Gaiares (Genesis)

Gaiares review (GEN)

Reviewed on December 30, 2005

Zigfried Ages 2500 Volume 1: Gaiares
Across a series of 5 or 6 ads spanning SEVERAL YEARS, we learned important things like how to pronounce the name "Guy-Are-Us" (no comment) and we got to watch "professional gamer" Jamie Bunker fumble his way through puberty. The interesting thing about Renovation's misguided and ridiculously extensive ad campaign is this: Gaiares is actually pretty damn awesome.

L.A. Rush review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 30, 2005

When I’m speeding through Los Angeles and I look behind to see twenty cops cars in hot pursuit, I half-expect a jazz band to start playing.

Sniper Elite (PlayStation 2)

Sniper Elite review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 30, 2005

It may not be your cup of tea if you're a fan of manic action games like Devil May Cry, but if you don't mind the idea of leisurely capping people from afar then it's definitely worth a shot.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (Xbox)

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 review (XBX)

Reviewed on December 28, 2005

But you'd have to go back a long way -- all the way back to Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3. A game that might well be the best entry in the series but at the sacrifice of being the last decent title the franchise will ever see.

Raiden III (PlayStation 2)

Raiden III review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 28, 2005

There's a noticeable absence of firepower on the screen at any given time, particularly when compared to the latest generation of shooters. As such, players new to the genre might find Raiden III the perfect stepping stone into a few of the more, hell-ish encounters. And so long as they're not expecting too much, they might even have a good time.

Mario Kart DS (DS)

Mario Kart DS review (DS)

Reviewed on December 27, 2005

With so many great tracks, it’s hard to pick a favorite. If you’re missing some of the good times of old, a lot of those are back, too. You can race through re-imagined versions of the tracks from each of the past games in the series. They’re just as much fun as they were before. In fact, that’s true of the whole game.

Battlefield 2 (PC)

Battlefield 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 27, 2005

Battlefield 2 rewards you for playing well, and for playing a long time. Points from each kill go toward your global score, which then allows you to unlock new and improved weapons. An improved medic can shoot every bit as well as the low-level sniper if you choose to accessorize. This system, which deducts points for team kills, makes it less tempting to snipe teammates.

Christmas NiGHTS (Saturn)

Christmas NiGHTS review (SAT)

Reviewed on December 25, 2005

Nights soars past lavishly decorated Christmas trees, cute Nightopian creatures wear bright red Santa suits, and candy canes sprout from the snow-covered earth. By reading the Saturn's internal clock, Christmas Nights adjusts the game's internal events to correspond with every holiday season.

Wild Arms - Alter Code: F (PlayStation 2)

Wild Arms - Alter Code: F review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 24, 2005

Wild Arms Alter Code: F combines the smooth play mechanics of Wild Arms 3 with the original's promising storyline... but it's not a re-hash. From reinvented dungeons to exponentially superior character development, Alter Code F distinguishes itself from the original and deserves its own praise.

Fighter Maker 2 (PlayStation 2)

Fighter Maker 2 review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 24, 2005

If you put enough time and effort into it, you have a chance of enjoying RPG Maker 2 and making something decent with it. But no matter what you do, Fighter Maker 2 is always going to be a piece of crap.

Riddle of The Sphinx (Atari 2600)

Riddle of The Sphinx review (A2600)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

Your hero starts out moving at a semi-brisk pace, but will soon be ambling at a gait that makes me look nimble after finally stepping away from an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Shadow the Hedgehog (GameCube)

Shadow the Hedgehog review (GCN)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

So fast, so furious, so out-of-control, so insane…this is the essence of intense. You are the embodiment of speed, the epitome of alacrity. You’re running 720 MPH straight down the Highway to Hell, quaking soldiers at your front and broken bodies at your back.

Predator: Concrete Jungle (PlayStation 2)

Predator: Concrete Jungle review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 23, 2005

That’s not to say you can’t have fun. Killing people is a time-honored tradition among the average gamer, and nobody kills people better than a Predator.

Metal Gear Acid 2 (PSP)

Metal Gear Acid 2 review (PSP)

Reviewed on December 22, 2005

That being said then, Konami's evolution was never going to address such concerns. Depth, Rebirth, and Solidity, are what they wanted, and Metal Gear Acid 2 has nailed its targets in turn. Those familiar with the original however, should feel right at home as the premise itself hasn't changed. You're still alternating rounds with the AI, moving Snake across the map via the use of cards which are randomly dealt from a fully customizable deck.

First Kiss Story (PC-FX)

First Kiss Story review (PCFX)

Reviewed on December 19, 2005

Unlike something like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, First Kiss Story doesn't try to make you feel bad about anything. It's an optimistic game that promotes "love of life" instead of "self-destructive despair", which makes the game a heck of a lot of fun to play. From start to finish, First Kiss Story is a true feel-good experience.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (PlayStation 2)

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex review (PS2)

Reviewed on December 18, 2005

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex keeps within the pre-existing universe already set up by the anime. The distinctly futuristic Japan is your playground, and the hi-tech gadgetry contained inside your toys. In keeping this universe intact, it presents the player with a unique and fresh game that always manages to impress.
