Europa Universalis III (PC)

Europa Universalis III review (PC)

Reviewed on March 22, 2007

Of course, you might instead send spies and find yourself surprised by the fact that you must choose which of several enterprises should serve as the focus for their energy. Most games would simply let you deploy spies and call it good. Europa Universalis III isn’t like that. There’s an insanely deep infrastructure in place that almost always takes things further than other genre titles available, but somehow it’s not that difficult to get a handle on things.

Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 (Xbox 360)

Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 review (X360)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

The level of customization is 10 times what I could ever want and there are tournaments and calendars aplenty. There also are more teams than you can shake a stick at (complete with multiple uniform color schemes) and the characters are credibly animated. Any number of things you can imagine, the game does right. There’s really only the one big flaw: it isn’t fun for beginners.

Lumines Plus (PlayStation 2)

Lumines Plus review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 21, 2007

For those who wonder, the ‘Plus’ in Lumines Plus refers to… nothing I can discern. Mostly, the game plays like the original, right down to the familiar skins and music and puzzles. There must be differences, but they’re nothing immediately noteworthy, not unless you play Lumines so regularly that you have time for little else.

PDC World Championship Darts (PlayStation 2)

PDC World Championship Darts review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 19, 2007

The conclusion gets stressed early today: PDC World Championship Darts can be a lot of fun, especially when you're playing the highly enjoyable multiplayer offerings. Such pub-friendly dart games like around the world, killer and fives make an appearance as well as customisable legs and sets of 501 (or, should you prefer, 301 or 701). Playing these against the computer can be both fun and intense. Playing these against a friend can whittle an evening away before you know it.

Bullet Witch (Xbox 360)

Bullet Witch review (X360)

Reviewed on March 16, 2007

Six stages isn’t much, not when they’re so short. Once you know what you’re doing, you should be able to complete them in less than a half-hour apiece. Only your first attempt will find you taking longer, since you don’t know what you’re supposed to do and where you’re supposed to go.

Auto Assault (PC)

Auto Assault review (PC)

Reviewed on March 15, 2007

In most MMOs I usually solo 'til I can't solo no more. Since I had such a hefty goal set for myself in AA, however, I decided to team up with other players as much as possible -- not once did this happen. The player base is so low that I never ran into someone else my level who wanted to "convoy."

Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007 review (PSP)

Reviewed on March 09, 2007

There were several occasions where I would shoot the ball, it would smack the goalie right in the head, launch into the air for several seconds, then—finally—he would stick his hands up, in some feeble attempt to block my shot, which he already did with his face

Sonic and the Secret Rings (Wii)

Sonic and the Secret Rings review (WII)

Reviewed on March 05, 2007

There’s definitely room for refinement, but if you can tolerate the occasional moments where Sonic and the Secret Rings stumbles and stalls, you’ll find one of Sonic’s greatest adventures to date.

The Mark (PC)

The Mark review (PC)

Reviewed on March 04, 2007

Not that the terrorists will use cover much; they much prefer to stand in the open beneath big neon arrows adorned with “Shoot Me!” in flashing electric pink. And so, you shoot them, as peace-keepers are wont to do, either mowing them down with Fletcher’s assault-rifle or blasting them with Hawke’s shotgun and watching them tumble bonelessly to the floor.

Meteos: Disney Magic (DS)

Meteos: Disney Magic review (DS)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

There are familiar films like “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and “The Little Mermaid,” but “Aladdin” and “Beauty and the Beast” and many others don’t make an appearance at all. At least those characters who do show up are represented well. You get neat little pseudo-animations, like Mulan riding a surfboard with Stitch or the fairy godmother getting ready to cast a spell.

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy (PlayStation 2)

Deus Ex: The Conspiracy review (PS2)

Reviewed on March 01, 2007

Peace is not easily kept in the world that Deus Ex presents. The police are as corrupt as the senators assigned to oversee them and the only thing that talks on the streets is the harsh retort of a loaded firearm. The NSF, an antiestablishment terrorist organisation, grows bolder by the day, sabotaging civil buildings and landmarks, attempting to dispel the positive dogma spun by the governing power and underwrite their authority. Ruthless and destructive, their ever-swelling ranks encompass a stirring unrest in the lower order, one quickly camouflaged from the world with a sturdy veneer of propaganda. They are to be dealt with.

Grandia (PlayStation)

Grandia review (PSX)

Reviewed on February 28, 2007

Grandia is one of the most clichéd RPGs ever made. It’s also one of the best. The key is execution.

Dark Cloud 2 (PlayStation 2)

Dark Cloud 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on February 28, 2007

Even worse, many of these foes have holes in their AI large enough to drive the robotic Steve through. For example, those tiny dragons can be targeted from a distance and shot from long range AND unless their random flight pattern takes them a bit closer to Max or Monica, they won’t even notice they’re getting butchered.

Dance Dance Revolution Universe (Xbox 360)

Dance Dance Revolution Universe review (X360)

Reviewed on February 27, 2007

I appreciated being eased into the game, and as a result I was able to more fully soak in the Dance Dance Revolution experience. Konami took a risk by adding such simple songs right at the start, but it paid off.

Lunar Knights review (DS)

Reviewed on February 26, 2007

Trapped in a never-ending night, humans have no choice but to be enslaved in the cities, or fight for survival on the fringes of society. Even in the darkest of times, one thing the human race can not be stripped of is hope.

Twinkle Tale (Genesis)

Twinkle Tale review (GEN)

Reviewed on February 23, 2007

As soon as the girl enters that mountainous area of the first level, rocks start plummeting from the top of the screen. While they are easy to dodge, smart players may choose to not have their favorite weapon equipped during this section, as it could be quite damaging to blunder into a boulder and wind up weakened after this brief section. Because, with magic-firing mages and gigantic golems providing a gauntlet to pass before engaging in battle with the chimera that serves as the stage’s boss, being at top offensive capacity is definitely desirable.
