Labyrinth X (Xbox 360)

Labyrinth X review (X360)

Reviewed on May 04, 2013

Trial and error so tedious, it even takes the gleam off barely-covered anime tits.

Captain Commando (SNES)

Captain Commando review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 04, 2013

Not only was blood removed from the game, but the boss named "Blood" got his name changed to the less-intimidating "Boots" (to reflect his kick-heavy offense).

E.V.O.: The Search for Eden (SNES)

E.V.O.: The Search for Eden review (SNES)

Reviewed on May 01, 2013

E.V.O.: The Search for Eden really shouldn’t be fun. It’s an Action-RPG with almost no redeeming qualities, save for its one highly enjoyable system of evolution. The developers seem to have made the game entirely dependent on that feature, and amazingly, their gambit worked. Even though almost all of the gameplay consists of grinding for EVO (evolution) points to further tweak your Darwinian nightmare, the promise of that next upgrade is just enough motivation to keep playing. I find it ironic that a game about evolution would survive purely by appealing to an obscure niche.

Gargoyle's Quest II (NES)

Gargoyle's Quest II review (NES)

Reviewed on April 30, 2013

Released towards the end of the NES’ reign, Gargoyle’s Quest 2 was largely overlooked, in part because the original Game Boy title that preceded it was not exactly a household name.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown (PC)

XCOM: Enemy Unknown review (PC)

Reviewed on April 30, 2013

Whoops! Did you forget to upgrade your interceptors? Because now there's a UFO over Russia that you're not equipped to take down, and transferring or manufacturing more jets will take more time than you have. Oh, and the craft is going to shoot down your satellite. Oh, and Russia will pull its funding if that happens.

Sword of Hope (Game Boy)

Sword of Hope review (GB)

Reviewed on April 29, 2013

To me, it seems like Kemco focused too much of its attention on Sword of Hope's presentation and not enough in categories that actually matter. The end result is an RPG that serves as a mere skeleton for a great game.

Clash At Demonhead (NES)

Clash At Demonhead review (NES)

Reviewed on April 29, 2013

Even though it stumbles now and then, I think Clash at Demonhead is a game that people should seek out. It stands as a true example of forward thinking that was hampered by the technical limitations of the 8-bit era.

Nuts & Milk would be a great name for a buddy cop movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review (NES)

Reviewed on April 28, 2013

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES has a lot going for it, in spite of its famous flaws.

StarTropics (NES)

StarTropics review (NES)

Reviewed on April 27, 2013

StarTropics provides a fun and fascinating combination of various elements, but one miscalculation results in the title being tragically overlooked or even completely forgotten by many of today’s players, even those who might frequently delve into retro gaming.

Willow (NES)

Willow review (NES)

Reviewed on April 27, 2013

When you get to a town, count on walking through about 20 screens to find the five or so homes that you can actually enter to find information, items or a place to rest. Midway through the game, when you have to scale a pair of towers, enjoy seeing the same few screens as you ascend each one's multiple, identical floors.

Dr. Chaos (NES)

Dr. Chaos review (NES)

Reviewed on April 24, 2013

This could have been one of those forgotten 8-bit classics, but the poor controls, repetitive item farming, and awful music keep this decidedly in the B-tier of NES games.

Super Black Bass 3D (3DS)

Super Black Bass 3D review (3DS)

Reviewed on April 23, 2013

Too clusmy to be a sim. Too slow to be arcade. Too ugly to get a second look.

Very nearly lands on the platform of greatness, but accidentally slips through the edge instead.

Gitaroo Man is a dream for genre purists, and is destined to live on as a fondly remembered cult classic.

Excitebike (NES)

Excitebike review (NES)

Reviewed on April 20, 2013

Though it's solidly made, and features some slightly catchy tunes to go along with its somewhat-iconic NES visuals, Excitebike doesn't really offer players a lot of depth.
