Giga Wing (Dreamcast)

Giga Wing review (DC)

Reviewed on May 08, 2005

While itís true that you can hang near the bottom of the screen and weave like nobodyís business, such tactics arenít nearly as much fun as worming your way right into the thick of things. Take out a foe from a distance and you can gather small icons that drift through the air. Really move in for the kill and as your adversary bursts into flames, massive remnants gravitate toward you and boost your score into the stratosphere.

Rumble Roses (PlayStation 2)

Rumble Roses review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 08, 2005

The first few notes of Yuka Watanabe's "The Spirit of Hawk" float through the crowded Rumble Roses arena with beauty and grace unbecoming of the Mongolian girl Aigle, a conveniently legal eighteen-year-old who "wants become great warrior like great father". She rides her big brown horse towards the ring, flashing a dignified smile at the crowd as her plump butt bounces up and down.

Do You Like Horny Bunnies? (PC)

Do You Like Horny Bunnies? review (PC)

Reviewed on May 06, 2005

As Yukari finishes up with his chores and the restaurant winds down toward closing time, what will he do? You can have him clean the bathrooms, check the hallway, or just relax. No matter your decision, sex will likely result. Generally, it is preceded by emotional anguish, and the graphical depiction will be accompanied by plenty of bland descriptions of the sex.

King of the Monsters (NeoGeo)

King of the Monsters review (NEO)

Reviewed on May 06, 2005

The fun you might have been expecting stumbles and falls flat on its toothy face thanks to a sloppy fighting engine that employs a variety of pro wrestling holds Ė and a seemingly random chance for success.

Super Off Road (SNES)

Super Off Road review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 05, 2005

Whereas playing alone gets old quickly, itís hard to tire of the multi-player option. The true fun here comes from consistently finishing just ahead of your human opponent, then talking trash as he can barely afford any upgrades in the garage and youíre busy buying expensive boosts for your motor.

Shining in the Darkness (Genesis)

Shining in the Darkness review (GEN)

Reviewed on May 05, 2005

Venture deeper, and your numerous skirmishes are the least of your worries. Pitfalls drop you gleefully to levels below; trick walls hide valuable chests and artefacts vital for your continuation; rotating floor-disks cunningly hidden from your view dizzily spin you on the spot when trod upon, disorientating and confusing the unwary.

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube)

Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes review (GCN)

Reviewed on May 04, 2005

With the exception of a crate here and a computer there, not a single aspect of the original's outdated design has been altered; you can execute far more complex maneuvers now than you could during MGS1 Snake's hide-and-seek antics, but does it matter?

Sonic Mega Collection Plus (PlayStation 2)

Sonic Mega Collection Plus review (PS2)

Reviewed on May 04, 2005

The hit games are as wonderful as I remember them being, featuring the speedy blue rodent ripping through Green Hill, Labyrinth, Oil Ocean, and Angel Island Zones, to name a few.

Welcome to Pia Carrot!! (PC-FX)

Welcome to Pia Carrot!! review (PCFX)

Reviewed on May 01, 2005

Nice man that he is, Yu's father offered his son an out of slaving the summer away at the Pia Carrot restaurant; a bit of a wager, if you will. "Earn high grades... and you're free to do whatever you want. I'll even pay for it." In this case, "whatever Yu wants" meant frolicking across summertime beaches chasing after bikini-clad vixens.

Nintendogs (DS)

Nintendogs review (DS)

Reviewed on May 01, 2005

Even still, Nintendogs is a winner. It's a unique piece of entertainment that opens up the medium far beyond the usual crowd of casual gamers that fill out our ranks. Be it your sister who wants a dog but is sadly allergic to your mother who simply finds such a concept oddly fascinating, the mass market appeal of Nintendo's latest creation is certainly without equal.

Sunset Riders (SNES)

Sunset Riders review (SNES)

Reviewed on April 30, 2005

SR humors us, and tells us lies. In chronological order, the first lie is that in the Old West, there were cowboys named Bob. I know one thing: Bob is not a cowboy. Bobs are office productivity consultants. Bobs arenít gun-wielding lawmen.

Looney Tunes: Space Race (Dreamcast)

Looney Tunes: Space Race review (DC)

Reviewed on April 30, 2005

The game depends too much on those gag items for its own good. There are moments where things get downright frantic and every racer seems to be throwing down anvils and storm clouds like theyíre going out of style. Racing jets are piling up everywhere and flying off the edge, and really itís either a total blast (because youíre surviving) or itís frustrating (because youíre not). It seems there are no in-betweens.

Kiaidan 00 (Turbografx-CD)

Kiaidan 00 review (TGCD)

Reviewed on April 30, 2005

Blow off the rear end of a war cruiser to reveal a tentacled skull. After you've sent gouts of fire into its mouth, the skull transforms into a trident-wielding, humanoid robot. Each boss has no shortage of attacks; this Poseidon wannabe can freeze you in place, send icy waves rippling across the ground, summon a meteor storm, or simply stab you in your big blue face.

Ai Cho Aniki (Turbografx-CD)

Ai Cho Aniki review (TGCD)

Reviewed on April 30, 2005

The first thing that youíre going to notice about this game, and this is neither good or bad but merely a fact, is that itís full of naked men.

Darwin 4081 (Genesis)

Darwin 4081 review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 30, 2005

Basic Darwin involves shooting down ugly hordes of oddly coloured butterfly things, worms, and scores of other foes that resemble random broken bits of plastic left at the bottom of a child's toy box. You simply won't know what to make of this stuff.

Chaos Field (Dreamcast)

Chaos Field review (DC)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

From your very first encounter with a narrow warship to the nondescript battle station that kicks off your last hurrah, there's a distinct lack of anything noteworthy, let alone inspired.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (PlayStation 2)

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 29, 2005

You must see to it that in the epic battle of man versus his surroundings, man conquers, and conquers frequently. You'll regularly accomplish this much, only to be beset by the undead and re-animated warriors set against you.

The Sims (PC)

The Sims review (PC)

Reviewed on April 28, 2005

Underneath the slick interface, beneath the elevator music and the gibberish weíre to take as conversation, The Sims is just a waste of time. It may amuse you for hours, days or even weeks. For those hours and for the sadistic relationship you can share with your unfortunate sim, the package is arguably worth a purchase. But in the end, youíll grow to despise it.

Haunting Ground (PlayStation 2)

Haunting Ground review (PS2)

Reviewed on April 26, 2005

Perhaps then as I've always suspected, the problem can be found in the formula itself. As a way of instilling panic in players, the chase is an effective means to an end. Like any good horror however, over exposure breeds familiarity, and in familiarity we find ourselves numb to the fear.

Heavy Nova (Genesis)

Heavy Nova review (GEN)

Reviewed on April 25, 2005

The collision detection kills any possible entertainment value. Even the reviled Rise of the Robots, for all its flaws, got that part right. When someone appears to kick you onscreen, IT HAD DAMN WELL BETTER HURT. But in Heavy Nova, it doesn't.
