Geometry Wars: Galaxies (DS)

Geometry Wars: Galaxies review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

I'm not a fan of Geometry Wars. It was a fun premise that did not grip me - neither on the Marketplace or in PGR – a game that seemed to lack any real structure beyond ‘blow stuff up to get a high score'. But for some bizarre reason I've given this game a seven. Why the hell would I do that?

Cold Fear (PlayStation 2)

Cold Fear review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

The phrase 'Resident Evil on a boat' has cropped up more than once over time to describe particular survival horror games. Whether you find the phrase cute, pithy or dispassionately accurate when applied, the trouble is that the handful of games attracting this description have yet to bring enough new stuff to the table (apart from the boat) or to do the old stuff as well as the bedrock titles did it, to be able to escape from their shadow. Cold Fear is excellent in its boatiness, perhaps the ze...

Futari wa Precure Max Heart: Danzen! DS de Precure Chikara o Awasete Dai Ba review (DS)

Reviewed on February 24, 2008

They’re cute, aren’t they? The characters in Pretty Cure, I mean. Actually, they’re too cute; they cross that line that separates being adorable and downright irritating. One of them acts as a tomboy (whose costume, ironically enough, sports a ridiculous amount of frills and hearts), another is a brilliant and clumsy second fiddle, and the third is some pink-laden child with disturbingly long hair. They are a group of high school girls that can use their cell phones to transform in...

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy review (WII)

Reviewed on February 24, 2008

As I was playing through Mario Galaxy, I found I was having fun. But not the conventional type of fun. Let’s call it “half-fun”. It’s the kind of fun where you enjoy what you’re playing but at the same time you’re bored out of your mind. It’s like after you drink a big Slurpee; you feel very quenched but simultaneously very thirsty. It became increasingly clear over the course of Galaxy that the game would be a lot better if it wasn’t a Mario game. Forget being played out to death; Mario’s been ...

Civilization III (PC)

Civilization III review (PC)

Reviewed on February 24, 2008

Civilization 3 Complete was released in 2005. It brings together all three games of the series into one complete package. With Civ 3 complete you get the original Civilization 3, a map editor, Play the World Expansion Pack, and Conquests expansion pack. For the money there is a huge amount of strategy, and one can expect to play countless hours of addicting turn based games. Let me tell you, there is no other strategy game out there that will get you hooked and keep you playing. It's really almo...

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PlayStation 3)

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 23, 2008

“There must be a beginning of any great matter, but the continuing unto the end until it be thoroughly finished yields the true glory”. The preceding was said by Sir Francis Drake, a believed ancestor of the games main character, Nathan Drake. You probably recognize Sir Francis Drake from your history textbooks. Wait, does that make this game...educational? Never fear, there is no form of educational learning in this game. All you’ll find here is a superbly crafted video game from Naughty Dog;...

Assassin's Creed (Xbox 360)

Assassin's Creed review (X360)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

At long last, a medieval Grand Theft Auto crossed with Virtuosity with a whole lot of Hashishism and no small amount of heinous Arabic stereotypes. To be fair, Ubisoft Montreal consists of many people of differing beliefs and opinions, so there is no doubt the handful of Christian characters are also uptight, militant arseholes. Yes, it's the Middle East during the Crusades, the glorious 12th century AD. Even in the heart of Mesopotamia, everyone speaks in the tongue of the heretic...

Sonic & Knuckles review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

He’s blue, he’s spiky, it’s that hedgehog that’s too quick to be flattened by oncoming traffic and after beating Robotnik twice, he’s got no time for visiting fellow hedgehog flat-mates. The death egg ship you thought was destroyed for goodreally landed on top of Lava Reef, and the not-so-free-range egg-shaped Dr. Robotnik manages to sneakily trick Knuckles the Echidna to obtain the Master Emerald to repair the Death Egg ship. It’s up to Sonic and Knuckles to team together and stop Robotn...

The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 20, 2008

Welcome to Morrowind, home of the the Dunmer, Outlander. You have been taken from the imperial prison back in Tamriel where you were kept for unspecified crimes and, on the Emperor's orders, placed aboard a ship and sent to this plague ridden and near lawless imperial colony steeped in ancient tradition and littered with ancient treasure for reasons unknown to you or your keepers. You have no memory of your past, nor is one ever imposed on you. You are a commoner of questionable parentage with o...

