Metal Black (Saturn)

Metal Black review (SAT)

Reviewed on June 30, 2008

Shoot em Ups have had a bad rep for a long time mostly because a lot of them seem rather similar to each other with a good majority of them taking place in space and involving silvery-white space-fighters depending entirely on power-ups to survive. Every once in a blue moon however a shooter comes along that, despite being as identical as its shooter brethren, establishes itself as one that stands out amongst the crowd with all the right aspects including a unique soundtrack, a unique theme and ...

Die Hard Trilogy (PlayStation)

Die Hard Trilogy review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 29, 2008

Hey, remember that part in Die Hard when John McClane killed 25 terrorists in the parking garage with a machine-gun and grenades? And what about that moment in Die Harder when you see him completely destroy the airport terminal with just his handgun? That was great. Of course, can't forget about that memorable scene in Die Hard With a Vengeance when John and Zeus crashed into a phone booth to disarm a bomb. Classic.

Wizardry: Knight of Diamonds (NES)

Wizardry: Knight of Diamonds review (NES)

Reviewed on June 29, 2008

If you put the first two Wizardry games next to each other, hold a gun to the head of someone who is not an expert on the series, and ask them to correctly distinguish the two before you pull the trigger, they are likely to close their eyes, nervously wet themself, and stammer out a complete guess. Suppose that as an alternative to using the threat of violence as an incentive, you just have your subject play the games instead. Chances are high that the average person will not have the s...

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles (DS)

Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles review (DS)

Reviewed on June 28, 2008

While the PC will always be rightfully known as the king of visual novels, the Nintendo DS began to makes its presence in the genre known with the 2005 release of Trace Memory and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, released only 15 days apart on American shores. Subsequent releases included more titles in the aforementioned Ace Attorney series, Hotel Dusk: Room 215, along with less critically-acclaimed games such as a poorly-remade Myst, with many more yet to come. ...

Oh No! More Lemmings (PC)

Oh No! More Lemmings review (PC)

Reviewed on June 27, 2008

Even though Lemmings was one of my long-time obsessions as a kid, I recently concluded it was now actually a bit boring. The learning curve is far too gentle, there’s an unnecessary abundance of lengthy unchallenging levels, and there’s plenty of map recycling. I often bypassed this expansion from its difficulty, and only a recent play revealed what a gem it is. Eight-minute levels of constant bridge-building have been replaced by snappy, quirky puzzles which are far tougher than the original, s...

MySims (Wii)

MySims review (WII)

Reviewed on June 27, 2008

If you found Animal Crossing to be a hugely addictive work of genius and cuteness – or even if you just thought it was pretty good – and you’d like to have a similar experience on the Wii, MySims will supply that experience. It’s not as deep or longevous as Animal Crossing, but the basic setup is the same (uncharitably you could say it’s a ripoff) and so are many gameplay details.

The Bouncer (PlayStation 2)

The Bouncer review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 26, 2008

On the back of DreamFactory’s The Bouncer (developed by makers of such fine software as Tobal No. 1 and Ehrgeiz), the tagline “Play the Action Movie” is prominently displayed. When I unloaded a whole six dollars on this game, I didn’t realize that it literally felt like playing some forgettable popcorn flick with the occasional 30 seconds of brawling. Alas, I was tricked by the vaguely homoerotic cover art adored with the main character Sion Barzahd. I mean, Japan has...

SpyHunter (PlayStation 2)

SpyHunter review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 26, 2008

I'll admit it. I was skeptical when I heard of Spy Hunter, developers had been butchering arcade classics since back in the PS1 days. Frogger? Tedious platformer with atrocious controls. Contra: Legacy of War? Dull action game with awkward controls. Galaga: Destination Earth? Contender for the title of most monotonous shooter ever, and I payed for Shienryu with fucking money. I'm not sure why I even bought the game, really. I guess I was young, dumb, and stupid. But it worked out for me in the e...

S4 League (PC)

S4 League review (PC)

Reviewed on June 23, 2008

I’ve played a lot of bad Korean MMOs in my day: FlyFF, Ragnarok Online, ROSE, Trickster, and Pangya Golf, to name a few. However, the worst of them all was a game called Gunz: The Duel. The major problem with Gunz was that even though it was supposed to be a third-person shooter, the entire game revolved around swords-only games and exploiting glitches. Then along came news of S4 League, a game that billed itself as Gunz without the suck. Naturally, I didn’t believe a word they said, and I was r...

