Time Slip (SNES)

Time Slip review (SNES)

Reviewed on January 25, 2009

When a game's music is its best feature by a wide margin, you're probably in for a rough ride. Don't get me wrong, there are some excellent soundtracks out there -- Chaos Legion's frenetic rock and the Ys series' magnificent scores come to mind -- it's just that I generally don't feel too good about things when a handful of tunes I could "legally buy" for free are the most rewarding part of a $50 product.

College Hoops 2K8 (PlayStation 3)

College Hoops 2K8 review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 24, 2009

In College Hoops 2K7, the computer AI melted against the press, throwing careless, telegraphed passes. In the half-court set, it was possible to stalk the passing lanes at the top of the key without paying much of a price defensively. The massive amount of turnovers delivered easy walkovers on even the most difficult settings. Now that 2K8 has rolled around, the CPU finally learned how to protect the ball. It'll confidently dribble across the timeline, and any man left open can...

Banana Nababa (PC)

Banana Nababa review (PC)

Reviewed on January 24, 2009

Gamers who have played Banana Nababa, an 8-bit boss rush game, will tell you it's a fun, yet difficult, title. Now, at this point, if you've never played Banana Nababa, you're probably pretty intrigued. I mean, a tough, boss battle game that's designed to look, play, and sound like an NES title? Wow, it feels like dreams are growing on trees, only falling to the ground and... I got nothing. I, too, was curious about this game when I saw it for the first time in a video, being playe...

Sonic Unleashed (Wii)

Sonic Unleashed review (WII)

Reviewed on January 21, 2009

Sonic the Hedgehog screwed up. He let himself get a little too confident about his role as a hero. Sure, he has Chaos Emeralds and can turn into a golden, flying juggernaut anytime he wants. Yes, Dr. Eggman can be incredibly stupid despite his technical genius and ambition. That doesn’t mean that he can be taken lightly. Sonic learned that the hard way; not only did evil mastermind manage to outwit him, but actually used him in his latest scheme for world domination. Thanks to Sonic’s blunder, t...

Left 4 Dead (Xbox 360)

Left 4 Dead review (X360)

Reviewed on January 21, 2009

For me, purchasing a video game on an already limited budget comes down to its lasting appeal. Otherwise I can just rent it at blockbuster and return it a few weeks later with no late fees. Left for dead is somewhere in between lasting appeal and too short and slapped together.

Gradius IV (Arcade)

Gradius IV review (ARC)

Reviewed on January 20, 2009

I first picked up the Gradius III & IV compilation pack initially because I was into Gradius III at the time, since I was primarily playing it via MAME and the PSP Gradius Collections. When I received the PS2 ports, I played Gradius III with the slight hope of getting the 1 credit clear, but it's so cruel near the end of the game where you face the infamous cube rush that I just gave up, knowing that I would have to memorize an utterly frustrating point of an above average game. Eventually, I d...

Way of the Samurai (PlayStation 2)

Way of the Samurai review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 19, 2009

I picked up Way of the Samurai many a year ago in one of those impulses that causes you to browse games at Target while you’re momentarily distracted from buying cheap T-shirts with pictures of Bob Ross on them. These impulses occasionally lead to solid gold, more often lead to disappointment, and can on rare occasion result in eternal damnation, like the time I found one of Satan’s toenails at a lazy seaside pawn shop.

My Little Pony Pinkie Pie's Party  (DS)

My Little Pony Pinkie Pie's Party review (DS)

Reviewed on January 16, 2009

Before starting to write this review, I tried to think about who might read it. Unlikely to be the small children for whom this game is designed, and most likely to be some long suffering parent, trying to find a good reason to resist the demand for yet more My Little Pony related merchandise. If you fall into this category, then I'm sorry to say that I have bad news for you. This game is surprisingly good, and in fact I would recommend it for any girl or boy who likes pink ponies and opening lo...

