God of War: Chains of Olympus (PSP)

God of War: Chains of Olympus review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 18, 2008

Chains of Olympus is a handheld version of the PS2 God of War games. But don’t be fooled: it wants desperately to not be a handheld game. In the transition from DVD9 to a 1.8GB UMD, nothing has been lost as far as gameplay is concerned. Content? Replay value? That’s another story. But as a technical achievement, you’d be hard-pressed to find any handheld game with production values this high. All of the over-the-top action of the PS2 games is here, as is their superb visuals and orchestral sound...

Baten Kaitos Origins (GameCube)

Baten Kaitos Origins review (GCN)

Reviewed on March 16, 2008

Baten Kaitos Origins takes place two decades before the events of Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean. As such, it features a whole new cast of main characters. Sagi is the sympathetic orphan, striking out to support his adoptive family. Guillo is his lifelong companion, a mysterious puppet with two timbres of voice and gaudy fashion sense; it tromps around in high heals. Milliarde is an aristocrat who cannot bear to see the feeble punished, and in her estimation, Sa...

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii)

Super Smash Bros. Brawl review (WII)

Reviewed on March 15, 2008

You need to be a Nintendo fan to enjoy Smash Bros. The entire appeal is playing as all those characters from your childhood you’re nostalgic for. I’ve tried playing Brawl with people who’d never played Zelda or Metroid or Kirby, and all I got was a bunch of bored shrugs. But if you have three friends who are interested, the offline multiplayer is some of the most fun you’ll ever have with a fighting game. Notice how I stress “offline multiplayer”, as the single-player game is dull, and the much-...

Star Control 3 review (PC)

Reviewed on March 15, 2008

In a Bargain Bin somewhere I cannot remember, a copy of 'Star Control 3' was sitting idly. The box looked nice and the price was cheap, so I bought it even though I had never heard of it.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel (Game Boy Advance)

Yu-Gi-Oh! Worldwide Edition: Stairway to the Destined Duel review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 13, 2008

Yu-Gi-Oh; a Japanese card game that became popular across the globe, had a hit anime TV series and has had various games based on it now makes its way onto the GBA. Stairway to the Destined Duel keeps faithful to the card game and requires you to duke it out against various opponents with cards that have pictures of monsters on them. While the game will keep the hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh fan happy, it will do little to entertain those who have never played the card game before.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure (Game Boy Advance)

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure review (GBA)

Reviewed on March 13, 2008

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure is Crash's debut on a handheld console and it's a great start. The game keeps to the tried and tested, but highly successful method, of basic platforming mixed in with addictive gameplay, and a ton of collectables. Throughout the game you will see familiar faces and the great level design that made the series stand out from the rest.

Shinobi Legions (Saturn)

Shinobi Legions review (SAT)

Reviewed on March 13, 2008

Shinobi III was an awesome ninja game, most likely the best ninja game of the 90s. You had a really flexible ninja, which made attacking your enemies easy once you master his moves. Though, that didn't mean the game itself was gonna be a breeze to go through. You were attacked by ninjas, soldiers, kite ninjas, evil brains, ninjas on hovercrafts, robots, ninjas with wings, a giant, mutated freak, and, of course, Mechagodzilla. It was a really fun title that took you all over the place, from a sim...

I'm sure it's not the case with everyone, but my experience with games made by Taito has not been very good. Well, at least my experience with their Genesis games.

The Great Waldo Search (Genesis)

The Great Waldo Search review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 07, 2008

I played this game for one reason only: because I wanted to review something. This was the first time I actually tried to play The Great Waldo Search, the previous two times I wasn't even trying and was a bit confused. However, with the thought of writing a review of the game this time around, I kind of tried to understand what was going on. Of course, we all know the premise of Waldo: you have to find this stupid-looking idiot within a giant, detailed map filled with oddball characters. ...

