Guitar Hero: On Tour (DS)

Guitar Hero: On Tour review (DS)

Reviewed on November 25, 2008

Creating a game multiplatform is one way for a publisher to sit on the fence by selling as many titles as possible without taking the risk of developing for the losing console. When multiplatform games appear on every active format available, you can’t help but think the publisher (*cough*EA*cough*) are trying to milk the franchise a touch. But when we’re talking a multiplatform attempt to downsize a peripheral based game in which the controller isn’t exactly handheld, a la Guitar Hero, s...

The 3D Battles of World Runner (NES)

The 3D Battles of World Runner review (NES)

Reviewed on November 22, 2008

3D World Runner is best for killing an hour while waiting for your next class or thinking of something to do. It’s fun for a while, but grows old quickly as you realize you’re encountering the same enemies and jumping the same gaps, just with occasional tweaks to make it more challenging.

Iron Tank: The Invasion of Normandy (NES)

Iron Tank: The Invasion of Normandy review (NES)

Reviewed on November 20, 2008

This one holds a lot of memories. I remember me and my neighbor used to play this. Of course, Iron Tank is a single player game, and there wasn't any way I was giving up controller rights. Instead, I got creative. You see, while most of the game is spent feeling very lonely (the only other tanks in the game all seem to hate you), there are these little guys you bust out of Nazi jail cells. My friend got the privilege of role playing these fellas. Yes, indeed, it was a glorious role....

Fallout 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 17, 2008

Stop! If at first glance you see Fallout 3 and think it’s a first-person shooter, you are wrong and should stop reading this review altogether. If you thought otherwise or are curious about the title, by all means read on and I’ll enlighten you on the latest first-person RPG by Bethesda for the Xbox 360 (also available for the PS3 and PC).

Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)

Gears of War 2 review (X360)

Reviewed on November 16, 2008

Gears of War 2 shouldn't even be considered a sequel, because it really doesn't feel like one. What you're getting here actually feels more like an expansion pack. Upon immediately diving into the title's campaign mode, you'll feel right at home, because the controls are exactly the same as the original Gears of War, with some minor additions. Within the first few minutes of being in an actual gunfight, you'll be ducking behind cover, running and rolling between bullets, and chains...

Out of this World review (PC)

Reviewed on November 15, 2008

The year is 1991. A young boy that will one day grow up into a roguish, jaw-droppingly handsome man - let's use the initials D.E - is home alone. At his side a single 5.14 inch black floppy disk which contained something new. Something different...

The Legend of Zelda (NES)

The Legend of Zelda review (NES)

Reviewed on November 15, 2008

Over the years plenty of brilliant action adventure games have been released on several platforms. They have told great stories, taken the gamers to fascinating worlds, and provided some of the most entertaining gameplay found anywhere. With that being said, are these games true adventures? They certainly do not give the player total adventuring freedom and provide only a handful of options between scripted events. One cannot truly adventure when they are following a certain path with events...

Castle Crashers (Xbox 360)

Castle Crashers review (X360)

Reviewed on November 15, 2008

Flash games have become a kind of champion of lost productivity. Whether using them to milk the clock at work or to avoid that pesky learning thing in school, a massive time sink is perpetually just a click away. Utterly simplistic, these games are generally about the little things. It's not too often that you find anything unique, the real joy is instead in each game's individual quirks.

Dragon Ball: Origins (DS)

Dragon Ball: Origins review (DS)

Reviewed on November 14, 2008

For many of us, Dragonball Z is synonymous with "my first anime". Big muscle-bound men powering up to over nine-thousand and beyond, taking on aliens, androids and a fat pink blob... Like it or loathe it, Akira Toriyama's testosterone-fuelled series, the first mainstream anime dub, made anime cool.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Xbox 360)

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts review (X360)

Reviewed on November 14, 2008

There was a time when Banjo and Kazooie were considered 3D platformer icons, probably in the same era when the term “3D platformer” could be uttered without inspiring snickers. A decade after the pair’s first outing, even the folks at Rare seem to be aware that the series is well past its prime. Recurring villain Gruntilda died at the end of the first game, and yet they’ve still managed to bring her back twice, first as a skeleton desperate to restore her gargantuan body mass, and now as a rathe...

