Tail of the Sun (PlayStation)

Tail of the Sun review (PSX)

Reviewed on September 04, 2008

Tail of the Sun is something I've heard about ever since it was released, but never had the chance to play. However, every time I've read up on it in some magazine, the person seemed to have a hard time explaining how the game works. They would basically describe it as a game about nothing. This bugged me for years, so I finally got a used copy of Tail of the Sun to see just what the hell it's about.

Silent Hill 3 (PlayStation 2)

Silent Hill 3 review (PS2)

Reviewed on September 02, 2008

The astonishing quality of the original Silent Hill was of a nature so weird that it seemed unlikely to be replicable in sequel form. Silent Hill's logic was that of an abstract nightmare, its methods of sensory, emotional and intellectual disorientation most damaging when you had no clue that they were coming. This kind of lightning tends not to strike twice in the same place, but Konami have resolutely continued to fling bolts towards the same patch of ground Ė with surprising results. It's a ...

N+ (DS)

N+ review (DS)

Reviewed on September 02, 2008

There seems to be a big craze these days over difficult acrobatic-based platformers. Most of them were freeware to begin with Ė Jumper, I Wanna Be The Guy, etc. So far, only one game has made it to a commercial release, that game being Way of the N, ported as N+ to the DS and XBox Live Arcade. Since I could get the game as freeware anyway, I had no qualms about finding the newly-released rom and loading it onto my flashcart.

Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone (Game Boy Advance)

Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone review (GBA)

Reviewed on August 27, 2008

Maybe it's not entirely original, but Yggdra Union is a marathon strategy game made especially for masochists. Its narrative begins like many others in the genre. A bloodthirsty despot overruns every kingdom in the land, with conquest and destruction his sole ambition. Only Princess Yggdra survives her country's royal massacre, escaping with a holy sword into a company of gold-hearted bandits. The tiny guerrilla group has to struggle across battlefield after battlefield, square by squ...

Galaga Legions (Xbox 360)

Galaga Legions review (X360)

Reviewed on August 25, 2008

Galaga Legions has got to be one of the most handicapped shoot-em-ups I have ever played. Right from the very start, after your ship launches into space, the game will actually alert you to where every single formation will appear from. Hell, not only that, but it goes the extra distance to show you the path it'll first take when they appear on screen. But since your ship can only shoot in one direction (up), that should at least give you a semblance of a challenge, right? Well, a new add...

Pump It Up Exceed Portable (PSP)

Pump It Up Exceed Portable review (PSP)

Reviewed on August 24, 2008

When it comes to dancing games in North America, Dance Dance Revolution is the biggest name to know. But there are other games in town, like Pump It Up. Through a dozen arcade and console releases in Asia, PIU has built a reputation as a freestyle-leaning alternative to DDR. In sticking with its dancing roots while transitioning to a handheld, though, Pump It Up Exceed Portable leaves that flexibility behind, and it ends up playing a clear second fiddle to a...

Devil May Cry 4 review (X360)

Reviewed on August 23, 2008

Nero's no Raiden. Folks who were somehow dumbfounded by Metal Gear Solid 2's ending may have groaned the last time a popular series ditched its popular hero, but it's tough to argue that starting fresh for Devil May Cry 4 wasn't a great idea. The third game did everything there is to do with Dante. Six different fighting styles and ten different weapons, one of which was a fucking electric guitar that shoots lightning and batsóhow do you top that? You don't. Not that Devil May Cry 3 was perfect,...

The Incredible Crash Dummies (NES)

The Incredible Crash Dummies review (NES)

Reviewed on August 18, 2008

Itís the crash you need to consider. Slamming into a far wall, a frequent occurrence when enemies ram you, or smashing into the ceiling, will often result in the loss of your head. Literally. Itís a serious inconvenience that confounds your mobility, inverting your directions. When left suddenly becomes right, disorientation is expected and much damage is sustained.

X Com: Terror from the Deep (PlayStation)

X Com: Terror from the Deep review (PSX)

Reviewed on August 18, 2008

X-COM 2: Terror from the Deep is the sequel to X-Com: Enemy Unknown (or UFO Defence, depending on your nationality) a follow on that tries to change as little as possible. But when the foundations set are already killer, it's not that big a deal.

