Every Extend Extra (PSP)

Every Extend Extra review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 17, 2006

The name of this game is Every Extend Extra, because it's got extra content! Q Entertainment was so enamoured with the PC freeware original that they decided to turn it into a full-fledged commercial release. The simple single-level game mushroomed into a challenging chain of nine diverse stages. Each level features a unique theme with customized enemies and music.

Guild II (PC)

Guild II review (PC)

Reviewed on November 16, 2006

Welcome to 1400, a time when everyone bribes, spies, and blackmails for personal benefit. It just so happens, though, that life in medieval times isnít everything itís cracked up to be, as repetition quickly creeps in.

Guitar Hero II (PlayStation 2)

Guitar Hero II review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 14, 2006

Guitar Heroís combination of fist-pumping music, vibrant characters, massive replay value, and immersive gameplay, had never come together so perfectly in a music game.

My Frogger Toy Trials (DS)

My Frogger Toy Trials review (DS)

Reviewed on November 13, 2006

If you bump into creatures that populate the map often enough, your life meter will quickly drain and your game will be over. The same is true if you accidentally hop off a tile and into a bottomless pit or into water (since Frogger canít swim). This might not sound so badóand at first it isnítóbut eventually youíll be working your way through really long stages and jumping into pits or bumping enemies is all but avoidable.

Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich (PC)

Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich review (PC)

Reviewed on November 12, 2006

Unlike most of the other WWII RTS's that cry for attention inside the overcrowded genre, this seems to be the focus of Blitzkreig II: Fall of the Reich. The emphasis is no so much on the clever deployment of troops and armour as it is in gathering a sizeable collection of tanks and steamrollering over everything as quick as you can.

Camp Lazlo: Leaky Lake Games (Game Boy Advance)

Camp Lazlo: Leaky Lake Games review (GBA)

Reviewed on November 10, 2006

Itís clear that Camp Lazlo: Leaky Lake Games was conceived as a collection of mini-game madness, just as itís clear that the team behind it ran out of ideas about five minutes in. To pad things out, they made an exploration mode that will occupy about two thirds of your time. This mode is about as much fun as playing Tic-Tac-Toe against yourself.

God Medicine (Game Boy)

God Medicine review (GB)

Reviewed on November 10, 2006

In my mind, this scenario had all sorts of potential. You have three video game geeks transported into a video game world. And we all know how RPGs are chock-full of cliches ó leading me to believe God Medicine would be loaded with all sorts of snarky inside jokes capable of eliciting gleeful guffaws from real-life video game geeks like me.

Bubble Bobble Revolution (DS)

Bubble Bobble Revolution review (DS)

Reviewed on November 09, 2006

I knew that I was getting into trouble the moment I saw the box art. What happened to Bub and Bob? The cuddly little dragons I had come to love over the years had been turned into repulsive, bucktoothed, sacks of lard.

God Hand (PlayStation 2)

God Hand review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 09, 2006

When God Handís not funny, itís thrilling. When itís not thrilling, itís funny. And sometimes it manages both at once.

Conflict: Desert Storm II - Back to Baghdad (PlayStation 2)

Conflict: Desert Storm II - Back to Baghdad review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 08, 2006

Shoot them in the leg and watch the blood well up in the affected joint and a supporting hand cover the wound; chuck a grenade at them and watch as they panic and flee; waste a flare gun round on one, and watch him flail about on fire before smouldering into an ashen heap at your feet. You could almost feel sorry for them.

Mateki Densetsu Astralius (Turbografx-CD)

Mateki Densetsu Astralius review (TGCD)

Reviewed on November 07, 2006

Mateki Densetsu Astralius is a promising game, and that promise almost pulled it from the slimy, slippery tar pits populated by other PC Engine fossils. But sometimes promise isn't enough.

Death Jr. II: Root of Evil (PSP)

Death Jr. II: Root of Evil review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 06, 2006

This is not a shocking new step for the platformer, but what makes Death Jr. II fun is its light-hearted, irreverent approach. Weíre not dealing with another ďhipĒ animal mascot -- weíre dealing with the Grim Reaperís son!

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (PlayStation 2)

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 03, 2006

Like its big brother X-Men Legends, Ultimate Alliance wastes no time; thereís no cities to traverse, no prologue to wade through, no sappy love story to stomach. Things start off blazing and they stay that way right up until the final battle.

Rengoku II: The Stairway to H.E.A.V.E.N. (PSP)

Rengoku II: The Stairway to H.E.A.V.E.N. review (PSP)

Reviewed on November 02, 2006

The premise behind Rengoku 2 is exactly the same as the original. It's a pointless game where a customizable robot fights arena battles against other robots until it reaches the top of a not-so-massive tower, thus ending the game.

Bully (PlayStation 2)

Bully review (PS2)

Reviewed on November 01, 2006

It's not odd for weaker individuals to be singled out by stronger individuals, made the butt of every joke, ostracized and degraded just because they're good in school or they know how to play chess or they know what Ďdilettanteí means. It's not odd for teachers to turn a blind eye on the torment, just because the tormenter happens to own a Varsity jacket. Money and lies, cliques and discrimination, scandals and extortion; school is a bitch and then you graduate. Jimmy Hopkins would agree.

Night Trap review (SCD)

This game was once singled out as representing everything wrong with the entire industry. Thatís hard to do!

Waxworks (PC)

Waxworks review (PC)

Reviewed on October 31, 2006

Waxworks is a 1st person, real-time dungeon crawl thatís sure to provides hours of wholesome entertainment for the whole family Ė that is, if youíre the Addams Family. Much lighter on the RPG side of things than stat-heavy fare like Eye of the Beholder, instead it focuses firmly on exploration, puzzle-solving, and buckets of grisly, explicit GORE.

Night Trap (PC)

Night Trap review (PC)

Reviewed on October 31, 2006

The last and best release of Night Trap, unfortunately the PC version is also the most scarce; most people arenít even aware that it exists! But while youíd really have to be a fan of the originalís campy humor and ridiculous acting to bother tracking it down, those who do so are going to be treated to a significant upgrade of this timeless Sega CD ďclassic.Ē

Brides of Dracula (Amiga)

Brides of Dracula review (AMIGA)

Reviewed on October 31, 2006

Whether heís being portrayed by Christopher Lee or George Hamilton, one simple fact remains the same: Count Dracula is historyís greatest pimp. Sadly, most games are so fixated on silly things like drinking blood or getting whipped by men in leather that they overlook our heroís slick sophistication, excellent dancing skills, and long, hard . . . fangs. Fortunately Brides of Dracula corrects this grievous error by not only letting you play as crotchety Dr. Van Helsing, but also the Bodacious Bloodsucker himself as he prowls Transylvania looking to pick up chicks.

.hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth (PlayStation 2)

.hack//G.U. Vol. 1: Rebirth review (PS2)

Reviewed on October 30, 2006

Everythingís happening real-time (except when you access menus for healing items), so you can set up brutal combo attacks and then follow through with special moves that add significantly to the damage you inflict. Another benefit is that sometimes, colored bands of light will briefly circle around your impending victims. Thatís your cue to use a special move, which will add to the experience points you and your friends gain once the confrontation has come to its bloody conclusion.
