Quackshot Starring Donald Duck (Genesis)

Quackshot Starring Donald Duck review (GEN)

Reviewed on March 23, 2013

Although the various equipment available had the potential to facilitate a rousing adventure that could have offered a true sense of exploration, most stages are instead hampered by extremely linear design with little or nothing worthwhile to see that’s off the beaten path. Item swapping mostly just amounts to busy work, necessary though it is, and that process becomes less tolerable each time you’re forced to take another run through an area because you lost your last life and were returned to the world map.

Gears of War: Judgment (Xbox 360)

Gears of War: Judgment review (X360)

Reviewed on March 22, 2013

Judgment is uneventful. It is a succession of disconnected rooms in which unremarkable firefights take place. We rarely even see our team moving from one area to the next; when a mission ends, we push a button, look over our scorecard, push another button, sit through a load screen, and find ourselves in the next area.

Fortune Street (Wii)

Fortune Street review (WII)

Reviewed on March 18, 2013

Before you begin a game, you can choose to play using either “Easy” rules or the “Standard” set. The latter is definitely the way to go, even if it comes with a hefty learning curve, because it has the potential to dramatically alter the way everything flows. Players can invest in stocks in any region, whether they own property there or not.

God of War: Ascension (PlayStation 3)

God of War: Ascension review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 17, 2013

Because its predecessors have already offered so many epic moments, Ascension falls prey to the double-edged sword of comparison: yes, the game offers more of the sort of fun you’ve come to expect, but it also fails to live up to the reputation that previous installments earned.

Tomb Raider (Xbox 360)

Tomb Raider review (X360)

Reviewed on March 16, 2013

Tomb Raider takes everything you think you know about one of gaming’s best known franchises, and reinvents it from the ground up.

Bloody Warriors: Shango no Gyakushuu (NES)

Bloody Warriors: Shango no Gyakushuu review (NES)

Reviewed on March 16, 2013

Bloody Warriors is best described as an RPG for RPG junkies. It's not good enough to inspire players to delve into the genre, but diehard fans like me are able to gain some enjoyment from taking another trip down a well-worn path.

Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk review (PS3)

Reviewed on March 13, 2013

Atelier Ayesha is a shallow affair. I like its looks and the sweet music it plays, but it just doesn’t appeal to me intellectually.

SimCity review (PC)

Reviewed on March 12, 2013

Social features bring something different to the new SimCity formula, but you might wish Maxis had left things well enough alone.

Romancing SaGa 3 (SNES)

Romancing SaGa 3 review (SNES)

Reviewed on March 07, 2013

Magic is generally bought in stores. At least I think it is… I never found much use for casting spells when I could use high-tier skills to erase thousands of hit points from enemies in a single attack. Since you regain all health after each battle, it's not like healing spells are all that useful, and characters tend to have 10 or more life points, which means they can fall that many times in battles before actually perishing. Thus, fights tend to be onslaughts of all-out offense until all the monsters are dead.

Half adventure game, half falling-to-your-death simulator.

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (3DS)

Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan review (3DS)

Reviewed on March 06, 2013

Etrian Odyssey IV, the latest installment in the series and the first to appear on the 3DS, does an excellent job of adding convenience without sacrificing any of the franchise’s charms. And don’t worry: it’s still really difficult.

Mr. Gimmick review (NES)

Reviewed on March 02, 2013

Mr. Gimmick (also known as Gimmick! in the original Japanese version) is a creative NES platformer that few people have ever heard of. Strangely enough, the only place outside of Japan where the game saw release was Scandinavia.

Bulletstorm (PlayStation 3)

Bulletstorm review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 24, 2013

There’s so many options and rewards from killing creatively, that Bulletstorm becomes probably the only FPS where shooting someone in the face feels like you’re doing it all wrong.

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (SNES)

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars review (SNES)

Reviewed on February 22, 2013

Some of the things which make combat so easy also add to its charm, because they make fights far more interactive than one would expect from a turn-based RPG. While tapping the attack button at the proper time during a character's turn will essentially make every blow they land a critical hit, it also adds to the fun, as this is one game where you won't be mindlessly tapping the attack button.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PlayStation 3)

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance review (PS3)

Reviewed on February 19, 2013

It always seemed like a matter of time before we got a game like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I just figured that I would be playing it on the Wii. Instead, 1:1 swordplay has managed to find full expression with the tried and true analog control sticks of the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection (PSP)

Generation of Chaos: Pandora's Reflection review (PSP)

Reviewed on February 18, 2013

Developers these days often try to pack as many features into their games as possible, but, for the most part, those features wind up feeling half-assed. In contrast, Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection emphasizes a single feature and streamlines everything else to accommodate it.
