Condemned 2: Bloodshot (Xbox 360)

Condemned 2: Bloodshot review (X360)

Reviewed on May 12, 2008

His life is a wreck. Drunk, angry and dying for another drink, he crushes some pills with his glass, brushes the remains into his drink and downs the lot. An unfortunate guy gets his face pummeled in by him after accidentally brushing past him. He is Ethan Thomas, former Serial Crime Unit investigator. Several months after the events of the first game, the Serial Crime Unit want Ethan back. Another serial killer is on the lose, and Ethan is the only man for the job.

Major League Baseball 2K8 (PlayStation 3)

Major League Baseball 2K8 review (PS3)

Reviewed on May 12, 2008

As the supposed "premier" Major League Baseball game, since 2KSports gobbled up the MLB license, I had very high expectations of MLB 2K8. Touting itself as "the most complete baseball experience available," MLB 2K8 left me with a lot of complaints. I was impressed by the variety of options for a couch coach like myself to tinker around with, from a full-fledged franchise mode with all the trimmings to the more typical Home Run Derby, but MLB 2K8 has some problems, particular...

Prism: Light the Way (DS)

Prism: Light the Way review (DS)

Reviewed on May 10, 2008

If you have ever taken any physics course, then at some point in time, you may have glossed over the behaviour of light. One point that stays clear is that on a flat, reflective surface, the angle that the light bounces off of is the same angle that it first struck the surface at.

Metroid (NES)

Metroid review (NES)

Reviewed on May 03, 2008

Although I have played many worse games, none have filled me with as much anger as Metroid. The idea of fighting in an alien world while finding hidden items and secrets is a great one that has influenced countless classics, but Metroid is certainly not one of them. Its world sucks you in and keeps you playing, no matter how bad it might get. You just cannot put it down, making it one of the most torturous gaming experiences available.

PO'ed (PlayStation)

PO'ed review (PSX)

Reviewed on May 03, 2008

Fun story. My e-chum EmP and I spent an afternoon looking at some dumb old PlayStation games, trying to pick one to lie about and build up as a lost classic. We ended up choosing PO'ed, though the fact that I'm the only one actually writing a review of it shows how reliable the man is. We'd go on eBay, the plan was, since the game only sells for a penny (even when the auction says that it's in GREAT SHAPE L@@K LIKE NEW and promises overnight shipping). We wanted to build PO'ed up as a cult hit D...

bit Generations: Dialhex (Game Boy Advance)

bit Generations: Dialhex review (GBA)

Reviewed on May 03, 2008

For a bit, I was on the fence as to whether Dialhex was a worthy puzzle title. Then I looked up during play one evening to discover that it was now 2:30 a.m. and I had neglected my very imminently-due Accounting homework. The title has a low-key depth that quietly draws your in.

One Must Fall 2097 (PC)

One Must Fall 2097 review (PC)

Reviewed on May 03, 2008

Long ago there was a meeting of video game reviewers held in the seventh circle of Hell without violent people. I remember that I was casually chatting away with the heretics from the sixth circle when I was asked if I could ever give a game a perfect score to which I replied that it would never happen because it meant that the game was perfect with no way of improving whatsoever and there simply was no such game.

Just Breed (NES)

Just Breed review (NES)

Reviewed on April 30, 2008

Enemies are numerous – they litter the battlefield, plotting your demise, waiting for the right moment to strike. This predicament leads to one of the hardest decisions any general has to make: whether to ask his troops to sacrifice health or life in order to eliminate an enemy force. Proudly direct a choice few into the line of fire, drawing your elusive enemy into a clever trap. With your foe now in range, he’s easy picking for the rest of your party.

Portal, the hidden gem nestled within the treasure chest of The Orange Box can now be purchased as a standalone title, allowing a whole new wave of gamers the opportunity to revel in one of the most innovative productions the industry has seen in a long time.

