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 (Xbox)

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 (GameCube)

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,...

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 12, 2008

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. Zordon, a giant head in a container (basically), senses what has happened and orders his talking robot, Alpha 5, to gather a team of teenagers with ...

Devil May Cry 4 (PlayStation 3)

Devil May Cry 4 review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 10, 2008

I was one of many hardcore gamers eagerly anticipating Devil May Cry 4 - so much so that I even spoiled myself rotten by watching all the in-game cutscenes (from the earlier-released Japanese version) as they were put up on YouTube. I couldn't help myself. Every piece of information gathered got me more and more hyped up, and early impressions from the short, but sturdy demo just added fuel to the fire. Now that it's finally here, I'm very happy, yet still somewhat disappointed. Ri...

Summer Carnival '92: Recca review (NES)

Reviewed on February 08, 2008

Do not play Recca if you have a heart condition or do not wish to develop a heart condition. That's not even a joke. Recca is one of those shooters that makes you want to scream at the top of your lungs and beat your head against the floor until you are found days later curled in the fetal position in a cold shower foaming at the mouth -- in the best way possible. Your hands will twitch furiously, you'll stop blinking, and -- with all probability -- you will lose control of your...

No More Heroes (Wii)

No More Heroes review (WII)

Reviewed on February 07, 2008

Let's face it. Most games Suda51 has made were a complete and utter failure at being good. You had some of the latter Clock Towers, which were bad to begin with and overshadowed by the vastly superior Silent Hill. You had Killer7, which was mediocre at best. You had Contact, which by many people's standards was at least a partial ripoff of Earthbound. Suda51's latest offering, No More Heroes, vowed to be his first truly good game, as well as a release that fills the four-month void between Mario...

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin review (DS)

Reviewed on February 06, 2008

You get used to it eventually. The smell, I mean. The stench of decaying bodies and burnt flesh. It’s especially bad during the day; as the heat rises off the ground, it makes everything rot so much faster. You can’t avoid it, either. There will always be corpses, no matter where you look. Millions of them, piled high in these ruined cities. Most of them don’t even look human anymore; just maggot-ridden bags of meat with their eyes eaten out and their bones exposed. If you accidentally step on o...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 review (PC)

Reviewed on February 03, 2008

When it comes to purchasing football games these days, you’re limited to a choice between this or EA’s FIFA series. With both series settling into next-gen, PES 2008 is truly revealing Konami’s complacency towards their product and a failure to deal with matters that are a constant thorn: laggy online play, shoddy presentation and limited options, but instead make more subtle changes to the gameplay. On plus points licenses are gradually improving, plus the introduction of a new team of commenta...

Thunder Fox review (ARC)

Reviewed on February 02, 2008

In the far off future, somewhere in the 1990s, terrorists have taken over the world, terrorizing people and doing other type of terrorist activities. Like saying "GRRR!" and such. They have conquered the land, denying us our freedom of going to Burger Kings, secured the sea, ensuring that we'll never find the city of Atlantis, and have taken the sky hostage, making certain that no more bird droppings hit us. But fret not, freedom lovers! Two brave men, from the awesomely titled ANTI TERRORISM TE...

Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 (Xbox)

Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 review (XBX)

Reviewed on January 31, 2008

Playing through Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 1 made me remember something about Capcom: they used to make some really tough games. I was surprised at the amount of beat downs I would get in just one stage in Final Fight, and with Gun.Smoke, my fingers would nearly go numb by the time I'd reach the second stage. Don't even get me started on the Ghost 'n Goblins series... But most of them were still fun to play, even when you were seeing the continue screen for the 500th time.

Third World War review (SCD)

Reviewed on January 31, 2008

Strategy game players love nothing more than CONQUERING THE WORLD. In games like “Warlords” or “Birthright”, you set about conquering a fictional world. This is fun, but not not so much as conquering EARTH itself.

Eternal Sonata review (X360)

Reviewed on January 30, 2008

When you walk upon this world, its beauty will leave you lost for words. The dazzling ambience of rich colour, every shade of the rainbow, is quite a sight to behold. It's almost as if Eternal Sonata is a vibrant dream, and that isn't far from the truth. This obscure tale unfolds within the confines of a dream; that of the famed composer, Frederic Chopin, who lies on his deathbed. And despite the unorthodox setting and cutesy characters, there are a lot of deep issues embedded in Chopin's...