The World Ends with You review (DS)

Reviewed on March 07, 2008

It’s hot out today. The sun is baking the pavement, turning the downtown asphalt into a stove. That doesn’t deter the people, however. The Shibuya shopping district is never slowed down by weather. Hundreds of sightseers are lounging in their chairs, wolfing down their fast food as they plan their next stop. Children and parents wander up and down the streets, gazing longingly into the store windows they pass. Others are meandering through the crowd, lost in whatever thoughts or problems they mi...

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (DS)

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney review (DS)

Reviewed on March 05, 2008

Apollo Justice is exactly like the Phoenix Wright games. The formula has been beaten to death at this point; what was fresh and original in the first game is feeling awfully worn-out now. Despite being the first game in the series developed with the DS in mind, and getting a new main character, almost nothing has changed for better or worse. None of the nagging flaws from the previous Ace Attorneys have been addressed, which is very annoying, considering the developers have had three sequels wit...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix review (DS)

Reviewed on March 03, 2008

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix marks the fifth title in the series of games EA has produced for the movies. In so doing, it reaches a number of sequels that goes unrivaled by almost everyone who is not Megaman. Thankfully, EA usually manages to change the series gameplay with each release, meaning they have hits and misses across all platforms. Unfortunately in the case of the recent DS title, it's a miss.

Soldier Blade (TurboGrafx-16)

Soldier Blade review (TG16)

Reviewed on March 02, 2008

If you own a Wii and you've caroused the selection of titles available on the Virtual Console, you might have noticed something about the Turbografx-16: nearly every game is a shooter. If you didn't already know that, then chances are you haven't had much experience with the genre. The people that play shooters generally know the field very well, and as such most games in this category are specifically targeted at a very small audience. Games like Ikaruga and Gradius V were not...

Jet Moto 3 (PlayStation)

Jet Moto 3 review (PSX)

Reviewed on March 02, 2008

Jet Moto 3 has gone into a transition of developers just as the Twisted Metal series did. The first two games of each series were developed by “Single Trac,” and the last games by “989 Studios.” Some fans may think this is for the worst, but Jet Moto 3 ultimately benefits from this transition.

Blue Moon (Commodore 64)

Blue Moon review (C64)

Reviewed on March 02, 2008

Retro gamers, me included, sometimes make it seem like every game made these days is worthless and that every game from our youth was ambrosia; the familiar '10kb was a game, and we were happy!' effect. It's far from the truth, though. They still make good games these days, occasionally. Can't think of any right now, but they do. And, believe it or not, even the Commodore 64 has its share of black sheep, and I'm the first to admit it. The black sheep I feel like elaborating on today isn't a shee...

Ace (Commodore 64)

Ace review (C64)

Reviewed on March 02, 2008

A.C.E., short for Air Combat Emulator, is an early combat flight simulator on the Commodore 64. Compared to the kind of flight simulators out now, and also to some later titles on the Commodore itself, it is rather primitive. Nevertheless, it is a surprisingly solid game with a fairly smooth flight engine, lots of action, and a high degree of challenge. It also comes with some very memorable options, including the ability to play together (a pilot and a gunner), to refuel in mid-air (which is ev...

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime review (DS)

Reviewed on March 01, 2008

Slimes, you know them, you love them, and you can't live without them. However, these blue little blobs have a dark, dank secret. They're actually communists. They distract us with their cute little antics which results in easy experience points. Meanwhile, Castro and Lenin use this opportunity to convert all RPG players to communism. Of course these allegations can't be proven, but that may change after playing a game where they're the star of the show in Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime for t...

BioShock (Xbox 360)

BioShock review (X360)

Reviewed on February 29, 2008

I'm not normally one for videogame stories, but BioShock's impressed me. Ken Levine and his team at Irrational, if you've managed to miss the sweeping praise, wisely sidestepped the usual Philosophy 101 nonsense while still grasping at a bigger meaning than “aliens are bad”. It's an interactive Xbox 360 condemnation of unfettered capitalism and greed that goes far beyond Metal Gear's soliloquies on cardboard boxes and the meaning of life. Every now-ironic banner lining the city of Rapture procla...
