Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord (Sega Master System)

Miracle Warriors: Seal of the Dark Lord review (SMS)

Reviewed on January 12, 2008

I remember the first time I played Final Fantasy 2 (AKA FF4 in Japan) from start to finish. It was quite nice. One day I thought about playing the whole game again. But then, when I pressed 'Start', before I got control of Cecil & Kain (the heroes), I had to watch a several-minute-long intro. The Intro was interesting the first time, but not this time. I wanted to kill monsters ASAP, not see again the boring reasons that made Cecil start doubting his role as an army commander.

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition (Wii)

Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition review (WII)

Reviewed on January 12, 2008

There’s nothing more satisfying than the realistic feel of physically aiming at and bursting the decrepit watermelon of a zombie’s skull with the morbid Gallagher's hammer of your shotgun blast. There’s nothing more invigorating than feeling that sigh of relief twist into a horrified grimace as you realize there are ten more behind you - and instinctively, almost mechanically turning 180 degrees and balancing firing, dodging and reloading with the dexterity of an octopus until hordes of our corr...

Zombie Nation (NES)

Zombie Nation review (NES)

Reviewed on January 11, 2008

When I saw the cover art for Zombie Nation, I initially thought, "Whoa, this game looks awesome! I can't wait to kill all these zombies! I don't really know what that giant head is laughing about in the background, but whatever, this game has to be good!" I soon discovered that the giant head on the cover was laughing at me. Not only laughing, but cackling. Cackling because his crappy old game sold again(I bought it used). His plan to lure me in by means of box art worked ...

Mega Man X6 (PlayStation)

Mega Man X6 review (PSX)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

With the release of Mega Man X5, series director, Keiji Inafune, had completed his vision. As far as he was concerned, the X series was finished. The suits at Capcom thought otherwise. Mega Man X6 is little more than a cash-in on the franchise's popularity and is a soulless, unnecessary addition to the series.

Uninvited review (NES)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

"LOOK OUT!! The last thing you remember before blacking out was a shadowy figure appearing in the road in front of you. You heard your sister cry out as you swerved the car into this tree. You realize that you are alone. Your sister must have gone for help." Chyeah right! We all know she was kidnapped, this is a horror game after all. What you just read, before my little piece of commentary, was the introduction to, "The Uninvited."

Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra (PC)

Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

Some RPGs strive to hold you by the hand from the first meetings with townspeople (''Do not forget to EQUIP your weapons and armor after buying them!'') to your final victory over the master villain (or in RPG slang, ''end boss''). In either subtle or distinct ways, the player is led from one town to another, one boss after the next, a bunch of quests in a set, clear order and if you're lucky, a couple of optional ones on the side. Then there's Might & Magic 3 which does quite the opposite. In a...

Jagged Alliance 2 (PC)

Jagged Alliance 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

The island nation of Arulco is, without a doubt, in the biggest mess it has ever been in. A mad and ruthless queen has seized control of the country and its mines, and money is her only concern. The population has been reduced to poverty, a well-funded, oversized army keeps them in check, and as the queen grows richer and richer, the once glorious country is in shambles. A rebel force exists, but lacks the weapons and the manpower to make a difference. But that's where you come in. Armed with a ...

Claw (PC)

Claw review (PC)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

Released by Monolith in 1997, Claw seems to be a game lost on an unexpected system - a pure platform title on the PC. It tells us the story of Captain Claw, the fearless feline pirate who preys on the ships of - who else? - the Cocker Spaniard empire. In the opening cinematic, a stroke of misfortune causes Claw and his band of merry cats to be boarded and captured by a Spaniard frigate commanded by the evil mongrel Redtail. In his death cell, Claw finds a note left by another prisoner which tell...

Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy review (WII)

Reviewed on January 10, 2008

If anything embodies the simple beauty of videogame entertainment, it is Nintendo’s Super Mario series. For many gamers, its creative level design and instinctive gameplay underline the entirety of their gaming experience as much as the iconic characters are ingrained into their psyche. Super Mario Galaxy follows tradition and is so beautifully and imaginatively constructed it beggars belief. But while Galaxy revels in its old school prowess combined with its innovations, there are times when th...