The 7th Guest (Mac)

The 7th Guest review (MAC)

Reviewed on January 15, 2009

It was one of the first CD-ROM games ever released, one of the first games to use live action video placed over pre-rendered graphics, and one of the first games to have an adult theme (not counting Atari’s vast library of lewd titles). That’s a lot of impressive firsts, but it also places The 7th Guest as a pioneer trying a lot of new technology in the early 90’s.

Devil May Cry 4 (PlayStation 3)

Devil May Cry 4 review (PS3)

Reviewed on January 14, 2009

There reaches a point in any franchise’s history when it peaks, and the creators of the franchise are faced with a dilemma. Do they try and top that success with another game, or do they take their money and run while their reputation is still intact? Inevitably greed makes their decision the former, and inevitably developers seem to think the best way to top a great game is to make one exactly like it.

Moon (DS)

Moon review (DS)

Reviewed on January 14, 2009

It was all a lie. Everything. The history of the world, the origins of religion, the development of modern civilization, our very existence. The conspiracy theorists were right; aliens not only exist, but they’ve been in contact with us all along. Watching, subtly manipulating humanity into what it is today. It’s kind of funny, in a way. They’ve been hiding in plain sight the entire time, but we could never reach them…until a few decades ago. The Apollo 11 mission to the moon was one of the grea...

The Office review (PC)

Reviewed on January 14, 2009

You wanna know why I purchased The Office? I was blown away that a developer went out of their way to create a video game based on a comedy taking place in an office building. I just had to get it. So, coming into the game, I didn't have any high expectations, I just simply wanted to know how the hell it played.

Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure (DS)

Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure review (DS)

Reviewed on January 13, 2009

Sugar and spice and all things nice. That's what little girls are made of, and this game might seem as if it has been designed for girls only. The heroine, Cornet, is a horn-playing 16 year old lass who falls in love with a Prince; her constant companion is a pretty doll that speaks, called Kururu; and when she has to fight monsters her main attack spells are made of cake or pancakes! In fact, even the the kingdom of Marl is ruled by a queen, and the story revolves around a witch called Marjoly,...

B-Boy (PSP)

B-Boy review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 12, 2009

Usually, a title in the music genre churns out a set routine, and you dutifully follow along as best you can. But breakdancing is about creativity and expression, so it's no surprise that a game featuring this art steps out of the typical music mold. B-Boy lets you dictate the performance, delivering an opportunity to develop your own style. And it does it all with a sharp appearance and streetwise attitude.

Theresia (DS)

Theresia review (DS)

Reviewed on January 12, 2009

There are no zombies after your brains, no monsters trying to chop you up, no aliens intent on mass reproduction, and no battles. Yet Theresia is a fascinating (point and click) horror adventure, that kept me playing for hours at a time, until I had uncovered all its secrets and reached the very satisfying ending of two complex stories.

Animal Crossing: City Folk (Wii)

Animal Crossing: City Folk review (WII)

Reviewed on January 10, 2009

Australian's buying this game should beware - the much advertised transfer of your Animal Crossing Wild World character to this new game will not work. Why? Because our version of the DS game was a re-labled US version. While the DS games have region codes, it usually doesn't matter because it isn't region locked. Nintendo of Australia took a shortcut a few years ago, and this means that PAL copies of Animal Crossing "Let's Go To The City" will not recognise our copies of Wild World.

Yggdra Union (PSP)

Yggdra Union review (PSP)

Reviewed on January 09, 2009

The game's subtitle has always been “We'll Never Fight Alone.” In this PSP port of Yggdra Union, you're just a little less forsaken. A few new characters expand your party and the ways to navigate through the adventure. Larger armies subtly change the dynamics of battle. Additional methods of restoring life make it a hair more forgiving than the GBA original. However, Yggdra Union is still a methodical, exacting strategy game that unmercifully punishes any mistake. It walks a...

Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure review (DS)

Reviewed on January 08, 2009

Every once in a while, something will come along and completely blow me away and surprise me by its quality. Video games tend to do this every so often, and recently I was witness to this very phenomenon occurring. There was a game released for the Sony Playstation a while back named Rhapsody, a cute strategy RPG game that got by on its musical charm and unique storyline.