Undead Line (Genesis)

Undead Line review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

It’s hard to play a fantasy-based shmup like Undead Line without (a) recalling that horrible Square NES release King’s Knight and (b) laughing. Even if one of these games turned out to be good, I will always think the idea of a shooter set in medieval times is silly, especially when it comes to projectiles. The armor clad hero of Undead Line

Odin Sphere review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

Atlus has always been known for it's unique games, games based on concepts and game play that the larger companies would never touch-at least, not until someone like Atlus made the concept successful first. Atlus has brought us many of these surprises in past, and I can guarantee that anyone calling themselves a fan of action, strategy or RPG games has at least one Atlus game sitting on their shelf and I can assure you that Disgaea: Hour of Darkness will always have a place in my collection and ...

Jenga: World Tour (Wii)

Jenga: World Tour review (WII)

Reviewed on February 19, 2008

At last year’s Penny Arcade Expo (PAX), an event called the Omegathon was held which is a marathon competition where participants competed in console games, PC games, and tabletop games. Prior to the event, it was revealed the first event would be Jenga, the classic wooden block pushing game consisting of people freaking out and yelling “JENGA ZOMG!” As a result of this announcement, Jenga sales increased 20%. Moreover, from the “success” of other board games such as Monopoly and UNO, Atari d...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin (DS)

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 18, 2008

It's a good thing the familiar characters from the three previous Advance Wars games didn't return for this fourth installment; most of them would be dead. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin takes place immediately after a devastating meteor shower snuffs out virtually the entire population. Massive clouds of ash and dust now blot out all sunlight, leaving those remaining to scavenge the rotting corpse of society for supplies and shelter, fighting against nature and each other for survi...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 18, 2008

What do you do when the world is devastated by meteorites? Band together the survivors and work toward resurrecting civilization? Nope - you keep on fighting, duh! The game has a crack at this untested scenario in the latest iteration of the Advance Wars series. Gone are the cute and cuddly tanks that would not look out of place at a kids birthday party; missing, presumed dead are the old COs (not Andy! I hear you scream in terror) and in its place is a bleak and barren world, effectively brough...

Pokemon Snap (Nintendo 64)

Pokemon Snap review (N64)

Reviewed on February 16, 2008

Pokemon Snap. These two words have caused children to shiver with fear. They have ruined the reputation of the Pokemon franchise and caused, I’m sure, numerous depression cases across the country. Pokemon Snap, released on June 30th, 1999 in the U.S. was a new concept was to test an original concept for Pokemon; photography. The game was designed to give kids (hence the game’s E rating) the experience of photographing pokemon. However, this “genius” scheme soon went immediately downhill. In ...

Hitman 2: Silent Assassin review (XBX)

Reviewed on February 16, 2008

Silent Assassin is basically the least stealthy release in the series. If you wanna play this game without ever being caught or having to kill anyone else besides the target in every mission, then just skip this and go to the next two games.

Mortal Kombat (SNES)

Mortal Kombat review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 16, 2008

After the phenomenal success of Street Fighter II in 1991, it didn’t come as a surprise to anyone that imitators quickly came along. SNK created many a franchise in the early 90’s which are now beloved cult classics, but the imitator that became the most infamous was by far Mortal Kombat.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review (GCN)

Reviewed on February 15, 2008

Boring. Stale. Rehashed. What do all these words have in common? They describe the Zelda series perfectly. There was a time when I was a Zelda fan; that was when Ocarina of Time was still called Ocarina of Time. I wasn’t a fan when OoT was repackaged and called Wind Waker. I wasn’t a fan when OoT was repackaged again and called Twilight Princess. I wasn’t a fan of Majora’s Mask, either, but I respect that game for trying something new. So what’s Twilight Princess’ excuse? This is as dull, vapid,...

The Earth is in grave danger, and we can thank two stupid astronauts because of that. As they walk on the moon, they stumble upon what they thought was a dumpster. Yeah. They decide to open up the "dumpster", and by doing so, release Rita Repulsa and her minions from their prison. What do these brave, courageous astronauts do next? Run away. Thanks.