3x3 Eyes: Juuma Houkan review (SNES)

Reviewed on November 14, 2008

There comes a time in every man’s life when for the sake of a seemingly pointless competition he is required to review a game whose name is a number because he wasn’t lucky enough to be one of the twenty-six other people and get a letter. Unfortunately for me, I have a terrible university internet connection, which ruled out downloading the game XIII and reviewing that. So naturally, I began looking through some romsets and picked the first game in my 7,637 SNES roms – 3x3 Eyes: Juuma Houkan. Go...

Half-Life 2 (PC)

Half-Life 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 13, 2008

Imagine the future. Not shiny metal and fluorescent lighting; not lightsabers and foreign planets. This is a disturbingly grounded future: today's world and today's ideals, painted black by the harsh brush of technological surrealism. A future where, day by day, life becomes a little more synonymous with survival.

Alone in the Dark (Wii)

Alone in the Dark review (WII)

Reviewed on November 12, 2008

Imagine if you were driving along a coastal highway with your girlfriend on your way to a weekend resort as part of a paid holiday. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a semi truck slams into your vehicle, forcing it from the road to tumble amidst the jagged rocks a hundred feet below. Somehow you survive and pull your carcass out of the vehicle. You look back to help your girlfriend out of the car and see she's unconcious. You give her arm a tug to see if you can free her and her upper torso comes of...

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey (Xbox)

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey review (XBX)

Reviewed on November 12, 2008

Having been a huge fan of Longest Journey, I was excited for Dreamfall. It was one of the reasons I bought an Xbox (now given away). In retrospect, I can't say I disliked the game, but I was definitely disapointed in some areas I never thought I'd be dissapointed in.

Silent Hill 4: The Room (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 4: The Room review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 12, 2008

The Silent Hill series moved from episode two to episode three on the back of new imaginative content alone. The technicalities of gameplay barely changed. Silent Hill 4: The Room (SH4) comes on not unlike the prison guard who, caught nodding off, wakes suddenly and starts cracking his whip at everything in sight. This is an arduous game, and I came out of it feeling more unhappy than not about the experience, even angry with the game's conclusion and my inability to alter it without resorting t...

Donkey Kong Jr. review (NES)

Reviewed on November 10, 2008

I remember playing Donkey Kong Jr. as a wee lad, and loving it. Looking back, I must have either really sucked at video games, had a very short term memory, or just been too naive to know any better. Maybe a combination of all three.

Resistance 2 (PlayStation 3)

Resistance 2 review (PS3)

Reviewed on November 10, 2008

For a while now, I’ve had an itch. One to do unbridled, unprecedented violence in a first-person shooter. Yet, any I found disappointed me. Condemned was choppy, Jericho was bland and Unreal Tournament was redundant. If I was to be sated, I needed something different. I wanted an all-out war, in a game that didn’t force upon me the same re-hashed formulas consistent of first-person shooters.

Elevator Action (NES)

Elevator Action review (NES)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

I wish I could say I liked Elevator Action. If I did, I wouldn't have to justify replaying the same two levels over and over again. I wouldn't have to justify returning to it like a battered wife after it abuses me thoroughly with broken promises and the lingering smell of cheap perfume. I could move on to more amusing games, like Contra or Iron Tank. But I don't like Elevator Action, and I'm determined to stand up for myself now.

World of Goo (PC)

World of Goo review (PC)

Reviewed on November 09, 2008

In this day and age, marking a game as “casual” is usually a kiss of death, forever putting it into the same genre as non-games like Brain Age, Wii Fit, and Wii Music and killing off any hope of being bought by a core gamer audience. In the eyes of many, casual “games” only sell to two types of people: clueless parents that buy them for their kids, and clueless non-gamers who will buy anything that’s popular. For the longest time, this has been the truth – any game that calls itself casual will ...