Dwarf Fortress (PC)

Dwarf Fortress review (PC)

Reviewed on June 23, 2008

Recently, there’s been a big fad in PC Gaming of so-called “independent” developers releasing games that had potential, but ultimately were garbage or not totally fleshed out. Then came Dwarf Fortress. Programmed entirely by one man under the auspices of his company, Bay 12 Games, Dwarf Fortress is what happens when an independent developer has an idea and fleshes it out properly. On paper, Dwarf Fortress sounds like the single worst idea ever – an RTS done entirely in ASCII graphics, Nethack st...

Crysis (PC)

Crysis review (PC)

Reviewed on June 23, 2008

Exclusive PC shooters are hard to find these days. Ever since the inception of the Halo series, it’s become more and more rare to see a PC shooter stay on PC. There was once a time when a game like Half-Life or Bioshock going to a console system would be completely unheard of. Well times have obviously changed and with the dearth of exclusive PC shooters out there, at least one remains to stand tall and show off its mighty graphics and precise controls. Crysis is a stand-out title both for ...

Musashi no Bouken (NES)

Musashi no Bouken review (NES)

Reviewed on June 23, 2008

Lovers of history and mythology will enjoy discovering what events were based on fact and which on fiction. They’ll enjoy exploring a recreated Feudal Japan, wondering which places actually existed. And they’ll ponder how well the next battle will go, where the next quest item will be and question its place in myth.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii)

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games review (WII)

Reviewed on June 23, 2008

Being quite a revolutionary game in itself, Mario and Sonic was always going to attract a lot of interest. The two trademark characters of SEGA and Nintendo, respective gaming rivals for years, come together for the very first time and head an enjoyable Wii title that can even cater for two lots of fanboys. Buying the game will certainly lead to a lot of fun if you've got friends coming over, but if you're counting on the game keeping you amused on your more solitary days, maybe it isn't ...

Lost Planet: Extreme Condition - Colonies Edition review (PC)

Reviewed on June 22, 2008

Proving once again that they are the king of franchise-milking, Capcom is back with Lost Planet: Extreme Condition: Colonies Edition -- the third release of Lost Planet since its inception a mere year and a half ago. Each iteration since the original has added a bevy of new content ranging from new weapons to playable characters like Mega Man. While there's certainly no shortage of content in this latest release, the major problems that have plagued the game since the start remain ...

Bushido Blade 2 (PlayStation)

Bushido Blade 2 review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 22, 2008

In this fighting game from Square(!?), you'll go from one area to another, defeating opponents with one of a few weapons you can pick from. Now, from the sound of that description alone, this sounds like a typical 3D fighting game, like Soul Blade or Tekken, but it's actually quite unique. Neither fighter has a life bar that can be drained away, and both fighters are vulnerable to any attack, so every swing of a weapon can result in instant death. A fight can start, and within seconds, one fight...

ICO (PlayStation 2)

ICO review (PS2)

Reviewed on June 21, 2008

Though intimacy between individuals is one of the most important experiences of the human condition, video games have remained understandably silent on the subject. When attempting to mimic the narrative techniques of films, video games can only come so far – evoking real attachment to polygonal actors is an enormous feat, and one in which most games comically fail. In addition, there are so many negative, misunderstood (cf. Mass Effect on Fox News), and downright misogynist representat...

Final Fantasy VII (PlayStation)

Final Fantasy VII review (PSX)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

A pivotal thing happens at the end of the first disc of Final Fantasy VII: Aeris, a central character, is killed by the main villain, who evidently falls out of the sky or something. Such a reveal might be labeled as a major spoiler by some, but seeing as how it’s likely the most widely known plot development of any video game in history amongst the gaming community… Well, if you didn’t know about it, you probably don’t belong on a site like this in the first place.

The World Ends with You (DS)

The World Ends with You review (DS)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

The Game is dangerous. The Game is bizarre. The Game is insanely difficult. Fail to complete The Game and it'll be the last thing you ever fail to do. I don't mean this game, The World Ends With You, I mean The Game. Our protagonist, an anti-social, lonely people-hater, Neku, is somehow thrown into this Game and is told that he must complete the mission or face erasure. In a strange but fascinating, fast-paced opening, you find yourself linking up with a partner in order to defeat ...

Ys III: Wanderers From Ys review (TGCD)

Reviewed on June 20, 2008

In the world of gaming, there's always been one thing that I've noticed: nearly every series seems to have a black sheep of sorts, hated among the masses because of how different it is. Where would the gaming world be without Super Mario 2, Zelda II, and according to a large chunk of the HG userbase, the entire Metal Gear Solid series? Even my eternally-adored action RPG series Ys has been unable to escape such a fate. Where the first two Ys games featured swe...