Bleach: The Blade of Fate (DS)

Bleach: The Blade of Fate review (DS)

Reviewed on April 29, 2008

The window for importing Bleach: Souten ni Kakeru Unmei has officially closed. It will always be one of the standout fighting games on the DS, given its strong technical execution and popular anime appeal. The fact that it come the 2-D masters at Treasure will also make many nod with knowing optimism. But players in glorious Nippon have moved on to the sequel, thinning the ranks for Wi-Fi multiplayer. Most important, though, the English localization is now upon us, providing outsiders...

Rampage: Total Destruction (GameCube)

Rampage: Total Destruction review (GCN)

Reviewed on April 28, 2008

Rampage Total Destruction combines the heavy doses of the first two games, and brings in a whole new adventure with almost 30 monsters into one package. The first Rampage for the NES, and the N64 World Tour version are enough for a few hours of fun, but the new adventure is the meat of the package. Let me break it down for you.

Contact (DS)

Contact review (DS)

Reviewed on April 25, 2008

Contact has drawn strong comparisons to a few other games, but it reminded me most of Secret of Evermore - of that 16-bit Mana substitute's Frankenstein-like attempt to construct an RPG story without the slightest charm or spark of life. Evermore, though, had Jeremy Soule's evocative music and an inspired idea here and there, like the giant chess board with malevolent pieces or a uniquely sad cameo by Cecil of FF4. Contact, by contrast, boasts a development...

SEGA Superstars Tennis (Xbox 360)

SEGA Superstars Tennis review (X360)

Reviewed on April 21, 2008

The idea of everyone's favourite SEGA characters such as Sonic, Ulala, AiAi and Nights in a tennis game is a fantastic idea. Hoping to follow in the footsteps of brilliant tennis series like Mario Tennis and SEGAs own Virtua Tennis, the developers at SUMO have given us Sega Superstars Tennis. Does the game score an ace or does it double fault?

Mario Kart Wii review (WII)

Reviewed on April 21, 2008

Love it or hate it, you have to respect the Mario Kart franchise. Spanning six systems, arcade units, remote controlled cars and widely known as the epitome of multiplayer racing, the series makes a welcome return to the Nintendo Wii. The motley crew of characters and weapons make an appearance along with the recent DS additions of online and retro throwbacks. While Mario Kart Wii adds a few more additions and changes, such as a new control scheme, changes to the drifting system, motorbikes and ...

Eternal Sonata (Xbox 360)

Eternal Sonata review (X360)

Reviewed on April 20, 2008

Eternal Sonata is the latest Japanese RPG from Namco-Bandai. Popular classical composer Frederic François Chopin is ill and is sleeping away what seems to be his end. In what he believes to be a dream, Chopin finds himself in a beautiful new world where he sports a chic top hat. With having a famous composer with the likes of Chopin in a video game, one could only imagine how exciting the plot could be. Does Eternal Sonata take advantage of this and create an adventure like no other?

Animorphs (Game Boy Color)

Animorphs review (GBC)

Reviewed on April 18, 2008

Individual missions, those which aid in the destruction of the Yeerks, are completely different from anything in the series. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it’s about the only good thing in the game, and it’s something that leads a player familiar with the series to wonder what comes next. Getting through these missions and to the next surprise, however, is a problem.

The World Ends with You (DS)

The World Ends with You review (DS)

Reviewed on April 17, 2008

One of the biggest criticisms of post Final Fantasy 6 Square-Enix titles is Tetsuya Nomura, that being the character designer for pretty much every Square-Enix title that isn’t Dragon Quest related. Criticisms of Nomura include that he has a fetish for belts and zippers, and that he loves making bad emo protagonists (Cloud and Squall from FF7/FF8 respectively). The World Ends With You was supposed to be proof that Squaresoft could make something that wasn’t a standard JRPG with Nomura’s designs....

Condemned 2: Bloodshot review (X360)

Reviewed on April 17, 2008

To put it bluntly, Ethan Thomas is crap. After the events of the first game, Condemned: Criminal Origins, he left the Serial Crimes Unit, became a drunk, and hangs around the homeless. Some irony, considering he was beating the crap out of them before. Well... some things don't change, because at the start of Condemned 2: Bloodshot, you find yourself using Ethan to fight a group of bums in the back of some alley. With his fists. It appears Ethan has developed the ability to fight with his...