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (GameCube)

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (GCN)

Reviewed on January 08, 2008

Prince of Persia is one of those games in which the plot is created around the necessities of gameplay. You've got yourself a linear action adventure game that involves a ton of environmental puzzles. In other words, the majority of this game is figuring out how to get from here to there. And that's kind of boring if there's no danger, right? But if you're trying to cross a giant chasm, what happens if you fall? There has to be some balance between the danger and giving the player a chance....

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams review (WII)

Reviewed on January 06, 2008

Hey. You awake? Don’t be so sure. How do you know? You could be slumped in your chair, drenching your keyboard in drool. Maybe the morning sunlight is creeping through the nearest window. It’s not like that would wake you up, anyway. You’re too far-gone to see it. You’re wandering through that strange and mysterious place called your subconscious, where reality and thoughts blend to create the most surreal visions of your imagination. It can be beautiful, awe-inspiring, and frightening all at on...

Birthright: The Gorgon's Alliance review (PC)

Reviewed on January 05, 2008

When D&D (and later AD&D) was invented, in the 70's, it was a game made for and by wargame enthusiasts. The 'father' of RPGs placed much importance on numbers and tables. This is probably one of the reasons that the first D&D forays into the PC were made a wargame company, Strategy Simulations Inc. (SSI).

The Simpsons Game (Xbox 360)

The Simpsons Game review (X360)

Reviewed on January 05, 2008

Prepare to laugh. The Simpsons are here and they’ve brought along parodies of games, and people in the industry. Everquest, Metal Gear Solid, Katamari Damacy, Pokemon, and so much more are all spoofed in The Simpsons Game, brought to you by EA Studios. So grab your controller, turn on your system, and get ready to rock!

Star Voyager (NES)

Star Voyager review (NES)

Reviewed on January 04, 2008

Shooters created during the 8-bit era had one thing in common – they were all primitive. Hell, even overhead shooters today can be considered primitive. Although they are generally challenging and might sometimes feature innovative and/or creative ideas, they all have a very simple concept – shoot everything that moves and don’t get shot while attempting to rack up the highest score possible. Some might contain power ups and other neat additions, but you can’t get a more basic premise then th...

Batman review (NES)

Reviewed on January 03, 2008

There are many out there who might make the mistake of thinking Batman is just an ordinary video game. They’ll go and think things like, “it’s just an outdated platformer,” or “this just looks like some crappy licensed title from a technologically obsolete era,” or “he doesn’t have superpowers, so it’s fine if we shoot him in the mouth!” For a brief time, these thoughts crossed my mind as well. Yet after playing for just a short while, my usually normal blood pressure turned into audib...

The King of Fighters XI (PlayStation 2)

The King of Fighters XI review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 03, 2008

Power. That’s all it’s really about, isn’t it? Never mind the wealth. Forget the glory. The King of Fighters tournaments have and always will be a struggle for power. Some want it for good. Others want it for evil. Then there are guys like Ash Crimson. He’s out to steal the mystical flames of Kusanagi and Yagami Clans. Now that the tournament is starting up again, he’s got his sights set on Kyo and Iori, the wielders of the powers he’s after. It’s not like he’s an utterly depraved villain...

Bible Black review (PC)

Reviewed on January 02, 2008

Bible Black is a vile, generally detestable anime series that's managed to develop a fan base over the years. What's lesser known is that the series is actually based on a similarly vile hentai game of the same title. The game manages to be a little better than you might expect, but not by much.

NEOGEO Battle Coliseum review (PS2)

Reviewed on January 02, 2008

Meet Goodman. Nobody really cares about him. In a world where Geese Howard and Rugal Bernstein – you know, real fighting game bosses – dominate the playing field, this fellow comes up short. He looks like a cheap Igniz knockoff, wields a fiery whip, and controls a purple ball of flame shaped like a baboon’s head. Ooh, fearsome. His design practically screams, “I’m a throwaway villain! Beware my generic scheming!” If he weren’t poised to take control of the SNK universe, he’d hardly...
