Ratchet & Clank: Future (PlayStation 3)

Ratchet & Clank: Future review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 23, 2008

Over the past two generations of consoles, not many franchises have shone brighter than Ratchet and Clank. Insomniac used a seemingly flawless formula of bad-ass guns, huge explosions and stellar platforming to entrench the series among the industry's finest.

Ark of Time (PC)

Ark of Time review (PC)

Reviewed on October 21, 2008

Ark of Time is a game you’ve never hard of, which makes you reading this review an oddity. Perhaps you jus liked the name, perhaps you were drawn in somehow by the shiny coverart or perhaps I’m wrong. Perhaps you found this lying in a local bargain bin and decided to take a risk on the unknown.

Fantasia (Genesis)

Fantasia review (GEN)

Reviewed on October 21, 2008

I must confess that I listen almost exclusively to classical music. At work, I frequently infuriate my co-workers by turning off their intolerable rap music and switching to NPR. The thing with classical music is that it requires a great deal of concentration to get the most out of it. The pieces that I enjoy hearing the most are the ones that I have heard repeatedly, ones that I perhaps have some familiarity with the score itself, and ones that I'm able to pick up on the subtle nuances.

Fable (Xbox)

Fable review (XBX)

Reviewed on October 20, 2008

What a fascinating failure Fable is. I don’t know exactly how long it was in development and I’m too lazy to find out, but I can tell you that I first heard about it when it was called Project Ego during the post-E3 launch craze of mid-2001, a year that inspires repeated use of the phrase “back when.” Back when Microsoft was clearly in over its head. Back when the Xbox was doomed to fade into history as another failed attempt by an inexperienced first party to dominate the console ...

Silent Hill: Homecoming (PlayStation 3)

Silent Hill: Homecoming review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 15, 2008

In light of the innovations made by competing survival horror franchises such as Resident Evil and Alone in the Dark, it wasn’t surprising that the latest Silent Hill game would be pretty different from the rest of the games in the series. With that said, many fans are quick to dismiss The Room as a “true” Silent Hill sequel. Although the next game, Origins did much better, as it played more like a classic Silent Hill game, though with more action oriented and “3D” controls. Homecoming was the n...

Exit (Xbox 360)

Exit review (X360)

Reviewed on October 14, 2008

Upon first glance of EXIT, you'll probably assume that it's just an average, two-dimensional platform title taking place mostly inside normal buildings. And you'd be half right. EXIT puts you in control of a man called Mr. ESC, an escape artist (get it, HAR HAR?), and for the duration of the entire game, you'll have to constantly help whiny people exit hazardous situations through 220 stages. You're damn right that's a lot of stages. It doesn't sound all that great, and when you pl...

Pump It Up Zero Portable (PSP)

Pump It Up Zero Portable review (PSP)

Reviewed on October 12, 2008

PIU Zero Portable is the game PIU Exceed Portable should have been. Really. Zero actually co-ops a significant chunk of its PSP predecessor's set list, mixes them with favorite songs from the NX and Zero arcade flavors of Pump It Up, and presents it all in a much improved package. Where Exceed exhibited a clunky, frustrating user interface, Zero is intuitive and accessible. Where Exceed rigidly controlled user options, Zero

Radia Senki: Reimei Hen review (NES)

Reviewed on October 11, 2008

If there was ever an underrated game, this would be it. Released in 1991,this was the NES's "Golden RPG"; but, sadly, it never got the fame it deserved.

Kingdom Hearts (PlayStation 2)

Kingdom Hearts review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 11, 2008

If you’re willing to bypass the game’s numerous flaws and instead look at its marvelous accomplishments, you’ll enjoy your time immensely. It’s plot really is touching, and sometimes even shocking, amidst the predictability; the realms of Disney are so well thought and acted out that they feel almost real; and combat is refreshing, if clumsy at times.

Bionic Commando Rearmed (PlayStation 3)

Bionic Commando Rearmed review (PS3)

Reviewed on October 10, 2008

Ah the good old days of gaming, when things were simpler and games didn't last as long. Of course, this was probably because you lost all three lives within ten minutes of game play and then went to do something else, like play soccer or have a tea party with your sister.

Resident Evil: Outbreak File #2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 08, 2008

The Resident Evil series' supposedly exclusive move from the Playstation to the GameCube kicked off in 2002 with the arrival of the cripplingly good Resident Evil Remake and Resident Evil Zero. Resident Evil 4 was still three years away, but in a 'so much for that Nintendo exclusivity clause' series of events, the gap was filled by the appearance of the two Resident Evil Outbreak games back on the PS2. By way of explanation, Capcom muttered something about the Outbreaks not ...

Mega Man review (NES)

Reviewed on October 07, 2008

Despite the popular notion that the Mega Man series never evolved (or became more “intelligently designed”) as it progressed, the series actually underwent many fundamental changes in its early NES installments. While the differences between the first Mega Man and Mega Man 6 are pretty blatant, even the refinement that took place between MM1 and MM2 or MM3 and MM4 cannot be overstated. Anyone that has played these games over and over (and over)...

Koudelka (PlayStation)

Koudelka review (PSX)

Reviewed on October 07, 2008

The great thing about Koudelka is the atmosphere and storyline. This is not your typical Japanese RPG with cheery graphics and a cutesy storyline with a bunch of children. This game takes place in a haunted castle in 1898, and you control three characters who not only are adults, but also very mature. It's nice to see that in a RPG for a change. There's also a bunch of great scenes as you really get to see the characters develop, and the main villain is up there with Eve from the Parasite Eve ga...

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 04, 2008

Giant robot games bore me. While a handful are good, especially the tough-as-nails sidescroller Assault Suit Leynos 2 and the well streamlined MechAssault, the vast majority of them bog themselves down in too many mechanics to be of any amusement. The Armored Core series, for instance, allows you to customize everything from your mech's engine style to the color of its vomit, but the feature goes to waste in light of the titles' lumbering, prosaic combat. Most of these...
