiar with Illusion's games, you don't have any business reviewing their games. Seriously. It's like asking a male mysogynic gay chauvinist to write about fem lib: if you think you're going to get the objective truth, I have some beachfront property to sell you.

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine (Wii)

Iron Chef America: Supreme Cuisine review (WII)

Reviewed on February 15, 2009

Curse you, Bobby Flay! No disrespect to the other illustrious Iron Chefs of America. Mario Batali is a preeminent expert on authentic Italian cuisine. Cat Cora's distinctive style originates from her Greek and Southern roots. Masuharu Morimoto is a master of all things Japanese, having held his position of Iron Chef in that country's version of the show as well. And Michael Symon, well, he's too new to be sorely missed. But Chef Flay appears first in this pantheon of culinary greatness. H...

EA Playground (Wii)

EA Playground review (WII)

Reviewed on February 15, 2009

ďIncludes Dodgeball!Ē exclaims the cover of EA Playground. I guess in grade school, we all enjoyed pummeling our peers, especially that distinctive thunk of rubber meeting face. However, dodgeball isn't the best game in this bunch, just the most recognizable. This title features seven events in all, but with mixed results. Some really capitalize on originality and simple controls. Others, though, are too basic to really keep you engaged.

Swagman (PlayStation)

Swagman review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 11, 2009

What a strange combination. An E (everyone from the age of three upwards) rated game, only released in Europe on the PS1 and Saturn, that was developed by CORE as the game they made after the first Tomb Raider enjoyed such phenomenal success. It features eight year old twins who collect bugs (the insect kind), turn into monsters, and when they are not in monster form, try to defeat Scallywags using the doughty weapons of a torch and a yo-yo. They spend much of their time falling into the Abyss a...

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (DS)

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia review (DS)

Reviewed on February 11, 2009

My appreciation for Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia never really hit its peak until, after beating the game twice, I went back and tried to play a game in the series that I previously loved (Dawn of Sorrow) only to find the experience hollow, simplistic, and dull. The Castlevania series has survived up to this point by sticking to a pretty routine and unchanging formula, which is fine when the formula in question works. (See also: Zelda.) This newest DS entry is probab...

Silent Hill Origins (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill Origins review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 10, 2009

For a while now, I've felt that the Silent Hill series is dead. For me at least, the beginning of the end was in Silent Hill 3, a game that moved the horror away from psychological terror and put it squarely into the arena of teen flicks and B-movies. Still, while it may not have been the horror masterpiece the first two games were and eschewed much of the exploration structure of the first two titles, the gameplay structure was mostly still in tact and the game contained a lot of the genuinely ...

Crackdown (Xbox 360)

Crackdown review (X360)

Reviewed on February 09, 2009

Grand Theft Auto 3 was nice to play... when you weren't doing the missions. You could go wander around the town, steal cars, mess with people, and blow stuff up. Though, if you really wanted to explore more of that game's world, you were forced to complete the missions to open up new sections of the city. Most of the missions consisted of going to Point A, then driving to Point B to pick someone or something up, heading to Point C, and when you're done, returning to Point A. There was a hard mis...

Nuclear Strike (PlayStation)

Nuclear Strike review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 09, 2009

Released for our beloved Playstation 1 console in 97. (10 years already?) This is the best chopper game I've played, but that's not saying much. Not to say the game is bad, but it depends on your taste.

Top Gun: Combat Zones review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 08, 2009

Top Gun: Combat Zones is the only flight sim I know of for the Gamecube, and maybe the only one, but I'm not sure. What I am sure of is my review of this game, and that it will help you decide whether or not you'd like to buy, rent, or just play the game. Read on.

SSX On Tour (GameCube)

SSX On Tour review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 08, 2009

This last last gen installment of EAís popular snowboarding franchise, SSX, is without a doubt the least appreciated, and most underrated game in the series. Itís definitely not without its flaws, but it seems too choked out by its predecessors, and nobody seemed to pick up on its bold new style of snowboarding.

Freestyle Metal X (PlayStation 2)

Freestyle Metal X review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 07, 2009

Freestyle Metal X or (FMX) as I will be referring to it as later, was quite a pleasant surprise purchase for me. After picking it up in the local bargain bin, and not expecting much out of it, I can definitely say that FMX is a hidden gem of a dirtbiking game. Operating much like the Tony Hawkís Pro Skater series in a dirt bike fashion, FMX brings the solid dirt bike gameplay of racing, jumping, tricking, and listening to rock soundtracks to all of last generationís systems.

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

Reviewed on February 07, 2009

It sure is great to see a return to the Twisted Metal franchise on the PS2. Twisted Metal Black was the only other Twisted Metal game for the system, and as it did so well it was quite odd that we hadnít seen another game sooner. But better late than never, and Twisted Metal Head On: Extra Twisted Edition goes that extra mile to make fans happy, and make that wait more than worthwhile.

Reviewed on February 07, 2009

Wow, in writing this review, I feel a load coming off my chest. Iíve finally released the loathe and love I have built up for this game over the past few days by spreading the word on how I feel about it. In your time playing (hopefully this review convinces you otherwise though) Smugglerís Run you will like the game, love it, loathe it, and want to throw the controller right through your TV screen. Yup, all of those emotions in just a few short hours. Letís break the game apart shall we?

Super Fantasy Zone (Genesis)

Super Fantasy Zone review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 01, 2009

Despite being average at its core, Super Fantasy Zone certainly possesses a unique charm and pleasant aesthetics. Taking a similar structure as its predecessor, Super Fantasy Zone combines the cartoonish buoyancy of any 16-bit platform game and the fast-paced action of any other 16-bit shooter to create a creative blend of style and substance.
