.hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 24, 2008

Combat has been streamlined. You no longer have to wade through menus just to implement a single skill. Skill triggers enable you to simply press a few buttons in order to perform an ability. While itís not perfect Ė you canít utilize them to cast spells or use items Ė itís definitely a lot more convenient. And it should silence anyone who knocked the first series for its unwieldy battle system.

Cannon Fodder (Amiga)

Cannon Fodder review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on July 24, 2008

Sensible Software took soccer and made it slick, speedy and easy to pick up and play, resulting in the cult classic Sensible Soccer. Using the same mechanics they turned their attention to warfare. Strip away a soccer pitch and replace it with a maze of trees; replace match day kits with uniforms and swap the away team for a gun totting army, and you have Cannon Fodder. While the genre and aims are nothing alike, it is just as attractive and addictive as their accomplished take on ...

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (DS)

Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift review (DS)

Reviewed on July 23, 2008

Luso Clemens has a problem. Several, actually. Thanks to his inability to sit still, heís earned the ire of every parent and teacher whoís ever had to deal with him. Heís been tardy and disruptive so many times that heís gotten himself a detention on the last day of class. Given his insatiable curiosity and short attention span, itís surprising that he can even make it to the library to serve his punishment. Itís not like he spends his detention sitting around in quiet remorse over his blunders,...

Namco X Capcom (PlayStation 2)

Namco X Capcom review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 23, 2008

The majority of strategy RPGs have one major factor in common: they all tell touching stories of war-torn lands. Be it the powerful, albeit poorly-translated tale of Final Fantasy Tactics; the personable adventures in the Fire Emblem series that allow you to fall in love with each and every character; or even the hallowed Shining Force games, fallen from grace as they are today like all of SEGA's once-greats, the stories keep you motivated, and keep you playing.

Alien Syndrome (Wii)

Alien Syndrome review (WII)

Reviewed on July 23, 2008

My Arcade Action Extra magazine from 1988 features an Alien Syndrome spread packed with gameplay tips and outrageously exciting screenshots for what was the then new coin-op from Sega. Two decades later I find myself playing a makeover of this outer space answer to Gauntlet on a motion-sensing console made by Nintendo. How times change.

A Sound of Thunder (Game Boy Advance)

A Sound of Thunder review (GBA)

Reviewed on July 22, 2008

Imagine my enthusiasm when I booted up yet another movie tie-in, this time a third-person shooter. Even worse, itís based on a film thatís all about time travel, and anyone who knows me can tell you that Iím not a fan of time travel, because nine out of ten times, the concept is implemented such that itís riddled with plot holes.

Assassin's Creed (PlayStation 3)

Assassin's Creed review (PS3)

Reviewed on July 17, 2008

You know when someone asks you how your day was, and you want to tell them how great it was, but actually it's been a pretty miserable day? You're stuck trying to come up with something to tell them that's good, something other than "I've got a wicked case of Jock Rot" or "my pet rock died." You need a stand in. For me, the stand in of the last week has been Assassin's Creed.

Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer review (GEN)

Reviewed on July 15, 2008

With a spelling error in the title, a domicile on a sometimes technically inept console, and membership in a genre that prides itself on redundancy, expectations are not particularly high for Gley Lancer. ďA shoot-em-up,Ē said I, ďon the Mega Drive no less! I look forward to the suicidal alien pilots, ear-bleeding music, grainy graphics, and a selection of generic weapons ranging from lasers to different color lasers to bullets that fire so fast that they are actually just a different k...

Blackmailed by Bethnal Green boss, Charlie Jolson, and his henchmen, Hammond is forced to obey the manís every whim or else lose his boy forever.

LostWinds review (WII)

Reviewed on July 13, 2008

Itís so easy to take for granted. The wind, I mean. Science explains it as the reaction to pressure between two adjacent air masses. Nothing more, nothing less. But for the folks that have a bit more imagination within their grasp, the wind can be mysterious and otherworldly. You canít see it, but its presence is all too clear. It could be that slight breeze tickling the back of your neck in the early morning. Or maybe itís that sudden burst of air that sends you a face-full of raindrops during ...

X-Men: Mutant Academy (Game Boy Color)

X-Men: Mutant Academy review (GBC)

Reviewed on July 12, 2008

Button mashing will see you through every battle, even at the highest difficulty. Thereís no real system of commands that demand mastering. Just back your enemy to the end of the screen and wail away. Theyíll be caught in a trap of constant abuse in which they can scarcely land a hit, one in which escape is impossible save for jumping. But theyíre often too stupid for that.

Devil May Cry 4 (PC)

Devil May Cry 4 review (PC)

Reviewed on July 11, 2008

The Devil May Cry series hasn't exactly been consistent. While the original game was a unique and ultra-stylish masterpiece, the second outing was a universally reviled mess. The third game had the gameplay back on track, but was deemed too tricky by all but the most hardcore of action fans. It turns out that the fourth time's the charm, because Devil May Cry 4 is as good as the self-proclaimed "hard stylish action" franchise has ever been.

Guitar Hero: On Tour review (DS)

Reviewed on July 11, 2008

Just when you thought Activision couldnít milk the Guitar Hero franchise anymore, they go on and make a handheld version of the plastic guitar rhythm-based game. Aside from Harmonixís Phase for the iPod, one would wonder how a handheld Guitar Hero would work. Well, youíd include a mini fret board, utilize some of the DSís features, slap on a $50 price point and voila, Guitar Hero: On Tour is born.

INXS: Make My Video review (SCD)

Reviewed on July 10, 2008

Now, Iíve only played a handful of games that Iíd describe as truly awful. These games were either unplayable due to horrible controls, an awful grasp of the subject matter or they were just plain boring. However, despite my exposure to these horrible titles, nothing in the world could prepare me for the sheer atrocity that is INXS: Make my Video. One of the three video-editing (and I use that term lightly) games (that one too) released on the Sega Mega CD, this title follows the fad of...

XIII (PlayStation 2)

XIII review (PS2)

Reviewed on July 09, 2008

XIII is a game based off the famous Belgian comic book of the same name. It is an adaptation of the first five volumes of the comic series (a series with 18 volumes and a lot of plot). In line with this, the game combines cell shaded graphics and comic style effects in order to make the player feel that they are inside a comic book. While this isn't the first time such a media cross has been attempted, XIII is notable for being one of the few to attempt it in a first person shooter genre. Unfort...