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles (Wii)

Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles review (WII)

Reviewed on August 15, 2008

Capcom has a long history of recycling games they've previously made. A prime example of this is their Street Fighter and Megaman series. Resident Evil(or Biohazard)is no exception. Several of the games in the series have been remade or released. The Umbrella Chronicles, despite containing content from many previous Resident Evil games, The Umbrella Chronicles isn't simply just another release. The game is basically a "reimaging" of the entire Resident Evil story, remade to be played on the Wii ...

Cruis'n USA (Nintendo 64)

Cruis'n USA review (N64)

Reviewed on August 15, 2008

Cruisin' USA is essentially Rad Racer in actual 3D. That might not sound so bad at first, after all Rad Racer is a beloved classic by many, but unfortunately the days in which a game could appeal to people just by being a racing game have long since passed, and players have grown to expect some semblance of aptitude and originality in the titles they purchase.

Windy x Windam review (DS)

Reviewed on August 14, 2008

Meet Izuna. Some of you might already know her from her starring role in The Legend of the Unemployed Ninja. As the title implies, she hasnít been working for a while now. Itís understandable; regardless of how undeniably awesome ninjas are, there just isnít a need for them anymore. The days of shuriken slinging and stealthy assassinations have long passed. Why pay some masked killer a small fortune to carry out a deed that could be solved with a well-placed grenade or a few dozen machin...

Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 review (X360)

Reviewed on August 14, 2008

The Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Beta (will there ever be a day when they stop adding words to this title?) is included in Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3. I didn't purchase it for that. I actually could care less about replaying a game that came out 14 years ago which includes updated graphics and a few other tiny enhancements. Yes, believe it or not, I bought C3 to play C3.

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures (Xbox 360)

LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures review (X360)

Reviewed on August 14, 2008

With the success of the Lego Star Wars series, LucasArts decided to release a Lego game based on another famous George Lucas movie franchise, Lego Indiana Jones. Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures was the result of that idea. Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures is based on the three original Indiana Jones movies released in the 1980s. Like the films, Lego Indiana Jones follows the adventures of the title hero, Dr. Henry Jones Jr, an archaeologist and a teacher of history, as wel...

Bangai-O Spirits review (DS)

Reviewed on August 14, 2008

Do me a couple of favors, will you? I want you to stop playing all the popular games on the DS. Not permanently, of course. Put your ridiculously overpowered Final Fantasy IV party aside for a second. Give your Pokemon a rest. Take a break from defending Phoenix Wrightís clients. Whatever youíre playing, just take it out of the card slot and tuck it away somewhere safe. Donít worry; this wonít take long. Just make sure youíre not distracted by the undeniable quality that those respective ...

Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword (DS)

Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword review (DS)

Reviewed on August 12, 2008

It seems to me that most DS games can be divided into two categories. There are those that embrace the stylus and those that treat it as a spare part, and there arenít an awful lot of the former. Stylus functionality tends to be a burden for developers who feel obliged to cater for it but really have no clue how to implement it. It usually ends up serving as an action button, which is hardly an innovation. Having to drag a finger across the screen to pick up a block in Lego Indiana Jones ...

Castlevania review (N64)

Reviewed on August 11, 2008

This game cheated me. I had originally started playing on the normal difficulty, but finding that its spastic camera and inane method of fighting led to more deaths than I deserved, I decided to restart and play on easy. The game became slightly more tolerable, and it would not be inaccurate to say that I, on some occasions, did not hate it from the depths of my soul. This ended when it came time to ascend a certain tower. Believing that I was to continue playing, I hopped onto an elevator o...

Mutation Nation (NeoGeo)

Mutation Nation review (NEO)

Reviewed on August 11, 2008

Against all other arguments, I typically feel that porting an arcade title to a home system, disenchants a game's entire theme. What could amuse me more than spending hard earned (used loosely) quarters to fill up a machine so that I can improve my in-particular gaming prowess in order to impress, infuriate and downright discourage random challengers or assistants? It's definitely not playing a marathon of Tekken with your best friend on the couch, to find the fictional fighting that started out...
