Star Ocean (SNES)

Star Ocean review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 28, 2008

Ratix Farrence and Milly Kiliet had only known these spacefarers for a matter of hours, yet already Ronixis Kenni and Iria Silvestoli were risking their lives for a pair of complete strangers. They were breaking Rezonian protocol and pulling their ship out of the station where they were currently under hold. Their destination: Planet Stream, gateway to unlimited passage through time and space. It was a dangerous operation, but the fate of an entire civilization was at stake.

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories (PlayStation 2)

Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 28, 2008

What comes to mind when mechanical penguin monsters say “dood,” a bipolar talking frog with a French accent addresses you as “Monsieur Napoleon Bonerhard,” or when the Rainbow Prism Rangers are willing to come to your aid with a simple cell phone call? Well, you’re either on some illegal substance, or you’re playing Disgaea. A few years ago, Nippon Ichi brought us the first game Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, which proved that tactical strategy RPGs are still cool, and it also had a wacky storyline....

Shadow Hearts From the New World (PlayStation 2)

Shadow Hearts From the New World review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 28, 2008

Remember the year 1929, all kinds of horrible things happened back then. We just got out of World War I, prohibition of alcohol became a law, and worst of all, women’s suffrage was realized a few years ago. Not to mention in a couple of years the stock market will crash and the nation’s economy will be screwed until FDR comes to save the day. In the midst of this, strange monsters are appearing through dimensional rifts and in general, hell is breaking loose. While most RPG’s are useful for Engl...

MechWarrior 4: Vengeance (PC)

MechWarrior 4: Vengeance review (PC)

Reviewed on February 28, 2008

BattleMech (n): An armored combat vehicle about thirty to forty feet tall of vaguely humanoid shape, typically massing from twenty to one hundred tons. Powered by fusion reactors, 'Mechs are best suited for ground combat, although they are also capable of underwater operation as well as operation in vacuum and/or zero-g environments. A 'Mech's only true equal is another 'Mech - artillery, aircraft, and tanks are disadvantaged against them without BattleMech support or a strong advantage in nu...

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (Xbox 360)

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock review (X360)

Reviewed on February 28, 2008

"It's the soundtrack, stupid" is the only mantra that matters when you're developing a rhythm game. Before you even think of introducing new play modes, updating the graphics and presentation, or adding online play, you have to pick the right songs. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock does this better than any rhythm game ever has.

Silver Eagle (NES)

Silver Eagle review (NES)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

Silver Eagle is an odd game to describe. Perhaps the best retro comparison that can be made is with Quintet’s Actraiser. Silver Eagle is not a 2D-Platformer combined with town-building simulator, but it is similar in the sense that it basically has two entirely different games from two entirely different genres combined seamlessly into one. In short, one half of Silver Eagle is a 2D-esque overhead action game reminiscent of Metal Gear with less stealth and more...

Big Brain Academy (DS)

Big Brain Academy review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

Big Brain Academy is a sequel to the smash-hit game Brain Age. It follows the same basic principals as it's predecessor by giving you an examination of your brain after completing various mini-games. The game only contains 15 different mini-games for you to test your brain on, although fun they do start to get repetitive after a while and this is the game's main fault.

Crimson Room (DS)

Crimson Room review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2008

A majority of frequent internet users (gamers in particular) has played, or at least heard of the Crimson Room series of flash “escape-the-room” games by Toshimitsu Takagi. Hosted on approximately four trillion flash gaming websites, you play a character who awakens within a room and has to use household items littered about or deceptively hidden as a means to escape. Such a simple premise has a catch, and that is the difficulty – or simply the absurdity of the solutions and item placements. Pan...

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 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 ...

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...
